Owner Comments: Our family of six (2 parents, 2 kids and 2 dogs, Chunk and Lily) has loved and lived in this, our vacation home, for many years. Whenever we are here on Rodney Street, our lives slow down. We read. We laugh. We eat. We dance and carry on. We hope you will enjoy our home as much as we do and treat it as you would your own!

Sincerely,

Cindy and Tony

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2004

                              About the owner: When we first bought 217 Rodney Street, the house was abandoned and over grown. But the structure was sound. Over the years, we have lovingly updated and expanded the home without losing the architecture we loved so much. We have raised our kids here and entertained many beloved friends and family members. Our Rehoboth beach home is absolutely our 'pure happy place.' We love it here. We hope you will too. Best, Cindy and Tony Crane

                              Why the Owner Chose Rehoboth Beach:
                              It is a cozy, comfy, large 5 bedroom home on an over-sized lot, which is well located and has a beautiful view. Our patio and game house, as well as hot tub make this place special.
