Dewey Beach cottage description

Spring at Salty Kiss Cottage...every day wake up to the Ocean Waves and then enjoy a wonderful stroll with your friend,your dogs,a good book...on the ever mesmerizing ocean beaches.Did you say afternoon nap in front of 2 fireplaces ? Yes!
Take in lunch or dinner at many fine Rehoboth Restaurants!
Come and recharge your lives at our beautiful beaches and enjoy the wonderful spring & summer weather!
The Stars come out Early for spectacular viewing!
Spend a romantic getaway at our lovely
...Salty Kiss Cottage - just steps to the beach……

Take time to enjoy autumn and winter at Dewey Beach and realize some of these best kept secrets of this time of the season---- the waves are dramatic, much more so than in the summer because the winds are higher and whip them up into whitecaps of froth. Storms leave wonderful shells on the beach and there are fewer people to find them, so you can find some tokens of perfection from the sea. Salty Kiss has 2 electric wood stoves, so you can come in from a brisk walk on the beach and curl up in front of a 'fire' with a good book or a movie-(each room has it's own indivdual thermostat controlled baseboard heating as well). A long weekend at Salty Kiss Cottage is like a visit to grandma’s house…it evokes another era, a simpler time of home-cooked meals, freshly baked cookies, curling up with a quilt made by loving hands. In short, autumn and winter are the time to slow down, simplify, smell the salty sea air and enjoy the coziness of a house that was made with love. Re-connect, rejuvenate and rediscover what life is all about---in a simple cottage by the sea.

Consider spending Thanksgiving or Christmas at Salty Kiss Cottage. We also decorate the cottage for the holidays and we would entertain any specific ideas or themes - just ask!
We have cooked many wonderful celebration meals here over the past few years and now so can you! Treat your family to an old fashioned Christmas in a small beach town; enjoy hot toddy's after brisk walks on the beach, great shell seeking with no crowds, twinkling white lights on the picket fence. We have the best of Comcast, Internet, and Netflix available for our guest. Bring your furry family member too. Pet friendly from Sept 1-May 31

Salty Kiss Cottage, a charming ocean block cottage four houses from the beach and no streets to cross. Cottage includes a full kitchen with white cabinets, blue counter tops, refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave, island bar and recessed lights, open beam ceiling. A TV and CD/DVD/VCR players offer after sun or rainy day entertainment. Enjoy the flat screen TV.
Take advantage of the lovely screened-in porch for ocean breezes with your morning coffee or cocktails at sunset. Another special perk at Salty Kiss is the convenient herb garden right outside the door so you can season your dinner or salad with fresh clippings from the garden, many growing all year round'.
The cottage has an off-street parking space since parking in Dewey is at a premium. Street parking is also allowed with a permit. An enclosed hot outdoor shower that has a private entrance from the master bedroom is a nice way to end the beach part of your day.There is full bath and a half bath also.
Steps from the beach and Dewey nightlife, the best of all worlds in a quiet cluster of cottages. Responsible adults only, we love our little place and you will too!
Salty Kiss Cottage has new queen size beds in two bedrooms and new twin beds in one bedroom with a large L-shaped sofa in the living room. The master bedroom has a private half-bath with a private entrance to the outdoor shower---the preferred shower for all beach lovers--shower by the morning sunlight or the evening moonlight.
We are pet friendly from Labor day to Memorial day. No smoking inside the cottage. No large groups, we can legally accommodate six- people plus 2 children maximum. There are many families, so please-no loud parties after 11 p.m. We want you to enjoy our cottage and your stay in Dewey, but please respect the neighbors too.
There’s a gas grill in the private courtyard, for dinners outside as the sun goes down. Light the Tiki torches and bring out the chardonnay while you grill fresh fish from Big Fish Market up the street and savor sweet white corn.
Take a walk on the beach at sunset…or under the full moon. Salty Kiss Cottage…the kind of beach vacation you enjoyed as a kid, the kind you want your kids to remember. Salty Kiss Cottage and Dewey Beach…a special place and a special time…for you and your friends and family.

              Manager info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About: I started a local citizens’ group to protect and preserve Dewey for generations to come, and was elected to the Town Council in 2011 by a majority of Dewey property owner voters.

              Why Dewey Beach:
              I loved the California cottage feel and the white picket fence, a few houses from the ocean; it reminds me of vacations as a child with my mother in a small town on the Texas Gulf Coast.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              I like to be able to walk to everything, the excitement of the town, and the dog friendly beach for my dog, Snickers. I try to provide a vacation for families that is the way vacations are supposed to be: award winning clean beach and ocean waves, simple ocean breezes on the screened in porch, and time to unwind and reconnect with family and friends.
