Property description

Come stay at The Whaling Cottage. Yes, this was once located on the Beach in Rehoboth Beach, only to be rolled up with mules, and logs, to its home now! Visit this seaside retreat and relax. Enjoy the pics from the past that hang in the living room. The Whaling Cottage has been updated over the years, to a newer kitchen, bath, electric, etc. Freshly painted, and newly carpeted for 2015! Also, New mattresses on Master and Double Beds. We take pride in our home, and it's cleanliness. It is located on a wide, quiet street. Close to everything. You can walk HALF BLOCK to the boardwalk, and beach. (Actually we are located 5 buildings from the ocean. ) If it gets too hot, leave your chair, go back to the house, relax, and cool off, have lunch, or whatever! Maybe a beer!

This home is maintained, and cleaned, by the owners every week! If there is a problem, no problem. You never have to worry about being inconvenienced. We truly take care for our guests. Our cell number is given to every guests for emergencies or any other problem.

The duplex has very comfortable furniture and bedding. We have just purchased, in Oct. 2012, a new queen size sleeper sofa with a memory mattress. We have also purchased two new leather chairs in living room that swivel. For 2015 we have quality new Serta mattresses -queen in the master, and a new double in the second bdrm. Our spreads are quality, and so are our pillows. The kitchen is very well stocked with everything you will need. Non Stick fry pans, steamer, roasting pan, cookie sheets, cupcake pans, can opener, blender, barbecue tools, etc, etc.

Sit out on the large/new deck at night and relax looking at the ocean, the beautiful view of the stars, moon, or sunset. If you do not like the sand, you can sunbathe on the deck! Two loungers are there for your use.

You can walk to all the shops, restaurants/bars, day spas, convenience stores, etc. No need to ever move your car once you have grocery shopped.

There is a bike rack located in the back yard, if you would like to bike ride to everything. Rehoboth now has a bike path from Rehoboth, to the town of Lewes. It is great for the children because there are no cars allowed. You can take the path from our seaside retreat by going from Gordons Pond, State Park. It is North of us (approx., 1/2 mile), all the way to the quaint town of Lewes w/o any traffic. A few steps to the boardwalk to enjoy, the rides, arcades, minature golf, or just eat Grotto pizza or Thrashers Fries!! There are so many exciting things to do!!

No matter what you plan on doing, you will love Rehoboth Beach.

Book now and avoid all the extra Realtor Fees!!!!!

Note: Sand toys for your use by outside shower along with boogie boards and a umbrella. Books, games, and kites in laundry room for everyone's use.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: We are local owners, so we are close for any problems or questions. We love to travel. We have two grown girls. No grandchildren yet, just grand dogs!! We also have a Westie, which is like our third child. We are dog lovers!!

Why the Owner Chose Rehoboth Beach:
My husband and I chose Rehoboth Beach, DE because it had the feel of a small town with values. You can also have guests stay and not have to worry about being close to a large highway. The town is small and quaint. The people are nice. The town has everything you would need if you do not want to move the car.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
When staying here you will experience the enjoyment of listening to the sea gulls, walking the beach/boardwalk, or taking the little ones to the rides. You can stroll down to the beach, leave your chairs and blanket -go back- eat lunch, put the children down for a nap, and go back later. At night the best thing is to sit on the deck and gaze at the ocean. The most unique benefit of our beach home is how close we are to the beach/boardwalk, and rides. We are just far enough from the small busy town (four blks to ctr. of town) so we are not bothered by the noise, BUT close enough to walk there, if you wish to go enjoy all the benefits of the small town. It is truly a great beach location and beach home. I am so happy we chose our location.
