A group of college friends in our mid-twenties stumbled upon this gem for an early summer beach trip. We all had a terrific weekend. The house was perfect, the weather was great, and the beach was a lot of fun. Thank you for your help in making it happen. We would definitely consider going to Dewey again; if we do, I'll be sure to keep your property on the top of the list.

My family had an absolutely fabulous time in this cute cottage by the sea. The location is perfect for a relaxing yet exciting vacation - it is steps away from the beach and there are plenty of restaurants and stores that are just as close. We didn't have to get in the car for an entire week, and we had plenty of fun, sun, and great meals. One night we ate at Woody's - and they have the remarkably delicious crab cakes. Also, Dewey sponsors movie nights and bonfires on the beach and both events were enjoyable. One day we walked to Rehoboth Beach (about 1 mile) but the Jolly Trolly is also a quick and easy way to get there. The cottage itself is charming. Though it is not large, we were very comfortable. The porch was a great place to sit and play cards. One night we enjoyed eating dinner on the picnic table. Overall, it was a memorable vacation for us and I am sure we will return.

This cute, little beach cottage is located in the heart of all the action! I only needed to move my car once and that was to hit the outlets which was only about 10 minutes away. The house is comfortable (didn't want to get off the couch!) and has all the amenities you need. Steps away from the beach too!! Excellent owner with great communication. I hope to come back again next year.

CUTE !! CUTE !!! CUTE !!!!!
CUTE !! CUTE !!! CUTE !!!!!
My wife & I have stayed in this cottage several years in row with an old friend & his wife. It was our 'reunion' week every year........no little ones to keep track of, just the four of us enjoying the surroundings and getting a well deserved break. We always had a blast!! The house is adorable, comfortable and a throw back to an era gone by. It is the beach at it's BEST! The house is centrally located in the beach block tucked away off the street. You never have to get in your car for anything----except maybe grocery shopping---- and all the restaurants & bars are right there: far enough away that you don't hear anything; close enough to them, so you can stumble home......if need be. A great place to go for two couples that want to 'get out of town' and enjoy themselves! BUT 2013............will be a year in transition. My wife & I have decided that we want to bring our 2 children for a week at the beach-----and this is a perfect cottage for the four of us. Everything is so 'compact' that you don't have to be constantly stressing as to what the kids are doing. Our kids are now age 2 & 4, and for the next several years, this is where we want to start making our 'beach vacation' memories. As to our friends that we have shared our previous years with,..........they also have booked a week for themselves & their daughter here at 'Le Petit Plaisir'. The four of us still plan on getting away together, but now it will be relegated to a long weekend in May or Sept. And where else would be going but back here. It is a great little beach cottage that we have enjoyed immensely! A big 'Thank you' to the owners for being so accommodating & working with us all these years!! With best regards, Patrick & Kim (and I speak for Sean & Sue too!)

Owner response: Thank you soo much for your kind words! We are small, but mighty! We are thrilled that you come back each year. I can do a Mon-Fri rental during the summer (because I KNOW the weekend will rent) if you want to avoid the weekend nightlife with the little ones. Just let me know who you are, when you email me!
We have stayed at the cottage several times now and absolutely love it! Its the perfect location, steps from the beach, which makes it easy to come and go as needed during the day. Within walking distance to so many restaurants and a short drive (or walk if you are adventurous) to Rehoboth as well. The size is perfect for one to two couples or one couple with another adult, or even children. Plus with the cottage being dog friendly its a godsend! It has everything you need for resting and sleeping and the front covered porch is a great place to have breakfast or read. The bathroom is adorable as well. Would highly recommend a stay here!

Hi Suzie, We had a wonderful time with our grandchildren. It was so easy to walk back and forth the few steps to the beach. The cottage was immaculate when we arrived. We were able to cook meals. Everything was there for our convenience. When we decided to eat out, the restaurants were only 1 block away. What you advertised is what we got. We are hoping to go back again, maybe this time alone.

About the owner: We live in PA and love coming to the beach with our children. We are long-time Dewey/Rehoboth people, who have been coming to the beach for more years than we will admit.
Why the Owner Chose Dewey Beach:
We love Dewey's location and unique mix it allows of quiet weeks on the beach and fun on the weekends. We also love that we don't have to cart our older children around, because they can take the Jolly Trolly back and forth to the Rehoboth boardwalk, shops, etc, while our younger children can enjoy other activites such as the beach, the rides, etc. My husband and I love the tax-free shopping at the outlets, the restaurants, biking to Bethany, etc.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our house is located in the north end of Dewey, on the ocean side of New Orleans St (New Orleans Street is between the Starboard and Bottle & Cork), close to both the beach and the Jolly Trolly stop. It's tucked into a quiet alcove, behind another house. Our kids don't have to cross Route 1 to go to and from the beach. We LOVE the bath/shower being in a separate room from the sink/toilet, because the bathroom doesn't get steamed up when one of us is showering and the other is trying to primp (NO frizzed hair!) and the kids can use the bathroom, while someone's taking a shower or bath.
