Dewey Beach house description

LAST WEEK OF AUGUST IS ONLY ONE AVAILABLE FOR SUMMER 2014 - BOOK IT NOW!

NEW SOLAR ELECTRIC SYSTEM - NOW WE MAKE OUR OWN POWER FROM SUNSHINE!

SeaGarden Cottage is a two-story home just over a block from the beach, nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and Rehoboth Bay in the classic seaside town of Dewey Beach. It's the quintessential beach bungalow, built in the 1930's but recently expanded and remodeled. Beautifully appointed and well maintained, it combines traditional beach cottage charm with modern comforts and amenities (including high-speed wireless Internet). It's our treasured escape from the workaday world and we're pleased to share it with you.

Enter through the bright front porch with picnic table and butterfly chairs into the main living space centered around a large sofa, 44' flat-panel TV w/Blu-Ray player and stereo system, stone fireplace and wood-beam walls, opening into a sun-filled dining area and gleaming galley kitchen with complete cookware, utensils and dishes. To the right is one bedroom with built-in dresser, two small closets, a chest of drawers and full-size bed, adjoining a full bath with tiled walk-in shower, and a knotty pine paneled den with Ikea Beddinge Lovas sofabed, a closet, 32' flat-panel TV w/VCR (and many tapes, mostly for kids).

Upstairs is the large master bath with tub, laundry room with stacking washer/dryer and closet space, master bedroom with an extremely comfortable queen-size bed and chest of drawers, and third bedroom with antique twin beds and a crib, a chest of drawers and a large closet.

Our vacation home by the sea is perfect for families (crib and highchair provided) or couples seeking a cozy retreat just a short stroll from the ocean and local restaurants. Walk out the front door and you can see the dunes and in a couple minutes you've got your toes in the ocean! After a day at the beach rinse off in the private outdoor shower (hot & cold water), cook out on the fenced rear deck and relax on the enclosed porch. On cool evenings curl up by the glowing gas fireplace. Or hop on your bike for the short ride up Bayard Ave. along Silver Lake to downtown Rehoboth, or take the stunningly beautiful 8-mile cruise south through Delaware Seashore State Park to Indian River Inlet with its immense undeveloped beach and bathhouse w/concessions (plus great striped bass and flounder fishing!).

True to the name SeaGarden Cottage, in season (~June-Sept.) there is full vegetable garden for you to pick and enjoy, along with various herbs and flowers as well.

As usual with beach houses, you'll need to supply your own bed linens and towels (except for crib sheets/blanket).

Our rental process is easy: 1) You can 'Book It' instantly (we'll respond within 24 hours) or contact us via email using the form on this page. 2) We'll email a temporary reservation confirmation and contract for you to fill out and send back with a refundable deposit within 7 days. (We usually take the deposit by check and just hold onto it w/o actually depositing in the bank unless necessary.) If the contract is not received by then, the reservation will be released. Your vacation week is confirmed when the contract and deposit are in our hands and you receive email acknowledgement. 3) First half (50%) of rent is due 8 weeks before check-in (OR upon reserving if booking online through this website) and the balance 4 weeks later. After receipt of the final rent payment we will email access details and additional info to help make your stay enjoyable and relaxing.

In season (June-Sept.) we typically rent by the week, but will sometimes consider a 4-5 day mid-week rental when we can use the weekend ourselves. Off-season (Oct.-May) has a 3-day minimum; please contact us via email for off-season rates and availability. SeaGarden Cottage is usually winterized and unavailable for rental from December through February.

SeaGarden Cottage has gone green! We've installed a new 6 kW solar system from Sungevity to meet all your energy needs with power from the sun!

                            Excellent place. Perfect location...and pet friendly!!! Very comfortable, clean, and well appointed. Everything you need including bikes, beach stuff, and a great kitchen. Located close to GREAT places to eat like Starboard and Ed's Fish place. One mile away from Rehoboth boardwalk. We will definitely be back.

                            Recommended for: Pet owners, families with teenagers, families with young children, tourists without a car.

                            Owner response: Mariana & David, so glad you enjoyed everything, that's what we're aiming for! There's nothing quite like an outdoor shower after a summer day at the beach...

Easy walk to the beach with the kids. Slept well in the beds and in general just had a wonderful, relaxing time. Would highly recommend this property.

                            We just got back from our vacation in Dewey and our stay at Sea Garden Cottage. This home is by far the nicest and cleanest home we have found in Dewey. The home was so charming and the beds were very comfortable. We felt right at home our entire stay. The upstairs bath is very large and has lots of counter space. The front porch and back deck areas also add a great deal of extra space and the fresh vegetable and flower gardens added a great home feel. The owners, Lee & Kathy, were great to deal with. They were so fast at responding to us every time we contacted them right from the start. They were also so organized and had everything including instructions for everything in the house as well as recommendations for restaurants and other helpful tips put together in an album. We were a short walk to the beach (1 block-just a few minutes) and close to many nice restaurants and other businesses. We will definitely stay at Sea Garden Cottage again and can't wait to return. We all had a great time including our 2 year old golden retriever, Gracie. Thanks again to Lee and Kathy for a great place to stay and all of your help throughout the process. Hope to be back next year:) Amy & Jeff S.

                            Owner response: Glad you enjoyed the cottage and had a great time in Dewey, "cleanest beach in the US" for water quality, so I guess we fit right in! Speaking of clean, thanks again for leaving the cottage practically immaculate, we were really impressed... sure makes our job a lot easier. Please come back again next year, Amy & Jeff!

                            Hi Lee and Kathy, Thank you for sharing your wonderful beach cottage with my family. We had a terrific stay at Dewey Beach. Your home is lovely, it was just the right size for us, in the right spot, with a lovely garden and so much more! The beach at Dewey is more than we expected. The town is lively and welcoming. We got to watch the running of the bulls sponsored by Starboard!! The restaurants and shops in Dewey and Rehoboth were great. I especially liked the Back Porch where my family took me for my birthday dinner. It was a great suggestion! We are hoping to come again next year during the same week. Please let me know when we can make a commitment. Thanks again! Happy Summer...

                            I agree with my sister, who is a very picky person when it comes to choosing vacation homes, this was by far one of the warmest homes we've ever stayed at. First of all, the homeowners extended their home to us again, once we lost our original vacation week this past summer due to the passing of our mother. So, we are so very thankful for the opportunity to get away and let down our hair. Second, as my sis says, it is a beautiful home filled with so much warmth and amenities. The garden was lovely, the house immaculate and the proximity to the beach and other Dewey Beach favorites, like the Rusty Rudder was great. My mind keeps taking me back to the enjoyable, relaxing time I had at your home and I can't wait to come back again! Thanks again for allowing us to stay!

                            Recommended for: Romantic getaway, pet owners, people with disabilities, families with teenagers, age 55+, families with young children, girls getaway, tourists without a car.

                            Owner response: I think y'all had must've had the nicest few days of the year so far! Glad you were able to relax and enjoy yourselves and that SeaGarden Cottage was so much to your liking - hopefully next year will be even better!

                            I can't say enough about this house. The pictures do not do it justice. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay at their home great. From the outside garden to the beautiful decorated rooms, the beach chairs, candles, coffee pots, I could go on and on. I could feel the warmth and love that was poured into this cottage the moment I stepped through the door. The home was excellent for small children, close to the beach and one of the cleanest rentals I have ever stayed in. We didn't want to leave and will be back......... Thank you Lee and Kathy for created a bit of heaven by the sea for us to enjoy.

                            Owner response: We are so very happy that you enjoyed the cottage and had a nice time with your family, Katherine - you deserve it after all you've been through! We have to admit that your kind words nearly brought us to tears - it's a joy when our guests genuinely appreciate the labor of love we've put into our home-away-from-home. We'll be heading down there ourselves the next couples weekends to enjoy the remaining warm days, pick the last few veggies and start winding things down for the winter. Please do come stay with us again next season!

                            Lee and Kathy have set up such a nice beach house. Don't let the looks fool you--the house is bigger than it looks. Our little family of me, my husband, and our one-year-old son had plenty of room, and we really didn't use the den or the main level bedroom. Having a crib there was super helpful. Kitchen is small but gorgeous. Everything is as shown in photos and super comfortable. Our son enjoyed the kids DVDs. My favorite part was the outside shower--what a treat! Short walk to the beach with chairs and a cart provided. Oh, and the garden is so nice. I don't have a green thumb at all, so it was nice to be able to pick fresh veggies and share that experience with our son. My husband did water the plants, though ;) Thank you!

                            Owner response: We are SO glad that y'all enjoyed the cottage, Lindsay! Especially that you and your little boy took advantage of the garden - you were there at a good time for that, when the weather is so nice. And thanks to your husband for watering the plants, it's much appreciated. Please come back again!

                            We rented this house for our annual summer vacation and were looking for a place that suited our family, ages 6 months to 65 plus a small canine companion. This house was the perfect fit! It is spacious enough for all the beach neccessities and all the stuff that comes along with a baby. The finishes are beautiful and the house is extremely clean and well maintained. The rental process was so smooth and I truly felt like the owners were invested in making sure we enjoyed their house and had a wonderful vacation. They share their garden with guests and clearly open up their beautiful home to others to enjoy. The first night we were there we were already discussing renting it again the next year. Thank you so much for allowing our family to enjoy your home!

                            Owner response: You are very welcome, Summer, we're happy to share SeaGarden Cottage with your extended family! Thanks very much for your kind words, we work hard to make the rental process as easy as possible and to keep the cottage in tip-top condition, so we really appreciate the positive feedback and we hope that you do come back again next year. Just remember to reserve early because we book up quick!

                            Our stay at the Sea Garden Cottage was again "made to order" for the second year. The accommodations within this quaint house allowed us to enjoy all the amenities of home. The house is well-kept, clean, the furnishings are updated, comfortable and welcome every age. Above all, the owners go out of their way to offer the bounties of their garden (hence the name), and provide personal information about Dewey Beach and the surrounding areas, including great restaurants, entertainment, markets and beach ordinances. This beach house is within walking distance to the beach, and it is very possible to park your car, walk, bike or utilize the trolleys throughout the entire week. It is very easy to feel at home here!

                            Owner response: You were our first returning guests, Ed and Lorell! [But thankfully not the last.] It makes us really happy that you took full advantage of the cottage, the area and especially the garden, because for us it is not just a rental beach house, it is a labor of love. Next summer we just have to remember reserve a week for ourselves too, because this year the weeks booked up so fast they were all gone before we realized it! Take care and please come back again.

                            We had a great time in Dewey at the Sea Garden Cottage! The space is perfect, beautifully decorated and well-maintained. They have everything you need for a relaxing vacation. The fenced in deck, outdoor shower, and gardens were a nice retreat in the morning and at the end of the day. The owners answered all of our questions and we are grateful to have found this jewel in the heart of our favorite vacation spot. The girls and the dogs are looking forward to next year already! Sincerely, Jennifer, Tessa & Ann Marie.

As you know you're welcome back next year for the Greyhound's "Reach The Beach" event, hopefully the weather will be just as nice and for sure the cottage will be even better. Thanks again for staying with us and for writing a review!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2010

                          About the owner: Lee is the bioinformatics & IT director at the Johns Hopkins Center for Inherited Disease Research, Kathy is a social worker with Hospice of the Chesapeake. We love to garden and to travel far and wide but love even more coming home to our beach house in Dewey - and now our garden is here and you can share in the bounty! This really is our vacation home and our favorite place so we come to Dewey Beach every chance we get.

                          Why the Owner Chose Dewey Beach:
                          Our families have been coming to the Rehoboth area for generations, but we looked for a place at the beach for over 10 years before we found and fell in love with SeaGarden Cottage - the beach house of our dreams. Dewey Beach is the prototypical beach town, two blocks wide with the Atlantic Ocean on one side and Rehoboth Bay on the other. There are dozens of restaurants from coffee shops to pizza (Grotto, Mama Celeste's) to Mexican (Que Pasa - scrumptious fish tacos) to fresh local seafood and steaks (Port) to seafood (The Cove - also has all-you-can-eat crabs) and delicious American fare (Woody's Cafe). Anything you can't find is just a mile away in Rehoboth - including the incredible Blue Moon and Back Porch restaurants, sushi on the roof at The Cultured Pearl, and the original Dogfish Head brewpub! There are many watering holes like the world-famous Starboard and arguably the best live-music scene of any Atlantic Coast beach town. There are several beach supply shops, a marina where you can rent a boat (can also rent jet-skis at Ruddertowne) or put in your own boat, and just down Rt. 1 is the Old Inlet Bait & Tackle that has absolutely everything for fishing (including a rod/reel repair shop), crabbing and clamming. Whether you love reading on the beach all day or shopping at the tax-free outlets or taking the kids to a water park or spending evenings on the Boardwalk (personally, I've never lost my love of Skee-Ball), or board-sailing the back bay or surfing or skim-boarding the ocean waves, or taking in an incredible live music show at the one & only Bottle & Cork or having crabs outside at Ed's Chicken & Crabs or a truly fine meal following drinks on the roof deck at Two Seas or fishing for that big striped bass from the jetty at Indian River Inlet (or drifting for flounder on the sandy flats of the bay or from the fishing pier in Lewes) or just shelling and enjoying the waves on the beach, it's ALL here within a stone's throw of SeaGarden Cottage!

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          SeaGarden Cottage is cozy and comfortable but there's plenty of room so it never feels cramped - a small house that lives big! It has space enough for eight yet is small enough to feel like a private retreat for two. SeaGarden Cottage a true original that has been been lovingly maintained and gracefully updated. At SeaGarden you can park your car and not have to get in it again until you leave (unless you want to, of course). You can walk out the front door in the early morning and stroll down the wide beautiful beach then stop in for breakfast at Sunrise (old-school diner - friendly cheap and plenty) or Sharkey's (breakfast burritos!) or at the Fifer Orchards market down the street (where you can also pick up some gourmet groceries, fresh veggies, fruit or flowers). Walk down to the corner and jump on the open-air Jolly Trolley to do some shopping (and, perhaps, buying) or just check out the Boardwalk. Or walk the other way towards the bay and put your kayak in at the cute little Read St. park while your kids play on shore. We love picking fresh tomatoes and peppers right outside the back door all summer. We love riding our bikes to Fifer Orchards market and into Rehoboth for dinner. We love walking hand-in-hand to take in a free music festival at the Rusty Rudder entertainment complex... and then walking home through the cool ocean breezes late that night. We love the laid-back Dewey Beach attitude - 'It's a way of life!'
