  • a good stay

    "Three families, 8 of us, stayed here right after the labor's day. Excellent location - beach access is literally 1 minute away on the same block. It was quiet, that part of the beach is very family/pet friendly. House is in reasonably good condition, kitchen well equipped, and we had good time."

  • Beach House, Dewey Beach

    "Lovely home on a quiet street, steps from restaurants and the beach. Home sported a large 2nd floor covered porch perfect for relaxing and having morning coffee in a family oriented neighborhood. A little home away from home with all the amenities."

  • Great place and wonderful hospitality!

    "Thank you Fred for your hospitality! You responded to all my inquiries and even let me borrow your personal beach umbrella and chair! Your condo was a perfect 3 night stay for my family…I really appreciated that you would accommodate a stay of under a week; I couldn’t find another appropriate place for us to stay for the time frame we needed. My family enjoyed Dewey Beach and we did splurge one night and ate on the roof top of Two Seas Restaurant. It was wonderful!!!! I would recommend your place to anyone visiting Dewey!"

  • Best vacation ever!

    "We have been coming to Dewey beach for 5 summers with our daughter and dog and this was the best rental ever. At the condo my daughter immediately met another girl and they became BFF's for the week. We enjoyed long walks on the beach in the morning and late afternoon with our dog. And we could chose either laying on the beach or swimming in the condo pool during the days. Having sheets and towels provided was a giant plus, as well as laundry and dish soap and the items you use just a little of during the week and didn't have to bring or buy. Beach chairs, umbrella and even a "wagon" to bring stuff to the beach were all in the hall closet. It was perfect."

Dewey Beach Travel Tips

Dewey Beach for Spring Break

Since 1981, Dewey Beach, Delaware has been considered a town only for Spring Break. It developed a reputation for being a wild “party town” not unlike Panama City Beach vacations or Cancun, though it lacks the tropical elements of these other locations. Despite being less tropical, Dewey Beach has much to offer the vacationer. You do not have to rent Dewey Beach vacation rentals to be with the Spring Break crowd. Instead, throughout the year families and couples travel to Dewey Beach for the beauty, attractions and small community that await them. With Dewey Beach condos, you have all the amenities you could want, such as a kitchen, deck, and views of the sunrise each morning. There are about 300 residents throughout the year, whereas in summer, there are 30,000 on the small strip of island between the Atlantic Ocean and Rehoboth Bay.
