"We rented last minute in August 2014 and were lucky this place was still available. I give it five stars not because it's perfect, but because it's a good value and safe bet. The owners were there, but we didn't see them much, and they seemed really nice. They were helpful and normal and we had no problems at all with getting our deposit back. So I'd say this is a trustworthy, affordable rental. No surprises, no horror stories.
The price of this place is pretty low for Rehoboth, but the location is a compromise. It's .7 miles to the beach and boardwalk. I would say that if you are young and don't have small children, then you can easily walk. I ran there every morning. But if you have small children or older folks, or if you are carrying a bunch of beach stuff, then you will need to drive. We drove. Suggest checking out Google maps streetview to see the street.
If you have to drive, parking is not that difficult. During the day, we never had a problem parking near the beach. Parking only becomes difficult in the evening, especially on weekends, when everyone is going out to restaurants and bars.
Some people say rent a bike, but I brought a bike with me, and never rode it anywhere after the first couple of times I nearly got run over. The house did have an extra bike or two, but they weren't in great working order. Can't recommend planning to bike anywhere.
The place itself is as pictured - it's simple, nothing fancy. It was pretty clean, but I think the cleaning lady was in a bit of a hurry, because some things were let go, like dust under one of the beds and some mildew on the bottom corner of the shower curtain. But it was minimal, and overall the place was free of dust and grime, the kitchen was very clean, and I felt comfortable there and not worried about germs or bugs (there were none). The furniture was simple but seemed new enough.
There are only two negatives I would point out. One is that the beds and linens were really uncomfortable. The sheets didn't seem to fit the beds properly and would get all bunched up. If I went there again, I'd bring my own sheets and pillows. This year they got new mattresses, so hopefully the bed situation is better now.
Also, the bedrooms are small. The two of us felt a bit cramped in the bedroom with the larger bed (queen?). I'd say this is a good place for 3 or 4 people, but more than that and you can expect to feel crowded."
