Love this property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! The property was everything that it was advertised to be. Very clean and cozy, having a full kitchen and a clothes washer and dryer was wonderful. We could actually hear and smell the ocean from our house! Myron was extremely helpful throughout our stay. I would highly recommend this property to anyone. We can't wait to come back!

Oasis in the middle of Dewey Beach

  • 5 of 5

Located off a courtyard behind another cottage, this cottage is a private, quiet retreat from the beach and lively Dewey Beach strip. Modest in size, but perfectly comfortable for 4 adults. The porch in front is a wonderful place to wind down, grill, eat, and enjoy being outside. Located 100 yards from the beach entrance, you can easily come and go from the beach all day.

One thing to note: the cottage is part of a duplex. There is a wall that divides the deck and provides privacy, but you will see the neighbors leaving and returning if you are out front. You'll also be able to hear them enjoying their deck. Our neighbors were quiet and respectful, so this wasn't an issue.

Cute, Cozy and Convenient

  • 4 of 5

This cottage was cute, cozy and very convenient to the beach--just a short walk and you are there! We could walk to the Dewey Beach restaurants and we were also just short distance from Rehoboth Beach. There is a nice deck and small fenced garden out front and the cottage is back off of the street, giving you some privacy.

Fantastic Cottage & Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I come here every year. We love this spot! It is perfectly located. Walk out the front door and walk 30 seconds down a quiet street to the beach. Hungry? There are literally a dozen + spots within 1-2 blocks where you can grab drinks and food. Dewey Beer Company, a small craft beer brewery and kitchen is a must visit ( Across the street is the Starboard ( DO NOT MISS their brunch. Dozens of other bars, restaurants, live music venues, bike rentals, kayaking, jet skis, and other activities are only a short walk away. If you want to explore, Rehoboth Beach (more great restaurants and shopping), Cape Henlopen (great bike trails, hiking and beaches), Outlets (premium shopping), Bethany Beach, Ocean City (old school boardwalk, amusement park rides, fishing, etc.) are all very nearby.

Cottage comes fully equipped with an outdoor deck and grill, TV, WIFI, beach chairs, fully equipped kitchen, AC, etc. Remember that the shoulder season's (March/April and September/October) are also great times to visit. Nice weather and no crowds.

Love, love, love! Perfect location and the owners are a pleasure to work with. We have spent several long weekends here in the off season and will most definitely be back every chance we get!
