About Cindy and Tony Crane

When we first bought 217 Rodney Street, the house was abandoned and over grown. But the structure was sound. Over the years, we have lovingly updated and expanded the home without losing the architecture we loved so much. We are now improving it again - and expanding the kitchen. We have raised our kids here and entertained many beloved friends and family members. Our Rehoboth beach home is absolutely our 'pure happy place.' We love it here. We hope you will too.

Why Cindy and Tony Crane chose South Rehoboth

Our home is a cozy, comfy, large 5 bedroom home on an over-sized lot that is easy walking distance to town, boardwalk, restuarants and shops, Funland, beach, Silver Lake and park - All this, plus has a beautiful view.

What makes this house unique

This classic Rehoboth Beach cottage represents an updated twist on 'old Rehoboth.' Time slows down here. The many nooks allow for cozy group visits - or time alone for all your guests. And you can't beat the location for its quiet street and proximity to everything you come to the beach for.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

A bunch of friends (with young children) stayed in this house over a weekend in September. It was the perfect house for us... clean and cozy but with lots of room for everyone and a short walk into town or to the beach. We also really enjoyed all of the screened in porches, the out-back area (with fire pit), and fenced in yard. Our stay was a really great one!

Great house with lots of space

  • 5 of 5

A group of 8 of us stayed here for a week in August 2016. We were 3 couples and 2 singles. There was plenty of space for everyone and we never felt cramped. There was always a place to get away to find some solitude if needed. They have a hammock in the back cottage that was a perfect place to relax and stare up at the trees and day and night sky. As the occupant of the master bedroom...we loved the private screened in porch that is off of it with a porch swing. The porch swing on the back cottage is great too. The house was always nice and cool...the air conditioner worked great. We had two very minor issues not even worth sharing the details of...but they were addressed and corrected IMMEDIATELY. We felt like valued renters. I would rent this house again if we were to get another group this size together.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home in a very convenient location to both the beach and downtown Rehoboth. Plenty of room for our party of twelve and two dogs. Very quiet and beautiful neighborhood. The Cranes and property manager Tracy were very pleasant to deal with from beginning to end. We all highly recommend this perfect getaway and are looking forward to returning in the near future.

Awesome home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is an older home, which only adds to the experience. It is well kept with lots of space. We had 12 total, 6 adults, 4 under 10 and two teens. Plenty of room to spread out and excellent space for kids. The small house in the back had a small fridge with TV and kids loved having their own space and a place they could get their own drinks and snacks. We loved the porches and back yard/fire pit and hammock. Definitely a family place. We adore family time and this being off the beaten path gives you the feeling you are away from it all but just a short walk and you have all the activity you may want. The owners and property management folks were also fantastic to work with. Highly suggest this home for a family vacation!

Family friendly

  • 4 of 5

Quite impressed with this family friendly rental. We had a group of 18 from four different families and with the multiple porches, patio and separate game house, we surprisingly did not feel crowded. Also , we appreciated that the beach and town were easily walkable but we were away from the largest crowds . The hot tub had some issues but, the manager was easily reachable and quite helpful.

Great September beach week

  • 5 of 5

My family of 7 adults, one child and two dogs enjoyed a wonderful week at the Crane cottage. A 10 minute walk to the beach or town made everything we wanted to do easy and convenient. The house had more room than we could use, but that allowed us to spread out and be comfortable. Our dogs enjoyed the fenced in back yard. Although there are ample beds and bathrooms for a large group, I would not have been comfortable in the common areas with any more adults than we had; the living room seats 5 or 6 comfortably and the kitchen is small. However, there are lots of quaint and cozy spots for small groups or private relaxation. We spent most mornings and late afternoons on the front porch looking out on the quiet, pleasant neighborhood.
