3 bedrooms/ 2 baths/ Bay Views from Townhome
Though I live in St. Croix, I was born in Delaware and always came to the beach with my family during the summer. We enjoyed jumping through the ocean waves, having picnics under an umbrella and going to the boardwalk at night. We kept our boat in Dewey Beach at Pier Point Marina. In those days, Snug Harbor was a bay front apartment that my mother always admired. One day as we cruised by on the boat, she called out to the owner, “Please call us if you are ever interested in selling!” It wasn’t long before she got that call and our family purchased a dream come true. When Snug Harbor Apartments was replaced by a small condominium complex, I couldn’t wait to buy my own unit (pictured in this listing)! In the early 70s, a job transfer took my own young family on an adventure. We moved to the US Virgin islands and raised our family of five there. Despite the move, we continued the tradition of summering in Dewey so that we could spend time with grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins and continue to build on those special memories. As a teacher, I could spend significant time off-island come June and I started renting my place to help finance our vacation. Now, my children bring their families to Dewey to gather with family and have fun. We like to walk, bike, skim, surf, and enjoy breathtaking sunsets from our own private beach.
Owner purchased this Townhome in 1982
Why Owner chose Dewey Beach
Our unit at Snug Harbor has placed us in a prime location on the bay, with its own private sandy beach and 6 foot privacy wall that keeps us separated from the hustle and bustle of street traffic. Since this is a small complex that caters to families, it has always suited our needs and high expectations. The sunsets over the water are spectacular! We can walk to everything once the car is parked in its private spot. New restaurants open every season and we are never disappointed! CONDO ASSOCIATION DOES NOT PERMIT GROUP RENTALS, so you are welcome to sink in and relax without the worry of being kept up at night by noisy neighbors.
What makes this Townhome unique
Snug Harbor #5 is attractive and well-maintained, recently updated with fresh ceiling and porch paint as well as recessed lighting in the living room and kitchen. The addition of custom living room furniture makes the place sparkle. Beds are comfortable and the kitchen is well-equipped. There are two screened porches (one on each of our 2 levels, each offering entry to the unit) which we use all the time for eating, card playing and sorting shells. Once you arrive, there's really no need to get back into your car. Walking, biking, boating or taking the trolley to the boardwalk in Rehoboth seem to be the norm. An established park located next to our property is lovingly tended and offers another beautiful spot to sit and enjoy the wide variety of activities on the bay. Those with small children can walk one short block north to find a children's playground complete with picnic table and shaded seating area! The ocean beach is a quick walk away. Many great features and perks at an attractive price!
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Perfect for a family vacation.
The location right on the bay of the Snug Harbor Apartments having its own beach and dock is perfect for children to play, fish and swim. The complex is peaceful, quiet and a very safe environment for children. All the guests seemed to be families. The complex has a locked gate with a combination and the apartments are surrounded by a spacious decking. We were also a short and easy walk from the ocean side. The apartments are modest but meet all your needs. We had a three bedroom with accommodations for six. My opinion is that the apartment is a comfortable size for four adults and perhaps one or two small children. Six adults would be a little cramped.
Perfect Family Vacation Spot
We really loved this place. You have the convenience of being right in town but , at the rental, feel peaceful and relaxed with a safe , private beach and dock. The walk to the beach is a short 2 blocks and you walk right past The Little Store where I picked up my iced coffee every morning. My grandsons fished and caught crabs off the private pier every day and the adults watched the lovely sunsets with our “sundowners”. The unit was clean and well stocked with all essentials. The decor was warm and homey and exuded a sense of love and caring and attention to detail. The Grotto Restaurant is right up the street and is great for a kid-friendly, reasonably priced meal served at large tables on the deck after a long day at the beach. It was perfect for us and I hope to return some day.
Great Little Getaway Spot!
The place was in great condition and Snug Harbor is the BEST place to stay in Dewey Beach! Cindy was friendly and responsive. I would stay there again!
GREAT WEEK at DEWEY BEACH in a GREAT CONDO
My husband, two sons, (7 and 10 years old) and I really enjoyed our week stay at Snug Harbor #5. It was our first time to the Delaware coast so we weren’t sure where to stay or what to expect in general in regards to the beaches and activities. Snug Harbor Condo worked out well, it was very nice, clean, and very cozy. Outside area of Condo felt very private, clean, and quiet. Inside and out are updated and decorated with nice touches. Lots of large potted plants and nice wooden deck with security gates and a tall privacy wall surrounding all the snug harbor condos made it feel private, special, and high end. There are 9 condos that share the outside but the private beach and dock are usually empty or just a few people here and there. The sand at the private beach was well maintained and clean. Dewey Beach residential area is family friendly and this Condo is close to the ocean, you can see the entrance to ocean right from the Condo. It’s less than a 5 minute walk to the Ocean. Dewey Beach is beautiful and if you are new to the ocean like we were, I would recommend getting there early to experience the waves at Low tide . High tide waves are bigger. Start with low tide waves !! Beach can get somewhat busy but never felt too crowded and lots of life guards.
There are a ton of restaurants within walking distance of Condo and a great friendly store at the corner. Jolly Trolley is easily accessed at the end of the street, 2 minute walk to the pick up spot which is right at a bench. Trolley takes you directly to center of Rehoboth boardwalk on Rehoboth Avenue at the Pavilion. Rehoboth Avenue has a ton of unique shops from clothes, jewelry, home decor, etc. The boardwalk is more souvenir shops, food, games, and hotels. Fun Land pleasantly surprised me and was much bigger and cheaper than I expected. It had lots to do for all ages. Games and rides were only 1 or 2 dollars. We went on a Friday to Fun land during the day and at night and not long waits at all. The Green Turtle Restaurant is all on an upper level and had good food and an amazing view of the Boardwalk and Beach! It’s right above Thrashers fries which are also a must. Dos Locos was a great Mexican place. The Ice Cream shop had great ice cream! Jungle Jim’s water park is a short drive away and was a fun day. I would definitely return to the area. The Condo and area were both wonderful. I only explored Dewey and Rehoboth so even more to do than I had time for.
What a great family vacation location!! The private beach and access to bay makes this place! Central location to all “eats and treats.” Snug Harbor #5 is comfort, cozy and clean. Beds were comfortable and AC units worked well. Just an FYI - 1 TV with only 10 basic channels- not the place to be a couch potato! We were active morning to night, so didn’t mind it. Already thinking about returning next year!
Thanks so much for your kind words. I love it when guests comment on being comfortable and. finding things attractive and clean. We really try our best to have everything perfect! Looking forward to seeing you next year!
Perfect beach location
Great location!!! Easy walk to beach, stores, and restaurants. Very clean! A little small for the 5 of us but I would definitely stay again!
So glad you had a good time! Our location is perfect; you can hit the beach and all the fun locales with little effort. Not only do I appreciate your review, but your note telling me you enjoyed yourselves was much appreciated as well! Please do visit again; we would love to have you!
Dewey Beach offers many activities to its guests. You can find most watersports, delicious places to eat and attractive bars with entertainment. For those with small children, there are several spots that carry dairy-fresh ice cream to eat on the way to our own playground located just down the street from Snug Harbor. Ours is a walkiing destination; no need to get back in your car. Bikes are available to rent nearby too.
