About the property

Renovated 3 bedroom, 2 bath Townhome on the Bay, enjoy our private beach!

Snug Harbor is a well-located beach retreat and favorite destination for new and returning guests. Renovated this season with fresh paint, recessed lighting and custom living room furniture, this vacation rental offers a well-appointed, comfortable space with plenty of style,. There are 2 screened porches, a private sandy beach for lounging and a 6 foot privacy wall separating you from the hustle and bustle of the summer crowd! Best of all, attractive pricing gives families the option of an affordable vacation rental that also offers the perks of more expensive ones. You can expect a quick response to inquiries from families; however, the condo association doesn't permit group rentals. Please call to confirm Memorial Day and Labor Day Rates (currently each 3 day rental is $1595.00 plus a refundable damage deposit of 400.00).

Arrive, park, and prepare to relax....

Shop for groceries on your way in and navigate the area by foot, bike, boat or trolley for the rest of your stay. Along with spectacular views, Snug Harbor offers comfortable accomodations in the heart of Dewey Beach. Slip on your flip flops, grab morning coffee and head out to our private beach to enjoy the sights and sounds drifting across the water. Repeat the trip in the evening and watch spectacular sunsets as you sip evening cocktails. Relax on our screened porches, ideal for card playing or sorting shells!

Our little town, a picturesque strip nestled between the mighty Atlantic and tranquil Rehoboth Bay, is famous for its enticing mix of shops, restaurants and atmospheric nightlife. The Little Store, steps from our door, is a friendly, well-stocked landmark along the short walk to the dunes and pounding surf. As you stroll along the ocean's shoreline, be sure to check out the ad planes that fly overhead. They'll be trailing banners listing dinner and drink specials.

Most of our guests are repeat customers who plan to spend at least one night at the Rehoboth Beach boardwalk. If you haven't used the Jolley Trolley to get there, you've missed a treat. It's fun, affordable, and it picks up/drops off at the end of the street. Don't forget to sample some world-famous Dolle's popcorn or salt water taffy on your adventure across town!

We're located on Rehoboth Bay's sandy shore (Read Avenue); turn right at Grotto Pizza and follow the road down to the water. Snug Harbor is on the left. Hope to see you soon!

About The Owner

I was born in Delaware, but have lived in the Caribbean for 30 years where I teach school during the week and enjoy going to the beach or scuba diving on the weekends. My large family is made up of fellow educators, builders, and artists who value comfort and beauty and the chance to enjoy as much time together as possible. By necessity (since we're scattered all over the place!), we're travelers who have had many adventures in a variety of lovely places. Our traditional trek to Dewey each summer is a cherished ritual that we look forward to all year. We never tire of being out on the sand or on the dock enjoying beautiful sunsets. We would rather walk or ride bikes than drive. Grabbing skim boards or kites and heading up to the ocean in the early evening is totally us!

The Owner purchased this townhome in 1982

Why The Owner chose Delaware

Our family has always appreciated the unique nature of Dewey Beach. It offers something for everyone. 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. We know all of the owners and when units are rented, we usually meet interesting people who appear to be enjoying their vacations in much the same way as we're enjoying ours. The sunsets over the water are spectacular! We can walk to everything. Several nice restaurants opened last season and we frequent one a few blocks down that has an outdoor bar and tables on the sand. It's fun to go there for drinks and snacks while the children play!

What makes this townhome unique

Snug Harbor is attractive and comfortable, renovated this season with fresh paint, recessed lighting and custom living room furniture. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen is well-equipped. There are two screened porches (one on each of our 2 levels) 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. A newly established park located next to our property is lovingly maintained 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! Many great features and perks at an affordable price.

Wonderful stay. Beautiful sunsets over the bay!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the location with the short walk to the beach, walking to the local restaurants, and taking the Jolley trolley to Rehoboth! Also very impressed with how clean and well kept the unit was. It is a little small, but worked out well for our family of 5!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the glowing review! I let my cleaner know about your comment; she tries very hard to be sure everything is spic and span for my guests, so she really appreciated what you had to say about finding things so nice and clean. Please pencil in Snug Harbor #5 for another visit next season. I would love to have you!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

There are so many good things to say about this house and the location. The view of the bay from the deck, living room and deck off the master bedroom were amazing. We were able to walk to breakfast, dinner and most importantly the beach! The small beach on the property was great for the afternoons with two small children, we were able to fly kites off the dock. There is also a park just one street over!

Cindy is wonderful! There was a small issue with the dishwasher and she had someone out that day to have the issue looked at and fixed. She was also so kind and wonderful to talk with when planning our trip.

If traveling with small children, there is a spiral staircase which proved a little intersting for the first two days amd the bathtub did not have a way to plug it. Both were very minor and we were able to pull parenting tricks out of our sleeves to make it work.

I don't think you can go wrong with a stay in this wonderful condo.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review Katelyn. I think our lively communication made this rental fun for both of us! Thanks to your call, I was able to have those little tweaks made at the house so that not only is my place cute and comfortable, but everything works well for my guests. Please come back again next summer; I was so thrilled with my renovations that I added a new living room set to the mix.Love to have you enjoy it on your next visit!

Cozy hideaway with a private pier.

  • 4 of 5

This home is great for families with young kids. The private beach and pier are a great place to watch horseshoe crabs and dig in the sand without needing to get into a car.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your nice review. Snug Harbor does offer lots for families to do. Just watching children explore the beach and play in the shallow water is relaxing, no need to make elaborate plans in order to enjoy your vacation! Please come again!

Our family found this property to be everything we were looking for in a vacation spot. Clean, comfortable, affordable while offering a variety of beauty and activity, Snug Harbor is very special. While parents love the excitement of Dewey Beach, we wanted to be sure there was plenty to offer our young kids. Our son and daughter found lots to do on the private bay beach as well as on the ocean front. Casual dining for the whole family abounds with many choices for ice cream afterwards. When we wanted to go to the boardwalk in Rehoboth, it was a short trolley ride away. We’ll be returning this summer!

quiet retreat at Dewey

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a quiet place to relax and a safe haven in coastal Delaware, Snug Harbor is it. Nestled on Rehoboth Bay, but a short 2 blocks walk to the Ocean, Snug Harbor is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the busier beach locales. The unit, while small, does provide a great location for walking into Rehoboth, taking in the great eats in Dewey, provides great access to Route 1 for shopping, and most importantly, you can watch the sun rise over the ocean and at night, watch the sun set on the bay. The spiral staircase to the upstairs is a bit narrow, but we managed to get our luggage up. There are 2 bedrooms upstairs and 1 down on the main level. Most importantly, the area is quiet from 11 pm to 8 am, so sleeping was no problem. We cooked meals in for part of the time since there were adequate kitchen appliances to create tasty meals. The screened porch was a great place to take in the bay and sit and have a leisurely meal or play a board game. Parking was assigned, so there was never a problem finding a spot. The pier is a few steps away and readily accessible. Owner was responsible and easy to deal with. All in all, a very relaxing 5 days.

Perfect Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

This vacation spot exceeded our expectations. We were able to settle in right away. The location is perfect and exactly what we were looking for. The townhouse was very clean and comfortable. We are an active family, so we appreciated getting up early and heading up to the ocean beach at sunrise to skimboard and then head back to the property to crab and enjoy the sunset. Also, the short walk to many restaurants was extremely appealing as well as a convenient store at the end of the block. This is a quiet street, yet located in the perfect spot for transportation to nearby towns.

My family has traveled to many different locations and we all agree that our experience at Snug Harbor was one that we will always remember.
