Probably One of the Few Cottages Left in the Area

  • 5 of 5

In the land of Dewey Beach there are few small cozy single homes left. This is one of them. It's a bit of a throwback in terms of architecture but it fits right in with "shore" decor. The owner is very responsive not that we had issues. I'm speaking from a "pre-rental" and post contract period. If I had questions they were answered via email or voice within 18 hours. Given its location to the beach, it's a good buy (rent). You won't find anything better price wise.

GREAT cottage

  • 5 of 5

Just steps from the beach and from the Rusty Rudder - best of both worlds. Comfy beds, remarkably huge and nice TV, great open living room. Probably the best place we have stayed in so far in terms of coziness and closeness to everything. Loved it and will be back for sure.

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed the week of July 4th, 2011. Went with a bunch of friends (20 somethings.) Steps from the beach and short distance to the heart of Dewey! Really enjoyed the screened in porch, outside shower and huge TV. I don't think there was a grain of sand found upon arrival. House was clean and obviously cared for through the years. Owner is extremely helpful and genuine...looking forward to a return trip to Dewey!

Great Beach week!

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at the cottage with my husband, daughter, son-in-law, granddaughter and adopted grandaughter (granddaughter's bff) We had a wonderful time, the beds were very comfortable, the cottage had all the extras we needed..the beach was close, the Rudder across the street, we will book a return engagement in the future if possible.

About The Owner

We consider ourselves local residents since we have been here every summer of our lives. We love the beach, the bay for sailing, the many restaurants, the beach, the biking, the beach, the golfing, the get the idea.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1986

Why The Owner chose Dewey Beach

We have been summering here forever. For us, Dewey is a way of life. We get homesick if we have not walked barefoot on this wonderful beach every month. We had to buy so that we could always come back.

What makes this cottage unique

We are unique because we are one of the original cottages in Dewey Beach. It has been kept up impeccably. We pay attention to the details and everyone who has stayed there cannot believe how clean it is. This is a separate house offering privacy unlike most condos and townhouses. There is parking for four cars. The house is a short distance to the beach meaning you can leave your beach gear on the beach and go back to the house for lunch or refreshments, not to mention a bathroom break. This is truly convenient if you have children.
