About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms , 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-6)-Ocean Blk-Walk to Everything!

Come stay at The Whaling Cottage. Yes, this was once located on the Beach in Rehoboth Beach, only to be rolled up with mules, and logs, to its home now! Visit this seaside retreat and relax. Enjoy the pics from the past that hang in the living room. The Whaling Cottage has been updated over the years, to a newer kitchen, bath, electric, etc. Freshly painted, and newly carpeted for 2015! We take pride in our home, and it's cleanliness. It is located on a wide, quiet street. Close to everything. You can walk HALF BLOCK to the boardwalk, and beach. (Actually we are located 5 buildings from the ocean, which is half block ) If it gets too hot, leave your chair, go back to the house, relax, and cool off, have lunch, or whatever! Maybe a beer and lunch on the deck!

This home is maintained, and cleaned, by the owners every week! If there is a problem, no problem. You never have to worry about being inconvenienced. We truly take care for our guests. Our cell number is given to every guests for emergencies or any other problem.

We have very comfortable furniture in the living room we have just purchased, in Oct. 2012 for 2013 season, ( a new queen size sleeper sofa with a memory mattress.) We have also purchased two new leather chairs in living room that swivel. For 2015 we have quality, new Serta mattresses -queen in the master, and a new double in the second bdrm. Our spreads are quality, and so are our pillows. The kitchen is very well stocked with everything you will need. Non Stick fry pans, steamer, roasting pan, cookie sheets, cupcake pans, can opener, blender, barbecue tools, etc, etc.

Sit out on the large/new deck at night and relax looking at the ocean, the beautiful view of the stars, moon, or sunset. If you do not like the sand, you can sunbathe on the deck! Two loungers are there for your use.

You can walk to all the shops, restaurants/bars, day spas, convenience stores, etc. No need to ever move your car once you have grocery shopped.

There is a bike rack located in the back yard, if you would like to bike ride to everything. Rehoboth now has a bike path from Rehoboth, to the town of Lewes. It is great for the children because there are no cars allowed. You can take the path from our seaside retreat by going from Gordons Pond, State Park. It is North of us (approx., 1/2 mile), all the way to the quaint town of Lewes w/o any traffic. A few steps to the boardwalk to enjoy, the rides, arcades, minature golf, or just eat Grotto pizza, or Thrashers Fries!! There are so many exciting things to do!!

No matter what you plan on doing, you will love Rehoboth Beach.

Book now and avoid all the extra Realtor Fees!!!!!

Note: Sand toys for your use by outside shower along with boogie boards and a umbrella. Books, games, and kites in laundry room for everyone's use.

About The Owner

We are local owners, so we are close for any problems or questions. We love to travel. We have two grown girls. No grandchildren yet, just grand dogs!! We also have a Westie, which is like our third child. We are dog lovers!!

The Owner purchased this condo in 1999

Why The Owner chose Rehoboth Beach

My husband and I chose Rehoboth Beach, DE because it had the feel of a small town with values.

You can also have guests stay and not have to worry about being close to a large highway. The town is small and quaint. The people are nice. The town has everything you would need if you do not want to move the car.

What makes this condo unique

When staying here you will experience the enjoyment of listening to the sea gulls, walking the beach/boardwalk, or taking the little ones to the rides. You can stroll down to the beach, leave your chairs and blanket -go back- eat lunch, put the children down for a nap, and go back later. At night the best thing is to sit on the deck and gaze at the ocean. The most unique benefit of our beach home is how close we are to the beach/boardwalk, and rides. We are just far enough from the small busy town (four blks to ctr. of town) so we are not bothered by the noise, BUT close enough to walk there, if you wish to go enjoy all the benefits of the small town. It is truly a great beach location and beach home. I am so happy we chose our location.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Cynthia, We had a great week. We love the house. Just like home. Every little item and detail is provided You really have a great place, and we hope we can come back next year. Thank you for the goodies. I also want to mention that I think a breaker may not be working as the plug by the sink and coffee pot does not work. Again, thank you and enjoy the rest of the summer.

Wonderful Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has visited Rehoboth Beach dozens of times in the past, but this was our first time staying at the Whaling Cottage. The whole family (2 adults, 2 teenagers) had a really enjoyable week. We found the unit to be very clean & tidy and contained every appliance and kitchen item that we could possibly need. The unit is only 1/2 block from the beach and only a few streets away from all of the shops & restaurants. We parked our car and walked everywhere! After a long day at the beach, our family would wander around town and then have a nice dinner at one of the many local restaurants. In the evenings, my husband and I really enjoyed relaxing on the deck while our kids entertained themselves at Funland on the boardwalk. Cynthia & Don (and their daughters) were gracious hosts, and we enjoyed meeting all of them. It is clear that the owners take great pride in their properties. Cynthia even dropped off a bottle of wine for my husband & I to enjoy on the deck (so thoughtful!!). We absolutely intend to book this vacation property again. Thanks Cynthia & Don!

Our favorite place to stay in Rehoboth!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have rented the upstairs deck unit for a few years now, and we absolutely love it! The house is always immaculate when we arrive, and everything you could possibly need is included. The house is a few minutes walk from the start of the boardwalk which is perfect-close by but still quiet with a beautiful view of the ocean! We look forward to continuing our family tradition next year!

Beautiful Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

The house is delightful! Very warm, comfortable and clean. Tastefully decorated and had everything you needed. It was just like being home. Ideal location, only 1/2 block from the beach and boardwalk. We stayed in "B" and really enjoyed the deck. We have been vacationing in Rehoboth Beach for years and this was our first house rental and we hope to be able to come back next year. Cynthia and Don were great hosts and we loved renting from them.

Lovely Rehoboth Beach Gem!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a perfect Memorial Day weekend at the Whalng Cottage. The B unit was beautifully decorated and well stocked with everything you need for a beach vacation. Excellent location so close to the beach, Boardwalk, and downtown restaurants/nightlife.

Cynthia was friendly, helpful and easy to work with!

Wonderful Beach Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in the second floor front apartment twice and both times have been extremely pleased. The place is immaculately clean and the kitchen thoroughly stocked with every pan, gadget, plate or glass needed. Beds are super comfy. Cottage located only a half block from the beach and on one of the quieter streets a few blocks from the heart of Rehoboth. The owner is so sweet! She bends over backwards to make sure everything is just right. I'd recommend this place to anyone looking for a clean, quiet, lovely little place to stay near the beach.

Owner's Response: Dear Dani-Thank you very much for taking time to post a review. I am glad you stated that, yes, we are in the quieter end of Rehoboth Beach, BUT, still close enough to walk to all! We hope you plan on staying with us in the future, and loved having you. Take Care. Cynthia

Sister time at the beach

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the Whaling Cottage for the weekend and what a great place. It is a nice as the photos portray, Neat, clean and well appointed. It is located close to the beach, boardwalk and a short walk to Rehoboth Avenue. The owner was VERY accommodating and spoke to me personally throughout my rental process. We plan to return to Rehoboth and will certainly look to stay at the cottage again. Would highly recommend this rental property -Thank you Cynthia, look forward to our return. Ann and Peg
