About Phyllis Martin

I've been coming to Dewey beach for over 30 years and love it! After sharing a house with a great group of friends for many years, I purchased my own a few years ago. There is always so much gong on in Dewey and Rehoboth, both in the summer and in the off season when the area hosts numerous festivals such as the Jazz Festival, the Sea Witch Festival,the Film Festival, and the Greyhounds Reach the Beach Weekend to name just a few. The beach is fabulous (and welcomes pets before 9 AM and after 5 PM), casual spots such as the Starboard, Ed's chicken, numerous other Dewey attractions abound, and fine dining can be found at countless Rehoboth locations. It's great for groups of friends getting together and for families that want to be near the beach, shops, and restaurants yet far enough away from the nightlife for quiet relaxation. Dewey truly is :the best of both worlds'.

Phyllis Martin purchased this house in 2007

Why Phyllis Martin chose Rehoboth by the Sea

The house is in the heart of everything! It's a short walk to a great beach where we can take our dogs in the mornings and evenings, walk to Ed's chicken (a must for visitors to Dewey), the Starboard, shops, and other restaurants. The nearby Jolly Trolley is a great way to enjoy Rehoboth without the hassle of driving and parking. It's also a pleasant, though longer, walk, bike, or jog into Rehoboth. We also liked the yard and the set back location near the end of the block -- quieter, yet near everything.

What makes this house unique

Quiet location, large private yard, short walk to beach and key locations such as the Starboard, Ed's Chicken & Crabs, Jolley Trolley to Rehoboth. Separate suite with den/bedroom/bathroom and loft make it perfect for a group, 2 families to share, or a family with parents or in-laws wanting a bit of privacy.

Perfect Memorial Day Beach Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything we could have asked for and was a perfect fit for 8 guys. The house was spacious and suited our needs very well, and the backyard patio area was perfect for grilling up some food and getting your second wind. In terms of location, hard to beat this spot. 2 blocks from Starboards and 5 blocks from North Beach. The owner, Phyllis, was extremely helping setting everything up and was very responsive with any questions or concerns. Overall, great experience and we will definitely be back!

Great Location, Nice Town, Ho Hum House

  • 3 of 5

This rental sleeps many people and is available on a nightly basis, rare for the Jersey/Delaware shore. Phyllis was very easy to communicate with and gave clear directions. The description is basically accurate.

The house has no large dining space, so it is not well suited to an extended family. It has a 1970s vibe. If you are looking for updated elegance, this is not the place for you. It has no views of anything other than driveway. Plus, be aware you need to bring your own sheets and towels. Apparently this is the norm at the Shore, but for anyone coming from elsewhere, it will be a rude surprise.

The property was run down and dirty.

  • 2 of 5

The overall house was run down. I had to reclean the property when I got there. The box springs were stained and matressess very old.The upstairs area was better. The location was close to beach but had to cross very busy 4 laned road to get there.Although I was not very happy with the property, the owner responded to my concerns quickly and tried to remedy them.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry that you were unhappy with your stay. We try very hard to meet the needs of our guests and apologize for any inconvenience and any cleaning issues. Most of our guests have found the property more than satisfactory and we have had several return clients. When you called regarding a couple of items the cleaners had overlooked, we offered to send them back in, and they were ready to return immediately given your OK. We appreciate your willingness to deal with the issues yourself rather than have them return, but they would have gladly come back. We have discussed the items you mentioned with them and they have assured us that they will not be overlooked again. Although Ocean Highway must be crossed to get to the beach, the crossing is at a controlled intersection and the Dewey police do an excellent job in ensuring that speed limits are observed and in enforcing traffic rules to make the crossing safe.

Fit our needs and budget!

Great choice!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my friends group stayed for This last labor day weekend. I spend months looking for the best option and we all have zero regrets on the decision. The house is great, comfortable and very spacious. We're all outgoing people and everything from the bars to the restaurants was really close. The backyard space is great and no doubt is was the best parking considering we were in 10 ppl. A plus is how Phyllis is such a delight to deal with. EXTRA RECOMMEND and can't wait for next summer!
