SeaGarden Cottage is a two-story home just over a block from the beach, nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and Rehoboth Bay in a classic seaside town. It's the quintessential beach bungalow, built in the 1930's but more recently expanded and remodeled with 3 bedrooms (sleeping 8) and 2 baths. Beautifully appointed and well maintained, it combines traditional beach cottage charm with modern comforts and amenities (including high-speed wireless Internet). It's our treasured escape from the hectic world and we're pleased to share it with you.
Pull into the semi-circular driveway with room for 3 cars (+one parking pass provided for on-street parking). Enter through the bright front porch with picnic table and butterfly chairs into the main living space centered around a large sofa, 44' flat-panel TV w/Blu-Ray player and stereo system, stone fireplace and wood-beam walls, opening into a sun-filled dining area and gleaming galley kitchen with complete cookware, utensils and dishes. To the right is one bedroom with built-in dresser, two closets, a chest of drawers and full-size bed, adjoining a full bath with tiled walk-in shower, and a knotty pine paneled den with comfortable sofabed, a closet, 32' flat-panel TV w/VCR (and many tapes, mostly for kids).
Upstairs is the large master bath with tub, laundry room with stacking washer/dryer and closet space, master bedroom with an extremely comfortable queen-size bed and chest of drawers, and third bedroom with antique twin beds and a crib, a chest of drawers and a large closet.
Our vacation home by the sea is perfect for families (crib and highchair provided) or couples seeking a cozy retreat just a short stroll from the ocean and local restaurants. Walk out the front door and you can see the dunes and in a couple minutes you've got your toes in the ocean! After a day at the beach rinse off in the private outdoor shower (hot & cold water), cook out on the fenced rear deck and relax on the enclosed porch. On cool evenings curl up by the glowing gas fireplace. Or hop on your bike for the short ride up Bayard Ave. along Silver Lake to downtown Rehoboth, or take the stunningly beautiful 8-mile cruise south through Delaware Seashore State Park to Indian River Inlet with its immense undeveloped beach and bathhouse w/concessions (plus great striped bass and flounder fishing!).
True to the name SeaGarden Cottage, in season (~June-Sept.) there is full vegetable garden for you to pick and enjoy, along with various herbs and flowers as well.
As usual with beach houses, you'll need to supply your own bed linens and towels (except for crib sheets/blanket).
Our rental process is easy since can 'Book It' instantly and we'll respond within 24 hours. First half (50%) of rent is due 8 weeks before check-in or upon reserving if you choose, and the balance 4 weeks later. After receipt of the final rent payment we'll provide access details and additional info to help make your stay enjoyable and relaxing.
In season (June-Sept.) we typically rent by the week, but will sometimes consider a 4-6 day mid-week rental when we can use the weekend ourselves. Off-season (Oct.-May) has a 3-day minimum; please contact us via email for off-season rates and availability. SeaGarden Cottage is usually winterized and unavailable for rental from November through May.
