About The Owner

My husband and I are Landlords that are close to our rental for any problems there may be. We love taking care of our so called, 'doll houses,' and very much enjoy meeting our guests while doing our lawn, or watering the plants. We have two grown beautiful daughters, and thank God for our blessings. We take pride in everything we do at our property. We hope you enjoy them--and if there is a problem we hope you do not hesitate to let us know. We work very hard from Spring to late Fall.Sometimes thru the winter. Some winters we try to live life a little by traveling. Usually cruising--it is our favorite new thing!!

The Owner purchased this condo in 1999

Why The Owner chose Rehoboth Beach

We choose Rehoboth Beach because of it's small town qualities. There were no high rise buildings or major highways to worry about children being hurt while riding their bikes or walking. It is a place where you can leave your beach spot, go back to the house or to eat on the boardwalk and not have to worry about people taking your things.

What makes this condo unique

Our vacation home is the -past Rehoboth--it is a beach cottage from the late 1940's, but there is a brand new kitchen being installed for 2017.The living room will also have new furniture for 2017. New carpet throughout the cottage also.The bath room was refinished a few years ago.. We also have just built a new screened in/windows porch are with two ceiling fans. We have clean and comfortable furniture and bedding. Our NEW screened in porch is the best for the early morning coffee and paper, or late night drink. It is also a great place to serve dinner. Our canvas enclosed/private outside shower is the BEST--you must try an outside shower once in your life! It has hot and cold water. There is a free parking space in our backyard for you automobile. The best thing is you are SO CLOSE to the BEACH and the BOARDWALK--and only four blocks to the CENTER of town--COME join us---you won't be disappointed----

Wonderful, convenient, and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This was a very well-equipped house, just one minute from the boardwalk. The beds, including the sofa bed, were extremely comfortable. The outdoor shower with hot water was luxurious. We appreciated all the vacation extras provided. Thank you Cynthia for making our stay so easy and enjoyable!

Perfect beach cottage for our family of 4!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at the Whaling Cottage (C)! My husband and I and our 2 boys (ages 6 and 4) had plenty of room and all the amenities we needed! Cynthia maintains a beautiful property and we enjoyed all that it had to offer... from the laundry room filled with games and puzzles, to the sand toys and boogie boards, and the clothes line in the back to hang wet towels from the beach. The updated appliances in the kitchen were a plus, too! The cottage was the perfect location from the boardwalk, beach and town... and parking in the back of the property was convenient, too! The beds were cozy and there was planting of seating in the living room and dining area. Our favorite was the screened in porch area which provided a gorgeous breeze with all the windows open.

Thank you, Cynthia for a wonderful week in your beautiful property!

Comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at The Whaling Cottage. The accommodations were very clean and the unit was attractively furnished. The kitchen was well equipped and we appreciated the updated appliances. The property is lovingly landscaped. It was great to have a backyard clothesline for beach towels and swimsuits. Off-street parking was also a bonus. We were a bit worried about 4 adults sharing 1 bath, but we made it work. The location of the house is ideal. A short walk to the beach and in the evening we were close to the boardwalk action. The house is on a quiet street and we slept very soundly in the comfortable beds. (Extra pillows were greatly appreciated, too!!) All in all, outstanding accommodations at our favorite place for sun, sand and surf!!

Great place for family vacation....

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! We traveled with 2 kids (7 years and 4 months). The condo was perfectly prepared and welcoming, clean, had everything we needed. We loved being so close to the beach, restaurants, shops and all the fun stuff around the board walk. We definitely want to go back. Thank you, Cynthia.
