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----

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.

My 3 adult daughters and I rented Whaling cottage C May 29-June 3. It was clean, well equipped and the perfect location. Just steps to the beach and boardwalk. Hope we can come next summer! Peggy A.

Very clean and close to everything

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this property was excellent:

the way Cynthia and Donnie greeted us, clean and convenient rooms, availability of all needed amenities, and - of course - just steps to the ocean and the city center.

We are very thankful for this wonderful opportunity to the owners and hope to come again in the future.

Best regards.

Elena and Alex

another lovely week at The Whaling Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I gave this beach rental 5 stars when our family of 4 stayed there in 2014. We would have returned in 2015 but a family wedding had us traveling elsewhere. Came back with another couple in summer 2016 and if anything, it's even better. Don and Cynthia are so easy to work with and they are always looking for ways to improve the renter's experience. We love using the CLEAN charcoal grill with the appropriate tools. Even nicer is the lush garden setting where we had our cocktails each evening. The immaculately maintained outdoor shower eases the load of 4 ppl on the single bathroom. We had one additional guest for a night, who used the pull out sofa, which has a super comfortable mattress. Fresh flowers and homemade biscotti made us feel so welcome. And especially appreciated is the prompt return of the security deposit without having to ask for it!! We hope to be back again next summer!!

Perfect !!!!

  • 5 of 5

I'm a "lets try a different place" person when I go on vacation----until I stayed @ this rental of Cynthia's. My girlfriends and I stayed here 3 years ago and have booked it the same time every year since then. It's perfectly clean, the kitchen is A+ with appliances and supplies, the bathroom the same. Comfortable beds are a big plus.Cynthia has thought of everything needed for a great stay. We park the car when we arrive and don't move it until we leave because the beach and restaurants and shopping and bus transportation are all just a short walk away!! It's also a lovely place to just sit in the yard or porch and relax. Best beach house I've ever stayed.

Clean and comfy!

  • 5 of 5

All the reviews for this place are true! My two friends and I could not have been happier at this cottage; it was just what we needed and was perfectly clean! Cynthia does a great job taking care of this place. The kitchen appliances are basically brand new and all in amazing condition, the bathroom is really nice, and the mattresses are extremely comfortable. The outside shower and the amazing location put it over the top. It was beyond wonderful to just relax, walk less than a block to the beach and enjoy Rehoboth without having to think about dealing with any annoyances of a random rental -- it just felt like home. Thank you so much, Cynthia!! We will be back :)
