About the property

House , 4-5 Bedrooms, 4-5 full baths, outdoor shower, 1/2 bath

There is nothing like this anywhere in the area! What was once an estate until 1984, has been turned into an exclusive, private community for 21 families. This rental recently underwent a beautiful, full-house renovation - completed May 2014. It is one of the only 2 Oceanfront rental properties in Rehoboth/Dewey to accommodate 10 people, and have breathtaking views of the ocean, while overlooking 2 large pools.

The first level of this 3-story single family home has 4 bedrooms all with private bathrooms (king bed , queen bed, 2 rooms with a queen/full bed and bunk beds), along with a laundry room, large covered patio and outside shower. The main (middle) floor is a beautiful, wide-open floor plan that spaciously accommodates a large kitchen/dining area, separate wet bar area, family room w/flat screen TV and in/outdoor stereo system, card table nook, and large deck. The third floor is a fully-dedicated, private master suite with an office area, second laundry/dressing area, and large bathroom. This area is currently limited to private use, and may be rented for an additional fee at the owner's discretion.

The community has a casual resort/country-club feel, due to the abundance of amenities and conveniences. Aside from the 2 large heated pools, our guests have full access to the tennis court, Manor House game room/main level/ocean deck (right next door!), complementary breakfast on weekends and holidays, complementary beach chairs and umbrellas (that are even set up for you), and 2 off-street parking spaces.

The location is probably the best around as well. Conveniently situated between Rehoboth and Dewey Beaches, you will be walking distance from either town, or you can enjoy the 'Jolly Trolly' shuttle that stops right at the end of our block. Both towns have amazing character and plenty of dining, shopping, entertainment, and boardwalk fun. It is also a quiet residential street, so you will be distant enough for tranquility.

In season (Memorial-Labor Day) available for weekly rentals only (Friday-Friday). 3 night minimum in off-season. Tenant provides linens, towels, soap and paper products, but we have a wonderful concierge team you can contract with to handle this for you.

About Kim

We have been enjoying this house and location thoroughly for 14 years, building wonderful memories with our friends and family. It is a very special place.

We just completed a full-house renovation in May 2014. Everything is brand new as if we started from scratch- all new electrical, fixtures, plumbing, structure, appliances, and most of the furniture.

This is an amazing property and we are willing to share it with families who will respect and care for it as well.

Kim purchased this house in 2005

Why Kim chose Rehoboth by the Sea

We have been Rehoboth beach-goers since our youth and this is by far the best location and best kept secret with all that is included in the community. We park our car the day we arrive and rarely need to take it out again until it is time to leave. There is so much to do and enjoy here!

What makes this house unique

The benefits listed in the description speak for itself. You could never leave 'the compound' and feel like you had an active, yet relaxing, fulfilling vacation.

  • 5 of 5

My family and friends just returned from one of the most enjoyable beach vacations and the house was a major contributor to that joy. We were eight (my daughter, her significant other, my grandson and his girlfriend, my twin granddaughters and one of their girl friends. The kids were all teenagers. The house is perfect for such a large and unfamiliar group. The four bedrooms all have their own bath so privacy is protected. Each bath room is spotless and cleaner than some five star hotels we have stayed in. Each bath has beautiful one inch glass block accents.

The kitchen is a page out of House Beautiful with a huge gorgeous blue granite island and plenty of space for multiple people in the kitchen. There are two sets of dishes and two sets of silverware.

The living room had very comfortable seating which you don't always find in a rental but the best part is the partially covered deck looking directly out to the beach and ocean. There was a wicker chair with fluffy cushions that could be moved into a reclining position like a barcolounger. I spent many afternoon checking

out the underside of my eye lids there.

The large washer can accomodate the days supply of beach towels in one load and its located right inside the door as you come in on the lower level.

We brought bikes and the younger teens biked to town for my morning newspaper and had a ball shopping in

Rehoboth. We are beach people and Rehoboth is my favorite beach town of all. It truly is a community and the

restaurants get better and better.

This house with this town make for a perfect vacation for all.

P>S> We utilized the concierge by the sea and had groceries delivered before we arrived. Although pricey, it was

wonderful to not have to leave as soon as we arrived in order to go grocery shopping.

Paradise Regained

  • 5 of 5

We were blessed to be able to rent this terrific property for the second year in a row (and hope it will continue to be our family's tradition for many years to come). Coming back, it was so wonderful to see that the owner's interest has not flagged one iota in maintaining a comfortable and pristinely clean environment for all their visitors. Nor have they stopped making their residence a perfect home away from home. For example, a new banquette completed the game table area. We are a multi-generational family and each of us found magnificent ways to pass our time here: for the kids, it was beach in the morning, pool in the afternoon and boardwalk at night. I preferred to sit on the porch overlooking the ocean and just relax. Throughout the rental process, Kim was always there to answer questions and make sure we were doing well. That kind of personal assistance is impressive and most welcome. This is -- and always will be -- a primo experience in a primo location.

Great location and ammenities

  • 5 of 5

Great central location and just far enough away from the busy strip area. House is very modern, clean and up to date. The pool was a great addition to our stay. The covered patio was great for a couple days of rain as well as a break from the midday sun.

Amazing house, location

  • 5 of 5

If you want luxurious beach vacation, right on the beach with a pool, this is the place. About a mile to the Rehoboth boardwalk, it's located right between Dewey and Rehoboth. Completely renovated interior with spectacular views of the ocean. The pool was heated and our kids spent hours in it. We are looking forward to coming back next year!

Modern home, excellent location/view and great amenities

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week on the ocean in this luxurious home. Owner Kim was easy to work with and the home was everything promised - recently renovated with vacationers in mind, part of an upscale community with pool and tennis. The home is on the water with great ocean views and easy beach access. Great for kids, adults and friends.
