About Allan Freedman
We are third generation homeowners who live and work in the greater Washington DC area. We have two kids who, like their mother before them, have grown up going to this beach house.
Allan Freedman purchased this House in 1960
Why Allan Freedman chose Ann Acres
Holly Bush Cottage was built in 1960 by Edward and Minna Russell. Edward and Minna moved from the England after WWII with their daughter Patricia. Edward worked in DC and traveled every weekend to join Minna at this tranquil oasis. The house passed on to Patricia in 1992 and to her daughter Heather in 2012. Now Heather, her husband Allan and their two kids are the custodians of Edward and Minna's home. In 2015 the house was picked up and moved ten feet to the right of the property. This freed up a lot which is now occupied by a new home. As part of the move there were significant upgrades including two new bathrooms, a new large screened in porch and deck on back (with a spacious outdoor shower).
What makes this House unique
It's a bargain for Rehoboth, named one of the best beach towns in the United States by Travel and Leisure magazine in 2015. The house sleeps ten comfortably in four bedrooms. Two queen bedrooms, a two twin bedroom and a four twin extended upstairs. There are two full bathrooms, one per floor, that were replaced in 2015 as part of a major remodel inside and out. There is lots of parking in front and a wonderful secluded screened-in porch in the back that is magical in the evenings. (and 80+ Mbps download speed WiFi!)

Sports & Adventure Activities
Our family had such a great vacation week at Holly Bush Cottage! The cottage is charming and comfortable and had everything we needed to relax and just have fun. It's an easy walk to the beach, to the restaurants and stores in Dewey, and it's even easy to walk down to Rehobeth. We spent a lot of time on the back porch! There was plenty of room for everyone (7 of us) to spread out, the bathrooms are nicely renovated, and the kitchen had everything we needed and more! A big thank you to Allan for being so helpful and accommodating. We love your place and can definitely see why your family loves it so much. We would definitely rent Holly Bush again if we get the chance. It's a wonderful place! Thanks again.
Easy and fun
Had a great time at Holy Bush Cottage. Brought a small group of friends in from DC, great to have a comfortable spot to relax in between beach and going into town. Back porch became the favorite hang-out spot. Home was very clean and had everything we needed for our stay. Plenty of parking and stress-free check-in/check-out process.
Would recommend for both price and location.
We had a large group in Dewey for the weekend. We had plenty of room and this is a great location. Close enough to walk to the action and far enough removed to enjoy a quiet evening on the back porch. Allan was very helpful and responsive to questions.
A wonderful week!
A wonderful, comfortable property! Spacious bedrooms, appealing bathrooms, a completely stocked kitchen, and a lovely screened back porch. Location perfect for the beach and numerous attractions. A very positive experience with Allen Freedman, the property owner. Looking forward to visiting again!
