Located in the heart of this popular resort, this vacation home offers comfort and accessibility to all major attractions. The property has been lovingly maintained by the owner who spent summers here with her brothers and sisters. First floor playroom offers a new queen sleeper sofa with extra-comfortable mattress and private bath.
Guests provide their own linens. SATURDAY to SATURDAY rentals available in the summer months; 3 day minimum for any dangling seasonal dates or off-season rentals.
Guests who choose to stay here will get much more than a great location! The property offers a open, lovely backyard perfect for outdoor entertaining. It is equipped with a picnic table and a nice supply of lightning bugs to provide the perfect summer glow. Before taking a bike ride or leisurely stroll in the morning, be sure to enjoy coffee on our large screened front porch. After an afternoon on the beach, the fully enclosed outdoor shower provides a attractive alternative to conventional bathing. The three upstairs bedrooms are comfortable, offering two queen and two twin beds. There is an upstairs bathroom located at the end of the hall that has been recently updated. The downstairs playroom, just off the kitchen and adjacent to another bathroom, is a great spot for watching television or playing board games. It is a wonderful space for children to unwind while the adults gather elsewhere. In addition, the queen-sized sleeper sofa offers a comfortable place to rest on the first floor. Don't be surprised to see decor changes; we strive to keep things comfortable, functional and attractive for our guests. Please plan to enjoy the cottage in the summer season as well as for 'off season' getaways and special activities. Rehoboth hosts a variety of music, film and sports events throughout the year and our cottage is an ideal staging area for those wishing to participate.

About Cindy Mault
My grandmother purchased the cottage in 1952. I loved spending summers there with my parents, brothers and sisters. We enjoyed being close to the ocean and the boardwalk and looked forward to visiting each year. Even though I live and work in the Virgin Islands, a visit to Rehoboth has always provided me and my children with a connection to an old fashioned vacation filled with walking or riding bikes around town. The cottage is now filled with its fifth generation of happy family vacationers!

Why Cindy Mault chose South Rehoboth
The location is ideal. We enjoy coming up from the beach, hanging our towels on the line and taking outside showers. The large screened porch is fun for adults and children. The first floor 'playroom' offers a queen sleeper sofa option (with attached bath) and/or provides a quiet space for game playing or watching movies at the end of a full day!

Lovely cottage near the sea!!
What a wonderful old but updated house with everything you need!! So close to the beach and the boardwalk (a little over a block away) and within walking distance to Rehoboth's shops and restaurants. Stayed here with my mom and sister for a girls' weekend and the three bedrooms and two bathrooms were perfect! Thank you for sharing a piece of your family history with us:)
Thanks so very much for your kind words. It's so gratifying to see reviews from guests who enjoyed vacationing here. I've worked hard to keep the property traditional as well as updated so that it's super comfortable and attractive. I love the idea of a mom and daughter getaway! Please visit again!
My wife and I traveled down with our 6 month old. The house was perfect - the beach vibe we were seeking. Short walk to the beach/boardwalk on a beautiful street. The screened in porch was great! We had the Grandparents down one night so we could have a date night - walking distance to our favorite spots - Henelopen City Oyster House, Dogfish, etc. The master bedroom had enough space for our pack-n-play. The AC units were great! Backyard was awesome. Driveway was just enough space. This has to be the best value for the area. Thanks!
I'm so glad you had a good time; sounds like this rental was a perfect fit for your family. Thanks for your comment about great value. I try to set attractive rates for my guests. Please visit again soon!
Cozy Cottage but.....
This is a cute cottage with great walking distance to the beach and funland. However it is in drastic need of updating! Listing states "air conditioning" should state window air conditioners and in need of replacing! The smaller bedroom with twin beds has an old window air conditioner that is loud and does not function very well. We could not use that bedroom for our two small children. They couldn't fall asleep in this room. Carpets are old and dirty looking! Kitchen floor is old and dirty looking! Not worth the rental price! Have stayed in other rentals on this same street and they were updated and clean. Our cars were a mess from parking in the driveway! Overgrown trees, pine needles and pine cones everywhere! Would not rent this property again.
We try our best to be sure guests enjoy their stay at our property. Although this is its first negative review, we will follow up with property manager to be sure that new and returning visitors are treated to the same level of service that has been maintained over the years.
Cute house, near beach, shaded
The house is a perfect example of a traditional east coast beach house. The living room and screened porch were spacious and we literally lived on the porch! The squirrels and bunnies entertained us. We were 2 couples and an older mom so the sleeping arrangements were perfect. (We questioned what it would be like with 8 people and only 6 beds.) The 2 baths were nice particularly the one downstairs. And we loved the outside shower.The kitchen was well equipped especially for a beach rental. A grill would have been nice. We cooked in some and ate out the rest. Such nice restaurants in RB. One of our group had to work and found the WiFi went in and out. I had overlooked the room air conditioning units when renting but found it be satisfactory. We used the fans a lot; thank you for providing them. As usual we took a Coastal Kayak tour and enjoyed ourselves tremendously. We recommend them. We liked that the house was a short walk to the beach and to downtown RB.
I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. The porch is amazing and the "wild life" observation makes it even more fun!
Long story short on the grill; in years past guests really neglected it on their short stays and it was an eyesore at checkin. With the weekly turnover, it became too much for me to maintain in the way I wanted.. Now guests planning to grill bring something small and portable and find a safe place to do vacation grilling if they wish.
Enjoyed having you and hope you book at the cottage again next season.
Comfortable and close to everything worth doing!
This has been a long time favorite rental property for my extended family, but the very first stay for my wife, two kids, and me. What a treat! The house is comfortable and close to everything. The beach and boardwalk are five minutes away on foot so there was never a need to get in the car. We all rented bikes from a nearby bike rental and enjoyed riding through the neighborhood which is quiet and shady. We spent a lot of time on the porch just relaxing, reading, and enjoying wine and appetizers in the late afternoon. The front yard was the perfect staging area for an old-fashioned lemonade stand and our family spent a happy afternoon making signs, cutting up lemons and serving people walking up from the beach. Hope to get back to this lovely spot in August. The cottage is amazing, one that is truly unique and a lovely vacation spot for a relaxing and accessible stay.
Charming house w/ a great back yard
My only complaint is that we were counting on a BBQ grill to be at the house and brought charcoal with us. We were able to borrow a grill and continue with our beach week plans. This house is so charming and worked really well for our family with parents, 2 adult children and 2 teen children. Most of our meals were on the charming screened in porch - coffee in the morning was the best after walking a short block and 1/2 to the beach to watch sunrise! The living room was larger than we expected and spent several hours playing cards and games in that room. The outside shower is very convenient and we were thankful it was there as the temps were in the 90s for our beach week 2017.
It sounds like you had a great vacation at the cottage and I'm so glad. Yes, the screened porch and outdoor shower are favorites with most guests,, and I agree that board games just seem to be more fun when played at this locationI I stopped having a grill at the house some years ago; I was so glad to hear from you so we could clear that up and you could make the arrangements you did. Thanks for coming!
Located in the heart of Rehoboth Beach, this unique property gives guests the ability to walk or bike to the best attractions and activities in the area. The ocean and the resort's popular boardwalk can be reached in minutes! Local restaurants offer a variety of dining choices both casual and fancy. Again, these are a short walk from the cottage.
