About Brian and Beth Bruffey

My family has been coming to the Dewey and Rehoboth beaches for over 40 years. Growing up with 4 brothers and 1 sister in Silver Spring, Maryland, our parents gave us the opportunity to build and enjoy an incredible amount of memorable experiences at the shore. My parents, along with my older brother, currently live in Rehoboth. One of my younger brothers also owns a cottage 4 houses down on Carolina St. We're incredibly fortunate to have this home and the opportunity to share it with others to enjoy all of the fun the beach has to offer to create those unique, memorable family and friends experiences.

Brian and Beth Bruffey purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Brian and Beth Bruffey chose Dewey Beach

We purchased this property primarily to provide the same opportunities my parents provided for us over the past 40 years to our family of now three young men. We're anticipating 123 Carolina will be their vacation destination for their families for the next 40+ years as well! This area is consistently recognized as one of the top vacation places in the country. How can you not love Dewey?

What makes this cottage unique

The convenient, 2 block walking access to the beach is fantastic. You can even hear the waves crashing on the beach from the porch. Very dog friendly area and walking distance to many of the Dewey Beach and Rehoboth activities. Featuring great restaurants, family atmosphere, boardwalk, shops, fishing/crabbing, summer night-life activities, and of course, the sun and fun at the beach, Dewey & Rehoboth have everything for a wonderful, restful and relaxing vacation.

Fantastic cottage--great for families and pets

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 and yellow lab were wowed by this adorable cottage located about 2 blocks from Dewey beach on a nice quiet street. We found everything very comfortable and very clean. The house is well stocked with everything you will need (from kitchen and cleaning gear to extra toiletries in case you forget anything).

Owner's Response: Thank you for the excellent review, Sara and more importantly, that your family enjoyed everything the cottage and area had to offer. And, it's nice to hear about how the additional amenities are helpful. Hope to have your family back (and yellow lab!) in the future. Thank you again! Cheers, Brian

Awesome!

I've stayed in a lot of beach houses over the years. This one wins hands down on cleanliness and coziness! I would easily recommend this beach cottage.

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at this house! The house was clean, comfortable....loved that it had central AC as we had some pretty hot days! We enjoyed the beach which was just a short walk away, rode our bikes to the Rehobeth beach area and took walks around the neighborhood with our dogs. Very much appreciated being able to bring our two dogs! We all had a great time and would love to come back again!!

Third stay @ this wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

Another great vacation at what has become our home base in Rehoboth / Dewey Beach! Accommodations are fantastic, nice shade for being outside and the screened in porch is a always a favorite. Brian and Beth are amazing hosts and we can't imagine staying anywhere else. So many fun things to do, restaurants to sample and close to everything while being in a very quiet neighborhood. Highly recommend, as this is a relaxing, spacious cottage and a short walk to the ocean!!! Currently working to determine dates for our next stay at this favorite listing.

Second stay at EXCELLENT Dewey Beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this wonderful cottage. After many rentals in different states this is our favorite. Top reasons for our five star rating:

As Advertised - Online pictures and descriptions are accurate

Well Stocked - Makes packing/shopping much easier - coffee, soap, trash bags, plastic wrap, etc

Cleanliness - THOROUGH cleaning after each guest

Single Level - No stairs for our aging Black Labrador

Location- Great neighborhood, 2 blocks to the beach allows for easy trips back and forth. Walking distance to restaurants/shops in Rehoboth and Dewey

Insurance instead of Security Deposit - Love the convenience of paying for insurance instead of dealing with a security deposit as in other rentals

Owners - Brian and Beth are EXTREMELY ACCOMODATING and RESPONSIVE

We love the screened porch which allows for relaxation rain or shine, we've already started planning for our trip next Fall

Owner's Response: Thank you, Juli, for taking the time and providing a glowing review. So glad we were able to make things right for you with another round of unfortunate weather and the construction across the street. Your insight into a couple of items that needed to be addressed were extremely helpful so we could take care of them prior to the next guests arrival. Thank you again!

great house, perfect for our needs.

  • 4 of 5

I was really happy with the property. I liked the fact the owners stocked it with paper products and cleaning supplies so we didn't have to bring them with us. Quiet neighborhood and close to the beach.

The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was while we were there they tore down the house across the street. For 3 days, we were greeted at 8 am with a back hoe tearing down and cleaning up the house. We actually found it fascinating, but after the 3rd day we were over it. This could be a problem with renters in the future when the new house is being built. Otherwise we had a terrific time. Weather was perfect.

Owner's Response: Hi Andrea, thank you very much for the positive review. We're very sorry about the timing of the house renovation across the street. Very unfortunate, but just like weather, we don't have any control over the type of event. Thank you again for staying at our cottage and hope to have you back in 2017. Cheers, Brian
