About Debra H.

Family property since the 1930's. Our family has had many fond memories at the cottage and we continue to enjoy the beauty of the beach.

Why Debra H. chose Rehoboth Beach

The house was centrally located and had everything we needed. Loved the outdoor shower!

  • 5 of 5

The property listing was accurate. The location was walkable to the beach and to downtown Rehoboth Beach. The street was quiet and was nicely shaded. The property was clean and well maintained. It was a comfortable house and had everything we needed. We especially liked the outdoor shower and appreciated the 2 parking permits. Debra was responsive to all our questions and requests. She provided helpful hints regarding Rehoboth Beach. We would recommend this property to friends and relatives. The activities we liked were the beach, bike riding, outlet shopping, and cruising the boardwalk. We enjoyed a fun Thursday night at Cafe Azafran with its singing bartender and reduced price steaks.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

The owner, Debra is super friendly and helpful. The cottage is just that, an old renovated beach cottage. We actually stayed there with the whole family (myself and husband, plus my 18 and 21 year old sons). I really have nothing negative to say at all about this place. The price is right, it's small and my husband and one of the kids are over 6 feet tall and we still never felt overly cramped. The only thing is that it has an odor which you can tell is from the dampness, they clearly deal with dampness which I'm sure in this area is an issue with everyone. We tried to air the house out and that seemed to help. We don't have allergies so for us it was fine and the smell wasn't overwhelming, it's an old house, deal with it. The older small AC in the back bedroom kept it nicely cool but the newer portable one in the front bedroom wasn't really efficient and was very loud for our standards. I told the owner and she said right away its new and she will look into it.nthese in room ac's just are that way. The stairs going up to the 2nd floor are narrow and steep so maybe not suitable for elderly people but it was fine for me and I have bad knees. We were at first a bit puzzled by the pine needles all over the ground when there are no pine trees but I later learned this is a southern thing to do instead of mulch. The outside shower was amazing and it's the only shower I ever used. The indoor shower and toilet are new and very nicely done. There's some really cute touches in this house. You can tell the owner really cares about this property she has had in the family for a very long time. It's a short drive to the beach and even in high season there is plenty of residential parking. My boys often walked back and forth to the beach about 15 mins each way. It's a short walk into town which we did frequently. There's a great farmers market right next door once a week. There is this somewhat ugly hotel across the street which is definitely questionable but it never really bothered us and the traffic wasn't bad at all. I thought it would have been louder bc of the close proximity to the main road but it wasn't loud or busy at all. Loved it there and will definitely return when we go back down there. Thanks Debra for being such a great landlord. You rock!!!

Had a great 2 weeks ,just what we were looking for a private house not far from the beach and very close to all the restaurants and shops, no need to drive. A/C's need updating a little to loud.

The process to arrange the rental went very smoothly and the property met the discription given. I personally wanted a small house in town and it was perfect for one or two people.

It is an older cottage and I think it has a lot of charm. The front porch and outside shower are a great feature. The steps upstairs are steep and the bathroom is downstairs. You can walk to get coffee and breakfast in the morning. Everything in town is a close walk and I rode my bike a lot.

We were given extra blankets. The linens are provided. I liked the fact I was not gouged for a cleaning fee which I think is a rip off in other places I have stayed.

The road out front can get busy on the weekends and a bit noisy. The evenings are very quiet. All and all a good experience.
