Located on the Delaware Shore, the Dewey Beach Resort Area is known for great hotels, fun restaurants, specialty stores, amusements, beautiful homes, tax-free shopping and some of the finest beaches anywhere. Dewey Beach is a unique stretch of real estate, Dewey is only two blocks wide and surrounded by water. One block to the east of Route One is the wide sandy beach overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, while to the west lies the quiet shore of the Rehoboth Bay. Dewey Beach is a small town of less than 400 people, but it has become a popular tourist destination for anyone interested in water sports and beach vacations, and is the perfect spot for a relaxing family getaway. Dewey offers beach sports and activities as well as great restaurants, majestic sunsets, live music, dancing, and nightlife that is world famous for adults of all ages.

Young and old alike have come to make Dewey Beach “a way of life” during the summer months as visitors to the popular seaside resort return year after year. And more than ever, people are enjoying the peaceful months in the spring and fall. As the First State’s youngest town, Dewey Beach is continually growing, offering more and finer accommodations to those who vacation here. But while progress makes its mark, Dewey retains her charm with the older cottages and houses, giving the town a character all its own.

During the summer, Dewey hosts numerous family activities including weekly movies and bonfires on the beach, skim boarding camps and clinics, and yoga on the beach. All of the members of the family are taken care of in Dewey, where leashed dogs are permitted on the beach before 9 AM and after 5 PM.

The beaches are definitely Dewey's most precious resource, receiving consecutive 5 star ratings for water cleanliness from the Natural Resources Defense Council! The Dewey Beach Life guards are a welcomed, friendly presence daily during the summer months as they keep residents and visitors safe.

Visitors enjoy exploring 30 miles of unspoiled Delaware coastline and our many parks. Nature based activities include State Parks, kayaking, nature cruises, ferry rides, walking trails, surfing, skimboarding, paddleboarding, sailing or exploring the water’s edge.

Located just a couple miles from Dewey, take a short walk to Rehoboth beach or ride the Jolley Trolley to explore Rehoboth's main street and boardwalk area! Rehoboth has a quaint small town feel – a real walking downtown and all the fun, relaxation or excitement you could ask for. Rehoboth is known for awesome hotels, specialty stores, amusements, beautiful homes, tax-free shopping and some of the finest restaurants anywhere.

The Resort’s Gateway (Coastal Highway), offers the famous Tanger Outlet Center and more great restaurants, bars, shops, rides, and attractions.

You will want to stay and return often to enjoy our beaches, boardwalk, natural beauty and hospitality. Bring your sandals and flip flops!

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect in every way. Stones throw to the beach, close to all the restaurants/bars in Dewey. The deck in the backyard is great to hang out and bbq on the grill that's provided. The kitchen is fully equipped with whatever you might need. The owner (Rob) was also very responsive. I would gladly stay here every time I went to Dewey.

You will not find another one better!!! Clean, quiet, relaxing!!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely exceeded any expectations we had. Everything was great, very clean & comfortable. In the typical Rob fashion not a thing to be disappointed with & as always customers treated like family and Rob always makes sure everything is ok. Everything you need for a perfect beach vacation is at the house Rob has everything covered from inside the house to outside fun & games including beach chairs, toys & games. We will be back!!

Great place.......so true, parked the car and didn't need it for the whole week, great location!!!

  • 5 of 5

Had a big crew for the week (8 people), all adult ages and really enjoyed the place and the area. Rob was great to deal with, place clean and enough room for all. He beach supplies were endless......a nice surprise. Plus the front and back porch areas provide additional space which is great for coffee in the AM and happy hour in the evening.

comfortable home close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for deluxe, look elsewhere but if you want a large comfortable home close to the beach, this fits the bill. The bedrooms on the main floor were on the small size, those on the second floor were in the case of the master bedroom which has a king size bed was larger and the two other bed rooms were on the small size. There are two full bathrooms and one powder room. The kitchen was large and very well equipped. There are a large washer and dryer as well as a good sized dishwasher. The backyard has a deck, gas grill which worked well and an outdoor shower. Linens and towels were provided and the beds were made upon our arrival.

We were here in the hottest part of July during a heat wave and the air conditioner kept us cool.

Lots of thought went into the design of this home and it is extremely comfortable. There are enough televisions to please and the internet was fast. Would I stay here again - yes!
