Wonderful 3-Bed/1-Bath English Basement Apartment on Maryland Avenue, 1.5 blocks to beach.
Park your car and relax for your vacation... You're at the beach! Located on the 2nd block of Maryland Avenue (a quiet street), this property is just steps to all the wonderful things downtown Rehoboth has to offer. There are two off-street parking spaces behind the home, and I also provide a parking permit for on-street parking.
Each bedroom has a queen bed, pillows, and a vertical fan. The beds have quilts, but you will need to bring your own sheets, towels, and other linens.
For those who like to cook while on vacation, the kitchen features a gas stove and oven, dishwasher, and large breakfast bar/countertop for prep. The breakfast bar has two stools. Also, there is a table with fold-down sides with four chairs stored inside of it. When coupled with two occasional chairs in the living room, you can comfortably seat six at the table. The kitchen is fully stocked, including coffee maker, microwave, toaster oven, hand mixer, pots, pans, bakeware, etc.. Also, since I used to be a renter, I know it can be a hassle when you forget to bring things like plastic wrap, aluminum foil, paper towels, and toilet paper. So, I keep those in stock at the unit. Even if you discover that you’re missing something, there are two Lingos Market convenience stores around the corner.
The condo has a wall unit air conditioner in the living room that cools the entire condo very nicely (one of the benefits of being below grade). It also has a free-standing air conditioner unit in the back bedroom of the condo (the farthest point from the wall unit) to ensure that you can get the place nice and cool even on the hottest days of summer!
The condo features high-speed internet, cable, and a TiVO DVR so that you can record your favorite shows while you’re at the beach. The living room has two queen futons and two occasional chairs which provide plenty of seating.
Next to the main entrance to the condo, you’ll find a large patio area. One half of that patio is for your use during your stay, and includes a table with 4 chairs. At the other corner of the patio is an outside shower for rinsing off after a day at the beach.
Several folks have asked what I mean by “English basement apartment”. An English basement is one that is partially below ground and partially above. So, in the case of my condo, you walk down a private stairwell to enter the condo. However, there are multiple high-set windows (about 5 feet off the ground) throughout the condo which make it 'light and airy' (in the words of one of my early renters). The ceiling is around 6’ 8”, and there is a lot of natural light in the unit, so the space feels quite comfortable. My place is clean and loved, and I bet that after you stay here once, you’ll want to come back. I certainly hope you will!
One note: Although I love animals and know they are family, I don’t allow pets in the condo. There are too many renters who have allergies. Also, I allowed 4-legged guests years ago in another property I had, and I found that it could be very challenging to get the place as clean as the next renters deserved.
Safety: If you are traveling with little ones, I have (in the pantry closet) child safety caps that you can put on the stove. I just ask that you please remove them when you are ready to leave. I also have smoke alarms, fire extinguishers, and other safety features in the condo.
