*****************************************

We are off Saulsbury Street, mid-ocean block, south side, nestled among other cottages 5 lots from the beach. From our house to the surfline is 150 yards. On quiet nights you can hear the ocean from the bedroom windows.

Two bedrooms include one with a platform full size double bed (storage space underneath) and one with a bunk bed combination (full size double on the bottom and twin on the top). Living room sofa is a queen-size sleeper.

Living room/dining room kitchen is a wonderful open space plan with partial cathedral ceiling and skylights. Master bedroom also has a skylight.

Dewey Beach occupancy laws allow 2 persons per bedroom plus 2 in a living area on a sleep sofa, making a maximum occupancy of 6 for our house. However, our cottage/small house is most comfortable for up to 4 adults or a family of up to 6 with children. Seating inside is a 3 seat sofa plus 6 dining chairs.

It is about a mile to the town of Rehoboth, which has many attractions including the Boardwalk and Funland for kids. The Jolley Trolley runs every 10-15 minutes if the walk is too far. Fast food, casual and formal restaurants, as well as shops and activities, are available within steps in Dewey Beach.

We have vacationed here since we bought the house in 1995 as a childless couple waiting to adopt, and have precious and priceless memories of weekends and summer weeks here as our family expanded with two daughters from Russia (now 23 and 19), and a daughter and grandchildren from Mexico (23, 7 and 4).

Over the years we have been blessed to share our vacation home with family, friends and tenants who have made memories of their own, and shared some with us through notes, cards and photos.

Our goal is to provide you with a wonderful vacation experience like we had in Rehoboth/Dewey Beach as children: a basic beach cottage with the ocean only steps away, and a place where kids can be kids and adults can relax and not be concerned about sand and wet suits.

Dewey Beach has a reputation for being a party town, but it is also a wonderful place for families and children - especially the small oceanblock houses like ours

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: We are an international and special needs adoptive family. Mom (Bonnie) is a psychologist; Dad (Keith) is now our 'stay-home dad' after 8 years doing mercy ministry among the poor in Juarez, Mexico. Russian-born daughters are Amy Oksana (26) and Jennifer Marina (22) . Mexican-born daughter is Yajaira Margarita (26) We also have the most wonderful grandchildren, Kimberly Diana (10)and Kevin Michael (7), and Domenick (1). We are very blessed.

Why the Owner Chose Rehoboth by the Sea, Dewey Beach, DE, USA:
Bonnie had vacationed at the MD/DE shore from the time she was 3 years old, and Keith from about age 10. We rented for many years but had kept our eye on these little cottages. When one came on the market at the time we had a small inheritance from Keith's dad's estate, we were able to realize our lifetime dream of a little cottage at the ocean. 'Making memories' at Rehoboth/Dewey is now a four generation experience, with the grandkids loving it as much as we did, and our children did.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
It is SO close to the beach, so easy to go back if you forgot something, to go to the bathroom (or take a potty training child back quickly!) Our little homeowners group of 9 all get along well and those who rent have had nice tenants as long as we've owned. We love having our little cottage where we can kick back, be casual and relax.
