About the property

A perfect spot for your beach vacation

Beautifully decorated, light-filled and very comfortable home. Huge screened porch on main living level creates an additional living and dining room - which is always cool and comfortable because of the large shade trees in the yard. Another huge porch on second floor at the back of home which is covered. It also stays cool and comfortable thanks to the trees. In fact, when you sit on the upper porch, you almost feel as though you are in a tree house! Spacious outdoor shower. Off street parking for 2-3 cars. No Rehoboth Beach parking permit required. Gas grill provided for outdoor BBQ. The kitchen is stocked with cookware and dishes in case you want to cook (although there are tons of fabulous restaurants if you prefer to eat out!) An easy walk to the beach or to town (Rehoboth or Dewey). Just 2-3 blocks from Silver Lake, which is a beautiful lake and provides perfect bird watching. You'll have no shortage of things to do, whether you decide to spend the day on the beaches, go shopping in town, shop at all the outlets, go to the movies, walk the boardwalk, play at Funland or eat at the endless array of restaurants. A morning walk on the beach is a must. And we are an easy bike ride to many of the state parks. You are sure to have plenty to do, regardless of your interests!

About Mary Ellen Walsh

We have owned this home since it was a tiny 300 square foot cinderblock summer cottage. In 2002, we removed the cottage and built the current home. We love our home, but due to our children's busy schedules, even in the summer, we decided to rent our home for part of this summer. Our house will not "feel" like a rental house because it is is truly our home.

Mary Ellen Walsh purchased this house in 1970

Why Mary Ellen Walsh chose South Rehoboth

We absolutely love our home and hope you do too! We are in a quiet neighborhood, which is a benefit when you are ready to get some sleep! But we are close enough to downtown Rehoboth that we often walk or bike into town when we are ready for some action. We also have very easy access to the beaches and Dewey Beach. We have a huge well-stocked kitchen if you like to cook! Our screened porch runs the full width of the house and is fantastic for relaxing and eating. We also have a large covered deck upstairs that faces the back of the house. A wonderful space to read a book or take a nap if you decide to skip the beach one day. And the front bedroom upstairs has a lovely deck to sit and have morning coffee and watch all the folks out for their morning walk to the beach.

What makes this house unique

Our house is very comfortable for living and entertaining. We have two wonderful shade trees in the back yard which keep the yard (and screened porch and upper deck) comfortable even on the steamiest of summer days.

Great House...Great Location!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay! Quiet neighborhood, but very close to everything. I walked the dogs to downtown Rehoboth Beach (not even 20 minutes) and what a super cute town. So many fun shops and great restaurants. The Liquor store is just a block away, which was convenient. Mary Ellen was a great host and was always quick to respond and very accommodating for our needs. House was very well stocked with everything we needed and was really clean too. We loved the open layout on the first floor and all the balconies off of the bedrooms and the large screened in porch. Would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it. Thanks for opening your beautiful home to us.

Lovely clean tastefully furnished well kept house

  • 5 of 5

Such a nice house; a big screened in porch in the back on the first floor and a deck/porch on the second floor too. Three bedrooms plus another room that could be used for sleeping too. And multiple bathrooms. Everything was sparkling clean. The kitchen is very well equipped. It's an open floor plan and although there were only two of us in this big house, it was obvious that it would be a great place for families with children. The neighborhood is beautiful and it's a short walk to the road which leads right into Rehoboth and on to the beach. If one were to live in Rehoboth, the Silver Lake area where this house is located would be the place to be.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Mary Ellen was wonderful to work with. The house was spotless, very comfortable for 5 adults. We loved the screened in back porch and outside shower, very spacious. Kitchen very well appointed and the few spices we needed, we could use what was in the kitchen rather than bringing them. 15 minute walk to the beach. We had a beach wagon that we could put our stuff in and made the walk very easy. We loved the keyless entry! So convenient for all to come and go! Thanks for sharing your home with us! Loved it!!

Visited over 4th of July week. Mary Ellen is a fantastic host. Gave us a welcome pack of info that was invaluable. House is fully stocked with anything you could need & impeccably maintained. Beach is a little father than we expected, but we ended up liking the Dewey beaches better anyway, so we'd drive there and use the parking app at the meter spots.

All Girls Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this house with friends! There were 8 of us Ladies from Long Island away on a girls weekend. We truly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful house. It is cozy, comfortable and very clean. It has everything you need. Great appliances, fully stocked kitchen, outside grill, Central air conditioning, ceiling fans, light dimmers. The screened in patio is an awesome place to hang out for morning coffee and evening chats. The 3 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms are a nice size and very clean. The den downstairs with the pull out sofa has a door for privacy, which we did not expect. The house has a great outdoor shower, with a door, little dressing area, mirror, shelf and hooks. The house is on a nice quiet block, a short drive to the beach, stores and the town. The owner is a lovely person to deal with. She responsive and straight forward. I would highly recommend this house - it feels like a home!
