Property description

This is a wonderful beach block cottage so close to the beach it's easy to slip back mid day to get a drink for the beach! Take your coffee down in the morning and watch the porpoise in the Ocean. Take the kids down after dinner to fly a kite. The beach is so close that you can frequent it easily and zip back to the cottage for a snack.

This is our family's beach house and we rent to a few families throughout the summer (when we do not use it). It is perfect for a large family, 2 families or a family traveling with extended family. The house sleeps 11. The owner lives in Rehoboth Beach & the house is well maintained. We rent to mature, responsible adults only!! No party rentals!

Beat the traffic!!! The rental is available weekly (7 nights), Sunday - Sunday. Sat. to Sat. rentals mean you are stuck in traffic coming and going as almost all rentals in the area start and end on Sat.

House has 5 bedrooms and 2.5 baths plus an enclosed outdoor shower. There is parking for 4 vehicles. If you have smaller vehicles, you may be able to fit an additional fifth car in the garage and a sixth car in the back of the house. When in doubt, parking permits can be purchased from the Town Hall. There is a Jolly Trolly stop at the end of the street that will take you right into Rehoboth Beach and the Boardwalk and amusements.

SOME GUEST REVIEWS (From previous VRBO listing)

This house was perfect for our family vacation. Just a short distance to the beach and the heart of Dewey. Also a short Jolly Trolly ride to the Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk. The owners have thought of everything when furnishing this house. The covered porch was a godsend when the younger folks took over the main TV area. Would love to rent again.

A Spring Weekend at the Beach

This beach house was perfect for a get-a-way weekend for friends! We were on the beach block and within walking distance to many mom and pop shops and restaurants in Dewey as well as walking distance from Rehoboth Bay. We were also able to go up to the Tanger Outlets that were just a few mile up the road.

The house had some older features but the bathrooms were just updated with new everything, and especially liked the newly tiled floors and new vanities. The house was very clean and tastefully decorated. There was plenty space for us to each have a bed and the back screened in porch was perfect for enjoying the ocean breeze with our evening card games.

The attached outdoor shower was convenient for rinsing off the sand and helped us keep the sand out of the house. We were able to easily walk and drive down to the boardwalk to enjoy the shops and activities there (the Funland has good rides for children and adults), and the walk was only a mile in each direction.

We enjoyed several restaurants in the area including Grotto Pizza which is walkable and an awesome sandwich shop (NIcks) just a block south of the house! On the same block, just a stones throw from the front door there's also a wonderful salad place for those that like their veggies! And, there are several little surf shops that had plenty of whatever you might need for the waves and the sun.

An activity we enjoyed was getting a permit for a bonfire on the beach! We had a ton of fun with s'mores and the sand and the surf! It was really easy to get the permit at the Dewey Beach Town Hall (everything is cash though) and you end up paying less than $20. after you get your deposit back.

We had a great weekend and I'm glad we chose this house because it was so centrally located and was very reasonably priced for it's location! I would definitely come back and I have recommended it to all my family members and friends!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1965

About: We have many years of Dewey Beach memories. Dave Vaughn (now in his late 70's) went to Dewey Beach as a teenager. He married Margo Vaughn in 1956; Margo had been to Dewey Beach every summer since she was a baby. Dave and Margo took their 7 kids to Dewey Beach every summer until they left the house. Dave and Margo retired to Rehoboth in the 1990's but kept their beach house for their kids to use. Here is a picture of Dave and Margo, their 7 kids and 17 grandchildren.

Why Rehoboth by the Sea, Dewey Beach, DE, USA:
Because Dewey Beach doesn't have high-rises and the beaches are not as crowded as neighboring beaches. There are great activities and restaurants in walking distance. Dewey Beach offers family activities during the week such as bonfires and movies on the beach.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The enclosed outdoor shower is a great treat! Walkable to many activities: restaurants, convenience stores, Dewey Beach bonfires, Dewey Beach movie on the beach, trolly stop to Rehoboth etc..
