This beach home is located just 2 1/2 blocks from the beach on a quiet cul-de-sac street. Its cathedral ceilings give the feel of openness and space. While it is walking distance to the beach and nightlife of Dewey, you may choose to stay at the house and relax in the hot tub or sit on the huge 1,200 sq. ft. deck and read a book. This house is ideal for anyone looking for a true “beachy” feel. House sleeps 13.

Quiet cottage and just a walk to the beach
This was our second visit to this property. It looks exactly like the photos. Plenty of space with a variety of areas to relax. My favorites are the hot tub and the screened porch. It truly becomes a home away from home. Frank is easy to communicate with and a pleasure to do business with. If we return to Delaware, this is at the top of our list!
Thank you for coming back and being our guests. I am so glad to hear you had a great time. We hope to see you next summer!!!
House is in the perfect location! Close to the beach and the bay. Waking distance to the fun in Dewey. The hot tub was amazing! Frank was very accommodating and easy to work with. Even left a box of cookies for us to enjoy when we first arrived. Thank you! We will be back.
Really enjoyed our time here, very convenient location and super close to the beach! The hot tub and deck were great as well!
Thank you for the kind words, I am glad you had a great time. The house was pristine when I checked it after the rental - you were a pleasure as guests.
Please keep us in mind for future stays at the beach.
Location and Hot Tub = 5 stars, House gets 3
We were excited to find an affordable house close to the beach for our large family. Upon arrival we were disappointed that the house was not in the condition we would expect for a VRBO rental. As a family rule, we do not wear shoes inside of houses and our feet quickly turned black on the bottom from unloading and exploring the house. Food crumbs and stains on counters, the table, and in the refrigerator needed to be cleaned before we could unpack. The blinds in the bedrooms were visibly stained and dirty, as were several doorways, and the top cover blankets provided are worn to the point of being unattractive. The screen porch required cleaning before it could be usable at all. We understand weather contributes to this, but the level of cleaning required indicated it had not been cared for in some time. Cleaning supplies were left in a closet with a note to "Please help Yourself," but it wasn't the type of thing we expected to do as soon as we arrived.
We were aware from the pictures that the interior of this house is dated (for example, older TV's, kitchen, furniture). But being dated is not the same as being neglected. There is a charm to staying in a place with old stuff. But that charm is negated when the house and the items in the house are not well cared for. A little maintenance and care could add a lot of charm to this house. The deck has significant mold on it, making it dangerously slick when wet. Not exactly safe for a family with several young kids or grandparents. We were warned that the deck gets slippery when wet, but an occasionally bit of pressure washing/chemical treatment would help with this issue.
Although the property is close to the beach you must cross a busy highway to gain access. It is a quick drive to several other area attractions, something that was very appealing for our large family.
The best part of the house was the hot tub. Large and clean, it was the highlight of the visit whenever we were at the house.
Overall, we understand that you get what you pay for and this house was very affordable for our October beach stay.

Such a great place, awesome porch
