Great house for a large group

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for a long weekend in September for a family event. The inside is immaculate and comfortable, and very clean. It has a great open floor plan, perfect for entertaining. Our favorite part was the outdoor space. There is a large wrap around deck in the back that connects from the screened in porch to the dining room. There is plenty of seating, and we loved the lighting and landscaping. The pool was perfect, and the outdoor furniture is very nice. The location is in a neighborhood off the beach, but it's an easy walk to the beach. You can also walk to downtown Rehoboth and Dewey in about 20 minutes. The bedrooms and bathrooms are all updated with nice beds and lots of space. One thing to note, the fourth bedroom upstairs in the back of the house can only be accessed through the third bedroom, or through the bathroom of the master bedroom. Would be fine for families, but worth knowing.

Thanks for a great stay, we loved it!

The perfect space for a big family.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. The outdoor space is great for getting together and having fun. The basement apartment was really useful as well. We had a great time and if we go back to Rehoboth would book this place again. It was only a 14min walk to the beach through a quiet neighborhood, the walk was really great and most times takes less time than driving over to the beach and trying to find parking.

Wonderful Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we have rented this property and it won't be the last! Our family of three generations love the house with its large rooms and spacious porches. It is conveniently located for our teenagers to walk or ride their bikes to the boardwalk and beach. The house has a fully equipped kitchen which is surrounded by a very comfortable great room. It is well maintained, clean and very livable, providing spaces for privacy as well as for large gatherings. This year, because of the extreme heat, we had a problem with the air conditioning. The owners were right on it, and the problem was fixed with a minimum of inconvenience to us. We really appreciated the owners' attention and to make our vacation problem free.

Family Celebration

  • 5 of 5

8 couples got together for a family celebration. The house was perfect. Everything we needed for cooking a big dinner and plenty of room so we were not on top of each other. The weather was horrible, but that just meant we got to enjoy being in the house more! Rich was great to work with. Answered questions and had left great information at the house for us. You will need a car to get to downtown and the beach.

Fantastic Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This property is a hidden gem. From the outside it looks like a sweet beach cottage, but inside, 5 bedrooms 3 bathrooms lots of space for the extended family. The yard and pool were great for all meals and hanging out. I loved having the laundry room in the outside building so I could do wash any time. Everything was clean and up to date. Beach block and walking to everything in Dewey. Owners were very responsive with any questions.

Perfect setting for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time during our stay at this delightful home. Large enough for adults and kids, with a very cool screened-in room that was fun to escape to. Absolutely gorgeous backyard that provided a perfect backdrop for drinks and laughs on the deck. Beautifully decorated and well-furnished. Rich and Marcia were easy to get a hold of, and responded promptly to our questions. Thank you for a delightful stay and plenty of new memories. Highly, Highly, HIGHLY recommended!!!
