Great property :: Wonderful location
The rental is the second floor of the owner's house. It's a very well kept property, super clean and cozy. There is a beautiful balcony, the kitchen is fully equipped.
It's an amazing location - 5-7 min walk to the beach, the same time to get to all Rehoboth attractions - stores, restaurants, etc. There is also a lake across the street, you can see it from the balcony.
Mary Ellen (the owner) and Linda (the rental manager) are both super great, very responsive and just wonderful people to be around.
I definitely recommend this place and would stay there again.
Perfect beach location, right near Rehoboth Ave
While this rental is on the second floor of an owner occupied first floor, it provided the perfect spot to celebrate a birthday weekend for 6 women. With 2 toilets, and 1 indoor and 1 outdoor shower, no one had to wait for very long to get ready. The outdoor deck provided the perfect place to chat and relax. The kitchen was amply supplied with glassware, coffee mugs, plates and utensils. We didn't want for anything.
The location is what makes this little getaway a true gem. It's about a two and a half block walk to the beach and is equally well-located to walk easily to all the nightlife and restaurants that make Rehoboth such a destination.
Highly recommend this place unless you must have lots of bathrooms. (Only one person actually used the outdoor beach shower, but it was perfectly fine.)
Great weekend property!
We booked a last minute trip with family we had in town, and this was a great spot for us! Our primary focus was the beach and the boardwalk, so we were just looking for a place to sleep and eat breakfast, and this hit the spot. The location couldn't be beat, and Mary Ellen (the owner) and Linda (Rental Manager) were so accommodating.
If you are a group with more than 1 car, I would recommend reaching out to the manager in advance of your trip and letting her know. There is another house on the lot for a larger group, and renters of that property may require a lot of parking. Included for us was one driveway spot and a street parking permit, however the permit spots are on a first come/first serve basis, and parking across the street is metered ($0.25/7 minutes from 10am-midnight daily). Mary Ellen went above and beyond for us by moving her car to a street spot as soon as she saw it opened, so I was able to snag it for the remainder of the trip.
We would definitely stay here again!
Good location, great price, friendly owner!
This property is a 1/4 mile from the beach and very close to all hot-spots in town. Olive Street is adorable and lined with very nice properties. The owner, who lives on the first floor, is very friendly and helpful. The unit is clean and a bargain for being so close to the beach/town. You need to bring sheets and towels, but the kitchen is well furnished and the unit is clean. We had 6 adults and 1 child and were comfortable. Having 1.5 bathrooms is not an issue as long as people are Ok taking advantage of the outdoor shower. Having 2 parking spaces included was very helpful as parking in RB can be challenging during the busy Summer months.
Great location, good price, very friendly.
This rental was in great shape and was a delight to stay there overall. The rental manager was very responsive via text. Some critiques would be that "sleeps 10" is a bit of a squeeze - it would include sleeping 2 people to every full bed. They also were still in the midst of cleaning when we checked in but the quality of the home was great. Be sure to bring your own linens - towels, sheets, pillow cases. I would rent this property again. Thanks for accommodating us!
Fun for Families but Far Less So for Friends
For the right group and the right occasion, this place would be wonderful. The house is ideally located, the right balance between beach and city; the premises are well maintained; and the kitchen is adequately appointed, equipped with all the essentials that one would need for a getaway. I would imagine that a large family on vacation would thrive in this rental. Heck, bring Uncle Jim, too!
For the wrong group and the wrong occasion, however, this place would likely be a disastrous choice. Ours, unfortunately, was just such a group. We're all unwed professionals who work long hours and therefore take our free time very seriously. When we booked this place, we had no idea that the owner (a mostly nice and colorful elderly woman who values her quiet time) resided in the unit directly below ours. That sort of put a damper on our Memorial Day weekend because we were on pins and needles about disturbing her peace, particularly after the harangue we had been subjected to. I'm sure our rambunctiousness earned us every bitter word she cast our way, but we simply would not have chosen this place had we known that she would be in the unit below. This is probably the single most important piece of information that any renter should have when considering this property.
We also didn't realize that the place doesn't really sleep ten people, not comfortably. Eight is more realistic—and that's only if those eight people are OK getting cozy with one another. We were ten, and we made it work. But my, was it a squeeze! We had to use two air mattresses (one of which we had to bring).
It's true that the property does face water. But calling it a lake might be a slight exaggeration. As the abundant and very songful bull frogs occupying "Lake" Gerar made vividly apparent, it probably leans more toward pond than lake, despite its name. Maybe this is another feature that recommends this place to families: one needn't fear for three-year-old Madison's safety near Lake Gerar; she could probably stand straight up in most of it with no problem. Readers may also be interested in knowing that the body of water is in front of, rather than behind, the house and separated from it by a street. It looks great for a nature walk, though, even if not for jet skiing.
In sum, I think a conscientious family in search of a quiet vacation would do very well here. If, however, you're a group of friends looking for a party vacation, you probably should look for a different place.
What Rafael failed to mention was that after checking into the 2nd floor apartment on Friday afternoon and spending a quiet evening, the majority of the group of ten convened at 3AM to engage in loud conversation. The sliding door was opened and closed repeatedly and one of the group stomped back and forth the length of the deck above 1st floor living area about a dozen times until he and a few others apparently went in about 4:15AM. The remainder of the group stayed talking loudly and playing music until 5AM. One member tapped loudly rhythmically on the deck every 10-15 seconds. Serious consideration was given to calling the Rehoboth Beach Police Department - Rehoboth does have a Disturbance of the Peace ordinance. Renting a property entitles the tenants to privacy and "quiet enjoyment" of the property. The behavior of this group was immature, rude and inconsiderate, regardless of who was residing in the first floor unit.
Rehoboth 's three freshwater lakes are considered local, if not national, treasures (see Save Our Lakes 3 website).
I fully agree and told the renter that this property was totally inappropriate for this group's needs.
