About The Owner

AS young mothers in 1980 my best friend and I shared a week in this cottage and every summer following until we could afford a week each (then we both went for both) with our no longer 1998 tho old babes that owned it decided to sell and we feared they'd sell to a non-renting family SO we put our pennies together with my oldest by then an officier in the USMC and we purchased and continued to rent to the same families--now we are the old babes and the grandchildren of the first wave are renting from us..Won't you join us and visit our Green Granny Cottage for an old-fashioned summer vacation--a walk to the beach, bird watch, barbeque, catch fireflys and 'kick-the-can' on the cul-de-sac.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1998

Why The Owner chose Rehoboth Beach

This is ideal for walkers-Silver Lake is a wildbird refuge one street away, or at the end of our cul-de-sac--you can walk north on the beach and shortly reach the beginning of the Boardwalk that leads to the Amusements and Beach treats galore or you can walk south following the side walk and reach the Rusty Rudder for Sunset on the bay drinks, live music and a chance to dance reggae with a toddler, your teen or well as the tanned and the jolley trolley and the bike taxis go right by the street corner on which we sit.

What makes this cottage unique

The most wonderful benefit is the sea air filling up the 12 ft ceilinged rooms and the ceiling fans, and the 10 ft windows,screened (or shut for the central air) just providing a light feeling away from the ringing of phones (if you turn them off) and the demands of the non-family work a day world. Here you can shop the discounts or sit and read listening to the ocean or build sand castles or just walk the ocean is very restful and convenient enough to the activity centers, water parks, golf, bumper cars etc for the young and the restless to entertain themselves in safety protected by a walking constabulary which seems to employ ALL the local young people/teens not occupied as lifeguards or in the shops and restaurants. Its a treat to visit a simpler place and time.

Sent by text message:

This is a delightful beach cottage. Centrally located two blocks from the ocean and ten blocks from the heart of Rehoboth. We have spent many summers there and love the place more with every new mwmory we make...Our youngest now wants to bring her fiancee to see if he passes the beach test!

Fabulous house & close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year of vacationing at Elizabeth's Rehobeth beach house. 2 great experiences! It's on Carolina and only 3 short blocks to the beach. You can also walk to Dewey or Rehobeth. Dewey is only a few short blocks! Rehobeth is a little farther but you can hop on the trolley shuttle if you do prefer. Everything is so easily accessible. Even parking! We park 2 cars in the driveway and there's a parking pass for a 3rd car.

The house is very well kept up, clean, and very roomy - 2 full bathrooms, 4 bedrooms and multiple beds and tons of extra sleeping accommodations for my 2 brothers and I and our 3 families.There's a big kitchen with a dinette, a large living room, a nice sun room and a great yard for sunbathing and cooking outside (there's an outdoor grill). There's also an outdoor shower. Word has it there will be a screened in porch next year. My wife is a screen porch fanatic, so she's really excited about that!

We all love the house! We've vacationed annually in Rehobeth and Dewey for 48 years! My parents started the tradition when I was barely a teen. We had stayed on Carolina for decades - in a house on the beach Block. New owners doubled the price so we started searching for something more reasonable. Many hours of searching resulted in finding this particular beach house. What a find! Next year will be our 3rd year for sure!

Nice place. Clean and very roomy and only a couple short blocks to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We’ve stayed here for a week or more the last 3 years and always loved it. There’s a ton of room for lots of people and a nice sun room too. We’ll be staying here for a long time to come.

A lovely beach house

  • 4 of 5

This is an older beach house with lots of character and charm. There were some deficiencies such as lack of AC in the upstairs bathroom. A larger bed in the upstairs double would be desirable. All in all it is charming and we enjoyed our stay.

Fun near the beach

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the cottage to celebrate our French Exchange Student's 17th birthday. He also brought along another exchange student from Turkey. They had a terrific time because of the close proximity to the beach and board walk. Our dogs enjoyed the stay and even ventured to the beach for dog hours. We had the opportunity to meet Elizabeth and she was great. Good communication and very accommodating. We hope to stay again in the future!

Perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

This house was so charming and the location was incredible. We have a one year old and a dog so we needed a place that was child and pet friendly and this place was a perfect match. There was plenty of space for all of us. The location was key. It was only 3 blocks to the beach so we could walk from the house, and less than a five minute drive to downtown. We actually could have walked along the beach to get to the boardwalk in Rehoboth if we really wanted to. We were even a few minutes away from the Tot Lot near Silver Lake so our son could play.

The owner was amazing and did all she could to accommodate us, even replying to our texts while on vacation in Greece!

We would definitely stay here again!
