About Richard Wathen
We are long time DC residents and have owned rental property in Rehoboth for many years. We owned a condo originally but have always been looking for a house to buy for both rental and our own use. We've rented beach houses ourselves and have a lot of experience in what makes for a practical, pleasant house.
Richard Wathen purchased this House in 2015
Why Richard Wathen chose South Rehoboth
We bought this house in 2015 and this winter made many improvements to both update it to a more open, modern floor plan and add new amenities. Its a traditional house (1940) but was big and well situated on the lot. The pictures have all been updated. We liked the combination of the original elements - screen porches, front porch - with how it could be updated while opening up the kitchen and dining area and access from the kitchen right to the pool and deck areas. We added an extra bathroom, renovated of all the other bathrooms, kitchen and outdoor deck areas. The air conditioning and water heaters we're completely redesigned and modernized.
What makes this House unique
We think this house brings together a lot of great attributes. We looked for a long time before finding this combination. Location: Its 2/12 blocks from the beach and boardwalk, right down Philadelphia to Funland. Its only a block from Rehoboth Avenue - three minutes to Starbucks in the morning and the new Dogfish Brewing location - but is still a remarkably quiet residential street. Pool: There are a limited number of Rehoboth houses with pools - and ours is a nice size with still a lot of deck and yard space. Pets: We allow a dog, because we know this is a family house that are likely to have a dog. We've got professional indoor cleaners to keep it spotless but we understand that a week of boarding is tough on the dog and expensive. Parking and Accessibility: Lots of parking in the driveway which hopefully facilitates easy in and out. In this location, its possible to never need a car, but you have to get there. We've tried to make the interior fun and interesting - its a beach house and should reflect that. We updated the walls with pine shiplap and installed all new lighting fixtures.

Bright, airy and spacious!
My weekend spent in Rehoboth was nothing short of lovely. The home was clean and ready right when I arrived. The upper deck and enclosed porch were wonderful areas to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or lay out in the mid afternoon sun. There was ample parking and within walking distance of any major shops or restaurants. I would highly recommend!
Great place to stay!
The house was everything we wanted and needed. It was spacious and clean. The location was good, just a short walk to the main part of town, beach and St. Edmund Catholic church. Two young children, 3 and 7 and eight adults, 32 to 63, and our dogs, were comfortable and never underfoot. However, because there are no curtains or rugs, the noise does amplifie. One
suggestion to future renters, bring cards and games for the bad weather days.
We were very happy staying here. Richard was very accommodating. We were glad we chose his house.
Beautiful house in a great location!
We had a terrific stay in this beautiful house, close to downtown Rehoboth and the beach. Well-appointed kitchen, comfortable dining and living areas, and spacious bedrooms. Many updates, including the 3 full baths, stainless appliances, and zoned thermostats to keep us comfortable. Very clean and lovely decor.
This home is beautiful, cozy, and such a great location!
I would highly recommend staying here! The decor is beautiful, the house was cozy, comfortable, and is in a great location! It is a very well maintained home and the owner is so pleasant. I definitely plan on coming back for another stay!
Fantastic Beach Getaway!
This house was fantastic for our beach getaway. It was nicely redone, and very clean. The weather was great during our trip so we took advantage of the outside areas and the screened in porch. Perfect place to relax and read a book. A couple blocks from the beach was convenient as we walked everywhere. Would definitely recommend, and would also definitely return. Thank you!
Great property. Ideal location.
This 3 bedroom, 3 bath house is the perfect vacation get away to enjoy all that Rehoboth Beach has to offer. The yard and in-ground pool, as well as the 2 decks and screened in porch, offer a relaxing space that entices you to spend some time at home rather than all your time out and about, although it's just around the corner from the shops, restaurants, boardwalk and beach, so park your car and leave it parked. While you must provide everything for yourself, from sheets and towels to bathmats and toilet paper, as long as you pack all your essentials, you'll find this the perfect space to spread out, relax, and entertain in. There were some issues with the locks and handles on the 2 sets of back doors ( we couldn't get them to lock and one of the handles came off a couple of times), but that's the only issue we had while staying here. I can't imagine a more enjoyable place to stay. We will definitely be back.
