Beautiful house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Fantastic Beach Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Beautiful property, pool, and close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation here! The owner was always easy to reach with any questions we had. The house had more than enough space for our family, and the pool was wonderful for the kids! Very close to shopping, restaurants, and a nice walk to the boardwalk and beach.

Great Spot, Great Neighborhood perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Richard for hosting our family at your beautiful house. It was the first vacation with our adult children and two grandchildren, ages 3.5 and 1. Everyone had a great time. The house is very spacious, with many places for everyone to have a good time. Our granddaughter especially enjoyed the pool while the screened in porch gave plenty of space for our grandson to move around, play and explore. As for adults, the porches were ideal. The house is clean, beautifully renovated and has everything the family needs to feel at home. For us , the well equipped kitchen was really important, and you didn’t disappoint. Everything is there, down to a wine cooler. And of course the area. Close to everything, yet very nice and quiet. We highly recommend the 224 Philadelphia Street, and hope to stay there again. Thanks again.

Great property. Ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

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.

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.
