Overview

About the property

Condo, two queen beds + Convertible sofa 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Salty Kiss Seaside... The way the beach was meant to be.

Feast your eyes on a living seascape from every room, surrounded by a charming cottage décor. Awake breathless at the vision of the sun rising from the sea enshrouded in crimson clouds, while preparing for your first sip of a perfectly chilled mimosa on the veranda. Spend your day frolicking on one of the nation's cleanest beaches or simply allow yourself to be caressed by its soft sands.

For the more energetic, ride your bike along the 20-mile circuit upon pristine trails traversing the wetlands of Gordon Pond and the vistas at Henlopen State park (don't miss the WW II seashore battery museum at Fort Miles). Continue on to the quaint historic town of Lewes for a lunch break. Afterwards, follow the Junction & Breakwater trail through marshes, fields, and a woodland canopy, returning to Rehoboth (hint: stop at the small bakery behind the Crystal Restaurant and reward yourself with one of their mini-Danishes).

Later, back at your villa relax with a glass of wine from your favorite vintner's estate while savoring the sunset's afterglow playing on the clouds above the sea, or take a short walk to the bay to see its full splendor. Following a great dinner at one of the fun restaurants close by, or in nearby Rehoboth, gravitate to the Dewey Beach live music nightlife or the amusements and shops along the Rehoboth boardwalk. Later, return to your retreat on the sea to greet the rising moon whose sparkling reflection reaches towards you across a placid sea (try a little pre-chilled B&B to warm the inner you). Finally, fall asleep to the soothing sound of the waves and float gently away as they permeate your dreams.

A beach experience both simple and pure, Salty Kiss Seaside is designed to relax and de-stress you from the cares of your other life.

Salty Kiss Seaside... memories of a lifetime... in a few days or a week. The way the beach was meant to be.

Maximum of four adults (age 21+). Total occupancy with children limited to 6 by law.

Only checks and PayPal via invoice accepted (NO e-checks or credit cards). If you click on the Book it Button, the listed price is an estimate (pet fees have not been added, specials, etc.). Wait for reply from Elaine before making your payment. See applicable fees, damage deposits, taxes, and cancellation policies in "Notes" in the RATES section.

Pet friendly year round (dogs only/fee applies/two dog max). From May 15 to Sept. 15 rules: dogs allowed on beach before 9:30 am and after 5:30 pm. All other dates dogs are allowed on the beach anytime. Please check the Town of Dewey Beach website for information regarding dog licenses and other rules.

NOTE: We DO NOT list on Craig's List.

NOTE: We do not rent to teenagers due to excessive damage experienced in the past.

NOTE: Sorry but NO cats allowed.

PLEASE NOTE: PHASE 1 OF THE ONGOING IMPROVEMENTS BEING UNDERTAKEN AT THE SUNSPOT CONDOMINIUM HAS BEEN COMPLETED, WITH THE FINAL PHASE TO BE UNDERTAKEN NEXT WINTER. UNFORTUNATELY, AS WITH ANY HALF-COMPLETED PROJECT, THE AESTHETICS TEND TO SUFFER AND THE AREA AROUND THE GARAGE ENTRANCE BEARS TESTAMENT TO THAT PROPOSITION. ALSO, GARAGE PARKING WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE. STARTING MAY 15TH, I WILL MAKE A PARKING PASS AVAILABLE AT NO CHARGE FOR PARKING ON MCKINLEY STREET WHICH HAS NOT POSED A PROBLEM IN THE PAST. THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT THE VIEWS FROM THE WINDOWS AND VERANDA OF SALTY KISS ARE UNAFFECTED. THE SUNRISES ARE JUST AS DAZZLING, THE OCEAN IS JUST AS SERENE, AND THE BEACH IS JUST AS WELCOMING TO YOU AND YOUR PETS.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Since last year, as you mentioned below, the new mattress and new stove were very nice. There had been 2 rocking chairs on the porch and the added wicker love seat on the porch was also a good addition in that all 3 of us had a place to sit on the porch. The condo is a very clean, cozy place with the best ocean view one could ask for - the weather was warm and dry so we spent countless hours on the wonderful porch enjoying the ocean view.

Great oceanfront condo!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from my bday weekend getaway. We really loved the Salty Kiss! Elaine and John were really easy to deal with through the rental process. The condo is updated, cozy, very clean and had all of the amenities our family and pups needed for a nice and relaxing time. The only thing needed were our own bedsheets and bath towels. The kitchen was stacked with coffee, sugar packs which I really appreciated through the day, the bedrooms were nice with a view of the ocean, living room was cozy and comfortable. We are a family of three, so it was perfect for us and will definitely stay here again. We were right on the beach! We literally walked down the steps, around the corner to be on the sand. We also enjoyed the 3 smart tv's through our inside time. Our pups also enjoyed the offseason freedom of being able to run on the beach at anytime. Thanks again!

Can't get much closer to the beach than this...

  • 4 of 5

Location was very good. End unit had good cross ventilation. Starts to get a little small after a few days. Front door closes by its self. Feels like the building has settled a bit. Long narrow hallway is tight and difficult to pass others. The full bath is off the kitchen, odd. The half bath off the master is extremely small. Not many outlets and too much decoration. No counter space in the kitchen. But overall the location makes up for the short falls. Get up very early to star gaze and meteor watch. One parking spot, additional spots are available but expensive. Loved the dog friendly beaches. Rehoboth was not worth the visit. Go sailing at the nearby Rehobeth sailing center. The bay is only waist deep if you tip over.

We stayed last July 4th week. Super cute and very clean. Great location for walking to restaurants and shops or to catch the trolley. Enjoyed coffee on the porch every morning. Owners are very responsive and easy to work with.

The only thing to make it better would be a washer and dryer.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very cute with a fabulous ocean view. Very close to everything. The beach was very dog friendly so there was always a chance for our dogs to meet and greet new friends. Thanks for sharing your condo with us and our dogs! We loved it and would absolutely stay again!!

The Jolly Trolley makes numerous stops in Dewey along Route 1 (Coastal Highway) and will take you to the Boardwalk in Rehoboth for a nominal charge.

Although Salty Kiss does not have laundry facilities, there is a laundromat in Rehoboth located on Rehoboth Avenue a little east of the circle on the north side and also in the Midway Shopping Center on Route 1.
