When we first bought 217 Rodney Street, the house was abandoned and over grown. But the structure was sound. Over the years, we have lovingly updated and expanded the home without losing the architecture we loved so much. We have raised our kids here and entertained many beloved friends and family members. Our Rehoboth beach home is absolutely our 'pure happy place.' We love it here. We hope you will too.

Best,

Cindy and Tony Crane

Cindy and Tony Crane purchased this house in 2004

It is a cozy, comfy, large 5 bedroom home on an over-sized lot, which is well located and has a beautiful view. Our patio and game house, as well as hot tub make this place special.

This house was great it was super clean and very roomy, a great place for a big family or even multiple families. Its a short walk to the beach and the yard is big with a large in ground hot tub. The back patio was so nice for evenings with the fire pit. We liked it so we have already booked it for our summer vacation. This was a definite find for a beach vacation.

House was great, but...

I feel like I need to write 2 separate reviews for our experience.

The House: 5/5 stars
First of all, the house was amazing. We went with a group of friends and our dogs for the weekend. The house has plenty of space, plenty of bathrooms, and a nice centralized area between the kitchen and living room to gather for dinner/games/drinks, etc. We walked to the beach with our dogs and were also able to walk to town for dinner and brunch. Our weekend was lovely and the house was everything we needed.

The red tape:
Our experience with everything else was less desirable. Had to sign a lease with a hefty security deposit that had to be overnighted due to a series of miscommunications, however everything eventually worked out. As for the deposit, it was understandable as we were given permission to bring our dogs and were assured it would only be used for "damages" to the house. While we were staying at the house, a cleaning crew showed up and told us that we had missed checkout and needed to pack up and leave. A quick phone call to the owner solved the issue but again, a communication breakdown. Lastly, we picked up after ourselves and even brought our own cleaning supplies to make sure the house was in good condition when we left. More than a week goes by, and all of a sudden the entire security deposit was withdrawn from my bank account (as in several thousand dollars) without warning or explanation. After numerous emails and phone calls to the owner, I was informed that I was being charged $50 for cleaning expenses due to dog hair (again, understandable yet annoying as we were given permission to bring our dogs). I was assured that a check was being mailed to me with the rest of my deposit, but it was quite a shock to discover on my own without any warning. This final breakdown in communication ensured that my group would not be staying in this place again. It's a shame because we had a lovely time.

This is a well-kept, comfortably furnished vacation home, warm and welcoming, in a quiet and friendly neighborhood.

There were 11 of us including a two-month old infant, a 3 year old toddler and a nine year old. There was room to go off by oneself when that was desirable and plenty of room to gather for meals, board games or just sitting around and catching up.

It was a short walk to the beach where we saw the dolphins going by almost daily, and an equally short distance to the center of town with the attendant boardwalk diversions.

Rehoboth is a lovely family-oriented beach town with a number of excellent restaurants and a weekly farmer's market where one can purchase fresh fruits and veetables and even gelato!

The play house in the peaceful and spacious back yard was perfect for the interminable Monopoly game that was a highlight of the one rainy day we encountered.

The owner goes out of her way to ensure a pleasant and comfortable visit. All in all an excellent value and a memorable vacation rental.

Charming Home

This house was fabulous. This house is great for a large group. We went for a girls' weekend so having the 5 full bathrooms couldn't be better. The house is very well maintained and very clean and the beds are comfortable. The owners were very helpful and respond to all questions immediately. The hot tub is really wonderful and bigger than it looks in the pictures. It's a great house for off season with the amenities like the hot tub, firepit and fireplace. The location is great also. Sitting on the top porch for morning coffee with a view of the lake was so nice too. I just can't say enough great things about this house and highly recommend it.

Lovely home away from home at the beach!

We had a wonderful week at the Crane beach house, with beach time every afternoon, and fun times at the outlet malls in the mornings. We had dinner at A Taste of Italy in Lewes one night, their homemade mozarella is fabulous! The home is beautiful with sweet antique touches here and there, and very comfortable for 3 couples in bedrooms with private bathrooms on the first floor, and upstairs one room with twin and trundle for our teen son, and one room with private bathroom and 1 twin and a full sized bed under another twin bunk for our 3 girl cousins, and the hallway/staircase room with a bathroom and two full sized beds arranged like a bunk bed for our 2 boy cousins. Grandma and Grandpa took the trundle room when a fourth couple joined us the last two days, and my teen son slept on the couch in the game room/carriage house which was fun for him. The hot tub with waterfall was fun for the kids, and don't forget the mosquito spray! We grilled two nights and enjoyed the hammock as well. Our dogs loved the fenced back yard, and the screened porches were perfect for sitting out on the cooler evenings. We fit 13 in the dining room with 10 around the table, and 2 at the bar, and 1 on an occasional table. The beach is a short 10 minute walk, 5 minute bike ride, or 2 min. drive if you just want to drop off your stuff. If you want to park either at the beach or beach house, you will need to purchase a parking pass, the house has two driveway parking spaces, so we purchased two parking passes for the other two cars we had there. Parking passes were $13/day. Much fun, laughter and love! We will be back to Rehoboth for certain!
