This property has undergone a major refurbishment in the last three years. Carpeting in the loft and main mid floor has been replaced with hardwood flooring. Tile has replaced the carpet in the back bedroom that leads to the back porch. Four new twin beds have been placed in the loft and small back bedroom. A queen bed was removed from the master bedroom and two new full beds were placed in the master bedroom. New lighting has been added to each downstairs bedroom. The unit now accomodates 10 people in beds.
Last year the kitchen was refurbished with new wood cabinet doors, a new granite countertop, new sink and faucet. A soap dispenser and water filter were added to the sink.
The location is at the end of the street from the Bottle and Cork nightclub and two blocks from the Starboard Bar. It is short walk to everything Dewey Beach offers. And it is one and a half block to the Ocean; the bay and sunsets are viewable off any of the three decks in the front of the unit.
There are two dedicated parking spots in front of the unit, an outside shower and a porch off the back bedroom provides a cool spot for relaxing after the beach sun. The unit is available for partial weeks, weekends, and weekly rentals. Also the unit is not available year round. Rental season is 15 April to 14 October 2013.
The unit will have a wifi system in it during the season. A phone is provided for local calls and the cable TV feed is from Comcast. A new 42 inch LCD TV has been wall mounted on the Main deck and new flat screen TVs are located in on each floor. There are pictures on the web site to more accurately reflect the recent upgrades. A new dining room table and 8 new chairs were added last year.

I have owned property in Dewey Beach since 1976. The property provided a weekend escape from the grind of very demanding career in the CIA. In 1995, I upgraded my property investment to the current unit. Not sure where I might end up after I retired, I wanted a place that I could live in for extended periods when I was not traveling. As it turned out, I retired and built a new home two miles from the beach property. I maintain the beach property as an investment for my family and rent it to others who enjoy the beach and this rather unique location.
This is the best beach area closest to the metro areas of Washington, DC, Baltimore and Philidelphia. I discovered this in 1976 when invited by friends to stay at a place they owned in Dewey Beach. I enjoyed the environment, restaurants, and activity so much that I bought a condo in the same location two weeks later. I appreciate what we have here so much that I decided to retire here.
I do not stay at my property anymore. I live here. However, on occasion, I will go to the property with friends after we pick up a cooked lobster dinner at the super market, have cocktails and enjoy the most glorious sunsets off the mid deck. What is unique about the propery is during the summer, you do not need a car. There are great restaurants, bars and night clubs within short walking distance. And you walk one and a half block to get on the best beach in the proximity of three metro areas. You can fish, play golf, shop at the outlets on rainy days, or just sun yourself at the ocean or on the decks at the unit. There are night clubs with major bands in the evening and all day entertainment at many bars/restaurants. You can unwind with a book or engage to your hearts content. It is all here for you to enjoy.
