LONE STAR COTTAGE, LESS THAN TWO BLOCKS FROM THE BEACH

Dewey Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Welcome to Lone Star Cottage, the star of the beach. Located only a block from the ocean at 102 Houston St. Dewey Beach, where you can experience the roar of the crashing waves and drag your toes through the warm and soothing sand. **HS SENIOR WEEK BOOKINGS MAY BE AVAILABLE WITH ADDITIONAL FEES & TERMS. **

You have the whole house, all on one floor with no stairs. The fully-fenced yard has a fire pit for toasting s'mores, and a wrap-around deck with a picnic table and plenty of seating. Inside you'll find three bedrooms with four beds and a pull-out couch -- enough room to sleep eight! The driveway in front has space for two cars, no parking permits needed.

Guests must bring their own linens, towels and paper products. The beds have pillows, comforters, and mattress pads, and there are kitchen towels provided. Don't forget your beach towels!

Dewey Beach is a natural sandbar community that boasts an ocean on one side of the street and a bay on the other.Away from the water, you have easy access to all the exciting attractions in the Town of Dewey Beach. Just a short stroll brings you to the Rusty Rudder, Starboard, Bottle & Cork and other hot spots. Or, catch the Jolly Trolley at the corner and ride to the boardwalk at Rehoboth Beach. Shop the antique stores or the outlets along Route 1.

Worst vacation rental ever!

  • 1 of 5
We were completely shocked when we pulled up to the "Lone Star Cottage." Upon stepping onto the porch, we found cigarette butts in the planters and littered about. Weeds were growing rampant through the wood slats of the deck. When we entered the house, it reeked of smoke and we found more cigarette butts on the floor. When we opened the freezer to put our food in, we found old food, a large spill of something orange and sticky, and mold. There were no cleaning supplies in sight, other than an old broken mop. Since it was getting late, I immediately went to the store to purchase cleaning supplies. We simply could not stay in a house of this condition. My husband stayed behind and immediately contacted Jeremy from iTrip. He was not able to reach him but left a message. When he called back he said the cleaners were "on the way over right now." Meanwhile I returned to the cottage with a car full of cleaning supplies, I spent two hours cleaning up the butts, mopping the floor, bleaching the inside of the fridge, bleaching the sink, and bleaching the bathroom shower/tiles. We needed candles and Febreeze to even make a dent in the smoky-smell. It was filthy. Finally after all this I had to stop cleaning so I could put my 5 year old to bed. We had brought along our own sheets, but when I pulled out the blanket from the closet, it has cigarette burns on it. It was sort of like staying in a frat house. Everything was smelly, dirty, sticky, broken, and just nasty in general. The cleaners who were supposedly on their way over, NEVER SHOWED UP. When we called Jeremy again to complain we were finally offered to have "new cleaners" come by on WEDNESDAY. At this point our "vacation" was half over and I had already bought all the supplies and scrubbed/cleaned/bleached the house myself, so there was no point! We tried to make the best of it and spent as much time outside of the home as possible.

Owner's Response: There is no way that the description of the condition of the home could be true since it was cleaned the same day as they checked in. In fact, both the cleaner and a licensed handyman were in the home not long before they checked in. Both of them denied smelling cigarette smoke in the home. The standard cleaning had taken place including emptying and cleaning of the fridge. We had no reports of any cigarette burns in the blankets and this is the first I've heard of them. The guest was offered an additional cleaning as well as their money back on the cleaning fee. They declined the extra cleaning. The tub has been recaulked. It had been caulked prior to the season starting.

The home has a stellar record that speaks for itself. I'm sorry the guest had such a poor experience. Subsequent guests have been very pleased.

We have stayed at Lone Star Cottage for three years now, and find it very comfortable. Location is terrific, just a block from the beach, and close to restaurants.The owner is easy to contact, if there is ever a problem.

Wonderful time in Dewey Beach!

  • 4 of 5
We had a great time at the Lone Star Cottage in Dewey Beach! It was very clean, walking distance to everything, including the beach, and had all the amenities we needed. Our only small complaint was that the central air wasn't working quite as well as we would have liked. But that was just a minor issue and we were able to deal with it. I would definitely recommend staying here!

Cute Little House

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I had a delightful time in this house. It was a block from the beach. Although on a main street, it still felt secluded because of the privacy fence. The yard had sunny and shady spots. It was just the 2 of us so we really didn't need 3 bedrooms but the extra space was nice. Would have loved a king size bed (we are spoiled). We would definitely staty here again. If you don't like the college bar scene, stay away from downtown Dewey on Saturday after 6 pm!

Wonderful place in Dewey

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay here. Ellen was wonderful and makes the home easy to rent. The house has been remodeled and looks great with a clean beach decor. One of the best features of renting this house was that when we were ready to leave we didn't have to clean the home, a cleaning fee was included in our renting rate and certainly made leaving a little easier! The beach is a short block away and you can easily walk or bike to any other restaurants/stores in Dewey. The home does sit along route 1 but the privacy fence keeps some noise out and makes it seem like you are on a back street. If you are looking for a place to rent while at the beach, choose this one.

Great Getaway

  • 4 of 5
This property was very charming. It was comfortable for six adults. The open floor plan made it nice to socialize while preparing meals. We enjoyed relaxing by the fire outside in the evenings. We took our bicyles and enjoyed riding to Rehobeth and nearby neighborhoods admiring the homes. This property is close to restaurants and the beach. It was everything we had expected. Would definitely recommend it to friends and family.
