Overview

Dewey Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 11)

This is a wonderful beach block cottage so close to the beach it is easy to slip back mid day to get a drink for the beach! Take your coffee down in the morning and watch the porpoise in the ocean. Take the kids down after dinner to fly a kite. The beach is so close that you can frequent it easily and zip back to the cottage for a snack.

This is our family’s beach house & we rent out to a few families throughout the summer (when we do not use it). It is perfect for a large family, 2 families or a family traveling with extended family. The house sleeps 11. The owner lives in Rehoboth Beach & the house is well-maintained. We rent to mature, responsible adults only!! No party rentals!

Beat the traffic!!! The rental is available weekly (7 nights), Sunday-Sunday. Sat to Sat rentals mean you are stuck in traffic coming and going as almost all rentals in this area start and end on Sat.

The house has 5 bedrooms and 2.5 baths plus an enclosed outside shower. There is parking for 4 vehicles. If you have smaller vehicles, you may be able to fit an additional fifth car in the garage and a sixth car in the back of the house. When in doubt, parking permits can be purchased from the Town Hall. There is a Jolly Trolly stop at the end of the street that will take you right to Rehoboth.

Calendar is kept up-to-date; can check availability on VBRO.

About Marcy Kmetz

We have many years of Dewey Beach Memories. Dave Vaughn (now in his late 70's) went to Dewey Beach as a teenager. He married Margo Vaughn in 1956; Margo had been to Dewey Beach every summer since she was a baby. Dave and Margo took their 7 kids to Dewey Beach every summer until they left the house. Dave and Margo retired to Rehoboth Beach in the 1990's but kept the beach house for their kids to use. Here is a picture of Dave & Margo, their 7 kids and their 17 grandchildren.

Marcy Kmetz purchased this house in 1965

Why Marcy Kmetz chose Dewey Beach

Because Dewey Beach doesn't have high-rises, the beaches are not as crowded as neighboring beaches. There are great activities and restaurants in walking distance. Dewey Beach offers family activities during the week such as bonfires and movies on the beach.

What makes this house unique

The enclosed outside shower is a great treat! Walkable to many activities: restaurants, convenience stores, Dewey Beach bonfire, Dewey Beach movie on the beach, trolly stop to Rehoboth, etc.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5
This house was perfect for our family vacation. Just a short distance to the beach and the heart of Dewey. Also a short Jolley Trolley ride to Rehobeth Boardwalk. The owners have thought of everything when furnishing this house. The covered porch was a godsend when the younger folks took over the main tv area. Would love to rent again.

A Spring Weekend at the Beach

  • 5 of 5
This beach house was perfect for a get-away weekend for friends! We were on the beach block and were within walking distance to many Mom & Pop shops and restaurants in Dewey as well as walking distance from Rehoboth Bay. We were also able to go up to the Tanger Outlets that were just a few miles up the road.

The house had some older features but the bathrooms were just updated with new everything, and we especially liked the newly tiled floors and new vanities. The house was very clean and tastefully decorated. There was plenty of space for us to each have our own beds (and own parking spaces) and the back, screened in, porch was perfect for enjoying the ocean breeze with our evening card games.

The attatched outdoor shower was convenient for rinsing off the sand and helped us keep the sand out of the house. We also enjoyed a BBQ with my family who live in the area that we were able to prepare on the back patio (which conveniently doubles as an extra parking spot or two in a pinch).

We were able to easily walk and drive down to the boardwalk to enjoy the shops and activities there (the Funland has good rides for children and adults), and the walk was only a couple of miles each direction (though I'd suggest driving with small children).

We enjoyed several restaurants in the area including Grotto's Pizza which is walkable and an awesome sandwich shop (Nick's) Just a block south of the house! On the same block, just a stones throw from the front door there's also a wonderful salad place for those that like their veggies! And there were several little surf shops that had pleanty of whatever you might need for the waves and the sun.

An activity we enjoyed was getting a permit for a bonfire on the beach! We had a ton of fun with s'mores and the sand and surf! It was really easy to get the permit at the Dewey Beach town hall (everything is in cash though) and you end up paying less than $20 after you get your deposit back (which you have to go back for in person).

We had a great weekend and I am glad we chose this house because it was so centrally located and was very reasonably priced for it's location! I would definatly come back and I have recommend it to all of my family member and friends!
