*****************************************

We are off Saulsbury Street, mid-ocean block, south side, nestled among other cottages 5 lots from the beach. From our house to the sand is 150 yards. On quiet nights you can hear the ocean from the bedroom windows.

Two bedrooms include one with a platform full size double bed (storage space underneath) and one with a bunk bed combination (full size double on the bottom and twin on the top). Living room sofa is a queen-size sleeper.

Living room/dining room kitchen is a wonderful open space plan with partial cathedral ceiling and skylights. Master bedroom also has a skylight.

Dewey Beach occupancy laws allow 2 persons per bedroom plus 2 in a living area on a sleep sofa, making a maximum occupancy of 6 for our house. However, our cottage/small house is most comfortable for up to 4 adults or a family of up to 6 with children. Seating inside is a 3 seat sofa plus 8 dining chairs.

It is about a mile to the town of Rehoboth, which has many attractions including the Boardwalk and Funland for kids. The Jolley Trolley runs every 10-15 minutes if the walk is too far. Fast food, casual and formal restaurants, as well as shops and activities, are available within steps in Dewey Beach.

We have vacationed here since we bought the house in 1995 as a childless couple waiting to adopt, and have precious and priceless memories of weekends and summer weeks here as our family expanded with two daughters from Russia (now 21 and 17), and a daughter and grandchildren from Mexico (21, 5 and 2).

Over the years we have been blessed to share our vacation home with family, friends and tenants who have made memories of their own, and shared some with us through notes, cards and photos.

Our goal is to provide you with a wonderful vacation experience like we had in Rehoboth/Dewey Beach as children: a basic beach cottage with the ocean only steps away, and a place where kids can be kids and adults can relax and not be concerned about sand and wet suits.

We are an international and special needs adoptive family. Mom (Bonnie) is a psychologist; Dad (Keith) is now our 'stay-home dad' after 8 years doing mercy ministry among the poor in Juarez, Mexico. Russian-born daughters, adopted and brought home in March 1995, are Amy Oksana (21) and Jennifer Marina (17) . Mexican-born daughter, brought home after 7 very long years of waiting, is Yajaira Margarita (21). Grandchildren Kimberly Diana (5)and Kevin Michael (2) also bless our home.

Keith V. Bird purchased this cottage in 1995

Bonnie had vacationed at the MD/DE shore from the time she was 3 years old, and Keith from about age 10. We rented for many years but had kept our eye on these little cottages. When one came on the market at the time we had a small inheritance from Keith's dad's estate, we were able to realize our lifetime dream of a little cottage at the ocean. Our Russian daughters came home that spring, and 'making memories' at the beach in all seasons has been a wonderful part of our family life.

It is SO close to the beach, so easy to go back if you forgot something, to go to the bathroom (or take a potty training child back quickly!) Our little homeowners group of 9 all get along well and those who rent have had nice tenants as long as we've owned. We love having our little cottage where we can kick back, be casual and relax.

Renting this house was seamless as opposed to the headache of renting with some of the other places in Dewey. Went for Labor Day Weekend and had a great time. The house is in a prime location and has anything you could ever want. All appliances work well and house is kept clean. Already planning my trip to stay here again next summer.

My sisters and I planned a very last minute trip to this Dewey beach house and it couldn't have been more perfect. It's a laid back little spot, perfect for crashing after hours at the beach and local restaurants. Affordable with a GREAT location (feet away from beach) plus parking. Also, Keith & family go above and beyond to make sure your comfortable and taken care of. As mentioned, we planned our trip very last minute and Keith was very helpful, flexible, attentive, and patient with the details. I personally can't wait to go back!

Great Location!

My husband and I stayed here with another couple (who had never experienced Dewey) and we had such a great time. The location of the home is absolutely perfect, we walked everywhere! The house had everything we needed (pans, plates, tupperware, toaster, etc). Being SO close to the beach made it convenient for bathroom and lunch breaks. Very quiet at night. Having our own parking spot off the street was a key feature too.

Great Beach Cottage

I came to Dewey with some friends for Memorial Day Weekend, and was pleasantly surprised to see this beach cottage. It was clean, large enough in size for our small group, and conveniently located only a block from the Starboard and less than a block from the beach. Keith made sure that everything was set prior to our arrival, and he was easy to reach via email or telephone to answer any questions. Perfect house for a small group or couple with children.
