Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Glenn,



We forgot to write in your guest book about our experience, this letter is our expressions of thanks.



We came to celebrate our friend's 50th wedding anniversary. When we walked in the door we knew right away this was the right choice.



Your home offers a friendly atmosphere, great location, comfortable beds and a gorgeous deck to take in all of the beautiful surroundings.



Glenn, you are a wonderful host. Your caring manner was obvious from the time we first spoke to the time that we were driving home, when you called about a camera being left behind. Joyfully, we discovered the camera was yours.



The weather you ordered could not have been better!!



Thanks for everything!! We will be back.

Truly a home away from home

  • 4 of 5
Glenn was a wonderful host. He met us at the door and was gracious and kind. His stocks his home with every convenience anyone could want. The house was beautiful and spotless. The only reason this rating has only 4stars is the beach itself. The water here is really too shallow to swim. Our dogs, however, loved it! For humans, the beach at Rehobath is close, so if you want a dip on the ocean, it's easy enough. It was all we expected and more

Breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5
We could have not picked a better home to have stayed in! The views were amazing and the home was spotless, So spotless that my 4 yr old son ran into the glass door thinking it was open! It was quite funny ; ) Rehoboth is just a short drive to shopping and the boardwalk, we look forward to returning! Thanks for everything Glenn!

Amazing views. Perfect remote getaway.

  • 5 of 5
My family had a wonderful time! The view and setting are gorgeous. Breathtaking water views. Cottage is very well designed - my wife and I especially enjoyed the cozy sitting area in the master suite. Glenn was an excellent host. Only caveat is that this isn't the best beach for swimming, and there isn't much in terms of restaurants and stores nearby. But we saw this as a positive, because you get a lot of privacy. Most days we were the only ones on the beach. Plus Rehoboth is only 30 mins away.

Walked in and instantly loved it!

  • 4 of 5
Just left yesterday, and miss the view already.
Every room was filled with sunlight. Everything was of great quality.... from the silverware to luxury linens and towels that are provided.
If you are looking for a get-a-way to bond with family without distractions, this is your place. The kids fished right off the beach (with a license) during the day and made s'mores by the fire at night.
Family game night never seemed to happen on other vacations because there was always something else to do. Not here.... it was truly a week of family time.
Memories of cooking together, to playing cards to relaxing in the hot tub...They are all priceless.
Thank you Glenn, for sharing your beach home with other families. We WILL be back!
Best regards,
-Karen & Dave Chance, Wilmington, Delaware

Beautiful house, great location

  • 5 of 5
As other reviewers have mentioned, the pictures do not do the house justice. It is beautiful, thoughtfully decorated and well maintained. The fresh flowers were a typical touch. The Geraniums even attracted a visit from a hummingbird (hummingbird visit not guaranteed).

"We'll appointed" does not do it justice. Whenever I needed anything, I generally found three. If you are like me, you read amenities lists with a jaundiced eye. You can suspend your disbelief here. Everything was of good quality and in good condition.

The views of sunrise and sunset are great. The beach is mostly empty and a short stroll down the path.

The area is great as well. This was our first visit here and we found plenty to do. I think we just scratched the surface.

There are nearly no commercial businesses within walking distance, so you'll probably want to bring in any items you need. The place is so well stocked though, you'll probably only need to bring perishable and personal items.

Immaculate, comfortable and peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5
Pet friendly vacation rentals have often been very disappointing...inferring that people with pets have lower standards. Upon arrival, we found this cottage to be immaculate with no trace of prior tenants with pets which meant that we could simply unpack and begin enjoying our vacation rather than spending the first couple of hours cleaning a rental so that we could spend our time there comfortably. The condition of the home is pristine, every amenity and comfort is addressed by the owner, the kitchen is a chef's dream, the setting is peaceful and scenic, and the area filled with places of interest and fine restaurants (Crabby Dicks in Rehobeth, Fat Tuna Grill in Ocean View, Medings in Milford and Cilantro in Rehobeth). The deck is large and comfortable with commanding views of the bay plus an immaculate hot tub...I am usually repulsed by hot tubs and think of them as a giant pot of germ soup, but this one was so pristine that I actually enjoyed several hours of being beaten up by the jets. This property exceeded the owner's description and our expectations. During our stay, the weather was less than cooperative with driving rain and 40 to 50 mph winds coming off of the bay for several days which caused a screen to detach from an upstairs window and a leak from the ceiling in the living room...the owner was so very gracious when we reported these casualties to his beautiful home and, despite the weather, we enjoyed every moment of our time whether out and about, putting together a puzzle at the dining table, cooking up a storm or just relaxing at the cottage. The layout of the cottage was perfect...our friend who just retired joined us for a few days and enjoyed the upstairs suite while we and the 2 dogs enjoyed the first floor (one of our dogs does not particularly like stairs)...the perfect combination of intimacy and privacy for all. I highly recommend this cottage for all but especially for those who enjoy traveling with their pets, as we do, and have been consistently disappointed with vacation rentals that are unclean and poorly furnished...as if pet owners and their pets are second class citizens undeserving of nice things. We have only 2 very minor suggestions...that there be more seating facing the television in the living room and that the drain in the first floor bathtub drain a bit more quickly. Clearly, the owner takes a great deal of pride in pleasing his guests and their pets, ensuring that their vacation experience is superb.
