Fantastic Family Vacation rental at Rehoboth!
We've vacationed in the Outer Banks a few times, but wanted something closer to home in the Northeast this year. We were two families - four parents, four kids (ages 6-9). It was our first time renting in Rehoboth, and we enjoyed the stay very much.
Best things: Location: the house is just around the corner from the beach, a two minute walk; and this section of beach (North Shores) was far less crowded than near the Rehoboth boardwalk. Easy to pop over to the beach and back, say, for lunch...or to go back over for a walk at night. The house is well kept (maybe aging a bit), but clean and nicely landscaped. It has lots of natural light, in a very nice neighborhood on a quiet street. A big yard for the kids to run around outside. A great big screened porch for meals and hanging out. The pool is a block away, and the staff there was always helpful. The owner was extremely accommodating, informative, responsive, and friendly.
We walked down to the Rehoboth boardwalk a few times in the evenings. It's about a mile walk on the beach, but our kids made it without a problem. Other highlights: there's music on the boardwalk almost every night, it seems. We also caught some crabs for fun in the harbor across the street from the pool. Rented a surrey bicycle (for eight!) on the boardwalk one morning. Cape Henlopen State Park is just up the road, and we also rented kayaks in Lewes, near the ferry terminal, for a morning of bay kayaking. Also had a few date nights, with a fantastic meal at "A-Muse" (highly recommended) and another at Saketumi.
A few things to keep in mind: Parking in town is a bit difficult. Bring tons of quarters (we got them at the arcades) for the meters. We wished the wall unit air conditioners were a bit quieter, and that the pool was open later than 5 in the evenings. Our daughter got bitten by green headed flies on the beach one day, and had a reaction, so bring some bug spray.
All that aside, this felt like a classic, old school beach vacation, one we were all sad to have come to an end. We'd eagerly rent here again!
