About Karen Howland

We have owned our beloved beach house for more than 15 years and have been Rehoboth Beach goers all our lives. Our goal has been to equip it and care for it as if we lived in it full-time. Keeping it maintained and comfortably furnished is important. We want our guests to feel at home.

Why Karen Howland chose Rehoboth Beach

We bought this property after many years of renting others in Rehoboth. Having stayed in many parts of Rehoboth, we particularly liked South Rehoboth. It has trees, but is not overly shady. It doesn't get any more convenient in terms of walking to all the amenities. And it hasn't been over built with McMansions that attract large noisy party groups. It is ideal for a nice relaxed beach visit.

What makes this house unique

Our house has some unique benefits that make it desirable over others. First, we are pretty much the only property that has been allowed to have a six foot privacy fence facing the frontage. Dinners and drinks on the patio do not endure the scrutiny of those strolling the neighborhood. Second - I believe we are also pretty much the only house that is all one level and does not require any steps to enter the property. Although not a main concern when we purchased the house, it has been a blessing as we and our family members have aged.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at this house and I know we will be back again. It was very comfortable for our family of 8 adults and 2 children plus 1 dog. The kitchen has everything you might need and plenty of plates/cups/silverware. The rooms are all a good size and we loved being able to eat our meals out on the patio. Our dog was very happy to sun himself on the patio and we didn't have to worry about him because of the fence. There were lots of beach toys and chairs for us to use, and we really appreciated the cart to haul all of the stuff. It's a short walk to the beach and boardwalk, and we even drove a few times and were able to find parking close to the beach and use the parking pass provided. Thanks for a wonderful week, and can't wait to book with you again!

Peaceful Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful stay we had, so spacious, we had our own suite away from the younger adults ( we are in our 70s) Easy walk to restaurants & beach. Enclosed by fencing, did not worry about our fur baby running off. Every detail was done with impeccable taste. Absolutely comfortable, will definitely recommend this hideaway to friends. All you need are your linens everything else is supplied.

Hidden Oasis was a pleasant surprise!

  • 5 of 5

This house has a great layout with an open floor plan in the communal area which opens to the nice stone patio which is lit at night by great patio lights. The layout of the bedrooms gave privacy when needed. House was clean and well maintained and the furnishings are comfortable. I loved the big dining table and well equipped kitchen was well

although I must admit we enjoyed the short walk to town most nights for dinner out at the many wonderful restaurants. The walk to the beach was pretty quick and it was no problem to drive down and drop off the old folks if they didn't want to walk. Next time we will bring bikes since they will be secure on the enclosed patio. Our old dog really enjoyed the enclosed patio and yard and it was so nice to be able to let her out without worrying about her escaping. Would highly recommend Hidden Oasis!

Amazing Experience!

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful, spacious, and had a wonderful enclosed porch that we regularly used for meal times. The hosts were quite responsive to any questions that we had. It was clean, well-maintained, and had all the basic necessities (cleaning supplies, etc).

We will definitely be back!

Really nice summer vacation.

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely well maintained home in a quiet section of town with easy beach access. Everything you need is in walking distance, and the supermarkets are nearby, so you don't have to deal with traffic. The kitchen was well equiped. Our 2 dogs were very happy they could come with us. Low key, lots of room, wifi, everyone wants to come back.

Our vacation house.

  • 4 of 5

We all enjoyed our vacation at this house. It was just as described and very clean and very comfortable! The outside patio was very nice and was very private because of the wooden fence, Everything was in good working order and well maintained. Short walk to the beach. I hope to rent it again next summer!! I would recommend this house to friends/family

We had a great family vacation!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed your vacation and the house. Our privacy fence around the patio is a treasure as the City no longer allows them, but we are "grandfathered." Please do come back again next summer. You will be welcomed!!
