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 Country Club Estates

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 for big families!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10, 6 adults and 4 children, had a great stay at this house. The house was clean, comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked with everything you need. The beach is a 15 minute walk down quiet, residential streets - 20 minutes with youngsters. The owner provides a beach cart, 2 beach chairs, a small umbrella and plenty of beach toys for the kids. The outdoor shower definitely comes in handy for washing sandy kids. The fenced in yard is great for both kids and pets. Highly recommend!

Owner's Response: So glad you had a great time. I do try to provide a well-stocked kitchen. I am a little surprised that only two beach chairs remain as I started the season with around 10, but, alas, that is why I cannot guarantee what will be there for beach use. We hope to host you again.

Second Home

  • 5 of 5

We are coming up on over a decade of renting this home during the summer. It is always in excellent condition. Plenty of room. My parents have always joined us and really like having their own space. Just far enough from the beach for some peace and quiet but close enough to get to the beach and broad walk in minutes.

Owner's Response: I really appreciate having you as guests all these years. It is comforting to know that you'll check on things and let me know when there is something needed to make things better for other guests. I am glad the house has been good for you and your family. Here's to another 10 years!

Great Rehoboth vacation rental for multiple families!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home from June 24-July 1 2017 and had a wonderful vacation. We had a group of 3 families and this home was a great size for us. The main living area is nice and open for large groups to eat/hang out. The enclosed patio was another nice place to relax and park all of our beach gear. We did not use our car most of the week because the beach, boardwalk, and town area were a 10-15 minute walk (with young children). There is a really nice park about a 5 minute walk away with shade and a lake full of turtles that all the children enjoyed. We only had a minor issue with a shower knob, which the owner responded to very quickly. The outdoor shower was great to have to clean off sandy kiddos after a day at the beach.

Everything promised and more!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Karen for letting us spend the long weekend in your home. It was the perfect location, layout and easy, relaxing get away I hoped for. This is a lovely, well kept home with everything we needed, blocks to anywhere, but quiet, serene and felt like home :) I'll be back next year for sure.

Owner's Response: John - thank you for the kind words. you were one of the best. my cleaning service asked if they were supposed to clean because you left things so nice. I am glad you found it comfortable. Our goal is to equip the house well so our guests are comfortable staying in or going out. We look forward to hosting you again in the future!
