Ann Acres House Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 4 Adults & Dogs Are Welcome

Our place is a comfortable child and dog friendly beach house that sleeps a maximum of 4 adults and 2 children in 3 bedrooms. There are 2 bathrooms (plus outside shower), a loft den that looks over a two-story living room, a full kitchen, washer/dryer, AC window units, a screened-in porch that runs the length of the back of the house, and a large unfenced back yard. We have wireless internet, basic cable, a flat-screen TV, and blue-ray DVD player. No phone service. The house is stocked with lots of games. We have 3 dogs of our own and most of our renters also have at least one dog, so the place is clean but not pristine. We are 3 blocks to Dewey Beach and a 5 minute walk into Dewey itself. Please check the availability calendar on this site (under the 'Availability' tab at the top of the page) before inquiring; we always keep the calendar up-to-date. Rentals run from Friday at 5:00 pm to the following Friday at 12:00 noon. Minimum rental 1 week.

Dewey Beach: The beach itself is known for being clean and child friendly. Dogs are welcome on the beach any time of day in the off-season and before 9:30 am and after 5:30 pm in the summer. We are within reasonable walking distance of the restaurants and clubs in Dewey, but the house itself is in a more residential area known as Ann Acres. The house is located at the end of a one-block long dead-end street so there is no through-traffic. We are a 3-block walk to the beach, there is a light near the end of our street to cross Route 1.

The Eastern Shore: The surrounding area includes great outlet shopping, excellent restaurants, historic beach towns (Rehoboth and Lewis, and Cape May NJ by ferry), beautiful beach and pond areas (Henlopen State Park), fun beach boardwalks, and good movie theaters.

A good place for a few days

  • 4 of 5

Four of us and a dog had PLENTY of room in this great location. Communication with the owner was wonderful, and we got in without a hitch. The house is located off route one on a VERY quiet street, which was lovely, and still in walking distance to a fruit market across the road and downtown dewey (15 minutes!). The AC worked perfectly too. The house is a bit old, and feels it. It was quite a bit musty when we walked in, but the AC and open windows took care of that within the hour. As requested, we brought our own sheets and towels and were happy we did so, as the blankets provided could use a good wash, but the space itself was perfect for a few days away. There was also a great lounge upstairs, letting everyone have their own space if they needed it!

Thank you for wonderful hospitality.

The property is comfortable and lived-in in a very relaxed way. Well appointed kitchen, dog friendly, just across from great fruit stand, nice screened porch. AC keeps it cool.

My family and I had a terrific week at the beach, while staying at this conveniently located home. Our two small dogs were welcome to stay too! We look forward to renting this beach house again!

Wonderful, quiet, relaxing, family stay.

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our week. Everything is clean, well-maintained and functional. Fully stocked kitchen means you don't have to order or eat out. Beach is three short blocks away. Location on dead-end street is quiet and Rt. 1 traffic can not be heard. Two full bathrooms, washer & dryer, dishwasher, TV w. Netflix access, screened back porch. Excellent, prompt communication from the owner. Recommended for families with dogs looking for a peaceful spot to unwind.

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We all loved this place! Really comfy beds, spacious, clean and everything you'd want in a beach house. The best part is the screen porch, great place to hang out. Great outdoor shower too. Only problem was that our vacation was too short, hope to be back there soon!

Great dog-friendly house, close to beach

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, our border collie and a couple of friends stayed here for a week in early August and couldn't have been happier. The house was clean, well-appointed and had a nice yard for our dog. The screened-in porch was wonderful for meals and as a refuge when it was raining. The block was very quiet so spending time outside was relaxing. The beach is just about a half-mile away, which is an easy walk from the house. Overall, we had a great time and would definitely stay here again. Thanks, Binny and Maya!
