About the property

Condo, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This property has undergone a major refurbishment in the recent past and this year I replaced the sofa, loveseat, and living area chairs. I also replaced the last remnants of carpeting in the master and 2nd bedroom with wood laminate. Previously carpeting in the loft and main mid floor was replaced with hardwood flooring. Tile replaced the carpet in the back bedroom that leads to the back porch. Four new twin beds have been placed in the loft and small back bedroom. A queen bed was removed from the master bedroom and two new full beds were placed in the master bedroom. New lighting has been added to each downstairs bedroom. The unit now accomodates 10 people in beds.

The kitchen was refurbished with new wood cabinet doors, a new granite countertop, new sink and faucet. A soap dispenser and water filter were added to the sink. The appliances have been upgraded with a range/oven, Dishwasher, and new refrigerator this year (2016).,

The location is at the end of the street from the Bottle and Cork nightclub and two blocks from the Starboard Bar. It is short walk to everything Dewey Beach offers. And it is one and a half block to the Ocean; the bay and sunsets are viewable off any of the three decks in the front of the unit.

There are two dedicated parking spots in front of the unit, an outside shower and a porch off the back bedroom provides a cool spot for relaxing after the beach sun. The unit is available for partial weeks, weekends, and weekly rentals. Also the unit is not available year round. Rental season is 17 April to 18 October 2015 and I usually winterize the property in late October or early November.

The unit will have a wifi system in it during the season. A phone is no longer provided, since most folks are using cells and telemarketers are a nuisance to those on vacation. A new 42 inch LCD TV has been wall mounted on the Main deck and new flat screen TVs are located in on each floor. There are pictures on the web site to more accurately reflect the recent upgrades. A new dining room table and 8 new chairs were acquired three years ago.

About Fred W Henry Jr

I have owned property in Dewey Beach since 1976. The property provided a weekend escape from the grind of very demanding career in the CIA. In 1995, I upgraded my property investment to the current unit. Not sure where I might end up after I retired, I wanted a place that I could live in for extended periods when I was not traveling. As it turned out, I retired and built a new home two miles from the beach property. I maintain the beach property as an investment for my family and rent it to others who enjoy the beach and this rather unique location.

Fred W Henry Jr purchased this condo in 1995

Why Fred W Henry Jr chose Dewey Beach

This is the best beach area closest to the metro areas of Washington, DC, Baltimore and Philidelphia. I discovered this in 1976 when invited by friends to stay at a place they owned in Dewey Beach. I enjoyed the environment, restaurants, and activity so much that I bought a condo in the same location two weeks later. I appreciate what we have here so much that I decided to retire here.

What makes this condo unique

I do not stay at my property anymore. I live here. However, on occasion, I will go to the property with friends after we pick up a cooked lobster dinner at the super market, have cocktails and enjoy the most glorious sunsets off the mid deck. What is unique about the propery is during the summer, you do not need a car. There are great restaurants, bars and night clubs within short walking distance. And you walk one and a half block to get on the best beach in the proximity of three metro areas. You can fish, play golf, shop at the outlets on rainy days, or just sun yourself at the ocean or on the decks at the unit. There are night clubs with major bands in the evening and all day entertainment at many bars/restaurants. You can unwind with a book or engage to your hearts content. It is all here for you to enjoy.

I do not provide linens and towels. However, I have found a Rental Service in the area that provides a multitude of services, including providing linens and towels. They are known as The Grand Rental Station and located within 2 miles of my beach property. Their telephone number is 302-227-7368. They are available on line at For an additional fee they will deliver and pickup the linens they provide. Orders can be placed on line based on what you need. This takes me out of the laundry business and provides a viable option for those who find it inconvenient to bring their own linens and towels. The bedding configuration at my property is 3 Double beds and 4 twin beds.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

A group of 8 girls stayed here for a bachelorette party. It was the perfect location!! We were able to walk (mostly very short walks- 30 second to bottle & cork and 3 minutes to Starboard) to restaurants, the beach, and all of the most popular night life in Dewey!

The owner was a major reason for such a great stay. He was helpful with booking, answering questions leading up to the trip, meeting us at the place to give us an overview, and making sure we had a great time. He is accommodating and generous and we would definitely rent from him again!

There is honestly not one item I was unhappy with as a renter! Thank you for a great time and we will be renting this awesome place again!

Great trip and location.

  • 5 of 5

Dad took 5 teenagers to the beach for a 3 night stay (two 13 yr old, two 17 yr old, and a 21 yr old) and all of us had fun. Perfect location for easy beach access. Fred is terrific meeting you on arrival and departure to make sure everything is good with the house. The house is perfect size for our adventure and we'd certainly come back.

Great girls' weekend in Dewey!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here July 28 - 3, 2016 for a girls' weekend and it was our first time ever visiting Dewey Beach. Fred was extremely easy to work with and got back to me quickly with answers to all of my questions. The listing and photos were very detailed and accurate. It was 8 people that stayed over in my group, but the condo can easily sleep 10 or even 11 with the couch and there was room if you wanted to bring a blow up bed. The 3 bathrooms worked well for our group of ladies. Fred was there when I arrived on Thursday and showed me the place. It was very nice, clean and spacious. We loved the balconies on each level. It was a great location too - walkable to all of the beach, restaurants and bars and only a short drive to Rehobeth. It comes with two convenient parking spaces right in front of the condo and then I purchased additional parking passes for my friends and they found parking right on the same street. I much preferred staying here instead of a hotel. All us girls were able to sit together at the table for a few meals and hang out in the living room with more than enough room. Fred recommended Jimmy's Grille to us (the one in Rehobeth, not the one at the end of the street) and it was the best meal we had all weekend! I hope to come back another summer! This was my first time using Home Away and I am very happy with our experience. I highly recommend this property.

Additional information about rental rates

Refundable damage deposit $500

Notwithstanding what is depicted or quoted, a 3 night minimum period that begins Thursday night or Friday night is considered the weekend. I suggest you call or email for a much better definition of the rates. Mid week rates and Shoulder season rates are negotiable and are usually about 1/2 the weekend rate. Also Payments for any booking are not required until 1 Jan on the year of the rental. I do not rent to persons under the age of 21 without a parents signature on the contract and special terms and conditions are required for contracts for graduating seniors. A sliding scale of $300 to $750 is used to determine the amount of the refundable security deposit for quests. The most common amount is $500.
