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.

Good place to stay in Dewey

  • 5 of 5

Went here with 8 other guys for a fun weekend in Dewey. Fred (the owner) was very friendly and responsive. When someone parked in our spot, he acted quickly to make sure we got our spot back.

House is nicely laid out and has some nice decks that allow you to just relax with a drink. House was quite clean and had plenty of room for my big group.

Would definitely stay again!

Owner's Response: Thanks Andrew for the review. I am always glad to receive positive reviews and yours sure was. Glad everything went well for your stay. Parking is always a problem in Dewey and has gotten worse since the town installed more confusing signage. We have alerted the town and we are working on more signage for our units. So out of the issue will come a positive result. Come back when you can. You did a great job of clean up and that is always appreciated. Fred

Plenty of room for a large group

  • 4 of 5

Needs some updating, mostly cosmetic. Better lighting in rooms. Loved having central air. Washer/dryer a plus. Many supplies were there: detergent, garbage bags, spices, napkins, plastic silverware, etc. View of the bay from all decks. Beach a block and 1/2 from unit. We enjoyed going to Rehoboth for dinner, shopping, boardwalk, but glad we stayed in Dewey as it was less crowded and much quieter. Would definitely rent again! Thanks Fred 😀

Owner's Response: Thank you Nancy for your review. I appreciate your honest feedback and comments. I have been focused on many infrastructure items, like the repair of the HVAC, plumbing issues outside and inside, replacement of most of the appliances and the major replacement of the outside siding on all of the 8 units during this past year. It follows that I need to retarget some improvements to the interior this year. And again, thank you for the fantastic cleanup at departure. Fred

Perfect size, location & helpful owner nearby

  • 5 of 5

I had a group of girls down for 5 nights and the condo was perfect for the 10 of us. Parking out front was handy (2 spots) and there's a spot for the key outside with a code... so you don't have to worry about carrying a key around or losing it. The owner, Fred, called and checked in on us (I'm sure with a polite no thank you he would let you be, but I found it very sweet) and gave us suggestions for the rainy days we were there. I would absolutely rent this place again, and I absolutely recommend it. Great speakers, too!

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.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

Please ask the owner or check their rental agreement when booking the property.
