South Rehoboth House Rental Photos and Description

7 bedrooms, 5-full baths plus 2 1/2 baths; sleeps 16 w/hot tub

At 'SeaHorse Crossing', you’ll enjoy listening to the ocean from your front porch just steps to the beach, the renowned Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk, beautiful and quaint Silver Lake and be just minutes away from plenty of shopping, restaurant choices, and activities for the whole family. With 7 total bedrooms (5 in the Main house and 2 additional in the 2-story detached cottage) and bathrooms galore, this delightful multi-million dollar home sleeps 16+! Enjoy the beautiful outdoor landscaping + outdoor cooking area, and a Hot Tub to soak away under the stars!

Originally built in the 1940’s, the home was painstakingly renovated in 2005...and it shows like a modern dream home. Perfect for family vacations, a summer retreat, cozy family reunions or to host your wedding entourage when you “take the plunge” in Rehoboth Beach, this is your delightful home away from home.

Located 1 block from the beach.


The property can accommodate parking for two cars off-street, plus plenty of on-street parking. During the Summer Season (ie Memorial Day - Labor Day) we provide TWO City parking passes for additional on-street parking for your 3rd and 4th vehicle. Passes for additional vehicles may be obtained directly from the City of Rehoboth for the duration of your visit. Contact the City of Rehoboth for more details.

About The Smith Family

Originally from the Washington, DC area, our family has enjoyed vacationing at the DelMarVa beaches over the years, and chose Rehoboth for its proximity to several major metro areas ... a logical gathering place for our family reunions and beach vacations. Our home is nicely situated in a quiet residential section of South Rehoboth, just a block from the beach and Silver Lake, and we enjoy getting away to the peace and tranquility it affords. We are confident you will enjoy it as well!

The Smith Family purchased this house in 2007

Why The Smith Family chose Delaware

Rehoboth Beach is the 'Nation's Summer Capital', conveniently located in Southern Delaware approximately 2.5 hours from the major metropolitan areas of Washington, DC, Baltimore and Annapolis, MD and Philadelphia, PA. We're also just 15 minutes from the Cape May-Lewes ferry terminal, with easy access to the New Jersey shore.

Choir Retreat Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our church choir and their families retreated to Rehoboth for a weekend of fellowship and singing in September. The house was perfect for our needs. Large, comfortable, well-appointed and well-maintained in a quiet residential area of the town. Added plusses were the hot tub, proximity to the beach and restaurants, a large kitchen and eating area and a large screened front porch. Highly recommended for families!

Rehoboth Return

  • 5 of 5

Another excellent stay for the extended family! One of our favorite things about the house is we can park the car in the driveway and walk or ride our bikes wherever we want to go- the kids can go down to the boardwalk for Kohrs Brothers ice cream as we adults head to the bar for some oysters and a glass of beer. And in the evening we all gather on the porch to play a game. Our fourth visit to Seahorse Crossing did not disappoint!

Perfect getaway for large families!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at Seahorse Crossing! With kids outnumbering the adults this home was perfect for us. Plenty of bedrooms for all, and the cottage was a plus for the early risers to stay in! Location cannot be beat, neighborhood was quiet and peaceful. The evening with Chef Gary was so relaxing, and the food was amazing! We'll be returning next year and hopefully many more to come.

A Wonderful September Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience at Sea Horse Crossing. Everything was even nicer than I expected. One of the nicest aspects of the property is the many different and lovely seating areas. Our party included teens,young children and adults. The many different seating venues allowed everyone to be together and apart at the the same time. The owner was very helpful and always responsive to my calls and e-mails. Rehoboth Beach is one of the nicest beaches on the East coast. It has fabulous restaurants and shops which are all within walking distance of Sea Horse Crossing. We parked our car when we arrived and didn't use it again until we left. I wholeheartedly recommend staying at Sea Horse Crossing.

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home & guest cottage-everything new and in pristine condition from top to bottom, we felt like we were staying in a nice hotel. We loved the hot tub, large updated kitchen, washer/dryer, screened in porch and large master bedroom suite was a plus. Proximity to boardwalk and beach was excellent, 1.5 blocks. Only short walk to Rehoboth Ave/shops/etc. We had 15 people and there was plenty of room for everyone. Everyone is already asking me if we can book now for next Labor Day weekend! I hope to try the Private Dining experience during our next stay. And thank you to the owners for the wonderful surprise on the porch when we arrived! A very nice touch. I would highly recommend this beach house.

Magical beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

A magical property for an extended family reunion. Kitchen is better equipped than my own at home! House is much bigger than it looks from the outside. Bedrooms are very nice. Landscaping creates a nice sense of privacy. Owner was extremely helpful when he had questions. And the private chef is an experience not to be missed!
