About Laura Ritter

My family has owned this house for over 50 years! 4 generations have loved this house and have watched Rehoboth grow from a sleepy town into what it is today.

I've lived full time in Rehoboth for the last 10 years, opening my home to renters during the summer.

Laura Ritter purchased this house in 1963

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

What a great house! We wished it were closer to the beach, but that's the only downside. Would definitely stay here again! It felt like a home away from home.

Perfect Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends and I just had the best time in this beach house located in the middle of Rehoboth. The house had everything we needed for cooking, grilling, sleeping, even amazing speakers for our beach tunes. There are plenty of beds/couches and we were able to comfortably sleep 12 people in the house. The outdoor shower was also a great feature; I think we all exclusively used it during the weekend. The hot tub is clean and steaming hot - perfect for late night fun. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots and pans and makes cooking for large groups super easy. We also used the gas grill one night for burgers and had a fabulous cookout outside on the beautiful patio furniture. There is also a charcoal grill if you prefer.

The home is just about a 10 minute walk to the beach and 10 minutes to the boardwalk. After driving to the house we didn't get back into our cars until we sadly departed from Rehoboth. Going out at night to Rehoboth Ave. et. al, is super easy and safe, since the house is so close to everything. The owners generously supply drink coolers, beach chairs, and beach umbrellas which were great extras to have for our big beach crew.

Planning this trip with the owners could not have been more seamless. From initial outreach to our closing transactions she was very helpful and quick to respond to my messages and questions. The owner is super friendly and generously gave us a great weekend price for the home. I would definitely recommend booking and staying in this house, and if and when I come back to Rehoboth I hope the house is available for me to rent again.

Perfect Home Away From Home...

  • 5 of 5

Some friends and I stayed here during Memorial day weekend this year. The location was perfect, everything was within walking distance (shopping, bars, bars, and more bars!). The house itself was very comfortable and CLEAN, with ample sleeping areas throughout. Although we didn’t BBQ on this particular weekend, it wasn't due to lack of options, as the backyard was outfitted with a gas grill and patio furniture (and…. a HOT TUB!). I would definitely recommend this place, in fact, we are already planning our next stay here…. Hope we don’t beat you to it!

Perfect Weekend House at a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Myself and about ten friends signed up to run in the Dogfishhead Dash in late September. We were coming from D.C. so we wanted to make a weekend out of it, preferring to stay in an accommodating house that was close to the beach and Rehoboth's main strip. Being a walkable 5 blocks from both, this house fit that bill perfectly. We walked from the front door to the beach and the shops/restaurants and back with no problems, both during the day and evening. The streets are far from busy and lined with sidewalks and beautiful homes.

The house itself worked out very well. Plenty of beds and room for everyone. Spacious kitchen with enough room to cook and dine, a screened-in porch, outdoor shower, big screen TV and a most welcoming jacuzzi in the backyard. The neighborhood is also nice and quiet and filled with trees. This was a much more peaceful, comfortable and relaxed setting compared to our condo stay at Dewey Beach the previous year.

I also can't say enough kind things about the he owner. She is quite gracious and responsive. Setting up the weekend and handling the logistics were a cinch. I also left my pillow at the house and she went out of her way to mail it back to me. Thanks again for that!

Highly recommended!
