About Marty Engel

fishing at the inlet to Rohobeth Bay off the tailgate of the pick up or swim in the ocean is what I like... I got an inexpensive wetsuit ($59) so I could swim during cold weather and found out the hard way that the zipper goes in back LOL...dogs are welcome on the beach during the off season...the Starboard across the street is a fun place to have a beer and hang out... my teen age daughter loves to bring her friends down to stay when we can and I have some flexibility as a small business owner for carpet and flooring - see FLOORCRAFT on the web in Springfield, VA.

Marty Engel purchased this house in 2008

Why Marty Engel chose Dewey Beach

the property is an investment but also a destination that is a home away from home where people feel comfortable and sit outside on the porch to enjoy the solitude or spend time with friends

What makes this house unique

solitude and privacy..the outdoor shower is great and then drying in the sun is peaceful

This house has a cute little bungalow feel to it. Everything was clean and in place- it looks as nice in person as it does in the pictures. It also is a great location, close to all restaurants and bars.

Owner's Response: Thank you! I just got back from staying at the cottage for one week and feel renewed. There is so much peace to be found there whether enjoying the porch and garden or entertaining inside. My 84 year old mother said that the pillow top mattress in the master bedroom gave her the best nights sleep. I love the new patio pavers by the outdoor shower and will miss the old place after the closing in the next week early July or so. I am sure I will be back as a renter as well but look forward to cashing out on my beach house investment. The new owners are excited about maintaining the rentals and keeping up maintenance for the little gem by the ocean. Enjoy the sunshine.

fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

Walking distance to just about everything, well maintained and clean, surprisingly quiet and secluded feeling considering how close it is to main road/bars/restaurants. LOVED the porch, spent a good amount of our time out there when we weren't on the beach. Would definitely consider staying here again.

Lovely getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Charming beach house with great screened in porch. We spent most of the time out there because it was so pleasant. Easy to navigate for my handicapped foster son as well. All amenities supplied as advertised. It was nice to find such a nice property where I could also take my dog; she loved it, too.

Owner's Response: Thank for the review. There is a little magic out there and so happy to hear that you found it. We are continually updating and hope to get to the little jungle in the outdoor shower next season. Brick patio pavers and a new shed would be nice too. All in good time. I hope to hear from you again soon. Warm Regards.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year in a row that we stayed here. It was refreshing to see that Marty has kept up his high standards. We could see how the property has been maintained since last year. Once again, our dogs loved the porch and so did we. Park your car and walk everywhere. Be sure to take a shower in the outside shower - I thought about that during one of our long snow storms this past year. What can we say??? We'll be back next year :) Thank you Marty for opening your wonderful cottage up so that others can enjoy it.

Love this cottage. Perfect, private great for pets

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I with our 2 small dogs enjoyed ourselves in this perfect beach cottage and will do so again next year. It was just right for us. The private setting was amazing and the screened in porch was perfect. If we were to ever buy a cottage in Dewey it would be this one,,,,,It had everything we needed. Marty was very nice to deal with and no problems. We even had brand new outdoor furniture delivered during our stay. I was able to get my garden fix on, his landscaping was nice, I clipped and watered. That is my heaven. For the people that leave negative feedback, don't be so lazy, if you see something that needs fixed or tended to just do it! Pay it forward. As for us we couldn't be happier with our stay.

Thank You Marty for providing us with such a great place!

See you next year

Owner's Response: Hi and thanks for the great review. BTW, my gardener used to live down the street but has recently moved out of the area so thank you for your patience and understanding during this transition time. I am glad you enjoyed the new furniture. Other updates are coming soon. Warm Regards, Marty

The Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Booked the house to get away from the city and it was just what the doctor ordered! The house was great and the location was even better. The beach was at the end of the block, and food & drinks were across the street. I would definitely stay here again!
