Delaware House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Den, Sleeps 14, Outdoor Private Shower

Welcome to a luxurious oasis in Rehoboth Beach, with a private in-ground pool in a wonderful 5 bedroom home. This home features a new kitchen with stainless steel appliances, and all of the cooking tools/dishes you need, or use the barbecue on the large deck overlooking the pool. Everything in this home is new -- all of the furnishings, high-end audio-video equipment (3 flat screen tvs), hardwood floors, and new bathrooms (featuring tumbled marble shower/baths). The backyard is a lush retreat on a nice-sized private lot, and the private pool provides a terrific addition to your beach days. The beach is about five blocks away. Private outdoor shower! Pool can be heated for addl fee.

The home features 5 bedrooms -- king bed, four queen beds, two single/twin beds, and double/full pull-out sofa in a small walk-through den. Rates 1800 to 6500 a week in season (May through October); contact for off-season weekly and week-end rates. You'll love this comfortable and casual home -- it does not ''feel like a rental'' since all of the finishes are upscale.

Beautiful, updated house in great location

  • 5 of 5

My extended family and I spent the week at this beautiful home in Rehoboth Beach. We had six adults and three kids so the room setup was perfect. Each couple had their own room and the two oldest kids shared a room. There was still a queen size bed that went unused so you could definitely fit more people in the house. The rooms were all a nice size and each family had their own bathroom. The pool/backyard were lovely and having a pool was a huge hit with the kids. If you are going in early summer, I would suggest having the pool heated as the backyard is quite shady. We decided to drive to the beach since we had a lot of toys but you could walk if you wanted (a 17 minute walk.) There is also a nice park that is about half way between the beach and the house. Overall, this was a great find for my family and I appreciated that the owner responded quickly to my questions.

Awesome Luxury Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We were so excited about this trip and definitely not disappointed. The house was perfect with tons of space, beautiful bathrooms, large bedrooms, nice kitchen and the doors out to the deck were just beautiful. The best part was the pool! The kids and adults had so much fun swimming and relaxing. Everything was just perfect and a big thank you to Jim and Siobhan for having such a fabulous house for me and my family of 14 to stay in. If your looking for a great house this is the one to get. Again many thanks.

Great Space for Large Groups

  • 5 of 5

This house was great—clean, comfortable, and spacious. We had a large group of 13 for a beach weekend and this was the perfect spot! The living area that opens out to the deck and yard is just beautiful. Would definitely stay here again!

Can't go wrong with this house!

  • 5 of 5

We needed some time away to relax and this house is the place to do it. A short 4 blocks to the beach and boardwalk, restaurants and shops galore.

The house is clean and very nice. All updated baths and kitchen that has everything a family could need.

Plenty of room for everyone, And don't forget the great deck, yard and private pool! Just beautiful!!

Have already suggested this rental to many friends.

We will definitely be back!

Great House and Location!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this home alone with a number of other family members to celebrate my mother's 60th birthday. The home is centrally located between Rehoboth Beach and Dewey Beach. We enjoyed being close to both places, while staying on a quiet street with lots of privacy. Everyone was impressed with everything that the property offered from the pool to the furnishings. The owner was very responsive and even checked in during our stay to make sure that the property met our expectations. I already cannot wait to get back!
