About Sherry

We purchased our first home here in 1998 and we loved it so much, we bought two more! Now we are retired and live here permanently. We rent the other two properties. We love meeting the people who visit here in summer and especially enjoy watching the little children play in the sun, sand, and surf as well as watching the dogs romp on the beach. I have been very active in the town as Town Commissioner for 10 years, serving as mayor for 6 of those years .

Sherry purchased this Condo in 2000

Why Sherry chose Dewey Beach

Enjoy sunrises and moonrises from your bed or one of the three oceanfront decks. Even your family dog can enjoy a vacation in dog-friendly Dewey where dogs are allowed on the beach after 5:30 p.m. and before 9:30 a.m. in peak season. Our condo has been completely remodeled over the past few years, including new mattresses and carpeting. And the owners live one block away in case you need help with anything.

What makes this Condo unique

If you enjoy ocean waves, beautiful sunsets on the bay, and a cocktail on a deck with a light sea breeze, Dewey Beach is the place for you to vacation. Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the serene Rehoboth Bay, Dewey Beach is a favorite seaside resort for young and old alike. Only one mile long and two blocks wide, you can easily walk anywhere in town. With old fashioned cottages among more modern condos and single family homes, Dewey has a charm of its own. It is a perfect place for a family vacation with activities for the children such as movies on the beach every Monday and bonfires complete with marshmallows to roast, on the beach every Wednesday evening in summer. With our rentals being a very short walk to the beach, it’s easy and convenient to take the kids back for a nap or lunch or to go to the bathroom! Tetherball, volleyball, and skim boarding are allowed on the beach in specified areas. With our beaches less crowded than neighboring Rehoboth and Lewes, there’s plenty of room to build sand castles and bury each other in the sand. And you’re sure to spot dolphins while sitting right on the beach. Sometimes they even jump out of the water, putting on a little show for the sunbathers. Dewey Beach even has its own playground on the bay side. Sunbathe at the beach in the afternoon and watch the sunset from the bay in the evening. These are some of the reasons why many families return to Dewey year after year.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  One of the best things about renting from us is that we live only a block away and are able to remedy most problems quickly. If you had let me know there was a problem, we would have had if fixed immediately. I'm so sorry you had a bad experience. Lots of little things break by the end of the season that are only obvious if you are actually inhabiting the facility and using the appliances, lights, etc. so we depend on people letting us know if there is something wrong. I'd be glad to give you a free weekend off season to make it up to you. Let me know. Diane

                                                                  Susan C.

                                                                  We were very surprised how big the house is compared to the photos online. More than enough space for two families. The house is clean and had everything we needed for a great week. We all (dogs included) had a wonderful time!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  I'm sure your dogs enjoyed the beach where they can run and play with other dogs. I'm glad you found the condo to be roomy. Proximity to the beach is also a great convenience. We hope you will return next year. Diane

                                                                  Had a wonderful family trip!

                                                                  Katie H.

                                                                  We've been coming to Dewey for almost 20 years with our extended family, but this was our first stay at Diane's beautiful oceanfront home. We hope we can return next summer.

                                                                  The location is amazing. As you sit in the living room or on one of the oceanside decks, you feel like you are basically sitting out on the beach, but with all the comforts of home. And it's a short walk to the beach, so you can shuttle back and forth easily from your spot on the beach.

                                                                  The living room and dining area were a great size for our group. There were 7 of us (and one dog) staying in the house, but we had other family members a few houses away and we'd sometimes have the whole group over for dinner. There was enough space to accommodate everyone comfortably. And the kitchen is well-stocked. We cooked almost every night, and grilled once.

                                                                  My husband and I stayed in the master bedroom on the ground floor, with a comfortable king-sized bed. But the great thing about this room is that it was easy to bring our dog out for her evening walks, just down the stairs off of our deck, and then across the parking lot. In the mornings we often took her out to the beach. She was exhausted every evening. I loved the outdoor shower, as well.

                                                                  It's a gem, this house. Thank you for hosting us, Diane!

                                                                  The proximity to the ocean and the magnificent views are definitely one of wonderful features of our ocean-front condo. And many dog owners have mentioned the ease of taking the dog for a walk directly from the bedroom or down one flight of stairs. i"m sure your dog loved the ocean and had fun romping with other dogs on the beach after 5:30 p.m. or in the morning. I'm so glad to hear you liked your stay in Dewey and we certainly hope to have you back next year. Diane

                                                                  Great week at the beach.

It was nicely furnished and comfortable. One thing did not work for us. The top bunk seemed too unstable for a child of 8 to use. My daughter said it was a design flaw and could not be rectified.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

I wish you had told me about the bed while you were here and we would have had it replaced. I didn't know there was a problem. i will take a look at it and get it replaced as soon as possible. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay.
