Delaware— Dewey Beach

This is where vacationers go for days filled with lots of sun, nice weather, thrilling water adventures along ocean beaches, and nights filled with partying. Boating, parasailing, wake boarding, water skiing, windsurfing, and dolphin watching are popular activities. You will find plenty of nightclubs with live music and lots of dancing. Don’t miss the serene experience of watching sunset views of the bay. Enjoy Monday Movie nights on the beach, grab a Jolly Trolley shuttle to Rehoboth Beach to stroll the boardwalk, and make the most of tax-free shopping at the Tanger Outlets, according to Visit Delaware.

PLEASE NOTE: OCCUPANCY IS STRICTLY ENFORCED. WE ARE NOT A PARTY HOUSE, A GATHERING PLACE OR A HANGOUT. ONLY THOSE NAMED ON THE AGREEMENTS MAY BE ON THE PREMISES. VIOLATIONS TO THIS WILL RESULT IN EVICTION! Sorry I have to post this but due to a few reservations that understate how many guests and then just having them show up I want to be sure everyone is aware of the rules.

About Dell Tush

My husband and I purchased the four unit apartment building in 2001 because we wanted our grandchildren to enjoy summers at the beach just as our children had done. We are on site in one apartment and rent the other three to our summer guests. My husband and I have been married for 47 years and actually honeymooned in the first floor apartment. We have three wonderful children and four beautiful granddaughters. Being very family oriented, we completely renovated to make our apartments as comfortable and inviting as possible. We want our guests to return year after year because they enjoy it so much.

Dell Tush purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Dell Tush chose Dewey Beach

Our children encouraged us to buy the place to keep our tradition of Dewey Beach going and to keep it in the family. We completely renovated to make it one of the nicest rentals in Dewey Beach. Our goal is to eventually pass it on to our own children so they will enjoy many more years at the beach. Dewey Beach is a wonderful unique place unlike what you'll find in Rehoboth or Bethany with less crowds and we are a barrier island. We have the ocean on one side and the bay on the other.

Everything is available in the immediate area from outlet shopping, fine dining, beach and bay activities , golf, etc. to crabs and beer. Dewey has a lot of entertainment for nighttime.

What makes this apartment unique

Relax in style and enjoy all the comforts of home. Our convenient location is great for small children and our older guests since there are no roads to cross and it is so convenient for nap time, lunchtime, or bathroom breaks. Spend time in our unique backyard. This is one of the largest backyards in Dewey Beach.

From our convenient located you can walk to all of Dewey for everything from fine dining to pizza and crabs. Dewey has some of the best nightlife around. Give Dewey a try and you'll never want to go anywhere else.

Bring your dog and enjoy having them with you rather than in a kennel. We are pet friendly for well behaved completely housebroken dogs with a pet fee of $30.00 per day per pet.

So close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The apartment was neat and clean and had everything that we needed. It was just a few houses from the beach so my family could all come and go as they pleased throughout the day. Plenty of good restaurants were within a few blocks, so we were able to walk to dinner and ice cream every night. And our dog was allowed to come with us, so we took long walks with her on the beach in the evenings. Perfect getaway.

Wonderful location near beach

We really enjoyed our stay at this cute two-bedroom apartment. It is just steps away from the beach and has a nice backyard. The owner was very friendly and helpful and lives upstairs. The apartment was clean, cute, and pleasant.

Great weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We scheduled a weekend getaway for a small bachelorette party. We were interested in Dewey because of the activities, restaurants, and the beach. This house offered a great central location! It was cute, offered a comfortable place to stay, and the owners were easy to communicate with.
