About Phyllis Martin

I've been coming to Dewey beach for over 30 years and love it! After sharing a house with a great group of friends for many years, I purchased my own a few years ago. There is always so much gong on in Dewey and Rehoboth, both in the summer and in the off season when the area hosts numerous festivals such as the Jazz Festival, the Sea Witch Festival,the Film Festival, and the Greyhounds Reach the Beach Weekend to name just a few. The beach is fabulous (and welcomes pets before 9 AM and after 5 PM), casual spots such as the Starboard, Ed's chicken, numerous other Dewey attractions abound, and fine dining can be found at countless Rehoboth locations. It's great for groups of friends getting together and for families that want to be near the beach, shops, and restaurants yet far enough away from the nightlife for quiet relaxation. Dewey truly is :the best of both worlds'.

Phyllis Martin purchased this house in 2007

Why Phyllis Martin chose Dewey Beach

The house is in the heart of everything! It's a short walk to a great beach where we can take our dogs in the mornings and evenings, walk to Ed's chicken (a must for visitors to Dewey), the Starboard, shops, and other restaurants. The nearby Jolly Trolley is a great way to enjoy Rehoboth without the hassle of driving and parking. It's also a pleasant, though longer, walk, bike, or jog into Rehoboth. We also liked the yard and the set back location near the end of the block -- quieter, yet near everything.

What makes this house unique

Quiet location, large private yard, short walk to beach and key locations such as the Starboard, Ed's Chicken & Crabs, Jolley Trolley to Rehoboth. Separate suite with den/bedroom/bathroom and loft make it perfect for a group, 2 families to share, or a family with parents or in-laws wanting a bit of privacy.

Great choice!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my friends group stayed for This last labor day weekend. I spend months looking for the best option and we all have zero regrets on the decision. The house is great, comfortable and very spacious. We're all outgoing people and everything from the bars to the restaurants was really close. The backyard space is great and no doubt is was the best parking considering we were in 10 ppl. A plus is how Phyllis is such a delight to deal with. EXTRA RECOMMEND and can't wait for next summer!

Lovely Shore House in Dowtown Dewey Beach

  • 4 of 5

The Owner (Phyllis) was wonderful and easy to correspond! She was kind enough to allow our group to check into the rental home early, while cleaning was still in progress. We had a wonderful weekend trip and loved the home! Walking distance to EVERYTHING (including the beach). Plenty of sleeping space for our group of 10! My family owns a home a few miles away from the beach in Rehoboth and it was refreshing to be able to walk everywhere for the weekend without dealing with traffic. Would highly recommend this home as a rental for a week or weekend!

Thank you, Phyllis!!

Great a house and excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed a weekend for a guys getaway. The house is in a perfect location - 2 blocks from the Starboard and 3 from Bottle and Cork. The house had plenty of space. We slept 10 comfortably. Phyllis is great and is super easy to work with. No doubt we will rent this house again when planning the next trip.

Fantastic house and perfect customer service

  • 5 of 5

Four of us rented this property along with our dogs and we loved it. It is a short walk from the beach (approximately 1.5 blocks). The house has everything you need inside. As well, it has two grills in the back. The neighborhood is peaceful and if you are a dog lover, this is definitely the location you want to be in. As stated, this property is dog friendly, but the entire area is as well.

The owner (Phyllis) is extermely customer centric and friendly. She answered all questions we had before renting promptly and remained in communication as needed through our departure.

I highly suggest this property.

Couldn't ask for a better deal.

  • 5 of 5

First off let me say that Phyllis is by far the best renter I have ever had the pleasure to work with. She responds quickly and if something is needed she will take care of it ASAP. She is understanding and genuinely wants you to have a great time. Now aside from Phyllis the house itself was perfect. It isn't the "4 Seasons" but when you are spending most of your time at the beach or outside who needs that? It was very nice inside and all of the furniture was comfortable. It was also clean. I was there with a group of 12 people. It never felt crowded and everyone had a place to sleep comfortably. The backyard was perfect for playing yard games like "cornhole" or "ladderball" while grilling. The location was great as well. The beach was 1.5 blocks away and there were restaurants and bars (if you enjoy a bit of night life) all within a 5 minute walk. The house was also in a quiet enough area that you could relax without traffic noise or screaming people but not so quiet that neighbors would yell at you for being outside with a group of 12 people playing yard games. I definitely recommend this place and I will surely use it again in the future.

P.S. I would also recommend this for a "guys getaway" but the only option was "girls getaway."
