Why Sally Morrison chose Delaware

This house has it all! It's right on the lake for bird watching, fishing, and peaceful times on the dock. But... it's still at the beach!! We walk or bike to the beach in under five minutes. We walk to the shops and eateries in town in just 10 minutes. This cottage comes with its own romantic history. It was built by a bootlegger who picked up shipments on the ocean front, brought them across Silver Lake and stored them in the basement.

What makes this house unique

Walk or Bike to the Beach, Boardwalk, into town or out on the town! Parking pad for two vehicles, and 2 seasonal passes allows you to have up to 4 cars without hassles.

excellent experience

  • 5 of 5

The property owners were awesome and answered all of our questions before our arrival. The house easily accommodated 6 adults and two children (and we could have fit more!). It's an easy walk to town, the beach, the boardwalk, the lake, and playground. The parking pass was a definite plus for the beach -- we drove down all of our gear in the morning and easily parked on the beach block each day. The kitchen had everything that we could ask for. The outside shower was amazing. Thank you! Thank you! We hope to see you again.

Very Good

  • 4 of 5

Very nice home for a family vacation that accomodated 6 adults and two young children very nicely. Clean, comfortable, and convenient to the beach and town.

I would recommned this rental to a friend and would definitely consider a return to this unit. Will also mention that the entire process was well managed by the owners who were very responsive to our needs. I really liked the "Home Away" app that was made available.

A nostalgic house with every detail in mind

  • 5 of 5

The customer service was exceptional from the initial inquiry until our departure. The owners were responsive, professional, and truly had a desire to please us during our stay. The location was phenomenal: close to beach, close to center of town, not far from the outlets, and it overlooked a lake with a gazebo. There was literally something for everyone of various ages.

The house was clean, comfortable and had a cozy feel to it. It was very spacious whereas we were 10 people and never felt on top of one another.

I have rented in this area in the past with a local realtor and am THRILLED to have found this gem on my own!

Thanks Sally for a great time!

Wonderful stay at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

As a Delaware native who no longer lives within driving distance to the ocean, it was a pleasure being able to stay in Rehoboth and share my childhood experiences with my children. We loved being so close to the beach, the boardwalk and Rehoboth Ave. With 4 kids at the beach house, it made life on their little legs a lot easier. We also very much appreciated having the parking passes so we didn't have to carry our gear all the way to the beach. As a group of 4 adults and 4 kids, we had plenty of room in the house (one bedroom went entirely unused), the kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed, and we always felt right at home. We look forward to staying here again when the kids are a little older! Thanks again!!

Perfect for our Family

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our extended family and their needs. We loved the quiet neighborhood and close proximity to the lake access for our kayaks. We found the home to be super clean and welcoming when we arrived. Communicating with the owners was always a joy. We will definitely be renting this home again!

In addition to all the amenities as advertised, this historic cottage was absolutely charming inside and out. Beautiful setting on Silver Lake and short walk to beach and town. Whimsical garden (the hydrangeas were in full bloom), lovely patio, and interior beachy comfortable feel/layout. Many lovely restaurants in town, however I would advise making reservations before your trip. We loved Bramble and Brine in Rehoboth, and the walkable town of Dewey had some venues for our 20 something members. My family thoroughly enjoyed our time including our chihuahuas. It was so relaxing having them with us. The dogs loved their vacation too. A very dog friendly town and beach nearby. We would definitely recommend this home any time of year. Complete ease of rental process and very thorough information.
