About Ted Foschi
I am a Wilmington resident who purchased this condo to take his family to the beach. Its a short drive from Wilmington. We pull right up to the front door and just thow our stuff over the railing. We enjoy the condo with our two dogs and hope you will too.
Ted Foschi purchased this Condo in 2010
Why Ted Foschi chose Dewey Beach
We chose Dewey Beach because it has a less crowded beach then Rehobeth. The Delano Condo is right near great restaurants like the Rusty Rudder. If you are younger, there are fun night spots nearby. We chose this condo because we wanted to just walk out the door and be on the beach.

This place is great for big groups. It offers privacy with 4 seperate bedrooms and a terrific deck and living area to get together. Back bedroom can be used as a game room if you bring your own play station, xbox, etc.

Home away from Home
Our family had a fantastic time during our stay at this property. We have stayed here multiple times now and were pleasantly surprised with some of the updates since our last stay there 2 years ago. For us it is the perfect location and room setup. The homeowners are very responsive and great. Its on the first floor which makes it extremely convenient when you arrive with all of your belongings and groceries. Its great having the outdoor shower on the deck when we get back from a long day at the beach with kids. Another benefit is the storage box on the deck near the exit to the beach - its nice to have a place to store your beach chairs, toys etc. Our kids call it home when we are in Dewey. We love it there and will definitely be back.
So happy to hear you love all our updates. We try every year to focus on something new in our condo to improve. Its very important to us that all our guests have a home away from home. Only this home is walking distance to the beach. We look forward to seeing you next year.

A Dewey Beach Paradise
A family vacation is a highly anticipated, very special event, and we very much enjoyed our stay in Dewey. This was the perfect location to do it. Very convenient to the beach and the night life. I wanted a place that was walkable from all our favorite Dewey spots. Everything was clean when we arrived.
This house was perfect having everyone on the same floor and great sized common area! I also loved that there was a bathroom for every bedroom. The large living room and well equipped kitchen had ample space for the adults and kids, and the little ones loved piling up in the back bedroom / play room with the bunk beds, trundle and television. The main reason we come here is for the beach. With no streets to cross it’s just a short walk. In fact, it was close enough to come back to use the bathroom, or to grab a forgotten snack. In nearby Rehoboth we enjoyed the restaurants and shops, and with the convenient, on-site parking we never had to worry about losing our spaces. All in all, a great place to stay, and my wife and I really enjoyed it. So did our dog . Loved being able to bring our little buddy with us, and loved the fact that Dewey was so dog friendly. We stayed at many places over the years, and this one is by far the best! We WILL be back.
Thanks so much to Ted and Nancy -- keep up the good work! aa++
Fine if necessary but choose somewhere else if possible
- Walking distance to the beach without crossing any major roads
- Walking distance to restaurants
- Enough convenient parking (although you get threatened with a steep fee if you accidentally take a permit home with you)
- Kitchen had plenty of dishes and cookware
- Cute beachy decorations in the house
- Right on the main road. We heard traffic and people all day and all night. We couldn't enjoy the outdoor space due to all of the traffic. It was not relaxing at all. We also heard loud music and dancing from the place above us at night which made it hard to sleep.
- We got the feeling this guy didn't want us staying in his house. There were a lot of rules and after every rule came a threat that you wouldn't get your security deposit back. We were afraid to touch anything and felt like we were being yelled at the entire time we were there.
- The 5 pages of rules sent to us included instructions to vacuum and clean the whole place before you left. Seemed ridiculous to pay the cleaning fee when they don't do any cleaning and insist you do everything.
- You bring EVERYTHING including cooking oil, salt, coffee filters, soap, etc.
Pets are allowed but again with several pages of rules. Dogs cannot pee anywhere on the property. They cannot leave dog hair anywhere. Etc. We have a very well-behaved dog and were still worried about getting yelled at or losing our security deposit. (We did get our security deposit back although with all the rules and threats, we were worried about it the whole time which is not a relaxing vacation.)
Bottom line: this place was fine but there are tons of places to stay - next time I would choose one further off the road where the owner wants your business and you feel welcome.
We are sorry that our house rules made you worry so much that you were unable to relax on your vacation. Please know that our house rules were put in place to ensure that all of our guests have a relaxing and enjoyable vacation while in our home. Basically, all we are asking of our guests is that they treat our vacation condo with the same respect as they would their own home. Since we put a lot of effort into making our Delano condo a lovely space to be enjoyed by our guests, we do ask that you leave it in the same condition as you found it. While we do have professional cleaners come in to completely clean and disinfect our entire vacation home prior to the arrival of the next guest, asking our guests to remove excess sand and pet hair by vacuuming the carpets, sweeping the floors, and wiping down surfaces prior to their departure allows our cleaners more time to focus on the heavy-duty cleaning that is required prior to the arrival of the next visitor.
Just like our vacation home, our condominium community is important to us. Nancy and I treat the Delano Condos like our primary residence. Since there is only a very limited amount of green on the property, we ask that our guests do not allow their dogs to relieve themselves at the Delano Condos. There are plenty of green grass spaces located less than 50 yards from our deck, In Dewey Beach dogs are welcome most everywhere.
While we are disappointed that you found our house rules stressful, we are confident that a more enjoyable vacation is had when everyone respects the property and the people around them.
Great place for a large family
Plenty of room for a large group, convenient access for shopping and dining, the beach is steps away, first floor unit was great for older renters, plenty of outdoor seating, clean and enough bathrooms for a large family
