Nala, Rusty Rudder, Woody's and Sharky's Grill are all a short walk away. Or get a bushel of crabs, cook them in the gourmet kitchen and share them out on the deck.

About Doris and Arthur Rennings

We grew up in Delaware and New Jersey and always enjoyed visiting Delaware Beaches. We chose to buy here because the area is small and friendly and always feels like home.

Doris and Arthur Rennings purchased this townhome in 2002

Why Doris and Arthur Rennings chose Dewey Beach

This property is comfortable and convenient. We love that we can walk to the beach, bay, and restaurants. The townhouse is large enough for our extended families to enjoy Dewey together.

What makes this townhome unique

The home sleeps 10+ and there are 6 outdoor decks and parking for 4 cars so the whole family is comfortable.

Loved it!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was great! It is so close to the beach, especially for the kids. The place was very clean, had everything we needed and still very roomy. Sonja was great to work with and checked in to make sure everything was ok. Would totally stay here again!

Wonderful week in Dewey

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and updated with plenty of space for our party of 8 adults. Great location. We enjoyed the rooftop deck but the screened in porch with large picnic table was our favorite place to gather. Was a perfect spot on a rainy day too. Sonja was great to work with. Will look forward to visiting again.

Beautiful beach house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting through HomeAway and our experience could not have been better. Sonja Brooks, the property mgr. was a pleasure to work with - she always answered all of our questions and was available by phone during our stay. The house was very clean and spacious - spacious kitchen. The location is great, on a street that dead ends at the beach and its a 5 minute walk to get there. Dewey Beach was great, quiet at night and several restaurants within walking distance. Lifeguards at the beach. We highly recommend this property.

Charming beach house that is well kept, amazing location, lots of outdoor space.

  • 5 of 5

The beach home was the perfect size to accommodate a few families. Each of the rooms are nicely decorated and the beds are very comfortable. Updated kitchen with all appliances you can think of that you may need.

The location is unbeatable. It is a two minute walk to the beach and a two minute walk to the main strip with all of the bars and restaurants. Rusty rudders is right across the street with the rest of the popular bars of Dewey just down the road.

No issues at all during my stay. Highly recommend the place for a nice home away from home for a week at the beach, it has everything you need!
