About the property

East Of Route 1, South Rehoboth Duplex, 2nd Floor Unit, 2 Bedroom, 1.5 Bath

Family-oriented, 2nd floor duplex, clean and cozy 2 bedroom/1.5 bath beach condo in a quiet residential neighborhood, east of Route 1 at the border of South Rehoboth & Dewey Beach. We will only rent to responsible adults and families. We are in residence here most weekends and enjoy sharing our beach house with friends and family. This year we are offering some mid-week stays for people looking for a short beach getaway.

Walk or bike to the beach/boardwalk along the flat, mostly shaded route around Silver Lake (about 5 - 6 blocks, just over 1/2 mile). Take the Jolly Trolley or walk/bike to Rehoboth Avenue shops and restaurants or Dewey Beach nightclubs.

Fully equipped, well stocked, eat-in kitchen, new washer/dryer, comfortable furnishings including outdoor furniture with a dining set and gas grill on the deck. Delightful, secluded, nicely-shaded, screened-in back porch for coffee and morning contemplation, reading, playing games, or afternoon cocktails. Sleeps 4, sleeping arrangements can be configured as a king or two twin beds in each bedroom. Just let us know how you would like the beds made up; we provide all linens and towels!

The flat, mostly shaded terrain is perfect for walking and biking. We will provide a beach caddy with 4 beach chairs, cooler, and beach towels. Parking is available near the beach and we will provide a city parking permit if you prefer driving. Ask us about the adult bikes and burley bee bike trailer that we have available to borrow; you just need to bring your own helmets!

Other amenities include: central air-conditioning, wifi-access, cable TV in the living room and bedrooms, a fenced-in backyard with outdoor shower, and off street parking for 2 cars with additional ample free street parking.

No pets permitted. Allergen alert: owners have a golden retriever.

About Kathy & Peter

We are empty nesters with grandchildren. Kathy is a school nurse in the Philadelphia suburbs and is fortunate to work at a job where she has her summers free. Peter is a transportation planner, currently working and living in Northern Virginia during the work week. We meet half way most weekends in Rehoboth Beach because it is such a vibrant community year round and we enjoy the off season almost as much as the summer!

Kathy & Peter purchased this condo in 2013

Why Kathy & Peter chose Rehoboth Beach

We grew up vacationing at the Jersey shore, not realizing what a gem nearby Rehoboth Beach was. It was love at first sight on our first visit in April, 2013. By July, we were homeowners! We have since bought a 2nd unit just blocks away which we are in the process of renovating and hope to have posted on Homeaway.com by April. We love both units and will plan to stay in whichever one isn't rented on any given week. We use Homeaway every time we travel and have always had a good experience. It is our goal to make sure that you do too!

What makes this condo unique

We looked at several condos in Rehoboth Beach and Lewes. What sold us on this house was the screened porch. Nestled under a large shade tree, it feels as if you are sitting in a tree house. It's the perfect place to have morning coffee while the kids are still asleep, or a cocktail after coming home from the beach. We also love the proximity to Silver Lake. It's a beautiful, mostly shaded, walk to the beach that takes you around the lake. It's also so flat that even I, an overweight, middle-aged woman, can bike for miles! My favorite morning bike ride is around the lake, down the mile-long boardwalk, and onward along the coastal road to Cape Henlopen State Park.

Comfortable and cozy stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (including a 3 yr old and 8 yr old) had a wonderful time during our stay in Rehobeth and we were so fortunate to have found Kathy and Peter's property! It was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed for a stress-free stay! There is a big screen TV with cable, DVDs and DVD player, free wifi, and even a VCR and videotapes to choose from (which ironically our kids used and watched several Disney classics!). Plenty of towels for both bath and beach were supplied to us. The drive to the beach was short and Kathy provided a beach cart, beach chairs and beach toys that were super convenient. The walls are thin and this was made clear in the rental agreement. We did not have to worry about this until the last night (when the downstairs owners came for the weekend) but having a small fan to drown out any noise at night (which we had brought with us just in case) made it a non-issue. Overall, we had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend this property to others! Thank you!

Nice & Clean!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was very enjoyable. Good location and fully equipped! Everything we needed was there. We stayed a month in the Keys and after a few days had to make a list of the things we needed in the kitchen. Not here, it is there!

Kathy and Peter were very responsive and great to deal with. Would certainly rent from them again!

Great beach property!

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with the beach house. It was a great location. We were in walking distance to the beach and a short drive to outlets, downtown Rehoboth etc. The property itself was lovely. It's a keeper.

Wonderful time, awesome home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time. The house was more than we expected. Kathy was so responsive, helpful, and nice. When it's time to book our next trip to Rehoboth, we hope this place is available. Can't say enough nice things about the home and our host.

Our recent stay at this property was great !! Kathy & Peter were wonderful hosts !!

  • 5 of 5

This home is in a quiet, well kept neighborhood and everyone was friendly. The condo was immaculate and we didn't want for anything. I loved the fact that the linens were supplied, I didn't even have to make my bed !!

Every morning, I had coffee on the screened porch, listening to the birds chirp & watching the squirrels scatter about in the trees. It felt like I was actually in a tree house !!

It rained a few days, but the home is so comfortable & cozy and we didn't mind laying around just chilling, appreciating Mother Nature !! It was like being on retreat, getting away from all of the hustle & bustle of everyday life.

Good restaurants and music venues were in close proximity I'm a shopper so being right down the road from the Tanger Outlets was a big plus for me.

Being on a fixed income, the rates fell within our budget and it was like staying at a five star hotel !! We will definitely return
