Perfect for vacationers looking to enjoy a wonderful private home, the ocean, the beach, and all that a vibrant Rehoboth has to offer.

This circa 1900 gem has been professional restored, decorated and well-maintained by family owners and has never been available for rental until now. Steeped in history, the home has served at times as a Methodist church, fudge factory and bookstore. Recently updated with new mechanical systems, windows, doors, kitchen, baths and flooring, this home has all the modern amenities sought-by today’s sophisticated vacationers.

Enter through a traditional wooden gate with fencing, a sunny front garden and deck with seating. French doors open into an expansive living area with lots of windows, high ceilings and a working fireplace. Painted beadboard base paneling transitions the old home with the new wood floors, walls and lighting. A sunny and cozy den off the living and dining rooms provides a wonderful place for families to gather and relax and watch the preparations in the kitchen beyond. The dining room seat 10-12 and has a dramatic ceiling, lighting fixture, and a working fireplace with a custom tiled front-it is perfect for dinner parties with family and friends.

The kitchen was recently professional remodeled and features a Subzero side-by-side refrigerator and built-in wine-cooler, Wolfe six burner gas stove, stainless steel appliances and stone countertops. The kitchen is well-laid out, great for family cooking and entertaining, and includes ample cabinets, upgraded cooking and dining ware and an eat-at counter over-looking the dining room and den beyond.

A convenient hall powder room completes the features of the main first floor living area.

There is a seating area, HDTV, four poster king size bed, large walk-in closet, upgraded carpeting, and doorways leading to the rear decks and adjoining outdoor shower.

The bedrooms have a total of two queen beds and two twin beds. Bedrooms are bright with ceiling fans and quality carpeting. The second floor of the home provides ample room and quiet space for a large family to spread out.

The adjoining bath has a dramatic peaked ceiling, stunning chandelier, windows for light and privacy, a spa tub, glass shower, and marble and tile surfaces.

                                                    Wonderful Family Home In Great Location!

                                                    Kyra G.

                                                    This dog friendly classic cottage was our best vacation rental in over 10 years of renting!

                                                    My husband and I were here for a short Easter getaway with our young adult children and their significant others. There was room for everyone and a cute little fenced yard for the four legged family members. The first floor master was huge, as was the open plan family room. The gourmet kitchen had everything we needed including a griddle and massive Refridgerator. The house felt luxurious, yet was very comfortable. The gas fireplace did a nice job of taking the chill off the house when temps got chilly outside. The location was perfect for quick walks to Starbucks, shops , restaurants, and even the boardwalk.

                                                    Also, the property owners couldn't have made us feel more welcome. The provided linens and welcome bottle of wine where nice touches that really showed the commitment to ensuring renters enjoyed their stay.

                                                    We'll definitely stay here again!

                                                    WOW! Loved this place!

                                                    Jennifer D.

                                                    We had an amazing vacation staying at Le Shack. The two master bedrooms were perfect for two families - and enough space for grown-ups and kids. The house is gorgeous! The pictures don't do it justice...it's large, yet warm and inviting. Our kids eagerly explored the house, negotiated their respective bedrooms and enjoyed the time spent inside and outside at the beach. The location is close to town (and the amazing restaurants and shopping) and close enough to the beach to walk to the boardwalk. We hated to leave and we will definitely be back.

                                                    Love it!

                                                    Marilou R.

                                                    Beautiful, well appointed house in great area of Rehoboth, walking distance to restaurants, shops (Starbucks, yay!) and boardwalk. We had two families and had plenty of room to hang out upstairs in the tv room and downstairs by the fire or sunroom. It was nice having two master bedrooms for the adults. Kitchen was great to cook in with lots of stuff - we made great use of the wine frig! Quiet street but still one block from main Street.

                                                    Not Rehoboth's Best Rental

                                                    Anna L.

                                                    We have rented vacation homes in Rehoboth for about 15 years. Though the house was beautifully decorated, there were some disadvantages. For one, the owner/property manager was not quick to respond. Up to a week before our rental time, we had not gotten any notice that our deposit was received or any information about getting the keys to the house or the layout of the bedrooms, and other information. When we arrived, we were disappointed to find there was only one house key for 6 adults to share. There is no off street parking so finding parking if you move your car may prove difficult during the busy summer season. The cleanliness of the house was only fair. If you walked around in bare feet you would find your feet completely black on the bottoms. Though pets were not permitted, there were dog toys and dog beds in one of the bedrooms. The house smelled faintly of dogs. Midweek we found that we were sharing the house with mice. There were daily deposits of mice droppings in the upstairs master bath. The property manager was notified and an exterminator set up bait traps 24 hours after being notified. We were less than thrilled to clean up mouse droppings. The property manager brought over 2 bottles of wine--barely a consolation prize. On Thursday night, the air conditioning upstairs just stopped working. It was 81 degrees upstairs during the night. By that time, we were ready to pack the hell up and go home! We would not rent this house again.

                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                    Dear Guests….and those considering renting with us:

                                                    We sincerely apologize that this experience did not meet expectations. Guests have wonderful things to say, on average 4.7 stars out of 5.0 potential stars.

                                                    During your reservation and check-in process, we did not see many inquiries from you and apologize if anything was over-looked. We send out check-in details 2-3 days in advance and provide a phone number for contact. Bedroom and house details are on the VRBO site but we will review the listing to see if we can improve on this.

                                                    We always tell guests to call the phone number if something needs attention, whether it is the need for additional keys or parking assistance. This home is located in a very desirable residential neighborhood, right in town, and within walking distance to Rehoboth Avenue, shops, restaurants and entertainment. These days, everyone wants to be “in-town” and we think this is the perfect location.

                                                    After your stay, we discovered the home across the street was on the Annual Cottage House Tour that week, a charity event that draws lots of village-centric people to the event who want to help keep Rehoboth the charming community we think it is through charity donation. This event and the Farmer’s Market at the playground a block away on Tuesday (12 PM to 4 PM), may have led to a slight parking challenge during the day, but had you called us, we could have helped with parking advice, usually within 75-100 feet of the home in peak season, and this is in addition to the usually available three on-street spots in front of the house.

                                                    The home is listed as “pet friendly” on the VRBO site. We are sorry that you missed this. And all floor surfaces are cleaned and wet-mopped between each rental. Again, had we known that you were experiencing a problem, we would have address it right away. And should there have been a problem with the AC, a call may have helped us resolve any problem. The two-zoned system is new and powerful.

                                                    As for the unregistered guest – the mouse. This century-old expansive home in a semi-wooden neighborhood, is very charming. We are not sure how the mouse got to the upstairs bathroom and after three inspections there is no evidence of an existing problem. We would have suggested using one of the other four bathrooms until “our friend” was moved along.

                                                    Regardless, we sincerely apologize for everything but happy to know that you enjoy Rehoboth and will continue to visit the town in the future.

                                                    Perfect House!

                                                    Pat L.North Beach Haven, NJ

                                                    We had a group of women together for a ladies weekend and we booked this house because it looked to be close to restaurants, etc and had a good number of bedrooms. The house was better than we expected. It had a large living room and a separate seating area. We spent time around the large dining table. While we did not cook, the kitchen had plenty of room with a large fridge and wine fridge. The bedrooms were comfortable.

                                                    We were able to walk to shops and restaurants and to the beach although it is a bit of a walk with a beach chair.

                                                    We would recommend the house to anyone. It was clean, comfortable and the owner and manager were a pleasure to work with.

                                                    Lovely home

                                                    Girl's weekend was made special by staying in this lovely home. Plenty of room for everyone, and lots of bathrooms. Kitchen was super and had just about everything needed to cook up some great meals. Close to shopping and the beach. We all very much enjoyed our stay!
