About Cindy Mault

My grandmother purchased the cottage in 1952. I loved spending summers there with my parents, brothers and sisters. We enjoyed being close to the ocean and the boardwalk and looked forward to visiting each year. Even though I live and work in the Virgin Islands, a visit to Rehoboth has always provided me and my children with a connection to an old fashioned vacation filled with walking or riding bikes around town. The cottage is now filled with its fifth generation of happy family vacationers!

Why Cindy Mault chose Rehoboth Beach

The location is ideal. We enjoy coming up from the beach, hanging our towels on the line and taking outside showers. The large screened porch is fun for adults and children. The 'playroom' provides a quiet space for game playing or watching movies at the end of a full day!

What makes this cottage unique

Attractive, well located, fenced yard, outside shower and large front porch...park the car and you're set to relax! Guests will enjoy refurbished bathrooms, fresh paint throughout, a new queen bed and a spiffy, updated exterior!

Cute house, near beach, shaded

  • 4 of 5

The house is a perfect example of a traditional east coast beach house. The living room and screened porch were spacious and we literally lived on the porch! The squirrels and bunnies entertained us. We were 2 couples and an older mom so the sleeping arrangements were perfect. (We questioned what it would be like with 8 people and only 6 beds.) The 2 baths were nice particularly the one downstairs. And we loved the outside shower.The kitchen was well equipped especially for a beach rental. A grill would have been nice. We cooked in some and ate out the rest. Such nice restaurants in RB. One of our group had to work and found the WiFi went in and out. I had overlooked the room air conditioning units when renting but found it be satisfactory. We used the fans a lot; thank you for providing them. As usual we took a Coastal Kayak tour and enjoyed ourselves tremendously. We recommend them. We liked that the house was a short walk to the beach and to downtown RB.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. The porch is amazing and the "wild life" observation makes it even more fun! Long story short on the grill; in years past guests really neglected it on their short stays and it was an eyesore at checkin. With the weekly turnover, it became too much for me to maintain in the way I wanted.. Now guests planning to grill bring something small and portable and find a safe place to do vacation grilling if they wish. Enjoyed having you and hope you book st the cottage again next season.

Charming house w/ a great back yard

  • 4 of 5

My only complaint is that we were counting on a BBQ grill to be at the house and brought charcoal with us. We were able to borrow a grill and continue with our beach week plans. This house is so charming and worked really well for our family with parents, 2 adult children and 2 teen children. Most of our meals were on the charming screened in porch - coffee in the morning was the best after walking a short block and 1/2 to the beach to watch sunrise! The living room was larger than we expected and spent several hours playing cards and games in that room. The outside shower is very convenient and we were thankful it was there as the temps were in the 90s for our beach week 2017.

Owner's Response: It sounds like you had a great vacation at the cottage and I'm so glad. Yes, the screened porch and outdoor shower are favorites with most guests,, and I agree that board games just seem to be more fun when played at this locationI I stopped having a grill at the house some years ago; I was so glad to hear from you so we could clear that up and you could make the arrangements you did. Thanks for coming!

Great house near the beach

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week at this house. Everything was in good condition and there was ample space for everyone. The screened in porch was really nice in the mornings and evenings. The location is fantastic - close to the beach, but on a quiet street. I would gladly stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review of my cottage. I always enjoy hearing that others enjoy it as much as I do. Several guests have commented about the quiet nature of the street. That is a great benefit in my mind. The cottage is close to everything, yet removed from the noise and congestiion sometimes found at the beach. Please book for next year; I would love to have you!

Great House and Location !!!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great time at this cottage. It is about 1.5 blocks from the beach and boardwalk, so we were able to walk down in less than 5 minutes. The house is very homey and we loved the screened in front porch for dinners. It is also located where the beach starts to get less crowded, which is nice. We were able to walk down the boardwalk to Funland, and shopping as well, with no problem. Perfect location on a quiet street. We already booked again for this coming summer. :)

Great rental and location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week at this rental in August. The location is great - far enough south from Rehoboth Ave that the beach is less crowded yet it's still easy to walk on the boardwalk to the main area from the house and beach. We never moved our car all week.

Beds were all comfy, and the house was clean, with plenty of room. Outside shower was great. My kids had fun in the yard and on the porch. The owner was very responsive before and during our stay. The street is quiet - no issues with noisy neighbors. Great stay!

Weekend Getaway

  • 4 of 5

What a great start to kick off the summer of 2016! My Boyfriend and I as well as two other couples left the city for a long weekend filled with relaxation, wining and dining, and walks on the beach. This charming beach cottage is filled with quaint vintage finishings, it brought back memories of traveling with my family when I was a kid. Undoubtedly the large screened in porch in the front was exceptional to sit back and catch up. This house couldn't be in a more idyllic neighborhood, filled with sounds of all ages embracing the short 2 block walk to the beach and the close downtown boardwalk area.

Located in the heart of Rehoboth Beach, this unique property gives guests the ability to walk or bike to the best attractions and activities in the area. The ocean and the resort's popular boardwalk can be reached in minutes! Local restaurants offer a variety of dining choices both casual and fancy. Again, these are a short walk from the cottage.
