About the property

Sleeps 10.

This ocean block property is a short 1/2 block to ocean. The cozy living room features a Cathedral Ceiling. In addition to the four bedrooms, there is a queen size sleeper couch in the living room and loft with an office. Each bedroom has its own private space with an attached porch, deck, or patio. The back yard has a large fenced-in area that is perfect for children or pets or for just relaxing.

The property used to be our personal residence so it is well maintained. This is a nice neighborhood that is relatively quiet as many in the area do not rent their properties. The owner lives one block away so we are available if there are any problems.

About Diane

We purchased our first home here in 1998 and we loved it so much, we bought two more! Now we live here permanently and rent the other two properties. We love meeting the people who visit here in summer and especially enjoy watching the little children play in the sun, sand, and surf.

Diane purchased this condo in 1998

Why Diane chose Delaware

Enjoy watching the sunrise and moonrise on the beach. Even your family dog can enjoy a vacation in dog-friendly Dewey where dogs are allowed on the beach after 5:30 p.m. and before 9:30 a.m. Dewey Beach Patrol also offers special assistance to the elderly or disabled. They will come to get you with a sand wheel chair that even has an umbrella.

What makes this condo unique

If you enjoy ocean waves, beautiful sunsets on the bay, and a cocktail on a deck with a light sea breeze, Dewey Beach is the place for you to vacation. Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the serene Rehoboth Bay, Dewey Beach is a favorite seaside resort for young and old alike. Only one mile long and two blocks wide, you can easily walk anywhere in town. With old fashioned cottages among more modern condos and single family homes, Dewey has a charm of its own.

It is a perfect place for a family vacation with activities for the children such as movies on the beach every Monday and bon fires complete with marshmallows to roast, on the beach every Wednesday evening in summer. With our rentals being a very short walk to the beach, it’s easy and convenient to take the kids back for a nap or lunch or to go to the bathroom!

Tetherball, volleyball, and skim boarding are allowed on the beach in specified areas and times.. With our beaches less crowded than neighboring Rehoboth and Lewes, there’s plenty of room to build sand castles and bury each other in the sand. And you’re sure to spot dolphins while sitting right on the beach. Sometimes they even jump out of the water, putting on a little show for the sunbathers. Dewey Beach even has its own playground on the bay side. Sunbathe at the beach in the afternoon and watch the sunset from the bay in the evening.

These are some of the reasons why many families return to Dewey year after year.

Roomy and close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Seven of us stayed here for an off-season beach weekend and found the house roomy and comfortable. It is only a few steps from the beach and within walking distance to everything in Dewey.

Another Perfect Dewey Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I try to get to Dewey Beach each year as a blissful escape from routine, often with a friend or 2, sometimes with family. As virtually every other reviewer notes, renting from and working with Diane is a dream, equaled only by the amenities offered at the property.

The condo is steps from the beach and also provides close access to bayside activities for anyone seeking more strenuous adventures--parasailing, jet-skis, kayaking, long-boarding and great birding and fishing are within just a few blocks.

There is plenty of comfortable space here and the floor plan allows for easy family time as well as privacy for guests, whether teenagers or different families vacationing together. We love the patio and balconies for morning coffee and afternoon refreshment after returning from the beach. The main floor is beautifully decorated and accommodating, the kitchen is very well stocked and nicely appointed, as are the bedrooms and baths. This is a great home-away-from home!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your wonderful comments. We certainly enjoy our repeat tenants and are pleased you had a great visit to Dewey again. Our little town is becoming a great location for people of all ages with lots of things to do. This property is especially nice for families and groups as it does offer privacy with the various decks, patios and porches off of each bedroom. And you can even the ocean waves from the decks at times.

Perfect spot for our family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We went to the beach for a family vacation - 4 adults, a toddler, and a dog. We had a few criteria - pet-friendly, 3+ BR, 2+ BA, internet, and close to the beach. This property had it all and was perfect for us.

Diane was a wonderful landlord. She was very responsive and helpful. This was in sharp contrast to the first property I tried to book. I picked open dates on the calendar, paid the money, and then received an email asking me if I could arrive a day later (why?????). When I said "no - the reason we picked your place was because you had the date available," our reservation was declined. But good for us, because that's how we ended up here.

We did have a maintenance issue while we were here, but it was taken care of, and Diane was again very responsive. This has not been my experience with all rentals, so it was very reassuring.

We're foodies, so a nice kitchen was important, too. There was plenty of room, and it was better stocked than most other rentals. Having a grill was nice, too, and you can't always find that in densely populated areas.

The property was clean and neat, there was plenty of parking (we had two ginormous vehicles), and the different levels gave our families plenty of privacy. I had to work a bit while I was there, so I really enjoyed having the separate loft work space. The internet was adequate for four adults doing some work as well as streaming our TV, so no issues there.

If you've never been to Dewey, it's a great beach. Close to the boardwalk and fun spots in Rehoboth, but so much quieter at the beach itself. The beach was a very short, 1/2 block walk. It's close enough you can stake out your spot at the beach and go back and forth throughout the day.

The house does have a lot of stairs, so if you have mobility issues, it's probably not the place for you. Otherwise I would recommend it highly.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at our ocean block condo in Dewey Beach. As you discovered, Dewey is a wonderful place with lots to do for people of all ages and for dogs as well. It is one of the most dog-friendly beaches in the U.S. especially off season when dogs are allowed on the beach at any time. And it's great to be able to take your dog on vacation and even to the beach with the family. We hope to see you back again soon..

Fantastic Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 7, 2 friends and our German Shepherd found our perfect vacation home here at Dewey. The house had several levels, so sleeping arrangements and alone time was never an issue. The kitchen, dining and living area were connected on the main level with plenty of room to lounge, play games and have dinner together.

One of the main issues I had when looking for a beach house were the number of bathrooms. This house had it covered! Our family's always had issues with all 6 people wanting to use a shower at the same time, so the house having three full bathrooms was HUGE!

The location was awesome, you really can't beat being as close as you are to the ocean, a couple bars/restaurants and the trolley station. You never have to worry about drinking and driving, traffic, or parking. Also....the house accommodates plenty of cars. Usually we've rented places in the past that only allow 1-2 cars MAX. Diane's home had room for 3 vehicles (4 if we didn't bring our massive van) and street parking in front of the condo was easy to get with the 24 hour parking permit meter.

Would love to visit again and highly recommend this location to anyone is a large group looking to enjoy quality time together.

Owner's Response: I'm pleased that you enjoyed our ocean block home so much. Yes, it does offer plenty of bathrooms and lots of privacy as each bedroom h as its own deck, patio, or screened porch. And parking for 3-4 cars--more than most rentals. It's a lovely location with a large back yard and close to beach and everything else. We hope you have you back again soon.

Great House In A Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to spend a week in Dewey with our three children and our grand children. This was the perfect place. The house was very spacious and accommodated our whole family easily. Everyone loved it. We were only steps to the beach which was great. Also the kids could walk down the street to the bay and rent paddle boards and jet ski's. You could walk to all the restaurants and bars in Dewey which was really nice because you didn't have to worry about driving or finding a parking spot. Also the Rehoboth beach boardwalk, which has great rides for children, was only minutes away by car. We had a wonderful vacation and would definitely recommend this rental property to anyone who would like to spend a vacation at the beautiful Delaware beaches. (Dewey / Rehoboth)

Owner's Response: We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at our spacious ocean block condo with a private deck, patio or porch off of every bedroom. And that you enjoyed all that Dewey Beach has to offer to our summer guests. It's a perfect place for families with free movies on the beach and bonfires two nights a week, yoga on the beach, and lots of activities for children and sports enthusiasts but as stand up paddle boarding and jet skis. We hope you will come back again soon. Diane

Beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect! The pictures were exactly what we found when we got there which was so many bedrooms and places to sleep. You are stones throw to the beach, have an awesome back deck, and super close to all the bars and restaurants. Would highly suggest this rental and will hopefully be returning the next time I am in Dewey!!!!
