About The Owner

AS young mothers in 1980 my best friend and I shared a week in this cottage and every summer following until we could afford a week each (then we both went for both) with our no longer 1998 tho old babes that owned it decided to sell and we feared they'd sell to a non-renting family SO we put our pennies together with my oldest by then an officier in the USMC and we purchased and continued to rent to the same families--now we are the old babes and the grandchildren of the first wave are renting from us..Won't you join us and visit our Green Granny Cottage for an old-fashioned summer vacation--a walk to the beach, bird watch, barbeque, catch fireflys and 'kick-the-can' on the cul-de-sac.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1998

Why The Owner chose Rehoboth Beach

This is ideal for walkers-Silver Lake is a wildbird refuge one street away, or at the end of our cul-de-sac--you can walk north on the beach and shortly reach the beginning of the Boardwalk that leads to the Amusements and Beach treats galore or you can walk south following the side walk and reach the Rusty Rudder for Sunset on the bay drinks, live music and a chance to dance reggae with a toddler, your teen or well as the tanned and the jolley trolley and the bike taxis go right by the street corner on which we sit.

What makes this cottage unique

The most wonderful benefit is the sea air filling up the 12 ft ceilinged rooms and the ceiling fans, and the 10 ft windows,screened (or shut for the central air) just providing a light feeling away from the ringing of phones (if you turn them off) and the demands of the non-family work a day world. Here you can shop the discounts or sit and read listening to the ocean or build sand castles or just walk the ocean is very restful and convenient enough to the activity centers, water parks, golf, bumper cars etc for the young and the restless to entertain themselves in safety protected by a walking constabulary which seems to employ ALL the local young people/teens not occupied as lifeguards or in the shops and restaurants. Its a treat to visit a simpler place and time.

This is a delightful beach cottage. Centrally located two blocks from the ocean and ten blocks from the heart of Rehoboth. We have spent many summers there and love the place more with every new mwmory we make...Our youngest now wants to bring her fiancee to see if he passes the beach test!

Fun near the beach

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the cottage to celebrate our French Exchange Student's 17th birthday. He also brought along another exchange student from Turkey. They had a terrific time because of the close proximity to the beach and board walk. Our dogs enjoyed the stay and even ventured to the beach for dog hours. We had the opportunity to meet Elizabeth and she was great. Good communication and very accommodating. We hope to stay again in the future!

Perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

This house was so charming and the location was incredible. We have a one year old and a dog so we needed a place that was child and pet friendly and this place was a perfect match. There was plenty of space for all of us. The location was key. It was only 3 blocks to the beach so we could walk from the house, and less than a five minute drive to downtown. We actually could have walked along the beach to get to the boardwalk in Rehoboth if we really wanted to. We were even a few minutes away from the Tot Lot near Silver Lake so our son could play.

The owner was amazing and did all she could to accommodate us, even replying to our texts while on vacation in Greece!

We would definitely stay here again!

our stay at the green granny

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. The house is very comfortable and a short walk to the beach. The best part was having no TV or internet for a whole week. We cooked in the large and well stocked kitchen every night.

The only drawback is the noise from the road... but we tuned it out after the first couple of days, and we would stay here again. Thanks, Elizabeth!

Quaint and Family Friendly

  • 4 of 5

I have visited this house numerous times. It's location is great if you want to go out in either Rehoboth or Dewey. Walking distance to many restaurants and bars. Not a far walk to the boardwalk. Plenty of space for a larger family. Close to the beach and the dogs love to go for walks in the morning. Such a cute historic beach house.

Relaxing Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

I love Rehoboth and have been visiting this property for several years now. The area is quiet and family friendly, but close enough to downtown areas for a fun night out. My dogs enjoy walking to the beach early in the morning, and afterwards they are tired enough to be calm and quiet for remainder of the day. Its also a great place for the kids; a safe area with lots of room to play after a day full of sun. The house itself is very spacious and beautiful... charming and historic (which lends so much character!). I hope that we have the opportunity to go back this summer!
