About Caren

We purchased this from the family, it was the site of a grand old home that started as a hunting clubhouse for a Baltimore Sailmaker, thought to be designed by an Architect named Stanford White. It was destroyed in a 3 day Nor' Easter in 1962, all except for the old 116 year old summer kitchen. That has been preserved as the master bedroom. My grandmother's old house is across the street, and we have some of the furniture from that house, built in 1927, including the rocker, a mirror, and some wicker.

Caren purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Caren chose The Pines

It is breathtaking, has history, and no one has been able to see the ocean from there in over 50 years until now. It is a freestanding cottage with breathtaking views, privacy but at the top of the boardwalk, just a block up, with nothing blocking the view, still walkable to town restaurants, bookstores, cafe's , galleries , gyms, bicycle rental and local events. Walk to Funland, lake Girar for a little sunfishing, tot playground and more.

Watch the sunrise from the Oceanfront decks with your morning coffee, see the porpoises, the boats, paint a picture from your deck.

Bike to Old Lewes, Gordon's Pond or the Bluffs of Cape Henlopen. Come for Fall jazz, fest, Sea Witch, fall Arts Festival, Christmas, New Years or your special Holidays. Even in the rain it is cozy sitting by the fire overlooking the ocean.

You will not find the privacy, accessibility to the beach and boardwalk with the Ocean Front Sound and Views anywhere else in Rehoboth.

It is Unique.

What makes this cottage unique

The swings on the porch are hand made from an old Maine Pattern. There are many whimsical features you will discover in the house, but most of all, you can hear the waves at night in all the bedrooms, and even feel you are on the beach while in the house. In the winter it is cozy sitting by the gas fireplace. Off season is a very special time too, often not another soul in site on the beach. Year round, the sunrise over the ocean, best seen from the second floor, is spectacular.

Beautiful house, so relaxing, great location

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing in RB for over 15 years, always renting a 2 bed/2 bath condo on the boardwalk in the past. This year we invited our two kids to each bring a friend and we rented 38 Surf Ave. What a difference it is to rent a home as lovely as this one! The screened porches on both levels were well appointed and so relaxing, we gathered with many other family members several times that week on that upper porch, especially. The house is clean, well-stocked and has many personal touches that are very charming. It was so nice to be able to park right on the driveway, ride bikes from the garage, shower off the sand in the outdoor shower, and be able to grill food instead of eating out every meal. The last thing the owner said to me as I took the key and she left the house was, "This is YOUR house this week...enjoy!" And we most certainly did. Thank you for a wonderful week!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the wonderful review! It is so great to hear you enjoyed the house in the way we hoped and tried to plan for! We also love the peaceful way it feels to sit amd watch the waves and water from the decks and the easy come and go from the driveway for the beach and bikes. We hope everyone who comes feels as much part of this place as we do. Come again soon,

Great location across from the beach!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed this rental. Location to the beach was great, and it was close enough to the boardwalk that with a short walk we could enjoy all the fun. The porches on this property are the perfect place to start and end each day.
