South of France in Dewey Beach

Bedrooms 5
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

A classic beach house updated without losing its soul. Two short blocks from the beach on New Orleans Street in the heart of Dewey. Think Provence meets southern Delaware and you'll have a sense of the unique and somewhat quirky feel and decor of the place.

The best features, in the owner's opinion, are the screened front porch and the kitchen. You get ocean and bay breezes...and the mosquitoes don't bother you while you're cocktailing. French doors open from the kitchen and dining areas onto the screened porch, thereby bringing the outdoors in. The kitchen is big and modern and fully equipped. Great for entertaining.

This isn’t a rental full of cheap furnishings. The owner's philosophy is to provide a nice place and expect people to take care of it. This means no graduation parties. If you want to raise hell, go elsewhere.

Please note: Owner doesn't provide linens and towels for this rental.

Please note: Check-in is 3pm and Check-out is 10am. These times provide sufficient time to clean/turn over the house and ensure everything is ready for guests.

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

I was very impressed with this house in many ways. For one, it was very clean and well taken care of. As soon as I walked in, I was pleased with the layout and how much space the house had. I honestly don't think the pictures do it justice. With the ten people we had staying there for the week, at no point did it feel "crammed". In addition, there were new AC units installed which allowed the house to stay cool during the hot weather and kept us comfortable all week. It was a refreshing place to be after a day at the beach. Also, the house was properly equipped with dishes, utensils, washer/dryer, grill, and cleaning products to maintain the quality of the place throughout the week.

Another great aspect was the location. It was conveniently located near all the main bars and a short walk to the beach. There was also a convenient store within a block of the house so it made it easy to grab necessary house items at any time.

To top it all off, the owner was very nice and easy to work with throughout the whole process. He was easy to contact and very accommodating.

I would highly recommend renting this house, and I would definitely consider renting this house again if I go back to Dewey.

Love this House!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this house, from the way it is set back from the street behind a hedge to the lovely furnishings to the many reading and relaxing nooks to the kitchen that we wanted to cook (and DID cook) a series of fabulous meals.

From the moment we pulled up, we were enamored and it was barely 36 hours in before we started talking about dates for next year. The location was ideal (6 minutes to the beach, 4.5 minutes to Jimmy's), the accommodations sweet, the ample number of beach chairs appreciated and the hospitality of the owners valued.

Cannot wait to go back!

The Perfect House

  • 5 of 5

I planned a girls getaway over Labor Day and this house couldn't have been more perfect. The common areas are beautifully decorated when you walk in and the five bedrooms offered lots of space. The house is truly a gem and the location couldn't have been more perfect. The beach is right across the street and there are so many restaurants and bars a very short walk away. I would definitely recommend staying at this house!

Beautiful home! Wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

This home is an absolute treasure! And the kitchen is so great for cooking that you don't want to go out to eat! Had an absolutely wonderful week at the beach. The house is literally two SHORT blocks to the beach. The street was quiet at night and being at this home was such a delight! Cannot say enough good things about the house. Took my two daughters, son-in-law and three grandchildren and there was plenty of room for everyone to roam, relax and play. Thanks so much for a memorable vacation.

A great Dewey Beach vacat...

  • 5 of 5

A great Dewey Beach vacation house...pleasingly free of tacky beach ornaments. Our mix of ages, interests and opinions was served well - and the open kitchen made preparing food a social event. Hedge row privacy was a successful barrier between life on the porch and cars and/or noodling passerbys.
