About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

This spacious two-story home will accommodate multi-families in five bedrooms, 2.5 baths plus a hot and cold private outdoor shower. The home is tastefully appointed with Tommy Bahama style elegant furnishings and décor – yet it’s meant to be lived in and enjoyed. Guests will love the lower-level open floor plan with two large living areas. The modern open kitchen has granite countertops and all new appliances. The island bar seats 5 and opens to the first living room. This is a fabulous place to gather while cooking a big family dinner or in the evening for cocktails with friends. A beautiful wood dining table spans the two living areas and can comfortably seat twelve. There is whitewashed flooring in the kitchen and a rich hardwood floors in the first living area. There is also a half bath on this level.

The second living area has 2 comfy sofas and several chairs--a 52-inch wall mounted flat screen TV. There is off-white Sisal style carpeting in this room and an enclosed laundry area at the rear of the room with stack washer/dryer. This living area spans the back of the house and looks out into the very private back yard with mature evergreens and lovely landscaping.

There is a 14x14 screened porch with a Brazilian cherry sofa and love seat. In addition there are two comfy rockers and a cottage-style white washed dining table that seats 6. The vaulted porch ceiling is painted with dreamy pastel blue and white clouds set above the ceiling fan. There is also a tv on the porch. This is truly a special place to retreat at the end of the day. The landscaped yard has several lounge chairs and additional patio furniture. It is fully enclosed with 6 foot privacy fencing – a truly enchanting place to relax in the evenings. In the mornings you can enjoy your first cup of coffee under the shade of the trees or on the screened porch while watching the outdoor wall mounted porch TV.

The second floor has a large open center hall with hardwood floors – all five bedrooms are on this floor. There are two bedrooms that share a large full bath with shower in the front of the house. Each room has a high-quality bedding (queen and king), lovely furnishings, ceiling fans, large closets and newly finished hardwood floors. There are three additional bedrooms at the back of the house. These bedrooms share a large double vanity bathroom with tub and shower. One room has a queen bed. The two additional rooms are what we call “kids” rooms – both can sleep three children depending on their ages. One room has a queen and set of bunk beds while the other has a full size and twin bed. There is an additional sleeping mattress under the queen bed that can be pulled out if needed. (rooms, 1) King, 2) Queen, 3) King, 4) Queen and bunk bed, 5) Full and twin

Amenities include large capacity washer, dryer, dishwasher, microwave, one full refrigerator and a mini-refreshment refrigerator in the kitchen, stereo/DVD/CD, Comcast cable TV and high speed wireless internet, 52” wall mounted flat screen TV in main living area, one outdoor TV on porch and in 3 bedrooms and a gas BBQ grill. Two-zone central air and heat, outside hot/cold private shower, off-street parking for 3 cars. The house is a 2500 square foot split duplex (two homes share one extra large lot with one common wall but all outdoor spaces are private). Ours is the rear unit with private back yard. Tenant provides towels, linens, bath mats, soap and paper products.

Wonderful property within steps to Dewey Beach.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property within steps to Dewey Beach. Beautifully appointed and extremely comfortable for multi-family stays. Plenty of space to enjoy various family activities. Rare to find outdoor space to enjoy while you cook on the grill.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The location of the house is fantastic, with the beach on one side and bars/restaurants on the other. The house itself is open and spacious and wonderfully decorated. We really enjoyed relaxing in the shaded backyard and the screened porch. Rich, the owner, was responsive and accommodating. We're looking forward to coming back.

The place was awesome. Plenty of space and room for all of us. I liked the Kitchen the best, plenty

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of space, we loved the back porch screened in. Also seating area outside. About a minute away from the beach, can't beat that!

Fantastic Long Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for my husband's 40th birthday celebration! Rich was great to work with- very knowledgeable and accommodating. We loved the decor and the open feel to the living spaces. The outdoor area was great to relax at night- there is a screened porch and additional outdoor seating area. The kitchen was stocked with everything. The bathrooms are nothing fancy, but they get the job done. We hired Sheets at the Beach to provide the bed linens, which I would definitely do again! Location is awesome- beach on one side, restaurants and bars on the other...what more could you ask for??

My extended family and I rented this property twice now. We could not be happier with the rental or the arrangements made with Rich. Everything was perfect. Great rental for a relaxing week at the best beach ever , Dewey . So close to restruants , trolley , and the ocean. Don't hesitate to rent . Many memories just waiting to be made. 👍👍👍👍

This is hands down the best beach home we stayed at. It is clean, nicely furnished and the owners are incredible. We will definitely stay there again.
