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

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. 👍👍👍👍

Amazing place

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.

Beloved Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Rehoboth/Dewey area for several years. The house is beautiful and comfortably accommodates a large family and several kids. We love the back porch, private yard area, and the short distance to the beach! We look forward to this wonderful week each year and love the house.

Wonderful house - responsive owners

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this house each year for the past three years. The house is extremely well kept, with nice living spaces, a back yard area and a screened in porch, which makes it easy to find a spot for socializing and relaxing. The bedrooms are fairly spacious - allowing for families with young children to fit a cot or pack and play easily in the space. Every time we have had a (MINOR) issue, the owners have taken care of it immediately. There is easy access to the beach and it is a nice walk into the town of Rehoboth, as well. We will definitely continue to use this as our vacation rental.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

Let me begin with the owners. They are very accommodating and easy to work with.

Our family has been renting this house for 3 years now. It is a beautiful and relaxing place to call home for one week. There is plenty of room for our growing bunch. The bedrooms are equipped with comfy beds and are spacious. Having 3 bathrooms is a plus too. There are several spaces for our needs. Having a screened in porch and backyard has been great. Many card games, baseball games and conversations ave taken place here.

The location to the beach makes this a very convenient home for our family. At the end of the week, our family discusses future plans and it is a unanimous THUMBS UP. See you next year Bella Mar.

Beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house last summer and forgot to leave a review. It is a lovey house. There is a private enclosed back patio with TV, frig,comfy couches and dining table. One of our favorite places after a long day at the beach. The outdoor shower was a bonus. There were a few minor issues which were resolved immediately by Rich and caused us no inconvenience. We had a wonderful week at the beach, which was only steps away. Thank you so much and we hope to see you again this year at another of your houses.
