Delaware— Dewey Beach

This is where vacationers go for days filled with lots of sun, nice weather, thrilling water adventures along ocean beaches, and nights filled with partying. Boating, parasailing, wake boarding, water skiing, windsurfing, and dolphin watching are popular activities. You will find plenty of nightclubs with live music and lots of dancing. Don’t miss the serene experience of watching sunset views of the bay. Enjoy Monday Movie nights on the beach, grab a Jolly Trolley shuttle to Rehoboth Beach to stroll the boardwalk, and make the most of tax-free shopping at the Tanger Outlets, according to Visit Delaware

PLEASE NOTE: OCCUPANCY IS STRICTLY ENFORCED. WE ARE NOT A PARTY HOUSE, A GATHERING PLACE OR A HANGOUT. ONLY THOSE NAMED ON THE AGREEMENTS MAY BE ON THE PREMISES. VIOLATIONS TO THIS WILL RESULT IN EVICTION! Sorry I have to post this but due to a few reservations that understate how many guests and then just having them show up I want to be sure everyone is aware of the rules.

About Dell Tush

My husband and I purchased the four unit apartment building from my in laws in 2001 because we wanted our grandchildren to enjoy summers at the beach just as our children had done. We live in one apartment and rent the other three to our summer guests. My husband and I have been married for 47 years and actually honeymooned in the first floor apartment. We have three wonderful children and four beautiful granddaughters. Being very family oriented, we completely renovated to make our apartments as comfortable and inviting as possible. We want our guests to return year after year because they enjoy it so much.

Dell Tush purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Dell Tush chose Dewey Beach

When my in laws decided to sell, our children encouraged us to buy the place to keep our tradition of Dewey Beach going and to keep it in the family. Our goal is to eventually pass it on to our own children so they will enjoy many more years at the beach. Dewey Beach is a wonderful unique place unlike what you'll find in Rehoboth or Bethany.

What makes this apartment unique

Relax in style and enjoy all the comforts of home. Our convenient location is great for small children and our older guests since there are no roads to cross and it is so convenient for nap time, lunchtime, or bathroom breaks. Spend time in our unique backyard. This is one of the largest backyards in Dewey Beach..

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house, in a perfect location and very close to the beach! The house is larger and more spacious than the pictures make it look, which was great. The backyard is one of the best parts of the house with grills, seating, and fire pit! The host was absolutely wonderful. We really enjoyed our stay and would stay again!

Owner's Response: It was great meeting you all and we are so glad you enjoyed staying with us. I am very glad that our rental met all of your needs and exceeded your expectations. Our huge backyard is a plus since most properties in Dewey do not have big outdoor areas. The yard and the fire pit are always enjoyed by our guests Everything was in great shape when you left and we certainly hope you will choose to stay with us again in the future. I would highly recommend you as guests to anyone. Thanks again and we hope to see you again!!

Amazing location - SO close to the beach, amazing hospitality from the on-site hosts, amazing backyard for campfires and cookouts.

Didn't give it a 5 only because not newest of facilities, but well-maintained, nevertheless.

Very glad we stayed there - would like to do so again.

Owner's Response: Hi Dan, We are glad you had a good time while here. We are sorry that you felt we only deserved a four star review because we are not a new facility. I hope my listing did not give the impression that we are newly built since it does state that we purchased the property in 2001. Unfortunately we can't do anything about not being a NEW facility. All we can do is continually upgrade, buy new furnishings when needed to try and make it a great place to stay. The kitchen was completely redone with new granite countertops and all new appliances two years ago. The LG washer and dryer were also bought new the end of last year. The mattresses were replaced last year and we replace our comforters sets often. The living room furniture was bought new this year and the master bedroom and bath were freshly painted in the Spring. We work very hard to ensure our guests have the best experience we can provide. We continually get complements on how clean our places are and have each apartment cleaned between each guest. We hope you did have an enjoyable experience otherwise and we really enjoyed meeting you.

Super comfortable, Fun, Well maintained, An absolute gem

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here on Memorial Day Weekend 2017 and it exceeded every expectation we had. It was right on the beach and in the center of dewey, right near all the restaurants, shops, and bars. The apartment itself was cozy and so nicely decorated. The real treat was the backyard, which featured two powerful outdoor showers, a campfire pit, and three gas grills. We were able to have a little mini barbecue and everything! The landlords are absolutely excellent, very respectful of privacy but right upstairs if you need anything. They even helped us get a fire started. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are looking for a great place for your next beach vacation!

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing us as your vacation rental. You guys were great and we'd love to have you return. You left everything in great condition and that is so appreciated. We loved meeting everyone and you were all great. Please come see us again or as my Southern upbringing says, "Ya'll come back now, ya hear!!"

Great location with friendly, helpful owners.

  • 4 of 5

Well maintained older property with a fenced in area for the dogs.

The property is in a convenient, walk-able location.

I appreciated the owner allowing three family dogs as many properties only allow two.

Great vacation stay!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with a group of friends at this beautiful Dewey home over Memorial Day Weekend. It was absolutely beautiful and only steps from the beach. The house was clean, spacious and our hosts were very kind. The backyard is definitely the best part of the house. It's very spacious, has an awesome fire-pit, mosquito torches, benches, grills, and more. Great for a weekend barbecue. The bedrooms are small but clean and very nice. The kitchen is renovated.

Most important, the house is only steps from restaurants and bars in Dewey. I'd go back in a second.

Fun fact: Dell is the former mayor of Dewey Beach, DE!

Owner's Response: Memorial weekend can be crazy in Dewey and we hold our breath until it is over but this group was great. They enjoyed themselves but were respectful of the property. They absolutely loved the yard and spent a lot of time there. They left the house like they found it. We would welcome them back anytime.

Great Family place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We found this place here on VRBO!

We vacationed in this apartment for 2 years with our 1 child age 7, 2 dogs a Yellow Lab and a Pomeranian; 2009 & 2010 who all love the beach. The owners are great, friendly, helpful and it was nice to know when we need them they were right there. The house is 3 buildings from the beach and this unit is not blocked but those houses. “AWESOME”! Being so close to the beach was great and the view from the living room apartment is of the beach and ocean. The new renovations made in the last couple of years are very done with a tasteful eye. The only thing lacking was a deck but we loved going out into the back yard to use the grill provided, sit by the fire (I think they even provided the wood). The outside showers after long days at the beach are wonderful they even have hot and cold water. They provided everything we needed to cook and a hose to wash off the dogs after walks on the beach and to clean off our beach chairs. The apartment only has 1 wall unit air-conditioner in the living room but don’t let that scare you; it was powerful enough to do a good job in the bedrooms that also have ceiling fans. The bathroom is a bit snug and the mattresses I would have preferred to be more firm but still this is a comfortable place to stay for a week or more. The other 2 units they have in this house will give you other great options to enjoy. Like the first floor unit if you need larger spacious accommodations, central air-condition easy access to the back yard deck, only one step up to get to and one step down to the front street where you can park. Each unit has 1 parking place but you can get a weekly or daily permit and park right there out side your unit with one or two cars. The unit in the back has a deck overlooking the back yard to keep an eye on your kids from the unit. Another great thing to say about this place is it is located on Rodney where many locals own and come with their families. You will even see the custom home made lemon-aid stand just up the road and across the street operated but the owner’s grandchildren when they come to visit. The Tush’s make great host; I would definitely recommend you give this unit or their others a try. Enjoy!

Owner's Response: Our goal is to provide the best accomodations in Dewey Beach. We work very hard to upgrade and keep our rentals as clean and comfortable as possible. We think of our guests as family and look forward to seeing them each and every year. We encourage our guests to let us know what is needed that we are not providing and then do our best to see that it is available for them. When we became pet friendly we did have a few concerns not knowing how the pets would behave. I am pleased to say we have had very few problems. We have found that guests who want to travel with their pets are very responsible pet owners. They don't want to have to kennel their pets and are very appreciative of the fact they can bring them with them. Our pet fee is cheaper than having to board them plus they are with their owners.. We are very family oriented and even offer beach toys for our young guests to use while here. We welcome families and also singles who are responsible and will respect our property and guests. Give us a try and become part of our extended family.

This is one of the largest vacation rentals all on one floor with no stairs or steps in Dewey Beach. We have one of the largest sandy beach backyards in Dewey Beach. Enjoy sitting around the fire pit in the evening, roasting Smores or just relaxing under the stars. The stars have never looked so beautiful. Horse shoes on site.
