About Brian and Beth Bruffey

My family has been coming to the Dewey and Rehoboth beaches for over 40 years. Growing up with 4 brothers and 1 sister in Silver Spring, Maryland, our parents gave us the opportunity to build and enjoy an incredible amount of memorable experiences at the shore. My parents, along with my older brother, currently live in Rehoboth. One of my younger brothers also owns a cottage 4 houses down on Carolina St. We're incredibly fortunate to have this home and the opportunity to share it with others to enjoy all of the fun and amazing experiences with family and friends.

Brian and Beth Bruffey purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Brian and Beth Bruffey chose Dewey Beach

We purchased this property primarily to provide the same opportunities my parents provided for us over the past 40 years to our family of three young men. We're anticipating 123 Carolina will be their vacation destination for their families for the next 40+ years as well! This area is consistently recognized as one of the top vacation places in the country. How can you not love Dewey?

What makes this cottage unique

The convenient, 2 block walking access to the beach is fantastic. You can even hear the waves crashing on the beach from the porch. Very dog friendly area and walking distance to many of the Dewey Beach and Rehoboth activities. Featuring great restaurants, family atmosphere, boardwalk, shops, fishing/crabbing, summer night-life activities, and of course, the sun and fun at the beach, Dewey & Rehoboth have everything for a wonderful, restful and relaxing vacation.

Dewey Beach Clean Cozy Cottage 2 Blocks From The Beach! Best 5 Star Experience

Second stay at EXCELLENT Dewey Beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this wonderful cottage. After many rentals in different states this is our favorite. Top reasons for our five star rating:

As Advertised - Online pictures and descriptions are accurate

Well Stocked - Makes packing/shopping much easier - coffee, soap, trash bags, plastic wrap, etc

Cleanliness - THOROUGH cleaning after each guest

Single Level - No stairs for our aging Black Labrador

Location- Great neighborhood, 2 blocks to the beach allows for easy trips back and forth. Walking distance to restaurants/shops in Rehoboth and Dewey

Insurance instead of Security Deposit - Love the convenience of paying for insurance instead of dealing with a security deposit as in other rentals


We love the screened porch which allows for relaxation rain or shine, we've already started planning for our trip next Fall

Owner's Response: Thank you, Juli, for taking the time and providing a glowing review. So glad we were able to make things right for you with another round of unfortunate weather and the construction across the street. Your insight into a couple of items that needed to be addressed were extremely helpful so we could take care of them prior to the next guests arrival. Thank you again!

great house, perfect for our needs.

  • 4 of 5

I was really happy with the property. I liked the fact the owners stocked it with paper products and cleaning supplies so we didn't have to bring them with us. Quiet neighborhood and close to the beach.

The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was while we were there they tore down the house across the street. For 3 days, we were greeted at 8 am with a back hoe tearing down and cleaning up the house. We actually found it fascinating, but after the 3rd day we were over it. This could be a problem with renters in the future when the new house is being built. Otherwise we had a terrific time. Weather was perfect.

Owner's Response: Hi Andrea, thank you very much for the positive review. We're very sorry about the timing of the house renovation across the street. Very unfortunate, but just like weather, we don't have any control over the type of event. Thank you again for staying at our cottage and hope to have you back in 2017. Cheers, Brian

Great Beach Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family's beach trip this summer. Great location - easy walk to the beach, quiet neighborhood street, close to restaurants and shops. The house had everything we needed - nice new fully-equipped kitchen, screened in porch complete with speakers, gas grill, buggy and chairs to take to the beach. The outdoor shower (a real shower with privacy, not just an outdoor shower head) was a big help for getting all the sand off when we got back from the beach! It has the character of a classic cozy beach cottage with all the modern amenities anyone could ask for.

Second time in this cottage, and all the amenities from last year remain!

  • 5 of 5

Another great summer vacation with family and friends! The location is great, the house is comfortable, well-stocked, and wonderful for hosting groups. Plenty of seating areas inside and out. The house also has ample offstreet parking in the quiet neighborhood of Rehoboth by the Sea.

The owners Brian and Beth (as always) are responsive and helpful, and truly want guests to feel at home. Would absolutely rent from them again!

Well-Equipped, Cute, and Convenient Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week long stay in August. The cottage is on a lovely street just two blocks from the beach. The street is ideally located between the towns of Dewey and Rehoboth. I found the owners to be incredibly responsive to my queries and very attentive to the service they provide. The home is well equipped and very comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay and would rent again without any reservations.
