Overview

About the property

4BR/3.5 BA Beach Block TH, Pool, 4 Decks, Water Views of Ocean & Bay

“He always thought of the sea as 'la mar' which is what people call her in Spanish when they love her..."

- Ernest Hemingway

The Old Man and The Sea

Just steps to the beach, enjoy Ocean, Bay, pool, and town views with this charming beach block, three-story luxury townhouse in the center of Dewey Beach, the sun & fun capital of Delaware and one of the most vibrant, funky, and family-friendly beach towns on the Eastern Seaboard.

Wake to the smell of salt air mixed with the aroma of pastries and freshly baked bread from the bakery up the street. As you get used to flip-flops and tank-tops being considered formal wear, you'll be conveniently located to enjoy everything Dewey has to offer.

Located just a few houses down from the beach - whether you are looking to build sand castles on the beach or use your metal detector to search for buried treasure, shop til you drop, or just want to get your summer groove on (wink, wink/nod, nod), - look no further than 25 Read St. #5.

The House:

Four bedrooms (2 master suites), 3 1/2 bathrooms, plus outside shower, kitchen, and four decks. Enjoy both Ocean and Bay views from two of the decks and a screened porch on the bottom deck. From the back deck, watch your kids splashing in the community pool, while you sip a margarita and people-watch the scene on Dewey's main street.

The multiple decks are perfect for enjoying the amazing sunsets, watching the Fourth of July fireworks, or just relaxing as you drink a cold cocktail (or two or three). If you're lucky, you might even spy Elvis as there have been multiple sightings of The King in recent years.

This is one of the few communities in Dewey Beach that offers a large in-ground pool. The Atlantic Ocean is just a few homes away, restaurants right around the corner, and just a block away is Rehoboth Bay (with a bayside sandy beach) where you can kayak, wind surf, and paddleboard amongst wildlife and the wonders of nature. Hey, is that an otter winking at you!? It just may be.

Walk, bicycle, or take the kids for ice cream. Ride the quaint Jolly Trolley (clang, clang, clang went the trolley!) to one of the many fine dining establishments in nearby Rehoboth. The Tanger Outlets, which offer tax-free shopping, are only a short five minute drive from the beach house.

Free Wi-Fi is provided throughout the house (great for those brooding teenagers.) There's a large flat screen TV in the Living Room to watch the ballgame. The full-size kitchen, dining table, and breakfast bar make it easy to eat-in when you want to.

The unit is available for full weeks in-season or select weeks and weekends off-season. Two covered parking spaces are provided and there are guest spaces in the community lot. The unit also includes all new bathrooms, brand new beds (some with pillow-top mattress!), new A/C unit, original artwork, and a washer/dryer for laundry.

Many recent renovations and upgrades!

Ocean beach a short walk away!

  • 5 of 5

We were 6 adults and one child, and this property fit the bill for us. It is in walking distance to lots of restaurants and the Jolly Trolley to go up to Rehobeth. Appears that this unit as well as the condo complex has recently gone through some renovation. Very well done.

Had a great trip with the family & another family. Condo is in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Great location with easy access to the beach. Condo has nice amenities & everything in good condition. Nice little decks as well. Had a few issues getting fridgerator working well & some of the floors were a little dirty upon our arrival. We lost power first day visiting (Whole block lost power in a storm) but Mike was very responsive during the outage checking in on applicances & A/C working. He also quickly sent a handyman out to look at fridge. All in all, a very good experience & would recommend to those looking at two family locations. Very convinent walking distance to all shops, restaurants & nightlife in Dewey.

Wonderful property in great location!

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about our stay here. Mike was wonderful throughout the process and the property exceeded all expectations. The home is wonderfully maintained, with top end features throughout. Our group enjoyed the short walk to the beach and all Dewey attractions, as well as the covered, private parking. Overall, we could not have asked for a better location for our week at the beach. Thanks!

Fabulous Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with a group of friends for the week of 4th of July and this was the perfect place for us. Very modern townhouse compared to other beach rentals I've stayed in and you couldn't ask for a better location. I think we needed our cars maybe once the entire week. You're steps for the beach, restaurants, nightlife etc. Great deck space throughout, especially on the Read Street side where our group spent a lot of time enjoying some drinks and people watching. The house also VERY comfortably sleeps 8 and having three showers was definitely a luxury that most other properties I looked at didn't have. Mike was extremely easy to work with and incredibly accommodating throughout, constantly keeping us updated on our stay.

Can't recommend this property enough. Will definitely be looking to book again next Summer.

Perfect Dewey Beach place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here--clean, airy, updated decor, comfy bed, lots of light--just a pleasure to hang out both inside and the decks. Wonderful original art--you can tell the owners put a lot of thought into the place. Best of all, we couldn't get over how close it is to the beach--just to the end of the very short block---fantastic! We also enjoyed walking to the end of the street in the other direction, to the bay side, where there's a quiet little bay "beach." A short walk to all of the bars and restaurants at the end of a day on the beach is so convenient and enjoyable. Can't wait to stay here again!

Fantastic location/impeccable place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a long weekend and loved it! The place has been recently updated and everything is very clean and comfortable. It's clear the owners care for the place well. It's perfectly located on the beach block near to all the action in Dewey but quiet enough as well. We didn't use the outdoor pool since it was November, but it's right out back and a rarity in Dewey!
