Guestbook comments from the owner

Four adults and three dogs all loved our short time at your house - the beach was perfect, not crowded, easy to walk too, and dog friendly. The house was so comfortable, easy to live in, and had all the comforts of home. We liked that it was a quieter area of the Delaware beaches and we could walk to the bay side in just a minute for lovely sunsets.

Thank you again.

Great location, I love fall at the beach when the crowds are gone. Plenty of good restaurants open.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing 5 days here, can see the ocean from the deck and hear it all the time. The cottage had everything we needed. It was the best place for our 2 golden doodles as the ocean is only steps away! Valerie the owner stopped by and had a nice conversation about the property and the history of the area as it has been in her family for years. Nice rental for a couple or small family as there are only 2 bedrooms.

Nice little cottage in a very quiet area.

  • 5 of 5

Place was clean despite dogs being allowed. Plenty of windows to let in light. Nice outdoor deck area with gate. So close to the beach that I left my shoes at home. Great place to bring your dog on vacation. We will definitely be back!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Had a great stay in Dewey. Dogs LOVED it.

Comfortable house close to every thing I wanted.

With covered parking (mostly) was able to leave car with roof down the entire stay (even tho I didn't need it.)

A little torn about extolling the rentals virtues too much. I want to be able to come back again, soon.

Can't beat beach-block!

  • 5 of 5

Cute, clean cottage steps from the beach. Perfect for the three of us. The cottage is amazingly quiet, too, considering its proximity to all the noisy nightlife. Highly recommend!

Owner's Response: I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay. Yes, it definitely helps that we are close to the southern end of Dewey Beach, quite a few blocks from the noisy nightlife. I think being well back from the street, down our private driveway also helps keep things quiet. We look forward to having you as guests in the future. And don't forget, for the ultimate in a quiet stay, our cottage is available to book during the fall and winter.

Everything is easy!!!! Leave your car parked.

  • 5 of 5

This property is modern, very clean and very close to the beach. We had 3 adults and our dog and it was perfect. The deck is great to sit out on and the beach is only 2 houses away. You can actually see the ocean between the houses. Dog friendly restaurants are a short walk and you are also near sunsets on the bay. The owners quickly respond to questions. Wouldn't change a thing!!!!

A Perfect Fall Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience renting a vacation home with our 2 beagles, and I cannot believe we didn't do it sooner! The house was immaculate and perfectly maintained. The entrance to the beach was a mere three houses away and since we went in the off season we pretty much had it to ourselves the whole time. We're runners, and there are so many great places to go for runs between Dewey, Rehoboth and Lewes. The property is not only close to the beach, but also fantastic dining, parks and tons of outlets (that second bedroom came in handy for our shopping spree swag!) The owners were very responsive and even immediately answered an email that my husband sent them while we were there.

If you're on the fence about renting this property, don't be. I honestly can say there is nothing that we didn't love about our week on Dickinson Street! We will definitely be back.
