About the Owner

When we first bought 217 Rodney Street, the house was abandoned and over grown. But the structure was sound. Over the years, we have lovingly updated and expanded the home without losing the architecture we loved so much. We have raised our kids here and entertained many beloved friends and family members. Our Rehoboth beach home is absolutely our 'pure happy place.' We love it here. We hope you will too.

Great beach house for a gang

  • 5 of 5
My family and friends spent a week in the Crane's beautiful home. Had four senior citizens and they needed first floor bedrooms. Both got a terrific room with a bathroom and it was fab. The younger folks stayed upstairs and enjoyed the privacy.

The house is as as it is. Lovely place. It was clean and well appointed with decoration and plenty of kitchen dishes, pots and pans. Also loved access to a washer/ dryer. The hot tub and back yard are really nice. We all liked the two screened in porches- great for late night chats.

Best of all for me was the fact that the home allowed us to bring our two dogs. They loved it - back yard and screened in porches.

The ocean and board walk are 1/4 mile walk - nice. We went every night for a walk on the board walk.

Thanks Cindy and Tony - we will be back.

Perfect house and location for family reunion

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 13 including 4 children under 9 had the best vacation ever in Rehoboth and this setting contributed greatly to the success. My sister and I grew up on the Eastern Shore and we wanted to come back to the area to revisit some old traditions with our kids and their kids. We traveled from Oregon and Vermont and it was well worth the trip. This property was perfect for our needs. There was plenty of room for people to do their own thing. Arts and crafts in the little house out back, wonderful meals on the back patio (we couldn't get enough of the great seafood), reading in the hammock, we did it all. We loved the beautiful walks to the beach and into town, everything was totally accessible and easy. My family is already talking about doing a repeat visit in a few years. Cindy and her husband were very easy to deal with and responded quickly when we had a small plumbing problem. They clearly love their beach house and now we do too!

A stress free holiday

  • 5 of 5
With seven children under 13 and eight adults we were very pleased with the 'elbow room' this house provided. Plenty of beds and bathrooms, porches and patios to spread out and relax. The private patio off the master downstairs was perfect for the Grandparents to have some quiet time! The house is well maintained and was clean on our arrival. The kids loved the bunk room and the adults loved the hot tub. We would be very happy to stay again.

Beautiful house and a great vacation

  • 5 of 5
This was our 2nd year renting this spacious house for an extended family gathering. The house is beautifully decorated, especially for a beach rental. The house remains clean and well maintained. We spent lots of time enjoying the screened in front porch and the large back patio. The neighborhood is quiet, safe and pleasant for walking. The owner was very pleasant to deal with. We look forward to returning again. Thanks for another great vacation.

Lovely & Amazing

Just got back this afternoon from Rehoboth, and wanted to thank you and your family for allowing me to stay in your home. I was in town for a client retreat, but because my dog sitter and backup were unavailable, I ended up needing to find a place that I could bring my dogs. Traveling with dogs can really be hit or miss. But your house was perfect.

The photos suggest a spacious, clean, nicely decorated home. The photos are accurate, but they do not come close to capturing the charm and comfort of this wonderful house, inside and out. The screened-in porches, large, wraparound backyard, and beautiful landscaping made the outside of the house nearly as great as the inside. I almost lost count of the rooms, all of which were so charming. Great walkable neighborhood, and just an easy short walk to the beach.

Lovely and amazing. I just wish we could have stayed longer.

This house is awesome!

  • 5 of 5
This house was great it was super clean and very roomy, a great place for a big family or even multiple families. Its a short walk to the beach and the yard is big with a large in ground hot tub. The back patio was so nice for evenings with the fire pit. We liked it so we have already booked it for our summer vacation. This was a definite find for a beach vacation.
