Description of bay view is a little deceiving. Yes you can see the bay if you walk under the owners house which is on stilts on the bay. The property however was very clean and just about every amenity you could think of. The location is great. Its a very quiet street. The owner was very friendly and helpful. There was a problem with one of the toilets running and the bathtub and owner had plumber come out immediately. I will definitely stay again.

Firstly, the house itself was in good condition and we were pleased with the set up so I will say that.
However, the property is located on the same piece of land as the landlord so you get daily visits from her (86 year old woman) despite the usual 24 hour warning that is the legal requirement. This causes a variety of instances where whatever you are doing doesn't coincide with what the landlord wants. She had a couple complains of the windows were open (the AC was off) we were told to keep the AC on, Strange. We were also told to clean the grill a couple days before we were leaving. We informed her the gas ran out and her response was well you must have left it on all night. (It died while we were using it so this wasn't the case). It was just a bad experience and was thoroughly uncomfortable for all parties involved. Overall the customer service was poor. We didn't have any parties and at most we had 2 additional people in the house at any given time. Apparently this is a problem. So if you are young and not going to bed before 11pm then I suggest you look elsewhere.
To the owners; if you have such a problem with the way people treat your place then don't rent it out; its that simple, no one is ever going to take care of your property as well as you. I have first hand experience, and even when we rented to middle aged families things were missing, broken, dirty, etc. Its just human nature.
I also want to state that when we left we cleaned and nothing was broken so the house was in good order.

Owner's Response: This young man was told from his initial inquiry, that the property was located in a family, residential neighborhood and that the owner lives next door. A reasonable person would assume that this means if you want to party this is not the place for you. Late night carousing, disturbing much of the neighborhood and not taking responsibility for one’s actions is hardly the kind of behavior we want or expect from our renters.

Owner Lacks Respect & Has Poor Customer Service

Owner Lacks Respect & Has Poor Customer Service
  • 1 of 5
Be Forewarned - the owner lives next door to the house and has a distinct lack of respect for the privacy of the renters. She demonstrated Very Poor Customer Service, by purposely taking an aggressive stance in what could have been a simple conversation and turning it into a complete argument. There are other houses in the area to rent for your family's vacation, so please learn from our mistake and chose one of them.

Owner's Response: Yes, the owner and her family live next door to this family owned and managed property. This fact is indicated in correspondence with future renters, deposits and balances are mailed to the owner, keys are picked up from the owner, questions are answered by the owner and any problems/repairs are addressed by the owner. The owner also takes care of watering the gardens around the property and putting down deck/patio umbrellas when renters fail to do so.
Unfortunately, at the end of their stay, this group was unhappy with the fact that they had to be reminded they had stayed past their check-out time in obvious disregard for incoming renters. As it was, it took 3 people over 3 hours to clean the property and have it ready for the incoming family. Another reason we prefer to rent to families rather than groups.


From the Owner

We built the cottage as our summer vacation home and later built a second home next door when we became year-round residents, turning the original house into a summer rental property.

From the Owner

Rehoboth Bay is an excellent spot for small boat sailing, kayaking and paddleboarding. Also good for younger children who prefer a calmer body of water to splash and play in.
