vacation rental description

I have named my beach cottage La Sauterelle – French for cricket – in honor of the copper cricket
weather vane that has graced the top of my beach home for many years.  The cricket is a symbol of good luck but I do not have them in the house!

This single family cottage is at the end of one of the last sandy lanes in Dewey Beach.  It is only 50 yards or so back from the sand dunes, beach and ocean at the end of the street.  Perfect for quick trips back and forth from the beach for lunch, snacks, refreshments or naps for the little ones.  No major streets to cross in this residential area.  And you can easily stroll to all the restaurants and entertainment in Dewey.  Or hop the Jolly Trolley on the corner for a quick fun open-air ride into Rehoboth Beach which is just one short mile up the road.

This two-story, two-bedroom, 1.5 bath home is a classic cedar-shingled cottage.  Tastefully furnished combined living and dining areas, fully equipped and modern kitchen, one bedroom (queen size bed) and one full bath on the ground floor.   A side entrance leads to a wonderful outdoor shower.  The circular staircase takes you to the loft bedroom (king size bed) on the second floor with an adjoining half bath.  An entrance off the second floor leads you to a dramatic roof deck with upholstered patio furniture, table and umbrella.  Perfect for enjoying the ocean breeze, sunset and evening cocktails.

This well-maintained home features warm pine paneling throughout, tongue and groove wood ceilings, vaulted ceiling in the dining/kitchen area with skylights, gleaming hardwood floors in the living areas, and carpeting in the cozy loft bedroom. The living room features ample upscale seating
with one full size sofa and one love seat. Custom window blinds and treatments throughout.

There is a small deck/stoop on the front with one dedicated parking spot on the size.  The
home has cable TV, wifi, stereo, baseboard heating and AC.   

Tastefully decorated and maintained by the owner.

Occupancy limited to four.

Small pets are allowed for an additional fee and upon pre-approval by the owner.

Rents by the week in season, Saturday-to-Saturday.  Shorter stays based on availability, contact

Thanks so much for considering La Sauterelle for your beach vacation. Hope to see you in Dewey Beach.

traveler reviews for this dewey beach cottage rental


Review submitted: August 17, 2013   Date of arrival: August 3, 2013

Beautifully decorated, well stocked, and comfy beds. What more could one want? Close to the beach and walking distance to most of Dewey's restaurants and bars.

Recommended for: pet-friendly, romantic getaway

La Satuerelle met all our expectations. Great find

Review submitted: August 1, 2013   Date of arrival: July 20, 2013

This cottage was great and met all our expectations. Nice quiet street and neighborhood with many owner occupied houses. About three minute walk to the beach and to Rt 1 to catch the trolley to Rehoboth. Very nicely maintained. King size bed was very comfortable. (Just the two of us, so did not use the queen, but seemed nice too). AC worked great as we started the vacation with 90 plus temperatures. Nice breeze on the "rooftop" deck.

It is definitely nice for two people. I'm sure two couple would be fine also, or couple with two children. It is small but comfortable.

While the spiral stairs to the loft bedroom looks great, I would just caution tall folks to duck at the top. Also be careful if any leg/knee concerns. You will need to maneuver the spirals to bring up food/drinks to the deck but we managed okay.

This cottage is a great find for the price. We hope to be back there next year.

Recommended for: families with young children, girls getaway, tourists without a car, romantic getaway
