NOTE: We do not list on any other site.
Thank you for your interest in staying at 'A Fluke of Nature'. It is one of the very few beach homes in our community from where you see AND hear the waves crash onto the surf -- all from our veranda.
This is a true oceanfront experience and we're reminded how spectacular it is each time we visit! We named this classic townhouse 'A Fluke of Nature' because of the unexpected view of whales swimming in front of our home on our very first weekend here. We also often see dolphins swimming throughout the morning from our veranda.
Our relaxing home has an open-concept living room, fully-equipped and well-appointed kitchen, spacious outdoor shower, and comfortable beds for naps in the middle of the day.
To round out a terrific beachfront vacation for your family, our home also has:
—Two breezy oceanfront screened porches, one on each floor to enjoy the sunrise with your morning coffee. Bring your favorite K-cups for the Keurig machine. There's also a coffee maker if you prefer to brew a fresh pot of your favorite coffee.
—Beach cottage look and feel with open beamed ceilings, shiplap walls, and wide plank wood floors throughout. (No carpet!) It is light and airy with new slipcovers and upholstery.
—A 2/3 bedroom option which means we have two (2) large bedrooms upstairs. The back bedroom can be further divided with a hanging folding divider into two (2) smaller bedrooms. This convertible option is what creates the third bedroom. You choose among the King bed in the master bedroom, or the two Full-sized beds in the convertible back bedroom. (Please note: Our limit is 4 adults, and a total of 6 guests).
—Full bath upstairs, a half-bath on first floor, and a hot water outdoor shower on the enclosed back deck with storage and a full sized washer and dryer.
—Large 54-inch TV in the living room and two TVs upstairs. There is cable TV downstairs, ROKUs and DVD players in bedrooms with each TV.
—Bose sound system with Bluetooth for your Pandora and iTunes or for listening to local radio stations and CDs.
—Our local Jolly Trolley stop is a 2-minute walk and you can walk/bike to downtown Rehoboth and Dewey for dining and ice cream. We are just south of Silver Lake, one of the quietest areas of Dewey Beach.
—Off-street parking for two (2) cars where you can leave them without worry! The new Fresh Market is three (3) minutes away by car and it has exceptional fresh-cooked meals and a huge selection of gourmet grocery items. With Bed, Bath & Beyond next to Fresh Market, you don’t have to deal with Route 1 traffic near the outlets for buying the basics the entire time you’re at A Fluke of Nature.
—Guests must provide their own linens and towels. Bring your pillowcases, fitted and flat sheets for 2 Full size beds, and a set for one King size bed. Also bring your favorite bath and beach towels. (We have a washer and dryer too!)
—Weekly rates for summer are $3,000 plus a cleaning fee, City of Dewey tax, and VRBO processing fee (which we do not control). During the summer months, this is a Saturday to Saturday rental. We offer discounts for multiple weeks stay. Because, really, sometimes one week is not enough!
—This is a true no-smoking, no-pets, no Senior-week, no large-group property. Smoking is not allowed neither inside or outside.
—Please note there is no outdoor BBQ or grilling of any kind at our property for fire safety reasons. If you must grill at the beach, this is not the right property for you. (And that’s ok - we want you to have the right information to ensure you thoroughly enjoy our home at the beach!)
—Since we are not a hotel nor a full-time rental, we have the expectation that our guests will treat our home gently and with respect.
—A signed Lease Agreement is required for all paid reservations 45 days prior to check-in; failure of tenant to sign lease is cancellation by tenant.
--Intentional mis-representation of occupants (eg: number of adults vs. number of children) will result in automatic cancellation by tenant and/or immediate eviction.
