Easy living at the beach
About the Owner
I was born and raised in fabulous Sussex County and spent my summers 'at the beach' in my grandparents' cottage on Hickman Street, where Daddy still lives today. We rode our bikes on the Boardwalk in the mornings. Mommie packed us lunch and took us to the beach every afternoon. We swam, hunted for shells, sunned, read, napped under the umbrella and returned happily 'brown as berries' (sometimes, red as lobsters). My brother was genius at skim boarding. We showered off the day outside in the Sand Shower - Awesome! Daddy always had croquet set up for a nice game before dinner. Evenings were spent on the Boards at Funland, eating Dollies' popcorn, ice cream or chocolates at Candy Kitchen. When we were teens, there was volleyball under the lights on the beach. When my own 4 children were young, I wanted them to share the Rehoboth experience. I had the great, good fortune to buy a wonderful home on Pennsylvania Avenue. Later the Oak Cottage was purchased and lovingly renovated and refurnished. Vera Bradley bedspreads, beautiful dishes, original art, central air-conditioning and a huge porch on which your entire family can stretch out, relax, dine, snooze, read, play games, make the Oak Cottage a home I can share with others looking for a classic, family beach vacation.
Did I mention we love to dance!
Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Debra - things have been so hectic since we've been home I've not had the opportunity to write and tell you how much we enjoyed our stay at your Oak Cottage rental. My husband and I drove from Texas for a wedding and family reunion and were fortunate enough to have found your lovely home with it s wonderful porch and outstanding location; we relished the peace of our morning coffee on the porch every morning and ate most meals out there too! Our son and his wife stayed in the small cottage out back and were certainly thoroughly pleased.
The wedding on the beach, though delayed for about an hour because of rain, was wonderful! And, although my husband does not understand my joy of spending time in Rehoboth (or any beach) , he had a most pleasant week as we walked and biked for many miles around the beach, town, and boardwalk. On the other hand, I had a great time and look forward to coming back , even if I can't get him to leave the ranch again.
Your rental is so obviously a labor of love for you; we were very comfortable and appreciate all your efforts. Everything was so well tended to and the dishwasher was the quietest I'd ever been around. Also, I appreciate your linen rental; the towels and sheets were so much nicer than what I've experienced in the past.
I was glad to meet you and had fun visiting with you. Again, many thanks and I hope to see you next year.
All best wishes,

Easy living at the beach
We were celebrating my mom's 85th birthday by returning to an area our parents took us to as children. This all girls group had a wonderful time relaxing at the cottage. There is plenty a space for a group to be together or little pockets of space to get off by yourself. The cottage was very clean and well appointed. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of hot water in the modern showers. Debra was there to greet us and do a walk through to give us any necessary information. This is not a place for people used to staying at the Ritz, this is beach living at its best.
Spent a weekend here with husband and our daughters family which included two small children. My husband and I stayed in the little cottage in back....perfect for our private (and quiet) time away from the grandchildren. Our only complaint was that our time was much too short. Both cottages are charming, both the wrap-around porch and yard are huge, the kitchen is well equipped, and the location is marvelous. We would definitely go back...but for a longer time!!
Charming Vacation Retreat
This was our second year at Oak Cottage and we loved it just as much the second time. We go to Rehoboth for our annual Girl's Weekend. Since we found Oak Cottage we knew this was the only place for us in Rehoboth. Although we spend most of our time on the beautiful screened-in porch, both the cottage and guest house are beautiful. Each room is special and Debra updates and replaces items each year. We also took advantage of the linen service. It is so nice not to worry about sheets and towels and the quality of the ones provided are exceptional.
The location is great and the personal attention is wonderful.
Our first two days were rainy and when we left it was sunny, since no one was arriving that day, Debra asked if we would like to stay and enjoy the beach for the day. It was lovely and made it seem like we had an entire extra day.
You cannot ask for a better vacation for the family or a group. It was a delightful extended weekend
16 Oak Avenue is a wonderful place to stay! We totally enjoyed our weekend at the beach. The kitchen is stocked with plenty of gear to cook at home. The beds were comfortable and rooms spacious. We would go back !
home away from home and more, this gem has it all!
We were surprised by how big the property was, and the yard was like our own private oasis! While we had decided to take a vacation to go to the beach, we actually spent much of our time relaxing at the house. The location is nice and quiet but also so close and convenient to the beach and boardwalk. It really does have the best of both worlds. Deb (the owner) was responsive and available to answer any questions that came up! We have already recommended it to friends and neighbors and can't wait to go back again!
Fabuous Stay in Oak Cottage
Oak Cottage is a beautiful property that embodies relaxation. The interior is comfortably laid out and beautifully decorated. We were a group 6 and there was plenty of room- beds were very comfy. The kitchen, although we did not utilize it much during our stay, was well appointed. The small house in the back is lovely and quite comfortable. Truly this is a place where I would like to return and spend many more days. We were here for a family wedding and so did not have lots of time to relax. The wrap around porch is fabulous- I felt like Goldilocks first trying the wicker rocker, then the chaise lounge! Thank you Debra for your informative email on your favorite places to eat in Rehoboth . I also must mention the location, so quiet, but close to all the amenities and near enough to walk or ride a bike to Cape Henlopen State Park.
From the Owner
“You will love this cottage because it is not the Four Seasons Hotel. It is an old style, comfy, charming, classic beach cottage. You will live on the porch. Everyone does. It's addictive. The yard is large and private. You are not jammed up against the neighbor's house. Plenty of room to play. I always wanted my children to get away from the TV, video games and 'go be kids.' Yours will be free from the entertainment world and go explore. You will unwind and relax. All that said, there is central air so no noisy window units humming all night. There are TVs in Little Cottage, Master Bedroom, Living Room and one Guest Bedroom for times you feel like watching a movie or checking out the news - try not to do it. You have a nice partly sunny, partly shaded yard and a cool, screened porch on which to enjoy your coffee, cocktail and dinner. BBQ some Delmarvalous chicken or steam up those Blue Crabs. We have such delicious local produce and seafood. Or, take yourself out to one of the many local restaurants - Seafood, Sushi, Japanese, Chinese, Italian, Mexican, Pizza, and even British cuisine. This is the most idyllic beach town ever, with all the memories of your childhood and everything you want within your reach.”
