Nice home, great location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with my extended family for a week. House is well maintained, clean and tastefully updated. A little quirky (i.e. floors in bedrooms are unlevel) but to be expected considering the age of the home. Location is great - 2.5 blocks to the beach and boardwalk (though the east/west blocks are relatively long in Rehoboth) and also right on Silver Lake. I would recommend this house!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. We are so glad you enjoyed your vacation. I love that you think the house is a bit "quirky". It was built in 1927 by a prohibition smuggler who brought shipments of booze in from the beach across Silver Lake. My mother bought the house in 2002 and rehabbed it; including a new master bedroom suite on the first floor, modern bathrooms and kitchen, and a dock with a gazebo. She also planted the original gardens that year, and has maintained them ever since. Many visitors to Rehoboth have enjoyed watching the garden grow and change over the years.

Great location & home

  • 5 of 5

Having a great view of Silver Lake and being 3 blocks from the beach make this a perfect spot for a Rehoboth vacation. The home is lovely, comfortable, and well equipped. The owners are very responsive. The accommodations are great for a family, and we look forward to staying there again in the future.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your vacation in our home. We also love living close to the beach and right on the lake. Our friends fish in the lake in the early morning, and hit the beach after breakfast. We kayak in the early part of the day, and walk up to the beach for a swim. We walk into town for dinner or dessert. We hope to have you stay again soon.

This property was so inviting and perfectly set up for our extended family. We especially appreciate the private dock across the street allowing us to bring our kayaks. Owners are a joy to deal with and always took time to address any questions we had. This will definitely become a yearly escape for us.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. We love having guests return for multiple years. We are glad you have enjoyed the dock. It is also a favorite spot for reading in the sun, cocktails in the evening and for kayaking and sailing for our family.

excellent experience

  • 5 of 5

The property owners were awesome and answered all of our questions before our arrival. The house easily accommodated 6 adults and two children (and we could have fit more!). It's an easy walk to town, the beach, the boardwalk, the lake, and playground. The parking pass was a definite plus for the beach -- we drove down all of our gear in the morning and easily parked on the beach block each day. The kitchen had everything that we could ask for. The outside shower was amazing. Thank you! Thank you! We hope to see you again.

From the Owner

This house has it all! It's right on the lake for bird watching, fishing, and peaceful times on the dock. But... it's still at the beach!! We walk or bike to the beach in under five minutes. We walk to the shops and eateries in town in just 10 minutes. This cottage comes with its own romantic history. It was built by a bootlegger who picked up shipments on the ocean front, brought them across Silver Lake and stored them in the basement.
