Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6, private access to Rehoboth Bay
Why Carol Mertes-Smith chose Rehoboth Beach
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 cottage into a summer rental property.
What makes this Cottage unique
Rehoboth Bay is an excellent spot for small boat sailing, kayaking and paddleboarding. Rehoboth Bay Sailing Association is close by for those who want to rent kayaks, stand up paddleboards and sailboats, enroll children in weekly sailing school or for regatta participants looking for a rental close to the sailing club. The bay is also a good place for younger children who prefer a calmer body of water to splash and play in.

Quiet, roomy relaxing house
Spacious enough for a family of 5 with generous gathering areas. Short walk to beach and shops of Dewey Beach area.
Very nice property, quiet neighbors and quick access to the beach/Dewey strip.
Great house-great location
We were so happy with this house! It was bright and clean and a great location. A quick walk to the beach and the ability to take the trolley to Rehobeth was perfect! It would have been nice if they had playing cards or board games there though but we would definitely rent again! Vicky and Carol were so nice and a pleasure to deal with!!
Cute cottage - comfortable stay!
Cute cottage with great location. We had a nice stay here! The cottage feels a lot larger than it looks. It is walking distance to the beach (less that 2 blocks) and walking distance to all the Dewey bars/restaurants.
Thanks - glad you enjoyed your stay.
Great deal on an old house with excellent location
The house is very old, but met our needs.
We enjoyed the outdoor features- shower, grill, tables.
The AC broke during our time but the owner quickly resolved the problem.
The ant problem should be resolved before next year.
Would stay again! Close and easy to beach.
This house was clean, odor-free, and plenty cool enough. We advise paying no attention to an earlier overly critical review. We did not even notice the ceilings because the house was comfortable with simple beach furniture and there are two views of the bay beyond the two houses between this one and the water. Check Google Maps satellite view if you want complete accuracy. While there is a slope to one part of the hallway floor, that’s not uncommon in a beach house of this age. We rented this house because of its location—an easy walk to the beach—and its number of bedrooms and bathrooms, not because we wanted a high-end home with updated everything. There was no need to adjust the AC because the setting at 78 degrees was fine even in the extreme heat and humidity that lasted the whole time we were there. The recommended setting was 78 degrees, but you could lower the temperature if you chose to. We did not feel the need. There were no restrictions regarding sand in the outdoor shower or the temperature of the washing machine water. One thing we were pleasantly surprised by was that there are actually two totally separate living spaces—one (Queen Bed) bedroom is part of a suite that has a private full bath, kitchenette (with its own coffee maker, refrigerator, microwave, and dishes), living room, and separate outside entrance. This house was simple, but totally fine and we would definitely rent it again.
So glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again in the future.
