Perfect house for small group in ideal location
This has been our second year spending Memorial Day Weekend at 17B and we love it! For a small group of six mid-20s females, it's the perfect sized house and is walking distance to the best things Dewey has to offer - only steps from Starboard and the beach. J.D. and Tracey are extremely accommodating and make the process of booking the house and the stay so easy. I love having the upstairs porch and the number of beds make it a great space for our group. The fact that the door is a keypad is really convenient - it's like they thought of everything! I definitely recommend this house for you upcoming trip to Dewey; we can't wait to spend another summer on New Orleans!
We loved the house and the location is ideal because it is a short walk to the beach. Having a place we can walk to from the beach during the day is convenient. The house was is good condition and the beds were comfortable. We didn't really cook much because of the close proximity of restaurants.
This property has so much potential but it is in need of repairs and updating. The house smelled of pet urine the minute we walked in. I had to lite a candle and spray febreeze on the couch and carpets. The bathroom down stairs has two large water stains on the drop ceiling not very appealing to shower there. The floors in both of the bathrooms and kitchen are well worn and need to be replaced. The bathrooms need to be updated. The upstairs bathroom had paint peeling from the ceiling over the shower. There was no shade in the upstairs bathroom over the toilet. The folks from the building across have a direct view into the bathroom. There are rust stains on the floor from the washer which is in the up stairs bathroom. Pots and pans were worn. On the plus side, the house is very close to the beach. The air conditioner (window units) are loud but work well. Never ran out of hot water in the showers. By the way, the down stairs bedroom is very small. The house is comfortable for 4 adults. The outside of the house could also use power washing. The side of house at the upstairs deck level is green with mildew. I do not feel this landlord is taking time to do repairs on the house. There is a review that talks about the back door. It is so warped and the paint is peeling that it really needs to be replaced. The screen door in the back is broken. Looks like from a review in 07/2015 that it has not been fixed. You cannot get into the back outdoor shower because it is over grown. I gave it a fair rating because the house is so close to the beach and it is comfortable. I wish it was more updated.
Excellent location, close to beach, great communication with owners. I can't say enough wonderful things about our stay in Dewey at this cute rental. With 3 young kids, the proximity to the beach was ideal. House was clean and fit us perfectly. Thank you JD and Tracey for a great stay!!!!
In general, this house is in need of repairs and the level of cleanliness could be much improved.
The following items need attention:
1. No egress possible from thr rear door due to collapse of wooden fence at rear of property.
2. No access to outdoor shower.3. Rear door screen missing. Front door screen badly torn.
4. 1st floor beds not suitable for adults.5.outdoor storage unusable. (No room to list other comments.)
Great family-oriented location!
This property was the perfect location for our family. It was close to the beach and within walking distance from all the local restaurants, which was important because we had two small children and a dog in tow. The owners were very responsive and answered any questions we had. The house is located in a quiet, residential area with two parking spaces. Very family oriented!

Activity and Interests
The beach is steps away and dog friendly all day in the off season. (Before 9:30 am and after 5:30 pm in summer, dogs must be licensed). Walk to any of Dewey's many bars and restaurants offering great food and live music. In summer, enjoy bonfires on the beach Wednesday nights and movies on Mondays!
Rehoboth Beach is 5 minutes away via The Jolly Trolly and offers many shops, boardwalk, and restaurants. The Jolly Trolly stop is at Route 1 and New Orleans (in front of Gary's Dewey Beach Grill). Search for Town of Dewey Beach and Rehoboth Beach attractions to learn about special weekend events.
Upcoming for fall - Greyhound weekend in Oct, Film Festival in Nov
