Guests & friends have always loved my charming little shingled 'Cottage by the Sea.' Only 3 houses back from ocean, you can hear the waves, smell the salt air, watch fog roll in. Get up early for a run, bikeride, long walk, or yoga on the beach. Read, nap, enjoy cocktails on my huge wraparound porch. Close to everything--a short walk (or catch the Trolley if you're feeling lazy) into both Dewey/Rehoboth for great restaurants, nightlife & tax-free shopping. And, I make you a delicious breakfast! The space: Cottage By the Sea is the picture perfect beach house, only steps from the beach. (So picture perfect in fact, that it was the set location for a movie!)

Close to everything--a short walk (or catch the Trolley if you're feeling lazy) into both Dewey/Rehoboth for great restaurants, nightlife & tax-free shopping. And, I make you a delicious breakfast! The space: Cottage By the Sea is the picture perfect beach house, only steps from the beach. (So picture perfect in fact, that it was the set location for a movie!) Centrally located exactly between Rehoboth and Dewey, this quaint shingled house is easy walking distance to the two very different but lively downtown scenes, providing a quiet respite in between. This is not some cheaply furnished beach rental... this is my home that I am sharing with you. You won't find plastic chairs, cots, or other cheap rickety furniture like most other rentals in the area. You'll have all the comforts of a real home. If you've not been to Rehoboth before, traffic in the summer can be a bear! Other accommodations may say they are close-by, only 5-10 minutes to the beach, or two to four miles... But what they don't tell you is that in the summer you may be stuck in gridlock traffic for 30 minutes just to get to the beach or go out to dinner. And then, where in the world do you park? Forget all that and stay at my place in the OCEAN BLOCK, central to everything but on a quiet street. And of course I'll make you a wonderful breakfast! What more can you ask? *** Please Note: I have two very sweet friendly cats who will try to befriend you. If you do not like cats, you should not book with me. My only two 4-star ratings came from people who did not like cats! Guest access: > Your bedroom suite has a QUEEN size bed, two dressers, a rocking chair, ceiling fan (but of course I have a/c as well!), your own TV, a closet and a bath with stand up shower. > You also have a SEPARATE OUTSIDE ENTRANCE in case you want to sneak out early in the morning for a sunrise walk or come in late at night, right next to the OUTDOOR SHOWER, also handy when you're sandy coming off the beach. You'll have access to the main common areas of my home: KITCHEN, LIVING/DINING rooms, and the huge wraparound screened PORCH. > I have an extra REFRIGERATOR that guests may use for snacks, BYOB beverages or restaurant leftovers. > Keurig Coffee/tea/cold bottled water is always available. > BREAKFAST is included, either hot, made-to-order (at your prescribed time) or I can leave a plentiful breakfast out for your leisure access. * Rehoboth Beach has become a haven for FOODIES; there are so many fabulous restaurants here! I'm happy to make recommendations or answer any questions... I've eaten at just about every place in town! * Eating out for every meal may not be your thing, especially when the popular restaurants can have long waits for tables. No worries, just order carryout and enjoy a lovely candlelight dinner out on my porch! * Or, make a quick trip to the grocery store, and you are welcome to use my charcoal grill, and 'stay in' for dinner if you like. (You have kitchen access to staples/spices/condiments for your convenience.) * In addition, I have an upstairs DECK if you'd like to catch rays without the sand, or do some stargazing. I have a nice collection of books and magazines you are welcome to borrow for beach reading. I also have 2 loaner BIKES you may use to ride the local trails or into town. But, I think mostly you'll love having the BEACH only steps away! * Bed linens, a pillow selection, and fluffy bath towels will all be provided, but I recommend you bring your own beach towels, blanket, etc. I do have beach chairs and a selection of coolers you are welcome to use. Umbrellas can be rented on the beach for $12. * You are more than welcome to BYOB, use the fridge/ice, for taking drinks/snacks to the beach, or for relaxing on the cool screened porch with a cocktail after a day in the sun. I have an extra fridge on the porch for the use of guests. I also have a variety of barware (skakers, blender, plastic wine glasses, cocktail glasses and pint beer glasses) you may use as well. * I also have a stack of restaurant menus, and several local guides, maps, even a bike trail map, that you may use -- everything you might need to know at your fingertips! * Lastly, you don't have to worry about parking either. I have plenty of off-street parking so you don't have to buy an expensive parking permit or have to keep the Rehoboth Beach meters filled with quarters all day. I am close walking distance into downtown, and there is also the Jolly Trolley that stops only a half block away. More

Interaction with guests
* I will personally meet and greet you upon your arrival, to show you around your home-away-from home, and get you settled in. I’ll have your room clean and ready with freshly laundered bed and bath linens, cold drinks in the fridge, and beach chairs and a cooler ready for you… Then it’s time for you to hit the beach! * I'm around, as much or as little as you need. I sleep and work upstairs but try to be around downstairs if my guests need me. I can be reached easily by phone or text. I'm happy to recommend places to go, eat, things to do, etc. as I'm a food and travel writer. *A delicious hot breakfast is included * I'm happy to socialize on the porch with you over a cocktail, or leave you alone to read or nap on the chaise lounge.

Getting around
* From my house, you are close enough to walk to both downtown Rehoboth & Dewey. The Jolley Trolley runs every day 8am to 2am all summer ($3 one way, $5 round trip). * In addition, I have two bikes (one men's, one women's) you can borrow to go into town, or hit the Junction & Breakwater Trail (running between Rehoboth and Lewes). * I'll provide off street parking for one vehicle, in the driveway, and you'll not be blocked in (I'll park on the street with my permit). Parking in Rehoboth is paid, but easier to do with the Parkmobile app. But honestly, my house is so close to everything, all my guests agree you needn't move your car once you've arrived here.
How to get there
My home is perfectly positioned between both downtown Rehoboth and Dewey Beach on a quiet street, so I have the best of both worlds. It is only a few blocks in either direction to take advantage of shopping, restaurants, the boardwalk, and night life. If you've not been here before, this may not seem important. However, due to the popularity of both Rehoboth Beach and Dewey Beach, traffic along Route 1 and downtown is frequently gridlocked in the summer. Skip that headache and stay right at the beach with me. If you are feeling lazy, the Jolley Trolley has a stop just over on the next corner (one very short block away), so you can always catch a ride if you don't want to walk home after a big dinner or deal with parking in town. Our beach is also the least crowded, because our street is ...
