Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.25 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
We consider ourselves local residents since we have been here every summer of our lives. We love the beach, the bay for sailing, the many restaurants, the beach, the biking, the beach, the golfing, the beach...you get the idea.
Owner purchased this Cottage in 1986
Why Owner chose Dewey Beach
We have been summering here forever. For us, Dewey is a way of life. We get homesick if we have not walked barefoot on this wonderful beach every month. We had to buy so that we could always come back.
What makes this Cottage unique
We are unique because we are one of the original cottages in Dewey Beach. It has been kept up impeccably. We pay attention to the details and everyone who has stayed there cannot believe how clean it is. This is a separate house offering privacy unlike most condos and townhouses. There is parking for four cars. The house is a short distance to the beach meaning you can leave your beach gear on the beach and go back to the house for lunch or refreshments, not to mention a bathroom break. This is truly convenient if you have children.

Great Cottage Getaway
House had everything we needed to enjoy a relaxing week at the beach. The property was also clean and organized when we arrived so it was very easy to get settled and start vacationing. The property owners were very responsive and answered all questions before arrival and it was so great they were amenable to our dog for a small fee! Highly recommend this property for a vacation.
Nice little cottage in a great location. The property is a little older as can be seen on the listing. However, it was clean and decorated nicely. There is plenty of sleeping space. The kids loved the loft area. The front porch is a great area to hang out. The parking is tricky but it works. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.
Can’t beat this location!
The house was cozy and perfect for our group. The location is great... an easy walk to the beach, and sunsets across the street in the bay. Property owner was very attentive. Would definitely rent this again.
Great location and lovely home
Our week couldn't have gone better. The house is wonderful. The pictures don't do it justice. The living room/kitchen area is open and comfortable. the front screened in porch is beautiful (my personal favorite hangout spot for the week). The location is amazing; you are just a few doors down from the beach and an easy stroll to all the fun things that Dewey has to offer. Being set back off the road was a blessing. I've stayed in a couple different places that were right in the thick of Dewey and was frequently woken and never got a chance to relax. This is the perfect blend of a quiet beach house with access to the Dewey shenanigans. The owners are incredibly friendly and responsive. We can't wait to do another trip!
The cozy beach cottage was an adequate size for our family. The closeness to the beach and bay can't be beaten. We enjoyed hanging out on the porch which could fit all 8 of us just fine. The owners of the house were great to work with and responded to question in a reasonable amount of time.
We are glad to hear our cottage was adequate. We are about 250 feet from the beach, which makes it very convenient to be able to leave your belongings on the beach and walk back and forth to the cottage during the day. You can also walk to many places in Dewey to get lunch and/or bring lunch back to enjoy on the beach. We also work very hard to communicate with our guests to make their stay enjoyable and make lasting memories.
Family friendly house very close to the beach
Very enjoyable property, we loved our stay. We had 7 adults, 3 children, and a Labrador Retriever and it was perfect. The property is very well maintained and clean (you wouldn’t guess it was a pet property), we were pleasantly surprised at how well stocked the kitchen is - plenty of cookware and dishes, wine glasses, specialty cooking items, and all brand new stainless steel appliances. Between the hose, outdoor shower, and two bathrooms we had no problem cleaning off from the beach. The screened in porch was lovely, kids liked eating at the large picnic table, adults enjoyed sitting outside with a cup of coffee in the morning. Two grills and a large patio in the back make for great entertaining. Large TV in the living room. There were enough separate places between the outdoor patios, loft, and house, that the kids could play separately and give the adults some grown-up time. We had a snafu with one a/c unit (that was unpredictable, not due to any issue with the home) and the owner Charmine was incredibly fast and responsive. She sent someone out immediately to replace the a/c unit and followed up to ensure that we were comfortable and our needs were met. Excellent service and communication. Laundry facilities on site were great. Parking is a bit of a challenge, but it didn’t bother us. There are spots for 4 cars and you must park single file, so we just needed to be strategic about who parked where to allow for ease of driving. With all the nearby restaurants, shops, and beach that wasn’t an issue though. Would definitely rent from again - perfect location for several families and very pet-friendly!
Thank you for your kind words. We are happy that you had a great vacation. It was a joy working with you. We hope you come back to our cozy cottage again.
