Had all of the necessities. Outdoor shower was a bit dusty and bug-laden but functioning. Great proximity to beach and overall great location. Loved the bikes and puzzles. One of the upstairs rooms was pretty hot and TV was broken but we kept it cool enough w/ AC cranked. Front of house door handle kept falling off so kids were always worried about locking themselves out. Could use a bit of dusting off outside but overall a terrific place to stay. Gas stovetop is a bit tricky to get comfortable with. The ignitor malfunctions a bit. Fence doors must be rigged to stay closed so watch your pups when they are outside.

Overall it was good, could have been a bit cleaner in the edges. Beds for us were a bit firm but some may like it. AC upstairs does not match the down stairs.

We loved the area and the house was in a perfect location. Walking dogs along Silver Lake (which was very close) and on the Boardwalk (2 very long blocks away) was our daily routine. We loved it.

Absolutely charming "Old Rehoboth" cottage. Loved that the owner kept many period details and furnished it with period appropriate pieces and decor. The lot is private with a nice rear garden. We walked everywhere we wanted to go in downtown Rehoboth. It was March, but we still enjoyed the fabulous wrap-around screened porch. Well equipped kitchen, and altogether a comfortable place to stay. The online description is mostly accurate, but one of the downstairs bedrooms has a king bed, not a queen as described online, so we did have to go out and buy some king size sheets. Would absolutely stay here again!

This historic cottage had everything we needed for an off season getaway. Lance was extremely responsive when we had trouble with the key and tv. He managed to solve all any issue we had both quickly and without fuss. Even with very cool and breezy days, we enjoyed being able to walk easily to town and to the beach. The location is great. This home was ideal for us. I so enjoyed it that I hope we will return there soon.

Okay. Bathrooms and kitchen were clean, but sand on floors and couple of beds. Stove top hardline dangerous as two burners did not dependably light. House very musty created allergic rraction for 2 of us. Shower tiny but we're all thin so ok for us.

I grew up going to Rehoboth 40 some years. We come back every year to continue the tradition for our child. This home is a short walk to the beach and great restaurants. It has everything you need for the trip to the beach or for a great dinner party staying in. Charming and cozy. The perfect setup up for a relaxing beach stay with family and friends. The house is historic which is part of what I loved it reminded my of the Renoboth I knew as a kid.

If you like the following things, you will enjoy this house: * a big screened porch with lots of places to sit, a table to eat at, and breezes from two directions (it's wraparound porch!) * old-house charm * a firm mattress (choose the back 1st-floor bedroom) or a soft mattress (choose the front bedroom) * a kitchen you can really cook in (it has everything you'd need, including a good coffee-maker, many serving bowls and pots & pans, knives that are actually sharp, and lots of dishes) * a spacious & nicely-kept outdoor shower * fat-tire bikes in all sizes (beach chairs too) * proximity to the beach (two long blocks, a pleasant & easy walk) * a lake nearby We had a great stay. As others have mentioned, the AC works less well on the 2nd floor (where the twin beds are). We almost put in the window-unit that was resting on the floor of one upstairs bedroom, but we were able to keep it comfortable by cranking up the central AC and opening the 1st-floor doors to let in warm air for the 1st-floor people. Our dog loved watching the rabbits from the screened porch. (Be careful letting your dog into the backyard unsupervised. There's a small gap in the fence that allowed our German shepherd to escape into the neighbor's yard). We thought there might be smells or wear-&-tear from previous dog tenants, but there was no evidence of that at all, the house looked and smelled fine. The house was nicely cleaned for our arrival and very comfortable for the 7 of us. A big plus: the owner is very friendly and communicative. We had a couple of questions before and during our stay, and he answered them right away.

We enjoyed our week in Rehoboth Beach and the location of this house is perfect. Less than 10 minute walk to the beach and 15 minutes to the boardwalk. Having the bikes, wagon, beach toys, boogie boards were all terrific. The outdoor shower was a huge bonus that we loved. We also loved the screened in porch. The house is very nice in many ways but is ready for a refresh in paint and furniture. We all fully recognize that no doubt it will increase the rental cost but it would be worth it.
