All the rates shown are family rates. For non-related groups, rates quoted are for up to four people with an additional charge of $50.00 per night per person for up to two additional.

PLEASE NOTE: This apartment will only sleep six people. OCCUPANCY IS STRICTLY ENFORCED. Sorry, I must post this due to a few reservations that understate how many guests and then just have them show up I want to be sure everyone is aware of the rules. Over

occupancy places us at risk of losing our rental license.

Failure to commence tenancy will result in the loss of any money paid and any balance will be due to the owner.

See the online agreement for complete details.

In the event of power outages, loss of cable, internet, appliances, tv failure, or any offered amenity, there will be no reduction in rent. A technician will be called ASAP.

Also please note that VRBO now charges a service fee on top of our rates which will be added to the total. We have no control over those fees:

In addition to the rental rate, there is a 3% lodging tax required by the Town of Dewey Beach, a $175.00 cleaning fee, VRBO SERVICE FEE, and any additional guest fees which are calculated and charged accordingly by VRBO.

Dog Pet fees are due via Venmo or in cash at check-in. YOU MUST LET US KNOW IF YOU ARE BRINGING A DOG PRIOR TO COMING!! Showing up with a dog without notice will result in doubling the pet fee.

No Reservation is confirmed until the OWNER receives confirmation of payment from VRBO.

Please don't ask us to discount as we have a policy not to discount in fairness to our return guests and those who reserve early and pay the full rate and associated fees.

Our week runs from Saturday to Saturday. We NEVER rent for just one night and only rent for full weeks during July and August unless we have VERY last-minute availability.

Due to issues surrounding the Covid-19 virus we have had to make some changes to how we operate. Check-in time is now 4:00 PM (NO EXCEPTIONS). This extra time is needed to get everything done to ensure your safety.

Our beds will no longer have our beachy comforter sets but will still have mattress pads that will be washed and bleached after each rental stay. You will need to bring your own blankets and your own pillows with the linens and towels that you will be bringing for your safety. We have uploaded our new rental agreement. Since you are accepting this agreement by reserving it, please read it over carefully. Your safety is our main concern and every effort is being made to make your stay as comfortable and worry-free as possible. Linens, pillows, blankets, etc can be rented from Grand Rental Station 302-227-RENT. if you don't wish to bring them.

    Wonderful Week

    Very nice relaxing holiday at Dewey Beach. The property was great. We loved the backyard - with the fluffy sand it was almost like being on the beach itself (our dogs especially liked the freedom to play with us there!). Very nice outside showers! Larry was a delight and made sure everything was going well for us.

    Lovely week

    My sister and I rented this apartment last week (July) and had a great time. It's cozy, equipped with everything we needed and the hosts couldn't have been lovelier - they were there when you needed them but out of sight otherwise. They take impeccable care of the property, inside and out. There is a massive backyard with tables, a fire pit, outdoor showers and beautiful plantings. There is a 30 second walk to the beach which was never too crowded. It's also a very short walk to great restaurants, bars and activities. We will definitely try to rent here again!

    Perfect vacation spot!

    Wonderful experience staying in an unbelievably perfect location in a great apartment! A stone’s throw from beach and walking distance to anything you could want. Communications w owners was prompt and very accommodating. Dogs loved it too! We plan to return.

    Great location close to beach and town

    This apartment's location is excellent. Very close to the beach and walkable to all of downtown Dewey Beach. We loved that our dogs could stay with us too. (Must have a Dewy beach dog license - $10 per dog) The apartment is well outfitted with everything you need. The deck is nice to have. The yard is large and great to hang out and for the dogs to roam around. Dell is very responsive to booking and all questions. We had a great week!

    Nice, Dog Friendly Stay Steps from the Beach

    The apartment is not spacious (two bedrooms with queen beds are tight), but living room is more than adequate for 4 (we were only two) and the balcony was nice. The kitchen was well provisioned. The apartment was very clean, no evidence of being too dog friendly It is steps from the beach, which is a big plus. The owners were great to deal with and our dog and their dog had fun playing in their large backyard. It was raining on the day of our departure and the owners very graciously told us not to worry about the check out time and that we could have the apartment for the day, as they did not have it rented.

    Last minute Easter getaway

    Lovely condo in great location, central to Dewey businesses and quick access to beach. Dell was a gracious host, easy to contact and quick to reply. Fenced in backyard is great for dogs and humans alike!

    Jules & Ron & Pups DB Trip

    We had a lovely, relaxing and enjoyable stay at this beautiful condo. It was everything it stated it was. The owners are kind and attentive and their gorgeous pup, Molly, is a doll - I absolutely love her. My pups enjoyed their stay as well - they loved sitting on the balcony and walking on the beach in the morning. The guests in the other units were also very nice!! Their dogs were absolutely sweethearts also. On a side note, everyone we encountered in Dewey was very respectful of the COVID19 distance rules and mask wearing. It is greatly appreciated.

    Great home away from home feeling

    Great location just a few houses in from the beach with no need to cross roads, etc. Dell and Larry were very warm and welcoming! The apartment is very well-appointed; everything you need in the kitchen and extra pillows, etc. to make you feel at home. The outdoor showers were great and made it easy to transition the whole family from the beach to dinner etc. without having to take turns in the bathroom. Will definitely be back!
