1500 Sqft Vacation Home hosted by Christine
8 Guests . 3 Bedrooms . 2.5 Bathrooms


Recently renovated and newly furnished in 2018!

This home is available for year-round enjoyment to non-smokers who enjoy a nice seaside community. The location is perfect for parking your car (two off-street spots and one street permit) and enjoying all Rehoboth Beach has to offer. Family Tides is a straight 2.5 block walk to the beach, and 4 short blocks to Rehoboth Avenue. Walk to shopping, restaurants, Farmers' Market, and of course the famous boardwalk/Funland!

One level 3-bedroom 2-bath living (with exception of laundry), sleeps 6 in beds. Additionally, home has an unfinished basement with two futons,TV, and 1/2 bath, which is ideal for adolescents and teens, allowing a maximum occupancy of 8.

We are pet friendly for one approved, well-behaved (under 60 lbs, on flea/tick maintenance, nails trimmed) adult dog, fee applies. We supply a crate, dog bed, bowls, and treats. For walks, we provide flashlights and doggie-doo bags.

Pack your clothing and personal items, the rest is awaiting your arrival to Family Tides in Rehoboth Beach! We offer almost every need including freshly made beds, bath towels, beach towels, cooler, umbrellas, beach chairs, boogie boards, cart, and more! We supply toiletries in the baths, hand soap at sinks, as well as laundry and dish soap. We also provide two spa-style bath robes (one size fits most). Those who stay with us appreciate that we provide paper towels, toilet paper, napkins, and food storage containers. If you choose to dine-in while in Rehoboth, we have everything a creative cook needs to prepare and serve a meal. In a nut shell, you have plenty of room for Grandma, as you won't have to pack a lot of extra items, nor take home dirty linens and towels!

Everything is new for the 2018 season! All kitchenware is Williams-Sonoma and other upscale brands. Our home is professionally decorated with custom furniture. Like our other property that we opened to guests for several years in Rehoboth, it has high end finishes included in the bedroom decor. Master bedroom has a firm king bed and ensuite shower bath. The second bedroom has a plush queen bed, and third bedroom has two twin beds. There is a hall bath with tub/shower.

We have an outdoor private shower for sandy beach days. We have a gas grill in the back yard along with picnic dining table and some chairs. Don't forget the screened porch, a favorite gathering place for socializing, curling up with a book, and people watching.

Hospitality is our focus, and we recognize discerning guests enjoy a vacation home with nice finishes and attention to the details that make it vacation-ready as soon as you open the door!

We are a self-manged owner-operated vacation rental property. Don and Cris have hosted families in Rehoboth Beach on Philadelphia Street for 6 years, with over 50 5-star reviews, nothing less. We are never more than a phone call away, and have plenty of local people who can assist with concerns during your stay.

Don is semi-retired, Cris runs the vacation rental, and our three kids are in college. We look forward to welcoming you to Rehoboth, and hope that you become a member of our cottage family.
