About the property

Updated 3-Bed, 1-Bath Condo On 2nd Beach Block

Wonderful 3-Bed/1-Bath English Basement Apartment on Maryland Avenue, 1.5 blocks to beach.

Park your car and relax for your vacation... You're at the beach! Located on the 2nd block of Maryland Avenue (a quiet street), this property is just steps to all the wonderful things downtown Rehoboth has to offer. There are two off-street parking spaces behind the home, and I also provide a parking permit for on-street parking.

Each bedroom has a queen bed, pillows, and a vertical fan. The beds have quilts, but you will need to bring your own sheets, towels, and other linens.

For those who like to cook while on vacation, the kitchen features a gas stove and oven, dishwasher, and large breakfast bar/countertop for prep. The breakfast bar has two stools. Also, there is a table with fold-down sides with four chairs stored inside of it. When coupled with two occasional chairs in the living room, you can comfortably seat six at the table. The kitchen is fully stocked, including coffee maker, microwave, toaster oven, hand mixer, pots, pans, bakeware, etc.. Also, since I used to be a renter, I know it can be a hassle when you forget to bring things like plastic wrap, aluminum foil, paper towels, and toilet paper. So, I keep those in stock at the unit. Even if you discover that you’re missing something, there are two Lingos Market convenience stores around the corner.

The condo has a wall unit air conditioner in the living room that cools the entire condo very nicely (one of the benefits of being below grade). It also has a free-standing air conditioner unit in the back bedroom of the condo (the farthest point from the wall unit) to ensure that you can get the place nice and cool even on the hottest days of summer!

The condo features high-speed internet, cable, and a TiVO DVR so that you can record your favorite shows while you’re at the beach. The living room has two queen futons and two occasional chairs which provide plenty of seating.

Next to the main entrance to the condo, you’ll find a large patio area. One half of that patio is for your use during your stay, and includes a table with 4 chairs. At the other corner of the patio is an outside shower for rinsing off after a day at the beach.

Several folks have asked what I mean by “English basement apartment”. An English basement is one that is partially below ground and partially above. So, in the case of my condo, you walk down a private stairwell to enter the condo. However, there are multiple high-set windows (about 5 feet off the ground) throughout the condo which make it 'light and airy' (in the words of one of my early renters). The ceiling is around 6’ 8”, and there is a lot of natural light in the unit, so the space feels quite comfortable. My place is clean and loved, and I bet that after you stay here once, you’ll want to come back. I certainly hope you will!

One note: Although I love animals and know they are family, I don’t allow pets in the condo. There are too many renters who have allergies. Also, I allowed 4-legged guests years ago in another property I had, and I found that it could be very challenging to get the place as clean as the next renters deserved.

Safety: If you are traveling with little ones, I have (in the pantry closet) child safety caps that you can put on the stove. I just ask that you please remove them when you are ready to leave. I also have smoke alarms, fire extinguishers, and other safety features in the condo.

About Jim Pressler

I live in Rehoboth Beach and love sharing our amazing town with visitors. I took a few years off from being a seasonal landlord, but jumped back into the pool with this property. My goal when renting has always been to give my renters an experience that makes them want to return--and tell others about my place. I always welcome feedback on ways I can improve the property or your experience as a seasonal renter with me.

Why Jim Pressler chose Rehoboth Beach

Most of the condos in downtown Rehoboth are 2-bedroom 1-bath units. This property offers 3 bedrooms and an amazing location at a lower price than the smaller 2-bedroom units.

What makes this condo unique

I love being able to walk to the beach and come back to the condo for lunch whenever I feel like it. And you can't beat the convenience for restaurants and night life: the majority of Rehoboth's downtown restaurants and shops are within 3 blocks of the condo.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Overall, the place was a fantastic value. Certainly for the proximity to the beach....Being able to walk to the beach, bars, and restaurants was fantastic...

Perfect spot for our weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

The basement apartment was extremely neat and clean. Humidifier in operation kept it very comfortable and dry. Parking in the back allowed us to leave the car behind and not worry about it during our time there. Location is close to the boardwalk and to Rehoboth Ave which made it super convenient for walking anywhere or picking up supplies. Definitely would come back here if it fits in our itinerary.

Great space with 3 bedrooms & lovely bathroom

  • 4 of 5

We loved the convenience of the apartment to the boardwalk. The apartment was great. The only thing we wished we had known was that it was in the basement (maybe I missed reading that in the description). There are 2 sets of steps that go down to the apartment and the one set is wickedly steep - since I have a vision problem, that was a little tricky. Otherwise, the apartment was great for what we needed.

4th Time Renting from Jim

  • 5 of 5

This is the fourth year in a row renting from Jim and it's always been a great experience. Check-in is simple and all information is provided well in advance.

This unit is a less expensive alternative to other properties so close to the beach - it's only a block and a half away and one of the few units in the town proper at this price. For a basement unit it is well-lit and cheerful. The bathroom upgrade looks great as well!

Thanks for another great stay Jim!

NYC Style Basement Apartment

  • 4 of 5

Cozy 3 bedroom basement apartment, was just what we were looking for. Steep stairway to the apartment, watch out for the first step. Kitchen well stocked, dishes as well as pots and pans to cook. I'm sure many do not cook as much as we did, but if your using the broiler, and a couple of the burners the smoke alarm goes off. Low ceilings. Only complaint is that the "parking lot," is a mud pit when it rains, and you have to go through the mud to get into the apartment. Considering the price, I would stay here again, but it is not for everyone.

Beach walk-down in the center of Rehoboth

  • 4 of 5

If you're looking to be close to the boardwalk, shops, and restaurants--then this place is for you. Jim is a wonderfully responsive owner and is very attentive to your needs. We slept 6, and even had room for a couple friends to hang out while in town. If you're looking for a walk to Poodle, be in for a 20 minute stroll to Queen St. But, if you are also looking to get to Aqua, Blue Moon, etc., then you've got less than 3 minutes. Quiet street on Maryland, with a three block walk to the boardwalk. Downstairs condo, little less natural light for some. Be aware, that while the A/C unit cools the entire place, if you are cooking/baking--open a window, all the doors, and pour yourself a cool one. Front room is lovely, with a nice a/c fan. The condo was clean, tidy, and we left it to our best when we checked out. Fridge/Oven/Dishwasher are all appropriate size for this unit--plan ahead. This is our second time staying in 3 summers, and is a great deal for proximity to downtown Rehoboth Beach. Easy to bring your chromcast/apple tv for your streaming pleasure. If the idea of six people in a downstairs condo scares you--don't rent this place. If you can get along for a week, and you divi-up the chores, then totally worth the rent. Remember to purchase your pantry items (seasonings, oils, etc.); kitchen towels; and to bring any specialized kitchen tools you might need. Knives are a little flimsy; but cooking utensils were adequate. We were able to make 6 brunches and 5 dinners in this condo. This kitchen is appropriate for a beach condo--we managed it. Very thankful for the condo; happy to recommend to others looking to break into the summer beach getaway.

Rehoboth Beach

Found on the 2nd beach block of Maryland Avenue, this location is surprisingly quiet considering the full hustle and bustle of downtown Rehoboth is just around the corner. Walk up half a block to enjoy Lake Gerar, or walk down 1.5 blocks and you're on the beach!
