The space
This house truly offers a unique beach experience. The house was built by my great-grandparents in 1929 and has stayed in the family ever since. They named the home "Adelmare," which is Italian meaning "by the sea". My family and I truly cherish this house and we are excited to be able to share it with others!

The house is second from the beach and boardwalk, and just a block away from scenic Silver Lake. Open the windows to feel the ocean breeze in the summer, or cozy up next to the wood burning fireplace in the spring or fall. Adelmare offers a large, wrap-around screened porch and a smaller, more private screened in porch in the back of the house. The front porch is ideal for chatting with friends, reading a good book or having a meal on the large dining table. There are also two decks upstairs; one in the front of the house and one in the back. The decks are my favorite spot for enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning, or lounging in the sun in the afternoon. The stone patio, which holds four Adirondack chairs, is a magical spot situated in our tree-laden grove. Adelmare even has a shuffleboard court. Play a game after a day at the beach! The house is only a short walk or bike ride to Rehoboth Avenue, where you will find restaurants and shops galore.

There are five bedrooms and three baths in the house. Four of the bedrooms are located upstairs along with two of the bathrooms. Two of the bedrooms have queen beds, and two rooms have two twin beds in each. The upstairs bathrooms are located in the hallway just outside of the rooms. The downstairs bedroom is located just off of the kitchen and offers a double bed, tv, and a private bathroom. This bedroom has it's own semi-private screened porch (connects to the kitchen and the rest of the house) and can be accessed separately if you choose, from the outside of the home. Perfect for those wanting some additional privacy!

The living room offers a large, open space complete with a wood burning fireplace, flat screen cable TV, and plenty of seating as well as Wi-Fi internet access. Play a board game or have a puzzle going on the card table. Long, cushioned window bench seats provide the ideal space to curl up with a good book on a rainy day!

The dining room, complete with large table, opens into the living room. The dining room also opens onto the front porch, through double doors, where you will find another table suitable for 6 or more. Plenty of seating, indoors and out.

The kitchen, while nothing fancy, has all the appliances you will need including refrigerator, dishwasher, stove, oven, coffee maker, blender, etc. The washer and dryer are also located in the kitchen.

We also offer 4 adult bikes and one double sea kayak, located in the garage. The kayak can only be used in the ocean when lifeguard is not on duty. Can also be put in the ocean on Queen Street at any time. Rules for kayak use are posted in the garage.

I am a licensed Realtor with Jack Lingo Realtor. I live with my husband and our four wonderful dogs, Winnie and Hunny, Buca and Bear. Plus the occasional foster dog! I love experiencing all that Rehoboth has to offer, and spend as much time as I can on the beach. I love working in real estate and hospitality and Airbnb has allowed me to combine two passions. I am very active, I enjoy working out and and am always up for a new, fun adventure. My husband and I travel to Maine when I can and hope to travel even more in the future. I love being an Airbnb Host! I love getting to meet new people having the opportunity to offer my home to those wishing to experience Rehoboth Beach.
