Rehoboth Beach isn’t just the most popular beach on the Delaware coastline, it is famous as ‘The Nation’s Summer Capital’. Tens of thousands flock here for idyllic seaside vacations each year. Some settle for Rehoboth Beach rentals if they can find them, while others choose to build their dream second homes here so that they’ll always have a place.
Once you’ve been it’s easy to see why Rehoboth is such a favorite. The area’s appeal goes well beyond the broad beach for catching some sun and surf. There is plenty to do on the water from skim boarding, to paddle boarding, kayaking and cruising. And Rehoboth Beach/Dewey Beach has been ranked as a Superstar beach for water quality – among only 35 beaches in the nation – by the National Resources Defense Council. On shore visitors can revel in a diverse lineup of outstanding dining and entertainment options.
Downtown Rehoboth offers charming stores, spas, innovative art galleries, and a real farmer’s market. There is always something fun happening, and plenty of year round festivals that make it worth the trip from anywhere in the US. In fact; as you arrive you’ll be welcomed by the ‘Mile of Style’, with numerous fashionable tax free shopping venues at the Tanger Outlet Center. You can even get married on Rehoboth Beach, and return to this magical Delaware beach each year to celebrate your anniversary and renew your vows.
For decades Rehoboth has attracted a substantial gay population from all over the east coast. The town prides itself as a place where people from all walks of life coexist happily and respectfully and sexual orientation is simply a non-issue for the vast majority of Rehoboth residents.
While definitely more vibrant than the town of Lewes to the north, the entertainment scene in Rehoboth is not as raucous as is sometime found in Dewey Beach to the south. Which is fine by residents from both towns. Rehoboth residents can walk, bike, drive or “Jolly Trolley” to Dewey for a night of live entertainment then return home to relative peace and quiet.
Rehoboth Beach vacation rentals and hotels may seem plentiful, but you can be sure they fill up fast right when you want to go. Local Realtors represent the majority of quality beach house rentals. Also Hotwire.com, Trip Advisor, and Airbnb, offer an array of B&Bs, vacation cottages, beach condos, luxury hotel rooms, and rooms for rent in stunning Delaware beach custom vacation homes. Prices are modest, but rise quickly as you move closer to the beach.
Those returning year after year can find purchasing their own Rehoboth vacation home or townhome a great move. You’ll always be guaranteed to have somewhere to sleep, and Delaware real estate always makes a great investment. Some may even choose to offer their places, or parts of them as Rehoboth beach rentals to others when not in use. It’s the perfect family retreat, romantic couples’ getaway, and potentially a great way to build up equity in your retirement home before you retire.
Rather than just buying any old cookie cutter vacation home, distinguished buyers are trending towards designing and commissioning custom homes in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.
This enables home buyers to customize everything about their vacation or second home in DE. Craft the perfect interior, views, and feel for you own enjoyment. Then it will truly be your own home away from home. Some may even choose to design separate guest quarters for visiting family, renting part of the property, or for housekeeping staff.
Those that don’t want to wait to build an entirely custom beach home from the ground up may be able to substantially renovate or expand an existing property with personalized design choices.
Building standards are evolving rapidly in Rehoboth with a clear trend away from allowing very large homes on a typical 50’ X 100’ lot. If you want to build a truly large home you will have to combine two lots or else look to neighboring communities like Henlopen Acres, North Shores, Rehoboth by the Sea or Dewey Beach.
