3 bedrooms/ 2 baths/ Bay Views from Twnhome
Though I live in St. Croix, I was born in Delaware and always came to the beach with my family during the summer. We enjoyed jumping through the ocean waves, having picnics under an umbrella and going to the boardwalk at night. We kept our boat in Dewey Beach at Pier Point Marina. In those days, Snug Harbor was a bay front apartment that my mother always admired. One day as we cruised by on the boat, she called out to the owner, “Please call us if you are ever interested in selling!” It wasn’t long before she got that call and our family purchased a dream come true. When Snug Harbor Apartments was replaced by a small condominium complex, I couldn’t wait to buy my own unit (pictured in this listing)! In the early 70s, a job transfer took my own young family on an adventure. We moved to the US Virgin islands and raised our family of five there. Despite the move, we continued the tradition of summering in Dewey so that we could spend time with grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins and continue to build on those special memories. As a teacher, I could spend significant time off-island come June and I started renting my place to help finance our vacation. Now, my children bring their families to Dewey to gather with family and have fun. We like to walk, bike, skim, surf, and enjoy breathtaking sunsets from our own private beach.
Owner purchased this Townhouse in 1982
Why Owner chose Dewey Beach
Our unit at Snug Harbor has placed us in a prime location on the bay, with its own private sandy beach and 6 foot privacy wall that keeps us separated from the hustle and bustle of street traffic. Since this is a small complex that caters to families, it has always suited our needs and high expectations. The sunsets over the water are spectacular! We can walk to everything once the car is parked in its private spot. New restaurants open every season and we are never disappointed! CONDO ASSOCIATION DOES NOT PERMIT GROUP RENTALS, so you are welcome to sink in and relax without the worry of being kept up at night by noisy neighbors.
What makes this Townhouse unique
Snug Harbor #5 is attractive and well-maintained, recently updated with fresh ceiling and porch paint as well as recessed lighting in the living room and kitchen. The addition of custom living room furniture makes the place sparkle. Beds are comfortable and the kitchen is well-equipped. There are two screened porches (one on each of our 2 levels, each offering entry to the unit) which we use all the time for eating, card playing and sorting shells. Once you arrive, there's really no need to get back into your car. Walking, biking, boating or taking the trolley to the boardwalk in Rehoboth seem to be the norm. An established park located next to our property is lovingly tended and offers another beautiful spot to sit and enjoy the wide variety of activities on the bay. Those with small children can walk one short block north to find a children's playground complete with picnic table and shaded seating area! The ocean beach is a quick walk away. Many great features and perks at an attractive price!
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
What a great family vacation location!! The private beach and access to bay makes this place! Central location to all “eats and treats.” Snug Harbor #5 is comfort, cozy and clean. Beds were comfortable and AC units worked well. Just an FYI - 1 TV with only 10 basic channels- not the place to be a couch potato! We were active morning to night, so didn’t mind it. Already thinking about returning next year!
Thanks so much for your kind words. I love it when guests comment on being comfortable and. finding things attractive and clean. We really try our best to have everything perfect! Looking forward to seeing you next year!
Perfect beach location
Great location!!! Easy walk to beach, stores, and restaurants. Very clean! A little small for the 5 of us but I would definitely stay again!
So glad you had a good time! Our location is perfect; you can hit the beach and all the fun locales with little effort. Not only do I appreciate your review, but your note telling me you enjoyed yourselves was much appreciated as well! Please do visit again; we would love to have you!
Great location for beach access and to explore other DE and MD points of interest
Great location; beach access across the street, Rehoboth board walk a trolley ride away, or Assateaque Island about 1 hour drive. Snug Harbor great for families or friends. House has so much "usable" space, including screened porch at front and another at "master" bedroom. This will be a repeat for us. Thank you
You.re so welcome. Thanks for this wonderful review; we aim to please! Looking forward to seeing you again soon.
Fantastic long weekend away!
Perfectly located, charming condo that will not disappoint. Walking distance to the beach and a stones throw from your private bayside beach. House was homey and charming - highly recommend!
Thanks so much for reviewing my property. The front beach is ideal and literally a few steps away from the front door; so happy you enjoyed it. Please visit again!
Wonderful stay. Beautiful sunsets over the bay!
We enjoyed the location with the short walk to the beach, walking to the local restaurants, and taking the Jolley trolley to Rehoboth! Also very impressed with how clean and well kept the unit was. It is a little small, but worked out well for our family of 5!
Thanks so much for the glowing review! I let my cleaner know about your comment; she tries very hard to be sure everything is spic and span for my guests, so she really appreciated what you had to say about finding things so nice and clean. Please pencil in Snug Harbor #5 for another visit next season. I would love to have you!
Beautiful property for family time
Beautiful, gated property with private beach. Condo was very clean and well kept. Plenty of room for the whole family. Loved the two screened in porches with a beautiful view. Owner was amazing to work with. Looking forward to staying there again.
I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. Snug Harbor is a great choice for families; there's so much to see and do in the area. I agree, the view from both porches is amazing! It's consistently interesting and beautiful.
I will certainly pass along your kind words to our cleaner. She has been on the job for many years and takes real pride in getting things in perfect order for guests. Nothing tells the story of a property better than the words of someone who has actually stayed there and experienced it for themselves. Thanks so much for sharing!
Dewey Beach offers many activities to its guests. You can find most watersports, delicious places to eat and attractive bars with entertainment. For those with small children, there are several spots that carry dairy-fresh ice cream to eat on the way to our own playground located just down the street from Snug Harbor. Ours is a walkiing destination; no need to get back in your car. Bikes are available to rent nearby too.
