The Royal Cabana, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, For Rent, Summer 2018, Summer Cottage, Old Fashioned Beach House, Rent by The Week in Rehoboth Beach, Sleeps 18, Large Group Rental, Ocean Views, Southern Delaware Beaches, SoDel, Old Rehoboth Beach House

I showed a friend of mine a photo of this house and he said “that’s a beach house”.  A house with casual imperfections.  You can relax and sit without having to worry that your sunscreen will stain expensive slipcovers.  Better yet, the old hardwood floors which have been tested through the years, still can handle some sand.  Sweeping might be a thing of the past but not on this “old beach cottage” we call the Royal Cabana.

Some of the old fashioned beach houses are disappearing in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, just like they are disappearing in many beach communities throughout the United States.  We came to these houses for their simplicity, for the beach, to run around, have fun and relax.  Rehoboth Beach still has a few and if you want to experience old time charm, the Royal Cabana will be a good choice.  It has history, as well.  This house is well over 100 years old.  It was, actually, moved from Baltimore Avenue to Lake Avenue in the 1990s.  Yes, here in Delaware we move houses. If only its walls could talk.  I am sure they would be filled with stories from the families that called this beach house home. I call it a well lived home.

Located by the award winning Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk, it is a quiet street at night. During the day you can enjoy the beach, the kids can walk the boardwalk and go to Funland. On weekends, music by the Bandstand is always fun.  You can walk everywhere from this house.  Hit the 3 main streets in Rehoboth Beach; Baltimore Ave., Rehoboth Ave., and Wilmington Ave. for shopping, dining and listening to music on any given night. Or, you might want to enjoy the Porch and stay put.

A bird’s eye view from the second floor shows why this beach house has the perfect location.

A screened in porch in the back.

One of the joys of coming out of the ocean is taking a shower outdoors.

The Royal Cabana is pefect for multi-generational reunions, large groups, families, and friends get togethers.  I remember last year there was a bachelorette party that stayed at the beach house too.

It can sleep 18 people and everyone in their own bed.

When arriving at the Royal Cabana… and flowers on the table, old fashioned candy, and chips are welcoming after a long trip.


For more information, please email  This house is also listed on AirBnB.  Look for Rehoboth Beach House with an Ocean View.  It is hosted by Cabana Boy and he answers quickly.

As you enter Rehoboth Beach there is a sign that says it all.

Have a great time now and in the upcoming Second Season.

Rehoboth Beach, Delaware Beaches, The Nation’s Summer Capital, Warm Weather, Blue Skies, A Taste of Summer!


A Taste of Summer!!  You can just tell Rehoboth Beach is ready; excitement is in the air.  My parking Angel came on handy as I found parking just by the Bandstand on Rehoboth Avenue, overlooking Thrasher’s, Kohr Bros, and Dolle’s!!


Then, another telltale that summer is upon us is The Jolly Trolley….a great way to get around.  It was parked right by the Bandstand, waiting for customers.  The Jolly Trolley celebrates and shares the sights, smells, colors and characteristics of the Rehoboth Beach/Dewey Beach Resort areas.  Friday, 5/10, until 2 a.m.  Saturday, 5/11,  10 a.m. until 2 a.m.  Memorial Day, The Jolly Trolley will be servicing the area every day from 8 a.m. until 2 a.m. $2.50 one way.  Children under 5 years of age pay $1.  For more info., please visit


I spotted a kid coming out with a freshly made funnel cake!!  He showed it to me and this really screamed summer!


Then I asked the friends from Smyrna, Delaware if I could take their picture with their summer favorite.  From Kohr Bros!!  One just showed me the cone; the other one was not shy.


Then, I turned around because it smelled so good…Thrasher’s French Fries!!  Perfectly cooked, crispy….hopefully, she showered them with vinegar.


The Boardwalk Grub…it’s what you will remember.  Rehoboth Beach has wonderful restaurants.  They are really good!  But, there is something about hitting those summer favorites, right by the water!!  Priceless!

Which reminds me that the Rehoboth Museum, located on Rehoboth Avenue by the Visitor’s Center, is opening an exhibit called “Beach Eats” on Memorial Day.  It will feature memorabilia from establishments both old and new that have served generations of locals and beach-goers for years.  According to the Rehoboth Beach Historical Society and Museum Director, Nancy Alexander, the eateries in the resort city bring back many happy times and stories that go along with them.


If you happen to have memorabilia from local restaurants that you’d like to share for the exhibit, please call her at 302-227-7310.  Visit

It was great to see the Boardwalk crowded.  And, the ones sitting by the beach were enjoying one awesome day!



Playland is already opend on the south side of the Boardwalk.


The Beach Arcade on the north side of the Boardwalk has also opened.


Summer tends to have an effect on people.  It is that laissez faire attitude, when we let things take their own course….so when you leave it all behind this summer to come to Southern Delaware, remember….
