Older couple, woman is German and the man is a retired teacher. They will fill you in when you book. She will tell you to put a little pillow over the (shared) bathroom door lock when it's not in use. They encourage use of the wrap around porch. So it definitely feels like visiting grandma and grandpa. But it is...

First this is the cleanest place I have ever been in my life and extremely well maintained. You have a shared half bath that is extremely clean. The showers are outside , tiled and does have a roof. Water pressure a little low for trying to get sand out of places where sand should not be. However a perfectly acceptable...

I feel privileged to have found this lovely rooming house. As stated by other travelers, life here is totally unplugged, but the place is spotless and lovingly tended by Haede and her husband. Very inexpensive, close to it all. Definitely felt like I'd stepped back in time. But when you want to just spend time at the beach, what else...

Staying at Holly Haven is like staying at your relative's house. Haide and Bill are great hosts and very warm and welcoming. We immediately felt at home. Keep in mind that this is a budget friendly Inn with shared baths on each floor and two outside showers. Make sure you bring a robe or large towel for trips down to...

This is a beautiful Victorian house located 30 seconds walk to the beach. The house is so charming, with a wrap-around deck and rocking chairs where you can enjoy complimentary coffee and fruits from the garden each morning, or your own drinks and snacks in the evening. We have stayed several times over the past two years and love every...

Where else can a couple stay at the best beach town in America, in the beach block, a hundred yards from the boardwalk, for around $100/night in a place that is immaculately, spotlessly clean and generally well-kept? With off-street parking right at your door? With really REAL old-fashioned charm and hospitality and a front porch where you can wind down...

Before WiFi and cable TV...there was a time when only sailors sported a tattoo....and people who rocked were sitting on the front porch in chairs. If you want to revive that era in a more casual setting than in a stuffy Victorian Hotel then this may be the place for you. Great location in the heart of town with parking....

Holly Haven, run by Bill and Haide Earl, is a great, inexpensive place to stay at Rehoboth Beach. If you can handle shared bath and outside shower (private) this is a great choice. House is on ocean block and parking is free. Enjoy the large front porch with tables for eating your carry-out. We have come here for several years...

My wife and I were looking to stay in Rehoboth Beach right after the July 4th holiday and prices for hotels within a reasonable walk to the beach were generally north of $300/night. We stumbled upon Holly Haven which had a vacancy at a comparably dirt cheap $90/night rate. The place is just a block away from the boardwalk and...

Staying at the Holly Haven was a lot like staying at the grandparents' house, at least as far as the atmosphere went, and the owner's are pretty old-fashioned (think no internet). We actually had to mail our deposit check! However, if you need your wifi and you have xfinity, you can get onto an xfinity hotspot from the porch. The...
