Cynthia was very responsive for a late minute Reservations. Despite doing painting and repair- provided us full access and provided linens. Plenty of sleeping room for a family- we had a great stay and was able to enjoy everything from beaches, Paradise Grill to Dogfish Brewer…

it was a nice house. Thought it was going to be closer to the beach. the staircase was a little dangerous as it had small steps. the beds weren't very comfortable.

Response from Cynthia:
Thanks for your feedback, Beryl! The listing description notes that the house is about a 20-25 minute drive from the beach towns under normal traffic conditions (and it was 23 minutes for me after I pulled away from a parking meter a block off the ocean in Rehoboth last week); however, the drive may take longer during peak season, which is the case for getting anywhere when driving in and out of the beach communities. The staircase has standard-size carpeted treads and a side railing, but the top 2-3 steps do curve around so are narrow on the inside; therefore, if senior citizens are in the group, I would suggest they stay in the bedroom on the first level, which is only 2 steps up to the deck in the front (see photos). And finally, I have purchased a new queen-sized memory-foam mattress and frame for the downstairs bedroom, and will be replacing one of the double futons with a double bed with boxed springs upstairs. Those beds should be in place for the 2018 beach season, so I will update my listing description and add photos before then. Thanks again for your input. I appreciate it!

Ok, someone has to do it so here is the honest review of this place. It is a run down home where the walls are not even fully painted and there is no space for entertaining or gathering as a group. The entire layout of the place is cramped and very awkward. The neighborhood is …

Response from Cynthia:
I appreciate reviews that reflect honest feedback, especially since there is always room for improvement as a host. However, in all honesty, I do feel that Charissa, who arrived with unauthorized guests later in the evening and whom I never actually met, is being retaliatory because she was assessed fees both for having more guests than were in her reservation and for leaving stains that would not come out on bedspreads and couch coverings that her surplus guests slept on. In fact, I first found out about the extra guests from the neighbors who complained, and who provided both a car and head count, and I found further evidence upon arriving back at a house that had a musty beer odor, wet rugs, muddy foot and paw prints (from an unauthorized dog) on the floors, and dozens of cups and alcohol containers in the trash. So it comes as no surprise that a person who appears to have hosted an overnight party (which is not permitted on the property) might have felt a bit cramped and cooped up, especially on a stormy weekend. Further, as my listing states, this is a rustic home that is indeed located in a wooded residential community called Sherwood Forest, with multiple stores and restaurants within walking distance, so there is not really anything misleading about the description. However, if one is looking for a secluded cabin nestled in a forest, then, no, this is not the place – sorry! Finally, it is true that there were a couple of test paint swatches in the kitchen and on trim that has since been re-painted, that a sliding-glass door was sticking a bit (the rollers were replaced the next day), and that the initial guests arrived well after their stated check-in time; in fact, they were close to 3 hours late. However, I would like to clarify that the reason I vacuumed and “milled about” was because it had started raining while I was waiting so I had to pull my dogs in from outdoors and quickly re-tidy the room they had been confined in when the guests arrived (which I explained to them as we went on the house walk-through). That and I did take an extra fan out of storage and clean it while I was waiting for them because it was nearly 100 degrees outside. So, again, I do take guests’ feedback very seriously, and I do make improvements and try to be as accommodating as possible, based on their suggestions; hence the new appliances (and, as of this week a new bed!), as well as being on hand for a house walk-through when guests arrive. However, I also expect honesty, proper payment, and overall respect for my house, couches and neighbors (especially in terms of number of persons staying), from my guests in return. Thanks.

Cynthia is very accommodating and great to communicate with. Our flights were delayed so we got in really late, but she still stayed behind to greet us. Great central location to the beach and breweries too. Close to the woods so naturally there are a few bugs but her place is cl…

Didn't have the chance to meet Cynthia because I was in the group that arrived late but heard she was very nice! The house was okay, furniture were a little bit too old but not a big deal. The house was pleasant. Big and comfortable enough to accommodate all of us. Would definite…

Cynthia was super nice and her home is located in a woodsy neighborhood, close to plenty of stores, etc. Definitely not fancy, but everything you need (except wifi and cable tv). I would recommend, esp if travelling with pets.

Cynthia was great at accommodating my late arrival on a Friday night. She helped us settle in and answered any questions we had. Heads up: there's no wifi, which most of us now take for granted. However, it was a great way to disconnect for a weekend at the beach. There's a Giant…
