The Best Location in Dewey Beach 'Baywinds'

  • bath Property Type : Condo
  • bath 4 Bedrooms

  • bath 10 Sleeps


This property has undergone major improvements over the years. in the recent past
I replaced all carpeting in the town home with tile, wood and Laminate flooring.  Four twin beds have been placed in the loft and small back bedroom.  Two full beds were placed in the master bedroom and One full be was placed in the back bedroom.  New lighting has been added to each downstairs bedroom. The unit now accomodates 10 people in beds.  
The kitchen was refurbished with new wood cabinet doors, a granite countertop, new sink and faucet.  A soap dispenser and water filter were added to the sink. The appliances have been upgraded with a range/oven, Dishwasher, and new refrigerator this year (2016). New washer and dryer were replaced two years ago.
The location is at the end of the street from the Bottle and Cork nightclub and two blocks from the Starboard Bar. It is short walk to everything Dewey Beach offers. And it is one and a half block to the Ocean; the bay and sunsets are viewable off any of the three decks in the front of the unit.  
There are two dedicated parking spots in front of the unit, an outside shower and a porch off the back bedroom provides a cool spot for relaxing after the beach sun.  The unit is available for partial weeks, weekends, and weekly rentals.  Also the unit is not available year round. Rental season is circa 15 May to 15 September and I usually winterize the property in late October or early November.
The unit will have a wifi system in it during the season.  A key access lock box is installed on the frame of the front door.  It will be disarmed during your stay. A phone is no longer provided, since most folks are using cells and telemarketers are a nuisance to those on vacation.   A new 42 inch LCD TV has been wall mounted on the Main deck and new flat screen TVs are located in on each floor.  There are pictures on the web site to more accurately reflect the current changes. Dining room chairs were replaced with metal chairs last year and a new dining room table is plsnned for next year.

I temporally block your time and send you a one page contract. You usually have 10 days to review and sign the contract and return it to me with one half of the rental amount in the form of a personal check. Your time is now unblocked and reserved for you. There is no booking or service fee. As your time to go nears, I send you two documents - House rules and house updates. The balance of your rental amount is to be paid one month prior to your arrival. If you fail to send the balance at that time, I will call you and access your status and mine. If I can re-rent the time, I will return one half of your original deposit. If I can not re-rent the time, I will retain your total original deposit. The more time you give me to re-rent the unit the better for me and for you. If you wanted to cancel 90 days prior to arrival, I would return one half of your deposit. If you gave me 120 days notice to cancel, I would return 75 percent of your deposit.

Location Information

This is the best and closest best beach to three metropolitan areas on the east coast. Washington, DC; Baltimore; and Philadelphia.

This used to be a real party town. That has changed and much effort has be spent changing that image to a more family oriented environment.

Area is known and the summer home for many of Washington, DC lawmakers. There are more 5 star restaurants here than in the rest of Delaware.

The beaches of Rehoboth and Dewey have consistently been rated the best on the east coast.

Again depends on where you are in life. I am older and love the September time frame. But I was young once and bought my first summer place here in 1976. In 1998 I retired here.

From Washington and Baltimore you have to cross the Bay bridge that is route 50 east Continue east on routes 404 east and pick up route 16 east. Continue on route 16 until you get to route 1. Go south and it takes you right into Rehoboth and Dewey Beach. If you are coming from the north, pick up route 1 out of Dover. Continue on route 1 until you get to Rehoboth. Stay on route 1 and it will take you straight into Dewey Beach. Route 1 is also called Costal Highway.

There is a local transit system that serves the area during the summer. Best way to go to the boardwalk is to park your car in the shuttle lot and take the shuttle bus to the boardwalk.

Weekends are very crowded and can be a bit wild. Weekdays are much less crowded and family friendly. Depends on where you are in life.

Locals call it "Dewey Beach" A way of life. People of all ages have fun here. You can walk to the beach and all the bars and restaurants you want to. Park your car and leave it.


You can spend a lot for meals and drinks or you can spend a lot less. Depends on what you like and who you are.

About the Owner

I have owned property in Dewey Beach since 1976. The property provided a weekend escape from the grind of a very demanding career in the CIA. In 1995, I upgraded my property investment to the current unit. Not sure where I might end up after I retired, I wanted a place that I could live in for extended periods when I was not traveling. As it turned out, I retired and built a new home two miles from the beach property. I maintain the beach property as an investment for my family and rent it to others who enjoy the beach and this rather unique location.
Fred W Henry Jr purchased this Condo in 1995

Why Fred W Henry Jr chose Dewey Beach
This is the best beach area closest to the metro areas of Washington, DC, Baltimore and Philidelphia. I discovered this in 1976 when invited by friends to stay at a place they owned in Dewey Beach. I enjoyed the environment, restaurants, and activity so much that I bought a condo in the same location two weeks later. I appreciate what we have here so much that I decided to retire here.

What makes this Condo unique
I do not stay at my property anymore. I live here. However, on occasion, I will go to the property with friends after we pick up a cooked lobster dinner at the super market, have cocktails and enjoy the most glorious sunsets off the mid deck. What is unique about the propery is during the summer, you do not need a car. There are great restaurants, bars and night clubs within short walking distance. And you walk one and a half block to get on the best beach in the proximity of three metro areas. You can fish, play golf, shop at the outlets on rainy days, or just sun yourself at the ocean or on the decks at the unit. There are night clubs with major bands in the evening and all day entertainment at many bars/restaurants. You can unwind with a book or engage to your hearts content. It is all here for you to enjoy.

Great Location, Property, and Weekend
Michael G.

Stayed here with a group of 10 guys for a long weekend. House was everything we wanted; clean, spacious, and location. Fred went the extra mile to go over everything in the house upon arrival and answer any questions. I would highly recommend staying at this condo, it is close to everything in Dewey Beach.

Spacious in a great location
Deborah B.

The house was plenty big for nine of us (six adults and three kids). The balcony overlooking the bay was a nice place to sit and enjoy the view. The kitchen was well stocked with cookware. The living room and dining room were open to kitchen. Furniture and beds were comfortable. Fred was very friendly and gave us a complete tour of the house and was open to answering any questions. He had plenty of cleaning supplies as well as laundry detergent. The walk to the beach on the ocean was two blocks and food and entertainment was all within a few blocks. We all agreed that we would stay here again.

Amazing location!! Amazing Condo!!
Erin M.

Fred and his condo were fantastic! He met us to do a walk through of everything we would need to know about the place and answer any questions we had. The condo has been updated and is larger and better overall than the pictures reflect. The location cannot be beat - right down the street from all of the great Dewey spots (Bottle & Cork, Jimmy's, Starboard, North Beach, etc). But you can't hear any of the noise from those places at the condo. Beach is just one more block - so easy to get to! We will definitely book this space again for our next Dewey trip! Thanks Fred!!

Plenty of space for sleeping. Would recommend and would definitely stay again !
