Rehoboth Beach is perennially ranked among America’s best beaches and it’s an absolute gem along Delaware’s Atlantic coast. This cozy beach town has the charm of a bygone era with an old-fashioned boardwalk, locally-owned cafes, and boutiques with a strong and organized community. There are year-round events and activities that make Rehoboth Beach a perfect destination, even outside of the beach season. That’s why we put together this list of the 20 best Airbnb Rehoboth Beach rental properties to help others plan their own getaways.
We have frequented Rehoboth Beach and other Delaware beaches for years. We have done summer-long group beach houses and off-season weekend trips as a couple. After so many of our own trips, we know the town of Rehoboth Beach inside and out. That knowledge led us to write the Gay Guide to Rehoboth Beach, a great accompaniment to this Airbnb guide for any sexual orientation.

When to Book an Airbnb in Rehoboth Beach
You can have a different experience in Rehoboth Beach from one month to the next, but you will love it any time of year. We can’t stress enough that this guide gives you an average price. Almost all of these properties use dynamic pricing so what you pay will ebb and flow based on demand. This means that in July can end up paying two times the average price that we have listed. In that same way, you can end up paying less if you plan an off-season getaway and stay in one of these gorgeous properties for under $40 a person per night.
Visiting Rehoboth Beach in the Winter
I’ve celebrated a few New Years in Rehoboth and it’s always been a great event with restaurants and bars full of people. While it’s nothing like a summer holiday weekend, there are plenty of people in town and it almost feels like a reunion.
Other winter weekends are less busy, but it means you’ll have good service, and every cafe, shop, and restaurant staff are excited to see you. The winter months are also fun to rent a nice home to just chill. Board games, hot chocolate, or a glass of wine make a great winter getaway in Rehoboth Beach.
Most restaurants remain open all through the winter, so you can easily walk in and get a table at Dogfish Head Brewery or The Pines.
Visiting Rehoboth Beach in the Spring
Springtime is one of the most lovely times to visit Rehoboth Beach. You catch the beginning of the good weather without the crowds and parking tickets that arrive in mid-May. It’s much easier to get around by car, most of the seasonal shops, cafes, bars, and restaurants are fully open and you can enjoy the town in a way that isn’t possible during the peak of summer.
Airbnb prices are usually lower in the spring, which makes it possible to find an affordable early deal on a group home. We have planned many spring Rehoboth Beach trips for friends’ April birthdays. While the water is still cold, we have almost always made it to the beach and can even layout when it’s sunny. Whether you stay beachfront or a few blocks away, you can drive to the beach without needing a parking pass and still enjoy off-season rates – it’s a win-win.
Visiting Rehoboth Beach in the Summer
As you’d expect, the peak season is July and crowds diminish outside of the summer months. From the beginning of May onward, more and more visitors head to Rehoboth Beach. The tiny oceanside town booms for Memorial Day weekend at the end of May and there’s a consistent flow of visitors until Labor Day in early September.
This is the prime time to book an Airbnb in Rehoboth Beach. You should be prepared to spend a little more money per night and BOOK EARLY, especially for large group houses. During holiday weekends (Memorial Day, July 4th, and Labor Day) this is especially true – it’s just a matter of supply and demand.
If you’re visiting as a family vacation, this may not be as important to you, but we personally love an Airbnb in the summer months because after-party culture is big in Rehoboth Beach. Since the bars close at 1 AM, it’s super nice to have a place to go back to for a nightcap and a hotel just isn’t the same.
Visiting Rehoboth Beach in the Fall
Just like visiting Rehoboth in the spring, the autumn months mean smaller crowds with just as much fun. The town feels different and almost more personal and authentic in the shoulder seasons. September is possibly the best month to visit Rehoboth because the weather is still fantastic and the ocean water is warmer than in early summer. Best of all – you have the beach almost completely to yourself.
In the fall months, you can also park your car without worrying about a parking pass and you’ll find good deals on your Airbnb homes in Rehoboth Beach. The annual Sea Witch Festival a popular weekend to visit and Halloween in Rehoboth Beach is always a blast.

Ready to Book an Airbnb in Rehoboth Beach?
If you’re still reading this, chances are good that you’re going to plan a Rehoboth Beach trip and likely going to stay in an Airbnb. Here are some things to remember as you plan your trip.
- Parking during the summer season (May through September) can be difficult and parking tickets are common. Make sure you know the parking situation of the house you book and plan accordingly. This may mean carpooling or purchasing a weekend or week-long parking pass.
- Many hosts in Rehoboth Beach do not include bed linens, so carefully read the listing that you book and plan to bring your own bed linens and even towels if necessary.
- Pricing and early booking reminder – remember, if you want to book a place in the peak summer season you should book early and be prepared for higher prices.
- Consider off-season fun! In the same way that prices are higher and many homes are occupied during the summer – off-season weekends in Rehoboth Beach are a lot of fun. It can be a whole different experience besides cheaper and easier to find a house.
- Key pick up or remote entry? Many homeowners will give you detailed instructions for entering the house when you arrive. It may be a place to pick up the keys or a code to enter on a keypad. Make sure to ask for this information if you aren’t informed of it right away.
