[ RIP ] Walls’ Apartments and Cottages Rehoboth DE – Traditional Living

Sadly they’re demolishing Walls’ https://www.capegazette.com/article/more-walls%E2%80%99-apartments-rehoboth-be-demolished/212747



Original 2016 Post:

Located in the heart of downtown Rehoboth Beach, Walls’ Apartment and Cottages is one of the last vestiges of authentic “Traditional Living” lodging in this ever-changing seaside vacationland. Still so old-fashioned that they don’t have a website or online booking, they are an affordable way to stay at the beach…by the day or by the week.

It says so right on the wall of Walls’! Walls’ Wall 😉

For decades Walls’ was run by matriarch Mrs. Ann Walls McCool, who purchased the business in 1951. Known for hand writing and mailing the booking confirmations to her many repeat guests, she sadly passed away at age 96 just a few short years ago. Longtime property manager Andy Ross carries on her legacy, making no big changes to this place that many families call home summer after summer.

A combination of motel-type rooms, “apartments” and larger freestanding cottages, the no-frills accommodations are clean and eclectically furnished. But do you go on vacation to spend all day in your room? No!  All units have air conditioning, but if you want a shower instead of a bathtub, you’ll need to specify. Many come with old-fashioned screenporches shaded by mature trees – a perfect place to cool off after a day on the hot beach.

Two changes to Walls’ inch it closer to the late 20th century, but will be a benefit to guests who prefer to live online. There is a Walls’ Apartments & Cottages Facebook page with photos of most of the accommodations, and wifi has been installed.
