The city of Rehoboth Beach itself is very small (and expensive). If you were actually to live in Rehoboth proper, I don't think you could go wrong with any of it in terms of any of your circumstances. For anything else, you really need a realtor to advise you. There are plenty of gay realtors in Rehoboth. I'm familiar with a couple of gay male realtors there, both of whom are pillars of the gay community, so I'm sure could give you guidance. DM me if you would like their names and contact details. Realtors are the only class of business we aren't permitted to give a public recommendation for on this forum. You could also see if you can get an on-line version of Letters from Camp, the monthly publication of Camp Rehoboth, which is the LGBT community centre. It will have a lot of local realtors advertising, including lesbian real estate agents. Camp also has an fb page if you are on fb.

If you can afford it, anywhere is the small town of Rehoboth proper should be fine. West of Route 1 could be a bit tricky, however. If you happen to move into a community with transplants, you would probably be tolerated, if not welcomed. You might not find yourself as welcomed in a long-established local community. These stereotypes may be a bit dated - I'm not sure. If beachliz happens to see this, she might be able to offer an honest assessment of how a mixed-raced lesbian might fit into an eastern Sussex community a bit more remote from the beach itself.

As Jef says, a good realtor will be your best guide. Best of luck!

Agree with doctorjef--anywhere within the town of Rehoboth would be fine. And really, anywhere outside of Rehoboth/Lewes town limits within a five mile radius should be quite tolerant as well. Transplants are so abundant at the Delaware beach resorts and most of them would not have any issues with a gay or lesbian, mixed race couple. Not to say that locals would (most wouldn't), but even the older communities are mostly people new to the area anymore. I live in an older community, and 90 percent of the people here are from out-of-state. We had a gay couple in here (right next door) and everybody thought they were great neighbors. A couple older developments west of route one in the Lewes area come to mind as accepting: Sandy Brae, Rolling Meadows, and I'm sure there are others.

I think you'll find that 99 percent of the population at the beach would welcome you with open arms. I know that we have a growing lesbian population in my area and nobody I know says anything negative about this. Hope this info helps--please feel free to ask any questions pertaining to certain developments and I'll let you know the info I can recall.

I certainly agree with Liz's post. The area surrounding the beaches is very open. I live in the area. People are much more concerned with whether you clean up after your dog or how keep your property than what you do in private.

Excellent. I'll pass this on to her. She's vacationed there a lot over the years and loves it. And Provincetown as well. She did call a realtor, who never called back. Obvisously that could be for a number of reasons. She was hoping to talk with one while she was there last week. Being a member of this forum, I told her I'd ask for her. Thanks. I'm excited for her, now.

I reccommend Troy Roberts. He is a great realtor and we had a pleasant experience buying through him.

Oops...I'm not supposed to recommend? Forget I said that. I would be a bit careful on West Rehoboth; my suggestions would be the established communities of Spring Lake, Captiva Sands, Eagles Landing...get a good deal there and you will be fine.
