Forj Loft – very comfortable and clean

We have stayed at Rehoboth Beach a number of times and usually have paid premium for a place a block or two from the boardwalk. This year we booked late and had to settle on a place not so close…but we discovered while we were there we didn’t settle at all. I had concerns about the distance the property was from the beach and the challenges with parking but we went to the beach almost everyday and were always able to find meter parking which you could park at for 10 hours. In addition, this property was in a safe area and close to the outlet malls. And best of all, we saved a good amount by not staying a block from the beach.
We were very pleased to see how well the house was stocked. They had many of your basic stuff you want in a kitchen. The glassware, dining sets, silverware were all nice and matched! One thing they didn’t have were wine glasses but we got over that quickly. The stove was a modern stove as is the entire place.
All the bathrooms are good sizes. The garage wouldn’t be able to be used to park in because of all the stuff in there. However, in the garage they had quite a bit of stuff you might use at the beach or even just at the house itself. Was great for our bikes though.
We did not use the backyard nor the grill but I can say the backyard is very well shaded and private. If we did use it we would have been very comfortable there.
The place was also very clean and modern with comfortable beds.
I do wish there was better operating AC on 3rd floor but it wasn’t horrible. Also, the kids room is on the ground floor where the main entry/exit doors are. That did make me nervous initially to have my kids all the way down there and us all the way up on the 3rd floor. However, the property did have these rods to place under the door knobs as additional security. Certainly helped ease my concerns.
Also, the outside hose faucet didn’t work so it was always a little tricky to get the sand off our bodies before entering the house.
The little patio from the second floor is in need of a resurfacing. You wouldn’t want to be on there without your shoes. The patio on the third floor though was nice, clean and private with good furniture. Down side was you overlooked busy route 1.
Finally, though the location did not cause a problem for us it is right off of Rt 1 and you definitely hear a lot of traffic in the mornings. Wasn’t horrible but if you are a light sleeper something to keep in mind.

Thank you for your reservation and for your feedback!

Since your stay we have taken care of the issues that you reported:

  1. Wine glasses – have been added.
  2. A/C issues on the third floor have been fixed.
  3. Concrete patio on the second floor balcony has been re-surfaced.
  4. Children’s room on the first floor has been relocated to the second room (two twin beds), and the first floor bedroom now has one queen bed and one twin bed.
  5. The external spigot has been fixed.

Regarding traffic noise. The property is located on a service road off of Route 1 Eastbound where the traffic slows to enter downtown Rehoboth Beach at the traffic lights. This does not seem to be an issue for most people and does not crop up in reviews very often. 

Thank you, Andy, Rental Manager.
