WE HAVE A COMPLETE BEFORE AND AFTER BOOK IF ANYONE WISHES TO SEE IT WHILE VISITING US!
We just wanted to let you know about The Rodney Dunes Pier 12 Management and a little something about our family. We are a family owned & operated business. We purchased the building in 2001 and completely remodeled to make this a cozy comfortable place to be able to relax and enjoy your vacation. We had to completely redo everything from the ground up.
My husband, Larry, is a Delaware native having lived in Smyrna all his life. I am originally from Augusta, Ga, Home of the MASTERS GOLF TOURNAMENT. We have been married for 47 years this March and have three children, Jeryl (daughter), Chuck (son) and Todd (son) as well as Marc (son in law), April (daughter in law), and Renee (Todd's Fiancee). We also have four beautiful grandaughters, Taylor Renee age 20, Sydney Leigh age 18, Elayna Grace age 13, & Ava Marie is 7 years old
Between all of us and the wonderful cleaning crew we have, we do all the work that is required to run Rodney Dunes Pier 12.
This picture taken in 2005 is our family with my husband's grandmother in the center. She was 100 years old in March, 05. We lost our grandmother right after her 104th birthday in March of 2009, my husband's mother died in January of 2010, and my father in law in September 2012
LARRY & DELL TUSH
Since I am a mother, I felt each apartment needed a full size kitchen complete with dishwashers because I feel that mothers are on vacation as well as their families. Moms do everything for their families so it should be as easy as possible. And let's face it, none of us like to do dishes. We have tried to make the apartments as inviting as possible and are always open to suggestions.
The addition of the balcony to Apt C was very well received and everyone seems to love it. We wanted to put a balcony off Apt B as well but due to set back codes with the county that is not allowed.
Without the help and cooperation of my son in law and daughter, Marc and Jeryl Moore, and our son and daughter in law, Chuck and April Tush this would never have been possible. They devoted every weekend to the remodeling of this building. This was a major undertaking and everything had to be done. We completely gutted Apartment B & C and started over. Once finished these apartments are now available year round use.
Apartment A is the original cottage and we have gradually made changes to make it one of the largest three bedroom units all on one floor in Dewey Beach. The living room has real boards of wormy chestnut as the walls so of course we wanted to leave that intact. This apartment also has hardwood floors. Some of the things we did do include a new updated kitchen with a European feel and updated bathroom, wall paper, and paint. We enclosed the screened porch to make a beautiful dining room and Florida room with a unique shell wall. We also added a third bedroom, 1/2 bath, and a laundry center. We put laminate flooring in the dining room and Florida Room. We also upgraded the Flordia room furniture and TV as well as the addition of two beautiful wood and iron beds in the double bedroom.
One of the biggest accomplishments was the replacement of all the windows and the addition of vinyl siding. We also added a pitched roof to the porch area and over the front door of Apt A.
We also updated our backyard with new picnic tables, new grills, new fire pit, new wicker furntiure and lots of plants. Our guests just love it.
I also would like to add that our friend Wayne James deserves a big hand for all the help and support he gave. Had he not come and brought four of his workers with him, the outside landscaping would not have gotten done. They put in all the pilings and helped move the outside building so that we could open up the back yard for a picnic area. We now have two very nice outside showers with hot and cold water. Everyone that uses them wants to build one at home because they enjoy them that much.
Some our tenants have been coming here for thirty years and still continue to come now that we have bought the place. Our hope is that anyone that rents from us will want to come back each year because they enjoyed their stay that much. Ours is a family building and as such we feel each and everyone is special and we hope they will become a
