Awesome Location

  • 4 of 5

Broadkill Beach is an awesome serene community. The sunsets and the full moon viewed on the deck can not be beat. You are footsteps away from the beach. We were even able to view the Antares Rocket Launch from the deck. The home is conveniently located between Rehobeth and Dover. This was a work trip for us girls and Bob was more than accommodating. Everything you will need is included in this rental. The property is old fashioned and very clean. On an amusing note and as an FYI for short people....the kitchen is made for giants! The overhead cabinets are mounted abnormally high in the kitchen. I am short at 5' 4" and I felt like a kid relying on a coworker who is over 6' to reach things. It was comical.

Deliciously serene

  • 5 of 5

A uniquely peaceful experience in tis homey, beachy and surprisingly larger than you'd expect house on the ocean. I love sitting on the porch watching and listening to the ocean all day long. Bob is a great host and a kind person. The house is just what you need for the stress of city life and daily grind to fall away. Broadkill Beach is a quiet, beautiful treasure. For those who want a simple, serene vacation, this is a great place. Thank you Bob!

A True Relxing Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I traveled to Deleware for the first time this summer. This house was just perfect for us! We wanted to be able to walk out the door and feel the sand under our feet, and that's just what we did! We spent so many relaxing hours together enjoying the water and building sandcastles. One highlight was seeing the dolphins swim off the shore. What a treat for the kids! The beach is expansive, but also quite private. It was just the escape we were looking for and are already thinking about returning next year. You really cannot get any closer to the beach!

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our main objectives for this family vacation was to get as close to the water as possible, catch as many fish as we could, and relax on the beach. This property did not disappoint. We arrived to a clean comfortable home with everything we needed, including beach chairs, a computer, tv and internet. The description of the property was accurate although the very recent beach restoration was not evident in the picture. Bob provided complete instructions upon full payment and was quick to respond to any questions providing excellent customer service. We will recommend this property to friends and will not hesitate to return. Have fun!

AMAZING VIEWS :)

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough great things about this rental. This was my first time in Delaware, along with my fiance, and we definitely plan on returning. The views are fantastic, you can't get any closer to the beach because you are right on it! The owner of the property is very thoughtful, as we found items there for our use that we didn't even know we needed! He thought of EVERYTHING! I highly recommend this rental to everyone. It was great for just the two of us but would also accommodate a family/large group.

Adult Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd year staying here. We arrived Saturday Oct 3 to route16 flooded but we got through high water and once on the island we were fine. By Monday the flooding had stopped. This is a very comfortable home and very peaceful. The beach replenishment has made a big difference. Thank you again for allowing us to rent your home. We look forward to next year.

Car: necessary

Located right on the white sands of the Delaware Bay with the 9000 acre Prime Hook Wildlife Refuge to the west, this is a place that really lets you relax. Bike, walk or jog the entire 2 1/2 mile length of Broadkill Beach with ease. Bring your binoculars and camera and do some serious bird watching at Prime Hook. The championship Rookery golf course is only 5 miles away and they also have a very nice restaurant. Bring your telescope for some stunning views of the stars at night like you remember from your youth. Once you've recharged your batteries, you can drive 10 miles to enjoy the hustle and bustle of Rehoboth or Lewes. Enjoy great restaurants, outlet mall shopping and activities for the whole family. Stroll through historic downtown Lewes or take a ferry to Cape May, NJ, with its picturesque Victorian waterfront. The Rehoboth boardwalk and Atlantic beaches are 17 miles away when you just have to have some saltwater taffy or boardwalk fries.
