About the property

- 3 bdrm, 1.5 bath, outdr shwr, Slps 8 ($starting $1020)

Love Rehoboth, but want a break from the crowds? Want peace and quiet in a natural setting? Then rent on direct beach/bayfront on the white sandy Broadkill Beach on Delaware Bay....just a dozen country miles NW of Rehoboth. Beach comb, fish, canoe, hike the wild life preserve, golf, enjoy the bay view from a huge porch. We hope you can come see for yourself! Enjoy the natural setting, the natural beauty, the natural quiet!

And, due to popular demand, wireless internet and cable TV has been included.

Broadkill Beach, where the house is located, is a quiet old fishing village that is entirely residential (all single family homes), and one quaint country store. The town is NW of Rehoboth/Lewes, close enough to hop in the car to hit the outlets, restaurants, or the boardwalk, but far enough that you enjoy peace and quiet. Broadkill's sandy beach is great for sandcastles, kayaking, beach combing, and the huge wildlife refuge (Primehook) is another attraction. A few miles inland is historic Milton, home of a huge collection of Victorian era architecture, bookshop, antique shops, ice cream parlor, as well as being the home of a couple of Delaware's 19th century governors--there large homes are still there. This is truly an area for all kinds of vacation tastes.

Together, the beach, the country store, and the cottage create a 'Summer of '42' type setting (as my neighbor calls it). The house was built while the baby boomer's were still riding skate boards and the 'greatest generation' was still the 'working generation'. We have, in fact, summer patrons who came here first as children themselves, and they now bring their grand children. The cottage includes a huge porch and a deck.

The cottage also includes the living room, and 3 bedrooms. The one full bath and one half bath inside is complemented by a shower stall outside. There is more parking than you can use, complements of Broadkill's low density of housing. Lastly, the house and the porch face on direct beach/bay front. At night you can see the twinkling lights of Cape May, as well as the pitching and rolling lights of the Lewes-Cape May Ferry.

We spent a week in July with extended family. The house is the perfect size for family bonding, with enough room not to be under each others feet all day! The neighbors were friendly and informative! Only suggestion would be to leave a spare key at the house, 1 copy with 3 sets of adults going in different directions was a bit tricky. Great location! Would definitely recommend to friends

Quiet, relaxing, great views!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I spent the week this summer with my 4 y.o. pit bull. We were blessed with perfect weather the whole week and had a blast! The house has a great view of the water and the beach is quiet with not many people. The horse shoe crabs were a bit unsettling at first, but they are most prevalent in the evenings and not during the day at the beach. The pup loved walks on the beach and other dog owners we met were very sweet. The house itself is great! Has central AC which is amazing on hot days and a screened in porch which is great for morning sunrises. Would highly recommend!

Perfect place for a quiet, relaxing vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a week in hot, hot July. The place is adorable-- very cute "beach cottage" feel to it. If you are looking for modern, this is not the place, and I don't mean that in a negative way-- It was just what we wanted for our stay. Cozy! Very clean and well equipped! The kitchen has everything you would need. We were worried about the double bed being a problem, but it was very comfortable with good pillows. The beach chairs were mostly rusted, one was useable. We had decided to bring our own just in case! The porch was amazing. We had bay breezes all but one day, and even with the temp being 95 or above most days, we were cool on the porch. There is a strategically placed ceiling fan over the comfortable Adirondak chairs -- that was my favorite spot!! The washing machine was hidden in the bathroom closet- took me a minute to find it, but it worked well. The air conditioning worked well and kept us cool at night. Views of the sunrise were amazing! If I had to suggest anything to the owners, it would be to clean up the foliage on the side of the house near the steps. It is overgrown there..... Just a general sprucing up outside would be nice. Owners were great to work with, would definitely rent again, and recommend to all our friends. Great views of the bay, right on the beach, and very quiet. We are 60, and it was just what we wanted. We did not venture out much- but Lewes, Rehoboth, and Milton are just a short drive away with lots of activity and commercialism if that's what you like! The little store in Broadkill carries everything from toiletries to fishing supplies. On a side note, we both have been coming to Broadkill since we were children. It is our favorite beach in Sussex County. Perfect!!

Found a Gem!

  • 5 of 5

A perfect cottage for the perfect price. Quaint, private, nested in its own concise space right on the bay front. View the bay from the porch. Short walk to the beach; just over the dune. The beach and dunes are pristine, untouched by last year's beach renovation on the southern half of Broadkill. We have vacationed at many Broadkill rentals and we rate this cottage in the top few.

Wonderful weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the beach house with friends and were pleasantly surprised at how perfect it was! Loved the vibe at the house. Couldn't be closer to the beach! Easy drive into Rehobeth for Saturday night dinner at the Brewery! Mark and Ann were easy to work with and responsive throughout!

Quaint, and very comfortable beach house. We enjoyed our stay. Very quiet and relaxing! The beach was perfect for our kids (ages 5, 8). We fished everyday. House met all of our needs. If you are looking for a relaxing, quiet get away, this is the place. It was very peaceful.
