Overview

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.

Lovely house, great beach view.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. The sun room is fabulous, with a great view of the beach and water. It was very clean and comfortable. The owners were nice and easy to communicate with. We will be back!

Beautiful views from the front room! We spent most of our time there when we weren’t on the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Overall everything is nice. It is an older house but has the beachy vintage charm we like. Very quiet neighborhood and we basically had the beach to ourselves. When we weren’t on the beach we spent all our time in the front room eating, reading, playing games and just looking out at the ever changing bay. We will be back!

Great location, cute and charming

  • 5 of 5

Location is perfect! The view from the sun porch across the dunes and down to the beach is amazing. (Bring binoculars: we saw all kinds of flora and fauna on the dunes, including a pair of foxes and their new kits!)

It's not a luxury property, but it is clean and well-maintained and there is plenty of room. The beach is safe, quiet, and not overdeveloped-- perfect for families and kids. It's like stepping back in time. We can't wait to go back.

Great communication, very clean and beautiful setting. Even got to see a gorgeous moon rise

  • 5 of 5

Owners were very friendly and easy to communicate with. The beach was right at our fingertips and the other beachgoers were very friendly. The house was very clean, especially for being an older home - which can make it difficult. Would definitely recommend the area & this house.

Very nice home

  • 4 of 5

This is a nicely located home with all the basics and some handy items beyond basic too.

Unfortunately, I had emergency gall bladder surgery and only had one night here...
