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!

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...

Fabulous Porch overlooks dunes and bay.

  • 4 of 5

We loved Broadkill Beach. There are lots of quiet surprises, including the fact that we could actually swim in the bay! In fact it's great for the under 5 set. Very relaxing and friendly environment, with long walks rewarded by incredible homemade baked goods at the Broadkill Beach store: donuts, sticky buns and brownies!!!

The house is very comfortable and well equipped. We lived on the porch. The panoramic view of the dunes and the bay, watching all the bird activity especially at sunset, was terrific.

But the best for us is the proximity to Prime Hook and Cape Henlopen. What wonderful resources! We love the birding at Gordon's Pond, Turkle's Pond, swimming in the ocean and long hikes. Great farmer's markets all around as well.

Tranquil Cottage Experience

  • 5 of 5

This home is the perfect respite from the urgency and drama in our daily lives. It was also enormously refreshing to unplug from all media outputs for a few days and completely shut down my phone.

Come here with a good book. Come here to write music or paint in the morning. You'll stroll along a shoreline peppered with crabs and an occasional human and dog.

The home is functional and equipped with everything a couple and some friends would need. There's only one full size bed, but there is also a full size futon on the porch. Two room are equipped with 2 twin beds each and there's a convenient half bath.

The kitchen has everything you'll need including a great cast iron pan. I sharpened the flat blade knives so they have a decent edge.

A grill gives you cooking flexibility and a chance to be outside even more often.

Don't come here to find people unless you cherish quiet, cordial passerby types. Everyone is polite and welcoming. But what we enjoyed most was the lack of people and a surreal quiet power in the night that pulled you deep and far away from everything that mattered. Perfect!

Simply natural!

  • 4 of 5

My boyfriend and I enjoyed the home on the beach. The view from the adirondack chairs in the sunroom was beautiful. It was the same view 50 years ago, just unspoiled nature!

If you want some quiet at the beach, this is perfect. Where else can you have the beach to yourselves in May? I collected shells and sea glass, and my dog enjoyed a good romp chasing sea gulls! We used the grill to make dinner, and ate watching the twinkling lights of the boats out in the shipping lane. We never turned the tv on.

We would've slept better on a larger, more comfortable bed than a double bed, but we just stayed 2 nights.

We would come and stay again.
