I look forward to speaking to you. And occasionally i will meet you as well!

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Milford

This is an older home that has been fixed up clean and nicely. It is a wonderful, roomy home to allow your family including pets to have a great time and to visit the more expensive beaches. This home allows you to have a place to stay and travel to Rehoboth,Dewey or even Ocean City without spending all your money on rental fees!

High tide brings a quiet bay beach...different then the busy rush and push of the Ocean.. Previous guest have loved this for small children, Enjoy The Bay at our home!!! Your children and animals will enjoy it. It is affordable to bring pets at a 50.00 fee. each. WE, love animals, and ours go everywhere.Because of the extra clean home you will be occupying,We do charge additional fee of 50.00 per animal for cleaning purposes. Please take care of our home as if it were yours.. so we can keep prices down. Your 500.00 deposit is returned as long as no damages or smoking has NOT occurred. WELCOME to our Clean Home! 980.00 a week plus 50.00 each for any animal each and 300.00 security deposit which will again be returned provided there are no damages or excessive cleaning. We have only had one accident in seven years,which was 135.00 for a doggie chewing the woodwork. Accidents happen and we understand.

What makes this house unique

The Quiet Bay allows the safety of your young children to play. Very quiet town, Not a noisy town full of traffic and arm to arm people. There is a lot of nature around to see and many close places to travel to in Milford Delaware and Milton Delaware for great Seafood. Meddings Seafood in Frederica Delaware is well known and only 15 minutes away. Google Meddings!!! Irish Eyes in Milton Delaware is also very good, along with many others..AND if you are here do not forget Delawares famous Beach Pizza GROTTOS, which now is located in Milford Delaware too and offers delivery to Slaughter Beach. Traveling to the larger Delaware beaches: Rehoboth is only twenty minutes away( 23 miles) Dewy Beach which is known for the fast action and late parties, is 25 minutes away (23.9 miles) Ocean City Maryland about 60 minutes away ( 53 miles) You will hit Beautiful Fen-wick Island prior to Ocean City.

This house is my Serenity. I am self employed and often hide out here to enjoy quiet time, less traffic, and sitting on the front porch with all the windows open enjoying the breeze off the bay, A great place to read a book or just have your coffee in the morning. When I need more excitement and bigger waves and all the wonderful things on the Eastern Shore, I am only 20 to 30 minutes away from the Ocean, The Outlets which are tax free, Wonderful places to eat, The movie theater,Golfing, Enjoy our Home. Bring Your babies (doggies ~upon approval!!!)Because of the extra clean home you will be occupying,We do charge additional fee of 50.00 per animal for cleaning purposes.

Another great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a few lovely days at this wonderful house just after Christmas. So nice to see it in winter and all decorated for the holidays! As always, the house was perfectly clean and inviting and the owner even went out of her way to leave gifts for me and our family. We'll be back again!

very good

  • 4 of 5

ver all the experience was good however,although the house was spacious enough and we were only three people the house could use another bathroom preferably upstairs if ther e are 4 or more people would be inconvenient a light for the up stair stairs would also be helpful the property was well maintained and convenient to sites in the area,.not to mention the beach and wildlife areas. yes we recommend the property for family and children

Clean and inviting home, well stocked with all your cooking needs.

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the location of the property. You are able to walk to a quiet bay beach or take a few mile drive to the many beautiful beaches that Delaware has to offer. Plenty of places were within 10 miles to buy food and supplies. If you enjoy fresh blue crab there is wholesaler who sells to the public next to the DuPont nature center. The home backs up to a nature preserve so wildlife abounds. Janet is prompt in answering emails and provided plenty of information on things to do in the area along with a stack of menus from the local restaurants. The property also offers plenty of games to play in case of rainy days. There is plenty of room in the house so you are never forced to be on top of one another if the weather is not cooperative. If it is damp be sure to pack some cutter or off as with any shore town the mosquitoes come out at night. We had a great stay and if we return to Delaware this home will be our first choice.

This was the second time we stayed at Janet's place and again it was a great! She is easy and quick to communicate with and gave us a very nice gift basket upon arrival. The house is right across the street from the beach and we enjoyed Slaughter Beach most days of our stay.

Truly a fisherman's dream located just steps from the Bay and just minutes from launching your boat. Four hours south of New York City, two hours west of Washington, D.C, one hour north of Ocean City, MD, and located 20 minutes north of Rehoboth Beach. Rehoboth Beach is full of exciting things, including the boardwalk with rides and great food. Don't miss your cold stone ice cream, thrasher's fries and Grottos pizza. If you don't like the beach, try the exciting water park 'Jungle Jims'. Raining? Visit the outlets or the midway movie theater in Rehoboth as well! Tennis and Golfing are just ten minutes away. We're minutes away from State Parks, where you can enjoy surf fishing, the bike trails or just relaxing on the beach. Don't forget to bring your quarters because Harrington Slots or Dover Downs Casino and Horse races are only 20 minutes away! Enjoy a ride on the Cape May Lewes Ferry, just twenty minutes away. At the end of the day, come back to a quiet home!! Peaceful!!!

Other Activities: Surf fishing, Boating, very close to historical Milton, short drive to outlets and destination beaches

Golf: Golfing is everywhere around the Milford area as wella as the beach!!!! THE ZOO IS IN SALISBURY MD ONLY 45 minute drive!!!!! NICE town for a zoo visit and even more shops,antiques and another MALL!!!!!!
