About The Owner

I love animals and children, I have both! I love quality family time with my family, I enjoy decorating and adding a piece of something to the Beach house all the time. I enjoy meeting the people that I call my guest,and do all I can to assure them a wonderful stay.

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 Delaware

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! 950.00 a week plus 50.00 each for any animal each and 500.00 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. 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 occured. WELCOME to our Clean Home!

Love how much room we have in the house. So close to the beach and we can bring our dog

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd year staying in this home for a week. We had a blast. Walking distance from the beach so we enjoyed that everyday. Love that we can bring our dog with us and the little fenced in area she can walk around in. About 25 min from rehobeth so we went to the boardwalk too. Can't wait till next year.

Feels like home

  • 5 of 5

My family simply loves this place. We have been coming back for seven years and look forward to our next visit! Janet, the owner, is so kind and really goes out of her way to make sure we enjoy our stay. Her beach house has become our little home away from home in Delaware and has everything we could need.

Vacation home

Our vacation was fabulous! The house was very clean and Janet was very accommodating. It is a great house and beach for young children. We had a great time at the nature center as well. It is also a short drive to shops and restaurants!

Janet was so wonderful to work with. I had talked to her personally a few times which was very nice. My vacation was only for a few days and she was so kind to send me the lease agreement in the mail and for me to send back and she would save my dates. Then unforeseen family issues arose that I had to cancel my vacation all together. When I contacted Janet about the situation she was more than understanding and refunded my entire deposit. I will most definitely seek to stay here next year or as soon as possible. Janet was so friendly!! Thank you so much!!

Very cozy and tranquil stay at Slaughter Beach.

  • 5 of 5

We had an enjoyable stay at this property. Each room was nicely decorated and we felt right at home. There's a screened in front porch as well which was nice to relax in. Its location was very close to Slaughter Beach (right across the street) and a relatively short drive to the more popular Rehoboth and Dewey beaches (half hour). All around and on the property there were critters which were a joy to see. There's pretty much everything you need in the house for your vacation. Being able to take your pooch was an extra bonus! The homeowners were very nice and we would definitely recommend staying here!

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!!!!!!
