Few miles from the beach in a country setting
average rating of 4.96 based on 25 reviews

A quaint hideaway in rural Delaware, but close to all beaches.

  • 5 of 5

The guesthouse on Jaime's property was very well done and was perfect for my wife and I. It was so nice to getaway from all the crowds at OC, Bethany, and Rehoboth and come relax at night. The kitchen was well equipped including a charcoal grill that we actually cooked dinner 2 out of the 3 nights. We had a great time!

Lovely spot!

  • 5 of 5

The backhouse guest house is in a lovely setting, and is a quiet getaway with fabulous facilities. It's easy to get to the beach and other attractions in the area, and nice to come back to a quiet setting at the end of the day. The owner is very friendly and helpful, the guest house is clean, comfortable and well-appointed.

Loved the place!

  • 5 of 5

A nice little place to stay close to the beach and in a romantic country setting! My boyfriend and I stayed here over memorial day weekend to celebrate our one year anniversary and it was perfect! The owner (Jaime) and his daughter were very accommodating and were very nice. The place wasn't too far from the beach and my boyfriend and I rented out beach cruisers and rode them to get there! It's the perfect place for a romantic getaway!

The property was better than the photographs.

  • 5 of 5

The property was better than the listing described. We enjoyed that it was centrally located and that we could easily visit many of the Delaware beaches and then return to a quiet setting that was not crowded by tourists.

We made day trips to various beaches (Bethany, Fenwick, Rehoboth, Ocean City, and Assateague Island) and enjoyed returning to Bethany Beach during the evening hours for the family entertainment (concerts - movie night) and to see the sun set.

Jaime was a charming and excellent host and we would definitely visit again and recommend his place to our friends.

Beautiful Country Setting and Close to the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We decided to take a vacation kind of last minute so we were worried that we wouldn't be able to find a nice place to stay. Fortunately for us this apartment was available!

The apartment was very clean and well-maintained. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything we needed to cook or reheat simple meals. The bathroom was spacious with a large shower and good water pressure. Initially we were kind of worried since we read that the water was supplied by a well but we had no problems at all with showers, flushing the toilet, etc.

The property is in the country so it's a nice, serene setting but it's only a few miles from shopping centers, restaurants, and the beach. We were able to drive to Fenwick Island and Bethany Beach within 10-15 minutes.

One of the days we were there it rained quite a bit so we were unable to go to the beach. We could have gone outlet shopping or out to eat but it was nice to have cable and wireless internet available so that we could stay in and enjoy some down time.

Jaime was very welcoming and told us everything we needed to know upon our arrival. It took us a little bit longer than expected to get there but he was very patient and flexible with the check-in time. He also made check-out very quick and hassle-free.

Overall a great experience. We would definitely recommend this property to others!
