About Lesley Giampietro

Brother and Sister purchased beach house together in 2004. Both families enjoy all that Slaughter Beach has to offer as a get-away from their homes in Maryland.

Lesley Giampietro purchased this house in 2004

Why Lesley Giampietro chose Delaware

Very quiet beach neighborhood, community playground with tennis and basketball. Your own sandy beach with beautiful sun rises. Public boat launch is just over a mile away. Groceries, adult beverages, and fuel can be found in Milford, just a few miles away. Still, close to entertainment (Dover Downs, Lewes, Rehoboth and Ocean City Beaches), history (Dover Air Force Museum) science (Dupont Nature Center) shopping (3 full outlet centers in Rehoboth with tax free buying).

What makes this house unique

Beachfront, within 75 feet of the waters edge, very quiet, beautiful bay scenes during the day and wonderful night skies with views of Cape May Lighthouse at night.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Slaughter Beach was relaxing and beautiful. What a great way to welcome the New Year. This home was perfect for our gang of 6. plenty of space for quiet time with 3 living areas, as well as room to gather all to together. We enjoyed the beautiful beach view from the front sitting area, and even had some mild days for walks on the beach. Thanks for a great time.

First beach vacation

This was the first time my family has vacationed at the beach and we all loved it. The house was great had everything we needed. The beach wasn't crowded and we could relax. We can't wait to do it again soon.

Good house on quiet beach!

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely stay with family and kids. The home was clean and comfortable - plenty of room for all. Beach location is ideal for those who don't like crowds. Bay water was perfect for the smaller kids in our group. Would definitely book again - thank you!

Perfect for families with kids

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. It was perfect for our group of 4 adults and 4 kids. We especially loved the views of the water from inside the home and the proximity to the beach. The kids had a blast roaming around the shallow water during low tide. The house was clean and comfortable. We will be back!

Not as expected

  • 1 of 5

Let me just say that this house did not reach my expectations. Before we even walked in, my husband placed a folding chair, very light, on one of the outside chairs and the arm just fell off. When we opened the door, we were greeted by an incredibly strong musty odor. We were also greeted by a fly infestation. It took us 4 days to get rid of them, having to go out and buy fly strips, which are disgusting, and continually use fly swatters. To give you an idea, there were at least 50 flies on one strip, and these were biting flies. Between the the smell and the flies, we spent very little time downstairs. The two grills outside were unusable. The gas grill was rusted, I guess because it had no cover, and the charcoal grill had stuff caked on it like it was used but never cleaned. We actually had to go to Walmart and buy a grill to use. The house could have been cleaner, especially the freezer. We knew we would have to bring sheets and pillowcases, however, the mattress protectors had round yellowish stains on them. We chose to sleep in the upstairs sitting room on the couches. The view is nice and the deck is nice but the deck had some boards sticking up that we did not see until we tripped on them. The other complaint I had was about the washer and dryer. We always look for houses that include these so we do not have to pack as much. The washer and dryer were old and encrusted, not clean. I had to take dirty clothes in my suitcase to wash at the next house. My family and I really look forward to vacation every year so to go through some of this stuff was very disappointing. I do not go on vacation to sleep on a couch. We had very high expectations because of the other reviews, however, we were happy to leave when the time came. Thankfully we planned for our second week at another house. I would not vacation here again.
