Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath, sleeps 6

Lovely 2 bedroom, 2 bath cottage, sunroom with water views, large living room, cable and high-speed internet, new kitchen appliances, central AC, oil heat, ceiling fans, two TVs, master bath, fully furnished. Off-street parking and a nice yard with a grill for outdoor cooking. And it's just 60 steps from the beach!

Broadkilll Beach is a hidden gem on the Delaware Bay. Drive through the PrimeHook Wildlife Refuge (check this out!) to a small strip of beach that is The Broadkill. It goes approximately 2 miles in both directions from the main cross street. This is a great place to get your run in. There is only one commercial property that the locals call 'The Mall', where you can get most everything that you might need to enhance your stay. You might feel, at times, that you have the beach to yourself! The people of the area are terrific, friendly and make you feel welcome.

When you need to be near the hustle and bustle of the popular shore points, it's only a short drive away. Wander over rte 16 to the little town of Milton or make your way south on rte 1 towards the beaches of Lewes, Cape Henlopen, Rehoboth, Dewey, and Bethany. Take a 90 minute ferry boat ride on the Cape May/Lewes Ferry out of Cape Henlopen. Spend the day in victorian Cape May, New Jersey. Take your car, bicycle or just walk aboard. There is a trolly on the other side that can take you to town. Get some fresh, right off the boat, scallops at the dockside restaurant at The Lobster House. Check out Morrows Nut House on the boardwalk for some dessert. Of course you have to play some skeeball or you could wait until you get back to Rehoboth to try your hand at that. The SeaShell shop miniature golf always looks fun, back on Rte 1 in Delaware, or maybe you want to check out all of the outlets. Save the outlets for a rainy day as well as the movie theater that is close by too.

For me, a fun day at the beach is always great; Maybe have your morning coffee on the bench overlooking the bay;start in the morning with a walk to look for seashells; ride the waves; rent a paddleboard or soak up some Vitamin D; then a cookout - I can smell the charcoal-maybe some juicy cheeseburgers tonight? and don't forget the smores. On a clear night, look up and see the billions of stars that you won't ever see at home! It's amazing! Open all the windows at night so you can hear the waves while you have the best night's sleep ever! HAVE FUN!!

About Rich

We have been vacationing at the Delaware beaches for over 30 years and never knew about the hidden gem on the bay that is Broadkill Beach. We visited the area with friends and instantly felt at home. We think you'll love it, too!

Rich purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Rich chose Delaware

We love the beach and fell in love with this cottage the moment we saw it. We have vacationed at Broadkill Beach with friends and love the relaxed atmosphere there. The quiet neighborhood is perfect for a family retreat and just three houses off the beach!

What makes this cottage unique

Getting to the cottage is an easy drive since the route takes you away from the shore traffic. The best of both worlds, Broadkill Beach is a quiet and secluded place to relax in the sun, and it's also close to the nightlife, restaurants and shopping of the shore points. Also close by are Cape Henlopen State Park, and the Cape May/Lewes Ferry.

Our family loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Our 1st time at Broadkill and we will be back! This cottage was great for us and our 3 kids. The convenience of the beach so close was great for us. Rehoboth (where we have stayed before) was close enough to visit the boardwalk a few times or go to some of our favorite restaraunts. The house had everything we needed in the kitchen. Owners were easy to communicate with. Highly recommend!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed here and we have enjoyed both times. The house is nice, well stocked and furnished. It is conveniently located to a pleasant, quiet beach (a very short walk from house to beach), as well as several great places to eat (a relatively short drive away).

This is the first time I have ever gone to the beach and actually had peace and quiet! It was great! The cottage itself even helped us relax and unwind. Thanks for a great stay. We will be back!

Very nice cottage, roomy, well decorated, very close to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay, beach was private with very few people. Cottage was lovely, some cute shops in town, and close to the bigger cities. Would definitely recommend!!

The cottage is located in a quiet neighborhood just a few steps to the beach and minutes from dining and shopping in Milton, Lewes, Dewey Beach and the boardwalk in Rehoboth. The Cape May Lewes Ferry is close by as well for a day trip to New Jersery shore points.

The Rookery Golf course is just 2.5 miles from the cottage and boasts an excellent Sunday Brunch! Also, we are approximately 50 min from Dover.
