About the property

3 Bedroom, 3 bath, 3 floors with surrounding decks, just steps from the beach.

Welcome to our home in Cape Shores, Lewes! With three bedrooms and three full baths, it’s ideal for three couples or a family of up to six.

We’re just steps across the private community street from the bayfront beach, even fewer steps from tennis courts behind our home, and a nice walk or bike ride to the community pool, clubhouse and pier.

We keep the calendar on this site updated to help you plan. Please check it to make sure your dates are available.

Our home is three floors with the main living space, kitchen, dining and master bedroom on the top floor. Two more bedrooms and a TV sitting room are on the second floor. Decks surround both second and third floors and all bedrooms have access to the decks through sliding glass doors.

Several renovations have been made, including new flooring, renewed decks, new windows and doors, and new designer furnishings.

With decks front and back, you can find sun or shade at any time of day.

Enjoy your coffee and the early morning sun out on the open back deck, overlooking the tennis courts. A table and ceiling fan in the screened porch in the back makes a perfect spot for a crab feast. By afternoon, the sun moves to the front deck, where you can watch the Cape May-Lewes Ferry traverse the bay. The second floor decks provide shade. There is a private outdoor shower on the ground floor in the back.

Indoors, the third, top floor is a bright and sunny open flow from the kitchen to dining to living space. A laundry area and powder room are adjacent to the kitchen. The master bedroom with a queen-size bed and its private bath are also on the third floor.

On the second floor are two more bedrooms, one especially spacious with plenty of floor space, and both with queen-size beds. All beds have Tempur-Pedic mattresses.

Also on the second floor is a sitting room for TV or games, a great spot for kids and separate activities.

Cape Shores has its own beach on the bay, fishing pier, pool, tennis courts and clubhouse. It’s also perfectly situated next to the Cape Henlopen State Park for the ocean beach, hiking, biking and running the trails.

Cable TV and Internet are provided. Please bring your own towels and bed linens.

There is sufficient off-street parking for four cars.

No smoking and no pets please.

We require half rental paid upon booking and the balance one week prior to check-in. Please contact us with any questions or special requests.

Why Judy Rayner chose Delaware

What's special about Lewes Beach spans generations. Suffice to say, we think it's the ideal beach spot for foodies, for families, for adults and kids.


Car: recommended

The town of Lewes Beach is graced with excellent restaurants, bars, quaint shops and galleries. History buffs enjoy its designation of being the 'first town in the first state.' Lewes is minutes away from the popular (and crowded) vacation towns of Rehoboth and Dewey Beach, so it's easy to visit for the boardwalk and more amusements, and then retreat to our peaceful spot in Cape Shores.

A wonderful place.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in this home. We booked 1 week and wished we had booked 2! Very nice spacious house, convenient to everything you need or want in the area. The 3 stories gave us any privacy we wanted and w/no elevator, I felt I got good exercise for the week so was quite happy with the stairs. The house was clean and contained everything we needed. Lewis is a nice town, and the beach just across the street was quiet and never crowded, as was the appreciatively pristine large pool area....w/a very nice gentleman overseer who kept any potential unruliness with visiting children at bay. It was wonderful. Rehoboth is only a 15-20 min drive and I was completely surprised with the area. I had presumed it would be like a lot of crazy beach boardwalks, but I was totally impressed with it's cleanliness and not as crowded as I would have thought....the Boardwalk was clean and no craziness took place. The shops were a mix of upscale and touristy, which was nice for the kids. The best part was Thrashers French Fries, which I've decided are the best in the country so far....and I am a french fry connoisseur so trust me! My 5 yr old and 8 yr old grandchildren said they would come back to this area "but only if we can have this awesome house". We hope to be back !

We were happy to come to a clean home with new rugs and fabulous furniture...and we love so much about Cape Shores. However, the quality of appliances and cabinets, lack of a grill, outdoor landscaping (it was overgrown with weeds), made us realize the quality for the price of other rentals in Cape Shores...

Also, though much of the artwork is interesting and thoughtful, some were a little disturbing.

Owner's Response: Hi Catherine, Thank you for your feedback. We're accustomed to hearing all about happy vacation experiences so we take your comments very seriously. First, we're glad you were pleased with the clean and new space and furnishings. We were also appreciative that you notified us about weeds in the yard. We reminded our landscaper of the importance of our property's appearance and conveyed our dissatisfaction; he responded with immediate service and a pledge to be more attentive going forward. We steadily replace the appliances. At this time, they are nearly all new. I hope you can understand our decision as homeowners not to provide a grill outdoors; we've been witness to too many accidents to risk harm to people and property. And finally, I'm a professional artist and understand that artwork can be provocative. Again, our sincere thanks for your comments and for taking good care of our home during your stay.

We had a great stay. The house is great for a beach vacation perfect location. Beach is calm and low key. Perfect for families with small children. Owners were also very responsive to an issue we had.

Great house! Wonderful vacation...

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time in this beautiful home. It was well furnished with comfortable beds and enough space for 6 of us to spread out. The location is right around the block from beach access which was perfect. The beach was never crowded and my kids enjoyed the calm water. The community pool is a bit further away but it is an easy walk. We enjoyed visiting Lewes and Rehoboth (not far and a great boardwalk experience) and took the ferry to check out Cape May. Judy was very responsive and we will definitely be back. Thanks for sharing your lovely home.

Great house in Lewes!

  • 5 of 5

My family, 4 adults and 2 small children, had a great week at this house in August 2016! The house was bright and clean with lots of useful amenities. There's only one TV in the house, but we were able to work around this. It was our first time vacationing in Lewes after spending years going up to Cape Cod, and we really enjoyed Lewes and the surrounding area. We also really liked the Cape Shores community features that came with this house - especially having the beautiful bay beach and lovely community pool nearby. Judy was great to work with and very helpful. We hope to be back next summer!
