About Jason Matthews

Jason grew up spending summer vacations at Lewes beach and we now enjoy spending our own vacations here with our boys.

Jason Matthews purchased this house in 2006

Why Jason Matthews chose Lewes

We enjoy the charm of Lewes and the relaxed feel it offers for low-key family time at the beach and in the community, while also offering other amenities and forms of entertainment a short distance away.

What makes this house unique

This property has been in Jason's family for many years and when we designed and rebuilt the current home several years ago, we did so with families in mind, making it a place where extended family could gather and relax together as well as providing space for quiet respites. It has proved to serve us well in this regard and it's proximity to the beach and biking on Bay Ave are a huge bonus with our children.

Lovely home and great location just a block from the beach. 6 of us stayed for a wedding at the yacht club and we had a great time.

Outstanding family home.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Lewes DE last year and fell in love with the beaches and the historic town. We have not been together with both our sons and their families for a long time. This was the year, and this was the perfect property-- a modern, roomy but cozy, family-friendly home. We are grateful to Jason and HomeAway for enabling a long-awaited and successful family reunion. We hope to return next year. Best vacation property we have ever rented.

Spacious, clean and close to Lewes Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this lovely, spacious, clean home with many modern conveniences close to Lewes Beach! We had plenty of room for eight week-long guests and two more who joined us for a couple of days. Plenty of room to spread out in bedrooms and sitting areas on three levels, as well as on several porches and landings. Kitchen and dining, living areas downstairs were the main hubs for our family gatherings, easily accommodating our numbers. A one block walk to the beach was our daily outing, where we could relax and enjoy the quiet, uncrowded, family-oriented Delaware Bay experience. We enjoyed running, biking (great trails around Lewes), swimming, walking, stand up paddle boarding. Great restaurants were minutes away in beautiful historic Lewes, with a small town feel that added to our enjoyment. This is a great home for a family gathering at Lewes Beach!

Well kept, plenty of room

  • 4 of 5

The house was very large, it slept 6 adults and 3 kids comfortably. The crib was a great bonus. Plenty of room to give each couple their own space. The kitchen living room area was great, it was definitely the most popular area throughout the week. The screened in back patio was a nice touch to keep the bugs out. Only (minor) setback was the later than usual check-in time (4pm), not really a big deal however we lost a day on the beach. Would recommend this rental to anyone with a large family or traveling with other families. Thank you, Jason!

Beach Access/Info:

The house is located on Camden Ave which is a side street off of Cedar Ave which runs the length of Lewes Beach. The beach (which is an easy 2 min walk) is more or less 'private' to those staying on Lewes beach as the closest public parking area is over 1 mile away. Also, the beach is large and great for kids as the waves from the Delaware Bay are much smaller than the Atlantic Ocean.

Downtown Historic Lewes:

Second Street has unique, charming shops and a variety of restaurants to choose from. The downtown area also includes historic landmarks, waterfront access, museums, parks, and community events.

Recreation:

Options for biking abound; from a leisurely ride down Bay Ave to more long-distance rides on the bike paths that connect Lewes, Reboboth and Cape Henlopen State Park. Fishing opportunities are plentiful as well. You can surf-fish right off Lewes beach anytime in the off season and during designated hours in the summer. Further, there are piers, inlets, and charter fishing opportunities all within 1-2 miles of the house. For water sports, kayak and paddle board rentals are available through outfitters in Lewes. Cape Henlopen State Park is nearby as well, accessible by bike or car. It offers numerous outdoor activities of its own, including ocean access, hiking, frisbee golf, basketball, playgrounds, and observation towers and other landmarks from WWII.

Nearby Attractions:

Rehoboth Beach is a short drive away and offers the traditional boardwalk activities & excitement. Rehoboth is also home to many popular outlet retailers, providing entertainment for the avid or recreational shopper.
