Why Mark Goldstein chose Delaware

We fell in love with this property the day we saw it. We have ever since celebrated many holidays, anniversaries, birthdays and other wonderful family time. Fig trees, fruit trees, blueberries, raspberries dot the property. There is also a cook's herb garden out the back door. Just a day or two at our home will convince you that this unique property is a place to come back to time and again. Whether it is the beach, the porches, the nearby restaurants, long bike rides, kayaking, the golf course, the nature preserves - there is something here for everyone.

What makes this house unique

Broadkill beach is a hidden gem on the eastern shore, a quiet residential community with friendly neighbors, a private beach just for residents and guests, full of families, dogs, bonfires and other great summer activities. It is quiet, relaxing and private, yet just a few minutes away from the popular towns of Lewes, Milton, and Rehoboth. This way you get it both ways - a quiet relaxing beach and lots of nearby restaurants and stores.

Great Secluded Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect home to enjoy a beach vacation with your family away from the crowds of the more popular Delaware and Maryland destinations. The house is beautifully decorated and comfortable, so we felt right at home. We enjoyed making family meals in the well-equipped kitchen and cooking out on the spacious deck. On the nights we didn't feel like cooking, we hopped in the car and took short ride to Lewes or Rehoboth, which have some great restaurants and shops. We loved the convenience of the very short stroll to the private beach. During our stay the water was calm and warm - which made for a much more relaxing swim than the Atlantic. It was also a big help to have beach chairs and umbrellas already at the house. The owners are great and available to help with any questions or suggestions. We definitely recommend this house and Broadkill Beach as a wonderful family beach vacation.

Wonderful house and ideal location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time staying at Mark's home in Broadkill Beach, Delaware. Everything we needed was right there! The house was very clean and the layout was just great! The kitchen has lots of space to work and prepare meals with everyone trying to help, even the little ones! We enjoyed riding our bikes down to the Broadkill mall and getting fresh donuts on Sunday and fresh sticky buns and cinnamon rolls on Tuesday morning. We are already anxious to come back again next year!

A Peaceful, Relaxed Spot

  • 4 of 5

Our family truly enjoyed this beautiful home!! The house was perfect for our little clan. It was clean, comfortable and very cozy. It had a great layout - a nice deck, open concept kitchen, and comfortable bedrooms. Its located very close to a private, quiet beach - which was awesome for our young kids. We would definitely come back!

Home-Chef Hideaway

  • 4 of 5

Our group of 12 had a wonderful time at this house, nicely located steps from a beach with more horseshoe crabs than people (granted, it was late May, and raining) and a short drive to an active bird preserve. It's way away from the bustling crowds, so we gave up on restaurants and busied ourselves in the well-equipped kitchen, enjoying meals under a gorgeous sky (before the mosquitoes descended) on the deck. Keep in mind that there are two airy bedrooms on the top floor, sharing a bath overlooking trees and stars; one small double off the open living space on the first floor, sharing a windowless bath with whoever's sleeping on the spine-challenging convertible; and bunk beds for kids on the twilit level below, where there's a windowless half bath. The lower level also has a roomy screened gathering space, great for those who want to stay up past bedtime without disturbing the elders. Around back there's a private outdoor shower, an overflowing herb garden, and a sunny clothesline—and yes, it did stop raining!

To get away from the madding crowds

  • 5 of 5

If you want to get away from the hubbub of Ocean City, Bethany, and Rehobeth, Broadkill is a sliver of land between the Prime Hook wildlife sanctuary and Delaware Bay -- peaceful and quiet! The house is beautifully decorated with a lovely kitchen and big open main room.

Property was very nice! Great decor and comfortable sleeping quarters!

  • 4 of 5

Had a wonderful stay at Broadkill Beach. The house was very spacious. The only downfall was that it was very buggy when hanging outside on the deck.

Car: necessary

The property is in a quiet residential area nestled between a federal wildlife preserve and principal eastern shore bird sanctuary and sits just 400 feet from the beach. The beach is a private beach for residents and guests, and a great place for dogs, bonfires, families, fishing etc., as it has few of the restrictions in place at major public beaches in the area. Broadkill beach is 5 minutes from the waterfowl marsh and wildlife preserve, 10 minutes from downtown Milton and Lewes, and 20 minutes form downtown Rehoboth - great places to head for dinner or nightlife but close enough to return to the quiet of Broadkill!
