Overview

About the property

Tranquil Breezes and Stunning Views

Discover what awaits you at Blue Reeds, the most private house in beautiful Broadkill Beach with spectacular views of the marsh and bay. Our home has been fully renovated and contains five large roomy bedrooms sleeping a total of 13 people. Two and a half tiled/marble/granite baths provide all the comforts of home. A large fully-equipped kitchen with new appliances and a granite island seats six. Dining room can accommodate eight more. Huge Great Room with several sofas, large screen Hi-Def TV, and foosball table assures a relaxing retreat from the sun at the end of the day. Adjoining screened-in porch with seating for eight is a great space for evening cocktails with an optimal view of the sunsets over the marsh. Or better yet, take your pup and walk the few steps down the driveway and over the dunes to build your own fire on the beach to end your day. House has decks and porches on three sides allowing you to enjoy the best of the changing sea breezes anytime of the day (wheelchair friendly). Wildlife abounds all around. New sun deck off of the master bedroom. Outdoor shower (Hot and Cold) to keep the sand to a minimum. Fully fenced-in property with gate helps to keep the critters contained and allows them room to run. Four adult bikes, four junior bikes, beach chairs, sun umbrellas, water noodles, kiddie pools, and kayaks available for your use. Tax-free outlet shopping just down Highway Route 1 in Rehoboth. Or avoid the crowds to discover charming downtown Milton's yummy restaurants, shops, and pubs.

Beautiful Home but some issues

  • 3 of 5

This is the most beautiful and well cared for home I have ever rented. from VRBO. Comfy beds, extremely well-equipped kitchen, wonderful screened-in porch, great decks, amazing shower and decorate beautifully. That being said I rented this property because it is listed as ocean view which it is not. Also, water view but there is just a bit of water in the beautiful marsh behind the home. We consider ourselves as ideal tenants the youngest being 64 and the oldest in her eighties. I am a landlord myself.

An elevator is listed but the exchange with the owner for the use of the elevator was not gracious on her part. She informed me that she had just spent $900.00 repairing the elevator and had to travel from her home to have this work done at great inconvenance. That is not my concern as the tenant. Also, that arrangements had to be made well in advance to use the elevator which is not specified in the listing. I thought I had done that by emailing almost two weeks before my arrival. She knew that one of our party was 80+ so in her reply to me she said it was really for people in there 90's not to make it easier "to carry booze up the stairs." She finally said to call when we arrived and we would be walked through the procedure for the elevator. I did not call. The next day her husband called and when I spoke to him he was very gracious but we declined to use the elevator. That of course was my choice. At that point I felt it would be better not to make use of it.

Wonderful place especially for a family with children because of the bikes and Kayaks provided. But bottom line is I would not rent this property again.

Great stay with beach across the street!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I spent a wonderful week at Broadkill Beach at Carolyn and Harvey's home. We had 8 adults, a 3 and 1 year old and found the accommodations to be comfortable, with plenty of room for privacy and together time. We spent almost our meals cooking at home, the kitchen was very well equipped! The beach was wonderful, and almost private since we barely saw anyone else!! Rehoboth Beach had awesome outlet malls about 25 minutes away, we also went to the Rehoboth Boardwalk one day - about 45 minutes away for lunch and shopping. The screened in porch and outdoor shower were awesome! The Broadkill beach store had fresh cinnamon buns Tuesday morning - not to be missed!! We did find the house and surrounding area to be very buggy - but you're right on the nature preserve so we weren't entirely shocked!! Overall we had the most wonderful time and are looking forward to next years vacation!!

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 11 - four kids under 6, two adult siblings with spouses, and three grandparents - and we loved our time at Blue Reeds. The house was a great setup for us. We loved coffee on the screened porch every morning; the views over the marsh early in the morning and at sunset were breathtaking. The kids were fascinated by the outdoor shower. And the beach is so close! We loved being able to load things up into the wagon to pop over to the beach any time we wanted. The only thing the house was missing was a hammock!

As some other reviewers have mentioned, there are some aggressive horseflies that hang out between the house and the beach. We found that citronella-based bug spray worked best.

The house and location were great, and the owners were helpful and responsive. Truly a great find.

As close to perfection as you can get.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year at Blue Reeds. Everything about this house is perfect. Carolyn and Harvey have thought of everything and once again we had a wonderful, relaxing week. Can't wait to go back next year!
