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.

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!

Awesome vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific week in Broadkill Beach!! This beach house is very well equipped and big enough for everyone to spread out and also to be together. The screened in porch was lovely. We were able to grill out and do all our meals at the house in the nice kitchen. A major highlight to the trip were the donuts at the Broadkill Beach store on Saturday and Sunday and the homemade cinnamon rolls on Tuesday. We preordered them on Monday and rode the bikes down to pick them up on Tuesday morning because they sell out fast. They were TERRIFIC!! Our dog loved the house and the beach. We spent a few days on the beach by the house and a other days we drove 15 minutes to Cape Henlopen State Park to be at the ocean which was very nice too. The park has a nice bathhouse and snack shack and lifeguards on duty. We also loved the town of Lewes. We had two lunches there and some terrific ice cream at Kings Ice Cream and there is a terrific kids toy store on the Main Street in Lewes. We were able to get two great games to play with the whole family for a reasonable price. My 17 year old son was also able to join a gym for the week in the town of Nassau, DE called Anytime Fitness right before Lewes which was about a 10 minute drive from the beach house. He is an athlete and enjoys working out regularly. We also loved the upper deck off of one of the bedrooms at the beach house. They have equipped this house with everything you would want or need. We also loved the kayaks. We took them out to the beach with the nice pullable thing they had and had a great time with them in the bay. The owners were great to deal with. There are a few horseflies here and there depending on the time of day and if there is a breeze or not, but a little bug spray took care of them for us. We will miss waking up and drinking our coffee looking out at all the birds at Blue Reeds in Broadkill Beach. This place is a gem!

Gorgeous and ready for guests!

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely beautiful! The view from the back was something we took in very frequently! Simply gorgeous. Everything was as described in the online VRBO advertisement. The "toys," bikes, chairs, etc. were a wonderful perk. Several of us used the bikes and we all used the beach chairs. The kitchen is well-stocked, but it took a while to learn where everything was stored. Everything we needed in the way of accessories, spices and cookware was available. The only problem we had was that the elevator was not in working order during our stay. There were two older folks with us (one with a severe visual impairment and the other with mobility issues) who had difficulty with the stairs. The elevator would have relieved a lot of discomfort and worry for us all since you must climb approximately 20 stairs to get into the home.

We would definitely rent this place again. It was ideal for our family reunion and the location was perfect for us.

Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation in this beautiful home - 7 adults and 1 child. Lots of space for everyone to spread out - the "great room" alone is worth renting this house! And a beautiful place to watch sunsets. So great that it accommodates dogs easily, with crates provided and a fenced in yard. Gorgeous and relaxing views of the wildlife refuge and the lovely, uncrowded beach just across the road. Beautifully decorated house. Love the Broadkill beach community and would love to come back.

One note: the HomeAway listing said linens are provided, but in fact they are not.

Thanks to the owners for sharing your home with us!
