About Joe Adams

Joe and Liz built this house as a place for the family to gather. With our kids growing up and in the process of building their own lives, this house is a place everyone wants to visit; not only our immediate family but also aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and friends. This is a special place to us. It is where we are already building memories, creating new bonds, and growing closer as a family.

Joe Adams purchased this house in 2015

Why Joe Adams chose Broadkill Beach

So easy to get to, yet a feeling so different from our day to day lives. When we are here we are in our own private world, enjoying God's creation and appreciating life in a whole new way. This property is gorgeous and we feel fortunate to be able to call it ours. We still cannot believe this is ours... it is so new to us, too. But we also want to be able to share this a few weeks a year when we are not planning to use it.

What makes this house unique

Walkway directly between house and beach. Great outdoor shower and convenient hose. Drop beach toys and shoes outside, and proceed to 1st floor entry with foyer to drop bags and misc items. 1st floor has laundry room, 4 BR, 2 full baths and a deck. Master BR and BR2 have doors directly to first floor deck for a quiet time relaxing/reading privately. The 2nd floor is the huge gathering space with big windows, fantastic views, and sliding doors out to deck. Inside on this main level is the sitting area with TV/couches/chairs, dining area, custom kitchen, pantry, plus a bedroom (twin + full sleep sofa) and a full bath. This level is very comfortable for everyone to gather, eat and relax. The 3rd level is called the "tower room" and is great when a few folks (kids?) wants space of their own. This 3rd deck is open to the sun and has spectacular 360o views of the beach, Lewes, Cape Henlopen, lighthouses, Prime Hook nature preserve and S. Bayshore drive. This is a good space for playing board games, doing puzzles or reading. There is a small front porch for great views of the sunsets and a half bath. All this and a few more pleasant surprises await!

Peaceful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

When my son and daughter-in-law wanted a Thanksgiving get away, we stumbled across this exceptional property. Joe is the best home owner I have had the pleasure to deal with after numerous rentals through the past 15 years. Words can not express what this home provides in sights, comfort, sunrise to sunsets, nature, ocean views and sounds throughout the day and evening. The furnishings are top notch including comfortable beds and pillows, full kitchen necessities, beautiful open space for family gatherings, game console and bunch of games and books, new appliances, deck furnishings for coffee to late night snacks, a dog friendly beach and beach bon fires!

The nature preserve is a short walk and has sights of great birds. During our stay, we actually had a Bald Eagle visit three mornings in a row. Such a majestic bird we had to send a photo to the owner, Joe.

This is a one of a kind home on the ocean. If you are considering Broadkill Beach or the Delaware shore for peaceful resting week... This is your place. If you are considering a home on the beach and a short ride to eateries or activities... This is your place! If you are considering an exceptional home with a great owner... This is your place!!

We had many memories throughout our week... I know you will too!

Beautiful home, fantastic owner!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a fall weekend getaway, what a beautiful home with amazing views on all levels (water/beach views to East, national wildlife refuge views to West). Joe was wonderful to work with, answered all questions and was a great host. Private walkway directly to the beach. We had a very nice stay, and would highly recommend!

AMAZING home and home owners.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a long weekend late October. Joe could not have been more accommodating. His family home is brand spanking new and is just perfect. The views, the beach, the comfy beach vibe soothed our souls. We could not have asked for better weather nor a better home to enjoy the area. Cupboards are filled with plenty of plates, cups and glasses as well as pots and pans but if you are like me you find lovely restaurants to enjoy rather than cook. I imagine the home would be a perfect place for summer vacation. 5 plus stars all around!

Step right out the door and over the walkway to the beach. Enjoy unbelievable views from the decks and every window. This place is absolutely incredible, and a rare find. Spend the day at your beach - on the sand or on the decks. Enjoy the peaceful (small) waves and long walks on the beach or stay busy at the nearby golf course, outlet malls, restaurants, boardwalk, mini golf and everything else that the shore has to offer. Enjoy activities right at your doorstep, including kayaking, Stand-up-paddleboarding, swimming, fishing (saltwater and fresh), crabbing, and more. Or relax in the big house and enjoy gorgeous sunsets. This place has everything your family could want from a beach vacation. You stay busy for a week at the beach and never need to put your shoes on.
