About the property

3 Bedroom 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 8, Plus Outdoor Shower

This Slaughter Beach Cozy Cottage is looking forward to sharing the beautiful beach with new visitors. The property is located directly across from public beach access so your feet will never get tired of walking to the beach. However, lounging in the cottage or reading a book on the screened in patio is sometimes just as relaxing. The cottage is located on two lots so you will have plenty of space for outdoor fun in addition to your own privacy. There is a spacious outdoor patio area for sunset dinners. Recent renovations include all new floors and ceiling fans in addition to a tankless hot water heater, air conditioning, and brand new washer and dryer. The tankless hot water system allows for endless amounts of hot water for all of the guests!

The cottage is fully furnished and recently renovated. You will find everything you need if you plan on cooking during your stay. There is a gas stove and oven, dishwasher and coffee maker. There is even a grill outside for your convenience.

We offer guests the option to use our linens at no additional fee however outdoor beach towels, beach chairs, and coolers will need to be supplied by the guests.

During your stay you should expect to see horseshoe crabs, numerous birds and wildlife. The bay at Slaughter Beach offers guests a more relaxing time playing in the water. The waves are small and the tide is remarkable. You will find when the tide is high you can sail boats, swim laps, fish right from the beach and kayak for hours. However when the tide is low you will find an open ocean bottom waiting to be discovered. Take a walk in the bay and discover what lies beneath.

Slaughter Beach is located North of Rehobeth Beach and Lewes, Delaware. The Tanger Outlets are close by and offer approx. 130 brand name outlets along the 3 mile stretch of Route 1. Near the Tanger Outlets you will find Midway Speedway Park, an exciting family attraction. It has 5 go-kart tracks for all skill levels in addition to 18 holes of miniature golf.

House is ok

  • 3 of 5

We spent one month in this home. When we arrived the house was clean and well furnished. The furniture that was there was stained and dirty in the front room. The bedrooms are small and the mattresses are not comfortable. The utensils and pots and pans were old and not cleaned well and there was a serious lack of cleaning supplies. The biggest issue as mentioned by another renter were the ants. We never left food out and there were ants everywhere, in the bedroom, bathroom and even on toilet paper roll. The owners know about the ants but failed to inform us until after we rented the home. The lady listing the house is a relative of the owner who lives down the street from this cottage and you had no communication with them. When we left the owners filed a claim about ants in the dishwasher which had been an ongoing issue they are aware of. They also stated my dogs stained their furniture which was stained on arrival. We also paid through the 31st of March and left the the morning because Easter was the next day and they could not get there cleaner there for the new renters on Monday. Krista is a nice person but we were not thrilled with the ant issue and the fact of leaving the morning of our last night especially when my wife was sick and could not travel which resulted in us having to get a hotel.

Owner's Response: We take tremendous pride in our property and am sorry that this renter wasn’t satisfied, however: They attempted to extend their stay past their contract date and we were unable to extend as we had new renters coming in. The ant issue they mentioned was due to cooking grease splattered by them in the kitchen. Plenty of cleaning supplies were left there for them, that they did not use, and they left dog urine spots in several rooms.

A little gem

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 4 adults, 3 children, and a small dog loved this cottage. It was clean, convenient, and had everything we needed for a weekend at the beach (beach chairs, gas grill, washer and dryer, and a well stocked kitchen). With small children, it was so nice to be able to just walk across the street to the beach. The day it rained, we took the kids to Funland in Rehoboth. We also, lucked out and witnessed the community's labor day weekend picnic and regatta on the bay, too.

comfortable, clean cottage far away from it all

  • 4 of 5

This cottage was clean and comfortable and well equipped. If you are looking for a very peaceful get-away, far from the crowds and near nature, then you'll love this place.

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying here. It was perfect for my family of 4. 2 adults and 2 kids under 4. The beach was right across the street. The house had everything you needed. Linens were provided which was nice. It had everything you needed to cook. The backyard was huge and filled with bunnys and deer. It was very very quiet which was so nice. The screened in porch was a plus to eat dinner and breakfast. The lewes beach if you prefer a traditional beach was about a 20 min ride down a country road. Slaughter beach was nice but is a more natural beach but also calm and absolutely no one there to bother you or the kids. This is the perfect place if you just want to get away from everyone and relax. There's no traffic or noise. The sunrises and sunsets were amazing. The house was very large and had an outdoor shower as well. Will definitely look into staying here again next summer with my family.
