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.

A very cute place to stay

  • 4 of 5

The house has a 50's beach house vibe to it and is very cozy and cute. Everything was provided for us and was overall comfortable. My only gripes with the place are that each room is not ventilated (no central ac) so everyone had to sleep with the door open. There was also a lot of ants in the kitchen; not sure where they were coming from. Overall the house was mostly pleasant to stay in and would stay again; given the above issues are resolved.

Charming little cottage by the bay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at the house. It is very peaceful. The kids loved exploring the bay's low tides. Great place for a relaxing family getaway. Not too far from the big beaches either. Can't wait to come back and explore longer.

Perfect getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a great week at this adorable cottage! The pictures don't do it justice!It was clean, beachy, comfortable, and had everything we needed for a relaxing getaway. The owners were great to work with, and were available if you needed them. We loved the screened in porch for meals and just relaxing. The beach entrance right across the street was so convenient, and it was so quiet most of the time there was hardly anyone around. Being able to bring our dog with us was a plus. Our family came home with some great memories! We will definitely stay here again! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Lovely Delaware Bay shore cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our family was looking for a last-minute getaway at the Delaware shore, and we were lucky to find this lovely cottage that was available by the day. It was the perfect size for our family of two teens, two adults and a dog. The house is furnished and equipped as though the owners planned to use it themselves. All the kitchen equipment was like what I have at home, making it easy to put together meals with the provisions we brought in. Our kids were happy to have a large screen tv and wifi! The cottage is tucked away on the Delaware Bay right near a marsh preserve about 30 minutes north of Rehoboth, and really feels like you are getting away. The beach is literally across a tiny road. It is a really empty beach and is shallow for a long way out but gets a bit muddy. There were lovely pebbles and some whelk and other shells and lots of horseshoe crabs. We saw people fishing and kayaking off the beach. The DuPont Nature Center really helped us understand the area, with well informed and friendly staff. It is closed on Mondays. We learned so much about horseshoe crabs! There is no commercial area in walking distance, but the town of Milford is not far by car. We had a great taco meal there at Bibi's Taqueria (don't be dissuaded by the strip mall).we also spent an afternoon wandering around the very cute and historical town of Lewes. Overall it was a great place for a break. Just be aware that to get to the Rehoboth Boardwalk area is a bit of a journey.

Beautiful and welcoming cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay so much at this cottage. It was absolutely spotless and so home like. The owners go out of their way to make your vacation a memorable one. They had books, tv, dvd player and even bikes. To get to the beach all you needed to do was walk across the street. We will definitely come back again to this cottage.

Pleasantly surprised!

  • 5 of 5

We are from NJ and always rent on LBI or stay at our home in Surfside Beach, SC. We had never heard of Slaughter Beach but took a chance on it for a quick getaway. The owner, Sarah, is absolutely awesome. She was responsive to every email or call on a timely basis and is even mailing back a bathing suit that was forgotten in the outside shower after our stay. We fell in love with the home the minute we walked in. It was way more than we expected...quite large, actually. The location was so perfect and close to the beach, the side yard with trees was a great place to hang out after the beach and the screen in porch was the final stop each night before heading to bed. We would definitely come back!
