Beautiful bayfront cottage

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved our vacation week here this summer. The cottage has a lot more space than I thought, and easily accommodated guests staying over. Our 1-year old slept in a pack-and-play, which we were able to fit easily into the master bedroom. The upstairs area is huge with different sleep areas and play spaces for kids. The layout in general is great. Wifi works great and we plugged in our iPods and had music going the whole time. Didn't turn the TV on once (which is pretty amazing for us) but it looked decent.

It's not an upscale house, but comfortable. We informed the owner upon arrival the bottom shelf and drawer of the fridge was broken, rendering about a third of the fridge unusable. He replied the next day saying there was nothing he could do about it. Also no wine glasses, which is strange. The other issue I hope can be addressed is the outdoor shower has no privacy. One of the best features of a beach house is showering off before coming into the house. A simple fence or privacy wall to block the view of the big houses right across the street would make it a proper shower, and add to the house's charm.

We had to have the septic tank emptied during our stay. This was a breeze and the owner's instructions were clear and they came right out to empty it.

Prime Hook Refuge is certainly worth exploring and the doughnuts on the weekends at the corner store are a must. Broadkill Beach is a beautiful and quiet oasis.

We will be back!

Owner's Response: So glad that you enjoyed your stay. To clarify your comment regarding the refrigerator, I could not repair the shelf during your stay because parts needs to be ordered. It was repaired right after your stay. Thanks for letting me know about the wine glasses now. Had you informed me when you arrived I would have been happy to reimburse you if you wanted to purchase some. Unfortunately tenants sometimes break glassware during the year without notifying me or replacing them. I put new ones in at the end of the season. Thanks for the feedback on enclosing the outdoor shower. We've never had anyone else comment on it but I'll look into modifying it this year. Hope to see you again this season.

Delightful property at waters edge. Seriously!

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased with this charming beach cottage - the water view is, to, say the least, outstanding. At high tide the waves flow up under the deck which is a unique visual experience! We woke up,early each morning to watch the sunrise. Spectacular. The house itself is nothing fancy (which we like!) but is well stocked and very cozy. We actually used the baseboard heater since the nights were chilly. Love the quiet, uncrowded beach - perfect fall getaway - close to Prime Hook Refuge which is certainly a bonus. Owner was very quick to respond to a few questions we had regarding the house. Beach erosion is a bit of a concern - and beware of soft sand on road shoulder. Our car got stuck twice. Both times kind folks helped us shovel out. Would we return? Definitely. We prefer the quiet of fall at the beach. This is just what we were looking for - thanks!

Great beach house

  • 5 of 5

Great property for the price! You can't get closer to the beach. The deck was great for fishing or just watching the tide come in.

Long adult weekend

This was a wonderful vacation. The house is very comfortable and such a great deck to sit on. This being our last full day we all dread going home. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your home.

Great location on quiet beach!

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic family vacation, staying at this house. As the other reviewers stated, it is ideally situated if you want to be away from the tourist areas of Lewes and Rehoboth Beaches, but within a 15-20 minute drive. To get to the house, there is a 3.5 mile drive through the beautiful Prime Hook Nature Refuge, which is worth a visit. Broadkill Beach is mostly private, and extends for miles until it reaches the Beach Plum Nature Refuge, which is also beautiful and has soft white sand. We slept to the sounds of ocean waves every night. It is a great area to run, bike, swim, hike, relax. The house has reliable Wifi, a computer to use, large TV, washer/dryer and storage space under the house for bikes and boats in a safe, quiet side street. There are plenty of beds and pull out sofas, all in good condition. The value was worth it. If I were to give any critical comment, it is that the kitchen cabinets and bathroom are in need of renovation or painting. Other than that, we really enjoyed it.

Incredible Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I would give it 6 stars if I could. Surely the best vacation I have ever been on in my life! The beach was beautiful, the house fantastic - it had everything we needed. Our kids had a ball - we rented paddle boards down the street which were delivered and brought floats for swimming. Water was warm and we too saw the dolphins one early morning!

Located right on the white sands of the Delaware Bay with the 9000 acre Prime Hook Wildlife Refuge to the west, this is a place that really lets you relax. Bike, walk or jog the entire 2 1/2 mile length of Broadkill Beach with ease. Bring your binoculars and camera and do some serious bird watching at Prime Hook. The championship Rookery golf course is only 5 miles away and they also have a very nice restaurant. Bring your telescope for some stunning views of the stars at night like you remember from your youth. Once you've recharged your batteries, you can drive 10 miles to enjoy the hustle and bustle of Rehoboth or Lewes. Enjoy great restaurants, outlet mall shopping and activities for the whole family. Stroll through historic downtown Lewes or take a ferry to Cape May, NJ, with its picturesque Victorian waterfront. The Rehoboth boardwalk and Atlantic beaches are 17 miles away when you just have to have some saltwater taffy or boardwalk fries.
