ON THE WATER! BAYFRONT-NO TRAFFIC! BEAUTIFUL QUIET BROADKILL!

Broadkill Beach House Rental Photos and Description

3 BR, 1 1/2 BA+OD Shower, Sleeps 6 (8 w/sleeper sofa), Porch on beach!

Beautiful home directly on the beach. Florida porch with wrap-around deck. Grill steaks while taking in beautiful view and ocean breezes. Broadkill Beach is a quiet old fishing village that is entirely residential (all single family homes). and one quaint country store. The town is NW of Rehoboth/Lewes, close enough to hop in the car to hit the outlets, restaurants or the boardwalk, but far enough that you enjoy peace and quiet. Broadkill's sandy beach is great for sandcastles, kayaking, beach combing and the huge wildlife refuge (Primehook) is another attraction. A few miles inland is historic Milton, home of a huge collection of Victorian-era architecture, bookshop, antique shops, ice cream parlor, as well as being the home of a couple of Delaware's 19th century governors - their large homes are still there. More pictures on our website (contact us for link). Credit Cards via Paypal accepted.

Pets on a case by case basis only. Wireless Internet.

Suitability:
  • pets considered
  • children welcome
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • non smoking only

My family bought this beach house for a vacation getaway from busy Norfolk, VA and later Washington, D.C. We make it available to rent when we aren't using it to help cover the mortgage. I'm a career naval officer and hope to retire there someday! It is a labor of love to keep it in perfect condition and we make continual upgrades

Brad Mai purchased this house in 1998

Broadkill Beach is truly a wonderful place and this house is the best of Broadkill. Directly on the water. Broadkill is sandwiched between the Primehook Wildlife Preserve and the Delaware Bay. This keeps is small and beautiful. The Broadkill General Store is the only commercial establishment! Bring bikes and it is a simple, short bike ride to get ice cream, lunch. fishing supplies or the basic necessities.

Waterfront, quite, your own house, new Florida Porch.

One of my favorite rentals so far

  • 5 of 5
This house has great energy, is cozy and is even better than described!
Perfect retreat if you are looking for some quality quiet time, walks on the beach, Waterfront BBQ or star gazing at night.
The owner is great to deal with!
Perfect for families or a romantic getaway or for anybody else for that matter.

Stop looking, this is a great house and it is fairly priced.

Thank you for a great stay!

Perfect Solitude

  • 5 of 5
The house was perfect. Just the right size, everything we needed, incredible quiet location, beautiful dunes immediately outside, incredible view from the serene Florida room (as well as the deck) of the bay just beyond the dunes. Our doggie was in heaven, and so were we. We had the beach to ourselves, just a few other walkers but that was it. Enjoyed a fabulous campfire on the beach both nights too. Just a great weekend overall. Owner was very easy to work with and we can't wait to go back!!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
Our family felt immediately at home as soon as we walked through the door. The house was quiet, cozy, clean and came with a fully equipped kitchen. There was enough room for a family of four to spread out and read, watch the sunset, listen to the birds, etc. We loved it so much we are hoping to make this property and Broadkill Beach our vacation spot from now on. Loved the bulletin board with recommendations from previous renters. Don't miss the hot donuts from the Broadkill General Store -- best to call ahead as they sell out very quickly. The store also helped us arrange a kayak for day use. Prices were super reasonable and even included pick-up and delivery. Also loved sitting on the beach and watching dolphins swim nearby. And, this is a dog-lovers paradise. The owner was a delight to work with and the entire rental process went smoothly. The only downside is the week flew by and we are impatient to visit again.

Beautiful home and beach! House had it all!!!

  • 5 of 5
My family absolutely loved our vacation and have already asked for a week next year. The house was very clean and had everything we could ask for. The owner sent us additional pictures and videos that allowed us to know exactly what we were renting which helped ease our minds a lot. We loved the porch and my husband loved the BBQ on the wrap around deck! To get to the beach you had to walk through sand dunes so we found a wagon was very helpful but you certainly don't need one for sure. We loved the local general store and also spent one day and evening in Lewes. Loved the coffee shop! I really can't think of anything that could have made our stay better and completely recommend this home for young families or just a couple wanting a quiet stay at the beach!!!

Enjoyable beach weekend

  • 5 of 5
We spent a very happy family weekend in late March in this lovely and well kept cottage on the Delaware shore. We loved waking up and enjoying the sea views, n and taking windy walks along the beach with our dog. Also enjoyed great Spring bird watching in Prime Hook. Would recommend this cottage highly and hope to return again.

COMPLETELY PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
Wow! After almost a decade of never going on vacation...My husband, myself & our 2 dogs spent a week down at Brad's Broadkill Beach housewent and had the most perfect time imaginable! It was the week before Memorial day and the beach was so secluded and pristine it was just unbelievable! The area is so very laid back for down the beach it's like how it used to be and fondly remember when I was a youngster, before all the commercialism took over. Well, Broadkill has been untouched by all of that thankfully!

The house is well-equipped with anything you could think of needing. I honestly can't think of one item I was in need of down there! The grocery store, bank, & liquor store are a short 6-7 miles down one road so it was nothing to jump in the car to get anything we wanted to eat or drink and Lewes is 7 miles in the opposite direction to go out for drinks or dinner. Although I think we were there 5 days before we decided to go out to dinner! We just had no problem staying at the house & cooking on the BBQ. My husband was very into the surf-fishing down there and caught a huge rockfish so that was really good on grill that nite!

I also have to extend my appreciation to Brad allowing us to include our 2 dogs. We do not have children, so these dogs ARE our children, and I honestly wouldn't even want to go on vaca without them. They had never been to the beach before and they just absolutely were beach dogs in no time at all! My youngest even figured out how to pick up a horseshoe crab and place it back in the water! HA! Really, a bunch had washed up with high tide & we were turning them back over and into the bay and once Blaze was sure they weren't gonna sting her or bite her she was right there doing her part! I'm very thankful we were allowed to bring them. They surely had their "own spots" on the wrap-around deck that caught some fabulous beach breezes!


I can't think of a better place to spend some time. I honestly cried like a little spoiled brat when we were packing up to leave because I just WANTED TO STAY and LIVE there! Brad & his wife have done a great job on this gem of a beach house.

Thank you so very much for a perfect stay. We most definately will be back!
