BAY FRONT COTTAGE, SLAUGHTER BEACH, DELAWARE

Slaughter Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

- 2 BR, 2 BA, Sleeps 6.

This charming bay front cottage is an excellent escape from everyday life! It sits on the Delaware Bay in Slaughter Beach, DE, a sleepy little town with nature abound! The newly remodeled cottage features a great view of the Bay, complete with a sitting porch and screen gazebo. The home has all the conveniences of modern day including washer, dryer, dishwasher, cable TV, microwave, DSL internet, electric oven/stove. Outside it has a picnic table, gas grill and a large deck for sunset viewing.

Nature Abound!!: When you're in Delaware looking for knots and turnstones and peeps in the second half of May, head for Slaughter Beach within a few hours of high tide. Horseshoe crabs should be spawning, and where there are eggs, there are birds. The marsh just west of Slaughter Beach has been preserved. Diamondback terrapin babes that hatch on the beach struggle past the houses and across the road to get to the marsh.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • pets not allowed
  • children welcome
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • non smoking only

Kept our security deposit for basic cleaning

The cottage is well maintained, and the hammock was very relaxing. There were lots of bugs around, but that's normal in a bay beach. What is not normal is that because of routine cleaning, the owner kept our deposit.

We are very clean renters who rent on the Delaware seashore every year. This year, as always, my wife spent 2 hours cleaning the cottage before we left. We didn't vacuum again (we had done so two days earlier), but did clean counters, do all the dishes (by hand, because the dishwasher doesn't work), wash and fold all sheets, etc. Two days later, when we wrote to enquire about our deposit, we were told that it would not be refunded. Here was the complete list of reasons provided:

"I had to sweep and vacumn all floors. Clean up all dog hair. Clean both bathrooms. Clean the refrigerater, stove,
and counter tops. Empty the bathroom trash cans. Put all the furniture back the way it was on the front porch.
They had a mattress out there. (They did put it back.) Wipe everything down."

These are basic cleaning services that are provided after every rental we have ever had. So, fair warning: THEY KEPT OUR DEPOSIT AND MAY KEEP YOURS.

I found this home online and was pleasantly surprised to find a wonderful house with great owners. They were accomodating and kept the house in pristine condition. The beach is clean,the area is historical with many sights to see nearby. If you want to stay at a great vacation house this is it.

A good place to relax

If you want a family vacation without any disturbance and if you want to relax, this is a place I can highly recommend. The furniture, design, etc is so welcoming. Overall, the house is so warm and cozy. It was a home away our home from the first second we entered the house. When we talked to the owner on the phone, she told me that the pictures did not reflect the quality of the house. Well, she was absolutely right! We were five adults and one toddler, and it was perfect for six people.

There are 3 flat screen good size TVs and a DVD player. You will have a good internet access. If you have a little kid, there are lots of kid books (and some -age appropriate- kid DVDs, too) and my 3 years old daughter had so much fun with them because she is a fan of books. The hammock and the grill are in perfect shape. And of course the gazebo! It is perfect for family dinners, to read a book, have evening drinks, even to study, and you will not be bothered by flies, insects, etc. To sum up, you need everything to entertain your family.

The beach is a natural beach. If you are expecting as fancy beach with access to stores, activities etc, this is not your place. But, there are beaches like that pretty close. One of the most important thing for me was that I wanted to rent a house near the ocean and I did not want anything between the house and the ocean (road, other houses, etc) except sand:) You can have long walks on the beach, admire the ocean day and night, and smell the salt in the air all day:) The house was perfect in that sense. However, swimming, hanging on the beach for long hours, shopping etc, were not the things that I was looking for. If you are looking for these kinds of stuff, you need to drive to other beaches. There is a little store for food and house stuff pretty close, but I never checked it. There are stores (department store, liquor store, stores for clothing, etc) in 6-10 miles.

Overall, we, as a family, enjoyed the house. I recommend the house for those families (with or without kids) who are looking for a calm, quiet, relaxing time.
