Very nice, clean, comfortable condo
This condo is in a building just off of Route 1, and only about 10 minutes drive to Lewes Beach, 15 minutes to the beach at Cape Henlopen, and for those who have to shop, just minutes from a plethora of outlets as well. The parking is plentiful, and the condo entrance is only about 8 steps from the elevator (so easy to unpack after a long drive!).
You enter into a vestibule complete with a boot tray for sandy or wet shoes, a coat closet, and a thoughtfully provided umbrella for rainy trips to the car.
A few steps later is a bedroom on either side of the hallway, then a nice-sized bathroom on the left (which also has a connecting door to the bedroom on the left). To the right, the kitchen opens up with a peninsula dividing it from the open dining/ living area. The master bedroom, with a large adjoining bath, is on the left (we've previously rented places with bathrooms the size of the attached walk-in closet!).
At the far end of the living room a tile-floored sunporch (accessed by a sliding glass/ screen door), with lots of windows, looks over a small pond. Both the sunporch and the master bedroom open up to a small balcony.
All rooms are furnished comfortably and were very clean. I would have loved to sit on the sunporch and read, but it was just too chilly when we were there. :)
The kitchen (there is a small and efficient laundry room across the hall) is bright and spacious and well-equipped. I would suggest to the Owner the addition of a set of mixing bowls for pancake batter, scrambling eggs, etc. but I found some serving bowls that did the job well enough. And I loved the small labels on cabinets describing their contents-- it not only appealed to the OCD in me, but made it very easy to maneuver around an unfamiliar kitchen while making meals.
Television had lots of cable channels for my husband, and I enjoyed the fast wifi connection on my laptop. There is also a good selection of games and books.
Our favorite restaurants in the area are Agave, Striper Bites, and an Italian trattoria across the street from Striper Bites, all located in Lewes. Go Brit, located near this condo, has good fish & chips. Cape Henlopen State Park has paved bike trails (and bike rentals, I think that they are free although we bring our own), a very interesting nature center, and awesome beaches and views of both the ocean and bay.
This was a perfect condo AND area for us to stay in, and we would highly recommend it to anyone.
