Nature Lovers!: Location is perfect for nature lovers! The house sits between the Beach & 1 of America's largest wildlife refuges. The Prime Hook National Wildlife refuge is over 10,000 acres & is in a key position in the Atlantic flyway hosting hundreds of thousands of migratory birds each year including several rare species & endangered species. Common rare species that birdwatchers come to Slaughter Beach to see are the Red Knot, Ruddy Turnstone, Semi-palmated Sandpiper, Sanderling & Dunlin. Slaughter Beach is also host to the largest Horseshoe migration in the U.S. hosting several hundred thousand of the ancient species for about 1 week each year in mid-May & is a designated Horseshoe crab conservation zone. In fact the horseshoe crab eggs are partially responsible for the mass bird migration as the birds come to feed on the Horseshoe crab eggs.
Pets & Smoking: We've recently renovated our home & taken many steps to reduce or eliminate allergens including removing carpets, cleaning the HVAC system & installing hepa-filtration filters. We've done this both to allow our enjoyment of this home & to allow others w/moderate to severe allergies to do so. As a result, we cannot allow any pets inside the home. We also cannot allow smoking of any kind w/in our home. Any evidence of either will automatically result in forfeit of the entire deposit. The cost of eliminating the result of smoking or pets (i.e. HVAC cleaning, carpet removal, steam cleaning) will also be the responsibility of the renter.
We had a lovely time here at Slaughter Beach. The house is wonderful, very comfortable and well-equipped. We enjoyed the luxury of having multiple living areas to spread out and especially the screened in porch with its seclusion.
Slaughter Beach itself is a great beach, quiet and relaxing, with friendly people. We also went to Rehoboth one day, which is very close. Nice town with lots to do.
We would like to say a huge thank you to the Valeri's for opening their beautiful home to us. We will definitely be returning.

The entire village sits between the water & the Prime Hook Wildlife Refuge & the Milford Neck Wildlife Area.

Tourists are attracted to this area for bird watching as many rare species spend spring & early summer at Slaughter Beach including a number of endangered species.
