Broadkill Beach House Rental Photos and Description
Beachfront House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
Right on the water this beautiful three bedroom home, with renovated kitchen, has natural light and a view of the water in every room. Enjoy large upper and lower decks and the luxury of a nearly private beach. Secluded yet twenty minutes from everything you could want to make your vacation perfect.
Romantic getaway or family fun!
This lovely home sits on a beautiful beach that feels all but private. Empty lots border each side of the house while across the street is the Prime Hook Nature Reserve with eagles, osprey and other birds of interest. You can enjoy the sun rising over the Atlantic with coffee in the morning-you’ll probably see Dolphins swimming close to shore-and cocktails in the evening as you marvel at exquisite sunsets over Prime Hook. It’s perfect for couples wanting a romantic getaway or three generational families having a yearly reunion. The beach is ideal for young children because the Bay waves are gentle and calm.
The kicker is that while you have all the privacy you want, within 10-20 minutes you can:
• Shop at designer outlets
• Play 18 holes at a challenging local golf course
• Body surf on the waves at Cape Henlopen
• Dine at great restaurants in Lewes and Rehobeth
• Take the Lewes Ferry to Cape May, New Jersey
• Enjoy the nightlife and boardwalk of Rehoboth
A quaint little neighborhood store sells sandwiches, basic supplies and fishing equipment for surf fishing right out your door and on weekends they make fabulous home-made donuts. Fifteen minutes away is the little gem of a town called Lewes (the natives pronounce it Lewis) with several great restaurants both formal and informal, antiques, art and “new-agey” chachkas.
Why not rent the place for a month while you finish your novel? We have Wi-Fi for surfing the web and cable TV and DVD players. Bring your kayak and put in on the bay. Walk the beach for miles in both directions and explore a mysterious shipwreck-you can see it with your binoculars from the deck-that baffles even the local historians as to its identity.
The house itself has three bedrooms upstairs and a king size sleep sofa in the living room on the main level. Master bedroom is spacious with vaulted ceilings, separate bath, king bed and wonderful reading porch with great views and windows that open for hearing the waves. The other two bedrooms each have queens and single beds with trundles so that you could sleep 3 or four in each. When you turn in at night crack the windows just enough to hear the waves as you fall asleep and again when you awaken the next morning.
Come once and you’ll want to return year after year. This place has it all!!!

Guestbook comments from the manager
I wanted to let you know what a great time we all had.
The first week with our daughters and their families was a blast. The grand kids had never been to any beach before and they fell in love with everything. We took a day trip to Rehoboth beach one day to check out the boardwalk and when they saw how crowded the beach was they said "I like our beach better". So it seems like we have some beach lovers coming up in the family! Our second week was just as nice with just the four of us, not as hectic as it was with the kids, just relaxing. We have certainly made many wonderful memories with our family. We are definitely talking about coming back next year. I will be in touch with you to schedule something for 2014. Once again thank you for allowing us to spend some time at your lovely beach house.
