THE BEACH BELOW YOUR BALCONY - THE ULTIMATE BEACH GET-AWAY!

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!!!

About The Owner

Step off the deck and step onto the beach! This beachfront property is right on the water. Tranquility is owned by 2 families who love nature, tranquility, walks on the beach, bird watching, and spending time in the Broadkill Beach/Lewes area.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Broadkill Beach

Broadkill offers a beautiful, peaceful, private beach surrounded by a wildlife refuge. Our beach house has the most wonderful views. The house is full of light and is spacious and comfortable. We are close to Lewes which offers fabulous restaurants and shops. Plus we are 5 minutes away from a 18 hole golf course.

What makes this house unique

Right on the water. Peace and quiet, natural beauty, views of the water, stargazing, bird watching, walks on the beach, beautiful sunsets and sunrises. An 8 minute drive through a nature preserve to get you to the house gives you the ultimate escape.

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.

Perfect Beachfront Vacation

  • 5 of 5
There is no need to travel to North Carolina to rent a house on the beach - this house on Broadkill Beach is the perfect place for a relaxing vacation close to home (Baltimore area). The house is spacious enough to allow families (we had 4 adults and 3 children) plenty of room to enjoy time together and the sunrooms off the living room and master bedroom allow for some "quiet alone time" for reading or watching TV in the upstairs den. We enjoyed using the grill and eating on the deck. The kitchen is well equipped - you don't need to bring anything. Views from every room are spectacular. A solar lighted walkway leads right to the uncrowded beach. The bay was warmer than you would find in the ocean and the waves and undertow were a bit more calm. We caught sharks, stingrays, and croakers. Dolphins appeared one morning. The Broadkill store is so quaint - has food, ice cream, novelties, and great home-made donuts. The outlets in Rehobeth are only about 20 minutes away if you are in the mood to shop. Bring your bike! If you prefer to vacation away from the crowds and traffic of nearby ocean resorts, Broadkill is a perfect option for you. The owner, Lori, was very easy to work with and was helpful answering questions. We hope to return to this house soon !

PERFECT WEEK!!

  • 5 of 5
"Thanks mom for booking this place!!!" Those were the first words spoken from our 12 year old's mouth upon our arrival. From Horseshoe Crabs to Sand Sharks to Stingrays to Dolphins, Broadkill beach had it all. What a great week for our family to celebrate a special birthday away from home. The cool nights were perfect for open windows to hear the waves put us to sleep...and we had the best sleep ever!! Morning runs on the beach and on the safe and quiet road in were great, the people were friendly and the donuts at the Broadkill store were fresh and consumed quickly. The house had everything that we needed and the beach was so close that we were spoiled all week. Lori was fabulous to rent from, answering my strange questions and helping me with everything that I needed. Thanks again, we will be back.

Peace and Tranquility

  • 5 of 5
One word: Relaxation. My entire family had the most amazing week at your house. My mother, my two young boys (2 and 5), and even our teenager found something to consume their every waking minute. Despite the icky weather, the kids still found time to chase after the horseshoe crabs, swim in the bay and kayak, whilst the adults read, imbibed and enjoyed the tranquility and peace that comes with being on vacation. The only thing that would have made our stay more enjoyable … bringing along our canine companion. :( Thank you. We look forward to next summer.

Fantastic House and Amazing Beach

  • 5 of 5
Hands down, this was the best beachhouse experience that my family has ever had. The house was even better than advertised and comfortably accommodated the entire group. We've never been that close to the beach and the elevated back deck allowed us to spend some time back at the house while the kids spent morning, day, and into the night playing on the beach. There are multiple different rooms that provide incredible views of the sunrise/sunset and the bay itself. One particular highlight for us was the cleanliness and comfort of the living room and kitchen. Especially juxtaposed against our expectations for a typical "beachhouse" living room, this was a real treat. Extremely comfortable furniture with a very nice big screen HDTV made the evenings just as enjoyable as the days were.

In summary, the house exceeded our expectations and we definitely plan to return.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5
This house truly is heaven on earth. This was our first experience renting a beach house and we couldn't have been more pleased with the house and location. The views from every room are absolutely beautiful. The property was immaculately maintained and the owners were extremely helpful in answering our questions. Our family enjoyed going for long walks on the gorgeous beach every evening. The calm water was perfect for my sons, ages 7 and 9, who played on the beach and in the water until they fell into bed in their cozy room every night. The kitchen is absolutely gorgeous and the views really are to die for! The whole house is filled with natural light and the sounds of peaceful waves.

We enjoyed this house so much that we started talking about going back on the drive home! If you are looking for a quiet place to relax, enjoy time with family, and be awestruck by the beauty of the ocean, this is the place.

Absolutely the best beach house!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have stayed at this house several times in various seasons. It's just as wonderful with snow on the ground and ice in the waves as it is with the summer sun shining down upon it. Although there are wonderful restaurants close by, we usually choose to stay in and cook in the beautiful kitchen or grill outside on the deck. The fireplace is a cosy place to cuddle up during the evenings, and the sun room is fantastic for sipping morning coffee and enjoying the spectacular 180 degree views of the water. The beach is never crowded, and you can walk for hours with the waves lapping at your feet. This is absolutely our favorite "get-away" place to go, and we look forward to many more wonderful vacations there.
