Welcome to your private, secluded oasis. Our house sits on 4 lots and is the last house on the street. This affords you a quiet retreat bordering the Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge. The only traffic you will have will be in the air in the form of beautiful flocks of egrets, ospreys searching for a meal, and migrating birds.
The beautiful, uncrowded Delaware Bay beach is just a short walk away down an uncrowded street that is more like a gravel lane - no traffic. The gentle waves are wonderful for children and kayaking and for stand-up paddle boarding. Enjoy views of the Cape May-Lewes Ferry, quiet walks searching for shells and seaglass or try your hand at surf fishing.
After the beach, enjoy our large grass yard for games or a catch or spend time in our beachy yard with native grasses and a children's playset. Enjoy relaxing in our screened in outside shower while you gaze at the wildlife refuge. Whatever you decide, the quiet and calmness will soothe and relax you.
