Overview

Prime Hook Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Come and relax at our home at Primehook Beach. Watch the dolphins in the open waters of the Delaware Bay from our second and third floors or the snow geese, grackles and gulls from our backyard that adjoins the Primehook National Wildlife Reserve with its acres of water. With three floors there is plenty of room for your family to spread out and relax. The top two floors were built in 2003 and the first floor has been remodeled. Our sunsets over the water are gorgeous.

We are across the street from the beach, a short walk. Enjoy bike rides in our private community or go for long walks along the quiet beach looking for shells and sea glass. You will quickly see why Primehook is such a gem. It reminds us of Nags Head, only much closer or Ocean City, MD how it was 60 years ago.

We have two bedrooms on the first floor. One with a king size bed, the other with a full. They share a bathroom with a tub and shower. There is bedroom with 2 single beds and a bathroom with a shower on the second floor. The third floor has a loft bedroom with a queen size bed and its own half bathroom.This bedroom has a magnificent view of the water. At night you can lay in bed and see the ships with their lights on anchored in the Bay.

In nearby Milton, about 9 miles away, we have a Food Lion, a

Walgreens, a Subway, a Chinese carryout, a Domino's and one of our favorites, the Miltonian Restaurant with Greek/Italian and American cuisine. For more shopping we have Lewes and Rehobeth south on Route 1. There is the Boardwalk in Rehobeth and further south, in Ocean City as well as historic sites, theatres, amusement parks, the incomparable Henlopen State Park on the ocean in Rehobeth and all kinds of experiences awaiting you at the shore.

We look forward to hearing from you to plan your vacation at our house in Primehook Beach. It will be our pleasure to help you have a comfortable and enjoyable stay. Ask us to send you our rental agreement so you can book your rental while there is still time. By the way, no waiting for keys at our house, we have resort lock. Thank you, Ron and Anne.

About Ron and Anne Anthony

Anne and I grew up in Northern Virginia, married and moved to the Baltimore area. She is a Medical Technologist at a local hospital and I am in the investment business. We have two wonderful sons, Mike and Nick. They are both attending Towson University. We have 2 other members of our family and they are Ollie and Teddy, our very special Yorkshire Terriers. Anne teaches Yoga and Zumba while I like to work on old cars for fun. We hope you enjoy our home.

Ron and Anne Anthony purchased this house in 2011

Why Ron and Anne Anthony chose Prime Hook Beach

While we enjoyed family vacations in the Outer Banks for many years we prefer being much closer to home with many of the same benefits here in Primehook Beach. Away from the crowds and close to nature.

What makes this house unique

Water views in the front and waterfront in the rear gives us the best of both worlds. Having three floors especially with the high ceilings in the second floor gives us a wonderful feeling of spaciousness. Five decks allow all kinds of perspectives that enhance the experience. Being in Primehook Beach gives you quiet and peacefulness. You can walk on the beach and, many times, be the only one there. At the same time you are only about 20 miles from Rehobeth Beach and tons of things to do. For us vacations are about relaxing and enjoying the simple things, walking on the beach, looking for shells, surf fishing, bird watching, bike rides, long lunches on the deck. Its all here.

The Best At Prime Hook

  • 5 of 5
First, Ron is hands down, the best property-renter out there. He is very accommodating, he will answer all your questions, and he is an all around great guy.

The Lookout is the finest spot you’ll find anywhere around Prime Hook. The house sits right on the PH Preserve but has excellent views of the Bay thanks to all the decks, including the one on the roof. The house and grounds are kept up really well and there's plenty of room for 8 people. We spent a substantial part of one morning on the second floor back deck next to juniper trees, observing the warblers darting around the branches. The scenery out in the Preserve never stops changing—gulls, terns, egrets, herons, skimmers, and some early Snow Geese this year (couple years back I saw some rare White Pelicans fly in and land in the Preserve). You could spend the whole time just sitting and watching. BUT, we hit the beach too (we hiked all the way up to have a look at the breeches one day). We also hung out on one of the sand bars out in the Bay as well. We had the whole beach to ourselves. You’ll want to take time to hike into the Preserve (short drive to HQ) and we always hit Rehoboth for food, fudge, etc.

If you’re looking for a great get-away spot at the shore that puts you a good distance from any crowds, then look no further, my friend.

Lovely property - lots of horseshoe crabs!

  • 4 of 5
The home is very well laid out with lots of room (note that the 3rd floor bedroom has no door and faces into the stairs that lead from the 2nd floor living area and bedroom) and great balconies. It was a wonderful spot for biking, running and admiring birds, rabbits and enormous horseshoe crabs, which were all over the beach (nearby Lewes Beach may be more attractive for actually going into the ocean). While we had paid to rent the kayaks, unbeknownst to us, they were only for use in the open ocean - where we saw no one else on kayaks during our week there - and not on the calm water behind the house, as that was too shallow. I asked for a refund, since once I arrived I saw that we would not be using them on the rough ocean (and only undoing a lock was required to provide us with access) and had contacted the owner, but was told that others (trained, I expect in strong current, open-water kayaking!) had used the kayaks and that there were no refunds for weather. So - think twice before signing on for that feature. Otherwise, a very nice stay in an attractive, quietly situated property.

Owner's Response: We are pleased that many renters find our beach home to be spacious and comfortable. Prime Hook is a quiet and special place for many of our guests.
There is a video on the web page that shows the layout of each floor.The video shows the loft bedroom is not visible from the stairs or the rooms below.
In 2009, Primehook Beach became an official sanctuary for horseshoe crabs. This is the state marine animal. These harmless animals come ashore to spawn in May and June. We have seen many of them on the waters edge in the early morning. They lay their eggs there which attract many shore birds.
My sister and I kayak every time we come to Prime Hook. (We are 60 and she is not a good swimmer) We advise everyone that rent the kayaks that the best time to kayak is low tide which occurs twice every 24 hours. We provide wheels for each kayak that allows one person to pull the kayaks to the beach. The times we have been kayaking the water has only been 3-4 feet deep as far out as we can go. That is what makes low tide perfect for kayaking. Storms and wind will make the water rough as it would anywhere. For those that have never kayaked it might not be worth the cost. But for those that like to be out on the water it is a wonderful experience.
Many of the residents and visitors find the quiet, secluded beach a wonderful place to swim, fish, kayak, sail, and walk their dogs. This is one of the wonderful attractions Prime Hook Beach.

In town for family wedding

  • 5 of 5
Ron & Anne were wonderful to deal with. The house was clean & comfortable with good views from the decks. The fenced backyard was wonderful for our dog Gracie-she's spoiled rotten rescue puggle we take EVERYWHERE with us. It was great to find "dog" friendly. The place was very spacious on second floor (family room type room)--would accommodate a lot of people. It was quiet and peaceful. Would definitely recommend. Thanks to both for a WONDERFUL stay. This was our 2nd time renting a getaway rental and our first experience in Ohio (different owners) was horrible, so I was worried but there were no issues at all

Awesome house and location!

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful! Honestly, the pictures and description of the house and location do not do it justice. From the moment we drove in on Prime Hook Road (the only road in and out!) and walked through the whole house we were in awe. The house itself is soothingly color coordinated and nicely decorated, clean, with very comfortable furnishings. My favorite room was the windowed back room with table and chairs. We spent hours looking out back at the Nature Preserve bird and sunset watching. Eagles, heron, ducks, sea gulls, and sand pipers were plentiful. Big bonus for us was the fenced in backyard and being able to bring our three mini schnauzers. They had a blast walking on the beach and Shore Drive. They yard was so nice, all three had gone belly up rolling on the cool grass in the morning.

The house is big enough for two adults on the ground floor, and a teenager on the third floor. :) A special mention to the open floor plan on the second floor, which was a big enough space to have a catered wedding reception.

The owners, Ron and Ann, were so helpful and accommodating. We had a special request to be married there, and they were all for it and so we were, in the back yard. We can't thank you enough for helping us have one of the happiest days of our lives. Our families that attended just loved the house and views. We contacted Ron and Ann a couple of times and they always got right back to us.

We spent a few hours in Rehoboth, a couple of visits to Dogfish Head brewery, and hiked in the Prime Hook Nature Reserve. We knew there was more we could be seeing and doing, but the house, view, and daily beach walking kept us happy enough to stay put. Now we are both obsessed with Prime Hook and can't wait to visit again. I highly recommend this beautiful house for a visit.

Plenty of space for relaxation

  • 5 of 5
We had a great family vacation to this wonderfully spacious house. It was great for three adult couples and two dogs to relax and not be on top of each other, but still be able to gather for family meals and together time. All of the outdoor/deck areas were great. No matter what time of day, you could find sun or shade and a breeze coming off of the water. Sunsets were spectacular to watch from the back decks. One of the great features of Primehook beach was the ability to take the dogs to the beach as well, although swimming at the beach was definitely for the brave because of the number of horse shoe crabs. When it was hot enough to go for a swim, it was not difficult to access Cape Henlopen State Park with about a twenty minute drive, and Rehoboth beach isn't much further for shopping/nights out. The house is also perfect for access to outdoor activities. Many mornings we would walk around the neighborhood and see bikers and joggers on the quiet roads with beautiful views. Also the beach was great for morning walks. The owners have an obvious pride in taking care of this home. It was clean and inviting. Also, Ron and Anne were easily accessible to answer any questions. The third floor bedroom is more loft style and over the main living area, so the early to bed couples may prefer the more quiet first level bedrooms. Overall, it was a great stay and we enjoyed our vacation time in this charming home.

Notes:
Our house started out with one story. In 2003 the prior owner added the second and third levels so most of the house is only 9 years old. Our backyard has spectacular views over the Primehook National Wildlife Refuge and its waters. It is a 10,000 acre sanctuary and the sunsets are breathtaking. We also have second and third floor views of the Delaware Bay across the street. We are just across the street from the beach. Just beautiful! 4 beach chairs, 3 bikes
