Fabulous, family friendly beach house

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have now stayed here twice and just booked our stay for next summer. Clearly we love it as we are going back for a third time! The house is exactly as pictured, with beautiful decks overlooking the bay, spacious rooms, and a large kitchen. It is extremely well laid out, is very clean, and has everything you need for a great vacation. The kitchen is well stocked with spices, baking containers, and cooking utensils - very important to our family as we all cook together during our week at the beach. It is a short walk over the dunes to the fishing beach - many people get a beach permit and drive their car, which my brother did. The location is also nice, north of Ocean City, MD and south of the Bethanie/Rehobeth area. Dealing with the owner is easy and pleasant. We would highly recommend this place to those traveling to the beach. Additionally, there is an elevator which was very important to our grandparents who love sitting on the deck watching the sunset.

In a word - WOW!

  • 5 of 5

Our clan has been visiting the Delaware shore for the last 11 years. With my mother in a wheelchair and a pack of adventure-seeking teens it hasn't been easy finding places that can accommodate our diverse family. This beautiful home was beyond our expectations!

First, the location was excellent – right across from a very private beach area. It’s just a short walk through the dunes (beats the trek across the public parking lot from our last stay) until you hit the actual water. The rear of the house overlooks the bay and the sunsets from the upper deck were a gorgeous setting for cocktail hour. There is a large dining table and BBQ grill on the upper deck along with lounge chairs – we felt like we were on a pampered cruise!

The houses we have stayed in before were obviously primarily rental houses. This is definitely a well-kept home. The furniture and amenities were upscale and well thought-out.

Our teens divided their time between the X-Box in the living area on the middle-floor, riding their bikes and paddling around the bay with the kayak. The cooks in our group pretty much refused to leave the kitchen area – lots of high-end equipment to churn out pretty impressive dinners. Mom was able to pop around everywhere with the elevator (great for getting the groceries to the kitchen BTW). I loved the floor plan with the master suite on the top floor (yikes! It’s huge!) and the rest of the bedrooms on the middle level.

It appears we have finally found a destination we will enjoy doing repeat visits to. Thank you for your beautiful home and helpful assistance during the booking and check-in process!

Excellent location and gorgeous house

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at this house. It’s beautifully built and well kept. The owner met us upon arrival to give us a tour and explain various amenities. We had some trouble figuring out the lights, as it seemed as though every switch was different, but we got them eventually. The family cooks loved the kitchen and grill. The elevator was great for luggage and groceries. Unfortunately we didn’t get around to using the hot tub, workout room, bikes, or kayak, but it was nice to know we had them. Stunning views of the bay, especially sunsets, from the living room and decks, and from the breakfast nook we could see sunrise over the ocean. Although we had a full house, it was easy to find a quiet spot anywhere. We always had a strong breeze on the decks, warm during the day (highs in the mid-80s) but not uncomfortable, and pleasant at night. We occasionally heard some loud conversation from the next-door apartment complex’s pool, but never enough to be disturbing.

We had four kids (9 mos to 6 yrs) with us, so we did some minor babyproofing. We put tape over outlets, moved breakables to higher places, kept doors closed, and watched the stairs vigilantly. The house has board games and puzzles, but for kids under 10, I recommend bringing your own toys. We used the DVD player daily (with our DVDs), as well as the Xbox, which was a little flaky but still fun.

The walk to the beach is about a 1/4-mile, and you cross four lanes of Coastal Hwy (two in each direction, speed limit 50 mph) to get there. There’s a wide median in the center, so you can cross two lanes at a time. We never had to wait more than a few minutes for a safe break in traffic. Even with small children, it was fine. After that, you cross a slightly marshy spot with wooden planks to walk on, then go through a wooded area and onto the dunes. The path is well defined. It did get hot walking on the dunes because the ocean breeze didn’t reach. At the edge of the beach, there’s a posted sign that says to stay off the dunes. Once on our way back, a state park official on an ATV stopped us and said not to go onto the dunes, but when we said we were staying in the house across the street, he let us go. We didn’t have any problems with bugs.

The beach itself was exactly what we’d hoped. We were often the only ones on that stretch of the beach, and when there were other people, they were at least shouting distance away. All in all, we had a fantastic stay, and we hope to return.

Really, really really nice!

  • 5 of 5

Our families have typically spent vacations on the shore but due to Sandy’s visit we thought we’d try the Delaware Beaches.

This home is WOW! Here’s the breakdown –

Last vacation - Older home – typical rental,homes close together (you can wave to neighbor in their bathroom), have to cross a busy street, crowded beaches, sales tax!, average restaurants.

This home/vacation - Newer, very well maintained, beautiful furnishings, 4 acres of wetlands habitat!!, street to cross has a wide center divider - no sprinting for your life, beach across from the home is wide, clean and has lots of elbow room for our kids to play, there was no additional rental taxes on the home & no sales tax at the outlet (yay!) shopping, restaurants in the area are fantastic, varied and plentiful.

We think we found the 'bug infested woods' a prior reviewer mentioned. Turns out to be a nice little strip of trees before you hit the dunes to the beach. My kids loved it and I thought it a great place to organize while keeping in the shade. Despite my son's sharp look-out (he's 9 and launched on a bug-collection binge) he was unable to locate any of the promised bugs. Ah, and I was so looking forward to going home with a beetle or two - - NOT!

Getting back to the subject... The home was bright, clean and beautifully maintained. Check-in and check-out went smoothly (as smoothly as possible with hyped-up 9, 6, 5 & 3 year olds!). The views are awsome - beach one side, bay the other side.

Keep the light burning for us because we have discovered a new vacation location and will be back again next year!

Wonderful Experience!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful vacation for our extended family and this home was everything we had hoped for and more. Thank you for your hospitality and attention to detail – it was very much appreciated!

This home is on a large parcel of land with unobstructed views of both the bay and the ocean. The early risers in our group ended up sharing coffee in the breakfast nook and watching the sun come up over the ocean. The more sensible of us elected to assemble on the rear deck overlooking the bay and watch the fantastic sunsets over cocktails. The views are amazing, the privacy is priceless. When we have rented other homes there has been little area for our kids to hang out before they are in the street. I didn’t feel I needed to watch them every second with the size of the property.

The property manager rose above the call of duty when I rang her in desperation because one of the kids managed to jamb the trash compactor door closed. She personally appeared within the hour and fixed it all the while thanking us for the call. Her promise of 24/7 service was delivered graciously!

Although we read in the description that the home had appeared in magazines, we still were pleasantly surprised by the quality of furnishing and décor. You could easily see that this is a home and not just another rental property. I am an architect and found myself noting the quality and details that went into this home. I hope the owner doesn’t mind if I borrow an idea or two!

The beach across the street was blissfully uncrowded compared to the state beach down the road. We ended up getting a family portrait taken on the dunes by the trail to the beach. (Apparently this is a popular spot – we saw another group doing the picture thing a few days later).

All in all, a wonderful stay. Thank you so much!

left a bad taste

  • 2 of 5

I am compelled to write this review after seeing the owners response to the last bad review. The walk to the beach is in fact a long one. You also have to cross four lanes of traffic with cars traveling at 55 mph, then walk through a bug infested bushy area before getting to the dunes before the beach. If you have little ones- beware.

After leaving the property we were told that we broke a ceiling fan and that we had damaged a wall by slamming a door knob into it. First, how do you break a ceiling fan? Regarding the wall, we told the owner that the wall was already damaged when we arrived and that two separate adults could attest to that fact. Also, the owner should probably install a door stop to prevent a heavily used door from hitting a wall when opened. So, the owner decided to keep our security deposit.

After taking the time to write a letter describing how we took great care of this home, the owner decided not to return our deposit in full. That left a very bad taste. Renter beware.
