About Owner

This is our future retirement home and we can't wait to be here full time. We have enjoyed the Lewes/Rehoboth Beach area for the last four decades with family and friends and are happy to now own a house here. We currently live and work in the Lehigh Valley Area of Pennsylvania and visit as much as we can to enjoy the beach and the peaceful setting of our home.

Owner purchased this house in 2012

Why Owner chose Lewes

We love the closeness to the beach, restaurants and shopping but love to come back to our serene setting on Love Creek.

What makes this house unique

When we were looking for our retirement home we fell in love with the mature trees, the private location, the sunsets over Love Creek and the amazing home.

There is nothing like sitting on the flagstone patio in the morning to greet the day and watch the birds come to visit the feeders and watch the ospreys fly over Love Creek. And then at the end of a busy day at the beach or sightseeing to come back, sit out on the patio and watch the sunset. And because there are no distracting lights, the stars at night are incredible.

Guestbook comments from the owner

You have a beautiful home – we especially enjoyed the birds being the only “life” noise of the week! Thank you for sharing your home.

A relaxing place to stay

  • 5 of 5
This is not a typical beach rental. It’s the owners' future retirement home on a premium lot at the end of a cul-de-sac in a quiet well maintained subdivision. You truly feel like their welcome guests staying here. The backyard is very private as there are many trees with wetlands and Love Creek beyond. We found it very relaxing to sit in the rocking chairs on the flagstone patio enjoying this natural setting. The great room takes advantage of this view with an abundance of windows. It’s a short drive from this home to Lewes or Rehoboth Beach and all the restaurants and stores you’ll need on your vacation. We were here in October and particularly enjoyed hiking the many trails and walking along the beaches in Cape Henlopen State Park. We also visited the nearby Prime Hook and Bombay National Wildlife Refuges along the Delaware Bay to do some bird watching. If you enjoy ocean beaches, wetlands and viewing wildlife then you'll want to enjoy quality time here with family and/or friends. The owners were very professional and helpful in making our rental reservation.

Owner's Response: You have so very kindly highlighted all the reasons that we picked this home to be our retirement home. And until we can be here full time we do love sharing our home with guests that appreciate the charm and appeal of this special place. Thank you so much for your gracious complements.

Peaceful surroundings

  • 5 of 5
This was our 11th year vacationing at Rehoboth Beach. We have always stayed within walking distance of the beach/boardwalk and for one week. This year we decided to make it a 2 week trip and decided to stay "off campus" and try that out. This home and location did not disappoint. The homeowner was wonderful to work with and the accommodations were just as described. We were able to enjoy the action at the beach/boardwalk and Funland but this year we were also able to enjoy the peaceful surroundings of this well appointed home. Our kids ages 13 & 15 loved spending time at the pool and became avid birdwatchers in the backyard. Thanks for sharing your home!

Owner's Response: “So close, yet so far away” could be the motto for our home. We are just two short miles from restaurants, grocery stores, shopping and mini golf, yet miles away from the noise and traffic. And when you are relaxing on the patio and watching the ospreys fly and the sunset, it’s the best place to be!
It is so wonderful to know that our guests had a memorable vacation and even began new hobbies and interests as a result of staying at our home! Thank you for your very gracious complements!

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5
This home is as pretty as the pictures. It is close to everything, yet secluded and private. Coffee on the patio overlooking the woods and wetlands is the perfect way to start your day. The house is spacious and beautifully decorated. The pool and tennis courts are huge bonuses. The surrounding neighborhood is lovely. We found the residents to be incredibly friendly and hospitable. I would highly recommend this rental. You should be aware that you are expected to fully clean the home before leaving. A cleaning service is not an option.

Owner's Response: We have taken great pleasure in tastefully decorating our home and giving it those extra special touches that we so enjoy, even doing seasonal decorating. We want our guests to have a memorable and pleasing stay at our home and work hard to make sure that happens. Having our guests clean after their stay instead of hiring a cleaning service has kept our home exceptionally clean and allowed us to rent our home at a lower cost. We always inform our guests of this expectation. We found that most of the time our guests leave it even cleaner than a cleaning service and are very mindful of the families that will be staying after them. We always inspect our home between guest visits to make sure our home is truly in the best condition for the next family. Thank you for your kind complements.

Enjoyed our stay.

Thanks for sharing your home. The house was well laid out. We enjoyed the location, close to the beach, wooded area and the community pool. My family said "this house really felt like a home." Would recommend it to a friend.

Owner's Response: Location is everything and that’s what attracted us to our home. So close to the beach, restaurants and activities yet far removed from the noise, traffic and lights of a beach resort. Glad you enjoyed your stay and that you found our home welcoming. We want our guests to enjoy our hospitality the moment they walk in the door. Thank you for your kind remarks.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home in Lewes. The scenic back patio provided quiet and relaxing coffee mornings, and card playing evenings. The neighborhood is extremely clean, pleasant, and friendly. The pool area was a welcome break from the ocean waves, and the pier was great for bird watching and fishing. The home itself is very clean and the accommodations are extremely comfortable. We will stay here again when we return to Lewes!

Owner's Response: We are so very pleased with the addition of our new flagstone patio. It has given us even more room to sit and relax and enjoy the scenery, read or even take a nap. So glad that you fully made use of it and so glad that you enjoyed your stay. The comfort and satisfaction of our guests is very important to us. Thank you for your great review.

Even Better Than Expected!

  • 5 of 5
My four children, mother and I just returned home from our first visit to Lewes for my brother's wedding. I am so glad we rented this house as opposed to hotel rooms for the weekend. The house is in a lovely and convenient area. It is even prettier in person than in the photos. The house is welcoming, beautifully appointed and extremely clean and comfortable. It was a pleasure making the arrangements with the owner, who was very helpful providing many details about the house and surrounding area. We did not want to leave and hope to return soon!

Owner's Response: Our goal is to provide our guests with a warm, welcoming, experience that surpasses a hotel stay. We want our home to reflect a style that exceeds the normal “beach rental” decor. The comfort and satisfaction of our guests is very important to us. Glad you had a wonderful visit and thank you for your gracious complements.
