AWESOME BEACH HOME AVAIABLE JULY 21-26TH, AND SEPTEMBER, ACCEPTING 2015 ALREADY!

Slaughter Beach House Rental Photos and Description

One of the Nicest Homes in Slaughter Beach Available July 01, VRBO first time!

Newer home custom constructed in 2007, completed in 2009. Be the first to rent our well appointed beach house. We decided to spend the summer in Alaska! Listed with VRBO June 24th, 2014 be the first reservation for July 4th holiday! This house has an awesome kitchen and open entertainment area.

The home's style is comtemporary with beach accents . YET NOT STUFFY or Mausoleum like ! How about cool, and bring the kids and the pets! Just no Newfoundlands, aka large dogs! Seriously bring the parents, kids, pets, neighbors, best friends and spread out! We have plenty I mean plenty of room for your amazing get away. Pricing, nowhere, nowhere can you get this kind of home for the price and split the ticket with your friends. Single rooms in Rehoboth near the beach are 200-299, 399 for the Boardwalk. You get our place and can cook your meals and enjoy the serenity ! No traffic, no crowded beaches! Kick back with a glass of wine and escape...

It is a bay beach and that means at low tide sometimes the water can be brackish you will have to wait until high tide to swim or walk 300 yards south where the jetty doesn't affect the shore. IF you're lucky there might be some winds that pick up and you can enjoy the white caps and watch the kids boogie board. Surfing probably if your starting out might happen with the tides changing. But this beach is perfect for little kids the surf is predictable unless there's a storm brewing...you can basically sit and watch the kids comb the beach for treasures. Launch a jet ski, kayak, canoe, paddle board off the front yard and no worries about strong currents and little kids.

Please have an appreciation for horseshoe crabs as they tend to wash up after hi tide, and all the other amazing critters you will find.... kids will love it!

The house has basic cable plus wireless.

The house has 4 bedrooms and a den that can be used as a sleep area. 3 full baths , 2 with jet tubs, an outside shower and a 1/2 bath . Gas grill, views, views, views, memories, memories! You will love it here!

Amazing weekend with family

  • 5 of 5
Kim was a great host even though she was away herself on vacation as she was very helpful and courteous answering my many questions prior to and even after arriving! House is amazing, from the moment we arrived we were pleasantly surprised that everything was better than the pictures, gorgeous kitchen, gorgeous bathrooms and very well-appointed bedrooms facing the water. 12 of us stayed the week and we couldn’t have had a better time! The house is a short 20 min drive to the Rehoboth, shopping (outlets) and bars but we found that we didn’t have go out at all because the house really did had it all (kayaking, bike riding, grilling and all important beach!). Neighbors especially Bob were great and helpful with lots of tips on the area and we especially loved all the fresh produce and eggs from the local farm stands that were just 5 mins. ride by car. Will be back for sure, highly recommended!

Total Gem

  • 5 of 5
My family of 4 rented this house over the 4th of july week. The home is gorgeous with an amazing view of the Bay and stocked with everything you need including sea kayaks, bikes and crab pots. The stocked kitchen is gorgeous and we enjoyed cooking our meals while enjoying the views. We were looking for a quiet beach vacation with no crowds and Slaughter Beach delivers that. We enjoyed spending some time at the beach in front of the house, collecting shells, watching the skates, fishing during high tide and taking the kayaks out. We also spent a lot of time at the beach access 2 miles down the road by the firehouse. It was a great place to boogie board, lay out, Fly kites and fish. The owner of the property happened to be staying close by during our stay and was so helpful filling us in on the area and making us feel welcome. (Thank you Kim for the bottle of wine and scented candle burning when we walked in. ) We loved our vacation at Slaughter Beach and hope to get back there one day. If so,, we will surely rent this home again.

Thank you so very much this is a awesome review! Your family was very charming and it was my pleasure to have met you .

I am thrilled you enjoyed the house and we are always trying to improve the experience. We hope to see you again soon. Thank you family for me and thank you for taking such great care of our home.

Nice and peacefull getaway!

  • 5 of 5
The house is absolutely beautiful, great layout, wonderful kitchen...everything is up to date and very well maintained. Lovely little street with very friendly neighbors. Beautiful views over the bay. The main beach is a 3 minute car ride away, not very crowded. Everything is very dog friendly. We also went to Lewes and Cape Henlopen a few times, which is about 30 min. in the car. You do need to drive in order to get to some restaurants or shopping etc. We had a great time and would definitely consider it again.

Above Awesome!!!

Awesome doesn't begin to describe this beautiful beach home!!! From the immaculate accommodations to the amenities such as bikes and kayaks, my family and I were able to enjoy a number of activities together. I would strongly recommend this home to anyone wanting to vacation at the beach. This owner has really taken into consideration the guests and their needs/wants.

Our home is located in a serene ,pristine, protected marine estuary. You will be surrounded by all kinds of critters and will witness nature from any of our large decks or beachfront yard.

Google the history of Slaughter Beach and you will find lots of history here! The town was founded in 1681 and incorporated in 1931. Slaughter Beach used to be a bustling little get away for Wilmington and Philadelphia. Once upon a time SB had a grocery store, hotel, and even a boardwalk where passengers were dropped off from all over. A really bad storm took that away but a few folks can still talk about the good ole days. Google Fort Saulsbury and you will learn about Slaughter Beaches contributions to both WWI, and WWII! There is a bunker in the back bay now taken over by a goat, boar farm! Did you know that Delaware bays' harbor 1000's of shipwrecks? There were plenty of pirates, Spanish fleets, Irish passenger and Cargo ships trying to make it to the largest Port of Call once upon a time, Philadephia! There are presumably over 200 shipwrecks near or in front of Slaughter Beach! Bring your metal detector you might get lucky. AaaRRRR! Philadelphia and Wilmington were very popular targets during the industrial period, and Germany wanted to destroy them! Slaughter beach was on the way .You can also google the history of my alternate favorite place, Lewes Del, about 19 miles south of Slaughter Beach. You and the kids CAN enter those lookout towers and see cannons, big guns, and the paths where ordinances may still be buried. Very cool!

If you enjoy nature this place is magical. You will find on your exploration :horseshoe crabs, diamond back terrapins, porpoises, Heron, seals, shorebirds, snowy egrets, seagulls, Bald Eagles, red fox, and white tail deer to name a few.

If your a bird watcher: stilts, bobwhite, dowitchers, skimmer shenanigans, wave runners, wood-warblers, black skimmers, sandpipers, swallows, purple martins, and the list goes on. It is a protected bay/marine estuary.

The Dupont Nature Center is one street over, it's a short walk or bike ride. Both parents and kids will love the tour, and pick up some fresh fish from the fish market. You can also launch your boat from the Marina free of charge. Crab from the backyard, fish off the docks, or surf fish from the front yard of our house.

If you like to bike Bay Ave is on the scenic bay trail and you will be joined by many bikers enjoying the trail. It's a perfect ride or walk to connect with Nature. Kayak , sail, paddle board from the front yard. Swimming at high tide and boogie boarding and waterplay are available from 30 steps.

Have a nightly bonfire, walk your dog, and enjoy an adult beverage without permits and restrictions. No parking passes required!

Slaughter Beach minimart is a short bike ride, or long walk, under 2 miles away. They have snacks, some groceries, sunscreen, bait and tackle and rent paddle boards!

We have caught blue crab from our kayaks 50 feet off shore, and flounder off the beach. If you are lucky enough to book this rental for July 4th weekend be sure to attend the sailing regatta there is a lot of fun to be had!

Slaughter Beach pavilion is located 2 miles south next to the fire hall if you want to encounter more people.

We like our serene quiet beach that's blocked off from tourism.

Should you want to venture out for hustle and bustle , the Tanger/Rehoboth Outlets are 22 miles south and there are several waterparks, a boardwalk , and fabulous dining. Tax free shopping in Delaware!

My favorite alternate is Lewes and Cape Henlopen Park with the kids. I mentiond earlier the bunkers and look out towers, be sure to visit the last operated coast guard station, Henlopen Station that manned the waters by actually rowing! Look up Captain Jones...he was my great grandfather!

While in Lewes be sure to take the kids to Lewes Pirate Expeditions they will love it! Make a reservation early and watch the kids take on a pirate and a treasure hunt at sea! Be sure to stop at the Zwaanendaal Museum and ask them directions to the house that still has a cannon ball lodged in the foundation..Circa.. pirate days!

Locally 4 miles away is the historic town of Milford Delaware with many shops, restaurants, antique malls, a very large new library, chain supermarkets, walmart, art studios, bakerys 'La Dolce', parks, fitness centers, there is also a hospital etc..

Every Saturday beginning at 8 am there is a farmers market on canal street with fresh produce arts and crafts, usually kid activities every Saturday. Try the new micro brewery tasting room off airport road, Misipillion Brewery!

NASCAR fans are welcome! Dover Downs and Casino is 28 miles north of us and visit the Sunday brunch if it's rainy! Harrington Casino is only 12 miles and 'Bones' another good choice.

If your really into history take the kids to Frederica and visit the start of the Underground railroad! And the Mason-Dixon Line. We are surrounded by rich history and NATURE!
