Just back from a fantastic week in Lewes DE. This 650 sq ft condo with two bedrooms and two baths, fully equiped kitchen, living room and great balcony overlooking the canal was perfect! I was traveling alone, but, it would also be great for two friends traveling together and wanting seperate bedrooms and baths or a couple with a child looking for a place to call home for a week.
I much prefer this to a B&B because it is less exensive, much more space and cost me just $75 worth of groceries for the week instead of the cost of eating out all of the time.
You are 5 minutes walk to the beach in one direction and 5 minutes walk to downtown Lewes in the other direction. I actually clocked 50 miles on my pedometer during the week because the area is great for walking. Trips twice a day to the beach to look for shells and I even found artifacts of a 1798 shipwreck that was discovered in 2005. People at the Zwannendael Museum in town told me about finding the shipwreck in 2005 near the Roosevelt inlet and showed me samples of what to look for as I walked from Lewes Bay toward the Roosevelt inlet. I found three pieces of 200 yr old German blue-gray stoneware each about the size of a quarter!
You are less than 2 miles from Cape Henlopen and the ocean. On my first visit to the park I saw dolphins swimming about 50 yards off shore. On my next visit I took advantage of the park's free bike loaner program to bicycle though the park.
This condo is such a central location to everything! Even on a rainy day it is just pleasent to sit out on the balcony to enjoy the boats and harbor lights.
I liked the second floor condo, but, be aware there are steps to get your things up to the second floor. Two smaller suitcases would be a better choice than trying to carry one large suitcase up the stairs.
If you want a central location and place to call home for a week and not just a room and living out of a suitcase for a week - this is the place to rent. This is a great choice any time of the year, not just in the summer.
