Overview

Delaware House Rental Photos and Description

- 3 bdrm, 1.5 bath, outdr shwr, Slps 8 ($starting $945)

Love Rehoboth, but want a break from the crowds? Want peace and quiet in a natural setting? Then rent on direct beach/bayfront on the white sandy Broadkill Beach on Delaware Bay....just a dozen country miles NW of Rehoboth. Beach comb, fish, canoe, hike the wild life preserve, golf, enjoy the bay view from a huge porch. We hope you can come see for yourself! Enjoy the natural setting, the natural beauty, the natural quiet!

And, due to popular demand, wireless internet and cable TV has been included.

Broadkill Beach, where the house is located, is a quiet old fishing village that is entirely residential (all single family homes), and one quaint country store. The town is NW of Rehoboth/Lewes, close enough to hop in the car to hit the outlets, restaurants, or the boardwalk, but far enough that you enjoy peace and quiet. Broadkill's sandy beach is great for sandcastles, kayaking, beach combing, and the huge wildlife refuge (Primehook) is another attraction. A few miles inland is historic Milton, home of a huge collection of Victorian era architecture, bookshop, antique shops, ice cream parlor, as well as being the home of a couple of Delaware's 19th century governors--there large homes are still there. This is truly an area for all kinds of vacation tastes.

Together, the beach, the country store, and the cottage create a 'Summer of '42' type setting (as my neighbor calls it). The house was built while the baby boomer's were still riding skate boards and the 'greatest generation' was still the 'working generation'. We have, in fact, summer patrons who came here first as children themselves, and they now bring their grand children. The cottage includes a huge porch and a deck.

The cottage also includes the living room, and 3 bedrooms. The one full bath and one half bath inside is complemented by a shower stall outside. There is more parking than you can use, complements of Broadkill's low density of housing. Lastly, the house and the porch face on direct beach/bay front. At night you can see the twinkling lights of Cape May, as well as the pitching and rolling lights of the Lewes-Cape May Ferry.

Found a Gem!

  • 5 of 5

A perfect cottage for the perfect price. Quaint, private, nested in its own concise space right on the bay front. View the bay from the porch. Short walk to the beach; just over the dune. The beach and dunes are pristine, untouched by last year's beach renovation on the southern half of Broadkill. We have vacationed at many Broadkill rentals and we rate this cottage in the top few.

Wonderful weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the beach house with friends and were pleasantly surprised at how perfect it was! Loved the vibe at the house. Couldn't be closer to the beach! Easy drive into Rehobeth for Saturday night dinner at the Brewery! Mark and Ann were easy to work with and responsive throughout!

RELAXING

  • 5 of 5

Quaint, and very comfortable beach house. We enjoyed our stay. Very quiet and relaxing! The beach was perfect for our kids (ages 5, 8). We fished everyday. House met all of our needs. If you are looking for a relaxing, quiet get away, this is the place. It was very peaceful.

Amazing Getaway”

  • 5 of 5

My family and I absolutely loved staying in this cottage.

We had a blast!

The house was just lovely and had everything we needed. Even though it's small, it was very clean and everything worked well. We were able to watch the World Cup's final game and I was able to work from my laptop without any glitches

.

The outside showers were awesome and definitely a plus!

And the beach was beautiful, specially the sunrise and sunsets.

There were a few stingrays in the water which at first freaked us out because we didn't know what it was, but then we were told by neighbors that they mate this time a year and are not dangerous. It was fun watching them get close to shore.

We also had a couple of bonfires and marshmallows during the full moon days (luckily) and it was amazing.

Even though it's summer, there were very few people at the beach, so that was really nice, specially if you're looking for a quite place to relax. It's also a great place to fish and kayak.

Our dog had a lot of fun swimming and chasing birds, so it was great that we could take her with us.

We had crabs at the Surfing Crab like 10 minutes away. Very fresh and yummy!

We'll definitely come again next year if not sooner! :)

Great Location with very nice owner

  • 5 of 5

This is my 3rd trip to Broadkill beach house. The house was clean and it has it all you need.

1/2 bathroom was hard to find but it was cute (you will know what i mean if you go there).

less than a min walking to beach.

Has outside shower.. (we might go back this summer).

Easy to find the house..

If you have kids, let them play in the deck.

Not a big house but 3bed with good rate.

Call or email the owner now. !!

Perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here. The house is very comfortable and fits our family of 5 beautifuly, it has everything we need (except dishwasher, but we used disposable plates). The outdoor shower with hot water is the best feature, it lets us enter the house free of sand.

Beaches are great, in addition to the local beach which our little kids enjoy very much (it is shallow and no waves, but the water a little bit muddy) we've been to Dewey beach, Lewes beach, Rehobot board walk and even Assateque island in Maryland. We've found great restaraunts (Surfing crab and Little Italy in Lewes, Southern Grill dinner in Ellendale) and we love local crab dishes. We even went to Washington, DC on a rainy day. We did some fishing right on the beach and caught quite a lot of fish.

We spent a nice Wednesday evening in Milton, they have concerts and kid's train rides on Wednesdays a 6pm and the ice cream in Ice Cream shop is delicious.

Kids Cottage in Lewes is a nice drop-in indoor playground with movie nights on Fridays.
