Why The Owner chose Delaware

This is an older home that has been fixed up clean and nicely. It is a wonderful, roomy home to allow your family including pets to have a great time and to visit the more expensive beaches. This home allows you to have a place to stay and travel to Rehoboth,Dewey or even Ocean City without spending all your money on rental fees!

High tide brings a quiet bay beach...different then the busy rush and push of the Ocean.. Previous guest have loved this for small children, Enjoy The Bay at our home!!! Your children and animals will enjoy it. It is affordable to bring pets at a 50.00 fee. each. WE, love animals, and ours go everywhere.Because of the extra clean home you will be occupying,We do charge additional fee of 50.00 per animal for cleaning purposes. Please take care of our home as if it were yours.. so we can keep prices down. Your 500.00 deposit is returned as long as no damages or smoking has NOT occurred. WELCOME to our Clean Home! 950.00 a week plus 50.00 each for any animal each and 500.00 security deposit which will again be returned provided there are no damages or excessive cleaning. We have only had one accident in seven years,which was 135.00 for a doggie chewing the woodwork. Accidents happen and we understand.

What makes this house unique

The Quiet Bay allows the safety of your young children to play. Very quiet town, Not a noisy town full of traffic and arm to arm people. There is a lot of nature around to see and many close places to travel to in Milford Delaware and Milton Delaware for great Seafood. Meddings Seafood in Frederica Delaware is well known and only 15 minutes away. Google Meddings!!! Irish Eyes in Milton Delaware is also very good, along with many others..AND if you are here do not forget Delawares famous Beach Pizza GROTTOS, which now is located in Milford Delaware too and offers delivery to Slaughter Beach. Traveling to the larger Delaware beaches: Rehoboth is only twenty minutes away( 23 miles) Dewy Beach which is known for the fast action and late parties, is 25 minutes away (23.9 miles) Ocean City Maryland about 60 minutes away ( 53 miles) You will hit Beautiful Fen-wick Island prior to Ocean City.

This house is my Serenity. I am self employed and often hide out here to enjoy quiet time, less traffic, and sitting on the front porch with all the windows open enjoying the breeze off the bay, A great place to read a book or just have your coffee in the morning. When I need more excitement and bigger waves and all the wonderful things on the Eastern Shore, I am only 20 to 30 minutes away from the Ocean, The Outlets which are tax free, Wonderful places to eat, The movie theater,Golfing, Enjoy our Home. Bring Your babies (doggies ~upon approval!!!)Because of the extra clean home you will be occupying,We do charge additional fee of 50.00 per animal for cleaning purposes.

Janet was so wonderful to work with. I had talked to her personally a few times which was very nice. My vacation was only for a few days and she was so kind to send me the lease agreement in the mail and for me to send back and she would save my dates. Then unforeseen family issues arose that I had to cancel my vacation all together. When I contacted Janet about the situation she was more than understanding and refunded my entire deposit. I will most definitely seek to stay here next year or as soon as possible. Janet was so friendly!! Thank you so much!!

Very cozy and tranquil stay at Slaughter Beach.

  • 5 of 5

We had an enjoyable stay at this property. Each room was nicely decorated and we felt right at home. There's a screened in front porch as well which was nice to relax in. Its location was very close to Slaughter Beach (right across the street) and a relatively short drive to the more popular Rehoboth and Dewey beaches (half hour). All around and on the property there were critters which were a joy to see. There's pretty much everything you need in the house for your vacation. Being able to take your pooch was an extra bonus! The homeowners were very nice and we would definitely recommend staying here!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for a little over a week, and had the best sleep every night! Janet's place was very clean and decorated so nicely for a beach house. Each member of our family had their own place to sleep and plenty of room in the house for us to spread out. We loved spending time on the sunporch, which truly helps when you want to avoid the flies that are popular in this region! It was also nice to see that Janet had a few things already in stock that I didn't have to purchase, such as the time I needed only one sandwich baggie. The location was perfect for our needs to travel to Dover, as well as to head south to the vineyards and Dogfish Head Brewery, OCMD, Assateague, and Cape Henlopen. Although it is practically in the middle of nowhere (6 mi. to the highway), the tranquility was wonderful and we planned our outings to the store, gas station, dinner, etc. more carefully because of it. Beautiful location, sunsets, beach just footsteps away (however, the flies did get to me once it got warm....not so bad when it was cooler). Overall, wonderful house and location and I'd even give the beach a B for it's secusion! Thank you for a great, successful vacation.

great property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

the pictures don't do the property justice. it is a wonderful beach style house that has been furnished with everything that you need for your holiday. We loved all the beach themed decoration and ornaments, it made it feel very welcoming and homely. Wonderful location with the beach only a couple of minutes walk away although you can actually see the sea across the road.

We would definitely recommend staying here and are planning to do so ourselves again in the future.

many thanks to Janet for providing a wonderful place to stay and make our holiday all the more enjoyable.

Very nice home by the bay; best friend perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Janet, thank you so much for your hospitality and allowing us to adjust our plans by a week due to the warning of the possible land fall of hurricane Joaquin. The home and weather was perfect the following weekend. Your home was a perfect match for my wife, myself and our dogs. We felt right at home immediately. The rooms are large and nicely furnished. Thank you for having cable TV and WiFi.

The little fenced area was ideal to sit outside in the sun and enjoy the bay breezes, the dogs wanted to hang there at every chance. The rest of the property was private and great for walking the dogs, we loved it, the dogs did also but I'm not sure your family of rabbits were as happy!

We enjoyed our stay and will return again.

Truly a fisherman's dream located just steps from the Bay and just minutes from launching your boat. Four hours south of New York City, two hours west of Washington, D.C, one hour north of Ocean City, MD, and located 20 minutes north of Rehoboth Beach. Rehoboth Beach is full of exciting things, including the boardwalk with rides and great food. Don't miss your cold stone ice cream, thrasher's fries and Grottos pizza. If you don't like the beach, try the exciting water park 'Jungle Jims'. Raining? Visit the outlets or the midway movie theater in Rehoboth as well! Tennis and Golfing are just ten minutes away. We're minutes away from State Parks, where you can enjoy surf fishing, the bike trails or just relaxing on the beach. Don't forget to bring your quarters because Harrington Slots or Dover Downs Casino and Horse races are only 20 minutes away! Enjoy a ride on the Cape May Lewes Ferry, just twenty minutes away. At the end of the day, come back to a quiet home!! Peaceful!!!

Other Activities: Surf fishing, Boating, very close to historical Milton, short drive to outlets and destination beaches

Golf: Golfing is everywhere around the Milford area as wella as the beach!!!! THE ZOO IS IN SALISBURY MD ONLY 45 minute drive!!!!! NICE town for a zoo visit and even more shops,antiques and another MALL!!!!!!
