About The Owner

Yacht-Sea is owned by Morgan & Kathy Wootten along with their daughter and son-n-law, Carol & Steve Paul. We reside year round near University of Maryland. At Frostburg State University, we run an overnight basketball camp together for the first half of every summer... and then rush to Middlesex to spend the second half!

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Delaware

We purchased Yacht-Sea after years of looking in Middlesex Beach. We have been vacationing (renters ourselves!) in Middlesex since 1987. Once we found the private beach, we couldn't go to any other beach! Our children have grown up being allowed to play frisbee, surf and run freely on an uncrowded beach. We also came to love the privacy offered from the 1/2 acre yards in Middlesex. We have tried to make Yacht-Sea a Renter's Dream by adding all the things we wished were at the numerous houses we rented over the years (and by copying the things we LOVED at those other rentals too) Middlesex Beach is our favorite place in the world!

What makes this house unique

My husband's favorite thing is that we park our cars when we arrive and get the bikes out. Our kids love to bike to the end of the street and buy ice cream after dinner each night. They also love biking to the boardwalk. Our younger nieces and nephews love the dead end street where they are allowed to bike and play ball in the middle of the road! We love that we can walk and bike up to Summer Salt's Cafe for wings and drinks! My parents love the fine dining (especially Parkway) in the area. The kids love biking to Candy Kitchen, the Dollar Store, Chinese food and the beach supply store. We enjoy that each age group has their own area to hang out in the house. The young kids are in the loft, the teens are in the game room, the parents are in the living room and the grandparents are on the porch...all spread out... yet when it comes to meals and family game time.. there is plenty of room to gather together! Mostly we love that we are secluded! Every night we fix our beach drinks, turn on the tiki lights on the porch and press play on the beach CD...then sit back, relax and smile! (and of course at some point, roll a game of yahtzee)

Well equipped, cozy, and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Yacht-Sea. Our group of 10 adults stayed there for a week on October and found it comfortable, convenient, and well maintained. It was the perfect place for our off-season grownups' beach week -- close to the beach and boardwalk, but with plenty of space at home for games, meals, and relaxing.

One property quirk -- some of the bedrooms are not fully closed off. The loft bedroom in the main area of the house is open to the living room below and particularly open to sound.

A great getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed our second year at Yacht-Sea and loved it even more this time around. Yacht Sea affords us the space to all gather for meals yet enough room to escape from the noise if need be. As our children are getting older, the adults could go out earlier with the younger kids and let the teenagers meander out when they wanted. Gone are the days of feeling rushed to get out to the beach as soon as possible to stake your claim on whatever sand you can get your blankets on. Middlesex is a private beach w/ life guards and there was plenty of room to come out at 11 and still be Oceanside. The house has a well stocked kitchen and the benefits of bikes and extra chairs, which cuts down on the need to drag extra things along. So happy to have made another year of memories here!

Yacht Sea is wonderful, which explains why we keep returning year after year. We are 2 grandparents, 4 parents, 4 grandchildren: beds for all--real beds (no sleep couches). And lots of living space in the main level that allows both separateness and togetherness. Perfectly equipped. Including lots of games for the children. Oh yes--the air hockey table: always a treat. --Claire, DC

This is our 3rd year at Yacht-Sea and we are always thrilled to come back.

  • 5 of 5

We had our third week in 3 years in Middlesex at Yacht-Sea at the end if June. Carol had done a number of updates before the 2015 season and the house was again in great shape. The house is set up especially well for two families as the bedrooms are nicely separated. At the same time, the common areas ( including a great new setup for crabs on the screen porch) mean that everyone can come together at the end of the day. If you have never spent time in Middlesex, especially with kids, you are missing out on a wonderful, quiet beach experience. Middlesex is a private beach area which means it is much quieter than the surrounding areas and even across Route 1 the beach is still convenient and the neighborhood is composed of long dead-end streets the kids can ride bikes on. It's a hidden gem and Yacht-Sea is the best rental on that "Pine" side. We come back to Middlesex every year and can't wait for 2017.

Carol was a life saver with all the info she gave me! I broke my ankle 2 days before the trip and was sure I wouldn't be on the beach. Carol gave me info on getting a handicap wheelchair for the beach.

We had our children and their families join us and made the most wonderful memories. This was our 3rd beach trip, and as long as we can will rent from Carol that has such a family friendly place. My son was ready to head our with his family, and came back to tell me thank you for finding yacht by the sea and for seeing the importance for family memories and connections to be made.

Carol, only thing of concern is bathroom sink, it would be best to anchor sink in some way to wall. We were concerned if a child leaned on it to brush teeth or look in mirror it could come off and an injury could occur. Other than that....THANK YOU FOR ANOTHER YEAR OF GREAT MEMORIES!
