- The kitchen is well appointed, fully equipped, and spacious with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and a breakfast bar that seats four.

- The living room, dining room, and kitchen make up the great room on the 3rd floor with vaulted ceilings, bamboo hardwood floor, and sweeping views from the oversized windows.

-During Peak Season - Weekly rentals from Saturday to Saturday only please.

- Broadkill Beach is a rare find on the eastern seaboard, its gentle waves are ideal for children, kayaking and swimming. It is a residential beach with one country store located ¼ mile walk from the house. It’s isolated from the commercial development of the Delaware coast by the Primehook National Wildlife Refuge, yet it’s only 10-15 miles from all the shops, restaurants, bars and boardwalk of Rehoboth, Lewes, and Dewey. The best of both worlds are found in Broadkill, a quiet beach to enjoy the solitude of the water, friends, and family, yet minutes from the attractions.

- Non-smoking property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks kindly to all of our guests who have taken the time to submit a review, and for all of your positive feedback! We too enjoy spending quiet relaxing days at the beach house, and thanks to our guests for noting that we've done our best to make it comfortable and luxury.

I'd also like you to note that we were not aware that our current housekeeper has been leaving the house less than spotless, and we are taking immediate steps to ensure that the cleanliness of the house matches the quality service that we provide!

Amazing home and community!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved it at Chill Awhile! The house was amazing! It provided plenty of room for everyone. All of the extra amenities (towels, linens, fully stocked kitchen, kayaks, bikes, beach toys, and puzzles) made it even better! The beach was our favorite part - very few people there! The water was the perfect temp and small waves. The neighbors are all so friendly. The Broadkill Store has the best doughnuts ever! We will definitely be returning!

The perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

My siblings, partners and mom just attended our niece's wedding in Wilmington, and were looking for the perfect spot for the family to have a mini-reunion. And this was IT! Heather is so easy and clear to work with. The home offered us great space for talking, hanging out. The screened porches hosted clusters of us at all times - coffee in the morning, and wine in the evening. The large table accommodated the group for meals and games. We found the well-stocked kitchen perfect for prep - we could continue chatting with some cooking and others perched at the high counter on stools. Lots of good pots and pans, knives, spices, oil, coffee filters, towels made it easy. Plenty of great bedding, towels and beach towels. And 3.5 bathrooms! That's 2.5 more than we had growing up! The furniture and beds were all in great shape, comfortable and attractive. We ventured into Rohoboth one afternoon, but were glad to be staying on our very serene and beautiful Broadkill Beach. If we had not been so relaxed, we could have enjoyed all the extra toys they provide: kayaks, paddle boats, canoe, raft, bicycles. We were carefree and the stay was trouble-free. Big thanks to Heather and Bill.

Great place for 2 families to enjoy.

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 families who had a wonderful time here. The beach for the bay is a 2 minute walk. There were very few people, making it a relaxing walk. Even as we walked into the house, we realized that we signed up for a better than expected experience. The owners have thoughtfully put together an abundance of towels, linens, bathroom mats, and the pantry with needed condiments. There were board and other games that we could play with the kids, and a variety of books in the different rooms. God bless them. We have to drive a distance of 7 miles (through a national wildlife refuge) to the nearest grocery store or restaurant, but there is a small convenience store with basic items, 200 meters away.
