-Built in 2007, this home has an inverted floor plan with 3 bedrooms and laundry facilities on the 2nd floor and the living area and 4th bedroom on the 3rd floor in order to take advantage of the ocean and wildlife refuge views.

- A rooftop terrace has panoramic views of the Delaware Bay and the Primehook National Wildlife Preserve and is a perfect to place to enjoy dinner and a sunset. 2 large screened-in porches on the 2nd and 3rd floors offer beautiful views.

- 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!

Lovely home for vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at this lovely home. The walk to the beach is very quick and the house is very comfortable. We had 6 adults and 2 children and there was a lot of room to relax and enjoy the house. The cupola was really cool and during a lightning storm a great place to watch the action. You can see the beach easily from the 3rd floor too which is really nice.

This is a great place for a family beach vacation

The house was beautiful and clean. The beach was a perfect walking distance.

  • 5 of 5

Accomodates ten people comfortably. The open kitchen and living room was perfect for hosting, especially with the grill on the same floor. Having all the bedding, beach towels, cooking supplies, and reading material available put our minds at ease while packing. The location is perfect. It is close to the private beach, breweries, lewes, and tons of shopping centers. The Broadkill Beach Store was so close and carried any necessities you forgot, plus they have amazing sticky buns and donuts!!! We very much recommend this house. Only thing to be aware of is the mosquitoes, but that may have been the season! Bring the bug spray!

Great Home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week with 2 other couples. We couldn't have asked for a better rental. So convenient to the beach, and great having beach towels provided and all other linens. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook all week. The enclosed decks were great in the evening and the crow's nest offered an amazing view. I would highly recommend this property and Broadkill Beach as a vacation spot!

Wonderful Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time staying at this beautiful beach house. The house is updated and clean with plenty of space. It's loaded with everything you'll need (fully stocked kitchen, beach towels, extra blankets, etc.). We loved the fourth floor deck as well as the screened in porches to look out either over the bay or into the nature preserve. The neighborhood was quiet and full of friendly people. There is a general store within walking distance that had some food, baked goods, and souvineers. The beach is a small walk away and the water was nice and warm during our stay.

The closest supermarket is a Food Lion about 10-15 minutes away but it's an easy drive down Broadkill Road. Downtown Milton is also about the same distance away and had nice restaurants and a homemade ice cream shop. We also visited the Dogfish Head brewery and Nassau Valley vineyard during our stay.

We would absolutely come here again! Thanks to the Fenwicks for allowing us to have such a lovely trip. Hope to be back next year!

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!
