About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 11-15)

Enjoy the privacy of a gated community, without the gates. Prime Hook is located perfectly behind a wildlife refuge. Not many people know about our oasis on the bay. Close enough to the excitement, if you want it. And then come back and enjoy a bonfire on the beach.

About Patrick Leonard

We are a family of 4. My wife and I bought the Beach House 17 years ago. When we bought it was a small cottage from the 50's. 9 years ago we tore down the cottage and built our beautiful, elevated dream beach home. We have had two sons since having the beach house. The family enjoys coming to the beach year round. The kids can play outside like I used to be able to do when I was a kid. We have a chocolate lab that loves the water and the beach and we take him with us every chance. The beach is hidden and has been a safe haven for us over the years

Patrick Leonard purchased this house in 1994

Why Patrick Leonard chose Delaware

We chose this location because of the privacy and lack of commercial enterprise. We are close enough to everything that Rehoboth, Lewes and Dewey have to offer, but far enough that we can enjoy the serenity of a peaceful day. We like to relax on vacation. Primehook is the place for relaxing.

What makes this house unique

The boys enjoy, kayaking and biking. The wife and I enjoy, sunning, swimming, walking the sandbar at low tide, its awesome. So much to do.

The First floor has the Kitchen, Dining room and Living room. There are also two bedrooms on this floor, each with a full bath. One king size bed and one Queen. The first deck is on this level. The washer and dryer are conveniently located on this level as well. The second floor has A full Bath, a family room and the third bedroom. The only way to describe this bedroom is HUGE. There are three full size beds and a twin bunk, and still plenty of room to spare. The Family room provides a great place to relax and for the family to spread out. There is also a deck on the second level. On a good day one can see for miles.

In nearby Milton, about 9 miles away, we have a Food Lion, a Walgreens, a Subway, a Chinese carryout, a Domino's and one of Our favorites, the Miltonian Restaurant with Greek/Italian and American cuisine.

For more shopping we have Lewes and Rehoboth Beach and (Outlets) south on Route 1.

There is the Boardwalk in Rehoboth and further south, in Ocean City as well as historic sites, theatres, amusement parks, the incomparable Henlopen State Park on the ocean in Rehoboth and all kinds of experiences awaiting you at the shore.

Great stay near natural beach

  • 4 of 5

Great house, as advertised. One block back from beautiful natural beach. Stayed with my wife, 4 year old daughter, and german shepherd. As we were leaving my daughter said "I love Delaware beach. Can we come back to this house next year?"

Great for the size and interests of my family.

  • 4 of 5

A family vacation including grand kids and dogs, this was enough space for all of us so that we didn't feel like we were on top of each other. Beds were fine, kitchen and eating areas accommodated 12 of us. Was helpful to have the washer and dryer, dishwasher. We definitely enjoyed the lower deck for expanded kid activities. There are mosquitoes, mainly at night, but not unexpected considering the amount of water around. Loved the kayak, proximity to the beach, no one really on the beach but us and one or two other families. Wonderful having the refuge as a backyard, incredible bird life! We all had a really fun time together.

Fantastic Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and comfortable. It was large enough for everyone to have their own space. It was a little buggy but bug spray for the house and off worked well. The views from the porch were awesome between watching boats and looking at the coastlines through binoculars. It is REALLY a sort walk to the beach. We went to the state park and spent the day at the ocean and at night to the boardwalk at Rehoboth Beach and also went shopping at the outlets. The rides to these places is not more than 20-30 minutes depending on traffic. Thank you for sharing your house.

A Beach Vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week with our kids, grandchild and dog. Had a great laid back time. I loved that we did not have to find parking, fight the crowds and broadwalk. The house was plenty big enough for all of us and well equipped with everthing you need.

Well situated across the street from a beautiful private beach. People friendly. Dogs friendly.

  • 5 of 5

Surrounded by Prime Hook National Park, a beautiful marshland with trails, places to launch kayaks, fish, birdwatch. Sunrise over the bay with calm water, sunset over the marsh. Lots of animals. Few miles from Milton and Lewes/ Cape Henlopen. The home has 4 bedrooms, 2 porches with view of the marshland from the back. Clean, neat. Nice kitchen, washer & dryer, bikes and beach equipment. People friendly, dogs friendly. Relaxing.

Prime Hook Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week vacation at this Prime Hook home! The home was clean, comfortable and well decorated. We were extremely grateful that we were allowed to bring our dogs. They were allowed on the private beach, which was just a few steps away. The dogs had as good a time as we did! The owners have a double kayak, towels, beach chairs, and bikes that you are allowed to use. The kitchen was stocked with just about everything you need for meal preparations. The bathrooms were also well stocked with toilet paper, Kleenex, soap, and towels. The community is very quite and the neighbors were all very friendly. The only negative comment I have is that for the first three days we were there we could not enjoy the porches as there were too many little nat-like bugs. They all died on the third day and for the rest of the week we were able to enjoy the porches. I'm sure that was just bad timing and mother nature. Otherwise, we enjoyed many walks along the beach or street, bike rides, kayaking, beaching, swimming, relaxing. I would recommend this vacation home for any family looking to relax and share some family time together.
