We are very excited to be apart of this community and hope that you love it as much as we do! We fell in love with the charm, relaxing atmosphere, and friendly people in this community (along with the bay access, pool, close by beaches, and tax free shopping!). We love the quaint feeling this area offers - but also that we can quickly get to the hustle and bustle of a typical beach town.

Our home is approximately 10 miles from route 1 and multiple beaches (Rehoboth and DE State Parks), all with parking available. For example, parking at the DE State Parks is $10 a car (summer 2017 rate) for out of state and valid at ALL DE State Parks for the entire day.

Gull Point offers the best of both worlds and is unlike any other community because it offers not only pool access and a nicely maintained pool house, but also walking distance to the bay. Our home is about a 1-2 minute stroll to picturesque views.

Fishing and crabbing may be done from the community piers. (Fishing license may be obtained at a number of nearby facilities and are available for a nominal fee). Boat docks available for rent with boat ramp right next door.

Our hope is that you will make many new memories while vacationing in our home and come back year after year. Our goal is to provide a warm and welcoming, well decorated home with all the amenities you need to make your stay with us relaxing and enjoyable.

About Rebecca

Our family first vacationed in this community in 2014 and absolutely fell in love with it's easy going charm and relaxing atmosphere. We swam, fished and caught blue crabs off the private community only piers and were able to get to the hustle and bustle of a typical beach town. It felt amazing to sit in the gazebo on the water in the marina and just watch the boats and enjoy the bay breeze. This was easily one of the best vacations we ever had, so much so we had to purchase a home to make it a home away from home escape.

Why Rebecca chose Millsboro

After visiting many other communities in the area, there were none that offered walking distance to the bay, with a private marina and a pool. We did not like the idea of sharing one community pool with hundreds of other homes in a community. Our home is in a small, hidden gem on the Indian River Bay and we did not find another community in the area that offered what we found with Gull Point.

In our opinion this community has everything we need; peace and quiet days spent relaxing by the pool or on the back deck, fun filled afternoons on the pier catching blue crabs, quick drive to multiple beach towns when the mood strikes. We are so grateful that we have found this community and we cannot wait to see what other memories will be made at our serene escape.

We provide two small crab traps and a net for guest's use during their stay. Please do not leave them unattended on the piers. (Please note: you do need a fishing license to fish and/or crab on the piers...we like to use Bill's Sport Shop in Lewes to obtain license, however Rick's Bait and Tackle is closer. Note: Rick's only accepts cash to pay for fishing license). We also have two folding chairs you may use and a beach umbrella if you opt to go to the beach. Please return all items to the location found so other guests can enjoy the same extras as you. Thanks!

Property was well maintained. Very peaceful! !

  • 5 of 5

All the residents that live there were very friendly and we had some nice conversations. Community pool was bigger then some I've seen and well maintained. It was fun setting the crab pots and catching our own fresh crabs. Only a 30 min max drive to everything you could possibly need. Good restaurants close by. Most of all very peaceful and quiet.

Well maintained, very relaxing, great area. Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

I cannot state enough how wonderful our stay was, the house was clean and well maintained. The information/welcome book was so helpful, and made you feel right at home from the minute you walked into the front door. They have tried to think of everything you might need, right down to the aloe for a sunburn. Our family had a great time in the community, talking to the locals about places to go, tips on crabbing, which help our kids land 11 in the crab pot on day 1. The pool was clean and very close to the unit. It was simply a perfect get away. Will definatley try to plan enough vacation in the area and stay here. Just wonderful.

Very quaint and quiet community

  • 5 of 5

Townhouse very clean and fully equipped. We have a boat and rented boat slip for the week. Home owners are very quick to respond and delight to communicate with. Very quiet community but only 20 minute drive to beaches. Home is so tastefully decorated and equipped it feels like your home away from home.

Great Central Location

  • 5 of 5

Our Family has been staying in rentals in Delaware for years. This was one of the nicest and the owner was easy to work with and was extremely fast in responding. This home is very nice and all the extras are a nice touch. The location is ideal as it is quiet but is still close to shops, restaurants, etc but not in the craziness of Route 1. It is a quick drive to all the beaches, but the community has a warm atmosphere. We enjoyed our two weeks here and would recommend this home to anyone who is looking for the best of both worlds of quiet and relaxing, but can be in the heart of the beach crowd within minutes.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review! You nailed exactly what we love about the community and area. Very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your comments regarding our home. When we decided to rent, we wanted to evoke the feelings being shared by you (and all the others who have left reviews) and make it truly feel like a home away from home. Everything provided is what we would like to have in a rental and to have a comfy and inviting environment to vacation...happy to hear we are hitting the mark and exceeding the quality of other rentals in the DE area.
