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 2015 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.

As a special 'thank you', we offer repeat guests a rate lock guarantee for every continuous year they stay with us. If you loved your vacation - please come back and stay year after year!

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 Delaware

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!

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.

Thank you for the "Serene Escape" - it truly was!

  • 5 of 5

We just loved our stay at your condo. The place was warm and cozy, was decorated beautifully and was in a great location. We were there for the weekend to visit some builders and we found we were very centrally located for seeing things in the beach areas. The best thing was being able to bring our two little dogs, who seemed to also enjoy watching the sunset from your lovely screened in porch. We are going to take a look and see what vacancies you have in May as we would like to come back - it really is a very special, relaxing place. See you soon!

Relaxing, well kept and everything one would want for a vacation getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This home was a great find for us! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this this well appointed, pet friendly home. The photos don't do justice to the charm and atmosphere you will enjoy if you stay here. The owners make the entire stay easy, from the reservation, to entry, to the comfortable stay, through to the check out. We would not hesitate to book a return stay if we return to vacation in Delaware. Thank you Himes family for a delightful vacation!

Comfortable home centrally located

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable, well-kept home. Very quiet with very few neighbors around. View out back of unit was lovely and peaceful. Had everything we needed however we didn't bring paper towels or toliet paper and those were running low. Thanks for letting us bring our little dog. She liked looking out the front storm door and the screened porch out back.

Definitely recommend!

  • 5 of 5

I have absolutely no complaints about this property. It was easy to relax there, because it was clean and comfortable. The owner always provided extremely quick responses to all of my questions. This was the perfect place for my 2 children (ages 4 and 8) and our dog. We had a lot of fun crabbing, which was a first for us! Since we were close to so many beaches, we went to a different one everyday. This was our fifth year traveling to the Delaware beaches and our best family vacation ever!

So happy to hear you and your family had such a fun and relaxing stay! :)

Beautiful home, fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this property, the house is clean, neat and had everything we needed for a relaxing, comfortable vacation. The community itself is quiet and serene but close to grocery stores, restaurants etc. We used the community pool and spent hours on the dock crabbing and fishing. We spent several days at nearby beaches, our favorite was Cape Henlopen. The owner is easily reached should you need her, we had no issues. I hope to visit Delaware again and would definitely stay here again.
