Lewes House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 1 1/2 bath, sleeps 8

Our beach house is a perfect family vacation spot! Walking distance to the town of Lewes (0.9 miles), 1.6 miles from Lewes beach, and 2.8 miles to the Cape Henlopen State Park. Many outside spots for recreation: the front porch is a great spot on rainy days, and the fenced-in back yard is perfect if you plan to bring a dog. (Yes, we are dog friendly!) The outdoor shower is a must for any beach house, and another cozy spot is the back patio, complete with a gas grill for your use (traditional charcoal grill available as well).

Eat-in kitchen and dining room. Living room with sleeper sofa.

3 bedrooms -- sleep 6 easily. Master bedroom with queen-size bed, extra bedroom with queen-size bed, and small bedroom with two twins -- plus a sleeper sofa, if needed. (Linens will not be provided.)

About Bill and Clare Wilson

Bill and I have lived in Lewes for the last 10 years. We moved from Wilmington, where we were both born and raised. We lived in this house for 6 years and loved it! We live just a half mile away and Bill is retired, so we are easily accessible.

Bill and Clare Wilson purchased this house in 2007

Why Bill and Clare Wilson chose Delaware

We bought the house because of its proximity to the town of Lewes (about a 20 minute easy walk).

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this property because of its location. Once there, the front porch sealed the deal!

Had a great time..

  • 4 of 5

Drinking my coffee on our last morning here in Lewes. My daughters wondering if we have to really have to leave. I wonder if it is because they know school is a day away. But they tell me it is simply they loved "our beach house". Thank you to the Wilson's for a much needed getaway. I needed this to reset and reconnect. Clare thank you for being so easy to work with, and we hope to be back again.

Lovely house

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Clare and Bill for sharing your home. We truly enjoyed our stay, which included daily bike rides to the beach and town. The house was neat, clean, and had everything we needed. One note - not a critique, just something to be aware of - the kitchen has plenty of pots, pans, etc. for cooking; however, the supply of seasoning is limited. If you rent the house and plan to cook, just be prepared to bring or buy everything that you'll want. Would definitely stay in this house again and recommend it to others.

Repeat visitors

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the "blue house" last year and returned again this year. What more can I say? There's more than enough room for our family of 5. We can get on the beach at Cape Henlopen in less than 10 minutes, and come straight home to use the outdoor shower at the house. The place is clean and the owners very kind, accessible and accommodating.

Cute Lewes House

  • 5 of 5

The house was great! The house was decorated very nicely so it really felt like being in someone's home instead of a typical beach rental. The kitchen was well stocked. We loved the outdoor shower which was great for showering after returning from the beach. Air conditioning units were in each room so everyone could be as comfortable as they wished. We traveled with 2 dogs and we loved having the fenced in yard to allow them to run around a bit. We walked to town every morning to get walk the dogs and get coffee - nice walk to such a cute town. Very nice and accommodating owners.

Lewes Delaware

  • 5 of 5

This rental was great. The property owners, Clare and Bill, are extremely nice and attentive. We rented this house for ourselves, our two kids, my inlaws, and my nieces. Plus we have two dogs that we take with us everywhere. There was more than enough room for all of us. It has a backyard that is fenced in, great for the dogs. There is a very nice grill and an outside sitting area, which made for some nice evenings at the house after long days at the beach. Everyone in our group thought the house was really cute inside and out. The beach at Lewes is right down the road as well as the state park at the cape. Rehoboth is about 20 minutes away. This is a fantastic place to rent, especially if you are like us and take your dogs.

Charming, roomy cottage with amenities close to town and beach

  • 4 of 5

Cozy cottage on main thoroughfare with nice front porch that easily accommodated five. Plenty of parking with back yard, patio and outside shower that was a hit with kids. Very accommodating proprietors who want to ensure stay is enjoyable. Short drive to town and beach. Highly recommend!
