Broadkill beach

  • 4 of 5

Home was very comfortable and views are awesome. We had bad weather but made the best of it. Imagine during prime season this would be a fun place to rent.

Great last summer hurrah!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed an amazing 3 days on Broadkill Beach. This house was perfect for our families! The boys were able to do a lot of surf fishing, catching lots of sand sharks, 2 stingrays, and a crab! The home was clean and cozy. We were thrilled to even find coffee in the cupboard! The decks are amazing and were enjoyed thoroughly. I can't say enough great things about his amazing home, quiet location, and serene, natural beach! We will definitely be back!

2024 Bayshore Drive, Broadkill Beach, DE

  • 4 of 5

This was our second year at the house on the beach. New furniture, carpet, and fresh paint were welcome improvements. The screened porch, however, continues to disappoint with its large bar (a table and chairs would be much more useful) and ripped screen. Even though widening the beach and making the dunes higher was necessary, it still made it much more difficult to get to the water. Overall, we had a nice vacation.

Overall the house fit our needs perfectly

  • 4 of 5

Neighbors on both sides are not renters and both very friendly. We had a full house with plenty of room to spread out. The kitchen is too small for groups with a few cooks. Bring knives unless all you want to cut is melted butter. Other than that this kitchen is packed. As previous renters have stated the cleaning left a lot to be desired. I sent pictures to Jessica of the stains, marks on the walls and dead bugs left laying around. The one thing that concerned me was cooling a house with only window air conditioning units. They did keep the house cool for the most part. The large room upstairs was too hot most of the time even with the unit going 24/7. My family did not like listening to a few of the older units rattle all night. There are 3 sky lite Windows. I did find a shade for one wrinkled up and thrown under the bed. Again missed by the cleaners. There are fire extinguishers in the cupboard as stated. Last serviced in 2003. That is not only a concern but a fire code violation. So my advice is rent this house, just take cleaners, steak knives and forget the bad parts and enjoy staying on the beach. The decks are wonderful! The view is unmatched.

Overall lovely

  • 4 of 5

Some updates have occurred since our stay 2 years ago and they were excellent - new living room furniture and drapes, for instance. Overall all this house is really delightful, with fabulous views and a very cozy feel inside. We love the upper deck, the wee screened porch, and the large deck below. It is well appointed and the new carpets were fabulous. The negatives listed below are minor and easily addressed. So, overall, we had a fabulous time because BEACH! And again, in general, the house is lovely. Outdoor shower a huge plus!

It was the lack of general maintenance and the cleaning crew that took away from a 5 star review. We were on time at 2 p.m., but the cleaner was still there due to a late check out elsewhere. No problem, we could hang out on the deck. A few minutes later a second cleaner showed up to assist, said it would be about 45 minutes. It was 10-15 minutes before they were done and I think they skipped things. The kitchen floor was sticky to walk on, like floor cleaner that hadn't been rinsed. The floor was dirty under the kitchen rugs, which we rolled up to keep clean for the week. Powder room toilet bowl was streaked with dirt. Kitchen and other bath surfaces were clean. There were ~50 baby houseflies as soon as we walked in. Not your, "Hey, we're at the beach, hello flies!" Eggs had been laid somewhere and we couldn't find where, so we swatted, sprayed, and eventually put up fly strips because they were so numerous. If they had come from garbage left by the previous tenants I feel the cleaners could have at sprayed, swatted, or even just warned us. Those flies were with us *in plenty* for 6 days. The house key box was left open and we had to hunt in the dirt to find the front.

Maintenance - no cold water in powder room sink, couldn't budge shut-off/on valve. Screens bow at the bottom of windows I put paper towels under the large bow in the kitchen window to prevent bugs. Front door screen had large rip. Screened in porch had holes, a screen blew in with a bad storm. We reported to maintenance, no one came to repair it. This hole let in many bugs. A loose deck board when you stepped on it near the steps down to the beach. The sticky plastic mat on the deck by the foot wash (near the steps to the driveway) was ripped, untacked in the middle and a tripping hazard, but we couldn't remove it.

With these things paid attention to going forward, this house would receive 5 stars. We will stay here again.
