This lovely home is only 50 yards from the water and the peaceful, clean Broadkill Beach. It has 900 sq ft of outdoor decks, including a two-story deck tower, and a shaded screened deck. At night, you can watch the moon rise over the Delaware Bay. This home is extremely private with undeveloped spaces on both sides. Dense trees shade both sides of the house.
You can fish from the surf, or walk to Plum Island State Park and fish the Broadkill River.

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!
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.
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.
This house never lets ya down. This was our 3rd time staying there and we will surely stay there again. I would recommend this house to anybody for a great relaxing stay at a quiet non crowded beach. It has everything you need for a nice stay.
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.
This is the 2nd year that we stayed in this house, and was pleasantly surprised by some changes. This time, the house looked like it was cleaned when we arrived. The air conditioners were on. There was hand soap in all of the bathrooms and kitchen. The carpets were new, and new sofas. The trash now had a nice place under the sink, instead of out in the way. Also, the kitchen table was smaller, which made it easier for all of us to sit around it. Very nice updates to this house! The only thing that I would complain about is that there is a window in the shower. I would suggest getting a curtain or something to cover it, so that one doesn't feel exposed to people being able to watch you shower. Other than that, we love Broadkill Beach. Love that it isn't a busy beach. And we plan on coming back yearly!
