About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 12)

The Yellow Submarine is the perfect house at the beach!

The first level is an open floor plan (L shaped couch, TV/DVD, dining table, kitchen island, full kitchen) Best of all...there is a LARGE screened-in porch...a perfect 'room' at the beach!

Three of the four bedrooms are on the first level. Two share a half bathroom (small rooms with one double bed each) and the third one (king) has its own half bath and sliding glass doors to the front porch.

The second level has a full bath, a large bedroom (two queen beds) and a loft which doubles as a living room (TV) during the day and '5th sleeping area' at night (queen sleep sofa)

The house also has a roll-a-way cot (single) for an extra sleeping spot.

The roof top balcony/deck is a perfect place for the kids to hang out or for anyone to enjoy some outdoor SUN time.

Enjoy wireless internet throughout the house!

Outside. . enjoy the 1/2 acre yard, screened-in porch, picnic table, corn hole, grill and ENCLOSED OUTDOOR SHOWER!

Renting The Yellow Submarine gives you full rights to the PRIVATE BEACH for your entire stay. Middlesex Beach is a guarded beach . . and only those with passes may be on the beach (The Yellow Submarine comes with beach passes!!) There will be no problem finding a prime spot in the sand.

The Yellow Submarine is 2 blocks from the beach and you can walk it in approx. 5 minutes. You also have the option of driving and using the parking passes that we provide. Since only those with passes are allowed in. . . there is NEVER a problem finding a parking spot.


The privacy extends to the house and yard too! You will be nestled on a dead end street. . among the trees(for privacy). . . cars do not park on the side of the road. . you can take walks, ride bikes. . . it's nothing like any other place at the beach!! (yet you are steps away from all that the beach offers!! (mini golf, boardwalks, restaurants, stores, etc))

In less than two minutes you can walk to Subway, McDonald's, Bethany Seafood, the dollar store, a chinese restaurant and more!

About The Owner

The Yellow Submarine is owned by Steve & Carol Paul (we also own (and rent) The Yacht-Sea Beach House (8 Errett Rd)

The Owner purchased this house in 2012

Why The Owner chose Delaware

We purchased The Yellow Submarine after years of loving Middlesex Beach! We have been vacationing (renters ourselves!) in Middlesex since 1987. Once we found the private beach, we couldn't go to any other beach! Our children have grown up being allowed to play frisbee, surf and run freely on an uncrowded beach. We also came to love the privacy offered from the 1/2 acre yards in Middlesex. We have tried to make The Yellow Submarine a Renter's Dream by adding all the things we wished were at the numerous houses we rented over the years (and by copying the things we LOVED at those other rentals too) Middlesex Beach is our favorite place in the world!

What makes this house unique

My husband's favorite thing is that we park our cars when we arrive and get the bikes out. Our kids love to bike to the end of the street and buy ice cream after dinner. They also love biking to the boardwalk. Our younger nieces and nephews love the dead end street where they are allowed to bike and play ball in the middle of the road! We love that we can walk and bike up to Summer Salt's Bar & Grille for wings and drinks! My parents love the fine dining in the area (Blue Coast, Parkway, Sedona's & More). The kids love biking to Candy Kitchen, the Dollar Store, Chinese food and the beach supply store. Mostly we love that, in Middlesex, we are secluded! Every night we fix our beach drinks, turn on the tiki lights on the porch and press play on the beach CD...then sit back, relax and smile!

Wonderful stay at Yellow Submarine

We very much enjoyed our stay at Yellow Submarine. The layout of the house worked perfectly for all our activities and we really appreciated the screened-in porch!

Loved the private beach access!

  • 4 of 5

Lots of off street parking; lovely screened in porch with awesome colored lights; two of the three downstairs bedrooms were quite small but adequate; upstairs loft and bedroom/bath were great but the steps are dangerous for small children; appliances were in good condition except for the toaster. All in all we enjoyed our 1st visit to the Yellow Submarine!

overpriced lemon

  • 2 of 5

We've previously rented thru VRBO in this neighborhood. Our previous experiences were great. This one was not. This house was not well cleaned or well stocked. The side door was open when we arrived. Sand was on most surfaces when we entered the home: tables, furniture, rugs and beds. We soon discovered make up and hair on various surfaces throughout the house, dirty linens, ripped pillows, dirty grill items and items in the washing machine from the cleaners. The house smelled of cat urine and we discovered a stained rug in the main bathroom. There were also cobwebs and layers of dust on some surfaces(we took pictures to document, it was very noticeable). The house was hard to ventilate to remove the urine and musty odors as all of the downstairs windows are sealed and the master bedroom sliding door has no screen. To Carol's credit she was responsive to our call and texts. She sent a maintenance man over and the cleaning crew back(this was after we had cleaned what we could..) with flowers and a bottle of wine. She offered a late check out which we took advantage of however, the maintenance man arrived early to clean the grill and the cleaners arrived early. All in all we were lucky to have great weather and spent most of the time outdoors, on the deck or on the screened porch. We don't recommend this rental at this price and we won't be returning.

Owner's Response: We were so sorry that Holly and her family were disappointed from the start :( We want everything to be perfect for our renters! I immediately sent the cleaners back AND refunded the cleaning fee to Holly on top of that. I offered an extra late check-out to make up for the time Holly spent cleaning after her arrival. Two different families that rented the weeks prior to Holly have already re-booked their weeks for next year... so I am confident that what Holly found is not the norm at the Yellow Submarine! We never received any documented PICS, so unfortunately I never saw how bad it was, but we have already installed a screen on the master bedroom sliding door (what a good idea!) and have ordered new windows cranks so that the main level windows will be able to open (when we purchased the house, the windows were sealed shut .. I guess for better insulation/AC??) I am glad the weather was nice for Holly and her family! The screened in porch (and Monkey Bar) at The Yellow Submarine is an awesome place to be!! The private Middlesex Beach isn't bad either :)
