Overview

Lewes House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom/2.5 Bath. Great In-town Location On Quiet Street.

Vacation in this new 3 bedroom/2.5 bath home. Enjoy the amenities of a new home, surrounded by the quaintness of old town Lewes. The house is located on a quiet street, just one block from the Historic District and Ship Carpenter Square. It is a short walk, past historical houses and beautiful gardens, to the great restaurants and quaint shops on 2nd Street, and to Canalfront Park.

The indoor spaces are comfortable, inviting and spacious, with a large open great room, private sitting room, 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths and powder room. French doors and the many windows bring in lots of light and allow breezes to flow through on days you want to skip the AC. But, your favorite spot will undoubtedly be the large screened porch overlooking the private yard and garden...perfect for morning coffee, happy hour, a good book, or relaxing with family and friends.

Once you are in Lewes, you never have to venture out on to Route 1. Relax on the beach...just an easy mile bike ride is beautiful Lewes Beach on the bay, or go an extra mile and a half beyond that to Cape Henlopen Park. Here, miles of pristine Atlantic beach stretch from the Cape to Rehoboth. Explore the many bike paths and hiking trails in the park. Kayak in the Canal or Bay. Bike the Junction and Breakwater trail to Rehoboth. Take the kids to the playground or play tennis in Canalfront Park. And, of course, dining and shopping in town. If you do want to venture out, Lewes is short drive to great outlet shopping, golf, Rehoboth Beach and other amenities.

The living spaces...

On the first floor, enjoy the openness of the living area, with a comfy sectional sofa, fireplace, flat screen TV, DVD player, stereo/CD/iPod player, and a space perfect for games or puzzles. Enjoy cooking in the spacious, well stocked kitchen with stainless appliances, granite counters and an island with seating for 3. The dining room offers seating for 8 at a large table.

Two sets of french doors bring the outside in, and open these rooms to a large screened porch overlooking the private back yard. It is perfect for relaxing or entertaining with ample seating and a dining table.

Also on the first floor is a powder room and small sitting room with another TV and DVD player. This room is great if the kids want to watch something different or the guys want to watch the game. Plus, the convertable sofa in this room can be used as an additional bed.

Bedroom & Bathrooms

The bedrooms are on the second floor, and all have new, comfortable mattresses. The large Master Suite with a cathedral ceiling, has a queen bed, TV and sitting area. The private master bath contains a shower and large vanity. The other two bedrooms share a hall bath, also with a shower and large vanity. The Sunflower Room, with a set of twins beds, has two closets and a window seat...perfect for sharing, and the Paisley Room is roomy with a queen bed.

Also on the second floor, is the laundry with extra large capacity washer and dryer, and a small sitting area to escape for some time to yourself.

A private outdoor shower is adjacent to the screened porch, perfect for a hot shower after a day at the beach.

Please Note: My hope is to make the house comfortable and inviting. Since it is new, I am still working on the final touches. Pictures will be updated as each room is completed.

About Karin Giacomini

I have been coming to the Delaware Beaches since I was in my twenties. Bike rides often brought me to Lewes during that time. With each visit, I fell in love a little more, and knew it is where I wanted to be. Lewes is quiet, quaint and historic, with great beaches and beautiful natural areas.

Mother/Daughter get away!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect setting for a beautiful fall weekend to celebrate my mother and reconnect as sisters. House was well stocked with every amenity to cook everything from brunch to fresh brewed coffee, enjoyed on the back porch wrapped in blankets. Our nights were filled with laughter, wine and memories with the fireplace taking the chill out of the air. We even had a great walk on the deserted beach on an unseasonably warm November day. The house is perfect and layed out well out for entertaining, within easy walking distance to parks and shopping and great restaurants. The owner was most responsive throughout our rental process. We will most definitely rent again soon!

Great time

  • 5 of 5

This house is really perfect for a family looking for a relaxing vacation. House is on a very quiet street with a park nearby and a short walk to all of the restaurants and shops in downtown Lewes. We were there for a lacrosse tournament and the location was perfectly situated for getting to the games easily. The kitchen was clearly stocked by someone who likes to cook and had everything necessary for making a meal, something that is often overlooked in vacation rentals. The only drawback was travel to and from Rehoboth was sometimes difficult, but we were really satisfied to stay in Lewes the bulk of the time.

Girl's getaway

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this rental is exactly as described and more. The rooms were as described, very welcoming, warm and comfortable. Most of all the whole house was completely immaculate. We were a group of 7 friends and all slept so comfortable and the living spaces were ample for just hanging out, lounging and relaxing. The beds were very comfortable and even the futon downstairs is great...that front room is very private even though it is on the first floor. This home is so tastefully decorated, you definitely feel like you are at the beach but it does not scream beach everywhere you turn. You can tell the owner took great pride in thinking of the smallest details. The kitchen is well equipped, even the knives are decent something that is often overlook for those wishing to really cook during your stay. The main great room area is much bigger than it looks, we never felt cramped. The bathrooms were all immaculate, upstairs there are 2 showers.

I just can't say enough about this rental, it was so beautiful and clean. We were more than pleased with our stay. The area was very quiet,and if the weather had been better, we could have just walked into town. It's a short drive to all the restaurants on Rt.1 and outlets.

I think this is a great rental for a girl's getaway but also families would be very comfortable here as well. I found the rental through this website but my friend was the one in contact with the owner. By all accounts, the owner the was easy to get ahold of and get information from and very pleasant to deal with. We will absolutely be returning. It was a wonderful place to catch up, relax and be completely stress free.

The Best !

  • 5 of 5

A perfect vacation in a perfect house. House is decorated so tastefully. The bonus was being on a dead end street made it quiet all the time. While we chose to eat out all the time, the kitchen was well equipped for anyone wishing to cook instead. Look forward to a return visit. This was a pleasure.

Perfect Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfectly maintained, well-stocked, and clean. The decor is tasteful - no tacky over-the-top beach decor here (because we get it - we're at the beach!). My family and I enjoyed our stay so much, and can't wait to return. The home has an open-concept floor plan, which was so convenient! We were able to cook dinner while easily keeping an eye on our kids playing in the family room. The back patio and yard are a little piece of heaven right here on earth! We enjoyed meals, snacks, morning coffee, and playtime out there. The location is perfect - walking distance to historic downtown Lewis. We made so many treasured memories in this home.

The only thing that presented a bit of a challenge was that the home has no bath tubs - only shower stalls. Luckily the kitchen sink was large enough to bathe our one-year-old. We will have to get creative with bathing our son at this home when he is 2, because we are definitely returning!
