- Broadkill Beach is a rare find on the eastern seaboard, its gentle waves are ideal for children, kayaking and swimming. It is a residential beach with one country store located ¼ mile walk from the house. It’s isolated from the commercial development of the Delaware coast by the Primehook National Wildlife Refuge, yet it’s only 10-15 miles from all the shops, restaurants, bars and boardwalk of Rehoboth, Lewes, and Dewey. The best of both worlds are found in Broadkill, a quiet beach to enjoy the solitude of the water, friends, and family, yet minutes from the attractions.

                    Our family gathered from Virginia, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey for a family Thanksgiving. We cooked a full Thanksgiving meal without a problem thanks to the well-stocked kitchen. The living area was great for watching football, playing games, and keeping an eye on the kids. Bedrooms were big and comfortable, and the house was spotless when we arrived. The beach is a block away and the house is a quick and easy drive from Rt 1 and all the amenities of Lewes and Rehoboth.

                    We just returned from a lovely long fall weekend at "Chill a While" at Broadkill Beach. This was our second time staying at Chill a While and we will definitely be back -- the owners have thought of everything to make it a comfortable place to stay, and they are so friendly, thoughtful and accommodating. We loved quiet, laid-back Broadkill Beach in the summer and our fall trip did not disappoint -- it was the perfect time to explore Prime Hook, Beach Plum and Cape Henlopen State Parks, ride bikes along Bayshore Drive, and take walks/collect shells on the beach. We were even lucky enough to have a full moon on Saturday night -- we built a cozy fire on the beach and kicked back!

                    "Chill a While!" served as the location for my annual get together with my college buddies. It was a great location because we're all mainly in the mid-Atlantic region (e.g., Charlottesville, Philadelphia, D.C., Virginia Beach) and wasn't a far drive for any of us. We had a bonfire on the beach one evening, which was delightful. Spent both days of the weekend out on the beach, swimming and playing spots. Since the place is so close (a block) from the beach, it was easy to come and go as we pleased. The house was well-maintained and really nicely furnished. While some beach houses can feel cheesy with all the beach kitsch, this one did not: it was thoughtfully and simply decorated with a modern, comfortable feel. I'd highly recommend the place to anyone.

                    We have vacationed every summer at the beach with now four generations of our family. We always look to be close to the beach, but loose peace. This year we had the beach and peace with our stay at "Chill a While." Topping it off, was a summer place that was completely as advertised, and more. We had all the room we needed for 10 members of our family. The photos didn't do the place justice. Thanks for everything.

                    The property was exactly as described. The kitchen was outfitted for all kinds of cooking and very clean. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the linens better than at home! The beach was close and the neighbors were friendly. We had planned on eating out many of the evenings, but with a grill and williing cooks, we stayed in and brought fresh food in each night to prepare. We golfed one day while the ladies went shopping, but the buld of the time was spent relaxing on the beach and enclosed proch. The young ones had to be connected to work with their laptops and were happy with the speed. We are a board game playing family and the ones on site were great. The dining room table was the center of operations each day and plans were made while enjoying great food. We are planning on returning in 2012 for another great week before heading to Virginia for one of the kids to get married. When we retire, we would like to book the house and bring in our retired friends for a great get together. We really enjoyed the laid back quiet location compared to the beach locations down south.

                    We invited our four children and their families to spend time with us at this beautiful, well kept secluded beach house that borders the Prime Hook Wildlife Refuge. It was everything as advertised: beautifully decorated, immaculately clean throughout, half a block to the beach which was never crowded, golf course within 5 miles, and board walk action at Rehoboth within 10 miles. A great family vacation spot. No noise, a quiet street to walk, run or bike with minimal traffic. If you want to get away to spend quiet, quality time with your family and recharge your battery, this is the place. We can't say enough good things about it, other than it was great, great, great!!! We just hope that it doesn't become too popular so we can book the week we'll want in the future.

                    Thanks kindly to all of our guests who have taken the time to submit a review, and for all of your positive feedback! We too enjoy spending quiet relaxing days at the beach house, and thanks to our guests for noting that we've done our best to make it comfortable and luxury. I'd also like you to note that we were not aware that our current housekeeper has been leaving the house less than spotless, and we are taking immediate steps to ensure that the cleanliness of the house matches the quality service that we provide!

                    Our motley crew included naturists, beachcombers, & those not fond of sand. And, we all had a great time! Check-in process is simple & easy. The home is lovely, and the perfect distance from the beach/bay, and close to Rehoboth. The home appears to be well cared for, but was not super-clean upon our arrival. Previous guests must have left a mess, apparently more than the housekeeper could manage during the 5-hour turnover time. Everything was neat, but bathroom floors had quite a bit of hair, and just about every surface in the kitchen was sticky. Half-eaten jar of salsa in the fridge, and petrifiied peas and bread all over the counters were a few of the low-lights. The rest of the common areas were clean and tidy. After cleaning up the previous guests' mess we were able to enjoy the many, many assets of this property (listed, in no particular order): -roomy floor plan -fantastic crow's nest -friendly and responsive owners -linens! nice sheets with extra sets, plenty of bath and beach towels, no need to bring a thing! -location. best in Broadkill! -garage. HUGE. storage area for your rafts, bikes, and all the other things you don't want to tote inside. -private outdoor shower -comfortable beds (though the masters are up HIGH) -HUGE walk-in closet in second floor master. we used it as our 2-year-old's bedroom. perfect! -wifi -TWO screened porches. you'll love them after sunset! -three nice bathrooms, plus a powder room -did i mention location??? -kayaks. awesome! -sand toys, floats, tubes, bikes, and even a shovel. pack light! chill-a-while has got you covered. -across-the-street neighbors are more than happy to chat, you can glean some good information from them. -Broadkill beach! YES, you will get bitten by mosquitoes and other flying nasties while you're here. But the beach is a real charmer, and well worth the itching! Check weather reports for wind speed & direction, a good breeze off the bay keeps the buggies away :) bring your bug spray, and enjoy! a few caveats: -noise travels between rooms/floors. bring fans or other white noise for light sleepers. -one tv. not a problem for us, but might be for some. -garbage. goes on monday. which means looking at full, smelly cans for two days. -bikes are suitable for two adults and one older child (say, age 10+). that third bike was an awkward size for our group, glad we brought a couple of our own. -beach is stony. bring surf shoes

                    4 adults, 2 toddler and an infant spent the week at the Chill a While and it was PERFECT. We've rented other beach houses before but things that made this place the best yet are: 1) Owners were helpful, responsive and overall really really nice 2) House is fully stocked with almost EVERYTHING you might need. Linens, paper products, pantry items (spices, oil etc), bikes and kayaks, beach chairs... This helps immensely with travel especially with children. 3) The home was impeccable and clean and truly a wonderful place. The beach is barely a walk away and the views are spectacular. 4) Rehobath, Bethany, Cape May and Lewes are literally right down the road. I can't wait to book vacation next year. BEST EVER!

                    Chill a While was exactly as represented on this website, it was beautiful! The owners were completely responsive to any questions we had and the neighbors were wonderful and helpful. Our family and friends enjoyed our time together as we prepared to celebrate our son's wedding in Dover. Everything we needed was found in the house, so we barely needed more than food! We did not have to deal with the stress of beach traffic, but everything we wanted was easily available. We were blessed to stay there. Semper Fi!
