Broadkill Beach house description

Right on the water this beautiful three bedroom home, with renovated kitchen, has natural light and a view of the water in every room. Enjoy large upper and lower decks and the luxury of a nearly private beach. Secluded yet twenty minutes from everything you could want to make your vacation perfect.

Romantic getaway or family fun!
This lovely home sits on a beautiful beach that feels all but private. Empty lots border each side of the house while across the street is the Prime Hook Nature Reserve with eagles, osprey and other birds of interest. You can enjoy the sun rising over the Atlantic with coffee in the morning-you’ll probably see Dolphins swimming close to shore-and cocktails in the evening as you marvel at exquisite sunsets over Prime Hook. It’s perfect for couples wanting a romantic getaway or three generational families having a yearly reunion. The beach is ideal for young children because the Bay waves are gentle and calm.

The kicker is that while you have all the privacy you want, within 10-20 minutes you can:
• Shop at designer outlets
• Play 18 holes at a challenging local golf course
• Body surf on the waves at Cape Henlopen
• Dine at great restaurants in Lewes and Rehobeth
• Take the Lewes Ferry to Cape May, New Jersey
• Enjoy the nightlife and boardwalk of Rehoboth
A quaint little neighborhood store sells sandwiches, basic supplies and fishing equipment for surf fishing right out your door and on weekends they make fabulous home-made donuts. Fifteen minutes away is the little gem of a town called Lewes (the natives pronounce it Lewis) with several great restaurants both formal and informal, antiques, art and “new-agey” chachkas.
Why not rent the place for a month while you finish your novel? We have Wi-Fi for surfing the web and cable TV and DVD players. Bring your kayak and put in on the bay or walk it across the street and take the Broadkill River all the way into Lewes for lunch. Walk the beach for miles in both directions and explore a mysterious shipwreck-you can see it with your binoculars from the deck-that baffles even the local historians as to its identity.

The house itself has three bedrooms upstairs and a king size sleep sofa in the living room on the main level. Master bedroom is spacious with vaulted ceilings, separate bath, king bed and wonderful reading porch with great views and windows that open for hearing the waves. The other two bedrooms each have queens and single beds with trundles so that you could sleep 3 or four in each. When you turn in at night crack the windows just enough to hear the waves as you fall asleep and again when you awaken the next morning.

Come once and you’ll want to return year after year. This place has it all!!!

                    I wanted to let you know what a great time we all had. The first week with our daughters and their families was a blast. The grand kids had never been to any beach before and they fell in love with everything. We took a day trip to Rehoboth beach one day to check out the boardwalk and when they saw how crowded the beach was they said "I like our beach better". So it seems like we have some beach lovers coming up in the family! Our second week was just as nice with just the four of us, not as hectic as it was with the kids, just relaxing. We have certainly made many wonderful memories with our family. We are definitely talking about coming back next year. I will be in touch with you to schedule something for 2014. Once again thank you for allowing us to spend some time at your lovely beach house.

                    We had a great time at your house. The views were magnificent, the sounds of the ocean as an alarm clock, and having coffee on the deck are memories we will cherish forever. The grandchildren running on the beach, collecting shells, and roasting hot dogs and marshmallows will also provide a great pause from winter weather. As a former high school teacher, the ecology gave me great enjoyment; even the site of a deceased sea turtle that had washed up on shore. My wife and I try to have family reunion every two years and this has, by far our best. The donuts were as delicious as advertised. Thank you so much for everything.

                    One word: Relaxation. My entire family had the most amazing week at your house. My mother, my two young boys (2 and 5), and even our teenager found something to consume their every waking minute. Despite the icky weather, the kids still found time to chase after the horseshoe crabs, swim in the bay and kayak, whilst the adults read, imbibed and enjoyed the tranquility and peace that comes with being on vacation. The only thing that would have made our stay more enjoyable … bringing along our canine companion. :( Thank you. We look forward to next summer.

                    Hands down, this was the best beachhouse experience that my family has ever had. The house was even better than advertised and comfortably accommodated the entire group. We've never been that close to the beach and the elevated back deck allowed us to spend some time back at the house while the kids spent morning, day, and into the night playing on the beach. There are multiple different rooms that provide incredible views of the sunrise/sunset and the bay itself. One particular highlight for us was the cleanliness and comfort of the living room and kitchen. Especially juxtaposed against our expectations for a typical "beachhouse" living room, this was a real treat. Extremely comfortable furniture with a very nice big screen HDTV made the evenings just as enjoyable as the days were. In summary, the house exceeded our expectations and we definitely plan to return.

                    We had a wonderful time at your home in Broadkill beach. My husband and I always vacation at the beach and we can honestly say this is the best place we have ever stayed at. The house and location couldn't have been any better. How you advertise your house is actually the way it is. Quiet, relaxing, beautiful, spacious house and rooms, etc. I can't begin to tell you how excited we were to get away and your house was just perfect. The house and location exceeded all of our expectations. Not only is the house beautiful, the layout of the rooms and the furnishings and items provided are all top notch. The location on the beach couldn't have been any better. I think at any one time the most people on the beach, including the four of was, was about 12. It doesn't get any better than that. We enjoyed the privacy that the house has to offer - you can go to many spaces to spend quiet time alone if you want - or just relax on any of the decks. We also got the chance to watch some dolphins playing in the water. I could go on and on about every single detail but I will just say that everything was excellent and we couldn't have chosen a better place to spend a relaxing time together as a family. I am already thinking about next year and planning to book your house again, maybe even for 2 weeks. My husband and I have two daughters that are both married and have children and your house would be perfect for all of us to vacation together. Again, thank you for sharing your house with others so that it can be enjoyed by many people and provide lasting memories that will never fade. I would recommend your property to anyone - I believe it fits the requirements for anyone who would like to spend some time at the beach, whether it be quiet time or lots of activities, your house is perfect!

                    This house truly is heaven on earth. This was our first experience renting a beach house and we couldn't have been more pleased with the house and location. The views from every room are absolutely beautiful. The property was immaculately maintained and the owners were extremely helpful in answering our questions. Our family enjoyed going for long walks on the gorgeous beach every evening. The calm water was perfect for my sons, ages 7 and 9, who played on the beach and in the water until they fell into bed in their cozy room every night. The kitchen is absolutely gorgeous and the views really are to die for! The whole house is filled with natural light and the sounds of peaceful waves. We enjoyed this house so much that we started talking about going back on the drive home! If you are looking for a quiet place to relax, enjoy time with family, and be awestruck by the beauty of the ocean, this is the place.

                    Again we were fortunate to spend a wonderful week in your beautiful home. Such a fantastic set-up. The kids were able to just fall out on to the beach every day. They made friends they saw every day in the waves. Although we thought we might do more, we did what we needed--sleep, relax, and restore. The kids are already asking to come back next year.

                    Our family of 8 has enjoyed your home so much this past week. We didn't go anywhere or do anything other then enjoy each others company on the beach and in the house. What an amazing place to take a break from the hustle and bustle of life and to sit back and enjoy these amazing views. Thank you!
