Guests of every age will enjoy the bay beach. It's truly perfect for kids; the bay is calm and provides the perfect place for swimming, collecting seashells, or digging up hermit crabs. Older guests can enjoy water sports, too!

Discover the calm of Cape Shores!
This home is located in premier Cape Shores, the only local waterfront community boasting a community pool, tennis courts, & its own fishing pier - which are available to all renters.

Beach Access:
In order to maintain the integrity of the beach, there is one path for every 2 houses in Cape Shores. The path for this house is shared with the house to the left.

Cape Henlopen State Park Tips:
In addition to its beaches, nature, and recreational trails (which connect to Rehoboth Beach, DE and its boardwalk/dining/shops), key features of Cape Henlopen State Park are the WWI watchtowers. The park showcases their history and will even allow visitors to climb the tower (via interior stairs) and enjoy the expansive views.

Charming, Historic Downtown Lewes:
You can also ride your bike to Historic Lewes (less than 2 miles away) with its quaint, historic Victorian houses; many shops and galleries, and excellent restaurants. Don't miss King's Ice Cream on Second Street!


*Please note that Guests are responsible for supplying all linens (sheets, pillow cases, towels, wash cloths, dish towels, paper products, etc.) and replacing propane tank for the grill if you should run out before check-out. Fully equipped kitchen and full size Washer & Dryer on site. Extra frig on lower level too!
