"This was our first time renting a home in Lewes, Delaware and it resulted in one of our best family vacations ever! My husband and I, as well as our children and grandchildren, spent one glorious week in this beautiful home located within the “Villages of Five Points” along Savannah Road. It was so close to restaurants, the Midway Movies, playgrounds, downtown Historic Lewes and its beaches, Cape Henlopen State Park, the Rehoboth boardwalk, outlet shopping, sightseeing, etc.
The home looked exactly as it did online. The house was clean and very comfortably furnished, kind of like a cross between Pier 1 and Crate & Barrel. There was so much room to move around without anyone being on top of one another. We especially enjoyed the first floor master bedroom suite, tucked away from the rest of the family for privacy. The three large upstairs bedrooms accommodated two queen size beds and two twin beds, just what we had looked for online when booking this place through VRBO. And we were pleasantly surprised to see that it had 2-zone air-conditioning, which was a real plus for us! The kitchen was fully stocked for cooking inside or outside on the gas grill, which we did for two nights during our stay.
Our favorite part of the home was the back deck. We enjoyed the lounge furniture, as well as the outdoor table and chairs. It was such a nice, quiet neighborhood…no noise from other neighbors or traffic. My husband and I really loved having morning breakfast and conversation out on the deck each day!
The owners provided beach chairs, beach towels, bed linens, bath towels, etc., which many homes and condos do not provide. They also provided a list of recommended restaurants and activities, along with lots of brochures of local places to visit.
The grand-kids loved the nearby beaches, particularly the one in Lewes! Our son enjoyed his early morning jog each day along the development’s running path, and all of us enjoyed the swimming pool, which was only one block away. Also, our adult children spent many an evening at the Greene Turtle while we babysat their kids. Lastly, all of us enjoyed watching the Orioles beat Toronto and St. Louis on the family room’s flat screen TV. Go O’s!!!
What a lovely home in a beautiful community!! We definitely hope to return to this beach house next summer and continue to make many more family memories. Thanks so much Kate and Jarek for renting your home to us."
