Cottage (and owner) save the day
"I found this place after a reservation I'd made at a nearby beach fell through on a Thursday morning for a Friday arrival. I contacted this owner on Thursday afternoon and he called me back within 30 minutes to let me know the place was available. The owner was so easy to work with and the place was just perfect for our trip (a couple and one dog). We loved the breeze on the front porch greeting us on our arrival Friday afternoon, the short walk to Lewes Beach, wading through the tidal pools on the beach, and finding shells and live conch along the way. We fished at the inlet and took short trips to other nearby beaches and fishing spots. The interior is truly reminiscent of old beach cottages I visited on the coast of North Carolina and the town of Lewes is just as charming as described. I would highly recommend this property to anyone for both the idyllic setting and the ease of working with the owner."

"This was our first vacation to the Deleware coast, and our first vacation with two young kids. My husband was never a fan of vacationing to a beach (although it's probably been 20 years since he's been there), but after our vacation in Lewes, he's sold; we had a fabulous time staying at the "Turtle Shack" and visiting the town of Lewes. Our vacationers consisted of 7 adults and 2 children (1 yr and 3 yrs) and we had ample room to enjoy our time together and apart. Our boys loved the upstairs area, space for rolling around, games, and bunk beds. We mostly gravitated to spending time in the dining area with our family, playing games and enjoying each others' company. The house was very comfortable and inviting, and the proximity to the beach was perfect. We are definitely considering staying again next year if we return to Lewes. Thank you for sharing your home with us!"

"My family of three (couple + 5 year old) spent a week at Laughing Gull with a family of four (couple + 5 and 8 year olds). It was perfect! In fact, we ended up having an extra bedroom since the little girls wanted to share the twin room, but when one caught a cough mid-week, we could easily separate them. Two king master suites with massive bathrooms, luxurious tubs, and comfortable beds were the refuge of the parents. The kid rooms were all on the floor below the main living area, so it was easy to put the kids to bed and stay up watching movies, playing games or just talking without worrying about waking the kids. Great layout for multiple families! We could have had an extra couple with us and it would not have felt crowded at all. Easy and safe walk to the beach for little ones - no whining about having to walk too far! Ate almost every meal on the huge SCREENED deck (there are two) just off the kitchen/living area. Delightful. Parking easy and plentiful. We walked to town several times, which was fun and a nice break from getting in and out of the car. The "beach closet" was well stocked with chairs, toys, umbrellas to add to our own stuff - so we wanted for nothing at the beach. Outdoor shower off the back deck was so convenient that the kids were always clean! The kitchen was a pleasure to cook in, very well stocked, great grill out on the deck - basically everything you'd want or need. Plenty of together space for a large group either for a meal or just in the living area, but easy to retreat to one of the decks or bedrooms for a break from the crowd. So the perfect location, plus a wonderfully designed and outfitted house can only be made better by: the owners. Helen and Steve are great. Helen was in touch from the beginning via e-mail. The materials she sent about the house were elegant, clear, and extremely helpful. It was such a relaxing week at the beach partially because the months leading up to it were such a pleasure dealing with Helen. All was as advertised - and then some. Helen thought of everything and was so kind and attentive. I cannot recommend Helen or the itself house highly enough - especially for anyone looking for a truly relaxing beach vacation with every comfort provided! We will definitely be returning!"

"We travelled from England to sample the delights of Delaware and were not disappointed. We had a great time in a very well equipped, pleasant and relaxing condo. Owner communicated very quickly and was extremely organised. The village of five points had everything you needed - pool, restaurants, supermarket and drug store all within a short walk. Beaches 10 minute drive. A great place."
