  • Luxury at the beach!

    "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!"

  • Great Neighborhood!

    "Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your home in Bethany Beach. The house was perfect for us and our two little dogs. We just loved the neighborhood and enjoyed taking walks in the morning and evening. There was tree, along the canal, full of blue herons that I visited daily as they were so fun to watch. The house was close to everything and we had easy access to a nearby grocery store, the beach, and many local businesses. Thanks again for offering the perfect place for us to unwind. We will be back!"

  • great vacation!!!

    "This property was absolutely exceptional in every respect. We had a party of 6 with two teenagers and two retirees. The home was so large that we seemed to lose people at every turn. It was beautiful and had everything you would ever need during your stay. It was easily accessible with a bus stop to take you to the beach right outside the front door. With 4 different areas to relax outside on the property and the pools and gym well within easy walking distance, one could not ask for anything else. Having a bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived was yet another example of exceptional service by our host Mary, the owner. All-in-all great experience."

Delaware Travel Tips

Getting to Delaware Vacation Rentals

Delaware is conveniently located near four of the major eastern metropolitan areas. It is within an easy day's drive from Philadelphia, Washington DC, Baltimore and even New York City. There are good rail and road links to Delaware which provide more that one option for traveling to your vacation destination. The Delaware Memorial Bridge is a twin-span suspension bridge that crosses the Delaware River into New Jersey. There are several ferries providing access to Delaware. The Cape May Lewes Ferry Crosses the mouth of Delaware Bay from Cape May in New Jersey to Lewes in Delaware. The Three Forts Ferry crosses from Delaware City to Fort Delaware and Fort Mott which are both located in New Jersey. A smaller cable ferry known as the Woodland Ferry crosses the Nanticoke River just south of Seaford.

Many people who visit like to have a car to explore the coastline. If you are traveling from further afield, you can easily rent a car upon arrival at the airport. Delaware is the only state that does not have its own commercial airport. But given its proximity to the major cities, this is not really an issue. For international travelers, you can fly into JFK or Newark airports near New York City. Alternatively, you can consider flights into Washington Dulles International Airport or Philadelphia International Airport. Both of these airports have frequent commercial flight connections.

Attractions and Activities at Delaware Beach Rentals

Fishing and boating are two of the favorite vacation pastimes in Delaware. If you don't have your own boat, you can inquire about renting or chartering one from one of the local marinas and enjoy a day out on the water. Delaware has a bike route that provides one of the best ways to explore the state. The route is relatively flat which makes for easy cycling and you can cover quite a distance in a day. Stop off at historic lighthouses or enjoy a picnic on one of the beaches. As a summer vacation destination, most visitors to Delaware spend their vacation time on the beaches. There are many resort towns where you can eat out and even enjoy a show in the evenings. Many of the vacation homes are located on the coast and have spectacular views out over the Atlantic Ocean. Enjoy long leisurely strolls along the beach or watch the sunrise from the front porch of your rental.
