Recent Delaware reviews

  • Close to the beach, quiet secluded neighborhood

    "We had nine adults, one teen, and four preschoolers. The house is an older one but very comfortable and just right if your family mix is like ours. The boardwalk attractions in downtown Rehoboth are only a half mile walk away, but the beach is not crowded at all where the house is. The only negative is that parking on the property can be tight if your vehicles are larger. Street parking requires a pass. The owners will provide one for you and additional ones can be purchased from the city. However, you will have to park overnight on a nearby cross street. Parking not allowed on Queen St. from midnight to 6:00 am. The owners are very easy to deal with."

  • Miss it already - Home away from home!

    "We had such a great weekend and can't wait to come back! "A Shore Thing" fit our group of 5 families, 3 of them with young kids, very well. We were all very comfortable and immediately felt at home in this wonderful vacation property. It is portrayed perfectly in the photos, is very clean and professionally (tastefully) decorated without being cluttered. The kitchen is fully stocked with utensils for cooking, grilling, blending drinks, and entertaining. My husband and I were in the 'Starfish Room', and it was incredibly comfortable. I wish I could take the bed home with us. Sleeping in each morning was amazing, even in a house with toddlers running around early in the morning. I can tell a lot of care was put in to decorating and making it comfortable. I appreciate that there is a ceiling fan just about everywhere one can be, and all of the switch labels are conveniently labeled. We plugged ipods/ smartphones into the house sound system that played music out the ceiling speakers on the main level, also enjoying movie nights and game nights at "home". We found the location to be great, just outside of the Ocean City chaos in a nice quite neighborhood. We walked (almost every day) to Harpoon Hannah's, which offered both fun day-time meals for the family with live music, and also a late-night bar scene with DJ, boats pulling up to the dock, and dancing on the lit up dock! A lot of fun, and so close. There is another bar/restaurant even closer just across the main road, but I forget the name as we didn't make it there once we got stuck on Harpoon Hannah's. Also close were the Crabcake Factory where we had an excellent bloody mary brunch on the water, and we also walked the just-under-a-mile walk to the beach each day, which made more sense than trying to find parking during high-season. And let's be honest, we could all use the walk with all of the food and beverages we were enjoying! Thank you, Ben, for such a great experience. We will look to you again when we have a chance to make it back to the Eastern Shore!"

  • Our own piece of paradise!

    "We absolutely loved our stay at Ocean Spirit. Traveling with 3 kids 5 and under, plus the grandparents, meant space and proximity to the beach were priority. We had more than enough room with the 5 bedrooms, 3 decks, and the sand as our back yard. I hope this is the first of many, many stays at Ocean Spirit!"

  • Wonderful!

    "I rented this home for my daughter's bridal shower/bachelorette weekend. It was better than expected. The home is beautiful and lovingly maintained. The downstairs air conditioning unit was broken however I wasn't even aware the house had air, my fault. It worked great upstairs and the 13 girls were very comfortable. They truly enjoyed the screened porch. It is so convenient to everything Rehoboth and Dewey have to offer. The parking is an added plus. The owner is extremely friendly and went out of her way to make sure everything was in order. "Check in and out" was convenient and easy. Will definitely get a group together so we can stay here again in the future. Truly a gem. I highly recommend this property!"

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.

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.

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.
