  • Perfect!

    "My husband, I and our husky, Bentley had a wonderful time in this truly unique home. Absolutely well maintained, fantastic area where you can walk everywhere and the oasis in the back with pool and privacy was awesome. Can't get better than this. Our friends who visited were as spellbound as we over the sun porch with lights sparkling at night. Thank you Dana!"

  • Great Cozy Beach Cottage

    "Great place to stay. The cottage was clean and well maintained. The owners made the process very easy and were very accommodating. We had 2 adults and 2 older teenage children and had plenty of room. I loved the shade from the tree on screened in front porch. It was the perfect place to spend time after a long day on the beach.This was our first stay in Dewey Beach. We were close to everything..beach, bay, stores, and restuarants. We had our bikes it took 5-10 mins to ride to Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk. The walk was less then 30 minutes. We spent time kayaking in the bay, surf fishing and of course swimming on the beautiful beach."

  • Great house, but not accessible

    "Generally, the beach house was great, but the accessibility was not. The house was listed as accessible, but none of the bathroom doorways were wide enough to accomodate a walker or wheelchair. Bathrooms didn't have grab bars either. The elevator was very tempermental. I don't think the owner realized that having an elevator is not sufficient, and is planning to reconsider listing the property as accessible. Otherwise, the house was great! Very convenient to both beach and bay!!! Crossing Route 1, even with little kids and a wheelchair, was not a problem. The location is also convenient to Bethany, Fenwick, and Ocean City by car or bike (there are bikes in the garage, but they have seen better days). The house itself is very nice! Lots of light. Lots of stairs. Lots of beach artwork. :) The master bathroom is amazing - huge shower, jacuzzi tub, double sinks! We want a bathroom like that at home!! The only catch is the people staying in the other bedroom on that floor have to walk through the master bedroom to access the bathroom. The den was a huge plus as well. We used it as the kids' bedroom. They loved it and didn't want to move to a bedroom when one became available. I would recommend adding curtains/blinds for the glass doors so you can block the light from the dining room as desired. The pool was another huge plus of this property. Beach, pool, jacuzzi. Beach, pool, jacuzzi. Loved it! A word of warning about the beach because I was a little shocked when we first arrived. The beach at this location does not have lifeguards and there are vehicles driving on the beach. At first I was rather disturbed by the vehicles, but it turned out to be more of an aesthetic issue than a safety issue. If you want a lifeguard, you can go to the State Park, which is a 2 minute drive away. Last, but not least, I challenge future visitors to complete the ladybug puzzle. My daughter pulled it out right when we arrived and it took us almost the entire week to complete it."

  • ANOTHER GREAT WEEK AT THE BEACH

    "We have just returned from our second stay at this house at Middlesex Beach. We nothing buy positive comments. The house is very clean and well-equipped. Further, the owner was responsive to our questions. Middlesex is the best beach in the Bethany Beach area. We will definitely return for a third stay when our schedule permits."

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.
