This lovely open concept 3 bedroom/2 bathroom PLUS LOFT is available for the first time on the Slaughter Beach rental market. This home was custom built and has tons of room for family and a fenced in yard for Fido (very rare in Slaughter Beach!). Panoramic views of the Delaware Bay towards the EAST and views of the Milford Neck Wildlife Area, the Mispillion River, Cedar Creek and Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge to the West. Upper and lower decks on front, back and side of house! Amazing Sunsets and Sunrises everywhere you look! Home is directly across the street from the north end of Slaughter Beach but has access to a public path to the beach along the Delaware Bay and an unobstructed view of the Bay. Slaughter Beach is a great exploring beach if you are a outdoor, eco-minded family. There are no restrictions on dogs on the beach (except leashes!) Fido can accompany you on your beach walks everywhere you go! You can also ride bicycles for miles on flat, almost deserted roads with beautiful rural scenery.
You can walk for miles on the beach south - all the way to Lewes! You have the beach virtually to yourself - sea shells are plentiful in addition to sea life and shore birds. We are a horseshoe crab sanctuary as well - they lay eggs on the beach in mid-May of each year. We are a bird watchers dream! The beach directly in front of the home is NOT a groomed beach and at certain times of the year it has a muddy or rocky bottom (depending on what is happening in the Susquehanna River far north of us) so swimming is not ideal. The tide does go very far out at certain moon cycles and you can walk all the way to the Jetty at the mouth of the Mispillion River and dig for whelks. We do recommend swimming at the Slaughter Beach pavilion (just a short distance down the road) or at Lewes beach or any of the ocean beaches in Rehoboth or Dewey which are less than 30 minutes away. This location is ideal for kayaking, sailing and canoeing. You can put any small self-carry boat directly in the water in front of the house, or launch any larger boat at the public launch a short distance away.
Slaughter Beach is approximately 15 minutes from Dogfish Head Brewery, 20 minutes north of Lewes, DE and 25 minutes north of Rehoboth Beach, DE and 30 minutes South of Dover, DE. Enjoy the privacy and solitude of ungroomed beaches while being just a short distance from all of the best attractions of Sussex and Kent Counties in Delaware.

*Update- June 6, 2018 - we have been notified that the lot across the street has been sold - do not know the new owner and do not know when or if construction will start. We still have public access to the Bay two houses down the street*
*Update - August 1, 2018 - framing has begun on the lot across the street. We still have a nice view of the Bay - just not as expansive as before.
