About the property

Lovely, updated home, with three sun-drenched decks: one downstairs off the dining room perfect for grilling out, another upstairs off the master bed perfect for watching the sunrise or breakfast al fresco, and another off the second upstairs bedroom which is great for watching the sunset over Prime Hook Reserve. The living has a huge bay window for watching the beach and bay directly in front off the house. Or hop off the deck directly to the beach and wade in the water of the calm and shallow Delaware bay - great and safe for small kids and pets.

The house has three bedrooms. Master Bedroom (sleeps two) has one queen bed and a half bath, with a great view of the bay. The Second Bedroom (sleeps two) upstairs has two twin beds that can convert to one queen bed. There is a full bath between the Master and Second Bedrooms. Third Bedroom (sleeps two), on the first floor next to a full bath and the living room, has two twin beds that also convert to a queen bed. The Sun Room has a pullout sofa bed that could also sleep two, but no shades in the Sun Room, so this would only be for early-risers.

Kitchen has all of the amenities - use what you need in terms of condiments and seasonings - and feel free to replenish or add some as well. Dining Room just next to the Kitchen and Living Room seats eight.

The Garage easily fits two cars and the driveway can fit up to six cars. There are also beach chairs, beach chaise lounges, beach umbrellas, and sundry beach games/toys in the garage.

Towels, beach towels, and sheets are all provided. Just bring your own personal items and your bathing suit!

Well behaved dogs and cats are welcome with an additional fee of $100 - just let us know.

*No events are permitted* - this includes parties, weddings, receptions, etc.; basically any event that would have more than the maximum number of individuals allowed in the rental, which is 8.

About Dave Beard-Sackett

Our names are Eric and Dave Beard-Sackett. We bought this lovely bay front property as a get-away on weekends, summer vacations, and perhaps eventually retirement. Well, we had two beautfoul baby boys join the family in 2016 and have not been able to leave Baltimore to get out to the beach as much as we used to, so we thought we should rent it out and let others enjoy the beauty and serenity of Broadkill Beach.

Dave Beard-Sackett purchased this house in 2012

Why Dave Beard-Sackett chose Broadkill Beach

We bought this property first because it was waterfront, nicely updated, and perfectly situated on the curve of Broadkill Beach. Some call it Malibu East. That may be a bit pushing it, but it is a little slice of paradise - great for families too since the bay water is so shallow and no strong undertow.

Wonderful House and Hosts

  • 5 of 5

If you’re looking for a quiet, beautiful setting for your vacation this is the perfect place! The house has a wonderful floor plan with amazing views! The deck and sunroom are both amazing. The kitchen is well equipped with EVERYTHING you need! We were so impressed with Dave and Eric and their desire to make sure we were comfortable and well taken care of. They were always available for any and all questions. If you’re looking for more action, Rehoboth Beach is 25 minutes away! There are many great restaurants in Lewes and Rehoboth. For shoppers, there are outlets everywhere. For over 30 years we’ve gone to Carolina Beaches and wanted to do something different. We’ll visit Delaware again and hopefully have better weather next time. We look forward to staying at this wonderful house again!

Movie set or beach house?

  • 5 of 5

So many beach houses we have stayed in for the last 35 years are forgettable. I can't wait to get back to this house. To sit on the sun porch at night and read or on the chaise in the master bedroom. Simple, clean and neat it feels like home from the comfortable furniture to a kitchen that is as equipped as mine! The first place I've visited that actually had kosher salt. Our family stepped in the door and immediately felt at home. We really enjoyed our stay and hope that it is available the next time that we beach.

We loved the home!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here for the week was wonderful! The house had everything we needed. It was great that we got to bring our dog on vacation with us this year. The large deck on the back had two locked gates so we didn't have to worry about keeping her on a leash while on the deck. Plus the beach was very private. We took our dog for walks every morning on the beach around 7 a.m. and no one was on the beach so she could run free. She loved it! Really, we only saw a couple of families on the entire beach the whole week. If you like privacy, want to stay away from the crowds and have a place where your dog can run free, this is the place! We did take a half-day trip to Rehoboth Beach to check out the shops on the boardwalk. It was only a 30 minute drive. The Broadkill General Store is right down the street. It's a small store but it has most necessities. Plus you can get breakfast and lunch sandwiches there and ice cream too! Oh and Tuesdays they have the best Cinnabuns (you just have to call ahead to order to make sure you get some) We were here in the middle of July. If you come around that time, my only suggestion would be to bring some Badger citronella spray or something similar to keep the pesky biting flies away. There were only a couple days where they were bothersome though. The entire week was sunny everyday and most days had a nice breeze. Couldn't ask for better weather! We will definitely be back! Thanks Dave for sharing your home with us! I really didn't want to leave. :-)

Inviting and Welcoming Home to Enjoy Time with Family

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed a relaxing family vacation! The house was clean, well-appointed, comfortable, and had all that we needed to be able to kick back and savor time with each other. The beach views were breathtaking and the gated deck was perfect for an active toddler. We also loved the firework display from the deck and had an amazing display seen across the bay in Lewes, Cape May and one other location; the most fun had was seeing the awesome displays from neighbors and the fun cheering with all made you feel a part of the community. Thank you Dave for your warm wishes and the opportunity to enjoy your home, we will definitely return in the future.

Wonderful beach house

  • 5 of 5

We had never been to Broadkill Beach before and are we glad we tried it. The house is spotless and the best equipped home I have ever rented. Dave was very helpful in making our stay very comfortable. The beach is right out back and not at all crowded. My husband was able to kayak more than he had all last summer. Dogs are allowed on the beach and the low level of the water makes it easy for little children to enjoy the water too. The top deck is a great spot for evening drink and the breeze on the sunporch is delightful all day. We definitely recommend this beautiful home.
