- 5 minute drive to 2 different beaches; plus 20-30 min drive to many more beaches, in less than 10 miles heading south.

- You can walk to the pool, coffee shop, grocery store, and restaurants.

- More spacious than a hotel room, plus the kitchen enables you to prepare and eat your meals without having to spend money to dine out.

- We have everything you need: beach chairs. umbrella, washer & dryer, microwave, dishwasher, pots/pan, utensils, vacuum, a screened porch for relaxing with your favorite beverage.

- Every year we upgrade or replace something in the unit, paint, steam clean carpets, and complete general maintenance to keep our condominium unit welcoming for all our guests.

- What you see is what you get with our rates; there are no additional add-on fees. It's all included in our flat rate: cleaning, pool and tennis access, wifi access, etc. There are NO additional taxes, cleaning, administrative fees because we wouldn't want that either (when booked directly with the owner).

- Once you've stayed with us, you are likely to become just like our repeat guests, who come year after year. We appreciate loyalty and offer our frequent guests the convenience of booking their vacation week before other potential guests.

~~~~~~~~~~ PAYMENT OPTIONS ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

About Sonya Edwards

Hello, a bit about us... My husband and I are the property owners of "Beach Escapes" condo unit. We have vacationed in Lewes since childhood, watching it grow from a sleepy fishing village to a modern vacation town, and just love it's quaint, friendly appeal.

We decided to purchase the condo as a rental because of the location and wonderful amenities offered in the community. We manage this unit ourselves, without using a property manager. We like to treat our guests as we would like to be treated and hope you find our personal touches and attention to detail superior to that of an organization, and without all of the fees of rental agencies.

We call our condominium unit 'Beach Escapes' because we want it to be your escape from typical boring hotels, overbearing B&B, or an expensive beach house. We decided on charging one flat rate, because we don’t like hidden costs or additional fees. And because we are neat-freaks, we are a bit adamant with our cleaning crew.

We try to make our property warm and inviting for all our guests. Our unit should have everything you need to make your vacation wonderful. The full kitchen makes it convenient for you quickly prepare breakfast or lunch and save money by not having to eat-out every meal.

We hope you enjoy your stay with us and want to return, like many of our other guests.

ethic disclosure: I am a licensed Relator in Delaware.

Sonya Edwards purchased this condo in 2006

Why Sonya Edwards chose Lewes

The Villages of Five Points is a great location in Lewes. It has just about everything you need in one complex - 2 community pools, tennis courts, walking paths, stores, grocery, bank, restaurants, coffee, and more. Best of all it is EAST of Rt.1, so you are away from the busy highway, unless you want to venture out. It is located about 2-3 miles from 2 fabulous beaches - Lewes (the Delaware Bay) and Cape Henlopen State Park (Atlantic Ocean). There are more beaches further south, if you want to explore.

Lewes is one of the northern beach towns in Delaware. It tends to be more quiet and reserved, with an historical flair. There is plenty to do around town with lots of museums, fabulous restaraunts, great fishing, yet it is relaxing without all the hustle and bustle of more active beach towns. Park, walk, or bike, Lewes truely is a gem.

What makes this condo unique

One of the most common compliments we receive is how relaxed and peaceful our guests feel. Most love the location and convenience of having things close, but not over whelming. Many comment on the upkeep of the unit as we strive to keep it clean and comfortable. Some guests go as far as saying this was their best vacation ever (wow!).

We hope you find it just as pleasant and perhaps one of your best vacations too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What the owners have created is far better-than-home-away-from-home. The condo unit is clean, uncluttered, simple, easy to care for, beautiful, light, relaxing, comfortable space conducive to meaningful family time. My children re-discovered chess/checkers on our one rainy day (actually it was a good break fro the beach) and we all enjoyed many other card games and watched DVDs the owner provided. The town of Lewes was just as I had hoped, more toned-down than the Rehoboth chaos - just quaint, interesting, and lovely.

"Beach Escapes" has been just that for us, better than a vacation -- an escape.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying at Beach Escapes. We love it. The condo is clean, spacious, and beautifully decorated. We loved sitting on the balcony overlooking the pond. We like being able to walk to restaurants, and having a grocery store at the entrance of the complex is very convenient. Sonya is very easy and pleasant to work with. My kids loved the basket of snacks that was provided when we arrived. Having linens available was very nice as well. Some of our favorite things to do were Cape Henelopen, Rehoboth Beach, and Funland. Great stay. Will definitely be back next year!

First experience with renting a condo

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 rented from June 4-11 and we had a great time! Before this, we had always stayed in hotels. Now that our kids are getting bigger we need more room. Sonya made us feel right at home! The condo was clean and comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook all of our meals. We loved the washer and dryer being right inside the condo. The neighbors were friendly and the grounds were very well maintained. We went to Lewes Beach and Cape Henlopen State Park almost everyday. The beaches were clean and not crowded at all. In the evening we swam in the pool at the condo and relaxed on the screened in porch. It was so peaceful. We did go to the boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach once. We parked at the bus terminal and rode the bus to the boardwalk. It was much easier than worrying about paying the meters every hour. We look forward to coming back to DE in the future and staying here again.

Best condo we've ever rented

  • 5 of 5

Rented from July 4-11 and had a fabulous time. Condo was very clean, beautifully decorated, comfortable and well maintained. Landlord was great to work with and very responsive to queries. The kitchen was fully equipped with anything you would need and plenty of dishes and glasses so that you didn't need to hand wash. Many extras were included that we have not found in other rental properties such as spices, paper products, dish and laundry detergent and an ice maker. The snacks were a nice little bonus as well as the basket of toiletries in both bathrooms. Enjoyed breakfast on the screened porch. We have been vacationing in Lewes for many years, but for those tenants new to the area, the information book provided by the landlord offers a wealth of information on things to do, directions, ideas for rainy days and restaurant menus. Lewes beach is about a 5 minute drive and with all the amenities within the Villages of Five Points, you don't even need to venture out onto Route 1. The pools are a nice alternative to the beach and aren't usually crowded. I would definitely stay at this condo again.

Wonderful time, fantastic place, great landlords! The condo has everything, including extras like a few snacks and toiletries to get you started. It breeds good will, which makes you want to give back, and puts a smile on your face when someone is so thoughtful!

The condo is clean, safe for little ones to run around, and the screened in porch was my favorite spot. Falling asleep to the sound of the fountain in the pond was my favorite thing to do. The ceiling fans are plentiful and effective.

Sonya worked hard to make sure that every little detail was attended to. I have already referred this condo to friends, and we haven't even left yet!

We visited the Lewes Beach, Cape Henlopen beach, and Rehoboth Beach. All were great. We ate at Honey's, the Fisherman's Wharf, the Green Turtle and Irish Eyes in Lewes and Jakes and the Green Turtle in Rehoboth - great. The pool was wonderful. It's obvious we're not regulars, rather, renters, but the other guests were nice to us and our kids. The pool was a wonderful respite from the hot beach, and a great way to wind down the kids after the beach.

I'd do it again tomorrow if I didn't need to go back to work!
