About the Property

2nd floor Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, wifi, washer/dryer, community pool

************************************************
OFF-SEASON MONTHLY RENTAL is now available at a very reasonable flat rate per month (about $50 per day).
************************************************

Summer Weekly Rentals:
January: We allow our repeat guests to book first during the month of January. We find that it is only fair that our repeat customers get first choice.
February: New First-time Guests are invited to book their vacation week and enjoy a new rental experience.


We try to keep this site updated, however, some rental dates may appear as "available" until we receive payment.

A link to our direct website can be found under the 'Owner Info' .

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Clean! Charming decor! Reasonably priced without all the extra fees, because they are included in our flat rate! We keep our unit in top condition for our renters - it is clean, updated, and well maintained with all the comforts you need for your stay. It is also quiet and peaceful, as many of our guests enjoy listening to the fountained pond while relaxing on the screened porch.


We call our unit Beach Escapes because we want our guests to escape from the daily-grind, while enjoying a nice leisurely vacation near the beach in a worry free accommodation. All of the conveniences are here, with a fully equipped kitchen, 2 large bedrooms, 2 baths, in a fantastic location just outside of Historic Lewes in the Villages of Five Points community.

This second floor unit sleeps 4-6 comfortably. The master bedroom has a king-size bed, walk-in closet, and a private bath. The additional bedroom has two twin beds with a hall bath, and the living room offers a queen sleeper sofa.

AMENITIES: We want you to feel at home! All the comforts are here, all reasonably priced with one flat rate and no hidden fees. Fully equipped kitchen with full refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, blender, dishes & cups, pots & pans, utinsiles and more. There are 2 TVs with cable and DVD players, clock radios, local phone, and FREE WIFI within the unit! Plus our unit also has the convenience of a new washer and dryer inside the unit, as well as a screened porch overlooking a fountained pond.

COMPLEX: There are 2 outdoor community pools, tennis courts, a children's playground area, as well as a peaceful fountained pond enjoyed right from the condo unit's screened porch, and there are convenient walking paths throughout the Village. The community ocassionally offers free outdoor entertainment at various times during the summer.

LOCATION: Centrally located, just about 1 mile outside of historic Lewes. Approximately two miles from your choice of two beaches - Cape Henlopen State Park and Lewes Public Beach (Delaware Bay). The shops at the Village of Five Points include a grocery store, pharmacy, lots of restaurants, fitness club, and more. The complex is just a short drive to the excitement of Rehoboth Boardwalk, close to chain-restaurants, water parks, and the Rehoboth Outlets.

VALUE: The unit is reasonably priced, clean, quiet and peaceful, & one of the best values for your vacation dollars, all with personal attention to detail, all-included in one flat rate. Most of our renters come back year after year -- and that is our best compliment!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
More Info, as to why our unit is a great value:

- located EAST of Rt. 1. This is very important during the summer months, because Rt. 1 is a major travel road which becomes very congested (10am-8pm) during the summer.

- located in Lewes, which is quiet, relaxing, and historically educational. If you want the excitement, then Rehoboth and Dewey are only 20 minutes away. But you still get to close your eyes at night to peaceful serenity. Ahhhhh!

- 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.

- Much 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 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
You can either book through the OWNER (via email or by phone) or on this VRBO website.

VRBO/HomeAway/FlipKey would like all renters to book and pay through this website, however the booking fees can add up to $100 or more, increasing their profit paid by renters and owners. There have been many complaints regarding the security and reliability of the payment processing company, despite the company claiming that it is more secure.

Book directly with the owners to save the additional fee expense, with a variety of payment methods. Feel free to speak with the owner directly. We want to keep our unit inviting and well maintained, good reviews, and happy guests!

The choice is yours to make.

Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • ALL inclusive rates $0

Notes:

Booking: Summer WEEKLY Reservations begin in February each year and are based on a first come, first serve basis.

Our returning guests have priority during the month of January. It's only fair that we allow our previous guests, who have been faithful renters year after year, the opportunity of first choice.

Weekly rates are inclusive of fees and charges (cleaning, wi-fi, pool, and other fees - are all included!)

Monthly rates during the off-season available October to May only.

*Our condominium complex has a rental rule specifying a 7 night minimum stay, therefore we must charge our minimum rate (inclusive of all fees and charges). Of course we cannot dictate if our renters choose to depart earlier than the 7 nights.

Payments: 1/2 total rental amount due within 10 days of sent rental agreement and 1/2 final payment due 30 days prior to arrival. There are no additional fees or last minute charges. Rates may change until written confirmation.

Cancellation Policy:

Please notify us immediately of any cancellations, so we can look for a replacement.

If we are able to re-rent the unit at the same rate, then your deposit will be returned in accordance

with Delaware rental laws. Advance notice of the cancellation is highly recommended so that we can make every

effort to find another renter. If we are not able to re-rent the condo, regrettably we can not return your deposit.

We would much rather rent the unit, then keep a deposit!

We discourage utilization of the credit card payment system offered on this website (YapStone) for 2 reasons:

1.) EXPENSE - there is at least a 3 percent additional fee to use their system - for you and for us!

2). SAFETY - the credit card company has several class action law suites due to database breaches and security leaks.

Rates are confirmed with a rental agreement that you receive before making a deposit payment. You have a choice to book through the owners directly or this website.

VRBO would like all renters to pay through this website, however booking fees can add up to over $100. VRBO also has many complaints regarding the security of the payment processing company.

The choice is yours.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Hello, a bit about us... My husband and I are the property owners of "Beach Escapes" condo unit. I have been vacationing 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 on our own, 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 from having to eat-out every meal. We hope you enjoy your stay with us and want to return, like many of our other guests. I am also a licensed Relator in Delaware.

Why the Owner Chose Villages of Five Points, Lewes, DE, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
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 cleanliness of the unit as we strive to keep it clean, updated, 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.
