200 STEPS from the BEACH and WALKING distance to HISTORIC LEWES shops and restaurants; the Laughing Gull is a new beautifully furnished contemporary beach block house.
Three stories of outdoor deck space, soaring cathedral ceilings and a great reverse floor plan that places the kitchen and great room on the second floor to capture off shore breezes. Two master suites and five bedrooms (2 kings, 2 queens, and 2 twins) sleep 10 comfortably creating the perfect floor plan for large family vacations and entertaining.

Spectacular Cape Henlopen State Park is a mere bike ride away, or launch your Kayak at the brand new Canal Front park. Lewes is a National Scenic byway, the first town in the first state, and borders the Delaware Bay, the Atlantic Ocean and is only 5 miles north of Rehoboth Beach and boardwalk amusements.

About the owner: I grew up spending summers at the Lewes seashore and always dreamt of owning a beach house here. Lewes has maintained its old world charm but continues to renew itself with great restaurants, shops and entertainment. Some things never change great swimming in the bay or the salty ocean air at Cape Henlopen a magical peninsula where the bay meets the sea... reach us, search lewes gull.
Why the Owner Chose Lewes Beach (East of Canal) (Lewes, DE, USA):
The Laughing Gull is light bright open and airy with a great reverse floor plan that is perfect for family groups. Open spaces for spending time together with plenty of balconies and decks for some quiet time. We handle Gull bookings ourselves, so the quality of your vacation really matters to us and with our wonderful cleaning team and property manager we are able to keep the house in immaculate condition. We have many families who also think the Gull is special place, as they've made it a family tradition to return each year. We'd love to have you and your family do the same!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
200 steps to the beach, walking distance to ice cream shops, historic downtown Lewes restaurants, shops and activities. Truly you can park the car for days and never use it. Walking and cycling distance means a break from shuttling the kids around and more relax time for you.
