- Broadkill Beach is a rare find on the eastern seaboard, its gentle waves are ideal for children, kayaking and swimming. It is a residential beach with one country store located ¼ mile walk from the house. It’s isolated from the commercial development of the Delaware coast by the Primehook National Wildlife Refuge, yet it’s only 10-15 miles from all the shops, restaurants, bars and boardwalk of Rehoboth, Lewes, and Dewey. The best of both worlds are found in Broadkill, a quiet beach to enjoy the solitude of the water, friends, and family, yet minutes from the attractions.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks kindly to all of our guests who have taken the time to submit a review, and for all of your positive feedback! We too enjoy spending quiet relaxing days at the beach house, and thanks to our guests for noting that we've done our best to make it comfortable and luxury.

I'd also like you to note that we were not aware that our current housekeeper has been leaving the house less than spotless, and we are taking immediate steps to ensure that the cleanliness of the house matches the quality service that we provide!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Chill awhile was just what we were looking for. All bedrooms had full size or better beds. Very clean and just a short walk to the beautiful beach

Overall a great week!

The house was perfect for our family. The beach was clean and private. The calm waves were great for the little ones in our family. We couldn’t have asked for a more relaxing week. We will definitely we back next year!

Perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for a family Thanksgiving get-together. It is clean and cozy with enough room for everyone to be together at the table or to have some quiet time in small groups, reading or playing games. We got to spend many hours outdoors walking the beach or the trails at Prime Hook NWR.

Perfect October stay!

  • 4 of 5

While there were only the two of us we made the most of the whole house. Really appreciated the bikes as the streets are perfect to bike on. The view was very nice from the top floor in the morning and at night. The kitchen had everything we needed and I can see how a larger group would feel at home and be able to have great home cooked meals after a day at the beach. I really enjoyed the beach but was not a fan of the amount of flies and mosquitoes. Not sure if it was the time of year or the location. Thank you to Heather who made our stay easy!

Looking for a beautiful home with a quiet beach? Chill a While is for you!

  • 5 of 5

We were told by friends to go to Bethany or Dewey, but when we saw this house we thought it was perfect. We were right! The house was beautiful...clean and well kept. very comfortable furniture. The views on the 2 upper decks were amazing. We were just about 1 minute of walking to the beach. Sand toys, chairs, boogie boards, and beach towels were all provided! No looking for a good spot on the beach...we practically had the whole beach to ourselves! We took a ride toward Dewey, one day, and it was so crowded we turned around and came back to this quiet, peaceful , beautiful beach.The neighbors were all so friendly, too. It was a wonderful experience. We will definitely be back.
