Enjoy the best month of the year, warm days, cool nights-hear the waves with your windows open! 'JUST PACK YOUR BAGS- WE'VE GOT THE REST!!' We help you in your vacation planning by providing the following items: all kitchen needs including dishwashing supplies, laundry detergent, laundry softener, toilet tissue, paper towels, trashbags, towels, sheets and pillows. We updated our kitchen in 2012 and updating our primary bath in 2013. The home offers a open floor plan and water view is available from every seat in the living area with our 9 ft glass sliding doors. Large stackable washer dryer is included. All three bedrooms are spacious and two bedrooms face the water to enjoy the sounds of the waves at night. We offer 42' flat screen TV with Comcast and wireless high speed internet. There is also a TV in the Master bedroom.
We offer two queen beds, one full size and one single beds. We provide large weber propane grill, outdoor shower and outdoor and beach furniture.
Enjoy the 360 degree view from an all-sided wrap around gated porch. Face the beautiful Delaware Bay from one side, and simply turn around to view Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge on the other. Bring your binoculars to enjoy many, many species of migrating birds and various wildlife present in the refuge. Come out at dusk for the gorgeous sunset or later at night to see all the stars in the dark sky. Also visible from the porch are the lights of Cape May, NJ and those of Lewes, DE. Take a few steps to the sandy beach and collect such treasures as seashells, seaglass, sharks teeth and beautiful stones.
Broadkill offers a quiet, relaxing setting to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Kick back and read a great book on the private beach without the crowds of the public beaches to disturb you. Dogs are permitted on the beach year around and you can have a bonfire on the beach too! Kids will enjoy the small waves of the Delaware Bay as you sit in the water nearby. Visit the Broadkill Store which offers fishing tackle, an assortment of grocery items, sandwiches and great milkshakes to order, a small gift area, and don't miss the homemade donuts on Sunday!
Just five miles away enjoy the historic ship building town of Milton. Home of Dog Fish Brewery (tours available), casual dining, grocery stores, pharmacy, antiquing and seasonal festivals. Just down the road is Lewes, the first settlement in DE, with a great deal of shops, museums and fine dining. For the kids (and kids at heart alike), try the Rehobeth Beach boardwalk for rides, games and strolling the boardwalk.

About Cathy & John Yost
We have been offering the home for rental for over 15 years with no negative feed back. We live across the street and perform needed maintenance asap and the home is always very clean. Things do happen, we are there to help remedy any issues. One thing we do is quickly introduce ourselves to the guests after they are settled in and make sure they have what they need. Our goal is to provide a relaxing vacation away from the over crowded beaches of neighboring towns along the coast. Our oldest daughter loved the marine aspects and went on to receive her PHD as a Marine Parasentologist-her goal was to provide fishing for young people for years to come!
Why Cathy & John Yost chose Sussex County
It is designed for a couple wanting to get away or a family retreat where the access to the water is virtually steps from the sand and water. We offer three large bedrooms with the master having TV. We are dog friendly and provide the security of both stairs having locking gates for the wrap around decking (360 degrees) for children and animals. Our kitchen is equiped like your home and provide new appliances including a new flat top stove and 22 cubic foot refrigerator with an ice maker stove. You can sit on the east deck facing the water to view the sunrise and the west deck to view the sunsets. Traffic is minimal due to South Bayshore Drive being a deadend street lined with vacation and full timers homes' If you are looking for a multi-story property, this is not for you! One floor living plan offers easy access for seniors but we are on piling so there are steps to get up to the decks.
What makes this House unique
We make your packing easy! We supply the linens, towels and beach towel, needed detergents, foil and plastic wrap to name a few. Our deck wraps around the entire home so you have perfect full view of the water and enjoy the sun rises along with a great view of Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge, you also get to see the sun set!. Beach chairs are also included with a large weber propane grill. There is no additional charges for what we supply. We do not impose a cleaning fee! You are right on the beach and from the deck, you can see the dolphins swim up and down the bay as they feed-wow what a sight. Dogs are permitted on the beach year around but leash laws are in effect. Private beach, look right or left and you may see 30 people. No one can park and enter the beach unless they are home owners or guests by the home. Alcoholic beverages are permitted along with bon fires.

Clean and well stocked!
Love how close to the beach the house is, wonderful wrap around porch. House is well stocked, just bring your family or friends and relax.
Shhhhh! Dont tell anyone.
Such a great find for a relaxing getaway! Almost didn't want to share, so as to keep all availability to ourselves... :-) But that wouldn't be fair, would it?
John & Cathy are lovely folks, their home is lovely & well stocked with necessities (thank you), bringing your 4 legged friend here is great fun, & guess what? Dune or no, they still have a view of the bay. Again I say, relax.
John & Cathy, Thank you for thinking of everything & all those little extras that made it so easy to stay, but so hard to leave!
Wonderful Beach Cottage
This comfortable house right on the Bay was perfect for us, our daughter, son-in-law, and our two young grandchildren, who could even enjoy the water -- which they can't at the ocean beaches to the south because of the rough surf. The owners provide all the essentials (its nice not to have to bring linens, etc.) Wrap around deck w/ gas grill, excellent A/C system, etc, etc. Thank you John and Cathy
Great beach access
This property had something for everyone. My husband and I went with a group of friends. The house was large enough to accommodate all of us and we had more than enough space. The beach was steps away from the porch and everyone was able to watch the amazing sunset/sunrises each day. John, the owner, was very friendly and helpful. The house had all of the basic supplies which made it easier when packing and/or grocery shopping. The property was pet friendly too which was fantastic for traveling with our yellow lab. Overall a great experience. If possible visit Mickeys crab house in Rehoboth dinner as you can order buckets of crabs and crack them on the table.
Excellent beach vacation home!
Very clean, comfortable and well stocked with everything you could possibly need. More spacious and attractive than the pictures convey. We have vacationed at Broadkill many times at a different rental. This one sold us on renting it again. We are local Delawareans so we had guests coming and going all week and had the best 4th of July ever!
Great, relaxing vacation!
First time staying at John & Cathy's rental & we will definitely return! John & Cathy were wonderful to deal with & talk to, very welcoming! The house & location were perfect. The wrap around deck with gates was nice for the kids. One of the nicest things was all the supplies they provide with the house. Not having to take sheets, towels, laundry soap, etc saved a lot of room while packing. The rooms are all nice size, the open area with kitchen, dining & living room is great. The kitchen is well stocked with nice pots & pans. Being right at the beach is wonderful...easy with the kids & taking all the beach things down to the water. Sitting in the house or on the deck watching the water & listening to the waves is what we love about coming to the beach & this house provided a great & memorable vacation! Cannot wait to book again!
