My home is an absolute one-of-a-kind 3,200 square foot meticulously maintained beach house, located in a very desirable location in historic Lewes, Delaware. In less than a three hour drive from Washington, New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and NJ, you'll be relaxing in comfort and ready for a dip in our pool or a walk on the nearby beach.

Let me begin with the area, aside from the incredible boardwalk and beaches, there is something for everyone! Located just a half mile away from our home is the best winery in Delaware – Nassau Valley Vineyards. Complete with gorgeous views, a historic museum, and very reasonably priced tastings! Just a mile away is downtown Lewes, complete with marinas, fine dining, bakeries, cafes, ice cream, and of course the beach. Take a day trip into CapeMay, N.J. on the ferry that leaves from Lewes. It's a lovely boat ride and once you arrive, you'll enjoy the history, shops, and just strolling down quaint streets lined with the Victorian mansions of Cape-May! Cape Henlopen State Park a 10 minute drive, offers beaches, biking, hiking, hourly boat/kayak rentals, the Sea Side Nature Center, and of course the historic World War II observation towers. Not a good day to be outside? No worries – beginning just a mile down route 1 begins the endless stretch of outlets. From the basics to the very high end, all of your shopping needs can be met, and best of all, it's tax free!! For you children and teens, there is a water park, go-kart track, and miniature golf. Five miles away you will find exciting Rehoboth Beach offering endless dining experiences, boutiques, as well as a beach boardwalk with plenty of goodies for you and the kids. As if that isn’t enough, there's fabulous golfing, light houses, casinos, live music venues, and more.

Although you may be exhausted after beaching it during the day and enjoying the area’s night life, you will completely recharge at my quiet, comfortable, well decorated home. Located away from the main road and at the end of a dead-end cul-de-sac, you will sleep well in complete silence. From the living room, there is plenty of well manicured grass to play on, and you can enjoy your morning coffee on the back deck. My beach home is only 5 years old, has brand new furnishings, with modern construction including an open kitchen, great room, 3 and one half baths, and a loft overlooking the living room complete with a game table. With 3,400 square feet, you will not find another property this size in this price range. There are 3 bedrooms – the master suite includes a king-size bed with private bathroom including a full tub, separate shower, and his-and-her sinks. The 2 other bedrooms are up-stairs, large and bright, and share a bathroom with his-and-her sinks. All bedrooms have loads of closet space and ceiling fans. Downstairs you will find a finished basement which includes another full bath and a wet bar. This large area makes a terrific play room or can serve as an extra bedroom. Speaking of play, the upstairs loft has an additional wall mounted flat screen TV. and foosball table. If you don’t feel like heading to the beach, simply walk down to the community pool – a pool pass will be included for you at no extra charge. The property is also perfect for a winter get-a-away, forget the furnace and heat the whole house by the gas fire-place with just the flick of a switch. The kitchen is fully equipped and has everything you'll need to cook or prepare meals including dishes, pots, pans, a gas stove. Pack lightly, as my home has a brand new upscale washer and dryer.

Discounts offered for payment by check!

I am experienced at renting and ensure professional cleanings. My home is only 2.5 hours from Philadelphia, Baltimore, and D.C. I assure you that the rental process will handled promptly, smoothly, and with attention to detail. I look forward to sharing my home with you!

About Jacob Ellwanger

Experienced at renting properties. Professional and timely. I live full time only two hours away in downtown Washington, D.C.

Jacob Ellwanger purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Jacob Ellwanger chose Lewes

I have been coming to Lewes frequently for over 10 years now and finally purchased this property because I love the area so much. I have traveled extensively and have never found an area quite like it. It has all of the beauty that nature can offer from the large beaches to the state parks or simply the woods behind my house. At the same time, the area has all of the conveniences of home whether you need to run to the bank or grocery store. Few places can you find such unique bars, restaurants, and boutique shops while also enjoying large-scale tax free outlet shopping. Each trip I take here is different - sometimes I never leave the house and have mimosas on the deck until walking to the pool. Other times I'm out all night letting loose and still other times I spend the entire weekend out-doors enjoying the beaches, trails, and local history. The area is extremely kid friendly with board-walk arcades, candy, bumper cars, water parks, go-carts, and more all within 5 miles. There is truly something for everyone here!

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

This was a delightful home. Very spacious-perfect for two families as the upstairs had its own sitting room which provided privacy for all and great space to get away. We did not even use the basement which was also a wonderful get away space. The beds were comfortable and the owner was very easy to work with. He was very accommodating and provided little extras like paper towels and hand soap in the bathrooms. It was great not having to take linens. I would definitely rent here again!

Very spacious home in great location!

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful week in Lewes/Rehoboth. Great location; close to Cape Henlopen State Park beach and town of Lewes. Close to outlets and Rehoboth Beach. Great that linens and towels are furnished. Need to bring your own beach chairs and umbrellas. Note that the grill is a small Weber grill as there was no propane tank on the gas grill, which looked brand new. Very nice to have upstairs living area; great for adult children to hang out and sleep!

Owner's Response: Marsha, I'm glad you had a great weekend! I'm not sure what happened to that propane tank, but is has since been replaced. It is impossible for me to ensure propane throughout the summer though, as there is no time to check and refill with back-to-back summer rentals. Tenants are welcome to buy/bring their own tank, or can always use the second charcoal grill. Thanks for the review!!

Absolutely Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

This is perhaps one of the best homes/townhomes we've ever rented! Our family of 5 (husband/wife, 2 teenage daughters and our pup) have been renting homes and townhomes in the summer from Cape May, NJ to the Outer Banks, NC for the past 20 years with much of it in Delaware. This home rates way up there! It is clean, spacious, modern and extremely comfortable. It's location is excellent since it is close to Lewes and Rehoboth Beach. I would definitely rent again next time we are planning to stay in the area.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the lovely review! I'm so glad you enjoyed the home and had a wonderful vacation! I hope to have you again next year. Summer weeks start filling up in Jan/Feb and usually are fully booked by March. Thanks again for renting and taking great care of the place!
