About the property

3+ Bedrooms/3 Full Baths (Sleeps 9-10)


Your beach chair is waiting!

Adventure Awaits!

Make beautiful memories with family & friends at the beach...

Our home is located in a peaceful neighborhood surrounded by nature, and just 1 block to the bay beach! Connect with nature. You can be as active or relaxed as you like. Sun. Sand. Shells. Bikes. Birds. Bay Breezes. Kayaks. Kites. Picnics. If you can tear yourself away, you are close enough to enjoy the local attractions, most less than 10 minutes away. But try to make it back in time for the most amazing sunsets! Take the chairs/kayaks to the beach and enjoy the show. If you have never vacationed on the Bay, don't rule it out. (If you have, you know what we mean...)

Our guests will enjoy a clean, bright, comfortable house, freshly painted, with new furnishings. A little beachy, inspired by nature, with a bit of global influence.

The first floor has a living room, eat-in kitchen, laundry area, master bedroom (queen) & full bath, a second bedroom (queen) & another full bath.

The second floor can be used as one very large master suite, or as three separate sleeping areas (queen, 3 twins). Perfect for families traveling with children. There is also a third full bath upstairs.

Outside there is an over sized & gated deck, and a fully fenced yard. Great for BBQ's and lawn games. There is also a small fire pit in the yard. The gated front porch is also a nice place to relax.

Our home and the Bay are pet-friendly. Up to two well-behaved dogs can stay. A pet deposit is required. You can walk your dog on a leash on the bay beaches all year round.

Kayaks & vests are available for use, as well as bikes & beach chairs. And we recommend that you use all of them. Fun!

There is no smoking inside the house, please. But dancing is encouraged!

We ask that you treat our home, our neighbors, the beach & other natural surrounding areas with respect.

Enjoy your stay! Make great memories! The area is beautiful year-round.

About Maria Scott

We currently live in PA, near the Poconos. We grew up in Schuylkill County, PA, but have lived in Philadelphia, a few other places, and then settled in Northern California for quite a few years. We love to travel and explore new places, but we always return to Cape May... it just has a certain charm. And we still have close friends in the area.

Maria Scott purchased this house in 2012

Why Maria Scott chose Del Haven

We looked at a lot of properties in the area, but we kept coming back to this one. We love nature & the outdoors & being so close to the beach. And so this house felt like a natural choice. We love being able to share it with family, friends & guests.

What makes this house unique

We sometimes like to travel with family and/or friends. So we wanted a space that had enough room to accommodate one, two or even three families, but still felt cozy & comfortable. And within walking distance to the beach. We do that quite a few times a day when we are there!

Great place for a beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 spent a relaxing week at this house on the Delaware Bay. It was the first time in many years since we had vacationed with our 2 dogs and it worked out well. The beach down the street was a great place for walking the dogs, exploring at low tide and watching lovely sunsets, although not for sunbathing or playing in the water. For that, Maria recommended that we try Rigbee Beach, a 10 minute drive from the house, which was perfect. It's MUCH less crowded than the beach in Cape May, and we could bring the dogs. The house is exactly as pictured, and Maria had everything that you would need for a beach vacation, from beach umbrellas and towels to an outdoor shower. We cooked 2 dinners and 3 breakfasts in the well-equipped kitchen using the patio grill. Thank you, Maria and Dave, for sharing your house with us.

This was an amazing weekend! Couldn't be more satisfied. I spent a weekend with my family and everyone enjoyed it, from my 2-yr old niece to my 8-month puppy! The home felt like home. Instructions were easy to follow. Thank you Maria for all your patience and the list of places to go! The sunset was a beautiful site. Everyone stated that we would love to come back! Thank you for making our family weekend perfect by sharing your lovely home with us!

Wonderful home for the holidays

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home so my family could all gather to share the Thanksgiving holiday. It's a lovely home--we used the first floor bedrooms and my brother and sister-in-law used the second floor so everyone had some privacy. It's only a 5 minute walk to the beach which we just loved. The house was stocked with all the "essentials" paper towels, tissues, etc. and was very clean and well kept. The large screen TV in the living room, which was very comfortable, was great.

Everything was perfectly described on the website so we had no surprises when we walked in. The owner, Maria, was very attentive and sent welcoming emails upon our arrival and departure.

Fabulous House for the family!

  • 5 of 5

The ladies in my family wanted a short get away to Cape May. Seeing the house online it seemed very nice. In person it was even better - clean- roomy-well appointed with washer/dryer/full kitchen/3 full bathrooms. Maria' Scott - the owner was wonderful to work with, she was most helpful and the house reflects a wonderful family environment. We had 2 small dogs with us and the fenced in yard was a major plus. I would definitely highly recommend this house to rent - and will plan on renting it in the future.
