About the property

secluded beach access, waterfront home located at Vines Creek Marina and Bay

A classic beach home with an incredible view! The waterfront home provides amenities for a relaxing experience overlooking the Indian River Bay, just a few miles to the ocean at Bethany Beach and the boardwalks in Rehoboth and Oean City.

Whether you are looking to get away for quiet and relaxation, family activities, golf getaway or if you are a fisherman at heart, this vacation home is for you. The Shore House is located at the Vines Creek Marina which can provide for all your fishing needs. As an inclusive gift for our visitors, we invite you to bring your boat/jet ski/canoe or kayak and launch at the on-site marina ramp during your stay. Feeling adventurous? The Marina staff can set you up with charter fishing trips or stand-up paddle board rentals.

The charming home features, 4 bedrooms that sleep 7 (1 queen, 2 double, 1 twin) and 2 bathrooms. A spacious living area that opens up to the sun porch facing panoramic views of the Indian River Bay. Enjoy your morning coffee taking in the view from the porch or step outside on the deck and grab a chair for a sunset experience.

Lots of activities local to keep you busy all week. We are less than a 20 minute drive to fantastic breweries & wineries, waterfront golf courses, and plenty of family friendly adventures! If you are looking for exclusivity just walk out the door down to our little 'gem' bay front beach. It's perfect for little ones!

The master bedroom has a queen bed, plenty of storage space and private bath. Wake up to full water views of the bay. Two bedrooms have double beds and the fourth room has a twin bed with room for a children's pack-n-play or collapsible crib. Every room features a flat screen TV. There is a full bath located across from the guest bedrooms. Enjoy the outside shower after a long day in the sun. Fire up the outdoor grill and have a summer feast on the deck or in the sand at the picnic tables below. The salt air is calling...BOOK NOW!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our family could not say enough on how well your beach house was so beautiful and well decorated. Every one had a wonderful time and especially enjoyed the quiteness which you never have in a house right on the beach. The grand kids want to come back again. They said they never went to a beach house on vacation and treated so well by the owners. It was so relaxing. The sun porch was ideal for the kids to play games and still see the boats coming and going. Even on a rainy day you still felt outside in this sun porch. The living room and kitchen were so beautifully decorated and was our favorite place to hang. The master bedroom was especially great and a wonderful view and still very private.

The other surprise was when we got inside and saw the sand bucket filled with goodies. The grandkids even though teenagers said is this for us? We said well I think so and they said how cool is that.

Also a great big thank you for the bottle of wine which we all enjoyed.

We cannot thank you enough for every thing you did for us and how very much we felt a part of you family. Especially the visit the grandkids had at you store. They are still talking about it.

Great, peaceful vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Shore House was perfect for my family! So glad we brought our kayaks, the private beach was just right for my small grandchildren. Really nice to be able to walk to it.

The house was very clean and fit our needs to a tee!

Sunset resort

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect, on the marsh with fantastic sunsets. there was plenty of room for 4 adults and 2 children. The private beach was perfect for the kids to go paddle boarding and Bethany Beach was only 10 minutes away. We had a blast!

Family summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

Loved the stay. If you don't want to be within the busy and loud beach areas but still want to be within a 30 min drive to all the beaches, this is a great option. The sunsets were spectacular. Walking to the private beach to enjoy the water, to fish and crab was very relaxing. It was a great option for my large family who just wanted to relax and enjoy eachother's company. Valerie and her mom were very accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. We look forward to spending future summer vacations and other Fall weekend getaway opportunities at this great location.

Quiet home, beautiful sunsets, wonderful owners, spacious living space, close beaches /beach towns

  • 5 of 5

Our family wasn't sure where we wanted to go, just sure we wanted to try Delaware. We were so pleasantly surprised. The short drive to the beach allowed us to try different beaches and different beach towns, that we never explored when staying beachfront in the past. GREAT choice. The owners were so welcoming and there for any questions we had, even area recommendations. The house was clean, well stocked, and had so much room for our family of 10. We also rented the cottage next door for our parents and other family members who wanted a quiet space to escape to. Will absolutely stay again and recommend to anyone.
