Property description

Located across from the beach path and with panoramic views of the wildlife refuge, Om Away from Home offers a comfortable home base for a fabulous vacation. You're just steps away from gentle surf for swimming and a beautiful sandy beach for playing and sunning and for your morning runs or sunset walks. Living is easy with comfortable furniture indoors and out, upper and lower decks with gorgeous sunset views, and an outdoor shower with a nature view.

The house is raised on pilings with the main level one flight up, and features an open floor plan, soaring ceilings in great room and MBR, and lots of windows and skylights for a bright and airy feeling. Central Air. Fully equipped kitchen with island. Large flat screen TV in living room. Cable and Wifi.

Step out onto the very private upper rear deck from the kitchen/dining area and relax on comfortably cushioned furniture while sipping morning coffee or cool drinks at sunset. Great bird-watching! Or enjoy the shade while swaying in the hammock below.

Launch your kayak or canoe right from our private dock! Bring your own, or rent conveniently nearby. We provide 1 kayak at Om Broadkill Beach house for your use.

Sleeps 6 in comfortable beds, with a 7th possible on air mattress.
Linen service is INCLUDED in your weekly rental fee. (No more lugging sheets to the beach and doing all that laundry.)

King bed in the spacious upper level Master Bedroom with sunrise views over the bay. Need a quiet corner for work or writing? A large desk with desk chair in the MBR provides the setting. Adjacent tiled bathroom with over-sized whirlpool tub. Bedroom #2 on main level has a King bed and a comfy chair with ottoman. Bedroom #3 has a Queen bed and lovely water views. Ceiling fans in all bedrooms.

Beach chairs, beach umbrellas and barbecue grills provided. Game closet and book library too.

If you want a change of pace from Broadkill Beach's tranquility, try the free tour and tasting at Dogfish Head Brewery in Milton. Rehoboth Beach's boardwalk, shops, restaurants, nightlife, and acres of tax-free outlet shopping are a short drive away. Even closer is the historic and charming town of Lewes with its many restaurants, shops, and Saturday Farmers' Market.

It's a bit surprising that with the cities of Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C. only a couple of hours away, Broadkill Beach somehow remains uncrowded, unhurried, and something of a hidden treasure... Just right for a dreamy beach vacation.

Om Away from Home Broadkill Beach house is located near the charming historic town of Milton, home of Dogfish Head Brewery and the fabulous Friday Farmers Market.

The beautiful bay beach is a 1 minute walk from our door. Kayak or canoe right from Om's private dock on Deep Hole Creek. We provide 1 kayak at Om Broadkill Beach house for your use.

Travelling from the highway to the beach, you'll pass the open and beautiful vistas of Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge. Visitors rate it high for peaceful trails through forest, marshlands, and waterways and for great bird and wildlife sightings. The park office is about 4 miles from Om beach house, an easy bike ride or drive.

About a mile from the house is the Broadkill Beach Store, where you can get coffee, fresh donuts, sandwiches, ice cream, fishing supplies, and rent kayaks too.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We enjoyed renting at many beaches over the years before buying our house at Broadkill Beach in 2013. All the things we love to do, like taking walks, kayaking, bird-watching, swimming, bicycling, are all things we enjoy doing at Broadkill Beach.

Why the Owner Chose Broadkill Beach, DE, USA:
Om Away from Home at Broadkill Beach is like a magnet drawing us to it. The home is casual and comfortable, and the beach is relaxed and uncrowded. There's a feeling of airiness here - so when you arrive, you just breathe. It was that feeling which sparked the idea for the home's name.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Great birdwatching Peace and quiet Watching the tidal creek waters roll in and out Easy walks along the beach Comfortable swimming in the bay Bonfire on the beach on a cool night Falling asleep to the sound of the surf
