About the property

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. House is not crowded by other properties. Living is easy with outdoor shower, comfortable furniture indoors and out, and both upper and lower decks with gorgeous sunset views.

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 and master bedroom. Cable, Wi-Fi, and Bose Bluetooth sound.

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. Remote-controlled awning for afternoon sunshade comfort. Great bird-watching! Or relax on chaises or hammock on the deck 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 7th and 8th 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.) Available for small fee for weekend rentals.

King bed in the spacious upper level Master Bedroom with sunrise views over the bay. MBR deck with bay views. Need a quiet corner for work or writing? A large desk with desk chair in the MBR provides the setting. Adjacent tiled bathroom with walk-in shower and 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, beach toys and barbecue grills provided. (one gas, one charcoal) Game closet and book library too.

If you're looking for a peaceful vacation home that's not crowded by other rental properties, and that has easy access to the beach and gorgeous views, our beach house may be what you're looking for. We provide comfortable furnishings and professional cleaning to assure that you have a relaxing vacation destination.

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 are the historic and charming towns of Milton and Lewes with many restaurants, shops, and Friday or Saturday Farmers' Markets.

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.

About Candy Berlin

We rented vacation homes at many beaches over the years before buying our house at Broadkill Beach in 2013. We enjoy kayaking, bird-watching, walking on the beach and along the trails in the wildlife refuge, swimming, and bicycling - and love that Broadkill Beach provides a serene and beautiful setting for it all.

Candy Berlin purchased this house in 2013

Why Candy Berlin chose Broadkill Beach

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.

What makes this house unique

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

Lovely house and location

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful stay at this house. The location is ideal, with the wildlife refuge and creek out the back door and a lovely beach with calm water across the street. We had dinner in Lewes and Rehoboth, and also cooked in the well-equipped kitchen. Drinks on the back deck with the sun setting over the refuge was amazing.

The house is very clean and nicely decorated. It was nice to have some beach equipment at the house, as well as the kayak, which we used along with our own canoe. Thank you, Candy, for a great get-away!!

Peaceful, with great views of wildlife refuge and creek.

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a good location with Prime Hook wildlife refuge in the back, close to Lewes, Milton, etc., and just across the street from the bay beach. Very clean, comfortable, and spacious. Kitchen is well equipped. Do read the fine print about the linens as they are not always provided, and you need to bring towels.

Great September Beach rental!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely location and a wonderful house! We caught 4 dozen crabs in the back creek in one hour! We'll be back again next year. Just a short distance to the beach which is deep and beautiful. Just what we were looking for. Thank you so much!! Marlin & Barb Good

The beautiful bay beach is a 1 minute walk from our door. Kayak or canoe directly 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.

At just a mile from the house, the Broadkill Store is a great spot for fresh donuts, sandwiches, fishing supplies, beach toys and even kayak rentals.
