About the property

3 BR, 2 full baths, oversized whirlpool tub, private dock, Sleeps 6-8

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 and both upper and lower decks with gorgeous sunset views. Even the outdoor shower has a lovely 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 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. New awning for afternoon comfort. 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 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.)

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, beach toys 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 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, taking walks on the beach and nature hikes along 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 Delaware

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

Great Family Get Away....

  • 5 of 5

Om Away from Home was the perfect beach house for our first vacation to Broadkill Beach. The home was spacious and very well stocked. Everything we could need for any meal was with in our reach. The bedrooms are spacious and the house layout was perfect for our family. Candy was very quick to reply to all my inquiries from the very get go.

Broadkill Beach was surprisingly unpopulated for the middle of July. Our closest beach going neighbor was maybe 250 yards down the beach. Our boys loved playing in the sand and our weather was beautiful. The only thing that hindered our beach experience was the flies, and it was only on certain days.

All in all, we liked the Broadkill Beach experience and Candy's house was a perfect fit. Thanks!

Beautiful comfortable clean Home

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautiful and comfortable and very clean. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking and all of the amenities for easy cleanup. The beds are so very comfortable as is the living room furniture. We had 6 people 3 of which were children and there was plenty of space as well as things to do. I must say packing bug spray is a must but doesn't take away from your fun. The wildlife watching was so cool and Candy has a book to help identify the birds and binoculars to help see them clearly. I can't say enough about our stay. Loved it. For me personally being old, overweight with bad knees, had some issues getting over the dunes to get to the beach but it didn't keep me away. The owner is so very easy to work with and very nice as well.

Extremely peaceful !

  • 5 of 5

The house is very nice and comfortable, with great views. We especially like the veiw from the back of the house. The beach is not crowded and a very easy walk from the house. We kayaked in the canal and the ocean. The owner is very easy to contact and very nice!

Awesome place to stay. Very clean house, comfortable accommodations, and practically have the beach to yourself (and family). Kid attractions and boardwalks are reasonable drive away. And the small town of Milton has family things to do too, e.g., kids train ride, movie night, and food truck night on Tuesdays. We'll be going back next summer.

Perfect beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great spot for a perfect beach vacation. The property was exactly as described. The house is spacious and well laid out with beautiful views. Nothing but nature can be seen from the back porch. The beach is just across the street and over the dune. Broadkill beach is really a hidden gem. The wide sandy beach is somewhat calmer than the ocean beaches and perfect for kids to swim and play in the waves. Most days we had about a mile of beach to ourselves. Be sure and walk to the nearby shipwreck. The whole area is very natural and we saw lots of wildlife from turtles to foxes, not to mention birds of great variety. The owner was friendly and responsive. Highly recommended for a serene family vacation.

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.

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.
