This pleasant vacation spot on the scenic Indian River has access to the Gull Point Marina, boat ramp, and Gull Point pool. Close to just about everything and nestled in the lovely community of Gull Point, this cozy two story townhouse is clean, comfortable, sleeps up to eight, and includes two full baths. The complete kitchen includes all needed cooking and serving utensils, and the home is also equipped with a clothes washer and dryer. Flat screen cable TV and broad-band internet is installed. Outdoor living is available on the upper deck (with a slight view of the bay), a first floor screen room, and a deck for an open-air evening meal or chat beneath the stars.
With full amenities, this sweet spot is a stone’s throw away from the pool, and a 3 minute walk to the Marina for stunning panoramic views of the ever-changing river and nearby parkland. Shopping, dining out, and all ocean-side state parks are a reasonable drive.
From your boat you can explore a variety of striking water settings and landscapes along the Indian River and its tributaries, the Rehobeth and Indian River bays, and the vast Atlantic ocean (about 8 miles away), and also the Holt Landing and Delaware State parks.
~ If fishing is your sport, Gull Point is right on the Indian River and has great fishing and crabbing..
~ If you like deep sea fishing, you're 8 miles by boat to the Indian River inlet and immense Atlantic Ocean with some of the best fishing grounds on the East Coast.
~ If you love water sports, bring your speed boat for skiing and tubing, and your jet skis, kite boards, windsurfers, kayaks, canoes, or sailboats!
~ If you like to surf, the North Shore of the Indian River Inlet and Cape Henlopen are some of the best surfing on the East Coast and are 15-20 miles away by car. Ocean City and Assateague, also famed for surfing, are about an hour away.
~ If you love to golf, you are 5 miles to 20 miles from some of the most beautiful courses in the region.
~ In addition, within 15-20 miles are the Delaware State Park beaches with open spaces, fantastic fishing from beach or jetty, and some of the best surfing on the east coast at the North Indian River Inlet Beach.
~ Also, if you just want to get away from it all, put your feet up and relax - this is the place. Peaceful views abound, and the Small Easy is a place to slow down, rest, and rejuvenate your soul.
For those who like the 'happenning' beach towns, Rehobeth beach is about 15 miles away from the house and has a boardwalk, various restaurants, shopping etc. A series of outlet malls is nearby as well. In addition, the historic town of Lewes is about a 15 mile drive from the house as well, where within a half-square mile you will find the Historic district, museums, shops, and fine restaurants.
Also 15 miles away, discover the one-of-a kind Cape Henlopen Park with something for everyone. This gem has wide open bay, ocean, and surfing beaches; the fascinating World War II Fort Myers museum complete with bunkers, barracks, artillery, and a 60 foot observation tower with amazing views which is open to the public. In addition, great kayaking in the Delaware bay which has a light house and jetty to explore (last time we went, dolphins were swimming all around us!) a nature center, loads of biking and hiking trails, and a large fishing pier. Cape May ferry, a great day-trip, is right next to Cape Henlopen.
