Bedrooms 4
Half Baths1
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

Beloved by renters in years past, #1 Addy is back on the market. Located on a street with no through traffic, you will have access to Middlesex’s private beach. The house has been renovated to include skylights, central heating and air, Wi-Fi, two cable TVs, DVD player, new washer and dryer, and an upgraded outside shower. There are three bedrooms and 1 1/2 baths downstairs, one large bedroom, full bath and loft upstairs. Two open decks are favorite lounging areas for morning coffee or evening cocktails. The dining room and two bedrooms give out onto a large screened porch that runs across the back of the house. The established landscaping creates a cool green refuge from the hot summer sun. You will have access to a gas grill, four bicycles, beach chairs and assorted toys, and a hammock. It’s a great place to build your summer memories with family. And in colder months you can get away for a weekend or winter holiday to enjoy the brick fireplace, the Delaware shore’s slower pace, and the beach’s magical winter light. Middlesex Beach is away from the crowds but within a quick bike ride and strolling distance of Bethany's vibrant boardwalk, with shops and restaurants.

About Ann Mills or Tish Mills

Our parents built this house in 1968, making modifications to the structure to ensure plenty of indoor and outside space. It has been a refuge for our family ever since. It was a constant when we were younger and lived in foreign countries -- it was a refuge through those transient years and in through later stages in life. Much care has been given to selecting furniture and art, while maintaining the spirit of the 1960s. Once you arrive you will never want to leave. It has been a great place to relax, spend time with family and friends, cook great meals, and build lasting memories. We recently winterized it, installing central heating and air and upgrading the windows so that we can now enjoy it year round.

Ann Mills or Tish Mills purchased this cottage in 1968

Why Ann Mills or Tish Mills chose Delaware

Our parents rented cottages in Rehoboth and Ocean City in the mid 1960s. They then fell in love with Middlesex Beach and built this cottage in 1968. They are both deceased and the cottage has now been passed down to the next generation. We love it more than ever.

What makes this cottage unique

The pine and bayberry trees in Middlesex Beach create a sense of calm and privacy that is unique to this stretch of the Delaware coast. The private beach means fewer crowds. In some respects Middlesex Beach is frozen in time -- a simpler and more relaxed time.

Relaxed at the "Happy House"

Thank you, Ann again for being so gracious and getting this wonderful home ready for me and my friends. It is such a comfortable welcoming home with everything you could want. Beds are fabulous. With just a short walk to the beach we had the best of beach and peace & privacy at 1 Addy oasis. This is my 2nd visit and hope to return again soon.

Home was excellent. Sufficient bedrooms for meg and I, our children (with spouses), and two granddaughters. Location was excellent: convenient to beach and boardwalk. Beach pass was a welcome benefit. Strongly recommend this as a great place to enjoy the beach.

#1 Addy Rd was a WONDERFUL stay!

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay at #1 Addy Rd! The home is beautiful, and we loved the setting among the shade of the trees at the end of the street, tucked away nicely from the hustle and bustle. Our two teen/pre-teen boys shared the loft and adored it. It gave them a nice spot to escape from the grown-ups in the evenings to watch TV and "hang out". The layout of the downstairs bedrooms is simply wonderful! Such a clever layout with the master in the front of the house having direct access to a toilet/sink, and the two bedrooms in the back of the house on the lower level also having their own toilet/sink. Then, all three share a shower in the middle. While the loft had its own full bathroom. Very nice and easy set up for various family members - provided nice privacy. Also LOVED the outdoor shower. PLENTY of bikes & beach chairs to share. The home and grounds are beautifully maintained. One of our family members noted that it was so nice because it felt like a mix of a beach vacation and a cabin-style vacation in the woods. Such a perfect combo! ALL of the bedrooms have direct access to their own deck. Plenty of games, book, and lovely art to enjoy in this home. NICE set-up downstairs with the open concept between the ample seating in the living room & dining room, while being able to talk to those cooking up something delicious in the small kitchen. Can't gush enough about this home!!! The pictures simply do not do it justice.

The drive to the private beach of Middlesex was a short hop across Coastal Highway. Nice security, easy to park, and courteous staff at the beach. The best part is how very few folks are on the beach. So nice to sit with our family & not be rubbing elbows with the next family. Plenty of room to spread out. Lovely for all three generations that came along on our trip (parents, children, and grandparents).

In addition to how lovely the stay was, the owners are simply marvelous to deal with. Kind, courteous, and promptly responding to any questions. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Your home is lovely, and we appreciate you sharing it with us.

It has everything you need!

  • 4 of 5

This was the second time my family & I stayed at "Camilock", It is a unique beach cottage tucked away under the pine trees of Bethany, It is very comfortable , clean and well stocked from the kitchen to the shampoo and body wash in the shower's. The outside shower is great after a day on the private beach which is guarded and clean, the only drawback is there is no public bathroom available. The location of the house is right between Rehoboth Beach and Ocean City , Assateaque Island state park in MD. is a favorite beach for our grandchildren as the wild horse's walk the beach. The owners are wonderful to work with and get back to you right away if you have questions about the property. I highly recommend this home for your next beach vacation.

Bethany Beach -- just a mile north - has summer concerts on the boardwalk every Saturday night, ice cream parlors and lots of benches to sit on and enjoy the family crowds. Bethany Beach Books is a great place to pick up a mystery novel . Amusement parks are located in both Ocean City and Rehoboth - each about 15-20 minutes away. Boat rentals are close by. The town of Lewes provides great shopping. The adjacent state park is a must see for WWII buffs.
