About Jason Matthews

Jason grew up spending summer vacations at Lewes beach and we now enjoy spending our own vacations here with our boys.

Jason Matthews purchased this house in 2006

Why Jason Matthews chose Lewes

We enjoy the charm of Lewes and the relaxed feel it offers for low-key family time at the beach and in the community, while also offering other amenities and forms of entertainment a short distance away.

What makes this house unique

This property has been in Jason's family for many years and when we designed and rebuilt the current home several years ago, we did so with families in mind, making it a place where extended family could gather and relax together as well as providing space for quiet respites. It has proved to serve us well in this regard and it's proximity to the beach and biking on Bay Ave are a huge bonus with our children.

Great Place to Stay on Lewes Beach!

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay on Lewes Beach! My family was looking for a beach house to rent while we were in Lewes for a wedding a couple weeks ago and this place was the perfect place. We loved the open floor plan and the spacious bedrooms. Would definitely recommend.

Wonderful, clean, spacious home!

  • 5 of 5

Rented this home while at Lewes for my daughters wedding. Was absolutely perfect! All the girls in the wedding party got ready in the house and it was a perfect setting. Plenty of room and everybody was very comfortable. Was wonderful for all our friends and family that stopped by. Could not ask for a better setting! Close to the beach and all restaurants. Would definitely rent again!

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

All of us (three generations) loved this spacious, attractively furnished, clean, and comfortable home close to the beach. (One granddaughter, upon arrival, announced, "This is my dream house!") We took full advantage of the well-equipped kitchen--including the Belgian waffle-maker--and gathered on the big sectional sofa to watch the Olympics each evening. The beach is very near, and we went many times during the week; the two granddaughters, five and seven, enjoyed the gentle waves of the bay, sand-castling, and playing with neighbor children. Our short street and the street between the road and beach were great places for them to ride their bikes. Activities included the Cape May ferry; exploring Lewes (excellent meal at Striper Bites, followed by an outdoor concert, and A Touch of Italy for a fine lunch); the Zwaanendael Museum; a very interesting display by the Historical Society about the Beebe brothers, who founded the Beebe Hospital; going to Rehoboth for the boardwalk and the Jungle Gym water park; and a round of par-three golf. It was always restful to return to the house and its many delightful areas, including a study where some work was done, and a third-floor room which the girls used for building a fort, playing dress-up, and watching videos. The dining table sat all eight of us, and we appreciated the extra card table and chairs, where the girls drew and colored, and we all worked on jigsaw puzzles. Jason was very helpful in answering questions before our arrival, and we recommend this house very highly.

Beautiful home in an ideal location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed staying in this spacious, well decorated single home a half block from the Lewes shoreline. Each room was spacious and clean, the kitchen was well stocked, and the propane fireplace insert was fabulous, heating the great room up within minutes. There are many other amenities--a gas grill, washer and dryer, a porch or balcony on every level and a great loft from which you can see the beach! An added bonus--towels and linens were provided, and I was grateful to not have to bring my own. We will be back here to rent again!

Beach Access/Info:

The house is located on Camden Ave which is a side street off of Cedar Ave which runs the length of Lewes Beach. The beach (which is an easy 2 min walk) is more or less 'private' to those staying on Lewes beach as the closest public parking area is over 1 mile away. Also, the beach is large and great for kids as the waves from the Delaware Bay are much smaller than the Atlantic Ocean.

Downtown Historic Lewes:

Second Street has unique, charming shops and a variety of restaurants to choose from. The downtown area also includes historic landmarks, waterfront access, museums, parks, and community events.


Options for biking abound; from a leisurely ride down Bay Ave to more long-distance rides on the bike paths that connect Lewes, Reboboth and Cape Henlopen State Park. Fishing opportunities are plentiful as well. You can surf-fish right off Lewes beach anytime in the off season and during designated hours in the summer. Further, there are piers, inlets, and charter fishing opportunities all within 1-2 miles of the house. For water sports, kayak and paddle board rentals are available through outfitters in Lewes. Cape Henlopen State Park is nearby as well, accessible by bike or car. It offers numerous outdoor activities of its own, including ocean access, hiking, frisbee golf, basketball, playgrounds, and observation towers and other landmarks from WWII.

Nearby Attractions:

Rehoboth Beach is a short drive away and offers the traditional boardwalk activities & excitement. Rehoboth is also home to many popular outlet retailers, providing entertainment for the avid or recreational shopper.
