About Karen Marsh

Our families have been vacationing on the East Coast for well over 40 years, and have especially enjoyed spending many summers in Lewes! Lewes is a place that is quaint and within about an hour of our home in Middletown, DE. For our family of five, Lewes Beach has provided our children the opportunity to relax with their friends, while mom & dad don't have to incessantly worry about all the hustle and bustle of larger vacation spots. The kids also enjoy taking a trip to either Cape Henlopen or Rehoboth Beach, depending upon what suits their desires. We hope that you will begin creating similar memories here in Lewes Beach!

Karen Marsh purchased this house in 2014

Why Karen Marsh chose Lewes

Our beach house brings the beach to you and let's you check your worries at the door! We pride ourselves in making our rental properties just like home. That is no different here at the beach! As new owners, we made changes to the house during our first year, including fresh paint throughout, new flooring in the Family/Sun Room and Front Porch, flat screen TVs, and updating the master 1/2 bath. We continue to make updates to the furniture and facilities every year!

What makes this house unique

This vacation getaway allows you to step off the beach, rinse your feet, and relax.

Great house in a great town

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the nicest vacations ever! We had never been to Lewes Beach and we just fell in love with the entire area. The house is great. Very comfortable and has everything you need or want. Nice quiet neighborhood as well. We especially enjoyed the screen porch where we ate all our meals. Very comfy sofas in the back room (wish I had them at home!). A special bonus was being able to see both sunrise and sunset at the beach, which really is only 200 steps (or less). We brought our bikes and rode the Junction & Breakwater trail to Rehoboth Beach one day and then to the state park a few of the other days. We also rode into town each day. This is a great place to ride bikes and you can rent them in town if you don't bring your own. It was also fun to just ride around the nearby neighborhoods in the evenings. Cape Henlopen State Park is a real gem. We have vacationed many times at the Outer Banks in N. Carolina, and we found the Delaware beaches to be every bit as nice. Very friendly people, too. We loved this place and can't wait to come back. Thank you Rob and Karen - we had a great time!

Great family vacation house.

  • 5 of 5

We all greatly enjoyed our week at the Chillax Inn. The owners, Rob and Karen, were incredibly helpful throughout the whole rental and have thought of everything for their guests' enjoyment The cottage is perfectly located being just a short stroll to one of the nicest parts of Lewes Beach. We have rented in Lewes for over 10 years and everyone in the family agreed that this was their favorite of the cottages we have rented. We particularly enjoyed the screened in porch which was perfect for family dinners. Our teenagers liked the back family room which was well equipped with a nice TV and very comfortable couches The gas grill was used frequently as were the beach chairs. The nice outdoor shower was much appreciated after a long day at the beach. The cottage was incredibly clean and comfortable. We hope to return next year.

Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was clean, comfortable and has everything you need for a wonderful vacation. The kitchen is well equipped, the furniture is very comfortable and the beds are worth a thousand Zzzz's. The lay-out of the cottage is great - having both a family room and living room, with nice flat screen TVs, makes entertainment easy. The screen porch and front porch were relaxing places to read and have a glass of wine. The location is wonderful - short walk to the beach, short drive to the State Park and Ferry and either a moderate walk or short drive to the 2nd Street action. The friendly owners were very accommodating and easy to work with. They provide great tips for activities and attractions in the area. We are looking forward to many return trips!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your weekend getaway and really appreciate your kind words and feedback about our vacation home. We have focused upon making the Chillax Inn a place that our guests would feel most comfortable, just like home, and want to return to for future vacations. Being able to share our experiences from this little piece of tranquility is why we chose Lewes Beach, and being able to provide a personal touch is what we take pride in for our guests. We look forward to having you back again! Thanks, Karen & Rob

My husband and I enjoyed our relaxing stay at this home. The owners were very responsive to any questions that we had prior to arrival. The home was very comfortable and made us feel that we were welcomed. The lay out of the home was great; given privacy to all who visited us while we were there. Home is close to Second Street where most of the activity is located. Lewes is just a great family town for all ages. We are looking forward to our stay in 2016.

Great home to spent time with family

  • 5 of 5

My family truly enjoyed are time spent at this home. The new owners were very accommodating answering any questions prior to are arrival and everything was wonderful when we arrived. The home is very comfortable and homey, plenty of room for everyone. Loved the screened in porch especially. The home is very close to the beach, and just a short trip to town and Cape Henlopen park. We are planning on returning next year.

Wonderful house for our Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

My Family stayed here in 2012--before current owners--and it is a great house. Very clean, modern, lots of room and amenities, close to Lewes Beach. Perfect vacation beach house, we plan on staying here again in the Fall of 2015. Have talked to new owners who have updated some aspects but the house was fine as is; and they seem very nice. Great location. Not far from Cape Henlopen where we like to bike to, so great for bicyclists, and the State Park is wonderful to bike around, besides have some of the best beaches on the East Coast.

Owner's Response: Thank you for providing a glimpse of why Lewes is truly a special place to visit. We have also been vacationing in Lewes and other areas of the East Coast, and we really enjoy the relaxing environment it provides our family. The cottage at 4 Camden Avenue seemed like a perfect match for what we are trying to achieve - a relaxing place for small to mid-sized families to get away and feel like they are at home. we are putting on fresh coats of paint, some new furnishings, bed coverings, and some flooring during this winter, in advance of the coming season. We look forward to having you stay in the Fall! Karen & Rob
