Last summer's first guests say it BEST!

I just wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic time at your home this past week. We caught 14 large crabs (we threw back twice that amount) and had a wonderful and relaxing time. Your place is really a perfect blend of beach and comforts of home. I think being on the canal affords many more opportunities for recreation than beachfront. Thanks again for the use of Sea Glass.

North Shores Private Community Beach & Clubhouse

Car: Necessary

North Shores is a family oriented community with a Yacht Basin & Harbor just off the Rehoboth-Lewes Canal. It is complete with fishing and crabbing piers, Kayaking & paddleboarding are very popular directly off our dock! A playground is also part of the family activities in the community. Less than a mile north of Rehoboth's famous Boardwalk. The amusement park rides are a good old fashion 60 cents! Experience the beach activities in Dewey Beach by hopping the Jolly Trolley for a family friendly ,inexpensive 'must do' excursion!

BIKING is Big in North SHores.. we are the base of the new bike trail which leads to the Historic WWII barracks of Henning Point. It is an EZ trail to walk or bike for all family members. See the spectacular natural settings that have provided surfer, sun worshipers, photographers, birdwatchers and families with the best coastal experiences. So much FUN!!

When looking for the best sites for sunsets..try the Dewey Beach area or an excursion by boat in the Heart of Lewes for a breathtaking cruise the whole family will enjoy.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: A place where the sun and the sand and the sea meet. My dream was to live within earshot of the waves and watch my children play and grow up in this special place. I have wonderful memories of my family catching crabs on the dock, kayaking on the canal just below our outside screened living room and playing in the surf of North Shores. The Historic twin WWII gunnery towers and Cape Henlopen are a short stroll up the Beach. Now it is time for me to share this special place with others. Come to Sea Glass and experience my kind of peace and quiet!

Why the Owner Chose Rehoboth Beach, DE, USA:
There is a history here..a lovely home was on this site when I bought the house. I fell in love with the location just north of the Boardwalk and just south of the wilderness of Gordon's Pond, the Cape Henlopen and the Historic Towers. Wide uninhabited stretches of beach, a wildlife preserve and miles of natural waterways sold me on this special place. By September my family finally stayed in our 'NEW' house at the beach! Shortly after we explored the house..my son became sick. We found out later he was allergic to the house. It took just a few weeks to decide what to do. I met with several contractors who just told me to demolish the house..I had no part of that and contacted a HOUSE MOVING company. In the end the house was donated to create Delaware's first Habitat for Humanity... the house was to became a home for someone else and we broke 'Sand' for a new house in December ...by the next May..we welcomed our first guests to our new home. Just in time for the Summer!!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
A unique benefit of a stay at Sea Glass..is the sense of being so removed from the world. You can get lost watching the harbor and the heron from your bedroom or the porch, enjoy the towering pine lined streets. You can spend time walking or biking the trials to the highest vista on the Atlantic between Hattaras and Cape Cod. Enjoy picking up shells and bird watching or wading in the water. The North Shores have been the subject of gifted photographer Kevin Flemming for years. You can walk the historic beaches dawn to sunset with unobstructed views seldom seen on the coast.You can stargaze on our beach! Perfect setting for your friends & family vacation. Solitude is tough to find in a resort community..you will find it here! Rehoboth is a Jewel of the Atlantic. A few hours from 3 majoyr cities..the quaint cottages, stately Beach homes new and old, wonderful resturants, concerts , community activities and shopping are set against the backdrop if gardens and tree lined streets of this retreat community. It is unlike any coastal town in the entire North Atlantic. In the off season it isn't uncommon to see a rare albino deer walking down the road to the beach! For just a day here will change your outlook.. Nature's gift of Peace and Quiet..except for those beautiful waves crashing on the beach. Last summer's first guests said it best... I just wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic time at your home this past week. We caught 14 large crabs (we threw back twice that amount) and had a wonderful and relaxing time. Your place is really a perfect blend of beach and comforts of home. I think being on the canal affords many more opportunities for recreation than beachfront. Thanks again for the use of Sea Glass.
