About Tina Bogia & Mark Armour

Wilmington residents, we just LOVE our beach house. It's the perfect location for us -- just a stone's throw to the beach, quiet enough to spend time with family and friends yet close enough to downtown when we want to enjoy the restaurants and nightlife.

Tina Bogia & Mark Armour purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Tina Bogia & Mark Armour chose Lewes Beach (East of Canal)

We purchased this home for the location ... it literally has it all! Our first vacation at the beach last summer was one of the best our family has ever had!

Comfortable beach home

  • 5 of 5

Great location, a block to the beach and a short ride to Lewes' great shops and restaurants! We had a terrific week, and were away from all the traffic on Route 1. The house is very comfy, and had a nice yard for our dog to run around.

Cottage Fun

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time! The house was old but very nice. Reminded us of our childhood vacations. Plenty of room for everyone and a short walk to the beach. We are interested in next year!

We were disappointed that there was no outdoor shower, but we survived. Maybe next year the shower will be added. Weather was great, a few storms in the evening, but sunshine every day!

Owner's Response: Suzanne, Thank you so much for the feedback, we really appreciate it. Like you ... I love taking showers outside at the beach -- this will definitely be a priority project in the fall. Hope to see you again next year!

Overall great place....would definitely recommend and would certainly return.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great week in Lewes...and staying on Cedar was perfect. The beach is so accessible. With little kids, we many times had to run back for something forgotten and it was not an issue. The house provides for a beach umbrella and beach chairs, which was great. We also used the bikes for short trips around the town.

The house was good too...air conditioning in the 2 downstairs bedrooms (unfortunately) was non existent but we were alerted to that and brought extra fans which helped. The kitchen is fully equipped. We used the outdoor grill one night also. Bathrooms were very clean and lots of hot water!

The hostess could not have been more accommodating - thanks!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much! Glad you had a good time. Good news -- air conditioning for our downstairs will be installed by summer 2017!

Location, location, location

The best thing about this house is the location, just a half block to the beach. The house is older and doesn't have many of the amenities newer houses have. We knew that going in, but there were several major issues that hampered our enjoyment. First, although the house is advertised as air conditioned, it is not central air and several of the bedrooms had no window units or ceiling fans and there was only one portable fan in the house. It was a very hot week and it made for difficult sleeping. The upstairs was much cooler and wasn't a problem.

The other issue was the lighting. The downstairs bedrooms and the front room had no adequate lighting, only a few small lamps. If you wanted to read downstairs in the evening, it was very difficult.

The decor is dated but the owners seem to be very new and will hopefully make some updates in the next few years. Kitchen was well equipped and we appreciated having some paper products left for us. It was also nice to be able to access their garage and use their beach chairs, umbrellas and bikes. There were supposed to be 2 tvs but there was only one and it was upstairs. Good selection of DVDs. We loved being able to bring our dog!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the feedback -- it is really appreciated. Yes, this was the first year renting our property and we learned so much thanks to our guests. Three things must be changed for our 2017 guests: ceiling fans with lighting will be installed in bedrooms, air conditioning wall units will also be installed on first floor and some other minor upgrades.

Enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5

I was a little unsure about booking the property since it had no reviews, but I am glad I did. This is your typical older beach house that I love. Great location to the beach and close to other attractions like Cape Henlopen and downtown Lewes. To get to the 2nd floor there is a spiral staircase. It's easier to take your stuff up on the outside stairs.I was a tad disappointed there was no tv downstairs as everyone was always upstairs when I was in the kitchen cooking so it was a little lonely.
