This cozy cottage is surprisingly spacious and as relaxing as a cool summer breeze. A large corner lot gives the feel of privacy while retaining the convenience of being one block from the beach. The beach access is at the end of a road so very convenient and an easy walk from the house. There is a sizable deck with a large outdoor shower. The house also has an all-season room to catch the breezes without the bugs. There are four bedrooms and a den with an unusually comfortable futon. The house can easily accommodate 11 sleepers. It's topped off with an amazing cupola that provides a 360 degree view. Furnished with an understated, casual comfort there are many treasures to discover including antique clocks, many books and a fabulously funky firehouse gas oven complete with griddle. There is no better place to experience the ease and freedom of beach life! Property is pet friendly with a non-refundable pet fee and signed addendum. Owner will do mini weeks (Friday to Monday or Monday to Friday) from September to May. Ask your agent for details.

Our own private beach!
We were very pleased with our rental at Broadkill Beach. The home was large and homey. It had everything you could possibly need. The bedrooms were nice sized. The stove was awesome. The beach was a short walk away. Every time we went to the beach there were only a couple people there. Sometimes we were the only ones. It was like having your own private beach! If you are looking for a very nice home very close to the beach away from all the bright lights and chaos this is for you. Lewes, Rehoboth Beach and other beaches are only a short drive away.
Overall we were pleased
Liked the fact that there were enough chairs for everyone in each room.
Liked the fact that there was enough silverware, glasses, and dishes for the day. In other words, didn't have to wash dishes after every meal.
Liked the deck cover since which kept the floor cooler.
Loved that location of beach to the house.
Loved the quietness of the beach, except when our dog barked because he wanted to play and we weren't throwing the ball fast enough.
Since it is a pet friendly environment, it would have been nice if the entire yard had been fenced so we could have let the dog run off of the leash in the yard.
Disliked the mosquitoes and flies, but that's not your fault.
The lack of closet space was a small problem, but next year we will take hooks to put over the doors. We probably only really noticed it this year because we all had dress cloths to attend a wedding the second weekend.
Dishwasher was sometimes temperamental, but we always managed to get it to work.
We liked it well enough that we reserved for 2 weeks in 2019.
If you want any other information, please feel free to contact me.
See you in 2019.
Thank you for your review! We will pass on the DW information to the owner who is actually considering fencing the front of the yard.
Glad you enjoyed the house overall!
Beautiful beach house
We loved our stay at the Broadkill Writers Resort!! Books on display in every room, plenty of room for the 6 of us, and close proximity to the beach. Took the dogs to the beach every day, and our teens went the the more popular beaches down the coast, just a short ride away. We lived riding our bikes and running through the "main" road of Broadkill, which seemed like it had more foot traffic than cars. We would certainly be happy to go back next year!
Wonderful house and location
This home was greater than expected, plenty of room for 5 adults, 2 preschool age kids and a couple of dogs. So many books, games and well furnished rooms. This is a perfect getaway place, and the neighbors are great(the folks who live there year round). Short walk to the beach tops it off. Enjoy.
Great rental for any time of year!
I have stayed at several rentals in the area and Broadkill Resort is one of the most comfortable and well equiped. The bedrooms are roomy with comfortable mattresses. There is plenty of comfortable seating between the living room and enclosed porch and there is a huge selection of books and games for when you aren't at the beach (which is just a short walk away). If you like to cook there is just about anything you would need to make a good meal and enough dishes to go around. It is also nice to be within easy walking distance of the little store. The fireplace was a nice touch since we were visiting off season. We will most certainly return!
Wonderful family beach house! Has it all!
I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Firstly Jennifer, the owner, was particularly helpful. The location was great and so close for getting to and from the beach. Property was perfect - clean, charming, airy & breezy, large, with loads of nice touches like boogey boards, giant outdoor shower, cupula, super-stocked kitchen, and amazing diner-style griddle/stove. We spent morning and evenings enjoying the fabulous covered porch area! Looking forward to staying in your property again next year Jennifer, thanks for a great holiday!
So happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay!!!
