About Ryan Cecil
I am an airline captain and ex-military aviator who grew up in Delaware, but have lived all over the world. This property has been in my family for over 40 years and I have enjoyed spending my summers here since as long as I can remember. Anything I can do to make your stay more enjoyable will be my pleasure. I have a jet boat and often take friends out on the water to do some wakeboarding, tubing or waterskiing. If I'm not out flying, I should be right across the street at my parent's house. My parents, Dick and Lynn Cecil, are extremely friendly always available as well if you need anything. I'm also fluent in French - je parle français.
Ryan Cecil purchased this House in 1970
Why Ryan Cecil chose Lewes Beach (East of Canal)
Lewes beach is the crown jewel of the Delaware beach scene. My family has been coming here for three generations and it's only getting better. I have friends from all over the world who have fallen in love with Lewes with its lovely victorian houses and upscale restaurants, bars and shopping. It's the oldest and most charming town in the state with a unique history.
What makes this House unique
I love sitting on the built-in bench on the corner of the wrap-around deck upstairs. It's the perfect place to catch the lovely bay breeze and fabulous views. It's a great place to just chill.

Relaxing and comfortable
We had a great experience in Lewes and the rental was perfect for our needs. Would definitely stay again.
Can't beat the location .. gazing, listening at the marsh . A block to the beach .. seagulls , the rythym of the tides
We enjoyed our visit. House was within walking distance of the beach. We had everything we needed.
The house was large enough that everyone had space. Open and airy. Good air conditioner Kitchen stocked well enough for our purposes to cook or we were able to make do. Just a short drive to our favorite restaurants and ice cream places. Was able to host additional family members who could not spend the night to the beach for a day plus a cookout. It didn't take long before we all were calling it home. Wi Fi worked great. The little one enjoyed her TV shows while waiting for the next event to occur. Look forward to next summer at the beach. Perhaps we will have a two week vacation
rian's lovely place
Great place to stay with my family.
We loved our stay!
My family and I had such a wonderful time staying at Ryan's place. It was perfect proximity to the quiet beach and the screened-in porch served a perfect location for game nights, safe from mosquitoes. It was very convenient that Ryan and family provided linens and bath towels as most rentals require you to provide your own. We really enjoyed the property and town and plan on returning next year, maybe well rent the full house! Ryan was always prompt in responding to my questions, even after the stay. I believe that this has been my best HomeAway rental experience due to Ryan's helpful demeanor and the wonderful condition of the rental property! I highly recommend this property and renting from Ryan and family!
Superb location for terrific family holiday
We enjoyed this property for nearly five weeks. All the basics are here--including brand new beds, cute beach themed linens and a screened in porch. The kitchen and baths are dated, but function beautifully. With the property being about 200 steps to the sand, we could not have been happier. If you are looking for boardwalks, loud music, parking problems, crowded beaches and big surf this is NOT the place for you.
Our family enjoyed quiet beaches, beautiful sunsets, kayak rides, ferry trips to Cape May, dolphin watching (this was a highlight of the trip--use Groupon to make it affordable), sunburns, ice cream and BBQ nights.
The Cecil family is very responsive to your every need.
Thanks for the memories.
Lewes has it all. A lovely and uncrowded beach that's safe for young children with no big waves and a calm bay perfect for sailing, fishing and water skiing. It's probably the most charming beach town on the east coast with well preserved and restored victorian houses, excellent eateries and quaint shops. You can easily get around on foot or by bicycle. The Cape Henlopen State Park is one mile down the road with excellent nature trails, biking trails and body surfing
