**Beautiful Carriage Home in Lewes, Delaware**

After years of vacationing in Dewey Beach, we bought this lovely (new) carriage home in 2005. Our home is spacious with four bedrooms and a loft (which doubles as a second family/living room). Our home features two full bathrooms and one half bath. We have two eating areas on either side of a large kitchen(fully equipped). It is an open floor plan with plenty of room to either hang out with your group or have time to yourself. And my favorite part is our deck; a lovely place to watch the sun set and enjoy a drink after a hard day on the beach.

We are right off of route 1, close to the action, but not too close. Lewes Beach and Cape Henlopen State Park, are approximately 4 miles away. We have awesome tax-free outlet shopping right down the street(rt. 1), tons of restaurants and activities galore.

Cape Henlopen State Park is an awesome beach/state park, complete with swimming, biking, hiking, kayaking, disc golf, and eco tourism.

Community Features:

*Community Pool and Pool House

*Very close to the Tanger Outlets in Rehoboth

*Close to many awesome restaurants

*8 minutes from Cape Henlopen State Park/Beach

*10 miles from Sports at the Beach in Georgetown

*30 minutes from Dover Downs Int'l Raceway

**Please note, we are on the Bay Side of Route 1 in Lewes, outside of the Historic District**

About Kara

We (Kara and Marwa) have been friends since kindergarten and have owned this home since 2005. We are Delaware natives and love living 1.5 hours from the beach (and it is the 'beach,' not the shore!).

Kara purchased this townhome in 2005

Why Kara chose Delaware

We chose to buy in Lewes because 1. it's beautiful, 2. it is the oldest town in the first state, rich with history, 3. it is close enough to everything you would want in a beach area without being right on top of the madness.

What makes this townhome unique

Our home is right off of Route 1 in the Eagle Point community (behind Grand Slam Grotto's). Our location is unique in the fact that we are close to all of the action, yet it's quiet enough to relax.

Our home is bayside, about an eight minute drive from Cape Henlopen. For you sports enthusiasts, we are 10.9 miles or 16 minutes, from Sports at the Beach. We are four miles from Lewes Beach and five miles from Cape Henlopen State Park; although you are welcomed to bike there, you really do need to drive, as you are crossing Route 1(highway).

Great property and great owners!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I LOVED this house! We visit the Rehoboth/Dewey area every year for an Autism fundraiser which is on a Friday. We always have difficulties finding a rental since houses flip on Saturday, however, the owner, Kara, was very accommodating and allowed us to begin our stay on a Friday. Kara was a pleasure to work with- she was quick to respond and made sure our stay was fantastic. The house was large, clean, had a community pool, and there was no traffic in the development so my children could ride their bikes and go for walks. It was a short drive to Cape Henlopen and Lewes, which was great. We will definitely stay there again!

Excellent vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

We never plan our vacation around base-ball but we did this year and it was wonderful. Our Grand-son played a tournament at "sports on the beach". This carriage home suited all of our needs. We had 9 people stay and we had plenty of room. When we walked in we were surprised at how big it actually was. Sometimes pictures don't do a place justice but it was everything the pictures showed and more. We enjoyed the house, the community, the pool and our vacation. Would recommend this house to anyone wanting a great vacation rental.

Happy family vacation

  • 4 of 5

4 stars + The house was plenty big for us, grandparents, children and grandchildren. Owner called us the day we were to arrive and let us know that the microwave was broken and could be replaced the same day in the evening and it was. Kudos for that. A picture of the pool would be nice to see beforehand, but it is very nice and in close walking distance, we went 2 or 3 times a day with the girls. The reason I am not giving 5 stars is because me youngest adult daughter joined us Friday evening around 10:30 pm. No pets are allowed and that is acceptable, and I had noticed that there was pet food dishes in the pantry and a leash in our bedroom, but did not think out of the box and the next morning my daughter came downstairs in a full blown allergy attack. She suffered all day Saturday and Sunday morning as we were leaving. So, if you have a child/adult with allergies, please bring medication along to help you through this.

Lots of space

  • 4 of 5

The property was as pictured and the owners were accomodating. Property is in a good location only a short drive from the beaches and Lewes Ferry. We only had a short stay and had some rainy weather, so we did not get to use the pool. The complex was nicely laid out and in a peaceful area away from the main roads. Shopping and restaurants were just a short drive away, and Grotto pizza just around the corner. We enjoyed the state park beach and took the ferry over to Cape May for the day and really did enjoy both the Delaware beaches and Jersey shore. Overall an enjoyable place to stay with TONS of space. The only reason this property fell short of 5 stars: the carpets needed a good cleaning or possibly replacement with more beach friendly flooring, some of the pillows and one of the comforters should be replaced. The listing recommends bringing your own linens, which we did. We would stay again if we were in the area.

Townhouse review

  • 3 of 5

The house was decent, there were a few things that were broken, like the DVD player and TV remote. Also, the bedrooms upstairs do not have curtains, only old blinds that didn't close all the way. The street lights are extremely bright right outside the windows, so it was like daylight during the night. We went off season, so I don't have any info/comment on the pool or proximity to the beach.

Owner's Response: Hi Karen! Thank you so much for letting me know about the TV and DVR remotes; I was unaware they weren't working. I will change the batteries ASAP. And of course, I cannot wait to replace the chair in the living room. :) And thank you for letting me know about the blinds. I don't think I ever thought about how it was upstairs with the streetlights, so I appreciate your feedback! I'm going to change them out. Thank you again!
