  • Wonderful Vacation

    "This was the best family vacation that we had. Broadkill Beach is one of Delaware's best kept secrets and selfishly I hope it continues to be that way. This was a fantastic rental to stay in. Right from the start you could tell that the owners took real pride in their home and the location. The entire house was very clean on arrival, the beds were very comfortable, and Wendy had stocked all the supplies one often forgets about when renting (hand soap, paper towels, toilet paper etc). One nice thing is that there is a central vac which was very easy to use to keep the sand that was tracked in under control. Alot of people on other boards will complain about the bugs. Yes, you do need a bug spray (but hey, the house is behind a marsh that is to be expected) but we were able to get away with the non-deet kind. My kids had a fantastic time crabbing off the back dock. They are so easy to catch, we used a net, a fishing pole, and a small cage and we were able to catch them with all three. You can get chicken necks at the Broadkill store. The sunsets over the refuge were incredible and even pictures don't quite do it justice. There were 2 bikes available which we used on a daily basis. The road is flat and it is an easy ride over to the store. Pre-order your sticky buns the day before at the Broadkill Store. They are worth it! Kayaking in the back marsh area is easy. Each kayak could hold an adult and a small child (bring life jacket for child). There are 2 adult life jackets and they were very clean. Where on the east coast can you go to the beach in August without any crowds? Broadkill. Yes, the beach is a bit more "rustic" meaning it isn't heavily groomed daily but a farmer does come several times weekly to pick up dead horseshoe crabs. My kids spent hours and hours playing in the sand, "saving" live horseshoe crabs, floating in the water, flying kites, and making new friends. We did some hiking at the Prime Hook Refuge. You do need the heavy deet spray there. But the birds, the quiet, the paths were beautiful. If you are looking for a non-touristy place to relax, unwind, and spend outdoors then I highly recommend this area!"

    "Awesome place to stay. Very clean house, comfortable accommodations, and practically have the beach to yourself (and family). Kid attractions and boardwalks are reasonable drive away. And the small town of Milton has family things to do too, e.g., kids train ride, movie night, and food truck night on Tuesdays. We'll be going back next summer."

  • Quiet Community and Amazing Beach

    "We stayed at "Summer of '42" after Labor Day while the weather was still warm. We chose this location because it was dog friendly and close to the beach. We literally had the beach to ourselves most of the time. Occasionally someone might walk by or another group might be set up a couple 100 yards away, leaving you in complete serene peace to listen to the waves. It was also a fantastic dog friendly beach and community, which is so rare. The house is really lovely and a 2 min walk to the beach. Skylights allow for tons of light, great beach breezes when weather permits, everything you need for the meal prep, and lots of room for a few people or enough space to accommodate many without being on top of each other. The front screened sleeping porch proved a favorite to watch the neighborhood. The backyard gazebo is a huge bonus. It allowed us to grill and enjoy the hot tub at night or on a rainy day. The accommodations were comfortable and clean and we felt right at home. David was a pleasure to work with the entire time. Unfortunately I had to disturb him with a question when we arrived and he immediately responded and helped us out. A lot of people say call for anything, but he really means it and makes you glad you reached out. I can't rave enough about the location of this rental. The entire Broadkill Beach community is surrounded by a Nature Reserve. Just the drive to and from Coastal Highway provides amazing scenery and opportunities for bird and wildlife watching. Fishing opportunities all around - surf and river. Rehobeth is no more than a 20 min drive if you want touristy options or outlets, Lewes less than that with incredibly charming shops and history and the Cape May Ferry. If you have a day you don't want to spend at the beach - you've got Dogfish Head Brewery within 15 mins, not to mention Mispillian, Evolution, Old Dominion/Fordham and 16 Mile Breweries within a short drive. Nothing better than a fresh growler and a hot tub to ease away any stress. We would definitely recommend this rental and hope to return in the future. We had a fabulous vacation! Sheila T."
