Property Details

Updated: Aug 23, 2014
House, 3 Bedroom, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8) Queen sleep sofa in Living room.

You will love vacationing with the unobstructed views of the Delaware Bay from every room and deck. Located 150 feet to the water where there are miles of sandy beaches for long walks and water sports. The water views from the house are breathtaking, and the beach is gorgeous, and quiet.

Recently renovated, clean, comfortable, and beautiful. Large kitchen and dining room provide the perfect setting for family meals. Screened in porch with views of the water for outdoor dining enjoyment.

Three bedrooms, each with a private full bathroom and a sliding glass door that leads to its own private deck with water views. Living room with wood-burning fireplace and flat-screen TV with queen-size sleep sofa.

Large Indoor Hot Tub room with two chaise lounges, a desk, and views of the water.

7 acres of beautiful woods are to the left of the house. There are no houses in front.

Drive through the Primehook Wildlife Refuge on your way here and enjoy the solitude.

1 hr. 40 minutes from Annapolis and from the Delaware Memorial Bridge. 2 hrs 30 min from Washington D.C., 2 hrs from Baltimore.

Close to the Lewes/ Cape May Ferry to New Jersey, the Outlet Stores, and great restaurants.

Broadkill Beach is a rare and precious find. It is close to all the activities of the Delaware beaches, yet away from the traffic and the 'maddening crowd', quieter, more private and the beaches are less crowded. The gentle waves of the Delaware Bay make it safer for children and great for swimming. Kayak and bicycle rental and delivery available.

This is THE Location, Location, Location...on Broadkill Beach

  • 5 of 5
What a location! ...... at the end of the road next to a nature preserve .... unobstructed views of the beach. And, all this so close to our home. We achieved travel time of only 1:40 minutes, both to and from Broadkill Beach. What a comfortable house to boot! We liked Barry's (and his daughter's) art throughout the house and easily picked out the tree he drew from just across the chain link fence (it was depicted in one of the plates of his coffee table book).
We enjoyed the local beach store's homemade donuts and fantastic sub sandwiches. We dined at “Cafe Azafran” and “Half Full”. Both were very good and great locations. But mostly we spent our week taking long walks up and down the Broadkill, Fowler and even Slaughter beaches with Reno (our dog). Five of the seven days, there was not a soul within sight on the beaches and Reno was able to run free for hours at a time. Back at your lovely house which is architected just right for fabulous views from all the main living spaces, we enjoyed some good home cooking (well equipped kitchen) and lots of good wine and a couple evenings with the fireplace seeing a log or two. We did use the new outdoor gas grill - thanks for having that.
Again, thanks for sharing your gem on the beach.

A GREAT HOME AWAY FROM HOME EXPERIENCE

  • 4 of 5
My husband, 3 dogs and I enjoyed a wonderful vacation here. Abby, one of the homeowners, was so easy to work with and very accommodating. The home came with everything we needed and was well maintained. The neighborhhood was secluded and nicely cared for and the neighbors were very nice which made our vacation more comfortable.

The views of the ocean/bay were spectactular and the beach, only a short walk from the home, was clean and private. We are avid birders and noted so many beautiful species around the property as well as at the conveniently close beaches, sanctuary and parks.

This home is a great choice for vacationing. We look forward to our next get-a-way here!

Thanks Abby!

Very Awesome Beach House

  • 5 of 5
Abby, your beach house is as you call it...a TOTALLY awesome beach house. Thank you for sharing this unique find. My family stayed here to celebrate my Mom's 84th birthday. It was perfect!! We could even bring our beloved basset hound, Daisee. The house is very open, welcoming, and very relaxing. We spent many hours sitting by the wonderful windows and decks on the so very confortable chairs enjoying the wonderful view of the bay. The solitude of the location of the house is perfect. We enjoyed many walks on the beach looking for shells and beach glass. We loved having dinner at the house and enjoying the enclosed dining deck. Thank you for the wonderful "goodie" bag for Daisee and all the local information on dining to shopping along with your special, handwritten note. We spent time in Lewes and Rehobeth as well as driving around the Wildlife preserve and the local area. Your house was an amazing find which was not only a quiet beach which was dog friendly but even more a gracious and peaceful home that welcomed my darling furry family member. The private beach was a wonderful experience for Daisee who could run and run without a leash. She was in heaven! Thank you for your excellent attention and care you have displayed in the entire rental and vacation experience. We definitely felt like we were home! We look forward to staying with you again very soon. Our best regards....

Sitting here at home miles from the sea shore, I reflect on our week at your special place...

  • 5 of 5
Each morning I was out the door with the poochies for a walk on the beach. Solitude, sand crabs, and sea gulls were our companions until the weekend visitors trickled in on Friday. Chester, Dash and I found the water hose at the base of the stairs to be perfect for a quick rinse off of all things beach related. My husband, who is from up-state NY-not fond of heat, humidity and sand, spent countless hours reading, writing, meditating and drawing, first on the upstairs deck with the ultra comfortable lounge chairs-did I mention that he also napped ?!! When the temps rose later in the week, I found him in the parlor with jazz and a gin and tonic! The view form the desk in the hot tub room provided inspiration for his drawing. One evening, after I made a quick run into Lewes Fish Market, we cooked and grilled up an outstanding, fresh, seafood feast-crab legs, sword fish and oysters. We had a great meal late our first night at Irish Eyes in Milton. With the variety of restaurants between Milton and Rehoboth we were more than satisfied! I was delighted to see the glossy red and sky blue bikes we rented from Meryl, at Lewes Cycle Sport neatly lined up, waiting to share the sunset with us over Prime hook Wildlife Preserve. Meandering through the quiet, eclectic neighborhood that runs for only a few miles along the Bay to the public beach area at the far end, sea breezes and surrounded by natural beauty-lovely! Abby, it is evident that you and the Nemett's have put much careful and thoughtful planning into ones experience at Awesome Beach Dream. From the welcome bag with a personal note, helpful guide books and doggie toys, to the on call handy man-if needed, to the positioning of the "I will never get up from this spot" sofa and chaise, to my personal favorite-the outdoor shower and dressing room. The list continues with the renters shed for beach chairs and such, like new washer and dryer on the bath and bed room level, complimentary shower gel and more tissues than we could use in a year!!! It is rare to find not only a quiet beach which is dog friendly and even more rare a gracious and peaceful home on it that welcomes our furry family members. It has been refreshing to be gifted with the excellent caliber of attention and care you have displayed in the entire rental and vacation experience. You make your guests feel like family!!! Until we visit again...heartfelt thanks and love.

Wonderfully peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I (with our dogs) stayed here for a long peaceful weekend. We were looking for a place to relax and get away from the hustle of daily life. This house fit this bill perfectly. The views were amazing, Abby was great to work with, and the house was extremely comfortable. Loved walking on the beach daily (the dogs loved running in the water) without seeing more than a couple people at most.

I would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting a secluded (yet close to everything) and private vacation. I would come back here anytime.

Thank you Abby for all your help.

Awesome Beach House!!

  • 5 of 5
It was all it’s name says! We loved the time we spent at your dream house. It was a dream come true for all of us to be together on the
beach in such a wonderful home. The walking, shell collecting (many conch shells) and nature observing were phenomenal!! We saw many horseshoe crabs traveling about along with a stingray that had washed up on shore. The weather was wonderful too!

We took many, many walks on the beautiful beach that extended for miles. The few people we met on our adventures on the shore were very friendly! While enjoying morning coffee on the screened porch you can view the water and listened to the waves hit the shore. What could be more relaxing. A couple of us visited the Nassau Valley Winery where the owner asked how we found the treasured secret of Broadkill Beach. It was this site. We were so relaxed we actually forgot the day and date; a sign of an excellent vacation! Others enjoyed golf and shopping that can be found very close by yet it seemed a world away from peacefulness of the house. We drove into the Prime Hook Preserve and hope to hike it next time. We did walk from Beach Plum Preserve at the end of South Bay Shore Drive to the house about 3.25 miles along the beach.

We cooked most meals at the house. However, my son-in-law found the best reuben at Irish Eyes in Milton. As my daughter and he traveled home after vacation they stopped at the Vintage Cafe in Milton for breakfast and said it was outstanding!

Abby quickly got back to us when we were interested in renting. She readily responded to any questions we had prior to our arrival and once we arrived. I am confident anyone that stays at this property will want to return.What you see in the photos is what you will find upon arrival. I can’t thank Abby & her family enough for allowing us to share their treasure with our family including four legged members.

Owner's Response: Thanks Mary and Tom for a wonderful review. We're so glad you loved your stay and shared many of the wonderful treasures that people get to experience by staying at our beach house.

Isn't it amazing how few people there on the beach and whenever we meet someone they're always so nice, it's true. It is a blessings that we continue to be so grateful to own and to share with others.

We're so glad you found us. We look forward to your return when you can also explore the Prime Hook Wildlife Refuge in our backyard. It is truly a nature's paradise.

Thanks for your review, and for expressing so beautifully the wonderful aspects of our little piece of heaven.

Warmly,
Abby, Barry and Diane
