Last summer's first guests say it BEST!

I just wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic time at your home this past week. We caught 14 large crabs (we threw back twice that amount) and had a wonderful and relaxing time. Your place is really a perfect blend of beach and comforts of home. I think being on the canal affords many more opportunities for recreation than beachfront. Thanks again for the use of Sea Glass.

About The Owner

A place where the sun and the sand and the sea meet. My dream was to live within earshot of the waves and watch my children play and grow up in this special place. I have wonderful memories of my family catching crabs on the dock, kayaking on the canal just below our outside screened living room and playing in the surf of North Shores. The Historic twin WWII gunnery towers and Cape Henlopen are a short stroll up the Beach. Now it is time for me to share this special place with others. Come to Sea Glass and experience my kind of peace and quiet!

The Owner purchased this house in 1993

Why The Owner chose Delaware

There is a history here..a lovely home was on this site when I bought the house. I fell in love with the location just north of the Boardwalk and just south of the wilderness of Gordon's Pond, the Cape Henlopen and the Historic Towers. Wide uninhabited stretches of beach, a wildlife preserve and miles of natural waterways sold me on this special place. By September my family finally stayed in our 'NEW' house at the beach! Shortly after we explored the son became sick. We found out later he was allergic to the house. It took just a few weeks to decide what to do. I met with several contractors who just told me to demolish the house..I had no part of that and contacted a HOUSE MOVING company. In the end the house was donated to create Delaware's first Habitat for Humanity... the house was to became a home for someone else and we broke 'Sand' for a new house in December the next May..we welcomed our first guests to our new home. Just in time for the Summer!!

What makes this house unique

A unique benefit of a stay at Sea the sense of being so removed from the world. You can get lost watching the harbor and the heron from your bedroom or the porch, enjoy the towering pine lined streets. You can spend time walking or biking the trials to the highest vista on the Atlantic between Hattaras and Cape Cod. Enjoy picking up shells and bird watching or wading in the water. The North Shores have been the subject of gifted photographer Kevin Flemming for years. You can walk the historic beaches dawn to sunset with unobstructed views seldom seen on the coast.You can stargaze on our beach! Perfect setting for your friends & family vacation. Solitude is tough to find in a resort will find it here!

Rehoboth is a Jewel of the Atlantic. A few hours from 3 majoyr cities..the quaint cottages, stately Beach homes new and old, wonderful resturants, concerts , community activities and shopping are set against the backdrop if gardens and tree lined streets of this retreat community. It is unlike any coastal town in the entire North Atlantic.

In the off season it isn't uncommon to see a rare albino deer walking down the road to the beach! For just a day here will change your outlook.. Nature's gift of Peace and Quiet..except for those beautiful waves crashing on the beach.

Serene family beach retreat in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

Our multigenerational family (aging from 3-78 years old) stayed at the wonderful Seaglass home in August 2016. We loved everything about the home -- it was clean, warmly appointed, comfortable and cozy with every possible need thought of in advance. I'm a professional chef and enjoyed cooking with family in the open kitchen, which was stocked perfectly with all the supplies we needed. When we weren't at the close-by private beach, we were lounging in or by the salt water pool and enjoying the woodsy private setting. The beautiful, large screened in porch was a wonderful place to spend an early morning or evening, reading, or doing puzzles, or simply enjoying the beautiful, serene canal. The owner was gracious, easy to work with and helpful with wonderful in-town recommendations and generously offering all sorts of beach accessories. We truly enjoyed our family vacation and look forward to returning.

Simply Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

This beach house was such a treat for us! The layout is absolutely fabulous & it is beautifully decorated. There are many separate areas throughout the house & property where you can gather together (pool, screened porch, deck, large kitchen/dining room, living room, family room, etc.), or retreat for a quiet nap. We will definitely be returning next year!!!

Perfect for Family Gatherings

  • 5 of 5

The property has many great features, including a large kitchen, a pool, close proximity to the beach (about a 10-15 minute walk) and, our family's favorite, a fantastic covered porch overlooking the canal, where we spent many hours conversing, reading and simply chilling. A large dining room table made it easy for all 12 of us to sit down at the table and dine together. There were a couple of minor issues when we arrived that the owner resolved quickly. We had a tremendous time and I certainly would recommend.

Run, Don't walk away from Sea Glass!

  • 1 of 5

We selected this listing based on the VRBO description as to the owner's personal attention to maintenance and cleanliness & justified the weekly rental (which was significantly higher than similarly sized/featured properties). I did not arrive at the property until after dark on check in day. Our family arrived 5:10 as per the contract. Upon my arrival, I was shocked at the condition of the home relative to the accolades described in the listing (which has since been updated to delete content concerning meticulous attention and pride given to the condition, cleanliness & maintenance of the home). We filled 1 1/2 kitchen bags with open snacks, cookies, cereals and garbage that was left kitchen cabinets. Significant staining to stairway and hall carpeting and red stains on bedding were noted.There were many burned out bulbs throughout, including the foyer light which had only 1 of 6 bulbs lit (owner indicated that she did not like the foyer well lit). Dirt/debris (wrappers, food crumbs, bugs and leaves) was visible around furniture and windowsills were dusty and littered with dead bugs. A bathroom drawer was filled with loose hair & hair ties. A toilet was running constantly (we fixed), one shower did not have water (owner fixed). We reported these conditions to the owner within 24 hours of arrival via call and e-mail per the contract. I told the owner that in my opinion the listing significantly misrepresented the cleanliness, maintenance condition of the property.The care taker (who is also the landscaper, maintenance man and whose wife is the housekeeper) addressed the shower issue.I pointed out maintenance & cleanliness issues, but did not feel proper attention could be given to these items without disrupting our cherished family vacation. Enough time had been spent to document & report the conditions. We also found a bloody paper towel in the Cabana room bed & mulch and yard debris clogging the shower drain.The newer grill was coated with layers of burned food that took time and effort to make it usable. The home is VERY damp! The owner accused our family for being too critical and having unreasonable expectations. We have never encountered a property with any significant issues (much less multiple unsavory conditions) or an owner unwilling to accept negative feedback for truth, with a condescending tone blaming us for not making a more informed decision about the home by watching the virtual tour. Sea Glass - over promises & under delivers!

Owner's Response: Every guest is entitled to beautiful family vacation in a clean, comfortable home and we deliver our best effort to each guest. This guest threaten to post a negative review if I didn't appease her demands. She filed a complaint & review with her inflated/after the fact observations the day after her security deposit was returned . The bulk of this review is unsubstantiated. A total of 9 phone calls, 48 emails and actions on my part were associated with this traveler renting my home last summer. 27 hours after Check In, this guest discovered a lack of water to one of 6 showers. A valve had been mistakenly turned off while servicing our outdoor shower. My staff was there the same evening and to address a her minor observations made in that call. The water was was quickly restored. The traveler then denied experiencing any problems and refused to allow him to attend to issues she reported to me. I value the legitimate feedback of my guests and make every effort to quickly remedy any situation. I doubt that any home owner could have appeased a guest's concerns so promptly. After sending my reply to her complaint; VRBO considers the case closed. "Dear Joan, Thank you for your prompt response. We have made thorough notes of your comments and explanation of this unfortunate situation and now consider this case closed. At this time your account is still in good standing." VRBO further makes this statement regarding this particular review. "VRBO staff cannot investigate the accuracy of statements made in a review, as the content is solely the opinion of the author. The Review Guidelines state the following regarding this point: "Reviews submitted by a user are the subjective opinions of the user who posted the content.

Mean spirited reviews are "FACT of LIFE " for VRBO Owners who are NOT anonymous!

We showed up an hour earlier ( at 4 pm ) as the owner said it would probably be ready by then and she told us to come on in as she was leaving. The place was not clean in many ways ( carpets with stains, light bulbs out throughout ( entry chandelier has 7 bulbs with only one working ). Bathrooms and Kitchen also not very clean. It was clear to us the owner had tried to clean the place herself. In fact, we said to her that the pool was dirty and she said she would have the pool company come out to clean the next day but only she came out to clean it ??

But it gets worse. A mirror fell off a bathroom vanity when simply opening it and almost caused my daughter harm. The house was not maintained at all ( poor condition including beds, walls, couches, etc. ).

Then after we leave and the entire family of 9 agree the place was a ripoff with a nasty owner, when it came time to get my deposit back ( which I have yet to receive ) she puts together an email claiming that she is charging us $250 for early arrival and tried to blame the condition of the house on us coming an hour earlier ( which remember she said was okay the day we arrived ) as well as other stuff she came up with attempting to steal my deposit. Overall impression, the house is not well maintained and the owner is either crazy, desperately poor, unethical or a combination thereof. Also, the pictures are deceiving. One bedroom is literally behind the garage you can't get to it from the main house but rather walk outside through the garage and it's in the basement and very dark and damp there. STAY AWAY FROM THIS HOUSE ( unless you want to be ripped off and stay in a dirty place with a nasty thief of an owner ).

Owner's Response: Paul A. - VRBO- member since 2015 gives ALL properties 1 Star scores..citing cleaning. He really needs a FULLY Staffed 5 Star Hotel & Laundry! The allegation the security deposit was withheld is patently false. Paul & his large group descended on my home & disrupted critical final stages of while the cleaning crew had clearly not finished their work. July 1st, I was present when Paul A's several carloads of guests arrived 1 1/2 hour early early. We are in the Pines & quick storm had blown some pine needles in the pool. I was cleaning the debris in the pool as they hauled huge duffle bags of dirty laundry in the house and started washing! I graciously accommodated their unscheduled early arrival , asking my clearly upset Staff to finish as best they could. Our guests concerns/feedback are important and are taken very seriously. Great care and attention to detail ensure guests a wonderful vacation experience. I provide potential guests with as much information about my VRBO home as possible and offer them a chance to preview the house which, in this case, may have prevented this disappointing review. Our beach house is decorated & faithfully depicted on VRBO in picture & video. My Staff: a professional cleaning , service & pool staff. Check In: Time 5:30 PM and policies are strictly enforced.We accommodate early arrival requests (in advance) IF we can arrange additional staff to prepare the house. All my guests are welcome at the community beach club facilities anytime before Check In. We tell arriving guests "If a staff vehicle is in the drive - please do not enter the premises - the house is not ready." Prior to receiving our guests, my most senior staff member completes a walk through of the house. Any concerns of this guest were handled immediately. July 4th 2pm - 3 DAYS into his stay; Paul emailed "send in professional cleaners to get this place properly cleaned ASAP." Staff and carpet cleaners were scheduled, Paul refused to let them clean. They found nothing of note at check out . The assumption I would withhold $250 of the deposit is total fabrication. The deposit is returned after all charges associated with the guest’s stay are received from various sources, e.i. Early Check IN, extra beach, chairs & umbrellas from the HOA The return of the security deposit is outlined in the lease signed by renter and owner and all parties are expected to abide by the terms of the lease. Thanx 4 reading my response, Joan,

Sea Glass

Our large family enjoyed staying in this spacious home. We loved the porch overlooking the canal and spent lots of time there. The kayaks were fun and came with the house. We also loved the pool which was a main reason in choosing this house.

We would certainly come again.
