Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath, sleeps 6

Lovely 2 bedroom, 2 bath cottage, sunroom with water views, large living room, cable and high-speed internet, new kitchen appliances, central AC, oil heat, ceiling fans, two TVs, master bath, fully furnished. Off-street parking and a nice yard with a grill for outdoor cooking. And it's just 60 steps from the beach!

Broadkilll Beach is a hidden gem on the Delaware Bay. Drive through the PrimeHook Wildlife Refuge (check this out!) to a small strip of beach that is The Broadkill. It goes approximately 2 miles in both directions from the main cross street. This is a great place to get your run in. There is only one commercial property that the locals call 'The Mall', where you can get most everything that you might need to enhance your stay. You might feel, at times, that you have the beach to yourself! The people of the area are terrific, friendly and make you feel welcome.

When you need to be near the hustle and bustle of the popular shore points, it's only a short drive away. Wander over rte 16 to the little town of Milton or make your way south on rte 1 towards the beaches of Lewes, Cape Henlopen, Rehoboth, Dewey, and Bethany. Take a 90 minute ferry boat ride on the Cape May/Lewes Ferry out of Cape Henlopen. Spend the day in victorian Cape May, New Jersey. Take your car, bicycle or just walk aboard. There is a trolly on the other side that can take you to town. Get some fresh, right off the boat, scallops at the dockside restaurant at The Lobster House. Check out Morrows Nut House on the boardwalk for some dessert. Of course you have to play some skeeball or you could wait until you get back to Rehoboth to try your hand at that. The SeaShell shop miniature golf always looks fun, back on Rte 1 in Delaware, or maybe you want to check out all of the outlets. Save the outlets for a rainy day as well as the movie theater that is close by too.

For me, a fun day at the beach is always great; Maybe have your morning coffee on the bench overlooking the bay;start in the morning with a walk to look for seashells; ride the waves; rent a paddleboard or soak up some Vitamin D; then a cookout - I can smell the charcoal-maybe some juicy cheeseburgers tonight? and don't forget the smores. On a clear night, look up and see the billions of stars that you won't ever see at home! It's amazing! Open all the windows at night so you can hear the waves while you have the best night's sleep ever! HAVE FUN!!

About Rich

We have been vacationing at the Delaware beaches for over 30 years and never knew about the hidden gem on the bay that is Broadkill Beach. We visited the area with friends and instantly felt at home. We think you'll love it, too!

Rich purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Rich chose Delaware

We love the beach and fell in love with this cottage the moment we saw it. We have vacationed at Broadkill Beach with friends and love the relaxed atmosphere there. The quiet neighborhood is perfect for a family retreat and just three houses off the beach!

What makes this cottage unique

Getting to the cottage is an easy drive since the route takes you away from the shore traffic. The best of both worlds, Broadkill Beach is a quiet and secluded place to relax in the sun, and it's also close to the nightlife, restaurants and shopping of the shore points. Also close by are Cape Henlopen State Park, and the Cape May/Lewes Ferry.

tranquil seaside getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is roomy, with everything you need for a great seaside hangout. If you love quiet beaches and nature you'll love this location. Lewes is quick ride for old-world charm and Rehoboth is a bit farther for all the Touristy kitsch anyone could ask for. Grab some Dogfish beer in Milton and some food before you head to the cabin and relax. We hope to be back soon.

Perfect relaxing vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

This cute beach cottage was the perfect location for our family vacation. We enjoyed the clean and quiet beach just steps from the front door. Our grandchildren could play in the calmer bay waters without the crowds that the ocean beaches often have. The home was clean and family friendly. The outdoor seating area and grill was a nice touch. The owners/visitors to the other houses on the street were friendly. Loved the morning walk down to the Broadkill Beach Store for doughnuts and cinnamon rolls. We did venture into Rehoboth Beach for restaurants and shopping. Highly recommend Chesapeake and Maine the new Dog Fish Brewery restaurant for a fantastic meal- ask for server Becky for a great experience! Also drove to the nearby Lewes Ferry and took the day trip to Cape May, NJ. This was a fun trip and a break from the beach one day. The owners went out of their way to ensure we had a great week and were easy to communicate with.

I would recommend this rental to anyone seeking a quiet relaxing vacation.

This place just keeps getting better!

  • 5 of 5

A truly enjoyable second year for my family. Cottage has everything (location, location, location) and beach is absolutely beautiful! Only left to buy groceries and to visit the farmer's markets at the 16 Mile Brewery and the Dogfish Brewery. Forced to sample a pint or two ;-) while there. My teenagers, daughter and son, 19 & 16, asked to come back already. My wife and I enjoyed the peace and quiet strolling down the shore, folllowing the crabs at night with a flashlight was also fun for all.
