Property Details

  • Bedrooms 3
  • Sleeps 12
  • Baths 3
  • Minimum Stay 2 - 7 Nights
  • Price$250 - $500 per Night
  • Property Description This lovely three-level, contemporary home is situated just a short block back from a quiet beach that's reminiscent of the movie classic 'Summer of '42'. If you're looking for a quiet, relaxing vacation away from the traffic and hectic pace of Rehoboth, Dewey, Ocean City, and other nearby Atlantic beaches, Broadkill Beach will delight you. While best suited for a party of nine, the house can accommodate up to 12 people.
  • The road into Broadkill passes a championship public golf course. It then winds through the Primehook nature preserve, a birdwatcher's and nature lover's paradise -- putting you back in time to an era where tranquility and open space still exist. The preserve with its pristine waterways for you to explore, is a favorite with kayakers and canoeists. The road ends in an inviting development of charming homes with a single road that parallels the beach. Set back from the road behind a lovely garden, the house is on a double lot. It's surrounded by trees, affording ample privacy.
  • Set back from the road behind a free-spirited garden of wild flowers and cacti, the house is on a triple lot surrounded by trees, affording ample privacy. The main living level includes a modern kitchen, the second bedroom with its South West decor, a full bath, and an expansive great room featuring cathedral ceilings, sky lights, a wet bar and fireplace. Through sliding glass doors, the great room opens onto an enclosed sleeping porch with expansive windows that provide the best birds eye view of Broadkill's famous home town 4th of July Parade. The screened porch with a fold out queen size sofa,rocking chairs, and coffee table also provides an inviting and quiet place for persons to enjoy their early morning coffee or use our wireless Internet access to catch up on their latest emails.
  • A flight of stairs with open views towards the beach leads up to a master bedroom suite with a king-size bed, a sitting area, a private deck that affords views of Broadkill's spectacular sunsets, and two skylights that provide enchanting vistas of the myriad of stars visible on a clear night. Lie in bed and test your ability to identify the stars and constellations; or simply delight in the view.
  • Our spacious ground floor with plenty of light includes a cozy third bedroom with a queen sized bed, a full bath, a separate sitting area, and a den with a fold-out sofa, Captains bed (single) and a comfortable T.V. /gaming area. The ground floor, which can be closed off for privacy, is perfect for a second family or elderly parents having difficulty climbing stairs.
  • Behind the house is a large screened gazebo, secluded by trees and equipped with a hammock, a hot tub that easily accommodates four (fabulous on cooler evenings!), a gas grill, and a large octagonal picnic table for casual dining. Between the gazebo and the main house is an enclosed outside shower with a separate dressing area.
  • The beach is reached by a charming wooden walkway over the dunes. Sheltered by Cape Henlopen on the south and Cape May on the north, its waters are relatively calm. And best of all, the beach is rarely, if ever, crowded. Families build campfires on the beach; and well-behaved pets are welcome.
  • While Broadkill Beach is 'away from the madding crowd', it is far from being isolated. Broadkill's general store is just a short walk from the house, and carries a little bit of everything including wonderful homemade donuts on weekend mornings. And if you have a desire for first-class shopping or a taste for the variety and excitement of the larger resorts at any time during your stay, Lewes, Rehoboth, and Dewey can be reached within 15 minutes or less. And even closer-by, the the old and charming town of Milton offers a refreshing kayak trip through the town along the Broadkill river followed by a delightful imbibing tour of the Dogfish Head Brewery.
