About this listing

4 bedroom 3.5 bath beach house only a block from a rarely crowded, large, open beach. The home backs onto Prime Hook wildlife refuge which is a birder's dream location. Only 15 mins from Lewes Beach and 30 mins from Rehoboth.

The space

Open floor plan with lots of natural light. Enjoy the views from the large deck or screened porch. Views overlooking Wildlife refuge are a birder's paradise while only a block from the beach. 3 bedrooms on the top floor with one bathroom, master bedroom and bathroom on the main floor with half bath off the laundry room. Bonus room with full bathroom on the ground floor with card table, sofa and TV. Perfect for those family members who like to stay up later but worry about keeping the rest of the group awake.

The walkway to the pier in the back of the house has been too badly damaged to allow people to walk on it. Repairs are planned at some point but the project is bigger than anticipated and will not be ready for this season. The gate leading to the walkway will be locked.

Guest access

There are beach chairs and a wagon to help haul your things back and forth from the beach. Board games and Direct TV are available to help entertain the group but not every room has cable connected. WiFi is high speed cable so streaming on your own devices is possible.

Interaction with guests

Owner will not be present but contact info for repair or maintenance concerns given on fridge. You will be given instructions for accessing the house a few days prior to the rental date.

Other things to note

8 guest maximum please. Too many guests can stress the septic system and cause overflow and backups to the drainage field.

I had a great stay at this adorable beach house. Quiet beach with minimal people during the week. Very pet friendly. Bugs including deer flies can get bad, but only when the wind comes off the wildlife refuse. Close enough to Rehoboth (25 min with traffic) to visit for dinner or shopping without the bustle of Rehoboth Beach. The general store on the corner was a nice bonus and Milton was only minutes down the street for groceries. The house itself is well arranged with plenty of room and a nice screened in sun porch. Lots of natural light. Mattresses were decent. Kitchen was almost completely fully stocked so don't worry about bringing things unless you need something for specialty cooking. Very enjoyable stay!

Good location, space- odd check out Pros: FANTASTIC location and space. We loved having the marsh and beach views and waking up to the sound of the waves. The house itself has a lot of good indoor and outdoor space so a group wouldn't feel cramped. Cons: Despite the $200 cleaning fee and request to bring our own linens, the instructions for check out were fairly elaborate, down to taking out our own trash. We ended up having to do quite a bit of work for a weekend getaway. Maybe worth it for a longer trip.

We had a great stay at the home and the location is very unique. You really feel isolated and it's so peaceful with the beach on one side and a open field facing the bay in the back. There was plenty of space and light and the screened in porch on the second floor is an amazing place to relax. The house comes pretty bare bones with no linens or toiletries as explained clearly by the host so make sure to bring your own. The beds were only average and mattresses could use an upgrade but did not detract from the secluded area perfect for a quiet relaxing weekend near the shore.

My family enjoyed our stay to the fullest! It was exactly how it was portrayed. Isolated, peaceful, private, quiet and incredible views from the home. It was perfect for us. We felt as if we were the only ones at the beach. Thank you Randy for your positive communication and allowing us to stay at your house. It was clean, comfortable and beautiful. We look forward to coming back, next year we'll have to book earlier. Much blessings to you!

We enjoyed a fantastic 2 weeks late August at Broadkill Beach. The house was exactly as we expected but even better, because the privacy was under-rated in the description. We LOVED this stay and will definitely be coming back next year. The whole area feels like a 'best kept secret'. There were times that the beach felt entirely private for a mile. Even when it was 'busy', it was a fraction of the busy-ness of Bethany and Rehoboth. Across 2 weeks, the water went from choppy fun waves to glass smooth. The very easy walk to the beach (just a driveway away from the dunes), the privacy, the space in the house, the private porch, Randy's responsiveness and accessibility -- all excellent! Zero problems. We were there for 14 days -- 13 were all sun, high temps, and easy relaxation. This was the 4th time we AirBNB'd and it ranked at the very top. Thank You Randy!

Randy was easy to reach, very helpful and extremely responsive. The home was very spacious and exactly how it was described. It's perfect for families or larger groups and the beach is peaceful yet close to everything you would need. The kitchen has everything you would need and there is a nice grill on the deck. The screened in porch overlooking the river was perfect for a relaxing evening!

Randy was a wonderful host! His home had everything we needed. The property is located in a wonderful quiet area that not many people know about. I highly recommend choosing this property for a relaxing vacation with friends or family!
