About the area

* Rehoboth Beach Located within the City limits, Rehoboth Beach has it all. Stroll the mile-long boardwalk, relax on the beach, swim in the Atlantic, and visit the exquisite local shops and restaurants. * Cape Henlopen State Park On the water where the Delaware Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean. This 3,000-acre park near Lewes has the famous "walking" sand dunes, nature trails with guides, a nature center, camping bathhouses, tennis courts, recreation areas and areas for surf fishing and swimming. The park, located in Lewes, is home of the "Great Walking Dune" and WWII Observation Tower. The Cape May Ferry boards here crossing the Bay to Cape May, New Jersey which is a charming town. * Delaware Seashore State Park Water, water everywhere describes Delaware Seashore State Park. Bounded on the east by the mighty Atlantic Ocean, and on the west by Rehoboth Bay and Indian River Bay, the 2,018-acre park is a beachgoer's delight. Camping, bathhouses and recreational activities available. * Fenwick Island State Park Situated between the popular resort towns of Bethany Beach to the north and Fenwick Island and Ocean City, MD to the south, Fenwick Island State Park is a relaxing escape from the summer crowds. * Killen's Pond State Park Natural and recreational opportunities abound at Killen's Pond State Park, centrally located in the heart of Kent County. The park's centerpiece is the 66-acre millpond, which features boating and fishing. * Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge * Trap Pond State Park Freshwater wetlands once covered a large portion of southwestern Sussex County. Trap Pond State Park retains a part of the swamp's original beauty and mystery, and features the northernmost natural stand of Bald Cypress trees in the United States. Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1963 under the authority of the Migratory Bird Conservation Act for use as an inviolate sanctuary, or any other management purpose, expressly for migratory birds. It is located on the west shore of Delaware Bay, approximately 22 miles southeast of Dover, the State capital, and 64 miles southeast of Wilmington, Delaware. The refuge is considered to have one of the best existing wetland habitat areas along the Atlantic Coast. The intensively managed freshwater impoundments have become important stop-over sites for spring and fall migrating shorebirds and wading birds. Endangered and threatened species management activities provide habitat for the Delmarva fox squirrel, nesting bald eagles and migrating peregrine falcons. Neotropical land birds passing through utilize the refuge's upland forested habitat during the fall and spring. The refuge's 10,000 acres are a diverse landscape featuring freshwater and salt marshes, woodlands, grasslands, scrub-brush habitats, ponds, bottomland forested areas, a 7-mile long creek, and agricultural lands. These cover types provide habitat for approximately 267 species of birds, 35 species of reptiles and amphibians and 36 different mammals. Public use at Prime Hook provides compatible wildlife-oriented recreational opportunities. Since the signing of the National Wildlife Refuge System Improvement Act of 1997, appropriate public uses of the Refuge System include six major wildlife-dependent recreational uses and are: hunting, fishing, wildlife observation, photography, environmental education, and environmental interpretation. The Refuge is open 1/2 hour before sunrise to 1/2 hour after sunset.

“Exactly what we wanted”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2016

I rented the house for last week of July. There were 5 of us for four days and we were a total of 7 people for 3 nights. The house is spacious enough for 8 people and the 3 bedrooms plus hide a bed in the solarium with curtains which made a forth bedroom. The house was well equiped and as described, it contained everything for a great summer vacation. Fridge with ice maker was a bonus and having washer dryer was great. The way the house is spread out really creates a fantastic open concept central room. The view of the water as you cook and dine is marvelous. I had read reviews of people who complain about the beach and water but we loved swimming in the small waves and sitting in the 3 inner tubes which were so enjoyable but only at high tide when the underwater floor is soft sand and pebbles. The outdoor patio seemed to be the best on that who,e beach with it's gas fire pit, bbq , gas torches and and small white christmas lights.... It created a wonderfull ambiance. There were also two kayaks, a row boat and plenty of bicycles. The water must have been 85 degrees or more. fantastic...... Proximity to broadkill beach or the state park in Lewes was perfect. We truly had a great vacation. And i would recommend this place because it is well worth the price for all it'a ameneties and cleanliness. One small thing..... I have written to the owners two times since we got back for information about the security deposit and still hacen't got a return. I expect to get that money back and hope to hear from them soon.

“Excellent as always”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2015

2nd year now and not a complaint here! Place was just as nice! Yes, one neighbor cat, very nice cat, but not a problem with our two Rotts "snackin" as the other reviewer said. Yes, Horseflies were around and biting but nothing a little bug spray didn't cure. No big deal. All in all another wonderful vacation!! Thank You once again!! Booking for next year too!

“rental”

Reviewed 29 Jun 2015

when we arrived the toilet was backed up but was promptly taken care of. overall the house was comfortable and anything we could think of needing was available. Our 4 dogs had a blast but the biggest drawback was the amount of cats roaming the area using the property and the beach as their litterbox. The dogs were too preoccupied with cleaning this large litter box and we spent alot of time making sure they didnt spoil their dinner!!! tThe house could use a few repairs but otherwise an enjoyable trip

“Absolutely Wonderful!!”

Reviewed 31 Aug 2014

I hate to give away great secrets and tend to keep them to myself. But, Let me tell you that the stay at this cottage was wonderful! We brought our two dogs and it was the perfect setting for them! Hit the beach at about 9am-10am came in for lunch, returned and just kept moving the chairs back every so often while the tide rised. Relaxing, quite, and everything you need! The owners have made it fabulous, really, everything you need is right there and decorated very cute. Short drive to Milford to get necessities or find a place to eat out. We were going to travel down to Rohobeth and hit the boardwalk but, we ended quite happy right where we were. But, we are simple people and just enjoyed the quite and uneventful moments. The only complaint is the antenna TV that tended to go out and get maybe one channel at about 8 or 9 every night. But, there were plenty of DVDs to choose from and I had my laptop for streaming of Netflix. Like I said, I hate to share this find. I want to keep it to myself. Great Great Great vacation and we were very happy happy happy to be able to bring our furry kids with us!!

“Great Beach House”

Reviewed 25 Aug 2014

The Beach Front House is a great vacation house. The private beach out the back door is delightful. The house is well equipped, the location is great, and the sunsets on the beach are beautiful. The dogs had a great time as well.

“Perfect setting!”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2014

Coming from New Jersey, we really were looking for a scenic/serene setting to enjoy a family vacation with our chocolate Labrador retriever. (NJ beaches prohibit them generally). Not only was this the perfect place for that, the bayfront access provided us with an ideal and serene beach to relax and unwind. The cottage was wonderfully cozy and clean - the deck set the evening mood for relaxation. The toys and kayaks were a bonus to enjoy. We plan to return next year!

The beach house was great, nice on the bay not over crowded great fishing ,kayka and crabing close enough to drive to the water parks & outlets. Found a new vacation house year after year!

“Relaxing”

Reviewed 24 Jun 2014

Our family stayed at this quaint home over the Memorial Day week. We use this time to also meet up with family in the area. The home is comfortable and the location is great. Now the only thing I am going to say is if you can't have fun at this house it is your own fault. Bikes, outdoor games, reading material, dvds, and it's very own personal tree house. What more could you ask for just pleasant weather. We had good weather for the first few days and the beach was quiet and nice. We had a cold change in the weather but it made the trip an adventure and restful. Just to gaze upon the water and witness the changes along with the change of the weather was relaxing. Thank you for a very nice and comfortable place to stay.

“A cozy getaway”

Reviewed 25 Sep 2013

What a charming beach cottage. My boyfriend and I were looking for a serene vacation. We got just what we were looking for. The weather was absolutely beautiful. We spent a lot of time on the beach and on the deck. I must say very nice. We actually have a family beach home in Slaughter; however, a family member seems to be holding it hostage at the moment. We absolutely love this beach, especially if you are looking for alittle R&R. The cottage itself had so much character and the thought the owners put into it was wonderful. Everything we could have possibly needed was right there. The only negative thing, I can say is the mattresses on the full size beds are not very comfortable. But everything else made this seem minuscule.Thank you for a wonderful stay and we would definitely stay here again!
