'THE IGUANA HOUSE'

Located in South Bowers Beach Island directly on the beach and located at the widest point of the Delaware Bay, approx 28 miles across to NJ, this Island home offers something very special that the large resorts don't have, peace and quiet.

Step right onto the sand from this beautiful beach home. If fishing is your thing, cast your line into the water and fresh fish are yours for breakfast or dinner, fishing license required.

You can put your small boat or kayak in the water right off the beach and explore local tributaries where you will find not only the serenity of a wilderness-like landscape but also many species of fish and crabs. Children can ride bikes on the quiet Island road, roller blade or play on the beach, collecting shells and sea glass and be amazed at the site of prehistoric horseshoe crabs that migrate to this area from South America.

Let the sun rising over the Bay and the sound of sea birds wake you in the morning and the gentle rustle of the Bay lapping at the beach lull you to sleep. Enjoy the 'Quiet Life', come to South Bowers Island...

Linens are not included in your rental... they are available for additional cost.

The road is subject to tidal flooding. There is an app available for mobile phones called Tides Near Me (its free). Once you open it, pick Delaware, Milford, Mispillion River Entrance. It will give you the best tide information

Perfect spot for relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This was the best equipped house we have ever rented. Every inch of this house has been well thought out. The pictures do not do it justice. We had 6 adults for a long weekend, and we never felt that we were in each others way. Just a perfect spot & we hope to return again in the future. Beautiful views from all windows and 2 beautiful decks with plenty of seating.

Tranquil Beach House

  • 5 of 5

The owner, Patrick, made this rental transaction very easy. The details were spelled out as well as the instructions for gaining entry to the house.

The house itself was adorable and the open floor plan and adequate seating made it comfortable for all. We're already talking about returning!

FABULOUS BEACH HOME!!

  • 5 of 5

We've rented a lot of vacation properties up and down the east coast and this is one of the very best! The location is quiet and secluded, the views spectacular and the house is just as described. The furnishings were nice and comfortable with amazing views from every room. The kitchen is very well stocked with anything you could want for food prep.

It’s nice to have parking under the house and to have ample parking. The beach is literally right out the door. We loved sitting on the decks and looking at the bay or the marsh while the kids liked being on the beach. The pictures don’t do the decks justice, as there are large decks on the both the front and the back, so whatever the time of day you can be in the sun or shade. The new owners have kayaks for guests to use, and with the bay location, it was a terrific place to kayak with the water being calm most of the time.

The new owners went out of their way to answer all our questions and were very accommodating. We'll definitely be back!

GREAT HOME...VERY RELAXING STAY

  • 5 of 5

Our experience matched the reviews here. We really enjoyed the house and the location. Plenty of peace and quiet and close enough to golf courses and short driving trips to area towns and ocean beaches. Bring kayaks or a canoe if you can. Bob was very responsive and easy to work with.

wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

2nd visit here, beautiful house, great beach for small children. Very private. If you like bonfires on the beach this is the place to go. Only thing I missed was the Iquana is not on the front of the house anymore. I missed seeing him. Thanks Bob for another great vacation!

Perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a treat to stay at Iguana House. Our ages ranged from 2- 70+ and we could not have enjoyed a more peaceful family holiday. We didn't need to do much - the decks give views to the sea at the back and inland to the front. There was plenty of wildlife to observe on the beach (crab, shrimp, fish, turtles) and shells to collect. The house is light, airy, clean and thoughtfully designed with a brilliantly equipped kitchen. It is remote - a positive for us - coming from London. As we left we felt jealous of the next family to enjoy it!
