About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 11-15)

Enjoy the privacy of a gated community, without the gates. Prime Hook is located perfectly behind a wildlife refuge. Not many people know about our oasis on the bay. Close enough to the excitement, if you want it. And then come back and enjoy a bonfire on the beach.

About Patrick Leonard

We are a family of 4. My wife and I bought the Beach House 17 years ago. When we bought it was a small cottage from the 50's. 9 years ago we tore down the cottage and built our beautiful, elevated dream beach home. We have had two sons since having the beach house. The family enjoys coming to the beach year round. The kids can play outside like I used to be able to do when I was a kid. We have a chocolate lab that loves the water and the beach and we take him with us every chance. The beach is hidden and has been a safe haven for us over the years

Patrick Leonard purchased this house in 1994

Why Patrick Leonard chose Prime Hook Beach

We chose this location because of the privacy and lack of commercial enterprise. We are close enough to everything that Rehoboth, Lewes and Dewey have to offer, but far enough that we can enjoy the serenity of a peaceful day. We like to relax on vacation. Primehook is the place for relaxing.

What makes this house unique

The boys enjoy, kayaking and biking. The wife and I enjoy, sunning, swimming, walking the sandbar at low tide, its awesome. So much to do.

The First floor has the Kitchen, Dining room and Living room. There are also two bedrooms on this floor, each with a full bath. One king size bed and one Queen. The first deck is on this level. The washer and dryer are conveniently located on this level as well. The second floor has A full Bath, a family room and the third bedroom. The only way to describe this bedroom is HUGE. There are three full size beds and a twin bunk, and still plenty of room to spare. The Family room provides a great place to relax and for the family to spread out. There is also a deck on the second level. On a good day one can see for miles.

In nearby Milton, about 9 miles away, we have a Food Lion, a Walgreens, a Subway, a Chinese carryout, a Domino's and one of Our favorites, the Miltonian Restaurant with Greek/Italian and American cuisine.

For more shopping we have Lewes and Rehoboth Beach and (Outlets) south on Route 1.

There is the Boardwalk in Rehoboth and further south, in Ocean City as well as historic sites, theatres, amusement parks, the incomparable Henlopen State Park on the ocean in Rehoboth and all kinds of experiences awaiting you at the shore.

Quiet, relaxing beach experience plus so much more!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our last minute get away with my daughters and son-in-law. Prime Hook Beach is a quiet, hidden find. The horseshoe crabs were abundant but we found great places free from too many. The low tide sandbars were amazing and you could walk out in knee deep water forever! The house was well stocked and very spacious. We enjoyed the views of the ocean from the decks and the wildlife wetlands from the bedrooms. I wish the weather had cooperated for more days but we found things to do nearby including shopping and yummy ice cream in Milton!

Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your home.

Clean, accommodating, and peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

Patrick was very easy to communicate with which is a big plus when you are traveling to a new area and have lots of questions. The house had everything we needed and we had every age from toddler to grandparents with us. The views out of the back windows were breath taking any time of the day! Plenty of space, clean, great kitchen, lots of linens and towels, great A/C, outdoor shower and the upstairs bedrooms were like seperate living quarters. The beach was across the street and almost private, during the season.(two other people a distance away) I would rent this house again and fell in love with the area as a whole. A little buggy outside at times - Thanks again Patrick.

Great house and Great location if you prefer peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

House is plenty big and well equipped for our crew of 4 adults, a toddler and dog. Just steps to the beach and neighbors very friendly. Easy drive into Milton for groceries (Food Lion) and really good food at local restaurants.

Great stay near natural beach

  • 4 of 5

Great house, as advertised. One block back from beautiful natural beach. Stayed with my wife, 4 year old daughter, and german shepherd. As we were leaving my daughter said "I love Delaware beach. Can we come back to this house next year?"

Great for the size and interests of my family.

  • 4 of 5

A family vacation including grand kids and dogs, this was enough space for all of us so that we didn't feel like we were on top of each other. Beds were fine, kitchen and eating areas accommodated 12 of us. Was helpful to have the washer and dryer, dishwasher. We definitely enjoyed the lower deck for expanded kid activities. There are mosquitoes, mainly at night, but not unexpected considering the amount of water around. Loved the kayak, proximity to the beach, no one really on the beach but us and one or two other families. Wonderful having the refuge as a backyard, incredible bird life! We all had a really fun time together.

Fantastic Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and comfortable. It was large enough for everyone to have their own space. It was a little buggy but bug spray for the house and off worked well. The views from the porch were awesome between watching boats and looking at the coastlines through binoculars. It is REALLY a sort walk to the beach. We went to the state park and spent the day at the ocean and at night to the boardwalk at Rehoboth Beach and also went shopping at the outlets. The rides to these places is not more than 20-30 minutes depending on traffic. Thank you for sharing your house.
