Overview

Photos and Description of the Broadkill Beach vacation house rental

Steps to Sandy Beach, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 12, Boat Ramp, and Large Dock

This exclusive property provides you with the availability of unlimited activities & adventures that few people are privileged enough to experience. Located on the south end of Broadkill Beach, this spacious four bedroom property faces the sandy beach just a few steps from your front door; to the back of the property is your own private dock & boat ramp giving you access to the Broadkill River, Delaware Bay & the Atlantic Ocean.

Instead of parking problems, heavy traffic & crowded beaches, a typical day could look something like this:

In the early morning, from your master bedroom’s private sundeck; view the eastern sky & large ships that appear small, moving effortlessly through a vast body of water while you are enjoying your first cup of coffee. Walk over a small dune that reveals the shore line of the Delaware Bay; sooth your soul by feeling the calmness of the new day. As you watch the pink, orange & gold sunrise over the water, the calm changes, you feel a breeze coming from the salty sea, you see & hear the waves begin to lap onto the beach, birds appear & start chirping & moving toward the one foot surf; you now know why Broadkill Beach is the best kept secret in all of Delaware.

Linger & watch the Cape May/Lewes Ferry travel across the mouth of the Delaware Bay to its destination. Watch dolphins playing, splashing & catching fish just in front of you. Walk north toward the Broadkill Store, turn over stranded horseshoe crabs & stop to investigate the life on & around the rock jetty. At low tide look for hermit crabs, star fish, conchs & other sea life in the shallow water around these rocks. Read, relax, swim & take a nap at the water’s edge & refresh yourself with lunch in the cool air conditioning of you vacation retreat just behind the small dune you crossed over earlier in the day.

Walk south on the same beach toward Beach Plum Island State Park, & ask the fishermen if they are catching anything today. Look south & identify the Roosevelt Inlet, historic Lewes, Henelopen Point & the breakwater lighthouse.

Return to your private retreat, take an outdoor shower & plan your evening by making sure you are back home to sit on the bench seats of your private dock to watch a spectacular sunset over a Wildlife Refuge & waterway adjoining your own back yard.

Imagine the convenience of having your own private boat launch & dock, giving you access to limitless activities & adventures that few people would be fortunate enough to discover & experience. Spend the day fishing or crabbing from the dock, exploring winding tributaries in the backwaters, drifting on the Broadkill River, charging through the Roosevelt Inlet into the open expanse of the Delaware Bay & Atlantic Ocean waiting for you to experience all it has to offer.

Bring your toys, if you don’t you’ll wish you had. Launch your pontoon, fishing boat, jet skis, canoes, kayaks or other flotation vessels into the backwaters. Navigate south on the Broadkill River to Lewes for a meal or cocktail at the waterside restaurants. Go out Roosevelt Inlet for bay fishing or jet skiing. Come around on the bay to your home at Broadkill & take the family for a ride on the jet skis, go tubing or wakeboarding, take the speed boat for a sightseeing tour, or load everyone up on the pontoon boat for a day trip and picnic lunch. Head back in the Inlet and get a gasoline fill-up on the water at the north end of Lewes.

Your dock is long enough to hold a 24 foot pontoon boat in the water for the week & still have plenty of room to crab, fish, catch minnows, sunbathe, put up a baby pool, fill with water, sit & relax. Replenish your mind & soul with the serenity of the environment, meditate, read or experience the sunset from the dock of your private oasis.

This open concept home, built in the perfect location, was designed for comfort, convenience & enjoyment to be shared with family, friends & now with you. It consists of two separate living quarters that are included in the weekly rental fee; a three bedroom house & a one room efficiency apartment which sleeps 4. The two areas are connected by an enclosed staircase & access an outdoor shower, changing area & private space.

On the top level of your home, there are two bedrooms: a Master (21' x 12') and a 14' x 14' bedroom. The Master has a King size bed, single & a pop-up trundle. The second room has a Queen & single bed with pop-up trundle. The master bedroom has a mini refrigerator to store chilled items needed throughout the day/evening/night. The west balcony of this room provides breathtaking views of the Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge being described as scenes from the movie, “Out of Africa”. The peaceful Broadkill River is easily seen from this location. Sunsets with a glass of wine (or fresh Strawberry Daiquiri) seen from this private location are always amazing! A private 10'x12' sun deck on the east side of this same room is accessible only through the Master & includes two lounge chairs. From this location, one can see the “Ice Breakers”, Cape May/Lewes Ferry, the Broadkill River, beautiful sunrises, & dolphins jumping in the Delaware Bay.

A complete bathroom between the two rooms that is accessed by pocket doors has a hair dryer located in the vanity drawer. In the closet of this bathroom is a coffee maker, blender, coffee cups, dessert plates, bar glasses & a wine bucket. A plastic bin provided, aids in transferring used glasses & dishes to the dishwasher in the kitchen. We thought of everything! Plan on bringing your own bath & beach towels.

The second bedroom has a portable ironing board & iron for your convenience. There is also a queen size air mattress in this closet for additional sleeping area. The Wildlife Refuge, Broadkill River, boat dock & ramp, fire pit, & tidal waterways are seen from this room.

The third bedroom (12' x 14'), adjacent to the bathroom on the main floor, has a Queen Size bed & a single bed with a pop-up trundle that matches the height of the single bed. The two single beds side by side provide as much room as a king size bed. Mirrored doors on the closet hide a built in dresser & hanging closet space. Its view is the same as the second bedroom, just one floor lower.

The main floor bathroom has a toilet, bathtub/shower combination & double sinks.

The main floor has a fully equipped kitchen (11' x 8') including bar area with two swivel back stools, dishwasher, space saver microwave, halogen electric stove, self-cleaning oven, refrigerator, & ice maker. All pots & pans, utensils, dinnerware, glasses, dish cloths & towels, hot pads & small appliances including electric mixer, toaster, griddle, waffle iron, blender, & coffee maker are provided. A gas grill is at the east entrance of the house on ground level hidden behind the outdoor shower.

On the main floor is a dining area (13' x 10') with a wet bar. This area seats 6 people comfortably. This room has a slider door that accesses a screened in porch with plastic table & chairs, also seating six. Views of the Delaware Bay & all of its activities are seen through these glass slider doors & porch.

The 56” LG LED Flat Screen High Definition 1080 p TV, Blu-ray/DVD player is located beside the corner fireplace & can also be seen from the dining area. The white pine cathedral ceiling with oak accents is quite impressive from this room. There is one long (10' x 25') deck off the triple panel glass slider door in the living room, viewing the Delaware Bay. This deck spans the entire front of the house on the east side & gets sun from sunrise until 4:00 p.m. There are six to eight lounge chairs on this deck for relaxation & sun bathing.

The renovated efficiency (15' x 23') sleeps four (futon, single & pop-up trundle). It has shower/dressing area toilet & vanity. Amenities include double capacity washer/dryer, double sided stainless kitchen sink, microwave, refrigerator/ice-maker, 2 tables, 8 chairs, toaster, coffeemaker, blender & 49" Flat Screen TV.

Notes:
Bring your water toys, bikes, golf clubs, photography gear and good books! The place is really accommodating for you to have great adventures beyond the usual beach vacation. You will not want to leave the property to go anywhere by vehicle! Some families actually bring groceries from home to avoid going to the Food Store. If you love to fish, you can even catch your own live minnows for bait. Crabbing off the dock in the back yard is amazing! Nothing like fresh “caught that day” fish and blue claw crabs! The water in the back of the property is tidal waters. Check Roosevelt Inlet and add an hour for Broadkill River tides. Bed linens will be done by the home owner. Please place used linens at the washing machine in the efficiency to be washed and dried by owner. If you need more linen, extra bed linen is found in the bottom drawers of dressers in each bedroom closet. The efficiency’s linen is just inside the garage door in the lower dresser drawers. Book with us @ VRBO.com # 602695.
