Gate House Suite

  • 5 of 5

Totally enjoyed our first visit to Lewes, DE ! The apartment was perfectly situated within the city/town of Lewes, making it really easy to walk everywhere. The apartment itself was just the right size for one couple and very nicely decorated. I plan on telling our friends and family about this wonderful place....both Lewes and the Gate House abode. I believe that the owners may also own a restaurant in town called The Buttery where we had an EXCELLENT dinner...SO good! A little pricey but really worth it! Might be nice for a renter at the Gate House to get a coupon for The Buttery!!

The ONLY thing that I could say that would be a SLIGHT negative was that the cleaning crew for the apartment needs to be a little more thorough. The apartment was very clean, however, I did notice some areas that had been skipped; i.e. around the base of the fridge, the base of the bathroom sink (dust and hair), paneled doors that had collected dust and AC vents were dusty. Not a BIG deal but the owner should know this and talk to their cleaners.

Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend this place for one couple.

The apartment i cozy and in a great location. It was clean and neat and well equipped. There were some rowdy people leaving Agave late on Saturday night. Glad they had a good time but they were loud! Unfortunately, it was really windy while we were there and the The Gate House restaurant sign was right outside the bedroom window. It was creaking and thumping a bit in the wind. The only other issue was we had a hard time figuring out the television control. Most stations we tried said Subscription package needed. Something to tell us which channels were available would have been helpful.

Perfect location in Lewes

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was perfectly located in Lewes. Half a block to all the restaurants and a less than 5 minute drive to the beach. Parking can be tricky and the couch is a tad small are the only minor negatives about this place.
