About the property

Three Story Round House With Panoramic Views, Private Dock And Beach Access

We've been told many times that pictures don't do this house justice. Designed to take advantage of the spectacular scenery afforded by the location of this property, this helix house was custom built by the owners. The round, thousand square foot great room provides a breathtaking, panoramic view of the Delaware Bay, Prime hook Wildlife Refuge, the Broadkill River and Deep Hole Creek. A private dock is located in the backyard and beach access is a short walk up the street.

This house is the perfect getaway for your family vacation. The top floor great room of this abode features dining and living areas, powder room, and well-stocked kitchen with breakfast bar. You won’t miss out on any of the fun while cooking in this well-appointed kitchen which is the hub of this unique space. Guests can spy on wildlife such as deer, foxes, osprey and shore birds from here. Watch the sun set over the wildlife refuge from the screen porch, or enjoy your morning coffee on the front deck as you watch the Ferry cross the Delaware Bay.

The second level includes three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a laundry room, and TV viewing area with HD DVD player. Located at the back of the house, the master bedroom provides a queen bed, a fabulous view, and a full bathroom. The second bedroom is furnished with two twin beds, and the third bedroom offers a queen bed.

The ground floor family room provides a cool place to relax out of the heat and sun. The queen-size sleep sofa is a comfy place to sit and watch movies on the large screen TV. Step through one of three sliding glass doors to enjoy sunning on a secluded ground level deck in the landscaped back yard. The backyard dock is a terrific place to do some fishing, crabbing, or kayaking. The conveniently accessible gas range and dining table make it a great place to cook and eat the crabs you catch from the dock.

A brief walk up the street takes you to the beach where you can spend the day sunning, swimming, and fishing. A hose is conveniently located at the foot of the stairs to help you keep the sand outdoors, or you can refresh yourself in the private outdoor shower with hot and cold water while you cleanse away the sand and salt.

The nearby town of Milton features some really fabulous eateries, such as Po’ Boys, The Backyard, The Miltonian, and Irish Eyes, as well as King's Ice Cream Parlor. The Rookery Golf Course has a nice restaurant with a view of the golf course and the Broadkill Store offers fresh sandwiches, ice cream, and cold drinks. Weekends, they make their own doughnuts! While you’re there, you can pick up bait and fishing tackle.

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Broadkill Beach. Barb was kind enough to greet us, and everything exceeded our expectations. The views were amazing, and the small touches, like the telescope, made everything perfect. We were able to walk to the beach everyday, and enjoy the sunshine from the many different balconies throughout the day. Thanks for a wonderful vacation.

Second stay was even better!

We just love this beautiful home so perfectly situated between sea and the refuge marshes. Great birdwatching while just sitting on one of the decks or right from the living room. We’ll be back!

Way better than anticipated.

  • 5 of 5

A very welcoming home with awesome views of the National Wildlife Refuge and the Delaware Bay. The owners have created a welcoming home that is easy to use and to enjoy. We loved our stay not only because of the views but also because how well maintained and very clean everything was. The well equipped kitchen was a relief. Beach is just across the street. Owners were very helpful and accommodating.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. It's a beautiful house with a fantastic location. Beach views in front and a panoramic view of the marsh out back. Can't say enough good things about the place. We hope to come back in the future!
