2 BEDROOM DOG FRIENDLY CONDO IN THE VILLAGE OF FIVE POINTS

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Delaware - Viedeau

Bring Your Boat

Lewes and unit description

Lewes is the quieter beach town in Delaware; sort of a Nantucket like village, it is where the Delaware Bay kisses the Atlantic Ocean at Cape Henlopen State Park. Here you can surf in ocean waves, surf cast from the beach (bring your 4 wheel drive) or paddle a kayak in the calmer bay; or at the Lewes town beach.

Bring your boat or ski or kite or kayak or fins or... This is water world. It is arguably the best boating you will find North of Norfolk and South of Long Island Sound. Sorry Chesapeake, but there is no town that is like Lewes on the bay, and way too many logs and nettles float by in spring run off. Contact Lewes harbor master for first come first serve slips. For Trailored boats there is a huge public launch facility with parking at Inidan River Marina as well as town facilities and at Fishermans warf by the town docks.

The town envelops a canal proposed in 1654, authorized in 1803, but not fully completed until 1939. The ten mile canal connects a giant salt pond (called Rehoboth bay) and the Delaware Bay, or the mouth of the Delaware river. Besides the canal, there is only one other way in to the pond (through Indian River Inlet about 20 miles South), so as you might expect the water flows past Lewes at over 7 mph at max flood. One mile north from town center on the canal and you pass into the Delaware Bay through Roosevelt Inlet. From there it is 3 miles to Lewes Breakwater light and open ocean. The light house is inactive but the structure and lighthouse were authorized by John Quincy Adams and completed in 1869. Take a half mile walk on a breakwater if you want. Great fishing around this structure.

Heading to the light you will pass the town beach to your Starboard side, and countless beach cottages, condos, and beach mansions as well as the Cape May/ Lewes Ferry port. This is a great place to watch the July 4th Fireworks. Or catch a ride on the Kalmar Knickel. She stops by briefly in early May but returns in August through September. Check her website. She is a replica of a Swedish ship that settled Wilmington. Her first visit was 1638. Kids will want a ride.

From Roosevelt inlet There are 19 artificial reefs within 20 miles teaming with the best on the bottom. More wrecks to dive on then you can count. If you like to spear fish go to Fenwick shoals just past Indian River inlet.. Want something bigger and there is a team of charter boats waiting to take you to the canyons or the gulf if you have the time and money.

If you like to sail, and like blue water this is heaven. Nothing beats pitch black about 30- 40 miles offshore on a starry starry night; with or without the moon. Push out at about 7PM, and you can be there by midnight, back at sunup. Spectacular place to watch fireworks.

Ok, that was going North in the canal. For small boaters, kayakers, paddle boats...... Go South about 10 miles (with tide at your back) on the Lewes Rehoboth canal and you will be in the Rehoboth Bay (massive shallow water bay for spectacular skiing kiting or boarding).

For fishing, sailing, water skiing, and other water sports, historic Lewes is one of the best water oriented little known vacation towns on the east coast. It was the first town settled in Delaware and its homes, shops and streets date back to the 18th centuries.

About a mile and half away from historic downtown Lewes is our condominium at the modern Village of Five Points. Everything you need is within walking distance - grocery store, coffee shops, nightlife, casual dining, retail, pharmacy, 8 tennis courts, 2 pools, 2 mile running track, bus line to Rehoboth/Dewey beach are all available

This ground floor condo has 2 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms and is furnished with one queen bed in the Master Suite, two twins, and one additional Futon in the living room can accommodate a fifth vacationer.

The Dining Room has a round table that can seat up to 12, Kitchen has pantry with stacked washer dryer, and is well equipped with microwave, dishwasher and appliances in new condition. Living Room looks over a small porch suitable for four. Clean, comfortable, convenient, and well equipped.

Nearby there is Golf, TAX FREE Shopping, Water Sports, Sightseeing, Gambling, Theater, Fishing, Camping & Hiking, Antiques, or just relaxing at the beach or pool. If it is rainy and no traffic DC is a day trip: DONT TRY ON FRIDAY OR SUNDAY, but All of this and more are surprisingly nearby.

Other; Incidentally did I mention, if clear, watching 4th July fireworks on a boat off Lewes, or off Rehoboth or Dewey (in the Atlantic or the Pond) is a great experience.

For Land Lubbers, beach bon fire permits are available on Lewes beach. Strongly advise getting pass to Henlopen State Park (go the their site or Wiki). Once the highest bluffs on the east coast, Cape Henlopen has been an important Fort since the revolutionary war and as recently as WWII. Sunken German subs are close enough and shallow enough for diving. Kids can climb over the naval guns (not Army artillery), or scramble over the WWII machine gun turreted observation towers. Great Beaches, dunes and bike paths. Nice public fishing pier.

Casino Entertainment at AC, Dover Downs, Harrington DE

Cape May Ferry leaves hourly for New Jersey.. Cape May is a really great day trip. Take a bike or car, back in the condo same day and if timed right this might a good place to watch 4th July Fireworks?

Lewes Beach (it is quiet, well protected from surf, and boats, and well guarded). Perfect for little kids and fireworks.

Indian River Inlet has great fishing where water really whistles into the bay. While the new bridge is too low for ocean going sailboats, you can get in and out with power or day sailors, and other fast craft. If you time the tide, a non powered sailboat can run in.

TAX Free shopping is the case in the entire state of Delaware, but in Rehoboth there is TAX FREE outlets. My wife said to stress this.

Golf at Bear Trap, Heritage, The Rookery, Baywood Greens, Old Landing

Museums and Galleries, are plentiful, especially in Rehoboth. From Lewes the preferred route for many is the Bike trail. The trail snakes through woods and over creeks flowing behind Henlopen State Park, and ending at Rehoboth's great ( maybe infamous) boardwalk

Great boat charters from Lewes, for fishing, diving, dolphin watching (by the way you can swim with these off Henlopen).

The Kalmar Knykel sails into the Lewes Ferry port May 14, and 15 as it circumnavigates the Delmarva Peninsula. She is a replica of a Swedesh vessel that crossed first of four crossing in 1638. The original ship — a new type of gun-armed merchant vessel called a Dutch Pinnace — was built by the Dutch in Amsterdam in about the year 1625. She was purchased in 1629 by a Swedish consortium to serve as an auxiliary warship for the Swedish navy, which she did until her decommissioning in 1651 — except for the years from 1637 to 1644 when she sailed the Atlantic for the New Sweden Company. An exceptional ship with a long and remarkable career, she was sold to a private merchant after being decommissioned from the navy. No completely definitive records have been uncovered as of yet, but Kalmar Nyckel was probably resold to the Dutch navy as an escort vessel and sunk in the North Sea while fighting for the Dutch in a war against the English in 1652.

She stop in May before heading to Provincetown MA . It is back on August 8 until Sept 20th when it heads home to Wilmington for the winter. You can take the kids out for cruises. Never done it, but suspect Fireworks would be.........

OH finally, if you like the water in the fall, there is a light boat parade in Lewes. While you would think it would be the 4th of July, it is instead on Saturday, October 1st, and marks the end of summer. Bring and decorate your boat. Entry can be made Lewes Chamber of Commerce visitor center in the Fisher-Martin House next to the Zwaanendael Museum or call 645-8073 to have one mailed -

There is an informal parade on 4th as everyone heads out to the bay for the.......

Let the kids go play; There are plenty of activities within five miles, and the shuttle can take you to the beach. Come park your car and stay for a week (or two).

Nice Unit, good location!

  • 5 out of 5
We spent a week at the condo and found it to be well equipped and very comfortable.
The setup is great for two couples because the bedrooms are on either side of the living room, giving some privacy. The neighborhood where the unit is located has tons of amenities- restaurants, groceries, liquor and drugstores are all within walking distance.
Owners were super responsive and great to work with.

Excellent acomodations

  • 5 out of 5
This condo was exactly what we needed--just right for a small family. The amenities at Five Points were great. The pool is large and suitable for swimmers of all skill levels, plus a large kiddie pool. The grocery store and restaurants (including cafe and lunch-time sandwich places) being walking distance made it especially easy for traveling with kids. The drive to the beach is straightforward. I certainly recommend and will gladly stay here again. Also its Ground Floor location made it really easy.

Village of Five Points

  • 5 out of 5
We read the details on the website. The place was as described. Everything in walking distance, including the Food Lion, grocery store. Roosevelt Inlet was our beach of choice. The condo and the amenities made a memorable vacation for all. We will return on our next trip to the shore. The property owner answered all questions promptly. I would highly recommend this property to a friend or relative.
