Overview

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

Bring Your whole family - small dog(s) too!

Our condo is first floor, handicapped accessible, with two pools, a two mile/run walk track, and eight tennis courts, and a playground on premises. Walk to Lewes for breakfast in the morning, or just grab a cup of coffee at one of the five village eateries. On site is dining that meets all needs. ( We like 'Fish On' for happy hour in the bar - half price until 7). All restaurants have outdoor seating and range from upscale to family style. Two bikes come with the unit and can be ridden to the beach, or to one of the wonderful trails that connect Lewes to Rehobeth via and over dunes and backwaters. You can ride to the Lewes Cape May Ferry and take the Ferry (bikes free) to Cape May. The trail to Rehobeth that connects thru Henlopen State Park to Gordons pond is arguably one of the nicest beach bike paths on the east coast. We have even taken bikes to Rehoboth for dinner, but remember you CAN get a DUI on a bike!

Lewes Beach is family friendly, with soft waves and wide flat beaches. The state park (fee) gives you access to ocean waves and surf fishing.

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 and buy license) 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 Trailed boats there is a huge public launch facility with parking at Indian River Marina as well as town facilities and at Fisherman's wharf 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. Parents will appreciate a sunset cruise.

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. For high end outlets, nearby are the MD shops (Gucci, etc).

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 -

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).

About John Cowperthwait

I run a local plastics company, and live in Wilmington, Delaware. I fell in love with Lewes when I circumnavigated the peninsula in 2012. This condo gives us access to Lewes, on the 'right' side of Rt. 1, but away from the traffic and parking meters of downtown Lewes.

My wife has recently retired from the MS Society and is a native Delawarean. We can quickly go anywhere in the county, but get away from it all back in our Village. We live in the area and can be helpful to you with only a phone call.

John Cowperthwait purchased this condo in 2012

Why John Cowperthwait chose Delaware

Water and affordable living at the beach. Kitchen is fully stocked with all top equipment (wife is an amateur chef), has an urban feel, with family antiques mixed in.

What makes this condo unique

Affordable, tax free everything, independent movie theater, very high quality restaurants, but there are many chain restaurants on Rt. 1 for the whole family and Lewes is NOT a tourist attraction - yet - so it maintains it's sleepy, quirky town feel.

The Town motto is 'busy days, quiet nights'. It is the flip side of Rehobeth.

Do not acknowledge the famous folks - they hate that! Nod hello and keep going - that is what you do in Lewes Beach. This is especially true at the Saturday Farmers Market (no dogs) or walking on the beach. Yes you can approach the VP. Secret Service is used to this and will give you latitude. Do NOT approach POTUS. This is not well received by secret service.

Great stay!

  • 4 of 5

Kate was incredibly easy to work with, very responsive. We loved being able to bring our dogs, and we got our deposit back, so evidently they didn't cause any damage! The condo is comfortable for a group or a family, as advertised. The bay beach and the ocean beach are short drives away, and Lewes has good restaurants and shops, even in March. Snow on the beach was an unexpected bonus!

Happy Place

  • 5 of 5

My sincere thanks to both Kate & John for their attention to detail & responsiveness. Our 3-month stay in their Condo, during the construction of our new home, was very comfortable, quiet & close to everything. It was as advertised & much more. It had everything we needed & was indeed very dog friendly!! Strongly recommend this condo to anyone seeking clean "home away from home."

GREAT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5

This condo rental is a great little getaway. The condo was clean and well equipped. Kate and John are great to deal with. The condo complex is really nice. It is a little community within itself. There are great restaurants and even a grocery store within the complex. There are paths for walking, and if you have a dog, the paths have doggy stations all along the way. Being a dog owner, I really appreciated how dog friendly this complex is. We enjoyed sitting on the patio eating bread, cheese, olives, and wine from the Italian Deli in Lewes. My husband likes to fish, and there was a bait shop right near the entrance of the complex, which was very convenient. The condo is at a great location to go anywhere in Lewes. Downtown Lewes is awesome with all kinds of shops and restaurants. I would definitely recommend this rental for your next vacation getaway.

Nice Unit, good location!

  • 5 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 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.
