The house was cosy, comfortable, warm and suited us perfectly for a family of 5. The beds were all very comfortable and there was luxury tv entertainment in all rooms and we loved exploring and playing with all the games available. The record player and selection of vinyls was a big hit and an eduction for our children. It was fantastic to be able to borrow the bikes. We brought 3, borrowed one and the trailer which was perfect for carrying our youngest as she wouldn't have managed the 12 mile bike trail! The property is close to Rehoboth and Lewes and we explored the beaches and Cape Henlopen state park. Steve was very helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
