About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)


Located in South Bowers Beach Island directly on the beach and located at the widest point of the Delaware Bay, approx 28 miles across to NJ, this Island home offers something very special that the large resorts don't have, peace and quiet.

Step right onto the sand from this beautiful beach home. If fishing is your thing, cast your line into the water and fresh fish are yours for breakfast or dinner, fishing license required.

You can put your small boat or kayak in the water right off the beach and explore local tributaries where you will find not only the serenity of a wilderness-like landscape but also many species of fish and crabs. Children can ride bikes on the quiet Island road, roller blade or play on the beach, collecting shells and sea glass and be amazed at the site of prehistoric horseshoe crabs that migrate to this area from South America.

Let the sun rising over the Bay and the sound of sea birds wake you in the morning and the gentle rustle of the Bay lapping at the beach lull you to sleep. Enjoy the 'Quiet Life', come to South Bowers Island...

Linens are not included in your rental... they are available for additional cost.

The road is subject to tidal flooding. There is an app available for mobile phones called Tides Near Me (its free). Once you open it, pick Delaware, Milford, Mispillion River Entrance. It will give you the best tide information. Higher clearance vehicles recommended.

Perfect place for a relaxing family beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough how much we enjoyed our stay at the Iguana House. It was our first time at a Delaware beach, and you never know quite what to expect when trying somewhere new ... well, we LOVED it! The beach was SO private and tranquil ... other than the delightful neighbors and another family or two we'd see sometimes on the beach, it felt like the beach was completely ours. We loved taking long morning walks picking up sea glass and knobbed whelk shells, and we were delighted to see baby terrapin turtles making their way down to the sea!

As far as the house itself, the pictures and listing don't do justice to how beautiful it is. We expected it to be clean and well-equipped based on the pictures, but we didn't expect it to be SO beautiful on the inside as it is. Everything was extremely comfortable, and we didn't want for anything.

We're already talking about coming back next year and making this "our" place!

Peaceful and Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the Iguana House was outstanding. The home was beautiful, the bay was calm, and apart from some biting insects and the occasional low-tide aroma (both perfect parts of nature) the beach was exceptional. We caught blue crabs in the marsh, flounder from the sand bar, and had an amazing feast of sea-to-table food.

The house is far enough away from noise and commotion to make every moment feeling like a real vacation, but it is close enough to everything (restaurants, stores, tourist centers like Rehoboth and Lewes) to allow for any number of adventures. There aren't enough good things to be said about our experience.

We would go back again and again.

Lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and found the house very comfortable. Owners were very responsive, including calling during a bad storm that came through. We wish we could have stayed longer, but we hope we'll be back again!

Beautiful house, perfect spot! So nice and quiet. You feel like you have your own private beach.

  • 4 of 5

Patrick was very easy to work with and always responded quickly! The house is beautiful and very well kept. Very nice having decks on both sides of the house. It was great being so close to the water! It did get very buggy at night but I'm guessing it's because you're right on the water. Overall enjoyed a wonderful weekend!!

We had such a nice time at the Iguana House! It had everything we needed, and the beach had beautiful shells.

Perfect spot for relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This was the best equipped house we have ever rented. Every inch of this house has been well thought out. The pictures do not do it justice. We had 6 adults for a long weekend, and we never felt that we were in each others way. Just a perfect spot & we hope to return again in the future. Beautiful views from all windows and 2 beautiful decks with plenty of seating.
