About John Lee

Semi-retired, I am a licensed Washington DC tour guide who enjoys golf and snow skiing when I am not guiding. We also enjoy domestic and international travel and spend much of the non-summer months at the beach house sampling the great local cuisine at off season prices.

John Lee purchased this house in 1997

Why John Lee chose Selbyville

I purchased this house because it is a very quiet and relaxed waterfront location but conveniently located from many attractions and the ocean. Originally I was enticed by a close friend who lives year round on the street but since, have developed several other friends who live there year round. We have great neighbors and about half of the block are people who live there year round.

What makes this house unique

As a single story home, it has all the amenities I need including a quiet deck overlooking adjoining canals. On a dead end street between two canals, you can walk to Harpoon Hannah's. Papa Grande's, Catch 54 or even Walgreens but you are still tucked away from the main highways.

Another fabulous family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

John's place feels like home away from home for our family. We've visited several times, and are always delighted with our stay. It's the perfect size, and we love being able to bring our pup. She made friends with a momma duck and her ducklings this year--such fun to watch. John's home is always spotlessly clean, very well-equipped, and the neighborhood is super quiet. We brought our kayaks this year, and really enjoyed paddling out into the bay to enjoy sunrises, sunsets, and bird-watching. The dog-friendly side of the public beach (5 minute drive) is delightful. We feel fortunate to have found such a great spot for our family vacations! Thanks, John!!

Better than the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

Great stay and a great house. Pictures don't do this place justice. The house was very clean and updated. Beautiful grounds in a quiet area.

Just wish there was a paddle boat or kayak to go with the dock.... :)
