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 Edgewater Acres

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 and more but you are still tucked away from the main highways.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We really loved the house! It was so homey and a great location. It was wonderful having a stocked kitchen to use. We've never stayed somewhere where we didn't have an emergency store run for something missing. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thanks Danielle. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. The last thing you need to do when you get to your vacation destination is go back out and fight traffic and lines in stores so I'm happy a stocked kitchen made it a bit easier. Hope to have you next year.

Very Enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd time I have stayed at this property and was not disappointed. Everything is immaculate, well stocked and very clean. This location is very quiet and relaxing, we hardly saw anyone else the entire time. Would recommend to anyone.

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!!
