Why Bill LeConte chose Delaware

Fun, funky house!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house with a lot of personality. Close to the beach, but in a secluded setting. There is plenty of space in the living area and porch for relaxing. No need to bring beach chairs or sand toys because there are plenty there. We also love that the Dollar General is right there. It was amazing how many times we needed to go there for random things! Couple things you should know though: The loft is more for kids, and definitely not toddlers. There is a ladder to get up there that is pretty steep. The one bedroom is also a loft open to the living area, so plan sleeping arrangements accordingly. Others can't see up there, but you hear anyone in the living space. Not a big deal for our family, as we are all pretty much on same schedule at the beach.

Perfect family beach vacation house

  • 5 of 5

We had never been to the Delmarva coast before, so we weren't sure what to expect in the way of accommodations, neighborhood, or beach quality. Fortunately, 21 Bridge Road gave us a great experience in all three! The house has central air and double paned windows, which was essential - there was an excessive heat advisory in place during our entire stay. Renting this house entitles you to use the private, lifeguarded Middlesex Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches I've visited in the continental U.S. Since only residents (or renters) in the Middlesex Beach neighborhood are allowed to use it, the beach is never crowded - even on an August weekend. The house is an easy, three block walk to the beach, and is outfitted with beach chairs, coolers, umbrellas, sand toys and a boogie board. If you're looking for a pub crawl or a jumping beach party scene, Middlesex Beach is probably not your best choice - it's laid-back, family-friendly, and it was pretty quiet the week we were there, so it suited our vacation style perfectly. The house is great for two or more families travelling together, as three of the four bedrooms are separated from the rest of the house by the patio (only the loft bedroom is connected with the living room and kitchen area). The owner is polite, responsive, and ready to make sure your stay is enjoyable. We are already planning our return next summer!

Great family vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and my sister in law's family rented this house together. We had six kids ranging in age from 12-2 (1 was in a pack in play) and 5 adults. It was perfect!! The lay out of the house was really cool-we especially liked the loft and so did our kids when they wanted to escape from the adults. 2 full bathrooms with an outdoor shower, laundry, AC, screened in porch-we were set! I especially liked the option of accessing the private beach-it was clean, people were friendly, and best of all it wasn't super crowded. Grocery store, coffee, restaurants all within a reasonable drive from the property. We had a great week and will definitely be back!

Charming house in Middlesex Beach

  • 4 of 5

Quiet, clean house conveniently located to Middlesex Beach with all your beach needs provided - beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards and sand toys! You just bring the fun! Fully stocked kitchen with great coffee pot - incredibly important for my family. Loft bedrooms great for early risers and night owls. Fantastic screened in porch with swings and hammock chairs.

Keyless lock made it super easy for everyone to come and go as needed.

Another great stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second vacation at the beach cottage and another success. It was nice to know just what to expect by being there before. The house is loaded with all kinds of extras. The owner is very responsive. The short walk to the private beach was great. Look forward to coming back again.

We have just returned from our second stay at this house at Middlesex Beach. We nothing buy positive comments. The house is very clean and well-equipped. Further, the owner was responsive to our questions. Middlesex is the best beach in the Bethany Beach area. We will definitely return for a third stay when our schedule permits.
