About the property

Steps From The Beach, Make Family Memories In Our 4 Bedroom House!

Make great family memories at our sunny, contemporary Broadkill Beach home near Lewes and Rehoboth, just steps from the beach. Go back in time. Broadkill is pristine, private, and next to the Prime Hook Nature Preserve. Golf nearby too!

Explore the area on our 4 adult and 2 child bikes (bring your helmets). Relax and enjoy our beach chairs, toys and umbrellas! Try your hand at stand up paddleboarding. Check out the sandbar at low tide and the bunches of tiny hermit crabs. At night by flashlight, low tide is a whole other experience! Make S'mores on the beach at night. Bring your fishing gear and grill your catch or simple fare on our large front deck using our electric grill. Our kitchen is well stocked with everything you need, including a new stove, crock pot for easy meals, and a blender for smoothies! Just bring your fresh ingredients, linens, and paper products. There are great restaurants, free Wednesday night summer concerts in the park and antiquing in the cute town of Milton as well as inviting churches on Sunday morning. A little further afield, explore the lavendar farm, in full bloom in July, and lots of great shopping outlets.

Play games on our screened-in back porch. Rent a kayak or at the Broadkill Store and launch it at the beach or in the calm preserve waters for great bird and nature watching. Tour the eclectic, fun Dogfishhead Brewery and sample their brews including root beer for kids and the young at heart. Memories made here!

We are pet friendly for well-behaved, well-supervised pets. Our beach is pet friendly and also allows residents and guests to pull their vehicle right up to the water to launch their small craft, but you'd never guess it from how clean and peaceful it is! Sleep soundly in comfortable, new queen beds, comfortable full bed, and twin bunks with trundle. Rinse off in our fresh, new outdoor shower or in one of the 2 full baths. More pics on Facebook, see Delaware Beach Bliss! Call Pat for more information. Relax at Delaware Beach Bliss!

About Pat

We live in Allentown, Pa with our two children who are 13 and 17. They are so busy with sports and activities that we can't bliss out at the beach as much as we'd like. That's why we want to share our home with you.

Pat purchased this house in 2013

Why Pat chose Broadkill Beach

We love the beach! A friend at work also owns a place here and found this home for us. Once we saw it, we couldn't resist making Broadkill Beach our Destination Getaway. This is our dream beach house for the next chapter of our lives when our kids go off to school!

What makes this house unique

We love the proximity to the sand, contemporary feel, all the windows, the fireplace, and the fish over the fireplace. There's a view of the beach from the deck, and the house is very roomy. This is a very comfortable home for families and entertaining good friends. We have two kids and my best friend has two kids. Our two families are very comfortable at Bliss!

Beautiful location and beach area

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and enjoyed the amenities that were there. The beach was a short walk with plenty of beach chairs and umbrellas, water toys, paddle boards etc. The house was clean and had lots of windows so it was very bright and cheery.

The whole area of Delaware beaches are amazing. Loved the board walk and downtown of Rehoboth Beach.

Good but not great

  • 3 of 5

The house was a little small. The great room was wonderful for a family of 4. The driveway worked for three cars but we had more and had to shuffle them since it was only one car wide.

Location was perfect.

This was an amazing house. My family and I enjoyed every minute! The beach was simply gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute of our stay! The house was so clean and comfortable! The location was spectacular! The beach was quiet and amazing! The owners had so many toys to make the week complete. We had bikes, boards noodles, chairs, tubes, and umbrellas! The neighborhood was friendly and very quiet! We will be back for sure!

Nice house, convenient to beach, configuration pretty good for our purpose. We had a great time.

  • 4 of 5

Cooking & kitchen equipment was lacking--needs additional & better pots & pans, mixing & serving bowls, larger Pyrex baking dish. Need knife sharpener. Bunk bed terribly squeaky. Could not adjust the thermostat & the constant flow of air made it uncomfortably cool at times.

We appreciated the bikes, boogie boards, extra chairs, outdoor shower, swing, hammock, scooters, washer & dryer.

Owner's Response: We are delighted that you enjoyed your family beach vacation there, and the many toys and amenities included in the rental. Thanks for your helpful feedback so that we can replenish and upgrade our kitchen supplies.There is an ebb and flow of supplies in the summer and it sounds like many bowls, pyrex and sharp knives inadvertently traveled away. We will heed your suggestions and pick up some better pots pans, and replenish our mixing bowls, sharp knives and a (larger) casserole dish asap. We also will make sure we mention the thermostat in our welcome kits. We control the thermostat over the computer and can easily adjust it up or down when guests text or call us. Our handyman will check out the bunk beds..maybe some kiddos before you went nuts jumping around! If anyone can make the squeak go away, he can! If you let us know about any issues, even small ones, during your stay, our handyman will visit, usually same day to correct the issue, even bring supplies like bowls etc. We will make sure to communicate that better too in our welcome kit. We would welcome you back any time you need another dose of Delaware Beach Bliss! Sincerely, Pat
