|Minimum Stay||1 - 7 nights|
Be the first to rent for key holidays and enjoy a superb July 4th with lots of fireworks. No need to bring your own as you can see all the way to Cape May New Jersey and surrounding beaches without the crowds or the parking and most important no noise!
One of the last pristine true beach cottages left that has been updated with the basics in modern, shower, bath, new appliances and air conditioning. Its not your newer beach McMansion so please respect we respect quiet and quaint.
We are directly located on the beach and offer serenity that most resorts can no longer offer. Bring your family, friends and pets. Just remember it is a secret! Shhhhhh!
Dear Kimberly, As I expected the moment I booked your lovely cottage, we had a splendid stay. In fact, the experience exceeded our expectations. We will be returning more frequently now that we have discovered this remote and undisturbed corner of the world. My friends and I thank you for everything! Hopefully next time we will get to meet you and have a glass of wine :} I will be in touch , take good care Behrad ( and friends)
Our family of 4 (3 generations) + our 2 senior dogs had a really lovely time at this charming beach cottage right on the bay. The weather was picture perfect, which just amped up the enjoyment of our extended weekend there. Days were seasonably cool and long walks on the beach were on the agenda every day. Sunrises, moonrises off the porch looking out over the bay, sunsets over the marsh from the deck, just beautiful.
The owner was a pleasure to work with and quick to respond to any questions we had. The cottage was equipped with everything we needed, and having linens there was a big help! We made good use of the available heaters since the nights were cold, and they kept us toasty. We did bring in bottled water, though, as the water had an unpleasant sulphur smell (rotten eggs), but that was not a big deal for us. The washer/dryer was great to have as well.
Thanks, Kim, for sharing this gem of your with us 🙂We look forward to coming back to this rustic cottage on the beach for more R&R in the future!
We love the beach in the off season and this cottage was a perfect fit for us. It had everything and more that we needed. The cottage was clean, comfortable, and homey. We (my husband and I)
and our golden retriever, Sally Mae, loved its charm. It is in a quiet location and when you walk down from the porch you're on the beach which was amazing. The weather was cool the first couple of days and we did use the heat which worked just fine. After the second day of our vacation, we had a little bit of a heat wave for mid-October in the upper 70s, low 80s! The weather was sunny and gorgeous; we were so blessed to be there during the full hunter's moon....beautiful! During the full moon, at high tide the back bays come up over the road a bit but they do recede after a few hours. It was no big deal at all to us. We just planned accordingly when we wanted to go to town etc. There are several restaurants close by which were delicious. Kim was super accommodating to us and always very reachable. Thanks Kim! We hope to come back next fall!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and even though Tropical Storm Hermine cut our stay short by one day, we couldn't have been happier with the accommodations and our surroundings. There's nothing better than being able to let the kids play on the shore right in front of the house within clear view of the porch. We can't wait to come back next year, hopefully for 2 weeks instead of just 1!
We needed a beach house for a vacation with our daughter, her husband, and their four children, ages two through six. We hoped this older place would be OK. We fell in love with it. The warm tones of the wood paneling, floors and ceilings gave the house a homey, cozy feel, inviting us into a simpler life. The open floor plan was ideal for us. Our daughter's family took the upstairs bedrooms. The curtained doorways made it easy to keep track of who was where, and doing what. Upstairs, there's a small gap between the edge of the floor and the outside walls, allowing air--and the sound of kids who aren't sleeping--to travel between upstairs and downstairs, making the baby monitor almost unnecessary. My husband and I had the downstairs bedroom, the only one with a door. We all gathered around the big dining table and enjoyed lots of real food.The toddlers played on the floor with their trucks. We set up the kiddie pool on the rear deck and spent lots of time relaxing out there.
The beach was our back yard--no ordeal of packing up for a day in the sun. The water was a little muddy, but safe for the little ones, with no surf or undertow. Beachcombing was amazing. We picked up colorful smooth stones, shells of many kinds, and polished glass fragments. The horseshoe crab shells provided endless fascination. There was plenty of soft sand for digging and walking the beach. By the way, this is the most picturesque beach I've ever visited, with its sweeping curved shoreline, plain houses painted in soft colors, a stone jetty, and a tiny town across the river. No glitz here. The most exciting event was watching the Coast Guard conduct a water rescue training session out past the jetty.
The water that covered the road at high tide gave us a chance to see minnows and blue crabs up close. The little bridge down at the bend in the road was the perfect fishing spot. We spent so much time in the kayaks that all the adults went home with tired arms and shoulders. We took two day trips, to the Dover AFB Museum and the waterpark at Killens Pond. I recommend both. The Family Dollar in Frederica is all the store you'll need, once you've stocked up after arriving.
And Kim made us feel really welcome, answering questions, helping me with the wifi, and sending out a handyman when a toddler walked through a screen door. What a gracious hostess! Thank you, Kim, for a wonderful week. We hope to return again and again.
This is the first home I have ever rented, and I can surely say the experience was more than perfect. The owner was kind and friendly, and 100% understanding to all concerns that we had as guests. To begin, renting and booking was a piece of cake, which made the experience start off great.
When we arrived to the house, it was more beautiful than we could have ever imagined. The charm that this 1920's home had was like no other, creating a relaxing atmosphere for the whole week.
There were 12 of us to begin, with people coming and going throughout the whole week. Being college students, we didn't mind sleeping on couches and air mattresses. If we would have had just 12-14 people, there would have been plenty of bed space for all of us. My boyfriend and I slept in the "master bedroom" which was beautiful hardwood, and it was simply gorgeous to look at. Overall, we loved the home and all of its amenities.
This house is on the bay side, which is incredible to see. The sunsets and sunrises in the morning were always gorgeous and it was fun to have beach fires. Another sight to see is the amount of horseshoe crabs. This house is right along a sanctuary, so it's pretty hard to swim with all of them around. However, with Rehoboth Beach being just a drive away, this was not an issue for us. We were still able to kayak, lay out, and play games on the sand. The only issue was the amount of bugs from the crabs and the bay, but this didn't deter us from having a wonderful trip. I can truly say that I hope to be able to rent this home again and share more memories with people here. The nature and charm was just amazing, and I hope that we will have the opportunity to stay again. I would recommend this home to absolutely anyone.
Its hard to express how much we enjoyed our stay. The house was very clean and well kept. It had everything you could possibly need. We enjoyed the beach and the view was more than amazing. I just can't say enough how much we enjoyed everything and hope that we will be able to return. Kimberly was very helpful in making sure we had directions and that everything was in good shape for us. Our time there was just too short!
