About Alice Lee Sadleir
For many years my daughter as been coming to Lewes. She would try to talk my husband, Tom, into coming down but he would always say, "what do I want to go to Lewes, De. for?" He finally relented (there were two women nagging him now) and down we came! We were here for about 45 minutes and after having a crab cake at Gilligan"s, he said, " let's buy a house, I'm buying a boat and going fishing, you can shop!" I was close to retirement from The Vanguard Group and Tom was retired from the Bryn Mawr Fire Company due to illness, so we sold our home in Malvern, Pa.. We saw this home and loved it. Of course, we went shopping imagine that! My daughter Leeanne, went one way and I went the other. Mission completed! Unfortunately, Tom passed away and after a few years I decided to rent it out. I love my home, yellow sofas and all. I wish you all the enjoyment I've had in this home, after all, IT'S YOUR VACATION! Enjoy, Lee aka Nanny
Alice Lee Sadleir purchased this House in 2006
Why Alice Lee Sadleir chose Historic District
Our home has a wonderful 'feel' about it. We chose this house because we can walk almost anywhere, the overall feeling of relaxation whether we're sitting on the front porch with family or just enjoying some steamed clams and a salad on the screened in porch while listening to some nice music. More of our favorites are having that first cup of coffee on the screened in porch, listening to the birds sing, watching the news or reading a paper. I could go on and on....
What makes this House unique
The house has plenty of room and is so comfortable. The nearness to downtown Lewes is always a plus. We enjoy sitting on the front porch swing and watching the world go by. The close proximity to Lewes also allows us to walk to Second Street after dinner, window shop and get an ice cream cone from King's, then walk it off by taking a longer route home.

This lovely house has spacious bedrooms, open living/dinning room, wonderful veranda, and a fabulous fenced-in back yard with screened porch. It was absolutely perfect for the 60 year olds, the 30 year olds and the under 5 set. While the weather wasn’t terrific the week we were there, the town of Lewes is a short walk and has a great park for the kids...and ice cream store.
We had a wonderful stay at this lovely, well-located home close to Lewes beach and a short drive from Cape Henlopen State Park. Highly recommended!
Family Vacation Fun!
LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this house! Great space with lots of different areas for rest and relaxation. Plenty of room for 8 adults, 2 children and 1 baby. Walkable to main street with great restaurants. Quick bike or drive to several beaches. This house was perfect; exactly what we were looking for! Responsive owner, easy transaction. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay' can't wait to go back!
Nanny's house is absolutely charming. Plenty of room for everyone to find a cozy nook to tuck in to and ample space for everyone to gather together. The interior woodwork and architecture is lovely. The screened-in porch was our perfect place to start the day and share breakfast together. The yard around the porch is completely fenced in, providing a safe haven for the little ones to be outdoors but still be close by. Location of the home was just ideal! Beach choices are plentiful with the calm Lewes Bay option or Henlopen Ocean access is just a couple of miles away. Centrally located it was a short little walk to the center of town (where you can find King's Ice Cream) or you can hop on the local bike trails by riding a few blocks. Lewes is beyond charming with so much to do and see and the owner was so helpful with a bounty of suggestions. Or... you can just hang out on the front porch with coffee and a good book. The little ones liked to play guess the color of the next car passing (hint: white is pretty popular). One of our favorites though, the outside shower! Would definitely return again and take advantage of this cozy repose.
Thank you for choosing "Nanny's Beach House" for your vacation. It's so nice to hear your enjoyed your stay. I too always enjoyed the outside shower when I lived there, it's so refreshing.
We hope to see you again next year!
Exceptional second stay
This was the second year we rented this house for a three-generation family trip, and our experience was every bit as good as last year. This house is clean, well-stocked, and in a great location for those who like to walk to town. Though it was easier to take a car with the grandchildren to the beach, the rest of us chose to take the pleasant walk there every day (less than a mile). The owners couldn’t be nicer. Our week there had a few rainy days, and the screened porch made our indoor time much more enjoyable!
It was an absolute pleasure to have you and your family back. Thank you for taking care of my home as if it were your own. Hope to see you back next year!
A wonderful house
We enjoyed our stay tremendously. This is a lovely home right near downtown Lewes. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch most mornings drinking coffee. The house is stocked with the essentials, which was very nice. The house is a little noisy, the doors dont close easily upstairs, and with my older parents sleeping on the 1st floor, we had a hard time staying quiet. Thank you very much for a great stay!
