Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

Beloved by renters in years past, #1 Addy is back on the market. Located on a street with no through traffic, you will have access to Middlesex’s private beach. The house has been renovated to include skylights, central heating and air, Wi-Fi, two cable TVs, DVD player, new washer and dryer, and an upgraded outside shower. There are three bedrooms and 1 1/2 baths downstairs, one large bedroom, full bath and loft upstairs. Two open decks are favorite lounging areas for morning coffee or evening cocktails. The dining room and two bedrooms give out onto a large screened porch that runs across the back of the house. The established landscaping creates a cool green refuge from the hot summer sun. You will have access to a gas grill, four bicycles, beach chairs and assorted toys, and a hammock. It’s a great place to build your summer memories with family. And in colder months you can get away for a weekend or winter holiday to enjoy the brick fireplace, the Delaware shore’s slower pace, and the beach’s magical winter light. Middlesex Beach is away from the crowds but within a quick bike ride and strolling distance of Bethany's vibrant boardwalk, with shops and restaurants.

About Ann Mills or Tish Mills

Our parents built this house in 1968, making modifications to the structure to ensure plenty of indoor and outside space. It has been a refuge for our family ever since. It was a constant when we were younger and lived in foreign countries -- it was a refuge through those transient years and in through later stages in life. Much care has been given to selecting furniture and art, while maintaining the spirit of the 1960s. Once you arrive you will never want to leave. It has been a great place to relax, spend time with family and friends, cook great meals, and build lasting memories. We recently winterized it, installing central heating and air and upgrading the windows so that we can now enjoy it year round.

Ann Mills or Tish Mills purchased this cottage in 1968

Why Ann Mills or Tish Mills chose Delaware

Our parents rented cottages in Rehoboth and Ocean City in the mid 1960s. They then fell in love with Middlesex Beach and built this cottage in 1968. They are both deceased and the cottage has now been passed down to the next generation. We love it more than ever.

What makes this cottage unique

The pine and bayberry trees in Middlesex Beach create a sense of calm and privacy that is unique to this stretch of the Delaware coast. The private beach means fewer crowds. In some respects Middlesex Beach is frozen in time -- a simpler and more relaxed time.

Such a cozy, welcoming spot!

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed at Bethany Beach several times over past 20+ years. This was our 1st time at #1Addy and absolutely loved it. The home has such unusual and quirky charm! Not a home boasting large spaces and complete updates; instead offering warmth and charm of well planned spaces. Notes throughout helped us navigate the details of occupying unfamiliar spaces. Very colorful and unique decor which gives guests the sense of being part of something quite special. Plenty of choice of areas to have solitude....wonderful back screened porch with paper lanterns, side porch filled with flowers, secluded seating area in side yard or even the cozy chairs outside master bedroom on front porch. Perhaps my favorite space was the kitchen which offered a clear view of most living spaces, yet afforded a wonderful work area for the cook! While very small, I absolutely loved it! With 5 children under the age of 10 the safety of the end of a dead end street allowed for endless cycling back and forth.....and opportunity for the 4 year old to master the bicycle (which we did bring with us). Three of the four adults rated it best ever!

Wonderful getaway-- quiet, woods within walking distance of the beach

  • 5 of 5

We found this a perfect place for an intergenerational family vacation: the house was so comfortable and well-equipped: details like grip bars in the shower, a kitchen generously stocked with all the dishes and pans one might need, lots of books and games, and shampoo in the wonderful outdoor shower were just a few details that come to mind. We loved the convenience of walking to the beach and the quiet neighborhood. We also appreciated the owner's friendliness and thoughtfulness. We built so many good family memories in our week there, and we would definitely rent this house again and recommend it highly!

An amazing place to stay 👍👍👍

  • 5 of 5

My son and family were the first in the door - "this is amazing" - a beautiful quiet street - ends at the house. The owners are super thoughtful. Very clean and soooo much space.

Great walking/biking path behind the house.

Close to beaches - clean well maintained - easy to get to the whole coast from here.

I strongly recommend # 1 Addy👍👍👍👍👍

Relaxed at the "Happy House"

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Ann again for being so gracious and getting this wonderful home ready for me and my friends. It is such a comfortable welcoming home with everything you could want. Beds are fabulous. With just a short walk to the beach we had the best of beach and peace & privacy at 1 Addy oasis. This is my 2nd visit and hope to return again soon.

Location

Bethany Beach -- just a mile north - has summer concerts on the boardwalk every Saturday night, ice cream parlors and lots of benches to sit on and enjoy the family crowds. Bethany Beach Books is a great place to pick up a mystery novel . Amusement parks are located in both Ocean City and Rehoboth - each about 15-20 minutes away. Boat rentals are close by. The town of Lewes provides great shopping. The adjacent state park is a must see for WWII buffs.
