Overview

About the property

Nicest Home in Slaughter Beach Available year round endless amenities

Newer home custom constructed in 2007, completed in 2012. We have discounted shoulder season rates for fall , winter and spring. This house has an awesome kitchen and open entertainment area.

The home's style is comtemporary with beach accents . YET NOT STUFFY or Mausoleum like ! How about cool, and bring the kids and the pets! Just no Newfoundlands, aka large dogs! Seriously bring the parents, kids, pets, neighbors, best friends and spread out! We have plenty I mean plenty of room for your amazing get away. Pricing, nowhere, nowhere can you get this kind of home for the price and split the ticket with your friends. Single rooms in Rehoboth near the beach are 200-299, 399 for the Boardwalk. You get our place and can cook your meals and enjoy the serenity ! No traffic, no crowded beaches! Kick back with a glass of wine and escape...

It is a bay beach and that means at low tide sometimes the water can be brackish you will have to wait until high tide to swim or walk 300 yards south where the jetty doesn't affect the shore. IF you're lucky there might be some winds that pick up and you can enjoy the white caps and watch the kids boogie board. Surfing probably if your starting out might happen with the tides changing. But this beach is perfect for little kids the surf is predictable unless there's a storm brewing...you can basically sit and watch the kids comb the beach for treasures. Launch a jet ski, kayak, canoe, paddle board off the front yard and no worries about strong currents and little kids.

Please have an appreciation for horseshoe crabs as they tend to wash up after hi tide, and all the other amazing critters you will find.... kids will love it!

The house has basic cable plus wireless.

The house has 4 bedrooms and a den that can be used as a sleep area. 3 full baths , 2 with jet tubs, an outside shower and a 1/2 bath . Gas grill, views, views, views, memories, memories! You will love it here! Thank you to the families that continue to refer and rebook!

Couldn’t have had an easier, more lovely time with the owner. She was accommodating and friendly!

  • 5 of 5

House is wonderful, plenty of room for ten of us. Location is great, remote enough to be quiet, but close enough to town for supplies. Warm and cozy, and the owner even set up a Christmas tree for us! Directions were easy to follow and we felt well taken care of. Will definitely be back when visiting family again!

Best Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We stayed from Nov 22nd to 26th for Thanksgiving Wknd. & could not find anything to complain about. The house is beyond words from the kitchen w/ Viking appliances to the décor & the view. You will not go wrong w/ this house & the owner Kimberly could not have been any more accommodating even letting us arrive early Wed. since there were not rentals prior...& although pet friendly you would never know as there were no traces of previous pets & even providing throws for the sofas ....take a wknd during the off-season & come find out for yourself....you may want to return when the weather turns warmer..!

Stunning home with spectacular views!

  • 5 of 5

I celebrated my birthday at this house. It is so nice. The kitchen is amazing. The views are spectacular from almost every room in house. The bathrooms are gorgeous with jetted tubs.. Very pet friendly with decks that are enclosed so pets can be out there without a leash. Loved it. Highly recommend. Owner was great!

Beautiful location, gorgeous house, owner with great attitude

  • 5 of 5

The weather was gorgeous and we loved the house. My kids had a great time kayaking. This isn't really a swimming beach, but it isn't that far to get to Cape Henlopen. We loved the more isolated location, but if you like a place where more things are going on, you might want to look a little farther south. This was just about perfect for us. I give the owner 5 stars for having an attitude of wanting to do everything possible to help you enjoy your stay.

Beautiful, comfortable home

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a week in early September 2017. The weather was gorgeous. Nice little beach right in the back yard. We spent a lot of time there. Enjoyed the kayaks and found beautiful shells along the beach. The sunrises and sunsets are incredible! The bedrooms were spacious and nicely decorated. Bathrooms with large showers and jacuzzui tubs. The kitchen is amazing with all dishes, wine glasses, cooking and baking pans galore! Even a wine fridge! They have available books, DVDs, puzzles, and magazines. We had a great time of fun and relaxation. Thank you, Kim, for making your home available to us!

Great Home, Excellent Time!

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough good things about this home, the homeowner and the location! This was our 4th time vacationing in this lovely, well appointed home. My husband, myself and our 2 dogs, love staying here. The home is very clean, welcoming and there's always something new - this year it was the fire pit and flower wall/partition.

The homeowner, Kimberly, is easy to work with. She responds right away and keeps us posted on check-in information.

The Bay is beautiful and we enjoy walking the shore with our dogs. We look forward to saving as many horseshoes as possible during each visit.

Looking forward to our next vacation! Thank you Kimberly - we love your home!

Our home is located in a serene ,pristine, protected marine estuary. You will be surrounded by all kinds of critters and will witness nature from any of our large decks or beachfront yard.

Google the history of Slaughter Beach and you will find lots of history here! The town was founded in 1681 and incorporated in 1931. Slaughter Beach used to be a bustling little get away for Wilmington and Philadelphia. Once upon a time SB had a grocery store, hotel, and even a boardwalk where passengers were dropped off from all over. A really bad storm took that away but a few folks can still talk about the good ole days. Google Fort Saulsbury and you will learn about Slaughter Beaches contributions to both WWI, and WWII! There is a bunker in the back bay now taken over by a goat, boar farm! Did you know that Delaware bays' harbor 1000's of shipwrecks? There were plenty of pirates, Spanish fleets, Irish passenger and Cargo ships trying to make it to the largest Port of Call once upon a time, Philadephia! There are presumably over 200 shipwrecks near or in front of Slaughter Beach! Bring your metal detector you might get lucky. AaaRRRR! Philadelphia and Wilmington were very popular targets during the industrial period, and Germany wanted to destroy them! Slaughter beach was on the way .You can also google the history of my alternate favorite place, Lewes Del, about 19 miles south of Slaughter Beach. You and the kids CAN enter those lookout towers and see cannons, big guns, and the paths where ordinances may still be buried. Very cool!

If you enjoy nature this place is magical. You will find on your exploration :horseshoe crabs, diamond back terrapins, porpoises, Heron, seals, shorebirds, snowy egrets, seagulls, Bald Eagles, red fox, and white tail deer to name a few.

If your a bird watcher: stilts, bobwhite, dowitchers, skimmer shenanigans, wave runners, wood-warblers, black skimmers, sandpipers, swallows, purple martins, and the list goes on. It is a protected bay/marine estuary.

The Dupont Nature Center is one street over, it's a short walk or bike ride. Both parents and kids will love the tour, and pick up some fresh fish from the fish market. You can also launch your boat from the Marina free of charge. Crab from the backyard, fish off the docks, or surf fish from the front yard of our house.

If you like to bike Bay Ave is on the scenic bay trail and you will be joined by many bikers enjoying the trail. It's a perfect ride or walk to connect with Nature. Kayak , sail, paddle board from the front yard. Swimming at high tide and boogie boarding and waterplay are available from 30 steps.

Have a nightly bonfire, walk your dog, and enjoy an adult beverage without permits and restrictions. No parking passes required!

Slaughter Beach minimart is a short bike ride, or long walk, under 2 miles away. They have snacks, some groceries, sunscreen, bait and tackle and rent paddle boards!

We have caught blue crab from our kayaks 50 feet off shore, and flounder off the beach. If you are lucky enough to book this rental for July 4th weekend be sure to attend the sailing regatta there is a lot of fun to be had!

Slaughter Beach pavilion is located 2 miles south next to the fire hall if you want to encounter more people.

We like our serene quiet beach that's blocked off from tourism.

Should you want to venture out for hustle and bustle , the Tanger/Rehoboth Outlets are 22 miles south and there are several waterparks, a boardwalk , and fabulous dining. Tax free shopping in Delaware!

My favorite alternate is Lewes and Cape Henlopen Park with the kids. I mentiond earlier the bunkers and look out towers, be sure to visit the last operated coast guard station, Henlopen Station that manned the waters by actually rowing! Look up Captain Jones...he was my great grandfather!

While in Lewes be sure to take the kids to Lewes Pirate Expeditions they will love it! Make a reservation early and watch the kids take on a pirate and a treasure hunt at sea! Be sure to stop at the Zwaanendaal Museum and ask them directions to the house that still has a cannon ball lodged in the foundation..Circa.. pirate days!

Locally 4 miles away is the historic town of Milford Delaware with many shops, restaurants, antique malls, a very large new library, chain supermarkets, walmart, art studios, bakerys 'La Dolce', parks, fitness centers, there is also a hospital etc..

Every Saturday beginning at 8 am there is a farmers market on canal street with fresh produce arts and crafts, usually kid activities every Saturday. Try the new micro brewery tasting room off airport road, Misipillion Brewery!

NASCAR fans are welcome! Dover Downs and Casino is 28 miles north of us and visit the Sunday brunch if it's rainy! Harrington Casino is only 12 miles and 'Bones' another good choice.

If your really into history take the kids to Frederica and visit the start of the Underground railroad! And the Mason-Dixon Line. We are surrounded by rich history and NATURE!
