About Jason Matthews
Jason grew up spending summer vacations at Lewes beach and we now enjoy spending our own vacations here with our boys.
Jason Matthews purchased this House in 2006
Why Jason Matthews chose Lewes Beach
We enjoy the charm of Lewes and the relaxed feel it offers for low-key family time at the beach and in the community, while also offering other amenities and forms of entertainment a short distance away.
What makes this House unique
This property has been in Jason's family for many years and when we designed and rebuilt the current home several years ago, we did so with families in mind, making it a place where extended family could gather and relax together as well as providing space for quiet respites. It has proved to serve us well in this regard and it's proximity to the beach and biking on Bay Ave are a huge bonus with our children.

another great long weekend
this was our third year renting this house and it's been great for our group of 10. proximity to the beach is awesome - no problem coming back for snacks and bathroom breaks - and there's plenty of space for us.
Wonderful Family Vacation!!!
Our family had a wonderful stay here!!! Lots of space, open with lots of windows to let in the natural light! An easy walk to the beach. There is a bike/walking trail near the beach. The kitchen is stocked well. The owner was always quick to respond to questions we had. Plenty of space for family games or to go find your own quiet spot for some reading. A true winner for our family . . . everyone loved it!!!
The house was perfect for our family's four night stay in April. The kitchen is well equipped and the house is comfortable and clean. The owner responds very quickly to emailed questions. We would definitely stay here again.
A really nice place. We would look forward to returning!!
The place was huge and nicely decorated. Easy walk to the beach yet secluded from the traffic.
An awesome place! We all loved it
The home was pristine and the perfect place for our group! I hope we'll be able to come back again soon. Emily Michael
The house is located on Camden Ave which is a side street off of Cedar Ave which runs the length of Lewes Beach. The beach (which is an easy 2 min walk) is more or less 'private' to those staying on Lewes beach as the closest public parking area is over 1 mile away. Also, the beach is large and great for kids as the waves from the Delaware Bay are much smaller than the Atlantic Ocean.
Downtown Historic Lewes:
Second Street has unique, charming shops and a variety of restaurants to choose from. The downtown area also includes historic landmarks, waterfront access, museums, parks, and community events.
Options for biking abound; from a leisurely ride down Bay Ave to more long-distance rides on the bike paths that connect Lewes, Reboboth and Cape Henlopen State Park. Fishing opportunities are plentiful as well. You can surf-fish right off Lewes beach anytime in the off season and during designated hours in the summer. Further, there are piers, inlets, and charter fishing opportunities all within 1-2 miles of the house. For water sports, kayak and paddle board rentals are available through outfitters in Lewes. Cape Henlopen State Park is nearby as well, accessible by bike or car. It offers numerous outdoor activities of its own, including ocean access, hiking, frisbee golf, basketball, playgrounds, and observation towers and other landmarks from WWII.
Rehoboth Beach is a short drive away and offers the traditional boardwalk activities & excitement. Rehoboth is also home to many popular outlet retailers, providing entertainment for the avid or recreational shopper.
