About James and Tricia Reeves

James and Tricia have been residents of Slaughter Beach for years and admired this property and its location. When it became available, they knew it would make a great investment and allow friends and family to also enjoy the gorgeous vistas of the Delaware Bay. We were recently married in Bermuda which is our favorite get away spot so we decided to name this charming little cottage after our honeymoon location.

James and Tricia Reeves purchased this cottage in 2014

Why James and Tricia Reeves chose Delaware

This home is ideally located in the best section of Slaughter Beach with the nicest view of both Marvel Salt Marsh and the Delaware Bay.

Just as advertised

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was quaint and no surprises - on line pics and description were accurate. Everything was clean and the owners thought of everything! We overpacked not expecting them to provide absolutely everything needed for a great stay. We were comfortable.

Not their fault, but know that the beach does have fleas. Weeks later we are still battling them. There were many dead horseshoe crabs covering the beach, but I think this is to be expected in such a natural, quiet, wildlife area like slaughter beach.

My favorite time was sitting on the deck, watching the fishing boats and hearing nothing but nature! I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a quiet vacation and wants to enjoy nature.

Wonderful little house on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great mini vacation at Bermuda West! The house is perfect and cozy, the hot tub was wonderful in the evenings, and the location was great for exploring the beaches of Delaware and little seaside towns. We would definitely stay again.

Funky and Fun

  • 5 of 5

Bermuda west is a perfect rental. It's funky retro vibe is very well done, making it a fun and relaxing environment.

Nothing was missed: comfortable beds and furnishings, quality linens, and every kitchen item you could possibly need. Loved the solitude of the private beach. Don't miss it if you are a beach person. Ruth

Summer Get Away at HomeAway

  • 3 of 5

When we first got o the house, the younger family memebers thought the house was to small, yes compared to the other homes it sure was. Once I walked into the home I said Oh Wow, Love it. My husband made the comment now honey this is just what I want to retire to. Love the short time spent there. Yes it was much to short.

Thank you Jim & Trish for the yummy smorse and the hot tub was really inviting.

Can't thank you enough. God Bless You.

James and Tricia are wonderful hosts, this is my second vacation at Bermuda West and I looked forward to the walks and lazy days on a quiet beach. You hope to go away to a comfortable retreat and these hosts have made sure your stay is memorable!

Slaughter Beach

Slaughter Beach has just been made a certified wildlife sanctuary by NWF. Property is moments from the Dupont Nature Center and sits within the boundaries of a wildlife and migratory bird sanctuary. The beach is a natural beach and not GROOMED as the resort ocean beaches are. We prefer it that way as we are a horseshoe crab sanctuary. While sunbathing and building sand castles on the beach is always available, there are certain times of the year that swimming isn't ideal in Slaughter Beach as the bay bottom becomes more muddy than sandy. Children will love collecting sea shells, looking at horseshoe crabs and watching red knots, heron, egrets and osprey fly overhead. This location is a bird watchers dream! There are many activities for the kids - water parks and putt putt golf in Rehoboth Beach which is 20-25 minutes away. For the adults, there are scores of fabulous restaurants in Lewes (15-20 minutes away) as well as outlet shopping in Rehoboth and Dover Downs Casino and Nascar racetrack to the north (30 minutes). Take the tour of Dogfish Head Brewery Tour a short distance away in MIlton, DE. A short drive into town (Milford) and there is a wonderful farmers market on Saturday morning on Walnut Street plus you can walk the length of the Riverwalk for a beautiful view of the Mispillion River. A newly installed dog park just opened last year adjacent to the Riverwalk and Milford now has its own brewery - Mispillion River Brewery. It is an adorable town with lots of shopping. I always recommend guests bring bikes (though we have a few available) as the biking is the best part of Slaughter Beach - you can ride on flat terrain for miles either north or south with very little automobile traffic. Before traveling to our little piece of heaven, please spend a few minutes researching the horseshoe crab and its roll in the eco system of the Delaware Bay and Atlantic Ocean. They are a fascinating creature!
