Enjoy your summer vacation in this Summertime Classic! Original Lewes Beach , Victorian-era home with tropical ambiance and décor, situated within prime, barefoot strolling distance (just 1.5 BLOCKS!) from Lewes Beach. Ready to host your group of family or friends, the house has 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths, plus outdoor shower with hot/cold, lovely living room, big kitchen with breakfast table, separate dining room, spread through 2,600 square feet. Free Internet/Wi-Fi, two televisions, and compact stereo, plus nice book library. Original wood floors on first floor with area rugs, and carpeting in bedrooms. All mattresses and box springs are new in spring of 2017, deluxe gel-foam core over individual coils, and new frames with high profile. Beautiful, total make-over with new windows, storm doors, shutters, paint, driveway, privacy fence, outdoor shower and more on the exterior, and inside new area rugs, ceiling fans, fresh paint, new shaded blinds, new pillows and bed covers, and other great upgrades.
The house has one of the largest fenced yards on Lewes Beach, and actually has TWO yards – a small side fenced yard for watching the kids while enjoying a lemonade on the front porch (front porch has two small picnic tables, ideal for Maryland Blue Crab feasts!), plus a big rear yard fully enclosed by a 7-foot privacy fence, with propane gas grill, large deck, picnic table and umbrella, roomy outdoor shower (hot/cold), and a grassy area for sunning or play. While everyone on vacation wants to enjoy the many dining opportunities in the area, Guests will appreciate the large, well-equipped kitchen with all new appliances in 2016.
Great location, with a quick barefoot 1.5 block walk to the life-guarded public beach, or enjoy a short 3-block stroll to the canal with its restaurants and charter fishing and sight-seeing cruises, or visit the historic downtown just across the canal bridge and filled with many small boutiques and restaurants. Bike, or hop in your car, for a 1-mile drive down to the Cape-May-Lewes Ferry (a 90 minute ride each way, and great for dolphin watching and just relaxing), or visit Cape Henlopen State Park and the many programs for kids and families alike, plus the waves of the Atlantic Ocean at the public beach!
For those Guests who do not want to worry about packing their own towels and linens, we work with an excellent local company that provides everything a vacationer might need - from beach towels and bed linens, to bikes and beach chairs. Almost all of our Guests take advantage of this service, and let us know they like the very reasonable fees and quality of the linens and towels. Guests just notify us a couple days in advance of arrival and we will put them in touch with the linen folks.
Our goal is to consistently provide our Guests with a comfortable, clean, and enjoyable time in our house. If you ever find anything amiss, please let us know promptly upon check-in so that we can try to remedy any problem. Similarly, we expect all Guests to treat the home and property as they would want their own to be treated. Simply because this is a vacation rental is no excuse for misuse. This is our private home - and we are entrusting it to the expected good care of our Guests.
We do NOT allow animals/pets of any sort to be brought onto the property, whether it has four legs, fins, feathers or slithers round. Absolutely no exceptions. Any violation will result in forfeiture of security deposit, plus incur costs of additional cleaning, dry cleaning of every bedspread and upholstered furniture in the home, professional deodorizing, professional spraying for fleas and ticks, plus any damages. .
