This is the perfect place for one or two couples, small families, seniors, or independent singles who are looking for a quiet, safe, pet friendly, non-commercial "get a way" rental with an incredible location.
After recently returning from a classic Italian "tour", my best friend and I (both seniors) agreed that we needed a vacation! A few weeks later (mid June) we had the good fortune to spend a week at the "Surf-side by the Sand" beach house in Milton, Delaware. The moment we arrived at this quaint,charming little house,, located literally steps away from the beach, and replete with stunning views of the beach and bay water from the living room, dining area, kitchen and porch, we knew we had found something special.
The amenities included,(in addition to air conditioning), a well equipped kitchen,washer and dryer,comfortable queen sized beds (plus 2 bunk beds),a cozy seating area with a flat screen TV(perfect for watching your Netflix or Hulu),a full porch (offering an unobstructed view of beach and bay) with chairs, a table with umbrella, electric grill and bug -chasing Tiki torches, beach chairs,bicycles,a kayak, and a full private outdoor shower.
Each morning, cup of coffee in hand, we sat on the porch and watched the sunrise.Priceless! We spent the week taking early morning walks on the deserted beach,sunbathing and relaxing in the shade of a beach umbrella,wading in the calm water,reading best sellers,listening to music, hand painting tee shirts and shoes, having long pleasant conversations, grilling chicken and burgers, eating outdoors, and totally enjoying our stress free time together. Occasionally we took advantage of our unique location by driving 7 miles to a small shopping center (home to a Food Lion supermarket), and driving 8 miles in another direction to check out name-brand bargains at the Tanger Outlets . Additionally, In this area there is a movie complex , various stores,and many restaurants. We also drove to Rehoboth Beach (20 minute drive) where we walked the boardwalk,shopped in unique boutiques,watched the huge ocean waves,and lunched on lobster rolls and crab cakes before eagerly leaving the crowds of tourists behind and heading back to our peaceful little oasis.
My friend and I enjoyed our stay at "Surf-side by the Sand" so much that we have already booked it for our next beach vacation!
Fabulous huge deck front looks straight to the ocean. You don't even need to get wet or get sandy toes to BE at the beach. We're coming back for sure!
This was a very peaceful spot. The house was very comfortable and the owner, Pat was very accessible via text for any questions I had. The beach was so close and very easy to enjoy from just sitting on the deck or on the beach itself.
