    About this property

    Tranquil Beach Cottage Directly Across From Beach Access-pets & Children Welcome

    This Slaughter Beach Cozy Cottage is looking forward to sharing the beautiful beach with new visitors. The property is located directly across from public beach access so your feet will never get tired of walking to the beach. The cottage features Wi-Fi access and cable TV. However, lounging or reading a book on the screened in patio is sometimes just as relaxing. The cottage is located on two lots with a beautiful view of the Nature Preserve so you will have plenty of space for outdoor fun, bunny or bird watching in addition to your own privacy. There is a spacious outdoor patio area for sunset dinners. Recent renovations include all new floors and ceiling fans in addition to a tankless hot water heater, air conditioning, a brand new washer and dryer and an outdoor shower for added convenience. The tankless hot water system allows for endless amounts of hot water for all of the guests! The cottage is fully furnished and recently renovated. You will find everything you need if you plan on cooking during your stay. There is a gas stove and oven, dishwasher and coffee maker. There is even a grill outside for your convenience. We offer guests the option to use our linens at no additional fee however outdoor beach towels, beach chairs, and coolers will need to be supplied by the guests. During your stay you should expect to see horseshoe crabs, numerous birds and wildlife. The bay at Slaughter Beach offers guests a more relaxing time playing in the water. The waves are small and the tide is remarkable. You will find when the tide is high you can sail boats, swim laps, fish right from the beach and kayak for hours. However when the tide is low you will find an open ocean bottom waiting to be discovered. Take a walk in the bay and discover what lies beneath. Slaughter Beach is located North of Rehobeth Beach and Lewes, Delaware. The Tanger Outlets are close by and offer approx. 130 brand name outlets along the 3 mile stretch of Route 1. Near the Tanger Outlets you will find Midway Speedway Park, an exciting family attraction. It has 5 go-kart tracks for all skill levels in addition to 18 holes of miniature golf. ***We do not advertise on craigslist***

    Great stay!!

    We had a fantastic family vacation at Slaughter Beach! Looking forward to next year already. Great property with everything you need.

    5/5 Excellent

    Clean, quiet, great location

    This home was clean and beautifully renovated. New bathroom, charming kitchen, and plenty of living space for 3 adults and 2 kids. The linens and towels were nice quality and the beds were comfortable. The screened porch was a perfect setting for meals. Beach access is right across the street, a major plus when lugging gear back and forth with kids. Highly recommend this cottage and look forward to coming back!

    5/5 Excellent

    Second year coming, will be back for a third.

    My family and I came last Sept after the loss of my husband and children's father and had an amazing experience. We decided to come back this year and the experience was the same. The beach is so quiet and private, clean, and everyone around you is friendly. My two little girls loved saving Horseshoe crabs and swimming in the water (which is calm, and therefore great for my 3 and 5 year olds). I love the outdoor shower at the cottage, so convenient to get the sand off of us before going inside. Overall, the beach is amazing and the cottage is cozy and comfortable. We will be back next year again. :)

    Beautiful home

    The house is very nice. A combination of the past and the present with the best of both. I typically go to NJ beaches, so the beach did not dazzle me as much as the hugh marsh did. Plus, it rained most of the short time I was there, but I enjoyed the house more therefore.

    5/5 Excellent

    Just what we needed!

    The cottage was a beautiful and quiet retreat. Thank you!
