This is an amazing place. Kids were all amazed by the decoration. Owner and his family is friendly. One can borrow beach toys, bikes, umbrellas, boots for free. It is the most welcoming place I have ever been. Delaware Beach is only two blocks away.

With my family visiting from way out of town for Thanksgiving, my parents house in Lewes was not sufficient to sleep us all so my wife and I stayed for two nights at this uniquely wonderful establishment. I've watched this property over the years and never realized what a treasure has existed within walking distance of downtown Lewes for all...

What fun to walk around the b&b to take in all the fun and eclectic artwork while being taken care of by our nice, easygoing, and aim-to-please host Rick and his sidekick Lola (Rick's dog). Snacks and beverages always available, as well as beach towels and chairs. He even provides boots and umbrellas for those rainy days! Very comfortable setting...

jan n My daughter booked this fabulously quirky B&B for my birthday. It's like walking into a museum of fanciful, colorful art. You almost hope for a rainy day so you can explore every square inch of this place. If you feel down when you arrive you will feel happy, uplifted and well cared for when you leave. Rick is...

We stayed at the Blue Water House for two nights. We loved the Islamarada room! It was eclectic, bright and so much fun! The freshly made-to-order omlets in the morning were fantastic! We loved the feel of this spot. The decor is a bit wild but it was a relaxing and enjoyable time.

I booked a room at the Blue Water House for the weekend (Friday-Sunday) to celebrate my husband's birthday. What a gem! It's just hidden enough to make it feel like you are off the beaten path, but it is a short walk into town where there are restaurants and shops, and also not a far walk from the Lewes beach....

We took the ferry from Cape May and went to Lewes. We stayed at the Blue Water House. Loved the house, very eclectic. The view and sunset from the porch was great. It was very convenient to the ferry and to the town of Lewes. There were bikes to use to travel to the beach or dinner. Antonio was very...
