Being two blocks from the beach is wonderful! Rick has any beach equipment that you need including bicycles. Water and snacks are always available! Rooms were clean. There is a great lounge in the top of the house that has games and a ton of books.

Rick was friendly and helpful without being intrusive. The weary traveler is greeted, not by a complimentary glass of wine, but by a table with a dozen bottles of wine, a refrigerator stocked with beer and sodas, multiple munchies, etc. The Blue Water House is a live-in work of art with a delightful upbeat surprise around every corner from the entrance to the third floor lookout. Rick has a keen artistic eye. The staircase is constructed of a dozen kinds of materials, and somehow it works. Note that the Blue Water House is family friendly so there may be kids bouncing around. We enjoyed them and they were quiet at night, but earplugs may be in order at times.The Blue Water House was the highlight of our trip - thanks Rick.

The earlier five star reviews are on point. We lucked into Rick's little oasis last time. This year our first and only search was to see if he had a room available when we wanted to be in Lewes. The recent enhancements just added to the already first rate experience. If you forgot to bring something, and if Rick doesn't have it on hand, he'll make sure you have it.

We love this bed and breakfast! Rick and Lola are great! Great food, snacks, water, beer, and wine provided...Free. Free use of beach chairs,umbrellas, bikes, towels, etc. Love the colorful rooms and art. Rick was not obtrusive but we always had everything we needed and wanted. He was very helpful in finding local fishing tours, kayak rentals, etc. We will be back! Thank you for a very relaxing week!

We had a wonderful time at the Blue Water House in Lewes. It was definitely a cool experience, and thanks to Lola and her master, Rick, we felt right at home. We had just the right amount of privacy and camaraderie from our host, and the little touches were thoughtful and made the time immensely relaxing. Worth a repeat visit!

Room Tip: The Key West room was great, especially inviting for a good night's sleep after a day at the beach and a wonderful dinner out.
