With more and more homeowners renting out spaces with apps like Airbnb and Vrbo, it’s becoming increasingly easy to find a comfortable place to stay. With younger generations often preferring this type of vacationing to traditional hotels, business is booming for those with extra space to rent out or a second home on the coast.

Of course, a saturated market can also make it difficult to narrow down your search for a place to stay. Vrbo lists over 300 properties throughout coastal Delaware, so there’s a lot to filter through. We’ve done some of the hard work for you. Here are our picks for beach stays in Delaware.
