Labor Day weekend can be bittersweet for families who know they are not likely to return to the beach until next summer. For the lucky ones who own a vacation home, they can slip away for a weekend dose of relaxation when the weather cooperates.

At the Grande at Canal Pointe in Rehoboth Beach, Del., NVHomes is building luxurious single-family homes in a community within biking distance of the beach and boardwalk.

Less than two miles from the Tanger Outlets, parks and stores, Canal Pointe provides a central location for families to gather in any season for a respite from the stress of daily life. In addition to this prime location close to the beach, residents can enjoy a swimming pool, a club with a fitness center, a bocce ball court and a shuffleboard court within the development.

The community is surrounded by protected wetlands, the Cape Henlopen State Park and the Lewes and Rehoboth Canal.

The homes, which range in size from 1,832 to 3,211 square feet, are priced from $379,990 to $479,990, with a homeowner’s association fee of $470 per quarter. In addition to the recreational amenities of the community, the homeowner’s association fee covers complete lawn care so that residents can spend their time enjoying the beach instead of mowing the lawn.

The homes have low-maintenance features such as 5-inch beaded vinyl siding, along with professional landscaping.

Inside, each home has two finished levels with hardwood or ceramic tile floors in the foyer; a decorative molding package; 9-foot ceilings on both levels; and designer light fixtures, including recessed lighting. Each kitchen includes a pantry and 42-inch cabinets. The homes have hardwood floors in the half bath, double vanities in the master bath and energy-efficient features. Every model has a first-floor master suite, which makes these vacation homes equally appealing as retirement homes.

The Bornquist model, with 2,223 square feet, is priced from $433,990. This home has a two-story foyer with a tray ceiling and an art niche.

A hall links the foyer with an expansive great room with a column, windows on two sides and an optional gas fireplace. The great room opens into the breakfast area and the kitchen, which has a breakfast bar and a pantry. Adjacent to the kitchen is a formal dining room with a tray ceiling, columns and an optional bay window.

The first-floor master suite has a tray ceiling, two walk-in closets and a luxury bath with a soaking tub, a separate shower, two separate vanities and a tray ceiling. Buyers can expand the master suite with a sitting room.

The second and third bedrooms are nearby, with a full bath accessible from the hall. Buyers can convert the third bedroom to a study with double doors. The main level also has a laundry room.

Upstairs is an unfinished bonus room, which buyers can use for storage or finish as a bedroom and full bath.

The lower level includes a recreation room with a wet bar and storage rooms. Buyers can add a gas fireplace to the recreation room and can convert some of the storage rooms into a home office and a media room.
