The Bidens say a beach home in Rehoboth is a dream come true.

“Throughout our careers, Jill and I have dreamed of being able to buy a place at the beach at home where we can bring the whole family. We feel very lucky that we're now able to make that happen and are looking forward to spending time with our family in the place that matters most to us in the world," Biden wrote in a statement.

Sources close to the family declined to provide the exact location of the house but said it overlooks Cape Henlopen State Park. It’s a location that is important to the Bidens because then-Sen. Biden worked to return that land from the U.S. military to the state of Delaware. The Bidens’ new house was purchased with a portion of an advance Biden received for his forthcoming book, sources said.

Like a lot of other Rehoboth families, the Bidens plan for their new home to be a place where all their children and grandchildren will visit to enjoy the beach.
