Fenwick Island house description
Relax on the deck with it's view of the Fenwick Lighthouse and let the world roll by. Choose the covered porch in front or the sun deck in the back. From either it's only a 5 minute walk to the sandy beaches of Fenwick Island and cooling your toes in the Atlantic Ocean or a block to Ocean City, MD.

Don't want to cook, there's plenty of food within a short stroll. Pizza, Ribs, Crabs, Ice Cream all between you and the beach, so it's all really close. Dunkin Doughnuts down on the corner and Fisher's Popcorn just across the street.
There's miniature golf and a water park down on the corner as well. Plenty of shops to browse in and another restaurant on the canal. Walk to the Ocean City bus stop and for a buck ride all day.

We stayed the last week of July and couldnt have asked for more. The home is beautifully decorated and very confortable. It was well maintained and clean. We enjoyed the outside deck and short walk to the beach. The traffic noise was noticable when we arrived, and blended into the surroundings as the week passed. My wife loved it so much, that we booked 2014 on the spot!

A Welcome Surprise!
A Welcome Surprise!
We stayed at this beach home for the Labor Day weekend. Upon arrival the home was clean and very nicely decorated. It is evident that the owner's take pride in this property. Our small group of adults had a wonderful weekend eating out at nearby restaurants and taking daily walks to the beach. The house is located close to the beach, a short walk away. Thank you for allowing us to rent your well-appointed and comfortable home. We hope to do this again in the future.

We've been looking forward to this vacation for a very long time. My husband kept saying don't get your hopes too high. This beach house was everything they portray and more. The location was as described. The property was nicely landscaped and well maintained inside and out. The kitchen items including the pots and pans were of good quality and you would not be afraid to use them. The house was immaculate and very charming. The owners were friendly and very helpful, Though we did enjoy our time at the beach, we spent a lot of time at the Delaware State Park and Assateague National Park. Miniature Golf was abundant as were many quaint garden and gift shops. There was a beautiful bike train just behind the Rehobeth Outlets and it was an easy ride even with young teenagers. I would certainly recommend this property to friends and family, in fact, I already have.

This is a beautiful home, fresh, clean, and well cared for. Lovingly decorated and maintained. Very comfortable furniture, home has lots of ammenities. Well equipped kitchen. Short walk to beach, but can be a little challenging with very small children due to having to cross Rt 1, but not impossible. Traffic noise of Rt 54 slows during night, but still present. Really nice home, great owners to work with, very reasonably priced for all the extras offered with this vacation rental. Highly recommended.

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: A new job brought us to Delaware in 1997 and we quickly found the beaches after that. Dennis is originally from California and says that the "locals" are much more 'laid back' than the people in California. In no time at all we fell in love with the beaches, the people, and the relaxed lifestyle down here.
Why the Owner Chose Fenwick Island:
Originally this property held a 10x50 trailer that leaked all the time. We decided it was time to upgrade and built the house. We did all the finish work ourselves and have been steadily adding little touches here and there. Fenwick Island is in a great location. It's just inside "Tax Free" Delaware and just across the street from Ocean City, Maryland. Easy access to the outlet stores to the north and the famous Ocean City boardwalk to the south.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is open and airy, the decks are warm and comfortable. The Fenwick Lighthouse is just across the street and is a wonderful sight as you sit on the deck and enjoy your morning coffee and evening beverage. A very short walk to the beach and on the corner there are two mini-golfs, go-carts, Ice Cream, Popcorn and much more.
