Property description

Begin your vacation in our sunny, spacious townhome in the gated community of Lighthouse View for sweeping views of the Little Assawoman Bay. Enjoy its welcoming atmosphere with a 2nd Floor cheery Living Room, bright Kitchen and inviting Dining Room. From the Living Room and Master Bedroom, step out onto the Balcony with a drink and watch the boats go by, take a nap or simply gaze at the water and watch the birds at play. You MUST see the views of the Bay from our townhome ... it's like being in another world!

As you view the picturesque Fenwick Island Lighthouse from the Kitchen, Dining Room and 3rd Floor Balcony, imagine that the ocean is waiting for you just over the horizon with its generous soft, sandy beaches - only a walk away. After a full day of sun and fun at the beach, cool off in our 'Pool on the Bay.' Beautiful ...

Car: Recommended

The Fenwick Island Lighthouse has long been an important landmark along the Delaware coast since it was first lit in 1859. Check their website for visitors hours. It's a 'must-see.' Fenwick Island features sprawling sandy beaches on the ocean and the Little Assawoman Bay, offering watersports enthusiasts the chance to explore nature by boating, sailing, jet skiing, parasailing, kayaking or even paddle boarding! Nearby you will find Shark's Cove Marina which is across the Bay from our townhome, Action Watercraft Rentals by Harpoon Hannah's and Coastal Kayak on Coastal Highway/DE 1.

There is a live outdoor Theater, Freeman Stage, for concerts, musicals and plays.

A 'must-do' is Thunder Lagoon Water Park which has a diverse offering of water sports, including The Lazy River and Viking Ship rides. Viking Golf Amusements offers mini-golf courses and go carts. Stroll the Popcorn Co. Boardwalk for a variety of classic beach treats. Across the street, you'll adore Kohr Brothers Frozen Custard and the renowned Fisher's Popcorn - both 'must places.' And spend time on the boardwalks of Bethany Beach and Ocean City, Maryland, and go shopping at the Rehoboth Beach outlets. Our beautiful beach towns offer all of the 'Good Times' you could want!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: My wife and I currently live in Newark, Delaware. I am a Delaware native and she is a long-time transplant from Louisiana. I have been coming to Delaware beaches since I was in high school. My children have grown up on these beaches and continue to enjoy them as adults.

Why the Owner Chose Pine Needle:
My wife treasures our townhome, but has developed a deep love of the ocean, especially the Fenwick Island beach and its natural beauty. Our dream was to have our own place at the beach to enjoy. So now we do. And we want to share that enjoyment with you!

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Vacationing at the Fenwick Island beach for many years is what brought us to discover our Lighthouse View townhome. The first time we saw the unit as it was being built, it made us feel so relaxed that we wanted to stay and indefinitely enjoy the serenity of that unbelievable view. And that's the story of how we came to call it 'Our Happy Place!'
