Fenwick Island house description
Have fun, relax, and enjoy a wonderful family vacation in this beautifully decorated water view home, 'Paradise Found' with its tropical island theme. Enjoy fabulous views from the decks and sun room overlooking the Little Assawoman Bay where magnificent osprey and heron may be seen feeding in your own backyard. This spacious vacation home is located in the waterfront community of Bayville Shores, DE. The community offers beautifully landscaped open spaces for jogging, cycling and relaxing evening walks. Enjoy the lakes and flowing fountains throughout the community. Modern stainless steel appliances, new pillow-top mattresses, hardwood flooring and plush new carpeting throughout distinguish this gorgeous new home.
Located directly across from the pool and fitness center, this home is convenient to all the 'action,' yet... it is peacefully quiet and serene. Beautifully maintained tennis and basketball courts are located just down the street from the home. For more fun in the sun, it's a short 5 minute drive to the Atlantic Beaches (2.5 miles). Enjoy beautiful sunsets while dining at nearby waterfront restaurants. Visit nearby Ocean City's newest gaming attraction, the Casino at Ocean Downs. Take advantage of Delaware's tax-free shopping. 'Shop till you drop' for home and fashion bargains and pick-up those back to school necessities for the kids at the shopping outlets in Rehoboth Beach .
The Bayville Shores community with all its amenities is considered by many to be an all-inclusive vacation spot. Those with special vacation interests will not be disappointed. For the kids... swimming, fishing, crabbing, and biking in a safe, family oriented atmosphere with amusements galore in nearby Fenwick Island and the famous nearby Boardwalks. The community boat ramp offers easy water access. Have fun with the kids on the community crabbing and fishing dock. For golfing enthusiast, more than a dozen golf courses are conveniently located nearby including a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, the Carl M. Freeman Golf Club at Bear Trap Dunes, and Ocean City's riverfront course 'River Run Golf Club', designed by golf legend Gary Player.
Memories are made of this: gathering with family and friends around a fireplace in the spacious great room, enjoying breathtaking water views from the decks, or escaping with a book to the tiled sun room overlooking the bay. There is something for everyone here in 'Paradise Found.'

I, along with my sister and brother-in-law spent 3 days at Paradise Found. My sister and her husband were looking forward to a couple of days away after their daughter's wedding on September 1. I was just along for the "ride". I am so glad they invited me. We felt totally at home at Paradise Found. The kitchen was well-appointed and the furnishings lovely, but still cozy (and immaculately clean which is very important to me and my sister!). We especially enjoyed the few steps we had to take to get to the pool. My brother-in-law enjoyed having the bikes and used one every day. The view from the sunroom was spectacular and we even saw a deer! We truly enjoyed our time away, even though it was too short! Thanks for sharing your beach home with us.

Owner response: Working with our clients, exceeding expectations and ensuring satisfaction, is my favorite part of managing our vacation rental in the VRBO/HomeAway Network. The fact that so many of our clients have taken time to write reviews and express the pleasure of their vacation and rental experience is heartwarming and very much appreciated. Thank you. Bill
The location and townhouse was absolutely perfect for our last minute mini vacation to be able to spend some quality time with our kids and grandkids. The home is beautiful and absolutely the nicest place we have ever rented. It is so clean we were constantly picking up and cleaning after ourselves to kept it that way. We decided last minute to meet our kids who were already going to the beach and they joined us early, We had the best most awesome and friendly dealings with the owner. He was so helpful, friendly and really understood what we were looking for. Would rent from them again and again! A five star for sure if that's the highest rating we can give. The home has everything and more in the kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms and even a pool.Thanks for a fabulous mini vacation and sorry we are filling this out so late!

Our family had a wonderful time at "Paradise Found". Your home is beautiful and spacious. The decor is very nice and the kitchen was very well stocked. We enjoyed cooking out on the grill, taking early morning walks, and bike riding. We also loved the view from the sunroom. The kids loved being only steps away from the pool. The location is perfect. Can't wait to return next year. Frank and Cynthia

Great place to vacation!
Great place to vacation!
A beautiful vacation home, great location and lots of amenities. We had a great week at Paradise Found. Plenty of room for everyone, loved the sunroom with the view of the marsh & the bay. Lots of birds & 1 deer who came around almost every evening. My grandsons fished from the pier almost every night & caught large mouth bass, turtles & eels, they were thrilled & it made it easy for us to keep them entertained. We rode the bikes quite a bit & used the beach chairs & umbrella at the beach. The neighbors were also very nice. Thanks so much for having such a lovely home to rent.

Just spent a long weekend here and had a great time. House was perfect for us and very nice. Kids loved the pool being right outside the front door. Took advantage of the bikes in garage to ride around this very nice and quiet community. Didn't have to worry about bringing beach chairs and umbrellas with us since we were able to use chairs provided. Many nice restaurants nearby. Bill was a pleasure to deal with...called me within 2 hours of my inquiring about the house, was very helpful prior to arriving and even gave us the option of a "relaxed checkout" which was great. We will definitely be renting this house again in the future.

Our stay at "Paradise Found" was filled with all the amenities of a hotel, plus the comfort and convenience of home with the wonderful kitchen, pool & games. Taking small children and babies to the beach can be a struggle but we did not experience that because of the cleanliness and attention to detail in the beautiful home. My 9 month old could crawl on the carpets without me worrying about it and my 4 year old got the pleasure of having her own bedroom and bathroom. The master suite is gorgeous and having a bathroom for each bedroom is very convenient. This house could easily sleep 8 people with the additional cots and pull-out bed. And the kitchen - as a chef I enjoyed having a full kitchen so we could prepare meals, especially for the kids. Plus, with the grill we were about to cook out which we love to do. We enjoyed the easy access to the pool - it's right outside the door! Overall, it's in a great location where you can access all the Delaware and MD beaches in a short drive without being overwhelmed with the congestion and chaos of Ocean City. I would highly recommend this home to families with small children and those with discriminating taste (it's so beautifully decorated). Thanks Bill & Lynne!

We had a great time at Paradise Found. The owners were very professional to work with and incredibly nice. When we arrived the small touches really made a difference, like fresh flowers on the table - it was very welcoming. Cooking in the kitchen was enjoyable - we really weren't at a loss for anything. Although bad weather kept us inside for the start of our stay, it didn't feel like a loss - with five adults and two children we didn't feel cramped, and the board games and movies were great.

We had a blast, the nicest place by far we have ever stayed in. We hit the jack pot finding this gem on the internet! All the ammenities of home. Also close to the beach, and all the major attractions. The owner is great to work with, helping out with tips on food places, shopping... what more could you ask for! Will stay again in the future for sure! Hated to leave and come home.

About the owner: Entering into our retirement years, with over 40 years of friendship, the Yates & O'Brien family's decided to formulate a partnership... a stimulating & fulfilling activity to compliment our friendship. Janine, Lynne & I have always enjoyed the sun, surf & sand. Phil, formerly an avid boater, recently discovered that he & direct sunlight were no longer friends. He does however, enjoy an adventure, as long as it involves good friends and fine dining.
Why the Owner Chose Fenwick Island:
I have been visiting Maryland Ocean Resorts since the mid 60's. When my brother purchased a home in Fenwick Island, DE in 1972, I knew that Fenwick Island was where I wanted to be. Years of 'window shopping' & imagining 'where I would like to be...if only,' led us to the Resort Community of Bayville Shores. Our property, 'Paradise Found' was the perfect choice meeting our personal & investment criteria. It is conveniently located directly across from the pool, fitness center, & offering gorgeous water views from every window throughout. The family resort community offers many family activities. Tennis, volleyball, basketball, shuffleboard, horse shoes, plus walking/jogging trails make this home a fully self-contained vacation resort .
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Unique benefits of this property include the convenience of nearby grocery stores, fine waterfront dining and attractions, such as miniature golf, movie theaters, pontoon and jet ski rentals. There are more than 16 golf courses within a short distance from the home. Nothing can compare to the peaceful tranquility & ambiance of the home's professionally designed decor. To ensure your satisfaction we maintain our home to the highest standard. Phil, Janine, Lynne & I are committed to providing your family with a clean, safe & interesting environment in which to fully enjoy your family's vacation. Together we are Friendship Properties LLC.
