  • The Perfect Getaway

    "When initially hearing my family would be staying at this location, I was unsure of whether staying a few miles from the beach would be a downside but I was wrong. It is so close to the beach that it did not detract at all. I found it to be a plus. The owners take great pride in making this a true family beach get away - that is obvious from the decor - light, airy and comfortable - a place that screams home away from home. The pictures truly depict what the place looks like - I have been to plenty that do not! It had ample space for all of us to gather at the same time in the living/dining area - and the rooms were private and clean - and I loved the two balcony areas off the second floor - it allowed for escape time away from the main living/dining area to read and relax. All amenities were there - we brought some things unsure if they would be supplied (ie a blender, beach chairs) but they were. The owners were a joy to work with - responsive and willing to answer any questions I had. They were open to suggestions/thoughts after the fact and truly made me feel like they cared that we enjoyed our vacation. I also was able to find a very nice place to see the sunset across the way at a place called "The Point." It is approximately 3 miles across the way (same side as Harris Teeters) and gave the best views I have ever seen of the sunrise. The secludedness of it made it a perfect place to reflect on life. And it also had space designated to launch a kayak (of note - no motorized watercraft can be launched from it). In short, we have stayed twice now at this beach house. Given the opportunity to stay on the ocean/bay, I would still opt for this house if it were open as I have nothing but positive memories associated with this vacation home and plan to continue renting in the summers to come."

    "We stayed at one of this property owner's homes this summer - they have three gorgeous homes - and liked this one - the Indian home - just as much as the other -called the Red home, We had the pool heated and with it and the 7 person hot tub this adults only group really enjoyed being using the huge pool area as well as the ocean, just to sit as the water wash chillllly. The bedroom selections were great and the home in perfect condition."

  • Russ & Linda

    "Our family of six adults and two young children had a wonderful time in this rental and in the Bayside Community the end of July 2014. The house was well appointed and maintained. All the family enjoyed activities which are part of the resort: crabbing, kayaking, tennis, excellent pools, and its close to Assateague and Ocean City beaches. A free shuttle bus provided transportation to Fenwick Island beach. The owner was a pleasure to deal with. He was always prompt in returning calls and most accommodating."

Fenwick Island Travel Tips

Spend Your Time on Fenwick Island

Delaware’s Fenwick Island is a small resort town that sits on a barrier island situated between Little Assawoman Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. The most southwestern of the state’s beaches, the location allows you and your family so many options on what to do. Whether you want to go out and do it all or stay relaxed and have fun in the sun, Fenwick Island is your perfect vacation destination. The year-round community welcomes visitors through every season of the year. Let us give you a few tips and suggestions to planning the perfect vacation to Fenwick Island.

Book Fenwick Island Vacation Rentals Instead of Hotels

When it comes to booking Fenwick Island vacation rentals instead of a hotel, the choice is clear. When you stay in a rental, you can avoid the hassle of staying where crowds of other people are also staying. You will have your own private haven. Depending on your personal style and preferences, you can book a variety of accommodations including villas, houses, or even condos. You can even rent a sprawling beachfront estate! When you avoid the hotels, you not only avoid the tourists but you achieve complete control over your vacation. You decide your own schedule.

Helpful Travel Tips

Staying in Fenwick Island condos can really be a lot of fun but there are a few things to keep in mind when planning your trip. Though Fenwick Island is known for its beautiful beaches and as a prime vacation destination, it does have about 400 year-round residents. During peak vacation season, the population can grow to exceed 5,000 people! That means the one major road (Delaware Route 1) can get quite crowded. Parking is also limited so always be prepared.

Something for Everyone on Fenwick Island

It is undeniable. Everyone that visits Fenwick Island will have the time of their lives! The Atlantic Coast of Delaware is meant for every member of your family. The shopper, the surfer, the sun goddess--you name it, they'll be happy there! Additionally, there are historic sites, natural parks, and plenty of beaches to spend your days. And anyone staying in a Fenwick Island accommodation is just minutes away from the fun!

Nature Activities on the Island

As we have mentioned, there is plenty to do on Fenwick Island. For nature-lovers, bird-watching is a must, especially at the Delaware Seashore State Park. Along the bay, you will find a number of salt marshes that are home to ducks, geese, spot osprey, loons, herons, and even bald eagles! And if birds are not enough, consider whale-watching! You can book a tour to catch a glimpse of the whales but you may also get lucky enough to see a Humpback right from the shore!

Outdoor Fun on Fenwick Island

There is no question that plenty of your vacation on Fenwick Island will be spent outdoors. Some of the most beautiful beaches in the northeast can be found in Delaware vacation rentals which makes fun in the sun a requirement. If you love watersports you are in luck. Spend your days jet skiing, waterskiing, parasailing, kayaking, sailing, wind surfing, and swimming. You might even consider renting a kayak or boat for a little family adventure. For the avid fisherman, there is no shortage of crabbing and fishing either!

Sights to See

New England is a beautiful place and Fenwick Island is no exception. With plenty of historic sites along the way, you can see historic homes, museums, and old lighthouses. It is possible to book a tour of the regions to see the sights which is a wonderful way to spend the day. One place that should be on the top of your list is the Costen House Museum and Rose Garden. The preserved Victorian home is a short distance away in Pocomoke City, Maryland. If you would like to stay a little closer to your rental, check out the DiscoverSea Shipwreck Museum on Ocean Highway. You and the kids will enjoy free admission to view a plethora of artifacts from various shipwrecks from the 17th through 19th centuries.
