  • Beautiful townhouse! Beautiful development!

    "Just got back from a GREAT vacation at Bayside in Fenwick Island! The townhouse was perfect for our family with 3 teenagers. I would recommend bringing your own bikes. There were a lot of people bike riding and we couldn't find a place close-by to rent them. Don't miss a drive or walk out to The Point with kayaking, paddle boarding, and crabbing all included. Pools were perfect and my son had a great time long boarding around the beautiful development. Beach is 10 mins away! We had a fabulous time and would definitely go back!"

  • Miss it already - Home away from home!

    "We had such a great weekend and can't wait to come back! "A Shore Thing" fit our group of 5 families, 3 of them with young kids, very well. We were all very comfortable and immediately felt at home in this wonderful vacation property. It is portrayed perfectly in the photos, is very clean and professionally (tastefully) decorated without being cluttered. The kitchen is fully stocked with utensils for cooking, grilling, blending drinks, and entertaining. My husband and I were in the 'Starfish Room', and it was incredibly comfortable. I wish I could take the bed home with us. Sleeping in each morning was amazing, even in a house with toddlers running around early in the morning. I can tell a lot of care was put in to decorating and making it comfortable. I appreciate that there is a ceiling fan just about everywhere one can be, and all of the switch labels are conveniently labeled. We plugged ipods/ smartphones into the house sound system that played music out the ceiling speakers on the main level, also enjoying movie nights and game nights at "home". We found the location to be great, just outside of the Ocean City chaos in a nice quite neighborhood. We walked (almost every day) to Harpoon Hannah's, which offered both fun day-time meals for the family with live music, and also a late-night bar scene with DJ, boats pulling up to the dock, and dancing on the lit up dock! A lot of fun, and so close. There is another bar/restaurant even closer just across the main road, but I forget the name as we didn't make it there once we got stuck on Harpoon Hannah's. Also close were the Crabcake Factory where we had an excellent bloody mary brunch on the water, and we also walked the just-under-a-mile walk to the beach each day, which made more sense than trying to find parking during high-season. And let's be honest, we could all use the walk with all of the food and beverages we were enjoying! Thank you, Ben, for such a great experience. We will look to you again when we have a chance to make it back to the Eastern Shore!"

  • Great Vaction, Great Resort , Will Be back

    "Dave Pictures do not do justice for this townhouse. It was great. My wife and child stayed with my In-laws. There was tons of room the place was spotless. It was ready to move in as soon as we got there. Everything was in order from the Passes at the front office to getting in with the detailed combo lock. Internet was easy to hook up to and all those decks made viewing the complex wonderful. Great kitchen, modern appliances easy tv directions. The only thing that would have liked would be a combo outside for the garage. There was a garage door on the inside , but once the door was closed you had to walk around front. But I am being really pickey here. It really wasn't that big of a deal. I have seen were others talk about all the flight of stairs , and that is true , there is a lot . However it is layed out to accommodate more people and make for more room. I personally was ok with the layout. We loved the closeness to the pool, tennis court, and listening to the concerts on the back deck. Also how easy it was to keep in touch with Dave if we had any questions or concerns. if your looking for your next vaction get away. Make sure you look at Bayside and Daves place."

You can take an easy walk around the community, meet new friends at the pool, or just relax in the sun room or out back near the pond. Steve and Tam are great and gracious hosts. Thanks for making our stay a vacation treat! Joe & Sharon B."

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.
