  • fabulous views, great layout

    "We were two families, totally nine people, with 20+/- year old kids. The house suited us perfectly. The open kitchen and living room, plus the adjoining deck allowed us to all be together, but not on top of each other. The bedrooms were comfortable and with all the adults, we also appreciated having a bathroom for nearly every bedroom. The views in the photos are accurate. The views are that beautiful. A very peaceful and private setting. The photos of the house are accurate as well. We were also very pleased with the location. Beaches, restaurants, grocery store, etc., are all very convenient. All of this and waterfront, too. If you are inclined to take in the busy life of Ocean City, it's right there. If you want to skip it, no problem. The cons: The pillows were tired and the bedding could stand to be updated. The kitchen lacked serving bowls and platters, and the knives were frustratingly dull. The pros: The owners are very easy to work with and are truly committed to helping you have a great vacation. This has got to be the cleanest house we ever rented, which we greatly appreciate."

  • Enjoyable stay

    "We had a wonderful stay at this spacious, clean, and well-located condo. While we enjoyed the property itself and its many amenities, including the beach, bay, and pool, we were a little disappointed in the linens/paper products policy and in the fact that other supplies we would typically expect were missing, including sponges, dish washing liquid, and trash bags. We ended up having to buy all of these things, after having to bring all of our own towels and linens, which was a pain. Other than this, the owner was helpful, and the property itself provided for a fun family vacation."

  • Lovely and spacious bayside condo

    "This was our first stay in a condominium and everyone was blown away with how nice and spacious the condo was. We had 8 adults and a two year old with plenty of space for everyone. It was really nice having 4 full bathrooms and 4 bedrooms so everyone had privacy and more than adequate accommodations. The view of the bay and Ocean City was great with Herons and Egrets walking just outside the condo. Fireworks could be seen in OC in the evening but from a serene distance. Morning coffee and evening drinks were enjoyed on the balcony. We even had relatives visit and there was room to eat for 14. Parking was great and there are 3 restaurants next door. We visited the boardwalk in OC but were relieved to return to the peace and quiet of the condo. It is 10 minutes from the Fenwick Island state park on a busy day and a 1/2 hr drive to Assateague Island. The kitchen has full utensils including an electric pancake griddle, a blender, coffee maker, and Keurig machine. Being able to wash the beach towels every night was a big plus. All the rooms had cable TV and WiFi internet access. Everything seemed clean and well maintained. The only thing the condo lacked was an elevator but the stairs to the living area and the bedrooms were wide enough to allow easy access when carrying luggage. This is a very pleasant relaxing place to vacation near the shore."

  • Awesome!

    "Our family rented this beautiful home for a week in July 2014 and it was everything it claimed to be online. The home is magnificently furnished, has fine linens so there is no need to bring any and the elevator is a big plus for luggage and groceries. The bottom level recreation room is unbelievable! The library was a real favorite at night after a long day outdoors. As far as the outside, the pool is great to sit around or cool off at after the beach. The views of the beach from the upper decks are fantastic!"

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.
