  • Most BEAUTIFUL bay house in the world!

    "I absolutely loved my time at this luxurious bay house. It has everything you could ever want or need right on the property, including an elevator!! It has enough bedrooms and space to sleep an entire extended family, and the beautiful glass windows make it seem as though you are literally sitting on the water. I will definitely go back again many times!"

  • Great house, but not accessible

    "Generally, the beach house was great, but the accessibility was not. The house was listed as accessible, but none of the bathroom doorways were wide enough to accomodate a walker or wheelchair. Bathrooms didn't have grab bars either. The elevator was very tempermental. I don't think the owner realized that having an elevator is not sufficient, and is planning to reconsider listing the property as accessible. Otherwise, the house was great! Very convenient to both beach and bay!!! Crossing Route 1, even with little kids and a wheelchair, was not a problem. The location is also convenient to Bethany, Fenwick, and Ocean City by car or bike (there are bikes in the garage, but they have seen better days). The house itself is very nice! Lots of light. Lots of stairs. Lots of beach artwork. :) The master bathroom is amazing - huge shower, jacuzzi tub, double sinks! We want a bathroom like that at home!! The only catch is the people staying in the other bedroom on that floor have to walk through the master bedroom to access the bathroom. The den was a huge plus as well. We used it as the kids' bedroom. They loved it and didn't want to move to a bedroom when one became available. I would recommend adding curtains/blinds for the glass doors so you can block the light from the dining room as desired. The pool was another huge plus of this property. Beach, pool, jacuzzi. Beach, pool, jacuzzi. Loved it! A word of warning about the beach because I was a little shocked when we first arrived. The beach at this location does not have lifeguards and there are vehicles driving on the beach. At first I was rather disturbed by the vehicles, but it turned out to be more of an aesthetic issue than a safety issue. If you want a lifeguard, you can go to the State Park, which is a 2 minute drive away. Last, but not least, I challenge future visitors to complete the ladybug puzzle. My daughter pulled it out right when we arrived and it took us almost the entire week to complete it."

  • Loved our stay at Bayside.

    "Just got back from our vacation at Bayside Resort. We had an awesome time! The house was beautiful, clean and perfect for all 14 of us. Plenty of room to spread out. We loved the amenities at Bayside and even enjoyed a free concert at the Freeman Stage. The kids, teens and adults loved the pools, fitness and rec center, carousel and enjoyed walking the safe grounds of the neighborhood. The short drive to the beach at Fenwick Island was great. Never any traffic. The close proximity to Ocean City was a plus! I would recommend this property, the owner was nice and very accommodating. We hope to come back next year!"

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.
