This is a Great Off-Season, Long Weekend Destination...


Welcome and thanks for your interest in our home. The community of King’s Grant is located on Fenwick Island, north of the municipal town limits and State Park beach concession area.

Community Details: King's Grant encompasses townhouse units located ocean front and bay front. 47 King’s Grant, “The Shore Thing” is a BAYFRONT home, located in the northern section of the community offering larger units, more living space and unobstructed views.

Our unit is a 3 story town home with unobstructed views of the dunes and ocean views from the second floor. The ocean beach is literally across the street. The bay is our 'back yard'. Our family began to vacation on Fenwick over 20 years ago when we wanted a slightly quieter location than Ocean City or Bethany. We purchased our home in King’s Grant 16 years ago and have thoroughly enjoyed owning it!

The beach that we have the privilege of enjoying is directly across the street. You can see the beautiful dunes from our front porch and the ocean from the second floor of our house. From our front porch, it takes about 4 minutes to touch sand.(Please review the satellite view available below this description for more visual detail)There is beach access through the north and south sides of the ocean units. Both beach accesses take you on a boardwalk that protects the dunes and have outside freshwater showers to clean off after swimming.

The beach is wide, uncrowded and clean. It is owned and maintained by the State of Delaware and is an unprotected beach. Should you feel the need to be on a guarded beach, you can go south to the State park ¼ mile or north to Bethany about ½ mile.

As mentioned, our home is on the bay side of the community which also includes the location of the pool and pier. These 2 amenities have offered us another wonderful dimension to our time at the beach. The pool is situated at the edge of the bay. On the deck are several seating options including both chaise lounges an tables with umbrellas & chairs, perfect for lunch! There is also a restroom. Next to the pool is our community pier which extends into the bay and is a great place to fish and crab or just hang out! My kids spent hours out there.

There are 2 reserved/marked parking spaces which are located in front of the unit. The spaces are within 40 feet of the front steps.

House Details: Welcome home!

Our 3 story town home comfortably accommodates up to 8 including children.

When you enter our home, you can look straight through the sliding glass door to a beautiful, unobstructed Bayfront view.

Standing in the foyer, the stairs to the 2nd floor are on the right, through the hallway to the left is the Den which houses a Pottery Barn queen sleep sofa & small TV. There is also a powder room, and a closet with the washer/dryer/iron and ironing board and plenty of sand toys.

As you continue into the house, the kitchen is on the left and then the dining/living space.

The kitchen is fully equipped. There are enough plates & utensils for 12 and several serving pieces, etc. We keep a basic spice pantry for those that also like to cook.

The dining area includes a breakfast bar with stools and dining table which seats 6 comfortably. The living room has comfortable seating for 6 people, wireless internet and TV.

Off the sliding glass door from the living room is a nice sized screened porch with a ceiling fan, table and chairs(6), live box, crab net and some crab traps as well as an additional cooler for your use. Beyond the screened porch is a beautiful 1st floor deck with teak steamer chairs, gas grill and plenty of space to read the morning paper, enjoy the stunning waterfront views or celebrate sunset with family and friends alfresco. The first floor deck is a great space for coffee in the morning, iced tea in the afternoon and a tall, cool drink in the evening. It's also a perfect spot for star gazing if you don't want to walk across the street to the beach.

Second Floor: There are 2 en suite bedrooms on the 2nd floor. The Bayfront master has a beautiful view through the sliding glass door that leads to a private balcony overlooking the bay, a Queen sized bed, double sink vanity, Jacuzzi tub/shower, large closets and TV.

The front (ocean view) bedroom also has a Queen sized bed, TV, private bath with a shower stall and unobstructed views of the sunrise, the dunes and the ocean. There is a sitting area off the 2nd floor hall with a large picture window and game table. You can watch the sun rise over the ocean or use our binoculars to see the freighters in the ocean at night. If neither of those activities appeals to you, you can sit there and play a game of checkers or chess!

The 3rd Floor: “The Crow’s Nest” Decorated slightly whimsically, houses a trundle bed which can accommodate 2 singles or can be pushed together to create a queen bed. There is a small TV and full bath/shower with separate vanity.

The house is decorated in a casual, sophisticated style. The majority of the furnishings are Pottery Barn. There are ample pillows and blankets, bureaus and closets to accommodate 8 people. Linens/paper & consumables are not included.

When we visit the beach, the kids and my husband either go to the pier or the beach and I head to the grocery store. We prefer not to go out every night. We like to cook and enjoy entertaining at home. Often we will spend the day with friends, enjoying the beach, golfing or riding bikes, stop by the pool in the afternoon, and enjoy a relaxing evening with cocktails and dinner on the deck. The sunset makes a great backdrop!

If your idea of vacation is NOT to cook, there are several GREAT restaurants and pubs close to our house. We keep a visitors binder in the living room with information regarding restaurants, day trips, state parks, etc.

Location, Location, Location!!! The beauty about this part of the island is that it is quiet and peaceful yet very close to everything. Shopping in Rehoboth is ½ hour north of the house, if you would like to go on a fishing charter Indian River Inlet is 12 minutes north of the house or bring your kayak or canoe and put it in the bay ½ mile north at one of the state park bay beaches. Great golf is just a phone call away.

It’s nice to have the option to have quiet time or hop in your car and go for ice cream or mini golf. This part of Fenwick Island is a well kept secret that we are now sharing with you. If you are interested in more information or would like to rent our house, please contact us.

Thanks for your time!

About The Owner

We are the Brennan and Riley families and we love Fenwick Island!

Zoom in on the map to get a better view of our location. The sunsets are amazing!!!

The Owner purchased this townhome in 2002

Why The Owner chose Fenwick Island

We decided to purchase in Fenwick because it is approximately 3 hours from Baltimore/Northern VA(our homes) and an incredibly well kept secret in terms of solitude and beauty. King's Grant is a beautifully maintained, convenient, family friendly community with terrific beach and bay access. Our home is comfortable and provides the opportunity for easy livin' beach style.

What makes this townhome unique

Relaxation at it's finest. Watch the sun rising over the dunes in the front of the house and sunsets on either of our spacious water front decks. Beautiful surroundings, large sandy beaches, convenient location and very comfortable, easy accommodations.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Susan, I just wanted to leave you a little note saying how much our family enjoyed our week at your place. The townhouse was perfect, the weather was near-perfect, and we just thought the location of King's Grant is absolutely ideal. We had a great time. Lots of pool and beach time, went to Assateague Island, OC and Bethany boardwalks, Cape Henlopen, etc. All very convenient. I caught a number of small crabs off the community pier. It was convenient to have the live box and nets there. We left some kids beach toys as well as a couple of crab hand lines for other guests to use in the future. We really enjoyed our time in Fenwick Island!

Nice location but house needs work

  • 3 of 5

We decided to take a last minute vacation to Fenwick and this was the only unit available that met our needs.We have been visiting the area since I was a kid.

The pros:

1. The set up was great for

my parents, my in laws, my husband, myself and our two kids. There are 3 floors.The bottom floor has an open den (no door) with a pull out sofa and a half bath.This worked well for our 6 year old.The middle floor has two bedrooms. The master has a balcony, queen bed, and a full bath with a tub.The bedroom down the hall has a queen bed and bath.Upstairs, in the loft, there is a single day bed with a trundle that can be lifted to bed height to create a queen bed. There is also a full bath with a tub.

2. The sunset was incredible

3. The kitchen was well equipped

4. The screened in porch was great with nice cross breezes

5. The owner sent all the information ahead of time.She was quick to respond with anything we needed and tried her best to remedy issues

6. The access to the bay and the ocean without a long distance walk was nice and the pier and the pool as well

7. The beach was not crowded

The cons:

1. The house was dirty. Mold in the bathrooms, kitchen, and ceiling of the living room.My dad is allergic and got sick during the stay.The house wasn't cleaned well before we arrived (sand and hair in the bathrooms, lower level wasn't vacuumed, powder all over the vanity in the master, blood on throw pillows upstairs, crumbs and stains on the sofas, dirty tablecloth).This house needs a thorough cleaning!The owners were responsive and sent the cleaners back.They did not arrive when scheduled and ended up coming our third day. Didn't see much of a difference when they left

2. The shower size in the second floor bath. It's tiny. The bathrooms really need a rehab!

3. Walk to the beach was a bit dangerous with kids. Crossing Route 1 with a 55 mph speed limit was scary

4. Parking. We were given 2 passes (could not find the third).We would use a piece of paper to write the unit number/dates in the third car and place it on the dash then park in a spot that wasn't numbered as directed by the owner.We would still get a "citation" with a threat to tow every morning

5. The fridge water.Do not drink! Tasted horrible and made us feel sick

6. There is a random set of glass slider doors in the bedroom upstairs that lead to the hallway making it not very private

Overall, I can see the potential in this unit but I think it is priced too high for its condition

Owner's Response: Dear Becca, Thank you for choosing our home for your late summer trip. I appreciate your feedback. I'm glad there were some things that you enjoyed and hope you got some great family photos. Unfortunately, the house did not meet your standards, even after sending the cleaning crew back (on Monday) to take care of whatever you needed. I am sorry for that. Since you've been coming to this area since you were a kid, I'm disappointed that you found crossing Rt. 1 an issue for you. When our kids were much younger, we drove across and unloaded. We left the sand chairs and umbrella in the car the entire week! It was all about making things easy for our family. That might be an option for future vacations you take to the area. From mid-July, we had several electronic conversations, one of which was regarding your need for additional parking. I explained that I could not guarantee an additional parking space BUT gave you specific instructions for the location of an additional third parking tag, located in our home. When I arrived at our home the morning you left, the tag was exactly where I explained to you that it would be. My reason for suggesting you use a piece of paper on the dash was that I assumed you were already using the additional tag. Flyers are used by our management company to ensure ample parking is available for the use of our owners and guests. Thanks for the interior design editorials. I'm glad you see the potential in our home.

Family vacation

  • 4 of 5

Overall my family and I had a wonderful time. Fenwick Island is the perfect location. The beach is a short walk and was never crowed and was beautiful. We were close to shopping, resturants and attractions but away from the crowds. Great family place. The home was spacious and we never felt crowded. The kitchen and bathrooms could be updated. We were only given 2 parking passes and we could have used more. The owners were very responsive and made our stay stress free.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you enjoyed Fenwick Island. Your description of the beach, restaurants, shopping and attractions is so accurate. It is unfortunate that you did not communicate your need for an additional parking pass to us, as we would have tried to accommodate you and your family. We hope you were treated to great sunsets off the back of the house and took lots of family photos. Thanks for choosing our home for your Fenwick 2017 vacation! We hope you’ll consider our home for another vacation!

Beautiful home that is always well maintained. Best location on the eastern shore. My kidsl loved fishing off the back pier. Unbelievable sunsets every night. Beach is easy to get to and not at all crowded. Will definitely return in the future.

Great week!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better week in Fenwick Island. The house was clean, comfortable and perfectly located in a quiet community. We took advantage of the beach (which we almost had to ourselves), the community pool, and the nearness of the towns of Bethany Beach and Fenwick Island for kayaking, dinners, golf, boardwalking, ice cream,... Would definitely return for future vacations.

Car: recommended

Quiet community located on both the Little Assawoman Bay and Atlantic Ocean. Enjoy the solitude or head in to town for breakfast at Jimmies, lunch at Just Hooked or dinner at One Coastal. Farmer's Market Monday and Friday mornings. Enjoy early morning or early evening beach walks, kayaking or a bike ride. There is plenty to do or chose to do nothing!

We keep a Visitor binder at our house with plenty of ideas for day trips, restaurants, etc.
