Why Jane chose Keenwick Sound

We bought this property because we wanted a waterfront home, where we could keep a boat and enjoy the natural beauty of the Delmarva Peninsula. We also wanted to be close to the Delaware and Ocean City beaches, where we meet up with family and friends on a regular basis. Our place is the perfect getaway from all of the hustle and bustle of our stressful work gives us just a little bit of heaven on earth!

What makes this house unique

We enjoy biking, crabbing, boating, kayaking, swimming at the community pool, and golf at Bayside Resort Golf Club. This outstanding course was designed by Jack Niklaus and is located right next to our community!

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great vacation in Fenwick Island. We had 3 generations of family, my wife and I, daughter and son-in-law and their four children everyone had a fantastic time. The house is right on a lagoon and the grandchildren had countless hours of fun seeing what they could catch in the lagoon. The rear deck overlooking the lagoon allowed us adults to keep a close eye on them while relaxing, socializing and enjoying the weather. The screened porch was convenient for family dinners and gatherings. The kitchen was well stocked with everything needed to cook a meal when we decided to dine in and the grill in the backyard made it really easy to cook up some hotdogs for the kids. The house was more than ample in size to allow everybody a little personal space when they wanted and nobody felt cramped or like they were falling over each other. We even had my family who are still in the local area stop by to visit without ever having anywhere near a shortage of space.

I am originally from the Ocean City, MD area and what makes this house extra special is that it's located in a quiet well kept neighborhood. You are close enough that you can be right in the middle of the hub bub, crowds and traffic that is summer in Ocean City within minutes, but can retreat back to the quiet serenity this property provides in no time at all. There is a grocery store close so picking up anything you need or have forgotten is extremely easy without fighting traffic or crowds. The beaches of Fenwick Island state park are only a five minute drive away. This house is absolutely perfect for those who want to do the beach their way whether it be nightlife, the beach, family activities or access to good restaurants. With Bethany, Fenwick and Ocean City only a short drive away you get the best all three towns have to offer.

The owner was wonderful to deal with, questions before booking were promptly responded to and the booking process was remarkably easy. We will definitely return to this property next time we go home to visit family.

Beautiful, well cared for home

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home with room for large numbers without feeling cramped. Our family had a wonderful week. The owners were immediately available to answer any questions. It was such a relief to rent from owners who take pride in their home. We loved the outdoor space and the quiet neighborhood. The kitchen was extremely well stocked and large enough for several cooks at one time. We look forward to returning.
