Oceanside Fenwick Island - Great Beach House For Families
average rating of 5.0 based on 7 reviews

Great house in perfect condition. Steps from the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We are a large family and there is room to spare in this house. The house is beautiful and conducive for cooking, dining, and relaxing together with spacious indoor and outdoor living areas. Also conducive to getting some quiet time in your own room. Very short walk to not crowded (understatement) beach. I love how quiet and laid back this area is. This was our second time for Tingles' Timeout, and we would definitely come back. The owner is nearby and responsive, although we have never needed anything once we've arrived.

Great for multiple generations of family members

  • 5 of 5

Stayed June, 2016

We loved staying in this house. We had a family reunion with three generations of relatives and it was wonderful. There was enough room for all and more than enough to do so close to the beach. Even though the house is on a main thoroughfare, when you're upstairs in the living area, you can't hear a thing. The home is very sound proof. There were some small issues and a call to the owners brought instant results. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat. The beach is a quick walk out the back door, through a gate, and down a road to the beach. If you have small children you don't have to worry about traffic. And with an outside shower, rinsing off sand before you go inside is super easy. The home is big enough and comfortable enough for a long stay.

Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

I love getting away from the crowds while on vacay, especially on the beach. North Fenwick is the place! The beach is just beautiful and the house is excellent. I brought my kids and grandkids (7 adults, 3 kids) and we had plenty of room. Very spacious and comfortable with plenty of indoor and outdoor living spaces. We loved the backyard for barbequeing and cracking some hard shells while the kids played on the swing set. Also a great place to stargaze at night. We used the bay-facing deck a lot, too. Room for everyone and comfortable, with a pretty view. I had a great time with my family both down on the beach and up at the house. I would use this property again in a heartbeat!

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect vacation home for our family! There was plenty of space, everyone had their own room, and the common areas were more than accommodating for dinners and game nights. It is ideal for multigenerational family vacations and for families with young children. The house is in a perfect location - a very short walk to the beach, close to all of Fenwick's eating and shopping. We enjoyed cocktail hour on the deck every night before dinner and a walk on Bunting to ice cream after.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect size for our family vacation. Everyone had their own bedroom which was a plus. We loved the short walk to the beach. It was great spending time in the backyard; our grandson especially loved the swings and climbing wall. We enjoyed good times around the dining room table, hanging out in the sunrooms, beautiful sunsets and bay views. We would highly recommend this vacation house and would stay there again.
