New for 2017!! Island Time is one of the largest oceanside retreats for rent on the Eastern shore of Delaware, Maryland, Virginia or New Jersey. A huge, professionally decorated, luxurious retreat with multiple family rooms that is located oceanside in the heart of Fenwick Island.

Check out our website at

Built in 2009 by Delaware's premier builder Zonko Builders, this enormous ocean-block retreat has 3 individual suites in one huge 6,300 square foot house.

This house is immaculately clean and very well maintained.

Each suite includes a gas fireplace, hardwood flooring, multiple porches & decks and the use of a brand new, private, 10 person, 900 gallon hot tub with 47 jets that is serviced weekly. Once you park your car, you can literally walk everywhere.

The top floor suite has 5 bedrooms, a huge great room with kitchen, a large screened in porch, sunroom, a rooftop deck with ocean views and sleeps 12 people. The two first floor suites each have three bedrooms, a great room and a kitchen, 2 full baths and sleep 8 people each. There is also a new pool table with ping pong top that is new for 2017. In addition, we have an elevator which can be used to transport luggage and groceries to the 1st and 2nd floor. Island Time has bright, open rooms with cheerful fun beach decor and plenty of places to hang out. There is also an outdoor shower and ground level/outdoor restroom which makes it easy if you have to go to the bathroom while on the beach without having to enter the house.

New for our guests to enjoy in 2017:

Three (3) brand new 60" Ultra HD 4K Smart TVs - You can log into Netflix, Amazon, etc.

We also have all movie channels and 100s of great movies stored for your group to enjoy

The Fenwick guarded beach is a two-minute walk from our house (without having to cross Coastal Highway). It is amazingly less crowded and quiet compared to the beaches in Ocean City, Bethany Beach and Rehoboth - typically Fenwick's beach has 70% less people than those beaches. It will remind you of your own private beach.

Located oceanside in the heart of Fenwick Island just a short stroll to the beach, restaurants, mini golf, go-carts and water slides. Perfect for multiple families traveling together, large family gatherings, reunions and corporate retreats. Island Time also has free lightning fast 150 Mbps wi-fi for our guests.

For the chefs, Island Time features 3 fully equipped kitchens with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and gas cooktops. Most places on the Eastern shore have electric cooktops. We also have a large electric griddle for making perfect pancakes for your group, a waffle iron for our guests to enjoy, a 6 quart crockpot and a brand new, large 6 burner gas grill outside.

Easy walking distance to Ropewalk Restaurant, Mancini's Brick Oven Pizza and Nantucket's to name a few. Also, our favorite Ocean City restaurant, Liquid Assets, is opening a new location in Fenwick Island this spring a few blocks from our place called Our Harvest!

In addition, Island Time is only 18 miles to the Tanger Outlets in Rehoboth Beach. The Tanger Outlets ( feature over 140 stores including Under Armour, Tommy Bahama, Lululemon, Nike & Banana Republic as well as tax-free Delaware shopping to make a great deal even better. It's a fun way to spend a day if the weather isn't cooperating. There is also the Sun & Surf Cinema in Ocean City which features 8 theaters just a 1 mile drive (or walk) from our place.

Bedding is as follows: 3 kings, 4 queens, 4 twins and 4 sets of built-in twin bunks. EZ Beach rentals will deliver linens to our place for your stay. Just go to

Two companies in the Fenwick area, Delmarva Sport Adventures and Coastal Kayak, offer Eco kayak tours as well as lessons to surf the waves in a kayak.

A 20 minute ride from our home takes you to Rehoboth Beach. The town is much larger than Bethany and Fenwick and boasts many shopping and dining options, a three mile boardwalk and an amusement park. There are also fabulous sales tax-free outlet shopping at 140 Outlet stores.

In minutes you can get to Ocean City with a long boardwalk with a large amusement park (including a fun roller coaster) and many more restaurants, bars and shops.

A 10 minute ride takes you to the Freeman stage for top talent entertainment. A walk across the street takes you to the DiscoverSea Shipwreck Museum which houses artifacts from sunken ships in the area. If you are lucky, they will bring out a 50 pound gold "necklace" found in a sunken Spanish ship.

You can also visit Lewes, smaller than Rehoboth but very quaint.

Lastly, Jolly Roger Amusement park on 30th Street (7 miles from our place) in Ocean City has a huge water park with tons of water slides, wave pools and even a water roller coaster that kids will love.

You can take a fishing charter out at the Indian River marina for a half or full day. And a 5-minute ride takes you across the bay where you can rent a boat or jet skis.

Some are Bayside, Baywood Greens, Bear Trap Dunes, Lighthouse Sound, Rum Pointe, War Admiral & Man O'War at GlenRiddle, Cripple Creek Golf, CC Dagsboro, Kings Creek, Old Landing Golf Course Rehoboth Beach and Rehoboth CC.

About Michelle Stack

We grew up going to the Eastern shore for family vacations and have always loved the beach. We are very accessible, easy to work with and will do everything we can to make sure your vacation is a special one. We will send you a large information package with many, many things to do in and around Fenwick Island as well as some of our favorite places to dine and must do activities.

Michelle Stack purchased this house in 2016

Why Michelle Stack chose Fenwick Island

We recently purchased Island Time because there are so few 10+ bedroom places for rent on the Eastern Shore especially ones that are oceanside. Most of the larger rental homes are located inland a few miles from the beach so you must drive to get to the beach. Why drive to the beach when you can walk?

We love this house because it is a well built, nicely maintained, clean house that is just a short stroll to a beautiful private beach. Once you park your car you can literally walk everywhere. It's an ideal home for family reunions, multiple families traveling together and corporate retreats. As nice as the place is in the pictures, it will be even nicer when you arrive as we are going to make many improvements and additions (see below).

What makes this house unique

There are so many unique benefits to this home including an elevator, a large hot tub that is serviced weekly for your stay, fully equipped large kitchen with gas cooktops & a large electric griddle as well as a waffle maker, pool table with ping pong top, countertop video game that plays over 100 games including our favorite "Find The Difference" between 2 photos, 6 bikes for your group to use during your stay, ring and hook game, parking for at least 12 vehicles (very rare for the beach), three brand new 60" flat screen TVs, the ability for your group to all gather in the huge open living area (23' x 34') or to have more privacy at the end of the night by retreating to one of the first family rooms, a screened-in porch, a sunroom, over 6,300 square feet of living space, 11 bedrooms, 7 1/2 baths, high quality furnishings, new beachy paint & decorations coming for 2017 and 4 decks. All within easy walking distance to the beach, shops and great restaurants.

The perfect house for a large family gathering

  • 5 of 5

My extended family has rented houses in the Bethany/Fenwick area over the holiday break for more than ten years--this house was the best! We especially enjoyed the great room that allows some people to be on the sofa visiting or watching tv, others at the large table snacking or playing games, and others in the kitchen preparing meals for our family of 18 -- yet all together! Since we have a large group and prefer to cook dinner each night, having three full kitchens in the house was so helpful. My 16-month old grandson used a room tucked away in one of the suites (equipped with a pack n play) that allowed him to nap away from any noise. The evevator was key for my 80-year old parents. The house is clean and beautifully furnished--paint colors are spectacular! Plenty of things to do nearby, even in December. Michelle and Mike were 100 percent responsive and obviously care about guests enjoying their stay. You won't go wrong with this rental.

Wonderful property meets all expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Michael and Michelle were very attentive, available and gracious. They were a pleasure to work with and we had not one problem in that respect. The property was exactly as described (beautiful, clean, well equipped, wonderful location, spacious) and actually exceeded any expectations I had formed prior to our arrival. The large common area was a great place for us all to assemble in the evening, whether we were involved in cooking, playing games, watching the Olympics, or just relaxing. The bedrooms are roomy and quiet and our guests who wanted to sleep late were not in the least disturbed by what was happening in the common area. We had small children with us also, so the parents were able to remove them from the commotion. We were visiting over a long weekend in February for a family/friend celebration and we did all of our own cooking. There are 3 fully equipped kitchens which allowed us to use multiple ovens for large meal preparations. This also allowed for adequate storage of all drinks as well as our food (3 full refrigerators). I think our biggest problem was trying to make sure all of the pots, pans, and dishes found their way back into the correct kitchen! We were very close to the beach (it was very quiet this time of year and a lovely place to walk!) and several people enjoyed the immense hot tub. I would highly recommend this property to anyone.

Family Get Away

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family get away. Close to the beach, attractions, shopping, restaurants... etc., but you never had to leave the house if you didn't want to. Everything you could possibly need was right there, great view, fireplace, balconies, screened in porches, roof top deck and even a hot tub. Our three night stay went by too fast and we hope to come back soon for a whole week. This is great place to stay for a large family or group of friends to stay together and not feel crowded. So much room to be together but also have your own space as well .

Amazing time!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great - we had such an amazing time. The elevator, which was important to one of our guests, worked beautifully. A short walk to the beach meant we saw the sunrise every morning. Thank you for such an amazing stay!

A beautiful and restful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home is exactly as described on the listing. It is beautifully decorated and has everything you could want in a vacation home. The three separate living quarters were great for privacy yet doors can be left open to make everyone feel included. It was a bonus that all 11 of us had our own bedroom!

We had excellent weather and spent a lot of time on the screened in porch which was delightful!

The owners could not have been more helpful and easy to work with. They answered every email within ten minutes. They are very accommodating and really want their guests to have a great experience. The information they provide before you arrive is very thorough and helps make your experience so enjoyable.

The location of the home is near lots of restaurants, amusements, and entertainment. We literally ate our way through the shore!

This is the perfect home for large groups and I would recommend it to anyone!
