We've lots of activity all around us. We go to the action when we want, and leave it behind when we're done. No wild parties outside our door when we want quiet. Yes, we have a great place here and I know you'll love it as well.
A new job brought us to Delaware in 1997 and we quickly found the beaches after that. Dennis is originally from California and says that the "locals" are much more 'laid back' than the people in California. In no time at all we fell in love with the beaches, the people, and the relaxed lifestyle down here.
Originally this property held a 10x50 trailer that leaked all the time. We decided it was time to upgrade and built the house. We did all the finish work ourselves and have been steadily adding little touches here and there. Fenwick Island is in a great location. It's just inside "Tax Free" Delaware and just across the street from Ocean City, Maryland. Easy access to the outlet stores to the north and the famous Ocean City boardwalk to the south.
The house is open and airy, the decks are warm and comfortable. The Fenwick Lighthouse is just across the street and is a wonderful sight as you sit on the deck and enjoy your morning coffee and evening beverage. A very short walk to the beach and on the corner there are two mini-golfs, go-carts, Ice Cream, Popcorn and much more.
