My wife and I currently live in Newark, Delaware. I am a Delaware native and she is a long-time transplant from Louisiana. I have been coming to Delaware beaches since I was in high school. My children have grown up on these beaches and continue to enjoy them as adults.

John & Dianne Flora purchased this townhome in 2004

My wife treasures our townhome, but has developed a deep love of the ocean, especially the Fenwick Island beach and its natural beauty. Our dream was to have our own place at the beach to enjoy. So now we do. And we want to share that enjoyment with you!

Vacationing at the Fenwick Island beach for many years is what brought us to discover our Lighthouse View townhome. The first time we saw the unit as it was being built, it made us feel so relaxed that we wanted to stay and indefinitely enjoy the serenity of that unbelievable view.

And that's the story of how we came to call it 'Our Happy Place!'

Amazing property!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
If you're looking for the perfect place this would be the one! Not only are the views spectacular but this place is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. The pool is a very short walk away and very seldom crowded. You can walk to the beach and then there is high stakes bar and grille right around the corner. Walgreens is right next door so if you forget anything you can walk to get it. The owners Dianne and John go out of there way to make your stay and vacation a memorable one! We plan on going back next year and our grandson's first vacation here was more than we could ever have expected....plenty of room for him to roam around, the pictures don't do this place justice. I would HIGHLY recommend this place!!!! I'm a realtor....I know a great place when I see it :-)

Beautiful house, convenient location

  • 5 of 5
The house was very comfortable, clean and attractive. Wonderful views from the balconies- what a treat to start the day with coffee overlooking the bay! Dianne and John were friendly and helpful and thought of everything you could need in a rental. The location was very convenient to the beach, restaurants and shopping. We had an excellent dinner at Catch 54, which you can see from the house. Overall we had a great time at Fenwick Island and the house played a large part in our experience!

Fantastic time, fantastic place, fantastic people.

  • 5 of 5
This was a first for our family. I was very nervous as a first time renter, on the first beach vacation with my wife and infant son. I wanted everything to be perfect, as I spend quite a bit of time away from my family for work and want to maximize the time I do have with them.
I was so pleasantly surprised by how great Dianne and John were. They took their time in answering all of my questions and making sure all of my needs we're taken care of. From parking passes to grocery stores, age appropriate attractions to restaurants, we were provided with fantastic suggestions.
The property looked great in the pictures on the web site and we were surprised to find that it was even better in person. Very clean and spacious, wonderful views, easy walk to everything we wanted to see or do. The community pool provided a convenient place for my son to play after his nap. The garage was full of every type of beach toy a two year old and his child at heart father could want.
The grill provided many of our evening meals as well as a means to meet the very friendly neighbors, many of whom were the owners of the homes. The kitchen was so well stocked with extras that we felt as if we were cooking at home.
My family is looking forward to making this our happy place for years to come.

Better than we expected!

  • 5 of 5
We thought the place looked nice from the photos online but we were pleasantly surprised how spacious the house was. Bedrooms are all nice especially the master. Views are terrific and so relaxing. We could have walked but ended up driving to beach and there was plenty of parking during the week right down the street. Restaurants galore nearby - great food within a few blocks. Pool is a little small but very nice and was never crowded. Bottom line: this place is a good value for the money for sure.

Gorgeous views, great open spaces, extremely clean

  • 5 of 5
Very clean, homeowners actually care for their own property and are very friendly and helpful. Gorgeous bay views, easy location to food and fun. Easy walk to beach. Gated community for piece of mind. Nice pool with views as well. Harpoon Hannah's across the street was delicious and fun. Walgreens right at entrance was convenient to meet random needs quickly. Fishers popcorn and kohrs ice cream both delicious. Fenwick crab house another must! Just minutes to ocean city md minus the overcrowding. Friendly neighbors that appear to live there year round. Entire house furnished including laundry facilities and cooking utensils. Add on a new grill! Also a lot of watersports available for rent right across the street. Whether you want the low key beach bum vacation or the constant action, this is the place. Great location for two families with small children and also two bachelors that came along. Truly something for everyone! Did I mention the bay views?

The Fenwick Island Lighthouse has long been an important landmark along the Delaware coast since it was first lit in 1859. Check their website for visitors hours. It's a 'must-see.' Fenwick Island features sprawling sandy beaches on the ocean and the Little Assawoman Bay, offering watersports enthusiasts the chance to explore nature by boating, sailing, jet skiing, parasailing, kayaking or even paddle boarding! Nearby you will find Shark's Cove Marina which is across the Bay from our townhome, Action Watercraft Rentals by Harpoon Hannah's and Coastal Kayak on Coastal Highway/DE 1.

There is a live outdoor Theater, Freeman Stage, for concerts, musicals and plays.

A 'must-do' is Thunder Lagoon Water Park which has a diverse offering of water sports, including The Lazy River and Viking Ship rides. Viking Golf Amusements offers mini-golf courses and go carts. Stroll the Popcorn Co. Boardwalk for a variety of classic beach treats. Across the street, you'll adore Kohr Brothers Frozen Custard and the renowned Fisher's Popcorn - both 'must places.' And spend time on the boardwalks of Bethany Beach and Ocean City, Maryland, and go shopping at the Rehoboth Beach outlets. Our beautiful beach towns offer all of the 'Good Times' you could want!
