This home is waterfront and has a boat ramp and dock for your boat (some guests have rented a boat nearby), jet skis or kayak. The canal has direct access to the large Assawoman Bay. Or just drop a crab line off the dock.

This house features a first floor game room occupying the entire level. Game room has a wet bar (microwave and fridge), pool table, foosball, DVD player for 'movie night,' X-box on 55 inch surround-sound TV, gas fireplace, and a half bath. Just outside the door is a private hot tub. (Because people have asked, the hot tub is professionally drained, cleaned and service in between every rental).

The 2nd floor features an open floor plan with a gourmet kitchen. Kitchen is connected to large living room and deck. In-ceiling speakers and iPod dock make this floor perfect for entertaining. Gas fireplace. Separate den for some quiet time or to catch up on work. Half bath. Outside on this level we have a gas grill and 2 large picnic tables for 'crab night.'

Free wifi Internet access. 32 inch flat panel TV in every bedroom. Outdoor shower. Parking for 5 cars.

This house is very competitively priced given its size, features, and proximity to the beach. All taxes, cleaning service, hot tub service and other 'fees' are included in the price.

This house is perfect for family get-togethers, multi-family vacations, golf or crafting trips. We are walking distance from great food (Catch 54), nightlife (Harpoon Hannas), watersports, and miniature golf, go carts, water park -- and more.

We call this house A Shore Thing because it is a sure thing!

What makes this house unique

We love the house, the location but sitting on the top deck looking down the canal into the bay at night is spectacular.

Miss it already - Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
We had such a great weekend and can't wait to come back! "A Shore Thing" fit our group of 5 families, 3 of them with young kids, very well. We were all very comfortable and immediately felt at home in this wonderful vacation property. It is portrayed perfectly in the photos, is very clean and professionally (tastefully) decorated without being cluttered. The kitchen is fully stocked with utensils for cooking, grilling, blending drinks, and entertaining. My husband and I were in the 'Starfish Room', and it was incredibly comfortable. I wish I could take the bed home with us. Sleeping in each morning was amazing, even in a house with toddlers running around early in the morning.

I can tell a lot of care was put in to decorating and making it comfortable. I appreciate that there is a ceiling fan just about everywhere one can be, and all of the switch labels are conveniently labeled. We plugged ipods/ smartphones into the house sound system that played music out the ceiling speakers on the main level, also enjoying movie nights and game nights at "home".

We found the location to be great, just outside of the Ocean City chaos in a nice quite neighborhood. We walked (almost every day) to Harpoon Hannah's, which offered both fun day-time meals for the family with live music, and also a late-night bar scene with DJ, boats pulling up to the dock, and dancing on the lit up dock! A lot of fun, and so close. There is another bar/restaurant even closer just across the main road, but I forget the name as we didn't make it there once we got stuck on Harpoon Hannah's. Also close were the Crabcake Factory where we had an excellent bloody mary brunch on the water, and we also walked the just-under-a-mile walk to the beach each day, which made more sense than trying to find parking during high-season. And let's be honest, we could all use the walk with all of the food and beverages we were enjoying!

Thank you, Ben, for such a great experience. We will look to you again when we have a chance to make it back to the Eastern Shore!

Great House, Great Location, Great Stay, Coming Back Again!

  • 5 of 5
Just got back from a 'girls' vacation with family and friends! We loved the location and beautiful views of Assawoman Bay. The house is beautifully decorated and has a great layout....lots of spaces for large and small gatherings throughout. I was surprised at how many restaurants and shops were open as well as the quality of the food. We walked to Harpoon Hannahs (perfect fried clams) and Catch 54 (great seafood/crab cakes and service!) for dinners and hit the Outlets in Rehobeth. We're fitness buffs so we also enjoyed runs on the beach. There are ample shoulders along Coastal Highway for bike riders. Ben is super nice and checked in with us to be sure everything was to our liking. We'll be back in the spring!!

Excellent Vacation House

  • 5 of 5
This was an incredible home, fully worth the value. Ben and Nancy do an excellent job keeping the house in order and I was surprised at how close we were to all of the sights in Ocean City. There was tons of room and everything seemed to be in working order. I could see some expected wear and tear of the pool table mentioned in the below review but that didn't detract from the experience. Ben and Nancy also took the advice about the beds to heart and added a memory foam pad to all of them...so comfy!

Overall I had a great time and I'll definitely be back again. Thanks again Ben and Nancy for opening your home to us!

Great House - Disappointing Stay

  • 2 of 5
In looking for a house for our 2014 college reunion week, I came across A Shore Thing and read the review posted by someone who rented the property after us. First, I have to agree with everything in that review. I was disappointed to find that after we sent the owner a fairly detailed EMail recommending improvements and repairs that none were completed. One thing that really bothered me was that the house just wasn't clean. I'm not a shoe person; I take every opportunity I can to go barefoot, particularly when I'm indoors. In this house, the bottom of my feet were black every night. The house is billed as a great space and it truly is. It's also a great location. We've rented several houses over the years in Bethany, Rehobeth, the Outer Banks and even Las Vegas and this may have been the best space for the group we had, but it was also the most disappointing from a cleanliness perspective. While I won't rule it out as a potential future rental, we'll need a detailed discussion with the owner and some pretty specific guarantees before we commit.

Owner's Response: Gary as you know I had just purchased the property and hadn't had an opportunity to stay there, and thank you for the heads up. but everything on your list has been addressed ,new mattress pads on all the beds ,headboard secured to frames, water damage repaired, sharpened knives, light bulbs replaced the only thing I have not done is the faucet (ordered part). there is also a new pinball machine. My flaw was the time frame that I had to address these issues. When I asked about the cleanings the owner of the cleaning service assured me that his effort to satisfy me and the renters was priority. Just wanted you to know that do my best to do what is proper . and the review gives the impression otherwise. I would welcome another visit but can understand your reluctance.

Wish I could give it 5 stars

  • 3 of 5
This house has many positives that I want to mention first. The home is decorated nicely and uncluttered. The location is great (just outside the hustle and bustle of OC).The layout of the home is also good. Plenty of living space to spread out. Being on the canal was relaxing. Sunsets were beautiful over the water. It's a shame that I have to give it 3 stars. The home is under new ownership however some of the negatives were inherited from the previous owner. Many things in the home are in need of repair/replacement. The hot tub is need of repair to fix broken diverter valves, adjustable jets and a leak underneath. Also, the jetted tub in the master had the knobs to adjust the jets removed, and the holes were filled with foam insulation. The grill needs a major overhaul. The grates were rusted, and it was covered in grease. It also needs a light installed above. It was nearly impossible to cook food properly after dark. The pool table is in bad shape with worn felt and torn pockets. Some of the deck furniture needs replaced. The zero gravity chairs were useless as they wouldn't even open properly. Another note: this home doesn't have any beach equipment. No floats, chairs, umbrellas,... The biggest complaint from everyone in my group was that the beds are horrible. The mattresses are hard, and the foundations make a ton of noise. The king on the third floor is new, but the rest need to be replaced. As for the new owner... I'm assuming he's new to renting a home, so I will give him that. However, when the first line of my welcome letter stated "You can expect a clean and well-maintained property.", that is what I expected to find. Unfortunately that wasn't the case. We had to clean all 7 bathrooms upon arrival. It was obvious that they hadn't been cleaned since previous use. The floors, vents and fans were dirty. There were spills on some of the walls, sand on the pool table and several light bulbs burnt out. I had to purchase cleaning supplies and spent a day cleaning. I also replaced light bulbs that were for lighting on decks and in the rec room. I tried to contact the owner twice with no response. After returning home, I finally got in touch with him. He said he didn't respond because he didn't understand why I thought the house wasn't clean. I was very specific in my e-mails. He apologized and said he would refund me half the cleaning fee with my deposit. I appreciate the refund, but unfortunately I won't be returning to "A Shore Thing" sorry to say.

Owner's Response: I just returned from visiting A Shore Thing with our cleaning crew and maintenance folks. The place is spotless and the light in the fan and one in the family room were replaced. Good idea on adding a light over the grill and getting some beach chairs...we're looking into those.

Once the crew left (after rewarding them with steamed crabs for their hard work) we went on to have an awesome weekend! Great meals prepared in the spacious well equipt kitchen, romantic evenings on the deck enjoying spectacular sunsets over the Assawoman Bay. We had movie night and played pool and foosball in the spacious Game Room with friends, lunch at Harpoon Hannahs and brunch at the house after a run on the beach.

We welcome future guests to experience all that A Shore Thing and Fenwick Island have to offer!

Cheers!

Ben
