Native east coasters, Benjamin and Nancy have two sons, a daughter-in-law and are freshly minted grandparents. They love kicking back at Fenwick Island with family and friends at the beach, at the local restaurants like Nantucket's for dinner or Dirty Harry's for breakfast. An avid cook, Ben whips up great meals for romantic evenings on the deck.

Benjamin Daniels purchased this house in 2013

Make A Shore Thing your vacation tradition in season and don't forget to sneak away during the off season especially during the holidays. Great for multiple families with children of all ages or vacationing with your friends.

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

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

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

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 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
  • Submitted: Jan 25, 2014
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
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

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!

Wonderful family vacation

We just go home from a wonderful stay at The Shore Thing. Leanne was wonderful to work with. Everything is well labeled and she gives very detailed instructions. The place held all 16 of us and their were many spaces to spread out. AdIn the evenings some would play games on the 2nd floor while the kids enjoyed a movie or pool on the 1st floor. We paddle boarded and kayaked off of the back deck in the mornings.
The kitchen was well stocked. We would eat out on the back deck with the 2 picnic tables which made for easy clean up. We had a fun seafood night on the deck.
There was lots to do very close to unit. We walked to dinner at Harpoon Hanna's one night and we would get ice cream at Kohr's or Dairy Queen each night. The kids enjoyed miniature golf 2 nights. We would drive to Fenwick State Park for the beach which was great because it had bathrooms and great fries!
Great family vacation...thank you Ken and Leanne for sharing your home with us.
