Description of the Area and Activities FOR 6 King Street, Fenwick Island DE

The guarded beach is 30 yards away from the King House and there is off street parking for 6 cars. There is also access to a large state park beach right up the road with plenty of parking. The park has life guard, showers, rest rooms, snack bar, and umbrella rentals and the beach was replenished in the Fall of 2005 so it is very wide.

Fenwick Island's beach is guarded, quiet and not at all crowded as you need to have a resident pass to park which restricts the number of beach goers.

The King House has been designed for large families and is perfect for small reunions, group celebrations, and quiet retreats. You could lease this house for a weekend, week or a month, and enjoy every minute of the comfortable and beautiful surroundings provided in the furnishings, appointments and neighborhood.

Things To Do In The Area

The town of Fenwick Island– Called the Quiet Resort - spans about 14 blocks and the restaurants, stores and activities are an easy walk from the house. The town hall has a good playground for children, a basketball half court, and a shuffle board court and a picnic area. A few of our favorite restaurants include Nantucket’s and House of Welsh .

You can take a short walk to the pristine beach for swimming and surf fishing, wander for miles in the adjacent DE Seashore Park. There are numerous golf courses, bike paths, three boardwalks, and superb dining in 2 states.

Ocean and bay watersports - charter boat fishing, wind surfing. Local watersports: swimming, crabbing, clamming, boating, kayaking, jet skiing, sailing, sport fishing, beachcombing, surfing, shelling, windsurfing.

Day Trip about a half hour from Fenwick: Rehoboth Beach: The town is much larger than Fenwick or Bethabny and boasts many shopping and dining options. You can also go antiquing. There is also fabulous sales tax free outlet shopping at 140 Outlet stores. Fenwick Island to Lewes DE is less than a half hour's drive; the town is historic and quaint with many great shops and restaurants. Or hop on the Lewes-Cape May ferry for a comfortable ride to beautiful Cape May NJ.

About Susan Mongar

We built this home ourselves after many years of extended family beach rentals, and we included everything that we had learned over the years we wanted. Our wish is that your group, be it family or friends, will enjoy 6 King Street and Fenwick Island as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

While you are in Fenwick, one of Delaware's 'quiet resorts,' you are only 2 miles north of Ocean City, MD, a booming resort town with a huge boardwalk and many, many amusements.

Wonderful Wonderful Wonderful!

The house was just perfect for our family reunion....there was plenty of space for everyone to be in the same part of the house and nice cozy places to have quiet time too. Our family was able to enjoy the November! I would definitely be back!

6 King Street EXCEEDS expectations

  • 5 of 5

6 King Street was the PERFECT setting for a 4-generation family reunion with 11 people and 2 dogs. The configuration of bedrooms and baths aligned perfectly with our family's needs and preferences. The kitchen was spacious and well-equipped for preparing and serving meals for 11. The top-floor living area was large, bright, and airy, perfect for evening family gatherings. The overall condition of the house was impeccable: clean and fresh. The proximity to the beach and the private swimming pool allowed everyone to easily do as they wished during the day. Bunting Avenue was animated but safe for walking dogs and toddlers. Fenwick Island advertises itself as the quiet family vacation town along the Delmarva Peninsula, and the condition of 6 King Street is immaculate, so groups inclined to rowdy late-night parties should look to the towns further south or north.

Awesome house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family group of 16 spent a long weekend in this house and we can't say enough good things about it. The rooms were spacious with very comfy beds, the kitchen was fully equipped with everything we could possibly need and we enjoyed quality family time watching the NBA playoffs in the great room. The house is mere steps from the beach and we enjoyed hanging out with our toes in the sand watching the dolphins swim by. Yes, Dolphins! The house has 2 outdoor showers perfect for rinsing the sand off before going back into the house. In the surrounding areas, there are supermarkets, shopping centers, and a number of places to get some good seafood which we enjoyed on the deck. The best part about the house is that it's so spacious we never felt cramped and always had the option of alone/ quiet time. We will definitely be returning to Fenwick and I would happily give these owners my business again as they were very attentive and accommodating.

Great house for a family event!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience at this beautiful ocean side home. We hosted a party for the night before our daughter's wedding in Rehoboth. The well equipped kitchen and spacious great room and deck were perfect. The location,being just steps from the ocean, and having a house with a pool in Fenwick will have us considering this rental again!!!!!

Fits the Description!

  • 5 of 5

We were not disappointed - this house is just like the description and photos. We had a lovely weekend in a lovely home! We found everything we needed, and we enjoyed being so close to the ocean. We especially loved having views of the sunrise on the ocean and the sunset on the bay! The kids loved the pool, too. An excellent family retreat, with lots of room for our extended family.

King Street is Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We just booked our 2015 July week: our 4th stay here in 8 years! We've tried different homes, but we keep coming back to King Street because it has everything we want. Lots of space, a pool, a great kitchen, and we are so close to a never-crowded beach. The house is always clean, and the owners treat us well. It's a winner!
