HOME WITH PRIVATE POOL AND HOT TUB

The Best -

We believe that our Sunset Home is one of the best beach vacation rental homes in Fenwick island. Our architect designed and we built the home in 2006 to comfortably accommodate families and this beach home has the amenities, beds, showers, furniture, kitchen and open space to provide the essentials that a large number of guests need to have for a memorable vacation.

Capture the Best of Both the Ocean and the Bay,

in this magnificently appointed Fenwick Island, Delaware, luxury, beach vacation rental home. Watch sunsets from this luxurious, bay front, Fenwick Island beach vacation rental home, only an 8 minute walk to the ocean! The Sunset beach home was designed to support large groups - the kitchen/dining and living area was designed for large gatherings and to maximize the awesome water views and create many conversation spots. We have a private dock to launch our 3 kayaks, canoe and 4 paddle boards.

The Quiet, UN-Crowded Beach of Fenwick Island-

The Fenwick beach is amazingly less crowded and quiet compared to the beaches in Ocean City and Bethany Beach. Typically Fenwick's beach has up to 70% less people on it compared to Bethany and Ocean City. (See how UN-crowded Fenwick's beach is in comparison to Bethany's in the contrasting photos on this site, taken on the same day and time, July 4, 2015). Fenwick is called the Quiet Resort.

Your Group Will Surely Have Fun When They Stay in this Rental Home-

The Sunset home has a private pool and hot tub overlooking the bay. You can swim all day in the ocean and return to the heated pool (extra fee for heat) for a dip before dinner. You will be equipped for adventure travel with 4 paddle boards (arrives for the 2016 season), 6 bikes, 3 kayaks (one a double), and 1 canoe. You can launch the paddle boards, canoe and kayaks from our private dock, from which you can also catch crabs and skip rocks across the water. Additionally, the home has a 44 in plasma TV, 4 additional TVs/DVD players and WIFI. Within easy walking distance are many restaurants (one a James Beard award winner), coffee shops, clothing and book shops, 3 mini golf courses, water slide and a go cart track.

Use our bikes to explore the "island" and/or to go to Kohr's for a delicious custard cone, pick up the morning paper, bagels and/or donuts, or just enjoy being mobile. Go to our Resort Pointe site blog for our reviews of restaurants and recommended attractions and specials.

The town hall (3 blocks away) has a almost brand new playground for children, a basketball half-court, and a shuffle board court and a picnic area. There are two local kayak touring companies that specialize in surf and Eco adventures. Plus, an large amusement park is just a few miles away as well as two boardwalks, and the Freeman Stage entertainment venue (also reviewed in our resort pointe blog). And for the off season, we have a see-through gas fireplace, cozy sofa blankets and tear-jerking old DVD movies.

Accommodating Your Large Group-

The Sunset house comfortably sleeps more than one family with 3 king, master suites; 1 contains a soaking tub & a large walk-in shower with 2 shower heads. Another bedroom includes two queens; 1 bedroom has 2 sets of bunks; the den offers 1 queen bed; and the living room has a sleeper-sofa. Adjacent to the pool, the den also features a wet bar.

Designed for large groups, the Chef's Kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals for large groups. It has 2 sinks and 2 refrigerators, another refrigerator downstairs, and on the deck are 2 BBQ s. You can eat in the dining room, the kitchen bar, and/or, the front deck with a panoramic view of the water. To support your evening al fresco dinner party on the deck, we have plenty of seating and will "order you up" a spectacular sunset.

In the photo library on this site we have posted floor plans that show the locations and bed sizes.

There is off-street parking for 6 cars at the home. And we supply parking passes for parking at the beach dunes.

Going to the Beach and Other Details-

The Fenwick guarded beach is about an 8 minute walk from the house. To transport your beach "stuff" to the beach we supply 2 Wonder Wheel Beach Caddies. In case you have more beach "stuff" than you can carry, we provide 2 all-day dune permits allowing you carry your things in your car and park it in the dune parking lot, 40 feet from beach. The Fenwick beach was replenished in the Fall of 2014 so they are extremely wide unlike Bethany's beach.

More Fun -

Two companies in the Fenwick area, Delmarva Sport Adventures and Coastal Kayak, offer Eco kayak tours by as well as lessons to surf the waves in a kayak. There are great walking trails and our favorite in Bethany is the Prickly Pear walk off of Fred Hudson Rd in Bethany.

The Fun Corner in Fenwick, a ten minute walk, on the intersection of Rt. 1 and Rt. 54, has many fun activities and food for adults and kids. The Discovery Sea Museum in Fenwick, a 5 minute walk from the home, has recovered treasure and artifacts from ship wrecks. You can take a short walk on the pristine beach for swimming and surf fishing, and wander for miles in the adjacent DE Seashore Park. Plus, there are bike paths, three boardwalks, and superb dining in 2 states. Water sports available are crabbing, clamming, boating, kayaking, jet skiing, sailing, sport fishing, beach combing, surfing, shelling, windsurfing. There is a boat rental shop right across from bay from the home. Enjoy the tennis courts at 141st Street in Ocean City. Keep in shape while on vacation – work out at the two gyms that are within a 10 minute car ride. And, there are nature trails, bird sanctuaries and the Seaside Nature Center can all be found at Cape Henlopen State Park just outside of Lewes.

You can take a Day Trip from Fenwick to Rehoboth Beach, about a half hour drive: The town is much larger than Fenwick or Bethany and has many shopping and dining options. You can also go antiquing. There is also a fabulous sales tax free outlet shopping at 140 Outlet stores outside Rehoboth. You can visit Lewes, smaller than Rehoboth but a good day trip...very quaint.

Golf -

There are numerous golf courses - some are Bear Trap Dunes Ocean View Salt Pond Bethany Beach Cripple Creek Golf And CC Dagsboro, Kings Creek, CC Rehoboth Beach, Old Landing Golf Course Rehoboth Beach, Rehoboth CC.

About Mary McDevitt

My wife and I love being near the water. There is a tranquily in the air that is very easy to absorp. That is one of the reasons all three of our homes have pools.

I have been renting my beach vacation rental homes since 1985 when I rented my 1985, new, 7 bedroom oceanfront home in N Bethany for $26,000 for a season. Really. Times and prices have changed. Wish I didn't sell it in 1989!

You can see my two other homes on this site: my Sunset and Indian homes. The three homes sleep three families comfortably in 3500 to 4200 sq ft.

Why Mary McDevitt chose Delaware

Fun, Fun, Fun and More Fun

Private pool, hot tub on the bay, 6 bikes, WIFI, only 100 steps to the beach, many restaurants, coffee shops, go cart track, water slide, movie theater, Fishers popcorn, and many restaurants and stores within walking distance. You can take guided local tours in kayaks, and there great biking in the area. Plus there is an amusement park a few miles away as well as two boardwalks. Private pool, hot tub, 5 bikes, WIFI, only close to the beach, many restaurants, coffee shops, stores within walking distance, local tours in kayaks, and great biking in the area.

And an amusement park a few miles away as well as two boardwalks.

And most of all just 100 steps to the ocean, and our amazingly uncrowded beach.

What makes this house unique

I love the access to the pool and hot tub from the three different spots and the wet bar just inside the home from the pool. Also the open living area on the top floor supports great conversations and connecting and playing as a family or group of friends. The pool deck and the large bay view front deck supports all of your gang hanging out and eating there.

You can launch the 4 paddle boards, 3 kayaks, 1 canoe into the bay quickly and easily from our private dock. You can kayak and canoe (and if you are good also paddle board) to lunch across the bay. The bay is very shallow often only 2 feet deep.

Also the open living area on the top floor supports great conversations and connecting and playing as a family or group of friends. One of my favorite spots is BBQ'ing on the deck off of the kitchen and watching sunsets.

Besides the seven minute walk to the beach and the pool, the best design feature of the home is the multiple areas guests can gather/play-a desk/computer on the ground level, the pool deck with picnic tables for pool and bay side eating and games, the front and side large decks overlooking the bay, the private decks off of two first floor BRs and off of the top floor master, and of course, the open space with the dining, kitchen and great room on the top floor.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My friends and I wanted to take a week before the summer craze began and get away for a fun and relaxing week. This house was more than we expected. We had more than enough room, all the amentities were up to date and were close enough to beaches and restaurants to have the perfect week. We will definitely rent again next year.

Best Vacation at the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house with 2 other families and their children. This house was great for that .The house had plenty of room for everyone. The beach was so close and beautiful.The kids had a blast. they love the pool, hot tub and the paddle boats after the beach. The deck was great for watching the evening sunset with a glass of wine. We loved just relaxing and enjoying everything the house offered. We also enjoyed the local dining, shops and boardwalk. The outlet shopping was great too. Looking forward to another week at the beach.

GREAT WEEK AT THE BEACH

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house to spend time with family, The beach and ocean are right there. Nothing better than that. The house speaks for itself , it has everything and more, The hated pool and hot tub are great. The kitchen is spacious for preparing those family meals and just spending time with the family. We stayed the year before in the red house which is just as great. Also found Mary great to work and telling us about the area as well. the restaurants and tax free shopping are wonderful. We will definitely be back

PERFECT WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house with friends for a weekend getaway. it was perfect. We spent many hours just hanging in the kitchen for morning coffee or in the evening having coffee. We really got to spend with our friends and just relax. We prepared gourmet meals in the beautiful kitchen and enjoyed the sunsets nightly. The hot tub was a bonus. We also took advantage of the tax free shopping. looking forward to doing this again.

Sunset House

  • 5 of 5

For a low key, relaxing vacation, this is the perfect spot! You never have to leave the deck, it's so peaceful and serene. Sunsets are phenomenal! Take your glass of wine, pick your seat, and you' re in heaven. If you must move, there are kayaks in the yard with easy access to the bay. And the beach is just a few blocks away. The Fenwick beaches are the best, quiet and Good surf. As to the house, it is well appointed with everything you could need in the kitchen, which also has great views. Our family will be returning for sure!
