About the property



We believe that our Indian Home is one of the best beach vacation rental homes in Fenwick island. Our architect designed and we built the home in 2007 to comfortably accommodate multiple families and this beach home has the amenities, beds, showers, state-of-art kitchen, pool, hot tub and open space to provide the essentials that you need to have a wonderful vacation.

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

It has a private pool and hot tub and, in a mere, one minute walk you are at the beach. You can swim all day in the ocean and return to the heated pool (extra fee for heat) for a dip before dinner. The pool and hot tub deck is a generous size making it a perfect spot for all of your guests to hang out or to dine. Additionally, the home has a 44 in plasma TV, 4 additional TVs/DVD players and WIFI. It has a den on the ground level with a LCD TV - far enough away from the top floor that kids and adults can hoot and holler without bothering the less "expressive guests."

Use our six bikes to explore the "island" and to go to Kohr's for a delicious custard cone, pick up the morning paper, bagels and/or donuts, or just enjoy being mobile. Within easy walking distance are many restaurants (one a James Beard award winner), coffee shops, book and clothing shops, 3 mini golf courses, water slide and go cart track. Go to our Resort Pointe blog at for our reviews of restaurants and recommended attractions and specials.

The town hall (3 blocks away) has a great 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 (there is a blog post on the Freeman Stage) And for the off season, we have a see-through gas fireplace, cozy sofa blankets and tear-jerking old DVD movies.

The Quiet, UN-Crowded Beach of Fenwick Island-

The Fenwick guarded beach is a one minute walk from the house. It is amazingly less crowded and quiet compared to the beaches in Ocean City and Bethany Beach-typically Fenwick's beach has 70% less people on it than those beaches. To transport your stuff to the beach we supply a red wagon and 2 Wonder Wheel Beach Caddies to carry your beach gear, munchies and drinks. The Fenwick beach was replenished in the fall of 2014 so it is extremely wide unlike Bethany's beach. Check out the comparison photos of the amount of beach goers on Bethany Beach's beach and Fenwick's on the busiest day of the year in 2015.

Accommodating Your Large Group-

This Fenwick Island, Delaware beach vacation rental home is perfect for families with young children or groups of friends; the home features walk-in showers, a soaking tub, and shower/tubs, two of which are in Jack-and-Jill (with shared toilet) bathrooms; one master suite with a king bed; one master suite with a king and twin bed; one master suite with a king bed and a set of bunks; one junior master suite with a queen-size bed; and another bedroom with one queen-size bed. Also there is a TV room with a queen sleeper sofa and two single futons. You can see 2D floor plans of the home with bed sizes in our photo slide show.

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.

There is off-street parking for 6 cars at the home.

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.

A 30 minute ride from the home takes you to Rehoboth Beach-the town is much larger than Bethany and Fenwick and boasts many shopping and dining options, and a three mile boardwalk, and an amusement park. There are also fabulous sales tax-free outlet shopping at 140 Outlet stores. In minutes you can get to Ocean City with a long boardwalk with a large amusement park and many more restaurants, bars and shops. A 15 minute ride takes you to the Freeman stage for top talent entertainment (see blog). A 5 minute walk takes you to the Sea Discover Museum which houses artifacts from sunken ships in the area. If you are lucky they will bring out a 50 pound gold "necklace" found in a sunken Spanish ship. You can visit Lewes, smaller than Rehoboth but a good day trip...very quaint.

You can take a fishing charter out at the Indian River marina for a half or full day. And a 5 minute ride takes you across the bay where you can rent a boat or jet skis.

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. You can find more at

About Mary McDevitt

Mary is my rental manager for the last 10 years, and I, Ralph Picard, am the owner. You will be working primarily with Mary.

Growing up in Ohio, I first saw the ocean when in college. I immediately loved the energy and excitement that the ocean provided. I've discovered that here is tranquility in the air that is very easy to take in. That is one of the reasons all three of our homes have pools.

I have built, rented and sold 9 beach vacation rental homes since 1985, my first one an ocean front home in Bethany Beach. Before building I talked to many realtors and asked what it takes to comfortably support large groups of family and or friends.

Here are the key features of the homes that comfortably support large groups in our three best in class vacation homes:

• Cooking for the Gang: The kitchens are fully equipped chef's kitchens and spacious. There are 2 BBQs, 2 sinks and 3 refrigerators.

• A Room Of Their Own: Plenty of sleeping spots and bathrooms. Yes, the homes can hold three families and have 3 or 4 Masters.

• The Plus of Privacy: These vacation rental homes have dens and many porches away from the great room/kitchen/dining room for different ages and activities to hang.

• Plenty Of Activities: The rental houses have private heated swimming pools, hot tubs (relax at night in star light with a beer) and many TVs and Wi-Fi.

• Room to Spare: The vacation homes are 3600 to 4200 square feet.

• Off to the beach: There are beach caddies to haul your beach "stuff." And two of the homes are only a one-minute walk to the beach.

• Plenty Of Outdoor Activity: In a 10 minute walk or less there over 25 restaurants, and coffee shops, hoagie shops, a multiplex movie theater, bike rentals, 3 mini golf courses, a water slide, a go cart track, and many shops. And in a 10 minute drive there are another 30 restaurants, many shops, and a boardwalk and amusement park.

You can see my other homes that are also listed on homeaway, at this site resortpointe dot com.

Mary McDevitt purchased this house in 2005

Why Mary McDevitt chose Delaware

Fun, Fun, Fun

Private pool, 5 bikes, 6 person hot tub, WIFI, and close to the beach. And, it comfortably fits 3 families and large groups.

Maybe most of all the home is just 100 steps to the ocean, and our beach is amazingly uncrowded unlike most resort beaches. (please see the photos in the slide show of Bethany Beach vs Fenwick beaches on the busiest day of 2015.)

For food and entertainment, we are within walking distance of many restaurants, coffee shops, go cart track, water slide, movie theater, Fishers popcorn and various stores. 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 of course, the large heated pool and the hot tub. (there is only one other pool in a rental home in Fenwick.)

What makes this house unique

I love the access to the pool and hot tub from the rear two bedrooms. Also the open living area on the top floor supports great conversations and connecting and playing as a family or group of friends. The front large ocean view deck supports all of your gang hanging out and eating there. And, you can also dine on the large pool deck out back.

Besides the one minute walk to the beach and the pool, the best design feature of the home is the layout of multiple areas where guests can gather-a TV sleeping den on the ground level, the computer nook on the midlevel floor, and of course, the open space with the dining, kitchen and great room on the top floor. Plus there are five outdoor gathering areas: the two rear top level decks off of the Master Suites, a top level deck on the front - great for drinks and dining, the mid level front private porch off of another Master, the huge pool and hot tub deck.

With this variety of gathering spaces, soft conversations and loud TV/music and conversations do not conflict.

And of course, the large heated pool and the hot tub.

wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming here for five years and always have a great time. The house has everything and is so relaxing. We love that it is so close to the beach. Also love after we leave the beach that we get to chill out by the pool and hot tub. The gourmet kitchen is great for everybody to hang out in and being part of preparing family meals. We also like the wide variety of restaurants . We are looking forward to next year.

Great Week

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house with our extended family . This house does not disappoint. the pictures do not do this house justice. The house is spacious and cozy all at the same time. The kitchen & dining room area made for great gatherings. The kids love the pool and we love the drinking and relaxing in the hot tub. We had slight problem with the internet but Mary was quick in getting it resolved for us. The local dining was great and of course love the tax free shopping. Can't wait to do it again.

We rented this house last year and love it. The beach is so close to the house and not crowded like they are in Bethany.The house is immaculate and well stocked with all the amenities you could possibly need. The pool and hot tub were great after leaving the beach and for evening swimming. Everyone we met on Fenwick Island were so very friendly. this house has plenty of space so that your teens to go and have fun in private. The shopping and restaurants were great. Working on booking a week for this summer now,

Very close to the beach, quiet neighborhood, good for cyclists, especially for the Bethany ride in April!

Fenwick is called the Quiet Resort. There are no loud outdoor parties, or raucous behavior. Fenwick's fine police insure that!

Relax in the soothing 6 person hot tub. 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. Take a ½ day fishing outing for six with drinks and food. Arrange an eco-kayak tour in salt pond or bay only 1/2 mile away.

Tucked along the southern border of the state, just alongside Ocean City, MD, the town of Fenwick Island is the Delaware beach destination that has everything a family needs. To the north, Fenwick Island State Park offers limitless opportunities for sunbathing, fishing, windsurfing and more. In town, there are endless opportunities for kids' fun, whether it's a round of putt-putt, a go-kart ride, or some delightfully wet waterslide fun at Viking Golf Amusements and Thunder Lagoon Water Park.

Nearby Fenwick Island State Park is a great spot for surf fishing, windsurfing and other outdoor activities. In town, the proximity of many beach homes to the bay make it an ideal spot for those who love to bring their boats and spend their days on the water.

As many moms and dads will attest, Delaware’s beaches are just the spot to keep the kids affordably entertained and happily occupied -- whether its a full day of soaking-wet entertainment at a waterpark, or taken on a side trip for a chilly ice cream cone and some salt-water taffy.

There is a live outdoor Theater, Freeman Stage, for concerts, musicals and plays-and children acting classes

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. Take a ½ day fishing outing for six with drinks and food. Arrange an eco-kayak tour in salt pond. See the following site for details –

Fun food like Kohr Brothers soft ice cream, Fishers popcorn, funnel cakes, fries, pizza, hoagies, etc, and a farmers market are also within a 10 minute walk. Also in that walking distance is a bike shop with bike rentals, many retail stores, and the well known, DiscoverSea Shipwreck museum with recovered shipwreck artifacts and coins. .

You can take a short walk to the pristine beach for swimming and surf fishing, wander for miles in the adjacent Delaware Seashore Park. There are numerous golf courses, bike paths, three boardwalks, and superb dining in 2 states. There are nightly magic shows in Ocean View, a live theater, Freeman Stage at Bayside with times for children’s theater school, and a boot camp 7 AM class on the beach two blocks away.

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

About a half hour from Fenwick, is Rehoboth Beach: The town is much larger than Bethany 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. Lewes: Smaller than Rehoboth but a good day trip...very quaint.

Make memories at Funland (on the boardwalk at 1 Delaware Ave., Rehoboth Beach): Since 1962, families have made memories amid the vintage amusement rides and arcade games at this landmark-by-the-sea. Kid-friendly activities are essential to Funland’s legacy – and when it’s time to head home, stop by for a treat at nearby Grotto Pizza, Dolle's or the Candy Kitchen.

About a mile from Fenwick Island is the heart of Ocean City Maryland. The city has a long boardwalk with an amusement park with a roller coaster, bars, dance clubs, museums, shopping, and many other stores and activities.
