Of course, this does not include the ocean and sitting on the dock which are perfect for hanging out with a special family member or friend.
With this variety of gathering spaces, soft conversations and loud TV/music and soft conversations do not conflict.
Our heated pool is one of only 5 rental homes with pools in Fenwick, and three of them are ours. As the photos show our pool is on the bay offering great water access and views, allows the use of our paddle boards, kayaks and canoe and dock. The pool deck has picnic tables. And adjacent to the pool, there is a large outdoor shower and in on one corner of the pool deck is the rear den with a wet bar and mini refrigerator where you can keep beverages cold and easily accessible.

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, 11:30 AM, July 4, 2015). Fenwick is called the Quiet Resort. The Fenwick beach was replenished in the fall of 2016, so it is extremely wide unlike that of Bethany beach.
Your Family/Group Will Surely Have Fun When They Stay in this Rental Home-
You can swim in our private pool 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 our 6 paddle boards, 8 bikes, 4 kayaks (one a double), and 1 canoe. You can launch the paddle boards, canoe and kayaks from our private dock, or just catch crabs and skip rocks across the water from the dock.
The home is within easy walking distance to 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 8 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 ResortPointe.com site blog for our reviews of restaurants and recommended attractions and specials.
