About Kathy Ryan

I loved my trips to the eastern shore -- Ocean City MD, Fenwick Island, Rehoboth and Bethany -- as a child and then later as a young, single lady with my friends. When I became a mother, I decided to invest in a place of my own where I could spend time with my daughters and large, extended family. I looked at many many homes in the area -- but when I walked into this open, airy and bright house right on the oceanfront I fell in love and felt completely at home and knew I would love to spend time here year round.

I'm really happy that we have been able to share this wonderful spot with regular renters over the years, and I still love to spend time here with my family both during the summer and off season -- my favorite time of year. Fenwick Island and the surrounding area has quickly turned into a vibrant year round community that maintains it's quiet character.

A local, family owned property management business -- Kleinstuber Associates -- is on hand to provide you with fast and friendly customer service while you are our guest. John's family has been in business in Fenwick Island since 1977.

Kathy Ryan purchased this house in 1999

Why Kathy Ryan chose Fenwick Island

When you are right on oceanfront, any season is great for a get a way, not just summer. Spring and fall are just about perfect with the temperate mid atlantic weather. The crowds are concentrated in the summer season, but that thins out in spring and fall. It's a perfect time to sit on the oceanfront deck or enjoy the local shops and restaurants. Winter is special too -- there's nothing like know on the beach. My house is cool in the winter and cozy in winter and fall. In the past several years some amazing restaurants have opened up in Fenwick Island. They are all walking distance and have added even more to the appeal of this quiet little town.

What makes this house unique

In addition to a beautiful oceanfront deck with adirondack chairs, the second floor master bedroom suite overlooks the ocean -- if you care to, keep those drapes open and wake up the sunrise! An additional upper level deck is perfect for sunning. The shaded street side deck is perfect for sitting and watching the bikers, runners, and strollers go by on Bunting Avenue.

Guestbook comments from the owner

. . . but none of them could compare with the one I viewed at this lovely seaside home in Fenwick, watching the waves in such comfort."

Great for kids and adults - no compromises

  • 5 of 5

I love my vacations at this beach house and look forward to them every year. It is the perfect combination of kid friendly (right on the beach, plenty of sleeping space, all the comforts of home) and adult fun (walk to local bars, great restaurants nearby, etc.) The Pirate museum up the street is a highlight for kids but really, what I love is that we can roll out of bed in the morning and be on the beach in just a few minutes. The house is very clean and well maintained and the kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need from a kids birthday party to a barbecue. The master bedroom is a real sanctuary - we always get a great nights sleep there. I look forward to returning again next summer!

Owner's Response: I wanted to mention that in addition to the large screen television in the family room, both of the master bedrooms, and a third of the four bedrooms, have televisions. Our renters really like this because it allows individuals or family groupings to get away from "the gang" for alone time if they need it! Of course there is WiFi, so laptaps can be used throughout the house. Glad you enjoy the house!

Luxury yet perfect for a family

  • 5 of 5

My extended family of 11 has stayed here two years in a row. It is an amazing house and PERFECT for a big family vacation. My parents had the downstairs bedroom and private bath and there was plenty of room upstairs in the other bedrooms for the other three families. Two bedrooms have built-in bunks plus regular beds and the rooms are really big! The upstairs master is like an apartment in and of itself. We loved that there were so many family living spaces because we could all have our own space and never felt on top of each other. The views are amazing, and the proximity to all the restaurants, shops and bars in Fenwick cannot be beat. Fenwick is a great little town. Quaint beach town but none of the hustle of Ocean City or Rehoboth, yet all the other towns are so close. You really don't need to get in your car after you arrive in this house, except maybe for a grocery trip.

This was also a great house for my father, who uses a walker because there is a ramp that goes up the side of the house, making it very accessible for elderly or the handicapped.

Despite his limited mobility he didn't feel that he missed a bit of the action because we were right on the beach.

The house is very clean, beautifully decorated and very livable.

Can't wait until next year to go back!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words! I'm glad you mentioned the suitability of the house for elders or people with mobility issues. There is a second master bedroom on the "main level" of the house. This room is directly off the "family room" and on the same level as the kitchen, living room, dining room, and kitchen, as well as two large decks, one that overlooks the beach, and the other that overlooks the street. This means that guests who prefer not to navigate the stairs can pretty much hang on one level and not miss out on any of the fun. The listing here on Homeaway includes a "virtual tour" of the home with photos and a very clear floor plan that will give a better idea of the set up ... useful for planning who can sleep where.

You will Love, Love, Love this house!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house rocks. We did a multi family vacation at this house and it was perfect. Boys Bunk Room, Girls Bunk Room and two masters! There is so much room in this house, young teens slept on the family room couch - they loved to camp out there and watch TV. Then the adults loved the living room - we could be close to the cooks in the kitchen (that area is so open and with the living area, dining table, bar stools,etc - we had so much space). Sound system is very nice with speakers in multiple locations so we listened to tunes and sipped cocktails with the roar of the ocean in the background. There is a screened porch on the back side of the house that is huge and great for a party with all the families. You just can't believe how large the rooms are in this house. We had multiple families and we had plenty of space. The oceanfront view is spectacular. My boys even slept on the deck one night - very, very secure and only accessible from the house really. I have rented luxury beach homes for my sisters/brother and our families to congregate over the years, this one is the best ever! Don't miss walking to Nantuckets for adult time (we went in shifts). Also the kids loved doing the bonfire on the beach and going to the shipwreck museum right across from Nantuckets (yep, walk to that too). It doesn't get any better for a quality family vacation.
