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.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
The home was simply amazing. Clean, light and airy and the views were breathtaking. Love the location. You can easily get to Ocean City within minutes. Many restaurants closeby. Loves our vacation here!!
Our First Beach Rental Wonderful
We have now returned home from our Fenwick Island vacation at 805 Bunting Ave. We were blessed with wonderful weather. We loved your home and were able to celebrate our 50 years of marriage with our whole family! I was amazed that the house was exactly as pictured and promised. It looked just like the photos you provided. We know you update photos often and that really showed. The open layout made it possible to all be together and the back family room made it possible to give the children a place to play and watch TV. The downstairs master gave my daughter a private place to "work from the beach". The ocean view was spectacular from the downstairs deck and the upstairs deck. We were blessed with a beautiful sunrise on our last morning.
The beach access was another bonus. It was easy to go back to the beach often for a morning walk with coffee, to a lunch break and an evening stroll on the beach. We were also able to walk to many places and took advantage of the ice cream, candy, popcorn and pizza. Dinner for some of the adults at Nantuckets was another easy walk. (Lobster roll is the best!)
Our first beach rental was a success. Thank you for all your support and helping us through this new adventure!
Dear Eileen, thank you for taking the time to leave such a lovely review. This is my family's personal home (we are not real estate agents) so it means a lot fo us when a family comes in who appreciates the home as much as we do. I'm glad to hear your first rental experience was a good one and I hope we have the chance to host you in the future. Kathy
Everything about this home--and it is a home, not simply a house--is perfection. It's clear that a lot of heart and soul has gone into creating and maintaining a vibrant yet peaceful gathering place for a family vacation.
Tastefully decorated with a hint of whimsy, from the amazing original art to the "alligators" and Zen frog that adorn the beachside lawn, the home is located within walking distance to almost everything. (I drove to the grocery store and to the outlets in Rehoboth; otherwise walking and biking got me where I wanted to go.)
Plans fell through for this to be our first family vacation with both my adult children and their young families, which is really the best way to enjoy the home, but I found the "bustling quiet" great for writing and other creative projects while taking notes on all the wonderful ways to make that first group vacation a good one, hopefully next season.
Thank you to Kathy and to the Kleinstubers for making this such a memorable stay.
Thank you so much for noticing the "personal touches" that have gone into our beach house. We own this house and take our vacations here as well -- and we love to have guests that love it a much as we do. One of the things that our guests really appreciate is that we have a local family -- the Kleinstubers -- act as property managers and hosts in our absence. The Kleinstubers are a brother and sister who have been doing business in Fenwick Island for more than 30 years. They welcome our guests and are there right down the street should any needs arise during the stay. I'm glad everything worked out for you, and I hope we have the chance to host you again in the future. All the best, Kathy Ryan
We had a great vacation, the house was everything we could have wanted. It was comfortable, spacious and homey. The beach was amazing and only a short walk away. Be aware though that linens and towels are not provided, you must either bring your own or rent them. Otherwise, everything else was great.
Beautifully designed oceanfront oasis
Let me start off by saying wow, what a well designed, super functional & beautiful house this is. Each & every corner of this house is well thought out. The house is 3 floors of space, with the bottom floor dedicated to parking, outdoor showers, beach chair storage etc. The first floor is the main living area. I loved the separation between the media room & the kitchen/living room. The dining area opens up on a beautiful deck. There is plenty of seating for a big group. Kitchen is well stocked, plenty of pots/pans/spoons etc. The drink ware is extensive. We had everything we needed and more. The top floor has the master bedroom and two additional bedrooms, and two decks. This house was a perfect long weekend at the beach. Plenty of indoor and outdoor space, quick and easy access to the beach.
A few things to note: there are more bunk beds than regular beds, i,e. about 10 beds for kids, 6 for adults. The bunk beds do not fit anyone taller than 5ft 2-3 inches comfortably. Second, the water pressure in the house is such that you cannot use all showers at the same time. So do stagger the usage, else there will not be enough water for the showers. We could not figure out how to set up the telescope nor get the speakers in the living area to play, perhaps user error. Neither of those took away from our stay.
We had a minor issue or two during the stay and both Kathy and the agency were super responsive. We absolutely loved our stay and highly recommend Kathy’s house.
I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed the house and really appreciate your kind words about the space, the design and floor plan , the access to decks and the beach, the kitchen and barware supplies, etc. I hope we have the chance to host you again! To clarify the bed configuration — we have two master bedroom suites and each has a king size bed. We have an additional en-suite room with a queen sized bed and four bunk beds. Each of the bunks has a standard size twin mattress. An additional bedroom has two standard size twin beds, and additional four bunks, each of them with a standard sized twin mattress. All the best, and thanks again, Kathy
