About John Lee

Semi-retired, I am a licensed Washington DC tour guide.

John Lee purchased this house in 1997

Why John Lee chose Delaware

I purchased this house because it is a very quiet and relaxed waterfront location but conveniently located from many attractions and the ocean. Originally I was enticed by a close friend who lives year round on the street but since, have developed several other friends who live there year round.

What makes this house unique

As a single story home, it has all the amenities I need including a quiet deck overlooking adjoining canals. On a dead end street between two canals, you can walk to Harpoon Hannah's. Papa Grande's, Catch 54 or even Walgreens but still tucked away from the main highways.

Amazing home! Family favorite!

We felt right at home! The house is so clean and well stocked. Even though the home allows pets, you would never know any pets had been there. We loved sitting out by the water, and crabbing off the dock. We are looking forward to staying again!

We always love staying here. The house is lovely and well-stocked. Beds are comfortable, view is perfect, the neighborhood is full of friendly folk. Convenient access to launch areas, beach, food, drink, golf and Ocean City. Can't beat the sunsets from the dock!

This was our second stay at John's lovely waterfront home. It was sparkling clean and wonderfully comfortable, just as it was last year. The neighborhood is very quiet, and being on the canal, you have the pleasure of watching ducks with ducklings, geese with goslings. This was also the second year that we watched a turtle lay her eggs in the area adjacent to the canal. Being able to bring our dog is the icing on the cake. The "dog beach" at Fenwick Island State Park is a community of animal lovers that makes for a delightful day, whether you opt to bring your pup or not. It is a family favorite vacation spot, and we will definitely be regulars at John's place!

We'll be Back!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were so impressed with our stay at John's place. He was so wonderful to work with in securing a date and getting paperwork signed. We were amazed at all the amenities John thought of and provided for his guests. This is our third stay on Fenwick Island and will never stay anywhere else. The convenient location to all the restaurants and activities, in addition to the beautiful views off the back deck...we didn't want to leave. The neighborhood is quiet and so friendly. The house itself slept all of us comfortably. We enjoyed drinking our coffee in the morning as we sat out back and fed the ducks. We loved coming home after a night out and just relaxing, listening to the water, and looking up at the stars. For sure our favorite place...thanks John for making your home feel like ours! We can't wait to come back!

Thanks again for helping our family make wonderful memories!

Jay and Sue Z.
