Why The Owner chose Selbyville

We bought this property because we wanted a waterfront home, where we could keep a boat and enjoy the natural beauty of the Delmarva Peninsula. We also wanted to be close to the Delaware and Ocean City beaches, where we meet up with family and friends on a regular basis. Our place is the perfect getaway from all of the hustle and bustle of our stressful work gives us just a little bit of heaven on earth!

What makes this house unique

We enjoy biking, crabbing, boating, kayaking, swimming at the community pool, and golf at Bayside Resort Golf Club. This outstanding course was designed by Jack Niklaus and is located right next to our community!

Beautiful, well cared for home

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home with room for large numbers without feeling cramped. Our family had a wonderful week. The owners were immediately available to answer any questions. It was such a relief to rent from owners who take pride in their home. We loved the outdoor space and the quiet neighborhood. The kitchen was extremely well stocked and large enough for several cooks at one time. We look forward to returning.

Another wonderful year at your lovely home. We had 13 folks ranging from 1yr. to 90 yrs. old. In total, We had about 60 folks at the family reunion for Beach Week 2013. It was so nice to come back from the beach to some peace and quiet. Meal times were wonderful daily social events dining on the porch at that huge table. Lots of fun and laughs were enjoyed all week long. It was cloudy one day so we took the folks to Ocean Downs Casino. My brother picked us up at your dock and took us for boat rides. This was our 3rd year at your home and we plan to return next summer for Beach Week 2014. Thank you for sharing your home with all of us.

A Real Charmer

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this wonderful home in early August. This is the best house we have ever rented, and we rent a beach home every year so we have many to which to compare. The house was modern, comfortably and tastefully decorated, and incredibly roomy (much roomier than the pictures make it appear, with a very open floor plan). The bedrooms were also ample sized, and the master bedroom (1st floor level) was absolutely huge. The kitchen was well equipped and there is a wonderful sun room overlooking the canal that has a large dining table that seats about 10 people, in addition to wrap couch seating off to the side in the same room that can seat others. There is also lunch/dinner seating around the kitchen island or in a separate dining room. Apart from the inside of the house, it was really the views out the back of the house that sold us. We loved taking our early morning coffee out on the dock and watching the birds fly over the canal. Our daughter crabbed off of the dock one day and had so much fun! And my husband and I rented a double seated kayak for the week (Coastal Kayak delivers to the house), and it was such a joy to explore the canals and the bay. We thought we would mind the three mile drive down to the beach, but it turned out not to be an issue at all. We always found parking, and were happy to have this home to come home to each day. Thanks to the owners for all they did to make it such a wonderful stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very informative review. Readers visiting our site will gain some very useful information on our house and it's surroundings from your review. The tip you gave about the drive to the ocean being so easy and Coastal Kayak delivering kayaks to the house was great! That is something I didn't know, so thanks for sharing! We would love to accommodate you and your family again.

Well.....another great year in Fenwick Island and at this property. We said we would return and return we did. It was well worth the long drive from Michigan to enjoy our family in this beautiful home. We had 11 adults and two babies and the accommodations worked out perfectly. Our son even spent two nights on the sofa on the enclosed sun porch. He loved the cool breeze and the sound of crickets at night and chirping birds in the morning. The home is great for large families and the beautiful table on the enclosed porch was the gathering spot for our family dinners. We have already reserved again for next summer and once January rolls around we will be counting the days until vacation. Once again, thank you for the beautiful accommodations. See you next summer!!!

WOW!! What a wonderful time. This rental property is everything the write up says it is and more. We never expected such a beautiful home. Easy drive to the beach and lovely evenings by the dock enjoying a glass of wine with family. There wasn't anything we needed that wasn't included in the rental. The home owners were just great to deal with and couldn't have been more helpful. The home is immaculate and everything is brand new. Lots of room to accommodate a large family. Beautiful enclosed sun porch with the breeze in the late afternoon. Other than your food and linens, everything is provided. Tons of pots, pans, dishes, etc. Nice grill on the deck. We even caught some small crabs on the dock. What fun! We went to the Rusty Rudder in Rehobeth one evening but had a blast at a local restaurant called Mia Fratello's. They have a great entertainer on Tuesday nights. Our vacation was most enjoyable as the weather was great and our rental home could not have been nicer. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us. See you next year!
