Beautiful 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath townhomes featuring spectacular water views; ocean views from the front and bay views from the rear. Spacious floor plan includes central air conditioning, washer/dryer, dishwasher, microwave, and outside shower. Three outdoor decks facing the bay. Short walk to the beach! (non-smoking) no pets, occupancy 10. Located across from Fenwick Island State Park. quiet area.
This was a fantastic place to stay. The townhouse was beautiful, clean and spacious. There were plenty of common supplies that were included like dish towels, soap, spices, etc. that have not been in other rentals that we used in the past. Bikes, umbrella, cooler, beach toys, etc. were also provided in the closet downstairs. The outdoor shower and hose were helpful as well. The view was fantastic over the bay and the walk to the beach was not difficult at all, even with 5 young children. We have used many VRBO's and would recommend this rental to anyone headed to the Fenwick/Bethany area.
We had a wonderful stay at this property. I was a little worried going in for 2 reasons- first, because there were no reviews on this site, and second because the pictures make the common area look a little small. I'm happy to say there was no reason for worry. The pictures do not do justice to the common area- it's big and light and spacious. The kitchen is large and well furnished. The whole place gets a lot of light (except possibly the front downstairs bedroom, and that was fine with us in the mornings!) The upstairs master bedroom is gorgeous. A note about that extra side room- it's lovely, but it is open to the downstairs and you need to walk through it to get to the bedroom, so it would be hard to use as an extra room for a young child as we had considered doing. (but the closet up there was so big, it was fine for a small baby! with the door left open a crack of course, nice and dark.)
Plenty of pillows all around
The other concern I had was that I did not realize it is actually on the bay side of the highway. Crossing the street turned out not to be a problem at all- we rarely had to wait long before a good break between cars. The walk across the dune to the actual beach was more of an issue, but even that got easier after we perfected our technique. (used a beach cart, carried toddlers on shoulders, left the big wheeled stroller at home.)
The porches were fantastic- especially at night we loved going out there and smelling the ocean air. And the location was great for access to the beach right across the street, the Fenwicke Island State Park a half mile away (with concessions and bathrooms), Bethany and Rehobeth to the North and Ocean City to the south- all of which we visited during our stay.
The covered parking for two cars (with one in front of the other) was very convenient when we were packing to leave in the rain. The rest of the time, it was great to have the extra spot outside so 2 different cars could come and go without having to coordinate.
Finally, the layout with the master bedroom on the 3rd floor and other bedrooms on the ground floor (with main floor in between) worked especially well for us to separate two families so that noise from young kids didn't disturb the other family. (we were two couples, one with twin toddlers, one with a newborn. technically it was one bedroom more than we needed, but that turned out to be useful for separating a snoring spouse. :))
All in all, I would definitely recommend this property. Enjoy!
