The private neighborhood pool is meticulously maintained (so close - 30 second walk from the front door) and features a bath house with two bathrooms and plenty of lounge chairs and unbrellas. And the private bay front can't be beat! Take the lovely, 2 minute walk down the private bay path and enjoy fishing and crabbing off of the pier, sunbathing on the sandy bayfront beach, and relaxing in the cabana which features a screened in dining area, porch and decking for bayside family gatherings.

We even had guests celebrate their wedding at the bayside cabana! You can catch waves in the morning at the ocean , float in the pool after lunch, and relax bayside while enjoying incredible sunset views. Without ever getting in your car!! Sounds like a perfect day! Property is only about a 2 minute drive to Fenwick Island State Park where you can enjoy beach, concessions, bath house, and umbrella rentals.

This home also has an attached two car garage, a kayak, beach chairs and umbrellas for you to enjoy.

Fenwick Island is a charming town with a great location. Just a few miles north are the Bethany beaches and boardwalk. Head in the other direction and you'll be in Ocean City in a jiffy. And for more fun, take a ride to Rehoboth (about 20 minutes drive) and enjoy the boardwalk and awesome outlet shopping!! Or take the two minute drive to Fenwick island State Park. Fun in every direction!

Our family loves Fenwick Island. It really is a special place. I think you'll enjoy it as much as we do.

About Margo Gallaway

We live in Maryland and have enjoyed summer vacations with our kids since they were babies! The beach is a very special place for us. We hope it is for you, too.

Margo Gallaway purchased this townhome in 2011

Why Margo Gallaway chose Fenwick Island

We chose Salt Meadows because of the amazing location. The house itself is very comfortable with a great floor plan. But the outside features really set it apart. There's always something to do, for everyone. The easy access to the beach, bay and pool makes this such a unique property. We knew the second we saw it that it was the vacation home for us. We look forward to creating lots of family memories for years to come.

What makes this townhome unique

There are so many things we love about the location. It's less than a mile from Fenwick Island State Park. It's also very close to Bethany Beach's boardwalk. We enjoy riding our bikes to Bethany. The bay front is gorgeous for sunset watching and fishing. My teenage kids obviously like the Ocean City boardwalk :) The list goes on. Never a dull moment - always something fun to do.

Guestbook comments from the owner


What a wonderful vacation we had, it could not have been better. My husband and I could never have done the stairs, the elevator was a blessing. The grandchildren spent many hours on the dock (by the bay). Many memories were made by all. Definitely want to return the same week next year. (Comments emailed to owner)

Our dream family vacation at Margo's gorgeous home

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying in Salt Meadows for the past 9 years. This summer we made a change on our week and our other home was unavailable....but this was a "BLESSING in disguise." This home is different from all the other units in Salt Meadows in that it has both a BAY AND OCEAN VIEW! Also, although the family room/den & and Master bath are slightly smaller, it makes up for this space sacrifice with a larger living room, state of the art kitchen AND a heavenly 5th bedroom (They call it the "Ocean Room") which is about 2 & 1/2 - 3 times the size of all the other units in which we stayed. If you have never tried Salt Meadows, I almost don't want to tell you how perfect it is! (YOU will give me competition for my week!) This area of Fenwick Island DE is unlike any other area of the East coast. It has all the lovely QUIET beach atmosphere of staying in Outer Banks or North Myrtle Beach adjacent to the Nature Preserve, BUT it also has the myriad of restaurant/mini golf choices just minutes away in OCMD! With a lovely community pool which is rarely too crowded, why drive 4-7 more hours south? You will find that the owners are very prompt in answering questions and helping you with anything that needs to be done. (Although we had NO issues during our stay...everything was perfect!) Margo also stocks her kitchen with EVERY piece of cookware you might need. (We celebrated our son's 30th birthday with ease making all of his favorite foods thanks to the well-stocked kitchen!) In the 5 spacious bedrooms, amazing beds in the 2 masters, and SUMPTOUS MASTER BATH (UNBEATABLE!) there was plenty of room for my sister & I to bring our children and our Mom (who did not need the elevator but could have made use of it since she is 86.) Everyone had a wonderful time and we hope to have the blessing of returning in the future!

With a grateful heart,

Jen Shaffer from PA Dutch Country (Denver, PA)

P.S. Would you "Pretty Please with SUGAR ON TOP," consider trading to a FRI-FRI OR SUN-SUN rental. You could probably find that your cleaners might charge slightly less and I know this renter would pay MORE! (You would save us the hotel bills we paid for 2 rooms coming down Friday evening and staying until Sunday AM to avoid the Saturday horrific TRAFFIC CRUNCH! We would even consider renting TWO separate weeks because we come down 4 times a year!

Beachgiving 2016

  • 5 of 5

6 adults and 4 kids ages 9-12 stayed at Margo's condo over Thanksgiving (Grandkids coined the phrase Beachgiving). The condo is very roomy and laid out very nicely for meals, converstion and privacy, if desired. The elevator was a life safer for loading, unloading and for my wife's foot issues. We spent time at the sound, the beach, ocean city boardwalk , harpoon hanna's and of course the rehoboth outlet malls. Condo is conveniently located to all. Can walk to sound and beach. Beautiful sunsets! Clean and comfortable! Would recommend to all!

My granddaughter even made a shutterfy book for our stay and all the grandkids are asking when we can do it again.

Lots to do for young families and very comfortable home!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Margo's home for our first time ever exploring Fenwick Island. There were 6 adults and 4 kids. The flexibility of being walking distance from the bay, the pool, and the beach was huge with little kids. If the parents wanted to relax more, we went to the bay which has a nice sand area for the kids to spread out without having to lug every possible beach item and picnic tables to do a casual meal. We'd bring lunch to the pool which was the super close and even had 2 bathrooms which is huge with kids in tow. The beach was the "furthest" (across Route 1) but the whole island at that point is only 2 blocks and a 4 lane road wide. It's a beautiful beach. The home had plenty of space for us all, and we made the room off the kitchen the playroom so the adults played cards at the kitchen table, and the kids were in eyeshot playing and watching movies together. We went to the Ocean City boardwalk one night, but otherwise we found we had plenty to do without getting in a car. We also left an item at the house by accident, and Margo was super helpful in getting it back. If we weren't planning a New England trip next year, we would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home, thank you Margo for sharing your home. We were a three generation family, and there was plenty of space for everyone. The home is furnished with everything you need for a wonderful vacation. The elevator was great for the older generation. Beach, bay and pool all within a very short distance. I had my doubts, but it is true. We hope to return!

Great house, but not accessible

  • 4 of 5

Generally, the beach house was great, but the accessibility was not. The house was listed as accessible, but none of the bathroom doorways were wide enough to accomodate a walker or wheelchair. Bathrooms didn't have grab bars either. The elevator was very tempermental. I don't think the owner realized that having an elevator is not sufficient, and is planning to reconsider listing the property as accessible.

Otherwise, the house was great! Very convenient to both beach and bay!!! Crossing Route 1, even with little kids and a wheelchair, was not a problem. The location is also convenient to Bethany, Fenwick, and Ocean City by car or bike (there are bikes in the garage, but they have seen better days).

The house itself is very nice! Lots of light. Lots of stairs. Lots of beach artwork. :)

The master bathroom is amazing - huge shower, jacuzzi tub, double sinks! We want a bathroom like that at home!! The only catch is the people staying in the other bedroom on that floor have to walk through the master bedroom to access the bathroom.

The den was a huge plus as well. We used it as the kids' bedroom. They loved it and didn't want to move to a bedroom when one became available. I would recommend adding curtains/blinds for the glass doors so you can block the light from the dining room as desired.

The pool was another huge plus of this property. Beach, pool, jacuzzi. Beach, pool, jacuzzi. Loved it!

A word of warning about the beach because I was a little shocked when we first arrived. The beach at this location does not have lifeguards and there are vehicles driving on the beach. At first I was rather disturbed by the vehicles, but it turned out to be more of an aesthetic issue than a safety issue. If you want a lifeguard, you can go to the State Park, which is a 2 minute drive away.

Last, but not least, I challenge future visitors to complete the ladybug puzzle. My daughter pulled it out right when we arrived and it took us almost the entire week to complete it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a detailed review. I appreciate it! Thank you for bringing the accessibility issue to my attention. I have already updated my listing based on our phone conversation. My listing now clearly states, "Please let me know if you need the elevator - it is turned on as needed. Although there is an elevator, the property has standard sized doors and does not have handicap railings in tubs and showers. Please check with me with wheel chair dimensions so we can make sure door openings are wide enough." Hopefully, this will clear up any confusion in the future. I did email you on 1/1/14, prior to your stay, stating, "bathroom doors are standard width." It is my goal to describe my property accurately so my guests know exactly what to expect and I think that the additional explanation regarding accessibility will be very helpful to future renters. So thank you! So glad to hear enjoyed the townhouse and amenities. We also love, love, love the master suite! I don't think the pictures do it justice. Yes,the den serves well as a "6th bedroom". I believe many of our guests use it that way. Thank you for choosing our place for your beach vacation. We welcome you back any time!!

Ocean City Boardwalk

This beautiful home is situated just steps from private beach, private bayfront, and pool. Located in Salt Meadows, a luxury town home cummunity of 20 homes, on the bay side. Very unique property - it's hard to find a home that is steps away from both the beach, the bay, and private neighborhood pool. Fenwick Island State Park entrance is less than a mile from this home. Enjoy all the park has to offer - life guard, showers, rest rooms, snack bar and more. Or simply walk steps to the private beach. Lots to do in Fenwick Island! Best location in Fenwick - very rare to find a property that has beach, bay, and pool within walking distance. Absolutely perfect for family vacations. You never even need to leave the neighborhood! All you need for summer fun is steps away.
