We believe that our Sunset Home is one of the best beach vacation rental homes in Fenwick island. Our architect designed and we built the home in 2006 to comfortably accommodate 16 and this beach home has the amenities, beds, showers, furniture, kitchen and open space to provide the essentials that 16 people need to have for a kick a-- vacation.
Capture the Best of Both the Ocean and the Bay,
In this magnificently appointed Fenwick Island, Delaware, luxury, beach vacation rental home. Watch sunsets from this luxurious, bay front, Fenwick Island beach vacation rental home, only 8 minute walk to the ocean! The Sunset beach home was designed to support large groups - it sleeps up to 16 and the kitchen/dining and living area are designed for large gatherings and to maximize the awesome water views.
The Quiet, Un-Crowded Beach of Fenwick Island-
The Fenwick beach is amazingly less crowded and quiet compared to the beaches in Ocean City and Bethany Beach. Typically Fenwick's beach has up to 70% less people on it compared to Bethany and Ocean City. (See how crowded Bethany Beach's beach is versus Fenwick Island's in the incredible photos on this site, taken on the same day and time, July 4, 2015). Fenwick is called the Quiet Resort.
Your Group Will Surely Have Fun When They Stay in this Rental Home-
It has a private pool and hot tub overlooking the bay. You can swim all day in the ocean and return to the heated pool (extra fee for heat) for a dip before dinner. You will be equipped for adventure travel with 4 paddle boards (arrives for the 2016 season), 6 bikes, 3 kayaks(one a double), and 1 canoe. You can launch the paddle boards, canoe and kayaks from our private dock, from which you can also catch crabs and skip rocks across the water. Additionally, the home has a 44 in plasma TV, 4 additional TVs/DVD players and WIFI. It is just a short 8 minute walk to the beach. Also within easy walking distance are many restaurants (one a James Beard award winner), coffee shops, shops, 3 mini golf courses, water slide and go cart track. Use our bikes to explore the "island" and/or to go to Kohr's for a delicious custard cone, pick up the morning paper, bagels and/or donuts, or just enjoy being mobile. Within easy walking distance are many restaurants (one a James Beard award winner), coffee shops, shops, 3 mini golf courses, water slide and go cart track.

Going to the Beach and Other Details-
The Fenwick guarded beach is about an 8 minute walk from the house. To transport your beach "stuff" to the beach we supply 2 Wonder Wheel Beach Caddies.

The Fenwick beach was replenished in the Fall of 2014 so they are extremely wide unlike Bethany's beach.

myself and 3 other couples rented this house for Valentine/President weekend. This house did not disappoint and our dates were impressed with how nice and clean the place was. there was plenty of room so that you were never on top of each other , yet plenty of room for everyone to hang together. It was great to be able to walk on the beach and spend time in the hot tub. this house had great restaurants and shopping. my favoite restaurants were Bethany blue sand the Big Fish Grill. We will be back.

We rented this house last year with our children and 2 other families. this house does not disappoint. the pictures do not do this house justice. The house is spacious and cozy all at the same time. the kitchen & dining room area made for great gatherings. the kids love the pool and we love the drinking and relaxing in the hot tub. We had slight problem with the internet but Mary was quick in getting it resolved for us. The local dining was great and of course love the tax free shopping. Cant wait for to be here again,

We had 6 kids and 14 adults and the home was quite adequate space wise. It was a gem in many ways-the large in deck pool, the wonderfully playful interior colors, the two areas for the kids to gather a long way from the adults, the highly functional kitchen and the delicious interior design touches.
