About Benjamin Daniels

Native east coasters, Benjamin and Nancy have two sons, a daughter-in-law and are freshly minted grandparents. They love kicking back at Fenwick Island with family and friends at the beach, at the local restaurants like Nantucket's for dinner or Dirty Harry's for breakfast. An avid cook, Ben whips up great meals for romantic evenings on the deck.

What makes this house unique

We love the house, the location but sitting on the top deck looking down the canal into the bay at night is spectacular.

great house for group of 11

  • 5 of 5

We we're unfortunate enough to have our stay during what seemed like a monsoon, so we didn't have great weather for venturing out. Luckily, the house was perfect for such circumstance. Lots of games, pool, pinball, foosball. Our last day we had a break in the rain and finally enjoyed the deck a bit. We did have one window on the first floor leak A LOT during the storm but aside from that everything else was pretty great. We really enjoyed our stay and may be back.

Bachelor Party Headquarters

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay. There was plenty of room for 12 adults. The pool table, foosball table, and pinball machine was well used as well as the TVs and kitchen. The rear porches and back deck was comfortable and inviting. We rented a boat from Island Watersports and used the dock to allow passengers on and off. The wet bar downstairs was also an excellent touch for our needs.

The only problem we had was the hot tub wasn't ready for our trip, but we still had a great time.

Stayed at this house in August 2016. Was very disappointed. The pool table and hot tub were the drawl for us. Upon arrival we discovered that there were no pool balls and the hot tub was full of sand. We called owner, thinking he would send someone out to at least clean the hot tub and he did not. As far as the pool balls, we were told "they were there before" when we arrived at check in time the cleaning people were still there. The sliding glass doors were filthy and we had to ask for the cleaning people to clean them, because they were leaving and hadn't cleaned them. I could go on about cleanliness in the home, but I believe it would take up too much room. Ice maker doesn't work, and during our walk threw in the winter we let the owner know that, and in August, still wasn't working. All though we had a wonderful time, the house needs some freshening up.

Better than expected!

  • 4 of 5

The pictures online really don't do this place justice. I thought at first that what I got was going to be disappointing, but actually the place is pretty cool. The game room on the first floor, with the Jacuzzi right outside was awesome. However, a handle on the foosball table, old poolballs and pool table, and various other old and worn parts of the house kind of put a small damper on things, it is a huge home with a decent location.

Great Huge Home, Fabulous Time Had By All

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in this home for our Christmas weekend together, my five adult children and their families. The home is beautiful and spacious. It was clean and had everything the description describes and more. We felt comfortable and at home as soon as we walked in. We had a variety of ages ranging from 1 year to 60 and we all had a great time. The biggest hit was the game room, we played pool, pinball, foosball and checkers morning noon and night. Because of such a mild winter we were able to sit out side on the dock enjoying the nice breeze by the water, and had our morning coffee in the wonderful oversized rocking chairs on an upper deck, so awesome. Each deck was amazing. Plenty of room for the family to eat together and play board games. Not to mention a TV in every room and a bathroom for each family's privacy. We would definitely return to this home for another fun filled weekend. We're thinking a summer stay would be amazing!!!
