About the property

Townhome W/4 Br, 3 1/2 Ba On The Bay, Just Steps To Pool, Short Walk To Ocean

Escape frenetic city life to the serenity of heron and osprey calls, sunset over Little Assawoman Bay (literally, your back yard) with panoramic Bay views from 2 balconies and windows on 3 levels-- YET-- just across the street from the pounding surf of the most desirable section of the Delaware State Park seashore --

Rated #1 again this year for clean swimming water by National Resources Defense Council. There is even an ocean view from the picture window on the second floor landing. Email for additional pix of interior and views.This ideal 4 bedroom hideaway in desirable Kings Grant is on a unique barrier island at the nexus of the Atlantic Ocean and Little Assawoman Bay-- at this point only a few hundred yards apart. In almost no other venue on either coast is there such direct access to both.

At your doorstep and literally in front and under your balconies is the Bay, with views of numerous islands and wetlands, with its attendant wildlife--and the pier for your use for boating, crabbing or just swinging your legs. The pool, just steps from your door, is ON THE BAY with stunning views and breezes for swimming, reading or just contemplation.

And just cross the two lane road to the walkway over the most significant dunes in the 20+ mile stretch of beach from Rehoboth to Ocean City. Unlike the other towns, Fenwick Island has always protected its dunes from over-development and they are of a size and wildness rarely seen, with 75 acres of protected (undeveloped) dunes and beach for 2.5 miles, beginning literally a few feet from your crossover at the far end of Kings Grant.

Stroll the miles of broad beach and Cape Cod style dunes with the ocean on one side and the bay on the other, counting the pods of dolphin (over 300,000 of them make this area their summer home) who frequently come into the breakers area to say hello and put on a show with their acrobatics.

Situated on the edge of 50 acres of protected dunes, this is the essence of the Quiet Resort of residential (unincorporated) Fenwick Island. You can swim in the ocean or the pool, body surf and boogie board, kayak on the bay or with the dolphins in the ocean, crab or take prized photographs from the pier, fish from either the pier or in the ocean surf across the street, or walk 2+ miles north on an unobstructed protected beach with dunes on one side and ocean on the other til you reach South Bethany. Or walk 2 miles to Ocean City in the other direction. All without getting in a car.

And bring your dog, to walk or to swim in the surf, because this area

of beach is one of the very few in the nation that permits dogs on

the beach 365 days a year, 24 hrs per day (on leash, of course). And

well behaved dogs are welcome in this house (only one at a time please) where the new bamboo floors are indestructible, as well as charming.

Fabulous photo opps on the Bay in high season or off season, when a roaring fire is a fitting end to an autumn or spring day at the beach.

Located 1 mile from Fenwick Island town, 2 miles from South

Bethany, and 2 miles from the action of Ocean City, this 3-4 bedroom, 3.5

bath townhouse is part of the premier Kings Grant association.

Sleeping 8 (not including LR sleep sofas), this house is ideal for a family (one species or two), for 2-3 couples or for a small 'circle of friends' to spend a relaxing week away from it all. Improvements made in winter 2010 include new expanded screened-in lower deck, enlarged open lower deck, and much larger open upper deck off MBR; all new doors, sliders and windows, and new siding and front porch deck.

High speed wireless access means you can stay in touch while counting the herons and egrets in the bay on one of the three decks.

And you will snack, drink and be merry on the decks, dine with full bay views (and make full use of the electric barbecue grill).

This house is fully furnished, including complete cook’s kitchen, two queen beds, pair of twin beds and a euro sofa bed in den that sleeps two. In addition to its proximity to Bethany and Ocean City, with its Boardwalk and kids' activities, this beach hideaway is 25 min to Rehoboth, with its sophisticated nightlife and shopping (and tax free outlets).

Direct Bay front with unobstructed views north and south and west, as well as a small ocean view from the front of the house. Kings Grant has both a pier on the bay and a crosswalk over the dunes to the beach (right across the street). Little Assawoman Bay provides opportunities for sailing, wind surfing, boating, fishing, kayaking, clamming or crabbing. And of course beach combing, hiking, biking, bird watching, sightseeing/shopping, fine and casual dining and nightlife, amusement parks and miniature golf are all available nearby.

Why Jim Thompson chose Fenwick Island

It is the stunning views of Little Assawoman Bay in the 'back yard' that hooked us! Not to mention the 'private' feel of the beach at Kings Grant, the undeveloped expanse of beach and dunes, and also the pool right on the bay.

What makes this townhome unique

Whether at the beach or gazing at the bay, you can easily imagine that you are 'away from it all.' Yet this location allows you the opportunity to reach many of the highlights, amenities, and activities of the DE-MD shore--Fenwick Island, Ocean City, MD, Bethany Beach, Dewey Beach, Rehoboth Beach--in little time.

Great venue for a family to relax

  • 5 of 5

The bay front was spectacular and distance to the boardwalk to the beach was easy to manage with boggie boards towels. The house was lovely. The only drawback was that each of the rooms had queen-sized beds or a futon, so my boys were not in the same room, but rather spread out through the house. All of the beds were super comfortable! Thanks for a great stay.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house and the location! It was perfect for a long weekend in the off season with 5 adults and two young kids. The screened porch and view of the bay can not be beat! Jim was great to work with and quick in responding. Looking forward to another trip!

Quiet Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Spent a relaxing week at this comfortable townhouse. Great views of the bay from the screened in porch and second floor deck. Enjoyed watching the sun rise over the ocean and set over the bay each day. 4 minute walk to the ocean and miles of quiet beach to walk or run. The location of the townhouse makes for easy access to neighboring towns of Rehoboth, Bethany and Ocean City. Even though we stayed during the off season, we found many great restaurants open and shops to explore. As another reviewer stated, the owners were a pleasure to work with. Any questions or concerns were answered and addressed quickly and more than satisfactorily. We would also highly recommend renting with them.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

Great vacation home! The bay on one side provided spectacular sunset views from one of the decks or from the pool. Our dog loved the beach across the street from the house. Quiet, between Bethany and Ocean City, perfect location. The owners were a pleasure to work with, highly recommend!

Lovely home, beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

This rental was the setting of a perfect vacation. The condo is lovely, comfortable (a must for readers like us), and spacious. The views and sounds of the bay are magnificent any time of the day or evening. The Atlantic is just a short walk (although one has to cross a four-lane highway--but actually not as daunting as it might sound). The beach and sand-dunes are a big draw. We were so happy we could bring our dog. It was her first time at the ocean and she was a joy to watch as she tried to chase the waves! Most importantly, the owners couldn't have been nicer. Prompt and friendly responses to our queries. We look forward to renting this property again (and again).
