  • We enjoyed being together as a family. We went to the beach every day. We first came to Fenwick Island in 1979, and we came back in 2010 with our fourth generation! Our children wanted their children to have the same great memories of the shore. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. We loved being able to bring our puppies. — The O Family - July 17, 2010

  • Another visit to your house and another wonderful vacation! We had a great time shopping at Reboboh and Bethany, enjoyed the beautiful days on the beach, and we went fishing every morning and evening. It was another great year for fishing off the beach at the house! We caught over seven fish! Thanks for giving us such a nice home away from home - even our dogs felt at home! — The N&B Families - June 26, 2010
  • Another great vacation! We love all the improvements you've made. The new stove was perfect for our needs. By day we lounged on the beach and by evening, we went to dinner at placed like Nantuckets, Mancinis, and Harpoon Hanna's. We also enjoyed mini golfing at Down Under and Viking. Visiting Seaside Country Store is a must -they have the BEST fudge and taffy on the Eastern Shore. We look forward to visiting you again next year! — The S Family - August 22, 2009

  • We needed a rejuvenating vacation and we got it! The weather, beach, and pool were perfect. We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen. A group of us went fishing off the beach and one of our group members caught at 30 lb cone nose ray, along with a couple butterfly rays (about 100 lbs!) and many others. We loved all the improvements you've made. The dogs had a great time too! We're already planning our visit next year.
  • Great pet friendly home! We enjoyed long walks on the beach with our dog and watching the dolphins swimming in the ocean! The balcony has a beautiful view. Thank you for sharing your home with us! If you are looking for seafood to bring back to the house, you must go to Steamer's in Bethany. — The X Family - June 27, 2009
