|Minimum Stay||2 - 7 nights|
This three bedroom, multi-family townhouse (sleeps 11) sits right on the water and affords comfortable vacation living with all of the amenities you need -- and then some. Enjoy the sunset from the upstairs deck or main level Florida Room; get out onto the bay and into the marsh on any of the four kayaks (2 double, 2 single) that come with the rental; ride bikes to the nearby pool, gym, or tennis courts that are all part of the Bayville Shores Community; or just hang out with a good book on a comfortable chair and act like you're on vacation. The beach is only a short drive away (about 10 minutes to the State Park) and there is lots to do off the sand, too. The well-equipped kitchen and generous table space make meal times fun and relaxed on those nights that you choose to eat in and there are plenty of restaurants just minutes away if you want to treat yourself. Enjoy the plentiful wildlife (herons, egrets, bald eagles) and the peaceful setting away from the hustle and bustle of the Coastal Highway -- but convenient to whatever you may need (boardwalks, beaches, grocery stores, entertainment venues) to make your vacation more enjoyable.
“Simplify” is a magnificent vacation home. For those who love unspoiled nature but also want to spend time at beach doing all the beachy boardwalk type things, it offers the perfect base for doing both.
We spent a long weekend at the house, launching a kayak every day from the back yard for excursions across the Little Assawoman Bay and up Dirickson Creek. There we saw many blue herons, egrets, ducks, gulls, osprey, a kingfisher, red-winged blackbirds and, yes, one bald eagle. On the edge of the water we spotted crabs and frogs. One grasshopper-sized frog jumped into the kayak, then out.
The house provides an open-air, third-floor balcony overlooking the tidal marshes and bay, and from there we spent wonderful hours, reading and watching egrets and herons stalk their prey. On the second floor, there is an enclosed Florida room, also overlooking the bay, that would offer similar views with shelter from the heat in mid-summer.
The house itself is smartly designed and furnished. The kitchen, Florida room and bathrooms are tiled, the bedrooms carpeted, the dining room polished wood. The furniture is contemporary beach style, not the 70’s leftovers so many families stuff into their beach houses. This furniture appears nearly new and well cared for.
We liked the small, thoughtful touches around the house. On the third-floor balcony, for instance, the resin Adirondack chairs sit high, elevating your line of sight over the porch rail, for an unobstructed view. All the light switches are labeled, so you won’t fumble around hitting a hall light when you want a front door light. The refrigerator is humongous. TVs in every bedroom and broad DVD collection are over the top, and the library of paperbacks more than ample.
The community in which this townhouse sits is upscale, with manicured lawns and flower beds, fountains, a large, clean pool, and well-equipped fitness center. While the house offers privacy, all the activities and facilities associated with a beach are nearby. In September, when we visited, it was a seven-minute drive to the grocery; ten minutes to seafood restaurant row; 14 minutes to miniature golf courses and beach shops. We got to Rehobeth in 40 minutes for sensational dining.
Finally, Holly and Ron are gracious owners. They patiently and promptly answered questions and provided advice. They made sure our experience at their home was everything they promised. We loved everything about this house, and we'll be back.
We had a wonderful week at this house!! The breathtaking water views from the living area are just beautiful. Kayaks, bikes, beach toys are provided and this very comfortable and well laid out home made this such an enjoyable week. A short ride to restaurants, retail shops and the beach made for a fantastic time. Community pool and fitness center were added bonuses!
What a relaxing and enjoyable week! The view is so peaceful. The kayaking was a blast, just dropping in the bay right behind the condo. The kids biked around the development all week long and my son I and both experienced a tandem bike for the 1st time. There are several ponds in the development stocked with fish. And the pool was never too crowded. The Foster's beach home was perfect for our 3 generations. Everything is there for all of your needs and the location is so quiet! Our family would happily return!
Our family had an absolute wonderful stay in Fenwick Island. We used to visit the Island every other year as a family growing up as children and did allot of research when selecting a condo for our recent stay. And we could not have made a better choice. This rental was in a superb location, close enough to town but far enough away that we could focus on whats most important, each other. The rental came equipped with anything that we could possibly need during our stay...bikes, kayaks, sports equipment etc... which saved us a bundle on what would have been additional rental fees during our stay.
