Just a great, fun house

We stayed in the Red house this summer and my kids, wife and I, and my parents loved it. We already reserved a week next year. It is a very short walk to the beach, to the restaurants, lots of fun things for the kids, and we went to OC boardwalk and had a blast.

wonderful week

Had a wonderful week with our small grandkids and parents. The pool was perfect for us to lounge in even when the air was cool-the heater really warmed it up. The kitchen was to die for-had everything we needed and the gas grille was close so my son and hubby could grille and connect with us when we cooked. the view from the grille was great, much better than the last rentals we have had - mostly just sides of buildings or the underside of the home. We didn't need it now but are thinking of a summer rental for our entire family of 17 and there are places to sleep for all. The colors are wonderful-I granddaughter called this the skiddle home.

Great layout & location for our family.

Our family gathered here - 8 adults, 4 teens. Best features: pool (used day & night), location (so close to the beach you don't mind if you forgot something, room (plenty of room for everyone). [note: we were here in 2008 - - can't get the calendar to go back that far). Parking. . . that's a premium in this area and all 3 cars could fit in the carport. The environment in Fenwick Island is definitely family-friendly. We drove up to Bethany beach one day and the kids wanted to get back to 'their beach'.

We rented this house last year and love it. The beach is so close to the house and not crowded like they are in Bethany.The house is immaculate and well stocked with all the amenities you could possibly need. The pool and hot tub were great after leaving the beach and for evening swimming. Everyone we met on Fenwick Island were so very friendly. this house has plenty of space so that your teens to go and have fun in private. The shopping and restaurants were great. Working on booking a week for this summer now,

Great Family Vacation

My extended family and i rented this house last year and are going back this summer. This was a GREAT HOUSE. We had from toddlers to teens and everyone had a place to go . The beach was right there. there were great family dinners and the kitchen and dining area had plenty of room. The house was immaculate and had all the amenities you could think of. We also took advantage of the shopping at the outlets and tax free shopping. The local restaurants were good also. Go to Smitty McGees for happy hour and entertainment. Cant wait to go this summer!!!!!!!!

This was a great house to spend time with family, The beach and ocean are right there. Nothing better than that. The house speaks for itself , it has everything and more, The hated pool and hot tub are great. The kitchen is spacious for preparing those family meals and just spending time with the family. We stayed the year before in the red house which is just as great. Also found Mary great to work and telling us about the area as well. the restaurants and tax free shopping are wonderful. We will definitely 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,

Fabulous Week

This was one of our best vacation ever. We spent the week with with our family , friends. The house was perfect , it was close to the beach that we enjoyed every day. The kids love the pool for swimming in the evening and the hot tub was great. Mary who we rented the house from was very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. The area was great for biking riding and taking long walks.The local restaurants were great, my favorite was Bethany blues. The house provided everything we needed to cook and enjoy just relaxing at the house after the beach. We are coming back this summer and cannot wait.

Girl Friends Getaway

This was a great weekend getaway for me and my girlfriends. The fact that this house was so close to the beach was wonderful. The heated hot tub was also great. Can't say a bad thing about this trip. The house had all the amenities you could possibly think of. The large kitchen was great for meeting, eating and relaxing together, The area was close to everything. We truly enjoyed ourselves. So looking forward to doing it again.

Beautiful House, Great Location. Clean, spacious

My husband and I rented this house for our family vacation with our two daughters, their husbands, our grandson and of course the dogs! The house was lovely and a very short walk to the beach. The pool was great as was the hot tub on a couple of the chillier nights. This property provides many amenities including 2 grills and 2 full size refrigerators as well as 2 beverage fridges. Having baby gear there for my 7 month old grandson was a big perk! My only complaint was that some of the mattresses desperately need replaced. My back has been in pretty bad shape since a few days into our stay and has still not recovered. My daughter's mattress was pretty stained and a little smelly. With new mattresses, this would have definitely been a 5 star rating! We all enjoyed our vacation at the Red House!

Great week at the Beach with Family

I am writing this as i booked my week for next year. Our Family had a great time at the beach this summer and the house was great. The house had all the amenities of home and there was plenty of room for everyone. We loved that we were so close to the beach, yet coming back from beach and being able to swim in the pool & use the hot tub was so much fun. It was truly a great relaxing vacation. We also enjoyed bike riding early in the morning and the shops in the evening.Looking forward to next summer. This house did not disappoint.
