The Fenwick guarded beach is a two-minute walk from our house (without having to cross Coastal Highway). It is amazingly less crowded and quiet compared to the beaches in Ocean City, Bethany Beach and Rehoboth - typically Fenwick's beach has 70% less people than those beaches. It will remind you of your own private beach.

Located oceanside in the heart of Fenwick Island just a short stroll to the beach, restaurants, mini golf, go-carts and water slides. Perfect for multiple families traveling together, large family gatherings, reunions and corporate retreats. Island Time also has free lightning fast 150 Mbps wi-fi for our guests.

For the chefs, Island Time features 3 fully equipped kitchens with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and gas cooktops. Most places on the Eastern shore have electric cooktops. We also have a large electric griddle for making perfect pancakes for your group, a waffle iron for our guests to enjoy, a 6 quart crockpot and a brand new, large 6 burner gas grill outside.

Easy walking distance to Ropewalk Restaurant, Mancini's Brick Oven Pizza and Nantucket's to name a few. Also, our favorite Ocean City restaurant, Liquid Assets, is opening a new location in Fenwick Island this spring a few blocks from our place called Our Harvest!

In addition, Island Time is only 18 miles to the Tanger Outlets in Rehoboth Beach. The Tanger Outlets feature over 140 stores including Under Armour, Tommy Bahama, Lululemon, Nike & Banana Republic as well as tax-free Delaware shopping to make a great deal even better. It's a fun way to spend a day if the weather isn't cooperating. There is also the Sun & Surf Cinema in Ocean City which features 8 theaters just a 1 mile drive (or walk) from our place.

Bedding is as follows: 3 kings, 4 queens, 4 twins and 4 sets of built-in twin bunks. EZ Beach rentals will deliver linens to our place for your stay.

Two companies in the Fenwick area, Delmarva Sport Adventures and Coastal Kayak, offer Eco kayak tours as well as lessons to surf the waves in a kayak.

A 20 minute ride from our home takes you to Rehoboth Beach. The town is much larger than Bethany and Fenwick and boasts many shopping and dining options, a three mile boardwalk and an amusement park. There are also fabulous sales tax-free outlet shopping at 140 Outlet stores.

In minutes you can get to Ocean City with a long boardwalk with a large amusement park (including a fun roller coaster) and many more restaurants, bars and shops.

A 10 minute ride takes you to the Freeman stage for top talent entertainment. A walk across the street takes you to the DiscoverSea Shipwreck Museum which houses artifacts from sunken ships in the area. If you are lucky, they will bring out a 50 pound gold "necklace" found in a sunken Spanish ship.

You can also visit Lewes, smaller than Rehoboth but very quaint.

Lastly, Jolly Roger Amusement park on 30th Street (7 miles from our place) in Ocean City has a huge water park with tons of water slides, wave pools and even a water roller coaster that kids will love.

You can take a fishing charter out at the Indian River marina for a half or full day. And a 5-minute ride takes you across the bay where you can rent a boat or jet skis.

There are numerous world-class golf courses within a 5-30 minute drive from our place. Some are Bayside, Baywood Greens, Bear Trap Dunes, Lighthouse Sound, Rum Pointe (our personal favorite), War Admiral & Man O'War at GlenRiddle, Cripple Creek Golf, CC Dagsboro, Kings Creek, Old Landing Golf Course Rehoboth Beach and Rehoboth CC.

Absolutely beautiful and perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle and enjoy some special family time together!

About The Area

We recently purchased Island Time because there are so few 10+ bedroom places for rent on the Eastern Shore especially ones that are oceanside. Most of the larger rental homes are located inland a few miles from the beach so you must drive to get to the beach. Why drive to the beach when you can walk?

We love this house because it is a well built, nicely maintained, clean house that is just a short stroll to a beautiful private beach. Once you park your car you can literally walk everywhere.

Fenwick Island is the best beach/town on the Eastern Shore of Delaware or Maryland.  It is much less crowded & less developed than Bethany, Rehoboth or Ocean City and a very quaint beach town similar to the Outer Banks.

House Rules

Check-in at 3 PM and Check-out by 10 AM in the summer weeks.  We sometimes have more flexibility with this in the off-season.  

No smoking inside our house please.

No pets allowed.


It's an ideal home for family reunions, multiple families traveling together, golf groups, weddings and corporate retreats.

Fantastic Place!

My friends and I loved this place. The 2nd floor living room, dining room and large kitchen helped create a social functioning gathering place. The space was huge. Nice to have elevator, showers to support handicapped people, nice size washers/dryers, and very comfortable rooms. Great location. Special touches such as a porch next to dining room, area for work space, wine refrigerator, and jacuzzi were great! The owners were very responsive and had a very informative description of expectations in using the property. Highly recommend the property. Everyone was thrilled with and made our retreat quite special. Would highly recommend renting the linen/towels so one does not have to take up suitcase space as well as deal with wet towels.

Perfect for the Extended Family Gathering

Our group of 26 had a fantastic time on Fenwick Island! The property was perfect for what we needed. There was a large space for when everyone wanted to be together and plenty of space to get away from the group for some quiet time. Having access to 3 kitchens was a lifesaver as we had all of our meals at home. There was enough space to store everything and 3 dishwashers made for easy clean up. We only used the elevator upon arrival and departure to move our luggage but it was nice to not have to carry it all up the stairs. The location made access to the beach a snap. Two quick blocks and you are there. The beach patrol even offers assistance via a 4 wheeler for anyone in the group who may need a little help walking to the beach. Just call their online number or go ask a lifeguard and they will pick up at the beach access road and drive you to your location on the beach. Let the lifeguard know when you want to leave and they will come get you and bring you back. Such a thoughtful service for anyone who has mobility issues! Back to the house- the large griddle made pancake breakfast easy, there are many beach chairs, umbrellas and a beach buggy available to borrow and also games to use. The “ find it” game was used by every person on the trip-it took 3 days to find the penny but we finally did! Communication with Mike and Michelle was quick and easy. I highly recommend their beautiful home for anyone looking for a place to have a large group!

Wonderful House for Family Gathering

Our family had a wonderful time at this house. The house is large, well equipped, clean, well decorated and very comfortable. We were there in cold weather and loved having the fireplaces as we watched Sunday football on the large screen televisions. We spent a lot of time cooking large family dinners and having three kitchens was an awesome way to make sure our early Thanksgiving dinner came together perfectly. The owners are very responsive and kind. The location is awesome and we loved taking long walks through the Delaware neighborhoods. The elevator in the house was great for our 80+ year old parents so they didn’t have to negotiate the stairs. There is plenty of parking. We really just loved everything about our stay at this home and can’t wait to come back again soon. Great place to build wonderful memories!

Perfection! A Must Stay!

We had 30 women from 3 different boutique gyms for a women’s retreat and photo shoot. This place couldn’t have been any more perfect! Not only is it the most gorgeous home we’ve ever stayed in but it has EVERYTHING! Michelle and Mike were so easy to work with too! The hot tub was AMAZING and every balcony was used! The group went to Seacrets the last night, ordered late night pizza and we all gathered in the huge living room singing and dancing. You should’ve seen the set up we had for hair and makeup in that big space too - this weekend truly changed our lives! Thank you so much for putting so much detail and time into your beautiful home - love, the Badass ladies of Hiit it with Britt, fitbody by Krista and A&D Fitness.

Wonderful Property Meets All Expectations

Michael and Michelle were very attentive, available and gracious. They were a pleasure to work with and we had not one problem in that respect. The property was exactly as described (beautiful, clean, well equipped, wonderful location, spacious) and actually exceeded any expectations I had formed prior to our arrival. The large common area was a great place for us all to assemble in the evening, whether we were involved in cooking, playing games, watching the Olympics, or just relaxing. The bedrooms are roomy and quiet and our guests who wanted to sleep late were not in the least disturbed by what was happening in the common area. We had small children with us also, so the parents were able to remove them from the commotion. We were visiting over a long weekend in February for a family/friend celebration and we did all of our own cooking. There are 3 fully equipped kitchens which allowed us to use multiple ovens for large meal preparations. This also allowed for adequate storage of all drinks as well as our food (3 full refrigerators). I think our biggest problem was trying to make sure all of the pots, pans, and dishes found their way back into the correct kitchen! We were very close to the beach (it was very quiet this time of year and a lovely place to walk!) and several people enjoyed the immense hot tub. I would highly recommend this property to anyone.

The Perfect House for a Large Family Gathering

My extended family has rented houses in the Bethany/Fenwick area over the holiday break for more than ten years--this house was the best! We especially enjoyed the great room that allows some people to be on the sofa visiting or watching tv, others at the large table snacking or playing games, and others in the kitchen preparing meals for our family of 18 -- yet all together! Since we have a large group and prefer to cook dinner each night, having three full kitchens in the house was so helpful. My 16-month old grandson used a room tucked away in one of the suites (equipped with a pack n play) that allowed him to nap away from any noise. The evevator was key for my 80-year old parents. The house is clean and beautifully furnished--paint colors are spectacular! Plenty of things to do nearby, even in December. Michelle and Mike were 100 percent responsive and obviously care about guests enjoying their stay. You won't go wrong with this rental.

A Beautiful & Restful Home Away from Home

This lovely home is exactly as described on the listing. It is beautifully decorated and has everything you could want in a vacation home. The three separate living quarters were great for privacy yet doors can be left open to make everyone feel included. It was a bonus that all 11 of us had our own bedroom! We had excellent weather and spent a lot of time on the screened in porch which was delightful! The owners could not have been more helpful and easy to work with. They answered every email within ten minutes. They are very accommodating and really want their guests to have a great experience. The information they provide before you arrive is very thorough and helps make your experience so enjoyable. The location of the home is near lots of restaurants, amusements, and entertainment. We literally ate our way through the shore! This is the perfect home for large groups and I would recommend it to anyone!
