Best of Everything in Ocean City, MD

FriesNot sure I always agree with this list – Best of Ocean City – but it’s a great start if you’re visiting us and want to find what other folks are enjoying. While you’re at it, be sure to vote if you have been to the area and have favorites of your own. Better yet…leave us a comment here on the blog and we’ll share them with our visitors. Can you guess what my photo represents? Thrasher’s Fries are a perennial favorite so no voting required there!

Be sure to visit our Facebook page at for an article today on a mosquito repellent. In a day when the zika virus is on everyone’s mind, you might find this interesting.

If you haven’t visited yet, I hope you will take a moment to stop by our website and refer folks who want to visit the Fenwick area. This is a free vacation rental referral with NO Homeaway or VRBO service fees! Stop by soon.

New Website News!

We are back in business with a new website! Well not quite, literally, because we have never been out of business considering we have been providing vacation rentals for 14 years and 15 seasons. However, the website is another story…years ago we had a very basic website where Fran accidentally deleted all the content so I decided to forgo starting over and just continued with my ads at VRBO & Homeaway, Facebook & 2 blogs. Move forward to 2016, and we are back with our website again. Be sure to take at look

Delaware State Park Passes

Renters, it is time to make your reservation for your summer vacation!  Be sure to call me ASAP at 302-322-2681 to reserve your week free of service charges if you call me direct yourself.

Make your next stop to the Delaware State Park website to purchase your surf fishing permits and annual passes for State parks.  Be sure to get grandma or grandpa (aged 62 or older) to do the pass buying if they’re coming with you to the beach because they get a awesome discount.  Passes work by the car for as many people you can stuff in that old VW…so long as there are 16 or fewer. (The State considers more that 17 people at the higher daily bus rate.)  Click here for a complete listing of park passes to order by mail.

Daily rates are listed currently at $5/DE resident, $10/Non-resident.

Delaware State Parks along the coast cannot be beat!  Our family fave is the Fenwick Island State Park on Route 1 north of the town of Fenwick, considered by many to be the finest beach in Delaware!  This beach is also handicap accessible. A complete listing of parks and beaches throughout the State can be found at DE State Parks.

Beach Grass Replenishment

I hope readers have a chance to join the State of Delaware in their search for volunteers to plant much needed beach grass. You can read more about at the News Journal with this link , or they say going to is the best way to sign up.

Last year over 100,000 were planted by over 1,000 volunteers on a 3 miles stretch of beach which included some wonderful students from Caravel Academy! Way to go students, so happy hear about this.

Vacation Rental Alternatives

In my quest to fix the gap in my advertising I came across this article with suggested sites for free vacation rental referrals.  So far, I have added my property to one and plan to check out others.  If you’re lost, not wanting to pay $$hundreds to find a vacation rental this summer and you didn’t like my place check out this article for links to free listings .

Holy Cow Batman… is Charging Big Fees to Renters

Dear Renters,
In December 2016 Homeaway was acquired by Expedia. One month after the acquisition, Homeaway began imposing fees to individuals such as yourself who want info and wish to rent our property. In an effort to stay in touch with our 16 seasons-long list of past renters and potential new one’s who cannot afford the $100+ fees for a summer week rental, I will attempt to keep my blog more up-to-date. I hope to ensure your ability to find us without paying fees to any of the Expedia-owned sites such as VRBO and Homeaway.

We are still loving Bayville Shores and continue to make improvements each off-season in hopes you want to visit again soon. Please feel free to contact me for rental information with the form below:
