About Clayton Hill

Our family lives in Wilmington, Delaware. We love cooking, golfing, tennis, running marathons, water sports, fine dining, shopping, and exploring new areas. We bought this house because it allows us to do all of these things and share our loves with our renters when we're not enjoying it's wonderful amenities ourselves.

Clayton Hill purchased this house in 2013

Why Clayton Hill chose Millsboro

We bought in the Peninsula after a number a visits to our friends, who live next door, and upon falling in love with the area and the Peninsula Community. Having grown up going to the Delaware beaches we had been looking for an opportunity like this one. It's ideal for a family with diverse interests because it has something for everyone. Kids always rank the wave pool the highest, while adults favor the world class golf, Lakeside Village, nearby beaches and outlet shopping. We specifically choose The Peninsula because the community has so many amenities that you never have to set foot outside its gates. Plus, it provides a very safe and protected environment for children. While you won't want to leave the resort, should you do so you have all that the Delaware beaches have to offer very nearby.

What makes this house unique

Our home is located on the 4th fairway with nothing but nature beyond. There's nowhere else we'd rather live within The Peninsula, nowhere with more protected and pristine views. It's also close to the bay, the nature trails and Lakeside Village, which makes it the ideal setting within the community.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Clay, thank you for sharing your home with my family. We have been trying to explore the community for years and this was our first opportunity to do so in the off season. What a beautiful home you have and you pre-stay service was second to none. We spent the week exploring the recreation center, and walking all of the nature paths throughout the 800 acre site. It was a first class experience and we will count on using your home again on our next visit which will no doubt be in the early spring. Thank you again for making us feel as if we had been friends for years. We look forward to renting from you again soon. All our best, The Potter Family

August 2015... Our wonderful week away

  • 5 of 5

This was a most fantastic week away from the busy of life. A retreat to a most beautiful place where our family was able to laugh, play and have a great time. Clay was so easy to work with, always available to answer my questions. The house was fantastic, very open, clean with its own charm. The moment we walked in my family was in love. We spent our week using the bikes provided to explore the Penninsula community and all it has to offer. Great views from all areas, our favorite was the beach and fishing pier, walking trails were easy to navigate and the lakeside center was delightful. The outdoor wave pool was a favorite of my 5&8 yr olds and the outdoor 16 yr and older pool was a favorite of my 18 yr old daughter and her boyfriend. I loved it all from the gym, pools, abailibilty to rent kayaks and all the staff it was Truely a week away on vacation. Thank you so very much we will return for sure!!!

Can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

This house and community is the best get away/vacation for all ages. The house is beautiful and clean including all the amenities you would need. The owner Clay was most accomodating with everything. We walked for a delicious breakfast at the clubhouse via the walking trail right from our front door. And in the evenings it was relaxing taking a family bike ride with the coaster bikes from the garage. (so nice we didn't have to haul our bikes from home). The kids didn't want to leave once to go into Rehoboth, they were perfectly content with all of the activities and beautiful home. My family can't wait to come back!

Awesome start to out vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautifully decorated, clean, and so welcoming. We have 4 sons from the ages of 6-12. There was so much to do! We enjoyed biking the neighborhood, fishing, going to the fantastic pool, and just sitting back and playing games, we also drove into Rehoboth several times. It was an easy 20 minute drive! The owner, Clay was a pleasure to work with and always available. We truly had such a relaxing time and look forward to renting again. Thanks!

FANTASTIC HOUSE!!!!!! I cannot speak more highly of this rental property. My family and our family friends rented this beautiful home for the week in early August. We were beyond impressed and delighted with it. The house is extremely well maintained and clean and its decor makes you feel as if you are living in a "Pottery Barn Magazine". The home is exactly what is depicted in the pictures, huge, clean and brand new.... Besides the house being so wonderful, dealing with Clay ( the owner) was a complete pleasure and he couldn't have made out stay easier. The Peninsula itself had all the amenities of a full service resort with a wave pool and man-made beach that kept our children occupied for hours on end. It had it all, from a full service restaurant/bar, tennis courts, game room to an adult infinity pool. This house offers the best of both worlds, after a day at the beach, it was so nice to return to the pool area and relax with a drink by the wave pool. I cannot say enough about the wonderful experience we had at this rental. We are DEFINITELY planning to vacation there again next summer.
