We are a family of three. Kim quit her day job to manage the four properties we have spread around the U.S. (a great large family home in Washington, DC area; an amazing beach retreat in Naples, FL area; a cute beach cottage on a private bayfront golf course near Rehoboth Beach; and finally a large condo in Park City, UT). Chris is an IT Security Analyst that works from home. Finally Lily is our 6 year old that enjoys all the homes we have so they are all very kid friendly. We really enjoy sharing our vacation rentals and love meeting such great people.
Kim Albee purchased this villa in 2011
The home is located in the Veranda near the Lakeside Village where all of the amenities are located - indoor/outdoor pool, wave pool, restaurant, fitness center, spa, tennis, and golf. The Peninsula at the Indian River Bay is the perfect vacation destination offering the finest resort amenities at Rehoboth Beach starting with the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course,voted number one in Delaware. The Peninsula offers eight tennis courts, three swimming pools (including an indoor pool, hot tubs, and a lagoon sandy beach wave pool which is always a big hit with the kids), a state-of-the-art fitness center, sauna, spa services, and the Terrace Grille for on-site indoor or outdoor dining. Recently opened is a beautiful new Nature Center overlooking Lingo Creek; enjoy fishing, bird watching or kayaking from this facility and the coastal region’s rich ecology.
You can also participate in a full slate of club events and activities. This summer, the calendar is filled with fun things to do, including camps for the kids and plenty for grown-ups, too – golf clinics & tournaments, yoga, cooking classes, massage, beer tastings and more. Peaceful ponds, creeks and wetlands, are just some of nature's most enjoyable features that have been preserved. The Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course wraps around creeks, ponds, lakes and the Bay. For quieter days away from the crowds at Rehoboth Beach, enjoy a swim at the onsite bay beach or fishing from the piers.
This wonderful bayside community is located only a short drive from Rehoboth, Bethany, Dewey and Ocean City. We are only 2-1/2 hours from the Virginia, DC/MD, NJ and Philadelphia areas.

Kim and Chris,
We totally enjoyed staying at your beautiful home. It was so comfortable and inviting. The location was perfect. We will definitely keep it in mind for future trips.
We had a wonderful time at the house and at the pool. Everything is beautiful ! The house is just perfect, very well equip and confortable. We just love it, we recommend it for sure
This is the only way to go! We have rented 6 times in the Peninsula and are extremely happy with our recent experience. The home is fantastic and has everything you will ever need. We made some great memories by cooking meals at home and playing games at night with the family. We would go to a beach, Lewis or Rehobeth, one day then stay at the pool the next day. The house is clean and just as they show online. Thank you for making our vacation experience so wonderful! We will be back!
I really can't say enough about this property and the owners!!!! We love this house, from the convenience to all the beaches, shopping and restaurants to the amazing wave pool (my kids favorite) and quiet fishing pond. This house is perfect! It has everything you need for your vacation/getaway. The owners are so easy to work with! As I am writing this I am already wanting to go back :(
From the time drive into the Peninsula and see how the community has been planned and built you realize that this is going to be something special. The community itself has everything you would want on a vacation. The facilities are top notch. Golf, Pools, Beaches, Tennis, Spa, Health Club. This place is the definition of resort living. The people that work there are all very helpful and friendly. Our family has stayed at many homes using Home Away. Most of them are good but most are always missing something. That was not the case in this home. You notice it as soon as you walk in. No bare walls. The home is beautifully decorated. You immediately feel at home. This home has everything and I mean everything you would need for a fun and relaxing family vacation. Our children especially enjoyed riding the bicycles around town and playing with all of the toys in the house. The home owners are great. Kim even provided us with some useful tips on what to do around the neighborhood. Although the weather didn't cooperate our family had a great time. We will definitely rent here again!
My friends and I stayed at this property for only one weekend, and the minute we stepped inside the house we regretted not making our stay longer! The neighborhood was quiet and serene, the people were friendly, and we were so close to the beach. The house itself was absolutely beautiful. Everyone slept comfortably, there was a grill so we could have a cook out, the kitchen was stocked with essentials, and the patio made the perfect place to lounge outside all day. Kim was a joy to work with, extremely responsive and accommodating, and made sure we had everything we needed when we got there. I have every intention of returning next summer and cannot WAIT to again feel as relaxed as I did that weekend! A million star rating!
