About Bill Parnella

We have vacationed at the Delaware/Maryland beaches for over 20 years and are finally able to purchase a home there. We are hoping to share our home with other families who will care for it as they would their own, and who will make lasting fond memories for years to come, just as we have.

Bill Parnella purchased this villa in 2014

Why Bill Parnella chose Delaware

The Bay Forest community has so much to offer you could literally spend your entire vacation here without ever venturing outside of the neighborhood. The people are welcoming and friendly and the amenities are first rate. Bethany Beach has always been our favorite local beach, in the middle of all the action, yet with a quaint charm and a family atmosphere.

What makes this villa unique

We were immediately impressed with the quality construction of the homes in Bay Forest, the special features like the arched entryways, and the neighborly feel with the nearby fire pit for family gatherings. Our private wooded back yard and the fountain view from the front made this home the ideal location for our vacation retreat.

Another perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this property and everything was just as perfect as the first time we stayed last year! The home had everything we needed for a great vacation! The home was very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed all of the amenities as well. The kids especially loved the pool and playground! There are a lot of great restaurants within driving distance. We also were close enough to Rehobeth to enjoy the boardwalk. Thank you again to Bill and Nancy for letting us stay in your home- we can't wait to come back!

Amazing vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

So much to do at the resort and the surrounding beach towns. Bethany Beach is a short drive away or take the free shuttle (parking was not a problem before 10:00). As far as the resort, the pool opens at 11:00 and is great for both kids and adults as there are separate sections if wanted. The villa us spacious and everyone had their own bathroom which was great before going out to dinner. I highly recommend Dining in Rehoboth on either Baltimore or Wilmington Avenues or in Bethany there are several great spots such as Difebo's or Off the Hook.

We totally fell in love with this villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation at your beautiful home in July. We have already booked our stay for next year. This is a great resort with many amenities. We loved the pool, the gym and the fire pit. The villa was so beautiful and it was kid friendly. The owners were great, the neighbors were nice, the kids loved all the frogs, and we were so happy to have found this place. Thank you for sharing it.

Great Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 (with children and grandchildren) were very comfortable staying at this beautiful villa. There was plenty of room, lots of movies, books and games and a beautiful pool area to enjoy. Being close to the shuttle stop to the beach, and the firepit were also a plus!

For a Great Place to Visit and Re-Visit

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a wonderful time at this villa and would stay here again, and would recommend the villa to others. We were close to Bethany Beach but the pool was closer and just as nice. Other fun amenities, including the bar and grill, tennis courts, and exercise room, were within walking distance from the home, and grocery stores and other shops were not far away. The owners have a fantastic place in a quiet neighborhood; the home is well-appointed, the décor is beautiful with many small touches, and there was plenty of room for the eight of us. The owners responded to all our questions and concerns and were available during our stay if we had any additional concerns.

If you are looking for a comfortable, beautiful place that has all the amenities of home, and that is conveniently located near the beach, grocery stores, and quaint shops, then this is the place for you.

Located just minutes from the beach, you are in the center of all that Delaware and Maryland beaches have to offer. Enjoy bargain shopping at the Rehoboth Outlets, antique hunting in the quaint town of Bethany, miniature golf in Fenwick Island, or the nightlife of Ocean City followed by a stroll on one of the many boardwalks. Or if you prefer nature, visit the wild ponies on Assateague Island or enjoy bird watching at Delaware Seashore State Park. You are surrounded by water whether it be the crash of the waves oceanside, or the multitude of waterways bayside. Restaurants and entertainment are available day and night!
