About Holly and Don Grist

We are small business owners from Wilmington Delaware that don't get to travel much. So we decided to build a place that we could escape to on the weekends, that felt like a resort. The beautiful, serene nature trails and fun, kid focused neighborhood provides our children with a childhood full of great memories. The problem is, we are often too busy and are not available to enjoy our home away from home. We sincerely hope you and your family/friends can use our lovely getaway as the perfect backdrop for your own memories!

Cheers!

Holly and Don Grist purchased this villa in 2012

Why Holly and Don Grist chose Millsboro

Fully stocked home ready for great memories! Lots of extra parking, great views from the front porch, and close to the fresh water pond with a fishing pier stocked with bass. The wave pool and restaurant is just a quick bike ride away. When we drove through the gates we both knew that this was the place. By all measures, the Peninsula is a top notch resort community with amenities galore. Our lot has a lovely grassy area on the side, perfect for kids to play in as well as a large sidewalk area for kids riding bikes. We love to sit on our front porch and watch our kids play.

What makes this villa unique

We picked this floor plan because it is great for entertaining. The living room and dining room and kitchen are all in full view, which puts all of your guest in the mix! There is lots of lush green grass when you step out the front door which is suitable for numerous activities. Wide and smooth sidewalks frame the large open space.This allows young kids to ride bikes without the fear of going in the street! Our home is perfectly situated to allow you to observe and enjoy watching the ones while you relax with a cold beverage from the comfort of the front porch.

Spacious home in wonderful Peninsula resort community close to Rehobeth Beach. Perfect spot for young families with ample activities for children and adults alike. Would definitely return for another summer! Thanks again to Grist family for sharing their amazing home.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Had a great 3 day stay with our extended family consisting of 6 adults and 4 kids under 5 years old. House was exactly as described, clean and well maintained. The owners communicated well through the rental process and we had a very nice overall experience.

One of the Best

  • 5 of 5

The house is clean and just as they show online. The

home has everything you will ever need. We made some great memories by cooking out on the patio and planning games most nights. We would go to a beach, Lewis or Rehobeth, one day then stay at the pool the next. Thank you for making our vacation experience so wonderful! We will be back! This is the only way to go!

Spacious house and a great resort

  • 5 of 5

This is a relatively new house, Holly is great to deal with and very responsiveness. The house is very nice, some of the carpets are marked (I am guessing by inconsiderate guests) but the house is very clean with all the things you can need. The pool area (which you pay for separately) is beautiful. You have to be over 16 to use (and be around) the adult pool. There is a nice pool restaurant, a bit pricey but great in the evenings. The golf course looks lovely although I didn't play. Definitely recommend although if I would give one tip to Holly (from someone who rents a lot of holiday homes) have basic information in a folder for the guests.
