About Cheryl and Jim Whalen

Jim grew up in Delaware and I'm from New Jersey. We currently live in PA with our 2 active boys. We took the plunge to invest in this property because it's a fantastic location, has plenty of amenities and lots of diverse activities (nature hikes, fishing, playing at the beach, tennis, pool, shopping, golf, etc.). For our family, we knew that it would be the perfect get away

from our busy life at home. Please note that I am (Cheryl Whalen) a Realtor in the state of Pennsylvania but I'm not licensed in the state do Delaware and am renting this property on my own.

Cheryl and Jim Whalen purchased this condo in 2013

Why Cheryl and Jim Whalen chose Historic District

We have always loved spending quality time as a family at the beach. Jim grew up vacationing each year at the Delaware beaches. We were first introduced to the Villages at Five Points by our good friends who bought one of the single family homes. We were impressed with the community and how much it has to offer, 2 pools, tennis courts, a clubhouse, restaurants, etc. as well as a friendly, relaxing neighborhood.

When we had an opportunity to invest in a property, we looked at other condominiums but kept coming back to the Villages at Five Points, where we felt at home. Before making the investment, we spent some long weekends in the area and loved the diversity it had to offer. We could visit historic downtown Lewes, take a nature hike at Cape Henelopen State Park, go to Dewey Beach or visit the Rehoboth boardwalk at night with the kids. This year we went down in December and saw the Lewes Christmas parade and visited Santa Claus on the boardwalk. The area has so much to offer, festivals, movies on the beach, Seawitch at Halloween, etc. One of the main conveniences is that our condo is located East of Rt. 1, which is convenient because you don't have to get on the main highway to get to downtown Lewes, the Cape May - Lewes Ferry or Cape Henelopen unless you want to visit other beaches or the Rehoboth boardwalk. Lewes is a pretty, historic town with restaurants, fishing and museums. The people from Lewes are always friendly and make you feel welcome. This property is truly special because it offers so many activities yet it's very peaceful and not overcrowded.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is quiet since it's located on the top floor; it offers a beautiful view of the pond from our screened in porch. We supply all the comforts of home: utensils, linens, towels, beach chairs, coffee pot, toaster, blender, etc. Our guests can take advantage of our full kitchen for meals or venture out to plenty of great restaurants in the area. Our unit is freshly painted and

new ceiling fans have been placed in the bedrooms as well as

the den. We just recently purchased a new pull-out sofa with an upgraded mattress and a pull-out twin chair, so we can sleep 7. We take pride in our condo and keep it clean and make our guests feel as comfortable as possible. Personal touches have been added such as some board games, books and movies for our guests' convenience. The master bedroom and den both have DVD/VCRs and we also provide movies. We hope you visit us and take the long, relaxing vacation that you deserve and have been looking forward to all winter. You won't be disappointed!

Awesome condo near the beach

  • 5 of 5

This condo was great!

The condo itself is very nice - plenty of space, comfortable furniture, and that screened in porch facing the pond is fantastic.

The location is very convenient - the community pool is a few blocks away, and there's a playground in between the condo and the pool. There are several restaurants, a decent supermarket, and a decent beer/wine store within a 5-10 minute walk. Lewes beach is about a 10 minute drive, and Rehoboth beach is a 20-30 minute drive.

All in all we had a fantastic time staying here.

Owner's Response: Hi Gabriel, We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay in Lewes. One of the reasons we bought the condo is because of the family friendly environment and the close proximity to the Lewes Bay, Cape Henelopen State Beach as well as Rehoboth Beach. From our condo you can be at the beach in as little as 10 to 15 minutes. Gabriel, we appreciate the review and hope you and your family keep our condo in mind for another visit. Cheryl and Jim Whalen

The Villages at Five Points is centrally located with historic downtown Lewes just about 1 mile down the road. You will appreciate the convenience of two nearby beaches - Cape Henelopen State Park and the Lewes public beach. Cape Henelopen offers hiking, biking, paved trails and nature trails in addition to 6 miles of beach. You can also take advantage of nearby Rehoboth Beach and Dewey Beach, just about 6 miles away in addition to the excitement of the boardwalk with shops, restaurants and rides for the kids. If you prefer to get wet in a pool, head to Jungle Jim's Safari Water Park about 2 miles away on Rt. 1. If you need a break from the sun, you can spend a day shopping at Delaware's tax-free outlets or take in a movie at the Midway theater.
