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.

Enjoyable three days
We traveled to Delaware for my mothers 94th birthday and had a wonderful time. The house was plenty large for the birthday party of 10 people-plenty of plates and utensils. First floor is an open floor plan. I stayed in the first floor bedroom and the heat pump or furnace ran almost constantly and was somewhat annoying. The golf course was amazing! The nature amazing too-bald eagles, herons, egrets, songbirds, deer and lots of trails for evening walks.
Heating system is inadequate for the size of the house.
Great summer retreat for families
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.
Very nice and spacious house and community
The house was nice and spacious with everything you need for a quiet vacation. The peninsula community is well maintained and the amenities are great.
Modern and clean with plenty of space Would stay here again!
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.
