Thanks again to all our guests who helped us to sell out for the 13th season in a row in 2017 (and welcome back to many of you who have already reserved to return this year) and to all our guests who continue to give us 5 start reviews.

Welcome to 'The Boat House', our 5 bedroom, 3.5 bath 2-story Villa in the quiet resort of Eagles Landing with 3 pools and tennis and acres of green space, yet we are still less than 1 mile to the beach, ocean, real wooden boardwalk, world class restaurants and tax free shopping! This home is one of the few end units which allows in plenty of natural light and gives you the privacy of not sharing a sidewalk with the neighbors. Our charming 2,400 foot, two-story villa is spacious, bright and sunny and has 4 reserved parking spaces in front of the house.

Our beautifully decorated 2-story Villa is large and sunny, with a nautical theme. We feature 2 master suites; for extra privacy, one suite is downstairs (no stairs) and one up. Each master suite has a large bedroom (with a queen-sized beds), dresser, giant walk-in closets plus bright clean private baths with showers. Upstairs has 3 more bedrooms in addition to the upstairs master suite, one bedroom has a queen and a twin, one has 2 twins & the third a queen bed. All have fresh pillow top mattresses. All bedrooms have cable TV and wi-fi internet and most have smart TVs or flat screens. There is also a full bath with tub in the upstairs hall bathroom. An extra half-bath and laundry room complete the kitchen with large pantry area. While there is 1 step in our outside walkway, once you are inside, there are none on our first floor bedroom and living area.. (Note: While we leave pillows, mattress pads and comforters for each bed, our cleaning crew does not have time to do linens, so we do NOT provide sheets and towels etc.) We have parking for 4 cars reserved in front of house--sorry no RV or boat parking permitted.

What's cooking?: Our kitchen is fully equipped right down to the corkscrew and wineglasses! It is large with a walk-in pantry, plenty of counter space, a new side by side refrigerator (with filtered water and ice maker), new quiet dishwasher, an over the stove microwave, 4-slice toaster, blender and loads of other cooking implements. Our spacious villa has lots of room to spread out or to get everyone together as a group. Everything is designed to ensure your comfort and enjoyment. Our living room has a large Smart flat screen TV with VCR/DVD, with cable TV and seats 8. Our dining room seats 8 plus we leave a card table and 4 additional chairs for the big family feast or some board game fun (we have a lending library of board games from 'Scene It' to "Clue"). Beyond is our sun room addition. Open the windows and enjoy your morning coffee or an afternoon snooze. The place is beautifully decorated to get you into that beach relaxing mode. Our motto is: 'Leave your tensions behind!'

Our beautiful resort has 3 outdoor pools and tennis. The community is lush with mature trees and plenty of green open space and ponds, yet quiet enough to hear the frogs at night. We are located across from our resort's 2 tennis courts and largest pool with the clubhouse. (2 more pools are within a 1 block walk). Community pool passes and tennis rackets provided at no extra cost. Our community is lush and green with mature plantings, ponds and lots of open space -- perfect for jogging or a leisurely stroll to look at the fish ponds. Whatever your pace, the beautiful resort is full of places to explore.

Our Villa is only 1 mile to Rehoboth Beach, the Ocean, the Boardwalk and FUNLAND! Driving to the beach? We make it easy by lending you our beach parking pass for one car to save you the trips to pay the parking meters. Biking to the beach? Store your bikes in our garage. Either way, we leave all the beach necessities like beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, and sand toys for your use too -- even a little tykes wagon to haul kids or stuff to the beach.

Come to our beach house and see why Rehoboth is everyone's favorite! Just this year, Coastal Living Magazine picked Rehoboth Beach as in the top 10 "Happiest Seaside Towns to live in" nationally! In 2014 Travel & Leisure named Rehoboth one of the 'Best Little Beach Towns in America'. Parents Magazine, 2013 voted Rehoboth Beach in its top 10 beaches (including Hawaii and Corona Del Mar, CA)! 2012 it was in 'Southern Living' picked Rehoboth's wooden boardwalk as #1 in the country. Delaware is consistently ranked among the cleanest beaches in the country. Come to our beach house and see why Rehoboth is everyone's favorite!

About Kerry

My husband is retired Navy, but I'm the one who loves the water! We bought our first beach house so we would have a home at the beach for our family (children, their grandparents, nieces and aunts...) to enjoy and make their own treasured 'summer memories'. While it is truly our home away from home, we can't be there as often as we'd love to, so we open it up to your family to make your own family memories. Enjoy!

Kerry purchased this villa in 2005

Why Kerry chose Rehoboth Beach

Location, location, location--within your budget. Our 5BR/3.5Bath Villa is the best value for your hard earned money at the beach! A large two story house, one mile and minutes to all Rehoboth Beach has to offer, fine restaurants, the boardwalk and ocean/beach but not for millionaire prices. If you are looking for a place to relax away from the crowds, yet so close to have it all, come to our villa, "The Boat House". When we take a family vacation our ultimate goal is relaxation. We picked our resort for location--quiet and green open spaces unrivaled anywhere this close to the beach/boardwalk. While we love the hustle and bustle of the boardwalk, Fun Land, the restaurants and the shops, when we've had enough we love to retreat back to our beach home and listen to the the frogs at night or look up to the clear stars in the sky. The best part is we are only 1 mile and minutes away so we can easily enjoy both worlds!

This is the best value for your money. You can't beat the price for such a large house and so close to the ocean/boardwalk. Prices are all inclusive (e.g., parking, beach parking pass, resort pool and tennis etc) -no hidden costs.

What makes this villa unique

Only in our resort is it so quiet at night that you can hear the bullfrogs sing! Yet, by day you are minutes to the outlets, and the energy of downtown Rehoboth's beach/boardwalk. If your idea of vacation is feeling like you're off the grid (even when you aren't), you can't beat our villa, the Boathouse, in Rehoboth Beach!

Wonderful Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from an outstanding vacation to Rehoboth Beach and we stayed at this beautiful "Family Friendly" vacation house! Fun was had by all and the house was just perfect! We had 6 adults and 2 children - and everyday we enjoyed the pool and the tennis court that was directly across the street, we played games every night (supplied by the owners), had yummy food on the grill and just sat back and relaxed! Went to the beach (you do have to drive) with our cars filled with beach toys, umbrellas, chairs, a wagon, boogie boards, etc. (all supplied by the owner). I would highly recommend this lovely home for a vacation - perfect for families, girls/guys getaways, etc. Thank you for a great time!

This house was very user friendly.

  • 5 of 5

Our family included six adults and two children. We had a delightful time in this very comfortable home. There was plenty of room for all of us. We used the sunroom quite often for putting puzzles together or just sitting. The girls loved the pool and went swimming every day. We enjoyed playing Bingo three evenings in a row (this game was one of the many games available).

We were very pleased with Kerry's timely responses to any inquiries we had. The description of the home was accurate. The parking was wonderful because we had three or four vehicles to park. We would definitely recommend this property to others.

Owner's Response: Bingo! Sounds like we had a winner on both sides; I love it when our beach house helps families make great memories of the beach--that's just what we hope for. Thanks so much for your kind comments and please think of us again if your family vacations include Rehoboth Beach. Kerry

great house!

  • 4 of 5

9 of us stayed at the house this past weekend. the weather was unfortunately crappy, but the house is adorable! we were comfortable and had everything we needed. We also particularly enjoyed all the VHS tapes in the house as well as the working VCR- we definitely watched a lot of videos from our youth during the rain....

Kerry was great to communicate with- she was responsive and easy going and provided a lot of information before we got down to the house.

I'd definitely rent from Kerry again!

Owner's Response: We try to think of everything to make our guests have the vacation they deserve, but we just haven't figured out how to change the weather. Kudos to your group for making lemonade out of the lemons of a rainy beach weekend. I am glad our video trip down memory lane made the stay a bit cozier. Thanks for your kind words, and please look us up next time you come to Rehoboth. Kerry

Rehobobth Beach

1 mile to Rehoboth's beach&ocean/boardwalk/FUNLAND. Rehoboth Beach is full of great restaurants, boutique shops and Fun Land arcade. Where else can your toddler ride a mini-fire truck for 50 cents? In addition to our resort's green open space, at the end of our road is the 8 mile bike trail to explore. Maybe you prefer a fantastic meal at the Big Fish Grill-- within walking distance from us-Voted Delaware Best Seafood for too many years to count. Up the road, about 1 mile begins the tax-free outlet shopping area. A little closer is Jungle Jim's the biggest and best water-park around!

We are also close to extreme water sports or a relaxing historic town with deep sea fishing and dolphin watching charters from its harbor.
