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 Ocean View

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.

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This home is the perfect mix of beach and resort. Short trip to the beach, walk to the pool, which is so much fun for little ones AND adults! Very private and quiet community, everyone was so pleasant. The home is beautifully decorated and clean, and makes you feel like you are home away from home. The owner is great with communication!

Terrific Stay In Ocean View, DE!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 stayed here the week of 8/6. The house is spacious and well-appointed. There was ample parking for our three cars. The street was quiet and the communication with the owners was terrific. There is a nice lazy river and the community pool and a separate pool for adults. The master suite was incredibly spacious; everything is brand-new here. There is a shuttle that runs on the hour, I believe. We had an 11 year old and my in-laws with us so I didn't take the shuttle, just drove to Bethany Beach, which with traffic took 10-15 minutes. The parking was difficult. The house, while very nice was a little farther from the beach than we would have liked. The community pool also had a tiki bar and grille which was really great. The adult pool only goes to about 3 feet as does the kids pool/lazy river. They had a volleyball net and a basket ball net in the kids pool which was fun. They had ample lounge chairs and everyone was so nice. The only suggestion I would have would be to try and improve the wifi connection. Our cell data was spotty as well. I don't know whether an extender would help but both connections were painfully slow. If you're down there, check out Charlie K's bbq. It is the best!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Andrea, we are so happy you enjoyed your stay! We appreciate your feedback on the WiFi and cell coverage. We plan to install an extender and a signal booster in the fall that should help to improve both. Thanks again and we hope you return again soon! Bill and Nancy

We have four couples who go somewhere to play golf every year and this year we stayed at this property. The home (and kitchen) was well equipped and we have a number of cooks who could do their jobs at the same time in the large and well-laid-out kitchen. The bar and dining table were great spots to hang out. The bedrooms and baths were spacious, clean and comfortable. Lots of great golf courses nearby and Bethany Beach, with its restaurants, shops and beach was just a short car ride. The pool had not yet opened but the neighborhood was beautifully kept and it would be a great place for both us older folks and for families. Highly recommend it.

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.
