BEST RESORT IN DELAWARE

The Peninsula has been named BEST RESORT in Delaware for its world-class amenities and for its distinctive and luxurious design. The first thing you see as you enter the gated Peninsula grounds is a beautiful fountain followed by a tree lined, elegant main "esplanade"-which leads thorough the resort…a combination of beautiful homes, natural settings, nature paths, etc. For the holidays, the evening view is spectacular with lighted trees for each community. In the spring, colorful tulips and spring flowers greet you. As you enjoy the beauty of the surroundings as you drive up the esplanade, you feel your body relax and stress disappear.

WHAT DOES THE PENINSULA OFFER?

Where to begin? The Peninsula is a large, gated country club community. It contains a Jack Nicholas Signature Golf Course that winds between the homes, woodlands, and marshes of the development with frequent water views of ponds, but also views of the Indian River Bay, a large bay flowing into the Atlantic Ocean. Sunrises at the Peninsula are spectacular as are moonlit nights.

If you aren’t a golfer, it doesn’t matter. There are many opportunities for recreational activities at the resort AND OUR CONDO IS WALKING DISTANCE TO THESE AMENITIES AS WELL AS THE CLUBHOUSE.

• Tennis courts, pickleball courts, a basketball court

• Private beach for wading (low waves) with kayak launch and kayak rentals

• Bicycle rentals and safe, beautiful area for bike riding

• POOLS: Indoor year-round pool, outdoor adult pool, and wave pool with a sandy beach and a playground, indoor and outdoor hot tubs for adults

• Gym, Aerobics room, game room

• Nature Center with 12 miles of walking trails, fishing pier

• The Terrace restaurant (summer), the spectacular clubhouse restaurant (Friday and Saturday dinner for members only; available for rental guests at other times.)

If you google “Peninsula Millsboro DE” you can go to some of the builder and Peninsula websites and see video and pictures of the amenities listed above.

THE CONDO

Our unit offers 1,350 square feet of luxury condominium living. The 2-bedroom, 2-bath condo has been decorated with flair and features a gourmet kitchen with upgraded cabinetry, tile floor, granite counters, and stainless-steel appliances. It is complete with small appliances/cookware and china/silverware that provides service for 12, a contemporary dining room and spacious living room. In the winter or on cold fall and winter days, turn on the gas fireplace with a flip of a switch and relax after a busy day shopping at the outlets or touring. Just past the living room is your private screened in balcony with a view of the woods and the golf course. Designed with light, bright and airy spaces this home offers ultimate privacy and relaxation.

The unit includes a full-sized washer and dryer, free WIFI FIOS connection, 42-inch HD TV in the Living room, 32-inch TV in the Master bedroom, and a DVD player. There is a King bed in the master bedroom and a chair that converts into a single bed. In the second bedroom there is a Queen size bed and for additional sleeping accommodations, two single cots are available. In front of the condo building is a small toddler’s playground and there is designated, covered parking underneath the building. The condo is within easy walking distance to the clubhouse and Lakeside Village where all of the pools, golf facilities, tennis courts, gym, and restaurant are located.

The condo will accommodate two couples or a small family. The limit on the number of guests is 5. It is a great get away in a beautiful environment! Rates off season are very low. The rates per bedroom are lower than a hotel and you have a living room, a full kitchen, a washer and dryer, comfortable porch, etc. Don't hesitate to inquire.

Our condo is walking distance to the clubhouse and the Village amenities (swimming pools, tennis courts, gym, etc.) We have two adult bicycles for you to use as well as beach chairs, beach umbrella, sand toys, etc for your use. There are lounge chairs for guests at the outside pools and some chairs at the bay beach. Inside the condo we also have a variety of books, movies on DVDs, and CDs.

FACILITY FEES

There is a fee charged by the country club for using the amenities. Off season (September 4-May23) the daily rates are $7 for adults (16 and older) and $5 for children (6-15). Children 5 and under are free. (Weekly passes off season are $45 for adults and $30 for children.)

The summer season is May 24 to September 3 in 2018. The weekly pass is $85 for adults and $45 for children. Children under 5 are free. I now require a 6 or 7 day rental for the summer season.

Use of the bay beach is free. The sandy bay beach is great for seeing the sunrise or letting little children explore the beach and nature. I have a storage area that contains two old fashioned coaster bikes for guest use as well as beach chairs, beach toys, a beach umbrella, and miscellaneous items. The Peninsula is a great place for walking, running, or bike riding.

The Peninsula rents kayaks, paddle boards, and bicycles at reasonable rates.

CHECK IN AND OUT TIMES AND LINENS

Check in time is 4:00 PM on the day of arrival and check out time is 11:00 AM on day of departure. Off season you can have extra time if no one is coming or going on the day of your departure.

Linens (towels and sheets) are not included with this unit. (Special accommodations can be made for travelers who are coming by plane or unusual circumstances, especially off season.) Bath rugs and dish towels are included and usually there is a supply of paper products in the condo.

NEARBY PLACES TO VISIT and DAY TRIPS

Tangier shopping outlets are 15-20 minutes away. Delaware has tax free shopping so it the item cost $25 that is what you pay…no tax. For swimming in large waves, Rehoboth Beach, Dewey Beach, and Lewes Beach are all about a half hour drive away. Along the route 1 corridor connecting the various beach towns are the outlets and many stores and restaurants and tourist attractions. The little town of Millsboro is 10 minutes away and has many antique shops and an inexpensive old-fashioned bowling alley. There is a modern, more expensive one called Lefty’s on route 1. There is a water slide park on Route 1, goofy golf, movies, go cart racing, etc.

The Peninsula is located on the Eastern Shore, a large, interesting part of the country south of Philadelphia and Wilmington and across the Chesapeake Bay from Baltimore, Annapolis, and DC. From our condo, you can take many day trips to places on the eastern shore as well as along the Atlantic coast. The spring and fall off season are great times to visit. The weather is good, rates are low, and there is a lot to do within a one or two hours’ drive.

Day trips from the condo include the nautical town of St. Michael's Maryland, the Salisbury zoo and Ward Waterfowl Museum, Ocean City Md, the quaint towns of Berlin, MD, Lewes, DE, Milton, DE and many, many more. Go to Dover, DE and see the Air Mobility Command Museum or head to northern Delaware area for the famous Longwood Gardens, Winterthur museum and gardens, or the Hagley Museum. Take the ferry across the Delaware Bay, enjoy the boat ride, and go to the Victorian town of Cape May, New Jersey- a great day trip. South is the Chincoteague National Wildlife Area, NASA’s Wallops Island, and Assateague Island. Locals even take a bus trip to New York City for the day. My condo can be your place to relax after a busy day sightseeing. Unlike many states, the geography, the history, and the interesting sites are many and varied within short distances from the Peninsula. There is something for everyone nearby.

Off season there are many festivals and special events year-round in the Rehoboth area. In the fall the Jazz Festival and Sea Witch Festival are very, very popular. In the spring, the kite festival at Cape Henlopen State Park is a wonderful event for adults and children. Nearby towns also have special events. For example, there is an apple scrapple festival in Bridgeville, MD, colonial Dover Days in Dover, Delaware, Fifer Farms Fall Fest, and many, many more special events. What is special about all these events, is there is a small town flavor to them. They are not commercialized and great for families and people wanting to enjoy a week-end away.

About Gina Scanlon

We live locally and enjoy water activities on the inland bays such as boating, crabbing and clamming as well as swimming in the ocean beaches, tax free shopping, and great restaurants. Most week-ends there are special community events that attract travelers from nearby states. We had a second home in Rehoboth since the 1980's and in 2000 decided to move here permanently because we like the area so much.

Gina Scanlon purchased this condo in 2014

Why Gina Scanlon chose Millsboro

We were not even looking to buy a property when we found this lovely condo! It was decorated beautifully and in a great location, close to all the amenities in the Peninsula. It is so comfortable and relaxing to stay here. You can walk and bike in a beautiful setting year round. Also, it is centrally located for exploring the many quaint towns on the "Eastern Shore".

What really sold us was the Lakeside Village with pools and other amenities. You feel very pampered when staying here. The new clubhouse is wonderful! You can dine with views of the golf course and the water. This is the country club experience! Come and enjoy!

Beautiful Condo and Gina thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

I was very happy with the experience and Gina was very accommodating even answering the phone on Thanksgiving to help me find the right location as well as other things. Through no fault of hers, I had to call her 4 times on Thanksgiving Day and she was extremely patient. I would definitely stay at this location again.

Beautiful home in beautiful community

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Peninsula condo. The condo is really lovely, very comfortable, beautiful furnishings, and quiet building. The screened in porch facing the woods was a perfect place to drink coffee in the mornings. We loved taking the bikes out for a ride around the community and down to the beach. Nothing was missing - they had everything we needed there - and MORE! Thank you. We will certainly come back again.

Wonderful Getawy

  • 5 of 5

Gina - your property is wonderful. It was a perfect location for an October weekend away for my wife and I. This is by far the nicest, most well kept, and CLEAN place we have ever stayed in. We enjoyed morning bike rides with the bikes you provide, we loved the bay dock and beach on the property, everyone on the resort was very polite and welcoming. 15 minutes from boardwalk and beach attractions, Grotto Pizza 5 minutes from the resort, truly everything you need. We will definitely be returning in the future.
