About the property

2 story, 2450 ft Villa, 5 Bedrooms (2 master suites), 4 Baths, pool. Sleeps 12

Only booking for fall, September and October--sorry, all summer weeks are sold out.

Thanks again to all our guests who helped us to sell out last year, for the 10th season in a row (and welcome back many of you who have already booked to return), and to all our guests who continue to give us 5 star reviews. Come relax and enjoy the best pond view from both the first and second floors at 'Summer Memories', our spacious 5 bedroom, 4 bath 2-story Villa in the quiet resort of Eagles Landing with 3 pools and tennis--yet only 1 mile from the beach/wooden boardwalk, Atlantic ocean, tax free shopping and fine and family dining. Our charming 2,400 ft two-story villa is spacious, bright and sunny and has 3 reserved parking spaces in front of the house.We are the only Villas that sits on the pond and enjoy this stunning water view along with acres of green open space-- yet we are still less than 1 mile to the beach and tax free shopping too!

Our two-story villa is spacious, bright and sunny, with the family room/porch consisting of a wall of windows that overlooks the pond and fountain. In addition to our coveted water view, our house is the LARGEST model in the Villas to provide your family/guests with plenty of space to spread out. We have an extra full bath room (4 full baths total) and an extra family room/porch addition that runs the entire width of the house. In this addition we have an extra dining room table (seats 4) and a beautiful and tranquil pond view from our wall of windows for nature's view. The room also has a large flat screen Smart TV/Wii Rock in a chair and watch the wildlife in our beautiful pond or fall asleep to let the sounds of the fountain (it turns off at night). Or pull the sliding glass doors shut while the kids play and the adults have a quiet visit in the living room with no worries as the little ones can still be seen.

Our home's spacious, flat floor plan is ideal for one family or two. We have 2 spacious master bedroom suites (one on each level) with new pillow top mattresses on our queen beds, huge closets & private full baths. One of the two of the master bed room suites is on this first floor, especially nice for older guests or those with mobility issues. Upstairs are 4 other bedrooms including: (1) a second master bedroom suite with aerial pond views (2) a bedroom with a full bed plus a twin day bed (with trundle that gives an extra twin) with aerial pond views, (3) a bedroom with 2 twin beds; and (4) a bedroom with a queen bed. The second floor also has a full bath/tub in the hall. Bedrooms have flat screen/Smart TVs, Cable and wi-fi internet (plus use of our large video lending library for kids of all ages). Downstairs off the kitchen is a 4th bathroom with shower. Next is the laundry room with full sized washer/dryer.

When planning your family's feast, use our dining room table with 6 chairs and two extra (to seat 8) plus the extra dinning room table in the family room (seats 4), for seating for 12 (2 more stools at the breakfast bar feeds 14 at one sitting). Use our fully equipped kitchen to make the meal, use our grill, or go to our two neighborhood carryout resturants-- about 1 block away. One, the Big Fish Grill Restaurant and Market have been rated Delaware's Number 1 family and seafood restaurant for all of our years owning our house, the other, Arenas has great coffee and beer selection, and is often a Best of Winner in its class too.

The first floor's living room, dining room, kitchen and bath floors are Spanish ceramic tile. All bedrooms are Berber carpet. Off of the kitchen is our garage (feel free to use our beach chairs, toys and umbrellas--so you don't have to pack your own) and three reserved parking spaces in front.

Come to our beach house and see why Rehoboth is everyone's favorite! In 2016 Coastal Living Magazine 2016 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's water and beaches were named #1 in the country!

Outside, our Resort is lush with mature trees and plenty of green open space and ponds to explore, yet quiet enough to hear the frogs at night. Inside, our relaxing home has a beach theme to help you make your own special 'Summer Memories'. Rentals include the use of our beach parking pass for 1 car, wii and secured wi-fi, pool and tennis passes, and resort parking at no charge. (Note: While we leave lots of pillows and comforters, our cleaning crew does not have time to do linens, so we do NOT provide them. We can give you suggestions to rent them if you need). Sorry, NO Pets/NO Smoking and NO student groups.

About Kerry Tripp

My husband is retired Navy, but I'm the one who loves the water! We bought our first beach house in Rehoboth 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 Tripp purchased this villa in 2007

Why Kerry Tripp chose Rehoboth Beach

Location, location, location--within your budget. Our 5BR/4Bath villa is the best value for your hard earned money at the beach! A large house, one mile and minutes to all Rehoboth Beach has to offer, fine restaurants, the boardwalk and 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, "Summer Memories". 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 and the restaurants and 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! When we take a family vacation our ultimate goal is relaxation.

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-no hidden costs.

What makes this villa unique

Beyond the acres of green open space for walking or biking around our community, the 3 pools of our resort are really a treasure compared to many rentals at the beach. When the kids (big or little) don't feel like going to the beach, or just want to cool off after a day at the beach (or shopping or dining), it is great to pick a pool from the 3, stroll over and plunge in!

Our house is unique in that it is so large (with 2 stories and 24,000 sq ft) everyone can have their own space to do their own thing, but so comfy that getting together for a meal or family game night works too!

Picked by 'Parents Magazine' and 'Southern Living' as in the top 10 beaches in the country, everyone loves Rehoboth Beach--which the EPA ranks as the cleanest in the country! Our Villa is only 1 mile to Rehoboth Beach, Ocean and Boardwalk and FUNLAND! Driving to the beach? We make it easy by lending you our beach parking pass to save you the trips to pay the parking meters. Biking to the beach? Store your bikes in our garage (or rent them at the bike shop at the end of the street). Either way, we leave all the beach necessities like beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, and sand toys for your use too. We are located within a block's walk of our Resort's 2 tennis courts and 3 pools including the largest pool with the clubhouse that is about 200 yards away. Community pool passes and tennis court passes provided at no extra cost (we even lend your the racquets). 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, our beautiful resort is full of places to explore. Our Villa has 3 reserved parking spaces in front of our 1-car garage. With no steps/stairs to the first floor living space it is easy on the knees or to unload the car and groceries! Master suite on the first floor with no steps, plus seating in the shower. Inside our place, 2,400 square feet of two level living, is beautifully decorated to get you into that beach relaxing mode. Our motto is: 'Leave your tensions behind!' Our Villa has lots of space to spread out or to get everyone together as a group. Everything is designed to ensure your comfort and enjoyment. Our living room has cable TV/VCR/DVD. Between our 2 dining tables we can seat 12-14 for the big family feast or some board game fun (we have a lending library of board games from 'Scene It' to Clue). Our kitchen is fully equipped right down to the corkscrew and wineglasses! Large with plenty of counter space, our kitchen offers a new dishwasher, new garbage disposal, over the stove microwave, 4-slice toaster, blender, and new side by side refrig with ice maker on the door and loads of other cooking implements. We have dishes,glasses for service for at least 20. We also have a Weber charcoal grill outside. All BRs have cable and DVD or VCR's (and a lending library of all-age films). Our large bedrooms have new pillow-top beds and sleep 12 comfortably. NOTE: Although we leave plenty of comforters and pillows, our cleaners don't have the time to do laundry between guests so you must bring your own linens and towels (including beach towels). (With prior arrangements, the cleaners may agree to provide a linen service (provides sheets, towels etc and washes them after you check out for an additional payment of $125). Includes secured Wi-Fi, Wii game system (don't forget to pack your games) and central air conditioning. Also, our house is 'green cleaned' from the carpet cleaning to the weekly cleaning service--so if being natural and healthy is important to you, know that it is important to us too! We also leave a book with directions (to the outlets, fastest to the beach/parking, etc), things to do with the kids, plus restaurant recommendations, so don't forget to check it out for local tips!

We had a great time. The house is beautiful, convenient for almost anything you want to do. Plenty of beach chairs and toys. You really don’t need to bring much. Everyone had a great time. Would definitely stay here again!

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is my fourth year staying at this house and I always look forward to returning every year. The house is bright, big and clean. It is well located-- a few minutes to the beach/boardwalk or to the tax free outlet in the other direction. This year we brought our bikes and especially enjoy the trails that run to the bay and beautiful wildlife. One of the things I really like about this house is that the owner thinks of everything, so no matter what I do while I am here, I always feel relaxed. Usually when I leave my tension builds and I am sad to think it will be another year before I return to the beach, so I solved that. I am coming back in two months to stay again!

Kids loved the place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation at the house. We have been coming to Eagles Landing for the past few years. My six kids love the location and the community, especially the pools which are within a few minute walk. This house is so large they can all spread out and they especially enjoy watching their own cable TV shows. This house is very well taken care of -- everything is sparkling clean and it is very bright and sunny. We had a great time!

Baby's First Beach Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year of spending the week in the September off-season and we couldn't wait to return to our home-away-from-home beach rental with our new baby in tow. The house is so spacious there was more than enough room for all the extras she needed. Also, it is so quiet and comfortable we all even managed to sleep in and relax for some long naps. With a short easy drive to the beach or a stroll to the pool it was easy to enjoy the water with time left for some outlet shopping. The only bad part was having to leave and go home.

Will be booking again next year! Kerry is so wonderful to work with!! Thank you!!

Owner's Response: Thank you. I am thrilled that our back-to-back 2015 summer reviews are families celebrating such joyful events, a wedding and a new baby! We called this house "Summer Memories" because our family had made some many good memories there and we were hoping that other families would too. Glad to have your family return to us again this year and look forward to seeing you again next year! Kerry
