  • Exceeded My Expectations

    "If you're looking for a wonderful peaceful natural location to get away from the maddening world, this is it! I spent almost a week here the first week of July and didn't want to leave. The owners Bill and Joanna are welcoming gracious hosts and gave me great advice about restaurants and nearby activities. I enjoyed the Black Rabbit Grill so much I was in there almost every night for dinner. I had been looking at the photos and talking to the owner for quite awhile before deciding to book it and I am so glad I did! The internet photos are great, but the actual feel of the place once you arrive and settle in is so much better. I highly recommend it and I will certainly go back!"

  • Idyllic

    "i·dyl·lic: extremely happy, peaceful, or picturesque. That's such a perfect word to describe our time in the Henkle House. Here's why: Location - the best thing about this place is the proximity to the beach. You are about 100 steps to the gate that gets you onto the private beach. The owner left us plenty of wrist bands that private beach goers must use. Ocean Beach Park is 25 ft to the right of the private beach so there is super easy access. Renovated house - the house has been recently renovated and belongs in the pages of a catalog. the owner went first class all the way - frontgate outdoor furniture, outdoor kitchen, pottery barn bedding, pier 1 accessories. I've never been in a rental that has been so carefully and beautifully decorated. So relaxing! Great for kids - Ocean Beach Park kept the kids easily entertained, cloudy or sunny. mini-golf, splash park, amusement rides, beach, playground, digging for crabs. At the end of each day, we stuck all five kids (mostly toddlers) upstairs to sleep on the 3rd floor. There was a TV in there so they could watch a movie at the end of the day and fall asleep. I honestly don't know why this area isn't jammed all summer long but I am grateful that it hasn't yet been discovered. This house was a perfect place for us - launching pad for Ocean Beach Park activities and relaxing for the granddad who preferred to read on the beautiful outdoor deck. We hope to come back for years to come."

  • The Simple Life Defined!

    "The lake house was outstanding. Our day to day busyness and stress washed away within moments of getting to the house and seeing the amenities available and finding that the Owners had thought of everything and kept the place pristine. All the needs we could think of were there and available, the access to the lake was great, the surrounding area was a nature lovers dream, and the peace and quiet was just what the doctor ordered. Thanks to John and Rita, we will be looking forward to next year!"

  • Jewel of the Sea

    "Straight out of a romance novel. Upon entering the house, my 23 year old son expressed that he was overwhelmed with the thought that this property was nothing less than a true "treasure." He immediately proclaimed it the best house on all the shoreline. It's beauty is magnified by the warm cozy feeling of simpler days gone by, but the house is far from lacking in any amenities. Even in all its simplicity, it provides all the necessities of daily living that could ever be needed to enjoy a fabulous getaway. The owner proves to be a gracious host and has the home fully stocked the house with every trinket and tool that could ever be needed on any vacation......... from numerous tables, chairs, pillows and family games right down to an ice-cream scoop, cork screw and matches on the fireplace. No need to worry if you forget to bring something. It's already there! The furnishings were quaint and elegant to appeal to the true eclectic heart, and the beds................contrary to an earlier post.................were "Oh Ssooooo............ comfortable!" One of the best night's sleep we ever had on a trip. The whole house speaks volumes of warm hearts, happy family gatherings, and just plain overall good times. We will definitely be going back again, and again!!!"
