"I stayed in one of the Sun of the Beach rental units with my husband, my sister, and my 5 year old niece, and we had a great time. The owner of the building, Jonathan, was so friendly and helpful throughout the entire process. This was the first time I have stayed in an owner-operated vacation rental, and I will look out for the opportunity to do so again in the future.
A few notes/highlights:
Location: The location is simply awesome. A 2 minute walk to the beach and boardwalk meant more time actually enjoying the things to do and less time walking. HUGE bonus, especially if you are traveling with little kids. 2 blocks to a decent little store, a liquor store (very important on vacation), and laundromat.
Parking: While there is free street parking nearby the house, take Jonathan's advice and contact the owner of the little parking lot behind the unit. There is a gate leading from the parking lot into the back yard space of the condos--very convenient for loading and unloading. The owner, Bobby, gives a great discount to Jonathan's customers, and it is so nice to have in and out privileges all week. If I had one piece of advice for folks staying here, this would be it.
Facilities: Everything in the house was in good working order and as promised. The property has a shared charcoal grill, which we used to cook lunch/dinner several times during our stay. There are nice solid picnic tables out back where we ate and hung out--very nice. The property's wifi worked well for all of us and our numerous devices. The kitchen was stocked with all of the basics, and there was a nice collection of paper plates, plasticware, cups, coffee filters, salt/pepper, etc. left from previous tenants. Definitely bring your own toilet paper, though!
Furnishings: The beds were really comfortable and everything was in good shape. Don't forget your own linens--otherwise, everything is good to go.
In short, I would recommend this property and my husband and I are already talking about a repeat visit for next year. Thanks, Jonathan!"
