"My family and I spent a wonderful week at this home in June, and I cannot say enough good things about it. I've rented down the shore before, and have more often than not been disappointed with what we find when we arrive. This time however, was the major exception. I would say without a doubt, that the pictures do not do it justice. I hesitate to say that in some ways, as I want to rent this house for many years at the more affordable rent the owners charge and don't want the secret out, but that isn't fair. Honestly, the pictures don't capture how perfectly maintained and lovely this home is. It does NOT feel like a summer rental, at all. I felt like I was lucky enough to snag a week in a beautiful home with everything I could want right there, and the owners would come back on the weekend to live. It has everything one could possibly want for a beach house. I was surprised bed linens weren't included, but that's IT. Dishes, spices, bowls and serving platters in beautiful patterns, ironed table cloths and placemats, games aplenty, a HUGE family room with a large tv where we spent the rainy afternoon...the beach chairs and toys, the amazing verandas with comfortable patio furniture on the bottom and top decks...the brand new bbq and keurig, the lovingly maintained kitchen with anything one could possibly want...
And when we arrived, it was spotless, just pristine, so their cleaning service is excellent as well. And the owners actually called that night, to make sure everything was ok and we had what we needed!
We had a big crew, spread out over the week, including toddlers (who loved the full shelf of children's books in the kid's room), grandparents and teens. They all loved it. It is cozy enough to feel like you're sharing a true family vacation, yet spacious enough to escape for a bit in other areas of the house or the two big decks, for privacy.
I was also concerned about the location to the beach, as that was our primary activity. It was perfect. From the pics and Google maps, it's across a "major" street, which certainly doesn't seem like beachfront. But, it was. From the decks you could easily see the shore and sand, and the walk to the beach, even with toddlers and umbrellas and beach gear, was super easy. No problem at all. And they don't even mention that there's an awesome brand new playground 3 minutes away at the beach as well, which we used quite a bit.
Everyone in our group loved the property!
