Great Vacation Home for Extended Family
"We really enjoyed our stay at this house! This was the fifth year in a row for us and we look forward to number six next year. We were 10 people (7 adults and 3 children) and there is more than enough space for all of us. It is listed as accommodating 16 and I think that would work fine. There are many things that make this house afttractive. Number one is location. Being beach front is wonderful for the views as well as convenient access to the beach. We easily go back and forth between the house and the beach (which is essential with kids). The fact that is is also only a few blocks to the bay, allows for easy use of the bay for activities like kayaking and paddle boarding. It is easy walking distance to a wide variety of restaurants, bagel shop, bars, retail stores, etc. Because it is only a few blocks from the causeway, it is easy to get on and off the island during peak times. The house itself is very comfortable and the extensive decks are wonderful. The owner, Chris, is a pleasure to deal with. He is extremely responsive and always tries to meet your needs. He continually is making upgrades to the house as well as keeping up with the maintenance necessary for a beach front house."

Delightful Setting, Charming Condo, Great Location, Rich Amenities, Restful Stay
"My wife and I came with our college aged son and one of his friends. All enjoyed traveling on the Island by car and bicycle. We strongly suggest a trip to the Barnegat Lighthouse and Park. The local dining options run the full gambit from very causal/take out to three star. One week was not enough to experience it all.
The condo itself is pristine and very comfortable. Easily accommodating the four of us. The location couldn’t be better! And it’s fun to sit either at the picnic table, or on the Adirondack chairs on the porch to watch the goings on in the “Marina”. This has to be one of the best locations on the island (we went end to end a few times and even climbed the light house). The ocean beach entrance is two short blocks away. Very relaxing week, and we appreciated the beach passes, a very considerate touch. The barbeque came in very handy for preparing lunches and reheating leftovers from dining out the night before. Other than the coffee pot, the vast array of appliances sat unused.
Our neighbors were all great and very friendly. We enjoyed swimming, surfing, fishing and strolling (the island is flat so there is no real hiking). Hope this rave review doesn’t hurt availability when we plan to come back! ;)"

"I have been renting properties for my summer vacation all my life. This property offered exactly what I wanted from my vacation. It was fabulous. We were able to accommodate family members for a couple of days and friends for a couple of other days. Sunrise and Sunset -- every day the weather cooperated. I saw such beautiful sunrise that I began setting my alarm to wake up and not miss one -- at night I set my alarm to catch the sunset. We went parasailing and jetskiing. Jetskis available right there! All the amenities for a perfect vacation. The owner and few neighbors were as welcoming as a good friend might be. I have never taken the time to recommend a home but I could not not take the time to recommend this wonderful home."

"I stood in the house with my husband and 2 teenage daughters and from the moment we entered the house we were so pleased with the location and the great decor. I especially enjoyed relaxing on the rooftop deck and just watching the sunset. It is the perfect location and the owner was very accommodating. I highly recommend this house, very clean and quiet neighborhood. Will definitely rent again!"
