Great place to relax
"The deck is awesome, beautiful and convenient pathway, love the location, upstairs living area is comfortable. The outside shower is a bonus but the downstairs indoor shower and bathroom isn't ideal. Thoughtful, whimsical, seascape decor is a charmer. One can tell the house is well cared for... We shall return. Great place overall. Wish our dogs were welcome!"

"We stayed here again this summer, and it is just as perfect as it always is - well stocked, clean, comfortable, decorated nicely and no sign of wear and tear from year before. The owners are so accommodating and considerate. The locations is perfect for bay and beach, bagels, groceries, cute shops and restaurants, all in walking distance. We will always go back to this house if we continue to vacation in Surf City. My husband and I had a four year old, a one year old, and 81 year old and a nurse with us, so it's perfect for every age and situation!"

"It was the best way you end the summer, with the family . Including our pet. The house was in a good location to the beach. There was plenty of room for everyone. Large living room for family gatherings. Children loved the view from the balcony. Owner was very helpful to all our question and needs. I would highly recommend this house for any family that wants to enjoy there summer stress free."

"Wow! Did our family of 4 adults, 2 small children and 1 beagle, luck out with the Sea Tulip!
Not only was the house on the beach block, but there was a traffic light at the corner of N. 19th Street and the Boulevard, making it simple and SAFE to cross over when walking or turning left when driving.
The house offered plenty of beds and our almost 2 year old grandson slept in the full-sized crib stored in an upstairs bedroom closet, so we didn't have to rent one.
Towels, bedding, beach necessities (cart, chairs, umbrellas, toys) were all there and so was a washer and dryer, which was used daily.
Tableware and silverware, along with sturdy plastic glasses met our needs well, as did the gas grill and dish washer.
There was plenty of room inside and out for the children to play safely and for the adults to sit around and relax, especially on the back covered deck and the yard with its hammock and patio seating.
A general market, many restaurants, ice cream shops, gift shops and much more were within a short, 3 block distance of the house and made for a really casual vacation.
However, if you really want to know what the best part of this experience was, it had to be dealing with the owner, Mike. No questions or details about the house and surrounding areas were left unanswered in a very timely fashion. He's a fabulous owner who takes great pride in his Surf City home and is kind enough to share it with those lucky enough to rent it.
The Sea Tulip is an all around winner."
