Perfect house for a lg family pls gorgeous sunsets
"We had our whole family of 14 together and we never felt crowded. The bedrooms & bathrooms are nice, the kitchen is big & open & the rooftop deck is priceless! Our boys got up early everyday & headed either to the bay on their bikes or took the kayaks & fished & crabbed all day. The beach is a few blocks but not a big deal. Drive & park at the end of 16th By the lifeguards. If the ocean is rough, you can come back & swim in the calm bay beach. The owners provided about 8 nice beach chairs so don't bring too many from home. We also threw my husband a 50th birthday party at the house. What a hit on the rooftop deck. Everyone who came LOVED the house! Joe & Donna were a pleasure to work with. We may book two weeks next year! Thx for the memories :))

"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."

"We had an enjoyable stay at this vacation home. The "above the garage" apartment was perfect for our needs. Cozy apartment with a well appointed kitchen, comfie beds, a/c, but also lots of windows which allow cross ventilation for those lovely ocean breezes, picnic table/sitting area. The beach passes gave access to the beach, just doors away. This was the best part of the vacation, being so close to the beach, and also close to other amenities. We didn't need to use the car after we arrived in Surf City. The owner has a well kept property. We got along well with the other renters at the main house, sharing the beautiful outdoor shower and barbeque grill and laundry facilities. There was more than enough capacity for all to use these amenities."
