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 rented this ocean-front house primarily for its elevator and other accessible features for our late September, multi-generational getaway. We were happily surprised to realize it is also one of the most beautiful and comfortable beach houses we have stayed in. Although the weather was not cooperative, we had a great time watching the beach from the deck and the main living spaces. The house was spotless upon arrival, and the owners seem to think of every detail--from extra pillows in the closets to baby gates for the stairs. Would love to come back during better weather and really take advantage of the amazing roof deck, from which you can see LBI from a whole different vantage point."

"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."

"Spent 2 weeks in Paradise! We LOVE Surf City and this house is right in the hub of it. The house is located on the ocean block. Beautiful, clean beach that goes on and on. Restaurants, deli/butcher, ice cream, stores, Catholic church, shopping all within walking distance. Our extended family had plenty of room to eat, sleep (4 bedrooms plus pull out couch), cook, and relax. Janene is very responsive to emails and calls. House is very clean."
