Fabulous Find for a Family and Pet
"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 week. Your home was clean, very comfortable, close to the beach and walking distance to shops, restaurants, rentals, etc. Your other guests and neighbors were very nice. The fresh garden vegetables were a huge bonus and much appreciated."

"This house truly was all you could ask for in a shore house. Beautiful bay views from almost every room in the house, equipped with everything you could possibly need, well furnished and very comfortable. Just a short walk from Surf City shops and restaurants and right next to the bay beach which is great for families. We loved every minute of our time here and hope to stay again!"

"Our stay July 4th week in Surf City was great. To wake up every day and drink a cup of coffie on the upper deck while listening and watching the ocean waves was paradise ! The location was fantastic, very convenient to get on your bicycle and go or grab your beach chair , cooler and go. Walk off the beach into the outdoor shower, that's always nice when you have a house full. The air conditioning works very well , the beds were comfortable ,it's clean. The kitchen area could use a little love it's lacking some cooking supplies such as a decent cutting board and spatula, be sure to bring some basic lysol wipes. The owner is a great communicator and is supportive to your needs. This is the second home out of 5 he rents and we will rent again next year! We had a great time!"
