"Our family group of 13 (ages 1 to 75) had a great time in this comfortable, clean, and compact house. The location truly cannot be beat. We went for almost an entire week without using cars, and the 4 and 5 year olds in our group could easily walk to and from the beach (and to ice cream, coffee shops, and a small grocery/convenience store). Ocean Grove is a charming town and the beaches are clean and well guarded. While the house is "compact" the three levels plus two large porches meant that we never felt like we were on top of each other or cramped.
The house contained almost everything we needed (except a high chair and portacrib that we brought for the smallest) and this made our stay quite easy and relaxing. It stayed cool on a humid/muggy day and night (with A/C and fans); the kitchen was very well appointed with the gear we needed to cook communal meals from scratch; two large tables - one in the kitchen, the second in the front room - provided ample room for us all to sit together to eat as well. The amenities (bathrooms, kitchen appliances, w/d) were all in good working order and on the "new" side. Most impressively, all of the advertised beach gear - beach towels, umbrellas, chairs, toys, tags - was there and in excellent condition. The good weather meant that we did not nee to delve deeply into the enormous DVD collection but we could have happily passed rainy/bad weather days in the basement media room.
Two of the bedrooms are capacious, the other three are smaller (though not cramped). The basement bedroom with a twin bed provided a useful retreat for the teenager; the bedroom with four bunks and a double bed good for the smaller kids and parents. I think the only thing we thought was missing were some reading lights! But in an age of the Kindle, this was a truly minor thing.
ON that note, the house does not (this year, 2014) have WiFi, which some in our party (the teenager in particular) initially found frustrating. But by the end of the week, the enforced "respite" from the screens and the many pleasures of being together that this nice house offered to us had turned into a very good thing! We had a great time."

"We stayed in the Chadwick Cottage for a week this winter and absolutely loved it! The house is beautiful and the location is great for walking to tons of different restaurants, shops, and the beach. It was the perfect, relaxing place to stay with room for extended family to visit. I can't wait to plan another trip! And the owner is very helpful and accessible."

"Nice 3 bedroom has best of both worlds. Quiet and charm of Ocean Grove(Victorian homes, Great Auditorium family beach) but just a short walk to Cookman Ave and fun in Asbury Park. All 3 bedrooms are comfortable with nice beds and A/C. Well equipped kitchen. Owners are very accommodating. Lots of beach gear you can use. Loved the Sonos wifi music.
Great porch overlooking Wesley Lake. We'd go back and/or recommend to friends. We really enjoyed our week there."

"Both Tony and I really enjoyed our vacation at your cute and cozy cottage during the week of June 20-June 26. We absolutely loved everything about it! It was extremely relaxing and your home provided all of the conveniences of home to make our stay perfect! We are actually interested in coming back for a weekend in September as well as next summer! Thank you again for making our experience such a great and memorable one!
Janice and Tony"
