"Truly enjoyed this location and house. The views and sounds of the water from the house are wonderful. The beach is easily accessible. The house was very comfortable. Quite enjoyed the long window seat. Perfect place to sit, read, and gaze out on the beach when it was cold or rainy. Kitchen is outfitted with lots of pots and utensils, and room! Had plenty of tools at our disposal to cook up a yummy meal or two. If you go during the offseason be prepared for a lack of dining choices, particularly during the week and in Strathmere. There are places to be found in Sea Isle and Ocean City but they aren't plentiful.
It was a quiet getaway for us and I can see it being a great option for a larger group during peak season. Enjoyed some of the personal touches including the the CD collection and variety of books. I wouldn't hesitate to go back and I'd recommend this to anyone.
From A to Z, the owner was extremely responsive and thorough with communications."

"This is the email I sent to Dot after our stay:
I just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed staying at your house this week. Everyone in the family (4 young boys, 4 30somethings and 3 seniors) thought it was terrific. We loved the big dining room table, where we had great family dinners with lots of laughs and two birthday celebrations. The back yard was just right for bubble blowing by the 3 and 4 year olds, and we loved sitting on the front porch in the evening. The awnings reminded me of my parents' house, which had striped awnings too.
And Avalon was a delight. We truly loved the town and the beach, the 5 and 10, Isabel's bakery, the seafood restaurants, etc. We stayed on the beach Friday night till the sun went down, but no one wanted to come in. We took advantage of the shopping in Stone Harbor and had a morning of Wildwood boardwalk fun. But the quiet, small town look and feel of Avalon was the best.
I broke a wine glass (one of the glasses with the black stem), but I don't think there was any other damage. We put the house back in order before we left.
I can't say just yet what our plans will be for next summer, but I'd love to take the house again. As soon as I can, I'll be in touch, and hopefully it will still be available.
Many thanks for a wonderful family vacation,

"Our second year staying at this condo. The location is great....close to the beach and the boardwalk. Close to Oves Restaurant (to eat and also rent bikes) and Browns. The condo has great views of the beach on two levels. The condo is always kept well and clean. It is real comfortable and cozy. My husband loves the two parking spots. Just a real nice place to stay! We will be back!"

"I had been looking for a house to rent since the one I had rented for 15 years was sold and torn down and finally found it. The crow's nest is absolutely perfect, from its beauty down to the location. Added bonus, the queen-size bed is extremely comfortable. The neighborhood is so quaint and the neighbors are so friendly. Everything you need is there. The owners are extremely accommodating and easy to reach. I rented it for 2 weeks this past summer and have already booked it for next summer. It truly feels like my home away from home."
