Great location and plenty of room for my kids and grandkids.

Equipped with everything we needed for a nice visit to the beach. Having a full bathroom with each bedroom was definitely a welcome feature.

This beach house was a wonderful place to stay and we highly recommend this everyone!

  • 5 of 5

Overall, we could not have been happier with the location, amenities, setup and comfort of this beach house! The owner Tom was more than accommodating and made us feel very welcome and relaxed. Even in the midst of some weather issues and uncontrolled work being done outside the residence, we still had an amazing vacation and we plan on coming back to this exact beach house next year!

If you are looking for a clean and comfortable place to enjoy your beach vacation this is the place for you! The location to the pool is also perfect as it's only feet away from the property and worked out very well for our two small children.

Great house..everything you need for a great vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully laid out house. Cleaned and prepped just liked you'd expect. Great to have a first floor master for the older folk!!! Separate baths for all 4 rooms. Outdoor shower was an added bonus. Kitchen completely stocked. Decks with good view of ocean. The first floor deck was kind of tight for more than 6 people, but it worked for us. And the ocean was a 100ft walk. Tom even has few beach toys, chairs and boogie boards. We really cant find anything negative about this rental and our overall experience. Thanks TOM!!!!!!

Big family vacation - comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We had an unusual week in Garden City. Due to a beach reclamation project, the beach in front of Portofino I was roped off for storing large pipes and heavy equipment. The owner gave us a warning as soon as he was aware of this issue (3 days before our reservation). I appreciate his honesty. He offered a full refund for the inconvenience, but we decided to continue with our plans. The beach access conveniently in front of our unit was not accessible, but we could walk a short way to access another boardwalk to the beach. All in all, we weren't severely impacted and the beach house was perfect for our 10 vacationers - 6 adults and 4 children ages 8 months to 10 years old. The home is comfortable and well equipped. Thank you, Thomas, it was a pleasure to meet you!

We have rented in many locations over the years so it is easy to make a fair assessment. My very picky wife liked this rental property so much she had me inquiring about purchase opportunities in this area. We are accustomed to bringing "everything" to a rental property, but I will say this was by far the most completely stocked of any so far. The layout of the house was perfect and the pool was an added bonus. Rental properties can get a lot of abuse, yet this property was well maintained. This was the first property ever that my wife said she might like to rent again in the future. Best of all was the frequent communication I had from the owner. I had numerous e-mails and several phone calls from him to insure that everything was as it should be. I cannot be more complimentary of the total experience. Thank you.
