About the property

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)


Appropriately named for its close proximity to the pier, "Flounder In" is smack in the middle of it all in central downtown Surf City, within walking distance to just about everything Surf City has to offer including shops, restaurants, entertainment, and fishing. A nearly new construction, this one bedroom home is great for small families, couples or individuals that are looking for a more "upscale" vacation option. This home features large sweeping decks with an oceanfront gazebo where you can relax in the shade with a good book, or catch a tan on the deck. A private boardwalk provides access to the beach and ocean.

Entering the home on the first floor, it soon becomes apparent as to why this is such a popular home. Modern appliances and decor, spacious design and large windows open your "indoor" experience into the beautiful sights and sounds of the beach.The bottom floor of this unit is a multi-functional living space with a full kitchen, fridge, microwave and stove. Also on the bottom floor is a small flat screen television and comfortable living room furniture containing a pull-out queen size bed for additional sleeping accommodations. A dinette set sits to the right as you enter. Rounding out the bottom floor is a full bath and spiral staircase that takes you to the second level.

The second floor is more of the same....just better! Here you will find a very large bedroom with French style doors welcoming you out onto the oceanfront balcony. A queen bed and over-sized chair strategically set to the side of the balcony await. Finally, an additional bath/shower is conveniently located to the side as you crest the spiral staircase.

The laundry area is located underneath the home in the covered parking area for convenience. "Flounder In" provides everything you could need for a luxurious stay at the beach. Come see why this little charmer is such a popular destination in Surf City.

Making Wonderful Memories at the Flounder In

  • 5 of 5

The Flounder In was a quaint little vacation home. It had everything we were looking for. We did not want to leave! Our little family of 4 really enjoyed our stay and would like to return in the future. It is located in a very convenient area. We parked our car for the duration of our stay and walked everywhere we wanted to go. Easy access to restaurants, shopping and the local IGA. The ocean was beautiful and the sand was white and soft to walk in.

Not what the pictures show!

  • 3 of 5

We were so excited to stay at this little gem on the beach. When we arrived the pictured hammock was no where to be found! How disappointing. We were unable to eat dinners on the HUGE deck since there was not enough deck furniture. Since the house is small, which is what we expected we hoped to spend most of our time outside on the deck, which we couldn't. The inside of the house was filthy. Yes, the cleaning crew had been there, but the mold in the showers was sickening. The splatters of unidentifiable "matter" on the wall were also disgusting. The ceiling fans were caked with dust. One of the electric socket outlets was ripped from the wall. We spent half a day looking for an air mattress to have our 2 little guys sleep on since the pull out bed was not comfortable at all. I think if there are 2 people staying in this house it is plenty big. The bed in the bedroom was just fine.

If the Flounder In gets a real good cleaning, had the hammock, was furnished with enough deck furniture and there were only 2 people this house would be the gem I had hoped it would be!

Perfect for Two

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this lovely property last year and are returning again this year. The location and layout are just beyond compare. We found it to be an idyllic getaway where we could read, breathe and luxuriate in all nature has to offer. We couldn't tear ourselves away from the property to even attempt to sightsee, although there is always that option.

Almost too good to be true, but it is true!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here over a long spring weekend. The house is perfect! You really could not ask for a better home to rent in Surf City, unless your party is greater than 4. For those whose party is 4 or less, do not hesitate, grab this gem while you can! House is adorable, multi tiered deck and gazebo with million dollar views and location is unsurpassed, parking is awesome. Really, it doesn't get any better than this. Can't wait to go back, so please nurture this baby when you visit, as I want to experience this gem in the future!

What a wonderful little place

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I very recently returned from this gem of a place. We loved every minute there. To say that its close to everything is an understatement. We had restaurants, stores, gift shops, a spa and much more right outside our door. Not to mention you are feet away from the pier. Needless to say we parked the car the first night and never had to use it again until we left. The furniture had been update in the kitchen/ living area and was very comfortable. The bathrooms( which are not shown) are spacious and updated. This place had it all. I cant wait to be able to visit Surf City again, and for sure this will be where we stay!

Sweet place for 2!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this little place, It was just perfect for our getaway. The location is wonderful, on the beach, pub with great food next door, groceries just across the street and the pier is RIGHT THERE!. We walked everywhere. The deck and cabana are great, we spent a lot of time there. If you're looking for a cozy place for 2 with great amenities, this is it!
