Great! Prefect for 11 adults, 2 kids

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Parking was tight but that was because had a 12 passenger van plus 3 other cars because everyone coming from somewhere else. This rental had everything we needed, everyone slept comfortably. It is a townhouse with stairs, with queen bed downstairs. Master bedroom had a sofa couch with great view of water. Only regret is couldn't stay longer. Next time in area would look at renting this place again.

Everything we hoped it would be!

  • 5 of 5

This home provided the backdrop for an amazing family event - our son's wedding. The property location - on Chesapeake Bay - made our beach access easy/beautiful/FUN!! The house is spacious, clean and well stocked. Dana and Tom were more than helpful and available throughout our stay. When we asked if there was a booster seat available, a brand new one showed up at our doorstep the next day! The gated deck and yard made having children there safe. Plenty of room for family gatherings, yet peaceful location for reflection. This is an excellent place to rent and we hope we can return in the future.

The home was in immaculate shape and the owners, Tom and Dana, are so wonderful. The home was beautiful and it made a week with the family so much fun. Perfect for kids too. It really made us feel at home!

This place Rocked!

  • 5 of 5

Dana and Tom were outstanding to deal with. Very personable people. We had two small girls and the beach was perfect. No huge waves and the crabs were plentiful there. Private parking was nice too. We were there on the 4th of July and it was a great spot to what fireworks from. Located near everything you could ever imagine doing or needing, it was perfect for us. Their neighors were fantastic and they always kept a watchful eye out. We felt safe, at home and we had an incredible time. Dana even hooked us up with the most awesome sitter for our girls so we could go out to dinner. Caitlyn, you are fanatastic! House was as described, pictures do not give it its due rewards. I think they should post better picture. :) I'd recommend this property to anyone

Our best rental yet...

  • 5 of 5

The home is clean, spacious, well furnished, and conveniently located. Not only do you walk out onto the bay beach, but you are 3 short turns to Shore Drive and Great Neck Rd. The sandbar located about 30 feet out made it feel safer for the little ones, and the beach was never too crowded... what a huge plus.

Other homes I have rented have been sparsely or cheaply furnished -- not here. The kitchen accessories made cooking easy, and a grocery store was just a couple blocks away. The two dining areas made it easy to have an adults' table and a kids' table. We could tell we were in someone's home, and not just a house. There were books for the kids to read, games to play, beach toys and chairs, etc. And of course it has amazing sunsets from the deck or the generous master suite.

I would HIGHLY recommend this rental.

So great we've already booked next Summer!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great house. I mean, seriously!!!! It was clean. No. Wait. It was SPOTLESS. It was comfortable. It was cozy. It was such a perfect home for our family!!!!! The owners are THE nicest people, and were happy to rent to our family of 6. It was the ideal situation: right on the bay with a wonderful deck with ample space, a nice big TV room (for the ONE rainy day we had) and a prime location smack in the middle of a gazillion things to do. The owner(s) were extremely quick and responsive to my MANY inquiries, due primarily to a computer glitch which caused me to lose all my information. They never once lost their patience with me (I would have lost patience with me for sure). The photos shown accurately depict a lovely home that is very charming and carefully appointed--with every piece of furniture purposefully selected. You need to bring NOTHING--just your sheets, towels, clothing and food. They even have a high chair! And a porta-crib! It's all here. Love love LOVE this house. Thank you, Mr. & Mrs. McKee for entrusting your wonderful home in us. We cannot wait to return. :)
