My boyfriend and I went down for a week with our families and we all really enjoyed ourselves. It is a very beautiful and well kept house and we are already talking about going down again next year.It is kid friendly, they have lots of toys and games, and if you're an avid reader they have lots of different books to read.

Memorial Day weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was an absolutely beautiful home and the owner was so nice and accommodating. It felt like we were right at home staying there. The house was only 2.5 blocks to the beach and boardwalk which was convenient since we had a bunch of young children. The front porch was relaxing as was the back. The owner even had toys for the kids and a Mickey Mouse room which our boys loved. Every room had a tv and very comfortable beds as well. The house had central air which we didn't need to use because the weather was pretty cool and breezy, but it's good to have for the hot summer months. We didn't want to go home!

Great place to stay and enjoy the beach

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nice house and is kid friendly. We had 2 families vacation together for a week and we had a wonderful time. Plenty of room for us all to sleep and no shower or bathroom issues at all. With the enclosed outside shower, my friends daughter showered herself and the kids straight from the beach while the others took turns using the main shower in the house. Not far from the beach and boardwalk. The beach chairs and tags are also a great bonus. I would definitely return to this house again. Constance is also great to work with.

Our second home!

  • 5 of 5

My family has been renting this house for 3 summers, and this fall my sisters "ran away from home" here for a weekend. It feels like home when we get here. This house is well equipped and is located close to everything. It's great that we don't have to plan where to stay every year, just what week to pick!

Our family loved the house and felt so much at home there. Though we were a lot of people it never felt over crowded even with a 2 year old. Being only a few minutes from the boardwalk and beach was a plus. First time in Ocean City and it was a great place to take a family and one of the prettiest beaches in New Jersey.
