                                                      John H.Canton, Ma

                                                      Just completed a one week stay this home which is a perfect location for everything. Had many plans before arriving but ended up enjoying the home and private beach most of all. We entertained on the massive deck and had more than enough room for our kids and friends. Spent almost everyday at private beach so never crowded. We had overnight guests as the arrangements of bedrooms and baths and outdoor shower accommodated all. Lots of room for parking. Quiet street allowed for bike riding and large backyard allowed many long wiffle ball tournaments for all ages. Highly recommended for families with young or even teen children, or two small families. Looking forward to next year!

                                                      Great house, repeated renters

                                                      Robert B.

                                                      Just checked in and finding the new deck and furnature a nice addition. We've been coming here for a week of golf for the last 7 years and have always been happy with the accomadations. Plenty of space in the 3+ bedrooms and 2 baths for 6 grown men to stay comfortably. Would highly recommend this property.

                                                      Fabulous family home , Comfortable, Clean, Great spot for kids

                                                      grace g.

                                                      spent 3 weeks last summer this house is great. The location is perfect. MY kids could ride the bikes on this quiet street which connects to Belmar and Great Harbors through a paper dirt street. Very family friendly safe lots of kids who then came and visited at the rental Large yard we hosted several barbeques and baseball games great family fun. 1/3 mile walk to the private beach which is great used only by the association members so it never gets to crowded, boardwalk to beach and volleyball net for the kids.

                                                      My smaller children loved the bayside, less ocean Nantucket sound waves, and the kids were able to shell and use small inflatables. Beautiful viewing of boats entering and going out to sea

                                                      Awesome huge deck with really comfortable patio furniture, and loungers. Outdoor hot/cold shower right on the

                                                      deck . This deck is accessible right of the kitchen which is spacious fully equipped well appointed with cooking items and utensil. Large fridge perfect to accommodate lots of food and BEER, there is also a small fridge in the garage which we used for overflow items very handy

                                                      Very Comfortable interior, all hardwood floors and tile, easy for clean up.

                                                      Lovely Four poster King Bed in the first floor bedroom. Window AC in all bedrooms and the dining room.

                                                      Honestly we very rarely had to use the ac as the location of the house between the 2 ponds provides perfect

                                                      summer breezes

                                                      1st full tile bath. plenty of linens and beach towels..

                                                      Large living room big comfy couch and a couple of comfy chairs our family was able to sit and watch a movie together,

                                                      The kids preferred to watch TV in the adjacent room next to the living room which has a queen size pull out sofa and screen door to the deck, Often the kids preferred to camp out and have sleepovers in this room.

                                                      2nd floor spacious clean tile tub and large bathroom. 2 large bedrooms upstairs. the Master has a comfy large king size bed and very spacious we had our 2 year old in the room with us as there is also a single bed in the room. The other bunk room across the hall was perfect for my sister in laws family .2 full bed and 2 singles they were very comfortable all together.

                                                      Large Dining room table open to the kitchen but we had most of our meals outside on the sunny deck.

                                                      Rebooked this year for only 2 weeks looking forward to it.

                                                      Owners were awesome, helpful and always available by phone they were very attentive :)

                                                      Great location, inside of house not nice

                                                      This property is in a great location within walking distance to a beautiful beach. The house is nice and big and has a wonderful back deck and back yard and the owner was responsive to questions and issues we had during our rental. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed in the condition and cleanliness of the house including the furniture, sheets, towels and kitchen utensils and refrigerator. All the furniture is very dated and appears unclean. We had to put sheets down on everything before we would sit. The sheets are also very old and worn and the kitchen utensils were sparse and unclean. The refrigerator is very old and while it may be clean, it is very rusty and appears dirty. For the price, I think the house should be furnished with updated/clean furniture and the sheets, towels, etc. should be newer and clean. We will not rent this property again for these reasons.

                                                      Awesome family getaway
