                                                                  My family and enjoyed this home for 4 days just last week. loved everything about it! Doug is easy to work with and quick to respond. we loved our stay and would stay again!

                                                                  Beautiful home! Perfect for family and friend gatherings!

                                                                  Kathryn H.

                                                                  This home is so comfortable and beautifully furnished with many amenities included (bikes, board and beach games, video games, etc) . The kitchen had everything imaginable making large family breakfasts and dinners easy to prepare. We felt like we had our own private beach. We rode bikes to the boardwalk and a local coffee each afternoon. This house and location is everything you dream of when planning a multi-family vacation. I highly recommend it!

                                                                  Amazing Weekend!

                                                                  Parker R.

                                                                  Wow! This house is an absolute beauty, the pictures don't begin to do it justice. We had a large group of 12 stay for the weekend and the house perfectly accommodated our group. There was plenty of room to socialize, eat, and sleep. Doug was super responsive before and during the trip making it much easier to plan. We'll definitely be going back!

                                                                  Wonderful home and owner

                                                                  Kimberly P.

                                                                  Our extended family had a wonderful time. The home has lovely with decks all around and plenty of beach chairs and toys. The owner, Doug, was extremely accommodating and checked in after arrival to make sure we were all set. Hope to return next September!

                                                                  Best beach house!


                                                                  Awesome... we had a group of Mom's and daughters... we brought toys, chairs, games, etc but did not need any of it as the house was already set up with all of that... the girls had a blast in the rec room area and the moms could keep an eye/ear on them while sitting in the open living room. The kitchen was also great for a large group-- they have everything. This home is beautiful and has so many thoughtful extras-- not at all like other rentals. It is also steps to the beach and easy and quick to get to Bethany and OCMD. We cannot wait to go back.

                                                                  Perfect beach rental home!

The house is fully stocked with everything that you could want or need. Perfect layout and beautifully decorated! By far, the best rental property I have ever stayed in. The owner responds to email quickly and answers any questions you may have. Don't miss the opportunity to stay here!!!
