About Mikki & Joe Huss

We love this house so much & we named it 'Family Matters' because that's been our philosophy for our 50 year marriage. We purchased this comfortable, spacious ocean front home in 2004. We keep it well maintained. We always ask our guests what we can do to make staying at our beach house better & try to comply (within reason!) It has been a wonderful place for many families to gather & create memories. (especially ours!) The sunrises on the beach are incredible! Just relax or walk along the surf & enjoy the waves. Sometimes we catch porpoises frolicking in the water. It's a wonderful place to kick back & enjoy!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

House was very nice and spacious and well maintained and very clean. 10 people of all ages stayed and had ample room. All beds were comfortable. The back porch overlooks the pool and beach and had comfortable rocking chairs. It was very convenient and nice to have a pool and be so close to the beach. The beach is busy but not crowded as the bigger hotels are further down. Everyone had a great time. We will definitely go back

Great Place!!!!

My family rented this home for Thanksgiving 2017. It was neat and clean. Each room had a bathroom. There was an additional sitting area with a TV that was perfect for the kids. The house had everything we needed and more!

Great Beach House

  • 4 of 5

Spent Labor Day week in Family Matters with 8 adults and 8 grandchildren 5 and under. House was large enough to accommodate everyone without any inconvenience. Mikki checked on us mid-week to make sure we were all good. The pictures don't give you a great feel for how roomy this house is. Plenty of space for large families! We enjoyed the deck for morning sunrises followed by evening relaxing and conversations after the kids were bedded down. They have pool service that cleaned the pool and trash service that emptied the canisters. Just go relax around the pool or amble over the boardwalk to the spacious beach. We do a large family vacation every 2 years and we look forward to booking this home again!!

Family Matters

  • 4 of 5

The private pool was great. The pool maintenance person came 3 times while we were there for a week so the pool always looked fresh and clean. House is very spacious. The wifi worked great. Being oceanfront is definitely the best feature of this house. Each bedroom had a private bathroom which worked out wonderfully. The upstairs had 4 bedrooms and a sitting area with TV. The washer and dryer were located upstairs which was convenient. Ceiling fans and TV in all bedrooms and family room. The upstairs had a separate thermostat control than from downstairs.

Just a few recommendations: Need more than 1 key when multiple people are staying. Need to go through the kitchen and get rid of some things. Cupboards are cluttered and things are mismatched. New pots and pans would be a good idea. Owner did offer to reimburse me if we went to a local store and purchased new skillets, but we only had a couple days left so we didn't do that. Pool lights did not come on until around 9pm but it got dark around 7:15 - 7:30pm. Could not get the gas grill to work. Porch facing the ocean was a little crowded with furniture. Family room could use more seating. The 2 couches are awesome but when you have more than 4 people staying it doesn't work very well.

We would definitely rent Family Matters again in the future. The owners were awesome and called us to make sure everything was going ok. We were there 2 weeks after Hurricane Matthew and the place was cleaned up and ready when we arrived. Thanks Mikki Huss for sharing your home with us.
