We are three blocks from the beach, a perfect distance for a nice stroll or power walk. We are also two blocks from the Sea Isle Marina where there is much going on including a restaurant called West End, Bar and Grill, games, a swimming pool, free boat ramp, tennis courts, convenience store and outdoor bar (There is usually live music there on the weekends in the summer months) . In addition, there is a bait shop that sells live bait at the Sea Isle Marina. There is a wide, new lighted fishing pier in Sea Isle for owners and guests to use day and night. It is free; you will have a key as our house guest. We require guests to sign an agreement that they will use the pier at their own risk, as there is no supervision for the pier.
Guests can purchase a pass to the swimming pool at the Mariana. It is $50 for up to 10 people for an entire week and opens Memorial Day. Our guests can launch a boat from the Sea Isle Marina.

Great Location and Responsive Owners
Fred was super easy to communicate with. The house is great with a nice outdoor sitting area. If you're feeling ambitious it is a nice walk to the beach, but I would recommend driving or renting a golf cart.
The space is a little smaller than the pictures look, but we had ten (10) people stay here and didn't have any issues. Parts of the property have definitely aged and could use some repairs.
The fenced in backyard was nice to have for our dog and we met the neighbors (who were also really nice).
Overall I would recommend staying here. Good owners, location, and amenities (marina, fishing dock, bait shop, pool, etc.).
Fun Fourth of July with Family!
We had a wonderful vacation at this home! The owner was great - responsive and gave all the important info regarding the home ahead of time. The area was great - pool we used and a short drive to the beach. The area's golf cart parade was really fun! The house setup worked very well for us- we had one area with our little one and my in-laws had their own. Would recommend!
We had a great stay here. The owner was pleasant to talk to and get everything set up. The house was clean and as advertised. It has 2 separate living areas as described in the tittle. it worked out good for us since one of the couples had a small child. All in all we liked and and will probably be back.
House is exactly like the pics. Backyard is really nice and great for your pets. The Sea Isle community is really nice with a pool, pier, store, bait shop, marina, and restaurant. Beach is across the street. You really don't need to go anywhere else for vacation. Rain and a trip to the emergency room (got hooked while fishing) cut our trip short, but we would return.
Quiet, no traffic, ready access to neighborhood pool and beach, quick-stop just a minute away, full service grocery/market 5 min away. Fenced backyard great for kids/pets, including playscape w. slide. Large, well furnished gazebo, ideal for entertaining. Also fish cleaning counter and sink, and large charcoal grill. Uverse tv a plus. Photos and description very accurate.
Owner most cooperative and went out of his way to arrange for our visit on very short notice.
Overall, a very pleasant, relaxing experience.
Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us. We really enjoyed our stay and plan on returning soon. We especially loved the backyard for both the dogs and ourselves. The owners were especially easy to work with. The house is designed in such a manner that it is like having two houses for the price of one!!!! The subdivision is a short walk to the beach, and inludes a fishing pier, park,communnity pool, tennis courts and resturant and bar, so there's no reason to even leave the area.
