This was our family's second stay at this fabulous home, and what you see is what you get! Everything is as pictured, and described. Lisa was a pleasure to deal with, and very responsive when we did encounter an issue with the ice maker on the freezer door. Service was arranged promptly, and the issue was repaired.

The 6 bicycles came in handy, a it is a short distance to the beach, and main part of town. Another great advantage was having Hocker's, (supermarket), directly across from the complex. The complex is safe, gated, and quiet, with a pool, playground, tennis courts, and a fitness room.

Only thing that could be improved would be to provide a parking pass, as parking in town can become quite expensive.

Would absolutely recommend this property, as I know we will be returning for our third visit!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind review! I wish parking passes were available to purchase as we would be the first in line! They are solely available for those living in the parameters of the town of BB. Please come again! You are a pleasure to deal with. Lisa

Perfect spot for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay for our larger group with 2 small children. Your beautiful, spacious house set the stage for a great family get away.

The pools and playground were a perfect spot for my 2 granddaughters, A lovely, private community with friendly neighbors too! Just a 2 minute ride to the beach. Having the bikes, boogie boards, floats , and beach toys right in the garage was awesome- everything anyone could need for vacation was there. The boys also challenged the girls to Ping Pong, as there is a full size table in the garage. It was so nice to come home to this gorgeous retreat at night.

The house and each of the rooms are all clean, spacious and well furnished. It even has lots of contemporary books, games, and videos for children. Don't be mislead by the term " Loft". The loft is a furnished room off one of the bedrooms that can be a bedroom, or upstairs game or reading room. All in all, a perfect place for a family vacation at the beach. we will definitely be back!

Thank you, thank you, Lisa for sharing your home with us. We made some great memories!

Great Family Trip - Perfect House for All Ages

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at the house. Last year it was friends and my kids (friends were couples in their late 20's/early 30's - kid's were 2 and <1). This year the kids were 3 and 1 and we had grandparents, and siblings (mid 20's and 30's) = 9 people in total. PLENTY of space.

The house has everything you need. New cornhole/bags set in the garage. Ping pong table. Two grills (only downside is that they are charcoal and not gas). Tennis rackets and balls are provided. Beach equipment (chairs, umbrella, roll cart, floats, boogie boards, etc.) are provided. Bikes are provided with 3 bike locks. We used all of these things. They were fantastic.

There are games in the house (Disney Trivial Pursuit), along with old VHS Disney tapes and a 'private' room for the kids to watch.

The kitchen is fully loaded with utensils for inside and outside. They even have a griddle in the closet that makes cooking breakfast easy.

There is a front porch perfect for hanging out to play cards or enjoying a cigar.

There is a private office on the ground floor that I used in the mornings to take care of some work items. The internet was incredibly fast on both the computer and all of our cell phones.

The beds are comfortable. Last year we stayed in the master suite with king bed. The tub worked great for the kids both years. The shower stall had good water pressure.

We have zero complaints and plan to come back a third time. Communication with the owner was fast/easy/consistent. We even forgot something at the house that is getting shipped back to us.

STAY HERE and you'll be very HAPPY.

Great Beach Home!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect home for our entire family to spend quality time together! Loved the decor and bright colors. Spacious and clean bedrooms, bathrooms, large kitchen and living areas. The kids loved the loft!

We would drive to the beach in the morning (so easy to get to and park); and spend the afternoon at the pool. The best of both worlds. Spent time bicycling, going to the playground nearby and taking oh so many walks across the bridge and pond! The kids loved seeing deer, chickens, and rabbits around the perimeter of the community. The adult children made daily runs to the local Starbucks and Grotto's Pizza. It was a pleasure to work with Lisa. She was readily available to answer all questions and was most accommodating. Thank you for opening your home to all of us! Loved it! We all voted "yes" to return!

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Firstly, thank you again Lisa! The pictures do not do this house justice. The place is huge. There is an enormous attention to detail from a decoration standpoint.

We had 4 couples (8 adults) and two children under two years of age and traveled down from CT/NY. There was plenty of room for all of us with plenty of room to spare. The kitchen has everything you need. They provide a Keurig and additional coffee machine. They provided an independent griddle where we made large breakfasts in the morning. We used the dishwasher, washer and dryer wish ease. Bathrooms were incredibly clean and they also had good water pressure. The charcoal grill with charcoal tower was used numerous times. One important item to note that was not in the description was that the house has a ping pong table! We played ping pong numerous times after getting back from the pool/beach/tennis courts. Very fun.

The pool keys and bikes (and locks) were easily accessible. The house is in a gated community and the pool was essentially our own for 4 days (not many of the locals or other people renting within the community used the pool). It was phenomenal.

For those with kids, there is a playground right next to the pool. My (almost) two year old spent hours on that playground. She also spent hours in the kid pool next to the larger pool. This location is incredibly kid friendly.

We also rode bikes to the beach (about a 5 to 8 minute ride) and to downtown/boardwalk area (same distance). Lisa provides 3 locks which we used with ease.

We will definitely be coming back. Everything was incredibly enjoyable and Lisa was a great host. Thanks again!
