Why Eric Platt chose Townsite

At the time, this was one of the few beachfront properties that were available for sale. It was and still is a Vintage Beachfront Property that retains that Vintage beachfront charm.

What makes this Apartment unique

50 feet to the water. This unit is more private and secluded that other units.

                                                              We loved the view and how we could walk everywhere. The house had everything we needed. We will most definitely go back!

                                                              Great location and space. Love being able to open the French designed doors to the patio space and to hear the ocean day and night. Kitchen has all the cooking, dinnerware and glassware one needs to execute a nice meal. Responsive owner and caretaker. We will be returning!

                                                              Awesome pet friendly location! Perfect for a party of 2!

                                                              LORI S.

                                                              We were looking for a location that was pet friendly as well as being able to bring our 2 dogs to restaurants, pubs, etc. WE LOVE THIS LOCATION! You couldn't get closer to the waves without being in the water. The apartment was dog friendly (even with a boxer!) and the town was cozy and friendly! We started to hear the train after the 3rd day, which honestly was quite frequent. Would suggest ear plugs if you are a light napper during the day. We didn't hear the train at night.

                                                              The location on the strand was great - toward the end where most of the traffic detoured from, but close enough to be in the action. Very walkable area and safe at night.

                                                              The best part of this rental was that it accommodated 2 people. It was very hard to find an oceanfront place that wasn't 5 bedrooms, sleeping 20 people. There are 2 other rentals on the property, so definitely room to expand if your party is larger, but thank you for being able to find a place for a small party! We were very discouraged that we wouldn't be able to find a smaller place on the water - would definitely rent from Eric again! Can't say enough great things about the location, the design, just.plain.coolness!

                                                              I had a wonderful, peaceful and relaxing stay.

                                                              I was very pleased with the accommodations of my stay at the cottage, unit B. It was exactly as explained, there were no surprises and I will be returning very soon. The bed was very comfortable, the location at the south end of the strand was perfect as it did not have all the traffic however still close enough to the action if you chose to venture out. I would also like to share with the single woman whom travel alone, I felt very safe arriving late in the evening. Great outdoor lighting for your security.

                                                              Great Stay!!!

                                                              This place is great!

                                                              It's waterfront and you could swim but it's a 10m walk or so to the actual sandy beach.

                                                              This place is a small apartment with a great location. It's perfect for a couple but I personally wouldn't bring my kids unless they were small kids.

                                                              Walking distance to stores, restaurants and a 20m walk to the pier.

                                                              I loved this little place! It was comfortable and clean and had anything we needed to chairs, boogie boards, towels and beach umbrellas!

                                                              I'd stay again and hope to do so and rent all 3 of Eric's places and bring some family!

                                                              READ signs for parking. Each side of the street has different rules!

                                                              We were warned to look for these signs. But failed to realize each side of the street has different rules for parking and we ended up getting a ticket.

                                                              This is our fault! Just be aware and read the signs for whatever side of the street you're parking on!

                                                              Thanks for a great place!

                                                              Loved our Vacation!

                                                              We were able to book this beauty last minute right before Labor Day weekend, and without some crazy time limit of how long we had to stay and for the price a day it's absolutely perfect. I loved having the doors open at night to listen to the waves because the ocean is feet away. You do walk a very very short way to the stairs to the beach and then your on one of the prettiest beaches around. Most everything is in walking distance. The condo was clean and modest. Loved how vintage it is. Has body boards to use and umbrellas that was great! Would go back here to stay again no doubt. Thank you for a wonderful vacation stay.
