The place was beautiful & atmosphere perfect! Our Annual Off Site could not have gone any better !

  • 5 of 5

The Atmosphere was the best we ever had for our Annual Off site meeting. It was informal and no one went on their laptops / cell phones since we did not sit at a table but sat in the Theater room. Everyone participated in the meetings and thus, we were very productive on the goals / vision for future planning. Very nice place !!

Good not great

  • 3 of 5

The house is spacious. The temperature control in the house is poor. Some of the bedrooms were very hot and others were frigid. It is a comfortable house with decent appliances. The beds and pillows are of very poor quality and the carpet is dirty. I would say that the house was pretty clean in terms of the cleaning crew who cleaned before we arrived. Overall 3 stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Owner's Response: Dear Fran, Thank you for your feedback. The owners have been addressing the air conditioning, however some of the main repairs cannot be done until the off season. They already replaced one of the units. The carpets unfortunately get dirty throughout the summer and the owners do have them cleaned prior to the season and we are working on getting them cleaned more frequently throughout the year as needed. The owners have placed beds of a variety of softness levels in the house and are replacing the pillows in the off season again. Thank you again for your feedback as our goal is to have all expectations met. 1st Choice Rental Team

Fantastic for large groups looking for an authentic and luxurious beach experience

  • 5 of 5

We just hosted a family reunion over Memorial Weekend at this place, and it was just perfect!

The house itself is thoughtfully designed for entertaining large families. Everything from the two story family room with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the sea, to a beautiful deck ideal for gathering to a well appointed kitchen, and finally plenty bedrooms, many with balconies overlooking the sea. And yes, the hot tub worked marvelously to wear out travel fatigue for our out-of-state guests.

The property management company, especially Christine, was very helpful in ensuring we had an overall smooth experience. Just two examples of how resourceful: she was nice enough to show us the place while we were still looking to select a venue for our reunion, and she arranged for linen, towel, and beach chair rental for an extra price delivered straight to the place, thus maximizing our precious vacation time spent at the beach house.

All in all, we would be thrilled to come back here for another reunion!

Beach Villa

  • 3 of 5

Great location.Plenty of room for a large group.Pool table was a big hit.

Unfortunately,the property has not been well maintained. Carpets and bathroom rugs needed a good cleaning as did kitchen cabinets.Some bed covers were missing and air conditioning was very uneven.

The decks definitely needed work with splinters and peeling paint.Overpriced for condition of property.

Owner's Response: These concerns have been addressed; new improved cleaning program has been implemented, including frequent steaming of carpet throughout the home. This was an anomalous occurrence and was immediately addressed by changing the cleaning service management team. UPDATE FOR SUMMER 2016!! Beautiful New Timbertech Decks have been installed! Pictures to come soon.

Great place

  • 4 of 5

I celebrated my 50th b-day with about a dozen other friends between 40-70 and it was the perfect space for it. Plenty of room, plenty of activities- so close to the beach- was wonderful. Would love to return! Also easy to get to Bethany, Fenwich and OC for day trips a

Wonderful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time staying at this beautiful beach house. We have a large family and this house accommodated us easily. It is clean and very well equipped, which we greatly appreciated because we cooked most of our meals in. The house is spacious but has a homey feel to it. I had the pleasure of meeting the owner, Mr. Fontana, who is an absolute pleasure to talk to and it really made us appreciate even more that he and his family share their beautiful beach home with perfect strangers!!

The house is right on the beach with easy access and hardly any one else on the beach with you, which is wonderful because Bethany beaches can get very crowded! We would definitely like to return next summer!!
