This oceanfront home provides the luxury of the beach in your backyard, hot tub outside your room, and great entertainment in each room!

The Master:

The master bedroom is defined by the views through the glass door that overlooks the beach and ocean. This view is only mildly obscured by the 6-person hot tub located directly through the door. This hot tub has a lounge style seat and lighted waterfall. From the hot tub you will have perfect views of the beach below with the backdrop of the Atlantic. If that isn't enough the 40' TV is capable of turning to face the hot tub through the glass door, so you don't miss a thing. The bed is a king size memory foam mattress that is almost too comfortable. Finally, the master suite is accompanied by a private bathroom.

The Bunk Room:

The bunk room is book ended by to large bunk beds the kids will enjoy. The Wii is available for all renters and can be played on the 32' HD TV that is also hung with a moveable mount for optimum viewing.

Bedrooms 3&4:

These rooms are ideal for other adult or young adult travelers. Both rooms are equipped with 32' wireless internet TV (Pandora and Netflix are complimentary or sign in with your own subscriptions), king size beds with 6 built in drawers and memory foam mattresses.

The Living Room:

The living room is defined by a 55' wireless internet HDTV that is also moveable and has an HD/DVR for cable. ((All TVs in the home can access an USB thumb drive with music/video/pictures already loaded on it.)) Watch in the comfortable embrace of the sectional sofa or oversized chair.

Kitchen/Dining Room:

There is seating for 9 in the kitchen and dining area (3 bar stools, 6 dining chairs). With 2 more chairs in the Pantry next to the trash and recycling bins. Along with the Pantry there is an Utility closet. There is also a side-by-side refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, smooth-top oven, toaster oven, coffee maker, and disposal.

About Brian McNamara

My wife and I were both raised in the North East and spent some time on the West Coast as well. We can understand what it is like to live in a busy city. This is what allows us to fully appreciate the calming pace of the waves with the smiles and laughter of the people in this community.

Brian McNamara purchased this house in 2012

Why Brian McNamara chose Surf City

We decided to become a part of this community more for the people and the history but we were amazed when we found this home. My wife and I both spent a lot of time on this island even before we met, it is poetic that we are a part of the community now.

The convenience to shops, the ocean, restaurants, and all the activities are the main reasons.

What makes this house unique

Professional licensed massage therapist will come to the property for private massage and the views from the private hot tub!

Clean, comfy, and quiet!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at this house. The beds were so comfortable and the layout of the rooms was perfect for 3 families with a kids' room. The duplex is next to another duplex and in front of a few more duplexes so the parking area is very congested but this property--on the north edge-- was the furthest removed and therefore more remote feeling. The ocean is right at the bottom of the steps!

Although the kitchen could be a little better stocked with dishes, the major appliances were all handy and working. We had plenty of hot water and cool AC. The one night we had trouble with the hot tub was resolved the next day. Brian was reachable as needed for advice or questions. It's not the most spacious house for 10 people but for the price, I would certainly stay again!

Great Week at Beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in Surf City at this rental. The four bedrooms worked well for our large group. The flat screen tv's with netflicks in every room gave us a place to chill out in the evenings. The kitchen was well supplied with pots, pans, baking dishes and utensils. I especially liked the seating in the dining room/great room. Plenty of room for all around the table and the sectional sofa. The beach was just steps away and we enjoyed walks down the beach both day and night. We saw dolphins from the shoreline a couple of days. The pier was a 20 minute slow walk by oceanfront. The teenagers walked to eat and shopping. Great place for families. The owner was easily reached by e-mail. Instructions for check-in and refund of deposit was handled quickly and easily. I would rent this location again.

Easy rentals with drop off and pick-up included. I rented towels, linens, umbrella and cooler. Would rent bikes next time.
