Just about 20 steps to the sand! The 'Glad' House is 5 Bedrooms. 2.5 baths and sleeps 8 - 10 people comfortably. It's called the GLAD HOUSE because you are always glad to get there!

Before reading on please note the following: We love kids :) but do not allow kids ages under age 7. Non-walking babies are ok. This is due to balconies, roof deck and hot tub.

Thank you! Now more about the GLAD HOUSE! The house is freshly renovated - with renovation just completed. It is designed and set-up for comfort, entertaining and complete relaxation. Everything you need from beach chairs, towels, cooking supplies, bar supplies are ready to go. You just need to bring your bathing suit and some groceries!

The house is decorated in a modern, yet cozy beach style. The kitchen is gourmet, 'foodie approved' and fully equipped with high-end appliances, spices, wine fridge and espresso coffee bar.

During your stay, you can expect to find everything you could possibly want or need. On top of the fully appointed kitchen, we have an amazing library of music, books, CDs, board games and children's toys for your enjoyment. Although the house is not beach front, you can enjoy an ocean view from the backyard, or roof deck, as the house is just across the street from the beach.

3 large cars will fit comfortably in driveway. Garage and laundry is not available for guests, however laundry is located at the end of the block. Extra cars are discouraged.

Neighbors are very close by and they are super-lovely. Movie industry people, artists and professionals are all around and are very dear friends. So quiet is required outside and no loud music or voices, as we all love our peaceful enjoyment of the sound of the waves. Smoking is not allowed anywhere near the house and neither are pets, so you can enjoy a super-clean environment for the relaxing time you need! If you are a smoker, maybe choose a different house.

Our house is unique because of the beautiful, peaceful, vibe that everyone reports who have stayed there. Total relaxation, peace and love fills our house. We feel it and know you will too!

The max in the house is 10. No little ones under 7 - no exceptions, sorry! The occupancy max is due to noise levels and nearby neighbors. The little kids rule - too many fun things to climb and get into -- we love them but ages under 7 are the TERMINATOR years, we know - we had them too!

Most wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing house, amazing location, amazing host, AMAZING EXPERIENCE! Kerri, the home owner, has thought of absolutely everything here. She makes you feel so at home, and at the same time, so pampered! Not to mention, she is a wonderful tour director... she had perfect recommendations for us of places to see, things to do, places to eat. The only thing wrong with this picture is that we didn't have enough time there. Thank you, Kerri, for a family girls' getaway that won't be forgotten! :)

July Fourth Stay at the Glad House

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the "Glad House" for several days over the July 4th holiday weekend. The neighborhood is a great beach neighborhood with friendly neighbors. This nicely decorated house had plenty of room and bedrooms for our family of 7 adults and had everything we needed to cook or grill, watch tv or play games. The rooftop sitting area was especially great to watch the area fireworks! It was a short walk across the street to the beach, and we made use of the beach chairs, umbrella and "toys." The beach was never crowded, not even with the extra holiday crowd. We had so much fun riding the colorful beach bikes, and the neighbors were so friendly even as to take some pictures for us! We also enjoyed the hot tub in the yard with an elevated sitting area that had a view toward the beach despite some new construction. I would recommend the Glad House for a relaxed and memorable vacation anytime. We hope to return and enjoy the home again someday. Thanks Kerri for sharing your wonderful vacation home.
