Beautiful Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

We just loved this beach house. We booked it for a long weekend (3 couples). We were ready to book our next vacation there after the first day. Beautifully decorated and the master bathroom is large and well laid out. Clean and as described. Close to the beach with an access road in the neighborhood. It was perfect and the property manager stopped by to introduce herself and make sure we were getting settled in. We had friends stay in another house not far away and the had to go through the hassle of going to a real estate office to get their key and meet their property manager. Sandra came to us which meant we got to get our stay started sooner than our friends. We will be back!

This is our second stay in "It's a Shore Thing"; and, as I anticipated, we were NOT disappointed!! This house is beautiful, in a great location, and has absolutely everything you need to enjoy a stress-free vacation. A huge thank you to the owners for opening their home to families like ours! An added bonus that we have loved the last two years that you certainly won't get through your ordinary rental company is the Property Manager, Sandy. From the beginning of the reservation process right up until the time you check out, she is the epitome of professionalism and lets you know she is there to solve any problem with the house that may arise or if there is anything you should need. Thankfully, everything has been perfect and we haven't needed her but we always knew she was either a phone call or text away if we had. I would highly recommend this house and can't wait to be back myself!

Vacation Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have vacationed twice now at "It's a Shore Thing" and have totally enjoyed everything about our stay. The property manager had everything in perfect order for our arrival and departure, and the furnishing are absolutely beautiful (first class furnishings and accommodations)! The bedrooms (two on one side of the house with a lovely bathroom) and the master bedroom has a beautiful large bathroom on the opposite side of the house. We enjoyed relaxing on the balconies and had a nice view of the beach from the front balcony. It's an easy walk to the beach. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it highly to my friends.

Brought my entire family for a week of rest and relaxation and we got that and more!!!! Weather was wonderful even with the rain, kids totally enjoyed property and riding in the golf cart. The large porches afforded our 2 year old grandsons a wonderful place to play independently,yet under our watchful eye!!! Our hostess was unbelievalably helpful yet gave us our space. We will definitely rent this property again!!! Hope we can stand to wait until next summer!!!!
