My Family Week at the Beach

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd consecutive year renting this property and we are totally satisfied is why we keep coming back. We are a family of 6 adults + 5 children between the ages of 2 and 7. The property is perfectly suited for our needs and then some. The property is in fine shape and excellently maintained with plenty of space for everyone to do their thing. The sun rooms are especially comfortable and the dining table is large enough for all at the same time. There are toys, games and videos for the children and conveniences such as a grill and a wagon to haul things to the beach. The property is close to the beach and also convenient to Ocean City and/or Bethany and Rehobeth. When we return to the beach in the future, we will stay at this property again if available.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We have 4 married children and 4 grandchildren under the age of 5. There was plenty of room and the house was situated nicely. There were children's toys that could be taken to the beach, along with wading pools if they didn't like the beach. It was an easy access house to activities and events. We did find that the kitchen lacked a large frying pan, and an added larger coffee pot and a hot tub would be a wonderful addition to this house. Would stay here again.

The blind in downstairs bedroom was falling down when we arrived. Definitely not a big deal. Just wanted to let them know it was as like that when we arrived. Loved the home. Or text for families with small children. Will be back. Thank you

Great house in perfect condition. Steps from the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We are a large family and there is room to spare in this house. The house is beautiful and conducive for cooking, dining, and relaxing together with spacious indoor and outdoor living areas. Also conducive to getting some quiet time in your own room. Very short walk to not crowded (understatement) beach. I love how quiet and laid back this area is. This was our second time for Tingles' Timeout, and we would definitely come back. The owner is nearby and responsive, although we have never needed anything once we've arrived.

Great for multiple generations of family members

  • 5 of 5

Stayed June, 2016

We loved staying in this house. We had a family reunion with three generations of relatives and it was wonderful. There was enough room for all and more than enough to do so close to the beach. Even though the house is on a main thoroughfare, when you're upstairs in the living area, you can't hear a thing. The home is very sound proof. There were some small issues and a call to the owners brought instant results. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat. The beach is a quick walk out the back door, through a gate, and down a road to the beach. If you have small children you don't have to worry about traffic. And with an outside shower, rinsing off sand before you go inside is super easy. The home is big enough and comfortable enough for a long stay.
