This is a perfect spot with the beach only 2 blocks away for the surf crowd and the tranquility of the bay and marsh life for those who want to just hang out on the back deck to read or fish. Also the proximity to the city for those that want the night life.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We (my husband and another adult couple) just returned from a lovely week-long vacation on the bay. From the moment we walked into the bayhouse we were impressed. We felt as though the pictures do not do the property justice- it is very comfortable and cute. And, the neighbors are also very helpful and friendly – they made us feel like we were all one big happy community! We are looking forward to doing it again really soon!

Craig. Your home is just lovely. Very neat and clean. The Bay view was awesome! Our boys enjoyed fishing and crabbing!

I would suggest that you replace the bath mat in the shower room as soon as possible.

I was very disappointed to be staying right next to an abandoned home. A bit unsettling for all of us!

Also, the daily construction on the home 2 doors down from you was very loud each morning and my parking spot in front of your home was taken up by a construction vehicle/construction worker 5 different times during the week. I had to ask them to move their vehicle.

Both of the aforementioned, I understand are completely out of your control:(

I was also very disappointed in observing the "neighborhood" on the adjacent streets throughout the week which was not at all what I had expected while renting in Ventnor.

Owner's Response: I agree with you all of the negatives are completely out of my control and temporary. However, I am in control of my home which sounds like you and your family enjoyed thoroughly. The city of Ventnor has city parking which I provide all my renters with permits to allow them to park legally. Regarding your negative comments, I do not believe that your rating is a fair assessment of my domicile since those aspects are outside of my control and temporary.

Great Summer Spot

  • 4 of 5

Great location just as described right on the intercoastal waterway. The place was clean with a well equipped kitchen, outdoor grill and plenty of seating on the deck. Loved to spend the early evenings on the deck with a beer or margarita watching the sunset and all the birds. The owner was friendly and very accommodating. Plenty to do in the area with lots of dining variety.

Very nice and clean rental. If I could give it a 4.5 I would.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the 2 bedroom rental. There are living quarters upstairs and that should be noted in the description. We like to sing at night and rent a house so we do not disturb anybody. All pictures should be of what you get to rent including the pictures in the kitchen. All that being said Craig was very responsive to our questions. It is new and very tastefully decorated. Close to the beach, shopping and eating. We walked into Atlantic City and back. Had a wonderful time.

Owner's Response: Cheryl F., Thank you very much for your kind words regarding your stay at my rental. The pictures that were on the VRBO site were older, before Hurricane Sandy, and have been updated accordingly this year. The design and layout of the duplex has the architecture in place so that the acoustics in each living space will not intrude or interfere with each other. So rest assured when you book with me in the future you can enjoy your singing without worry. Thank you again for staying and most importantly for your feedback.

Great Family Week Down the Shore

  • 5 of 5

This two-bedroom rental was even better than it looked in the pictures. The huge deck overhangs the bay, and the owner has upgraded the furniture and installed a shade overhanging half of the deck which made it great for my kids to play on.

The space was sunny and bright, and was all that we could ask for. About 2 1/2 blocks to the beach, and walking distance to several restaurants. Craig also responded to one issue that arose promptly, and we've already rebooked for next year.
