About the property

Gotta LIVE In It to Believe It. But view the pictures & whet your appetite.

Welcome to your salt air paradise. At 4 ACES there is room for the entire family to enjoy your beach vacation and make memories. Enjoy the Ocean views from the porches, rent paddle boards and celebrate the surf.

~ 4 Bedrooms / 3 full Bathrooms / Washer&Dryer

~ In Season rental goes Saturday Arrival and Saturday Departure; the rest of the year is flexible.

Merely a few footsteps across the dead-end street to the beach (maybe 400?-- I lost count as soon as I smelled the Ocean Air and Heard & Saw the waves). Near local restaurants, seafood markets and ice cream! Short drive to grocery stores.

Pet friendly!

Very nice layout with plenty of room -just a half block from the beach

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful place to meet all of our children and grandchildren in one place. The kitchen was well equipped with lots of room and the AC kept everything very comfortable. 3 full baths made it very easy for everyone. Loved this place and would go back next time😎👍🏄🏽☀️

Owner's Response: Some People simply don't give Five Stars, although their text reads as Five Star. That's Human Nature. Unknown at the time, Traveler was unaware that I rated him and his stay as Five Star. NO PROBLEM; many people who read our Reviews are drawn to a Non-Five-Star, so that's actually Good for us!

Great place to stay even in December!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time visiting Surf City after Christmas. Our family, 6 adults and our dog, had plenty of room to spread out in the living room and bedrooms. The house was clean and the furniture was very comfortable . The kitchen had everything we needed for several home cooked meals.

We really liked the short walk to the beach, and hope to return in warmer weather!

Thanks for a great week!

Comfortable and serene

  • 4 of 5

The place has a good amount of room. The beds and couches were comfortable. We had all the utensils we needed. There are nice relaxing views of the ocean from the deck and the chairs are tall for good viewing. It is a great location to stay on the island if you want to be near the beach but away from the crowds.

The carpet could use a good cleaning but otherwise the place was very clean. And some of the blinds need to be replaced, but everything else worked just fine. I had contact with the owners and they both appeared to be very nice people.

We really enjoyed our time at the beach house and definitely would consider staying there again.

Our second stay at this beautiful beach house that serves our needs

  • 5 of 5

First off if you ever get a chance to talk to Steve on the phone he will make you feel welcome and answer any of your questions you have with your stay and will listen to your concerns you might have before your booking or stay.

The beach house is perfect for your stay as it is on a dead end road and the beach is a short walk across the road.

The surrounding area is nice and quiet and all your needs are just a short drive down the road

There is plenty of room in the house and the kitchen has plenty of space and is very convenient

It’s just nice to stay at this place as you don’t have to drive to the beach or look for a laundromat and can fix all your meals at home without eating out much if at all

I could go on and on about this place and the area as this was our second year to stay here and you can’t go wrong making this place your go to vacation and we look forward to our third stay in 2018

Thank you Steve
