About the property

3 plus bedrooms in wooded neighborhood close to the beach

Perfect family home in quiet Gowdy Shores. It's a short walk down our wooded path to the wide open private beach. Spend your days in the sun, the evenings by the fire in the spacious screen porch. Our quiet lanes are lovely for strolling, jogging and cycling.

Master bedroom with queen bed and en suite bathroom. Second and third bedrooms all on first floor with queen beds in each. Full bathroom with tub and shower on first floor. Additional beds ( 2 twins, one full) upstairs in the open family room are perfect for kids and teenagers. Open living/dining room and kitchen with big center island and harvest table for 10. Fully equipped open kitchen with everything you need for family meals, including high end appliances, microwave, blender and coffee maker. Weber grill on the back deck outside the kitchen and dining area. Large screen porch seating area by the fire place, and dining table and chairs for six. Deep comfy couches in living room and on the screen porch are perfect for napping. Central air conditioning, wifi, security system. 32 inch flat screen with DVR for movie nights at home.

Need a break from the beach? Head to nearby Warren Dunes State Park for a quiet walk through the woods. Pick blueberries, apples, peaches or pumpkins at local farms. Poke around the antique shops along Red Arrow Highway. Sample a pint of brew at Greenbush in Sawyer. Take the kids out for mini golf and go-carts. Our local farmer's market is a short walk away and filled with local produce, crafts and hand made goodies.

Holiday gathering

  • 5 of 5

We gathered from three different states for Thanksgiving - 9 total. The house was lovely, high cathedral ceiling, table sat us all. It met and exceeded all are needs. The neighborhood is wooded, lovely to stroll or walk to the beach. We loved the house and hope to be back some day!

A Beautiful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a week and just loved it! It is a high quality, beautifully decorated, spacious home in a nice quiet location with a short walk to the beach. It is spotless! You obviously provide your own food but other than that the kitchen has everything you need to prepare large, family meals and plenty of space to sit around a big table or out on the screened porch. The owner also provided things for the beach (chairs, sand toys, small cooler, umbrella, boogie boards). The owner was also very easy to work with. She was very easy to communicate with and met us upon arrival and showed us around the house. I would definitely recommend staying here!

Great beach home!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family. It was beautifully decorated. The open kitchen, dining, and living area was bright and comfortable. I liked that there was only one TV in the loft space so we spent more time on the large screen porch visiting and playing games. The walk to the beach was easy and the neighborhood was quaint. Union Pier is a great location because it's central to everything. The owners were very accommodating and easy to communicate with. I would definitely stay here again.
