"What a great property! My family rented the entire house and we couldn't be more pleased. The best part was definitely the cabana and backyard in general. It's like having a living room outside! Having a fridge, tv & sink outside is genius! We spend 90% of our time in the cabana or backyard, even on the one day it rained. Fenced in and paved, it was safe for my toddler to play and private. With multiple seating areas, we could all be happy outside- in the shade or in the sun! Showering the sand off is easier with two outdoor showers, but there is a bathtub on the first floor to thoroughly rinse off a wiggly toddler! The house was clean and had all the modern conveniences we needed (except a washer/dryer, but there's a laundromat a few blocks away, so this wasn't a huge problem.) The owners were extremely helpful, responsive & attentive to our needs. In fact, when a patio umbrella broke, they immediately delivered a new one (driving through a thunderstorm) and even bought us a delicious locally-made pie! (Thanks Mike & Sharon!) The master bedroom (2nd floor) was large enough for us to put a cot (owner provided) in the room for our toddler. The other 4 bedrooms aren't huge, but were perfect for what we needed. Window a/c is available, but not always necessary with the beach breeze. Conveniently, the location is only a block away from the bay beach with covered benches and a playground, and we rode bikes to the ocean everyday, sometimes going back & forth several times with no problem. I heartily recommend this property for a large family- two kitchens & dining/living spaces made it perfect for breakfasts where we weren't all fighting to use the stove & sink at the same time. Also, Surf City is situated so that it is really easy to get on and off the island if necessary. A bit quieter than Beach Haven, it's perfect for safe bike rides along Barneget, Central & Sunset. Yet there's still plenty to do, to eat & to see within close proximity. I look forward to returning."
