  • This is the perfect place to relax......you will not want to leave! Loved it!

    "We just spent a fabulous week at Novelty Cottage. Our four children are scattered all across the country so we were eager to have a place to gather together and that would allow us room to spread out. There were seven adults and one infant and the house could not possibly have been more pleasant or suitable. Just walking in the front door you get a feeling of peacefulness with the light blue and khaki decor and an incredible view of the ocean. The home does not have that bland, rental feeling, but is very well appointed and cared for. The furnishings are elegant and functional, but don’t make you feel you can’t relax and be comfortable. The kitchen has every cooking implement imaginable. We gave everyone a night to cook and had a great experience, since it was so well stocked and the drawers and cupboards are labeled with what goes where, which makes it easy to put things away. Allows for more time on the beach! I also appreciated that the dishes and silverware were not a mish-mash of different styles and patterns, but the owners work hard to keep it all matching and there is plenty for a large group. The table can look so pretty! Never thought we would need the TWO dishwashers, but boy was I wrong! The sleeping accommodations are comfortable and roomy with bathrooms attached to every bedroom. Clean and fresh bedding matching the decor. Very secure patio doors, even on the ground floor. Nice media room, although we didn’t make much use of it – preferring to play games at the dining room table, which overlooked the ocean. Plenty of good books and games are provided as well. Beach access via a short boardwalk path is easy. The deck has plenty of rocking chairs to enjoy the sunrise and sunsets. We even found two masseuses that were willing to come give massages on the deck, which we will all remember fondly! There is a grocery store just a few minutes away and several good restaurants and shops in the area. Bike riding and the community pool allows for activity off the beach. In short, it was the best week at the beach that we have ever had and we fully intend to return in the near future. If you’re considering renting this for a week, by all means do it. The owners are wonderful to work with. They kindly answered all the questions we had before arriving. We never needed to use their handyman for anything, but they make his contact number fully available. You will not be disappointed with this beautiful home!"

  • Beautiful Ocean Front Duplex

    "My family and I spent two weeks at Sea Maiden East this fall. Everyone really enjoyed the up to date furnishings and decorations. There is adequate perking for about four cars although it can be difficult to get larger cars under the house and you will need to move cars to let others out at times. The bedrooms were all nicely furnished and included ceiling fans. If you have older family members please be aware there are fair amount of steps, both inside and out and there is only one bedroom on the first floor. The bathrooms are all newly updated and extremely nice. The kitchen is nicely sized and includes most everything you could want for beach cooking. The beach is very nice in this area of the island and is just a short distance from the ocean deck. The owners were very easy to work with and responded to all of our questions and made the process go very smoothly. I highly recommend this beach home for your vacation!"

Very close to restaurants and grocery shopping. The room was clean and fully equipped. Very safe area. We are looking forward to next year already!!! Even when things went wrong Carol made it right! Or package was late arriving to us and we missed that we needed to bring sheets for the pull out. They were supplied no questions!!

  • Great Location for the Whole Family!

    "Looking for a beach house that can accommodate a large group where everyone can find something they love to do? This is it! The house was perfect for our group, located in a quiet subdivision close to the beach and bike path. One of our favorite activities was taking a bike ride into town to try out the different ice cream shops. We also loved how close the beach was, just a short walk away. The owners even provide an awesome cart that rolls easily on pavement and sand to haul chairs, toys, etc. (which they also provide)! We made good use of the large dining table for cards and board games after dinner and loved having the option of a gas grill and charcoal grill. The owners were very responsive, even checking in with us after our first day to make sure we had everything we needed. I can't say enough about this experience. If you're considering this one, do it!"
