Recent Surf City reviews

  • Relaxing trip

    "As soon as we walked in, it felt like home. It was super clean, the beds were comforty, and it had everything we could possible need. It was also close to shops, restaurants, and a playground. We can't wait to go back!"

  • Wonderful location, great house.

    "Wonderful location, great house. We hope to come back again. We had a wonderful stay over Thanksgiving break.. Having great weather obviously helped, but we would have enjoyed house and location in any case. Highly recommend. Owner quick to respond, provided great info. Just a great overall experience."

  • Wonderful Location

    "First of all I want to say the owner is wonderful to deal with. She was very accommodating. The location is amazing. It is one block off from the beach and public pier! There is a big playground about a block away too. Also, there are a few restaurants and bars in walking distance. Surf City is a great place to be. There weren't many people there, so it was very relaxing not having a big crowd on the beach and at restaurants. I was there for work and still enjoyed the city and beach after my work day was done. Back to the rental: There is a great porch to sit on and listen to the waves at the house and there is even a balcony upstairs. You can hear the waves while you lay in bed too. The best thing at the house was having the front door open while listening to the waves and getting a nice breeze. My dog enjoyed laying on the top of the stairs on the porch. The weather was so perfect while I was down there that I didn't have to use the air conditioning. The only thing is that it is a little out dated if you are looking for "new or modern." I didn't mind it, but a few things need to be fixed. The shower head in the main bathroom near the bedrooms is not very functional. It is a hand sprayer with no way to make it stay up without holding it. Another thing is that the carpet is stained and has runs around the house, especially the living room. But, it didn't take away from my stay too much. I know some people that I know would complain about these things, but I don't mind it. I would definitely stay here again due to location and the owner. Those two things override the things that need to be fixed. If the shower head is fixed it will make it more convenient to use the shower in between the bedrooms, instead of the one off of the kitchen. Bottom Line Up Front: I recommend staying here if you aren't looking for outrageous prices and a great location!!!!!"

    "I keep thinking I should do this, so here goes. This is the eleventh year we have rented Slowdance. We will be there on May 14 this year and back again in September. Yes we rent it twice a year spring and fall. That should be enough for any "Doubting Thomas" If it wasn't the best vacation spot, with the best property, that I have found I wouldn't keep going back. We tried the Outer Banks and were not impressed. We have been to Jekyll Island in Georgia and it was OK, but driving from PA was a task and being oceanfront is not really oceanfront - there was always a walk. Our children are grown, but they have both been with us at Slowdance, and now I have to make my arrangements around their schedules - they have threatened to cut me out of their wills. Enough of our history. We have never been disappointed. The property was always clean and well maintained - not like many others. The pictures are true - what you see is what you get. We have had a few instances where work had to be done - one year the upstairs air went out -but the owner had someone on it the next day. It was a major repair as the entire unit had to be replaced and the job was completed while we were still there. That was an expensive fix and it was done promptly with no interruption to our vacation. Last September we were there during the storm. It got pretty rough - the entire set of steps to the beach was washed away. The storm was bad enough it took down a house toward the southern end of the island.. When I called the owner and told her she offered us another property if we didn't feel safe staying there, but we were comfortable with the house and stayed. The steps were repaired before we left, which was pretty impressive considering the damage done to all the properties on the island. The owner is a terrific lady. . She is most accommodating and will work with you to make your stay as pleasurable as possible."
