  • Small Cottage Near Beach

    "This is a small cottage near the beach on the ocean side of the main road (Pacific Ave.). There are a number of good things about the house as well as some bad. But overall we enjoyed it and we'd probably stay here again. THE GOOD: Location - Close to public beach access in a quiet area of an otherwise overcrowded city at peak times. Being in the North End allows driving access into town via less crowded roads from Norfolk. Yard - Big private yard for the kids to run around in. Outdoor dining areas. Porch - Awesome screened porch for chilling, reading, sipping... A/C - Central Air worked well the whole time. Washer/Dryer - Nice for drying wet clothes or minimizing dirty laundry to do back home. Price - At least when we stayed the price was reasonable relative to other options. Decor - About as nice as it could be for a house this age and size. Outdoor Shower - For washing off all that sand. Manager - Kept in touch. THE BAD: Size - This is a very small house suitable for a short stay of a family of four or maybe a bit more. But much more would get very tight very fast. Age - The house was built in the 50's and it shows in a lot of ways. No updates likely done this millennium. Charming and rustic if you can see it that way. Otherwise just plain old, but mostly still serviceable. Kitchen - What's the opposite of modern? That's what this kitchen feels like. Though there is a nice dishwasher. Washer/Dryer stacked unit is also in kitchen. Bathroom - The single worst thing about this house is the one and only TINY TINY TINY bathroom. Extremely extremely small, and everyone has to use it. The layout in there is just terrible and there is literally about an 18 inch gap you have to squeeze through behind the shower to get to the toilet and original 1950's sink. Shower itself is so tiny adults could barely even use it. I cannot overstate how non-functional this bathroom is, and after a week, that becomes an issue. Nowhere near ADA compliant if accessibility is an issue for you. Cleaning Company - Whatever cleaning company they use is moderate at best. The place wasn't dirty, but it was abundantly clear that they have to move fast to turn the rental over each week and just skip a number of areas (under the beds, overflowing trash cans outside, etc.). You pay for this cleaning company via an add-on fee, so you'd hope they'd do a better job. It wasn't the worst I've seen by any stretch, but I'd find a new crew."

  • Great family getaway near the beach!

    "We had a great long weekend away at Shep's Quarters! The house was beautifully kept and clean, and an easy walk to the beach (even for 2 toddlers). The outdoor showers made it easy to rinse off before going back in the house after a fun day. The beach was clean and practically empty all day long, so it was great for families to spread out and relax. The owner was very pleasant and easy to contact, readily answering any questions and giving some fun tips. The house is located in a quiet, family neighborhood with plenty of room for parking in the driveway and to store your beach essentials in the garage. There are even some beach umbrellas and toys for the kids in the garage. The house is located close enough to stores/restaurants to be convenient, but far enough away that you can fully relax. Make sure to take advantage of watching the sun rise from the roof deck! We had a wonderful time and look forward to hopefully returning in the future!"

  • Close to beach

    "We really liked the proximity to the beach! Very easy walk and not as busy as the boardwalk area. Also, it was nice to have the beach chairs provided!"

  • Truly Amazing.

    "I searched for a home to rent for my family and my sister's family to rent for Christmas so we could be near our parents. I found this house and thought it looked perfect. And it was. My family arrived first and the house had a beautiful wreath on the door and Christmas candles in the windows. We walked in and there was a tree, stockings, and beautiful tabletop decorations. I couldn't wait for my sister and her children to arrive so we could start our special Christmas together. I turned on the fireplaces, the tree and then explored the beautiful home. The pictures do not do it justice. The owners have gone above and beyond to make their home special. It has loads of comfortable sitting areas. The kitchen is well stocked. The thoughtful and beautiful decorating choices just added so much to the experience. Oh. And the location- can't be beat - a few feet away from the beach access and close to the entrance to the park. We felt so lucky to be together this Christmas and this home added extra specialness to the experience."
