Cozy beach house in an excellent location.
This was our 8th year renting this house, and after I write my review, I will be emailing to rent again for next year. It is very special to my family. The short walk to the beach, and close proximity to Surf City, is truly the best! The owners add cute decorative items each year, and there’s always an improvement to the house every time we come. We all have plenty of room to have our own space, but our favorite place is hanging on the large deck all together. The sunset and ocean views are so beautiful. Very sad to be leaving, but we can’t wait to come back.
Luxury with comfort
Five years coming to this home and each year gets better. Love to see the new items/appliances added each year. We feel so comfortable in this home and look forward to spending many years to come!
Perfect from beginning to end
This was a perfect vacation from start to finish. The booking process and information provided by Janice was easy to understand and always helpful. The owners even provided a pack and play so we did not have to rent one which was very gracious of them. The homes suited everyone’s needs and was just a two minute walk to the beach. It was appointed with everything we could possibly have wanted including beach chairs, umbrellas, kitchen was stocked with everything we needed for preparing meals. Communication with the owner was always available although once we were there we were all set! Do not hesitate to rent this home for your family vacation, we look forward to coming back again next year!
It feels like home when you are there and we have been going to the island for 40 years! :)
We have been staying here for a number of years now.
Always a great time. The location cant be beat. Steps from a beautiful
beach. 3rd house off of the beach. Large home, many bedrooms, many
bathrooms, many decks. All furnishings are on point. 3rd floor is perfect for
entertaining/hanging out. Huge living space/dining room with large kitchen
spills out to enormous deck with access to roof deck. Sunset views. Cant get
a better house in a better location at this price....period.
Neglected & Shabby
We had high expectations when we saw photos of the property and how close to the beach it was. Unfortunately, the house has been neglected and not maintained. Carpets and furniture were stained. Some pieces of furniture were in need of repair. Additionally, many rooms need re-painting. That would not have been so bad if the cleanliness of the house had been up to basic standards. I spent the the first two days cleaning pots, pans, cooking & eating utensils, glassware and dishes - many of which were put away in the cabinets and drawers dirty and greasy. The oven, stove top, refrigerator shelves, drawers and cabinet shelves all needed to be cleaned. Bathrooms seemed to have been wiped around, but on further inspection, toilets were soiled and required scrubbing and disinfecting.
The outdoor garbage and recycling cans were filled to overflowing and left uncovered. The untied bags sent trash all over the yard during a rain and wind storm. We had to wait several days until the regularly scheduled trash removal made it possible for us to cover the cans.
It is a shame the house has been neglected, because it has the potential to be an ideal vacation spot.
I have read your review on VRBO and am deeply disappointed in your impression of my home. I take pride in the cleanliness and maintenance of the property. If you were unhappy with the condition of the property, it was your responsibility to contact me immediately.
Although I am not in the area, I do have someone that is on call at all times to inspect and repair any situations. If the plates, utensil, pots and pans, oven, stovetop, refrigerator and bathrooms were not up to your standards, you should have notified me and I would have resent the cleaning crew who would have recleaned up to your standards under your supervision.
I have beautiful hardwood floors throughout the house with few area rugs. There is no extensive carpet in the house.
If there was furniture that was in need of repair, a photo should have been taken and sent to us immediately. Unfortunately, the time you spent there, there were many rainy and windy days. You arrived on Saturday and trash collection days are on Tuesday and Thursday.
Prior to your stay, you contacted my manager many times for information in which she graciously took the time to send you. You were sent information that clearly stated emergency numbers in case there was a problem.
