Highly Recommend!

I stayed here in 2000 with a big group of friends before being married with children. The house easily fit everyone comfortably with 2 bathrooms, a half bath and an outdoor (hot & cold) shower. The house sits right on the dunes with a private walkway over the dunes to the beach. The outdoor shower was a perfect for a return from the beach after a early morning surf. Though there was a nice kitchen, we did a lot of eating out during my first stay as there were plenty of restaurants and activities within walking distance. After having such a good experience in 2000, I decided to look into staying here with several of the same friends who now have families. Thankfully, the house was still available to rent. The owners have done a lot of updating to the house and were very accommodating. The house lets off a great beachy vibe with its decor and ocean breezes flowing through the double sliding glass doors that open to the spectacular ocean view. We even spotted some dolphins playing amongst the surfers at one point. For Memorial Day Weekend 2011 and 2012, we had 6 energetic children under the age of 8 and 8 adults. Each family had its own room. The house was perfect for the kids and the owner even had tons of beach toys, kites, puzzles and games for the kids (and adults). When they weren't on the beach, the kids loved the short walk to get ice cream, play mini-golf and make necklaces at a bead shop down the road. We also brought bikes and scooters that the kids were able to cruise around on just outside the house. I noticed plenty of spots to rent bikes and buggies just down the street (surfboard lessons and rentals too). With all the kids, I really appreciated having a washer and dryer in the house. The kitchen had been redone with beautiful granite counter tops, new appliances and plenty of cookware (our friend who is a chef really appreciated this). We also got a lot of use out of the grill on the deck overlooking the beach. There was lot of room for eating with the deck table and indoor dining table. The Adirondack chairs on the decks were the perfect place to sit back and enjoy a cocktail while taking in the fresh sea breeze (while the kids kept busy coloring shells they had collected on the beach). - Chris W, from Massachusetts stayed May 2012

Perfect

I moved to Virginia from Ocean County 6 years ago. When we found out my cousin was getting married in mid May we jumped at the chance to rent a house on the Island. This house was perfect!! So well equipped with everything you could possibly need to make a wonderful meal. The back decks look out on to the ocean and there is plenty of seating for everyone!! We enjoyed our time there so much. My cousin and his wife were discussing renting the house for the two of them. We also talked about all of us renting it again, because it was a comfortable, family friendly house. Staying in the house were myself, my husband, my mother and 2 of my cousins with their wives. We had plenty of room for all of us, plenty of indoor and outdoor space where we could be away from everyone if we chose to do so. The private walkway to the beach made nice walks so much easier!! I love where I live now, but I didn't realize how much I missed being lulled to sleep by the ocean. Everything is nice and close. A grocery store right around the corner, restaurants, shopping and activities are very close. All can be easily walked to. Also, with the house in Surf City, you are only on Long Beach Blvd for a mile or less, so traffic is so not an issue!! Dealing with the owner and his contact was so nice and easy. Very willing to answer questions, give information and very quick to respond to emails. I would highly recommend this house to anyone. It was beautiful, comfortable and you could not ask for a better view or easier access to the beach!! We look forward to coming back! - Chrissy from Virginia stayed May 2012

A wonderful Place to Entertain

My family loved the stay at this house. The direct access to the beach made getting the kids on and off the beach a treat. The house is very updated. A modern kitchen and BBQ on the deck helped with entertaining friends. We had 3 generations of family stay here and room on the deck for friends to stop over on labor day.

Summer Family Vacation

For the past eight years our family has had the pleasure of staying at this beach front home in Surf City. The direct walk way to the beach makes getting there some much easier with kids. Not to mention allows for the option of a quick lunch, nap or bathroom break at home with ease. The house has four spacious bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms which is ideal for the many family and friends that seem to come and go during our beach vacation. The amenities offered - complimentary beach badges, wifi, cable and phone make us feel at home. We especially like how the homeowners continue to make improvements to the house. Each year there is something new to enjoy from a remodeled kitchen, updated bathrooms, new furniture and more. Not to mention a great location in walking distance to the market, restaurants, miniature golf and all the beach has to offer. We highly recommend this property and will continue to come back from many years to come!

Excellent Home

We absolutely loved this house. The pictures don't do it justice. The home is very updated. We had three family's staying there and our stay couldn't have been better. It was great to be able to walk right out to the beach, and watch the sunset every nite. Can't say enough good things about this property. We will definetly rent it again. Two thumbs up.. - Sue - stayed August 2010
