What a great experience we had renting this home. The owner was very responsive and easy to work with. The house was perfect for our large family, and we loved that we had the house to ourselves. Many times we have rented the first floor of a 2 floor place and had to listen to people walking heavy above us. We had 5 adults and 6 teenagers and had more than enough space...even some beds were not used. The large kitchen was a great gathering place. A hit for the teens was the second floor family room with large leather couch/recliners and TV. It gave them a separate place to hang out and play video games. The house also has 4 porches/decks! It is a quick walk to the board and the beach, taking you right up to the Wonderland Amusement Park. It was close enough for a quick walk without having the noise the amusement park. We also brought along our well behaved, mellow dog who felt right at home...there is even a park around the corner for her daily walks. The kitchen was well stocked with all the utensils, dishes, etc that we needed, and several beach tags were available. The garage is full of items to use (bikes, chairs, coolers, beech cart, etc) but it is very unorganized and some is not in the best condition (can't complain though because we have never stayed anywhere where that much was available for us to use...meaning we didn't have to bring it all with us). The house did have some needed cosmetic repairs, but we rented at the end of a busy season and I am sure they will be fixed. If you have a large group, want something with lots of beds and bathrooms, and a close walk to the boards and beach, consider staying here - you will work with a very flexible, friendly, and courteous owner and have a lot of space to enjoy fun times with your friends and family.
