My family rented Julie's beautiful home for my mother's 60th birthday. Everything we had read or had been told was accurate for this listing. No surprises when we walked in except for just how great the rental really was!!
We had 6 adults and two children (ages: 62, 61, 35, 34, 30, 42, 6 and 4). The house is literally 3 minutes to the beach, with beach access on the boardwalk one block south. There are four bedrooms: 2 decent size queen rooms, one small double room and one adorable small twin bed room. What was also quite nice was the queen-sized pull out couch in the living room which was extremely comfortable.
The whole house is clean, bright and airy. The kitchen is new, clean and big. It enabled us to cook and sit for 8. We used the porches and side courtyard for all meals though as there was plenty of space and seating and so lovely. The outdoor, hot shower is key from a long day after the beach. Town is literally 30 seconds away if you want to hit up Main Street coffee shops in the morning.
Beach cart, chairs, umbrellas and 6 beach passes were provided which really saves you a lot of money. The upkeep on the house is undeniable. So very clean, beautifully decorated, tons of special touches and attention to detail. Even the basement was shockingly nice! Small actual living space in the downstairs living room, but it doesn't matter because you'll either be at the beach or on the front porch, the side porch or in the courtyard at one of the two outdoor cafe tables...all within your own little white picket-fence surrounded by gorgeous plants and flowers.
My family absolutely loved the house. Julie was available for all our needs while there, just one email away.
Two nice sized bathrooms, upstairs had a tub which was helpful for kid baths. Wifi access was easy and worked well.
Hand soaps were provided everywhere. Kitchen was stocked with kitchen rugs, every pot and pan, utensils, bowls needed and fridge was big and clean.
The grill was a decent size and worked well.
Definitely a HUGE win for you if you choose to stay here. We're already talking 2015! Thanks, Julie! Amazing memories made here!
