Oceanfront beach house
The house is managed by a great guy, Paul, who couldn't have been more pleasant and helpful. The owners of this home are so fortunate to have him on standby!
Gorgeous view! Sunrise in the mornings, surfers riding waves until the beach opens, the moon reflecting on the ocean at night. Really beautiful stuff.
Great location. Beach! Bakery at the end of the street- everything we tried was delicious. Mini Golf is across the street: we played on our last night and I think there were like 10 holes-in-one between my sister and my husband, so it is great for a putting self-esteem boost. Lol!
There is plenty of space for comfortable hanging out, sleeping, meals etc. 2 washer/dryers!
Relatively easy for my husband's Nanny, who requires use of a wheelchair, to get around once she was physically in the house. We invited my husband's grandparents as soon as we realized that it would work and spending time with them was maybe the best part of the whole week. Great that the bathroom was right next door to the Queen room at the end of the hallway and just as close to the TV and common areas. Note that there weren't ramps leading into the house, but once we got her inside it was perfect on that ground floor.
Saturday to Tuesday rental when we asked for it at the outset. Very flexible for Labor Day weekend.
Well stocked kitchens. We invited family and friends who were in Barnegat Light and Surf City for dinner a couple nights and found everything that we needed too cook the way we do at home. Literally every thing your hand touches in a cook's kitchen was there.
The house smelled sour in some of the rooms, especially in the master and the room with the Queen on the ground floor. Kind of like body odor actually. We think it is the carpet and the amount of windows? There were plug-ins going when we got there but we don't like breathing harsh chemicals so we took them out. That night we found out why they were there. Nothing else would get rid of the scent. Reminded us of the car episode from Seinfeld. Not a big deal though- we are low maintenance and just dealt with it.
No chairs or umbrellas so BYO! We had a few but most houses usually have some too. Not the case here. They did however VERY generously supply 16 beach tags. So nice!
We had a great time. Everyone who came by to see us did too, and also thought the house was awesome. Overall a really good place to be with family and close friends. We made some great memories during our week.
