What a fabulous house!

We just returned from a great vacation in this terrific home! We loved the location as the porches face the east and look straight down and across one of the lagoons. All but one of our kids came and all 4 of the grandchildren were there. The beach, which is without a doubt the very best in all of west beach,was a short walk or an even shorter drive to the dune walk-over. There are lots of beach toys in the storage room downstairs as well as a couple of intertubes which are perfect for the lazy river pool. Speaking of pools, the infinity edge pool at the club house is beautiful but the lazy river pool is the best. It is not huge but there is palm tree shade, lots of chairs and chaise lounges (never all taken) and tables. We took picnic lunches or snacks with us and that pool was a delightful way to cool down after time at the beach!
The house itself is absolutely great! When my boys were growing up, we rented beach houses all over Sea Isle and Tarramar. Some were better than others but most had uncomfortable or extremely uncomfortable living room furniture. One house we always liked had living room furniture that was so uncomfortable we hated sitting in it. The furniture in this home is very, very nice. The coffee table has 4 little ottomen chairs that pull out which was perfect for the grandkiddos or for adults to prop up their tired feet.The couches are very comfy and one pulls out into a queensize sleeper. The dining room table will seat 10 if you squeeze every one in! The beds are, frankly, as nice as you would have in your own home. One of my sons has a temperpedic and he was dreading missing it. He said their bed was every bit as comfortable as their "gucci" one at home. The porches are very large. The one off the living area has a nice gas grill, two tables and lots of chairs. We loved the white rockers the most! The porch off the master also has lots of seating. The master and master bath are extremely nice-almost too nice for the beach!! There is also a lot of seating under the beach house on the patio area. The shower down there even has hot water! I did a lot of cooking for the "crew" and this kitchen is the best equipped that we have ever stayed in. There are tvs in every bedroom as well as the living area so everyone could chill out in different places and watch what they wanted.
There are a lot of home rentals to choose from in Pointe West but this one has to be one of the best. We will definitely recommend it to all
