The owners live in Washington and have a summer home in the Country Club district which they have rented for a decade to dozens of very happy families. They have purchased and renovated several properties, but this is their favorite.

Matthew Hastings purchased this house in 2012

If you want location, if you want peace and quiet, if you want to walk to the grocery store, to church, to a bookstore, to shop or to eat ... this is perfect. If you want a family house which permits large group activity yet has lots of space for privacy and summer naps ... this is the place. If you want an elegant, comfortable, memorable true vacation from everyday stress to connect with your friends and family ... this is the place.

The two houses afford ultimate family gathering and peace and quiet. The proximity to the beach, to town and to the outlets is unsurpassed. The houses are elegant, functional and completely comfortable. The screened-in front porch is perfect for eating, playing games, laughing, snoozing and reading. The beds are comfortable and the Park and Lake are wonderful.

Bedroom and Bed Configurations:

Gaslight House

Great place for a family gathering!

  • 5 of 5
My family gathered at the Gas House for my sister's birthday. There were 14 of us, encompassing three generations. It was perfect! There is plenty of room to spread out, a super well-equipped kitchen, comfortable, attractive furnishings and an easy walk to the boardwalk and beach. There are two ground floor bedrooms, making it convenient for family members who would rather not do stairs. The smaller of the two houses has a sitting area overlooking a lush, green park, its own tv and a bedroom with a loft and bunk beds..a great place for kids to take over when adults want time to themselves.

Excellent Choice

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in June for a week. It was a marvelous place. The home really takes you in. The kitchen is wonderfully upgraded and stocked. The porch and family room connect and there was so much lovely space for congregating, eating, board games and reading. The bathrooms were upgraded and lovely as well. Plenty of sleeping space for a lot of folks. The back house is really cool. Basically a short block walk to the ocean. Also near to coffee shop, bicycles, shopping, restaurants, market. Quiet at night. Plenty of amazing parking spaces. We would definitely lease again. Great space for 16 to 20. Thanks for everything Matt-Home Run! :-)

Wonderful Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We had a family celebration at the beach. The two houses on this property had plenty of space to handle all of us. Kitchen, living room and front porch were in constant use and we never felt packed in.

Every space was nicely decorated and you can see the pride the owners take in their property. Location was perfect for us. Beach, restaurants, shops and parks are all within easy walking distance.

An Amazing House & Location

An Amazing House & Location
  • 5 of 5
The owners were so kind to let our family rent it over Labor Day Weekend. We walked in the door and couldn't believe our luck. The open layout of the house (kitchen, dining room, living room) allowed our family to socialize easily. The kitchen has new high end appliances, is well stocked with everything you would need and had a lot of counter space for all of us to cook together. The bedrooms are much larger than I thought from the pictures. The decor was really well thought out and it was definitely not "rental". We only rented the house and not the cottage. I highly recommend this house as it was in more than perfect condition, very clean, and close to everything.

A great place for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5
This house is great. Nice sized rooms. We loved our vacation at the Gaslight House! It is completely renovated, very comfortable and relaxing. The screened porch is wonderfully large and comfortable. The beds are so comfortable. The location is great, within easy walking to activities for all ages. Additionally the owners were wonderful to work with.

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5
The photos do not do the house justice. This is the best location, parked the car and walked to everything in town. Great dining like Azafran and Jake's are close by. The beach and boardwalk are one and half blocks away. You are far enough away from stores and bars that it is quiet with minimal traffic The owner's had a wonderful gift basket waiting for us and stopped by right after we arrived to make sure everything was okay.

Great kitchen and dining area. It has a 5 burner stove, double ovens and a large refrigerator in the Gaslight House. We gave them all a workout. We had 16 people in our group including 5 children from age 16 down to 3 and all were able to sit and eat at a table or breakfast bar at the same time. We had a cookout with 20+ people and between the inside dining table, the breakfast bar and the porch picnic table everyone had a seat.

Hard wood floors, granite counter tops and the stone porch make this house gorgeous. No worries about falling over each other, there is plenty of space. The washer and dryer tackle huge loads with no problem.

The Lake cottage was perfect for those in our group who did not want to stay up playing games or talking into the wee hours of the morning.

We really didn't want to leave.
