I Love being near the ocean! I love nature and animals and music.
I feel so blessed to spend time here just walking on the beach or having a cozy fire and enjoying some wine with friends.
Donna Frizzley purchased this house in 2007
I love the island , the attitude of the beautiful people there, the relaxed ,easy going island speed .... I love to just just relax listen to music and do nothing.... just enjoy life.... It's a place to relax and walk on the beach.
is every bit as important as what you do see. At a certain price point all homes are nice. Previous reviews have been very accurate as to the quality of this rental. What makes this home exceptional is that it feels like an owner occupied home. It is EXACTLY what one hopes for when gathering family from across the country. Arriving to MULTIPLE fresh flower arrangements was an immediate indication that this home was much more than nice. This is a cherished family home and even though the owners are not onsite, their staff do a wonderful job. This was our home for a week. We had a couple of nice days and I easily found gardening gloves and a rake to enjoy this lovely quiet property. We did not want for anything. One day my sister broke her toe and you just KNEW this home would be equipped with a First Aid Kit. (One in main house and one in cabin as well). One morning my mother burnt the toast and the smoke alarms went. IMMEDIATELY I thought, "Thank you God"...because when I rent a home I never think to check the smoke alarms...and I likely should. KNOWING you are in a beautiful, well maintained home in an ideal location with excellent staff near by....don't hesitate to gather your favourite people at this spot!
This past September a group of 10 girls stayed at this amazing home. The pictures and description on the internet are understated. Everything you need is at your fingertips, from the fully equipped gourmet kitchen to the exquisite linens. It slept us all in comfort and plenty of space to create privacy if you wanted it. The outdoor barbeque area with huge table and seating for 12 was everything we could have asked for, not too mention the firepit with a woodshed full of nicely stacked wood. We all agreed we would stay here again in a heart beat.... Great job to the owners with wishes for future success...Karen and the Girls
We rented this home for a family get-away, four brothers got together for a four day weekend and enjoyed golf at Storey Creek, salmon fishing, some great BBQ's and a day trip up to Mount Washington.Thank You again Donna & Joe for the use of your beautiful home, we enjoyed our stay very much and found the home to be not only very comfortable, luxurious, and a great location, but also very well kept and equipped. We hope to do it again.
The Home by the Sea proved a great venue for our small family gathering. The house is incredibly spacious, with ample room for our group of 10. All of the interior furnishings, fixtures, and conveniences were high quality, making the house very comfortable. The owners also provided kayaks, bikes, and other outdoor amenities. It's located in a quaint, beach resort-like area, with miles of beachfront just across the road. A basic (and cheap) 9 hole golf course is within walking distance, as is the Oyster River, which provided all sorts of swimming, hiking, and fishing fun for the kids. Great location; great house; highly recommended.
Thank you for sharing your wonderful home.
The home was luxurious enough to make us feel like Kings while still
maintaining a family friendly relaxing and inviting atmosphere.
We have just spent 3 weeks staying in the fantastic holiday home. We travelled over from Scotland to enjoy some salmon fishing, the house was amazing, equipped with everything we expected and more! Marnie the housekeeper, was wonderful and made us feel welcome from the minute we arrived. The booking process was easy and would recommend this accommodation to families or groups of friends wanting a more relaxed holiday and the ease of self catering.
Thanks to Donna and Joe, Marnie and Kevin for all your help during our stay - we had a fabulous stay and are looking to return in 2014.
