We are better then ever after repairing Hurricane Sandy damage. It's been a long road, but we finally made it. The inside of our house was untouched. We have a brand new porch and beautiful landscaping.
We will rent for Thanksgiving and Christmas and those dates are somewhat flexible. Our summer of 2014 is booked. June and September are also nice times of the year and reasonable to boot.
