The Perfect Vacation Rental

I've traveled far and wide, and have stayed many places, including several different places on the Jersey Shore, so when I characterize this as the "perfect vacation rental," I'm speaking from experience.
For starters, while I can honestly say that the property description is entirely accurate, I must also so that the description undersells the condo. It is beautiful, both inside and out. Everything you could want is there, and everything is considered, from a booster chair and stroller for the kids to a portable stool for the tub to make it handicapped-accessible. There are several games, several movies, and several books to keep you busy, just in case you forgot anything, and the arrangements inside, with the various bedrooms and entertainment units, is perfect for entertaining the young teenagers you might be bringing with you. Put the teens in the "gaming bedroom," hook up the Xbox or PS3 and, if you're wifi ready, they can keep themselves busy on the secure network as you spend time at the beach (which is a stone's throw away) or at the pool.
Come dinner time, there's an electric grill on the balcony, which is large enough for a half-dozen burgers and 5 or 6 hot-dogs. The kitchen has everything else you could want, down to the recipe box in the corner of the counter in case you're feeling adventurous.
The condo truly has the feel of a home away from home. It is not the "typical" Jersey shore beach rental; it is well-cared for, well-appointed, and feels like a home you don't ever want to leave.
The owners are very responsive by email to any query you might have. In addition, the management company is on top of things as well. There building was cleaned every day (we saw the people doing it) and the management company's overall presence was apparent, but almost invisible.
The location is ideal. In the Crest, you're far enough away from the Boardwalk to help reduce the temptation for the kids, yet close enough to get there with relative ease. With the trolley stopping out front, you have the option of having some of your party head to the Boardwalk while others linger by the pool. As I said, you can't ask for more.
It was truly a pleasure staying here. This condo has everything you could ask for in a vacation rental, and then adds things you wouldn't expect. It was worth every penny to stay here, and we will be back. I recommend this condo highly; just don't take my week next year!
