Beautiful house with pool
We had a great Family Vacation at David's house. It was a big house, however, with so many open spaces in the house you could hear everything from every level. The kids enjoyed fishing and crabbing from the bay. The view was beautiful and we were able to see the fireworks from the backyard. It's a short drive to the Boardwalk and the Beach. We could have done without the refrigerator dripping through the whole weekend. David the owner was very nice and helpful, and I recommend this house for a wonderful vacation.
Thank you for staying at my property.
I'm sorry about the refrigerator, but I'm happy to report that it has since been repaired.
I hope to have you as guests in my home in the future. I would be delighted to offer you a nice discount since you and your family were such wonderful guests.
Thank you again for choosing my home for your family vacation.
Good Location, Great Owner, Minor Issues
We stayed at David's awesome property July'17,had a great time. Mixed age ranges of kids from 2 to teen/6 adults with plenty of room to spread out as needed.
The House -
As advertised, very spacious, small beach area was perfect for a few toddlers and launching kayaks from. Some minor dock repair and pool skimmer cap missing issues when we arrived but David was quick to respond and it was nothing out of the ordinary for a popular rental. The kids LOVED the many nooks of this house.
This area was hit hard by sandy and the neighborhood is still recovering. Neighbors told us they just got back after few years of rebuilding. Sadly a few abandoned homes still on the island and across the street but nothing that messed with our fun and can only get better as there are definitely people who care in area.
Seaside Heights etc is a great location. Definitely reccommend using Island state beach park as the beach of choice - NJ residents $6/ car load, out of state $12bucks, short drive, not too crowded beaches etc. Fireworks every wed night in the summer which you can see really well from all the decks/dock. Boardwalk is great (sawmill pizza!).
Other Reviews - Our Thoughts:
Wet Items in Laundry: We took note about other reviews mentioning wet rags/hand towels in the washer on arrival - we experienced this but just threw them right into dryer and all good. This is pretty typical in our experience of other rentals where the cleaning crew puts a load in and sometimes misses the dry cycle. No biggie.
Deck Condition: The water during hurricane sandy did not enter the house from photos we looked up but wore the deck down a lot for sure. The caretaker/David are aware and doing maint. to keep things safe.
Sheets/Towels: Other reviews noting being surprised by not knowing about the sheets and such, david was very clear with us, definitely bring towels / sheets / pillow cases / toliet paper / paper towels etc.
Stains: One review noted a lot of stains, only thing we saw was the master bedroom mattress could use replacing after this season but again we didn't notice anything else.
-There is a microwave/sink/small fridge in a small breezeway between master bath and bedroom.
-Excercise area of master b-rm makes a great nook for kids to zzz
-The central staircase/house is very open - its very cool - but if you have small children who wake early it is difficult to contain noise if someone wants to snooze.
It was a pleasure having you and your family as guests!
Thank you so much for your very detailed review. I wish more tenants would take the time out to also do so.
Just so you are aware, I have many upgrades planned for the 2018 season. Including new flooring in the Great Room and entire 3rd floor Master Bedroom. Also will be replacing the refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, washer and dryer. Will also be replacing the kitchen furniture as well as 2 sets of bedroom furniture.
I had replaced 3 mattresses this year and will replace more as needed.
Thanks again for choosing my home for your family vacation and I hope to have you as guests again!
Great place for a big gathering
Beautiful house with a beautiful view. We had a large family group to celebrate a special occasion- the kids loved the pool and game room and the adults loved the house and the large deck with all the great view. Plenty of searing for everyone . Just be sure to bring or rent your own sheets and towels. Also need to stock up on all paper products including to, paper towels,napkins, soap, dish detergent , sponges, etc
It was a perfect house for our celebration . Any small problems we had David helped us with very quickly
Thanks again for choosing my home for your family gathering/vacation. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to have you as guests again in the future.
Beautiful home! Poorly equipped. Gorgeous kitchen with loads of empty cabinets. Poor mattresses on the beds. The people whom David pays to do the housekeeping are ripping him off. Wet towels and sheets left in washing machine, smelling like mildew. Silverware scattered in various draws not all in silver tray. Dishwasher full of dishes, We literally had to buy dishwashing detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, brillo etc. Finding the basics like a coffee pot was like going on a scavenger hunt. Because of previous year's experience I bought pots and pans from home. He has an ant problem, which I am sure he is not aware of. No cleaning supplies available to clean tubs and showers after use. No iron and ironing board available. No written instructions regarding garbage collection, heat etc. My second time renting and I will do it again because David is a great person and he is fare, and I absolutely love his home and the location of same. I would like to manage his property for him, and shop for the things that all rental homes should have available for their renters.
Amazing House...Amazing Location.
Very clean home in a great location. Plenty of common area for a large group/family. Home was better than advertised. The owner , David, made sure our stay we better than expected. Close to all the major attractions the Jersey Shore has to offer. Would HIGHLY recommend this rental/owner to anyone looking for a great place to stay. The easy of renting this home made the trip so much more enjoyable. Thanks again David!
Thank you for the positive Review!
Hope to have you and your large family back as guests again.
I normally would NEVER write a negative review (I'm a property manager, myself) but I feel something has to be said.
My family and I stayed at this home for Labor Day weekend. The house is beautiful- very spacious and in a great location. However, I feel like we were in a "don't ask, don't tell" situation.
There were no towels in the house whatsoever, nor sheets of any kind. There are 6 bedrooms in the house, and yet there was only 1 pillow per bed. We had to go out and buy towels, sheets and pillows, an extra $1,000 out of our pockets. The wash machine was full of sopping wet rags that I didn't know what to do with so i dried them and put them in a bag. The dishwasher was also full of dirty dishes, and there was food in the microwave.
The pool deck is really dangerous. Parts of it around the pool itself are actually caving in, creating big gaps and a few of us tripped over some planks that stick up higher than the rest. A couple of people got splinters in their feet as well because the deck seems as though it has not been sanded in a long time. The pool itself is nice, however everyone who went in came out with a rash of some sort and we needed to run to CVS and buy cortisone cream immediately.
I only hope that the owner pays closer attention to what goes on in his house so that no one else has to experience what we did when we first got there.
Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that you posted negative comments, however, please let me respond.
Regarding the no towels and sheets, the web-site clearly indicates that these are NOT provided. The Landlord provides pillows and blankets. I'm sorry that you failed to notice that.
The wet towels in the washing machine are from my cleaning crew. As soon as they finish cleaning the house, they place them in the washing machine and wash them. I'm sorry that this bothered you. Although, this has been the same process for the 14 years that I'm renting the house, I've never received a complaint. That being said, I will now instruct the crew to no longer do this in order to not have this be an issue for renters.
You are correct with pointing out the deficiencies in the deck. However, ALL of these issues were repaired at the first opportunity, when the house was vacant. As I'm sure you can understand, renters do not wish to be disturbed during their vacation time. Doing work such as a deck repair would not be a welcomed matter while renters are present. Fortunately, the house books up really well with renters. The down side however, is some repairs must wait until the house is vacant.
I'm sorry that you encountered these issues, but I do welcome your review.
