Cozy beach home - perfect for families!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our 18 month old daughter, as well as several friends with small children. The house was just perfect for us. The kitchen is open and spacious and was great for group meals. The big screen tv in the living room was great for movie nights. Our daughter made use of the high hair and pack and play every day- it was helpful to not have to bring these extra items along in an already fully- packed car. This home is located in a quiet end of Sea Isle City, so we felt comfortable and safe with the kids. It's about 3 blocks from the beach. One of the best things about this property is that the owners, Jim and Ellen, make you feel like you're at home. They are very accommodating and are easy to reach by phone or e-mail if needed. We would definitely recommend this vacation rental to anyone who is looking for great value for the money!

It was our pleasure to greet you at check-in, as well as learn about the great time you had during your well-deserved vacation with family and friends! We look forward to welcoming you back soon, since we rent throughout the year, including several holidays. Our plans include upgrading the flooring, as well as providing even more infant and family-friendly amenities in order to further everyone's comfort and enjoyment. Thanks again for choosing the "Castle Beach House!" Warm and sunny regards, Jim and Ellen

Quiet and relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent the last two nights of a hectic tour of the northeast at this beautifully appointed vacation rental. Spotlessly clean, it offered all the comforts of home, plus. From having breakfast surrounded by windows in the spacious and sunlit dining area, to sitting on the wraparound deck overlooking the quiet neighborhood, to watching television on the 55" TV in front of the gas fireplace in the evening, it was a time of rest and rejuvenation. My favourite spot in the house was the charming and private "turret room", accessible only by a winding stairway off of the deck. In the morning I would grab my reading material and my music and head up to this little sanctuary where I would spend an hour or two in perfect seclusion. And, of course, there is the ocean.... The beach is only a short walk from the house, and I took advantage of its proximity often. Finally, this review would not be complete without mentioning what wonderfully helpful and welcoming hosts Jim and Ellen are. They indeed do make it a "home away from home". Thanks, Jim and Ellen.

Owner's Response: Sherry, Thank you so much for your kind sentiments. It was such a joy to hear that you and Darrell found your stay be very quiet and relaxing - "a home away from home," which has always been our goal for our guests! We would love to have you stay with us anytime! Jim and I are excited that the Castle Beach House is nearly ready for our Summer 2016 guests...the garden area has a new dining table and benches. We just purchased several beach chairs and a Wonder Wheeler, and are ready to purchase a conversation set for the deck. Sea Isle is looking great with lovely landscaping downtown, graceful beach entryways to the wide replenished beach, and several new stores and restaurants. Thank you again, for taking the time to write such a kind review! Warm regards, Ellen

We stayed at the house for a full week in August. There were 6 adults and 1 child. The house was perfect for us. Plenty of room so that we were not on top of another. The owners of the home made us feel that it was our house. We loved staying there and will definitely be back in the future.

Great house with Great Owners

  • 5 of 5

My family of 7 stayed here along with my 3 grandsons. We had a wonderful time. House was clean, well lit, plenty of space and many amenities that you would need to help you with your vacation to a beach. The owners could not have been more helpful and accommodating. It was very reassuring. This is not my first time renting through VRBO but by far it was the most pleasant experience.

My family had no negatives about this house...only positive experiences from the very beginning of the rental agreement. Thank you Ellen and Jim. You were such a pleasure to deal with!

We also offer "Multi-Week Discounts" for families who just can't leave the beautiful, newly replenished Sea Isle beach after just one week! Thank you again for your kind review! Kind regards, Ellen

Great Location and Friendly Accommodating Owners

  • 4 of 5

Our family visited early in June. We found the location to be very good. It was right near the bay where we could sit on the benches and watch the beautiful sunsets. Ellen and Jim were extremely friendly, kind and eager to help in any way they could. The updates done so far on the home, especially in the main living area and kitchen are nice and give the home a fresh open feel. The beach is a short walk and the wonder wheeler provided was great for packing everything. The kids loved escaping to the turret to draw and play. There is a really cute waterfront restaurant called the Sunset Pier close to the house and Marita's Ice Cream was one of our frequent stops at night. We had a great week at the Beach Castle.
