The place was everything and had everything we could have wanted. Location was great. They were so friendly and wonderful to work with. We already know we want to make this an annual trip and hope it is available again next year. Thank you so much for making this trip the best!

Clean, Bright, and Cheerful

  • 5 of 5

The unit was very clean and nicely furnished. The large rooms were wonderful. We had four families, and each family having their own bathroom was definitely a plus. The beach view from the upper floor was great, even considering the unit is across the street from the beach. The short walk to the beach was not a problem. Being able to store all our beach paraphanalia on the garage level was a tremendous convenience and significantly reduced the amount of sand that was dragged up to the living area. The elevator was a great convenience, especially on arrival and departure.

Angela was very helpful and provided two pages of information about things to see and places to eat.

If we have the opportunity, we'll be back.

Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time back and we loved it! We stayed here last year with a bigger group of friends & family and decided to come back again this year with just our extended family. We like that the home is very spacious and can easily accommodate us (since we have younger kids it’s especially helpful). It was very clean, and even met my mother’s high standards! The owners mentioned they hired a new cleaning company and we were very pleased. Another “biggie” for us is the close proximity to the beach and pool and my older parents really liked using the private elevator. I like the way the home is decorated and noticed some really nice touches they made since our last stay. The owners were great to work with - - they provided lots of helpful info about the home and surrounding area and also followed through on any requests/questions we had. Thanks for a great stay!

A great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this house! It was close to the beach, had wonderful views on the beach from the front and the sound from the back. Walking distance to the boardwalk, plenty of games left at the house to play, the owner sent us a list of things to do and restaurant recommendations, which was very appreciated since it was our first time there. We did have one maintenance problem, which was repaired very quickly.

Great Trip

  • 5 of 5

The house was great. Wish the bedrooms were on the top floor just because of noise, but spent most of our time in common area anyway. Disappointed by view from pool though. Don't know if it's for security or code, but you can't see the beach/ocean at all from pool. Great views and great location. The elevator was a great touch. Will definitely be back.

Niice View, Very Roomy......DIRTY...DIRTY,,,DIRTY

  • 2 of 5

Our family rented this property for the Labor Day 2012 Weekend. The property was as described, but was VERY VERY dirty. The pictures on the website look nice, but the living area sofa was almost too dirty to sit on as were the cloth dining chairs. The master furniture master....has so much mildew I was not comfortable getting in the shower. The kitchen, dining and living area hardwood could be beautiful if only they were clean. Not only were there food crumbs, but it just had not been mopped or scrubbed in a very long time. We accidentally slipped something under the sofa and it did not look as though it had ever been cleaned ever. Also, first impression was not good as the entry needs to be cleaned of the dust and cobwebs and the carpet vaccumed. Owners, if you are paying someone to clean your house, they are ripping you off. We would not rent again...(unless there was a MAJOR cleaning) we told United Rentals about the dirtiness of the home and they wanted to know why we did not call when we checked in. It would have been impossible to clean after 14 people were in the house. We noticed ther were no reviews on this home and hope this one will be posted.

Owner's Response: We were extremely disappointed to hear that the cleanliness of our home did not meet the expectations of this guest as we take GREAT pride in our home and we truly want our guests to have a wonderful experience! We do pay A LOT of money to a professional management company to ensure that the cleanliness is at the highest standard and we have since had several conversations with our management company to discuss this issue. The company responded that the cleaning was done and inspected and said they were surprised that no one called as they would have been more than happy to come out and make things right. As the owner, we don’t want it to even get to the point of having to call someone out as we want it done properly the first time! We have taken several steps to ensure that a proper high quality cleaning is routinely done. We are in the process of additional upgrades that guests will find appealing. We wish this guest would have let us or the management company know and we’re puzzled that they waited until this review to say something (the mgmt company had no recollection of any complaints from this guest). Please know we’ve taken this seriously and implemented steps to avoid this in the future.
