The house is very dated. It’s in need of a makeover.
The house was not clean. It looked dirty and smelled old.
Beach front on 10th
Layout was good, owner responsive to calls on plumbing and electrical issues. Needs electrical upgrade. Oven inconsistent with temps; dated kitchen, but it works. Everyone liked the house and location. Would be 5 stars if not for my frustration on the various issues mentioned above.
Gem in the rough
We organized a Family get together with half of us from here in NJ and the other half coming all the way from Germany. (11 adults and 2 kids )The house was just the perfect size, plenty of space for all of us to hang out inside and out, the bedrooms were in different wings of the house so if privacy was needed, it was there. There were different levels of balconies too, with chairs , lounges and a fantastic view of the beach, the water and the sunrise! Gorgeous!
Plenty of parking was available - we were able to fit 5-6 cars into the driveway! And that's where they mostly stayed, everything you need is really just a short walk away, which is good because in the summer it's busy on the road and parking is difficult. Walk or bring/rent a bike!
With that being said, the house was not the cleanest and it needs some TLC. Some windows could not be opened, screens at patio sliders were hard to move, and we had an issue with the AC in the main house ( kitchen, living/dining room) and that was during a very hot and humid week. What helped was that the main terrace offered lots of shade and a good breeze! We really should have been told ahead of time of the issue, not that we could have made any changes at that point, but the owner gave us a small refund.
Be sure to know that you need to get your own beach badges and bring or rent your sheets and towels. First time we had to do that with all the rentals we have been doing over the years.; It's a pain and an extra expense we could have done without. Also make sure to bring bathroom paper products, soaps; if you like to cook bring your spices besides the basics you won't find anything. There were beach chairs, kiddie pools and some beach toys to use.
One more important thing to know is that this house has a lot of stairs outside and 2 spiral staircases inside that could be hard to maneuver for older adults and definitely a no-no for little feet. For our grand kids those were off limits and the girls shared the room downstairs in the main building. So it worked out.
All in all we had a great time together in and around this house - it could not only be a gem but a sparkling one at that with a little effort! We all agreed that even with some of the cons - the set up and location would be well worth another visit - it's definitely the strong point of the house!
Thank you very much for your detailed and objective review. First of all I like to apologize again for the last-minute breakdown of the living room AC. It was repaired by a technician right before your arrival, and we were told it was good to go. Unfortunately it broke again in your stay. We could not find an AC tech to make an immediate repair because it was the week of the July 4th.
Nevertheless we are glad you enjoyed your stay and had a good time. We look forward to your returning in next season. We certainly will do our best to make improvements.
Great stay and great view!
It was as advertised and we truly enjoyed the week, we will be renting next summer as well.
Thank you so much for your kind words. You are very welcome to return next season. Best Regards.
Loved our stay!
This house is perfect for a large group of friends. It had everything we needed and the view from the porch was incredible!
We are glad to hear you had a wonderful time at our beach front home. Hope to see you again next season. Have a wonderful summer. Robin
