Wonderful location! Beautiful house for large families.

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect location for large families and friends to gather and enjoy a week at the beach. The town is quaint, yet offers a boardwalk and weekly fireworks. The house is located just steps away from the ocean. The beach is not crowded and offers hours of fun and relaxation. This was our second year and we hope to make it a tradition for years to come.

Summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful. It is well decorated and in amazing condition. The beach is right there as well as a pool. Rodger was great, he greeted us, walked us around and answered when we had a question! Thank you Rodger.

The shared pool was no worries at all. All the neighbors were so nice and all there for the same reason to vacation. I would highly recommend this house.

WARNING! This is a duplex and not a single family home

  • 3 of 5

We had a good time at this property. The views were spectacular and there was plenty of furnishings throughout the home. The beach was a very short walk and was very clean. Only thing that I wouldn't want to caution someone on is read the ad very well because buried in the middle of the ad it does say duplex, somehow my wife and I overlooked this and so did the tenant that was in the adjoining duplex. He was shocked as well as I, we both thought we were renting a single-family home. Since there were neighbors right next-door the pool was not private, we had to share the pool with our neighbors which was not exactly the vacation that we were looking for. The property manager Roger was absolutely awesome upon check-in but I wish he had made it very clear upon us reserving the property that it was indeed a duplex. There are three almost identical houses built literally side-by-side with maybe 30 feet in between each one. They share a common deck that goes all the way from one house to the third house. Each home is a duplex so you are talking about having six different families occupying similar spaces. There is one pool for each of the duplexes with the center duplex actually having to smaller pools. We got lucky that all of our neighbors were very nice but again as I said it is not exactly the vacation we thought we had signed up for. The home was very clean and well-maintained with the exception of the living room couch which was very stained and we actually felt uncomfortable sitting on it without first laying down a blanket. The location was extremely ideal and convenient to great restaurants and fun for the children.

Owner's Response: To our previous guest and all of our future guests, We love reviews. They give us an opportunity to see our properties through our guests' eyes. Reviews allow us to see what we’re doing well and evaluate areas of opportunity. Our goal is to provide a “5 Star” experience to every person who visits our properties, without exception. Since 2008, we have achieved that standard in every property we have represented until now. Our business is based on core values and guiding principles that shape how we interact with every potential guest. Two of those are honesty and integrity. We meet and greet each guest at the property when they arrive. We do this to make sure everyone is comfortable, has all of their questions answered, and gets their vacation off to a great start. When this particular guest arrived, he made the comment that he didn’t realize this property was a duplex. I was immediately concerned. Through our conversation, he admitted that he had looked at the pictures and read the reviews, but had not taken the time to review most of the other information provided. He also admitted that he had seen in the contract and the Welcome Letter this property was a duplex but “it just didn’t register.” The main reason for referencing our conversation is to highlight the extent we provide clarity and transparency around our properties. In the main description on the property website, “duplex” is stated 2 times in the first couple of paragraphs. When a guest sends an inquiry, my response to them includes the words “oceanfront duplex” twice in the first 10 sentences of the email. Also a statement is included that the “pool is shared with side B guests.” When the contract is sent, “Lulla by the Sea, Unit A” is listed at the top. The Welcome Letter email states “Lulla by the Sea (A)” as well. 4 separate documents are provided to each guest referencing that this property is a duplex. Lastly, I speak directly to each guest including the gentleman who reviewed this property when they are ready to book. This gives guests a chance to ask questions. On a final note, our cleaning crews have been referenced in reviews and recognized for their quality of work. The referenced sofa is inspected along with an extensive list of other items prior to every check in. If any item does not meet an extremely high standard, it is replaced or cleaned. We take seriously our responsibility to provide an outstanding vacation retreat and think that is reflected in all previous reviews.

Fabulous home, perfect for a relaxed and comfortable family gathering--ages newborn to 80!

  • 5 of 5

We had a six day visit with our three children and their young families and "grands" and enjoyed every minute--the pool, the large patio, the direct access to the beach. There was plenty of everything - patio furniture, dining chairs, dishes, towels, cooking items. The layout was perfect, with the bedrooms on three floors allowing for privacy and segregating families with early bedtimes. The elevator was a lifesaver for moving in and for our elderly guests. Everyone is already asking me to book again for Memorial Day next year. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us!
