Airy, well-appointed home a few blocks from beach & boardwalk
Compass House was a great home base in Ventnor for a family week. We were able to entertain visitors comfortably for a few meals, visit the beautiful soft-sand beach in a 10-minute stroll from the front door, and ride bikes that Peter provides. The house is on a quiet side street. Ceiling fans in the second floor rooms help with the warmer conditions upstairs. You can get VERY hot water out of taps and showers, so supervise younger family with washing. Peter was very quickly responsive to the few questions we had while we were in residence. We had to drive a bit to get to markets for food, including seafood, though there are closer ones with unpredictable hours. We were able to park two cars in the driveway, which helped on weekends when the street was full. There are several nice restaurants in walking distance that serve breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner, as well as ice cream shops. A perfect week, for us!
Great House with Lots of storage
We had a great stay for a week at the Compass House in July 2018. The home is exactly as described in the photos and description. Our family of 6 was comfortable and there was enough room for everyone. The location is a short walk to the beach and the house has everything you need with plenty of storage space in each room. The garage was stocked with bikes (4 adult & 2 kids), and had everything we needed for the beach including chairs, umbrellas, a buggy and surf boards. We cooked for our family most of the week in the fully stocked kitchen. Pete was attentive to any questions that we had both before we arrived and while we were there. I'd recommend this property for your summer stay in Ventnor.
Thank you Allison. Have a great rest of your summer.
Great vacation home!
We've vacationed in Ventnor on/off for the past 40 years and always loved it, but especially this year staying at the Compass House. It was roomy, cozy, very clean and beautifully decorated. Everything you need is there and great parking, a huge plus. Pete was excellent to work with; he is very professional and very kind and accomodating...checking in with us periodically to make sure things were okay. The location is great too...close to many great restaurants and not far from the boardwalk...Margate and AC just minutes away. We are planning on staying there again!
Thank you for the nice review Mia and hope the rest of your summer is great.
Nice home in a quiet shore town
Overall my wife and I were very happy with our stay. The house is a good size, affordable, located in a quiet area, about a 10 minute walk to the beach (I was dragging a beach buggy full of stuff and a 1 year old following me).
The first floor is an open floor plan and great place for hanging out. Couches are very comfortable and sun room is a nice place to read. Kitchen has all the dishes, utensils, and enough pots and pans you’ll need to cook up a nice meal.
Second floor bedrooms are a decent size and have enough closet and drawers to unpack. Bathroom is a little tight, but there is a second one on the first floor. Roof patio off of one bedroom was lovely and you could watch the sunset each night.
Outside grill is a good size and works well, although a little dirty. Enough seating for a little dinner outdoors and yard big enough to play. Hose didn’t work so this was a problem, and outdoor shower plumbing is either scalding hot or freezing cold. I informed owner so he may have fixed this. Garage is loaded with lots of beach chairs, umbrellas, and a beach buggy to bring your stuff. Also has bikes and an umbrella stroller which came in handy.
We would stay here again!
Thank you Hassan and we did take care of the house and outdoor shower. Have a great rest of your summmer.
Pictures don't do this justice, owner amazing
My cares melted away as we entered this beautiful home for a week stay. Pete was terrific on updates and checking in with us right up until our stay started, during our stay and the end of our visit.
The pictures don't do this wonderful home justice, it was extremely clean and comfortable and everything we needed was there. Fully stocked kitchen and bathrooms and bed rooms. My 3 year old son wants to live there, he enjoyed the home and the town immensely. We loved how close Ventnor was to other areas we wanted to explore on vacation and coming back to that house at the end of the day was always a pleasure. Definitely booking again for next year!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write such kind words about our house and we look forward to having you and the family back soon. Take care Tim and thank you!!
We spent a week in Ventnor with our daughter and two grandchildren. The house was perfect for us. It had everything we needed and Peter was a pleasure to work with.
