Property Details

Brand New, Family Friendly W/elevator, Sleeps 10-12, Steps From The Beach!

Welcome to the “Sand Castle”! This beautiful, brand new, 2200 square foot home was built in 2013. Be one of the first to enjoy this stunning vacation home that has been designed, built, furnished and stocked with the vacationer in mind. It is a wonderful place to relax, and enjoy time with family and friends. The home is a ½ mile south of the heart of Surf City; you will find various activities, the pier, fishing, boat access, fish markets, restaurants, bars, coffee, surf and gift shops, grocery store and multiple playgrounds, to name a few, all within walking distance. The beach is a very short walk with access just steps away. All of the amenities of Surf City are within walking distance but far enough away that the beaches are not crowded. The house sleeps up to 12 people comfortably.

When you enter the home, you will be able to load your luggage and groceries into the elevator and leave your troubles behind you.

As you head up the stairs to the first level, you will find the first of two master bedrooms with queen bed, private bathroom with shower/garden tub and double sink, wall-mounted flat screen TV/DVD, and private deck with views of the ocean and sound. There is a second bedroom with twin beds, wall-mounted flat screen TV/DVD, and deck. There is a third bedroom with twin over full bunk (and a trundle bed), wall-mounted flat screen TV/DVD, Xbox 360 and games (which can be connected to any TV you wish) and deck. A hall bathroom featuring a shower/tub, and a full size, high efficiency washer and dryer are also featured on this level.

As you go up to the second level, this is the main level of the home. The main level features a spacious great room with comfortable, well-appointed furnishings, a 60 inch wall-mounted flat screen TV with Blue Ray DVD player, with ability to connect to your Netflix or other account through the home’s Wi-Fi, and a Bose wireless stereo system. One of the two couches is a queen sleeper. Off the dining area is a wonderfully cozy sitting area that is a great place to read a book, or catch up with friends and family. Off the great room there is a large deck with views of the ocean, the pier, the sound and the swing bridge. Here you can enjoy your morning coffee while watching the sun-rise or a nice beverage while watching the sun set. Also on this level is the dining/kitchen area. The kitchen features granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and is well stocked for cooking and serving up quick or elaborate meals, it’s up to you! The dining area comfortably seats 15. Off the kitchen is another deck with views of the ocean, pier, sound and swing bridge. This level also has a half bath.

Up one more level and you arrive at the true master suite, which includes elevator access. This level features a king size bed, wall-mounted, 40 inch flat screen TV/DVD, sunken corner tub, shower, and double sink. The master suite has a separate, private office/study, as well as two decks featuring even more amazing views of the ocean, pier, sound and swing bridge. These are some of the best views on the island.

The home is designed to be user and family friendly. The house has central air, Wi-Fi, cable and phone. There is keyless entry to avoid the hassle of “checking in” or getting “locked out”. The elevator, which goes to all four levels, can accommodate persons in a wheelchair or who simply have mobility issues. All six decks are built with Azek composite decking, which means no splinters! We offer a linen service, including sheets, towels and beach towels, for those who wish to travel a little lighter. The house is fully equipped with a pack-n-play, stroller, high chair/booster seat, baby monitor, two baby gates, children’s toys and books, a DVD library, and board games. The kitchen is fully equipped to host large dinner parties with service up to 20, including everything needed to cook and serve your guests. The beach access is a stone’s throw from your doorstep. There is a large outside shower for yourself and little ones coming back from the beach. We also supply beach chairs, beach toys, boogie boards and a wagon for getting it all the short distance to the beach. For outside fun, there is a large back and side yard featuring a grill, corn-hole, horseshoes, ring-toss, children’s swing and outside toys. There is plenty of parking to accommodate up to 5 full size vehicles. The home is professionally cleaned and managed. The owners and the local property manager are always available for any unexpected issues or questions that may arise.

If you have a larger group, you can also rent our larger, beachfront property with pool, which can accommodate up to 20. The two properties are steps away and combined can sleep up to 32 people. Please contact the owner directly to rent both properties.

Our family has been enjoying all that Surf City has to offer for over 30 years. Our hope is that you enjoy your stay and feel as though we have provided everything you need for an amazing vacation. We have taken a lot of time and attention to making this home beautiful, comfortable, clean and family friendly, so that your vacation is as relaxing, and worry free as possible.

About the Owner

My Husband grew up vacationing in Surf City. When he introduced me to Surf City, I fell in love (with him and Surf City). We have been fortunate enough to purchase our own home in Surf City and look forward to many memories here with our own children and extended family who also own homes here.

So lovely ! Huge decks on front and back of home on 3 levels, so you can marvel at views with your group, or quietly enjoy your book. Definitely appreciated the elevator and multiple parking spaces! Beautifully decorated, so clean and everything you need. Great downtown location, so it was easy to get around to all the fabulous restaurants in and out of town.

What a great find! We had a girls' weekend in this property and it was absolutely GORGEOUS. We are picky ladies and we were all blown away by the quality of everything. Could not, did not want for anything - and just a few steps from the beach. We will DEFINITELY be back!

Fantastic Stay!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house for a family get-together (my sister's family came from Europe; we, from NY). We had 4 adults, 2 teenagers and 2 tweeners. The house was more than enough space for all of us for the week and equipped with everything we needed -- from beach towels and linens to kitchen essentials. There were even blankets for chillin' on the couch! We spent lots of time on the porches and were grateful for the huge dining room table where we could all come together for a meal at night!

The house is steps from the beach and there are lots of beach accessories stocked in the store room -- chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, sand toys, a wagon, etc. There is a surf shop within walking distance of the house where you can rent surf boards too. We had a great crew from WB Surf Camp come to us so everyone could surf together. Super thumbs up!

And the outdoor shower deserves its own paragraph. It was one of our favorite things. Best ever.

The owners were very helpful and made checking in and out easy. You will not regret renting here. The beach is amazing. The water was like bath water. And you will never want to leave. But it's not your house, so you will have to. (Did I mention the outdoor shower?)

Thanks to Dana for a great stay!

Owner's Response: Dear Renee,
Thanks for taking the time to write such a great review. It is so rewarding to hear our families had such enjoyable vacations at our home. I am really glad you enjoyed the outside shower as we "upgraded" to get it that size!

From the Owner

As busy professionals, with small children of our own, we wanted a vaction home where we woudl not have to expect the unexpected. We were able to modify the builder's plan to our needs, and design it for worry-free maintenance. We made several upgrades to the plan, structure, decks, railings, appliances, kitchen cabintes, flooring, and paint (to name a few). Most of these items woudl be undetectable to a vistor, but we wanted to build and provide the highest quality vacation home.
