About the Owner

One born & bred area girl and one "summers-at-the-shore" boy knew the place for them was small town life by the sea. Familiar faces & traditional events in town, elementary school around the corner, beautiful beaches, walking & biking through town, and wonderful neighbors was the lifestyle we wanted for our young family. The town of Spring Lake is a special place, to which our many guests attest - visit, after visit, after visit.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely love this vacation home, so much that we've rented it 3 times over the past 5 years. The owners make you feel like it's your home and are always available, if needed. Over the years they beautifully updated their home and we benefit :) We will continue to rent this home and continue to make our summer memories here !

Thank you for the Lovely Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time here - yet again! - perfect for the 5 of us & occasional grandparents. We love this house and can't thank you enough for leaving all the kid & beach stuff for us - those things make a world of difference especially since we come from afar.

Owner kept complete deposit accusing us of damages

  • 1 of 5

We absolutely do not recommend this rental property. This house is beautiful and the right price but it is not a rental property. This is the owner's personal home and they micromanage it in an obsessive manner that makes being a guest there miserable. They were apparently watching us and having their neighbors watch us during the duration of our stay and, unbeknownst to us, simultaneously creating lists of complaints against us. They accused us of unsubstantiated excessive damage in multi-paged legal documents delivered by certified mail after the conclusion of the rental.

Accused damages included (but were not limited to - remember this was a multipage document): excessive water use and excessive sand in the laundry machine - at a beach rental house; missing silverware, two stained oven mitts, a missing bath towel and such. Furthermore, they sent in their cleaning person at a specific day and time (always Fridays) whether that is convenient for your plans or not. Again, it is their house and you are made to feel like you are a guest who needs to follow their rules as opposed to a renting user with associated rights.

We were terribly sad to see the rental end this way and would caution anyone from renting this property. They are completely ignorant of normal rental arrangements because this is their home - NOT A RENTAL.

We have rented high end homes (rental costs as high as $10,000/week) for years around the world through both VacationRentals.com and VRBO and never had a problem and never written a complaint. BE FOREWARNED. THIS IS NOT A SAFE RENTAL.

Owner's Response: Dear Travelers, The person who wrote this review is NOT BEING HONEST. The review was written as if they stayed at the house, when in fact they stayed elsewhere, and allowed 3x the number of people the house is approved & advertised for to use the house. PLEASE MAKE ALL QUERIES TO US - we're happy to answer! OUR REPEAT FAMILIES CAN'T BE WRONG. With over 10 years of renting (9 with Vacation Rentals), 30 very happy families, and Long before Vacation Rentals allowed reviews, we have consistently received praise for us & our property. In fact, we have had many repeat guests - including 3 families from Summer of 2015 returning for 2016! We are dedicated to ensuring every guest finds the condition of our property to be what was advertised. Contact VacationRentals; they can verify our history and standing with them. THERE IS NOTHING UNSAFE or UNFAIR about our property. THIS IS REVIEW was POSTED to denigrate and slander us, without the guests accepting responsibility for the damages to the property.

Location

From the Owner

This charming home has links to the historic Lewis Lumber Yard which occupied several blocks in this part of town. Mr. Lewis built a row of homes across the street for his employees, while our home was most likely built for an over-see-er or manager. Original floors and trim were in excellent shape when we purchased the home & have been maintained. Renovations to the home have been completed with the historic value of the home in mind, in order to preserve the authenticity of the dwelling.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Golf : Public: Bel Air, Quail Ridge; Private: Spring Lake Nearest Train : Spring Lake - just blocks away Nearest Restaurant : Many! Cafes & casual dining just blocks away. Nearest Beach : Spring Lake - just blocks away Car: not necessary

Just blocks from beautiful beaches, park, town, and train.

Lovely downtown shopping with quaint shops & restaurants.

In-town outdoor hard court tennis courts (7), nearby miniature golf, boating, parasailing and water activities.
