Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our 12 year old twin boy and girl and 4 year

old son. The house is well equipped with toys and games for the kids and Carla has beautifully decorated the entire home. Our kids were very happy with the bunkbed and trundle bed and my husband and I were very comfortable in the queen size bed in the loft. We were very happy the entire week we stayed here and Carla is so sweet and accommodating in every way possible. We were able to grill in the backyard and use the fire pit to make Smore's which was really fun. I highly recommend staying here with your family and it's in close proximity to the beach and boardwalk.

A perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Beach House with my husband, 2 kids (2 and 6 year old) and my parents. The place was perfect! The house is cozy, the kitchen is well-equipped, even for my husband, who is a chef. There were a LOT of games to play with. My kids entertained themselves all week long. The beach is at a little distance of walking. I would recommend the house to all families!

distance to beach

  • 5 of 5

I have never stayed at this house but grew up in neighborhood, so am very familiar with the home and area. Neighborhood is close enough to walk to everything and far enough to sleep, very important for families. To get to beach you can easily load up a wagon with beach gear and walk, or the drop off pick up works great too. I am sure if you choose this house fun times will be had and memories made. Miss my beach, enjoy!

The cleanest and coziest beach house ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home and neighborhood. My family and I stayed here this past August. I have 4 kids. 2 teenage boys and a 10 and 6 year old girls. This home was so cozy and we all fit perfectly. There is a master bedroom and another bedroom with two twin beds and also the coach in the living room pulls out to a bed. Everyone was comfortable. The owner Carla is the sweetest and her daughter is super cute. I really didn't have to bring anything besides clothes and money. This house had everything you would need. Washer and dryer. Fully loaded kitchen, blankets pillows. I mean you name it and it was there. Also a nice patio with grill and swing set. The neighborhood is so quit. My son's got to play catch right in front of the house. We saved so much money being able to eat at the house. They have a grocery store right down the street. Also the beach area is walking distance and at this part of the beach it's not too crowded. We did walk to the boardwalk one day. It is a nice walk but not so much walking back with all the stuffed animals the kids won. So the other days we drove. Which took all of 5 min. Everything is so close. Palace play land. The Pier. Tons of shops and restaurants. This seriously was the best vacation my family has ever had. We can't wait to go back. Thank-you Carla for sharing your home. It truly was the best!!!

Beautiful accomodations! Quiet neighborhood!

  • 4 of 5

My sister, her husband and son along with my husband, two sons and my mother all stayed at this beautiful little home for a weeks beach vacation.

The house was beautiful and clean. The yard was family friendly and not on a busy street so it was perfect for the kids to play outside without traffic whizzing by.

The reason it doesn't get 5 stars is because the beach is a good hike away so it can be difficult to get all the beach gear down there - and that means there's not quick trips back to the bathroom which was hard for our kiddos.

The other reason would be the grill. The first day we nearly set the girll on fire! It may have been the grease from the prior tenants but it was scary enough we didn't really use it the rest of the time.

All that being said, Carla was the most amazing host!!!!! She was so nice and helpful! She totally took care of the grill right away (and there is no doubt in my mind that she's addressed why it happened).

In terms of the beach's distance by the end of the week we had a routine down (the walk to the beach being easier than the walk back) we came up with a system for walking down then coming back to pick everyone up.

Overall, we think that this strikes a great balance between a beach vacation with the comforts of home. Thanks Carla for your wonderful hospitality!!!!

The house was charming with lots of openess.

  • 5 of 5

The house was a home and it made you feel that way the moment you got there. The owner was friendly and accommodating and made you feel like family just visiting. The distance from the beach was enough to keep you from the maddening crowds but walkable. Every amenity was provided from BBQ, firepit to roast marshmallows, shower outside to wash off the sand, swing set for the kids. We hated to leave.
