Why Terry Merkle chose A-Zone
We purchased the house from the original owner in the winter of 2012 as a true “fixer upper”. Structurally the house was sound, but after 50 years, it needed a complete overall both inside and out. So we took down all the siding and replaced all the windows. We tore out all the carpeting and refinished the original hardwood floors. We also undertook some remodeling in the kitchen and bathrooms and painted the interior in beachy pastel colors from top to bottom. In addition, we added a large covered patio (with EP Henry pavers) and an outdoor shower in the back yard. We choose this location in Brigantine because we felt it has the best of both worlds. The double sized lot provides a great deal of privacy with a privacy fence surrounding the entire back yard. Yet there is still close proximity to the beach, as well as the boardwalk, bars and restaurants, entertainment, and outlet shopping of Atlantic City. But what people tell us they really enjoy most is coming back from the beach and relaxing in the privacy of the big outside patio. I've been told 'it's like being in your own private tropical resort'.

We had a great experience at this home. The house was well-stocked, very comfortable. The beaches and area are amazing.
House was great, pictures showed ceiling fans outback on patio, but they were not there, they were only lights, during our week the ceiling fans would have been great.. Lawn should have been mowed a little shorter for our liking since it was over grown by Wednesday . Other then that no complaints.
We had a great time in Brigantine, and this property was wonderful. The house is well stocked, the location is perfect, there was plenty of room for the 12 of us, and the backyard area is fabulous. Terry was absolutely excellent, very quick with communication and very accommodating. The beach in this area is quiet and clean and great for families.
Great back yard for hanging out.
The house was fine. The back patio had a built in grill, sink and granite counter top. We spent our time enjoying the outside area most of our time time here. The bedrooms were bright and colorful. We walked the 2 blocks to the beach and to get ice cream with no problems.
The house was not as clean as I expected. The linens were neatly laid on each bed...for us to make. The house rules instructed us to clean the back patio, kitchen and bathrooms before we left. This is my 3rd vrbo rental and the first where we had to make our beds and we were instructed to clean the place before leaving. I would never leave a mess behind but it seemed odd being told to clean.
First, I take exception to the statement the house not being clean. The house is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected after each and every guest and in seven years of renting to over fifty different guests, this is the very first time I've had a complaint about cleanliness.
The clean linens are set on top of each bed for two reasons: first, so the guest knows they are clean and also given that all ten beds are rarely used by guests, it helps the cleaning crew know what linens need cleaning after the guest leaves.
I do apologize for the mix up in cleaning instructions. Some people pay for cleaning and others save on the cleaning fee by cleaning it themselves. In this case the wrong instructions were left out. This guest paid for cleaning, but was left the instructions as if they were to clean themselves. One other note, in cases where guests clean themselves, the cleaning service still comes in and disinfects and touches up.
Loved our stay !!
We had a great time at your home Terry, thanks for sharing it with us ... I loved the patio and yard although it rained the weekend we were there just having a good time with friends there made it worthwhile ! Best wishes !!
Great comfortable house
Good size for the 8 of us, lots of space, nice yard with terrific outdoor bbq and bar area, good kitchen as we ate in for most meals, overall 10 out of 10, great location only 2 blks to beach,
A few suggestions-- need some kind of pest control for backyard,lots of mosquitos, need a new toaster, and more knives (only had 5 dinner knives), and would be nice to have second , or third tv upstairs for other guests use in bedrooms
But NO major complaints, loved staying there and Terry is very quick to respond!!
