This house was amazing. We stayed over Christmas and the house was all decorated and ready for a perfect Christmas away from home. There were 5 of us staying and there was more than enough space for all of us. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed. It was a great vacation for all of us. We can't wait to stay again!
This is the nicest most fantastic house to stay in. It is huge, spotless and has everything you could want out of a holiday house. Can't wait to stay here again
Thank you Donna & Joe for providing our family with such a great place to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary!
Can't really say enough about the amenities - everything is even better than advertised! No disappointments at all - except the weather! The master suite was fabulous and the grandkids loved the "disco" shower. Loved the comment from our 7 year-old grandson "if I had sheets this soft at home, I would sleep until 10am" !! We did not have an issue with the queen bed in the master suite, as a previous guest did, and we have a king bed at home. We found it to be very comfortable, even when the grandkids came in for their morning snuggle.
All in all, a wonderful home in a lovely quiet area with lots of fun things to do. Donna & Joe are great to deal with and we would definitely recommend it to family & friends.
This home exceeded the expectations of our family this summer (8 adults, 2 toddlers for 7 nights). The place has every amenity you can think of. If you pack more than clothes and beer you've over packed. Back yard patio with TWO large patio sets, massive BBQ, wet bar and cooler outside, tons of yard games and beach toys, fire pit circled with adirondaks and a wood "Shed" (nicer than most other VRBO rentals) with a few cords of seasoned wood for your use . The kitchen, living room and yard are all wired to the stereo which has Satellite radio and every aux input you'd need to hook up any device. They thought about pretty much everything when they reno'd this place, including the outdoor clawfoot tub and shower for getting the kids clean after the beach every day. Oh ya, the beach. The home is only a couple hundred feet from the main beach access. Beautiful driftwood shed at the front of the property has everything including kayaks (4 or 5?), inflatables, coolers, kids toys, beach blankets, and beach chairs. Like I said, just pack your toothbrush and trunks, the rest is ready for you. We are looking forward to staying again.
Our extended family choose this great place to celebrate a 90th birthday. We loved this home as it accommodated family needs from ages 1-90. Donna is a great host, making us feel welcomed and quickly oriented to the home-- inside and out. The place is beautifully designed and equipped with everything to support eating, sleeping and playing. We would be delighted to return another year.
The house was amazing!! From kayaks and beach toys, footballs in the yard, being so close to the beach, games, legos and a huge selection of movies to choose from we didn't once hear the kids say they were bored. The master suite is stunning, the kitchen has everything you could possibly need and the backyard is beautiful for just hanging out with family and friends. We had 4 adults and 6 children staying at the house and everyone had their own space. The side cabin was great for my parents as it gave them a little hide away from everyone else. Thank you Donna and Joe for you hospitality while we were there and thank you for your help with finding flowers for the wedding. Truly once meeting the owners you feel like you have known them a lifetime. We will for sure make a trip back.
