We stayed May 12 - 19, weather was pretty good most of the week. We stayed in Surf City. I think it was a good choice for us - beach was wide here--seemed narrower up on North end of the island. I also liked being close to the store as we ran there every day and restaurants etc. Our beach... More

In the past 3 years, I have rented a vacation home from Ward Realty 4 times. Each time the staff was pleasant, accommodating, and easy to work with.

Thoroughly enjoyed visiting the island, we fished the pier, and spoke with a gentleman from the Historical Society who was very informative. Thoroughly enjoyed it!
