We booked this place for a girls weekend, and I have to admit, after reading reviews online, I was very nervous. Luckily for us, we had a great time. The house is less than a block from the beach and boardwalk and has off-street parking. The location was so convenient that we were willing to look past going down two flights of stairs to use the outdoor shower. The showers are outside. There are two stalls that are clean and have locks on the doors. There is a roof over the showers, so no worries about privacy. We regretted not bringing our own towels, because the towels provided barely covered our torsos, and we are not large people. If we stay there again, I will bring a bathrobe to walk to and from the shower. Every floor has a powder room that is shared between four rooms. We never had to wait to use the bathroom.The house was very clean, if a little out-dated. It felt like spending the weekend at an older relatives home. The owner is very sweet and helpful, and keeps to herself. The front porch is lovely. You can sit outside on the rocking chairs and relax, or play board games at the tables.
