“Great house and location. If managed better it would be outstanding”
Reviewed December 5, 2011 for a stay in November 2011

We have Thanksgiving every year with extended family/kids and this was the first year in A Shore Thing. Overall we loved the house, plenty of room, great game room/tikibar/hot tub/firepit on lower level, excellent home theather, elevator, and since it's four stories tall the view from the top level was unbelievable. You can see both the ocean and sound from the decks and feels like there are no other houses around. Great location, great house. Unfortunately, we we arrived we discovered that majority of remotes didn't work, majority of lights were burned out, and the kitchen was VERY primitively stocked. We had to purchase batteries, lightbulbs, can opener, pans, pots, utensils, most everything that should be included in a rental house. Surf or Sound reality was very disappointing.
In summary, excellent house, great views, very comfortable, but beware of houses run by Surf or Sound as you'll have to pick up a lot of their slack.
