This was our second year for our extended family of 11, and we had a FABULOUS time! Having the 2 separate living spaces allowed the older grandkids to have their own space. It's just a short 3-block walk to the beach, the Pleasure Pier, restaurants, shops, etc. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking and comfort. Especially loved the peaceful times relaxing on the front porch swing. We will DEFINITELY make this a yearly family tradition
This is a fabulous place to relax with a large group or family. The beach and great dining options are an easy 5 minute walk. The neighbors are quiet. Nice area. Pleasure Pier is right there...other nice beaches an easy drive. The house itself is nicely furnished..the kitchen is stocked with everything you need to cook (pots, pans, dishes)...lots of beach towels...board games..baby toys (if needed)...5 stars. We do a lot of beach vacations; Puerto Rico, Bahamas, Florida etc..and this house is one of our new favorites. The upstairs rooms are smaller and the bath has a sloped ceiling, so taking a shower upstairs is interesting if you're tall:)..but it's an older, historic home so it has character, which is actually charming. The downstairs bath tub wouldn't switch from shower to bath mode..I think it may need a handyman..and the roll up auto door seized a few times. Just an FYI to the owner. Other than that everything was really in tip-top shape. Mattresses are mid-firm, very comfortable. Nice bedding, comfortable pillows. Although, an extra blanket or two would be nice? Oh, and maybe some fold-up chairs for the beach, a cooler, beach toys etc? Most expensive beach rental homes have a closet of these things. We did leave 2 boogie boards there on purpose for the next guests..maybe others will do the same? Highly recommended rental home! You'll love it! The Strand is literally a straight shot..just stay on 19th. Easy check-in..owner/agent always quick to respond. Happy Travels!
Located walking distance to the beach, it was a dream house. We really enjoyed our stay. So much more fun than a sterile hotel room.
