Vacation Rental Amenities  - 
  
1st floor:

The Family Room provides a great place to come together as a family, play Wii, board games or watch a movie from the DVD collection. It has new wood laminate floors, nice comfortable furniture. It is bright from the 9 foot sliding door leading to a screened front porch.

The screened front porch is great for reading the morning paper before others rise.  At night you can hear the ocean waves in the distance. It has a small table for 2-4 people to eat, plus a wicker love seat and chair. 

Bedroom 1 is in the front corner and has a new Queen bed.  It has double windows on the front and a single window on the side.  There is a wonderful cross breeze and sounds of the ocean  in the distance when weather is moderate and the AC is off.   Also, a full size Armoire for storage.

Bedroom 2 is the master bedroom.  Light and bright with a Queen bed - and with the recent renovation it also has a half bath attached. 

Bedroom 3 is usually where the kids sleep, as I did during the 1960’s!  Twin  beds and a nice big double window overlooking the big backyard.

The full bathroom is all new, completely renovated.  It has a double sink vanity, brightened by a window and complete with a  tub/shower.

The kitchen has new cabinets and a neat refurbished butcher block table that seats 8+.  The adjacent dry bar seats another 2 with plenty of dry storage below.  The kitchen has double windows on the side and another 9 foot slider, opening to the big back deck. Kitchen includes new stainless appliances (frig, stove, dishwasher, microwave), common pots and pans, utensils, glassware, coffee maker, Keurig, and toaster. 

Internet with wifi is available. Cable TV, DVD/VCR with a library of movies, Wii with games and controls. 

The back deck is where you’ll want to be if you stay in for dinner one night.  Large table with umbrella, plus smaller table for serving.

Wide stairs open up to the big back yard and soccer net where kids can play.  A “Renters’ shed" is provided including a beach cart with 4 basic beach chairs and beach tags, plus a wagon to pull the kids.  There is a tub of misc. beach toys and an umbrella.

When you return from the beach, you’ll enjoy a full hot and cold enclosed shower. We provide beach buckets in each room to carry your shower supplies to alfresco showering.

A large charcoal grill is ready for an old fashioned cookout - perhaps while sitting-back having a beer or glass of wine as the kids enjoy the private backyard for playing soccer, horseshoes, bean bag toss or more. Bring your bikes and chain them up to the clothes pole.

2nd floor:

Our 5 bedroom beach house includes 2 bedrooms and a full bath upstairs plus a rear 2nd floor deck.

Bedroom 4 is the corner bedroom with a full size bed with single bunk above, making it flexible so it can accommodate a couple, or 2 kids, or a couple and 1 child.  The upper bunk is only for children 8- 14 years old and under 150 lbs. and you are fully responsible for its use if you choose to use it.

Bedroom 5 is what we call the lighthouse mini-suite because it is decorated with lighthouse and similar to a lighthouse suite at the top!  Moderate in size, but cozy with it’s own full bathroom and queen bed.  It has a separate entrance and 2nd floor sun deck that faces the back yard.

There is a locked off section of the house on 2nd floor not included in rental. 

Policies:
A lease is required with signature, photo identification simply to confirm your identity, and list of tenants. Roughly half of the rental amount is due with lease return to hold your reservation. The other half, along with security deposit and cleaning service fee is due roughly 60 days before check in - exact dates will be in your lease. Unlike a hotel we do not have the ability to re-rent a week last minute; often people reserve their weeks many months or even a year  in advance and then the demand stops. It can go from multiple people wanting the same week to no inquiries after people are all set for their vacation. Therefore we do not offer refunds. We encourage you to purchase 3rd party trip insurance. At our sole discretion, we may choose to work with you try to re-rent your commitment to the lease less a fee for our time. The house is well maintained and we make all reasonable efforts to be sure that things are in working order. We cannot be responsible for things beyond our control such as weather, mandatory evacuations, or unexpected failures including but not limited to mechanical components, appliances, furniture or other components or contents of the house. If there is an unexpected failure, contact us and we will make best effort to resolve the issues as soon as possible but the exact time to resolve it may be beyond our control. We provide added items included but not limited to beach chairs and beach tags but we cannot guarantee that the prior renter will not accidentally take them home with them in which case after you notify us we will make a best effort to have them returned to the house as quickly as possible. Tenants are responsible for any adjustments to secure the house for child safety.  The bunk bed provided is an extra bed and it's use is at tenant's sole discretion and responsibility. We cannot be responsible for items or the use of items left behind by other renters.  Thank you for your understanding. Unlike many rental properties, we do extensive maintenance and improvements on the house; we just cannot guarantee against the unexpected.
