“We had a wonderful time at Chuck’s home—which now we have coined “our home away from home.” My family and my brother’s family went for four days—looking for a secluded safe haven in the middle of our “new normal”. We not only felt safe, but we got a mini zen-like paradise. The backyard overlooks an airport, so the kids (and us) loved watching the planes take off and land, the fire pit and swing were both a big hit, and I really enjoyed the plethora of places to meditate, chill and just relax. The house itself is gorgeous and functional at the same time. A lot of character! Great for families and or a group of girlfriends. Thank you for a wonderful time at the “wiseacre” estate ☺️ and being such a gracious host to our two families and our two doggies!”
Beautiful master bedroom and large open bathroom with double sinks, shower and jacuzzi. Separate 'lou' or toilet behind sliding pocket door. Lots and lots and lots of pampering salts and soaps. All beach supplies provided: beach cart, chairs, umbrella, cooler, towels. Private keyed entrance off back deck and outside shower with h/c water. Huge mulberry tree gives treehouse effect. Beach days and peaceful nights inviting a midnight stroll on the beach.
“Jan was a perfect host and she somehow thought of everything and more; anything we forgot, or even wondered about... and she popped around just enough times to help us with suggestions for dinner and beaches, and give us little treats and make sure we had everything we needed. The location was perfect, and using her beach cart to lug everything to the beach was a lifesaver for this 33 weeks’ pregnant lady 😜!! Spot on location, hospitality, and professionalism. Everything you want in a host. Highly recommend and hope we can come by again to visit!!”

“Everything is as good or better than pictured. The hosts are very accommodating and friendly. My friend and I had rainy weather most of the weekend but were able to relax and read or watch tv in the covered porch area with a fire in the evening. Plenty of food options available on DoorDash, for people not looking to leave the property during the pandemic. We specifically wanted a place that had everything without leaving, and we got exactly that! Will definitely be back!”
