Had a wonderful stay at the Crow’s Nest. Short walk to everything: beach, pool, shopping and restaurants. The house was very clean, well stocked (including beach stuff) and decorated amazingly. LOVED that the two bedrooms had KING beds. The kids loved the bunk room. Can’t wait to come back!!

The location of the house is perfect not to far from the beach and not far from the boardwalk. The house is beautiful enough space for 6 of us. Definitely going back this summer.

Good house and close to beach    Jul 29, 2019

review star

House was nice, not to far from beach and came with some beach toys/chairs to use if needed. Kitchen could have had a few more pots/pans to cook with but other than that it was pretty well stocked if you wanted to cook a meal. All rooms and restrooms were clean and met all expectations. I liked the fact that there was a washer and dryer to wash linens and clothes if needed. Overall I felt it was worth what we paid for a week rental and would enjoy coming back next year.

The Crow's Nest was beautiful, spacious, and accommodated our family of 10 perfectly. The home was located about 2 minutes to the pool and about 5 minutes to the beach. We enjoyed the hot tub and the grill as well! The home was clean. We had an amazing time and would go back again!

Our family rented The Crow’s Nest in June and it was everything we hoped it would be! Since it sleeps 10, it would be helpful to have additional seating in the living room. All in all it was wonderful!

The home is just as pictured and well decorated. Great location and very easy walk to the beach. We enjoyed a nice dinner at Camilles, walking distance also.
It was nice they had a washer and dryer. Also corn hole boards, beach chairs, boogy boards, and some floats.
Maintenance was quick to respond on 2 issues.



Wonderful House    Oct 11, 2018

My family really enjoyed this house. It was well decorated and lived well. We especially enjoyed the front porch seating and fenced in front yard with our small kids. The house is also well located and a very quick walk to the beach. Short enough that you can do it with two small kids on your hips.

Beautiful Home    Jul 28, 2018

review star

Was a beautiful home and even more impressive in person. Was just a 2 minute walk to the beach. Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this home. Was easily accessible for our family member with a walker. Loved the large living and dining space. The open concept floor plan was great with 7 of us to have enough space to spread out but still be able to have conversation. The community pool was very nice and the girls loved going there everyday. Would definitely use this location again!

The Crows Nest was absolutely adorable. The new owners did a great job with the updates. There were 2 king size beds, 2 sets of bunk beds, and a sleeper it comfortably slept our family of 10. The beach was just a short 2 block walk. washer/dryer on site made going home much more desirable because now i don't have 3 days worth of laundry to do. Kitchen appliances were new and kitchen was well stocked with dinnerware/utensils. Driveway holds 2-3 vehicles. Would definitely recommend this cute little cottage. Restaurant suggestions - definitely McGuire's. Attraction suggestions - definitely a fishing charter. We went on the American Spirit Party Boat and had a ton of fun. Ages of our group are 3 years - 42 years.

"First and foremost, the rental company that helped me, the employees Were so kind and welcoming. They had the warm hospitality that all tourists deserve to have. Especially if they're out of towners. The last thing someone wants to deal with is a rude and unfriendly staff that they are paying money to. From the minute I walked through the doors up until the very last min we had there, I felt like pure royalty. The house is Decorated with the latest trends and colors. It is obvious that a good amount of time went into making this home something right out of a movie. The bathrooms were impeccable. There were a few downsides but not something that would keep me from returning The house is gorgeous, but definitely not family friendly if you've got small children. There were a few things that made the place not very practical. The dining room table is so gorgeous and elaborate that it made me feel afraid to have meals at it. I was scared I'd ruin some of the decorations by removing them and not having a safe place to store them. We ate at the counter. With the amount of elequant pillows and some decorations, there needs to be a storage bin or something to place all of them in. Otherwise there thrown on floor The washer and dryer could be a hit or miss for someone. It's located in the back of the garage. I didn't mind it. But not convenient. As far as the outside of the property is conserved, while the grass is stunning and beautiful there's not a sidewalk to the front door from the driveway. So you have to walk to the end of driveway down the street sidewalk or you had to walk through the grass. There was no key to garage so you couldn't enter that way. It is a corner house as well. There were lots of people constantly cutting through the yard and driveway on there walk to the beach. I always felt on edge. On a positive note, the garage is stocked full of everything you'd need to play with or sit on for the beach. That was awesome! "
