Perfect for a family
The listing was accurate. The upstairs is a "great" room (linving room + multi-bed bedroom) with a small bedroom next to the roomy bathroom. People need to be comfortable sleeping "camp" style - near one another. This home is absolutely delightful for a family that wants a quiet place with LOTS of amenities. The house is in a charming and quiet neighborhood with town shops and restaurants all within a few blocks, including two great ice cream shops, and a bike rental place. Having a shaded back yard with a table and grill helped us to save money and gave us a private place to relax. Note: If you want to use the back yard at night, bring bug spray! The front porch is shady in the morning; making it inviting. The dining room is spacious; upstairs, too. The upstairs closet is big with shelves and it also served as an extra changing room. The 1st floor living room got a bit warm but the extra box fan helped to bring in air from the kitchen or we moved upstairs where there is a futon, coffee table, and TV. There are lots of comfy chairs and good lighting. One of my favorite spots was to sit in the rocker by the upstairs window and do my needlepoint. My other favorite was the backyard. The home has many personal touches that I have not previously experienced in rentals such as good books, DVDs, many comfy chairs, towels, linens, CD player, beach supplies, miscellaneous bathroom supplies, and a washer and a dryer. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, serving dishes, plates, glasses, etc. The home has been loved and cared for...making me want to treat it with the same love and respect. By the way, Ocean Grove is a wonderful town to walk and explore. The Great Auditorium is a marvel with wonderful programs and services.
