    A great beach home for the whole family! Kitchen is well stocked and loved the ice maker!

    The rental was a great location to the beach! We had everything thing plus more for 9 woman to cook with! Ice maker was a plus. The outside lift was a pleasant & appreciated surprise!! Decor was so very appealing & relevant to the beach atmosphere!
    My minuses: seating…all of it was so very uncomfortable! Barstools were too high for short fluffy gals! Could not pull them in once we finally got seated…just not a good choice. The living room sofas were the same…not for short gals! No place to kickback & truly relax. Need item to put feet up. TV’s were difficult to navigate but that is the same with others. Might provide better instructions for EACH TV. Last, lighting was beautiful but not ample for putting on makeup nor shaving I would guess. My bedroom bath was very dim.

    The house is really nice and spacious. Everything was clean and comfortable. The two fridges, one up and one down are really nice. One of the thoughtful things Jan & Jerry did was allow you access to the two story lift. Talk about a back saver not carrying all of the stuff up and down the stairs was so nice. Another wonderful thing is the house has a whole house generator, not that we needed it this trip but other trips have been ruined do to a three day power outage. Four adults, five kids and two dogs had an absolute blast.

    Loved how close to the beach the house is. Love the outdoor shower and corn hole boards. Lots of beds and plenty of kitchen seating.

    House and stay was nice, however the owner will show up at this beach house unannounced to check up on you. Was at the beach enjoying time with the family and the owner asked for us to come back to the beach house so that a technician could work on something that we never reported on. We were totally disappointed by the situation. Additionally, maintenance guys showed up unannounced the following morning to work on the generator.
    Manager response:
    Monica, thank you for sharing your feedback and bringing these issues to our attention. The person you met was not the owner but a private contractor who was not due to work on the home until after checkout. We take these concerns very seriously, we will follow up with the appropriate parties to ensure that we are providing our guests with the most caring and professional service. We look forward to hosting you for a great stay in the future.

    This house was spacious, beautifully decorated and a short distance from the beach. Great bathrooms and spacious bedrooms plus shower downstairs and a fenced yard is a plus. A perfect place to make great memories with family and friends.

    We needed to get away from quarantine for a bit but still stay safe, and Jan & Jerry’s Sandbox was a perfect home for us to do so. Easy access to the beach, and a fully equipped new home made for a relaxing week away.

    The water wasn’t your problem. It was terrible, we spent both days at the beach then came home to no water. It was terrible!!!! Also there is something wrong with the dryer, didn’t work most of the time.
    Lisa C. Jun 2020
    Beautiful home with great amenities! Perfect beach decor and top of the line appliances. Great kitchen with all the necessities and more. Lots of open space downstairs for games and cooking. Walking distance to the beach. I would highly recommend and hope to rent this property again!
    Jessica A. Jun 2020

    Kevin W. Jun 2020
    We had a wonderful time staying in the beautiful house. It was perfect. Under the house was awesome, it was fenced as well as the back yard. So our dogs were able to enjoy it with us instead of being put in the back yard.
    Donyelle J. Jun 2020

    Marquita A. Jun 2020
    Plenty of room Home was very clean and plenty of dishes for use. Even had a refrigerator outside which was wonderful for outdoor activities. The kids loved the fire pit as well. I bought supplies to make s’mores just for that. Would DEFINITELY stay here again
    Paul R. Jun 2020
    A great house with a very nice layout. Tons of space for 1 or 2 families. The downstairs/outdoor area is open, bright and a great place for lounging.

    A short walk to the beach too. Would definitely come back!
    Jason B. May 2020
    Beautiful new home with incredible amenities. We had 6 adults and 6 kids and it was perfect! The space below the house was awesome! We spent a lot of our time there hanging out and eating together. We hope to stay here again!
    Ramona H. May 2020
    House was super clean and beautifully decorated. Stocked with everything even down to trash bags and dish soap, bathroom shampoo, conditioner and shower gel. We loved the Two extra fridges on the bottom floor and even have cornhole and horshoes. Grill was nice as well. Comes with propane too. We brought our own golf cart and it was just the perfect location even if you wanted to just walk. We had a group of four adults and seven children so layout was just perfect for us.
