"A perfect place for our family to come and relax at the beach, you have provided so much for the kids! Thanks Chris". "For a budget home, you have really squeezed a lot in, the kids had a ball with all the toys & climbing gear." "A budget price for a trip to Ocean Grove was great, but the house was so fully stocked with toys, games, and even a real cot for our baby". "For the average cost of a motel, your place is cheaper and we had the whole house, back yard, and could bring our beautiful dog"
