We found Grampa Jacks Beach House to be very adequate. The furnishings were nice and the house was clean upon our arrival. We enjoyed the Hot Tub and it also had wi-fii. The outside could use a little fixing up, But the location could hardly be better. It is very close to the ocean, several malls and different types of restaurant My son who is confined to a wheelchair had no problem getting around. We would definitely would stay here again, .

First of all we want to thank Janet for opening her family home to us and our "fur-baby" (Tucker adjusted and felt right at home) We loved the location.. close to beach (walking distance) and some other areas of interest without using car, pet friendly . House accommodated all of us. It was fairly furnished .... kitchen appliances (coffee maker, blender, toaster, dishes, glasses, silverware, other utensils) Bath towels supplied, dishwasher, washer / dryer. Hot tub was nice. Neighbors were nice and we met a few of them. The only complaint we had was it just wasn't that clean considering Janet pays someone to do this after each guest leaves. This wasn't just not cleaning after each one ... it was a build up of long term not cleaning very well. Vents were filthy (literally dust balls hanging from the vents), around baseboards, louver doors on closets were very dirty, inside cupboards (I actually washed dishes before we used because the cupboards were icky) I think it could use a little updating such as new wall paint and maybe new flooring in the living room/ down stairs bedroom instead of carpeting beings there is high traffic of going in and out. There was also a broken dining room chair when we got there. I went to sit down and noticed it was not right so I took a picture of it and sent to Janet. There were enough other chairs to use besides that one but was just wondering if anyone ever lets her know of these things. Also I was a little disillusioned by the "fenced -in" back yard. It was a small fenced in patio area with hot tub, small patio table and grill which is nice and private but was looking at something a little different with my dog. But we did walk a lot with him in the neighborhood and he was fine. Also Janet was very nice and always got back to me whenever I had questions. OVERALL WE WOULD STAY THERE AGAIN BECAUSE OF THE LOCATION ...close enough to beach area but far enough away from all the hub-bub noise... just would like it to be really cleaned.. it really needs to be DEEP CLEANED.
Our month long stay was during record-setting low temps and ice storm. The condo is lovely and fairly well equipped. The Hot Tub was not functioning while we were there. The owner was very pleasant to deal with and gave us lots of helpful information. We think the photos are misleading, as the view from the front balcony is of the parking lot, and the rear patio is enclosed by 5 ft fencing and backs up to another building.
The location is fabulous! Easy access to shopping, beach, entertainment and restaurants.

Great place...the house is clean, full of beautiful details, comfortable and really close to the beach, restaurants and other attractions.
My family and a couple friends rented Grampa Jack's beach house in august and had an amazing time! The price is very reasonable compared to other rentals and hotel prices in the area. Large bedrooms, two full baths, nice kitchen and eating space, Tv's in every room and the hot tub was all great!
We stayed for a week and didn't even get to see everything. You are two short blocks from the beach entrance, restaurants and bars up and down the beach and a short walk from a shopping area. This area is perfect for any age group and it is also very clean.
