5/5 Excellent

Wonderful long weekend!
Stayed with a family group of 4 adults and 4 kids aged 1 - 8, and everyone had a wonderful time. Communication with the owner was absolutely stellar from booking all the way through our stay, and we found the house clean and ready for us. The older kids enjoyed the bunk beds, playing outside and the outdoor shower post-beach, and the high chair and pack n play were perfect for my 1 year old nephew. The beach, inlet and bay are steps away, and the street was quiet. The house has a lot of character, and is well-kept and clean with comfortable beds and plenty of blankets. We are long-time shore goers but this was our first time in Strathmere and we are hooked! This vacation and this house were exactly what we needed. Thanks again, Wade and Maraika!!!

5/5 Excellent

Awesome place
Wade and Maraika’s house was exactly what our family needed for a vacation at the beach. It was cozy and just a block from the water. Would definitely recommend!
