About this listing
Ten minutes from the Peace Bridge. This 2-story house has a large living room and deck. Awesome Beach, and calm water are about 300 feet outside your door. Large lawn. Less than a 1/2 mile to the Friendship Trail bike path. Easy drive to Niagara Falls, Buffalo, Toronto.
Crescent Beach is one of the nicest beaches on the Canadian shoreline.
The bike path and the beach and shallow water are the big attractions, as well as being so close to downtown Buffalo.
The house is situated beautifully on Crescent Beach. I cannot say enough about how picturesque, serene and inviting the beach is - along with the entire "neighborhood". Perfect for quiet walks, playing with children and collecting driftwood for the shared bonfire on the beach.
There is a lake view from the windows you see in the picture (and this picture does not do the first floor of this house justice) is exactly what you want in a beach vacation home (if you are not lake front, that is - but Evan has lake front property(ies) available as well.) The sitting area is comfortable and cozy and you may find yourself falling asleep on the comfortable couch (we took an afternoon nap there each day). The deck off of this sitting room is an excellent place to have your meals and enjoy the summer air.
This is an great house for a family but note there is only one large bed - the rest are twins - so if you are two couples travelling together, ask Evan about other options.
The shared grill outside worked wonderfully for us and I met some other renters who stayed at this property over and over again. Everyone staying in the area was very friendly and helpful because we weren't really sure where to go when we got there. Not having someone to meet us - was one of the only negatives to this listing. The others included the lack of a key - which we were fine with but this may make others nervous as the laundry room in the hallway is shared; the lack of air conditioning - which did not make it too hot but kept it consistently damp in the house - and the $100 cleaning fee which, from personal experience seems high, and then you are asked to strip the beds and start the laundry.
I think that the price of this rental is very good for the experience. I would recommend this house, and especially this area to anyone. It is very close to Buffalo and you could certainly have an extended stay and commute with no trouble whatsoever. I would definitely stay here again but I would opt for one of the larger houses on the property and bring my children and grandchildren.
