Myoshin's home is a special place and we enjoyed every moment of our week-long stay. She's a great host and communicator, available via email, phone and text and answering all of our questions quickly. The house is unique to the area - perhaps the only one with true charm and character. Highly recommend if you're looking for a low-key getaway at the Jersey Shore. Thank you!
We had a wonderful week in late August 2012 at Myoshin and Kevin's beach house and highly recommend it to anyone looking for an Ocean City getaway. Our group was two young families with two infants and a 2.5-year-old, and the house was extremely family-friendly. Some other plusses:
- Close to the beach. Great, short walk; awesome, central entrance location on boardwalk
- Just a few blocks from some of our favorite restaurants and spots, like the Fractured Prune donut shoppe
- Deck was great for grilling, and outdoor shower was fantastic
- Shabby chic decor really grew on us. We were surprised at first how old the house looked from outside, but it was extremely nice on inside and very comfortable (A/C window units did the job just fine).
My one and only critique of the house was the peach tree off the deck, which shed a great deal of fruit. Every day I found myself picking up 10 or so pieces of fruit-fly-covered peach carcases. Hopefully they will either harvest the tree sooner in the season or remove it.
Still, even here there is a silver lining: The back deck was home to several butterfly bushes which were teeming with butterflies. About 10 or so at any given time. My daughter was in heaven following them around, and inspecting the leaves for caterpillars.
Thanks for a memorable, happy vacation, Myoshin and Kevin!
This house is highly recommended by us.
Super location, only 2 blocks from the beach. The itself is really beautiful while the boardwalk has plenty of eating options and entertainment - particularly for kids.
The house itself has 4 large bedrooms, separate kitchen, separate dining room and extremely large sitting room. There are also two lovely patio areas on separate sides of the house to avail of sun most of the day.
Myo and Kevin were really great hosts in terms of responding to our queries and offering advice on what to do and where to go.
We genuinely hope to return to their home again some day in the future.
