Spring Break
We really enjoyed our stay at The Anchorage. The location was wonderful and I would have been happy to have just stayed there all week without going anywhere else!

A Great Location
We had a great stay with our family! We wanted a quiet beach for our toddlers to be able to run and play and we got just that. The property is super dated and could use some updates, but you can’t beat the value or location! The pictures online are an accurate depiction.

Fantastic home!!!
We LOVED this property!! The pictures do not do the property any justice!! Everything was perfect and the home is set up so perfect for our family and 2nd family that came with us. We all were so sad to leave and will definitely coming back!!

Clean, cozy, just steps from the beach!
This is not a fancy, modern, cold and sleek house - this is a home that was clearly built with love and by owners who want to share their love of the beach with others! It is an older home that doesn't appear to have been updated recently, HOWEVER - The home was clean, fully furnished with everything we needed, and was RIGHT ON THE BEACH! I could see my family on the beach from the kitchen window! We loved everything about the Anchorage and I hope we can stay here again on our next beach trip!

The Anchorage was perfect for our family's beach vacation! This is not a sleek, modern, shiny new home - no marble or silver or steel. It is a beach retreat, with a warmly decorated interior with everything you need to enjoy time at the beach. The kitchen was FULLY stocked with every cooking utensil/item we needed. The location was perfect - I could look out the kitchen window and see the kids on the beach! It was close enough that my young daughter could run back up to the house for something and we didn't have to pack up and haul everything back to the house! I hope we can return soon!

Like having a private beach!
What a great place to vacation! There were 4 adults and two kids. Staying directly on the beach was so great for my father who tires easily and made it easy to go back for breaks and food. Wonderful details such as outside showers to rinse the sand off before going inside and even a more private full temperature controlled shower under the house! Located down a small street with houses on large-ish lots meant we felt like we had a huge chunk of beach to ourselves.

Great property overall. The beach berm was hard to navigate, but we understand the need for it. The Media Comm package was unusable, but little used.

This is an older property, with older furnishings and decor, but we liked it because of that. Comfortable and felt like you could relax because it wasn’t all foo-fooey. The kitchen is a great size, so a lot of people could be in the kitchen at the same time. It’s nice that all the living space is on one floor. We would stay there again - felt very homey. Great location right on the beach and the boardwalk and outside showers were great.

The house was very comfortable and well-appointed. Downstairs deck area was fantastic. We enjoyed the screened porch and the easy walkway to the beach. No complaints; we had a great visit.

LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION!! This is a great house with Amazing views!! The beach is private and not crowded at all. The management is very responsive to any questions. Like a previous person said make sure to bring extra toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, etc. No big deal we just picked some up with our normal groceries. Otherwise the kitchen was fully stocked with any dishes or cookware we needed. Awesome family vacation!

Very clean and cozy beach house. It was well equipped with everything we needed (except for paper towels and extra trashbags) with cute vintage beach decor, and nice personal touches that make it feel like home. And you cant beat the ocean views from the living room, deck, master and kitchen. The screened in porch was a nice place to relax especially when it rained, though the screen door could use a new latch. Overall a quiet area, away from public beaches, with plenty of space from neighbors and great ocean views. A fantastic beach vacation!

We had a great time there. The least favorite thing would be the living area furniture was very uncomfortable and a dining table would have been perfect.

Answer:

Nearly all of our properties, excluding some of the condos, offer our Beach Gear program that provides you a rental credit along with your reservation to rent gear such as chairs, umbrellas, bikes, carts, etc.  Most properties do not provide these types of things normally although from time to time you will find them as items that have been left by previous guests.  You can see more information about the Beach Gear program by clicking here.
