      We stayed at one of the cottages-Fairways. We are well travelled in the US and abroad and we put this as one of our top vacations ever. We were treated like royalty. Before our arrival we worked with Toni of Ocean House to plan the trip. From the moment we arrived at Ocean House, our every need was met and exceeded. We were greeted by name and the staff went above and beyond what we are accustomed to. The food was excellent. The accommodations were excellent. The staff was personable. We traveled with a family of 12 with 6 children ranging in ages from 18 months to 13 years. It is the perfect trip for a family of three generations. I would recommend this location to anyone. Our travel agent, Deborah Barth at Brownell suggested it. We just wanted to go somewhere as a family where we could find something for all ages. Our travel agent hit a home run by handling all reservations; payments; contracts; and giving us a point of contact at Ocean House.

      Very expensive and not perfect but we still go back year after year

      The Ocean House is a gorgeous property - the hotel and the beach are beautiful. The food, which was once not so great, has vastly improved. The service is sometimes not commensurate with the price tag in the summer, but at the end of the day, the pros outweigh the cons and we go back every year.
