Beach House Notes
To make your vacation easier ....


Here are a few things to keep in mind:

- We will give you the garage door code. It will be a number + Enter.

The Network is 527Bayview Password: bay27view

- Parking is permitted in the assigned space (527), in the garage and in the area immediately in front of the garage door. Please park in these spaces only. Cars parked improperly will be towed.

- Please don’t hang towels over the railing at the front door. The Homeowner’s Association is very particular about this.

- Please be aware that the area in front of the building is a driveway. Children playing there must be mindful of the cars.

- There is a highchair and child safety gate in the closet of the twin bed bedroom. There is an additional gate in the top floor closet. There are outlet protectors in the catch-all drawer in the kitchen.

- Trash day is Monday morning.
- The kitchen trash can slides out from the last cabinet across from the fridge. - There is a recycling can in the laundry room.

- Recycling bins for glass and aluminum are located inside the fenced area in the parking lot. - Do not put paper, plastic or cardboard in the recycling cans or the city won’t pick it up. There is a recycling guide posted in the laundry room. I’m not a recycling expert so I refer to it often.

- The plants on the deck would appreciate a drink of water during your visit if you are lucky and don’t have any rain.

- Murphy’s on Bay Blvd., while convenient, can get expensive. For big shopping on the Island, Acme is better. The best fresh fish is at Pearl Street Market (about 4 blocks south on the Blvd.).

- The kitchen trash can slides out from the last cabinet across from the fridge. There is a recycling can in the laundry room.

- The outside shower is located right outside the garage door.

- There is NO Smoking allowed in the unit. Please use the front or rear decks.

- Use caution when using the gas grill. Turn it off at the main tank when not in use. Propane refills are available at the Getty station.

- There is an iron and ironing board in the Master Bedroom closet.

- If you move furniture around, please put it back in its' original spot.

- There are two Air Conditioning control panels. The unit near the kitchen on the living room level controls the top two floors. The unit in the front hallway controls the bottom two floors.

- Closing the blinds on the big windows in the living room saves a lot of energy (and makes it easier to see the TV, too.)

- Please feel free to use the beach chairs in the garage. There is some crabbing equipment and toys, too. Crab bait is available at Morrison’s Marina store 2 blocks north.

- There is a red wagon in the garage for your use.

Here are a few things we like and places to go:

Pearl Street Market – Gourmet market at Pearl Street and Bay Blvd. Coffee, bakery, fresh fish, take out and cheeses. The best breakfast To Go around. They also deliver to the beach. Worth a visit.

Hand’s – As close to a general store as it can be. Perfect for anything you might have forgotten. Open most nights till 10.

AJ’s Rentals – Great place to rent bikes and pretty much everything else. Next to the Pearl Street Market on Bay Ave.

The Gables on Center Street - For a special night our first choice is The Gables. Sondra & Steve (the owners) will do whatever they can to make sure you have a great time. Dinner is relaxing and the food is great. It’s BYOB and not as expensive (or formal) as it looks.

Bistro 14 – At Bay Village above the fudge shop. Great for lunch or dinner. Wonderful raw bar and a view of the Bay. BYOB.

The Chicken or the Egg (Chegg) – Open 24 hours during the summer. Good breakfast – great wings.

Harvey Cedar’s Seafood Co. Center St. Bayside - Good steamed or broiled fish, excellent for raw clams and oysters. Bring beer and put it on ice while you eat at the counter. Not glamorous but good food and sort of retro.

Holiday Snack Bar – Popular with the locals and a tradition for many families. Stop in for a burger or a piece of their famous cake.

Polly’s Dock – Right on the Bay at Center Street, Polly’s has its own atmosphere and the food – while not fancy – is very good. You can also rent a boat there for a day on the water.

The Engleside Inn – For Sushi and the best prime rib. The Sandbar- out back for drinks or lunch. Live music.

Best Dinner with Kids – Barry’s Do Me a Flavor, Centre Street Best Cake – Holiday Snack Shop, Centre Street

Best Grown Up Bar – The Black Whale.

Best Not-So-Grown-Up Bars – The Sea Shell on the ocean and Bird & Bettys

Best Elephant Ears (a tradition) – The bakery at Bay Village on the Blvd. Best Pizza – California Grill or Bay Village (huge single slices).

Best Italian Food – Stefano’s and Le Dolce Vita (the best).
