Quiet neighborhood with caring neighbors. I want to keep it that way. Deck parties end at 11pm.
Swim at own risk but beach has 4 sandbars which make it relatively shallow and calm for toddlers. THERE IS NO CURRENT nor riptide by beach. Usually, there are sea nettles after 1st of July. There are extremely few till late July especially if it has been a wet spring/summer. Check for full moon if you would like to skinny dip! No nudity or partial nudity on beach as families may be there. This is a wonderful wide clean beach with few people for miles. Download Tides Near Me app to see when Long Beach has a low tide to walk all the way up to Parker's Creek! Please take a map I will provide to find your way back thru the community should the tide get high.
Hang wet towels over deck railing or on clothesline or zipline. All glassware/crystal stays at my home, not on beach or walks. I have plenty of plastic glasses. No drunken sailors especially on the boat.

PROS: Beautiful home with a lovely porch and yard in a beautiful, quiet community. The upstairs is newly renovated with a state-of-the art kitchen and bathrooms. Terry went out of her way to decorate the home with fresh flowers and offered many extra amenities. Great outdoor activities, tons of activities for kids. CONS: The downstairs is more dated. The bedroom advertised as having 2 queen beds has one pull-out couch and one blow-up mattress, so the sleeping arrangements for some were less comfortable than expected. Communication with Terry was very thorough, yet we still had a major miscommunication about the size of our party which led to unpleasant price re-negotiations during our stay. Check-in lasted 2.5 hours due to an exhaustive tour of the house. The kitchen is lovely but not intuitive; it would be helpful to have a visitor's manual or labels on the light switches.

Interaction with guests

I provide information about relaxation therapy with massage and natural vegetable and fruit cleansing treatments. I can provide meals, laundry and clean-up behind you and your guests. I can also be totally absent for your privacy. Your choice. I have three other homes to hang my hat.
I am an excellent cook to simplify your vacation. Massage therapy, life coaching, hair cuts, coloring and correction treatments, Thai, Indian or French cooking classes (even for kids!) facials, private swimming lessons, group or private water aerobics, relaxation techniques, laundry and meal plan are optional. I can also babysit any age while you go for a sunset kayak paddle, out to the Tiki bar, dinner at Jerry's Place or many free concerts.

About Terry

Retired science teacher who has circumnavigated 24 countries about the world by sailboat. Avid reef diver and sailor. Enjoys fossil hunting the beach.
Favorite places were French Polynesia, Argentina, Nova Scotia, Vanuatu, Tonga, Fiji, New Zealand, Malaysia, Palau, Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia and Thailand. I now race hot smaller yachts in Solomons on Wednesdays.
I live on the premises and love to cook foreign specialties in Thai, Indian, French, Southern MD and Italian cuisine.
Even though I am a serious yacht and dinghy racer, I emphasize relaxation for my guests. I can provide cooking lessons, massage, yoga, stretching, breathing and meditation techniques. I also provide a double ocean kayak which will accommodate a young child as well. Life preservers are provided.
I also have a younger partner, Mark Gyorgy, who is the race governor for Southern Maryland sailing Association, who can teach sailing on his Tartan racing Wicked Good or Buccaneer, Kick 'em Jenny. Each of us have over 50 years of boating experience.
A healthy lifestyle starts within the first minute you arrive at my home. You will feel you have shed worries and pounds within a day's time. My home provides the perfect respite for a telework. Many have had corporate meetings, reunions and retreats here.

Wouldn't life be great if we spent a little of every day truly living it?? You can definitely do it here!

My motto: "Do something every day that scares you just a little!
