“I dare say the word magic applies here! How can a place be this elegant, this wide open, and yet feel so quaint, just like home? How can an experience be quirky, fun, and yet entirely serene and relaxing at the same time? Wiseacre Estate is this and so much more! You owe yourself this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. You get eclectic art, uncommon architecture, an impressive landscape, a perfect location, a peaceful stay. What you get is MAGIC! But even better than magic… you get Chuck! Three hundred reviews cannot even come close to describing this “SuperHost with the Most”! Chuck is a RARE RARE blend of all of society’s niceties, like professionalism, politeness, charm, entertainment, discretion, and class. He is your present-day Mr. Roarke from the Fantasy Island television series of long ago, rolled up with a bit of Martha Stewart, and mixed in with whoever is your ideal Butler! His little leprechaun-like courtesies (i.e., covertly replacing the tissue box or having coffee brewed and ready for the day) will leave you feeling as though you are living a life of luxury, perhaps even a sweet little fairy tale of a life! If Wiseacre Estate is the dessert, Chuck is the gigantic cherry on top! I am going back for seconds every chance I get! I also genuinely wish this taste of peace and joy for all you beautiful traveling souls out there! I sincerely invite you to travel back in time at the enchanted Wiseacre Estate where Chuck makes the world seem absolutely surreal. (Oh, and the beds are deliciously comfortable, if you are coming for some well-needed rest!!!) A million thanks, Chuck Darling!”
The barn is rustic, cozy and quiet. Being an over 100 year old structure means that it has a few quirks, which we have tried to explain as best we can through the pictures, so we hope it piques the interest of the right guests who can come and enjoy their stay here!
“This place is absolutely amazing! Perfect location less than 10 min from the beach and the best sunset destination. You won't regret trying it out! Not a full kitchen but the toaster oven works great and the hosts are beyond accommodating and very friendly. I will definitely stay here again!”

“Want a beautiful beach space for a getaway? This is it. Only 15 feet from the private access point, the beach is right there for you to enjoy. Want to get away from the sun for a bit, the garden is the perfect shaded area (and the charcoal grill makes for an awesome cookout). Big beds and a roomy shower give you comforts of home. Check the closets for beach umbrellas. Living space is easy and comfortable. Perfect beach getaway. We will be coming back.”
