The episode, according to HGTV is about…
a “Father-son duo Steve and Kyle are busy accountants that work tirelessly through their hectic season, and when it’s all over they’re ready to relax and get away. They’re looking for a beachfront vacation home for their family in the Wildwoods of New Jersey. Situated on a barrier island, this family beach destination welcomes visitors with the sights and sounds of its legendary boardwalk, set alongside a five-mile stretch of beach. With the help of a local agent, father and son search for an oceanfront crash pad that meets all their needs for under $200,000″
