Avon By The Sea house description
We are so thankful that this grand old lady of Avon, standing just 1000 ft. from the Atlantic Ocean since approx. 1880, was spared from damage during the hurricane. The house has been fully renovated with all the modern amenities and has been totally redecorated. The entire kitchen is new with stainless steel appliances and granite counters. One of its most enjoyable features is the wrap-around porch to catch the sea breeze. The first floor has, in addition to the new kitchen, a very sunny living room (with TV, DVD/VCR, and stereo), large dining room, and a half bath. Up the antique stairway is a very bright, roomy Master Bedroom (w/ King-size bed which can be separated into 2 separate twins) , a new full bathroom complete with marble topped double sink vanity and soaker tub, a 2nd bedroom with a queen bed and small balcony, and a 3rd bedroom with a twin bed (or King if trundle is opened) . There is also a large outdoor shower, a gas grill, washer/dryer, and central air-conditioning. An attached cottage that is smaller is also available. This house has a wonderful feeling, like stepping back into a calmer time.
The little town of Avon further enhances this sense for it is full of architectural gems and has a wonderfully old-fashioned boardwalk where people jog, stroll, or sit and watch the ocean from early morning until night but is not busy with commercial establishments or and hustle and bustle. All forms of water sports (surfing, boating, and fishing) are available as are nearby golfing, tennis, live music and theater, and fine dining. In this family-oriented town the beach is white sand and very clean with an excellent surf. A pretty lake with swans defines one end of Avon while the Shark River defines the other end. It's a 5 block walk inland to town and minutes drive to larger shopping centers.

Great Memorial Day weekend
Great Memorial Day weekend
We had a perfect weekend staying here on Memorial Day weekend. The house was beautiful and comfortable, and met our expectations based on the description. Owners were courteous and responsive. We'd come back, and would highly recommend it to friends!

My husband and I stayed in this house last summer for a month and we loved it. It was very comfortable and well set up and equipped. The the owner was easy to deal with and very responsive. The description of the location, layout and amenities are accurate. We liked the fact that It only took a couple of minutes to walk to the beach and the beach is clean and not too crowded. My husband rode his bike every day (left it locked on the porch with no problem after his ride) and enjoyed doing so because the area around the neighborhood is flat. We did not find many good restaurants right there, but it was not far to go to other areas, like Ocean Grove which has wonderful places to eat. I highly recommend this vacation home. Amy
