Beach Haven house description

Historic 8 bedroom Victorian in the heart of Beach Haven. Perfect for family gatherings. Huge wrap around porch with plenty of tables and chairs for outdoor living. Original imported stained glass and hardwood floors throughout. Ocean views from upstairs easterly bedrooms. Literally steps to everything that Beach Haven has to offer, including the beach. Park your car in the ample spaces for 4+ cars in the rear of the house and leave them there for the duration of your stay. 8 bedrooms contain 8 single beds, 5 queen beds, 1 full bed, and a queen sleeper. There are 5 new baths, and an outside shower. Large dining room, with additional seating at the table in the original Butler's Pantry and at the dining stools at the granite counters in the kitchen.

For those rainy days (that are always few and far between ) ;) the house is equipped with Wi Fi throughout including the porch areas. The house has Chrome Cast that allows you access to your Netflix, Hulu, ESPN etc. accounts and any other apps and accounts you may have on your personal tablets, pc's or smart phones. Chrome Cast will project them straight to the flat screen in the living room. 4 Cable Equipped TVs each with its own DVD are included. There is also a Red Box located a short stroll down the street at Murphy's supermarket. We also have a portable Sony Bluetooth / Aux / IPod unit that can be moved from room to room including the porch areas - super nice bass! For the more traditional, we also have a stash of board games.

Light, bright, cheerfully decorated with thoughtful provisions for accommodating 20 of all ages. 2 dishwashers, 2 refrigerators, 2 outdoor gas grills, 2 coffeemakers, fully equipped kitchen, and outdoor seating for 20+. Walk to supermarket, restaurants, miniature golf, The Surflight Theatre, The Show Place ice cream parlour with singing waiters. One block from park for free weekly concerts. Cruises to Atlantic City leave from the end of the block. Leave your car in the driveway for your entire vacation. Our beach is headquarters of Beach Haven Rescue / lifeguards with brand new facilities (thanks to Sandy) with bathrooms and showers - no running back to the house with the kiddies to use the facilities. ;)

Located in the heart of Beach Haven's Historic District, on the southern end of Long Beach Island. The house is located just steps from the beach, with cruises to Atlantic City leaving from the end of the street. Entertainment, stores, restaurants, and amusements are all within walking distance. Park your car in the ample room behind our home, and never get in it again for the rest of your stay. Norman Rockwell-esque ~ this is the perfect location!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Holly and Alex are lovers of Victorian architecture (read gluttons for punishment ) ;), have owned and remodeled several in the past, and currently own two Victorian homes. Holly grew up on Long Beach Island and will always consider it home. Alex is one of eight children and is used to the provisions of plenty. We fell in love with the original stained glass windows, imported from England in the 1880's.

Why the Owner Chose Beach Haven:
Tired of looking for the perfect family reunion house for large families, we decided to purchase a home we could tailor make to include the needs of multi generations. The location of our home is perfect for members of every age, as the house is located within walking distance of all attractions and stores. The large 4 sided wrap around porch is the ideal place to relax if you choose not to leave the property.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Perfect for Family Reunions or for families who vacation together. Great for wedding accommodations, bridal parties, wedding dinners. Full 4 sided wraparound porch for plenty of outdoor living. Steps to the beach with beach badges included with rental.
