QUIET & RELAXING SETTING
Updated with modern amenities but retaining its vintage charm, our circa 1920s guest house is ideally located on a quiet, family-friendly street, 4 blocks from the beach/boardwalk and 2 blocks from dining and shopping on Main Street. Park your car and walk or ride a bike to anything you need in town.

ALL THE COMFORTS OF HOME
— A bright, updated, and spacious cook's kitchen with granite countertops, fully equipped with everything you need to prepare meals

— A sunny breakfast room that seats 4 people; opens to a large, private deck, where you'll enjoy the great ocean breezes with your morning coffee or a glass of wine

— A cozy family room with ceiling fan and air conditioning, high-definition flat-screen TV, and Wi-Fi

— 1 queen bed and 2 twin beds (trundle bed style), each appointed with ceiling fans, room-darkening blinds, and air conditioning

— A clean, updated bathroom, nicely sized, with granite-topped vanity, full-size bathtub, custom-tiled shower, and lots of storage

— 900 square feet of total living space + extra space to relax outdoors on the private deck

— Includes 2 beach tags, 4 beach chairs, Kenmore gas grill

THOUGHTFUL ATTENTION TO DETAIL
This beach house is furnished, decorated and equipped to provide an extraordinary Jersey Shore vacation experience for you and your family. You will not be disappointed with these accommodations!

This guest house is the entire 2nd floor of a two-family home (1st floor is owner occupied). There is a separate entrance at the rear of the property via the spacious 2nd-story deck. Owners are easily accessible to answer questions and provide recommendations, but completely respectful of your privacy. The deck overlooks beautiful flower gardens in the park-like back yard. Sit back and enjoy your view of the treetops around you and the breezy ocean air.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2007

          About the owner: Hello, my name is Christine; I grew up in Bucks County, PA, and have been enjoying the Jersey Shore since I was 3 years old. It is my pleasure to welcome guests into our special little haven at the beach and to provide you with an exceptional vacation experience while you are visiting Belmar.

          Why the Owner Chose Belmar:
          Belmar is consistently ranked among New Jersey's Top Ten Beaches and was voted the #1 Central Jersey beach in 2013. It is a family-friendly, small-town beach community that's easily accessible from many points in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, and major airports. You can walk or ride a bike to nearly everything in town that you need. We have a beautiful new boardwalk and clean, lifeguard-protected beaches with restroom facilities and shower pads at each beach entrance to rinse off before you leave the beach. The Belmar Marina offers half-day and full-day fishing charters, miniature golf, and a restaurant/tiki bar (9th Ave. Pier), where you can watch stunning sunsets over the Shark River. There are so many fun things to do around the Belmar area, including: — Belmar Restaurant Tour in March — Town-wide yard sale in May and September — New Jersey Seafood Festival in June — Friday-night concerts in Pyanoe Plaza (9th and Main Streets) — Military Appreciation Day — Skimboard contest (SkimBash) in June — Saturday-night movies on the beach in July & August — Summer farmer’s market on weekends — The Belmar 5 and Belmar Chase 5K — NJ Sandcastle Contest in July — Italian Festival in September — Foster's Belmar Pro Surfing competition in September In addition, the area has so many great restaurants to delight every appetite. We have fine dining, casual eateries, Italian, vegetarian, Mexican/Tex-Mex, seafood, Chinese, sushi, bagelries and coffee shops, ice cream and sweet treats, pizza places, sandwich shops, and pub grub. We'd be happy to recommend some of our favorites. In addition to all that Belmar has to offer, there's some great shopping to be done, too — at Freehold Raceway Mall, Jersey Shore Premium Outlets, Jackson Premium Outlets, and Monmouth Mall, to name a few. New York City is a two-hour train ride away for a fun day trip exploring the sights. Six Flags Great Adventure and Jackson Premium Outlets are 30 minutes away by car.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Everyone tells us how much they enjoy relaxing outside on the private deck. Guests also frequently compliment us on our flower gardens and on how clean, nicely decorated, and welcoming our home is. (Check out our five-star reviews!) You won't find any cast-off furnishings or second-hand housewares in our vacation home. Our property is meticulously maintained and thoughtfully appointed with your total comfort and convenience in mind. We are close enough to walk or ride a bike to the beach, yet far away enough from the noise and hustle-bustle of Ocean Avenue.
