Property description

Just unpack, unwind, and get away from it all at the Blue Hydrangea Beach Cottage in Belmar, New Jersey. With nearly 40 five-star guest reviews, the Blue Hydrangea Beach Cottage stands out as the highest-rated 2BR VRBO rental in Belmar.

Belmar is a small-town coastal community that consistently ranks among New Jersey's Top Ten Beaches. Our rental property is ideally located 4 blocks from the beach in a quiet family neighborhood. Guests appreciate our location because it is just a short walk to the beach — yet far enough from the hustle-bustle of busy Ocean Ave. and the beach block.

QUIET & PRIVATE SETTING

Our circa 1920s beach house has been updated with modern amenities while retaining its vintage charm. The house is thoughtfully appointed with homelike touches to provide you with an extraordinary Jersey Shore vacation experience. (Please visit our Reviews page to see why guests love renting our house.)

The rental is the entire 2nd floor of our 2-family home (1st floor is owner occupied). You have your own separate, private entrance via the spacious upstairs deck at the rear of the property. Sit back and enjoy the ocean breezes and your view of our beautiful flower gardens while you relax on the deck with a cup of coffee or glass of wine.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Hello, my name is Christine; I grew up in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, 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 and staying at our house.

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 boardwalk and clean, lifeguard-protected beaches with restroom facilities and shower pads at each beach entrance to rinse off before you leave the beach. Our beaches are 100% smoke free 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 contest in September In addition, the area has 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 — Freehold Raceway Mall, Jersey Shore Premium Outlets, Jackson Premium Outlets, and Monmouth Mall, to name a few. New York City is a 2-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!) Our beach house 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.
