Fun on the Bay
Fun on the Bay
Our family of 5 stayed here for a week. The bay is absolutely beautiful! We brought our 22' boat, 2 kayaks, a small sailboat and crab traps. Our children, ages 20, 18 and 12 had friends visit and everyone had a wonderful time fishing and boating. I swam the length of the bay several times and the water was clean and clear. The house is large and lends itself to group activities (game night) or quiet reading spots. Great outdoor shower and fenced in area to store bicycles, surf boards and beach chairs.

We had so much fun!! The house was bright and airy -- the water was really nice. My husband and I swam the length of the harbor each morning. The kids enjoyed our kayaks in the harbor and also swimming off the dock every day. The deck off the living room was a perfect place for meals -- and some evenings you could hear the ocean. Views to die for . . .!

About the owner: We think Avalon epitomizes the perfect place for a family vacation. Our grown children still see this beautiful seashore resort as their vacation spot and come back with their families to enjoy all that Avalon and waterfront living can offer.
Why the Owner Chose Avalon:
During the summer Avalon has scores of activities for all age groups. The little ones enjoy Avalon's spectacular protected beaches, craft events and puppet shows in town -- older ones enjoy all kinds of sports and nature 'camps', teens love the surfing and sports camps. Overlaying it all are the most perfect beaches in the world (our opinion!) Autumn and spring rentals provide a bright yet cozy getaway for families. Calm beautiful beach walks, excellent biking opportunities, cozy fireplaces for evenings of family games. We think there is nothing quite like Avalon beaches and dunes, during the quiet seasons! Our house is roomy and can easily handle two families of four or any combination of 8 - 10 family units. Many of our tenants come back year after year because the house is very comfortable and the price is right for two families. In the summer, bring your boat -- bring all you water toys -- come to relax and enjoy the best that the Jersey shore can give!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Avalon's beaches are among the best in the world. Three generations of our family have grown up with a lifelong fondness for the beach and ocean. Swimming off the dock, dining on the outside deck, biking to spectacular beaches. A summer family vacation doesn't get better than this!! Off season provides quiet walks on the beach, communing with nature -- or even great touch football with your kids on the vacant but exansive beaches. The quiet roads in Avalon and Stone Harbor provide great nice family biking opportunities. Call or email for more photos.
