Stone Harbor house description

Lovely waterfront home has uninterrupted views of marshlands. Swimmers will enjoy jumping off the dock into the swift current of the creek. Children can spend countless hours crabbing from the dock directly behind the house. Birders will enjoy frequent sightings of blue heron and white egrets. Or, launch your kayak directly off the dock and explore miles of waterways.

The property has two large docks with a swim ladder; the covered patio offers complete shade and respite from the sun; a rooftop deck offers spectacular views. The house is crisply decorated and has central air conditioning. After a long day at the beach, rinse-off in the enclosed, hot-water, outdoor shower to refresh before dinner. Enjoy a family BBQ (gas grill provided) and outdoor dining in the lovely backyard with incredible views. Large screen TV, cable, DVD/blu-ray player, high-speed Internet. Two kayaks (1 single, 1 double) will be available for use, as long as renters continue to treat them well and not lose the paddles :) Four beach passes included.

What to bring? Everything fun to take advantage of the waterfront location, e.g. kayaks, fishing rods, crab traps, water floats, umbrellas, beach chairs. For land-lovers, bring your bikes! Bike up and down 7-Mile island.

Stone Harbor's famous beaches are a 15 minute walk or 5 minute drive from the house. Quaint shops and lovely restaurants are a 10 minute walk into town. Walk across the street to the Wetlands Institute where children can enjoy many wildlife programs and touch animals in the live feeding tanks; adults can view the nearby nesting osprey, take back bay boat rides and enjoy lectures about the wetlands. Cape May, an historic Victorian town, is a 20 minute drive south on the Garden State Parkway. Visit the Zoo, a 10 minute drive north on the Garden State Parkway. Take the kids to enjoy a day of amusement rides and water parks at the Wildwood boardwalk, 20 minutes south (rides appropriate for children ages 3+).

First Guest Bedroom: 2 twin beds

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2003

                          About the owner: Our family enjoying a boat ride on the inland waterway at sunset, 1/8 mile from the property.

                          Why the Owner Chose Stone Harbor:
                          My husband and I have been vacationing in Stone Harbor for over 20 years. Stone Harbor is a fantastic destination that offers something for everyone in the family. We enjoy motor-boating, sailing, windsurfing, kayaking and waverunning - all of which we can do right from the dock on our property. My daughter absolutely loves the beach. And, I enjoy window shopping in downtown Stone Harbor.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Our property is on a quiet cul-de-sac road overlooking an expansive marshland in Stone Harbor Manor. I can 'almost' guarantee that we have the BEST view of any bayfront property in Stone Harbor. Most other Stone Harbor bayfront homes have views of other properties across the bay. I personally prefer to sip my pina coladas watching the sailboats in the distance and blue herons walking along the waterline. Our home has so much to offer including swimming, fishing, kayaking, and bird watching. We are located across from one of the largest Laughing Gull rookeries in the country, and we have Diamondback Turtles nesting directly in our yard! Town is a 10 minute walk and the beach is a 15 minute walk from the house.
