The Bear decided to go a little off the beaten path and leave his humble abode in the Rocky Mountains to venture to Ocean Grove, NJ and see the ocean. So what if Mother Nature threw Hurricane Irene at the NJ shore a week before his trip? The Bear was undaunted and is happy to report: Irene may have caused problems, but the New Jersey shore is essentially untouched and open for business!
The Chelsea makes an excellent rental for families with small kids and pets. The house is huge, boasting 9 bedrooms, a big front porch, a giant dining table sufficiently large to feed the entire crew, and a kitchen big enough to cook for that kind of crowd. After dinner, I was able to retire to the huge master bedroom with French doors opening onto a large balcony, letting in the sea breeze and the sound of waves crashing on the beach. What a way to relax!
Did I mention that the beach is only a block away? Walk to the end of the block and you’re right on the boardwalk, with the sandy beach and the Atlantic Ocean laid out before you. Bring your blankets and umbrella, if your cubs are like the ones in my group, it’ll be hours before you can tear them away. They’ll be splashing in the waves, digging sandcastles, and collecting seashells for hours. Or bring your surfboard. I enjoyed watching the surfers take on the waves.
Ocean Grove itself is a lovely little town. There are a huge number of shops and restaurants just a few blocks from the Chelsea and no end of things to do within walking distance – you can go to local parks and playgrounds, shop on Main Street, visit the historic Great Auditorium and the surrounding vacation tents, enjoy a ride on the paddle boats at Wesley Lake, or venture up to Asbury Park for all the attractions on the boardwalk, even try to spot The Boss at The Stone Pony. I did have one rainy day, but not to worry – The Chelsea’s owners provided loads of games and amusements right in the house. The cubs especially loved the craft closet and having tea parties in the Duck Room. When we finally felt the need to get out of the house, Jenkinson’s Aquarium in nearby Point Pleasant provided a great rainy day excursion.
I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Ocean Grove and the Chelsea. You will too! It’s never too early to plan your next vacation, so go book now!

About the owner: We are dog AND child friendly. Our own chidren, and we hope someday, our grandchldren, too, will enjoy this house. We started here with a baby, and renovated this old B&B to meet the needs of our growing family. A move to be closer to work, brought us to vrbo to find a way to keep the house affordable to pass onto the kids.
As company dogs, we totally understand the need to grab the kids, pack the car and get some down-time away from the office. This house has 9 bedrooms to offer you AND your kids to enjoy time together. Check into the Tuesday morning fishing class at 7 am. Sometimes, we have movies on the beach during the Summer nights. But the main location for getting back to normal is around the dinner table or on the front porch. When we spend time here, we BBQ and eat out on the porch each night, and enjoy the beautiful views....there's nothing like it.
We always try to rent from other vrbo owners so we can see and add the extras we think you will enjoy.
Why the Owner Chose Ocean Grove: We stopped into Ocean Grove for dinner one evening over a decade ago. We fell in love with the town and the rest is history. The charming village atmosphere keeps Ocean Grove a quiet place for families to enjoy without the noisy beat of the young drinking crowds of other beach towns. Life is simple here, good food, friends and sunsets after days spent enjoying the beach, and strolling the boardwalk. Barbecue or walk to the MANY nearby restaurants. Friday and Saturday Night Performances offer music for all genres at the Pavilion and The Great Auditorium. Or stroll to Bradley Beach for the Wednesday night dancing. Take a folding chair to the beach for the Friday night movies at the fishing pier or listen to the performances from the lawn at the The Great Auditorium. During Summer, make sure to stroll through the Tents that make Ocean Grove unique. And If you can, catch the Summer House tour which provides access to 8 or 10 houses or tents on a walking tour. If nothing else, bask in the sun, swim in the ocean. Take a picnic basket or run home, we are only a few houses away from the beach.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The Chelsea is steps from the beach, and 2 blocks to Main Street shops, Ice cream parlors and Restaurants and Live Performances at The Great Auditorium. The Board Walk offers a beautiful ocean front walk South to Spring Lake and North through Asbury Park's Renovated Ocean Front up to LongBranch. Stop into the Stone Pony to see who’s there. Main Street offers something for everyone: plants, books, antiques, gifts, cheese, jewelry, bakeries, candy and coffee shops to enjoy.
