Property description

This home was once a single family home and was converted to a two family, in 2009. The larger portion of the home, almost 2,000 sq. ft. is available for rent. There is now a small apartment attached to the rear of the house where I live. When you look at the picture... the entire front of the house is part of the rental property. Only a small part of the building in the back half of the second floor is where the apartment is located. Although the guest portion of the house is listed as a two bedroom, the loft area has a trundle bed and the family room, which has a door for privacy and it's own very large custom bathroom, has a queen sized pullout couch (brand new) and a trundle bed. There are three full bathrooms, two on the first floor and a large master bath with a soaking tub, that has jets. Also, there is a separate shower and double sinks in the master.

It has been completely remodeled with all hardwood floors, except for the family room which is carpeted. New tiled bathrooms, a modern kitchen with granite counter-tops, a large island, all stainless steel appliances, Cuisinart 12 cup coffee pot and new this year a KEURIG 2.0 coffeemaker with urn, toaster oven, double oven, side by side refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave/convection oven. The house is beautifully furnished and painted with a beach motif in greens, blues, whites and tans.

Enjoy a relaxing glass of wine on the large front deck and watch the sunset each night over the bay. Each one is magnificent. People gather along the edge of the bay each night to watch the sun go down. Table for 8 on the deck.
Bring kayaks. I have lifejackets for your use. There are several that can be borrowed that are adjustable. Just ask! Use at own risk. Drop them right into the bay in front of the house and head south to Island Beach State Park.

Walk 5 blocks north or 2 blocks south to a fishing/crabbing pier and catch tonite's dinner! Crab pots for your use! Local tackle shops, in walking distance, will have bait and supplies for you!

  • Minimum Age Limit For Renters:

    I get many requests to rent my house to prom groups. I'd love to be able to accomodate, but it's just too risky. As a high school counselor, I would be in a 'pickle' if something went wrong. I know there are lots of great kids out there who would do the right thing. But, in the case that a group did damage to the house, since proms are at the beginning of the rental season, I worry that it would be an issue for the weeks following, if repairs were needed....moreless

Other Amenities

  • OK... so what is meant by alternative lifestyle? I was going to check that because I thought perhaps it means gay/lesbian couples and their families. If that's the case, then, of course. I guess I don't think of that as an alternative lifestyle..... My house is family friendly, period, how your family is structured is of no consequence to me. Does that make sense? I believe most in my community share my values and beliefs. This home is a bayfront home. The only thing between the home and the water is a street. No obstructions to the view. ALSO.... check out the following site.... they have anything you can think of to rent. Ask me first, because I may already provide it for you, but it's a great back up for those who don't want to bring as much stuff....moreless

You have to walk out to your boat and walk it to shore to load it. Had a 21 foot Whaler out there if that gives you an idea. There is a state marina nearby if you need a boat slip for a larger boat. Island Beach State Park is part of that marina....moreless

This recently renovated and completely updated home is located on a three block wide barrier island. It is a comfortable walk to the ocean and sits on a street that winds along the Barnegat Bay. No obstruction of the view of this beautiful waterway. Bring a boat, jet skis, kayaks or canoes. Beaches are gorgeous and wide. 4 beach badges offered with rental. Under 12 are free. Additional badges for day, week, or season are available at entrances to the beach. Only 1.5 miles from the amusement park, with rides, arcades, restaurants, shopping and more.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: I ask that no Prom groups inquire about my property and that any groups in their 20's be willing to have someone over the age of 25 sign the contract. I wish I could still offer the house to young people, but I had a very bad experience with a group of young folks and I just can't take the chance again. Thank you. Storm damage from 'Sandy' was minimal. Completely repaired and excited to offer this comfortable, clean, and beautiful bayfront home to guests. Beaches are still beautiful, decks are ready for a family gathering. Come enjoy the peace and quiet! My late husband and I moved into the property in 1980. It was a tiny little bungalow which we tore down in 1987 to put up a 3 bedroom contemporary home to make room for our two growing boys. When my husband passed away in 2007, I decided to make some changes to the property. I made the decision to go with a two family and to become a summer rental property. The house turned out beautiful! I am so proud of the work done by a local builder who specializes in custom cabinetry and molding. The wainscoting in the living room really makes a statement. I love sharing this comfortable home with families who want a relaxing shore experience in a dream location.

Why the Owner Chose Seaside Park:
My late husband grew up in Seaside Park and when we got married we rented the house that we eventually bought. We just really loved the area and he couldn't imagine living anywhere else. I am originally from Maine and grew up in the mountains and woods. Living at the beach opened up a whole new world to me. I've never grown tired of the beautiful sunsets on the bay and the amazing sunrises up at the ocean.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I can ride my bike to the post office, the market, the beaches and never leave the island on the weekends when it's the most crowded. there's a traveling farmer's market almost every weekend that offers lots of Jersey Fresh Produce. I like to kayak early in the morning and just roll the kayak across the street and drop it into the bay. My favorite spot is south of here off the coast of Island Beach State Park. It's a nice paddle ride and a lovely place to watch the birds. The beach is just two blocks away and sometimes after spending the day at the beach, I like to take a dip in the pool. I have a small 18' X 24' pool that is great for a quick dip after being in the ocean or after dinner when it's still warm. Invite people for a BBQ on the front deck. Take a nice bike ride along the bay. Not much traffic, wide shoulder for kids... bring the helmets! Lots of restaurants all along this island and if you're into nite clubs... of course we have those too!
