Bay Head house description
A lot of character. Family house, extremely comfortable and well maintained. Authentic Victorian house near beach (200 yards away) on East Ave with wrap around porches in sun & shade, even upstairs. Built in 1890. Original early 19th century details e.g. fixtures, dumbwaiter (no longer in use) & design details. 2 bedrooms with porch where one can hear the ocean at night with the doors open, master bedroom has private bathroom, plenty of closets, plus 4th guest room. Extra room in basement with wifi. Living room with fireplace opens to dining room that has a wet bar. House is adjacent to empty lot with lawn and trees allowing greater unique privacy. Back yard with garden and bushes also provides privacy. Separate Garage with basics. Cable TV. Bikes available and fishing rods. Easy walk to town - bakery, shops etc. There is also a separate garage. Please let us know if you would like to visit to view house. This can be easily arranged. Most bedroom, halls and bathrooms have been freshly painted. The porch is being repainted and with new facade. Close to the beach: The house comes with 4 beach badges for access to beaches directly across the street a half block walk away to one more secluded beach or another with life guard during summer season. Beautiful white beaches are daily maintained for summer residents and visitors. Walk the beach and collect beach glass, surf, fish or just enjoy the summer breeze and clear ocean water. Sea gulls, sand pipers and other bird life. Enjoy an occasional swim with a porpoise. You can indulge in water skiing, windsurfing, fishing, tennis, kayaking and boating . Although an authentic Victorian the house has been outfitted with modern amenities - microwave, dishwasher, etc. This child/friendly vacation home in Bay Head comes with air-conditioning, a Cable TV with DVD, VCR. Internet with Wifi. Several beautiful decks. The basement has large washer and dryer to limit mundane tasks. Extra downstairs room has basement windows and allows for quiet area or play space or beds for extra guests.
Beach town: The country-style village of Bay Head has several small shops for gifts, cheese, home-made candy and several clothing boutiques. There are a few restaurants in town or in the nearby adjacent town of Point Pleasant . There is a bay where children go crabbing and twilight lake where the ducks live offers a beautiful sunset -- practically guaranteed. An easy walk to town or the lake. Even the train station is in walking distance, maybe a 10-15 minute walk.
Activities: Nearby trips to the Pine Barrens, Point Pleasant amusement park and boardwalk and another one in seaside heights. For larger entertainment for children and family there is a great adventure in driving distance. While the village has maintained its old character and limited big box shops there are several in driving distance - home depot, bed, bath and Beyond, Loews etc. Popular activities are biking, skateboarding or rollerblading, walking along East Avenue - where the public dominants the streets more than the cars. This makes East Avenue a safe street for families. The house has three bikes and several fishing rods. Some beach chairs. In town there is a playground.
Golf: Golf course lies within easy reach and excellent shopping and dining opportunities are available in a short distance
Keywords: Classic, extremely comfortable family Beach house, close to beach - 3 minute walk

A wonderful month in Bay Head
A wonderful month in Bay Head
A wonderful B&B ( Bed & Beach ) vacation. Just two houses from Bridge Street beach with ocean views from both of the porches. One only has to bring clothes and food as linens, towels and even beach towels along with some beach chairs are supplied. While our weather was wonderful, there is a good supply of games, DVD's, and books for those inclement days. We enjoyed three generations from 7 years old to 83; room and fun for all. Two big attractions, just a two block walk to the best bakery ever - Mullers on Bridge Street, then for breakfast, lunch, dinner or just an ice cream treat try Dorcas' also located on Bridge Street. The owners description of this property was very accurate and they are most pleasant. House was spotless upon our arrival. No question went unanswered. Highly recommend this home for your next getaway.

A really beautiful home in a perfect location, less than a block from the beach. The house is well-stocked with everything you need and very clean and comfortable. The front porch and the back porch are both really special. The house is just great, the perfect place for a relaxing beach getaway. I'm looking forward to returning soon!
