  • Children Welcome:

    We are very often asked if our home is suitable for families with young children. The answer is YES!!! We have rented to hundreds of families in the past ten years, and all have found the house to be extremely family friendly. All of the china and crystal shown in arms' reach and all of the more expensive decorations are either in china cabinets, display cases, on the top shelf of the bar fireplace mantle (out of reach for youngsters), or put away for summer rentals. All valuable decorations are out of arms' reach. The coffee tables and side tables are cleared of all breakables, so there are no worries! Our living room furniture in the main house is newly recovered and absolutely beautiful, but it has slipcovers for summer & family rentals. For weddings and other celebrations, we will gladly redecorate with crystal and Lenox for your guests to enjoy. We 'redecorate' every fall for off-season rentals! For Christmas rentals, the house is fully decorated & absolutely breathtaking....moreless

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: My partner Polly and I both love collecting antiques, renovating houses, traveling, and reading. I have four children ages 18 to 26. While my primary job is managing The Victoria Inn, I have lots of other “part-time” jobs. Polly and I are both adjunct professors in the Continuing Studies Department at Villanova University, teaching in the Paralegal Certificate Program. I teach real estate and estate planning and Polly teaches Information Systems. I have my law degree from Widener and my LLM from Villanova. Polly has a bachelor’s degree in paralegal studies, her Master’s in Information Systems from Drexel University, and is currently pursuing a Six Sigma Certification. Polly works for ADT Security as a Senior Analyst, Environment, Health, Safety and Wellness. I am an attorney with a small practice limited to estates and real estate. Fortunately, Polly is quite handy and enjoys making improvements to the Inn. I’m constantly redecorating, so returning guests always find something new! We are both avid antique collectors and have a small shop in Seaville, NJ. Most weekends, time permitting, we are at estate sales, garage sales, or antique stores. It’s one of our favorite ways to spend an afternoon. We’ve had so much fun renovating, furnishing and decorating our house. If you are looking for a true home away from home, this is your vacation home!

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
WE ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! We love old homes and the family-friendly atmosphere of Ocean City - a fun, safe place to vacation. Ocean City was named the greatest family vacation resort by the Travel Channel! It's comforting to allow the children to explore the town without worrying about bars on every corner as found in so many other south jersey beach towns. We are located one block to the newly expanded beach (April 2013) and 2.5 mile boardwalk. Every block of our fabulous beach is guarded, & the 7th Street beach is a guarded beach only for surfing. With so much to do, you can walk anywhere and avoid paying for parking! The boardwalk has two great amusement piers, a water park, several mini-golf courses, music pier, arcades, surf shops, a movie theater, dozens of stores, and every kind of 'fun food' imaginable: ice cream, pizza, salt water taffy, caramel corn, water ice, candy, fudge, French fries, seafood, smoothies, cotton candy, and more. We are just a couple of blocks to the 100+ shops and many restaurants on Asbury Avenue, a great shopping venue for a girls' weekend or a break from the hot sun! Less than one block from our home you will find 12 tennis courts, a track, football field, shuffleboard courts, basketball court, & beach volleyball. You can even rent bicycles for a morning ride on the boardwalk. Just a few blocks away is the bay where you can rent jet skis, go deep sea fishing, crabbing, enjoy a whale & dolphin watching cruise, go parasailing, or enjoy a delicious meal at one of the many outdoor cafes overlooking the water. We truly enjoy hosting special events, and this property allows us to host weddings, anniversaries, birthdays and other terrific celebrations. The Inn is conveniently located 20 minutes to Atlantic City’s casinos & terrific shopping outlets; 30 minutes to historic Cape May with its famous zoo, many antique stores, dozens of shops, Victorian homes & fantastic restaurants; an hour to Philadelphia, & 2.5 hours to New York City.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Victoria Inn is a truly unique setting for summer vacations, intimate weddings, fabulous birthday parties, memorable anniversaries, festive holiday celebrations, & fun-filled family reunions. Newly married, Polly and I especially enjoy hosting weddings, & we will gladly assist you in planning the perfect event. The gorgeous foyer with hand-carved staircase, Victorian organ, and beautiful decor is the perfect spot to photograph the bride. Wedding couples also particularly enjoy taking pictures by the antique fireplace in the bar and the stunning formal living room with newly reupholstered furniture. Our lovely, fully enclosed courtyard, reminiscent of a French Cafe, has seating for 40 at fabulous wrought iron tables & chairs with many potted, hanging & climbing flowers, & hundreds of tiny white lights. With accommodations for up to 40, the Victoria Inn provides a reasonably priced retreat venue, ideal for corporate, youth & spiritual retreats. In addition to celebrations, guests have gathered for Creative Memories Scrap-booking, Mah-Jong weekends, yoga and spiritual retreats, & many youth groups. Meeting space for large groups is available at several locations within a few blocks from the Inn. From mid-June through Labor Day, rentals are on a weekly basis. From September through mid-June, a 2 to 3 night minimum stay is generally required. Ocean City also hosts many special events including the M.S. Bike-a-thon, ALS walk, antique car show, Spring & Fall Block Parties, craft shows, art shows, Easter Egg Hunt with 100,000 eggs, Decorated Hat Parade, Halloween Festivities, Trick-or-Treating, Hayrides on the boardwalk, Music Festivals, Breakfast with Santa & Free Horse & Carriage Rides! Just steps from our house are all of the fabulous First Night (New Year's) Activities with fireworks, rides, musicians, shows & magicians, and the Polar Bear Plunge on New Year's Day. Conveniently located to Philadelphia & NY International Airports & local transit.
