  • A fantastic home

    "My group of about 15 friends and spouses rented this amazing house for our 18th annual Euchre card tournament this September. Everybody raved about the house, the location, and the town. Also, the manager, Nancy, was a tremendous help both before and throughout or stay. First, the location is spectacular. Ocean Grove is a wonderful town with lots of charm, and the house sits right on the beach, directly across from the boardwalk, fronting an entire block. Probably the best location in town. It really is as good as it looks. I grew up in NJ and have been coming to various shore towns from Wildwood to Long Branch since I was a kid. Ocean Grove is special. And it's only an hour from Newark airport, which was great for our out of state people. Close for travelers, but it feels like another world from NYC, in the best possible way. Second, the house, while a bit quirky in the bed and bathroom department, is incredible. Best of all is the gigantic front porch. We spent as much time as possible here, in daylight hours and at night. The view is unbeatable and the atmosphere is wonderful. There is a grill and you can grill on one end of the deck without smoke bothering people on the other end. There are three large tables and chairs and we routinely sat a dozen people there with room to spare. The house is also HUGE and charming. A real antique, built in 1880 if I recall correctly. We slept 15 people without trouble, and during the days we didn't feel like we were on top of each other either. And staying in a place with so much evident personality was a real bonus. One caveat: The Master Bedroom has a railroad bedroom off of it (not counted in the 5 listed rooms--that would make it six) and these rooms share a private bath, which itself is divided into one bath with just a toilet and one with just a shower and sink. Slightly odd but not a big issue for us. In a house with six beds (not including 2 sofabeds and 2 air mattresses) and four bathrooms, the quirks weren't a problem, and were more part of the charm of this vintage house. Lastly, Nancy the manager was wonderful to deal with, answering our text-messaged questions and helping out with anything we needed. We had a package delivered to the house after we'd left and Nancy repacked and mailed it to us back home. Above and beyond the call of duty. Overall, the Strandview was a highlight of our 18 years of getting together. We definitely want to return."

  • Great house

    "We were a group of two families, both with small children, and had a great time at the house. There was more than enough beds to accommodate our group and the house is a very short walk to the beach, restaurants and ice cream shops. There is an outdoor shower to clean up before entering the home after a day at the beach. The home was stocked with all the items we needed for a great vacation. Overall a great rental."

  • Another Great Year

    "This was our second year staying at this property. What more can a reviewer say than that. We loved it the first year we stayed, and that was enough to return for another year. We're already planning to return again in 2015. The owner is exceptionally nice and, when there was a problem with the outside shower, he hopped in his car and drove from his home to the property and made sure it was fixed within 24 hours of our call! The "issue" was that the outside-shower door came apart due to age. This really wasn't an issue because there is a shower curtain inside the shower area, so it was still usable. We didn't ask/demand that it be fixed, but the owner is so conscientious, he personally came to fix it (he wanted our experience to be unmarred). Like I said, what more can you ask for?"

  • Just love this place!

    "Spring break and three days watching the waves is enough to rejuvenate anyone! John has always been a wonderful landlord and has rented to me many times, mostly extended weekends. I am an off-season beach fan and his upper unit is bliss. Very comfortable for me and my husband or for a girlfriend's weekend. So grateful to have found him and his rental. Thanks for everything!"
