Great Beach Vacation in an adorable Bay Head cottage
"This is a very clean, quaint, adorable beach cottage that is within walking distance to the beach. The friendly owners clearly love their home and this is not a typical rental, you really feel that they are sharing their beach home with you. Really nice neighbors. We had the best time. We relaxed and enjoyed this lovely home and beautiful shore--definitely will go back!!"

"Our family group of 13 (ages 1 to 75) had a great time in this comfortable, clean, and compact house. The location truly cannot be beat. We went for almost an entire week without using cars, and the 4 and 5 year olds in our group could easily walk to and from the beach (and to ice cream, coffee shops, and a small grocery/convenience store). Ocean Grove is a charming town and the beaches are clean and well guarded. While the house is "compact" the three levels plus two large porches meant that we never felt like we were on top of each other or cramped.
The house contained almost everything we needed (except a high chair and portacrib that we brought for the smallest) and this made our stay quite easy and relaxing. It stayed cool on a humid/muggy day and night (with A/C and fans); the kitchen was very well appointed with the gear we needed to cook communal meals from scratch; two large tables - one in the kitchen, the second in the front room - provided ample room for us all to sit together to eat as well. The amenities (bathrooms, kitchen appliances, w/d) were all in good working order and on the "new" side. Most impressively, all of the advertised beach gear - beach towels, umbrellas, chairs, toys, tags - was there and in excellent condition. The good weather meant that we did not nee to delve deeply into the enormous DVD collection but we could have happily passed rainy/bad weather days in the basement media room.
Two of the bedrooms are capacious, the other three are smaller (though not cramped). The basement bedroom with a twin bed provided a useful retreat for the teenager; the bedroom with four bunks and a double bed good for the smaller kids and parents. I think the only thing we thought was missing were some reading lights! But in an age of the Kindle, this was a truly minor thing.
ON that note, the house does not (this year, 2014) have WiFi, which some in our party (the teenager in particular) initially found frustrating. But by the end of the week, the enforced "respite" from the screens and the many pleasures of being together that this nice house offered to us had turned into a very good thing! We had a great time."

"This place was a beautiful place for a wedding receptions. 3 tables that you could sit at. Like sixteen chairs to sit at the tables. It was so great to be on the bay. We had a great time with our family and friends. I would recommend this place for anyone with children of all ages. The outside was great the children was crabbing. Everything was great, enjoyed all the bathrooms in the house. Parking was great, lots of room for guess to come see us. Will be booking this for next summer for my daughter's birthday. So happy we picked this house. It was worth the money for the size of the house. Nice deck out back nice to put up a blow up pool for the small children. Grill cooking was great. Nice please to hang outback. Fire pit to have a fire outside and it was so pretty outside. I just can not say enough about how great this place was. Love it and can't wait to return next summer."
