What makes this house unique

Everyone tells us how much they enjoy relaxing outside on the deck and watching the squirrels, birds and butterflies in our back yard. We also are complimented often on the beautiful flower gardens, the antiques, and on how clean, nicely decorated, and welcoming our home is. Guests like our location because it's an easy walk to the beach and the downtown area, yet the perfect distance from the crowds on Ocean Avenue and beach block.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your cottage and would do it again in a minute. Thanks for hosting us. We hope you have a great rest of summer, and beyond . . . . Thanks once again for everything. We had a fine time at "the shore."

Perfect rental if you have a baby!

  • 5 of 5

I rented Christine's adorable house for my parents to babysit my one-year-old for a week. Christine had everything you could possibly need for a little one (high chair, crib, pack and play for the beach, changing pad, bath tub, umbrella stroller, the list goes on and on). The house is a great setup, one block from a playground and near the beach playground as well. Christine was there for anything my parents needed. Highly recommend, especially if you have a little one with you.

Everything you could want in a rental home

  • 5 of 5

Everything you would ever need during your stay is found in this rental. The owners put a lot of thought into amenities for this rental. Everything was very clean and comfortable. There is a beautiful deck outside to enjoy during your stay, very quiet area. Owners were very thoughtful in making our stay enjoyable. They even covered our bikes one day when it rained. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone wanting to stay in Belmar.

Really Enjoyed Blue Hydrangea

  • 5 of 5

Blue Hydrangea was like a home away from home. It was very clean (esp. the bathroom) and great amenities down to the Keurig coffeemaker, corkscrew, wine glasses, grill, and boogie boards. The decor was tastefully done. Our family had a short but very relaxing time both at the beach and hanging out at the cottage. Hope to be back next year!

Highly recommend this beach house!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have rented the Blue Hydrangea for 4 summers now. The location is perfect, and the house is so welcoming and comfortable, a totally quiet and relaxing beach getaway just as described. It really has become our home away from home, and we're already counting the days until our vacation next summer! Belmar is a great beach town, too. Highly recommend!

Wonderful beach house

  • 5 of 5

My family (including two little boys) enjoyed a fun week at the Blue Hydrangea. The home was very nicely furnished and extremely well kept. It looked in person just like the photos. The kitchen had every utensil you could think of - even though we ended up eating out. There was plenty of room for our family of four including comfortable living room and nice deck. It was a first time to Belmar and there was a lot to explore nearby. The beach was a short walk, very clean, and beautiful views. We found good restaurants and ice cream within walking distance. It was also a central location for visiting other towns and there were many activities for entertaining kids - playgrounds around corner and at boardwalk, Castaway mini golf, Jenkinsons boardwalk, Asbury splash park and swan pedal boats, etc. We are also excited to find a range of restaurants within 20 mins including breakfast comfort food (Meemoms, Belmar), Korean tacos (MOGO, Asbury Park), Jersey Shore BBQ (Belmar), German food (Asbury Festhalle), seafood (Shrimp Box, Point Pleasant). We have previously stayed at several beach houses in LBI and this was by far the homiest place. I highly recommend this beach rental!
