We bought the house in 2002. We use it to get away from our very fast-paced and hectic life at home.
The Owner purchased this house in 2002
We think of it as a sanctuary where we can escape our very busy lives, slow down the pace and relax and have fun with our children. We enjoy being in Belmar - it's a year-round town and a great community. The kids love running around in the yard, playing games, digging in the sand, jumping in the waves. Their smiles and laughs make it all worth while. Belmar is a convenient drive for us - not too long so we're able to spend the day or the weekend when we are able. The community is re-inventing itself and homes and businesses are being upgraded all over town.
My favorite part is very simple - the sound of the waves and the smell of the salt air. It brings instant calmness to my soul. There's just nothing like it.

Our family stayed here in August, 2012 and would stay again in a second. The house is very roomy - we have three teen-aged sons and our parents stayed with us during differnt parts of the week (in addition to a day guest or two) and there was always more than enough room. The front porch is great place to relax in the morning with a cup of cofee or a book and the deck with retractiable awning was perfect for late afternoon/early evening. The outdoor shower was very convenient comnig home from the beach and we even enjoyed watching the Perseid meteor shower from the hot tub on one of the evenings! The home is situated in a quiet, family neighborhood and is equidistant from town and the beach and a short walk to the Shark River.
After a stressful year, we were looking forward to an opportunity to relax for a week and this house fit the bill perfectly. When you enter the house, you're greeted by a sign reading "Welcome to our home away from home". For this one, perfect week in August, that was exactly what it was for us.
The house was impeccable. So clean and updated. Well stocked. It was 4 blocks from the beach but a nice walk and also close to town if you wanted to walk to the shops or drug store. We would love to go back. 10th Avenue is a good two way through fare, since some of the streets are one-way. Traffic was light however.
Just a great place to take a break from the city and enjoy the sun and ocean. The location is great, equidistant from Main St and the beach. The neighbor is a quiet, residential area offering plenty peace and quiet.
The house itself is in great shape and has everything you need to enjoy your stay. There is a full kitchen with all plenty if appliances and a nice dining room. The master bath has a nice rain shower. The hot tub is a fantastic feature for relaxing at the end of the day.
My family and I have stayed in this location for two summers now -- this year will be our third -- and we couldn't be happier. The house is located half way between the main strip in town and the beach. That means it's just as easy to get into town as it is to the beach.
The beach is nice and wide, with fresh-water showers and lunch cafes, if you don't feel like dragging a cooler. The house has central air, several ceiling fans, and a retractable awning on the deck (I hate the commercial but love the option of sitting in the sun or shade!) so you can stay cool after a day at the beach of a run on the boardwalk.
There is a sizable deck with a paver patio down below (with gas grill) and a large hot tub (my kids think it's a pool) and outside shower next to the deck. The back yard (beyond the deck) is very spacious -- good for wiffle ball or frisbee with the kids. My only complaint was the that the grass in back could have used some attention -- it has obviously seen some wear from lots of people running around. (Then again, we're not there to spend time in the yard.)
The downstairs is fairly open, with a kitchen counter and high stools separating the kitchen from the dining area -- a nice hangout space. The living room has a sectional and a decent size flat screen on the wall. The stereo is just okay, though I typically bring my own Bose.
The upstairs has a separate central air control, which is nice. And the master bath with the rain shower is great for showering lots of little ones at once! The hot water was great too -- they had completed installing an "on demand" unit the first time we stayed there, so the hot water never runs out!
The owners have been great (the importance of which can't be overstated). The DVD player died while we were there (not good, since our girls were babies!) and they came to the house and replaced the unit the next morning.
There is FIOS high-speed wi-fi (and free domestic phone) for keeping in touch with the outside world while you're there...but why bother!
My family stayed here for a week last August and had a great time! The house is pristine, very well-maintained and had plenty of space indoors and out for all of us (7-8 adults and 2 small children, plus a few day visitors). Loved the front porch and back deck for relaxing and we had many memorable meals outside under the stars. Owners are very responsive and helpful. A very short stroll to the beach with its beautiful boardwalk and plenty of sun and R&R time for everyone. The hot tub was a big hit also. Highly recommend this lovely home.
What an awesome home. We love the downstairs
bedroom. The kitchen was great and just so
roomy!!! The hot tub was wonderful to relax in
after the long day at the beach!!! Lots of space in
the house and there was room for three cars in the
driveway. Outdoor shower was a bonus. The
second floor has a rain shower that the kids really
enjoyed. Wonderful experience. Can not wait to go
