If you are looking for adventure, there are unlimited activities to keep you busy. For the water lovers, you can enjoy boating, sailing, wave running, kayaking, paddle boarding, water skiing, wake boarding, fishing, surfing and swimming in our ocean and back bays. If staying on land suits you better, take up a game of beach volleyball, play tennis at one of our newly renovated courts, or visit one of our nine parks and playgrounds.

For those who prefer a slower pace, enjoy a walk on our seven miles of safe and beautiful beaches, sit back and enjoy a boat tour, take a leisurely bike ride through town or visit one of our public docks and watch the sunset. Shopping also is a favorite pastime. While Stone Harbor has always been known for its famous 96th Street shopping district, Avalon now has a unique shopping district of its own, along Dune Drive. With more than a hundred stores to visit within the seven miles, you are sure to find what you are looking for, and what you didn’t even realize you needed!

When the sun goes down, the excitement is just beginning. Whether it is casual dining with the family or a romantic night out, we have a lot to offer. There are more than 30 restaurants to choose from, with selections from seafood and steak to burgers and wings. After dinner, stop in one of our bars or nightclubs for an after-dinner drink, take in a movie or play a round of miniature golf! From sunrise to sunset, you can make yourself as busy or as relaxed as you want.

So come and stay at our beach house and enjoy Avalon!!

About the owner: We inherited our beautiful vacation home from our parents and are very excited to be able to rent it out so others can enjoy one of the most desirable vacation resorts in the USA!

It offers beautiful beaches, many opportunities for fishing, boating, crabbing, tennis courts, basketball courts, playgrounds, parks, a number of summer sports camps, many fine restaurants & shops and family activities. We have historic villages, beautiful gardens, cultural arts, golf courses, antique shops, and whatever else suits your pleasure within a few minutes' ride of Avalon. So come on down!!

Why the Owner Chose Avalon, NJ, USA:
Here's a recent article about Avalon that explains why we choose to stay in Avalon. (Avalon, NJ)—Avalon has been formally recognized by having one of the Top Ten beaches in the entire state of New Jersey. That announcement was made today during a media event this afternoon in Sandy Hook, New Jersey. Avalon’s beaches placed seventh in the state during an online survey. The balloting process took three months, and resulted in more than 16,000 votes being cast. “This is great news for Avalon residents and visitors”, said Avalon Mayor Marty Pagliughi. “Once again, there is overwhelming proof that residents and visitors appreciate Avalon’s beaches, and recognize the borough’s restoration efforts that have been ongoing for decades”. Couldn't have said it better myself! :-)
