Terrific House, Great Location! Has everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted to have found Terry's wonderful house. We were 8 adults and 3 young children and everyone was happy with their rooms. There is even room for a few more if our families grow. And there were plenty of towels and linens. The beach is just a block and a half away. Terry has provided many beach badges, a trunk full of beach towels, 2 umbrellas, a beach tent, many beach chairs, sand toys, and boogie boards. You just need a beach bag. There is a shower to wash off the sand right there as you are about to leave the beach. The charming town is the other direction, and there is a nice boardwalk we walked quite often. We were able to walk our young ones to ice cream, food places, and a splash pad. Our cars stayed parked a lot. The kitchen is fully stocked and there is a grill outside for when you choose to eat at "home" ! We felt very much at home in Terry's house, sitting around the kitchen table, or in the living room, or sitting out on the porch late at night or in the morning or afternoon with her pretty garden, watching the butterflies. The wifi worked great, and the basement was a fun place to occasionally play board games, read, or watch a movie or video on the big screen. We will definitely keep this house in mind for next year!

My friends and I loved the house for our weekend get away! Drinking coffee on the porches, cooking and eating meals in the wonderful kitchen! The house was big enough for each of us to enjoy some alone time as well.

We loved the proximity to the beach. The weather was overcast but we still had a great weekend. We took beach chairs and walked to the beach and did much porch sitting.

Although our original plan was to go out to dinner Saturday night we decided we didn't want to leave the house! Had a wonderful meal with take out from Tallulas!

Thank you Terry for sharing you wonderful home!

perfect home for 3 generations!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Terry's beach house in Ocean Grove. My 85-year old mom stayed in the bedroom on the main floor, with it's own bathroom, which worked out great because stairs are difficult for her. My husband and I stayed in the beautiful master bedroom with a wonderful private balcony, my sister stayed in the middle bedroom, and all the grandkids were thrilled to bunk together in the bunk bed room that also had a nice queen sized bed. We cooked great meals in the well-appointed kitchen, enjoyed nightly walks for ice cream, and loved being an easy walk to Asbury Park. Ocean Grove is a charming community. The house is a block and a half to the beach and there are bathrooms and showers at the beach along with a little snack shack. We also enjoyed hanging out on the front porch. The house was perfect for us. We would definitely rent it again!

Nice beach conveniently located close to the water

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this pretty beach house which was a quick walk to the water. The home was beautifully decorated and had enough room for our large family. It was a short walk to Main Street which has many cute shops, a bank and ice cream. The only suggestion for the owner would be to provide AC in the kitchen. We found it very difficult to cook and eat in that area. Fortunately there is a table in the living room which we could eat at. The outdoor shower was also not available to use since it was filled with beach chairs and the shower did not turn on.

Owner's Response: With the Central AC unit in a joining room and 2 ceiling fans Heat has never been an issue in the Kitchen. We had a heat over 100 degrees the week of this stay : ( Outdoor shower is not a feature listed on VRBO there are Outdoor showers at the end of the street when you come off the Beach.

An Ocean Grove Beauty

  • 5 of 5

What a great Ocean Grove rental! This beautiful home accommodates all ages and was so easy to the beach plus all the great restaurants in Asbury Park. The house now has Wifi, which was mentioned as missing in a previous review. If our vacation schedule allows we will definitely be back to Ocean Grove and this lovely house! Thanks Terry!

great location, comfortable for a crowd

  • 5 of 5

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.
