About the property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6 - 8)

Bay Head is the crown jewel of the New Jersey Shore with it's historic cedar sided homes and bountiful colorful gardens filled with hydrangea. Our charming home is a recently renovated (2012) 'Original Bay Header' which has been lovingly restored with respect for its casual beachside personality. This house is set back from the street and has two side yards for the perfect outdoor BBQ or game of croquet.

The first floor has an open floorplan with the kitchen, TV room and dining room all off the sunny front and side porches. A small Den and 2nd TV room is off the dining area. The washer/dryer is tucked away in the first floor 1/2 bathroom right by the side entrance around from the two outdoor showers.

The second floor has 4 small but cozy cottage size bedrooms. There are two rooms that have full size beds, 1 room with a set of twin beds and another room with a set of bunked beds (twin top and full size folding futon on the bottom). The 2nd floor bathroom has a clawfoot tub retrofitted with a hand held shower.

The house has been updated with central AC and heat with ceiling fans on the first floor and on the porch.

The beach is a short walk (Johnson). There is plenty to do for a fun filled beach vacation in Bay Head.

Great Beach Vacation in an adorable Bay Head cottage

  • 5 of 5

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!!
