About the Property
Family home, 7 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, large dining room on the beach block!
Our property is not a typical rental -- it's a beach house that we have called home for 25+ years. But with the kids of 2 families all grown up and moved on -- we want new families to enjoy their summers here, just as we have. Our tag line -- all you need to pack is your suitcase. No lugging linens and towels and chairs and toys and umbrellas....if you are used to renting, you know what that extra car is filled with! We offer a family gathering spot -- ready to give everyone a place to relax, enjoy the beach, and settle down to share meals at our 'seats 14' dining room table -- the gathering place for all visitors!
Multiple generations are our happiest tenants! Grandparents can have their adult children and all their grandchildren enjoy the beach together! Check out LINKS TO MORE INFORMATION below for a link to our website about our home.
With 7 bedrooms and beds for 13, along with 4 full baths and a powder room -- it's an ideal place for grandparents to vacation with adult children and their grandchildren. With a living room, a family room and a porch and deck, there is room for everyone to wander off and read, watch the Phillies or Pirates in HD, or just have conversation in the living room - time together AND time alone. We've got an indoor sun porch with wicker furniture and lovely ceiling fans for reading and puzzles and games, and an attached deck on the 2nd floor for easy access to the sun with modern and comfortable furniture. We've got DVD players and VHS players, with a pretty awesome collection of family-friendly films. The link for our home website is available below.
Our home is located on the beach block, and we are less than 20 'shore blocks' to walk to town, on bike-lane lined Second Avenue. No busy streets to cross to get to the sand! We are adjacent to the extensive acreage known as the "nuns' retreat and beach" as well as the Bird Sanctuary. We are a short walk to a small community playground with swings and climbing equipment -- our kids all learned to ride 2-wheelers in this little bit of quiet at the shore. We believe that our 'Beach House' is truly a family-friendly retreat for your summer vacation.
And it's not just about summer ! We are perfect for 'get aways' for families or bridge clubs or reunions. With a fully-equipped kitchen, a large dining room and 4 full baths, it's a great off-season or holiday retreat for families, groups or couples. Have a wedding in town? Try us --our 7 bedrooms beats any hotel pricing for sure! The town is quiet and there's no need to drive around. (3 night minimum preferred in off-season). Call us or send us an email for more information. MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY is 14 of any age- no exceptions without written authorization in the lease. No rentals to under 25 without prior authorization.

Year Purchased: 1985
About the owner: Our beach house is not only family-friendly, it's family-owned. Bought in 1985, it's been a family center for more than a generation. Now the grandparents are great-grandparents, and we've got another generation lining up to 'use the beach house.' We would love to share our beach house with you -- it's our home and we are pretty careful to make sure our tenants think it can be their home too!
Why the Owner Chose Stone Harbor, NJ, USA:
Our kids have grown up with memories of this house and this town -- and hope to bring their own children here. We chose Stone Harbor because we all love the ocean, and the crowds are so much more manageable...there's room to play frisbee on the beach! The small town feel of the community around 96th street freed up our kids to experience summers the way we had...riding bikes, doing soccer camp, working at Springers, and participating in the local community theater. We play golf too -- and there are so many courses within 30 minutes of the house that we never ran out of options. The kids can ride bikes -- anywhere -- and the walk to town is so easy that we rarely use our car once we arrive. The Boardwalk at Wildwood (20 minutes) has some awesome amusement rides (and water parks) -- and provides that authentic beach experience once or twice each summer. Ocean City Boardwalk is a bit further, but an easy drive for a day or evening on the Boards at Ocean City. Why our house? Because it will feel like home.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
One summer at our home and you'll be sold on the joys of having a dining room that will seat everyone -- and a kitchen that is made for 'many cooks' in the kitchen. Conventional cooking equipment, gas stove, convection and microwave ovens, a full freezer to bring food from home, lobster pots and crackers (and a great source for live lobsters if you're game!) The hot water heater never seems to run out of hot water, which is a joy when a house full return from the beach and want to use the 5 showers (one outdoors). The Air conditioning is nice, but sea breezes and the sound of the birds in the Bird Sanctuary, along with ceiling fans in the bedrooms and on the indoor porch, means you can enjoy the summer the way you remember it growing up. We're just a short walk to the beach, and we've got chairs and beach towels and umbrellas and games....whatever you can imagine. We've got a house full of books -- we promise you all can find something good to read! Because the beach is shared with the Summer Retreat for Immaculata's nuns, it's a quiet guarded beach that's adjacent to an active boogie-board guarded beach. If you have little ones, you'll find you can relax while in the sun because the beach isn't filled with day trippers....but your own teens can pop one beach south and party with the crowds!
