Property description

We welcome you to our summer beach home. We three siblings share this family home and have vacationed here for years with our children.

Our home is a classic upside-down style with a full garage on the ground floor and living area on the second floor and is located two short blocks from the beach and only one block from the main shopping/dining Dune Drive in Avalon. Since it is our home, it is furnished with everything you need to live comfortably and yet be on vacation. While the beach is only a 2 minute walk away, you may enjoy simply relaxing on the second floor deck that stretches the full width of the house. Half is roofed so you can escape from the sun and enjoy dinner on the deck in the shade.

The second floor is a ranch-style home with a large living/dining area, kitchen, laundry, bath, master bedroom with a queen bed and a separate bath, and two additional bedrooms, both with 2 twin beds; both of these may be put together to make a king, using the supplied king bedding. The garage is stocked with all sorts of bikes, boogie boards, beach chairs and beach toys. There is 4th bedroom on the ground floor equipped with bunks and twins to handle family overflow.

We provide paper, laundry, and cleaning products and some kitchen spices and cooking supplies. Wash away your beach sand in the outdoor shower. Avalon Beach is a limited access beach, but we provide 6 beach tags for our guests.

Painting, carpeting, tile, and furnishings were recently updated.
All kitchen appliances (stove, microwave, dishwasher, and refrigerator) were replaced in 2013 with stainless steel GE appliances.

We have great neighbors/friends in this family community, so we ask that you keep noise levels and gatherings to a minimum.
There is no smoking or pets allowed on the property by guests.
