Bay Head House Description


A lovely 3-story beach-front home, newly rebuilt after hurricane Sandy, keeps the original charm of the Bay Head homes built a century ago. The house features beds for 11, a gourmet kitchen, high-speed WiFi, and is just a two-minute walk to the beach entrance.


The main floor features a beautiful enclosed porch with views of the beach, a large family room, gourmet kitchen, and adjoining dining room for family meals and activities. The large family room has plenty of comfortable seating, a 50” TV with surround sound, an Apple TV, and Xfinity cable. Outside you'll find wrap-around decks with plenty of lounge furniture, a large gas grill, and a heated, enclosed shower for cleaning off after spending the day on the beach.

The second and third floors have beds for 11, along with more lounge space, expansive views of the beach, and air mattresses (sleeping an additional five people in three twins and a queen). The second floor has four bedrooms and two full bathrooms; the third floor has one bedroom and one full bath.

The private Bay Head beach expanse is clean with designated swimming areas, patrolled by City of Bay Head lifeguards. Enjoy swimming, surfing, occasional pick-up volleyball games, and evening walks.


Activities in the immediate area include the famous downtown Bay Head bakery, post-office, and boutique shopping area – small, but complete. Gourmet restaurants, ice cream, a boardwalk, and amusement park are just minutes away in Point Pleasant. Full grocery and shopping centers are within 5 miles of the rental location. Should you wish to visit New York City during your stay, a commuter train is just a 10-minute walk and will drop you in Penn Station. Uber is also available in the town of Bay Head should you wish to travel here without a car.

Why Richard Silverman chose Bay Head

We loved the Bay Head venue. East Ave. parallels the ocean for about 2 miles and is wonderful for long strolls, jogging, bike riding, house and people watching. The summer scene is active and loads of fun.

Perfect Exceptional Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place for a family to stay. It is as beautiful as the pictures look. The owner was accommodating and truly nice person to deal with as was the manager Kathy. They called to see if we needed anything and I can honestly say this home has everything you need. The owner has this home as organized as possibly could be. He has everything bikes, beach chairs, and all items are high quality and in perfect condition I would highly recommend this vacation rental to any family looking for perfect home in a perfect location.

One of Bay Heads Best, Newly Renovated, Top Quality Furnishings, Simply Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The long weekend stay was wonderful, the house simply amazing. The beach is a short walk across the street, 4 bikes in the garage to venture into town, if you so choose. The challenge for the weekend, figure out what they don't have at the house, tough task... A truly amazing stay, hats off to the owner for putting such a superb place together.

Spacious, relaxing, incredible ocean views, steps from the beach

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just spent a few days in this wonderful home and loved it. All of us--adults, teens and four year old--felt incredibly comfortable and at ease in this spacious, well appointed property. From the second and third floors you can see the ocean through almost every window, and downstairs the sound of crashing waves fills the rooms. There is a wonderful covered deck/porch that looks out at the beach too. Great place to grab a book a read! This home is perfect for a family getaway. Great for kids. My four year old goddaughter even exclaimed at one point that this must be our new bay head home, she loved it that much. High recommended.
