Good fun beach house

  • 5 of 5

My family (wife & three children, aged 6-10) thoroughly enjoyed 134 Bridge. Easy walk through charming Bay Head, past the bakery-good treats-to the beach. The house, even though over 100 years old, is totally air-conditioned, and modernized. Kitchen is packed with every pot & pan needed, and very casual & roomy. Backyard deck & BBQ and big lawn was great. Real nice place.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My family & I thoroughly enjoyed staying in Bay Head-the town is quiet, quaint, and easy paced, as we like it- and, especially at 134 Bridge Ave. The house is totally comfortable, spacious, well equipped - the kitchen has every imaginable pot & pan, the BBQ is super hot, and well located with very friendly neighbors. Thanks for the opportunity to be there. Frank

Cottage in Bayhead

  • 4 of 5

I have rented this cottage several times from Bryan. He is very accommodating. The cottage is very private, clean and comfortable. Its is a good location -close to beach, little shops and restaurants in town. We enjoy going to Bayhead very much.

We loved it. Great property!

  • 4 of 5

The property was great! Loved the location. Great backyard and deck for entertaining. Nice wrap around porch to relax on during a thunderstorm. And kitchen/family room were perfect. My only complaint is the shower door in the master bath. Fortunately I love outdoor showers so used that the whole week.

3 weeks vacation

  • 4 of 5

Very spacious house with a great yard. No complaints about the home at all!

Downside is location. Bay Ave is incredibly busy. One cannot sleep without shutting the windows due to the traffic speeding by. Crossing the street was a concern since we have "tweens" that are responsible enough to cross yet still not developed enough to always make the right decisions. Cars definitely drive over the limit.

Also regarding location, the first couple of nights we enjoyed the Church bells, but since we were there for 3 weeks, they became annoying. The Church is less than one block to the house, so the bells were incredibly loud. The charm wore off quickly.

If you are a beach person, it is a good location, but more if you have a bike than walking. There are better house locations that are closer to the beach. If you want to join the pool or go to the library and play ground, the house is in excellent walking distance to those. The house is also very close to the town dump, which was convenient.

The cottage is quaint and good for either a couple or ppl who need an extension to the house. It was redone nicely, but the bathroom needs a sink with one faucet as opposed to the dated one with one cold tap and one hot tap. You need to be under 5'5" without having to crouch in the outside shower bc the shower head is too low. Inside shower is like a standing coffin. It is overpriced by a few hundred. The cottage is more of a place to sleep and shower, not a place you would want to hang out for extended periods of time.

Considering the expense of these rentals, we were surprised we had to pay for cleaning upon departure. We've never experienced a rental where the owner didn't cover the cost.

Bayhead itself doesn't have any good restaurants, but the good thing is you are very close to Point Pleasant, which has many restaurants. Bayhead is a pretty town, but if I was to rent down the shore again, Spring Lake is a much more beautiful town with great shopping and restaurants.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your very favorable (4 of 5) review. But do let me point out some minor errors. The front house property is located on Bridge Ave not Bay Ave. The 25 mph speed limit is actually quite strictly enforced. All intersections are clearly lined for pedestrian crossing & most have temporary signs telling drivers to stop for pedestrians in cross walks. There are traffic lights at the busier intersections of Lake Ave & Main Ave (Rt. 35) to facilitate pedestrian crossing. The church bells sound twice a day at noon & 5 PM for 120 seconds at a decibel level of 85 that's not too overwhelming. There is no town "dump" in BayHead. All refuse is removed to western Ocean County & disposed of there. The respondant was referring to the town recycling facility located at the rear of Evergreen Park at 216 Park Ave about four blocks from the house. The outdoor shower head at the Cottage is the standard 76" height. The inside shower stall is a standard size 34" x 34" fiberglass unit. Standard accepted practice at the shore (to keep costs down) is for the occupant to leave the rental as they got it. As it turned out this occupant incurred a cleaning charge of $35.00 (one hour) for the Cottage & $140.00 for the main house. Certtinly not a burden considering the three weeks of occupancy. Bay Head does have a small commercial area, but besides Dorcas's lunch & light dinners & Central Market's prepared foods The Grenville & Theresa's South are highly rated establishments serving very fine cuisine. Indeed Spring Lake is a lovely town with a more expansive commercial district, but you would never get an equivalent rental as close to the beach for the the price of Bay Head.
