About the property

3 bedrooms, 1 & 1/2 bathrooms, 1 H/C outdoor shower, Sleeps 6

Our solid bookings year after year w/repeat tenants is a testament to the cleanliness, comfort & location of our home. Located in a unique niche of Pt. Pleasant bordering Bayhead, our home is only 2 blocks to the bay and 9 blocks to ocean, and sits on a large, grassy, corner lot (dead end side street- great for kids) with offstreet parking for 3 cars and plenty of street parking as well. Our location has always been cherished by our tenants, who are familiar with the area and recognize Lovelandtown as a special place for those seeking a Bayhead location at a fair price, especially.

Our historic and charming Lovelandtown community provides a pleasant walk to Bay Head beaches through Johnson Bros. Marina (under 3/4 mile;12 min walk). Walk just down our block past the pristinely landscaped Bay Point Townhouse development that straddles both Bay Head and Point Pleasant, until you reach the harbor and public dock. It's a great place for kids to fish and crab, and for all to enjoy the views and take in the salty air! Just a short walk down the road in the other direction from our home is the channel, with a quaint kids' park on the way. It's just a 7 minute walk to the center of Bay Head where you'll find old standbys like Mueller's Bakery and The Jolly Tar for unique beach gifts, and new favorites like Re Juice a Nation, or Charlie's of Bayhead for waterfront dining and nightlife. For those seeking an old-fashioned, authentic Jersey shore boardwalk experience, Jenkinson's Family Amusement Boardwalk in Point Pleasant is just a 5 minute drive.

This home is used by the owner, impeccably maintained, and rented strictly to families/mature adults. There are A/C units in each bedroom, and an AC unit and 2 ceiling fans on the first floor that serve to cool down the entire house on the hottest of days. Bright, clean, tastefully decorated, comfortable and fully stocked for convenience.

4 Bayhead beach badges, Wifi, limited cable, and linens (see linens policy), are included. Also included for your convenience and enjoyment are: 2 beach chairs, several boogie boards, 2 adult and 2 teen bicycles, 1 trike, a "Green Machine" (little kids' favorite).

Room Details/Second Floor: 3 private bedrooms and full bathroom. First Floor: open plan with spacious kitchen and ample countertops; DR seats 6 with a counter that seats 2 more. New dishwasher, oven and refrigerator (less than 1 year old). The bar separates the kitchen and dining room in a semi-open floor plan. Living room is bright and tastefully decorated with exposed brick. Flat screen TV, DVD player, and X Box game system. Washer (new) and dryer, and 1/2 bath also on first floor. Futon for extra sleeping space off dining room.

Great location!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time we ever rented a beach house. What a wonderful, time was had by all. My kids and grandkids enjoyed the beach, the yard and the fun stuff in the garage!! It was so close to everything and the neighbors were so friendly!! We can't wait to go again. The house is adorable. My boys liked the outdoor shower, especially. Oh yeah, and the weather was fantastic!! Thank you so much!!!

Comfortable, clean and great neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

We had family in for the New Year holiday and almost booked two hotel rooms until we got word of this house from locals. It was perfect - clean, comfortable, great fireplace, very pleasantly decorated and had everything we needed. For a summer house, it was still stocked with comforters for winter stays. We entertained our family of 15 and had plenty of space on the first floor. The neighborhood is great. We walked to the Mount Street beach each morning, felt like we were in Bayhead but paid very reasonable rate compared to Bayhead rentals we inquired about.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect spot for my family's Bay Head vacation. It was clean and safe with comfortable beds and great water pressure. Everything we needed to enjoy our week at the beach was available at the house. I don't know if the front porch always has a breeze, but it did while we were there!

The owner also provided exceptional customer service including quick responses to our questions and clear rental expectations. My family would definitely stay here again.

Perfect for Our Family

  • 5 of 5

The house was great! It had everything we needed. Traveling with small children is difficult because of the amount of gear you have to pack, the extras like the pack and play and the baby gate saved us. Our son loved all the games and all the goodies in the garage. The location was perfect so close to everything and very easy to get to. We were at the Boardwalk every day. Hope to be back again soon!

Wonderful Shore House -- Great for Kids.

  • 5 of 5

We really loved every minute of our stay here -- the house is well decorated, clean, comfortable, and spacious. The kitchen is well equipped, as were the linens and there were lots of special touches, like the beach chairs and mats in the garage, the collection of board games (great for the kids winding down at end of the day) and the books upstairs (which my kids loved picking from for a bedtime story). My two were excited to share the room with the twin trundle bed -- like a special sleepover! There's a great seafood place across the street and we enjoyed walks to the beach, to the bay, and to a very nearby park. Looking forward to our next stay! .

Comfortable, Convenient, Clean Shore House

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this house! Although it's 2 BR, the 2nd BR is so large & well laid out, it was like having an extra BR. Extra benefit was not having to bring our own linens (since we flew in from out of state). The house was clean, spacious, and had pretty much everything we needed for a week at the shore. We especially liked having a real dining room with a large table where we could host family & friends for a meal inside (since it was in the high 90s when we were there). And it was nice to be so close to good fishing & crabbing sites in addition to the beach. Thanks!

Car: not necessary

Our home is part of the Lovelandtown Historic District, located in a desirable location that is close to water - ocean, bay and channel -in almost every direction! Bayhead is one of the Jersey shore's gems, and a sought after, upscale rental area. Our home is literally steps away from the Bayhead border, and closer to the beach than many Bayhead neighborhoods (just under 3/4 of a mile). Parking beachfront at Bayhead is easy and available for those who prefer to drive. If Pt. Pleasant Beach is your preference, we are less than a 5 minute drive away, or a bike ride away for enthusiasts! Non residents may join Johnson Bros. Pool Club for 1/2 to full season. A pristine beach (Bayhead is truly different), Jersey's best waterfront rawbars, excellent restaurants, amusement parks and more, all within easy access.

Other Activities: Jenkinson's Boardwalk & Aquarium, Bayhead Yacht Club, Johnson Bros. Pool Club

FEES FOR DIFFERENT PAYMENT OPTIONS: FOR TENANTS SENDING A "REQUEST TO BOOK" WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO USE "OTHER OPTIONS", then select the "E CHECK" option when selecting payment options (rather than providing "credit card" information); this is a no fee option for both landlord and tenant, so you will only pay the service fee if you choose on line booking with this "e check" method of payment. If you pay using a credit card, you will be charged a rental rate of 2.9% (domestic rentals) or 4.9% (international rentals) greater than the published rates above. We also accept PayPal or check by mail for rentals booked at least one month in advance; neither of these payment methods requires you to pay a service fee for using this site.

JULY 29 - AUGUST 5 SPECIAL: We will honor the $1600 weekly offer - can't figure out how to make Homeaway's website calculate it this way, but it's $1600!

Owner's Cancellation Policy
