My favorite rental down the shore!

  • 5 of 5

I have been visiting Ocean Grove for the past 10 years, and Michael's is by far my favorite rental. Clean, well-appointed, and could not be more convenient to Asbury Park, the Great Auditorium, and of course - the beach! The front porch is one of the best features, but the back patio with grill is a close second.

Owner's Response: Oh Robyn, Such kind words and they are so appreciated. I work so hard to make my house a place of retreat for anyone who comes to visit and feel at home. I have to agree, it's a toss up for me too front porch or back patio. Porch for morning coffee is absolutely the best. Please come stay again any time you need an OG getaway!. All the best, Michael

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I so enjoyed our stay at Michael's home. It is spotless and very well stocked with everything you might need. The walk to the beach is painless and well needed after multiple trips to Day's Ice Cream, which is a short walk.

The yard is lovely and we ate there every night. It is close quarters but everything you need for a beach vacation. We will be back!

Owner's Response: Dear Betty, Thank you so much for your sweet words. My little beach house is my home away from home and I am so happy you enjoyed your time there as much as I do. I love knowing you had everything you needed, that is extremely important to me. Please please come back any time. Cheers, Michael

Summer family get together

  • 5 of 5

Just stayed at Michael's house this past week during a heat wave. It was the perfect time to be at the beach and I can tell you that the air conditioners in this home work really well. We were very comfortable and glad to get back to a nice air conditioned house after a hot sticky day at the beach. The house is equipped with everything that you need. It has a very nice kitchen that opens onto a cozy little yard with beautiful flowers and strung lights on a timer.

I ate breakfast back ther every morning. The front porch is lovely with a swing and two rockers. The bedroom has the most comfortable king size bed. Not many rentals in ocean grove have such a great king sized bed. The linen closet is stocked and there is a washer and dryer in the basement that you can use. Although we brought our own there were beach chairs available.

We rented this house to be with family that own a home in ocean grove and would rent this place again for sure. It is also only one block away from the bridge that crosses into Asbury,

Main Street so you can walk over there to some really great restaurants and nite life.

The only con that I can say which had nothing to do with the house was parking on Saturday, which was atrocious, as is any beach town, but the rest of the week was fine. Parking everywhere is free in Ocean Grove,

Already planning when I can come to Ocean Grove again and stay here.

Adorable Ocean Grove Twin

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for a couple or small family in Ocean Grove. Pictures are a realistic portrayal of this cute little home. All of the amenities that you'll need for your vacation: well appointed kitchen, beautiful backyard and great rocking chair porch, soaps, towles, sheets, BOOKS, etc. Air conditioning was quite effective. The neighbors are very friendly too, which makes you feel right at home.

What a getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Incredible perfect getaway! Only 2 hours from NYC! Perfect for an impromptu get away!

I loved everything, it was so well decorated, whimsical and fun, getting me into the mood for my time at the beach!

I especially loved the BBQ, the glorious gardens and all of the people in the community! There was so much to do and see. The house was the perfect place to unwind.

I could walk EVERYWHERE, there was so much activities. I was in heaven!

Fantastic Oasis Steps from the Sea

  • 5 of 5

This is truly an escape! What a wonderful stay we had in this ADORABLE 2 Bdrm Victorian Duplex steps to the sea! We didn't even need a car! 3 blocks from the train, 4 blocks to the beach and 2 blocks to town - adorable shops, restaurants, ice cream!

What impressed me, was the attention to detail to the renter, from robes to complete guides for everything in the area! We grilled each night in the wonderful patio oasis on a wonderful BBQ, the attention to detail in every room to the patio has been thought of to make it the perfect stay! The kitchen was complete with anything and everything one would need.

Waking up to the birds and the squirrels was a delight. Mornings swinging on the porch, visiting with the neighbors in this historic Victorian community was especially fun.

We felt so welcome, taken care of and relaxed in this amazing community in this adorable retreat! It was easy to walk to Asbury park. There are tons of activities and concerts in this wonderful community! Tons to do, see and be!

Thank you for the relaxing getaway! This is a GREAT place to Stay!

About Michael Louis

Hello, I'm originally from the Show me State, St Louis and that is still home to me. Moved to NY and have been working in the Theatre ever since. I work both on Broadway and Tour with shows taking care of the Costumes and the needs of all who wear them.

Why Michael Louis chose Ocean Grove

I fell in love with Ocean Grove many years ago before it became so popular. Then just a few years ago I knew I needed to own a home I could come to and get out of the city and have my own paradise by the sea. OG is such a unique and special place with tent city in the summer and all the great events held throughout the year. A truly special place and community. Then the added bonus of some of the most wonderful neighbors any could hope for.

What makes this townhome unique

I knew this was the home for me when I saw that porch swing. This townhouse gave me just the right amount of porch and patio space to make the most of outdoor living. Even sitting on the porch through a rain storm is absolutely wonderful.

Car: recommended

Ocean Grove is a small, quaint town along the Jersey Shore. It is a real throw back in time with Beautiful Victorian houses, shops, restaurants and a wonderful seaside boardwalk to stroll or take your morning run. One of my favorite places to be is on the front porch with morning coffee or evening drinks. Only 4 blocks from the beach, the breeze is fantastic and the neighbors are so friendly, it feels like home the minute you sit on the porch swing.

There are free concerts and events all through the year. In the summertime, strolling down the streets to see everyone's blooming gardens is nothing less than spectacular. There is a Huge Flea Market that happens twice a year, with great food and fun for the entire family. In the winter, there are all kinds of special weekends & events to enjoy.

Located less than 2 hours from New York City, it is an easy bus, train or car ride.
