Why John O'Dea chose Southern Shore Region

I grew up in Avalon. I have lived here my entire life. I built this house for my family to live in. Now that my four sons have grown up and two have moved out , the house is too big for us.There is no better place to be in the summer than Avalon!! The bay and the beach offer the best of outdoor activities all year long. I love the small town life but I love the convenient proximity to Philadelphia and New York City.

I like that I can drive an hour and 15 min. to Philadelphia and 2 1/2 hrs. to NYC. It's fun to go to Cape May or Atlantic City to see a show or have dinner or just to walk around. I like to take the kids to Wildwood or Ocean City to the boardwalk. We ride the rides, play some games and eat Macks Pizza. The Atlantic City Airport is a 30 minute ride and flies to our other favorite warm weather destinations destinations like Florida and the Caribbean.

What makes this house unique

My favorite parts of the house are the gourmet kitchen and the private backyard because they seem to be the spots where family and friends like best. I like to have my morning coffee with my feet in the warm pool with the sun in my face or while sitting at the breakast nook in the kitchen. After the beach, I love spending the late afternoon by the pool reading or having cocktails with friends. We like to have dinner outside and often grill or pick up cooked crabs and have a crab feast with Jersey corn and Jersey tomatoes.

Avalon Reunion Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Let's just say that this house is one of the nicest on the island. The accomodations are excellent, from the pool to the beautiful kitchen, to the landscaping and the wonderful and roomy bedrooms. The size, comfort, and privacy made for a great setting for a "shorehouse reunion" of 15 friends who rented in the 90s and to early 2000s. We had a fantastic long weekend reliving some great summer memories from the past, and created some new ones as well. Words cannot express how thankful we are for allowing us to enjoy your wonderful beach house. Thank you so much !!
