About Nancy

I grew up at the Jersey Shore and currently reside in Florida.

Nancy purchased this house in 1975

Why Nancy chose Shore Region

Strandvue has been in our family since 1975. For many years, it has been our base to enjoy the Jersey shore. We love to come here with our family and friends

What makes this house unique

From the nostalgic 4th of July parade, passing just out front; To walking the boardwalk on crisp fall mornings; To watching blustery winter storms with a cup of coffee from the 2nd floor sunroom; these can all be enjoyed from this beachside retreat. We love the community of Ocean Grove and you will too!! Just over an hour from Manhattan by train (Asbury Park) or ferry (Highlands) it is also the perfect location to enjoy a few days in New York City.

Comfortable house, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

A thoroughly comfortable place to stay. The house is just as it appears in the photos. Manager was very responsive, although I can't say that we ran into any problems. This is no one's home, it is an income property, with the usual upsides (you don't have to worry about disarranging or mangling anyone's personal stuff ) and downsides of a house that no one actually lives in. A very comfortable place for a group holiday.

Great location and lovely area.

  • 4 of 5

Boxes of flooring in the living room upon arrival.. Property manager traveling. My husband had to move the heavy boxes. Cleaning crew walked in with a key while we still had another night in the house. My daughter was alone and because it was three men it frightened her.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and 4 stars! Only wish that new porch furniture had arrived prior to your stay so you could have enjoyed it. Amazon had given us incorrect delivery date. I did respond quickly even though travelling, I do have several handy people in the area that would have assisted. Again, I apologize for that inconvenience and the for the first time in 5 years, my trustworthy cleaning crew showing up on the wrong day.. Again appreciate the stars for the home & area!

A Step Back inm Time

  • 5 of 5

We loved the old historic house that just keeps on going. You feel like you are stepping back in time. You fall asleep to the waves at the beach across the street. It was a perfect pre-wedding location and makes for great pictures. Nancy who we coordinated with is excellent and lives really close. She was a pleasure to deal with. As a historic home no central air but the window units do the trick. Very special memories and great old charming town.

Ecstatic on picking The Strandvue for our engagement party

  • 5 of 5

OK where do I start, from the exterior look at the Strandvue to the spacious front porch to the abundant room inside everything was just amazing! We had our engagement party here with over 70 people and even though there was plenty of space inside we chose to do it on the front porch. With the food drinks and dessert inside the front porch allowed us plenty of space for tables and chairs, it looked amazing. The weather was perfect and having the beach directly across the street with an amazing view was a highlight to everyone who attended. The manager Nancy was very helpful during the whole process. We are eagerly waiting to come back to the Strandvue for our rehearsal dinner!

Perfect venue for our wedding

  • 5 of 5

This was the most perfect place to hold our wedding for 110 people. We had many family members from around the country stay with us and in the many surrounding bed and breakfasts. The house is made for absolute fun. The front porch alone could be the where you spend the entire time you are there. The house is well stocked with everything you could possibly need. There are plenty of towels, soft sheets and coffee mugs! The manager Nancy is wonderful. She is very helpful and accomodating. Town is a short walk and the ocean is across the street. Made for a dreamy, funfilled week of celebration. We all loved it and look forward to the next time we are able to spend time there again!

Perfection! Fabulous Beachfront Location - Large home w/ huge front proch overlooking ocean!

  • 5 of 5

Unbelievable home, lots of spacious rooms, extremely large covered front porch overlooking the ocean.

The location is perfect for all occasions, walk to shops, beach, restaurants and night life. Home sits on a beautiful lot directly in front of the ocean and a gorgeous beach in an Historic Jersey shore community.

Every activity you would want is steps away yet this home provides privacy and roominess for all.

Perfect for family vacation, a wedding or event, or a weekend getaway to the shore. We loved it!
