3BR, OCEAN VIEWS, INLET LOCATION WITH ISLAND BREEZES, GREAT FAMILY HOME!
26 West 8th Street is a well-loved home that reflects a simpler life; with an updated yet basic kitchen, with a clothes dryer but a clothesline that makes much more sense, with an outdoor shower that renders bathing inside mundane, and let’s not forget riding bikes to the bakery or library instead of getting in the car. It is how life at the beach should be lived, simply!!
Less than 100 yards from the beach, with fantastic views of Sea Isle Inlet, this family-friendly home makes heading to the beach for the day easy. If something has been forgotten, or for lunch on the deck, leave your things on the beach and walk the few minutes it takes to get back.
The 8th Street Beach is located on the north end of the island, the first of Avalon's 60 some beaches, so there are little or no crowds with only your neighbors joining you for fun in the sun. The jetty, which cradles the beach, can be explored to find a rich array of ocean life and during high tides and high waves a wading pool forms creating endless fun for all.
If you have had too much sun and want to check in with the rest of the world, use the in-house WiFi or hop on one of the bikes and head to the Avalon Library for a quiet space to work. Restaurants, ice cream, tennis, basketball, playground, miniature golf and the arcade are all within walking or biking distance.

About Linda Miner
This home has been a place of reconnecting to family for over four generations. Many of our fondest memories are roaming Avalon as children getting to know the island, each other and ourselves. 26 West 8th Street holds a special place in our hearts as it will for you and your family.
Linda Miner purchased this House in 1964
Why Linda Miner chose Avalon
It's conveniently located to one of the best beaches in Avalon, views across the inlet to Sea Isle, a few blocks from the bay for pier fishing and the Avalon Yatch Club for sailing, as well as the 8th street tennis courts and ball fields.
What makes this House unique
Three bedrooms upstairs with a over-flow twin- bed space on the lower level and a covered car-port allows for children to play in a cool space. The lot is bordered by the only remaining bayberry bushes around and the cool breezes from the ocean reach the house because we are not penned in by other homes. There is an open corridor to the beach and a jetty that brings much fun at high tide with abundant marine life.

Had a great week. House worked out just fine with its proximity to the ocean. Made it easy to go back and forth. Love the renovations to the bathrooms and out side shower. Nice upgrades.
We just returned from another great week in Avalon. This was our seventh consecutive year at 26 W. 8th. With each return, we find some new improvement. This year we arrived to find all of the bathrooms had been completely re-done. While I personally miss the 1960s-era pink tile in the master bath, everyone else was delighted with the updated finishes and fixtures. The house is so conveniently located and the views of the inlet and jetty are really great. Simple beach living as it is meant to be.
Thank you, Jamie!! I dig the 1960's vibe as well...we tried to keep that going but needed to clean it up a bit. Also, thank you for your love of the house!! We are of like-mind on that!! See you next year!
Classic Avalon Beach Home
We've rented this lovely home in Avalon's quiet north end for a week each summer for 5 or 6 years running. The location can't be beat (100 feet from beach entrance with views of the inlet). Every year we're pleasantly surprised by some upgrade or other that the owners have made over the previous winter. This past year they replaced and expanded the outdoor shower area and the prior year they rebuilt the front deck and railings and bought new outdoor furniture.
The furnishings are simple and comfortable - as the beach should be. The living room and front deck create a combined space that is great for entertaining and family gatherings. There's almost always a breeze off the ocean and in most years we've only had to use the AC sparingly (admittedly, our 2016 week was hot as the devil and we ran the AC most of the week - works great). The bunk room on the first level is great for teenagers and college-aged kids (and their friends). Beach chairs, toys, bicycles and kayaks are available for use.
The owners are very responsive and easy to work with. By far the most enjoyable home vacation rental we've ever had.
Thank you, Jamie, for your thoughtful review! We are so grateful you enjoy our home as much as we do!!
Always love having you and your family back!

Our house is on the North end of Avalon, With views of the inlet and Sea Isle City up to Atlantic City. A jetty protects the beach and creates an amazing tidal pool during high tides full of marine wildlife. We enjoy a quiet beach with varied size waves, surfing, sea kayaking and fishing off the jetty.
