About the property

The clever layout offers views from every window.

The open kitchen/family/living room is dramatic yet comfortable, and features unobstructed views of the water, dock, and courtyard.

Enter the house through a private courtyard garden, with lush plantings and modern sculpture – a great place to enjoy the breeze and relax when the sun is high over the bay. Also, a private outdoor shower can be accessed from the courtyard for an “after beach” rinse. Did we mention you are just 6 houses from the beach?

Open the front door to find an open-plan modern space with vaulted ceiling, white oak hardwood floors, a beautifully appointed kitchen with eat-in island and dining/living areas with bay views and that open out to the brand new glass-paneled deck. You are ON the water. Did we mention the upper deck is gated for kid safety?

The first floor includes a master bedroom with sliding door to bayside deck, king bed, 2 large closets, HD TV / DVD player and full bath. The water views continue in three bedrooms on the 2nd level: a second master bedroom with queen bed, full bath, and 2 additional bedrooms with double twin beds and their own HD TV’s and DVD players. One twin BR is outfitted with a 42-inch HD TV, perfect for use with your Wii or video game set-up in this “kids’ TV room.” The home is Wi-Fi enabled, so bring your laptop – and e-mail your friends pictures or stay unplugged!

Outside, a brand new bi-level deck and private dock, perfect for fishing, crabbing or just sitting and watching the orange/red sunset dissolve into the bay. Did we also mention: An outdoor built-in gas grill for family barbecue? Or the Marina just 3 doors away if you would like to take sailing lessons or rent a boat? You are one block from tennis and basketball courts, waterfront walking trail and tot friendly playground all found at Sunset Park?

About Peter Berke

This special beach house was built with a lot of love by our parents. The house is now owned by their two children and respective families. For us, this wonderful house is filled with wonderful memories of our parents

Peter Berke purchased this house in 1975

Why Peter Berke chose Harvey Cedars

The house is set right on the bay. It is also, just six houses to the ocean, as you get the best of both worlds.

What makes this house unique

The sunsets are amazing.

The house is right on the bay. Amazing sunsets. The back of the house has both an upper and lower deck, that then leads to our 'dock on the bay'. The beach is right across the street. A 3 minute walk. We provide six beach badges. Enjoy the outdoor shower when you return from the beach. You will feel like a million dollars.

The perfect beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

I cannot recommend this house enough! This house and the owners exceeded all expectations. They were organized, quick to respond to any questions and clearly care about their renters' experience. We brought towels and sheets, but they have thought of everything else! The house is right on the bay and made for easy access to the water and beautiful sunsets, but only a block from the beach! The house also has some great amenities, we rode bikes, went kayaking, took our son to the nearby park and had an absolute blast. I have never written an online review, but this experience was truly worthy of one. Thank you!

Owner's Response: I am very appreciative of the guests review. It is important to note that moving forward the kayak and bikes will not be available. However, they can easily be rented from nearby rental shops. Peter
