About the property

8 Bedrooms, 5.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 22

A completely renovated oceanblock eight bedroom house in the upscale and desirable Lower Chelsea District of Atlantic City.

Walk 100 yards to the lifeguard monitored and free beaches of Atlantic City. Enjoy a southerly stroll on the boardwalk to the restaurants and parks and recreational facilities in Ventnor. Or head north up the boardwalk and in .9 miles you'll reach the first of the casinos located in the historic boardwalk area.

You can also head to the marina, just 2 blocks away to enjoy fishing, boating, jet skis and other marina activities.

Atlantic City offers a vacation like no other place in the world.

The home itself has a large deck with a grill and custom built table for 10 off the kitchen - great for outdoor dining and get-together. There is also a large deck on the 2nd floor with ocean views - great for evening drinks and relaxation as well as sun bathing on those not-so-warm days in the spring and fall.

Over 5000 sq. ft of living space inside the home are highlighted by a bright and airy open 1st floor plan. It includes an enclosed porch, 2 living room areas, wet bar, dining room for 12 and top of the line kitchen area designed with double convection ovens, new refrigerator, and microwave, granite counter tops and brand new cabinets. Everything is top of the line!

The ground floor has 2 bedrooms (1 with a king and the other with 2 twins), 2 baths, a living room area and television, as well as a second, completely redone and modern kitchen that mimics the kitchen on the 1st floor. There is also a new high-efficiency washer and dryer set. This is a great floor for a traveling au pair, grandparents, teenagers, or friends visiting for a period of your stay. It's a separate yet connected part of the entire home. Only pluses to this special space!!

The 2nd floor has a master suite (king bed) with ocean views from the large balcony. It also boasts an extensive walk in closet with a built-in granite-topped vanity area. Also in the suite's bath area is an infinity shower and double vanity. The 2nd floor also has a second bedroom with a queen bed and television as well as access to the 2nd floor deck. A 3rd bedroom (queen bed) is located next to another bath on this floor. This floor also has a new high-efficiency washer and dryer set.

The 3rd floor has 3 bedrooms, 2 with queen beds and 1 with a double bed and all with large closets. There is also a full bath on this floor and mini balcony for admiring the views and taking in some fresh air.

Each floor in the home is zoned separately providing everyone with the maximum amount of comfort. The entire home is also WI-Fi enabled so you can catch-up on emails quickly or look for restaurants or events nearby on the web. State of the art security and entry cameras and systems are also included in the home's special features.

All the bedrooms and sleeping accommodations come with new, freshly-cleaned-before-your-stay linens.

3 distinct entrances and on street as well as driveway parking easily accommodate large groups traveling separately.

Area information: famous for its boardwalk, casino gambling, sandy beaches, shopping centers, view of the Atlantic Ocean, and as the inspiration for the board game Monopoly, Atlantic City is a resort community located on Absecon Island on the Atlantic coast of North America.

Some of the casinos include The Trop, Trump Taj Mahal, Trump Marina, Caesars Atlantic City, and Borgata.

With quick and safe (no streets for the kids to cross) access to the beach, its proximity to the boardwalk, casinos, parks, tennis, restaurants and the marina; this is quite simply the best vacation home you'll find for a family summer vacation, a weekend with friends or any other group event that brings you to the New Jersey shore area. We love our beach home and we know you will too.

About John Murphy

We live in New Jersey, have 5 children and enjoy spending time with our family and friends.

John Murphy purchased this house in 2013

Why John Murphy chose Atlantic City

We love visiting Atlantic City and all it has to offer. This home felt like our second home from the time we saw it. Its new tech features, open and airy design and proximity to the ocean, casinos and Ventnor park and restaurants made it a perfect home for us.

What makes this house unique

The Ocean views and large open gathering areas are what we love most about the home. We love doing things and going places while we're there, but our time together is our most valued time. This home is perfect for a family or group of friends to get-together and spend time with one another while also taking in all that the area has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I rented this beautiful home the weekend of December 20th to celebrate my birthday with my family. The owners were a pleasure to deal with and upon arrival I was greeted with a beautiful note , birthday card and a bottle of wine from the owners . This was such a wonderful gesture from the owners and so unexpected. The pictures online does not do the home any justice. The home is so elegantly decorated and so immaculate. It felt very warm and cozy and a home away from home. This home is by far one of the best homes I've rented in a long time. The home is extremely spacious and easily accommodated our party of 16 people. Everyone had a bed to sleep in which could be difficult with such a large party however this did not present an issue at this home. We loved the open floor plan on the second floor which included the kitchen , dining area and living room . We were able to congregate and enjoy time together as a family. Although, our time at the home was limited we were able to take some pictures on the boardwalk as the home is walking distance to the beach. The casinos were a short distance away and we utilized the jitney bus to get around. There are tons of restaurants within the vicinity and the home is in the perfect location. Thank you to the owners for opening your beautiful home to the public. My family and I are looking forward to renting this home again sometime in the near future. I would highly recommend this home to all as the amenities are unlimited and this home is an absolute treasure.

Perfect Beach House!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful home for one night so my sister could get married on the beach. The house was more than perfect! The bride and groom were both able to get ready in separate areas of the home without running into each other. There was more than enough room on the main floor for everyone to mingle and never felt crowded! We loved being able to sit outside- only problem was deciding which outdoor space to use! This was the easiest vacation rental experience and we’ve already booked next year to celebrate their 1 year wedding anniversary! Can’t wait to come back to Atlantic City!

Beach Vacation

  • 4 of 5

My housemates and I recently visited this house for a vacation to the beach. While planning to stay at the house, I had a conception that it would be a little more accessible, with just two steps to get down into the main floor. However, there were many more steps throughout the main floor, and with no railing to step down, my housemates and I found it a little difficult to maneuver, as many of us need supports in walking, such as walkers. This made for somewhat dangerous walking. Other than slight difficulties in accessibility, the kitchen area was very nice. Some of the beds were a bit higher than what our normal bed heights are, and seemed a little difficult to get in and out of. There was a good amount of space in the house itself, and it was in a perfect location for getting to the beach. I would recommend saying that the house is not accessible, given that we had some difficulty getting around, and people who require accessibility would not be able to get around without difficulty.

Owner's Response: Hi Laura! Thanks for the feedback! We've had many groups stay at the home with mobility challenges and while it's not right for everyone it's been more than satisfactory for all the groups we've hosted previously. I wish the video of the home you requested several weeks before your stay was perhaps longer or had more areas of the home in it but since you only asked for the first floor that's what I sent you. It was my understanding you only had one or two folks with issues getting around and I thought I was clear there were two steps into and out of the ground floor and other additional steps on the first floor. Anyhow, sorry you had the wrong conception of the house and it's layout, I'll try and be more specific next time for other guests who inquire about the home's layout. Best wishes!

Limited parking and seriously squeaking staircase

  • 3 of 5

It appeared that there is no air condition in the two bedrooms in the basement. The basement was muggy.

The staircase framing needs repairs. It has lots of squeaking noise when walking on the staircase.

The garage smells mold.

Owner's Response: Hi Alex, Thanks for staying in our home. Sorry you didn't like the staircase sounds. My wife grew up with an original staircase in her home and when this home was redone we decided together to keep the original stairs. They do definitely squeak, which we love! Not sure I can get my wife to replace them so nothing I can do about that. Each floor of the home is controlled by a central AC unit. There are 4 zones for 4 floors with the ground floor having it's own blower and condenser. I'm surprised you didn't see the vents in the ceiling. That's a tell tale sign of HVAC in the house. Anyhow, the ground floor of course has central air conditioning. Next time you stay in a house I suggest you ask the homeowner while you're there about any HVAC concerns. I certainly could have addressed this one as maybe you didn't know how to work the thermostat. And the garages on all my beach homes have distinct, I've been here since 1915, smells to them. Nothing I can do about that either but there is no mold as there is no dry wall in them, only exposed brick and mortar. The driveway accommodates 4 or 5 cars depending on their size. This is made clear on the home's web page and during the pre-arrival communication process. There are also on-street parking options and instructions for folks with more cars. Unfortunately, there are no homes in Atlantic City or any surrounding beach town with unlimited parking. Maybe you just didn't understand our communications or read them. If you needed more parking while you were there it would have been a good idea to contact us or Amy and we could have either verbally explained where to park and find more parking or Amy could have physically showed you where to park the cars beyond the 4 or 5 that were in the driveway. Good luck with your next trip! I recommend a lot more communication with any future host so you and the host can have a more successful experience.

Excellent Experience!

  • 5 of 5

It was a great experience and would highly recommend it! John and Rebecca are extremely responsive and ensured that we had the best experience possible. The house is very big, clean, and was very comfortable for our large group. It is only steps to the beach, so the location is A+. The pictures and descriptions were very accurate and the house is truly great. Great hosts and a wonderful time. Thank you John and Rebecca and looking forward to visiting you again in the near future!

Close to everything the area has to offer. Easily walk the boardwalk to the casinos (a little under a mile) or BYOB restaurants of Ventnor. You are also 100 yards from the boardwalk and beach and 6 blocks to the tennis courts, basketball courts and playgrounds in Ventnor. And of course you can visit the Atlantic Resort, Trop, Ceasars or Trump casinos while dining at great restaurants like Buddakan. There is also an amusement park on the boardwalk for the kids, an aquarium,...everything you could possibly want on your vacation.
