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 table for 10 off the kitchen - great for outdoor dining and get-together. There is also a large deck on the 3rd 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 2nd 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 1st 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 2nd 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. Personally, we often use the downstairs kitchen to prep holiday meals with the children while the upstairs is used by the staff to complete them. Only pluses to this special space!!

The 3rd 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 a large whirlpool tub as well as an infinity shower and double vanity. The 3rd floor also has a second bedroom with a luxurious pullout (queen bed) and television as well as access to the 3rd floor deck. Great room for lounging while still easily converted into comfortable sleeping arrangements. 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 4th floor has 3 bedrooms all with double beds and 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. Want to enjoy music while someone else watches the game? The home is wired with a special multi-zoned sound delivery system that allows you to control what you hear where and at what level. This system easily connects to your iPhone or other mobile device so you can play the music you like, listen to the game on the deck, or immerse yourself in a movie.

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, etc.

A $500 refundable security deposit is required at the time of booking.

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 Greater Atlantic City Region

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.

The Big 4-0

  • 5 of 5

The old gang from our hometown all turned 40 this year. Most of us live in the NYC area, so we decided to stay at this house in AC to meet up and celebrate. We left wives and kids behind, and thoroughly enjoyed everything about it! The house was only a block away from the beach, and staying slightly off-season allowed us lots of time to hang out on the beach, play games, and reminisce about old times. We were able to go out to dinner in town one night, and barbeque at the house the other. The inside of the house was extremely nice and spacious. We watched some old videos on one of the many HD TVs. There were enough beds to accommodate the guys (who feel that they're too old to crash on air mattresses anymore!)! We were able to sit out on the overlook as the sun went down and as we prepared for the night out on the town. I also thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub that the master bedroom had. We enjoyed the house so much that there are already plans in the works to do it again soon at the same location. If you are travelling with a fairly big party and want a house that feels like a getaway at the beach, yet close enough to "do AC", this is the place for you!

Perfect For Us

  • 5 of 5

We are eight older men who have been going to Ocean City, Md., for many years to play golf and were looking for a change. We decided to try Atlantic City and settled on the Murphy house because of size and location. This is an older house in a stable neighborhood which has been modernized in every way and was clean and ready for guests. Being near the beach meant nothing to us but that is where the nicer places are located. We always enjoyed Ocean City but after golf there is absolutely nothing to do. Here, we were able to go to a casino for a couple of hours and then go to a nice restaurant (Knife & Fork and Dock's were excellent). We're not sure where we'll go next year but the Murphy house will be right at the top of the list.

(I might mention that while searching I was attracted by the relative starkness of this house as depicted in the photos. So many of the properties appear "junked up" by excessive artwork, figurines, personal stuff and way too many of those useless pillows on the beds that you have to find a place for (the floor?) to be able to go to bed!)

Nursing school reunion

  • 5 of 5

Just had a wonderful stay here with friends. Most of us hadn`t seen each other for at least 40 years, so choosing a place where private space and together space were both plentiful presented a unique challenge. We needed easy access for those with mobility issues and one that would also accept the presence of a service dog needed by one person in our group This home was easy to find and the owners were very easy to contact and work with. We couldn`t have chosen a better location for our reunion and were all very pleased with this spacious, clean ,modernized home

From the moment I booked until the time we checked out, the Murphy's were polite, informative and very responsive. The pictures are true. The home is beautiful, well stocked, very clean, quick walk to the beach...and in a great location!! I would recommend this home to any family or group visiting the AC area. Thank you Rebecca for your service.

Wonderful !

  • 5 of 5

101 South Kingston in Atlantic City is a superb property to rent and exceeded all expectations! I have been in the travel industry for the past 38 years and was the International Travel and Event Coordinator for 4 Governor's of Ohio. So after staying in many hotels and properties my standards are high. This house is AWESOME! The Murphy's take much pride of making sure their beautiful 8 bedroom home is kept in mint condition. This was the highlight of our year! We are a family of 16 and the large dining room was the focus of our daily meals. The kitchen is a gourmet dream and fully equipped. Each bedroom is well appointed and bathrooms are very modern. The location is perfect for walking on the boardwalk to riding our bikes. Extremely clean. Great air conditioning, beach chairs, bikes and outside shower just to name a few items that make a beach vacation excellent. The Murphy's are also very responsive and do not lack in urgency if something needs to be fixed. Best owners ever! We booked for next year and hope to return year after year! They mark the bar high and deserve kudos! With great appreciation, The Altman Family

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.
