Owner info

Year Purchased: 1965

About the owner: Seafoam has been in our family for four generations. My wife's grandparents bough the house in the 1960's. I have been coming here since 1999. We have been renting since 1994. We joined VRBO in 2013. We respond quickly to email requests about dates and to answer questions about the house.

Why the Owner Chose Harvey Cedars, NJ, USA:
This property is the perfect spot for a quiet family beach vacation. I have enjoyed watching my children playing in the sand and swimming in the ocean. Many cherished family memories have been made at Sea Foam. We are four blocks from town. About 2/10 of a mile from town, easy walk to restaurants, liquor store, shopping, convenient store, town hall, ice cream parlor. The bay beach, perfect for children who can’t swim or are not big enough for the ocean is a half of mile away.The house sleeps 7. Upstairs there are three bedrooms with two twin beds in each. Rooms are cozy and each has an AC and ceiling fan. Downstairs there is a single twin bed off the kitchen with an attached half bath. In addition to the seven beds in bedrooms, there is what we call the sleeping porch. It is not a bedroom, but does have a day bed where someone could sleep. The cottage has a separate entrance, living room, dinning area and kitchen with AC. There are two bedrooms upstairs. The first bedroom has two twin beds with AC. The second bedroom at the top of the stairs has a trundle bed. Two adults can fit, but space is tight, it is better suited for kids, no AC in this bedroom.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
While in a quiet neighborhood, our location offers the proximity to many activities families can enjoy: bay beach, mini golf, fishing charters, amusement park, playgrounds, shopping, golf, etc.The house is a 1920’s cedar shake bungalow recognized by the Long Beach Island Historic Preservation Committee as a Historical Site. We are the 4th house from the beach on the ocean side of the boulevard. The bay is a short walk to the end of street. There are six beach badges included. Wifi is through Comcast. Two outdoor showers, two indoor bath tubs, but no indoor shower. There is a Dishwasher, Washer/dryer, Two clotheslines, Propane grill and charcoal grill. We provide propane, but not charcoal. There is parking for 6 cars
