About the property

6 BR / 3 BA Family Beach House. Sleeps 12. with Private Salt Water Pool


Located in the most desirable area of Asbury Park and a short distance to the boardwalk, ocean, downtown shops, concert venues, and all that Asbury Park has to offer.

This beautiful and exquisite home offers a private, relaxing and warm atmosphere perfect for an extended family get-away vacation or long term home away from home – you won’t find a better house with unique character and charm that is this large and near the beach!!! The front wrap around porch offers spectacular all-day sun, perfect for lazy afternoons and ideal for sharing a glass of wine with friends and family at sunset. Landscaped back yard with brand new in-ground private salt-water pool and outdoor shower. Together with a private deck, the back yard is perfect for a quaint backyard gathering along with a dining table that can seat over 8 people and a tank-less gas grill ready for a grill master.

The interior design presents an eclectic mix of modern and old from the pages of Elle Décor or Dwell. The rooms are all generously oversized with comfy furniture providing ample seating for group conversations, dinner parties, family game night – or all of the above!

There is an updated, full bathroom with shower and tub on the second floor along with four beautifully decorated bedrooms (two with king sized beds, two with a queen size bed). Two additional bedrooms are on the third floor, both include a twin and queen bed in each bedroom and a full bathroom on the third floor. The home is fully equipped with linens and towels – including beach towels for everyone’s use.

Amenities include: 2 washers and dryers, central air, gas grill, dining room seating 6 plus, linens, towels, a chef’s kitchen and quirky personality that come along with an historic charm – like the infamous “door to nowhere.”

Local favorites that are close by are Porta (converted warehouse pizza and cocktail venue), Taka (newly built upscale sushi restaurant and bar) and Frank’s Deli (perfect for subs to take to the beach). But you can’t miss Sunset Landing Luncheonette - a surfer’s shack one block away from the house for yummy breakfast and lunch!

Experience Asbury Park’s renaissance! Check the websites for the boardwalk, downtown and stone pony for events, concerts and restaurant information.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What an amazing house in an absolutely beautiful neighborhood of Asbury Park, NJ. We are a group of six teachers who needed a place to stay so that we could lay to rest a Brother of ours who passed away. We felt completely welcomed and at home. We were able to prepare a meal using the stunning kitchen. We all had comfortable beds in our own rooms which were uniquely decorated. We were greeted by Richard who was kind and welcoming and obviously takes great pride and the care of his home. We were off season, I can only imagine how amazing this place must be during the summer season.

Best Summer House!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing! This house has it all! My family spent a week here and it was great. We had a wonderful time. The house is clean, comfortable, stylish, and lots of room for everyone, and has every amenity you can think of. The location is perfect, close to everything and in a nice quiet neighborhood.

Thank you Christine for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home, we made some great memories! We hope to be able to return again next summer!

Amazingly comfortable house!

  • 5 of 5

Great old house wonderfully updated with all the comforts! We loved the front porch for morning coffee and the backyard and crystal clear pool for evening get togethers. Lots of bedrooms upstairs with comfy beds and an open floor plan downstairs with room for everyone. Plus, beach chairs, towels and umbrellas provided. Bikes, too! A little too far to walk to the beach from this house but who wants to walk with all the gear you need on the beach? We just loaded up the car and then used the parking app to easily pay for parking.

We loved the place and would definitely stay here again!

Loved our Asbury home & week July 2017

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from this gorgeous house. Excellent service in every way. Christina (owner) has exceeded my expectations with the extra touches throughout the house. Our extended family came in for a wedding in Spring Lake. This house was perfect. Large bedrooms, Plenty of space for privacy, First floor living space has plenty of seating, indoor games, and artsy furnishings. We all loved the decorating throughout the house.

We had great weather so used the heated pool everyday & had all meals on the back patio.

The bikes were always being used by someone, and we loved that they were provided. Perfect way to get around !

It was a treat for all of us to enjoy the atmosphere of this beautifully restored house and amenities.

And everyone loved Asbury Park... best fireworks any of us had seen outside NYC... great parade in Ocean Grove..really really great trendy food both on the boardwalk & restaurants...the ocean hit 70 degrees and beach was great.. much less crowded by 7th avenue side..

Great weather, great house, great vacation...

Thanks Christina for providing excellent service in all regards .

Owner's Response: Phyllis you and your family were a pleasure to communicate with and have as our guests. Thank you for the glowing report on our home and what we provided for you and your family. I worked hard to ensure you would have everything you needed while being away from home. I hope your furry friend enjoyed his vacation too. I look forward to some wedding photos from your wedding weekend. Thank you again for taking such great care of our home. Christina and Family

Dream Shore Home

  • 5 of 5

We were so fortunate to have found this home for our trip to Asbury Park this summer. This 3-story home has been updated in the most tasteful of ways and welcomes everyone as soon as they approach the home. Its wrap-around porch is perfect for gathering family & catching up, the main floor has copious amounts of entertaining space and a kitchen to help you prepare the most extravagant meals. Every bedroom is spacious and beyond comfortable. Central AC and a fabulous backyard with pool make this the ultimate destination in Asbury Park. We truly did not want to leave after our stay. A perfect home for your shore getaway.

Everything You Need for Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My extended family was immediately at home in this large, inviting home.

Morning coffee and evening cocktails on the beautiful and breezy porch. The rest of the day spent around the beautiful new pool and the evening meal on the back deck.

We enjoyed the house so much we rarely left it, but for fireworks on the beech and two meals in the terrific new restaurants on Cookman Ave and environs.

Evenings would find us enjoying a movie in the living was the perfect choice for us.

We found the description and pictures here to be accurate and Richard was available for any questions by phone and even visited once.

We hope to do it again soon and highly recommend 1119!
