About the property

Beautiful 3 bedroom/3 bath home filled with character and charm!

This charming two story single family home, located on the narrowest part of the island, is only steps from both beach and bay. This Avalon gem is not your run-of-the-mill shore rental. Owned by the family who designed and built it, it is furnished with many beautiful and original pieces. The main floor includes a large, bright and airy open living area, spacious dining room with a gorgeous glass wall separating it from the front entrance/foyer, and a brand new eat-in-kitchen that boasts new appliances, granite counter-tops, pine cabinetry, and tile floors. Two bedrooms, two full baths, a laundry room, and separate pantry round out the first floor. Bedrooms have wall to wall carpeting, while the living and dining room flooring is hardwoods and orientals.

Our second floor houses an additional bedroom and full bath. There is yet another separate living area on this floor that contains a comfortable sleeper-sofa, loaded bookshelves, and even a baby grand piano! New paint, and carpeting, Central airconditioning, cathedral ceilings, ceiling fans, two large flat-screen TVs with cable, wireless Internet, a large soaking tub, and many other original touches provide families with all of the amenities needed to make their vacation dreams come true.

Our home is built on 1 ½ lots which allows families to enjoy a nice sized, sunny, fenced-in back/side yard with side deck and gas grill. A spacious enclosed outdoor shower is an added plus! Our street is only one block long and has a public beach access path, as well as, Avalon’s kayak park and public dock. Location, location, location!! Ours is a residential neighborhood where family fun is encouraged, but group rentals are discouraged. If loud and late is your idea of a good time, you will want to look elsewhere in town for your vacation rental. We look for renters who will treat our home as if it is their own. Flexible arrival and departure days are possible.

Avalon is a wonderful seashore community that combines great beaches, shopping, and restaurants, and easy access to the excitement of the Wildwood boardwalk, the Atlantic City casinos, and historic Cape May. Book your dream vacation today!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved your house! I've been coming to Avalon since I was little and I've never been so close to the beach and bay at the same time! What gets better than that!? It was a wonderful week- Hopefully we'll be back soon!

Beyond Words

  • 5 of 5

Great 57th street access to the beach, <2min on a bike...5-7min walk. You could throw a stone to the bay, where there is a swim platform & at the end of the day if you couldn't swim in the ocean, its high tide on the bay, nice clean water. 10-15 min bike ride to the middle of town. We used a quarter tank of gas the entire week and the only reason we used that much gas was because we went down to Cape May to eat at the Lobster House, which was an experience within itself. Went down to 12th street -- the surf beach, tons of parking nice groomed beach. Perfect waves.

The house has everything, great water pressure, central air, big kitchen, extremely thoughtful layout, great outdoor space/shower, and it is really meticulously kept -- I cant emphasize that enough. All the neighbors were friendly, we even got a big thumbs up, when my brother was wearing his "Make America Great Again" hat! Many thanks & all the best, Andrew

Would come back to Avalon and rent again for the house itself, the location and the owners

  • 5 of 5

The house is quaint, in pristine condition and very clean, not as pretentious as most of the mansions you'll find in Avalon. It was more than enough for 6 people, perfect for a family with accompanying grand-parents as there is a suite-like setup on the second floor with a master bedroom, ensuite full bathroom and a large adjacent living area away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the house.

Location is amazing, on the shorter blocks of the 7-mile Island, a short walk to the uncrowded pristine beach next to the protected dune area, also a short walk to the inlet area for kayaking, fishing and bird watching.

The owners were very responsive and accommodating, we had the opportunity to meet them when checking-in, they were very pleasant and share their passion for their home, Avalon and insights on how to get the best out of stay.

The house was perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our stay in Avalon very much. The house was great for us, plenty of room for family of five. Location to beach is great with beach access at the end street. The house is situated between Avalon and Stone Harbor so it was an easy bike ride to get to either town center. We would definitely stay in this house again.

We thoroughly enjoyed the home and is was just right for our family.

  • 5 of 5

The house felt more like a home than a summer rental. Usually one is lucky to have a few pots and pans and some dishes, but this home was tremendously furnished. We really enjoyed it.
