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!

A Slice of Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't wait for summer to arrive to have a girls getaway by the sea with two of my best friends. This home and property fit the bill perfectly! Each of us had our own bedrooms and bathrooms providing privacy when needed, yet there were plenty of indoor and outdoor shared spaces where we could hang out together, laugh, and just relax. The house and its furnishing have so much character. You feel at home as soon as you arrive. Both the beach and bay are only a half block away, in either direction, offering the perfect location on this beautiful island. It truely is a slice of Heaven on Earth for this girl who grew up by the sea, but who now lives in the desert! I'll definitely be booking another stay at this property next year!

Sweet and Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this charming little house. It was the perfect place, with plenty of space for our small group.

A short walk to the beach and the bay where magnificent sunsets were viewed nightly, this quiet block was the ideal location.

The living space is easy, kitchen is well appointed, and the bedrooms provide a wonderful night's rest. All parts create a relaxing, no

fuss, wonderful vacation in beautiful Avalon. We'd rent it again in a heartbeat!!

Great Winter Get-Away!

  • 5 of 5

We are a military family of four who recently spent some time at the Jersey Shore while transitioning from down South to New England. We had originally planned to stay in a hotel, but changed our minds at the last minute and instead chose to rent this spacious and comfortable home in Avalon. We were so happy with our decision! After living in a small condo for the past few months, we were at last able to spread out and relax for a bit before resuming our travels. The beds were SO comfortable- we all slept in each morning much later than we are normally accustomed to. Our children are home schooled, and the large knotty-pine farm table with benches in the dining room was the perfect setting for their daily lessons. While usually leaning towards more modern furnishings, we found this home to be a wonderful blend of both old and new...vintage tile in a bathroom paired nicely with a modern design shower curtain...original tile in the kitchen worked beautifully with modern appointments such as granite countertops and stainless steel gas stove. We were so happy with our time spent at this property that we hope to stay again in the spring when we head back down south again!

Perfect breezy beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

Bright, cool, and roomy--just a block to a beautiful, quiet beach. Wonderfully furnished and comfortable. Well appointed high-end kitchen. We loved the shady deck in the afternoons. Could not have had a better week.

Summer fun on 57th Street in Avalon

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time in Avalon and enjoyed the house. Location was great as beach and bay access were a quick 5 minute walk. House offers everything you need for a family of 5 with all the comforts of home. Will definitely be coming back next summer!

Lovely vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed staying at this house. The house has character and charm. We loved the piano, nice kitchen, deck, and a perfect view of the sunset every night. The short walk to the beach through a bird sanctuary was so pleasant. The beach was never crowded and has a lifeguard on duty on 57th street. The owners were very helpful in planning our arrival. We highly recommend this house for a small family or friends reunion.
