About the property

Vintage Decor, Amenities Galore at Avon Shore!

Designed with families in mind, this century-old seashore Dutch Colonial sits a block and a half to the family-friendly beach and Avon Pavilion with its shops, restrooms and restaurant. Just a short walk to the stores and eateries on Main Street, the house has been recently redone from top to bottom combining modern convenience with vintage charm and every imaginable accommodation (see list of items included with the house below).

The first floor boasts an open floor plan with living room, dining room, newly-remodeled kitchen, full bath and bedroom. Upstairs there is a second full bath and four more bedrooms; plus the living room sleeper sofa provides extra space for your weekend guests.

After a morning run to the bakery for crullers, take a stroll on the boardwalk or a bike ride to nearby Spring Lake or Ocean Grove for lunch in an outdoor cafe. Following an afternoon on the beach swimming, sunning and searching for sea glass, enjoy a cookout on the backyard deck. In the evenings you could drive down to Atlantic City or over to Monmouth Racetrack; or stick around the neighborhood and play miniature golf, shop in factory outlets, visit a local pub or just hang out on the rocking chair front porch.

About Kathleen

As New Jersey natives, it has always been our dream to own a vacation house at the shore.

Kathleen purchased this house in 2013

Why Kathleen chose Avon-by-the-Sea

After a few summers spent searching, we finally found the perfect place close to the beach in beautiful Avon-By-The-Sea. We plan to spend our family vacations here with our children and grandchildren, and we hope that other families will enjoy it, too!

What makes this house unique

ABTS is peaceful, picturesque and close to all the Jersey Shore has to offer! 8 Beach tags included with the home!

Perfect beach house for a family of adults/kids.

  • 5 of 5

My husband, adult children, niece and her children and close friends of ours throughly enjoyed our week in Avon at this beach house. As there were so many of us, I cooked many meals in a very efficient kitchen. There is also a large gas grill on the deck which I also used during the week. It has a wonderful front porch where we spent time reading, relaxing and having before dinner drinks and appetizers. Since we only live about 50 minutes away in NJ, I spend lots of time during the summer at the Avon beach, and this house was perfect for us. I can't wait to rent it again! Kathy could not have been nicer and she even mailed me the clothes my adult child left in a drawer!

Back Again! Love this Place!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home from a week at this BEACH HAVEN home and I WANT TO GO BACK NOW! Seriously, the BEST experience! My husband, 2 1/2 year old daughter, golden retriever and I stayed here last year for a week too, and this is the most comfortable, clean, beautifully decorated, loaded with everything you need home! We chose to make every dinner at the house (top notch appliances) and used the excellent grill on the back deck. So close to the beach, you are drawn to just walk down the block, gaze in amazement and put your feet in the sand. The owners are so wonderful to rent from, and they care so much about their home and the people who are staying there. There was a little bunny in the side yard every morning on this trip. My daughter would gaze at it and the birdies through the bay window in the kitchen, while I enjoyed delicious coffee (they added a fancy coffee machine, grinder and basically a coffee bar this year, what?! Score!). Did they order the bunny to come too? Last year, there was a duck that would walk up from Sylvan Lake (basically in the back yard!) to visit. This place has charm, character, calm, and a beautiful porch to relax on. Seriously, I'm in love with this house and you will be too!

Have a great time! -Maria

Great time at the shore!

  • 5 of 5

This place was a great find! It is just over a block to a very nice beach and boardwalk with lifeguards steps away, and there's all sorts of stuff to do nearby for a variety of ages and interests. The house itself is on a nice size lot with room to play, there's a wonderful enclosed deck area with a grill and umbrella, and there's a full outdoor shower for those times when you're coming straight off the beach. The interior is charming yet modern (antiques and folk art throughout, but also fast wifi and Roku boxes) and is wonderfully appointed. One of the best features is that it easily slept our whole crew--6 adults and 6 kids! I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a family getaway or some beach time with friends and relatives!

Best Find EVER!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing! I highly recommend staying here. First off, I had no prior relationship with these owners, I was just searching for a beach house in Avon on VRBO, probably like you. My husband, daughter 1 1/2 year old, golden retriever, and I felt so comfortable here. The house has a gorgeous porch, deck, grassy side yard, which made spending time outside with ocean breezes so enjoyable. The house itself, is phenomenal. The classy beach décor transports you into a calm state, immediately upon arrival. Everything is provided for you, so you can just unpack your clothes, get some food in the fridge and be on vacation. The owners/family are the nicest people, who care greatly for the home and the guests that rent it. They even left some great toys for our little girl to play with. They have bikes there to use, and we took great rides on the boardwalk and around the neighborhood of "I want that house" homes. For the little ones, they have a beautiful crib, tricycles, toys, wagons, safety gates, high chair, and booster seats. For the pups, they have a fenced in grass area, dog gates for the porch and deck, and tennis balls to throw.

The beds are great, rooms beautifully decorated and SUPER clean, (I swear It was immaculate). They use Mrs. Meyers Clean Day products and I'm going out to buy some for myself this week, the house smells so fresh! It is a large home, which for us, being a small family, was much more room than we needed. However, I'm already trying to plan when to return with more family members or friends, as all of the rooms are gorgeous, and the house really accommodates a lot of people. We did have some family and friends visit during our stay, and everyone was floored by the beauty of the house and the high end finishes. I fully pretended we lived there, and will be honest, felt so proud of my finding this gem on the shore. You literally can see the water from the front yard!!

Anyone who isn't familiar with Avon by the Sea, it is by far, the most beautiful and serene beaches on the Jersey shore. It's proximity to neighboring beach towns, great restaurants and shopping make its location ideal. So this is the place to be.

This is the perfect beach house with every accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this beautiful home for a week with our three pups. The owners went above and beyond to accommodate us in every way. The house is beautiful and comes with every imaginable convenience. We had guests down for a day trip as well as for overnights. They were all not only comfortable but impressed with all that was provided to make our stay effortless. Everything from all bath, kitchen and shower needs - to beach chairs, beach towels, umbrellas, bikes and boogie boards. That made packing so much less stressful and the quality of the items supplied was outstanding. The home itself is beautifully renovated and decorated. The owners thought of every detail and also provided many more items to make us feel at home. We highly recommend this beach house and the 1 block walk to the beach is a dream come true. We have stayed in Avon previously and this by far was the best beach house and location. It felt like home and the owners treated us like family.

The BEST vacation ever! What a gorgeous house with SO much to offer!!

  • 5 of 5

No doubt this is one of the best vacations we have ever had. This charming house is so beautifully decorated, loaded with anything and everything you could possibly need - every detail has been thought of. From the top quality beds to sheets and every supply you would need (other than your own food, of course), this far surpasses any rental we have ever been to. A block to one of the nicest beaches with live music almost nightly. A short walk in to town (and a quick drive to anywhere, so close to shopping and wonderful restaurants). AAAAAAAAAA+++++++++++
