About Bill

Our family has been coming to Bay Head since the 1920's. We love Bay Head's natural beauty and its charming small town feel. Families like our's return year after year to enjoy its beaches, tennis courts, crabbing in the channel, and sailing in the bay.

Why Bill chose Shore Region

This home is a short walk from the guarded Bridge Ave beach and is close to the amenities of the downtown - near Mueller's bakery, and close to the playground, the channel, and the municipal tennis courts.

We are within walking distance to the train station (1/2 mile) with NJ Transit service to New York's Penn Station which makes it ideal for an escape from the city.

Convenient by car via the GS Parkway (exit 98) or the NJ Turnpike (exit 7A) you can get to Bay Head from just about anywhere!

Boardwalks with amusements for children of all ages are available in Pt Pleasant immediately north of Bay Head or Seaside Heights 10 miles south of Bay Head.

Simply Amazing and Totally Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here at the beginning of August 2016. First time for us in this house, 21st summer in Bay Head. It was perfect. House is clean, spacious, beautiful and comfortable! Amenities were great.... Outdoor shower, clean BBQ, kitchen utensils, cable/wifi, etc.

Location is ideal. We hardly ever got in the car!!! Huge for a mom of 3 who is constantly in the car shuttling them! Kids would go crabbing whenever they wanted and we could drink our coffee/wine from the deck and watch them!!!! We could pop across the street to the bakery in the morning or Dune Cafe for ice cream. Run down the street to the cheese shop for cocktail hour provisions. Farmers Market was an added treat. I could go on and on.

Beach is a super close walk. Beach is amazing.

Bill and Allison are awesome landlords. Nicest people.

Looking forward to 2017 already!!!!

Spacious, airy, great location

  • 5 of 5

2 families (including 4 teen age girls) had a great week at the beach! The house is spacious, clean, well appointed and in a great location (right in town and 2 Blocks to beach). Bay Head is a lovely community and has been our destination for 13 summers. This is our second summer at this house and our favorite one (it has the best porch is town!!). We hope to be back Again.

Another Fantastic Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Just back from our second (six adults, two children) family Bay Head vacation in this terrific rental. Only two short blocks to the beach, this Bay Header is perfect for families! Cleanliness, large front porch and air conditioning were on our "must have" list and this place delivered! Immaculate and replete with amenities including master suite, updated kitchen, large living room with flat screen TV, two porches, large outdoor shower, and grill. Large open floor plan, but many areas for individual quiet time. Bakery and ice cream shop is across the street. The adjacent canal is perfect for crabbing, and tennis courts are nearby.

A great week with the family in Bay Head, NJ

  • 5 of 5

This house is great!!! An old, classic Bay Head beach house, completely renovated to perfection by today's high-end standards! The owner lives nearby and is very pleasant and accomodating to work with. The house is spacious, very well furnished and impecable. Great outdoor shower! Great wrap around proch for people watching and apres beach drinks or morning coffee. Adjacent to a small park along the canal which is a hot spot for crabbing. Only two short blocks to the beach. The house is perfect for families with small or grown-up children. The famous Muellers Bakery is a few doors down across the street. Directly across the street is the Swan Cafe that serves a great breakfast and lunch (until 3:00PM). Better yet, they have a great ice cream shop that serves until 10:00 PM). Only 5 minutes to Point Pleasant Boardwalk and amusement park. Only very mildly negative comment is that the beach chairs provided are not size appropriate for adults - perfect for children though. Suggest that you bring your own beach chairs. I very highly recommend this home as a perfect beach home away from home! We were 9 adults and found it to be very comfortable.
