About the property

8 Bedrooms, 4.5 Bathrooms

This is the newest home of three we own on South Kingston Avenue's Ocean-block area of Atlantic City! You can see the others here - VRBO Listing #496521 and here - VRBO Listing #572459.

This home is a cozy and comfortable ocean-block eight bedroom house in the upscale and desirable Lower Chelsea District of Atlantic City.

Walk just 50 yards to the boardwalk and lifeguard-monitored and free beaches of Atlantic City. Enjoy a southerly stroll on the boardwalk to the restaurants and parks and recreational facilities in Ventnor. Or head north up the boardwalk and in 0.9 miles you'll reach the Trop, the first of the casinos located on the historic boardwalk area.

You can also head to the marina, just 2 blocks away to enjoy fishing, boating, jet skis and other marina activities.

Atlantic City offers a vacation like no other place in the world.

The home itself has an upper rear deck right off the kitchen with a grill and table for outdoor dining and get-togethers. There is also a rear yard area which is great for relaxing after a beach trip or for laying out on those days it's a little too cool for the beach. And, there is also a front open porch with beach and ocean views.

The inside has over 4000 sq. ft of living space. There is a large living room, a newer kitchen with a bar island area with seating for 3 and a dining area with seating for 10. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops as well as a cozy breakfast nook with wonderful evening light that seats 4.

The 2nd floor has 3 bedrooms. One master bedroom has a sitting area, a king bed and newly renovated marble master bath. There is also a second bath for the king and double bedrooms on this floor.

The 3rd floor has 3 bedrooms and another bathroom. There are two kings and a queen on the third floor and one of the kings rooms also has a futon sofa.

The ground floor has two bedrooms (queen and double) and a bath that will be remodeled by 2016.

The entire home is WI-Fi enabled so you can catch-up on emails quickly or look for restaurants or events nearby on the web. A security system and three flat screen HD televisions are also included in the home's special features.

All the bedrooms and sleeping accommodations come with linens that are freshly cleaned before every stay.

We provide three on-street parking passes and, as a courtesy to our neighbors, require guests not use them on the ocean block of S Kingston. The ocean block parking of S Kingston is reserved for permanent residents and unloading only.

Area information: famous for its boardwalk, casino gambling, beaches, shopping centers, view of the Atlantic Ocean, and as the inspiration for the board game Monopoly, Atlantic City is a resort community located on Absecon Island on the Atlantic coast of North America.

Some of the nearby casinos include The Tropicana, Caesars, The Borgata, Harrahs, and the Golden Nugget.

With quick and safe (no streets for the kids to cross) access to the beach, its proximity to the boardwalk, casinos, parks, tennis, restaurants and the marina; this is quite simply the best vacation spot you'll find for a family summer vacation, a weekend with friends or any other group event that brings you to the New Jersey shore area.

About John Murphy

We live in New Jersey, have 5 children and enjoy spending time with our family and friends.

John Murphy purchased this house in 2015

Why John Murphy chose Greater Atlantic City Region

We love visiting Atlantic City and all it has to offer. This home is cozy and quaint and reminds us of the beach trips we made in our childhood. Very comfortable and easy to live in.

What makes this house unique

The Ocean views and 'pub room' are what we love most about the home. We love eating out and visiting the beach while we're there, but our time together is our most valued time. This home is perfect for a family or group of friends to get-together and spend time with one another while also taking in all that the area has to offer.

Highly Recommend Staying Here

  • 5 of 5

John and Rebecca were amazing to work with. I never actually met them but they communicated very well between email and text messaging. Have one very minor issue but they were able to resolve it literally within minutes. The house was very spacious for a bachelor party with 14 guys. There is ample amount of sleeping and partying space. Only issue I had if you even want to call it one is they don't advertise a fee for a single night stay. Once I contact them with my interest in staying they were up front right away with that fee. Thank you John and Rebecca and if I come back to Atlantic City I'll be looking to see if this place is available first.

The best Christmas ever!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent Christmas at this beautiful house. The home was spacious for the kids to have fun playing with each other. The owner was extremely decent, I would definitely come back again in the summer time to enjoy the beach that's right next to the house

Fantastic house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with a large group and everyone loved it. The proximity to the boardwalk, beach and casinos was a huge plus. The rooms are large and are as depicted on the website. The owners are very nice were available to answer my questions leading up to my stay. I would stay here again without any hesitation.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to NJ shore for over 40 years as a family! This was a new house for us, it was accommodating, clean, great location and well equipped with all essentials. Everyone in our party (ages 1-70) enjoyed themselves. You could walk anywhere, too. Definitely will return!

Close to everything the area has to offer. Easily walk the boardwalk to the casinos (a little under a mile) or BYOB restaurants of Ventnor. You are also 100 yards from the boardwalk and beach and 6 blocks to the tennis courts, basketball courts and playgrounds in Ventnor. And of course you can visit the Atlantic Resort, Trop, Ceasars or Trump casinos while dining at great restaurants like Buddakan. There is also an amusement park on the boardwalk for the kids, an aquarium,...everything you could possibly want on your vacation.
