Overview

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.

Excellent Accommodations! Highly Recommend!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home, mid-block from the Boardwalk in a quiet neighborhood. What a pleasure it was to get up in the morning and enjoy a cup of coffee on the second floor proch while listening to the ocean. The home is large and spacious and well-kept and very clean with all needed amenities provided.

While some of the beds seemed older and were less comfortable, this would not be enough reason to not select this home. Parking was a juggle because we were a large group with extra cars and in/out quite frequently. The home comes with three parking passes. There is minimal parking on the street for those cars without impact to the other homes. Still, if you are traveling as a large group, rather than multiple small ones, this will not be a problem. Finding parking within a block radius was usually easy to do.

The homeowners were easy to reach with questions and very kind. Booking was easy. The price was reasonable and the home well worth the cost. Check in and out was simple. A full grocery is located less than 3 miles away. Many small restaurants are within an easy walk. I would highly recommend this home!

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

The house is very spacious and well maintained. It was extremely convenient to have the linens provided, as well as toilet paper and the trash bags. The kitchen was well furnished with utensils, dishes and small appliances. It is such a pain to have to carry all that stuff on vacation.

Perfect house for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house with a group of 14 guys, and we were very comfortable in the house. There were 8 bedrooms with a single bed and it is easy to put 2 in a room. Great for large groups. Living room was large as well and the house has a great porch in the front and back.

Rebecca was great to work with and provided all the information we needed for the stay. The house is about 5 minutes from Tropicana and right near the Boardwalk in AC. It is steps from the beach and it is easy to walk back and forth all day. I highly recommend this house!
