About Mollie & Jack Van Horne

We bought this house a few months after we were married. We had spent a few summers in Bay Head and jumped at the chance of owning a home there. Our five children, now all grown (18 + ) cherish it as much as we do. They come as much as possible as it is an easy rail commute from NYC. We live 80 miles north during the year and the beach house is an easy commute.

Mollie & Jack Van Horne purchased this house in 1985

Why Mollie & Jack Van Horne chose Bay Head

Simple beach leaving, great location. Comfy but roomy enough for a large family. Great outdoor spaces - the deck is like another family room.

What makes this house unique

Convenient to NYC and north Jersey by car or train.

This beach house is bigger than it looks! It has something for everybody ... We had three generations and a dog for a week and the memories we created were unforgettable! We cooked lots, we celebrated

(Two bdays), we gathered (family reunion) we took pictures, walked to the beach at least twice a day ... Early morning coffee on the multi level deck were a great start to the day ... We threw the frisbee in the fenced back yard ... Enjoyed the AC and all the lovely ceiling fans ... Read the newspaper on the front porch then comfortably napped. Everyone had privacy as well as great places to come together. The outdoor shower is always a highlight and didn't disappoint ... The owners are easy to reach and quick to respond and have great leave behind info about local favorites. What a lovely beach house that suits generations of family and four legged friends. We will be back!

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Couldn't have asked for more. It's a short, 5-min walk to the beach. We spent most of our time on the back deck, which has 2 outdoor tables and an awning. Yard is completely fenced in, so our dog could be off-leash. Central A/C, with 2 bedrooms downstairs and 2 upstairs (the upstairs bedrooms have bunkbeds).

House was nicely decorated and the downstairs was clearly recently renovated. Lots of great things nearby--Point Pleasant boardwalk for the kids, Lenny's market for great burgers and steaks, restaurants off Arnold Ave in Point Pleasant.

Great house for families

  • 5 of 5

Adorable, cozy house equipped with everything you would need for a perfect beach vacation. Everyone in our family (including the family dog!) loved this well-decorated and comfortable home. Central air-conditioning, outdoor shower, two-level deck with awning and comfortable furniture outfitted with sunbrella cushions, fenced-in yard, spotless bathrooms and new stainless steel appliances, and stocked kitchen were just a few of the highlights. The basketball goal and firepit were a hit with kids and adults alike. Just a 5-minute walk to the beach, and convenient to everything in Bayhead. Most importantly, the hosts were incredibly kind and responsive, even replacing a toaster within 24 hours of our mentioning that it didn't work. Definitely recommend this property!
