About the property

3 bdrms/2 baths upstairs apt; full deck faces ocean; sleeps 8; beach block, AC

This sun filled apartment is brand new following reconstruction after Superstorm Sandy. Our kitchen has new cabinets; there is ultra plush carpeting in all bedrooms, laminate flooring in hallway and kitchen, plus ceramic tile in the two baths. When you arrive, you are welcome to pull into the driveway and unload your belongings right outside your entrance. One flight up and you have a delightful respite from the hectic norm. Three bedrooms, two full baths, an eat-in kitchen and a large deck with table, chairs, and lounges that face the ocean will greet you and instantly give you a sense of tranquility. Day or night you can get out and have fun or simply sit home and chill. In fact our central air is perfect in helping you do just that. There are also ceiling fans in all 3 bedrooms as well as the living room. Can't wait to wash the salt and sand off your skin? Our outdoor shower will be most helpful to rid you of all that. We have a laundry room with washer and dryer; a dishwasher, two HD/TVs, a gas grill, plenty of storage space, and an optional cleaning service for when you depart. We feel we have left nothing to chance and can assure you of a delightful living experience when you vacation with us.

About Linda C. Shanahan

The Shanahans are thrilled to have totally recovered from Superstorm Sandy and that after 29 long and very tedious months, we are back in our home. My husband and I are married 42 years, retired, and have three grown children. Our year round home is in Union, NJ where the kids all went to the public schools and then onto Rutgers University. Our daughters now own homes in Clark but the youngest still lives full time with us during the summer months as she is a server at a close by restaurant. All of us love the Jersey Shore and spend as much time as possible at the beach as jobs and responsibilities will allow. We love company and have made many memories of great times with friends and extended family at this house. The kids were only in high school and college when we bought, so there have been lots of parties, sleepovers, and celebrations to be had. Now that we are back in our beloved summer home, we look forward to lots more.

We are friendly and hospitable but not intrusive. We will do anything within reason to make your vacation a total success.This is your vacation, and if all you want is privacy and relaxation, that is exactly what you will get.

Linda C. Shanahan purchased this apartment in 1999

Why Linda C. Shanahan chose Ortley Beach

As a family vacation, we rented for better than 20 years in Lavallette, the beach town just north of Ortley Beach. We thought that Lavallette was the best. When buying, we didn't want to look anywhere else. Thank God, our realtor insisted we look at 19 Eighth Ave. Ortley Beach. We fell in love with the property and location. That summer we fell equally in love with the beach and the freedom it gave to the beach goers as opposed to the restrictions of Lavallette. You can eat on our beach (we even have local businesses that deliver lunch, snacks, drinks right up there), play ball, dig holes, fly kites and no one bothers you or your kids. Our house is right down the block from the beach, so your bathroom is close by. But clean, air-conditioned bathrooms are also located even closer on the boardwalk. Kids forget their favorite boogey board or need a little break? No problem. As we are beach block, there is no highway to cross and they can return home for whatever, and you can feel safe that all is well. There is little if any crime in the area. Bikes remain out in backyards, blankets, chairs, books, umbrellas are left on the beach while you go home for any reason. No problem. Seaside Heights is about a half mile south of us and offers restaurants, rides, arcades, a water park, pubs, etc. if you seek such excitement. Lavallette has great little shops for your shopping pleasure. A&P superstore is right down the road on Rt. 35 south. We pretty much have it all right here or close by.

What makes this apartment unique

We loved our original home with its free flowing floor plan and our sun filled sunroom that faced up to the beach. Now with a new architectural plan, we built an even bigger home with even more windows to allow the sun to warm our souls as well as our bodies. We raised the house to local specifications, and as a result, you can clearly see the ocean from the upstairs deck. Sunrise is an awesome sight! We now have a beautiful deck on both floors and are still left with a backyard for games and garden. Trust me, you will not be disappointed if you decide to stay at the Club.

Perfect location and perfect accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed renting this home for the weekend while our kids competed at Ocean County YMCA. It was the perfect location and had everything we needed. The view from the deck is wonderful! Linda was so responsive and so pleasant. If we are back in the Ortley Beach area or even returning to OCY, we will definitely rent again!

Very Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time during our stay at the apartment in Ortley Beach. The apartment was very comfortable, well-equipped, and nicely furnished.

Having the master bedroom and bathroom slightly separated from the other bedrooms and the other bathroom was especially great for our family. This gave a degree of privacy between the grandparents and the rest of the family.

The deck on the second floor offered a view of the ocean and a very comfortable outdoor space for dining and relaxing.

The short walk to the beach was very convenient and made it easy to return home if needed.

Linda and Rich were very nice and eager to help while giving us plenty of privacy.

We certainly plan on returning again for our next trip to the Jersey shore.

Friendly, accommodating owners, great location, beautiful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent the Fourth of July week at Club Shanahan. The apartment very comfortable and extremely clean. Great layout with master bedroom/bath on one side of the apartment and 2 additional bedrooms and a bath on the other. Nice, open kitchen and living room that opened up to a large deck with an ocean view. Beach block location also a plus! Linda and Rich were wonderful hosts!

Look forward to coming again!

The Jersey shore took a beating on Oct. 30th, 2012 when Superstorm Sandy tried to wipe us off the map. However, in the past three and a half years, homeowners, shop owners, restauranteurs, and local/state/federal government have cleaned up, built up, and improved what was already paradise to those who live here seasonally, year round, or those who visited for vacation. To begin, our totally renovated beach block home sits among all other new and improved residences and has the advantage of being within walking distance of Jerry's Fresh Farm Market, the Acme, a CVS, a liquor store, a MacDonald's, a bakery, a fish market, a beauty salon, and a bagel store. One short block away is the Sunny Hunny Pancake House where yummy breakfast food is served till 2PM. Lydia's across from Sunny Hunny serves/deliver Cuban food. Steps from our house, there is a fabulous BYOB Italian restaurant, Rockafellas. It's a MUST for at least one dinner during your stay. Next door to this fine establishment is the Golden Gate Express, Chinese food that is the favorite of all the locals. Three blocks north of us, there is Barnacle Bill's. Here you can play a round of miniature golf, enjoy arcade games, satisfy your hunger in their cafe, or just drop by for an ice cream cone. With Seaside Hts. just half a mile south, you can enjoy the Boardwalk with its multitude of eateries, games, rides, entertainment, fireworks, arcades, etc. There are fabulous restaurants in Seaside off the boardwalk as well. Many have nightclubs for crowds of all ages. Our favorite pub, Klee's Bar and Grill, is there also. At Klee's you will never be disappointed whether you choose their famous thin crust pizza, a burger, or a sizzling steak. The food, entertainment, and drinks are the best in town and are so reasonably priced. you will be tempted to go more than once. Traveling a bit more south, you will find Island Beach State Park, a narrow barrier island stretching for ten miles. You can swim, picnic, ride the bicycle trail, fish, and have a wonderful, healthy, exciting time when exploring the park's natural habitat. Lavallette, the coastal town just north of Ortley, is home to many fine eating, drinking, and shopping establishments. For one of a kind souvenirs or jewelry items, My Sister's Jewelry Box is a unique and wonderful shop coupled with My Sister's Favorite Things, where you can purchase spectacular beach attire, purses, cover-ups, dresses, etc. B&B Dept. store is one more block north. This store is exactly what you're looking for to get that perfect "something". And every other Wednesday during July and August they, along with the other shops in downtown Lavallette, have sidewalk sales where you can pick up some real steals! So whether your dream vacation is to just relax on the beach or you are ready for good times, good food, good drinks, and some adventure, Ortley Beach can be your quiet haven or your door to fun!
