House, 5 Bedrooms with 6 beds (4 queen and 2 king) .., 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

BAY FRONT...what a view! Sunsets are breathtaking..You will never want to leave! You will be right on the open Bay with a view that extends for miles. And if you need it, there is a dock for a large boat.

In the back, there is also a large deck with a gate that locks, as well as a very large separate cement patio on the water, with perfect views from morning coffee through spectacular evening sunsets. You can sunbathe on the water without every leaving your backyard. Large Umbrellas, outdoor dining furniture, lounge chairs, Weber grill included for your relaxing pleasure. Wonderful for families and friends to gather. Deck and Patio seat 12-25 people!

Just sit and watch the boats go by. Extremely private setting with trees on the perimeter of the backyard so you feel like you are on your own private island. Evenings you can sit on the patio under the lights and feel the warm breeze off the water. Watching the stars over the water, while sitting by the fire of the fire pit is amazing.

Backyard is fully furnished with 6 high end lounge chairs, dining table for 8, large bar for 6 and large BBQ grill. There is a large deck off the back of the house which opens to a larger patio and dock, all on the water.

If you want you can take a walk up to the beach. There is also a bay beach for children a mile up the road with swings and slides and warm shallow water to swim. Walk to the large ACME supermarker or restaurants. 5 minute drive to Seaside Boardwalk. 4 Beach badges are provided.

Biking is absolutely wonderful with all the large, quiet streets.

The house is on a quiet dead end street. Plenty of parking.

There are 5 beautiful bedrooms and 6 beds. (2 on main floor) which can easily sleep 12 or more comfortably. There is 4 queen beds, and 2 king beds; all high quality. There are 2 bedrooms on the main floor and 3 on the second floor, 2 with outside balconies overlooking the water.

There are 2 HD smart tvs and 2 smaller tvs in bedrooms.

There are 2 Full Baths plus one additional inside shower in back of sunroom.

The house also has a Living room, large Dining Room to seat 8, Fully stocked Kitchen with a breakfast bar, and large Sunroom overlooking the water... beautifully furnished with Central Air, Cathedral ceilings, Skylights and Ceiling fans in all rooms.

This is a beautiful two story home with views of the open bay and outside upper balconies from two of the 5 bedrooms and the sunroom. Not your average beach house!

Being right on the bay offers you a beauty, tranquility and privacy that can't be compared with any other spot on the shore.

You're doing yourself a favor by staying here

  • 5 of 5

I've never been so speechless when writing a review. Doreen was the sweetest and most accommodating house owner I've ever worked with. She was so thorough and very kind. She even left goodies out for us when we checked in on Friday night, and ordered our household pizzas for dinner! The 12 of us had celebrated a birthday for the weekend, and we were upset that we didn't get the chance to stay longer. The house was IMMACULATE. The kitchen was fully stocked, bedrooms were spacious and comfy, there was plenty of couches and chairs to relax on, tvs and appliances were modern, and the bathrooms were super clean. And lastly, her view was absolutely gorgeous. The backyard was our ultimate favorite place to hang out. It was quiet and intimate and also a beautiful place for gathering to celebrate our friend's birthday. I woke up in the morning to these beautiful views and stayed outside till the sun went down. DO NOT MISS THE SUNSET. It's so worth it! Location is a 5 min drive to Seaside's boardwalk and beach. Everything is extremely accessible and close by, but also very quiet and secluded on your own block. I'm forever grateful for this amazing weekend. Thank you for everything Doreen!

Beautiful home, fabulous sunset

  • 5 of 5

The home was perfect for our mini WWII Navy reunion. Kitchen is well equipped with plenty of pots/pans and dishes. We made several meals and it was so easy to keep in the conversation while prepping in the kitchen. There are two big rooms with plenty of comfy sofas and chairs and the back sun room has a beautiful view of the bay. Beds were comfy and having two bedrooms downstairs worked great for us as we had a couple of people who could not climb the stairs. There are 2 master bedrooms upstairs with great views of the bay, and both rooms had little balconies. We flew in from California so Doreen made sure we had everything we needed. She even provided pizzas for our group for the first night. Everyone loved the pizza and there was enough we had leftovers for another day. There is an Acme grocery store nearby, and we were able to purchase all of the food and essentials for a wonderful stay. Thank you Doreen for sharing your beautiful home with us. We can't wait to come again.

Our home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay for 2 weeks was absolutely AMAZING! The owners were outstanding from Day 1. After many, many years of vacationing at the Jersey shore, this was the first time bay side and all I can say, as well as my family and friends, is WOW! Nothing like sitting in the back enjoying the boaters, jet skiers, swans and the awesome sunsets! Booking for next year! Thank you Doreen for everything! You were great to work with and I feel like we are family! <3

We rented this house as a group of 11 for prom weekend. The communication with the owners was great and they were very helpful! The house is absolutely gorgeous and the views are breath taking. We spent most of our time outside on the dock, and bought a raft for the bay which we highly recommend! (We got it at acme for $22). Being a prom group, we were still treated with respect and doreen was just as amazing as the other reviews said! Overall, we highly recommend the house to anyone!

A Spectacular Vacation to Remember

  • 5 of 5

Doreen and Allen were able to make my family’s visit to Seaside possible and extremely enjoyable (even though the weather did not cooperate). From the beginning to the end they helped me plan the visit and ensured that everything that we needed was available in the house. They are the most warm hearted, responsible people that I have ever met.

Upon arriving at the house I was astounded by it’s magnificent setup and spacious rooms.

The pictures don't do the house enough justice, you really have to visit to see the beautiful view of the bay from the deck. Doreen and Allen even bought my family pizza for lunch and they loved every bite! It was expected to down pour on Friday so they made sure we had all the TV channels we needed to stay entertained. It was thoughts like this that made our visit so enjoyable and delightful.

This spectacular experience left us leaving with big smiles and we will be sure to rent again.

Thank you Doreen and Allen!
