Ocean Shores Delight

  • 5 of 5

This house is roomy and comfortable with lots of seating. Excellent location, 1 1/2 blocks to beach and 3 to bay. We appreciated being able to bring our two labs with us on vacation. Tile floors throughout made it perfect for pets. There is an outside shower not shown in the pictures, with hooks for towels that keep them dry and a mirror to boot. Nice line in the backyard for drying towels.

Both the beach and bay areas have bench seating. We watched the sunset at the bay and geese swam by as well as a swan. Be sure to arrive at least 15 minutes before sunset for the best views.

We went out to eat, but used the large fridge and microwave for leftovers. Because of the bar and table, we were able to host a pizza party one night and invite friends over for drinks before we went out to dinner on another. Lots of Italian restaurants in the area with excellent fare. Great place to stay.

Lovely Property

  • 5 of 5

The property was great and was even more spaceous than the photos make it appear. The house is perfectly nestled between the (quiet and private) beach and the bay sides making either option a very quick walk, while still being only a 5 minute drive from the seaside heights boardwalk. We couldnt have asked for a nicer place to stay, and are already looking forward to our next trip!

Great Memorial Day Week Stay

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Mike! Our second stay this year at your wonderful beach home. The beach house has everything a family could ask for, a perfect beach stay. We enjoyed our walks on the beach only a short block away. What a great place to relax and enjoy the Jersey Shore. Hopefully we will be back again soon. Thank you again for your hospitality!

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Mike! We had a wonderful stay at your perfect beach home. The home is fully equipped with everything you can imagine. The home has an open floor plan and is very spacious. The bedrooms are large and inviting, with very comfortable beds. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and can highly recommend this perfect beach getaway. We have stayed in numerous shore area houses and this home is by far our very favorite. We look forward to staying again next year!

Great Family Beach Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

If you love the shore this place is for you.

The location is great (middle block) - you are just one block from the bay and just one block from the beach. The bay has a great playground and water is swim friendly. The beach is very clean, quiet and life guard staffed. There is a shower at the beach and the walking icecream man visits everyday! Quick walk to bakery, bagels, icecream, fishmarket and pizza.

The house is very well kept, clean and in reliable working order. The layout is very open and condusive to family vacationing - both living and family rooms, open kitchen/eating area, 3 bedrooms plus pull out couch, 2 full baths & outside shower. Much more space then you typically get in a little beach house.

The owner is a great guy and is always available.

We have stayed at this property 3 times and intend to continue to make it an annual trip.

Love Ocean Beach Shores!

  • 5 of 5

We found the house to be exactly what we were looking for! The layout allowed us the space to be together for cooking, eating and hanging but had areas to sit alone and read or watch TV. Love the extra living space and the second bathroom!

It has a nice wooden outdoor shower with plenty of space. Property was neat and well kept.

The beach was fabulous! Clean, quiet and had a great staff. The house has a nice, easy walk to the beach and just a bit further to check out the bay. Great location all the way around.

Being in the neighborhood of Ocean Beach Shores was great. The fact that the street has light car traffic keeps it quiet and open. There is no parking on the street. Having a bakery, bagel shop, seafood market and restaurant and a surf shop around the corner was a wonderful plus. Of course just a few blocks away was an amazing ice cream shop that couldn't be beat. There was always a line but the staff was plentiful and efficient!
