About Bonnie Todd Marino
Mary and Daryl Todd have owned the Merivale property since their 4 children were youngsters. They grew up on the beaches of Beach Haven and bought the property so their children could experience the same joy and rebirth they did as children. Now that they are grandparents of 12, they love to see their grandchildren picking up the torch for the island and especially for their home on Merivale. There is a special joy that comes with knowing their grandchildren will get out of the car and immediately walk the few steps to the beach and just breath it in. It is the finest gift they can pass on. It is the knowing that they will always be able to return to the shore for healing, growth and revitatlization. Generations of Beach Haven summers go into the beach owners home at Merivale. The house has seen many a storm and stood strong dating back to the 1950's. The owners have a deep respect for the ocean and the beach. Most of all they want to share their love of the sound of the gulls and the surf. They want you to remember the sunrises and take them with you through the winter. The ocean, the beach and their beach house is something they want you to experience and enjoy. In the words of one of the matriarch's of the family. 'What could be nicer.'
Bonnie Todd Marino purchased this condo in 1976
Why Bonnie Todd Marino chose Beach Haven
Merivale Ave. is a lovely street in the southern section of Beach Haven. 220 Merivale is the end of the street, closest home to the beach and the ocean. The owners grew up or summered on the island and although they have traveled to other places, recognize and love its village atmosphere and consider it a most cherished and special place.
What makes this condo unique
There is a small private fenced in area in front of the decks.It allows for private beach parties and secure spots for little children to build their castles, play ball or just lie in the sun. A covered porch overlooks it for adults to read, work or use their tablets and know their kids are in sight. It is so easy to rise with the sun and go on a beach treasure walk or an early morning swim. It is so nice to have a lobster feast overlooking the ocean and listening to the surf. You can enjoy a beach party in front of the porch as the sun goes down. The fishermen are a stones throw from the best fishing beaches. The surfers enjoy great waves in the blocks surrounding Merivale.
