Families will find our home to meet all their needs with warmth and cheer. Our home is a raised reverse living contemporary with excellent ocean and bay views from the living room, as well as from our upstairs and rooftop decks. The top floor has the master, main deck, living room, kitchen, dining area and 1/2 bath. The house comfortably sleeps 10 in its 4 bedrooms and family room for which we provide Aero beds. Bathrooms are never in short supply with 3 full baths, a half bath and an outdoor shower. The master bedroom on the top floor and junior master on the second floor each have thier own TV, deck and bath. On the lower floor there are also two bedrooms that share a bath. The Sea Shell room has two twins and the Boat Room has a 'pyramid' bunk where the lower bed is a full sized mattress which works in a pinch for a third couple that is visiting or the big boys. Both the upstairs living room and downstairs family room have thier own deck and TV.
The location is perfect for everything you want or need. The front door is just 100 feet to the beach where you have guarded sections both to the right and left. You can fish right at our beach where there are stripers, bluefish, fluke and kingfish. And you can take the kids crabbing at the end of the block on the bay. Our street is one of the last in Harvey Cedars before Loveladies. Our beaches are uncrowded, guarded and, since the rebuilding project, HUGE (see YouTube videos). You can easily walk into town to go to the market with its breakfast counter, a sub shop, liquor store, gourmet deli and restaurants. And a short bike ride away are Harvey Cedars Marina, where you can rent kayaks and sailboats, as well as Sunset Park where you have public tennis and basketball courts, a baseball/soccer field and a nice pier for bay side fishing and crabbing.
The house is loaded with amenities for a family. There is a bar, MP3/CD player, movie library and even an expresso machine. If you have little ones, you'll appreciate the crib, booster seat, bath seat, bouncy seat and that all the stairs have guards. All of this is hidden away if you don't want to remember when your children were that little. If it rains, the TVs in the upstairs living room and downstairs family room have both VCR and DVD players. And the movie library includes children's movies. There are numerous board games, card games and puzzles in the upstairs closet for your use. There is even an X-BOX game system. And finally, there is high speed internet access with a wireless home network for those of you that can't escape work and e-mail.
We also supply beach badges, beach chairs, umbrellas, beach toys, tennis racquets, basketball and soccer ball. We want you to enjoy your vacation just as we do. If you are after pure relaxation, you can go to the house and not get into the car for the week. Enjoy everything the beach has to offer.
We are a Princeton, NJ family of five. We spend our annual vacation with extended family at the house as well as special holidays. The house is perfect for these cross generation, multiple family affairs. Young cousins have lots of room to play. Upstairs is a great place for evening cocktails with uncles, aunts and grandparents with its ocean and bay views from the decks and the living room. We have a large open kitchen so when you're fixing dinner you're in the middle of the party and the BBQ is just outside the door on the back deck. The counter and dinner table comfortably seat 12 so you all eat together. Grandparents and parents with little ones in strollers easily access the beach as a new access point with gradual ramps over the dune have been built. The kids run back and forth from the beach for lunch, bio-breaks and naps. Holidays are extraordinarily special here. Families don't dash in and out for just an afternoon. We spend real quiet time with each other as the island is all ours. My favorite times to visit are Columbus Day, Chowderfest, Thanksgiving and New Year's.
John Lopez-Ona purchased this house in 2002
Harvey Cedars is the greatest family beach location. The kids always find others with whom to play on the beach. Sunset Park provides day camps, play ground, hoops court and tennis. There is easy access to the bay. Town is an easy walk. Tons to do from Surf City to Barnagat Light. Its an unbelievable throw back in time.
Location, location, location. At our home, you have nearly everything you need for your vacation within walking distance. The entrance to the beach is 100 ft. from the front door. Immediately to the right and to the left are guarded beaches but if you want to stay away from the crowds, you just plop your chair right where you enter. You can go crabbing and catch a sunset at the other end of our street. Town is a pleasant four block walk. There you have a breakfast counter, two lunch shops, ice cream shop, liqour store, a casual seafood restuarant, a fine dining restuarant and a market with a butcher shop. If you get on a bike, you get to a marina to rent sailboats and kayaks or to a park with bay access, b-ball and tennis courts, playground, fishing/crabbing pier and ball fields which host soccer, lacrosse and baseball day camps. Location, location, location.
Your house was the perfect fit for us. It was welcoming, cozy and was stocked with everything we could possibly need! We were here for my daughter's wedding. It made our stay here extra special! A dose of sunshine, the sand and the ocean completed our memories in the making. Thank you!
Could not have been a better location for reunion with great friends. The beach is but steps away; sunrise in the morning, beach all day - with the house just minutes away for convenience, and after a great dinner with twelve on the spacious front deck, stroll back down to finish the day. Easily sleeps multiple families with ample room for the kids to safely run loose on the 1st level, while parents enjoy a fresh seafood feast on the main level. Open house plan is ideal for communal living. Ideal beach house for the reunion. Clean, well maintained, well provisioned. Very highly recommend.
Fabulous house in a perfect family setting. This home has everything. Large open kitchen, dining and living room area, large comfortable bedrooms, decks on 3 levels with great views of the ocean and bay. The recently replenished, guarded and un-crowded ocean beach is only 250 feet away and a guarded bay beach is a short half mile down the road. Walk just five blocks to dining, groceries, liquor store with ATM, etc.
This property is on a quiet street with nice neighbors and has a large back yard for games.
The owner is very attentive to your needs and provides excellent, responsive service.
We are grandparents from Seattle who have family on the East Coast. We were looking for the right spot for our extended family for a late September beach vacation and we found the perfect place! Great house and great location. Spacious and lovely, yet very functional, especially for the large group that we were. Loved the outdoor shower! And so close to the beach! We had an absolutely fantastic time. We hope to be back some day and would highly recommend the home for anyone looking for a great beach vacation.
A group of 8 stayed here for a destination wedding weekend. The location and beach are fantastic. The house has plenty of rooms and comfortable spots to hang out and large open kitchen to cook or grill on the deck.
This house is a great fit for large group of couples or family with kids. You are only steps away from the beach and the bay for sunsets is a short one block walk. There is fantastic deli market and ice cream shop also only a short walk into the center of Harvey Cedars. Love the north end of LBI since it not so commercial and less traffic. Also just a short drive to the Barnegat light house for spectacular views on a side trip.
Great house, we all had a wonderful weekend. I would stay here again when we come back to visit our friends.
In looking through VRBO for a early September rental came upon listing for this house. Description and owners pictures made it sound perfect for our family, and it was ! We were 7 adults and one toddler. One of the things that caught my eye originally was "baby gates" at top and bottom of stairs. They were there, and were perfect for keeping our little one safe. The layout of the house is perfect for large families. 4 Bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths provided comfort for everyone. Large open kitchen, dining, living room, large windows out to deck, plenty of room to be together. Dining room table large enough for all of us to have meals together. Rooftop deck was a plus for watching sunsets!! Very short walk to beautiful wide beach. Great neighborhood. 2 minute walk to Neptune Market ( yummy homemade crumb cake).Very accommodating , and responsive owner. Saw recent posting by owner, regarding new exterior painting, can't wait to see how it looks. Great family house , we will be returning in 2015 !
we have been visiting friends at Harvey Cedars for years. We decided to bring our nephew and nieces along with our family so we needed a place that was close to the beach and large enough to accommodate all of us. This place was perfect !! right off the beach, great space for the kids to have their own area to watch movies and play games while the adults had their own area to socialize. The top floor is great in that it has a great room off the dining and kitchen areas . the deck is adjacent to the great room with panoramic views of both ocean and bay. Spectacular!! The place was very clean and comfortable for all of us (9). Very close to shops and the local market and a few quant dining spots. Also and easy bike ride to Barnegat Light House and that end of the Island.
I highly recommend this property. The owners made us feel very welcomed .
Local park (Sunset Park) is nearby with playground, baseball field, basketball court, tennis court, fishing/crabbing pier, picnic tables and bay access.
