WATERFRONT PROPERTY W/ STUNNING VIEWS! SWIM & KAYAK

Stone Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Lovely waterfront home has uninterrupted views of marshlands. Swimmers will enjoy jumping off the dock into the swift current of the creek. Children can spend countless hours crabbing from the dock directly behind the house. Birders will enjoy frequent sightings of blue heron and white egrets. Or, launch your kayak directly off the dock and explore miles of waterways.

The property has two large docks with a swim ladder; the covered patio offers complete shade and respite from the sun; a rooftop deck offers spectacular views. The house is crisply decorated and has central air conditioning. After a long day at the beach, rinse-off in the enclosed, hot-water, outdoor shower to refresh before dinner. Enjoy a family BBQ (gas grill provided) and outdoor dining in the lovely backyard with incredible views. Large screen TV, cable, DVD/blu-ray player, high-speed Internet. Kayaks will be available for use, as long as renters continue to treat them well and not lose the paddles :) Four beach passes included.

What to bring? Everything fun to take advantage of the waterfront location, e.g. kayaks, fishing rods, crab traps, water floats, umbrellas, beach chairs. For land-lovers, bring your bikes! Bike up and down 7-Mile island.

Stone Harbor's famous beaches are a 15 minute walk or 5 minute drive from the house. Quaint shops and lovely restaurants are a 10 minute walk into town. Walk across the street to the Wetlands Institute where children can enjoy many wildlife programs and touch animals in the live feeding tanks; adults can view the nearby nesting osprey, take back bay boat rides and enjoy lectures about the wetlands. Cape May, an historic Victorian town, is a 20 minute drive south on the Garden State Parkway. Visit the Zoo, a 10 minute drive north on the Garden State Parkway. Take the kids to enjoy a day of amusement rides and water parks at the Wildwood boardwalk, 20 minutes south (rides appropriate for children ages 3+).

Our family enjoying a boat ride on the inland waterway at sunset, 1/8 mile from the property.

Suzanne purchased this house in 2003

My husband and I have been vacationing in Stone Harbor for over 20 years. Stone Harbor is a fantastic destination that offers something for everyone in the family. We enjoy motor-boating, sailing, windsurfing, kayaking and waverunning - all of which we can do right from the dock on our property. My daughter absolutely loves the beach. And, I enjoy window shopping in downtown Stone Harbor.

Our property is on a quiet cul-de-sac road overlooking an expansive marshland in Stone Harbor Manor. I can 'almost' guarantee that we have the BEST view of any bayfront property in Stone Harbor. Most other Stone Harbor bayfront homes have views of other properties across the bay. I personally prefer to sip my pina coladas watching the sailboats in the distance and blue herons walking along the waterline. Our home has so much to offer including swimming, fishing, kayaking, and bird watching. We are located across from one of the largest Laughing Gull rookeries in the country, and we have Diamondback Turtles nesting directly in our yard! Town is a 10 minute walk and the beach is a 15 minute walk from the house.

GREAT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
My family (6) gathered to celebrate my sister's birthday with some birdwatching at the shore.
The house was perfect, it was very clean and comfortable AND very well supplied with all the kitchen things you always need and usually forget.
It was too cold to use the kayak, but the view from the deck was very enjoyable.
We thoroughly enjoyed the Wheaton Arts in Millville. Great time, great house!!

GREAT OFF-SEASON RENTAL FACING THE WETLANDS JUST OUTSIDE STONE HARBOR

  • 5 of 5
Our mid-fall stay at this property was most enjoyable: a comfy, clean, modern, functional home, from the back yard of which one can literally launch a kayak into the wetlands or just watch great egrets fish from the deck; as well as use as one's base for exploring the area on foot or by car. It being mid-October, it was too cool to swim or barbecue, but warmer days allowed for a bit of outdoor deck lounging, and it was a go week for avid paddlers with wetsuits. For those whose idea of fun excludes wearing neoprene, there are all kinds of land's end towns and exurbs to explore throughout the Cape May environs. Nighttime was ideal for World Series and movie watching, eating in the restaurants and taverns that are open year-round where the locals go, and for exploring the deserted summer beach towns like Wildwood.

I would unreservedly recommend this property, under its current ownership, to friends/relatives seeking a quiet, comfortable, outdoor-based getaway. The amenities -- from a good stereo to modern clock/radios in bedrooms to two full baths to cozy blankets in the den to a well-equipped kitchen (there was even a wine aerating tool!) to decent recreational kayaks capable of seating three -- bespeak the owners' forethought and welcoming attitude toward their houseguests; and the home's location -- on a quiet side street in easy walking distance of town and the beach -- perfect. This house, and this area, are perfect for reflective human beings who want to relax, enjoy nature, get out, and get away while still in New Jersey, probably not so much so for wild partygoers.

We particularly loved Rick's Seafood in North Wildwood, both the raw and cooked-meal take out, and, of course, Kohr's ice cream and the Fudge Kitchen (for it's chocolate, not its fudge or taffy), both downtown.

BEST OF THE SHORE!

  • 5 of 5
This house is a gem in Stone Harbor. Love the new downstairs room - perfect space for family game night. We also enjoyed your great dock, especially swimming and kayaking off it (thanks for leaving us the double kayak). We did have fun with the kids at the beach a couple days, but was drawn to your waterfront most of the week. We'll definitely be back.

SECOND TIME A CHARM!

  • 5 of 5
As a second time visitor to the property, I was stunned to see how quickly and efficiently repairs had been after weathering through hurricane Sandy. The improvements make the downstairs space even more open and user friendly. The position of this property is excellent. Within easy, walking or cycling distance to town, yet peaceful and relaxing. Stunning views of the marsh, maybe the best there is!
The huge dock area provides easy access for kayaking, wave runners or just plain swimming. Bird watchers, turtle spotters and lovers of the outdoors will find great pleasure in the area and the properties position and amenities allow guests to take full advantage of this outstanding position.

RELAXING AND ENJOYABLE

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I just completed our 3rd stay in four years and had another great time. The lower level is newly renovated and is a nice place to watch TV or just hang out. All the amenities (see the listing) make the house a home away from home. It is very conveniently located; the Stone Harbor shops and beach are a 5 min drive away and Ocean City, Wildwood, and Cape May are not far away. We always enjoy the experience of being right on the salt marsh. The ability to launch my kayak from the dock is great and the sound of the gulls and other birds is a welcome change from cars and machinery.
