About Dot Huff

We inherited our beautiful vacation home from our parents and are very excited to be able to rent it out so others can enjoy one of the most desirable vacation resorts in the USA! We have enjoyed Avalon for many, many years and want to share it with you! Did you know that Avalon is the premiere family-oriented vacation shore community in Southern New Jersey? It offers beautiful beaches, many opportunities for fishing, boating, crabbing, tennis courts, basketball courts, playgrounds, parks, a number of summer sports camps, many fine restaurants & shops and family activities. We have historic villages, beautiful gardens, cultural arts, golf courses, antique shops, and whatever else suits your pleasure within a few minutes' ride of Avalon. So come on down!!

Dot Huff purchased this house in 1975

Why Dot Huff chose Avalon

Here's a recent article about Avalon that explains why we choose to stay in Avalon. (Avalon, NJ)—Avalon has been formally recognized by having one of the Top Ten beaches in the entire state of New Jersey. That announcement was made today during a media event this afternoon in Sandy Hook, New Jersey. Avalon’s beaches placed seventh in the state during an online survey. The balloting process took three months, and resulted in more than 16,000 votes being cast. “This is great news for Avalon residents and visitors”, said Avalon Mayor Marty Pagliughi. “Once again, there is overwhelming proof that residents and visitors appreciate Avalon’s beaches, and recognize the borough’s restoration efforts that have been ongoing for decades”. Couldn't have said it better myself! :-)

Serenity, Love the Beach

  • 5 of 5
Years ago we decided a family vacation is a great Christmas present for our three married children, grandchildren and my husband and I. We have stayed here 5 years and counting! We have made many wonderful memories here. This house meets all of our needs - walking distance to the beach and stores down town, adequate parking, a quiet neighborhood, enough bedrooms and enough bathrooms (the outside shower is the BEST). The large dining room and open kitchen were great for the family meals and the living room provided comfortable seating for all of us to play games, read, craft or watch tv. This home has a warm atmosphere and is beautiful. This is a great house for vacationing! Did I mention how wonderful the oweners are, the best!

Wonderful home for time in Avalon. Well suited for us - three families, including four children. Great location, short walks to the center of everything and to the beach. Dot Huff was a great person to work with.

Return to Avalon

  • 5 of 5
After seven years of family vacation weeks in other locations, our family came back to Avalon and to this great house. Our family has been an Avalon family for over 70 years. We range in age from 2 years old to 92 and come from across the country to be together. This house met all of our needs - walking distance to the beach and stores down town, adequate parking, a quiet neighborhood, enough bedrooms and enough bathrooms. The large dining room and open kitchen were great for the family meals and the living room provided comfortable seating for all of us to play games or watch tv. This is a great house for vacationing

Awesome week of family fun!

  • 5 of 5
The week was a Christmas present to our 3 grown children and their families. The home was great for 10 of us to cook and enjoy family meals. Everyone had their own room and our grand kids loved the bunk beds. The home was very clean, neat and had everything we needed. We enjoyed crabs on the picnic table out back and reading on the front porch. We really felt right at home. The walk to the beach was fine and we enjoyed being by bakeries and restaurants! We hope to go back in the future!

Great location, great property, nice owner

  • 4 of 5
We recently stayed at this property. Great location (2 blocks to beach, 1/2 block to main street - Dune.) On the beach side of Avalon/not the bay (which is what we wanted). Spacious, with a nice layout (great for families who might share a house). We had no "issues", but when I had some questions, I found the owner to be very responsive. No driveway-street parking, but it was not an issue - you can easily find a spot on the block.

This was the 3rd year we rented this property and it is terrific. Plenty of room and easy access to beach and commercial area of Avalon. Parking is great on the street once you get past the weekend.

96th Street in Stone Harbor

If you are looking for adventure, there are unlimited activities to keep you busy. For the water lovers, you can enjoy boating, sailing, wave running, kayaking, paddle boarding, water skiing, wake boarding, fishing, surfing and swimming in our ocean and back bays. If staying on land suits you better, take up a game of beach volleyball, play tennis at one of our newly renovated courts, or visit one of our nine parks and playgrounds.

For those who prefer a slower pace, enjoy a walk on our seven miles of safe and beautiful beaches, sit back and enjoy a boat tour, take a leisurely bike ride through town or visit one of our public docks and watch the sunset. Shopping also is a favorite pastime. While Stone Harbor has always been known for its famous 96th Street shopping district, Avalon now has a unique shopping district of its own, along Dune Drive. With more than a hundred stores to visit within the seven miles, you are sure to find what you are looking for, and what you didn’t even realize you needed!

When the sun goes down, the excitement is just beginning. Whether it is casual dining with the family or a romantic night out, we have a lot to offer. There are more than 30 restaurants to choose from, with selections from seafood and steak to burgers and wings. After dinner, stop in one of our bars or nightclubs for an after-dinner drink, take in a movie or play a round of miniature golf! From sunrise to sunset, you can make yourself as busy or as relaxed as you want.

So come and stay at our beach house and enjoy Avalon!!
