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

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! :-)

We LOVE our home in Avalon!! But....don't take our word for it....here are some of our guests opinions and experiences... 'The house is very warm and inviting, Terrific kitchen,Very large dining room table to accommodate hungry vacationers, Loved the front porch with the lovely blue stripe awnings, The outside shower was delightful, Very pleasant and lush back yard, Nice wide street, Just a short walk to the beach, Centrally located to restaurants, shops and bakeries, Rental process quite painless, Great house for a large group, Updated kitchen and large dining area, Can't beat the location, You can walk to everything, There is plenty of room in the home, Six bedrooms are very comfortable, Kids appreciated the large bunk beds, Family room is roomy and comfortable, Cooks in the family raved about the kitchen, There was plenty of room around the large dining room table, This is a great vacation home, Great front porch, We all enjoyed the dining room table, The beach house was in excellent condition, A fantastic layout and flow, Lots of space to rest and relax, All of the bedrooms were very spacious with closets, The bathrooms were clean and modern, The kitchen was well stocked with lots of pots, pans, and dishes,etc., We loved the yard, deck, grill and front porch, The outdoor shower was fantastic!, This was truly a wonderful house to stay in, Perfect walking distance to the beach, Great neighborhood, Close to shopping,etc., The property is in a great location, It has an excellent layout for large groups or multiple families, The owners are attentive and a pleasure to work with' So take our happy guests word for it..... because they speak louder than we do!!

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.

PERFECT VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
What a great week! This home is described accurately; very warm and welcoming. There is plenty of space, including a huge dining room table that with leaves that seats at least 12! Every dish, pan, or small appliance you could think of is there, including a waffle iron.

The house gets great cross breezes; the outside temps were in the 80s most of the week and we never needed the AC; the house stayed cool just with the windows open. We loved the porch too.

The location is perfect. Two blocks to the beach and a block to the center of town. Other than driving to church and the Acme for our big food shopping, we walked everywhere!

If you are looking for a home that is near the beach and town, isn't priced out of the stratosphere, is warm and welcoming with plenty of space for a large family, this is the house for you.

The owners were great to deal with and responded very promptly to any questions we had.

If we go back to Avalon, we would book this house again with no hesitation at all.

LOVELY AVALON

  • 5 of 5
If yu have never vacationed at Avalon yu should give it a try. The town is the best of small town and resort, beautiful wide beach and block after block of lovely home. The Doyle house is located in neighborhood with a residential feel and perfectly situated close to the beach, several churches and just down from Dune Avenue with shops, ice cream, restaurants and take out, all with a neighborhood feel. A bicycle path on Dune Avenue encourages you to rent a bike and locals will tell you that there is no need to lock it up when you stop to get a bite! I felt right at home in the Doyle house with its many bedrooms, perfectly appointed kitchen and LOVELY front porch. I really did not want to leave. Great vacation spot and house in or out of season.

AVALON FAMILY WEDDING

  • 4 of 5
We were looking for a place convenient to the beach where our branch of the family could stay for a long weekend to celebrate our nephew's wedding. The house looks unassuming from the photos but was perfect - 3 separate sleeping areas with bathrooms, a well equipped modern kitchen, a huge dining room, nice side deck with beach toys included and a nice backyard, outdoor shower and clothes line. The owners hooked us up with a babysitter who brought games for the kids. We were 2 blocks from the beach and the boardwalk and 2 blocks from the best bakery in south Jersey - Kohler's. Avalon is a community of brand new, over the top expensive rentals. This place had everything we needed, was affordable and just the right balance of nostalgia for the way the shore used to be and appropriate upgrades to make our stay quite comfortable. Would definitely recommend for families or a group of friends.

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!!
