Overview

Bay Head House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Bay Head - the jewel of the New Jersey Shore - is a quaint seashore community of historic cedar shake homes with easy access, by train or car, to New York City. It is a community to which families return, year after year, generation after generation. If you want to start a memorable family summer tradition, Bay Head is your town.

Our home is beautifully maintained. A new kitchen, new back door, new indoor/outdoor carpeting on the screened porch, new back storm door and new front storm door were recently installed. The living room / dining room is knotty pine which gives off a glow during the evening hours... complete with a fireplace, in addition to 4 bedrooms and 2 1/2 bathrooms. Enter the screened porch from the French doors in the living room. You may also enter from the kitchen. The porch is a perfect spot for your morning coffee or end-of-day refreshment.

The address of the home is 55 North Street and it overlooks Twilight Lake.

Six beach badges are included in the rental. No beach badges are needed for children under 12.

When we vacation there , we eat all meals on the porch as it is so lovely with the view and breezes. An outside shower - a summer standard amenity - is located on the side of the home. There is much off street parking.

The home is 6 houses from the beach, which is an important consideration, given that parking and public facilities are limited, and food is not allowed on the beach. If you want maximum and convenient beach-time, location is important, especially for families with children.

Each bedroom is equipped with overhead fans but with breezes from the lake, it is just lovely. All bedrooms have window A/C units. There are 6 twins, 3 queens and 1 full bed providing much sleeping comfort. There is a first floor bedroom with a connecting full bathroom. On the second floor there are three bedrooms. The bedroom with the queen size bed connects to a half bath. On the other side of the half bath is a bedroom with 3 twins, 1 full and 1 queen. There is a third bedroom with 3 twins. There is also a full bathroom with tub and stall shower on the second floor. There is free domestic long distance and the house is equipped with wireless high speed internet. An Ethernet cable is also left. There is a pod coffee maker in addition to the traditional coffee maker. The new stereo/ CD has an IPOD docking station. Starter containers/supplies of the following are left for each vacationer: laundry detergent, liquid detergent, dishwashing detergent, paper towels, toilet paper, tissue, shampoo, conditioner, soap, coffee filters and cleaning aids .

We have found that Bay Head provides a very unique summer experience for kids. During the school year, their days seemed to be filled with scheduled activities. The Bay Head beaches, however, provide kids with endless hours of pick-up whiffle ball, football, and running bases, in addition to, swimming, boogie-boarding, fishing, surfing, and crabbing. And, the beaches are patrolled by friendly lifeguards who get to know everyone.

Our home is designed to provide you with all the amenities you need to make your vacation relaxing, comfortable, and worry-free. All you need to add is a pair of flip flops, a bathing suit, and a change of clothes. PLUS A WELCOME GIFT IS LEFT FOR YOU! Enjoy!

Why Marge Geraghty chose Bay Head

Bay Head is a perfect summer community. This house is within walking distance to the train... great for commuters to NYC.

What makes this house unique

Each bedroom has overhead fans. There is a pod coffee maker in addition to the traditional coffee makers. There are a variety of games and a library of paperback and hard cover novels by best selling authors for the vacationers to enjoy. Previous tenants have used a local baby supply firm for a wide variety of new baby equipment all delivered to the premises for you.

Adorable home and great for groups/families!

  • 5 of 5

The house is adorable! Really great for groups and families. Everyone in our group had rave reviews about the house! The kitchen was fully stocked, rooms are very well kept--nice linens and comfortable beds. My personal favorite was the large screened in porch--great for dining as it has a large table that can comfortably seat more than 12. The house is also offset from the main road, so private, and it is near the water, so it has a beautiful view. The living is also very homey and comfortable--great place to hang out. Last, but not least, he house is only a five minute (or less) walk from the beach.

Love this house!

  • 5 of 5

We planned a birthday celebration for our Mother and were delighted to rent this home. All 10 women were comfortable and happy. Bay Head is gorgeous and we walked, biked, and enjoyed the beach which is two very short blocks (really, about 7 houses) away. We loved the lake view and enjoyed meals out on the screen porch. Marge was terrific. She left us a wonderful basket of goodies and brought roses to my Mom for her birthday. The house is very well equipped and the beds are super comfortable. Thanks Marge, we hope to return!

Spacious Beach House, Beautiful Views, So close to beach!

  • 5 of 5

Bay Head is one of the most quaint, beautiful towns on the Jersey Shore and this home was everything and more it promised to be. The owner made us feel like family as we prepared to host family from Pittsburgh there as my son made his First Communion. The house has a well equipped kitchen, and everything you will need in the way of linens, etc. The bedrooms and living area were spacious- also a great yard! So close to the beach and right across from the lake- beautiful! We would definitely stay again!

Girlfriend's Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My group of seven adult women (all cousins) rented this home for our annual Girlfriend's Getaway in late November--perhaps not normally a time most people go to the beach. However, we were looking for a place where we could relax and enjoy one another's company (along with shop & eat). From the minute we opened the door, we felt right at home. The house is so cozy (and I don't mean small--it's actually quite big--but warm and inviting) and just about every amenity you could think of was there for our use. Owner Marge G. was a delight to deal with and offered many wonderful suggestions about places to go. We are planning to do it all again in 2011!

Perfect Autumn, "mini-destination" wedding guest accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish this was the perfect fit for us. We needed a weekend accommodation for ten family members of various needs and ages. We did not want to go to a hotel, so that we could have some quality family time. If you're looking for a weekend in the fall down at the Jersey shore you will find that not too many owners are willing to offer their homes for such a short time frame at this time of year. However, this was graciously done for us by the owner. We wanted to entertain out-of-state family members in a home setting with a home-cooked meal. The comfortable family room/den complete with fireplace was the perfect intimate setting for our pre-event dinner. The house gives you the feeling as if a friend had offered their home to use with all of the many little personal touches/amenties available. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils, and various other supplies which were offered for our use. The "dorm room" was a fun space for the teenage girls. The gorgeous sunsets over Twilight Lake were an added bonus! The screened porch was lovely, and I could imagine that it would be used extensively in warmer weather. The house was clean, and nicely located. It reminded me of childhood family vacations at the Jersey shore. I would absolutely rent this house again. THANK YOU!!!
