About Owner/Manager

We have spent decades enjoying Stone Harbor with family and friends. It isn't a wild, crazy, party resort, though there is live music (rock and roll mostly) at Fred's in town and some evenings at Coffee Talk, a cafe on 97th Street. We love the safe, quiet atmosphere of the South End of Stone Harbor, where 'Whimsea' is located. In town, less than a mile away, there is plenty of fun outdoor activity and lots of fabulous boutique shopping along with antiques stores nearby, mini golf, movies! The beaches are wonderful and almost never crammed with people like other resorts. This is a special place we want to share with you as your vacation sanctuary You will want to return again and again!

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2003

Why Owner/Manager chose Stone Harbor

We bought our house here because Stone Harbor is immaculately clean, safe and beautiful. There is so much to do in such close proximity to this house. You really only need one car because you can walk or ride bikes to the market, town and anything in Stone Harbor or Avalon. They call this 'Seven Mile Island': nice bike loop and bike lanes on Second Avenue make this 'kid friendly' and more relaxing for parents!

What makes this house unique

Beach two blocks away with bonus of the Stone Harbor surfing beach to the right side. The house is very comfortable with soft buttery leather couches and recliner in living room. The second story deck is wonderful at night and sunset. This is a large beach and you can see the Ocean two blocks away. Charming, quaint and cottage-like and close to everything you need!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a lovely week! Great weather, biking and kayaking. Can't wait to come back next year.

Perfectly charming!

  • 5 of 5
All we wanted was a place that felt like home as it's only our second summer renting after having a family home to visit in SH for so many years. Whimsea felt like home, a charming cottage feel, open and clean with just the right amount of space for every member of the family to find some time alone to read and relax or to gather all together comfortably in the living room or upper deck. We absolutely loved it and appreciated the owners' personal touch and quick communications leading up to our stay. VERY pleased!!

Wonderful Week at the Beach

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Whimsea the week of June 18th 2011. We had a larger group - three kids, and at one point 6 adults. Most of the week it was just three kids and three adults. The house was a good size, even when we were all there we did not feel like we were stepping all over each other. Beach is very clean, but the ocean was a little rough.

The house is really cute and "beachy", and in a great location. My three kids ages 3 - 10 had no problems walking to the beach, and there are beach and bay views from the deck. Inside the house, the living room has comfy couches (as opposed to the typical rental furniture) and is more roomy then it looks in the pictures. The porch is a great place to eat or do puzzles, or for grandparents to have time away from the kids! The kitchen is a little small, but good for eating breakfast or snacks. For dinner or lunch there is a fold-out table in the entery way which can accomidate more people.

The bedrooms are nicely decorated. The first floor bedroom is perfect for kids - it has a bunkbed plus a pop-up bed. The two upstairs bedrooms are also nice and share a jack and jill bathroom. There is also an outdoor shower (is it very private) and great for cleaning up after the beach. Washer and dryer are located behind the house in a shed.

The owners are very friendly and helpful should anything occur.

Here are a few things we suggest to people. Donna's is only 1 1/2 blocks away and a great place to walk to in the mornings to get coffee and donuts. The Italian Garden is a great place for dinner, small but food is great. And you must go to Springer's ice cream (worth the wait). Tutto Gellato has excellent gellato that must be tried! Maribella's also great for homemade Italian food. Carney's was ok for seafood. We also went to the Crabbies Inc. about 50 minutes away for all you can eat crabs.

Overall a great place, and we would go there again! Normally we go to the Outter Banks or Myrtle Beach, but Stone Harbor is now our #1 pick.

Whimsea, Stone Harbor, NJ

This cottage was cozy and charming and a great place for our family of five to getaway. We enjoyed spending time on the front porch and the second level deck with ocean view was a bonus! The kitchen area was small but it was well stocked with new pots and pans. It was clean and we slept well. We loved the outdoor shower! The neighbors were friendly and the street was very quiet. There were a few older folks and a lot of young families. Most houses were asleep by 10pm. This would not be a place to go if you were a loud partying group. The boys rode their bikes all over Stone Harbor and it was very safe and lots of fun!
The owners were very nice and helpful, answering any questions by email or phone and making recommendations for local restaurants. We hope to visit again in the future!
