The GRISHAM HOUSE: AVALON'S ONLY WATERFRONT BEACH HOUSE!
** Most of our summer guests are regulars who re-book every year, therefore we will not be taking any new reservations for summer 2015 until after Labor Day. If you have interest in summer 2015 please contact me after Labor Day to see if we have any open dates. ** Right now our next open dates are Sept 14-19, 2014. Please check the calendar for availability before sending an inquiry.
You can throw a stone into the water from our spacious 65 FOOT WIDE wrap around deck with SPECTACULAR, sweeping views across the harbor, the town, the beach and the ocean. This is the ideal place for dining, drinks, entertaining, sunbathing, playing cards or simply watching the world go by. You'll never want to leave!
We are superbly located just steps away from the beaches, shopping, restaurants, bars and all the recreational activities like swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing, parasailing, basketball, volleyball and the many great sightseeing tours which are available. We are also a very short, 2 minute level walk from the boat dock.
Durng the day, we are right in the middle of all the activity Avalon has to offer; full of hustle and bustle. And nearly everyone who takes the ferry walks right past our property, so if you enjoy people watching, you'll be in heaven. At night however, after the 'day trippers' go home and the businesses below us close, it is pretty calm and quiet.
This is a 100 year old classic, comfortable and casual beach house with smaller sized bedrooms, so if you're looking for a Sheraton Hotel experience this may not be for you. However we are Avalon's #1 Vacation Rental home and we get numerous repeat guests and sell out every year. Our superior location and wonderful, relaxing and spectacular view decks is what attracts guests to us year after year. Several of our regulars have been coming for more than 20 years. THERE IS NO FINER SPOT FOR A FAMILY VACATION OR A COUPLES GETAWAY. (NOTE: We will not be taking new reservations for summer 2015 until after Labor Day in order to allow our many regulars first opportunity to re-book for the following year)

Guestbook comments from the owner
I absolutely loved it and all the throngs of activities. This has been probably the best vacation ever. I had such an amazing time. Sad to leave but very much hope to make this a regular family trip. For once, I'm simply not ready to return to New York.
