Ocean City House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Full Baths (Sleeps 6)

This home has been family owned for 3 generations enjoying all the excitement of the Jersey shore. This first floor unit has been completely renovated to provide all the modern amenities, while designed to maintain a historic appeal. You will notice refinished original hardwood floors, solid wood 5-panel doors, accents of seashore tiles, and a stained glass transom. All mattress sets are 'Heavenly Beds' by Simmons for luxurious comfort, and all bedrooms along with living and dining room have ceiling fans.

The newly designed kitchen, with all stainless steel appliances, provides open access to the living area and front porch, great for family gatherings and entertainment. Granite counter tops include a double sink and additional bar sink. The front porch also includes a breakfast nook complete with a built-in window seat. A newly created outside seating area includes private area for sitting, watching the passer-bys and grilling! A gas Weber grill will be provided. High-speed wireless internet is also available.

Actual address is 831 St. James Place. This unit is 1 block from the beach and the start of the boardwalk. Our end of the boardwalk hosts the 1st street lifeguard station with bathrooms and first aid, if necessary. Close by on the boards is Brown's restaurant,famous for their fresh morning donuts, and Anthony's Water Ice for those hot beach days. The property also has an outside shower and changing room for rinsing off after returning from the beach. At the opposite end of our block from the beach, there is a deli, restaurant, pizza shop, and ice cream parlor within 1-3 short blocks. Additionally, we offer 6 beach tags, boogie board, horseshoes, and family board games to get started on your fun.

About tristin thompson

Hello, I am Tristin Thompson, 3rd generation home owner to this property. I spent my summers in this house on the 3rd floor while tenants rented the 1st and 2nd floor. I was responsible for cleaning the rentals on Saturdays before I could go ride my bike or play on the beach and boardwalk. My father still uses the 2nd and 3rd floor during his summers. I reside in Kentucky and only get to visit Ocean City for short durations to get the property ready for the summer or to close it down. I love staying there and I love how the entire renovation provided new updated conveniences but still gives me the comfy feel of summer at the beach!

tristin thompson purchased this house in 2006

Why tristin thompson chose South NJ Shore

This place is a family keepsake, passed down through the generations and with the memories of Ocean City summers. It is totally renovated with all modern conveniences. Location is ideal for all the activities in Ocean City

What makes this house unique

Great Location, Active street for people watching, Close to the beach. The Heavenly Beds make for a dreamy comfortable sleep. Remember I am a chiropractor, so comfort and support is necessary for good sleep!

Well maintained, clean, functional and all the luxuries of being "at Home"

We had a wonderful stay at "The Beach House"

It's close to the beach, has central AC, comfy beds and is updated throughout. Location is perfect for walking, biking or strolling. Spacious and open floor plan. I liked having 2 sinks in the kitchen with plenty of counter space. The bar lights add a splash of fun! Bar stools let everybody hang around together when preparing a meal. Rare to have a 3 bedroom 3 shower so close to the beach with lots of beach tags, a couple of chairs and linens provided was a plus since we traveled so far. 10 different families had rented 10 different houses and I liked our set up the best of the 10!!! We came the farthest from Redondo Beach., Ca. and we would come back here next time again!!!

Thank you Tristin for making it so easy!!!

This was the perfect house for my young family (three children under 7 years). The close proximity to the beach, first aid station/bathrooms, and Browns was a lifesaver for my husband and I. The street was quiet and front porch perfect for early mornings and evenings. We loved the sweet, beachy touches around the home- especially loved the beautiful stained glass window. The living areas and kitchen offered tons of space for us to prepare meals, relax, and for our children to play. Owner was fantastic to work with. Great experience and wonderful vacation.

Wonderful Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at this beautiful beach house. Location is perfect...close to beach, boardwalk, Brown's & other attractions. We parked our car and never used it until we left. Loved the decor, family board games and special touches in the house. Also, appreciated the linens and towels being supplied. The outdoor grill was a great addition! House was in perfect shape when we arrived. Owner is great to work with. Hope to be back next year!

Great location and full of beachy charm

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate enough to score this rental during the fall which is the perfect time for a beach get-away. The house was well appointed for us- a family of 3 generations. The living area was spacious enough for 5 adults and two children to comfortably eat and visit. Great distance from the beach and parking wasn't an issue off-season. The finishes in the house are gorgeous- care was clearly taken during the renovation to make decisions reminiscent of older shore houses, but with all modern conveniences. The owners were very helpful and it was a pleasure to stay here. We hope to return!
