About Ann

We grew up in New York, live in Los Angeles and love to come back 'home' to enjoy the beach in Lavallette.

Ann purchased this house in 2005

Why Ann chose Toms River

There is not a better beach in the world than the Jersey Shore! And this home is close to everything - parks, beaches, mini golf, bagel shop, ice cream, restaurants, etc. - all walking distance.

What makes this house unique

Easy access to both the ocean beach and bay beach, one block each way, means this home is in the ideal location. Recently remodeled with top off the line appliances throughout. Excellent beach association has fun stuff for the entire family. Raised home means even Hurricane Sandy can't flood it.

Fun week at the New Jersey Shore

  • 5 of 5

- This house was everything we had hoped it would be. Very clean and neat- all the comforts of a home away from home. The only thing missing was a potato peeler and when I told the caretaker - the very next day she brought one over to the house for us ! It was really a pleasure to stay at this property.

thank you

Misleading Pictures and less than clean.

  • 2 of 5

I really wanted to like this beach house. It had a couple of great reviews. I rented this for my parents to stay in while they were visiting New Jersey. Upon checking in, the first thing we noticed was the lack of cleanliness. The outside of the house had lots of garbage and debris under and around it (parts of paper cups, cans, plastic bags, an ashtray etc...). The bathroom had a moldy gross looking shower curtain, the shower did not work (the knob was on backwards and only did hot or cold with no in between, we put a call in to the owner but did not get a response until the next day. My dad eventually had to take it apart and repair it.), there was what appeared to be dried toothpaste in the sink, the toilet was dirty. Moving on to the kitchen, the stove door does not close properly (there is like an inch gap between the door and the stove, which the owner said it's been like that for a long time and it's parents were not comfortable using it), there was some sticky goo on the counter that needed to be cleaned up. The garbage cans were filthy and gross. The bar stool type chairs that are in the kitchen are not the ones shown in the picture and one had a broken piece on the back. The living room furniture is much more abused looking than in the picture on the website, there is an inch of dust on every ceiling fan blade. As for the bedrooms, the walls are filthy, the pictures on the website are not an accurate representation. The pillows have multiple nasty stains on them. The bed in the single bedroom is missing the back piece. The bedspreads and blankets were stuffed in a very dusty dirty closet. The baseboard heaters were rusty, dusty and just generally gross looking. The closet in the single bedroom was filthy with dirt and debris (gum wrappers, broken parts of hangers and dust balls) on the floor. Ann, the owner, did try to make it right by refunding $100 to my parents and we appreciated the effort but overall it seems as if the place was misrepresented and we were quite disappointed. I wanted to give a 1 star review, but I gave it 2 stars because Ann did give us a small refund for the shower & cleanliness issue.

Great location, walkable to beach

  • 4 of 5

My spouse and I spent a wonderful week here over the summer. We loved that we could bring our dog! The quick walk to the beach was fantastic.

The house served as a nice home base for our week at the shore. There were a few small things that had been missed when we arrived (sand on the bar stools, escaped trash under the sink and in the driveway, no corkscrew in the kitchen). We never gave the owner a chance to fix these things since they were so easy to do ourselves. The surfaces and bedding were obviously freshly cleaned. We didn't find the couch and love seat to be super comfortable, but we didn't want to spend a lot of time on the couch anyway. We appreciated the in-unit washer and dryer, which helped a lot with beach towels. The house was cute, the neighbors were friendly, and the beach was fantastic.

There was a lot to do in the area. When we weren't at the beach, we were walking around Lavallette, trying the different restaurants, enjoying the boardwalk at Seaside Heights, playing mini golf, watching the sun set over the bay, or taking our dog to Island Beach State Park (where leashed dogs are welcome). The donut shop at the end of the street was a favorite stop on our walk to the beach in the mornings. We loved that the house is in a quiet area, with so much to do within a short drive.

We had a relaxing and fun-filled week, and would stay here again.

Cute place to rent for a beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this rental very much. It was clean and functional. Having a washing machine and dryer is key. we did not have to bring down tons of clothing and towels etc. We washed as we needed. The Neighbors were all very nice. Short trip to the beach and bay. Great internet connection. We would definitely rent again!!!

Cute, cozy and clean!

  • 4 of 5

My family had a wonderful week at the beach. This house is too cute! We slept 3 adults, 3 kids and a German Shepard comfortably. The location is prime with the bay steps away and the ocean a 5 minute walk up the block. We definitely would recommend bringing extra fans to circulate the air conditioning but we did stay during one of the hottest weeks of the summer. As first time tenants we were very impressed and would happily rent this home again next season.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. As far as the air conditioning, its been efficient and cold enough for us, but here are some tips to keep the house extra cool: (1) lower the living room AC to the lowest setting, 60 degrees; (2) put the AC speed on high; (3) put the living room ceiling fan on its highest speed to circulate the cold air; (4) keep bedroom doors open to make sure the cold air gets in the bedrooms; (5) put on all the ceiling fans in the house, again to circulate the cold air.

Basic Rates:
* Peak Season (Late June-August): $1,880 /week.
* Off-Peak (May, June, September): $590 - $1,490 /week.

This is a separate charge from rent, does not go to the owner, but is certainly worth it for renters.
