A note from the owner...

Hi I am Annie and thank you for your interest in Ocean Grove. I have been coming to Ocean Grove for over 30 years and have been fortunate enough to have owned homes in Ocean Grove for almost 20 years.

I will respond to your request as quickly as possible (usually within the hour) and am just as responsive when you rent my home. I do everything I can to make sure my guests have a great stay. I always note to renters that the house is a true century home and that some of the floors may be uneven or creak. In spite of its little quirks, it is an amazing place to stay and the house is filled with charm and character.

Our home is also a couple of blocks away from Asbury Park which has just been named COOLEST SMALL TOWN IN AMERICA. We are ALL very excited about the rebirth of this great town.

Please contact me with any questions prior to booking. I do take PAYPAL but will have to charge you the 2.9% fee (which at times gets to be an additional $200+ in extra fees). I am fine to take a personal check via snail mail.

Thanks again for your interest and if my home isn't right for you, I hope you find another gem in Ocean Grove to stay at.

Best,

Annie Hekker Weiss

PS:

Ocean Grove -- was recently rated by FODOR's Travel as one of the top 10 beaches in the world! It is a beautiful and charming town, renowned for the highest percentage of Victorian homes of any town in the country. You can walk any where in this quaint, family-oriented little slice of heaven, an oasis only 60 miles from New York City. From cute shops and casual dining, to beach and board walk activities and a wide range of live entertainment at the famous 'Great Auditorium' and clubs and night life in neighboring Asbury Park.

I wish I could give it more than 5 stars

  • 5 of 5

Great decor and porches, big enough for a large family, ocean breezes fill the house, so close to the beach, great views of the ocean, plenty of bathrooms (8 showers!) and Asbury Park a couple of blocks away.

Warm, lovely home. Perfect for close friends get away!

  • 5 of 5

The home was so lovely and had enough room and all that was needed for a girl friend get away. It was a perfect location to the beach and down town. Annie, who we rented from, was so helpful and went above and beyond with making us feel comfortable. Loved it!

Incredible stay - hope to be back next year!

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful, for sure. Tons of space, bedrooms, bathrooms. And the location - my gosh. Steps to the beach. But the best part of the house was the owner - she was so helpful, accommodating, responsive. I booked this house for a full month and housed 7 of my employees there while on location for an event. It was the perfect place to offer some shared areas and space to cook but also plenty of bedrooms to give these folks some privacy at night. Would be an excellent spot for a big family reunion. We were really impressed and how quickly the owner took care of things when we had questions or needed help with something in the house.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

My family gathered at Annie's house for a Thanksgiving reunion and found the house comfortable and well- equipped. We had a relaxing time, slept well in the great beds and enjoyed the beach even in the cool weather! It was the perfect place for us and we highly recommend it to other families looking for a homey spot to reconnect and relax. Though we didn't need to call on her for any problems, Annie was available to help in any way and was most welcoming and hospitable.

Lovely Long Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend at Annie's house in Ocean Grove with 10 friends from high school. The house was lovely and in a perfect location. It is right near the beach and close to both Asbury Park and the center of Ocean Grove. Annie was so attentive to our needs and so easy to deal with. She even left flowers for us and a lovely bottle of wine! I would highly recommend this house for a pleasant stay in Ocean Grove.
