"SURF HAVEN" IS A RENOVATED CENTURY VICTORIAN HOME AND FORMER BED & BREAKFAST THAT IS IDEAL FOR SUMMER VACATIONS, FAMILY HOLIDAYS, WEDDINGS, GIRLS WEEKENDS OR RETREATS. Book now as we have many early and return bookings from last season and summer. It is important to note that Ocean Grove is celebrating its 150 anniversary in 2019 with events happening all summer long so please book early!
Grab your friends and family and take over this former B&B in a quiet family neighborhood for the summer or off-season event! Ocean Grove is a charming and quiet town with amazing beaches and SURF HAVEN is a home that truly has it all.
It is located just steps to beach (1st beach block!), has 8 bedrooms & 6 bathrooms, 2 outdoor showers, 2 kitchens, 3 porches with panoramic ocean views, wifi, a washer/dryer, access to a beach locker (no lugging chairs to the beach!), 8 beach badges, two blocks from the Great Auditorium and 3 blocks away from the many five star restaurants in Asbury Park.
I only rent full weeks in the summer with check-in (3pm) and check out (10am) on Fridays. I am firm on Friday being my check in/out days since it is very hard to park on Saturday and Sunday during the summer months. This home, like 90% of homes on the first beach block in Ocean Grove, does not have a driveway for parking. It is street parking only. Off Season rentals require a 3-day minimum stay.
IMPORTANT TO NOTE: IF YOU ARE A BOISTEROUS GROUP, THIS HOME IS UNFORTUNATELY NOT SUITED FOR YOU. THIS IS A VERY QUIET (and quaint!) NEIGHBORHOOD & THE HOMES ARE CLOSE TOGETHER. THERE IS ALSO A STRICT NOISE ORDINANCE AND A PORTION OF YOUR SECURITY MAY NEED TO BE WITHHELD IF IT IS VIOLATED.
No pets and no proms please. Min age for renters is 28.
SLEEPS 15 PEOPLE (MAX #) - There are 8 comfortable bedrooms (five of them have their own full bath). 6 full bathrooms and 2 outdoor showers -this makes this an ideal rental when seeking privacy within your large group.
RENT WITH CONFIDENCE: Even though I don't currently run it as a B&B (it was a running B&B when it was originally purchased), I decided to maintain my B&B and mercantile license. With that said, I must adhere to all fire/safety codes and the house meets (and exceeds) all of the required standards. This is important when considering a rental since many owners renting their properties are not required by law to meet these standards. All of these certificates are posted in the house.

A note from the owner...
Hi I am Annie and thank you for your interest in the quiet town of Ocean Grove. I have been coming to Ocean Grove for well 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 $400+ in extra fees!!). I am fine to take VENMO or 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.
