About Jamie

The Bay Head House was established in the late 1800's as one of the first accomodations in this wonderful Historic seaside village. In 2010, The Bay Head House was completely renovated/restored to accomodate visitors as it has for over 100 years. We designed the home to have all of the luxuries you could ask for and retaining the design features and style of the turn of the century.

Jamie purchased this house in 2005

Why Jamie chose Jersey Shore

Having grown up in the area, Bay Head has always stood out as a town that offered a feel of days gone by. Being involved in real estate and construction, we thought it to be a great undertaking to restore this magnificent property to fit back with the other magnificent homes that line Bay Head's streets. We loved the idea of bringing The Bay Head House new life and ensure that it can be used for guests of this great town for another century. With many of the Bed and Breakfast's being converted to single family homes and not many accomodations otherwise, we thought The Bay Head House would fill a need for the town and at the same time let us use the home for our own family reunions and corporate retreats.

What makes this house unique

There is a wide array of activities that one can undertake while staying in this wonderful town. A simple stroll through this quaint downtown for one block for a stop at Mueller's bakery, proceed the extra block to the beach to pick up some seaglass and watch the surf & sunrise. The activities that we love best are bike rides through town, surfing, sailing, kayaking, bird watching, fishing and relaxing on the front porch! All of which can be done within a stones throw of the house.

Dream wedding at the Bay Head House!

  • 5 of 5

i had my daughters wedding here this past weekend. We looked for a house that we could have the reception in for about 45 people and this home fit the bill. The best part was that Michele Tracey, the property manager, is also a wedding planner. She was extraordinary!!! She took care of every detail and many I hadn't even thought of. Food was from Joe Leones-delicious!!! She also recommended the photographer, Jeanne Paradise King. She has already sent us proofs and they are absolutely stunning! Her attention to detail is phenomenal! I really can't say enough how perfect this wedding was thanks to Michele Tracey. I would highly recommend her and the house is beautiful. I had 12 people staying in the house for 4 nights and we had a blast. We had the reception, then an after party and the next day a brunch. Perfect, perfect, perfect!!! I can't thank Michele enough for giving Jen and Billy their dream wedding!!

Bay Head House

  • 5 of 5

The house is roomy, well equipped, and has a wonderful wrap-around porch where we spent lots of time. When we needed a crib and extra blankets they were delivered to us cheerfully. We had a multigeneration family reunion and the house accomodated us all splendidly. We loved our stay, and only regretted that there was no fenced-in yard for our collection of toddlers. We recommend the house and its spacious kitchen to any group with slightly older children.

Our entire family of 16; five families, 9 adults and 7 children ages 16 months to 12 years gathered together at The Bayhead House to celebrate Christmas together. It was the perfect house and everyone enjoyed being there. Enough bedrooms and bathrooms to go around and plenty of living space as well. The kitchen is fabulous, big enough for several people to work in at the same time and the huge center island was a great place to set up a buffet. The proximity of the cheese shop, the bakery and the beach(the weather was warm enough for walks) was a bonus. As was the terrific catered dinner from Joe Leone's in Point Pleasant. Would certainly consider a repeat stay in this lovely house.

Pictures simply don't do this exquisite home justice!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I recently rented the Bayhead House to host a group of about 20 women celebrating an upcoming marriage. This house looked amazing online yet somehow managed to exceed our expectations!! The downstairs is such a wonderful welcoming open layout that it is basically impossible to document accurately in photos b/c it's simply just TOO large to get all at once! We were blown away when we stepped through the door. The kitchen alone is reason enough to rent this property, especially for a large group... everyone always congregates in the kitchen anyway, and this one is made for that with the enormous island, table and ample counter space. The bedrooms are all gorgeous as well and we basically got lost every time we went upstairs b/c there are so many rooms and bathrooms!!! The location of the house is unbeatable as well with the Wine & Cheese shop next door, a world famous bakery across the street, and ocean and lake views from the balconies. On top of all this, Michele was beyond accommodating to all of our needs and requests and went over and above to make sure our stay was perfect. She is truly a gracious hostess! Simply cannot say enough good things about this home. I hope to have the opportunity to stay here again soon!

Wedding Week at the Bay Head House

  • 5 of 5

We found this exceptional seaside home to be a perfect place for our wedding. It provided everything we needed: 1.Accommodations: a beautiful home which was roomy enough to house our guests and provide all the amenities needed. The location is perfect, with proximity to the Parkway and train station.

2. Wedding: We chose the Wedding package, and we were so happy we did! It included our wonderful wedding planner- Michele Tracey and photographer -Jeanne King. From housing the rehearsal dinner to the wedding celebration, the Bay Head House created the event we dreamed of.

Perfect summer vacation for families with or without kids

  • 5 of 5

Perfect summer vacation for our 4 families with 9 kids

We had an amazing vacation down at The Bay Head House. We had a total of 17 people including 9 kids ranging from 5 to 10 years old and had a perfect week. Between the beach, the boardwalk, Hoffman's ice cream, miniature golf and riding bikes they were occupied all week long. The house was gorgeous, spacious and so clean. We were able to cook and clean in the huge kitchen and there was plenty of room to set up a video game room (we brought Wii/Xbox from home) in the evenings so the adults could enjoy some adult time on the porch. The owners were so sweet and kind. They stopped in on arrival and checked in to see if we needed anything. There were beautiful fresh flowers set up in every bathroom and bedroom. We watched the fireworks right from the beach where we walked in. We strolled through the antique shops in Point Pleasant Beach. It was a perfect escape from NY state and even better the ride was only 2 hours! We will be back for sure! Thank you.

King Diaz DeGeorge and Johnston families.
