About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, offstreet parking, Close to BEACH!

Come stay at this new unit, rebuilt at a turn-of-the-century classic beach home. This apartment is located within easy walking distance of the beach on Park Place in the desirable North end.

This unit is perfect for small family getaways. We should know...we designed it for our small family! In the fall of 2007, we demolished the existing 2 bedroom apartment and rebuilt it as a 3 bedroom apartment. We choose this design because we wanted to be able to have separate bedrooms for us, our children and a guest. Although there is not much floor space, we think the unit is just perfect for a beach vacation - when you want to be outside anyway!

This unit includes just about everything you could want, right down to all the linens, cleaning supplies, kitchen extras and creature comforts. Whenever possible we use this unit for ourselves, so it is stocked and outfitted as such. Just like staying with family!

About Theresa Vaites

My husband and I have vacationed in Ocean City since childhood. My husband's family rented a couple of streets over on Brighton Place, so when we saw this property on the market, we knew it was 'the one!' We have three young children, so we try to supply and stock the home with everything a family needs. We also just experienced the passing of our beloved dog, Frosty, so we also understand how important the furry members of your family are!

Theresa Vaites purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Theresa Vaites chose South NJ Shore

We love the North End location. Our street is quiet but still near everything. We loved that we had the offstreet parking and that this property had two units so we also had an opportunity to use our vacation home!

What makes this apartment unique

We try to provide our guests everything they need for an enjoyable vacation.

Great location, Pet Friendly

  • 4 of 5

We definitely enjoyed our stay at this beach house overall. The highlights were the close proximity to the ocean (a couple of short blocks to the beach!), the fact that it is dog friendly (so appreciated and a rare find in OCNJ), and the impressive amount of available amenities in the house. Shower water pressure is great as well. The linens and towels could absolutely use an update but were adequate. The middle room bed is extremely creaky. The place is tiny, but this was well advertised in the description and was not a surprise. A family with kids stayed on the floor above us during the second half of the week and because there are hardwood floors it was not at all conducive to noise control. Great outdoor porch and couch but unfortunately the second floor stairwell blocks your view of the sidewalk--only problematic for the serious people-watchers. I also felt that the place overall could have been a bit cleaner in the "hard to reach" areas like behind the beds. As I said, overall a positive stay.

Very nice

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week! The apartment was very clean and inviting. We especially enjoyed the front porch area to enjoy morning coffee and evening wine. It was also nice having the extra beach items and we didn't have to walk far to the beach. The location was great. We had a few questions when we first got there- our phone call was returned in a very short period of time. Thank you very much! It was a most enjoyable week.

The perfect vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family of 6 plus our mini-dachshund. It is in a great location, just quick walk to the beach and boardwalk. The house was stocked with everything you could possibly need. The owner was great and easily reachable. We will absolutely stay here again the next time we visit OCNJ.

We enjoyed our stay this past week

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this apartment in the third week of September 2014 for a couple of days and was joined by my wife and three children (son -13 and two daughters 8 &10) in the later part of the week. Also, our Jack Russell Terrier wound up being a last-minute addition. The space is small, but well put together. The front room is a kitchen, living room and dining room all-in-one. The owners put some thought into the design and you will find that although the space is tight, everything has its place and the living space is actually very functional. For example, there is an island in the kitchen that serves as both a dining room table that can seat six, and an island to do prep work in the kitchen, or a desk to do work from on the computer. There is a large flat screen television anchored to the wall above the island, and after dinner some of the kids watched TV while other’s played board games on the table. The front room is adjacent to a front porch, which has a built in outdoor couch and a plenty of seating space. The overall effect is that even with five of us and a dog, there was plenty of room in the common area of the apartment.

Cable TV is available in the front room. Wi-Fi handled three Kindles, three iphones and a laptop often simultaneously with no lag time. The kids also enjoyed the Wi game system with plenty of choice on the games.

The bedrooms are full-sized and there are two full-sized well equipped updated bathrooms. The owners provided toiletries in the form of shampoo, conditioner, body wash and the like, sheets and linens for the beds and towels. Also, and a complete range of beach materials were left for our use including umbrellas, beach chairs and toys for the kids. All this means that you can pack like you are staying at a hotel, and still have all of the supplies you need for a week at the shore with the family.

Definitely recommended, we will be back next year for sure.

Summer/fall respite.

  • 4 of 5

Great centrally located vacation home. We didn't need to use our car other than to drive to Cape May to visit family. It is a very small place, which is detailed in the property description. So, it was fine for my husband and me with our two beagles, but might be a bit tight for any more than that. It afforded us immediate access to beach, boardwalk, great restaurants, etc, all on foot, and our pups loved the accommodations too. Be sure to go to 701 Mosaic, Arlene, Island Grill, and Spadaforas. We walked/rode bikes to every single one of them. If you want a place that frees you from relying on your car to get places, then this is the place.
