TOTALLY BOOKED FOR 2016...Incredible sunsets!!! ..Start your day with wonderful views of the bay and wetlands. In the evening, relax on the partially covered wrap-around deck to enjoy incredible sunsets. (see pictures) This is a single house on an extra wide lot for quiet and privacy. It is newly decorated, well stocked and offers a complete host of amenities to make for a perfect vacation. You'll have direct access, at the end of our street, to one of Avalon's best, life guard protected, beaches ( just a 3 block walk away). The tennis courts, basketball courts and playground are a block away. Our street is quiet and safe for children. The floor plan is large and open and ideal for families. Our upside-down house has a lovely master bedroom on the 2nd floor with its own bath and sliding doors to a private deck..There are three large bedrooms on the first floor. We provide beach chairs & umbrellas. A garage is provided for bikes, a small car or beach your stuff. You will love the house, location, views and the excellent vacation value.
We live in the western suburbs of Philadelphia. We use the house extensively ourselves so it has all the amenities of a family home.
Our house is nicelyl decorated and appointed, maintained and cleaned on a regular basis.
John Short purchased this house in 2002
We chose the house because of the bay view, the quiet street and the over-sized lot. We liked the upside-down layout to enhanse the view. While many homes in Avalon are duplexes, twins or townhouses, we wanted the privacy of a single home.
Upside-down house benefit. Did you know that on a 'buggy day' at the shore, the bugs do not come to the second floor.(really!)
We throughly enjoyed this house.
The property,the view and the emenities were all great. This was a good location for us and our children.
Thanks for providing my family and I with such lovely accommodations for our 2 week vacation in Avalon. Your well maintained and beautifully decorated home was so spacious and comfortable. Upon arrival, we immediately felt right "at home". Loved the open flow between kitchen, dining area, living room and deck. It gave us plenty of space to gather in the evening to watch TV, play games, or quietly read. One of my fondest memories is dining on the deck and being in awe of the sunset each evening. As far as supplies are concerned, you "left no stone unturned". To my delight, a fully equipped kitchen and to my kids delight a garage filled with every imaginable piece of beach gear. Needless to say our 2 week stay flew by and no one was eager to leave on departure day. Thanks again for a great holiday and we look forward to returning soon again.
A very comfortable, well appointed vacation home. The house is clean and well maintained with a great deck with views of the bay. The property is in a quiet road and it is an easy walk to the beach and the center of Avalon.
A great place to stay!
This beautiful rental home exceeded our expectations on all fronts. While situated in a quiet neighborhood, it is also convenient to the center of town. The beach is within walking distance which is a huge plus. There is also a trolley only two blocks away which will take you into either Avalon or Stone Harbor with their many great restaurants and excellent shopping. We loved the bay front deck with great views of wetlands and also show stopping sunsets! The house is very comfortable, spacious and well stocked. We love this part of the Jersey Shore, having spent many summers in Avalon enjoying family vacations. This is a perfect spot and we will definitely be coming back.
We had not vacationed at the Jersey shore for 4 years due to school and sports commitments, and the house which we had rented in the past in Avalon was booked for the season. It had been listed on Homeaway and we found this house while searching the website. WHAT A FIND! The house is on a quiet backstreet but not too far from the town center. Everything, including the beach, is in walking distance. The house was clean and tastefully decorated. The rooms were spacious and comfortable, and having 2.5 baths was a plus! We grilled on the porch at nights and then enjoyed cocktails while watching the AMAZING SUNSETS over the bay – so picturesque! It was like owning a private home at the shore. The owner called us several times, checking to see if we needed anything and if we were happy with our stay (which we were). Wish we could have stayed longer!
Our vacation in Avalon this year was the best. There was seven of us ( two grandparents, daughter and son-in-law and three grandchildren(16,19 and 22)) We all enjoyed our stay. We have been going to the outer banks for twenty years as a family and didn't realize what we were missing here in NJ. The house was beautiful and well maintained. It met all of our needs and more. The views were absolutely beautiful from the deck. The lovely wide beach was a good three blocks away, but we brought bikes which were able to store in the garage (which was a huge plus). It was also great having an Acme only a few miles away and a well stocked grocery store in town. All in all everything was great and we had a great time.
We are looking forward to return again next year!!
This was THE perfect house for our family vacation. The open layout of the living room/kitchen to the large wrap around deck made the accommodations a dream. And even though the beach was close by, often times, we were perfectly content spending a quiet, peaceful, relaxing afternoon on the deck.
The owners couldn’t be more accommodating and attentive to our needs. And the quiet, family-friendly nearby towns of Avalon and Stone Harbor offered many restaurant choices.
In addition, I always look for technology when I travel, so the wireless internet access, large screen HD TV and DVR was exactly what we needed.
The vacation was perfect for our family of 8, including a mother in her 80’s, her children in their 50’s plus one grandchild in his 20’s. There was always something for everyone.
I highly recommend this home.
Avalon was voted 'The Best Beach Resort' in the Mid-Atlantic. . It is known for its beautiful beaches, its uncrowded atmosphere and its friendly people. Avalon has plenty of stores for shopping and there are no parking meters! There is 'lots' to do in Avalon and it is a great place for families. We overlook the bay and are three blocks from the beach (with direct access). Downtown with stores, restaurants, bars and 'things to do' is six blocks away.
Golf: The Avalon area has a terrific selection of golf courses(12 or more) both 9 and 18 hole, suited for all playing levels. There are also a number of driving ranges.
Tennis: There are both soft and hard courts in the park only one block away Make a reservations or walk-on.
Fishing; Fish off the beach or pedestrian jetty. You can rent small fishing boats and equipment at several marinas..
