About John Short
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 newly decorated, well appointed, maintained and cleaned on a regular basis.
John Short purchased this House in 2002
Why John Short chose Avalon
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.
What makes this House unique
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!)

Clean, peaceful, spacious, property with reverse living area that presents sunset views of the bay.
Our family enjoyed our stay at this homey rental property in July. It was clean, modern, well equipped and had a spacious open living area. Additionally there are sizable 2nd floor decks for lounging at those times we were not beach bound. The street was quiet with only occasional traffic. There is a wooded property between this home and the bay that gave it a tranquil secluded feeling. The supplies were well thought out - from utensils to televisions we did not have trouble finding whatever we needed.
A Great Family Vacation
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.
Thanks so much for your wonderful review. We are happy to know you were pleased with our house and amenities. Hope to see you back again soon.
Wonderful vacation home
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!
Debbie, Thanks so much for your great review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at our vacation home. We appreciate your comments.
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.
Robin, Thanks so much for your terrific review. We put a lot of thought into making our place comfortable and it is nice to know it is well received. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again.
Fabulous House, Quiet Location & Stunning Sunsets
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!
Gail, Thank you so much for submitting such a terrific review. It means a lot to us to know that you and your family were pleased with our house. "see you next summer".
Great House, Great Location
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!!
Thank you very much for a terrific review. We sincerely appreciate your comments. I think it is a big help, for future renters, to read "real life" experiences. We will look foward to seeing you next July.
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 and restaurants, 6 blocks away, 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 a few blocks from the beach (with direct access).
