Ocean Grove House Rental Photos and Description

7 bedrooms + Loft, 4.5 baths, sleeps 14

This exquisite one-of-a-kind circa 1870 Queen Anne Victorian manor is located on the second beach block, just steps from the prime shopping and dining district. The Lyric Manor - recognized as an historically significant Jersey Shore residence - sits on a double-sized corner lot and boasts over 4,300 square feet of indoor living space. Having undergone an extensive renovation completed in 2010, the home is configured with 7 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms (each with custom marble and ceramic tile work), 10’ ceilings, formal dining and living rooms, a library, a grand main hallway with fireplace, an elegant marble entry-foyer, an expansive chef’s kitchen (with stainless steel appliances, high-end glass tiling, and Silestone counter tops), a 3-zoned central heating and cooling system, Juliet balconies, hardwood floors, custom crown moldings and wainscoting, antique/historic stained glass and leaded glass windows, a stately mahogany porch, and many more premium features. This is a rare opportunity to stay in one of Ocean Grove’s premiere historic residences.

The BEST house in Ocean Grove!

  • 5 of 5

The Lyric Manor is simply the BEST house in Ocean Grove. We have rented this property four years in a row now and look forward to returning each summer. Michael and Viet, the owners, are the kindest and most responsive people that we have ever encountered with a rental. No detail was spared with their renovation of the Lyric Manor, there is no other house that can compare. We cannot wait to return for another beautiful experience next year!

Beautiful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

The lyric manor was absolutely beautiful and well maintained. It provided an absolutely perfect place for my fiancé and myself to get ready for our big day. Michael and Viet were gracious hosts and showed us around when we checked in and out. They were very quick to respond to any questions or issues that we had.

OMG what a house!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful weekend in Ocean Grove. Nothing has been overlooked in this enormous, beautiful and comfortable home (they even had a pack and play for our little boy). Bedrooms are 2Xs larger than any of the previous homes we have rented in OG. We have found our home away from home at the beach. Only drawback was that we couldn't stay for longer. Already booked for next summer! Michael and Viet are the most gracious hosts. Thanks, Sebastian

Wonderful, large modern house steps to the shore

  • 5 of 5

Great stay for a long week away from home, with lots of room for guests and family. Side yard was a nice respite as well.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house - easily housed 7 adults and 3 small kids. We rented it at the end of the year (including NYE) and had a great experience. Owners were very accommodating and clear on what needs to happen checking in and checking out. Nice location - though we were there off-peak - with plenty of restaurants and places to shop close by. The only thing (which, frankly was minor) is that there isn't a larger backyard - though that has more to do with my friends and I enjoying sitting outside than any problem with the house or owners. Easy 5 stars!

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

Little did I know that upon opening the door to Lyric Manor, I would find paradise! The décor is impeccable....everything from the ethereal stained-glass windows to the outdoor gazebo and hammock. The living room is comfortable and the perfect meeting place to relax and enjoy with your guests. Gourmet cooking can very easily be achieved in the huge, modern and fully equipped kitchen. The dining room is luxurious and conducive to family-style or romantic meals. As you walk up the majestic staircase, you will find the seven bedrooms-- large and airy....each with its own unique theme. Sleep tight and well in the comfy beds. On the third floor there is a loft for game playing-- a perfect hideout for the kids! Extras include a beautiful washer/dryer, a private office, 5 modern bathrooms, lots of flat-screen TVs, and a gas barbeque grill.

The house is immaculate and in a perfect location....a block from the beach and a half block from the quaint town with lots of charming shops and a variety of eateries. The owner of Lyric Manor provides quintessential customer service and is always just a phone call away. If you are interested in finding paradise, Lyric Manor is the place to be. Thank you, Lyric Manor, for making our special celebration a treasured memory!

This is a beach house that could compete with any 5-star hotel!

Car: not necessary

***Voted one of the '15 BEST BEACHES for 2014' by Fodor's Travel***

From Fodor's:

'Towns like Ocean Grove have worked hard to rebuild their little bit of paradise and they want to share it with you. Established in 1869, Victorian architecture is still a major draw of the area as is the beach and boardwalk. The downtown district—with cute shops and restaurants—is just two blocks from the famed boardwalk. But, you go to the Shore for the beach and Ocean Grove’s is pristine. It’s popular with families for its annual sandcastle and kite-flying contests, volleyball games, and boogey board races. Ocean Grove is a one-hour drive from Manhattan and Philadelphia, or you can take the train.'

From the Owner:

Ocean Grove is located on the Atlantic Ocean nestled between Asbury Park to the north and Bradley Beach to the south on the Jersey Shore. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Ocean Grove is noted for its abundant examples of Victorian architecture, sprawling 'concession free' boardwalk, pristine beaches, and charming shopping/dining district.

Ocean Grove’s renowned “Great Auditorium,” which seats over 6,000 audience members, continues to be the focus of cultural life in Ocean Grove. Among the concerts filling the summer schedule are the acclaimed Summer Stars chamber music programs, which bring some of the finest classical musicians from Philadelphia and New York each Thursday night in July and early August. Saturday nights feature popular entertainment, including appearances by Johnny Mathis, ABBA, Linda Eder, the Beach Boys, and comedian Bill Cosby.
