About Suzanne

My wife and her family had been coming to this same beach for over 30 years when we had the opportunity to purchase this cottage. We love the beach and the family-friendly Ocean Beach Surft Club U1 community. We hope you love our beach as much as we do!

Suzanne purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Suzanne chose Ocean Beach I

The residential community is very friendly. The beach is never very crowded. Being so close to the beach the kids are able to run back and forth to the house on their own.

I loved staying at this cottage! Truly just steps from the beautiful beach, I was lulled to sleep at night by the sounds of the waves through the window, and could get to the beach to see the morning sunrise in seconds. Although there is really not much of an outdoor area to hang out, the benches on the beach are close enough to be a backyard. The beds were very comfortable. This house is in walking distance to two nice BYOB restaurants: Ohana Grill and Runners, and to the liquor store as well. The cottage is a clean, cozy, basic beach house. Although there is not an enclosed outdoor shower, there is an outdoor shower at the back of the house to use for hosing off sand. Suzanne and Andrew were so kind and easy and pleasant to communicate with. I hope to stay here again!

Exceeded our expectations.

  • 4 of 5

We thought we would escape to the beach. And this tiny home did not disappoint. The Ocean Beach surf club is an idyllic spot--a pristine, community-managed beach, friendly staff and members. This home is well-organized, so four of us--two parents, two teens--fit comfortably. We even had a few overnight guests. What surprised us is how much better we all felt here, at peace, a quiet joy. Each of our family and guests felt there is just something special about this little nook, good karma. We left refreshed, optimistic, grateful, renewed. There were only a few shortcomings. First and most important, the pullout sofa is great seating, but it requires a much better mattress, since the home is advertised as sleeping six. My husband and I slept on it once and it is painful. The handle of the microwave was off when we arrived, we used it rarely and tried to gently pry it open. Two lamps in the front room failed to light, we tried to move bulbs around to no avail. Everything else worked great. I love that the shower-head can be hand-held. My daughters didn't fight because the eldest loved the big bottom bunk while the youngest had tons of headroom above. They were dubious, but ended up falling in love with the place. In the end, the location is simply magical. On our last night, eight people joined us for dinner, we cooked fresh fish and shrimp on the grill and brought our paper plates laden with food out to our "beach camp." Overall, it was a perfect week. Thanks, Suzanne and Andrew!

Owner's Response: We are very happy that you felt the same connection with the beach that we do at Ocean Beach. Sorry to hear about your issues with light bulbs and the microwave. Repairs were made within 48 hours of our being notified by the next renter. Wish that you had contacted us while you were at the cottage. Pullout sofa was replaced in 2016 to improve seating and sleeping comfort. Will check if additional sleep comfort improvements can be made. Thanks for your stay at the Jersey Shore!

Cozy cottage steps away from beach

  • 4 of 5

Affordable cozy cottage with everything you can desire. We love the convenience of being only three houses down from beach. Owners were very accommodating and helpful. Would gladly stay again with my family of four.

This cottage was a wonderful place for our family of four. The location was awesome being so close to the beach.

Also walking distance to ice cream and nearby eateries. Enough parking for both cars. The air conditioner works great too!

The cottage was clean and well kept upon arrival.

Thank you so much Suzanne and Andrew!

We will be back.
