About The Owner

We are two couples who love the beach and getting away from the daily grind. We found and created 'Ocean View', our second home in Ocean Grove, NJ, as a getaway close-to-home vacation spot for us. We share our house with guests who also enjoy the quiet, family beach community of Ocean Grove.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Jersey Shore

We were looking for a beach house when we came across a wonderful house in need of some tender loving care (meaning a thorough renovation). We didn't intend that kind of project, but we fell in love with the house!! We love what we have created and enjoy sharing our home with other families who love the beach, a quiet town, more beach, great restaurants, and more.

What makes this house unique

Do stuff. Or just relax. Eat out in one of a thousand restaurants nearby. Or cook in the brand new granite/stainless kitchen. Sleep comfortably in one of the 5 comfortably furnished bedrooms. Or get up early for a run on the boardwalk. Play tennis. Or go golfing. Catch some rays on the porch. Or go bowling or to the movies if it rains. Go to the outlet malls (if you must!). Or watch a game on one 4 high def TVs. invite your kids and their kids. Or enjoy the quiet by yourselves.

Homeowner is the best!

  • 5 of 5

This owner is an absolute pleasure to deal with and will bend over backwards to make sure your stay is absolutely perfect. He responds to questions and concerns almost immediately and works hard to provide everything you'll need for an ideal beach week. No wonder he has so many repeat renters!

Lovely vacation home - Exactly as described

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a terrific week-long stay at this lovely Victorian style Ocean Grove home. This was our first stay in Ocean Grove -- the house and town were exactly as pictured and described. The owner checked in with us when we first arrived - even helped bring our luggage into the house; immediately responded when we experienced a window a/c problem; and checked in before we left to ask if we needed any help. Inside and out, the property was beautifully maintained. What we really appreciated were the beach chairs and cart that we were able to use during our stay. I felt like we had the best of both worlds -- the customer service and ease of a 5 star hotel with the comfort of the family home. We'll definitely be back!

Such An Enjoyable Time

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of four generations came from AZ, TX & KS for a nearby wedding. We feel so fortunate to have found this house. Ocean View is exactly as described, very clean and well maintained in a nice, quiet neighborhood. The bedrooms are spacious with a sink in each bedroom, and the bathroom on each floor has been updated (a great shower too). Although we didn't cook often, the kitchen was very complete, beautifully updated and the washer and dryer were very much appreciated. We enjoyed taking the beach cart of chairs, umbrella, and cooler, along with our free beach passes, to the beach which was a block and half away. Some of the adults showed the kids how to build a sandcastle with the sand toys provided while others just enjoyed relaxing or walking along the shore. We all walked to downtown Ocean Grove about 3 blocks away several times and enjoyed shopping at the unique shops and eating at some of the hometown restaurants. A special treat was having ice cream in the evenings at one of the shops. Several of us went to NYC for day trips. One day we took the nearby train and another day we drove to Staten Island which is just a little over an hour away. We rode on the free Staten Island ferry in to the city where we enjoyed seeing all the NYC sights. After returning to Ocean Grove in the evening, it was nice to sit out on the front porch and relax and visit more. We also appreciated the large dining room table for more conversation while some of us worked on a large puzzle which was provided. The amenities in the house were great, something for everyone. We will have wonderful memories of Ocean Grove and being here together in this charming house.

The best yet!

  • 5 of 5

What a suprise when we walked into our beach house. It was so much more than we expected. The kitchen was beautiful as well as the rest of the house. We were so grateful for the thoughtfulness put into the house. For example. Beach passes, beach blankets and towels, sand toys for the grandchildren. Best was the beach cart with all the beach chairs. Not having to pack all those things was a treat. . We especially enjoyed the porch when it rained. It was nice to be with all our family in such a lovely setting. Walking around OG is one of my favorite things to do. I came home rested. We plan on being regulars. We have already reserved for next year.

A great find!

  • 5 of 5

What a nice find! Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this newly renovated house. The kitchen, was beautiful as well as functional, and the showers had a nice modern twist. It was nice to sit our big family down at the dinner table, for meals as well as "game night." Most importantly, the house was clean. It was also within easy walking distance to nearby attractions, including the beach.
