About the property

nice, neat and clean condo - close to beach, playground, restaurants, shopping

Want a relaxing summer vacation or fall getaway? This is the perfect location. Our third floor condo (NO ELEVATOR) is in a quiet corner situated on the dividing streets of two towns: Avalon and Stone Harbor, NJ. They are safe and well maintained summer resort towns, which have a low key and relaxed atmosphere. Their wide beaches and natural dunes are peaceful, and manned by lifeguards from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Together the towns of Avalon and Stone Harbor make up what is known as the 7-mile island.

Our condo building is situated one block from the beach and across the street from a lovely open field, tennis and basketball courts, skateboarding ramps and a playground. We are also within walking distance to many shops, restaurants, and miniature golf. Other attractions within Avalon and Stone Harbor include fireworks displays, free movie nights, children’s camps, designated bike lanes, movie theaters, water sports and fishing. There is certainly something here for everyone.

Keywords: Location is convenient for walking to lots of places - relaxing too

About JO

Our family likes to visit Avalon as often as we can, however, since we live in Cincy, it is not around the corner. We like Avalon and Stone Harbor because they are safe and well maintained summer resort towns with a relaxing atmosphere. There is something to do for all members of our family.

JO purchased this condo in 2005

Why JO chose South NJ Shore

My parents owned this condo before me. Since I liked the location and enjoyed the condo and activities in Avalon and Stone Harbor so much ... I couldn't resist the opportunity to purchase it.

What makes this condo unique

One thing that makes this property unique is that it has a lot of open space surrounding it. The condo is across the street from a playground, tennis courts, and an open field. This openness allows a straight view to the ocean from the balcony.

Lovely vacation in Avalon NJ at the Merrimack

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing for 25 years at the Merrimack in Avalon NJ. We stayed in unit 303 for about 20 years and love it so much we won't go any place else. The unit is spacious and we can enjoy lovely sunsets from the bedroom windows and see the surf from the covered deck. The unit is well equipped and always clean! You can't beat the location as its on the beach block and an easy walk to downtown Stone Harbor shopping. My husband likes to fish he has the ocean on one side and the bay on the other. The heated swimming pool is very enjoyable too. Many restaurants are within walking distance so if you prefer to eat out and not drive, you can. If you prefer to eat in, they have gas grills for your use and Buds market is only two blocks away.

Quiet, Clean, and Family Friendly

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked into this condo, we were thrilled! This two bedroom condo had ample space for the 4 people in our group to be comfortable. Parking is available with this unit! There is plenty of closet and storage space for everything you might need to bring with you. (Don't bring too much...there are even toys and games available!) The kitchen is stocked and all appliances were working beautifully! We were able to bake, boil (in the kitchen), and bbq (on the outdoor grill.) The beach is very close! When it got too hot to be on the beach, the pool was a welcome break. Not only can you see the ocean and swimming pool from the covered patio, we were able to see the fireworks from this upper floor location. The owners have an outdoor table available for your use on this covered patio. This is not always included with other condos. Please know there are no elevators, but the stairs are an easy climb. If you are looking for rest and relaxation, this is the perfect place!

Perfect place for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a great memorial day weekend here. Was the perfect location. Close enough to all the shops, beach, food, etc but still nestled away to enjoy some quiet time. Fantastic park across the street and on the beach block. Can't beat it. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

We found the condo as described, it was clean, the kitchen well equipped and the beds very comfortable. It was so relaxing to sit on the covered patio overlooking the ocean and swimming pool. We will come back again!

Absolutely Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this unit for years and absolutely loved it. It is spacious, clean and well appointed. The condo building has a pool and is located on the beach block. Our small children loved the beautiful beach, the playground across the street, and we love the fact that we can walk everywhere! If you are a family with small children, this will be the ideal unit for your family. Enjoy!
