Great house and town

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely & Bay Head is a charming town. Easy walk to beach & town. Bryan was responsive and answered any questions we had in regards to the house and Bay Head area. We enjoyed our stay!

Cottage in Bayhead

  • 4 of 5

I have rented this cottage several times from Bryan. He is very accommodating. The cottage is very private, clean and comfortable. Its is a good location -close to beach, little shops and restaurants in town. We enjoy going to Bayhead very much.

We loved it. Great property!

  • 4 of 5

The property was great! Loved the location. Great backyard and deck for entertaining. Nice wrap around porch to relax on during a thunderstorm. And kitchen/family room were perfect. My only complaint is the shower door in the master bath. Fortunately I love outdoor showers so used that the whole week.

3 weeks vacation

  • 4 of 5

Very spacious house with a great yard. No complaints about the home at all!

Downside is location. Bay Ave is incredibly busy. One cannot sleep without shutting the windows due to the traffic speeding by. Crossing the street was a concern since we have "tweens" that are responsible enough to cross yet still not developed enough to always make the right decisions. Cars definitely drive over the limit.

Also regarding location, the first couple of nights we enjoyed the Church bells, but since we were there for 3 weeks, they became annoying. The Church is less than one block to the house, so the bells were incredibly loud. The charm wore off quickly.

If you are a beach person, it is a good location, but more if you have a bike than walking. There are better house locations that are closer to the beach. If you want to join the pool or go to the library and play ground, the house is in excellent walking distance to those. The house is also very close to the town dump, which was convenient.

The cottage is quaint and good for either a couple or ppl who need an extension to the house. It was redone nicely, but the bathroom needs a sink with one faucet as opposed to the dated one with one cold tap and one hot tap. You need to be under 5'5" without having to crouch in the outside shower bc the shower head is too low. Inside shower is like a standing coffin. It is overpriced by a few hundred. The cottage is more of a place to sleep and shower, not a place you would want to hang out for extended periods of time.

Considering the expense of these rentals, we were surprised we had to pay for cleaning upon departure. We've never experienced a rental where the owner didn't cover the cost.

Bayhead itself doesn't have any good restaurants, but the good thing is you are very close to Point Pleasant, which has many restaurants. Bayhead is a pretty town, but if I was to rent down the shore again, Spring Lake is a much more beautiful town with great shopping and restaurants.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your very favorable (4 of 5) review. But do let me point out some minor errors. The front house property is located on Bridge Ave not Bay Ave. The 25 mph speed limit is actually quite strictly enforced. All intersections are clearly lined for pedestrian crossing & most have temporary signs telling drivers to stop for pedestrians in cross walks. There are traffic lights at the busier intersections of Lake Ave & Main Ave (Rt. 35) to facilitate pedestrian crossing. The church bells sound twice a day at noon & 5 PM for 120 seconds at a decibel level of 85 that's not too overwhelming. There is no town "dump" in BayHead. All refuse is removed to western Ocean County & disposed of there. The respondant was referring to the town recycling facility located at the rear of Evergreen Park at 216 Park Ave about four blocks from the house. The outdoor shower head at the Cottage is the standard 76" height. The inside shower stall is a standard size 34" x 34" fiberglass unit. Standard accepted practice at the shore (to keep costs down) is for the occupant to leave the rental as they got it. As it turned out this occupant incurred a cleaning charge of $35.00 (one hour) for the Cottage & $140.00 for the main house. Certtinly not a burden considering the three weeks of occupancy. Bay Head does have a small commercial area, but besides Dorcas's lunch & light dinners & Central Market's prepared foods The Grenville & Theresa's South are highly rated establishments serving very fine cuisine. Indeed Spring Lake is a lovely town with a more expansive commercial district, but you would never get an equivalent rental as close to the beach for the the price of Bay Head.

Great week in Bay Head

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at 134 Bridge! The house is great, especially the porch and yard and deck out back. The house has everything you need for the beach and is a short walk. There are also plenty of restaurants within walking distance such as Shore Fresh Seafood, Theresa's and Dorcas. The owner were very nice, easy to get in touch with and provided all of the info that we needed.

Alls good in Bay Head

  • 5 of 5

I've rented the cottage on this property several times over the past few years. I found the property and met the owners through Craigslist, which we all know is a risky propersition for both parties. The property was exactly as described in the ad. Small, quaint, immacculately clean and in good repair. Well stocked with housewares with all of the amenities listed were both functional and available. I found the owners of the property to be honorable as well as gracious without being intrusive. Their residence is also on the property.We were quick to strike a deal and it was done with a hand shake on more than one occasion. This year I was hesitant to rent a shore property post "Sandy" but I called the owner of the property and he assured me that the cottage once again was clean and in good repair. Upon inspection it had been completely cleaned, renovated complete with new rugs and furniture. Once again the deal was done with a hand shake and no regrets. I have always enjoyed my stays here at 134 Bridge St. and hope to rent here in years to come.
