About Diane Stevenson
My wife and I live in suburban CT. A computer professional during the week, I love to play Mr. Fix-it on the weekends. We come down to Bay Head when we can and sometimes our kids join us. Always new memories to be made.
Diane Stevenson purchased this House in 2010
Why Diane Stevenson chose Bay Head
My family has been vacationing in Bay Head for generations. Its beautiful beaches and numerous activities such as tennis, biking, shopping, restaurants, and the boardwalk keeps our entire family busy and content. As the children got older, they were able to enjoy the freedom of exploring the town on bike or foot safely. Plus its close proximity to NYC, Philadelphia and Newark Airport means friends and family can visit for a day or two making it easy to share in the memories. Bayhead has a wonderful history and reputation for its family friendly atmosphere. If you are looking for an exciting night life, this is NOT the place.
What makes this House unique
The property is uniquely situated adjoining the town playing fields (great for active kids), a few houses from the yacht club, and a short walk to the beautiful beach, public tennis courts, shopping, playground, and of course Mueller's Bakery. Even the library is only a block away. The back patio is very private, and the front porch offers views of the Marina and sunsets over the bay. For the young and restless, the boardwalk in Point Pleasant is only a 10 minute drive. For the hungry, Teresa's is a great BYOB restaurant two blocks away. For those needing some privacy and quiet, both the spacious first floor and second floor master bedrooms offer a seating area and TV. Something for all generations.

Comfortable, attractive, relatively affordable( for Bay Head) place to stay
We are long-time renters in Bay Head who were planning a large family reunion for a special birthday. We needed to rent a second home to house all the guests. This house exceeded our expectations. The five bedrooms were set up perfectly for our group. The three queen bed rooms were exceptionally large and the two twin bed rooms were just fine. The kitchen was modern and well equipped and the sun room and living room nicely furnished. The rear patio was comfortable and private. It was also fun to be near the Yacht Club which is an active place. We heard some good live music in the late afternoon, which was not too loud or obtrusive. The house is convenient to the town of Bay Head and an easy walk to the beach, where our other rental was located. We would recommend this house to anyone seeking to explore Bay Head's charm while also expecting modern conveniences.
We are so glad you found the house so accommodating for your special birthday. Looks can be deceiving. The house looks so modest from the front, but is so comfortable and spacious inside. And Bay Head is a pretty special place. We hope you will consider the house in your future plans.
Great house and location
The house had everything we needed for a great beach vacation. Diane was responsive and accommodating. We would stay again.
comfortable stay in charming bay head
The owners were very accommodating and granted us a late check out and welcomed my niece's service dog. The home was comfortable and well stocked. As stated in the listing, it is larger than it appears. It is an easy walk to the beach and to Mueller's Bakery.
Thank you for the kind review. It gives us joy to know our guests had a positive experience.
Fantastic family beach vacation!
We had a terrific week at the Stevenson's home in Bay Head. The house was perfect for our 3 generations of family members - a lot of living space, well-fitted kitchen, and overall very comfortable. The short walk to the beach was easy, and the beaches themselves were beautiful. We appreciated having beach badges and chairs available and made good use of them. The owners were very accessible and helpful, and the information about the house and town were excellent. We'd come back in a heartbeat!
Thank you for the rave review. We think the house is pretty awesome for our three generations as well.
We hope to welcome you back!
We had a wonderful time at the Stephenson's beach house. We were in Bay Head for a family wedding and easily walked to the beach and the reception at the yacht club. The listing was accurate and the house was spacious and comfortable. My mom, my brother's family and my sister's family all stayed and loved the place.
The walk to the beach was charming, the surf was up, and everything was nearby. Don't miss the crumb cake and other goodies from famous Mueller's Bakery. We also enjoyed the real NJ pizza at Nonno Bruno's in Point Pleasant Beach, and breakfast at the newly reopened OB diner. My sister and I loved our hair and makeup that was done by the friendly gals at Salon Mulan in Point Pleasant. Thanks for the lifetime of memories.
We are so delighted you enjoyed the home. We think it's pretty awesome, too!
And thanks for sharing all of your suggestions for places to eat and things to do. We hope to welcome you back sometime.
Wonderful home, beautiful beach!
We (2 families, each with 3 small children ranging in ages from newborn to 6 years) stayed here over July 4, 2014 and had a wonderful time. We found the owners very accommodating and easy to work with and the house perfect for 2 families - plenty of private sleeping space and an open kitchen/dining area that was wonderful for shared time. The house was just a quick 5-7 min walk (on an adorable walking trail) to the gorgeous beach. Having never spent time in Bay Head, we loved the town--so quaint and pretty. Definitely recommend the bakery in town - delicious! Thanks for a wonderful stay, we hope to return!
