About John Gross

I have been so fortunate to have raised my family in this wonderful community in this beatiful home. Ocean Grove provides a wonderful family setting with everything one could imagine. As a former Mayor of this community, I am proud of what this community has become and now I invite you to come and experieince for a short time what our family has grown to love over our lifetime.

John Gross purchased this house in 1992

Why John Gross chose Jersey Shore

Our home is located on one of the most beuatiful, well kept and friendliest blocks in Ocean Grove. It is just 300 feet to the beach and a 3 minute walk to the downtown business district. I chose our home to raise my wonderful family, pictured above, and they will attest to its special place in their hearts.

What makes this house unique

This home, once a summer hotel with 17 rooms, was converted to a single family home when we purchased the property in 1992. We performed a complete renovation over the next 10 years and recently re-freshened every room.

My favorite spaces in our home include each of three porches overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, the eat in family kitchen on the first floor, each of the two master bedroom suites and the third floor manhatten style loft.

Other Comments

I finally have time to write to you and thank you for one of the best vacations our family has had. Your house in Ocean Grove was wonderful, and suited our family's needs perfectly. It had the right amount of beds, so that everyone was comfortable, a large enough dining room for all of us to enjoy family meals together, and an ideal location near the beach and town. Ocean Grove was a very fine quiet and historical community to visit and it's unique history made the location even more interesting . The amenities you provided were just right. It was a pleasure working with you both . We are not sure of our plans for next year at this time, but I personally would love to return if we can coordinate all of our schedules again. I will have to let you know , but please keep us in mind.

The home as well as home owners Joe and Kory could not have been more accomidating to my friends and I this past weekend. The house is perfectly located; we were able to make a quick walk to Asbury Park and the house is basically on the beach. Great house for a large group or people looking for a relaxing weekend away.

Westchester County, NY

This is a fabulous property. Located half a block from the beach.

  • 5 of 5

It's a Wonderful House with many bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 3 porches from which you can see the beach. It's a half block from the beach. So convenient to just walk down the street with the children to the beach, come back to the house for lunch, back to the beach. It's also a very short walk into town with ice cream shops and gift shops and restaurants. The house has everything you need for cooking including an upstairs large room with giant TV and bar and another kitchen in addition to a Full House. The owner is very receptive to all suggestions and very nice to deal with. We highly recommend it. We were there with grandparents parents and grandchildren and all had a wonderful time.

Fantastic Beach Week

  • 5 of 5

I shared the house with 4 generations of family. We all enjoyed the week! The house is lovely with plenty of room for everyone. It is very comfortable with three great porches, and fenced front yard. It is so close to the beach that taking young children to and fro was a breeze. Having the cute little downtown in walking distance was a plus for the rainy days, too. I look forward to spending more time at the Philadelphia House! Thanks, Kory, John, and John, you were all very helpful and accommodating.

Spacious House Steps Away from the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Philadelphia House for a weekend in July 2016. The house was perfect for our group of 10 girls (and had ample room for more). The beautiful Ocean Grove beach was a 2 minute walk away, and the Asbury Park boardwalk and nightlife were a 15 minute walk up the beach. The house itself had two kitchens, multiple bedrooms and sitting rooms, 4 bathrooms (all with shower), and our favorite, a large family room with bar adjacent to the balcony on the 3rd floor. In fact, there are 3 balconies, plus a deck and Adirondack chairs on the front lawn, so we had plenty of space to enjoy the sunshine.

The owner John and local contact Kory were very responsive to any questions or needs we had. Definitely recommend this house for a large family or group looking for easy beach access and space to relax in!!!
