Avon House Rental Photos and Description

We are happy to tell you that we have finished our restoration after Sandy's unwelcome visit in October of 2012. All new appliances, upholstered furniture, refinished hardwood floors and new rugs are installed, and the lawn and garden are as pretty as ever. The property is only available SORRY - WE ARE SOLD OUT FOR 2016 - for the month of July, 2016 with a two week minimum stay. The weekly rate is $4250, or $8500 for two weeks. The initial period is 6/28 through July 11; the second period is from 7/14 through 7/28, but we can try to adapt to your needs.

This centrally air conditioned traditional Bay Head house dates from 1937 and offers a complete vacation venue. There are four bedrooms (which sleep six), two full baths and an outdoor shower, There is a screened front porch, redone in art deco style in 2014, and a broad back deck for al fresco dining. The kitchen is new in 2014, and the master bath was restored in 2015, both to the art deco style of the 1930's. A paneled full size living room, separate dining room and dedicated breakfast room with a full view of the professionally designed garden complete the floor plan. The home is immaculate and fully furnished. Amenities include wi-fi, , Sonos sound, NetFlix and Amazon Prime programming, flat screen tv and dvd, an outdoor gas grill, ample linens and kitchen accessories. Most rooms have ceiling fans if you choose to live without a/c. A gardener maintains the garden, and weekly lawn service and all utilities and four beach badges are included. At the end of your stay, just leave the laundry and clean up to us.

There is a lot within walking distance. The private beach is two blocks, with an upscale restaurant about five blocks from home. Across the street from the restaurant is a sandwich/breakfast place, plus get a newspaper or a bottle of wine! It's about four short blocks from there to Bay Head center - a bakery, wine, spirits and cheese shop and a number of gift and women's wear shops. Another six or so blocks is the train station with service north to New York's Penn Station. Overall, it's about a mile from the house to the train station, a flat and easy walk past pretty Twilight Lake.

About .

My wife and I live in the Atlanta area. Our most recent all-summer tenant left us after nine years to buy another house of their own just up the street! We miss them, as they came to love this house as much as we do.

. purchased this house in 1961

Why . chose Bay Head

This location suits our lives very well. The house has been in the family for more than 50 years. Bay Head has the small town flavor that we grew up with, and we can walk easily to a restaurant, the bakery and get the morning paper. And if we are ambitious that day, it's a mile to the train station where New York City and points in between are great to visit.

What makes this house unique

We love the way this house provides a cozy and welcoming environment, where you can mix the sand and the surf with civilized living.

Where do you live?

It's always the perfect break at Bay Head!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with 5 adults and had many fantastic nights relaxing on the sun drenched deck while barbecuing dinner.

Being only a couple of minutes walk from the beach (with included beach badges) and handy for the small town made it so easy for us, giving us the option of sandy walks, dips in the sea or wandering to the shops to pick up a treat - either a new top or something sweet depending on who was shopping!

The house is so comfortable with everything we needed already provided and super accommodating owners who are delightful to deal with.

Such a lovely place, easy to escape on the train from New York, recharge & take a break from the city.
