About Ken Peake
We bought this house when our kids arrived, and have had great summers in Ocean Grove. We go year round to walk on the beach and relax. It is a short walk to the beach, and the kids can play in the garden. It is perfect for a family with kids, One of our favorite renters are grandparents who came for 4 years with their kids and grandkids. The house is full of color.

Porch evenings and beach days
We loved our stay here in Ocean Grove: we spent every morning or afternoon at the beach and every evening sitting on the porch reading and chatting with neighbors and passersby. I didn't realize how nice it would be to be a 10 minute walk to beach instead of schlepping in the car. (We have a beach cart, which makes it even easier.)
It rained one day of our visit, but the kids played games from the well-stocked game shelf and the house was snug and comfy. The kitchen is well appointed, and we grilled most nights. (Bring bug spray for humid nights: the mosquitoes can be active for a couple hours in the evenings).
Do your grocery shopping at Wegman's on your way in since there aren't a lot of nearby shopping options. Overall a lovely trip.
We had a wonderful time!
This charming, old and well maintained house was just as pictured. My family and I rented it for the week of the 4th of July. To use my daughters words, it is a “super cute and cozy” house that was close to the beach, little shopping and restaurants in Ocean Grove. We loved sitting on the porch in the evenings and meeting neighbors, who are very sweet and nice. At some point we had our friends over and the house was big enough to accommodate all of us: 4 adults and 3 kids. Both Ken and Virginia were very helpful and prompt when it came to communication. We had a wonderful time. Loved the town! The location is great! Would recommend to anyone going to Ocean Grove.
Great house, very well equipped.
We stayed here this past August with our two kids. This is our fourth summer in Ocean Grove and the first summer in this house -- it is by far the best house we have stayed in so far. It is comfortable and spacious enough for a family of four, plus additional guests and their children. The atmosphere and air circulation in the house is light and airy, with a wonderful eclectic decor. It is the most well equipped house I have ever rented -- with a well stocked kitchen of pots/pans/dinnerware/cooking and baking tools, a video and CD library for the TV and stereo.
Ocean Grove is a beautiful Beach town on the Jersey Shore, listed in the historic Register for its lovely Victorian houses. It is unspoiled and family friendly, with shops, restaurants, boardwalk, and lovely beach. Great for small kids, and lots to do in the area.
