WELCOME TO THE HYDRANGEA HOUSE NJ OF OCEAN GROVE! The minute you walk into this immaculate, well appointed home, you'll know you're at the beach. From the comfortable furnishings, to the huge wrap around porch, to the outdoor shower, everything you need for a completely relaxing beach vacation is at your disposal.

What makes our Hydrangea House special?

o BEACH LOCKER--contains 6 chairs and umbrella. Even though we are only four blocks to the beach, the locker is the difference between a carefree stroll to the beach and one loaded down with paraphernalia. We know. We didn't always have a locker. Now that we do, we will never give it up!

o FOUR BEACH PASSES included-- because we like to get to the beach as soon as we arrive as we assume you do too. ($160 value)

o BEACH TOWELS provided--who wants to bring those on vacation? All linens and bath towels included, too. (And we pride ourselves on high quality towels and bed linens. All 100% cotton...soft and comfortable.)

o OUTDOOR SHOWER--private, and open to the blue sky. Hot and cold water--get rid of beach sand and emerge refreshed for your evening on the front porch or on the town. And, our shower connects to the first floor bathroom--how convenient is that?

o SURFING LESSONS--You'll find Summertime Surf located at the end of our street. Kids surfing, women's weekends, surfing for all. If we can help you connect with Summertime Surf, let us know.

o WALK EVERYWHERE--okay, you have to make that obligatory drive to Wegman's, but after that, you can park your car and not move it for the rest of the week if you like. Walk to the beach, walk to town, walk to Asbury Park (via boardwalk or PA Ave and over the footbridge), walk to Bradley Beach. Freedom!

o BEACH HOUSE GAMES--we have a closet full of them. Puzzles, Connect Four, Candy Land, Life. You name it.

o OUTDOOR DINING--because there's nothing like sitting on your spacious Ocean Grove front porch, having dinner and watching the world go by. Morning coffee is good there, too.

o COMFORTABLE BEDS, sofas and chairs--because we like comfortable upholstered goods ourselves, our furniture comes from Mitchell Gold, Crate and Barrel, and Shiffman bedding. And we use insanely comfortable, 100% Pima cotton sheets from LLBean, named the best sheets by a leading consumer magazine.

o BEACH LOCKER! Did we mention this vacation maker?

Just bring a toothbrush and a bathing suit!

Please note: Our rates are "all in." No charge for normal cleaning. (NJ Taxes are separate from our rental rate.)

In case you didn't know, Ocean Grove was named one of Fodor's 15 Best Beaches for 2014:

Ocean Grove, NJ, one of the Jersey Shore's finest year-round seaside resorts is known as 'the Jewel of the Jersey Shore.' Ocean Grove has the highest concentration of authentic Victorian architecture in the country. This national historic treasure offers one square mile of natural beauty, including pristine beaches, tree-lined streets, serene boardwalk and parks, music & lecture programs, unique eateries, and a quaint shopping district.

Only an hour’s drive from Manhattan (to the north) and 90 minutes from Philadelphia (to the south), Ocean Grove is a weekend, summer, and year-round destination for domestic and international travelers. Ocean Grove is also easily accessible by train and bus via New Jersey Transit.

Summertime in Ocean Grove is filled with arts and craft shows, giant flea markets, guided historical walking tours, house tours, performances by famous named artists at the legendary Great Auditorium and much more. The Ocean Grove Boardwalk connects to the Bradley Beach Boardwalk to the south and the beautiful and hopping Asbury Park Boardwalk to the north with its shops, restaurants, chic lounges, casual bars and other entertainment venues.

My Nana brought me with her to Ocean Grove for a vacation when I was a young teenager. That week in the the Grove made a big impression on me. Much later, when I was an adult, I learned that whenever my grandmother could put together the funds, she would spend a week in Ocean Grove and bring one of her grandchildren. She loved Ocean Grove right down to the tips of her very Catholic toes. (The hotel in which we stayed, the Grand Atlantic, is now a retirement home for Catholic nuns. Nana would like that.)

In 2004, now with my own young children in tow, we bought our home on Broadway. From the very beginning, even in the midst of multi-year restoration projects, our family and friends gathered here, relaxed and deeply enjoyed each others' company. This house, with it's bright welcoming spaces, provided places for groups to talk, play games, tell stories. And other spaces, to read quietly or take a nap. Low on technology, but high on relaxing atmosphere, we developed a treasure trove of great memories with friends and family.

Now that my kids are older and doing other things in the summer, we want to share our experience with others. Come to the Hydrangea House. Relax. Reconnect. Renew.
