8 BR, Perfect for Family Reunions!
3200 Sqft Vacation Home hosted by Carol
15 Guests . 8 Bedrooms . 4 Bathrooms


One of the largest private homes in Ocean Grove, my house features 8 bedrooms and four full bathrooms. A large living room, a flexible dining room, two kitchens, and two porches give your group plenty of space. And ... the house is only 1.5 blocks from the beach.

A gas fireplace in the living room makes this home a cozy retreat even in the winter. Linens, towels, and a wide variety of spices and oils are provided, so just bring your clothes and food for a great vacation on the shore!

Lovely, spacious home furnished with guest comfort in mind -- my house is the perfect place for your family reunion or group get-away. Fully air-conditioned. I have been renting this house since 2007 and have had hundreds of satisfied guests and dozens of 5-star reviews from my other advertising venues.

3200 sq. ft property, including two fully equipped kitchens, large dining room, living room with gas fireplace, den, eight bedrooms (4 queen, 2 single, 2 twin), and four full bathrooms. Two porches and a gas grill outside.

Note, the house goes almost to the lot line on three sides, so there is no back yard or any space for a large outdoor party. We spend our outside time on the lovely porch.

My next door neighbor is available to help should you have any questions or problems, and I am always available via phone, text, or email.

Ocean Grove is a quiet oasis on the Jersey Shore. We're just a block and half from the boardwalk and beach -- and what a great beach! Three blocks away is the Great Auditorium with wonderful musical events all summer (Beach Boys, Abba....). Just a short walk brings you to the hip restaurants and bars of Asbury Park. Downtown Ocean Grove is filled with quaint shops and eateries. And the whole family will love the ice cream from Day's just a few blocks away.

The train from NYC Penn Station stops at Asbury Park, about a 1/2 mile walk or taxi ride from the house. There is also a bus from NYC to Main St. in Ocean Grove. Once here with your groceries, you will not need a car. And there is a grocery delivery service, so you could take the train or bus to town and then order in your groceries.

We provide plenty of beach chairs, umbrellas, and beach towels. All sheets and towels are provided and beds will be made up for you upon arrival. We supply paper towels, toilet paper, soaps and detergents, lots of dishes, glassware, silverware, table linens, pots, pans, waffle maker, lobster pot -- all is ready for you to move in and enjoy!

There is a 3-night minimum for all rentals. No exceptions.

My grandparents on both sides were innkeepers -- my father's parents ran a lodge on Lake Mascoma in New Hampshire, and my mother's parents had a boarding house in Ocean Grove. My husband and I spend our summers in the Grove now that we're both retired from the University of Illinois. I sing in the Great Auditorium Choir and enjoy volunteering with the Ladies' Auxiliary. We both love trying out all the great restaurants within walking distance of the house and, of course, swimming at the beach.
