About the property

Come explore the historic coastal town of Ocean Grove and stay at the historical Strandvue Grand Victorian Mansion

The Strandvue is a Grand Victorian Mansion located in the beautiful New Jersey Shore Town of Historic Ocean Grove. The Strandvue is a wonderful vacation location .

The furnished bedrooms have ample room to sleep 12 guests, but additional sleeping arrangements can be made on the first floor sleeper sofa, the third floor futon and two air mattresses. The Strandvue is only a few blocks from downtown Ocean Grove’s shops, restaurants and entertainment.

The Strandvue's sweeping 1400 square foot porch has unparalleled views of the ocean. Enjoy your morning cup of coffee and watch the sun rise over the ocean or just enjoy a happy hour cocktail. The entire porch is gated, so it's a great place to let the kids run around while you sit back and enjoy the beautiful scenery.

When you walk in you are greeted by Strandvue’s great Parlor. The parlor invites you to unwind and is a great space to play games or or simply sit quietly and read a book with a fabulously relaxing beach view. The parlor is also a great place to gather with friends and family. The room spans from the front of the house clear to the back of the home and is a great space for entertaining.

Wake up and have your coffee or tea in our spacious sunroom. Open the windows and let the cool ocean breeze in as you watch the sun rise over the ocean. This is the perfect place to relax after a long day at the beach or around town.

About Nancy

I grew up at the Jersey Shore and currently reside in Florida.

Nancy purchased this house in 1975

Why Nancy chose Ocean Grove

Strandvue has been in our family since 1975. For many years, it has been our base to enjoy the Jersey shore. We love to come here with our family and friends

What makes this house unique

From the nostalgic 4th of July parade, passing just out front; To walking the boardwalk on crisp fall mornings; To watching blustery winter storms with a cup of coffee from the 2nd floor sunroom; these can all be enjoyed from this beachside retreat. We love the community of Ocean Grove and you will too!! Just over an hour from Manhattan by train (Asbury Park) or ferry (Highlands) it is also the perfect location to enjoy a few days in New York City.

We were happy to be together at Strandvue, but not so happy with the house itself.

  • 2 of 5

My family spent almost two weeks at Strandvue and had a wonderful time being together under the same roof, however, there was so much deferred maintenance in this house that I wouldn't recommend it - especially for a family with small children.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed being together. This home was built in 1880. It has updated,new, beautiful bathrooms, gorgeous wood floors throughout and many many more upgrades, inside and out. It also has charm that cannot be bought. You are entitled to your opinion, however 2 stars compared to other guests 5 stars, tells the tale of your opinion not being accurate. Anyone who rents an Ocean Front home and closes all windows, blinds and shades was not going to enjoy a home, porch and view that this majestic property offers. Wish you a lovely rest of the year

Wonderful location with lots of space for a family group

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with lots of living space, plenty of bedrooms and nice bathrooms. Located right across from the beach and just 2 blocks from town, so we walked everywhere. Perfect for our large family group. The host was very responsive to inquiries. We would definitely stay again.

A great place for a get together of family or friends

  • 5 of 5

A great place for a get together of family or friends. It is a lovely presentation but the property does need some work on the inside. The rooms could use some updating, but the bathrooms are lovely. Everything is kept very clean and the appliances are in good working order. The location is fantastic and our contact person was very easy and pleasant to deal with. I would highly recommend it as long as you were not looking for a fancy bed-and-breakfast level furnishing.

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

My daughters bridal party used the Strandvue for the weekend of her wedding. The wedding was the Saturday of Labor Day weekend. Nancy couldn't have been more accommodating. The girls were able to get in early Friday morning after Nancy was able to rearrange cleaning crew. She answered all our questions immediately. The house was clean. It was a wonderful experience and Nancy was great to deal with!

Comfortable house, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

A thoroughly comfortable place to stay. The house is just as it appears in the photos. Manager was very responsive, although I can't say that we ran into any problems. This is no one's home, it is an income property, with the usual upsides (you don't have to worry about disarranging or mangling anyone's personal stuff ) and downsides of a house that no one actually lives in. A very comfortable place for a group holiday.

Great location and lovely area.

  • 4 of 5

Boxes of flooring in the living room upon arrival.. Property manager traveling. My husband had to move the heavy boxes. Cleaning crew walked in with a key while we still had another night in the house. My daughter was alone and because it was three men it frightened her.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and 4 stars! Only wish that new porch furniture had arrived prior to your stay so you could have enjoyed it. Amazon had given us incorrect delivery date. I did respond quickly even though travelling, I do have several handy people in the area that would have assisted. Again, I apologize for that inconvenience and the for the first time in 5 years, my trustworthy cleaning crew showing up on the wrong day.. Again appreciate the stars for the home & area!
