About the property

This quaint Victorian home, built circa 1900, combines original architectural details with modern amenities. The house has central air conditioning and gets tons of sunlight on a corner lot with northern and western exposures.

The wide front porch (brand new in 2015) leads into a foyer with an open staircase. Upstairs are two bedrooms - a queen bed in one and two full beds in the other - each with two windows, a generous closet and a ceiling fan. Also upstairs is a large full bathroom with a tub shower, linen closet and window seat. The third bedroom, on the main floor, contains three windows, a queen bed and a small dresser. It is separated from the foyer and dining room with double doors for privacy.

The open-layout living and dining rooms are fully furnished with two sofas, a TV and CD player, a full bookshelf, and a dining table seating eight. The large eat-in kitchen has a dishwasher and washer/dryer and opens onto a private patio with an outdoor dining table and four chairs. A shed contains extra folding chairs for relaxing on the patio as well as beach chairs and gear.

The house is centrally located within a 10-15 minute walk of the beach, downtown Ocean Grove, restaurants and shops in Asbury Park and Bradley Beach, and the Asbury and Bradley train stations.

No pets. No smoking.

About Sarah Cox

My husband and I live and work in Manhattan and love coming to Ocean Grove throughout the year to escape city life. We spend lots of time on the beach during the summer, but any time of year we enjoy walking around town, dining at restaurants in Asbury Park and Bradley Beach, or watching a film at the Showplace Cinema.

Sarah Cox purchased this house in 2013

Why Sarah Cox chose Ocean Grove

I fell in love with Ocean Grove when I first visited the town in 2012. The Victorian homes and neighborly culture reminded me of the town in Maryland where I grew up. I can easily get to Ocean Grove from NYC by public transit, and my family in Philadelphia and D.C. are within a few hours' drive.

What makes this house unique

I bought this house because the large kitchen and open layout are perfect for hosting friends and family. The location is ideal because I can walk to the beach, the train, or shops and restaurants all within 10-15 minutes.

A comfortable home close to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Ocean Grove. The house was roomy and comfortable with ample amenities: a small back yard for grilling, linens and beach towels, a gracious front porch to relax on, quiet neighborhood.

Entertained family (including grandchildren) with ease for a great beach vacation.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I truly enjoyed our stay at Sarah’s house. The house was very clean and extremely equipped with anything you need for your stay. Nice walking distance to the beach, Asbury Park and the board walk, and town. The neighbors were very nice. Parking was good, part of the experience. I will highly recommend this place. Sarah was prompt to respond to our texts. Very clean and comfortable. P.S. Bring your own DVDs if your tv watchers. We were not. Plenty of games there.

One more reason to love Ocean Grove

  • 5 of 5

Ocean Grove is our 1st choice when going to the beach whether for the day or longer. In the past when it was just the three of us we would stay at a bed & breakfast. This time since we had out-of-town family coming, we decided to rent a house for our crew. The accommodations were more than we expected -- what a lovely home! It was plenty spacious for the eight of us and we really enjoyed our stay. What I particularly liked was all the extras: from the bikes to the barbecue; the beach badges to the fully equipped kitchen. The house/home was very clean and well presented. We knew it was a little far from the beach but we managed. The porch with the rockers was a nice touch and the quaint backyard is equally inviting. The owner was very prompt in responding to any and all of my inquiries as I was a little hesitant this being my first time going through VRBO. I would definitely recommend this rental property to others considering it for their stay in Ocean Grove. And we would certainly stay here again when the time comes.
