I have been coming to Ocean Grove for over 30 years and have been fortunate enough to have owned homes in Ocean Grove for almost 20 years. I will respond to your request as quickly as possible (usually within the hour) and am just as responsive when you rent my home. I do everything I can to make sure my guests have a great stay. I always note to renters that the house is a true century home and that some of the floors may be uneven or creak. In spite of its little quirks, it is an amazing place to stay and the house is filled with charm and character. Our home is also a couple of blocks away from Asbury Park which has just been named COOLEST SMALL TOWN IN AMERICA. We are ALL very excited about the rebirth of this great town. Please contact me with any questions prior to booking. I do take PAYPAL but will have to charge you the 2.9% fee (which at times gets to be an additional $200+ in extra fees). I am fine to take a personal check via snail mail. Thanks again for your interest and if my home isn't right for you, I hope you find another gem in Ocean Grove to stay at. Best, Annie Hekker Weiss PS: Ocean Grove -- was recently rated by FODOR's Travel as one of the top 10 beaches in the world! It is a beautiful and charming town, renowned for the highest percentage of Victorian homes of any town in the country. You can walk any where in this quaint, family-oriented little slice of heaven, an oasis only 60 miles from New York City. From cute shops and casual dining, to beach and board walk activities and a wide range of live entertainment at the famous 'Great Auditorium' and clubs and night life in neighboring Asbury Park.

    Just got back from a 3 night stay at this beautiful house in Ocean Grove! We have rented several times in OG and this was one of our favorite houses! The house is clean, beautifully decorated and super cozy with a really nice kitchen! The location was so close to the beach and the view from the second floor was beautiful! We only rented the first two floors so I can only imagine what the view is like from the 3rd! I highly recommend this property for larger groups or even big families that like to have plenty of bedrooms for everyone. 24 April 2012 - 11:13:02

    Went to Ocean Grove a few years ago to a B&B with my girlfriend. We both fell in love with the town & beach. Victorian house lined streets, friendly residents, & a very nice beach. It's only a little less than 1.5hr drive from NYC or you can take the train to Asbury Park train station & then 5 min cab to Ocean Grove. There is a boardwalk that connects Asbury Park & Ocean Grove which you can take strolls on in the morning or night. There are bars & restaurants in the Asbury Park section of boardwalk along with miniature golf, video arcade, & kid's water park. The house is very nice & so close to the beach. The 2nd floor bedrooms are great because of the balconies for early morning coffee & newspaper. The screen doors just let the ocean breeze flow through. The other bedrooms are also nice & most have a full bathroom attached. Kitchen is modern & plenty of room for big meals in the dining room. Living room has enough seating for large groups. Cable TV & wireless will let everyone be entertained & connected to the world if you so choose. There is a propane grill to cook up a feast & outdoor seating to wind down after a long day at the beach. There are also beach chairs & bikes to use if you don't have them. This is the second time that I have rented from Paul & I'm planning on making it a yearly tradition to stay at his rental. He is extremely nice & is willing to work with you to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. So don't hesitate or you might miss renting this place in one of the Jersey shores hidden gems! 30 May 2012 - 20:45:13

    This house is just beautiful. It is decorated so nicely with a fresh new look. Each of the 5 bedrooms has its own full bath so it was great for our big gathering as no one felt on top of each other. The kitchen is big and open so we could all talk as we prepped for our meals. We also loved being so very close to the beach. I feel that we went to the beach more because it was only steps away. The ocean views are fantastic and it was great to have private porches on the top floor. The owner, Annie, was great to work with. Extremely prompt and so helpful. 18 June 2015 - 14:08:21

    This is a beautiful home steps from the beach, boardwalk and Asbury Park. The house is lovely and well furnished and the owner is extremely accommodating, helpful, and friendly. The house was clean, laid out/furnished as advertised, and in great shape overall. Would stay again. 07 January 2016 - 01:40:00

    We relaxed the moment we got here! Cozy, clean and homey! Very proud to recommend this to everyone . 31 August 2016 - 16:15:14

    The house was just as pictured with room enough for our whole extended family of 11 with the two children having their own rooms. The house was lovely, furnished with a beach motif and immaculately maintained. Annie was a pleasure to work with and really helped us feel right at home with all her special touches and easy availability. The property was ideally located within walking distance to everything in Ocean Grove as well as Asbury Park. It is such a quaint town with such an interesting history and I would recommend this property to all my friends who want an interesting and relaxing beach vacation. I hope that I can return again! 02 July 2016 - 23:32:40

    This house was a perfect setup for a large group reunion. Having 2 kitchens and 2 living spaces made it amazingly helpful during mealtime prep and when some of the group needed a quiet space to relax. Annie was easy to work with and very hospitable. The location was great, steps from the boardwalk and beach and close to the lively shops in Asbury Park. I would recommend this house for large groups without hesitation! Thanks Annie!! 16 May 2016 - 19:42:56

    I just rented the main house with my family last week and we had a wonderful experience. Annie, the owner, is a delight to deal with...kind, helpful and goes out of her way to make your stay amazing. Every bedroom was clean and nicely decorated, each with its own bathroom which was so great! We loved that there was a big dining table for group dinners and there was plenty of space in the kitchen for all of our groceries, etc. We so enjoyed the front porch and the beach was a half a block away. The house is also a short walking distance to Asbury Park's fantastic restaurants and nightlife. We cannot wait to stay here again next year! -Kristen 30 August 2015 - 18:52:59

    The location is wonderful -- ocean block! The accommodations were comfortable, the decor was up-to-date with a very pleasant "beachy" feel. With our family reunion, it was perfect for each couple to have their own bedroom/bathroom. The first floor suite was a definite plus for grandma and grandpa! The availability of the 3rd floor apartment sealed the deal. It was so helpful to have plenty of towels and beach towels available. All in all, a truly special place. Annie was delightful in all respects -- prompt, pleasant, responsive, available, kind! Wish we could go every year! 09 July 2015 - 12:40:13

    We had an absolutely wonderful time during our stay in Ocean Grove! The house was perfect in every way for our family of 6 adults and 4 children. Beginning with the delightful porch with the fabulous ocean view, on into the lovely and comfortable living room, the wonderful new gourmet kitchen, the inviting, private and restful bedrooms (each with its own bathroom - no waiting here!), the house exceeded our expectations in every way! The decorating and furnishings were very period-authentic and everything one could possibly need was provided. The owner was great to work with and we cannot thank him enough for sharing this lovely gem with us. We can't wait to return! 20 June 2010 - 22:19:58

    We had a lovely time at this B&B and the owners couldn't be more helpful. The home is newly renovated and large enough for a large family. The Kitchen is new and a great place to cook. The second floor porch was a haven in the heat and offers a great view of the ocean and the neighborhood. If you are a lover of Ocean Grove this place is a winner. 15 June 2011 - 00:22:09

    We recently has a wonderful week with family at this property. The house is beautiful and well-maintained. The porch was a lovely place to sit and sip our morning coffee or evening glass of wine. We used the kitchen for quite a bit of cooking and it was perfect for all of our needs. The dining area is large and there is plenty of room for big families to sit down and eat a meal together. Each of the bedrooms has its own unique charm and were decorated beautifully. The beds were all so comfy to sleep in as well! We loved the proximity to the beach!! Every day we would grab the chairs (provided at the house) and head down the one block to the beautiful, pristine beach. Also within walking distance is the cute downtown area where there are places to get an in ice cream or lunch, shop in cute boutiques, or just take a stroll. We all had an amazing time and the day we left we were already talking about coming back sometime soon and staying for a longer period of time. Between the total relaxation that this place provides and the array of fun things to do, we realized that we needed to give ourselves more time on our next visit here. Hopefully, that will be soon!! 16 July 2011 - 13:16:42

    I can't praise this house and our hosts enough. The house is charming, cozy and incredibly well stocked. We've rented homes before where you were barely left toilet paper. The kitchen is modern and large .... Having a bathroom for each bedroom was a luxury for a beach rental . Annie, the owner, was accessible at all times; always with a quick, positive response. We have already shared the information about this house with friends and look forward to renting it again . 19 September 2014 - 01:02:47

    Our large extended family had great fun at this comfy home by the sea....literally down the block. Rooms had their attached baths, lots of towels for beach, front porch was delightful, especially for the grandmothers. Air conditioners and fans all worked fine..and on the rainy day, sitting on the porch reading was lovely. Walking distance to downtown and the Auditorium, as well as being close to Asbury were all pluses. Annie was a considerate owner. 20 July 2015 - 00:36:32

    This was our first visit to Ocean Grove and we loved it! The house was perfect for our family of three adult sons and their girlfriends. Lots of room and plenty of bathrooms. The location is perfect, so close to the beach. The porches are so wonderful! Great gathering spot for everyone. The porch off the two front bedrooms was such a nice feature. I would leave the door open to the bedroom porch and hear the ocean at night!!So relaxing! And there aren't any mosquitoes in Ocean Grove! Unbelievable coming from upstate New York. Annie, the owner, was so wonderful to work with. She was so helpful and really went out of her way to make our stay special, and it was! I will go back to Ocean Grove and this property again in the future. 09 August 2015 - 12:17:59

    We spent a long weekend at Annie's house in Ocean Grove with 10 friends from high school. The house was lovely and in a perfect location. It is right near the beach and close to both Asbury Park and the center of Ocean Grove. Annie was so attentive to our needs and so easy to deal with. She even left flowers for us and a lovely bottle of wine! I would highly recommend this house for a pleasant stay in Ocean Grove. 19 September 2016 - 18:14:15
  17. Annie W.
    Great decor and porches, big enough for a large family, ocean breezes fill the house, so close to the beach, great views of the ocean, plenty of bathrooms (8 showers!) and Asbury Park a couple of blocks away. 11 September 2017 - 05:38:00
  18. Lisa F.
    The home was so lovely and had enough room and all that was needed for a girl friend get away. It was a perfect location to the beach and down town. Annie, who we rented from, was so helpful and went above and beyond with making us feel comfortable. Loved it! 18 January 2017 - 00:30:00

    This house is beautiful, for sure. Tons of space, bedrooms, bathrooms. And the location - my gosh. Steps to the beach. But the best part of the house was the owner - she was so helpful, accommodating, responsive. I booked this house for a full month and housed 7 of my employees there while on location for an event. It was the perfect place to offer some shared areas and space to cook but also plenty of bedrooms to give these folks some privacy at night. Would be an excellent spot for a big family reunion. We were really impressed and how quickly the owner took care of things when we had questions or needed help with something in the house. 08 December 2016 - 15:57:57
  20. My family gathered at Annie's house for a Thanksgiving reunion and found the house comfortable and well- equipped. We had a relaxing time, slept well in the great beds and enjoyed the beach even in the cool weather! It was the perfect place for us and we highly recommend it to other families looking for a homey spot to reconnect and relax. Though we didn't need to call on her for any problems, Annie was available to help in any way and was most welcoming and hospitable. 01 December 2016 - 01:19:41
