About JIm

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

JIm purchased this house in 1975

Why JIm 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.

A fantastic home

  • 5 of 5

My group of about 15 friends and spouses rented this amazing house for our 18th annual Euchre card tournament this September. Everybody raved about the house, the location, and the town. Also, the manager, Nancy, was a tremendous help both before and throughout or stay.

First, the location is spectacular. Ocean Grove is a wonderful town with lots of charm, and the house sits right on the beach, directly across from the boardwalk, fronting an entire block. Probably the best location in town. It really is as good as it looks.

I grew up in NJ and have been coming to various shore towns from Wildwood to Long Branch since I was a kid. Ocean Grove is special. And it's only an hour from Newark airport, which was great for our out of state people. Close for travelers, but it feels like another world from NYC, in the best possible way.

Second, the house, while a bit quirky in the bed and bathroom department, is incredible. Best of all is the gigantic front porch. We spent as much time as possible here, in daylight hours and at night. The view is unbeatable and the atmosphere is wonderful. There is a grill and you can grill on one end of the deck without smoke bothering people on the other end. There are three large tables and chairs and we routinely sat a dozen people there with room to spare.

The house is also HUGE and charming. A real antique, built in 1880 if I recall correctly. We slept 15 people without trouble, and during the days we didn't feel like we were on top of each other either. And staying in a place with so much evident personality was a real bonus.

One caveat: The Master Bedroom has a railroad bedroom off of it (not counted in the 5 listed rooms--that would make it six) and these rooms share a private bath, which itself is divided into one bath with just a toilet and one with just a shower and sink. Slightly odd but not a big issue for us. In a house with six beds (not including 2 sofabeds and 2 air mattresses) and four bathrooms, the quirks weren't a problem, and were more part of the charm of this vintage house.

Lastly, Nancy the manager was wonderful to deal with, answering our text-messaged questions and helping out with anything we needed. We had a package delivered to the house after we'd left and Nancy repacked and mailed it to us back home. Above and beyond the call of duty.

Overall, the Strandview was a highlight of our 18 years of getting together. We definitely want to return.

Great family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

The house which sits directly across the street from the beach is great. Good space for large get togethers. We had 24 eating dinner on Friday night without being crowded. Comfortable, relaxing, well maintained. Rental agent was accomadating and available when we had questions. This is a fabulous place to gather your 'whole' family for a summer celebration. House is accessible short walk to Asbury or Bradley Beach. One couple came by train to Asbury and walked over to the house. Plenty of nearby places to eat!

Very quaint victorian house right across from the beach - excellent view, and proximity from stores/restaurants if you might need those. View of the beach from the patio & the 2nd floor balcony is great. We were a large group (11 adults, 7 kids) and didnt have any problems with sleeping space.

We watched the 4th July parade & fireworks from the patio and the kids had a blast.

The property manager, Ms. N is extremely helpful and accommodating to any special requests.

Overall a great place to spend time - highly recommended to anyone plannning to spend a weekend (or more) on the central Jersey shore - expect to have a great experience.

Great for large family reunion

  • 5 of 5

I recently had a family reunion at the Strandvue and it was terrific. The front porch alone was worth the rental. The bedrooms and bathrooms were nice and the beach is right across the street. The location is as good as it gets in Ocean Grove and the yard had beautiful landscaping. The kitchen accommodated big meals and there was plenty of seating at three big tables on the porch. It was a great place for families and we would definitely go back.

Great old house

  • 5 of 5

Spent two great weeks at the Strandvue house. This old house, circa 1880 is an ideal house for a beach vacation for a large family. The front porch over looking the ocean is unbelievable. It has both covered section for when it rains as well uncovered for enjoying the sun. The porch is also gated so safe for little kids. The den/sunroom upstairs off of the master bedroom is a great place to hang out, read a book, play cards and it has a magnificent view. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking, coffee maker, tea kettle, two toasters, full size microwave, etc. They provide sheets and more than enough bath towels. Could have gone an entire week without washing any towels if we wanted. They have a full size washer and dryer. Plenty of closet space in each bedroom which is surprising for an old house.They provided very nice beach towels as well. There were a couple of beach chairs, a cooler, some sand toys, etc. Plenty of restaurants, coffee shops, ice cream places all within walking distance. The best restaurant in Ocean Grove is the Seagrass and it is a 2 minute walk from the house. Having off street parking for 2 cars is a huge perk in Ocean Grove. We had some minor plumbing issues when we were there (which is not unexpected with an old house) but they were taken care of very promptly. They were very accommodating to our needs. We will definitely be going back.

awesome vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! The house was amazing! We were amazed with how much room we had. We had my family of 8, my wife's family of 5 and both sets of parents. The weather was a little too cold so we all spent quite a bit of time in the mansion together. We never felt crowded. The kids played a lot on the 3rd level and you couldn't hear them at all on the main floor. The children ranged from 9 months old to 18 years old. Everyone of them had a great time. We couldn't get over the ocean view that we had throughout the home. This is the perfect place to stay if you want to visit NYC. We took the owner's advice and took the ferry across to NYC. That was one of the highlights. It was quite spectacular as we approached the big city and passed the Statue of Liberty. This was the first time we have ever been to NYC - what a wonderful way to see it for the first time. The front deck was HUGE - the kids spent a lot of time running around and playing on the deck. The little town of Ocean Grove was amazing! Lots of great little shops to go into and great places to eat. Everyone was so friendly! Our family's favorite was Nagel's - which was just a quick walk away. The owner's of the home were great to work with and very helpful! We definitely want to come back here! It was a vacation that we will always remember!
