Our family has lived in summer homes at theJersey Shore-- including Ventnor, Atlantic City and Brigantine for five generations. All from the Phildelphia area, we grew up as fishermen and women, card players, paper boys and girls, teen busboys, waitresses and sandwich men. We've had boats and bikes and so many wonderful times at the shore that built family closness and many, many memories. Now during "the year" we live in Randolph NJ, near NYC but go "down the shore" to "the house" whenever we can.
Lisa purchased this House in 1986
Why Lisa chose St. Leonard's Tract
My parents purchased this stately home built in 1921 in 1986 because they just fell in love with its elegance. My mom saw the owner walking down the staircase and wanted to be her! Her husband came to this country some 17 years earlier from Greece and was our kitchen contractor at our Aberdeen house; a decade and change later my Dad bought this home from him. That's America! They loved that it was on the narrowest part of the island, making it 2 blocks from the beach and one house from the bay. It's a corner home which affords access from two different streets. Instead of selling this gorgeous family compound, we renovated, dug in and made it even more comfortable and ready to share with our guests.
What makes this House unique
Our home just lives well. It sprawls over a corner and many people can be there at once you you never exactly see them. A guest house was added on in the 1940's because the grandparents had to raise two young boys. Each of these rooms, affectionately known as the Pink and Green rooms (although not that color anymore) have their own bathroom. An enclosed front yard and patio large enough for dinners and parties is an excellent feature, as well as a second-floor deck off one of the bedrooms., although no deck after dark because it gets too noisy for the neighbors. Nooks and crannies are fun for children. Location, Location on our home too. 10 minutes from Casinos and shops, walk over the Dorset Ave Bridge for ice cream, 30 minutes to Ocean City. Can you tell I'm in love??? :)

Lisa is very responsive and accommodating. She was wonderful to work with and the property is very well located. I would definitely stay there again!
Thanks Blake! We enjoyed having you and it was fun helping you plan your special event. Come back anytime!
Fun Family Reunion
The property was very nice. It accommodated our large evening gatherings of about 20 family members well. Pretty easy walk to the beach. Lisa was very helpful!
Amazing Family-Friendly Beach Property
We stayed in the Somerset Stunner for a long weekend at the end of August to have a gathering of friends and family and it did not disappoint! The property is tucked quietly away from main roads and yet is only a 5 minute walk to the beach, tennis courts, the boardwalk and plentiful dining/food options. As we had several toddlers with us, the house was also very friendly for families with most rooms having an en-suite bathroom and plentiful space and was generally child friendly.
Lisa, the owner, is incredibly nice and super helpful with respect to check in and out and keeps the house very clean and in beautiful condition. We are already in talks to rent the same house again next summer!
Beautiful home on quiet street, close to beach!
This house was very warm and comfortable. There was plenty of living space
for our family to spread out and enjoy each other . With just a short walk to
the beach, it was ideal. Lisa was a wonderful ! From the moment we booked
she went out of her way to make sure our family had the best experience in her home. We would definitely come back again !
Helen, it was such a pleasure having you and your family at Shore Stunner. We’re so glad you enjoyed the house, the beach, the area and your vacation. Come back for summer 2019 or any time family, friends, and festivities are on th calendar!
My brother from Maryland and I (from NY) were looking for a place to meet up that was half way between us. We decide on the Jersey shore and were extremely lucky to find this home with only one week notice. We were greeted with a tasty wine and beach tags. The owner was very helpful and got in contact with me from the day I booked the trip and answered all my questions until the day it ended. She helped us with food choices and things to do. She was like my own personal concierge. This house has everything any group would ever need. Upon our arrival the kids ran into this very clean beautiful home and went exploring. It kept them busy for a few hours because there were so many nooks and crannies. All 9 of us slept comfortably and had privacy. There are plenty of bathrooms and bedrooms to accommodate any size group. We were 2 families plus one senior.
There is also a shower outside the house which we used every time we came back from the beach plus beach chairs, beach towels, toys and umbrella. The beach is only a few blocks away and there is a Wawa and sandwich shop along the way. We also walked to a local restaurant for dinner and went to Margate the next night for dinner and ice cream. This is a place I would definitely take my family to again in the near future. I would recommend this house to any group who wants to stay in a beautiful home, close to the beach, restaurants and of course Atlantic City.
The perfect house in a great location.
Some family, friends and I were looking for a place to stay for a weekend and we were extremely lucky to find this place. We were greeted with a welcome basket which included wine and beach tags for our use. It had everything that you could possibly want or need. One of the groups favorite things about the house was the beauty behind the way it's age and classic look harmonized with the more modern aspects of the house. If you are one for tasteful decor and hundred year old architecture then this place is for you. If you enjoy a more modern feel for a beach home, this place is able to cover that as well. From the outside, you wouldn't expect the amount of space the house has which there certainly is plenty of. All 7 of us were able to sleep comfortably and have privacy. There are plenty of bathrooms and bedrooms to accommodate groups of any size. In addition to the interior; the lawn is beautifully decorated, there is a one car garage (which included beach chairs and any beach gear we'd want to use) with a good sized driveway, and a very nice roof deck for an early morning coffee or a night cap before bed. The house itself was so great it was easy to overlook it's prime location. About a block and half from the beach, walking there was no issue at all especially with slow traffic. If you're interested in the Atlantic City shopping, restaurants or night life that is only a nice walk or short drive away (Uber available as well). Other convenient stores like Wawa were a short walk away in case you need any essentials. This is a place that I would definitely take my family and friends to again and we couldn't have asked for more kind hosts! I'd recommend this house to any group visiting the area!
