We plan to retire in our rental home someday, so we take very good care of it.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an enjoyable stay at the GHelm House. The house gave us many comforts during the week. 1)The quietness of the house provided much peace and relaxation for all. 2) the house ws in an ideal location. So we were enjoyuing our favorite pass times (shopping, eating and swimming). we took full advantage of it all. 3) Family togetherness - All the family was able to enjoy the house (moy mother, my father, my husband, my daughter and me). The week gave us opportunty to share the house for 7 days. Lastly the shore (Pt. Pleansant) was just what I needed after teaching all year. The house gave me a good feeling of how a shore home would be for my family. It was quite relaxing and we really enjoyed staying here for the week. Thanks for sharing your house!

I slept like a baby at Helm House (my family usually has to weather my inability to get a good nights rest outside of my own bed!). The beds were clean and cozy, as was the entire house (If I had to guess, THIS is why I slept so well). The location was perfect. It felt like the quintessential beach neighborhood: families joy riding on their bikes with towels around their necks, the sweet smell of salt and a fresh breeze, a quick walk to the beach and a rather exciting and well cared for boardwalk. We thoroughly enjoyed grilling and relaxing under a landscape shaded patio after a fun day at the beach with family. (I wish to replicate, around my own patio ,all the trees and groundcover's that made the patio so inviting and like a sanctuary). Ginny was super responsive to any questions I had and was great to work with, which continued to affirm choosing a private residence to a hotel any day!! Thanks Ginny : )

John and Ginny's Helm House

  • 5 of 5

From August 18 until Sept 2nd my wife ,my daughter myself and our two dogs had the pleasure of staying at John and Ginny's Point Pleasant beach house. We where comfortable from the moment we walked in the door. The house was clean and well equipped.Every thing you needed was there.Loved the outdoor shower. It has a great little patio with a gas grill that is private from the street . Great for a quiet morning cup of coffee.The washer dryer was very useful with all the beach stuff. Clyde and Rosie our dogs were very happy in the air conditioned sunroom .The beds were very comfy.The area was nice and quite but it was only a short walk to the beach.The garage was very useful for all the beach stuff and extra supplys. We totally enjoyed our stay and plan to go back next summer.Thanks to John and Ginny,you are great hosts.

Absolutely Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at The Helm House from 7/28/12 thru 8/4/12. The listing is totally accurate and precise. Upon arrival, we found the premises to be immaculately clean, well-maintained and ready for us to move in and begin our vacation. The proximity to the beach and boardwalk is a plus especially since we had 2 small grandchildren visiting for a few days and being able to walk to the beach alleviated packing and unpacking the car. We also very much appreciated the outside shower when it came time to rinse them off when we came back! The home sits in a very quiet neighborhood with a lovely park right down the street. Very nice area for dog walking as we had our shih tzu Ernie with us - he made many friends on his daily strolls! We utilized the attached spacious garage - so nice to be able to practically park the car for a week! Communicating with Ginny was a joy. She was present upon our arrival and assured us she was a phone call away if we had any issues. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a stress-free getaway in fun-filled Point Pleasant Beach. It is our sincere hope that we will be reaching out to Ginny to plan next year's vacation - our time spent at Helm House was wonderful!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Peg for writing a very nice review. We are very happy that you and Steve enjoyed your week. We love happy guests :) Sorry I didn't get to meet the grandbabies, perhaps next year. Pet Ernie for me!! Hope he got to the Doggie Beach. Our "Buddy" loves it there.

The Helm house is clean, well maintained retro style ranch. Very convenient because there are no stairs. We did not get to use all the amenities such as beach passes and washer/dryer. I don't do much cooking when we are on vacation but the kitchen had everything you would need. Bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. Bathroom was a generous size. Shower had good water pressure. Central Air kept us nice and cool. Plenty of room for a family. The only thing I would say is the TV in the living room is a little hard to see. I'm used to 42" HD....but you aren't really there to watch t.v. I guess.

Very convenient to town and to the beach so no problems getting around. Ginny was wonderful to work with. I would definitely rent here again!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Helm House. The owner was great to work with and was quick with communication and making sure we had everything we needed. I liked the victorian style bedrooms, the beach-style living room & the retro kitchen. Everything was very clean and comfortable. The location is great, very quiet, & yet close to everything. The description is very accurate. The beach and our time in this town was wonderful! We felt like we could stay a long time. Recommend!!
