Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday apartment in Stone Harbor

4 bedrooms, 3 baths, outside h & c shower, sleeps 8, wireless available

Stone Harbor, known as Seven Mile Beach, is distinguished by quaint shops and restaurants. It is a hub of activity all day long, all season long. A short walk away, beautiful sloping beaches stretch the length of the island. This close proximity of beach and town allows you to stroll from sand and water to ice cream parlors and gift shops while enjoying the casual, relaxed atmosphere of the seashore.

Dotting the island are recreational areas for informal sports activities of all kinds: tennis, volleyball, soccer, baseball, basketball, paddleball, miniature golf and playgrounds. Several quality golf courses, while not on the island, are easily accessible from Stone Harbor.

The island is approximately seven miles in length and is only three to four city blocks in width. Stone Harbor occupies the southern half of the island extending from 80th Street to Hereford Inlet with Avalon to the north.

With the Inland Waterway to the west and the Atlantic Ocean to the east, Stone Harbor offers opportunities for water sports of every kind, from fishing to jet skiing, we have it all! Luxurious pleasure boats, chartered fishing vessels, skiffs and ocean going excursion boats are ready to launch you on an exciting, seafaring adventure!

From the breath-taking sunrises to unsurpassed sunsets, you can enjoy all that Stone Harbor has to offer all day long. We are sure you will find all you need for a wonderful vacation right here.

Our charming Bay Front, first floor duplex, is situated on the Shelter Haven Cove, which is conveniently located on the trendy 96th Avenue shopping. You can easily walk everywhere: two and-one-half blocks to the beach, two blocks to the cinema, within a two-block radius of 12 restaurants, across the street from the barber shop and bike shop, two blocks from hip art studios, two blocks from three bakeries and two ice cream parlors (including Springer’s). There is a lot of exciting activity right out your doorstep, yet once inside the apartment, you are immediately in your own quiet retreat overlooking the serene Bay.

Stone Harbor offers visitors a safe, clean, friendly, family atmosphere while maintaining a unique tradition of quality among seashore communities. We hope that you enjoy your visit with us and that you will return again and again.

Why Joseph D. Kuo chose South NJ Shore

Everyone may go to the beach, but you can only go to the bay by invitation.

We have the quietness of the bay viewing the setting sun each evening and watching the boats, bay, and birds. You have the serenity of the water to keep you calm after the fun of the day at the Beach. And, if you want to step out and go "downtown" you are right there. It is only a few steps away. Everything is convenient!

Stay At The Bay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a lovely week at your comfortable home on the bay. So many activities to choose from right at your doorstep. Beautiful views from the whole back of the house! We loved having so many good restaraunts, coffee shops,great shopping and the beautiful beach all within a two block walk. The house was very comfortable and had plenty of room for our family of eight. Joe and Marianne were extremely nice people to deal with. Thanks again for a great rental!

Stone Harbor 7/11-7/18 2015 Awesome!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been vacationing in Stone Harbor all of our lives. For the last 30 years or so, on or near the beach block. This was the first summer we spent on the bay since probably the 60's. While I was only a toddler at the time, my sisters remember the bay fondly and last weeks trip brought back wonderful memories. Although the old sailfish is gone, I rented a paddle board from across the street and the kids ( and I loved it so much ) I ended up buying another. The unit was great, the location perfect and the sunsets were beyond beautiful. I have already booked for 2016 and cannot wait!!!!

Marianne and Joseph, we cannot thank you enough..

Mack White and family

Excellent Location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family was in Stone Harbor for son's wedding at The Reeds this past weekend. VERY CONVENIENT LOCATION that allowed us to walk to shops, restaurants and, most importantly, the ceremony & reception. Great photo opportunities on the dock for the groom and groomsmen prior to the wedding celebration! Gracious hosts that have created a welcoming property on the bay. Helpful information concerning the area in the notebook and postings on the fridge!

Owner's Response: Dear Steve, Thank you for your kind words. Marianne and I are so pleased you and your family had a wonderful experience for the wedding week at the Reeds Hotel. It's a very special occasion. Please think of us in the fall during our October Fest. Late September and early October is still warm and the shops have their regular 40% discounts. Golden Inn (10 blocks away) has their 15 piece band playing in their dinning Ballroom. Best and thanks again, Joseph

Just like home

  • 4 of 5

What a great weekend we had at your house. It felt just like home & it was nice for everyone to have their own room & bath. The location was perfect for us, close to everything. The view on the back was wonderful to have coffee by. What a treat to be on the water. If we're ever down that way again we'll be sure to keep your place in mind.

Thanks, Patti

Owner's Response: Dear Patti, We are happy you enjoyed your short stay while attending the Wedding at the nearby Reeds Hotel. Hopefully you had a chance to have some time on our beautiful nearby sandy beach. Did you have a chance to catch some crabs and fish off of our 50 foot water front and docks? Surly you visited some of the 90 wonderful shops within 3 blocks of our house in Stone Harbor. I'm glad you mentioned you enjoyed drinking your morning coffee on our bay front deck. I hope you also enjoyed watching the Monarch Butterflies fluttering by as they are migrating south to Cape May on their way to Mexico. Please keep us in mind. Best regards, Joseph 10/22/2014

Excellent Bay front house

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location in stone harbor. It is right in the center of all restaurants and shops and two blocks from beach. The best part though is its bay front location. Nothing beats its peacefulness and serenity at end of a beach day. Our ten year old jumped into the bay to wash off sand after beach. The bay itself provides a variety of activities.We rented kayak and paddle board from neighboring store and spent some quality time on the water during dusk and down. With the crab traps on the dock, we had a couple of tasty steamed crabs for lunch.

It is a perfect place for our family of three generations. You can find pretty much anything you need in their house for a beach vacation: umbrellas, chairs, beach toys, life vests, even ropes to dock a kayak. We would go again.

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

This home was perfect for our group of 7. The bayfront location was steps away from everything! The rooms are cozy and well-furnished, as were the bathrooms. We did not have any issues with the A/C whatsoever, all the units worked fine and the home was cool. Thank you so much for having us!
