About the property

Come explore the historic coastal town of Ocean Grove and stay at the historical Strandvue Grand Victorian Mansion

The Strandvue is a Grand Victorian Mansion located in the beautiful New Jersey Shore Town of Historic Ocean Grove. The Strandvue is a wonderful vacation location . The sweeping front porch boasts a breathtaking view of the beach and the cozy interior with 6 fully furnished bedrooms and plenty of additional living space, can accommodate up to 16 – 18 guests comfortably. The furnished bedrooms have ample room to sleep 12 guests, but additional sleeping arrangements can be made on the first floor sleeper sofa, the third floor futon and two air mattresses. The Strandvue is only a few blocks from downtown Ocean Grove’s shops, restaurants and entertainment.

The Strandvue's sweeping 1400 square foot porch has unparalleled views of the ocean. Enjoy your morning cup of coffee and watch the sun rise over the ocean or just enjoy a happy hour cocktail. The entire porch is gated, so it's a great place to let the kids run around while you sit back and enjoy the beautiful scenery.

When you walk in you are greeted by Strandvue’s great Parlor. The parlor invites you to unwind and is a great space to play games or or simply sit quietly and read a book with a fabulously relaxing beach view. The parlor is also a great place to gather with friends and family. The room spans from the front of the house clear to the back of the home and is a great space for entertaining.

About Nancy

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

Nancy purchased this house in 1975

Why Nancy chose Jersey Shore

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.

Ecstatic on picking The Strandvue for our engagement party

  • 5 of 5

OK where do I start, from the exterior look at the Strandvue to the spacious front porch to the abundant room inside everything was just amazing! We had our engagement party here with over 70 people and even though there was plenty of space inside we chose to do it on the front porch. With the food drinks and dessert inside the front porch allowed us plenty of space for tables and chairs, it looked amazing. The weather was perfect and having the beach directly across the street with an amazing view was a highlight to everyone who attended. The manager Nancy was very helpful during the whole process. We are eagerly waiting to come back to the Strandvue for our rehearsal dinner!

Perfect venue for our wedding

  • 5 of 5

This was the most perfect place to hold our wedding for 110 people. We had many family members from around the country stay with us and in the many surrounding bed and breakfasts. The house is made for absolute fun. The front porch alone could be the where you spend the entire time you are there. The house is well stocked with everything you could possibly need. There are plenty of towels, soft sheets and coffee mugs! The manager Nancy is wonderful. She is very helpful and accomodating. Town is a short walk and the ocean is across the street. Made for a dreamy, funfilled week of celebration. We all loved it and look forward to the next time we are able to spend time there again!

Perfection! Fabulous Beachfront Location - Large home w/ huge front proch overlooking ocean!

  • 5 of 5

Unbelievable home, lots of spacious rooms, extremely large covered front porch overlooking the ocean.

The location is perfect for all occasions, walk to shops, beach, restaurants and night life. Home sits on a beautiful lot directly in front of the ocean and a gorgeous beach in an Historic Jersey shore community.

Every activity you would want is steps away yet this home provides privacy and roominess for all.

Perfect for family vacation, a wedding or event, or a weekend getaway to the shore. We loved it!

Unforgettable Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at impressive Strandvue in early June. Our family loved it! Many extras with house [in addition to 4 full bathrooms and a powder room]: plenty of bath towels, beach towels, linens, a car booster seat, spices in the kitchen cabinets, numerous TV sets and three sets of tables and chairs on the huge front porch. Two new airbeds [plus several that tended to deflate during the night], and at least two sofas that could serve as a single bed. Master suite is accessed by a single door and includes a king bed in the main room [full bath en suite] with a double bed [and balcony] in a separate room off the main bedroom. Sun room and laundry room/powder room are also off the main bedroom of the master suite. Property manager Nancy was most helpful and gracious throughout the entire rental process. Stroll across the street to Ocean Grove beach, or go north on the boardwalk to Asbury Park or south to Bradley Beach - all an easy walk. Ocean Grove is a delightful Victorian town to explore on foot; shops and restaurants are about a block away from Strandvue. Chilly, windy weather did not affect our enjoyment - some people went into the water anyway - and the 2nd floor sun room and the first floor sun room [which adjoins the large dining room] allowed us to bask in sheltered comfort when we weren't outside. This was a splendid occasion and we are very happy we were able to secure a reservation at Strandvue.

Awesome Property!!

  • 5 of 5

In April 2015 I had a welcome home party for my son returning from the Navy, I had 125 guests attend the party, many from out of state & a few from over seas. It was a beautiful charming house that comfortably slept 20 guests. Every bedroom had a beautiful water view, clean sheets clean towels. A fully equipped kitchen. Very well maintained & cared for by a lovely Property Manager, Nancy. She was amazing & helpful with suggestions & recommendations, very knowledgeable of the area, things to do & places to eat. Although it was a huge house on the water it felt very cozy, warm & comfortable, The area very much reminded me of Martha's Vineyard with beautiful little unique shops & restaurants. I would highly rate & recommend this property and the Property Manager Nancy who helped me flawlessly plan a surprise welcome home party for my son.

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.
