About John Murphy

John Murphy purchased this house in 2017

Why John Murphy chose Ventnor City

LOVE the architecture of this home and flow of the floor plan. It just feels like home and has plenty of room for everyone.

What makes this house unique

So close to the beach and so close to the nightlife in AC. We love this area because we can bring our children and love it or bring our friends and have just as good of a time.

beach block! spacious! clean!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for our school a capella retreat. 20 teenage girls and chaperones fit so comfortably in the spacious house. It was clean and well equipped. Cooking for everyone was a breeze in the kitchen. The experience was wonderful.

Great house for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

Our staff really enjoyed staying at the Vassar home for our annual staff retreat. The house was large enough to fit our 24 person group and we had ample space to spread out in different sections of the house. We loved being so close to the beach, and the extra beach towels / chairs available were a nice touch. The only 2 issues we had were the following: Some of the rooms are connected which can be awkward if you have couples staying together, and it took way too long for the AC to cool down the lower levels (living room / dining room / kitchen). But other than that, our stay was great and we'd definitely come back again! Thank you to the Murphy's & Amy for responding so quickly to my emails, texts, and calls when we had a question or an issue came up. They were super helpful and great to work with! :) Thank you!

Beach block house, lots of space, beautiful interior

  • 4 of 5

As advertised house had LOTS of interior space. Bedrooms galore, lay-out of the interior living space perfect for entertaining a large group. Kitchen well maintained, grill worked fine, we easily cooked for 20+ people all week. Beach steps away. Plumbing backed up one night, which killed part of a day but owner/manager responded promptly, assessed situation, and called Roter Rooter to fix the problem. While it's a beach block, across the street you have a large apartment building with lots of loud HVAC. Not at all a problem if you are an indoor AC type. AC works great. Loud HVAC a buzz kill if you want to open windows, sit on the deck, hear the sound of the sea. Also note that there is no on-site parking. There are four resident passes available for guest cars, which allow overnight parking on side streets. Overall we had a very fun week and would stay there again even knowing the drawbacks.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review! I just wanted to clarify the parking for potential future guests. There is 1 on-site parking spot which is in the garage to which you are given access. Additionally, the street the home is located does not require any parking passes and there are about 6 parking spots on that street that, while they are public spots, are generally readily available for guests in the house. In addition to that, there are four provided parking passes that allow guests to park on Atlantic Ave (the cross street for the home). I've personally never noticed the noise level of the Plaza AC units running but I'm sure you're right they're noticeable if you're on the porch or have the windows open. Thanks again for staying and hope to see you again.

Fabulous house in a wonderful location !

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience at this house . The house was perfect for our large family reunion - the location is wonderful-just minutes to the beach - the games room was a life saver on rainy days -we were able to order food and have it delivered.

The amount of space in this house is fantastic and John and Rebecca have managed to make such a large space feel very welcoming.

They were wonderful to deal with from beginning to end - they answered questions promptly and gave clear information. Would highly recommend to a large group or family .
