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.

Better than the pictures show!

  • 5 of 5

This place was AMAZING. The location, the setup, the size, everything was more than we anticipated. The owners were nice and helpful the entire process. We encountered a storm which spoiled our first night but we made the best of it in this house, plenty of room for fun inside. It’s a great place with a lot of room, I highly recommend for any family vacation. Thanks again to the owners for such a great visit!

Super Bowl weekend with friends

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home. My group of 20 stayed here for the Super Bowl weekend and had an amazing time. Upon our arrival, Mrs. Rebecca was very informative and provided early access to the location. This residence is very clean and just blocks away from stores, downtown shopping and the Atlantic City casinos. Mr. John Murphy and the Murphy family properties should be at the top of your list when visiting this area! It was a pleasure doing business with them and wish them much success in all of their endeavors..,

Have a wonderful time.

Reggie and friends

Perfection is an understatement!

  • 5 of 5

I can’t tell you how long I searched for a home that would accommodate everyone in my family! Trying to cater to 24 people can be challenging to say the least. When we arrived we couldn’t believe how large the house was! There was ample seating for everyone in the main part of the house and four televisions, so no arguments when it came to who controlled the remote. All of the beds were super comfortable, bathrooms clean & bright and we all loved being able to sit down and enjoy dinner together! We even played a few games of pool downstairs while listening to music- there’s an Apple TV in the pool room area, so I could play music from my playlist! I was lucky enough to have the master bedroom and waking up to the sunrise in the morning was incredible! The boardwalk & beach are literally right out of your front door! I could go on and on, but i guess you’ll have to see for yourself! Thanks again for a great stay, John! We can’t wait to come back in the summer!
