About Barbara Donahue

I work in the field of Green Building and for two years I searched for a home to renovate and LEED certify. Between 2011 and 2012 I looked at and walked through at least 150 homes, I put in 3 offers on different homes in CT and was out bid on two and the last home was pulled off the market by the bank.

Barbara Donahue purchased this house in 2012

Why Barbara Donahue chose Seaside Park

In July 2012 my husband and I vacationed in Seaside Park, NJ. We rented a two bedroom home a block from the beach. My brother and his family rented a home ocean block in Seaside Park and my parents split their time between the two homes. It was just like I remembered. Donuts from Park Bakery for breakfast. In the ocean riding the waves until lunch time and then eating lunch on the beach. Every morning my dad asks everyone what they want for lunch and wraps up each sandwich with a slip of paper with their name on it. Growing up my parents rented a bungalow in South Seaside Park. I have great memories of our week vacation at the shore every summer with my cousins. When our oldest son turned one we started renting a beach house for a week in Lavallette, NJ. Our two sons have great memories of vacationing with their cousins every summer at the Jersey shore.

In 2012 it had been seven years since we had vacationed at the Jersey shore. My brother had also not vacationed for seven years and in 2011 he rented a beach house in Seaside Park. I told him to let me know when he was going and 2012 and we would get a place too. While sitting on the beach I threw out the idea of buying a beach house to renovate. We looked in July and in September we went back for a weekend to celebrate our anniversary and look at more homes. We wanted a Seaside Park Beach House to renovate. By Sunday evening of that weekend we made an offer on 40 7th Avenue. Our closing date was set for October 29, 2012. If your not familiar with the date that is the day that hurricane Sandy hit. Several days after the hurricane I could see on google maps that the street looked fine. I was confident that the home had survived the hurricane. However, I didn’t know if the home had flooded. It took weeks before I found out that the home had not flooded. Our new closing date was set for December 7, 2012 (Pearl Harbor Day!)

The Beach House is renovated and ready for you to make memories.

What makes this house unique

7th Avenue is a wonderful neighborhood. Wednesday evenings are kite night on the beach. You can park your car and walk to everything. The amusement park is just close enough at 1.3 miles.

Perfect vacation week

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter (6) and I loved staying at Barbara's house. The location was perfect! We walked to B&B, Park Bakery, Betty & Nick's and the general store. Kite night is a treat, too! The beach down that end is never uncomfortably crowded, we always had plenty of room to enjoy ourselves. Watching the sunset from the 5th Ave pier was really nice, too. The house had everything we needed. The living room is bright and airy with comfortable seating. My daughter really enjoyed the selection of children's books! It was nice being able to do our laundry as needed, also. Barbara was quick to respond to any questions or concerns I had. I would highly recommend this home.

Perfect house, perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Don't be fooled by the size. This is a great house for a small family looking to stay on the Ocean block in Seaside Park. Just six houses from the beach, 2 blocks from the Bakery, and one block to B&B and Charlie's Ice Cream.

The house was clean, and suited us fine. Beds were comfortable, pillows were fluffy (note: sheets and towels do not come with the rental). Is it a fancy house? No. But it is clean, comfortable, and affordable. There is no better location in SSP. Spent many a night sitting on the front porch reading and saying "hi" to passers-by.

Will definitely be coming back.

Owner's Response: The appearance is deceiving. The living room is 18' * 20' and has seating for 10 as well as a table with 3 chairs and 2 barstools. We enjoy coffee in the morning and reading on the front porch in the evening. I am happy you enjoyed your stay and look forward to you returning in the future.
