The people who run this place clearly are devoted to what they do. Could not ask for a better location, very comfortable, air conditioning, lots of little amenities. The room was small but was evocative of the time period that this place was built. Overall, it was a great experience.

We came to the town of Ocean Grove for the first time a couple of years ago when relatives of ours bought a summer home here. It is such a quaint town, not at all the its neighbor Asbury Park. It is a community built around the Methodist Religious Community. The Ocean Vista is a wonderful Ocean Front B&B. Check... More

I just called this place at 10:30pm to inquire as to rooms. The woman I spoke to advised they didn't have availability for the dates I needed. They she proceeded to give me the names of 3 other places and even waited on the phone with me to provide me the phone numbers for competitors!!!! Love that Jersey Shore small... More

Stayed for a couple of nights around Thanksgiving. The hotel looked very festive, the staff was very friendly, and my room was very comfortable, cheerful, and clean. This was the off-season so I was more interested in the proximity to shops and restaurants (quite near) than to the ocean (a short walk).

just got back from this Bed and Breakfast today. I wanted to write this review asap so that I did not leave out anything. The LOCATION is great! You are right across the street from the entrance to the beach. The area is safe and clean. You are two shorts blocks north of main street, where you will find some... More

We returned to the Ocean Vista for our third stay (at least) last weekend. It's almost like being a house guest: the owners are around a lot and chatty, the desk staff are friendly, the dog is lovable, and the beds are comfortable. We took a two-room and another twin-bed room across the hall. The rooms are small, but pretty... More

My husband and I spent a lovely weekend at the Ocean Vista. The property is Ocean front, just walk across the street and you are literally on the boardwalk! In fact, our room was even ocean front, so we woke up with ocean views right from our room. The house is a beautiful old style, with two gorgeous porches, perfect... More

I stayed here in the early summer for a couple of nights just to get away and be on the beach. It was wonderful. I had a single room with shared bath (you can get rooms with private bath too) and the best part was being able to walk out on the 2nd floor balcony and watch the sunrise. Light... More

The personal, friendly approach started with phone inquiries and continued through our 2-night visit. Pleasantly surprised that our rooms were ready well before normal check-in time, allowing us to settle in and get to the beach before noon. Beach blankets and towels generously provided. Sunny, small rooms with comfortable beds; size compensated for with balconies overlooking the beach and Victorian... More

Great view, cozy porch, clean room, relaxing unpretentious atmosphere create the perfect scenario for a weekend away from the craziness of city life. This was my second visit to the Ocean Vista and it did not disappoint. The environment is cozy and the staff makes you feel at home. Pete and Diane are nice non intrusive hosts. Rooms are on...
