                            A great place in a great location. Newly renovated, clean, well appointed, and comfortable. Close to the beach and within walking distance of good, inexpensive places to eat and drink. Good to see the Shore making a comeback after the hurricane. Sandy Hook is always a blast in the summer, and better for families and younger children than other parts of the Shore. The owners were very responsive and a pleasure to deal with. They were very cooperative and gave recommendations on where to eat and other local activities. This is the place for a comfortable and convenient stay at the Shore.

                            Recommended for: Romantic getaway, families with young children, age 55+, families with teenagers, girls getaway.

                            Owner response: Joel, it was a pleasure to host your family. We are so happy to hear that you had a good time.

                            Had a fabulous one-week stay with lots of visiting family/friends on various days. House is compact, sleeps 6 comfortably (2 on the pull-out couch downstairs), and is extremely well laid-out and maintained, with two full baths -- one upstairs and one downstairs by the back entrance, for "sandy" returns from the beach! Super-comfy beds, and all the needed amenities inside and out, plus two open porches. Great seafood restaurants all around -- along the bay -- and lovely small bay beaches, some with lifeguards, aside from the beautiful Sandy Hook ocean beaches, of course, which are 5-minutes away -- just over the bridge. Jeff, the owner, was very responsive and helpful, and a pleasure to deal with. Will definitely return!!

                            Recommended for: Families with young children, age 55+, girls getaway.

                            I stayed here for 5 weeks during the Christmas holidays/ Blizzard of 2010. It was comfortable and felt like a home away from home. Great location for restaurants, food shopping, movie theater, etc. There are wonderful places for breakfast that are very reasonable and friendly. The neighbors are friendly as well which is always a plus! My golden loved the fenced in yard. Rent this property because the owners are accommodating and you will throughly enjoy your stay!

                            Recommended for: Romantic getaway, sightseeing, pet owners, age 55+, tourists without a car, girls getaway.
