Recently on YELP about Asbury Park and its beaches:
“One of the best beaches in NJ. Asbury brings it's own personality; diverse, eclectic, artistic and fun to the NJ beach scene. No Jersey Shore cheese here - clean beaches, great restaurants and nightlife abound...”
“One of the best decisions I ever made. It’s got the beach, boardwalk, fresh salty air and small town friendliness along with active nightlife and restaurant scene you need to revive yourself on the weekends, all within an accessible 90 min train/car ride from Jersey City/NYC. This place is not for everyone; contingent on liking Asbury Park is embracing its diverse and funky vibe. Black, white, latino, gay, straight, preppy, rock and roll, singles and families all somehow have their place here, and it just works. If you 'get it', you will be hooked. And yes, the beach itself is beautiful.”

This review is actually for the Upright Downtown Citizen House, which is owned by the same people. We came in with a group of 12 for Bamboozle weekend and had a blast. Vivian is an absolute sweetheart and completely adorable, she even rode over on her pink bike. The house isn't big, but our group was comfortable. The balcony off of the third floor master bedroom is a nice little hangout spot, but the floor is black so it gets extremely hot. A good tanning spot for sure! The house in a diverse neighborhood, however the neighbors are all very nice - a few even came over to hang out. There is a small spanish market around the corner and a Shop Rite about 10 minutes away. Turn left out of the house and you can walk straight to the beach. It's a decent walk, but very manageable and a nice way to end a night at the beach. Bikes are definitely the preferred way to get around in the area, I would recommend renting or bringing some along. The train station is also right around the corner from the house. The only complaint we had was that since the property was brand new, the backyard was essentially a pile of dirt, but I'm sure it has been seeded by now. We were the first to rent this house but certainly won't be the last. See you next year Viv!

guest email received following their stay: Hi Vivian, I just wanted to send you a note thanking you so much for letting us rent you amazing home in Asbury. The entire weekend was such an amazing success, and we were so happy that we had a nice place to saty while in Asbury. We really loved your home and thank you so much. My fiance and I are looking to plan our wedding in Asbury in May and if it all works out we may be interested in renting the house again if it's available. Thanks again for everything! Kyle
