About the owner: I am passionate about the arts and love living near beaches. Living in Highlands, New Jersey allowed me to have access to NYC arts and yet have the peace and quiet of a suburban neighborhood. I have lived in the Highlands for over five years and enjoy the peace and quiet of the shore for relaxation while I worked and commuted to NYC. I hope to find travelers who will enjoy an eclectic collection of arts and crafts while they relax in a cozy warm home near beaches and other Jersey shore attractions.
Why the Owner Chose Highlands: Highlands, New Jersey is the quiet start of the Jersey shore; close enough to enjoy the serene calm of the ocean and yet commute to one of the world's busiest financial and retail centers, New York city. The home is filled with art, movies, and water views; perfect for a romantic, executive, or family re-treat.
Book now. Preference is for mature adults and families to rent for the summer season but home is available year round. Great for executives who can commute via ferry to New York city. Weekly and week-end rentals available.
