Clean home with gracious homeowner
We stayed at Robin's home for 5 months during a home renovation. The home itself is very clean and well maintained. Location is convenient, close to parks restaurants and Sandy Hook bridge. We walked everywhere while the weather permitted. Robin was quick to respond whenever we need something and a pleasure to work with from start to finish!
What a great experience!
My wife and I rented this house for 5 full weeks (July plus the first week in August). We are from the area and wanted to come back and visit the beach for July. The house was perfect and accommodated various guest including some adult friends and some of our children and grand children.
It is clean, new and has great views of the river and ocean. The driveway works for parking one car and the street always has room for guest cars. You can walk to a number of great restaurants on Bay Ave and your are able to drive, walk or bike ride up in Hartshorne Woods or across the Highlands Bridge to the beaches.
I would rent this house again in a heartbeat.
We wanted to rent a house in the Highlands for a final beach weekend away for the summer. We found this house and it had everything we were looking for! The house is absolutely beautiful, and had every possible amenity you could think of! And the location couldn't have been more perfect! It was so relaxing sitting on the deck in the evening and watching the water! The street was so quiet, you almost didn't realize that there were houses next door!
Robin was amazing and very accommodating and gave us her cell phone so we could text her if we needed anything!
All in all, just an amazing house, amazing owner and amazing time! Looking forward to going back next year!!
Great house and location
We were fortunate to rent this house for the second year in a row. Just like last time, we found the house to be impeccably clean. The house has everything we could have possibly needed (coffee pot, iron, hair dryer, you name it!). We love the location, as we took our morning runs over the bridge to the beach and a short walk for lobster, sangria and ice cream at Moby's in the evening. We look forward to our next stay in this great house.
Fantastic home at the shore with great views
This is a wonderful house and a great base for stay at the shore. It is ideally situated for Sandy Hook, easily walkable to some great local bars and restaurants and conveniently located for access to main roads to the shore if you can tear yourself away from the balcony and the lovely views of the water. The house itself has everything you could need and is in lovely condition. We came over for my sister's wedding nearby and found this the perfect base - I really couldn't recommend this enough.
Atlantic Highlands Adventure
Although I grew up in New Jersey, I'd never been to this part of the Jersey Shore. Very interesting area historically, i.e. old lighthouses, bootlegging. You can sit on the deck and watch boats on the river, and at times, jets overhead. At first we had a problem with the dryer, but Robin had it handled in less than an hour. Close to everything you need, yet quiet at night. It's a trip sitting on the beach at Sandy Hook and seeing the skyscrapers of lower Manhattan in the distance. You can take a ferry there if you desire. Thanks Robin
