                                                              Very happy to accommodate you during your stay!

                                                              Such a lovely house and very welcoming.

                                                              Aileen O.

                                                              We were visiting New Jersey after a very busy week at our son's Graduation in Tennessee; we were looking forward to just getting to the house and relaxing for a few days...... we were not disappointed. We received entry details to house via email from Jeff prior to our arrival along with directions to the property. We arrived and found that everything was very welcoming for us. The house itself was just as it is pictured and the location was perfect. We had a lovely week in Highlands and met quite a few local people who were wonderful ...... everyone is so friendly. We have already started to look at flights etc. for our holiday next year to Jersey Shore and we hope that we can stay here again.

                                                              If we had any questions about the house during our stay I would simply email Jeff and he would respond within the hour which was reassuring.

                                                              Thank you Jeff! Hope to be in touch soon.

                                                              Great location. Walking distance to some great restaurants. Clean and comfy.

                                                              We had great time and Jeff was so responsive, even had a locksmith come out on a Sunday night when the back door lock wouldn't catch. Place is clean and comfortable and we lived sitting on the front porch and watching the the river.

                                                              Nice house, great location!

                                                              Highlands in a cute town and the house is near several waterfront bars and restaurants, all within walking distance. It's a short drive to Sandy Hook National Park, Sea Bright Beach and plenty of other beaches along the shore. The house is comfortable and clean. Thanks Jeff, we had a great week!

                                                              We really enjoyed our stay here. You can see Sandy Hook from the front porch. There are restaurants close by as well as a fresh seafood shop if you prefer cooking yourself. Jeff is a very responsive host. The place appears to be newly renovated and is very comfortable.
