Charming, quaint, well maintained with fabulous views!
Our hosts could not have been more gracious and accommodating. We arrived quite late and they met us with friendly faces and a basket of food, much appreciated after an 11 hour car ride. The house is warm, cozy and has every amenity you would need. The views of the river are amazing. We watched a college regatta on Saturday that was incredibly picturesque. We would definitely stay here again.
Thanks so much for your kind review. Just meeting you for a few minutes we could tell you were a nice family ... your son Chris so polite and were happy to share our home with you. Thanks for leaving it so clean!! Your pillow will be in the mail. Sincerely, helene
The house was wonderful
The pictures didn’t do the house it’s actual justice. The view was amazing and the outside sitting area upstairs and downstairs were great for relaxing with others. Helene is an amazing house and there were no issues I would definitely rent this home again.
Thx so much for taking the time to write a nice review and for taking good care of our house! Helene
The best house in Island Heights!
This home faces the water and the boardwalk and offers the best view of spectacular sunsets. We rented this house for 7 months while we looked for a home to buy. I would have been thrilled to live here permanently but the owner wouldn't consider it. We loved every minute of our stay.
Fun and Relaxing Cottage by the Water
What a fun lovely cottage! Great views from practically every room. Light, airy, and sunny throughout the day. You can wake up in the morning, sit on the lower deck, have your tea or coffee, and watch the boats go by. Then you go to the inside porch, lay down on the daybed or couch and take a nap. Later on have cocktails on the upper deck off of the expansive bedroom that has huge couches and watch the magnificent sunsets! There is fishing or crabbing right down the street on the public dock seconds away. Many options for relaxation and just hanging out and doing nothing. It is a sweet town with a boardwalk surrounding a large part and water water everywhere. Loved our time there! The only problem is that many people love it and it is often booked!
a true Gem
my family and i just recently rented this awsome home with our three small children .for five mts it was a great home the views are breath taking and would recommed this home to familys or any one that truly will enjoy peace . the owners are a true gem them self
Jersey Shore at its Best
The Jersey Shore gets a bad rap when compared to the Hamptons and Nantucket but the white cottage on the hill in Island Heights, NJ can hold its own in the company of any of those places. With unobstructed views of the Toms River, you can start your day perched on the downstairs deck sipping coffee while watching the boaters and fisherman then later escape to the upstairs deck for evening cocktails and a gorgeous sunset. Surrounded by cool art, loads of books and water views from most windows, the interior of this beach home exudes old world charm with all of the modern day conveniences. It's the perfect place to unplug, slow down and experience a simpler way of life. Plus Helene and Jim McMullen are extremely accommodating owners.
