About Barb O'Donnell

Lived in this neighborhood over twenty years, raised two sons and couldn't think of a better place to live. Year round community but close to the beach for surfing (the men) and walking the beach (me).

Why Barb O'Donnell chose Shore Region

This house is over 100 years old, a little funky, probably not for everybody, but just what a beach house has always been to me. Lots of charm, very comfortable, rocking chairs on the porch to sit with your morning coffee, or evening glass of wine.

What makes this house unique

Although you are very close to the Sea Bright beach, you are in a family neighborhood away from the hustle and bustle of the beach town. Kids can ride bikes, go to the playground, or fish in Polly's pond. Walk over the bridge and you're right in the middle of it, but when you come home, you are away from it all.

Lovely property, great location

  • 5 of 5

Spent an enjoyable 4 days at Barb's house with my family including our toddler. Great location on a quiet, tree-lined street. The house is old, but kept in good condition. Kitchen is well-furnished. We were comfortable with A/C units in all the rooms. Great porch and good charcoal grill out the side door. We easily rode our bikes across the bridge to the beach in under 10 minutes (would have been a much longer walk). Great family beach, decent restaurants in Sea Bright (good fish market). We would come back again.

Very Nice Stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nice, clean, kitchen pretty well stocked. Owner very accommodating to our needs. It is a pretty long walk to the beach, but parking at the beach not to far. I would definitely stay again.

Great Beach Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a relaxing weekend at the beach and that is exactly what we got. The house is in the beautiful town of Rumson with a less than a mile walk to the quiet beach of Sea Bright. Barb's suggestion of driving a car over to the municipal lot with all the beach stuff in the morning was perfect, we would never had found a spot otherwise.

In the evening we BBQed and spent time on the back patio while the kids slept.

We will definitely be back next summer.
