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 Rumson

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.

Very nice, quaint house in a wonderful neighborhood, close to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

This is a small house but it slept our party of five very comfortably. Kitchen is well supplied. It is an older house with small bedrooms but that all plays into its charm. We would stay here again without hesitation.

Great location!

The house is very comfortable and well equipped. It is in a lovely neighborhood and prime location for Sea Bright Beach, with an easy walk over the bridge to the beach.

Adorable quirky house perfect for a family weekend

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great time at this house. The layout is great for dinner, watching tv, hanging out and playing games, etc. The back patio is adorable, too. We loved that we could easily park all 3 of our cars in the driveway and were so close to the beach. The house is older, but in a great way- Lots of cool architecture. It has a very comfortable, welcoming feel to it.

The owner was very communicative and accommodated a last minute change request I made to our reservation with no problem. She was easy to work with and I would definitely rent this house again. Thank you!

Perfect location, perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

Barb is a wonderful host and easy to coordinate with. She was even kind enough to help locate and send me some missing items I left behind! The home is as described - very close to Ocean Ave - 10 minutes walk, warm and cozy and with all of the amenities needed for a fun beach getaway!

Backyard has enough seating to enjoy a evening with twinkle lighting, the charcoal grill was perfect for BBQing and enough room for 6-7 people who were mainly on the beach all week!

Home is also located within 10-12 minutes driving distance to local supermarkets, coffee shops, etc.

Wonderful stay and would recommend!

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.
