Beautiful sunsets and scenery on the canal

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed for a week and we loved every minute of our stay. The home and location was everything we thought it would be. Very close drive to many stores and bait shop when things are needed. The home was nicely set up with three nice sized bedrooms with an awesome view even from the living room as well. AC units were ice cold !! We spent countless hours on the dock hanging out swimming, kayaking, crabbing & fishing. I caught two nice sized stripers from the dock one night that went back to swim another day. The crabs were not so lucky and they were plentiful and big. Beautiful fireworks to be seen from the dock on Friday nights @ 10pm from across that water in NW

If I didn't have kids that wanted to go visit NW boardwalk and beach to meet their friends, I would have never left the dock and house, so relaxing and quiet!!!!

Frank the owner was a pleasure to deal with from the start and there was always great communication between us. I already had a few friends questioning where we were staying and wanted the owners information to stay here.

We will definitely be back but it will be for two weeks next time.

Thanks again

Never disappoints!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd stay at the 'best find' on the Jersey Shore. We spent hours on the the dock, kayaking, swimming, crabbing, and watching the birds go by. Cottage was spotless and remains beautifully decorated. Would not even dream of renting in town again.

Best kept secret in NJ

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd year and definitely will not be our last. The dock alone makes this home worth every penny! This home is beautifully decorated, well equipped, and spotless. Not only are the owners wonderful to deal with, they leave beach tags, chairs, kayaks, crab traps, basically anything you could think of! We spent countless hours on the dock. The beach could not be more convenient (a straight shot from the house) with cheap parking, bathrooms, and a snack shack. You can not go wrong with this vrbo. Thank you an amazing week.

Perfect vacation location, and lovely home.

  • 5 of 5

This was our nicest beach week ever. I was born in 1954 and until Grandmom passed away in 1996, summer at the beach was the grandparents (now) multi million dollar home on a Stone Harbor Bay that they got in 1939. I did not think any place could ever be nicer than that home.

In recent years for budgetary reasons we rented on the Delaware Bay, a short drive over to SH beach, but decided this year to try the causeway.

This location is nicer than the multi million dollar home in Stone Harbor. Seriously! At high tide the swimming is maybe 15 degrees warmer than the ocean. You can look out the back and see herons, egrets, skimmers, and little peeps at low tide. The marshes stretch out for miles. Hubby is a biker and loved it. Less than 2 miles to SH, or go the other way to Courthouse and down the bike trail. He didn't drive all week. The beaches are close. SH beaches ( unlike OC or WW) have a perfect rating for clean water without any EPA effluent violations. Why risk e coli.

The house is pretty and comfortable with everything you need for a vacation week. We had some relatives visit and there is plenty of extra parking across the street. Next year we hope to go twice, it was that nice!

The house was beautifully decorated, clean and refreshing. This was by far our best vacation at Stone Harbor. Watching the sunsets on the deck, and the views from the living room were gorgeous. Our kids had a blast kayaking and crabbing. Everything about this house was perfect!

Quintessential Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing week! This house was spotless and beautifully decorated. Everything you could want and need in a shore house. The dock was the icing on the cake! We spent hours, crabbing, kayaking, and relaxing on the covered pier. Frank could not have been better to work with. I highly recommend this property. We will definitely be returning next summer!
