Little cabin-like in the wood by the beach

  • 5 of 5

It was our second stay in this house and it was just as we remembered. Located in a quiet neighborhood, the house is surrounded by a forest of mature trees, which provided us with intimacy, especially at night when using the fire pit. The kids also had enough space to play outside and there is a playground 2 blocks further down the street. The bay beach is nice, although we saw one jellyfish. We still prefer the ocean with its bigger waves from Seaside.

The covered porch is where we spent most of our eating and leisure time. The rest of the house is cozy and just big enough for a family of five. The air conditioning was a blessing, especially during this humid summer. Special mention to the dishwasher as well, very appreciated when on vacation.

We are for sure coming back again next year. The owners made sure we liked our stay and were open to suggestions to enhance our future stays.

Thanks again Carol and Dave, see you next year !

Great experience. House is cozy and what we expected.

  • 5 of 5

The owner was easy to get a hold of, house is great and the area is awsome.

The only suggestion is to bring a mattress topper. The beds are hard.

Owner's Response: Thanks Chris, I'll take your criticism into account for next summer...I'll put bed toppers in each bedroom closet, for you to use, if you like it softer.. Book early as it's been filling up very fast..

Cute, Clean House with the feel of being in the woods

  • 5 of 5

I went on a fishing weekend with my son and 2 of my friends and was looking for a place to stay close by fishing. This is the perfect house less than 1/2 hour from private charters as well as the big party boats. The house is set back off the road with a long driveway which makes it feel like your in the woods (but you're really not (actually on a main road in Island Heights). Island Heights itself is a great safe neighborhood with a lot of friendly people and very close to everything including the beach, restaurants and shopping. Back to the house. There was one excellent queen bed in one of the rooms. The other queen bed is in need for an upgrade soon. I slept with my son in a partitioned "room" in the front of the house. The twin beds were old but the mattresses were somewhat firm and actually offered a goodnights sleep. The rest of the house was comfortable with a large eat in kitchen and a nice living room to unwind. The screened in porch was nice to eat meals in. When I go away I usually I fear coming to a place and getting grossed out. Not this house. The floors were clean and I felt super comfortable. Although the house furnishings were on the older side like I said it was clean including the bathroom. I think the cleaning service forgot to clean under the toilet (my only complaint) It took less than a minute to wipe it down and everything from that point on was great. I totally recommend this house for others. The owner states right up front to bring sheets and towels which I like to do anyway.

Private and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

We're a family of 5 and this cozy cottage was large enough to accommodate us. It is nicely decorated, immaculate, and included all the amenities of home, except a washer/dryer. The location and large, secluded property was wonderful. The house sits back off the road in a wooded lot, and although the owner described it as dark and isolated, it is in a neighborhood with lots of charming houses. The large screened porch is fantastic, and the large, private yard really is a bonus, especially for children. Carol, the owner, was very accommodating. I look forward to staying here again sometime.

Quiet retreat in NJ

  • 5 of 5

Carol was great to rent from, the property was adorable, and everything was perfect for my parents, my sister & her husband, and their 2 girls, while they were in town for our wedding! Great for a family on a relaxing Jersey shore visit!

This house is located in a quiet, beautiful neighborhood, which was perfect for me and my friends. Seaside Heights beach is just a ten minute drive, and there are pharmacies and grocery stores close by. The house was comfy but bigger than we expected, and everything was clean and organized. Carol was helpful with whatever questions we had and patiently answered me before, during and after our stay. Not only would I recommend this property to a friend, but I'd also come and stay again myself.

Owner's Response: Thank you Monica, I'm so happy you enjoyed your stay. I must say I love the area also. So peaceful and relaxing, yet close enough to plenty of activities. I'm glad the home was better than you expected, my pictures do not do it justice, and when the flowers are in bloom, it's really pretty. I like to keep my homes, as comfortable as I would like to live in them, and please feel free to come back anytime.
