About the property

Located in the heart of Island heights this home is located near Toms River.

Fantastic setting in Island Heights near the Jersey Shore. Built in 1889, this Victorian home has modern upgrades yet the charm of bygone days. Enjoy an afternoon barbecue on the deck which overlooks the gorgeous gardens. An evening stroll to the river walk promenade along Toms River is a must! Just a few minutes away is the famous boardwalk at the Jersey shore. Enjoy sailing, boating, fishing, and crabbing.

The gourmet kitchen with bright breakfast nook greets you in the morning. Game night is always fun in the sun room. A cozy fireplace welcomes guests in the formal parlor. The first floor features a full bath with a fantastic sauna. As you ascend the stairs, you arrive at the landing with two Master Bedrooms which share a full bath. The third floor has two bedrooms with a Jack and Jill bath. The over-sized finished basement features gym equipment.

A laundry room, TV, Internet and air conditioning are just a few of the amenities. We also leave jars for catching firefly's in the gardens.

About Kim Abelite

I grew up in Island Heights and always thought of it as my true home. That's why we bought this home as a retreat for our family.

The thing I love most about Island Heights are the people that live in town. They will forever be my best friends and many are still there today. 50 years later, many of us still have an annual get together with our kindergarten teacher!

So aside from the sailing, boating, crabbing, fishing, bars and the Jersey Shore itself, the people are the best.

This is was my first rental on VRBO - being new to the system I was a little hesitant. All the what ifs went through my head. Well, let me tell you this rental went above and beyond all of my expectations. The owner kept us well informed about the amenities of the property and even had a neighbor available if we had any concerns. My family grew up in Toms River and we wanted a place to comfortably visit with my parents. This home hit all the marks. The house is immaculately maintained and is a star of the neighborhood. Before the visit was over we were already talking about a return visit - which we have already booked. I can not thank the owners enough for sharing there home with us.
