"Fabulous vacation! Our family rented this stunning waterfront home for a 2.5 week getaway to close out the summer and celebrate our parent's wedding anniversary. I cannot tell you how perfect this home is. From the minute I spoke to Elyse, I felt like she was a neighbor letting us use her beautiful home. She was beyond helpful in answering all questions regarding the house, pool, and even gave us unbelievable recommendations for everything from restaurants to ice cream shops and grocery stores.
I am a serious clean freak so trust me when I say the house was in PRISTINE condition. The property was absolutely gorgeous inside and out and there was plenty of room for our family of 10. The décor is so tasteful, the rooms are comfortable and spacious and allowed for the adults and kids to enjoy their stay.
The location is perfect for anything that you would need from food to entertainment and has unbelievable proximity to the beach provided it is only ONE BLOCK away. The pool area and cabana were our favorites. We enjoyed appetizers and cocktails at the cabana bar while watching TV and had too many laughs to count. My brother and I loved cooking together in the spacious kitchen, and we walked or biked everywhere in Monmouth Beach and the 3 miles to Pier Village in Long Branch. The kids stayed easily amused with the pool, hot tub, basketball hoop, man-made "bay beach" and the view of the water was extremely peaceful.
We are very lucky to enjoy family vacations each year but this trip proved to be one of our favorites! It was truly perfect and we will have memories that will last a lifetime. As we were leaving, we even told Elyse which weeks we wanted in 2017. A great home for a family or a group of friends to enjoy, it really was like a resort, and we highly recommend this rental property to all—it was worth EVERY PENNY!"
