My wife and I stayed here with our one year old daughter last summer and it was ideal. It's a great and quiet neighborhood in walking distance to the beach and NJTransit station (which was great as we were coming from NYC). We found the clean, ranch-style layout perfect for small children. We particularly enjoyed the deck and grill. The owner was extremely accommodating, making sure we had access to anything we would need. If we can come back to Spring Lake in 2013, we'll definitely stay here again.
The owner was terrific,welcoming and accommodating. A very clean house and well appointed. Quiet street. My only reason for possibly not returning would be the distance from the beach. We have small children and walking was too far for them. Really do need the car. If that's not a concern for you, then this is a great house.
My husband and I stayed in this apartment in March of 2011 with our two teenaged sons. I can't say enough good things about it. First of all, the photos do accurately represent the apartment. It is spotlessly clean and well decorated in a modern, minimalistic style. The location is perfect. Probably a five minute walk from the Plaza Mayor, and five minutes from the Palacio Real, in the austrias district. We felt very safe at all times of the day and night. Its on a pedestrian street, so its very quiet. Its about a minute's walk from the old city hall and a grocery store. Also about 2 minutes from the famous tapas bar street, whose name escapes me at the moment.
The people at Spain Select made the whole process so easy and were very accommodating. I can't say enough good things about this place or Spain Select
