Wonderful house!!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to rent a house in the Highlands for a final beach weekend away for the summer. We found this house and it had everything we were looking for! The house is absolutely beautiful, and had every possible amenity you could think of! And the location couldn't have been more perfect! It was so relaxing sitting on the deck in the evening and watching the water! The street was so quiet, you almost didn't realize that there were houses next door!

Robin was amazing and very accommodating and gave us her cell phone so we could text her if we needed anything!

All in all, just an amazing house, amazing owner and amazing time! Looking forward to going back next year!!

Great house and location

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to rent this house for the second year in a row. Just like last time, we found the house to be impeccably clean. The house has everything we could have possibly needed (coffee pot, iron, hair dryer, you name it!). We love the location, as we took our morning runs over the bridge to the beach and a short walk for lobster, sangria and ice cream at Moby's in the evening. We look forward to our next stay in this great house.

Although I grew up in New Jersey, I'd never been to this part of the Jersey Shore. Very interesting area historically, i.e. old lighthouses, bootlegging. You can sit on the deck and watch boats on the river, and at times, jets overhead. At first we had a problem with the dryer, but Robin had it handled in less than an hour. Close to everything you need, yet quiet at night. It's a trip sitting on the beach at Sandy Hook and seeing the skyscrapers of lower Manhattan in the distance. You can take a ferry there if you desire. Thanks Robin

Fantastic home at the shore with great views

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful house and a great base for stay at the shore. It is ideally situated for Sandy Hook, easily walkable to some great local bars and restaurants and conveniently located for access to main roads to the shore if you can tear yourself away from the balcony and the lovely views of the water. The house itself has everything you could need and is in lovely condition. We came over for my sister's wedding nearby and found this the perfect base - I really couldn't recommend this enough.

Excellent shore rental - great location!

  • 5 of 5

This house has a wonderful location--near restaurants (go to Bahrs!), ice cream, Sandy Hook and the Sea Streak ferry. The house is clean and well-stocked. We enjoyed the breeze and views from the upper deck. We also appreciated Robin providing the pass to Sandy Hook with the rental. Robin was lovely to work with--she provides a lot of local information and is easily accessible via text or email.

This was the perfect house and location for our family. The view from the deck was beautiful and relaxing! We walked to dinner, for a drink and ice cream! The house was so clean and had everything and anything we could have needed. It was even better than the pictures we saw on-line. We used the beach pass every day and had perfect weather for our mini beach getaway. We knew Robin was available if needed, but since she provided such great information in the house, we didn't need a thing. We look forward to renting again and highly recommend this wonderful house in a perfect location.
