About Jeff

Married Professional couple in our 30's. We love the town and the Jersey Shore

Jeff purchased this house in 2009

Why Jeff chose Highlands

This is a beautifully maintained corner property unit. Great water views and sunset views from the rear deck.

What makes this house unique

Beautifully renovated with immaculate bathrooms, bright rooms and brand new fenced-in backyard. It's a quick bike ride / short walk to the beach, walking distance to waterfront restaurants and bars. Close to NYC ferry, NYC bus and trains. Free seasonal parking pass at Sandy Hook. Our favorite thing to do is sip coffee in the terrace enjoying the view of the river and ocean and have lunch across the street at the famous Windansea or Inlet Cafe.

Such a lovely house and very welcoming.

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting New Jersey after a very busy week at our son's Graduation in Tennessee; we were looking forward to just getting to the house and relaxing for a few days...... we were not disappointed. We received entry details to house via email from Jeff prior to our arrival along with directions to the property. We arrived and found that everything was very welcoming for us. The house itself was just as it is pictured and the location was perfect. We had a lovely week in Highlands and met quite a few local people who were wonderful ...... everyone is so friendly. We have already started to look at flights etc. for our holiday next year to Jersey Shore and we hope that we can stay here again.

If we had any questions about the house during our stay I would simply email Jeff and he would respond within the hour which was reassuring.

Thank you Jeff! Hope to be in touch soon.

We had great time and Jeff was so responsive, even had a locksmith come out on a Sunday night when the back door lock wouldn't catch. Place is clean and comfortable and we lived sitting on the front porch and watching the the river.

Nice house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Highlands in a cute town and the house is near several waterfront bars and restaurants, all within walking distance. It's a short drive to Sandy Hook National Park, Sea Bright Beach and plenty of other beaches along the shore. The house is comfortable and clean. Thanks Jeff, we had a great week!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. You can see Sandy Hook from the front porch. There are restaurants close by as well as a fresh seafood shop if you prefer cooking yourself. Jeff is a very responsive host. The place appears to be newly renovated and is very comfortable.
