Great location with a clean and updated beach house.

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect for us. Close to good beaches. Close to a cute beach town complete with shops and restaurants. Larry was very easy to get in touch with and was staying close by in case we needed anything (which we didn't). I would recommend this to anyone who was looking for things to do in Sea Bright, Rumson and Sandy Hook. The only thing I would recommend to travelers is to bring some toilet paper and shower supplies. Grocery stores are close by so it's not a big issue. Everything else you need for a long weekend is there. Thanks Larry!

Beautiful Home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The home is extremely spacious and clean and very comfortable. We loved having coffee on the terraces and the house is a one minute walk from a few great seafood restaurants. The owner lives nearby and was very responsive when we needed a few things. It is a short walk over the bridge to beautiful beaches and great biking along Sandy Hook.

Great location and view, underwhelming cleanliness

  • 3 of 5

We were in the area to visit family and wanted a house that could fit all of us instead of staying in multiple hotel rooms. This home is beautiful and in a great location. The manager did not contact us prior to our stay, but was available to meet us the day of. When we arrived, we found that the home had been falsely advertised and only had three beds instead of four leaving one couple sleeping on the pull out couch which we ended up having to buy sheets for. It was surface clean, but didn't feel like it had been thoroughly cleaned in a while. Although it was advertised that linens were provided, they were mismatched and scattered around, making it difficult to find what we needed. With a little TLC I think this could easily be a five star place. In full disclosure, this is our first time using Homeaway, but not our first time with this type of service.
