Great Balance of Vibrancy and Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with a friend during our first trip to Asbury Park. Bill was such a gracious host, who gave great suggestions for places to eat, drink, and play. He was always available if we had questions and the unit we stayed in had everything we needed including beach gear! The house is short walk to downtown and the beach, yet in a quiet location so we felt relaxed when we were there. I would definitely stay here again.

Cute apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time during our stay here! Being so close to the boardwalk, beach and Cookman Ave, this charming apartment is very central!

Bill was extremely nice and accomodating and we would not hesitate to stay here again.

Perfect for Our Stay

  • 5 of 5

We love Asbury and our time here was exactly what we were hoping for. We had our own little apartment with full kitchen and bath. We had very good wifi and extended cable channels. We had a short walk to the great restaurants on Cookman and it was an easy walk to the boardwalk and beach. The owner Bill is a very nice and accommodating host. We'll be back!

A very nice cozy retreat in Asbury Park

  • 5 of 5

Bill owns and operates a large home in Asbury Park located 2 blocks from most everything the area has to offer including the beach and boardwalk in one direction and all of the great pubs, restaurants and shops located on Cookman Avenue.

I rented the 3rd floor apartment which included a very nice living room, ample bedroom with a very comfy bed and a nice kitchen and full bath.

Bill thought of everything in terms of amenities including beach towels, linens, kitchen needs, TV, internet, and a whole lot more.

Great home, fantastic location and a truly thoughtful and caring owner. I would stay here again if I was looking for a place in Asbury Park.

Wish we could have stayed longer!

  • 5 of 5

Let me start off by saying our vacation was cut super short due to a family emergency and even though we didn't get to stay long I had to write a review since the owner was super nice. As soon as we got there he showed us around and sat with us to explain the area and what was his favorite places were. The place was super clean and had everything you could think of, very homey. I would definitely go back and highly recommend staying here. Super close to everything. Thanks Bill for your hospitality!

Location, location

  • 4 of 5

Great location for beach and downtown. Peaceful apartment for down time. The apartment is on the third floor so I would not recommend for those that have trouble with steps. There's more amenity's available than what I remember reading before I got there such as beach chairs, beach buggy to bring stuff to beach, beach towels and lunchboxes to use. The kitchen is great for making food/ packing food for longer stays. I haven't received my security deposit back yet and I'm not sure if I won't receive it at all for some reason. That's my only concern.
