    I spent new years week in utter peace, tranquility and comfort....perfect place for rest and relaxation in small seaside community....clean and organized home with every possible amenity....the kitchen had everything for preparing a gourmet meal and the beds and furniture were perfect....two levels of deck space ideal for sunrises and warm weather relaxation....Jeff was ideal to work with but everything went so smoothly that I didn't need him for anything....and that is the epitome of a well run rental! thanks for a great experience all around! 02 January 2015 - 18:19:27

    We spent the Thanksgiving holiday in this lovely home, and it was perfect for our needs. 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, and pullout couch - we easily fit 5 adults and our dog (which was a last minute request from us that the own very happily accommodated!). The house is a block from the water, a 15 minute walk to Sandy Hook/Long Branch, and 10 minute drive from our family's home. It was great location because I love to run and could easily do a morning run on Sandy Hook, my brother could use the Yoga studio down the street, and my dad would walk to the corner bakery and grab coffee and pastries for everyone. Everyone was happy! :) The house has a fully equipped kitchen (with ample dining space), a W/D, plus a beautiful front porch to sit and drink coffee in the morning (a back deck too but we didn't use it). The house was super clean (which is really what I care about), very well maintained, and the owners were incredibly responsive and helpful. We will definitely try and come back here as it's the perfect spot for our family - no matter the season! 20 December 2015 - 15:19:00

    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. 28 August 2016 - 19:42:00

    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! 01 July 2016 - 13:48:00

    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. 02 June 2016 - 13:49:00

    This was a great place for us to stay while in the area for a family wedding. Comfortable bed and great amenities. It is in a quiet fishing town near some really good eats. 28 May 2016 - 19:08:00

    Despite poor weather, we had a great stay at this house in Highlands NJ. The location of this house to the Jersey Shore & Downtown Manhattan could not have been better. From the planning of our trip to the day we left communications with the owners was excellent and timely.The house was as advertised. When back in the area, we will stay again !! 14 May 2016 - 12:34:00

    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. 21 May 2017 - 16:27:00

    I stayed here for 5 weeks during the Christmas holidays/ Blizzard of 2010. It was comfortable and felt like a home away from home. Great location for restaurants, food shopping, movie theater, etc. There are wonderful places for breakfast that are very reasonable and friendly. The neighbors are friendly as well which is always a plus! My golden loved the fenced in yard. Rent this property because the owners are accommodating and you will throughly enjoy your stay! 08 February 2011 - 00:17:49

    Clean, comfortable, spacious and well located. Excellent vacation rental for families or couples. Welcoming neigborhood with lots of great friendly restaurants. Wonderful view of the water from the balcony. Feels like a nautical home on the Jersey Shore with an easy compute into Manhattan. Could not be more pleased. 24 March 2011 - 20:29:10

    Had a fabulous one-week stay with lots of visiting family/friends on various days. House is compact, sleeps 6 comfortably (2 on the pull-out couch downstairs), and is extremely well laid-out and maintained, with two full baths -- one upstairs and one downstairs by the back entrance, for "sandy" returns from the beach! Super-comfy beds, and all the needed amenities inside and out, plus two open porches. Great seafood restaurants all around -- along the bay -- and lovely small bay beaches, some with lifeguards, aside from the beautiful Sandy Hook ocean beaches, of course, which are 5-minutes away -- just over the bridge. Jeff, the owner, was very responsive and helpful, and a pleasure to deal with. Will definitely return!! 14 August 2012 - 03:48:36

    A great place in a great location. Newly renovated, clean, well appointed, and comfortable. Close to the beach and within walking distance of good, inexpensive places to eat and drink. Good to see the Shore making a comeback after the hurricane. Sandy Hook is always a blast in the summer, and better for families and younger children than other parts of the Shore. The owners were very responsive and a pleasure to deal with. They were very cooperative and gave recommendations on where to eat and other local activities. This is the place for a comfortable and convenient stay at the Shore. 22 July 2013 - 23:36:35

    Great location, lots of good food nearby. Apartment well equipped and easy to check in and out. Owner available to answer questions. Lots of parking. Would definitely stay there again. 13 November 2017 - 21:11:00

    This duplex was nicely decorated and clean. The neighborhood has many restaurants and bars to offer and the house is central to other great towns just a short drive away. The only thing to note is that the walls are kind of thin and being a duplex, you cannot make much noise without disturbing other guests. Overall the stay was wonderful and Jeff was able to quickly accommodate me last minute. I would definitely stay here again. 12 May 2016 - 18:05:02
