“Charm and Comfort at the Jersey Shore”
Reviewed 6 December 2016 for a stay in June 2016

What a great place! It has every amenity - the kitchen is a dream. Love the porch -perfect for people watching. The owner, James, is great to work with and provides a fabulous primer on the house and the area. You just have to show up and read the book...it's all there!

“attention to detail”
Reviewed 5 December 2016 for a stay in June 2015

The house manages to be homey without being cluttered and clean without being antiseptic. While I agree with the reviews that have come before me, let me point out a few of my favorite details that make the space so welcoming.

Location: Beautiful tree lined street where you can sit on porch and rock for hours seeing only a few neighbors passing by. Yet only one block from the main drag of Ocean Grove with some great dining and food options, and a few minutes to the beach and Asbury Park.

The beds are very comfy, but the pillows go beyond comfy. Don't know where the got them but I was tempted to take them home with me.

Sunlight pouring through the stained glass window making jewel like patterns on the walls when I woke up.

Beautiful art. Particularly the lovely painting above the fireplace. But also the wonderful vintage photos sprinkled throughout, and the collection of vintage paint by number "paintings".

Colorful and clean design. It's nice to have beautiful decorative elements that nod to the history of the area without feeling like I'm drowning in chintz.

I just felt immediately at home and I'm sure you will too.

“Our Town meets Martha Stewart”
Reviewed 5 December 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This really gorgeous house appears to be something out of a Thornton Wilder play as you enter: beautifully restored façade and fantastic wraparound porch on a corner property. When you go in it still has all the lovely aspects of Victorian architecture but with a comfortable bright, modern, clean spin. I honestly didn't want to leave. The home is beautiful, but comfortable, classy without being stuffy.

The bed in our room was very comfortable. And I loved the morning light through the stained glass windows (only on the top so you have plenty of light.

The kitchen is a joy to cook in. Very well stocked with the basics and all the cookware you could need. As a host, James is really well organized. You really never had to guess where something was -- it was second nature. We had a nice large group and I think everyone was comfortable. Highly, highly recommended.

“Stunning Design and Relaxed Feeling”
Reviewed 23 November 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The property was exactly as described and actually even more lovely feeling than the pictures reveal. We liked the open feel of the house with its many rooms and well-designed layout. It felt big, yet intimate at the same time. The location to the beach is great, not too close (crowds, noise), yet not too far (schlepping beach gear). Proximity to 2 downtowns: quaint Ocean Grove and hopping Asbury Park, was the perfect balance. We liked feeling we are in a beach town. There really wasn't a downside, except maybe parking at times, but we need to walk more anyway!

“Sit back and relax (it's all you have to do)”
Reviewed 23 November 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Our stay was extremely enjoyable and we're planning to return again next summer. The house is spacious, spotless, wonderfully designed, and thoughtfully appointed. Everything you think you might need is close at hand, and everything you didn't consider is right there too. Once you step out he door, it seems that anywhere you might want to go is just an easy amble away. But don't forget to spend a few hours on the comfortable front porch, relaxing and watching the world go by. it's the best.
