We spent 2 weeks on vacation in Stone Harbor, 24 years after my wife had been working in the town as a student. We travelled from Scotland which sounds a fair distance but to be honest it was a 7 hour flight (6 hours on way back) from Glasgow direct into Newark Liberty and then just under 2 hours to Stone Harbor so very manageable indeed.
The apartment location is brilliant, deck looks into bay and we got some great sunsets. The immaculate beach is 10 minute walk away and all the chairs/umbrellas/body boards etc are supplied with the apartment so we all had a great time on the beach. The town is on your doorstep and all you need is within a few minutes walk. There is plenty of variety for restaurants with our favourite ending up being Bill's pancake house for breakfast.. hard to beat.
The apartment was ideal. A great size for ourselves and 2 teenagers, it had everything we required and was nice and clean on our arrival. The WiFi was great as it meant we could easily keep in touch with family and friends back in Scotland.
Stone Harbor itself is spotless, has great buzz about it, especially in the evening after dark, and is very safe to the point where we were happy for the kids (14 and 17) to wander around, go to the cinema or supermarket themselves.
There are many things to do around the area, we visited most of the boardwalks and local towns, all great for a wander, though for anyone coming from UK, note that no-one under 21 allowed in the casinos in Atlantic City !!
We will remember this vacation for a long time, the apartment went a long way to ensuring we had a great time and had everything we needed. I would highly recommend it. Cheers
