Wonderful Stay, Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Stone House apartment during our trip to Atlantic City this past summer. It was wonderful. Everything is within walking distance, Vetnor City was only a couple of blocks away, and the Atlantic City boardwalk is within walking distance. The beach is only a block away and is much quieter than if you were staying right on the main strip making it perfect for small kids and families. The owners provide beach chair, towels, and an umbrella for your beach excursions as well as any necessities in the house. Upon arrival the owners were there to meet us and show us around the place. they left us a bowl full of snacks as well as a fridge stocked with waters and such. They also knew we had three small children traveling with us so they left them each a shovel and pail and a huge lollipop. The kids loved it. The Apartment is comfortable, the beds were great, and overall it was a wonderful experience. the only minor issue we had was we were unable to connect to the wifi most of the time probably due to the old brick and stone in the house. Other than that though it was great we are already planning our trip for next summer!

Thank you again for the wonderful place to stay.

Perfect for family beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

Katy and Tom were amazing hosts and provided us with a wealth of information on the area in the apartment. We were also greeted with a basket of goodies and small gifts for our kids to use at the beach. The apartment was immaculate and accommodations were exactly as stated. We couldn't have picked a better place to stay for our short beach vacation and we were more than satisfied!

Loved our time at The Rock House

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four enjoyed our short stay in the basement apartment. It was exactly what we expected. The whole place was very clean and had very comfortable beds. It had a fully equipped kitchen that would have been a pleasure to use. We just took advantage of the refrigerator. The back yard is adorable. We would definitely recommend this property. Watch the height though. We were all 5'5" to 6'-0. The guys had to duck under some of the pipes but it was well worth it for the location, situation in the beautiful neighborhood, and adjacency to Atlantic City. Thanks Katy and Tom!

Great experience at the Rock House apartment.

  • 5 of 5

My friend Jennifer and I along with my dog Winnie really enjoyed our stay at the Rock House basement apt. The owners live on site and are very welcoming, helpful and friendly! The apt was very clean and as we entered we could see all the goodies they left for us. There were several air conditioning units so it was very pleasant inside. Beds were comfortable, kitchen was great and living room was fine. There were three or four steps down to entryway from a really nice private back yard with large wrought iron table and chairs for our use. The neighborhood is nice and safe too! It's about 1 1/2 blocks from beach which is beautiful there. Sue

Homey, welcoming, and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The Stone House apartment was exactly what we had hoped for. Homey and comfortable, in a perfect location, close enough to the AC frenzy, yet far enough to get away from it. An easy drive to everywhere we wanted to go. 15min to Brigantine, 15min to Somer's point. Easy Peasy. Katy and Doc have put every effort into making you feel at home with a nice little welcome basket and quick lookup information on local attractions, food, grocery, etc.

We had a great time! Thank you Katy and Doc!

Very satisfied!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to book a last-minute beach getaway near Ocean/Atlantic City that included our two small children (3 months and 3 years). We couldn't have found a better place! My mother came with our family and we didn't want to spend our life's savings on a fancy two-bedroom suite in a hotel. The basement apartment is clean and simple and more than worth what was charged for a Friday and Saturday night stay. The queen beds are comfortable and all of the linens and towels are provided in abundance. There is a welcome book, wifi, an activity book for the area, and even a basket full of snacks and a small assortment of complimentary drinks in the fridge! The fact that it was only a block from the beach made it very convenient to bring the little ones back for nap time to cool off from the 95 degree, sunny days. We didn't know what the neighborhood would be like since it was only about a mile from the casinos, but it was a nice, safe neighborhood with lots of beautiful, big houses to look at on our walks. The beach by the Rock House was sprawling and clean with soft white sand and plenty of room to find a spot. As it was described in the listing, the pipes do hang low from the ceilings, which was only a problem for my husband because he is 5'10" and the rest of us are under 5'0". It's got everything you need in a kitchen, so we had all of our meals at the place except for dinner one night where we ate at a delicious Japanese Hibachi Steakhouse down the road. There is a 4 adult and 2 child limit for the apartment, but if we do plan to visit again with a small party, we will definitely look up the Rock House!
