We were pleasantly surprised with the property, especially its close proximity to the water.
The only minor issue was noise coming from the upper apartment which, although not annoying, was noticeable. Otherwise a great find!
Good Place, Great Location!
The cottage is right on the water and perfect for fishing. Everything was close by and we walked to the Bay Avenue Bakery for breakfast which was great. The reason for the 4 rating is that the bedroom and living room weren’t like the pictures and it needed a little TLC. Larry was very responsive however and our dog enjoyed being able to come along with us!
Property had a magnificent view of the water!! Appreciated that we could bring our dogs; valued that there were not rugs but wood/ laminate flooring . Apartment was essentially clean; so useful to have washer & dryer as well as a dishwasher. Bed very comfortable. Walking distance to excellent restaurants!! Only complaint was that there were limited pots and pans...but overall, we very much liked this property!! Hope to ere again!!
Lovely Getaway Right on the water
Had a lovely peaceful couple of days here, the apartment is very nice really clean and well equipped and perfect for a quiet getaway. The property is right on the water so the views and the sounds are amazing. I took both of my dogs which was a huge bonus and they thoroughly enjoyed the freedom of the little beach right next door. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay and can highly recommend this property.
This property is exactly as described. Location is awesome and the place was clean and welcoming - everything I needed was there. Larry is quick to respond to every inquiry and was very easy to work with. A great stay, thank you!
A Great Pet Friendly Waterfront Location in Highlands, NJ, Near to Sandy Hook and Local Restaurants
My wife and I, along with our beloved 9 year old minipin, were pleasantly surprised the moment that we walked into this highly affordable and reasonably spacious cottage.
We were cheerfully greeted by Larry (the owner), who introduced us to what would constitute our home for the next two weeks and the ensuing 2018 Christmas holidays.
Our cottage had a great room with a very open floor plan, containing kitchen, dining room and living room areas.
The great room's 10 windows permitted great bursts of sunshine to warm us up and brighten our new home everyday.
A full sized refrigerator, microwave and oven were likewise at our daily disposal, accompanied by the necessary array of cooking and dining implements and accessories every fully supplied kitchen must possess.
An extremely comfortable full length sofa and 2 large reclining chairs surrounded a wall mounted flat screen HDTV, displaying a vivid picture and crisp audio sound. We were also able to access HBO, Cinemax and Showtime pay per view channels to diversify our everyday viewing fare.
Our bedroom came with a comfortable queen sized bed and had a second HDTV. Our sleeping quarters also had an oversized closet, spacious enough to allow us to hide from sight all of the winter apparel and Christmas gifts that we had brought up from Florida with us for this year ending stay.
The cottage also provided us with an oversized bathroom where both my wife and I could simultaneously move about while we showered and prepared ourselves for the day's activities at hand.
Our cottage also had an outside porch just beyond our bedroom's sliding glass doors, which overlooked the the Atlantic Ocean's bay, and which we and our pet made use of everyday.
Another happy discovery consisted in learning that a large off street parking lot would likewise be at our disposal for our personal vehicle use for the duration of our stay.
Moreover, immediately next to this parking lot, we found that Highlands Township had created a small grassy enclosure specifically for pet owners to walk their dogs - most convenient and highly appreciated.
Finally, we soon learnt that a good number of fine restaurants were to be found in close proximity to our cottage, some readily within walking distance.
Larry, the cottage owner, lives on site on another property and, though he never bothered us, remained fully available to resolve any problem that we might have encountered with our rental (but there were none).
