About Jimmy Steindecker

The house is owned by me, Jimmy Steindecker. I am close friends and business partners with Mikell Towery, who owns the B&B next door, called Mikell's Big house. Mikell is the manager and runs this newly renovated property with the same care she shows her guests at her B&B. While you will have more privacy at the hideaway, you will still be invited to Mikell's legendary Saturday afternoon porch parties next door.

Jimmy Steindecker purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Jimmy Steindecker chose Jersey Shore

I bought this property right next door to Mikell's Big House in order to have Asbury Park's premier hostess make sure guests have a great stay! Mikell's personal knowledge of Asbury and all it has to offer ensures a truly memorable experience. She will provide you with her own map of Asbury Park (highlighting the best places) and make sure you know what is going on in town!

What makes this apartment unique

Each apartment in the hideaway is unique. All have Mikell's signature eclectic style, but you choose the one which is right for you. They all have fully equipped, new kitchens, Fios with all channels, wi-fi, air conditioning, all new baths and comfortable beds.

Cozy home, close to everything you could want!

  • 4 of 5

Great space, Mikkel was very helpful during our entire stay (11 nights).

It wasn't exactly spotless, but it was for the most part clean.

Perfect size for a couple... my husband and I stayed with our "babies" (our dog and our cat) during his winter block leave from his training post in Louisiana. This is such a cozy place in a great location, we were very happy to find something like this that was pet friendly (always a non negotiable for us!)

Best Hangout in Asbury Park

  • 5 of 5

Both Mikell and Jimmy have two awesome properties next door to each other on 4th Avenue in Asbury Park. We have been staying during the weekends all summer and love it! Highly recommended!

This is a convenient and friendly place for your getaway!

  • 4 of 5

Mikell made us feel right at home and she is a wealth of Asbury information-follow her tips, and great meals and sights are in store for you, with a sparkle and laugh to go with her knowledge!

Our dog was happy there too! Asbury's very dog friendly!

Parking can be a challenge, but who needs a car at the beach? Asbury is walkable.

The James Bond suite is beautifully finished, with a truly artistic flourish, and supplied adequately for a getaway.

We'll be back!

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

It was our first stay in Asbury and we will be back. It's an interesting town with a lot to offer within walking distance of the unit or a very short drive away. The accommodations are great for those wanting a kitchen and dining area AND it allows dogs. Mikell was helpful and accommodating making sure our unit was cool enough for our baby during some unusually hot weather and going out of her way to arrange an early check in/late check out. We look forward to our next visit!

Great Base for Exploring Asbury Park

  • 3 of 5

All in all we had a great stay in the James Bond suite, which served as our home base for exploring the Asbury Park region. The location was perfect for me and my husband - 3 blocks from the beach - and since we brought our bikes, we didn't need to use/move our car once over 4 days! This was key for a relaxing vacation. Also, Mikell next door had GREAT recommendations for restaurants & goings on around town.

The pictures and description of the place are accurate, and everything was clean, but there are a few things that would make for an even more comfortable experience...

1) There was a beautiful breeze during our whole stay, but since the back window in the bathroom is painted shut, you can't get a good cross-ventilation in the apt. There is only one small AC/no floor or ceiling fans, so it was somewhat stuffy. No problem since you can sit out on the porch, but a little inconvenient if you need a few minutes to chill with privacy. Installing a ceiling fan above the bed would work wonders!

2) The apartment could be slightly better stocked in terms of linens; we only had 2 towels (for the shower) and no bath-mat. We were able to get more towels from the B&B next door. While we were accommodated, it was perceived as an odd request that we wouldn't want to get water all over the floor.

3) There needs to be a doormat (so as not to track a ton of sand in) and a drying rack (to let your bathing suits/towels dry out.)

Of course if you're visiting Asbury Park you'll mostly be out and about, but those few details would make this place much more "like home" in-between beach sessions & karaoke at the Wonderbar!

Owner's Response: Hi Rachel, I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay in Asbury Park and hope you will visit us again. Thank you for bringing these issues to our attention, which we plan on addressing immediately after our busy Labor Day weekend. We seem to run low on towels and bath mats at the end of the summer season, and will replenish our stock. Thankfully, we have Mikell next door, who has plenty of extra supplies to meet our guest's needs. I didn't realize that the bathroom window was stuck. We will be sure to get it 'unstuck' so that there will be cross-ventillation. I also think that the ceiling fan is a great idea and we will address this in the Fall. We greatly appreciate your constructive comments which will enable us to enhance the experience of our future guests. Thanks again, Jimmy
