It is like having your own beach hideaway. We provide all of the linens, beach chairs and towels. You just pack your bag and everything you need is here!
James Bond suite is right next door to Asbury's premier B&B, Mikell's Big House. You will be invited to her legendary porch parties and be given the insiders map to Asbury Park. And please feel free to bring your dog! We are a pet friendly place.
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
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!
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.
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!
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!
We were able to take our dogs away & not worry about them! Good location! Perfect for what we needed. Everyone was very accommodating! This was our first time here, we will be back!!!
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!
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!
We ended up staying in "White Party" which is the upstairs unit in the carriage house at the back of this property. The place was clean and the kitchen was well-stocked. One thing that would be nice is a hose/outside shower to avoid bringing sand into the unit. There wasn't a good way of avoiding bringing sand inside after beach days. The location is alright. It's walking distance from the train station and just two blocks to the beach. Overall, we had a great time in Asbury!
Enjoy staying in your own apartment, 3 blocks from Asbury Park's exciting beach and boardwalk! Walk to world class restaurants, bars, live music venues and great shopping. Perfectly situated close to the beach and Asbury Park's bustling, eclectic downtown
