A great place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came down to Point Pleasant Beach for just a couple days in the first week of March. We were bringing a small dog with us so we selected a cottage with a fenced in back yard. Darlene and John's cottage has a great back yard! My little dog had a ball dashing around the yard chasing a ball. The cottage itself is a very well maintained and nicely decorated; a convenient place to relax and get away from the daily grind.

The kitchen is fully furnished with everything you need and more. The bedrooms have nice linens, pillows, and the beds are very comfortable.

Darlene is very easy to deal with and quite helpful. She was kind enough to leave us a delicious organic wine, which we enjoyed. And Darlene recommended a really good organic brunch spot that was wonderful. Everything turned out fine.

We were pleased.

Perfect Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We moved from this area two years ago and came back to visit friends. Love the neighborhood, very close to everything but just tucked away enough to avoid the congestion of downtown. The house is a gem, my friends and I loved the decor and took lots of inspiration pictures. The house is clean and quaint and just perfect. We cooked in the updated kitchen which was well stocked and again beautifully decorated. The kids played duck duck goose in the backyard and the ladies sipped wine on the back patio and lounged in the cozy living room. We can't wait to come back!!

I would give 10 stars if that were an option!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at many VRBO homes. I have to tell you that once you stay here, it is hard for anyone else to compete. The owners were so responsive from the start. I needed to change my plans and they immediately helped me. The home was beyond beautiful, and every detail that you could imagine of was thought of. Even leaving a dog bowl with water. You could tell that the owners really wanted to make you feel welcomed. I honestly hated to leave. I wish that I could find this type of home and hospitality everywhere, but the bar is raised so high with this experience, it will be hard for anyone to come close. All I can say is many thanks. It was an awesome stay!
