About the property

6 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath, Sleeps 13-15 comfortably

This beautiful, spacious beach home with central air and IN-GROUND, fenced in pool is waiting for you to create your beach vacation. The home is only 1 1/2 blocks to the beach and the boardwalk. Perfectly distanced from the crowds of the Jenkinson's Amusements (3 1/2 blocks), the house is in a residential neighborhood. Enjoy a fun day at the beach, come home,shower in our private outdoor shower, relax by the pool while barbecuing some dinner. If it's a cool breezy evening, unwind on the back porch (with flat panel TV) and have some great laughs while warming up by our beautiful fire-pit and having some drinks. Then, for some evening entertainment, walk up the boardwalk to Jenkinson's where there is fun for the whole family including rides, amusements, games, fun house and even the Jenkinson's Aquarium.

If you're looking for live music, you can head to Martell's Tiki Bar which has a stage and live entertainment while you can eat beachfront under the stars. Our house is perfectly situated to experience it all without even having to get in a car! However, if you do want to go exploring, you have much to choose from including Six Flags Great Adventure which is only a 30 minute drive. Golf and movie theaters close by. NO PROMS PLEASE

House is great but owner is slow to respond

  • 3 of 5

The house itself is a great location and plenty of space for everyone. As others have mentioned, definitely plan on shopping for essentials (toilet paper, paper towels, and other paper products) because there isn't much in the house or kitchen. You also need to bring your own towels. All propane tanks were empty when we stayed so we had to go fill one up. Also, the cover for the grill was damaged and it seemed like the grill hadn't been cleaned in years (perhaps it's just because we stayed late in the season and it's only cleaned once a year?).

Account owner was very quick to respond wen booking but once I paid I had to wait days or even a week to hear from them (and sent numerous followups). Was supposed to get our security deposit back within 30 days but took 44 days, 3 messages to the owner (without a response) and 1 message to VRBO directly.

Owner's Response: Thank you for review. I am sorry there were some issues. Normally all the tanks are full and there is a back up as well. If you would of called the contact person upon arrival, she would of filled the 2 up (the spare was already full). The security refund was simply a communication mix up but when alerted, it was paid in full that same day. I do appreciate your input and will learn from your experience so that future renters don't have similar experiences. Thanks again. I am glad you enjoyed the rental.

Great place for a weekend at the shore!

  • 5 of 5

The house has plenty of room for a big group (we had 15), with a spacious and functional layout of bedrooms, common areas, etc. Perfect location by the boardwalk and beach, though the backyard and pool are also good for hanging out. The kitchen is fully equipped plus there's an outdoor grill. Basic pots/pans, dishes and silverware are provided, as are sheets/pillows for the beds. Other essentials--towels, soap, dish detergent, trash bags, paper products, etc.--may be absent on arrival, so pack or shop accordingly. The owner was very responsive and accommodating with our arrival and departure timing. Took some follow ups to get the deposit back, but it was ultimately refunded in full without questions asked.

Great location, large house

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at the house with an old group of friends from college and our stay was great, we only stayed for a weekend but definitely could see doing a longer trip in the future. We had a group of 12 and found there to be more than enough sleeping arrangements ( though I will caution one "bedroom" is much smaller with a slanted ceiling, but worked well for a friend who was ill over the weekend). There is tons of outdoor space and plenty of seating, we did not use the pool much as we were so close to the beach but its a nice option.

The location was great a short walk to the beach/boardwalk and 5 minute drive to the local Stop and Shop, we ate dinner at Prime 13 and the uber was around $8. Only notes I have are to be mindful of parking as it gets busy during the weekend so when you can claim a spot don't move your car, and keep in mind that the beach is $9 a person to enter so make the most of it. Again overall a great experience, I had one question while I was there and was able to reach the owner right away who take care of my question.

Great location for business building weekend!

  • 4 of 5

The house was perfect for our business mastermind weekend. The kitchen and family room area enabled us to conduct discussions in a comfortable setting. Bedrooms were comfortable except that a few beds were missing mattress covers. Plenty of hot water for all the showers but you should bring extra paper products. The kitchen is a nice size but lacks enough utensils and place settings for the full capacity of the house. The one problem we did have was the inability to connect to the wifi. We had to resort to our own phone hot spots.

Overall this is a great house for large groups.

Owner's Response: Christine, Thanks for your review. We weren't aware that the utensils were slowly disappearing. Thanks for pointing that out and we have restocked them. As far as the WI-FI, a simple request to restart the router (after a bad storm) takes only a few minutes since the person doing it lives minutes away. The phone number was in the welcome book. I am sorry you didn't get to have WI-Fi. Again, thanks for renting the house and I am glad you enjoyed it.

Nice beach house with pool, easily accessible

  • 4 of 5

We had a large group stay over Labor Day weekend and overall had a great time. The house is very spacious, with lots of different sleeping accommodations (take note, the additional "child room" has a sloping roof that can make it fairly claustrophobic). The location is great, very easy to get to via NJ Transit, and only a block away from the boardwalk and beach that provided a lot of entertainment. If you plan to BBQ, clarify with the owners about propane ahead of time. There was not much left in the tank, but we eeked by since one of the owners initially suggested that we had to buy our own propane (something I've never seen before in a rental house) before sort of agreeing to cover it if it was really a big deal for us.

The one real negative was that, unlike some of the other reviewers, we found the owner difficult to communicate with. I would often have to send numerous texts, emails and leave voicemails before getting a response. After a respectable period after our stay, I tried to contact the owner about the return of our security deposit. After numerous texts, emails, phone calls, and voicemails, I simply received a brusque message that the security deposit would be returned within the 30 day period mandated by HomeAway. That deadline came and passed with nothing and it was only when I reminded the owner, more than a week afterwards, that the security was eventually returned.

Owner's Response: 1) We always have a full backup tank of propane so using more than 2 full tanks is highly unlikely. 2) I have never written a brusque text..I am very appreciative of all the renters. This person texted at least 30 times and I responded to each one in a timely fashion. 3) The refund was sent back after reviewing potential damage to the pool liner...we did not take any money from the refund even though the liner was fine prior to the weekend. (pool liner since repaired) 4) This is my only negative review in all the years of renting the house. It appears that the author had an agenda for some reason.
