Cottage by the sea
This very clean cottage by the sea is lovely. The water views are fantastic! We had dinner at BYOB's for 2 nights - Fresh Bistro and Il Lago. Both wonderful. Friendly staff!
Wonderful stay in Highlands
The location of this cottage is pure gold. You are walking distance to great bars and restaurants and a short 10 minute walk over the bridge to a free beach. It's also a short drive or Uber over to sea bright where you can go for even more great restaurants and live music. Also if you have a day that isn't great for the beach, I'd recommend taking the short drive to Pier Village in Long Branch for some nice outdoor shopping.
You can look out the front windows anywhere in the apartment and see the river. It's in the only spot where boats can get from the river to the ocean so you really get a lot of boat traffic out front, especially on the weekends. It was beautiful. We spent many mornings and night caps sitting out on the little balcony watching the boats. It made just hanging out in the apartment a vacation experience. That being said, if you want the place to be immaculate, this probably isn't the place for you. It was a little dusty and sandy upon arrival, the floors are a bit scratched up and the furniture is a little old, but for us that wasn't a big deal. We did hear a bit of noise from upstairs and the dog woke me up once in the night. In my opinion the price reflects these inconveniences.
The property manager Larry was absolutely great to deal with. He was there to answer questions if we needed but was not intrusive at all. When my husband accidentally left his gold chain on the cottage, Larry dropped it in the mail for us that day.
Overall we had a wonderful stay and would definitely book again in the future!
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.
