A 45 minute ferry ride to Manhattan or a 10 minute drive ( 30 min bike ride) to the glorious beaches of Sandy Hook National Park. We walk to our local beach and community sailing club. The primary rental is the master bed w/ private BR + 2 add B/R
Want to take in Manhattan but leave the noise and prices behind, stay with us and find an undiscovered Victorian little town with great bars and restaurants that you can walk to and stumble home if needs be!
Many of our guests take advantage of our two bikes to ride (flat) to Sandy Hook Gate way National Park which has the most beautiful of beaches in New Jersey. We have a lovely quiet back yard with a Gas BBQ available for guests use. We are a popular destination for New Yorkers and the boroughs especially Brooklyn , we can collect you and your luggage from the Seastreak ferry terminal in Atlantic Highlands or Highlands or you can walk or catch a local cab. You don't need a car rental, our town's bars and restaurants are a 12-15 minute walk , in a pedestrian friendly community.
Access to all common areas including lovely back yard with BBQ gas grill and firepit. If you let me know ahead of time I can ensure firewood is purchased and available our local store sells small bundles for about $10 or bring your own.
Interaction with guests
We are both available to assist you with travel plans and if we are around pick up and drop off at the ferry terminal a 15 minute walk away. This is our everyday home ,we will be either in a bedroom on the second floor or in the lower level bedroom. We are a great fit for couples who want to take advantage of the beaches and night life. We need to discuss kitchen use for other than making coffee or a light breakfast etc.
Use of the BBQ is not a problem but coordinating groups using the kitchen for elaborate dinner meals is problematic as you might understand .
Other things to note

We have a two man sit on kayak with life jackets on our beach,please coordinate with Don if you want to use. Yes there is a story behind that comment !
