    -- THE LOCATION --

    Known as Ocean Grove’s ‘Beach Block,’ this property’s location places you just steps from the Jersey Shore beach and boardwalk. Take advantage of this prime location and 2 provided beach badges by spending many days relaxing on the fine sand, laying out under the sun and playing in the ocean.

    Walk a couple blocks north on the boardwalk and you’ll run into the Asbury Park area, filled with popular spots for live entertainment, dancing, shopping and dining. See a show at The Stone Pony, a legendary venue for Rock music, hit the slots at Asbury Park Casino or the pinball machines at Silverball Museum.

    There are many options for dining along the coast in the Asbury Park area, and even more as you move inland along Wesley Lake. Enjoy a beer and German sausage on the rooftop patio at Asbury Festhall & Biergarten, and contemporary, counter-served cuisine at MOGO Korean Fusion Tacos.

    The property is also very close to the train station, so you can take a day trip to explore the surrounding area. New York City is a 1.5-hour train ride for time spent away from the beach in our country’s largest, most famous city.

    We have stayed many places both fall and summer. This had everything we needed for our weekend stay and more home- like than a hotel room - loved seeing the sun rise and know it was only a block to beach

    Great location in the NE part of Ocean Grove. While parking is always an issue in Ocean Grove, we were lucky to find a spot around the corner on a very busy Saturday (Annual, giant flea market).Furniture in living room comfortable as well as the queen-size bed.Kitchen accessories somewhat limited, e.g., kitchen towels and utensils for cooking. Even though there's a dishwasher, some of the eating utensils in the drawer were laden with dried up food particles!So, soaking and washing these utensils and a few plates was the first order of business after unpacking our stuff.I would have given 5 stars for cleanliness had it not been for the above referenced issues.The front porch is well equipped and spacious. Upstairs neighbors are friendly.

    The property mostly met our expectations, small but comfortable, close to the ocean, easy access. Lack of parking is a problem. The pictures of the living room in the listing made it look spacious and airy. The actual living room is dark and cramped. Not accurate at all.

    Reviewed by: Karen D. on


    Property was neat & clean, exactly matched online pics, and was very comfortable for 2 adults and 2 pug dogs. We had no problem with electronic door lock or any appliances. We especially loved the spacious bedroom. The closeness to the beach & Asbury Park boardwalk made the stay terrific! It is only a 10 minute walk to the main town stores, as well. Only negative is we would have preferred shades in the living room as you can see in at night with only the lace curtains. We loved our first time in Ocean Grove & this place was perfect for us!

    We enjoyed our long weekend at Diane’s place! You can’t beat the location, less than a block away from the beach. It was the perfect amount of space for 2 people and a dog. We had stayed in Asbury earlier this summer, decided to try a different neighborhood this time around and were pleasantly surprised. Ocean Grove is a very cute, quiet area with many charming Victorian homes. We especially enjoyed the covered front porch and close location to the beach. The temp dropped quite a bit while we were there, so we could have used another throw blanket. A body wash, shampoo, conditioner would have been nice as well, as we’ve become accustomed to being provided these items. The keypad entry made it very easy to come and go.

    ? Our cottage is less than one block from the beach and broadwalk which we enjoyed every day. The cottage was clean and big enough for 2 of us and our dog. The neighborhood is beautiful and safe with plenty of parking in the street. The bed is comfortable but a little noisy. The kitchen has everything you need. Our stay here was great.

    Had a wonderful time! This spot is perfect for a small family or couple. The convenient location to everything was perfect! It was a short hop, skip and a jump to the beach...(literally 1/2 block) and where we were also able to stroll a lovely (and scenic) few blocks into town in OG for some Nagel?s ice cream.... then to Asbury for dinner at the many restaurants. I grew up coming down to Ocean Grove for vacation every summer and am happy that my husband and little girl now love it as much as I do.

    Excellent location and Just as described

    Reviewed by: Jessica L. on


    This is a small place, but works perfectly for a family of 4. It's just as described, and the location can't be beat - just a short block to the beach. Asbury Park is easily walkable, either on the boardwalk or through the town. We had a small issue with the electronic door lock, but I reached out to the contact and she was very responsive and had it fixed within a few hours. It was great that we could have our dog with us as well, and there were lots of places to walk him since he wasn't allowed on the beach or the boardwalk. The only small issue is that there is definitely a faint smell of cigarettes; the place is nonsmoking, but it's clear that someone was smoking in there at some point in the past. It's most noticeable on the mattress on one of the pull-out couches. Fortunately the breeze and the two air conditioners can quickly clear the smell out of apartment. We would definitely rent again!

    Overall the experience was very nice. Loved that it was dog friendly. Worked out well with our dogs. Had some trouble with the front door lock, but owner was great and help w/the problem. In the description says sleeps 4, but is hard with the location of bathroom being in the only bedroom. And if it sleeps 4, there should be 4 beach badges. Loved the supply of towels and sheets and coffee, tea and napkins etc. in kitchen. Parking is difficult but that goes with the type of area it is. Otherwise a pleasant experience. Would consider renting again.

    I rented this spacious one bedroom apartment for the weekend of April 28th and it was absolutely perfectly located within walking distance to the beach, boardwalk, shops in Ocean Grove and also the main shops in Asbury. The apartment was extremely clean and welcoming. It was lovely to have coffee waiting upon arrival and some bottled water. I absolutely plan on renting from this lovely women again and ask that everyone please keep this lovely little apartment clean and neat so she can keep her prices more than reasonable.
