    This is our second year renting this property. It is close to the beach, convenient to shopping, and situated on a gorgeous block with friendly neighbors and exquisite gardens. If you have a dog, this is a wonderful place. There's a little, grassy park nearby that our dog simply loves to visit. The property owner is extremely professional, trustworthy, cordial and responsive. Our favorite thing about this property is its homey feel. It's spotless, with cozy furnishings and well-outfitted kitchen. We recommend it to families who like being close to the beach and who want easy access to a restful rental. We will be back!

    Comfortable, elegant shorehouse

    Reviewed by: Dorothy P. on

    Comment:

    Beautifully appointed and clean beach retreat. The unit contained everything we needed and more! The view from the porch was wonderful. Sitting drinking morning coffee on the porch while taking in the scenery started the days off right. The very short walk to the beach gave us a few moments to savor the excited anticipation of a day of relaxation. Evening strolls on the newly refurbished boardwalk (trex for comfort) capped the day off. I personally am anxious to see the refurbishing of some of the Asbury Park areas which are a short walk down the boardwalk. This wonderful shorehouse is an excellent value. I highly recommend it.

    Everything about this rental was great, from ease of booking to communication to the location to the apartment itself. The apartment is spacious and clean, the bed in the master bedroom is comfortable (we didn?t use the loft so we can?t comment on those beds), the kitchen is well stocked, and the location couldn?t be better. We got married during our stay and had pre-wedding photos taken here; our photographer told us this was the nicest not-at-home place he?d ever shot getting-ready-to-get-married photos. We will be back, and we absolutely will stay in this apartment again.

    Sweet comfort if you sleep in the bedroom, but the loft can be noisy, depending on your people's sensitivity. We appreciated so many practical things being provided, but could use random items ( baking tray, dish cloths, more silverware...). Once the weeding and more care is done on the cute patio and walkway, it'll be very lovely and welcoming. Overall, our girls' beach week was great fun chatting on the balcony and short walks to the beach and Asbury Park. Would probably do this again!

    Diane was a great host! We never met her in person, but she was super helpful before check-in and quickly arranged a friend to come over and help when we were having plumbing issues. The house itself is lovely! Slightly smaller than we were expecting, but definitely enough room for 3:4 guests. The location is perfect! A few houses down from the beach (beach views from balcony) and a short walk from Asbury park, which has a ton of great bars/restaurants. We would definitely stay here again!

    Located on the second floor with a view of the ocean, this adorable rental was just lovely. The bedwaa absolutely wonderful, where as in many places you get very uncomfortable beds. The owners had a lovely queen bed with a down blanket and tons of extra should we need them but we were fine! We were fortunate enough to be the first guests to use the new bathroom which is lovely! The water wouldn't get very warm in the shower but would in the sink. I'm sure it could have been fixed with the hot water heater but I didn't feel it necessary to bother Dianne, our host, over it because it wasn't a huge issue and we all just loved everything. Their is a loft with two single twins which is adorably set up. I can't say enough wonderful things about the rental. My only concern is if you can't walk up stairs then perhaps this isn't the rental for you. I would rent this gorgeous property again. It was spotless and adorable. Thank you for having us as your guest. We left you some k Cups a day a giant gallon of fresh water. We had a lovely weekend!

    We had a great stay! We were in Ocean Grove for a wedding and had our 5 month old and babysitter with us and there was plenty of room for all of us. We had an issue with the water and the owner immediately came over (within 10 minutes) and fixed the problem. It was cold at the beach having it be November but it was great to bundle up and walk just down the road to the beach. You can also walk to the Main Street in Ocean Grove and browse the shops or stroll down the boardwalk in Asbury Park. Would definitely stay here again. Such a charming house. Such a great location. Loved every minute!

    This was a good, solid, beach rental. Nothing fancy, but the location is really great, and it was quiet and clean. Lots of stairs, if that is important to you. Small suggestion: Evolve only sent us one email asking for us to pay a pet deposit if we have pets. They didn't send us anything prior to check in... Our advice: reach out to the owner if you need anything, NOT Evolve. She was very nice and responded to me right away. The one email I sent to Evolve about check-in they took 2 days to respond to, a day after we had already started our stay. Overall, I would rent this place again. It was clean and the location was perfect.

    House is okay (pictures make it look nicer) and location is very good. However, when smoke alarm in vaulted living room started chirping every 30 seconds, it took approx. 15 hours (overnight) for owner to even return call. Bedroom very small with broken light (again, not resolved). Place was surface clean, but dishes and coffee pot were dirty. Only 2 dishwasher tabs supplied. LOTS of hidden fees included in rental.
