Get comfortable and unwind in this spacious queen bedroom. Sit on the front porch and enjoy the peaceful street and beautiful sunset. Or for a little more privacy hang out on the back patio. Had enough sunshine? Relax in the living room. Feel like cooking? You have full use of the kitchen, dining room, and bbq grill. In the morning make yourself coffee or tea and have some yogurt and fruit before heading out for the day.
Shared full bathroom plus an outdoor shower! Shower products provided. (additional 1/2 bath located on 2nd floor)
The home is equipped with WiFi, central air/heat and water filtration as well as ceiling fans in every room. While many updates have been made, please keep in mind that along with all the charm come the quirks of an older home!
I do live here full time and enjoy spending time with my guests when appropriate. Otherwise when home I tend to stay in my own space upstairs - if I am not enjoying the front porch!
We are not your typical shore town: the boardwalk and Cookman Ave with unique shops, a variety of bars with a style and ambiance for everyone, amazing restaurants, live music at many venues (e.g. Stone Pony) and first Saturdays (all restaurants, shops and galleries stay open late) continue to impress visitors!
There are several bicycles for guest use. Taxi service. And abundant parking on a quiet, neighbor friendly street if you have a car.
Convenient to Garden State Parkway (exit 102 South bound/ exit 100 North bound, NJ Turnpike (exit 11 South bound to GSP/ exit 7A North bound to I-195)
NJ Transit train. Pick up/drop off possible at Asbury Park Station - just ask!
Just 30 minutes to Six Flags Great Adventure.
Nearby shopping includes a big Marshall's/Home Goods, Target, premium outlets, Monmouth Mall, and grocery - e.g. Wegmans.
Truly is just like home - only cleaner! Donna was great with communication before and during. We love older homes so it was fun seeing the inside of an older shore home. The bed was new and comfortable. The kitchen was immaculate and available to us. Loved hanging out on the porch with comfy chairs and a throw blanket available. Not walkable to beach but was not a concern for us. Certainly bikeable though. Seemed like a safe neighborhood too.
My sister and I stayed at Donna's for Labor Day weekend and had a great experience. Her place is charming, clean and has all the amenities you need (the outdoor shower is a must try!). The location is a short walk or even shorter drive to the beach and downtown area. Donna was a warm and gracious host, very accommodating in allowing us to check in early and made sure we had everything we needed during our trip. We love Asbury and this is a great way to stay, hope to be back again soon!
Great experience staying at Donna's house! The house is beautiful and well kept. Donna herself is easy going and generous. This was our first Airbnb experience and we're sure to be back again.
My boyfriend and I had such a lovely time last year at Donna's that we decided to return this year, and had a lovely time again! Highly recommended, close to the beach, easy access to highways to get to other beaches, and nice and quiet neighborhood!
Donna's place was a very friendly and inviting home. I didn't get a chance to stay for the night but I enjoyed Donna's home very much. Donna herself was very friendly and allowed us to use her home in any way we wanted. Using the shower outside was very relaxing on a hot summer day and I will be booking with Donna again later. The room we booked was clean and had no defects. :-)
Donna was very kind and accommodating. After the first day or two it really did feel "just like home". It was especially helpful that she allowed me to use her washer and dryer because then I could bring a weeks worth of clothes and then wash them to wear for the second week. I was skeptical about using AirBNB but I don't think my stay with Donna could've gone more smoothly than it did. Thanks Donna!
Donna was a great host and has a lovely (and well-located) house. I wish I could have stayed longer than one night, and will definitely return!
Great stay at Donna's lovely home! We were there for only one night so couldn't take advantage of her generous offering of beach passes, bikes, etc., but I made it a priority to exclusively use the amazing outdoor shower during the terrible July heat wave. Donna communicated promptly and was able to accommodate my bf and me for this last minute trip to the shore. Hope to be able to stay with her again when we return to Asbury.
Donna's house is beautiful and she is a warm and welcoming host.
I would absolutely recommend staying at Donna's place! Donna truly treats you as a guest in a bed and breakfast and goes out of her way to accommodate your stay. Her house was immaculately clean and neat and very well cooled. Also, she let us use her beach stuff and even gave us beach passes for one of the days. This was my first experience with airbnb and I'm happy to say it was great! (Be sure to use the outdoor shower as well! It's amazing!)
