Get comfortable and unwind. 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)

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.
Communication with Donna was rapid and friendly.
Beautiful, comfortable house.
Made to feel right at home.
Just like home Is just like home! A lovely house and Donna is very welcoming ! Looking forward to returning!
Great place and location. Donna was accommodating and hospitable. I would recommend.
In the heart of Asbury Park, Donna's home was a great place to stay. It offers a warm, friendly environment, comfortable and accommodating. I recommend her home to anyone interested in visiting the area.
Donna has been easy to get in touch with, so I didn't have to worry about anything before I got her place or during my stay there. She has been wonderful host and made my stay much happier one. Since I was traveling on my own, it was very nice to talk to her once in a while. The house is very pretty, clean, and comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet and nice too. Unless you go out alone in the middle of the night, you'll have no problem at all, I think. For me, everything including Asbury Park train station, downtown, and boardwalk were walking distance. I'd love to come back to stay here again. Thank you very much, Donna :)
Donna was a great host. She keeps an impeccably clean house. The bed was quite comfortable. I enjoyed being able to use the BBQ a couple evenings to grill dinner. Enjoyed the visiting. She had basics for breakfast available each morning which was all I wanted. Thanks Donna. For sure, the next time I'm in N.Jersey, I'm going to try booking with you.
Donna's house is beautiful and in a nice leafy suburban neighborhood. Donna herself is warm, generous and welcoming. I can't recommend her BNB highly enough!
I decided late one afternoon to drive an hour to the shore to get some surfing in, and wanted to go out the next morning as well. Contacted Donna around 5pm and heard back by 6:30. She was nice enough to accommodate my later arrival, recommended (excellent) Chinese delivery, and even let me park my truck off-street in the driveway to keep my board secure.
Her smallest (twin) room was PERFECT for my quick night out of town. I will stay here again. Her Craftsman-style home is gorgeously maintained, well-appointed, and comfortable.
Dona's place was very comfy! She had a lovely front porch that I enjoyed. It is also pretty close to the beach.
Everything was as stated.. I had never been to Asbury Park before, so that was new to me. Wasn't quite what I expected, but Donna's place was perfect for my one night stay. She was very helpful, and very easy to be with. Very close to everything I needed, and she gave me some good info about how to get around. I did enjoy Asbury Park for the short time I was there. I found the people extremely friendly and helpful, and everyone said they loved it there and it was a special place! Perhaps one of the coolest things of the entire experience at Donna's place, was the outdoor shower in the morning! Nothing like that since I was in Hawaii. It's so much fun to shower outside in the morning, or anytime of day. I would stay there again just for that! :) Really though, Donna was a sweet host and was very sweet and helpful.
