The Space

Charming Private Studio Apt in Asbury Park. Artistic, Smoke-free. Walking distance to the ocean, center of town and Asbury Park boardwalk. Train station within 10 minute walk. Full cooking., dishwasher Sleeps two with Queen size bed. A third person is possible if willing to sleep on the sofa at additional person cost of $35.00 per night. Plenty of street parking. A/C WiFi, linen and towels. Bring your beach towel and sunblock. A hostess to help make your Jersey Shore vacation better than you might expect.

Studio is connected to my private residence. While I am generally around and available to share whatever resources I know to help make your stay enjoyable, my favorite guests have been independent yet socialized.

95% OF YOUR QUESTIONS ARE ANSWERED HERE: READ.

THE HOST: I understand that cleanliness and safety are primary to location, and of course, a decent price. As a fellow traveler, I am committed to making sure that you have a great accommodation experience by offering all of the above; but if you are just looking (email hidden) to stay, and are not willing to maintain the space, this is not the place for you.

CALENDAR & BOOKING TRENDS: The calendar is updated pretty regularly. The booking trend, so far, is that folks tend to book in advance so what you see is what's available even if it is several months down the line.

THE BASICS: Check in is between 2- 3pm unless otherwise arranged. Check out is 12 noon if guests are slated after you so that studio may be properly cleaned. The space sleeps 2. If you are a party of three, there is a sofa on which someone could sleep. You will need to pay the additional person rate of $35 per night which is automatically added if you select 3 people when booking. One nice sized, clean bathroom shower is part of the package.

THE ROOM: is a sun-drenched, cute and cozy, secured, private space.

MY ASBURY STUDIO provides fresh linens, clean towels, pillows, and warm down blankets for your comfort .

BRING YOUR OWN PERSONAL ITEMS: Food, shampoo, body wash, laundry detergent, etc.

KEY DEPOSIT: $20.00 Please change money BEFORE you reach the flat to cover the key deposit. U.S. dollars only.

ODDS & INS: You'll have access to wifi internet and up-to-date train maps & schedules. There is a washer and dryer Facility three blocks down the road.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD: This neighborhood is residential. Families everywhere. Bus line on corner. Enterprise rent-a-car within 5 minutes drive. A breakfast spot (Chat & Nibble) one block down if you absolutely do not want to make your own breakfast. The eating is very good in Asbury Park with many, many choices of both price point and selection. Train station 10 minute walk. Two night minimum.

TRANSPORTATION & GETTING AROUND: You can take a train in and out of NYC. Travel time is about 1hr 30 minutes. Alternately, you can take a bus from exit 109 (Lincroft) into Port (website hidden) time is 55 minutes into the city. I generally use this route because I save time. I drive to this rest stop and take the bus into the city.

* It's about $45 for the State Street Shuttle bus to and from Newark airport.

40 minutes by car to Princeton, one hour ten minutes to New York, Philadelphia and Atlantic City. All of the Jersey Shore towns within easy reach.

Cancellation policy: I recently had a problem with this as an Airbnb renter where the host refused entry to me yet tried to withhold my prepaid fees. I would not do this to anyone. However, I request that cancellations be made a minimum of 7 days in advance for full refund. Cancellations made within 72 hours receive 50% refund.

The place beats a hotel any time of day!

  • We loved Patricia's studio! Patricia herself (email hidden), and the cozy studio was just right for our little mid-week getaway. It was our first time visiting Asbury Park and we were delighted to find that things were pretty walkable -- we were even able to walk to the beach on a couple of days. (Most days we still drove, so that we could bring our cooler and other bulky beach supplies). We cook a lot, and the kitchen was fantastic for all our needs. High praise!!!

  • we had a great time at the studio! patricia was very accommodating by allowing us to have our friends join us for a night on short notice. fairly convenient to the train station and downtown / the beach….a little bit of a walk, but not bad at all. overall, a great experience and we would do it again!

  • My daughter and I had a WONDERFUL time at Patricia's studio. She went above and beyond - picked us up at the train station + lent us a yoga mat and a wagon + and provided perfect recommendations on a moments notice. We had such a great time, we ended up extending our stay. The space has a great feel and it was easy to feel at home. I highly recommend - we will be back!
    Also the neighborhood is a blast.

  • Easy to get to and from the train station, which is great. About a 15 minute walk to the beach which is perfect (just don't forget anything before you leave). Patricia had some great recommends for restaurants and sights to see. Totally recommend Patricia's place.

    Response from Patricia:

    Thanks Caralyn S. Sorrry I didn't get to meet you but ecstatic that the studio did not disappoint.

  • We had a great time in Patricia's studio. She wasn't there but her friend Shonda was very nice and sweet. She helped us with everything that we needed. The place is very cute and clean. The bed wasn't perfect for a couple, but it was OK. It was extremely and uncommon hot in Asbury Park and the AC wasn't enough but Shonda brought to us a big fun and everything was great. Thanks Patricia.

    Now you know I am sorry I did not have the chance to meet you, That heat blast was terrible and so sorry it happened on your watch. Thank you for your business.

  • Just like advertised, wonderful. A cool, shady place to slink back to after getting sun-blasted on the beach. Fluffy towels, friendly people to help out. Buried in neighboorhoody Asbury Park, a long walk or super-short bike or drive to beach and boardwalk, and other beaches with different personalities are just up and down the shore if Asbury's not your bag.

    Only one thing to note: the fridge is a mini fridge, so if you bring your ice cream maker, hypothetically, it's not going to fit inside the freezer cabinet.

  • This (email hidden) to stay on the shore. Patricia was lovely and the place was totally private, with everything you need. It is really easy to walk to and from the station (five minutes) and the beach (maybe 15-20) - you don't need a car. I would absolutely stay here again. Thanks Patricia!

  • I loved staying here and Patricia (email hidden). It was a cute cozy studio house and anything I needed was seen to quickly, plus I really enjoyed talking with her.

    February 2013
  • Patricia (email hidden) from start to finish. Our trip was
    rather last-minute on Labor Day weekend but Patricia promptly answered all of our questions before booking and followed up immediately after to make sure our needs would be met during our stay.

    The studio apartment exactly suited our needs. It comfortably slept
    two with room for more and was furnished with all the necessities.
    Patricia even had some recommendations of places to eat and see
    nearby. We visited several and found her recommendations were spot-on.

    The studio is a ways from the beach, so having a car is recommended.

    But there are so many wonderful places to visit you'll be glad you had
    it. Patricia was able to point us to several hidden treasures we would
    not have found on our own.

    All in all....double thumbs up!
