We had a lovely Christmas at the Navesink Surf House. We were in town for the holidays, in need of a place to gather our family for Christmas Eve, and it served this purpose well. The house is charming, bright, extremely clean, basically equipped, located in a picturesque wooded area and a quick drive from shops and restaurants. We were surprised at first that the TV was not connected to cable service, but it was set up with a variety of connectors/adaptors to be easily connected to a laptop or other device; the wifi service was adequate, and we found that we didn't miss cable at all. Allbriton responded immediately and efficiently to all our questions--a friendly and accommodating host. Overall, a good experience.
Wonderful, funky house. Bright. Many wooded trails and pleasant walks any time of year. Close to restaurants and all water activities.
Warning, stairs to second floor are steep.
Navesink is such a beautiful area and our stay at the surf house was very charming and accommodating. The house was supplied with what we needed for comfort and convenience. Thanks again. This is a house I would stay in again when in the area.
Beautiful home and absolutely wonderful host! We had no trouble with the directions and instructions, and the guide to the area was so helpful. Had a splendid time and hope we have a chance to go back!
Very comfortable, without being fussy. Allbriton was very good about communicating to us before, and he gave us great instructions and a local contact, in case of emergency.
Full kitchen, comfortable beds, little backyard with a fire pit, grill on the back deck. Although it's right next to a road, it was very quiet and peaceful inside. And the price made it very affordable for - in our case - two couples.
When I arrived, I said to my wife, "If we ever try to get a little house in the country, this is the kind of house we should get."
The house is in the middle of the woods and only a few minutes walk from the park, with a number of trails to choose from. House was well equipped and clean. Grocery store is nearby. Seastreak ferry to Manhattan only a 10 min drive away. We had a great stay!

The surf house was great and clean. We loved the location. We’ve never met Allbriton personally but all his explanation was very accurate. I do recommend this apartment.
The Navasink Surf House was great. We unfortunately hit New Jersey during a spat of nearly 6 consecutive days of raining. Having an 11 month old with us meant most of our plans washed out. Luckily the house was a great place to call an outpost. Everything was super clean and exactly how it looks on the listing. Allbrition checked in on us periodically and provided some excellent recommendations for restaurants and coffee nearby. The neighbors were nice and the strawberry patch in the back had a few delicious ripe berries - yum. There's a forest preserve that almost surrounds the back side of the neighborhood and within quick walking distance. You can also grab the Seastreak Ferry for a quick trip to the city, although we didn't due to the rain. There's a grocery store down the street and one of the top pizza places in NJ about 5 minutes away - 1st Avenue Pizza, get the Grandma.
All in all, the place is great. Allbriton is great and a fantastic host. We'd definitely stay again.

Allbriton was a great guest. I would love to host him again!
Allbriton was great to deal with, very communicative and respectful of our property, leaving it in great condition
What a pleasure to host Allbriton in our guest cottage near Yosemite. He left the cottage very clean, was so easy to communicate with and was a joy to have on the property!
Very nice and friendly, was a pleasure to share a wine with Allbriton and his friends. They left the house in perfect condition.
We enjoyed hosting Allbriton and his friend. We hardly knew they were here, very clean and professional.
Nice guest everything was fine.

I really enjoyed Allbriton's place. He was a courteous host and the place was really clean, nicely put together and in a great location in Little Italy. It's really close to Soho and a lot of other great NYC locations. I would definitely recommend it.
