My friends and I had THE BEST stay at Lorraine's home. So many nice things to say... First off, the home is beautiful with a fantastic kitchen (two sinks! and a wine fridge), living room (bose speakers & great TV), 3 spacious bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It comfortably slept all 6 of us. Plus, it had a great outdoor area with a fire pit. The house in a great location (2 minutes from the center of town and the train station and only 15 min walk from the beach). Lorraine also provides 2 beach guest passes and bikes. However, what really made our stay so fantastic was Lorraine! She baked us cookies and muffins (they were absolutely delicious) and she checked in on us to make sure we were enjoying ourselves and had everything we needed. It was the perfect place for our college reunion. I would come back in a heartbeat.

What a find! Lorraine is such a gracious host. She provided us with a clean house, fresh baked cookies, and anything else we could possibly need to enjoy a relaxing weekend by the shore. This is a very comfortable house for 5-6 people. We found it to be just as she described it. Three bedrooms upstairs each with a closet, dresser, ceiling fan, and queen bed (very comfortable mattresses and pillows). Plenty of towels, including beach towels. A bathroom upstairs with a shower and a bathroom downstairs with a tub/shower and then even an outdoor shower just by the back deck. The kitchen is clean and beautiful! Fully stocked with pots, pans, Tupperware, towels and coffee! She had lots of coffee options for the keurig. The back patio is quiet and relaxing. There is a table for 6 out there as well as a fire pit to enjoy and evening outside. The house is on a quiet street, but there are bagel shop and pizza shop within 5-10 minutes walking. We had a great few days and hope to come back next summer. You won't regret staying here.

Lorrain's place was everything we hoped and more. The home was immaculate And she had chocolate chip homemade bars waiting for us when we arrived along with fresh flowers which was such a nice special greeting. Lorraine took care of our every need. She came over during a terrible storm to give us a basket of candles and flashlights, luckily we only lost power for a few minutes, but her hospitality was so great and we appreciated all the little things she did for us. I will be going back over and over against, Thank you Lorraine! Xoxo

Response from Lorraine:
Kelly and her family were delightful. I enjoyed everything about this family: their conversation, their respect for the property and its belongings, their questions and comments about the area, the fact that they left me about 5 lbs of freshly caught fluke (absolutely delicious and all gone by the way) and, of course, they way they left the home...i.e. in PERFECT condition. I truly hope they come back to stay next year.

Lorraine is a sincere, kind , wonderful host. Her home was immaculate and beautifully kept. She helped us with any questions we had and was just an angel. We miss her glowing personality already. She never made us have to ask twice if we needed something from her and was so attentive to us. Thank You so much Lorraine !

Response from Lorraine:
This family was exceptionally kind and generous and SUCH FUN!!! I found myself giggling at all their family conversations and truly enjoyed making each of their acquaintances. They enjoyed all Manasquan and the Point had to offer and were entirely respectful of all house rules and requirements. I really want them to come back and look forward to that visit.

Lorraine's place was absolutely fantastic! We just wish we had more time to spend there. The home was spotless and truly beautiful. A short walk to the heart of a wonderful downtown and the train station. You couldn't ask for a better location. We will be back! Lorraine was a wonderful host. There were freshly baked cookies (still warm) waiting for us when we arrived. She was easy to communicate with and pleasure to speak to.

A way-too-short visit from this very pleasant and charming family. They were quiet, respectful and delightful. They left the house in impeccable condition! I hope they all come back soon and any host would be lucky to have the Presley family stay with them.

Lorraine was courteous, communicative and welcoming from the start of the trip onward. She went far above and beyond the call of duty to make sure we had everything we could ever need and more. My friends and I absolutely love her charmingly decorated home (which is perfectly situated close to the train station and a short walk from the beach/bay). We had everything we could need in terms of dishes, grilling supplies, extra bags to carry things in and restroom essentials. Lorraine even built us a bonfire, made us popcorn and made sure we could have everything we ever needed and more. We cannot wait to go back to see her and her cute dog Bella again!

This house is perfect for a beach weekend getaway. The house goes above and beyond with the amenities. There is a coffee machine, a keurig, and a electric tea kettle to suit any sort of tastes. In addition, Lorraine also provides a wide variety of Keurig pods so you don't have to bring your own. The kitchen was perfectly stocked with appliances to the point that it felt we were at home. The bed were comfortable and the air conditioning was perfect. I would highly recommend a family of 5 or 6 to stay here.
