You can smell the ocean from this light-filled studio with hardwood floors, granite counter tops, dishwasher within a short distance (ten blocks ) of the ocean. While Asbury is the suburbs of New York City, it is a bustling, vibrant town during the summer season. Enjoy the quietude of the property's back deck and yard after a long day at the beach.
Charming Private Studio Apt in Asbury Park. Artistic, Smoke-free. If you are fit, you can walk to the ocean ( 10 blocks), the center of town ( 10 minutes) and Asbury Park boardwalk. But you might not want to do that after a long day of lying on the beach. So although you can walk, bring a car, your bike or skateboard. Train station is also within a 10 minute walk. Full cooking facilities and a dishwasher. Easily sleeps three with 2 Day beds and a Queen sofa bed which could bring total number to 4 if a family or close friends. But this is not a crash pad. Plenty of street parking. A/C , WiFi, linen and towels. Television (but no cable) included so bring your Chromecast or firestick to enjoy television. Also bring your beach towel and sunblock. .The neighborhood is hustling & bustling. People are alive and living their lives although this will not disturb your quietude. There is a back yard deck that I invite you to share, as the studio is connected to my private residence and my garden is out back. 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. If you have questions about the neighborhood, please feel free to ask to avoid any miscommunications in the reviews after the fact. If you are a party of more than three, there will be an 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.

I grew up in Seattle, Washingon, have lived on the east coast for the past 30 years and love the Jersey Shore in the Summer. I have traveled most of my adult life beginning in my early 20's such that it is almost as natural as gardening has come to be for me.
In addition to traveling, I enjoy learning new things, creative people, writing, my grandsons, culture, and fitness.
