Newly renovated and furnished house one mile from the beach and boardwalk in the historic beach town of Asbury Park. This house is perfect for families/friends; close to family friendly activities, great dining, iconic music venues, and nightlife. We have 3 bikes available for use (one with a toddler seat), a lovely fenced in backyard perfect for relaxing, BBQ grill on the back deck and a family room with large screen TV perfect for movie night. A comfortable home for a Jersey Shore escape.
This is a split level home built in the 50s and has a Brady Bunch charm to it. We mostly decorated it mid-century modern, but made the downstairs family room nice and comfy cozy with a soft sectional couch and big screen TV. The living room is perfect for family relaxing, reading, listening to records or fixing a cocktail. The upstairs bedrooms are spacious, two with queen beds, and one "kids" room with a single, room for a pack 'n play crib or the extra mattress in the closet (non-kids are welcome in this room too!). The kitchen is newly remodeled, the back deck right off the kitchen is perfect for grilling- there is large BBQ grill for your use- and outdoor dining, and the backyard is enclosed with a fence and yours to relax and hang out in. There is a blow-up kiddie pool in the shed which you are welcome to use if it's hot.
You have access to the entire house and backyard except for the downstairs basement- you are welcome to use the laundry machines here but we are storing/organizing a lot of stuff in the rest of this area.
I can be reached by cell (call or text): (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) Erica. My husband is Ezra, (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). We live in Brooklyn, NY so we have some local friends helping manage the place, Kelle who is local: +(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) and then you may meet Isai as well if you need something (and he sometimes deals with our garbage and is our handiman/ contractor when things need fixing.)
The lawn is mowed every other week, so the landscapers may show up while you're here.
Garbage is picked up Saturday and Wednesday and recycling is picked up on Thursdays. We may have someone come to take out the garbage on Tuesday night and bring cans back on Wednesday night and same for Friday night/ Saturday AM. So make sure your garbage and recycling is out in the garbage shed in backyard next to the house. And note, someone may be back there that works for us to remove the trash/ recycling while you're here.
