Perfect home for a family weekend getaway to the Jersey Shore!

  • 5 of 5

Dar and John's home was perfect for our family trip to the Jersey Shore. The property is close to town and the beach, yet still in a quiet and clean neighborhood. Our toddler and dog loved the backyard. I highly recommend their home for anyone visiting the Point Pleasant Beach area.

Perfect spot, house and owners!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED this vacation get-away! The owners were amazing and went above our expectations. The house is exactly as described, except you cannot feel the charm unless you are standing in the home. We arrived on Thanksgiving to a beautiful bottle of wine AND a turkey in the fridge. The owner went out of her way to make us feel at home by putting out the carving set, platter and gravy boat for our Thanksgiving. The most endearing touch was she knew we were bringing along our little dog, Fitz, and she had "turkey day feast" dog food for him! I can't imagine any home we've chosen in past stays to make us feel so welcome and also attending to our needs. I consider reviews to be very important when choosing a home and I can't say enough good things about it.

It was our first time in the area and we found it to be easily drivable to beaches, restaurants, state parks and even getting a train to the city. My family would rent this home again in a heartbeat. We are thinking of coming back for the summer so we can enjoy the outdoor area and bikes! Thank you for sharing your great home!!

Cozy, quaint and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

The Point Pleasant Hideaway is all three of these things! First the house is what you would expect in a quiet urban neighborhood. It has a nautical theme and all the amenities you need for a relaxing stay. Second the neighborhood is very inviting with many lovely homes and quiet streets. Third, it is close to many restaurants and attractions as well as a short drive or bicycle ride to the beach. The owners are wonderful to deal with and have taken time to make sure your stay is enjoyable. Four tv's, an outdoor fire pit, beach bikes and lots of games will keep you busy. We highly recommend the "Hideaway" and hope to get back there again soon.

Home away from home

September 2017 was our second vacation at this property, so it really felt like coming home. Thanks to Darlene and John for a great place. We could have stayed much longer.

  • 5 of 5

we love this place- third (or fourth?) year returning to Dar and John's house. recent kitchen upgrade is terrific, quiet neighborhood especially appreciated after a busy day at the shore. Ten minute walk to downtown shops. As Arnold says- "we'll be back"
