We had a great time in Long Branch at this property conveniently located within walking distance to our favorite beach, and our favorite Italian ice, Strollo's. Perfect for three of us: two adults and one teenager, plus one small dog. We were pleased to be able to bring the dog to the shore. Property was clean and comfortable, and our host was responsive and helpful from the beginning of the process. He had the beds made up as we needed them (including the pullout all made up and ready to go), beach passes laid out on the desk, and kitchen stocked with a tray of snacks to the delight of the hungry teenage boy. While it's not a full kitchen, it's well-stocked with mini-fridge, microwave, toaster, hot plate, coffee maker, cookware and dishes. Street parking was easy even during beach days. It is near a main road, so you do hear some traffic, but it didn't bother us, and made it easy in and out for visiting nearby towns. After reading reviews, must comment that we didn't find the stairs terribly steep. Thank you to our host for a really enjoyable weekend!
