Megan's place is very cozy and comfortable. Perfect proximity to the beach and fantastic restaurants. The apartment is very clean Megan was a great host. We've stayed at several hotel close to here, but would rather come back here in the future. Private and scenic.

The stay at Megan's place was great. It is like a private large studio at the first floor of her house, with a separate entrance. Enjoying the front porch for the 6am sunrise was amazing as many others mentioned. Megan was great. Her suggestions for local eateries for dinner and breakfast were spot on. The beaches are really close. Megan even rescued us after being stranded after a long run at the tip of Sandy hook. Will be back

Everything about the unit is great. The location, the view and the unit itself; comfortable, very clean and stocked with the little necessities that you may have forgotten to bring. Megan was there to greet us and introduce us to the space and the local restaurants. Made the weekend a treat.

Megan was a great host and we loved our stay in her apartment, especially being so close to the beach.

Meg's home is a beautiful, peaceful getaway that also happens to be within just minutes walking distance of great little restaurants (and ice cream!) in Highlands, the historic Twin Lighthouses and a short drive to the beaches at Sandy Hook and Sea Bright. As another guest also recommended, don't miss the gorgeous sunrise over the ocean from the rocking chairs on the front porch! The apartment is beach chic, quiet, and Meg provided thoughtful extras like coffee, water, and travel toiletries plus beach umbrellas and towels which saved us from having to lug them from home! Best of all, Meg is an attentive host always checking in to ensure you're comfortable and providing great local suggestions for restaurants and shops. This was our first family trip with our 3 month old and staying at 7 Ocean St made it wonderful. We'll be back!

If I could have zero stars I would. By far the WORST experience I have ever had. I don't even know where to start. Spent $736 for 2 nights she didn't even show up or called. Me and my husband called her and texted her like 10 times. We stayed for 2 hours outside the apartment and wait for her to show up or call. Not an answer nothing. She turned off her phone she won't answer our phone calls and we lost $736 dollars. We have prouve that we were there wiring for hours. We have prouve that she never answered. She contacted us at like 7pm and said that she would give us a refund which she never did. I AM SO VERY DISAPPOINTED I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND BOOKONG THROUGH HER EVER! I BELIEVE THIS IS A SCAM SO DON'T BOOK ANYTNING UNTILE YOU ARE SURE 100% . THIS WAS THE WORST EXPERIENCE I HAD WITH AIRBNB AND MEGAN WAS THE WORST HOST WE HAD. I will never nook anything through her or anybody. I'm still waiting for my refund she turned her phone off and won't answer my texts. Don't book nothing with her!!!!!

Response from Megan:
Karima and her husband never showed up. She had instructions for the key and the unit was ready to go. I was home the entire day. I've had 100% 5 star experiences with every Airbnb guest I've ever hosted. Despite this I did actually give her a refund. I've contacted Airbnb to remove her from the community.

We have been visiting Highlands for the past 20+ years, and this is by far the nicest place we have stayed. Megan's space is a few minutes from Sandy Hook and the restaurants and shops in Highlands. Her decks have great ocean views and are a wonderful place to sip drinks and watch the water at the end of the day. Megan texted to make sure the stay was going well and made a special trip to town for us when the grill ran out of gas one evening. We recommend this location to anyone visiting the area and hope that we can stay here again next year when we return.
