This private 2-bedroom carriage house is close to beach, parks and shops. It is peaceful and private in winter and accessible to Sandy Hook beach in Spring, Summer and Fall. This is truly a Cozy private cottage for all seasons. (Can sleep four adults).

The space

This carriage house was built in 1900 with quite a bit of charm. Located in the hills of Highlands, NJ it is close to the beach and the charming town of Highlands. Let the calm of an ocean view take you on a vacation getaway in any season! **(fall & winter specials apply- just ask!)

Guest access

You will have complete private access to this 2-bedroom cottage. Complete with full kitchen, wifi, and the ability to sleep 4 adults.

Interaction with guests

My home is located on the property and there will be limited access. We will be nearby if you need us, and not if you don't.

Other things to note

Unfortunately - the carriage house is not wheelchair accessible and there are stairs leading up to the property ~ I prefer no smoking or use of outdoor grills on the property.

Andrea is beautiful in everything she does. Her place is very nice and in a very good area. I even was given some veggies, coffee and tee and porridge! Excellente experience in an old school very cozy cabin with a lovely terrasse.

Andrea's place is essentially a standalone 2br apartment above a garage, in the style of a late 18th century carriage house. The Highlands is one of the highest points on the Jersey shore and the place is situated on a sloped hillside in an old neighborhood with attractive and well kept homes. It is very quiet and suburban feeling, with chirping tree frogs and the coming and going of local residents. The place is a few minutes from several seafood restaurants along Bay Avenue and a grocery store is about ten minutes west. The main attraction is the proximity to the Sandy Hook beaches, an 18th century lighthouse and the historic site nearby. There is a bike path that runs the length of the peninsula which seemed very popular. The apartment is attractively decorated beach-style, with a bookshelf library and some games, if I remember correctly. There is enough cookware and dishware for four to dine in and, as I said, a number of restaurants nearby to eat out. The bedrooms are air conditioned and there are ceiling fans in all the rooms (except bathroom). It can sleep four comfortably, with a living room futon for the fourth person. It was neat and tidy, in a great neighborhood. This was my first visit to this part of New Jersey, which has regular ferry service across Raritan Bay from the city. The owner lives in the main house and is available to answer any questions you may have.

Andrea's house is well located in on a quiet street in Highlands, just a few minutes' drive from the beach. The property is close to the town's bars and restaurants, and Andrea gave us tips on places to try while we were there. Check in and communication were great.
