Perfect place to relax
If you can't relax here, you probably need therapy. This is the most welcoming vacation home we have ever stayed in. The rooms are cozy and comfortable. A beautiful essentially private beach seems to go on forever. Great seafood restaurants in Point Pleasant at the harbour and Joe Leone's market is a MUST. Patty Finch is a 5 * hostess. Comfortable and easy to talk to.”
Such a lovely home!
This beautiful property isn't just a place to stay, it's a home. Patty is warm and hospitable and explained that it's been in her family for 3 generations! It's right on the beach - which makes it super convenient and you really don't ever need to leave. The beach is basically a private beach - despite the fact that it was labor day weekend, there weren't a lot of people there. The rooms are cosy and and the bathrooms are shared but that didn't take away from the fact that this is a really lovely home on the beach. ”
Home away from home on the beach
We had a wonderful stay at Patty's beach house. The views of the beach were breathtaking, the sound of the ocean in our bedrooms was lovely. Perhaps most importantly, Patty attended to every last detail, including leaving out special toys for our young sons. No one wanted to leave. The rooms were immaculate. The home felt spacious yet comfortable. We felt as though we were visiting family with impeccable taste and attention to detail. Next time we'll pack even less since Patty literally had everything we needed and encouraged us to make ourselves right at home, which we did! The village which is a short 7-8 minute drive has an array of unique boutiques and restaurants. Mini golf and an aquarium as well as other activities in the off chance you tire of the very private beach!”
Love my Dune Fine!
We finally made it back to this wonderful oceanfront home and will be happy repeat guests. This trip we were treated with watching very angry seas from the bedroom windows and enjoying the expansive oceanfront views. As always, Patty was a wonderful hostess and now a wonderful friend. Mantoloking is a wonderful neighborhood at the Shore that's for sure. ”
Wonderful ocean front cabin!
Spent a wonderful, relaxing few days this adorable ocean front home. The owner, Patty, was fantastic throughout the process and greeted us personally and showed us all the ins and outs of the house, as well as tips on the area. Can't beat ocean front, long walks on the beach, and most of all sleeping to the sound of the waves! Can't wait for the week we already booked next September! ”
