- Removed all non-essential items in the house such as books, any decorative items/pillows, board games, etc.

Two sets of dishes, cookware, flatware, glasses, brooms etc that will be switched out and completely sanitized after each rental (will also supply plenty of paper goods)

All steps (and beyond) are being taken to make sure the house is clean and sanitized.
ALSO...Even though we don't currently run it as a B&B (it was a running B&B when it was originally purchased), we decided to maintain my B&B and mercantile license. With that said, we must adhere to all fire/safety codes and the house meets (and exceeds) all of the required standards. This is important when considering a rental since many owners renting their properties are not required by law to meet these standards. All of these certificates are posted in the house.
There is an additional $150 LIGHT CLEANING FEE THAT IS ADDED TO EVERY WEEK.
There is an $800 refundable security fee added to each booking.

Fantastic location, property fit all of our needs

My family--me, my husband and 2 daughters ages 16 and 18--just needed a place to get away during this crazy summer. We stayed two weeks and could not have been happier. The property is adorable: an old B&B with 5 rooms--each with their own bathroom; a front sitting room and a kitchen with a table big enough for 8. But it is the porches that make the place amazing. Located on the first block off the beach, we could see the ocean from the porches. The location was perfect. Easy walk to downtown Ocean Grove, just 10 minutes to Asbury Park's happening restaurant area--Cookman Ave and 1/2 block to the beach. The house is decorated beachy comfortable and the owner, Annie, took great pains to ensure it's super COVID clean. Annie was terrific to work with, made us feel really comfortable and remembered that we were celebrating a birthday while there. A welcome basket with birthday candles greeted us when we got there. So thoughtful. We wish we could have stayed longer. We will definatley be back.

Perfect location in Ocean Grove--close to Asbury Park and Main Street, but most importantly half a block from the beach. The house is very large, plenty of rooms--many with their own bathrooms in the traditional OG Victorian style. House was clean and well prepared for COVID. Owner was highly communicative, friendly, helpful.

This was the Best Vacation thus far with my family. It was like we took our home in Virginia to New Jersey but with more room. This house was Fabulous, it had everything we needed down to a playpen for my granddaughter that we forgot to put in the van. Thank you so much Annie for making our 1st annual Brooks vacation special.
Everyone that walked past the house spoke and was so friendly! We loved it, we will definitely be back next year!

We had a great time the beach house. Our group rented the house for the Memorial Day weekend. The house is so comfortable and homey that it felt like home from the moment we arrived. Although the house is a little old, it is very clean, and well appointed. We liked that it has plenty of bathrooms, two areas of congregation, three porches, in general plenty of room for 15 people. The location is unbeatable, one block from the beach, close to the restaurants in both Ocean Grove and Asbury Park, within perfect distance to watch the fireworks in Asbury Park and the Memorial Day parade passes on the street in front of the house.
Annie, the owner was very nice to deal with. She answered all our questions, was very responsive and gave us some great suggestions for restaurants and things to do in the area. We hope to return again next year.
