THE BEACH LODGE BOOSTS 100% 5 STAR REVIEWS. See below for what our valued guests had to say.
5 STARS from Sherri - March 2022 - Airbnb Guest: My girlfriends and I had such a relaxing get away at the beach lodge. The house is so clean and beautifully decorated we absolutely LOVED it!!! We thought Cherisse’s welcome guide with very specific recommendations of places to go and eat was really helpful. The location is perfect, it’s like a beachy neighborhood of NYC --- we walked everywhere which was fantastic with my dog! Highlands is such a cute town, it’s close to everything, we are all from NJ and never really knew of it, but we are already talking about our next trip back, and we will definitely be staying at Cherisse’s again!
5 STARS from Francine - April 2022 Airbnb Guest: Cherisse's home is absolutely stunning. Her home is exactly as pictured, and communication with her so was quick and easy. I would absolutely recommend this stay to anyone going to the area!!!
5 STARS from Karen - April 2022 - Airbnb Guest: Great house, lots of room in living/dining rooms and lots for kids to do (games, streaming services, etc). Easy walk to the water and parks and close to bridge to Sandy Hook. Also lots of restaurants, coffee, etc. within a few blocks.
5 STARS from Allison - April 2022 - Airbnb Guest: This property is top notch in comfort and cleanliness. Beds were very comfortable and both bathrooms are roomy, clean and convenient. The location can’t be beat-walking distance to nearly everything in Highlands and a short drive to check out other areas like Sandy Hook, Long Branch and Sea Bright. The outdoor equipment available for use was also top notch. We had one guest with us with mobility challenges, and this property was nearly perfect. The host was very accommodating to any questions or requests before and during our stay. We would definitely stay at this property again.
5 Stars from Candace - May 2022 Airbnb Guest: We loved our time at the shore house! It was fun and beautifully decorated with every bit of comfort someone could ask for. Definitely would recommend Cherisse’s home to anyone!
5 Stars from Haojun: May 2022 Airbnb Guest: Absolutely 5 stars, just put it in a simple way, I want my home like this, cozy, relaxing, has everything needed, great location to beach, can't ask anything more since everything is there.
5 Stars from Jill - May 2022 VRBO Guest: This was the perfect property for our family! The house was beautiful, very clean, and had all the amenities we needed! The neighborhood was quiet and there were restaurants and the beach within walking distance! Cherisse was very responsive and helpful with any questions we had! We’ll definitely be back and I’d highly recommend this rental!
5 Stars from Marcie - May 2022 VRBO Guest: Perfect for our annual Girl's weekend....The home was immaculate. The style and decor was perfect down to the tiniest detail. Lots of wide open places to gather and catch up with friends both inside and outside. The dining room table was suitable for our big family style meals, and kitchen provided us with everything we needed to prepare them. It was absolutely perfect and in close proximity to restaurants and bars. Cherisse guided us to the best places to visit despite our less than stellar weather. I don't usually visit the same place twice, but this time I may have to book again. The home, the trip, and the hostess were all 5 stars.
5 Stars from Brittany - June 2022 VRBO Guest: This house is so lovely! Very close to everything, and the owner Cherisse is amazing, she even coordinated and did a beer tasting for us one evening! Everything about our stay was perfect. Will definitely be back!
5 Stars from Rick - June 2022 VRBO Guest: Definitely a 5 star property, location and host, also a 5 paw rating from our pup. Everything you could want in a vacation rental to unwind from the daily grind. Need beach chairs and accessories, bikes, private patio even a record player? Look no further, it's all included at the beach house. We definitely recommend a stay at this rental and will certainly be returning.
5 Stars from Zoe - June 2022 Airbnb Guest: This place was everything we could have wanted and more! Cherisse is a wonderful host, her home is clean and stylish and the location is awesome for going to the beach and enjoying the city. The seastreak ferry into Manhattan was so easy. Couldn’t have asked for a better weekend away, we highly recommend!
5 Stars from Bettyanne -July 2022 VRBO Guest: Cherisse was a spectacular host and so responsive! The process was seamless and the open floor plan was super clean and relaxing for family time. Adorable home with awesome decor and furnishings! Close to beautiful Sea Bright beach as well as the ferry to/from NYC which our son enjoyed! Great memories with the fam were made!
5 Stars from John - July 2022 Airbnb Guest: Could imagine staying at a better air bnd! This home was a wonderful stay with its proximity to the beaches and access to New York City. Great decor, very clean, and organized. The hosts were extremely accommodating and kind. Highly recommend it. Can’t wait to come back, until next time.
5 Stars from Jessica - July 2022 Airbnb Guest: All our guests loved the style of your home and that you clearly thought about your guests, from the holders for the remotes to the easy locks on the doors. Everything was clean and fresh. We loved the game selection and the home had everything we needed. We appreciated the beach chairs and the bags game in the garage as well!
5 Stars from Carrie - July 2022 Booked Direct Guest: If you are looking for a beautiful house, host and area look no further Cherisse @bayshorebeachlodgenj has you covered. The best part of vacation is spending it with people you love in a beautiful space that's comfortable, relaxing and stress free. This house absolutely has that vibe!!! Well equipped with anything you could possibly need. Lots of great restaurants in walking distance and beaches are a short walk or quick drive. We absolutely loved the food in the Highlands and Cherisse was always available for any questions I had. Her welcome guide and suggestions to all the things made our stay even more enjoyable.
5 Stars from Felicia - September 2022 Airbnb Guest: We had a wonderful stay at Cherisse's beach house. My family enjoyed the spacious and well-designed house, the plentiful outdoor seating in the back, and we walked around town to dinner, ice cream, and more. Cherisse was incredibly responsive and helpful throughout the process. The little touches in the house made the experience incredibly memorable and enjoyable.
5 Stars from Susan - September 2022 Airbnb Guest: This was an outstanding rental. Great communication with Cherisse. Everything was clean and ready to go. We took some of the suggestions left for dinner and beach time which were excellent. Plenty of parking and roomy for gatherings. We loved it. Loved our host too.
5 Stars from Kelly - October 2022 Airbnb Guest: We used this house to honor my dad and celebrate his 85th birthday with about 14 family members for dinner and games over a fall weekend. The great room is comfortable and has a great set-up for hosting and the dining room table can easily hold all the food you want to serve. The art is fun and eclectic and the space is homey. Great location, that still delivers, even in the "off" season (though fall is always so pretty on the Shore, it's hard to call it the off season) Cherisse was very responsive to any questions and flexible when we had certain specific requests. A great experience.
5 Stars from Debra - October 2022 Airbnb Guest: The house was exactly as advertised. It had everything we needed and was extremely clean. The location was perfect for a family visit. There's a lot to do in the Highlands area - beach, hiking, shopping, restaurants/bars. Charisse provides a great experience with all the little details especially her suggestions on places to go and things to do if you are not familiar with the area. We will definitely be back.
5 Stars from Seth -November 2022 VRBO Guest: Lovely Home, Exceeded Expectations Lovely home in an amazing location. The house exceeded expectations. Cherisse, the host, was extremely helpful and ensured we had everything we needed. 11/10 will definitely stay here again!

5 Stars from Kerry -March 2023 Airbnb Guest: We absolutely loved Cherisse's home, from the decor to the comfortable beds and beautiful living spaces. The location to many highlights of the Shore was perfect. Our group felt right at home. The finishes and details like bath products, useful house guide, and smart TVs made our stay feel luxurious. Cherisse was responsive, thoughtful and a pleasure to communicate with. We hope to be back many times.
5 Stars from Leigh Ann, March 2023 VRBO Guest: Wonderful property and great communication with host. We were looking for a place to meet up with family who live in NYC, yet be away from NYC. It fit the bill perfectly. Would like to visit again in a warmer month to take advantage of the proximity to the beach.
5 Star Review from Ceceila, April 2023 Airbnb Guest: My friends and our kids had a lovey time staying at Cherisse and Scott’s home. It’s well laid out so everyone could enjoy together and alone time. Cherisse was extremely communicative and responsive before and during our stay. There are great beaches and walks along the water to be had. Definitely recommend!
5 Star Review from Chris, May 2023 VRBO Guest: This house was perfect for our group of friends to stay while we enjoyed some Raritan Bay fishing. The driveway was long enough to park boat trailer and truck as well as another vehicle. The house has everything and is really cool. The town is great and the Proving Grounds is a nice place to grab dinner and drinks with live music.
5 Star Review from Samantha, May 2023 VRBO Guest: Just what my partner and I were looking for in a relaxing beach getaway. Can’t speak highly enough of the hosts. The welcome guide was so helpful and their recommendations were perfect. They basically planned our trip and it couldn’t have been better. Loved the local charcuterie board setup at our arrival-highly recommend!
5 Star Review from Cassie, June 2023 Airbnb Guest: Cherisse and Scott have a wonderful beach house and are some of the best Airbnb hosts! Their house is gorgeous (super well decorated) and spotless! The towels were very plush and there’s great water pressure. We loved the record player, and it was great having bikes available. There’s a bunch of restaurants within walking distance. We went to Sandy hook so it was great having the beach pass. There were instructions for everything and Cherisse was helpful and responsive every time I reached out. Would definitely come back!
5 Star Review from Katherine, July 2023 VRBO Guests: Wonderful stay with family! Beautiful place, Walkable shops for coffee/breakfast, walk to the beach, quick drive to Sandy Hook, great recommendations from Hosts!! So fun, hope to stay again!!
5 Star Review from Brandy, August 2023 VRBO Guest: We had a fantastic stay in the Highlands. Every bit of the home description (And More) is accurate. We have family in the area and love visiting the NJ shore. Cherisse was so easy to communicate with and even accommodated an unexpected early arrival. (Thank you again 🙏) The property is clean, quiet, comfortable and easy access to everything. Early morning walk to bakery, casual lunch down on the water and family beach time galore. We can’t wait to come back!! Thank you for a wonderful stay and so many great memories.
5 Star Review from Hasham, September VRBO Guest: Great stay by a great host! Very responsive and helpful. Place was amazing and location was the best. Thank you
