Recently on YELP about Asbury Park and its beaches:
“One of the best beaches in NJ. Asbury brings it's own personality; diverse, eclectic, artistic and fun to the NJ beach scene. No Jersey Shore cheese here - clean beaches, great restaurants and nightlife abound...”
“One of the best decisions I ever made. It’s got the beach, boardwalk, fresh salty air and small town friendliness along with active nightlife and restaurant scene you need to revive yourself on the weekends, all within an accessible 90 min train/car ride from Jersey City/NYC. This place is not for everyone; contingent on liking Asbury Park is embracing its diverse and funky vibe. Black, white, latino, gay, straight, preppy, rock and roll, singles and families all somehow have their place here, and it just works. If you "get it", you will be hooked. And yes, the beach itself is beautiful.”

I would like the world to know how wonderful our stay was this past September, 2012, at Figtree in asbury Park, NJ.
The house is perfect and the location could not be better. Anyone that is interested in a vacation stay in a luxurious home located across the street from the boardwalk and the beach must stay at Figtree. "'You will only need your toothbrush and personal items" is a true statement. The house includes all you will need, including, the finest appliances and cookware and all of the essentials needed in a kitchen.
The bathrooms are great. The master bath is out of this world. The steam shower and powerful jets could not be more relaxing.
I was so impressed with the quality of materials used to build the house. The best. The wet bar is brilliant. Wine cooler, refrigerator and freezer. Top of the line appliances.
Your 'home" looked lovely from the photos, but, I still packed up my sheets, pillows and towels as I often do when traveling. What a waste of time and effort.
The house is fully stocked with fine quality bedding.
And, try to find a home at the Jersey shore that is on one floor. I love Victorians, but, with an aunt and dog that can't walk up the stairs, it's a dream come true. All the bedrooms are separated, so, privacy is not an issue. The flow of the house is just great. And, the furnishings and personal touches are wonderful. This is not a "rental property". It's truly a warm and inviting home. Great living room and grand dining area.
The porch! Fabulous. Spacious and has fans. In the evenings, we were able to watch the activities on the board walk and saw the water in the distance. We were over the top when the fireworks for labor day weekend were exploding over the beach, directly in front of the house. We were able to sit on the porch, have cocktails and watch the show. I can't imagine a better view!
Thank you for creating such an ideal space for our vacation.
LINDA! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your detailed and highly complimentary thoughts in this glowing 5 star review!
We are so pleased that our hard work and attention to detail allows guests like yourself to relax and "breathe easier"! What a vacation needs to be!
We love the "sprawling ranch" feeling of the downstairs unit too and glad it met your needs!
We look forward to future visits from guests like you at The Fig Tree House!
Love from Asbury Park!

Stayed here with my husband and a group of friends for Labor Day weekend and had such a great time. Vivian and Pat were amazing hosts and went above and beyond what I expected to make our stay perfect. The house is so spacious and clean. We loved cooking in the awesome kitchen while listening to music on the surround sound and eating meals out on the deck. The house comes with a great board game collection too.
You can see the ocean from so many rooms in the house, and the short walk to the beach made it even better. Highlights of the town: The best vintage arcade ever (cheap, open late and Byob), beach-side bars, friendly, not too crowded even for a holiday weekend, farmers markets, and 6-person bike rental to get around town!
