I've stayed several times in Mikell's Big House--it is the perfect Asbury experience! Located just a few blocks from the beach (and also an easy walk to the great restaurants downtown), this is a gorgeously renovated b&b with a very contemporary style. My room was tastefully decorated--and unlike traditional b&b's (which always seem stuffy) it was fresh and modern. I... More

I have stayed at many B&Bs and hotels all over the world and I can say that Mikell's was easily the most enjoyable. My wife and I didn't know what we were getting into. Upon meeting Mikell and seeing her beautiful B&B we both instantly fell in love with the atmosphere and Mikell herself. Not only did she go above... More

Een hartelijk ontvangst van Mikell. Ze heeft duidelijk en rustig uitgelegd hoe Asbury Parkin elkaar steekt. Waar kun je het beste eten en waar kun je het beste shoppen. omdat wij op vrijdag aankwamen en het weekend in asbury Park erg druk is, vroeg Mikell of ze een restaurant voor ons moest reserveren. Wij hebben aangegeven waar we van houden... More

We are a Spanish couple who recently moved to NYC and just got back from a great weekend in Asbury Park. We've fallen in love with this Town! All we can say is that so many people (reviews) can't be wrong - the whole experience from the time you walk through Mikell's door is simply a special one. Asbury Park... More

We are not B&B people as a rule--but this is no ordinary B&B, just as Asbury Park is no ordinary Jersey Shore town. Mikell is a wonderful host and a fantastic cook, and we really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful, funky old gem of a house. We will definitely be back!

Beautifully redone 1890s house. No dollies. Lots of great art & furniture. 3 Blocks from beach, boardwalk & Stone Pony. 5 blocks from downtown. Funky, eclectic & welcoming - great breakfasts and Asbury Park stories. Would definitely stay again!

A group of friends rented the carriage house behind the B&B, it was a wonderful, relaxing weekend. Mikell called me the week before to just check in, it was going to be a busy weekend in Asbury because of a music festival and she warned me that streets may get closed but she would get me to her house if...

2nd time visiting The Big House. as before, Mikell was a gracious hostess. Her style is mid-century chill. Sleep well, enjoy a great breakfast and hit the beach. The Korean taco place on the BoardWalk was new and tasty. Shop Cookman Avenue. The Big House is an easy walk from the NJ Transit train and bus station (Mikell did offer... More

We booked Mikell's for a bridal shower for my daughter because we knew we didn't want doilies, but wanted something fresh and classic that would appeal to a multi-generational guest list. Mikell gave us full use of the first floor and provided a beautiful lunch. We used the bride's grandmother's mid-century punch bowl and it fit in perfectly with Mikell's... More
