Average Rating for this Community
As the new 2018 Resident Club President, my fellow Officers and I are committed to bringing sunshine and compassion to all our community members. Our aim is to make you happy to live here. Our monthly meetings are entertaining and educational, with homemade desserts, decaf and regular coffee. Special monthly events provide more fellowship opportunities, dancing, and great food. We invite you to consider Whiting Station.
This is a very lovely community and very "underrated" in my opinion. Although the homes are older -they are very well-built and easy to update if desired. Homeowners here take pride in their homes and the community is well cared for. The pool and tennis courts are extremely lovely. Residents are friendly and very neighborly. HOA fees are affordable. I like being away from the congestion of Toms River and Brick and closer to Lacey Township and Forked River for shopping.
We looked at many developments, throughout the Toms River area, we went west to, Manchester and found a great value,low taxes,and highly desirable environment with plenty of trees, also gas heat, which not too many developments had, in the under 150k,price range.Very nice people, quiet 10 miles from the bays in Lacey, and Bayville,check it out you won't be sorry.
Love living here but before you decide, ask to read the HOA rules.
At first sight this is a lovely community, however when you dig deeper you see a difference. The trees are pretty but so shady it's hard to grow grass. You cannot cut them down as the Board of Trustees denies your request. The HOA is run by the same 10 people that refuse to keep up with the times. You can't park your second car in the street, you must park it either in the garage or at the clubhouse. Your car must have a sticker on it to do so. This village was built when most people had only one car but today that's not necessarily true. They spend most of the HOA fees on the clubhouse improvements but have over a million dollars in the bank. They do nothing to help the elderly or infirm of the neighborhood, they just pass more rules. They are demanding everyone remove the underground oil tanks but provide no financial assistance. The social life of this community is very sparse and limited to a handful of people. Unless you are part of the governing body your request for improvements to your property is usually denied. People constantly complain about their neighbors. You are required to attend a meeting AFTER you buy the house so they can explain all of the rules to you and the list is quite extensive. When I was considering buying here I asked for a copy of the rules and regulations but was told I could read them but could not have a copy. I bought my house about 8 years ago and hope the attitude would change as new people got involved in the HOA but it has not. This is a very restrictive community with very little to offer.
