Spacious Shore rental close to the beach and the bay. Ideal for families.
The rental is available year round. One week minimum stay from Memorial Day to Labor Day, Saturday to Saturday please.
This is the perfect summer rental at the Jersey Shore in South Seaside Park. If you are looking for a classic shore rental close to everything but also quiet enough to get away from it all, this is the location for you. The apartment is one block from the ocean, two blocks from the bay and Island Beach State Park is three blocks behind. There are numerous restaurants all within walking distance ranging from very casual to some of the finest dining at the Shore. The Boardwalk at Seaside Heights is approximately a 5 minute drive away; boating, kayaking, crabbing and jet skiing are available on the bay and a playground, half court, tennis courts and softball diamond are all within a few blocks. Bring your bikes or rent them in town - the whole town is bike friendly. Cycle into the State Park and enjoy its' pristine beaches and abundance of natural wildlife.
The rental itself is actually one of three apartments contained within a three-family home which makes it ideal for larger groups or families who want to vacation together but still have their own separate place and privacy. Alternatively if you are coming on your own you are guaranteed privacy and quiet.
Each separate, self-contained apartment is exactly the same size comprising a spacious living room and large kitchen downstairs with two double bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs. The living rooms benefit from a pull-out sofa. The kitchens are fully equipped with everything you may need and there is a barbecue grill outside for tenants to use. The house also has an excellent fully enclosed outdoor shower.
PLEASE NOTE THAT TOWELS AND BEDSHEETS ARE NOT PROVIDED. GUESTS MUST BRING THEIR OWN.
The front two apartments benefit from a huge shared deck while the back apartment has its own private deck. In addition there is ample off-street parking for each apartment. The rear apartment (number 3) has the further benefit of a washer and dryer.
Families, couples or adult friends sharing only please.
Guests have access to the outdoor shower, barbecue and outdoor washing line, handy for wet bathing suits/towels etc. Each apartment has plenty of outdoor space and off street parking.

The house was just as it was shown in the photos. So close to the ocean and to the bay! We had a great time and Francine was extremely responsive.
We stayed at Francine’s rental on the last weekend of the summer. We made a last minute request to stay for the weekend in order to meet some friends from out of town. Francine was great to let us stay just the two days since she had no reservations at that time. We arrived on Friday afternoon and when we checked the wrong door to get in, we contacted her mother who lives locally and her mom, who immediately picked up and directed us to the correct location. (There must have been some confusion about reservations for the 3-plex since at 10pm another family showed up to stay in that apartment. They called Francine’s mom as well and we did not hear from them again so it must have all worked out). I had not stayed in this area before so I was not prepared for the “typical shore rental” as my husband called it. The rental is exactly as it looks in the pictures but it is difficult to see details. There are some holes in the walls and some of the tiles have come down in the kitchen. I put down towels over the couches to sit and wore shoes in the house. If you are using this as a stopping point between the beach and going out at night then it is a fine rental space. It is in a good beach-going location and we appreciated Francine letting us stay.
This was the first time we used airbnb and Francine made it very easy for us. The description of the house was pretty accurate except there isn't a pullout sofa there was however a cot in the closet. While we were there we had a couple of problems: during a heavy rain there was a pretty big leak in our closet(luckily we didn't have anything in there), a bunch of tiles fell off around the kitchen window as well, and we thought we were allowed access to the shed because it was unlocked only later to find out we didn't have a key and our stuff got locked in. Luckily, Francine's aunt was nearby to help us out. Overall we loved the location and enjoyed our week at Seaside Park!
Francine is an incredibly gracious and welcoming host via online communication, so I can only imagine what she is like in person. She made the entire process of booking and staying so incredibly easy, and as a medical student, I am grateful to anyone who is able to do that for me. The home was absolutely perfect. It was clean, welcoming, and charming. The neighborhood is safe and calm. It was less than a two minute walk from the home to the beach. There was plenty of parking for my group. The home also had ample sleeping accommodations. Everything indicated on the description was accurate, and I found my experience to be ten-fold better than I had anticipated. Thank you Francine, for your wonderful place and graciousness.
Francine was quick to respond to all of our questions. Her place was as we expected, which was great. We were one block from the beach and also great restaurants so you could just arrive, park your car and never step in it again until it was time to go home if you wanted to! The place is next to the Island Beach State Park which is so beautiful and I wish we had discovered it sooner. We loved the outdoor shower and used the picnic table. We had a great time together in Francine's place! Thank you!
We did a thursday night/friday for my girlfriends bday. The building has 3 rental apartments, ample parking, 1 block from the beach, and right around the corner from two resturaunts. It worked out great. Thanks
Francine was quick to reply to out last minute request which was nice and had detailed instructions on how to get into the apt. Close by the state park. A few things about the apt were disappointing, namely the bathroom was was not clean and there was no toilet paper.

I'm a displaced American who has lived in Europe for decades.
I'm easy going, read a lot, enjoy movies, the theatre, listening to music and have developed a big interest in football by default thanks to my son. Love to cook and entertain and like having a house full of people but will respect your privacy too.
Have travelled a lot throughout the US, Europe and parts of the Middle East but not as much as I want. Still want to check out Southeast Asia and parts of Africa and hope to do that soon.
