About this listing
Perfect Shore rental close to the ocean and the bay. Great for families.
The rental is available year round. One week minimum stay from Memorial Day to Labor Day, Saturday to Saturday please.
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 a large, enclosed outdoor shower, washing line for wet bathing suits and towels, large deck, gas-fired barbecue and ample off street parking.
Interaction with Guests
We are not usually on-site when the guests are there.
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.
No smoking inside the house at all.
Please note that guests are required to bring their own sheets and towels. Like most other Shore rentals we do not provide these.
Please rinse off sand before entering the house
Please make sure the windows are closed if the a/c is on.
I really enjoyed staying here! The pictures were very representative. The place was located one block from the beach, two blocks from a state park, and in a very family friendly area. The outdoor shower helped reduce a sandy mess in the house and the kitchen was fully stocked and kept clean! The parking area in the front (yard) was free and convenient. Francine was very responsive and very helpful. I would definitely stay here again!
We had a wonderful vacation at seaside park. The home was just as seen in the pictures and kept very clean. The deck and proximity to the beach was perfect! Francine was very responsive to all questions we had prior to our stay. We highly recommend staying here. Thanks Francine!
The cozy cottage was superb for us - nice to have it for just the three days/nights we needed. It worked well to have both 1 and 2 for our two families.
Everything was clean when we got there - my wife particularly liked the kitchens. A/C worked well but the weather was so nice it wasn't vital. The outdoor shower was perfect for rinsing off after being on the shore. The only minor faults: the "queen" sized bed in #1 is really just "full" sized and #2 didn't have a coffee perker. That made it ideal for us to have coffee ready on one side to lure everyone for breakfast!
The rental was exactly as described and just perfect. The kitchen was well stocked and we were able to make all of our meals without a problem, except that we encountered some difficulty with the coffee pot. I loved the outdoor shower and the porch got the best sunlight and views of the sunset. The neighborhood was terrific and I loved Island Beach State Park- the proximity to the beach and the park was key. We were very comfortable here. I was quite impressed for my first time using airbnb.
Very nice apartment with two showers and descent kitchen! Awesome place for people on a budget!
Francine was really helpful to answer any questions. The house was really clean and true to the pictures. The area was really nice and walking distance to the beach.

About the Host, Francine
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.
