Lake Como vacation rentals

Magic moments at Lake Como

Looking for the classic Jersey Shore vacation, but with a grown-up twist? Well, a Lake Como vacation rental might just be the one for you. Only a few minutes from those white sand beaches, Lake Como's a quiet, residential area, a bit more chilled out than Belmar and the boroughs directly on the shore. It's the sort of place to kick back on the couch in your vacation rental, stroll by the lake, or dine out in one of the laid-back local restaurants, safe in the knowledge that you're only ever a short walk from that famous Jersey Shore action.

Fifteen minutes to a peach of a beach

Many of Lake Como's vacation rentals are clustered along the edge of the lake itself, and a glance at a map will show you that nowhere in the borough is more than 15 minutes from the beaches of the Jersey Shore. And trust us, beaches don't come much better than this. Surfing is big round here, but you'll also find people swimming, fishing, and boating. On the other hand, you'll see plenty of people taking a relaxed stroll on the mile-long boardwalk, or just working real hard on their tan. There are plenty of events and festivals, many of them geared around surfing and beach sports.

Indoor ideas for when sunstroke strikes

There's never a dull day with the Atlantic on your doorstep. In the summer there's a full program of weekend concerts, plus regular movie screenings on the beach. "Jaws" is a favorite. And if you feel like you've had too much sun and want to hide inside for a bit, a science museum and a military history museum are both nearby. For night owls, Lake Como itself is also home to one of the most legendary clubs in the area, Bar Anticipation, featuring not just an artificial waterfall, but also 3 full-size beach volleyball courts.

A solid reason for a plunge in the Atlantic

Summers tend to be warm and humid, as if you needed any more of an excuse to take a refreshing dip in the ocean. Fast forward to winter, and the temperatures drop off considerably, often falling below freezing. Not that the fishermen care, of course. Whatever the season, a bit of rain is a fact of life with a Lake Como vacation rental. In summer it can sometimes take the form of thunderstorms, while in winter - if it's cold enough - that rain might fall as snow. Pack a parka if you're planning on showing up in the off-season.

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside

Lake Como is one of a long strip of boroughs and townships stretching along the Atlantic coast, and if you wondered why this part of New Jersey is so popular, you're about to find out. Try white sand beaches, awesome waves, and sunrises and sunsets that could bookend a Hollywood blockbuster. Humans rule these busy beaches and breaks, but venture up the coast a little and you'll start to encounter a bit more marine life. Sign up for a boat trip, and depending on the time of year, you might be in with a chance of seeing seals, dolphins, and even humpback whales.
