About Brian Swedberg

Brian and Maria Swedberg live in Toms River, NJ where they have raised two sons who love the beach and grew up with the waves and sand! They purchased this property in 2000 so they could enjoy the spring and fall at the beach, as well as remodel this home over time and eventually retire in Seaside Park.

Brian Swedberg purchased this house in 2000

Why Brian Swedberg chose New Jersey

Fantastic location, 3rd house from the beach with excellent access to the ocean and bay, as well as a family neighborhood location.

What makes this house unique

Easy access to the beach and close to restaurants and shops. Island Beach State Park is close by, and there is bay access for boating just a few blocks away.

Great Place for a Family to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house, location was great. There were 6 adults and 3 children and had plenty of room to be together or apart. Upon arrival we were impressed how clean the house, bathrooms, refrigerator, stove, etc were. Kitchen was small, however dining room was large enough for all of us. Kitchen was well-stocked. Description on web site is very accurate. All of the porches were lovely.

Owner was very courteous and helpful. I would rent again and recommend to friends as well. Many nice restaurants in the area and nearby Toms River. It was a wonderful, but too short of a vacation for all of us.

Great location, plenty of room and the house had everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed the week. Loved walking the boardwalk every morning and riding bikes. Beach is very clean and quiet. We loved not having to bring beach essentials except towels. We would definitely recommend and stay again.

Thanks Brian!

Great Beach Rental

  • 5 of 5

Three generations of my family had a wonderful time here. The house is spacious and well-cared for. Seaside Park has beautiful beaches and a boardwalk plus we were able to walk into Island Beach State Park. And dolphins graced us with their presence on several days!

My family and I rented the Seaside Park home for three weeks and it was just magical. Great house. Great location. Great neighborhood. The house had everything we needed to make the three weeks seamless. The location could not have been better - three houses from the beach and the neighborhood had a great selection of restaurants and places to entertain the kids. Plus the boardwalk is less than five minutes away. We all look forward to renting this house year after year.

Excellent for families with dogs

  • 5 of 5

We just returned and enjoyed our stay very much. From both the upstairs and downstairs porch, there is a view of the ocean and the bay. Eight beach badges are supplied. I would get a cup of coffee and walk to the beach to watch the sun rise. Seaside Heights boardwalk is a few blocks away. Everything is within walking distance including a B&B Department Store and the Park bakery (with a line around the block for their breakfast sandwiches). Bippy's Pizza is near Seaside Heights boardwalk and has great Pizza and sandwiches. Down the street, at the entrance to Island Beach State Park is The Berkley. If you can, definitely go and ask for a table on the second floor, great food and great views.

At the end of the street the house is located on is an ice cream shop. Run out of propane for the grill? Next door to the ice cream shop is a gas station that sells propane. In fact several shops I saw lining Rte 35 sell propane.

Boogie boards, bikes, and children's beach toys are also available with the house.

The area has a very strong police presence (the Labor Day Craft fair was held on the grounds of the Seaside Park Police Dept which is two blocks away). The area feels very safe and secure.

About the house: rules are simple to follow. The door is open and someone is there to meet you upon arrival. Park in the driveway on the left, there is parking in the back with enough space for several cars. All the instructions you need are in the rental agreement, so definitely read it. There are additional instructions posted in the kitchen. The recycling center to bring all recyclables on your last day is easy to find. Head toward Ocean and hang a right. The last street you come to is 14th which bends to the right. Take that bend to the right and drive almost all the way to the end. The recycling center is on the right.

One warning on the house and it's minor: the coffee maker does not have an automatic shut off. Don't forget to shut it off. And the glass table tops on the porch are foggy from the humidity (I thought my nephew laid his hands all over the table tops...he was innocent, it's the humidity).

A great benefit on the house: we could take our dog. Our dog is elderly and has health problems which require medication. Taking her along made things easier on us and her.

Overall, it was easy and relaxing. If we can go again, I would try this house again.

Undamages by Sandy! This is a beautiful area on the Jersey Shore, near all the action of the Boardwalk, restaurants, rides and shopping, but located in a residential area, with a Victorian flair. The home is the 3rd from the ocean, just steps from the beach, in a quiet family area, with wide streets and fantastic views of the ocean. Just across the bridge is the town of Toms River, the County Seat with Ocean County Mall and all the amenities of a good size town.

Other Activities: Beach, all water recreation, near amusement area 1 mile away.
