Located just 4 houses from the beach, this 100 year old home is loaded with charm and was the queen of the shore in its hey day.

No need for planning a full day at the beach, come and go as you please with the 4 beach badges provided.

Please be aware that we rent to families or groups age 25 or older only.
You will never want to leave the second floor front porch. But if you need window A/C units can keep the inside cool. And there is a washer and dryer in the basement for your convenience.

As Jersey natives, Mike and Tina, grew up vacationing at the Jersey shore and his parents even owned a house in Long Beach Island. Mike is a native of East Brunswick, Tina of Berkeley Heights. Now both work just 15 minutes from where each other grew up, Tina for Chromocell and Mike for Alcatel-Lucent (yes, still). Although we met while living in California, we love New Jersey. There is no better shore.
Tina Garyantes purchased this house in 2005
Convienent to NYC and Philadelphia, practically on beach, part of the main land so there are many ways to get here and this saves lots of travel time, a real year round community, beautiful beach, nice community.
Great walking, kids have more places to walk than at home, safe family oriented neighborhood, convienent shopping, all the comforts of home but at the beach and I rarely see any reason to leave the deck.
Our weekend stay was truly a great experience. We had a "girls getaway" and the house was very accomodating We came from New York and stayed from June 4-6. I heard about your house thorugh "homeaway.com". I chose it because it was priced well, had a great location and looked great on line. The weather was hot and pleasant, we went to the beach, got some ice cream, did a lot of dancing, enjoyed some great food and time on the patio. The house was neat and clean and roomy. The rooms were so cute! The colors and decor were lovely! I look forward to being hear again! The process was easy and simple to rent. We felt right at hoe and are thankful you made this experience wonderful for my group and me!
My family loved this home: it was spacious, well appointed and only four houses in from beautiful Belmar beach. The house itself is beautiful, and the kitchen and bathrooms have been nicely updated. The owners provided many books and games for entertainment, the kitchen was well stocked with equipment and basic supplies, and the beach badges were an added pleasant surprise. The rooms are a perfect size, not too big and not too small and the general layout of the house is fabulous: if you have kids you can put them in the upper level rooms and then close the door at the top of the stairs: you'll feel like you're on vacation without them LOL. At night, the breeze coming off the ocean was delightfully refreshing when sitting on the front deck and you can't beat a 2 minute walk to the beach itself. Location-wise, there are several places to shop well within walking distance [7-11 was 2 blocks, dunkin' donuts 4] from the house making it very convenient. Walking into town is a bit further, maybe 6 blocks but really isn't that far. Also, there is nothing better in Belmar than having your own off street parking spot. I grew up less than 15 minutes from Belmar so I am quite familiar with the surrounding areas -- there is plenty of shopping nearby, Pt. Pleasant beach is a few minutes away for a nice little boardwalk with attractions and an aquarium (perfect for a rainy day), Manasquan reservoir in Howell for a nature hike (also has an environmental center for kids), Great Adventure amusement park (we DONT recommend the water park there, we went last year and it was the worst water park we'd ever been to), outlet shopping in Jackson...you can even catch a train into NYC right from Belmar if you want to hit the city for a day [or night]. Belmar beach itself is a great little beach--very clean it also has a boardwalk with a few concessions: great for early morning runs/walks/bike rides. You can also rent a boat from the marina if that's your thing. Seaside Heights has a huge boardwalk and is not that far away, and Atlantic City is even doable for a day trip. Don't forget Asbury Park if you are a Bruce fan! (what can i say, I'm a true Jersey girl). We highly recommend this lovely home. (we recommend for tourists w/out a car but in that case bicycles would be nice to have- you can probably even rent them somewhere but not sure where)
The accommodations were just as listed, as were the amenities promised. Upon arrival we found the home clean and ready for our occupancy. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to friends and family. I found any questions I had answered promptly by the owner. Belmar's beach was clean and there were plenty of fact,I ties available on the boardwalk.
The weather was perfect and the accommodations were roomy, comfortable and family friendly. The outdoor shower was a wonderful way to wash off the sand and salt after a glorious day at the beach. The location could not have been better and we always ended our day on the deck enjoying a fami,y meal and the ocean view.
Hope to vacation here again next year.
Want to send a big Thank You to Tina and Mike... We had a wonderful week staying in their shore house. The house was fully equipped with everything you'll need to enjoy a wonderful family vacation. The location was perfect, the proximity to the Beach was just great. The kitchen was completely stocked with
all the comforts of home to make our stay easy and so enjoyable. The outside deck was such an added bonus, spent most of our early mornings and late evenings enjoying the view of the Ocean. We would definitely recommend this home to any Family looking for a great get away. Thanks again
The Rogers Family.
My family and I had a wonderful time in Belmar. The home was perfect -- the main floor has a lovely open layout and a great deck. The upstairs rooms were also great. The home's proximity to the beach was also great. I definitely recommend.
Perfect location - a few houses back from the water but far enough away from Ocean Ave. to be quiet. The house was well equipped with many thoughtful touches from the owner. Great view of beach and ocean from the second floor deck but deck was also perfectly safe for my twenty month old grandson. Would definitely stay again.
Brought the family from Boston for a long weekend. We could see the ocean and waves first thing in the morning as we sat out on the deck with our coffee. Short walk to the beach. Very nice kitchen.
Jenkinson's aquarium, multiple theater options in the area.
