About Joe Mecca

My name is Joe Mecca, and my wife's name is Nancy. We live full-time in North Jersey, where I am an Attorney and Nancy has a cupcake business. This home is very special to my wife, my four kids, our dog Auggie(pictured) and I, as it holds a lot of great memories at the Jersey Shore for our family and friends.

Joe Mecca purchased this house in 2004

Why Joe Mecca chose Jersey Shore

This property is uniquely situated on the bay, but still close to the beach, the boardwalk, public transportation, restaurants and bars, and the Garden State Parkway.

What makes this house unique

This house has a way of creating life-long memories. It was built as a permanent residence, so it has all of the amenities you could ask for, but it was renovated to suite our family and the many guests that we have throughout the summer, so there are multiple beds in most bedrooms, many bathrooms, many places to hang out and relax, and plenty of indoor and outdoor seating to share meals. It is perfect for multiple families, friends tagging along, and every generation (grandparents love the first floor suite).

Renter Beware

  • 1 of 5

rented this house for my wife and her family to celebrate her parents lives. Upon arrival I found the house was tired, the furniture old and falling apart. Beds were very uncomfortable. Ants were so prevalent I needed to purchase ant spray. I didn't say anything to my guests but they did bring it to my attention. If you do choose to rent I strongly suggest you use Home Away and not go through the owner. He told me I could not get the Damage Protection and required a security deposit. I reluctantly complied only to have to make several phone calls before I finally got my deposit returned. This process took 5 weeks. When I did receive my deposit back I found out I was being charged 1/3 of my security deposit for the front door handle whose internal mechanism failed. This hardly seems like something myself or guests could have broken. When I tried to question this the owner refused to return my phone calls. I will now have to pursue this matter in court. This ridiculous charge ruined the moment for me and my guests.

Owner's Response: This review came as a great surprise to me and my family who have received nothing but glowing and positive reviews for our beautiful home. The irony of receiving of this review is the fact that we never dealt with whomever wrote the review.. First, we accommodated these guests by providing a great atmosphere for the Christmas holidays. We set up a Christmas tree, decorated the house with lights and other holiday decorations. We provided extra tables and chairs for their large family and holiday celebration for, we were told, 35+ people. During the stay the writer's wife communicated with us with nothing but thanks and praise. There as no mention of "tired furniture" or "uncomfortable beds." There was mention of the seasonal ants - they rented in late December and for the northeast this was highly unusual. As to the security, we did not retain one-third - this is an exaggeration and the return of the deposit date is another exaggeration. The guests did some other damage to the property but the deduction was solely for the exact cost of replacing the front door lock and only after a professional installed a complete new unit after the guests delivered us a plastic bag of parts after apparently trying to fix the damage themselves. We provided a check for the deposit minus the full documented balance together with a copy of the receipt of the locksmith who installed the new lock system. The threat of a lawsuit by the guest was gratuitous and an unfair threat which is yet to be acted upon. Considering we received nothing but thanks and praise during the guests stay, this hostile review seems to be an unfair way to deal with a legitimate issue brought upon by the abuse or accident of the guests. All of our guests are more than encouraged to bring all issues, damages, repairs or deficiencies to our attention immediately - not to try to fix things themselves or tell us about any issues - big or small - upon departure. In this case, we acted upon the broken lock problem - the lock was less than than 18 months - when we found a bag of parts upon inspection of the guests departure. Had we been aware of the problem, we could have just called back the locksmith who installed the system instead of fixing the bad repair attempt made by the disgruntled husband of the very happy wife and her extended family.

Clean and roomy

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best times we had this year - there were 8 children ages 2 thru 10 and we did not see them with the pool and dock for fishing. The adults enjoyed the pool and the porch my favorite and Joe the owner could not be any nicer thank you. Hopefully we will see u next year.

Best home for a family reuinion !!

  • 5 of 5

This home was wonderful for our family reunion. The pool was a huge hit and the dock was perfect for crabbing. We rented kayaks and paddle boards for the river and everyone enjoyed them. The house is large enough to accommodate a large group. We have amazing memories of this vacation and Joe is the best landlord!! Couldn't ask for a better place to stay.

Great family vacation the Jersey Shore!

  • 5 of 5

The house was AMAZING & a perfect setting for a fun filled family vacation (all 23 of us, ranging in age from 77 - 11 years old). Can't say enough wonderful things about the house: the owner Joe very helpful & welcoming, house loaded with great amenities, beautiful setting on the river (no mosquitoes!), pool & hot tub, crabbing, beautiful first floor suite for the grandparents - I could go on & on & on! We all had a great time!!!! I would definitely recommend this house for a big family vacation!

A week to remember

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a fantastic week at this house. Made a visit in the fall to check out the layout, but it was just like the descriptions on the internet. A perfect layout for a large group, the property is very clean and well maintained. Every question you could ask was laid out for you in the house instructions and Joe the owner was always readily available with any questions or problems. Great crabbing dockside and a beautiful, well functioning kitchen for the crab sauce. Bike trail on the road adjacent to the house, beautiful scenery from most bedrooms and if Denino's South would deliver our pizzas everything was perfect. I had taken my boat up from NYC and docked at the house for the week, beautiful boating area. It actually was a perfect stay, highly recommended!
