About Mike and Tracey

Tracey & I have two kids who have grown up renting summer houses with us. We all love the beach - it is a year-round discussion at our house - when we're going and what friends we're inviting. We also know from years of renting what makes a rental perfect. High-end amenities, and not forgetting anything... you will find that experience with our house.

Mike and Tracey purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Mike and Tracey chose Manasquan

We were looking for a place for ourselves where we could live at the beach, and we equipped the house with all of the amenities and features to made it a comfortable space for friends and their families.

What makes this cottage unique

One house from the oceanfront. The beach is 30 yards from your back door. What else can you ask for? Undercounter ice machine, indoor/outdoor cedar shower, Central AC, fireplace, internet - just amazing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Mike was super accommodating and quick to reply to any messages/questions. The house is absolutely beautiful and in a great location, being only steps away from the beach and inlet. Would definitely stay here again, and recommend to others!” - From AirBNB

Lovely beach with all you could ask for!

  • 5 of 5

The property was upscale and a pleasure to stay in.It was very clean and nicely decorated. We ate out during our stay but the kitchen had everything you need to cook.

It was literally a very short walk to the beautiful Atlantic, a cafe , ice cream shop and the local hangout Leggetts was also in walking distance. I was surprised that linens were not included and we had to rent them, however they were all made up at arrival. I would definitely recommend this home to my friends. Mike was very attentive, and responded quickly to our questions. A great experience, wanted to stay longer if we could.

Relaxing and accommodating

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience at this cute cozy beach house . Wish we could have stayed longer . Steps to the beach

Great shops downtown

Close to all surrounding beach towns and restaurants . Quiet street . If there was anything to improve , (not much since this was nearly perfect , I'd put mirrors in the bedrooms on the wall . And maybe a small trash bin in the rooms as well . The numbers in the garage were hard to read. I'd put them bolder or darker . Other than that , we couldn't have asked for a better place to rent. House was decorated very nice . Very clean too! Owners are wonderful as well .

Perfect beach house

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the house was perfect. The house was very clean with a new kitchen and bathrooms. The beach is right there and the beds were very comfortable. Thank you for allowing us to use your home for the week.

My husband and I along with our 3 children (12,10, 8) just returned from a perfect week in Manasquan. Mike and Tracey's home exceeded our expectations (which isn't always easy). Not only is the house immaculate but it is beautifully decorated. Everything is clean, new, and fresh (including the Weber grill). All details are taken care of so you can just drop your bags and start your vacation. We loved that we could easily walk to the beach, boardwalk, and a few restaurants. Carlson's and GeeGee's are a must! Thank you Mike and Tracey, we had a fabulous vacation. I highly recommend.

This is a nice, clean well appointed cottage - efficient for the size. No outdoor space but easy access to a beautiful family oriented beach with surfing and walking path. Owners are nice to work with.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having you! There is an outdoor area right outside the back door with a teak table, chairs, and bbq - sorry you did not get a chance to enjoy it during your short stay.
