About Mike & 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. Small amenities, and not forgetting anything... you will find that experience with our house.

Mike & Tracey purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Mike & Tracey chose Jersey Shore

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 50 feet from your back door. What else can you ask for?

Amazing! It had everything you could need!

  • 5 of 5

The property was functional and spacious. Having rented in manasquan before this property was by far the best for children and guests! Every detail was thought out like the ice maker and Sonos! Mike and his family super super friendly and gracious hosts! We will definitely be back! I highly recommend this property if you plan to vistit manasquan in the near future!

Amazing week at this perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for a wonderful week at this perfect getaway beach home. We have little kids under age 8 and it was so easy to run back to the house for whatever they needed. So close to everything - even got ice cream on the corner each night.

Memories for a lifetime - We love Manasquan!

Perfect Location to Enjoy Manasquan and the Beaches!

  • 5 of 5

What a great cottage at the beach in friendly, laid back Manasquan. The 3-bedroom has recently been remodeled, tastefully decorated, and is a magnificent escape from the stresses of life. Located 50 steps from the beach and beach walk, and a short one block walk to the inlet, a great place to watch the boats come and go. Famous Carlson's Restaurant is a short walk for breakfast or lunch and many great dinner options are a walk or few minute drive away. This is the place to stay in Manasquan. The owner's, Mike and Tracey, are great hosts and making the reservation was easy and straight forward. We highly recommend 398 First Avenue for your next stay in Manasquan.

Incredible stay

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely incredible house - felt like home for the week. Extremely well laid out and excellent amenities - as always. The location of this house is OUTSTANDING. So easy to accommodate with a small child... right in for naps and bathroom usage. They went above and beyond. Fairly priced and EXTREMELY easy to work w/. Can't wait to book again.

Book this property!

  • 5 of 5

This is very thoughtfully laid out and designed 3 bedroom beach cottage. My husband, kids, parents and I had a wonderful time. The owners are wonderful and so easy to work with. The location near the inlet on Whiting beach and near surfer beach is perfect for everyone - people who like to swim, body surf, surf, walk on the rocks and eat ice-cream at Carlson's. The very nice touches that don't always get mentioned are - surround sound, an ice maker, a cedar shower and beautiful hard woods with central vac! No need to look any farther!
