Recent New Jersey reviews

  • Our family LOVES this home !

    "My family has been staying at this beach house for many years, and I've finally gotten around to writing a review.
 First, we couldn't be happier with this home, which is why we have returned year after year! It feels like our "second home" and the owners have created that wonderful feeling for our family. They are there every saturday to insure that the house is clean and that there are no issues that need to be addressed. They are so kind and accommodating and truly seem to care about their tenants. 
The house is always clean, neat, and very inviting... and the views are AMAZING ! Its only steps from the beach, and they have provided more than enough beach badges! 
We love the outdoor shower, and having the free wifi is great. The location on the island is great. Many stores and restaurants are close enough to bike ride or even walk to. 

We are looking forward to our stay here again next summer !"

  • Fantastic stay!

    "This was our third time back to this property. Location is great proximity to beach, boardwalk, shopping, restaurants and the library/community center. The owners really make every effort to make this feel like a home away from home. Thank you!"

  • A great place for a small family

    "We enjoyed the condo very much. It was the perfect size for my wife and I and our 2 little kids. We prepped breakfast each morning and made sandwiches for the beach and the kitchen worked very well for this. The pool downstairs was a great alternative from the rough surf for our 4 yr old. The location is pretty much ideal, as the beach is a 5 min walk and there are many restaurants within a 5-10 min walk as well. The taco restaurant a block away was fantastic. We'll likely be heading back here."

  • Wonderful Place!

    "We were impressed with the condo. It was clean, bright, and cheery. The location is perfect. We stay in this area every year and this unit was by far the nicest unit for the money. The area is quiet and peaceful, but there are restaurants within walking distance. The heated pool is great after a long day at the beach. Across the street there is an athletic field and playground. We would definitely return to this condo."

Gateway Region Travel Tips

Reasons to Choose Gateway Vacation Rentals

The Gateway region of New Jersey covers the friendly towns and communities of Edgewater, Hoboken, Jersey City, Maplewood and Millburn among others. Most visitors choose to stay in the Gateway area in order to visit New York City, just across the Upper Bay. Choosing a vacation home within 15 minutes of the Big Apple means visitors can enjoy all the sights without the big price tag of staying in Manhattan itself. The towns in the Gateway region have numerous art galleries, shopping malls, great restaurants and museums. They also have excellent transportation links including the PATH train to New York City and ferries to Ellis Island and Liberty Island.

Hotels in New York City can be very pricey, particularly for a family but vacation rentals in the nearby Gateway region are very affordable. Renting a vacation home or apartment gives you a quiet place to return to at the end of each day and relax in comfortable surroundings. Being just 15 minutes from the city allows you easy access to all the city sights from the Gateway region. Enjoy the freedom and space of your own place, with as many bedrooms as you choose. With several TVs and other amenities, the whole family can do as they please. Dining at home can also save money compared to eating out three times a day in NYC. With a well-equipped kitchen and full-size appliances, catering for the family is easy and convenient. Choose a rental home that is within walking distance of the train and avoid the expense and hassle of having a rental car too.

Getting to Gateway Vacation Homes in New Jersey

Flights to the three main airports around New York City are frequent from all over the U.S. and the world.

Places to Visit From Your Gateway Vacation Home

The designer shops and boutiques on Fifth Avenue are legendary and make a great place to window-shop even if you are not going to buy. The Upper East Side is known as “Museum Mile” as it has several world-class art galleries and museums. Central Park is a must-do, whether you want a romantic stroll, a morning jog or a horse-drawn carriage ride. In the winter, the ponds are frozen for skating beneath the stars. Chinatown is an excellent area if you want a cheap and tasty meal, or go upmarket and dine in Little Italy. Greenwich is another delightful historic community to explore.

Visitors can book tickets to a Broadway Show from a discount ticket booth for a memorable evening out.
