Guestbook comments from the owner

This very spacious, waterfront home is well-ventilated and sunny. It has all the amenities you will need and is extremely comfortable. The house has awesome bay sunsets with a wonderful dock and is a very short walk from a spectacular, clean, quiet, almost private, expansive beach. The house and grounds are very well kept and the surrounding homes from bay to beach are a gorgeous mix of charming estates and cottages. This awesome Mantoloking, New Jersey neighborhood is perfect for biking, walking, jogging, swimming, surfing, boating, fishing, crabbing, shelling and yes relaxing!

This was by far our best New Jersey rental experience yet. We also had great views of the Brick, Bayhead and Point Pleasant fireworks on the forth of July. WOW! We had a great vacation here!!!

Great House, Great Hosts

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 1/2 weeks there from Late June to early July. Jim and Helen are great hosts. The house was spacious and clean and the location was perfect. Sunsets were incredible and the beach was literally steps away from the house. Jime and Helen made sure that all was provided for...we only needed our food to cook and clothes to wear. I highly recommend this house.

Beach and Bay Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We so much enjoyed our stay over the Fourth of July week. The house was great. More room than we could even think of using. Two master Bedrooms make it great for sharing with ample room for additional guests. We cooked in almost all the meals. Kitchen waswell stocked with every utensil and dish that you could imagine. Plus it was equipped with an outdoor grill which we also took advantage of as well as the wet bar adjacent to the kitchen. What we liked the most was being situated on the bay. Our family has been summering in Bay Head for over 50 years and I never realized how much enjoyment we would get by being on the bay. We would kayak in the morning go to the beach and than kayak and crab at night.. The beach access was very close which is not always the case in Mantaloking. The decks overlooking the bay are spectacular and the downstairs one is covered so in the event it does rain you can still enjoy the outdoors. I would definitely rent this home again and look forward to another visit.

Family of four

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home from September 2014 through June 2015 and absolutely loved our stay. The home is beautifully appointed with all the amenities you would need. The bedrooms are lovely with 3 of them located on the second floor balcony with fantastic views of the bay and the gorgeous sunsets. The gourmet kitchen is an absolute delight. The dining and living rooms offer bay views and sitting out on the first floor deck is a wonderful way to end the day enjoying the quiet of the evening and the sunsets. The neighborhood is wonderful and we enjoyed taking walks and riding our bikes. The beach is a short walk across the street where you can spend the day relaxing and watching the waves of the Atlantic Ocean. There is plenty to do on the island, tons of great restaurants, boardwalks, water activities and shopping. Our hosts were wonderful throughout our stay and we look forward to renting this home again. We highly recommend renting this beautiful home for a wonderful and relaxing vacation.
