Awesome location, bedroom walls not optimal

  • 4 of 5

The location is amazing, you couldn't ask for anything more. The space behind the house is also pretty awesome if you have kids, our 2 year olds played in this space everyday. The only thing I didn't like is that the bedroom walls don't go all the way up to the ceiling which is pretty tough with babies/toddlers that are affected by noise/light coming from the other rooms. If the walls went all the way up the house would be perfect.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us! I am glad to hear that you and your family had an enjoyable vacation!!! I hope to have you back in the future! This house has been in my family for 3 generations. It was built in the very early 1930's. The concept of the bungalow design of the walls not completely reaching to the ceiling/ roof was to promote circulation and ventilation of the ocean breezes to help keep the house cool on the hot summer days. This was a common architectural design during that time as there was no central air or window a/c units. It was important to me to maintain the original design features of the house because that is part of the charm and what makes it unique, it is what sets it apart from the more contemporary counterparts. Again, thank you for staying and for taking such good care of the house while you were there!

Great Visit

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I purchased a week at this property as a gift for our parents. Everyone had a great time and will remember the trip for years. We lucked out with the weather but the house itself fit us well. The location is amazing with the beach only steps away, along with a large gazebo on the main walkway where we spent some time. There are really good places to eat and the people are friendly. The landlord was helpful and the overall transaction was very smooth. Thank you!

Best Rental in Squan

  • 5 of 5

My family has been renting houses in Squan for over 30 years and this was by far the best vacation and rental we've experienced. The location is not only perfect but it's so much fun watching everyone come and leave the beach. It feels like it's beachfront because of the great front sand area and seeing/hearing the ocean. Our kids LOVED the house and how close it is to the beach, boardwalk and Gee Gee's. When the kids went to bed, grandma's babysat so the moms could enjoy a quick walk to Legget's! There's AC in every room which wasn't even needed because of the great ocean breeze. We will be renting EVERY summer! Thank you so much!

Hidden Gem!

  • 5 of 5

This house really is a hidden gem among the monsters along the boardwalk area! Very comfortable and cozy. Very close to the beach, but far enough away for a little peace and quiet! Looking forward to my next visit.

Great Summer Rental

  • 5 of 5

From sunrise to sunset every minute of our stay was a pleasure in this charming beach cottage. Updated, it is comfortable, clean,& equipped with everything needed for a pleasant stay. The location is perfect, just a few steps to the beach or walkway to the Inlet. We rode our bikes there every morning for breakfast at Carlson's Corner. The little patio at the back of the house is perfect for a simple lunch in the shade. I especially like the second floor front porch. It is a delightfully breezy and cool spot to watch a brilliant fireworks display or a colorful sunset on another perfect vacation at the beach. We're going back. I forgot to mention that fishermen like this location for their early morning surf fishing, especially in the fall.

Charming, practically ocean-front with one-block-off pricing!

  • 5 of 5

Every once in a while we have lots of overflow and need another cottage, and this has become our go-to favorite. Right on Riddle Way by the gazebo, you can see the waves from some upstairs windows. We like how they have improved it (more window AC units) and lots of fresh paint and sprucing up. It has a cute covered 2nd floor porch on the back for sunsets. One of the nicest perks of this cottage is that the owners have lots of plantings & that adds so much to the outdoor area. There is a grill right off the back door too. And that dedicated off-street parking spot is a BIG plus. Manasquan is the greatest little beach town!

Manasquan is a wonderful spot for vacation. There are many beautiful beaches, fishing at the inlet, long stretch of boardwalk, several parks, fantastic center of town with many nice shops to explore and many many choices for dining and a theater. If you like an evening with amusement rides Point Pleasant is a short ride to the next town over.
