About Sandra

My name is Sandra and I first moved to the Shore in 1988. It's my favorite area of New Jersey, close enough to NYC without all the hustle and bustle and retaining the small town feeling. I've lived in other beach towns in other states but I always return to the Jersey Shore. My family and friends have enjoyed this beach home for 10 years. This is the first year we've opened it up to the Public. We'd like our home to be enjoyed by other families. And we love dogs and recognize it's difficult to enjoy your vacation when you've left your special friend boarded. Unfortunately, some of our family members are severely allergic to cats, so we have to omit them from the rental house.

Sandra purchased this house in 2004

Why Sandra chose Belmar

When I first started looking to re-establish myself at the Shore, I looked for a beach town no more than an hour and a half from New York City and with train transportation into the City and Newark Liberty International Airport. I looked in the nearby beach towns but Belmar's unique location drew my eye. It is surrounded by four bodies of water, two lakes, the ocean and a river. There are playgrounds beach side at approximately every 4 blocks. A Surf school is run in the Summer Month's right on Belmar Beach. The town continues to offer family oriented Summer entertainment. Concerts on Friday nights at the town's Pyanoe Square and Movies on the Beach. Shark River provides kayaking, sailing and SUP activities. The Marina runs chartered fishing boat tours. And Belmar draws many professional water sport competitions as well as Volley Ball tournaments. There are Festivals at least once a month in warm weather seasons.

What makes this house unique

I looked at many properties but as soon as I entered this home, I knew this was the one. I wanted a home that would embrace me and not overpower. And most importantly, I needed a bright, sunny home. The house's corner lot provides for lots of light as well as great cross ventilation breezes. The porch is enjoyable all Summer.

The home has 3 of the bedrooms located on the ground level easily accessible to children and seniors while maintaining a more private bedroom upstairs. The upper level bedroom is my favorite. Unfortunately, it does not photograph as big and open as it is in reality.

My neighbors, for the majority, are full timers so it is very important to me my renters maintain the integrity of the neighborhood. The home is at equal distance to the beach and Main Street, both sides offering a wide selection of food options.

The train station is 9 blocks away, easily walkable. There is no need for a car but you'll find Belmar is a biking town. We love this home so much, we christened it Sandy Paws.

Cute beachy home with lots of helpful welcoming touches

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for the second time this past week. The house is well organized and well stocked - lots of extra linens, real (not token) kitchen items, beach wagon etc. The house feels like vacation when you walk inside, with a very beachy relaxed theme. The owner added some cute outdoor touches which make relaxing on the couches outside by the grill even more appealing. Very comfortable and we will be back. Thanks for a great stay!

Beautiful and comfortable house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from vacation at this lovely house and really enjoyed our time there. The front porch was our favorite and we spent many hours out there with our morning coffee or evening cocktails. The house had plenty of room for our family of four (and could have handled more. The house was clean, beautifully decorated, and well organized with lots of thoughtful touches - we particularly appreciated the coffee cabinet, cocktail table, and BBQ supplies! The kitchen was very well stocked (and we have stayed at many VRBO houses so we have good comparisons). There were lots of beach items to borrow and of course the outdoor shower. We would be happy to stay here again!

Very clean and nicely decorated

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this adorable and well equipped beach house. The description is all very accurate. The beds were all comfortable. The outdoor property offered more than we expected with a fire pit and outdoor patio set in the back, a smaller table on the side by the grill, and the lovely front porch. I was worried that the location being in a popular party rental area would make sleeping a challenge but we didn't hear a thing at night and enjoyed watching the action while sitting on the front porch. The only thing the house was lacking was some sharper knives but otherwise very well equipped including bikes, beach gear, linens, and all needed kitchen appliances.

I found this beautiful cottage very welcoming and beautifully decorated....

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at the cottage we were welcomed by an adorably decorated and very beachy home... It was everything I imagined and my favorite space was the porch and the corner chaise. Great spot for reading or enjoying a cocktail.. Our stay here was enjoyable and the beach was within walking distance. There is nothing like the JERSEY SHORE.......Than you Sandra!

Excellent beach rental!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at this property. Our group consisted of six adults and one toddler. Upon our arrival, we were all impressed by how clean and well-equipped the property was. We were all comfortable in our rooms and we loved the front porch. We would happily stay here again.

Belmar paradise!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful house! Every nook and cranny has something beachy :-) My family and I had a terrific time. Sandra was very helpful to make sure we had all the important details of our trip well ahead of schedule. The house was so cute and had plenty of room for our guests, although we found ourselves sitting on the porch the majority of the time. The people watching on 16th is the best! We will definitely come back!!
