3 Bedroom Rental In Lavallette NJ on a Lagoon

Our 2018 Rates & Availability are up-to-date and weeks are already going fast! Please scroll down to check or use the instant quote feature on the right side of the screen!

Welcome to our beach home, Casita del Mar ("Little House by the Sea"). Our home was completely renovated in 2013 and is awaiting your arrival in Lavallette, one of the most family friendly towns on the entire Jersey Shore! Our property sits on a lagoon off of Barnaget Bay and has great outdoor space as well as a screened-in porch with a table for dining as you watch the boats cruise by. The lagoon is perfect for docking your own watercraft (up to 26'), kayaks, rafts, or swimming. And don't forget to try your hand at crabbing with some of our included crab traps from the floating dock!

Our home features an open kitchen/living room layout with all modern kitchen amenities and is well stocked for all your vacation needs. Our home has 3 bedrooms (Queen beds) and the living room has a fold out queen couch as well for a perfect getaway for a family or a group of friends. There are flat-screen TVs in every bedroom and the living room, and we include cable and wireless internet along with a complimentary Netflix account.

Central A/C & heat, a full size washer/dryer unit, an outdoor propane grill, and an outdoor shower make your vacation at our home as easy as it should be. We’re just a quick walk to the beach, a children’s playground, ice cream, bakery, seafood market, and a liquor store and a few minutes from downtown Lavallette.

Our beach is wide and unspoiled with water temperatures averaging 75 in July & August, with a near daily afternoon on-shore breeze to make even the hottest days feel amazing. If you or the kids get tired of the ocean, just take a quick walk back to the Bay Beach for even warmer water to swim in and a modern playground to enjoy. And it is great in the spring and fall as well, with swimming in the ocean still pleasurable through the middle of October.

Feel free to reach out with any questions. Both of us have enjoyed the Jersey Shore for our entire lives and we’d love for you to experience our version of the “beach dream!'

About David Frank

This home is listed by David and Kristen Frank. Both NJ natives, the couple has been visiting the Jersey Shore all of their lives and even got married on the beach in Lavallette just a few minutes walk from this home! We strive to make our tenants feel like they are at home and are always accessible if anything should need attention during your stay.

David Frank purchased this house in 2014

Why David Frank chose Ocean Beach I

Bayside on the water and five minutes walk from some of the best beaches on the Jersey Shore. The playground at the beautiful Bay Beach provides a perfect alternative for days when it is too rough or windy at the ocean.

We have wanted to own a home at the Jersey Shore as far back as we can remember. In the post-Sandy world things are changing quickly at the Shore and we felt that now was the time to buy. As such, this home is not just a rental to us but is a culmination of our lifelong dreams. We hope that you will love it as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

Water access, with a private swim ladder and space to dock a boat or other watercraft. Unlike many other areas nearby, there is a great sized yard and plenty of privacy from neighbors. Our home is also at ground level, which is becoming a rarity on the post-Sandy Shore.

Pack'N'Play & High Chair available upon request.

Great little place in an awesome location

  • 5 of 5

Property is situated about a 2-3 minute walk from the bay (beachfront available for swimming/playing) and 5-6 minute walk from the ocean. My wife and I stayed here with our 11 month old and my brother and we had a fantastic time. The bay was a perfect calm place for our little one to splash and play. The seas were a bit rough in the ocean (tropical storm off the coast) but normally the beach there is fantastic - great fine sand and friendly people. Overall, the property had everything we needed - functional kitchen with good appliances, good cookware/cutlery/plates, indoor and outdoor showers, screened in porch for lounging after hours without worrying about mosquitoes, and friendly neighbors.

Nitpicky thing - if you like firm pillows, bring your own.

Other than that, can't recommend enough! We will definitely be back!

Wonderful please to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! The house was so comfortable and cute. All of the neighbors were extremely nice. My little boy enjoyed feeding the ducks breakfast each morning and we loved being able to enjoy the water right from the back door. We would definitely recommend this place to family and friends.

Beautiful house and property, immaculate!!!

The outdoor, screened in porch was perfect for those rainy nights as well as family dinners and game nights. The property was huge for everyone to hang out without being on top of each other.

Washer, dryer and dishwasher was a definite bonus!!!!

Quiet street yet close to everything we needed to walk to.

A DEFINITE must rent for families!

We will be going back :-)
