Relaxing beach retreat, 200 feet from the beach. Painstakingly restored beach cottage with all the modern amenities. Front porch to people watch, and private covered rear porch with a table for 8. Fun loft for kids to hang out and even hook up a game system. Wonderful cedar outdoor shower to wash away the sand, and get ready for a night out to dinner at one of dozens of great restaurants. Spend your days on the beach, walking the boardwalk, fishing, or kayaking. Mansquan is the consumate family beach town, with its cute downtown shopping area, family beaches and abundant dining & nightlife.
This is the best family beach north of LBI, and the best, most comfortable house you will rent.
You will never want to leave!

Tracey & I have two kids who have grown up renting summer houses with us. We all love the beach - it is a year-round discussion at our house - 'when are we going to the beach', who are we inviting'... 'Can we get a surfing lesson?', 'let's go to that miniature golf place', 'I want to eat at the Warfside'... We love the beach, and invite you to enjoy your vacation at our home.
Mike & Tracey purchased this cottage in 2003
We were looking for a house in LBI, but realized it was too far for a weekend getaway. Tracey & I spent a long weekend at the shore, seeing houses for sale all the way from Seaside to Sea Bright. We fell in love with this charming town and the family atmorphere.
So close to the beach that you will come back to the house instead of buying a drink at the burger shack, and can run back instead of using the public restroom. Perfectly restored cottage gives you comfort and convenience. Most of our guests tell us 'you've thought of EVERYTHING'
We loved staying here! The house was very clean and the layout was terrific. It's so close to the beach and a playground which was wonderful for my two small kids. They also loved the loft feature. We would certainly stay here again. Mike was very responsive and the whole stay was just so relaxing!
We just completed our ninth summer vacation week at 108 2nd Ave. it is always difficult to leave and this year was no exception. Mike and Tracey are hands on hosts. Our little home has all the character of a beach bungalow from our Manasquan childhood but with 21st century amenities. Proximity to the ocean at Sea Watch makes it easy to view the sunrise and go back and forth to the beach for lunch and then again "happy hour" for our favorite time of the day. Manasquan is a magical place, a slice of life that all five of us anticipate every August.
Mom has been joining us each year and at 86, she needs a little help getting on the beach. We always find a willing volunteer to roll her down the path in a beach wheelchair. It's not just the place, it's the people we love.
Do you like to cook? No problem all the essentials including giant grill are available. Want to teach the kids to play cards, board games? Great big table on the back porch is the best gathering place of all.
Kids will love the kiddie loft that is their own private getaway.
Clean, clean, clean! If you MUST, wireless internet helps you connect with the office but if you can, disconnect and go experience all Manasquan and its neighboring towns have to offer.
This years agenda included spa at Sensabilities in Sea Girt, concert at Tim McGloones in Asbury Park, daily walk on the boardwalk, lunch truck at Sea Watch and lots of laughs and memories. We are going back again for our tenth season next summer.
Try it, you'll love it!
This cottage is newly (and tastefully) updated and very comfortable. The owners are very accommodating. It's a short walk to the beach and two beach passes are included in the rental. The separate front and back porches provide plenty of space. The outdoor shower even has little dispensers with shampoo, conditioner and body wash. It is less than a mile from town and an easy walk. Thanks again, Mike and Tracey, for a great week.
This was my third year at this owner's rental. I don't have to say too much more...three years renting says it all. Started out renting the last week in June, 2015 season rented the last two weeks. I just love it. Its quaint & cozy, equipped with all your needs - I even went home with my wash done. How great is that?! The proximity to everything Manasquan has to offer is great; and walkable/bikeable. I never move my car once I get there. Back home a week and oh I miss the layout of that cute little place. Perfect, perfect, perfect.
This house is just fantastic. It's as cute and comfortable as it is in the pictures and its proximity to the beach was way closer than I was expecting. Also, to my surprise, the beach entrance that is closest has an enormous playground right on the sand that was great for the kids. We had an absolutely amazing time in this home. Enjoy!
Our stay in Manasquan beach cottage was wonderful! We spent the entire month of April there enjoying every day. The location of the beach cottage in only 1 block from the beach, right in front of a playground and bathroom facilities. House was clean, organized, and had equipped with all the right stuff...beach chairs, cozy beds, front screened in porch and covered back deck for outside dining with great furniture. Owner was very nice and is dedicated to your stay at his home. Will be back and recommend this cottage to anyone!
