If you grew up near the Jersey Shore, you probably learned the phrase, "a week at the beach", by age 3. It's a common response given to co-workers and fellow students when they ask what your plans for the summer are.

    This 5 bedroom 5 bathroom home is AMAZING. It sleeps 12, so extended family and friends can come along for your vacation! With the beach directly across the street and the boardwalk not too far. Did we mention it has a ping pong table?

    Atlantic City

    Nothing says beach house more than brightly painted walls. Thats exactly what you'll find in this house! Green, orange, yellow, and blue make up the fun inside this beautiful 4 bedroom 2.5 bathroom home. Sleeping arrangements for 14 mean you don't have to choose who you tell about your rental! Everyone can come and enjoy!

    Stone Harbor

    As the second house from the Stone Harbor beach, why would you look for any other house here? With 8 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms, you better have a lot of friends for this one; it sleeps 32 people! This home has off-street parking for up to 8 cars, so no need to cram your entire posse into one or two cars. Don't worry about beach tags or towels, the owners have you covered. All you need is a will to play in the sand!

    Seaside Heights

    Ever Heard of a Dune Deck? Us either. But this place has one and we're here for it! With hammocks, umbrellas, and beach chairs, it seems like you get the beach effect, but a little further from the water. Not your thing? Keep walking down your private walkway and there is the actual beach. This home has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms spread across 3 floors. It's absolutely beautiful!

    The 6 bedroom 5 bathroom home sits directly next to the beach path in Brigantine. It has a beautiful view of the Wildlife Refuge as well! Sit on one of the three decks and enjoy the sound of waves and New Jersey's animal life all while sipping your morning coffee.
