We all know the song… Summer Loving, had me a blast. Summer Loving, happened so fast… As we head down the beach and sit on the porch of our Jersey Shore rental or lounge in the yard of our beach house, most of us can sing hit song from the musical Grease. We saw the…[Read More]

The summer rental wave is rolling in pretty quickly this winter. I’m giving you an Oprah-like direction – come down and rent your summer house in Point Pleasant Beach, Manasquan or any other Jersey Shore town before you miss out.
