4 Charming Vrbo Memorial Day Beach Rentals Down the Jersey Shore

With summer right around the corner, these Vrbo beach rentals are perfect for Main Liners looking to get away for Memorial Day.

Let the vacation season begin! With warmer days in full swing around the Main Line, it’s time to start planning for beach rental weekend (or week-long) getaways.

Vrbo, short for vacation rental by owner, has been growing in popularity in the Main Line region and beyond as younger generations look to rent directly from homeowners, rather than dealing with chain inns and seedy motels. For those with extra space to rent out down by the shore, it’s an easy way to make some extra cash during the summer months.

Whether you’re looking for a cozy spot a short drive from the western suburbs or a palatial beach house to fit all the kids and their friends, we’ve got you covered. These rentals are the perfect spots to wash the sand and sun off your body after a hot day relaxing on the beach. Here are some of our top picks for vacation homes available on Memorial Day down at the Jersey Shore.

Ocean Views for the Small Family

This newly renovated duplex is a beautiful spot for a small family in search of a nearby Vrbo stay. Sitting just five houses down from the shore on Long Beach Island, here your morning stroll will take you along the sandy coastline less than a minute from the house.

Step right off the beach and into one of the space’s two indoor showers or single outdoor shower. The brand-new quartz countertop pairs with stainless steel appliances and designer glass tile backsplash in the renovated full kitchen. After cooking a meal, why not open up the sliding glass doors that lead to the spacious deck?

With three bedrooms home to one queen, four twin beds and a sleeper sofa, this beach rental can comfortably sleep six to seven guests. Be sure you’re ready for a long stay, since the owners only accept week-long rental periods from Sunday to Sunday.

Water Lover’s Paradise

A heated pool just eight houses down from the beach couldn’t be any more inviting. This new Vrbo construction in The Dunes just north of Beach Haven is in one of the most coveted neighborhoods of all Long Beach Island.

Featuring over 3,200 square feet of space, five bedrooms (three en-suites), 5.5 bathrooms and eight beds, four of which are queen or larger, you’ll be able to house the whole extended family at this palatial beach home.

A three-stop elevator makes moving in and out easy, and the game room with shuffleboard, foosball and electronic darts will entertain for hours. Two furnished decks make for great sunrise or sunset viewing, perhaps with a cold beer in hand. Afterwards, the 12’x26′ heated saltwater pool is perfect for late-night swims. Again, this property offers week-long rentals only.

Ocean City Special

This Ocean City beachfront property is perfect for shorter trips. Available over Memorial Day weekend from Saturday to Tuesday just a block and a half away from the heart of the boardwalk and the beach, there’s plenty of room for all your guests here.

Between five bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, there’s ample breathing space to avoid getting in your family or friends’ hair. Bath yourself in the warm rays of sunrise or sunset with a gigantic wrap-around deck accessible from both the living room and master suite.

The elevator makes movement easy for grandparents or older aunts and uncles spending the weekend, while the outdoor gas grill is perfect for whipping up a Memorial Day barbecue.

Cape May Town Home Dream

This spot is a dream in pastel. Cape May is known for the vibrant colors of its lively townhomes, and this one is no exception. More reserved than the other Vrbos on this list, the MacKissic Estate features two bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms.

Located at the heart of town, you’re only a short walk from breakfast hotspots, the bustling Cape May boardwalk and the stately grandeur of Congress Hall. Don’t miss treasure hunting at one of the many nearby antique shops or bird watching at the Cape May meadows.

Despite the estate’s recent renovation that’s kept the interior modern and bright, there’s so much to do in and around town you’ll have find yourself wishing for more hours in the day to enjoy the peace of this gorgeous beach home.
