Grill Rentals

From time to time we get asked about whether we rent grills.  Our vacationers come to the beach to enjoy some fun in the sun and also to enjoy time with their families. A grill will more thank likely be listed in the amenities section of your rental contract, but in most cases, they are not available for renters.

Whether it be grilling burgers, steaks or hotdogs, we know how grilling is a part of a Jersey Shore vacation so we gave it some thought... We've researched rental providers in the area, considered insurance costs to carry and checked out costs to purchase.

All things considered, we actually recommend buying a grill for your week at the shore instead of renting one.  Costs are approximately the same to rent as they would be to buy.   Contact us for suggestions on where to purchase. Most local hardware stores, like Wallace Hardware in Ocean City, carry grills.   Alternatively,  you can purchase a basic model from Amazon.Click here.

If you know of a grill rental provider with great rates, please let us know!

Just remember to check your lease to make sure grills are allowed at your rental.

DMB Caravan- Take the Whole Week off and Stay At The Beach

With musicians starting to announce their Summer tours, we know that Summer is just around the corner.  We are looking forward to catching a few shows in AC, at the Garden State Art Center (yeah I know its not called that anymore) and at the Camden Waterfront.  We are particularly excited for the DMB Caravan at Bader Field in Atlantic City.

The Caravan is 3 fun filled days of music from many artists including:
Dave Matthews Band
David Gray
Ray Lamontagne
The Flaming Lips
Thievery Corporation (Been listening since their DC only days)
Dr. Dog (A Philly Favorite)
Michael Franti and Spearhead (Yeah!)

The venue is a short distance to many shore towns including Brigantine, Ventnor, Margate and Ocean City.  We hope concert goers will extend their time in the area by taking the week off and vacationing at nearby shore towns.

In the spirit of the concert, we are happy to offer concert goers $10 off any rental orders with coupon code "DMBCARAVAN" ($100 minimum order).   We hope fans will check into a vacation rental for the week, kick back and relax instead of having to worry about bringing their linens, towels, beach gear, etc.     To make a reservation, visit
