The future

I spent the day yesterday viewing photos of our beloved jersey shore. Today I can't help but think of the future of the jersey shore. My son, just 5 weeks old, will only know the "new" jersey shore and not the one we all knew. When visiting a town he will never recall a memory of the pre sandy days. I am happy he did enjoy a few walks on the Manasquan beach, a drive to ocean city and the ride home from the hospital through long branch, deal, asbury, belmar, Bradley, spring lake, sea girt to our home in Manasquan.

It is up to us to rebuild so our children can build their own memories of the shore we all love.

I never thought I would have seen pictures as devastating as I did today. My heart aches for the Jersey Shore. From sea bright to cape may, I have enjoyed my time in each town. Manasquan has a special place in my heart as it is my winter home and ocean city as our summer home. As i think about all the Good times ive had i cant Help but think about Our newborn son. He was born in long branch and enjoyed the Manasquan I knew for a month. He will have his fun at the shore someday- a different jersey shore though.
Prayers go out to all those affected.

Hotel Crib Safety

The safest place for a child is in a fully functional, properly assembled crib.

Back in June 2011, all cribs made and sold  must comply with new and improved federal safety standards through the JPMA. The new rules, which apply to full-size and non full-size cribs, do not allow the sale of traditional drop-side rail cribs. 
By December 28, 2012, the new rules also apply to cribs currently in use at places of public accommodation (hotels, motels, B&B,etc.) . At that time these facilities must use only compliant cribs that meet the new federal safety standards. If staying at a hotel and need a crib at the Jersey Shore, please make sure to check with the property to make sure they are compliant.  

Relax Concierge only offers JPMA certified cribs.  Our full size cribs are made by Dream on Me and do not include drop-side rails.  Please contact us to rent a JPMA certified crib during your stay.

Baby monitors

With the recent addition to our family, we definitely like having a baby monitor with us when our little one is not in our arms. This definitely helps us relax instead of wondering what he's up to.

For your next vacation, consider renting our Summer Infant color baby monitors. Visit

Heres another idea. we've also used FaceTime with our iPad and iPhone. All you need are these items and access to a wifi network.

It doesn't get better than this!

We purchased this sign for the office at the start of the summer. We think it is a great reminder to customers to just relax and enjoy your time on vacation with loved ones.

Events, Events, Events

It's amazing to think of all the possibilities our rental items have for events located in NJ and NY. Our customers have rented towels for locker rooms at the met life stadium, baptisms, weekend cabin trips, you name it. We've even received interest in beach chair rentals for wedding ceremonies where chairs would be covered with our white beach towels. How creative!! We will be announcing one of our future events in NYC soon.

This all makes us excited for future events.Anyone planning a toga party?

Favorite bakeries at the shore

One of our favorite things to do is hitting a local bakery at the shore. Whether it be walking, riding our bike to or taking the convertible we like to make a trip to the bakery a small excursion.

Here are our favorite spots:
Scone pony (Spring Lake) - fantabulous crumb cake and fancy pastries
Muellers (Bay Head) - fantabulous crumb cake and cakes
Ferrara's (LBI) - good donuts!
Aversa's (brigantine) - good donuts!
Who's on First (Oc)- best scones at the shore
Browns (Oc) hot donuts. Gotta eat them while you are there.
Mallons (Oc, avalon, stone harbor) - sticky buns

BOB strollers are great!

For summer 2012 we expanded our inventory to include single and double BOB Revolution strollers. With a new addition to our family, we are excited to have a stroller of our own.

The BOB has been great for our walks at the beach on sand and gravel. It's also been great for walking with our dog.

To reserve a BOB for your next vacation, visit Call us if you are interested in buying one.

Last beach day?

Today's forecast call for sunny skies and a high of 80 degrees at the jersey shore. You better believe we will be out on the beach today getting what may be the last perfect beach day until next year. We will definitely be bringing out our chairs, umbrella, beach towels and chaise to enjoy the day!

Special Thank You

A special thank you goes out to our team that managed our orders during September while we were busy planning for the arrival of a new addition to our family.  On September 21st,  we welcomed a baby boy to our hearts.  Everyone has been doing great!

Thank you to Mary, Mark, Mario, Nick, Dawn and Erin for their dedication.  As a female owned small business owner, it was truly important to me that we remained open and continued to provide our customers with our premium rental items and services during this time.   Thank you!
