My sister is the best at taking photos of her Relax deliveries.  I love looking at each and every one she sends on a Saturday.

There is something about doing a delivery which is pretty cool. We enjoy both repeat addresses that  we have on our route each week just as much as new properties receiving our services for the first time. We enjoy: admiring the landscaping and/or view, meeting the new or previous tenants, carrying up items to their drop off location or locating the items at pick up time.  Its keeps things interesting!

Being a preteen on vacation at the jersey shore

I had a nice conversation with the gals at Sweet Tease coffee shop yesterday in Manasquan. Somehow we got on the conversation about being a preteen on vacation with our families at the shore. 

I can still remember how much I wish I had a crew of friends like the kids in Ocean City and Stone Harbor. They would hang out in packs having a great time on the boardwalk or in the center of town. As for me, my folks didn't want me to separate from the fam group so it was me and the fam walking by the cool kids.  I did try to look cool but not sure why that mattered. 

Now I'm happy to at least have some of the cool hs kids working for relax... Guess that's as cool as I get. 

Hope all those preteens and early teens had a great time on their jersey shore vacation this summer.

Here are some vacationer tips for you guys:
Bring a friend (if u r lucky enough to have room in the car)
Rock the family thing. Be proud of your family and do funny things: have a pizza or ice cream taste test  at all the boardwalk places
Get everyone zany inexpensive Oc Tshirts and rock it
Do a skee ball marathon
Coordinate a downtown or boardwalk scavenger hunt for the family and Instagram it. 
Enjoy the day time. I had more fun doing things like biking or water sports than just walking around. 

Someday you will look back on your vacation and will miss those days.

Super Bowl is Coming Soon

While the weather may still be in the 70's, there is A LOT of talk and planning for the first ever cold weather Super Bowl on February 2nd.  We are so excited to have been invited as a participant of the Business Connect program.   We are already gearing up for this wonderful opportunity.

Beautiful Playground At The Jersey Shore

We visited a new playground today on the beach in Manasquan.   The former playground was washed away in Hurricane Sandy.   The playground is in memory of Olivia Engel, one of the 26 students from Sandy Hook Elementary School.   The playground was designed with some of Olivia's favorite things: the color purple, butterflies, dragonflies  and being on the water with her family. The project was completed by SquanStrong, a Manasquan nonprofit group that organized relief efforts after the superstorm, and  The Sandy Ground: Where Angels Play. 

I've lived at the beach in Manasquan for several years now. This playground is such a wonderful addition to the community.  It is so nice to see kids playing once again on the beach.  It truly makes you appreciate what you have. 

For more information on the playground, here is an article from the APP.

Summer 2014 Reservations

We definitely already have next summer on our mind. Our summer dates have already been loaded into the system.

 We may have been inspired by our realtor friends posting about their new rental listings for next year. (Nancy Alexander at Remax in Avalon is just one of the realtors posting beautiful places available for the upcoming season.) 

It makes perfect sense to get it all done early. Get your perfect rental for the week you want and get your favorite linens too before the rush. 

We are definitely still accepting off season rentals too and are working out the best way to accept the reservations in our system. For now - either call us or just pick week=other and just enter the dates.

Offseason at the beach

September is a wonderful time at the jersey shore. There are so many great things to do and see. We spent last evening on the beach. Sweatshirt weather, Dj, bonfire and solo cups

Ocean Grove

We couldn't resist a quick stop in Ocean Grove yesterday with the baby. We enjoyed a short walk around town. We didn't do any shopping since I was holding him but we did take some great pictures. The baby even enjoyed his first taste of Nagles ice cream. Blueberry and cream sundae for us!

Ready for Some Football!

We are thrilled to announce we are an approved vendor for Super Bowl XLVIII.  This Super Bowl is the first cold weather Super Bowl hosted in NJ.

We are so ready for the Super Bowl!  Our rental items (e.g. towels) already know the Met Life stadium locker rooms.  We've delivered items there for special events two years in a row.   Our beach equipment is perfect for tailgating! We have beach chairs, coolers, games and more!  

In addition, we expect many homes near the stadium to be available for rental for the event.  We will deliver to your NJ rental home for the event.  Our linen and towel rentals will make your stay more relaxing and enjoyable.   In addition to linens and towels, we offer blankets, pillows, duvets, aerobeds and a wide range of baby equipment (cribs, pack and plays, strollers and more).

Check us out on the official Super Bowl website here.  Call us today to place your reservation. We look forward to working together!

Pack and Play Rental

This is a busy week for our baby equipment rentals. There are plenty of cribs and pack and plays out across the jersey shore. We helped one customer on Saturday with the set up of the pack and play.

These pictures may help others:

Take the pack and play out of the bag and lay on the floor

Lock the sides into position.  It's tempting to push down the center before locking the sides into position. If you do this the sides wont secure.
Push down the center and drop in the pad.  That's it!

Photos from my sisters vacation

My sister just it back from a two week vacation in California.  She had lots of fun in the Cali sunshine. She sent us a few pics from her trip to Catalina. Nope... None of the boat ride, the town or the coast... Just a few of their linen rentals. While I may be always thinking of relax its nice to know my sister is too. 

Catalina- lets talk;)

Saturday Roundup

I can't believe it's almost the end of the prime summer season. We all had a great time today doing deliveries and pickups all over the Jersey Shore. I was happy to be out on the road doing deliveries and pickups too.

Here are some of the photos I took during the day.
