Book Direct with an Owner on Shore Summer Rentals and Avoid Rental Scams

If it’s too good to be true, it probably is.

That may be the case with other vacation rental sites, but not with Shore Summer Rentals. Online scammers are getting more and more prolific with their fake vacation rental listings, stealing thousands of dollars from unsuspecting victims. All rental platforms, such as Airbnb, VRBO, and even Craigslist, are experiencing rental scams and scrambling to verify the rental properties available on their respective sites.  Continue reading Book Direct with an Owner on Shore Summer Rentals and Avoid Rental Scams

We Love Helping Renters and Owners Save Money: Here’s How We Do It

If you’re thinking about a vacation at the beach but are worried that it may not be in your budget, you’ve come to the right place. Here at Shore Summer Rentals, we are dedicated to providing both our renters and owners with the best possible deals. You can choose beach vacation rentals in Ocean City, Wildwood, Cape May and all of your other favorite New Jersey and Delaware beaches.


The time to wake up with a sunrise view is not over yet! You know you need one last week at the shore before winter weather comes around. As long as the sun is out, the weather is warm, and the boardwalk is lit, we believe you should be at the beach. We’re going to make that more accessible than ever by offering you the lowest prices available — much lower than Airbnb and VRBO, we are talking hundreds, even thousands of dollars in savings.

As a local business, our focus is people. We are not trying to sell you a shore rental, then bombard you with hidden fees. With our competitors, you’ll set a maximum price while browsing, just to see the final bill be twice as large as you had imagined. Those booking fees, service fees, and miscellaneous fees add up pretty quickly. That’s not what we do at Shore Summer Rentals. We don’t charge any hidden costs, allowing our renters to save an average of $655 for a one-week rental.

How Much Can Shore Summer Rentals RENTERS Save?

We’re always fighting to lower the price of renting a shorefront property. That’s why we’re happy to announce that the amendment of the Transient Accommodations Tax law in New Jersey lets us do just that. The modification on this bill does not require private rentals, that meet certain criteria, to charge taxes as of August 9, 2019. Our renters save 25% by not having to pay booking fees or the NJ Shore Tax. How’s that for savings?


Owners, we haven’t forgotten about you. We appreciate you helping our renters enjoy a relaxing beach vacation by giving up your summer home. That’s why we want to make sure we create mutually beneficial deals.

Renting out an unused home is a great way to make some extra money on the side. But why does the extra money always seem to be less than expected? Our competitors profit from their clients through high commissions and hidden fees, lowering the amount of money owners get to take home at the end of the day. We don’t believe in doing that here.

Shore Summer Rentals charges owners a low yearly price and nothing else. Then we hand over full control of email leads and rental transactions to our owners. Our unique business model helps owners save over $3,000 a year. There’s a lot you can do with that money and that really adds up year after year.

How Much Can Shore Summer Rentals OWNERS Save?

Don’t let the fear of high prices, high taxes, and hidden fees scare you away from enjoying a vacation on the beach, with the sun on your face and your toes in the sand. We have beach vacation rentals available from Long Beach Island to Belmar, and even as far as Delaware. We encourage you to browse our rental properties today!

2019 Jersey Shore Independence Day Fireworks Celebrations

For over 200 years, America has been celebrating its independence from British rule with a bang! Well, with fireworks, that is! In fact, the very first Independence Day celebration took place in Philadelphia in 1777, celebrating the one-year anniversary of our newly-formed nation with reverberating bells, crackling bonfires, and dazzling fireworks. Nowadays, the “rockets’ red glare” can be found still lighting up the Philadelphia skyline and making its way up the Jersey Coast for one of the most beloved and anticipated fireworks displays in the country – nay, in the world! 

So, the question is: When can you and your family get a front row seat to NJ fireworks extravaganza on your beach this year? Well, at, your trusted provider of shore vacation rentals in Ocean City, NJ, and along the entire Jersey Shore, we are going to clue you in to the 4th of July schedule from Cape May County to Point Pleasant Beach!

Make Sure You Take Great Photos of Your Listing: Here’s Why

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but when it comes to posting your listing for shore house rentals in Long Beach Island, and all along the Jersey Shore, pictures can be worth thousands of dollars.

That’s because there is a direct correlation between the quality of a listing’s images and the success and final price of a rental rate you can collect. Professional-quality photography can help with every step of the renting-out process:

Your Listing Will Attract More Views.

Across all price tiers, listings with photos taken by experienced photographers “receive an average of 61% more views than their peers.”1

You Can Post a Higher Asking Price.

With professional photographs, you can showcase your listing to its best advantage and ask top-dollar prices. Listings with professional-quality photographs “have a 47% higher asking price per square foot.”2

You’ll Have a Higher Likelihood of a High-Price Sale.

Selling or renting out a home priced above $300,000 can be a challenge, but with professional-quality photographs, you’ll impress potential buyers and renters who are in the market and willing to pay your price.

Find a Renter Faster.

With more views and more interested renters, it’s common sense that professional-quality photos will help you reach a deal more quickly. These listings “secure thousands of dollars more in rental income” than those with photos taken by the owners themselves.4

Hire Someone to Take Your Photos For You.

People are often tempted to take their own photos. They ask the dangerous question, “how hard could it be?”, and figure it’s cheaper to take their own. Then, they find out that taking professional-quality photos is a job for someone with experience. It’s an investment that will pay off.

That doesn’t mean you have to hire an ultra-expensive professional. Even amateurs, as long as they have experience in marketing and interior shooting, can achieve a quality that will make a difference for your listing, especially when these images are enhanced by staging. Staging can include simple tweaks like turning on the lights, rearranging the furniture, and hiding clutter out of sight.5 These seemingly minor actions can make a big difference in adding to the visual appeal of your photos.

The next time you post a listing for beach vacation rentals on LBI (or anywhere else, for that matter), you can be sure to secure the most income for your rental with professional-quality photos.

And when you have a property to rent, be sure to post your listing with Shore Summer Rentals. Contact us today!

Here’s why we recommend booking your next vacation rental with us:

Don’t Pay Hidden Fees

Other companies charge a hefty service fee to both owners and renters (up to 15%!) when you book a rental through their website. You don’t pay those fees at Instead, imagine each of our rental listings as an old-fashioned newspaper ad that you can find online. Owners pay to place their properties on our website, and we won’t charge one more penny to our owners and renters never pay us a dime. That means that you and them have more cash in hand!

Have Confidence in Your Vacation Rental

All of our owners must undergo a thorough verification process to prove that they own any rental properties that they post on our website. To ensure the best possible experience, we also recommend that all renters request references and a list of former renters from the property owner before agreeing to rent. Also, visiting the property in person with the owner is highly recommended.

Speak Directly with the Property Owner

Most of our competitors act as a middleman between you and the owner of your vacation rental. With these companies, it’s possible to never even speak with the owner. Working directly with a property owner can have many benefits, however, ranging from restaurant recommendations to better pricing.
