Toms River is a hot spot vacation destination in New Jersey due to its quiet environment, awesome seaside town atmosphere, and all the urban conveniences around. The name Toms River is the same as the river that encounters the Barnegat Bay on the southern border, shaping the peninsula of Dover Beach alongside the Atlantic Ocean. Beyond the sun, sea, and a boardwalk with beautiful views, the city has a vibrant nightlife and many places to enjoy delicious food. Enjoy the breeze, hear the sound of the waves, and feel your feet in the sand while you stay in one of the best Airbnb vacation rentals in Toms River, New Jersey!

1. Lovely home close to the beach (from USD 100)

Just two blocks from the beach (a five-minute walk), this lovely home can be your retreat in Toms River. Your vacation on the coast starts with a sea-themed decoration to set the mood right away. It includes beach towels, beach chairs, beach toys, and a wagon so you can go straight to the beach. Then it passes through the deck with a grill and a picnic table to gather the family and friends for some delicious meals. Bakeries, bagel, and ice cream shops are within walking distance, in case you want to add extra snacks or, maybe a dessert.
