Thank you for visiting Relax Concierge. It is our goal to make your next vacation to the Jersey Shore similar to a stay at a fine resort.
As a lifelong NJ resident, I spent many summers at the Jersey Shore. My family and friends visited many Jersey Shore towns. We used to brave the Garden State Parkway for day trips to Manasquan and Point Pleasant. When staying for longer, my family used to stay in Stone Harbor and Cape May. When not sitting on the beach, we loved to ride our bikes to the Cape May Lighthouse, visit the zoo and visit the local movie theater. When I was old enough to vacation with friends, we used to head to Long Beach Island. I still remember how fun it was to check out teen nights at the Shell and walk around Bay Village.
Family vacations were a lot of fun but also a lot of work. Preparing for the trip was a lot of work for my mom. She organized everything - from linens to groceries to luggage to beach gear. It was always fun trying to fit everyone in the car with all of our luggage. After arriving, I remember it taking about a day until we were all truly on vacation. After getting home, there was a mountain of laundy and lots of stuff to put away.
After meeting my husband at Loyola College, Pete and I spent our summers at his parents shore house in Ocean City. I remember seeing vacationers arrive every Saturday, just as my family did, with cars loaded with stuff.
Upon graduating, I specialized in business processing reengineering with Accenture. I traveled extensively across the U.S.. I always enjoyed checking out what made each hotel unique. Whether it be for work or pleasure, I love checking out lobbies, sampling toiletries and amenities of the hotels.
After 10 years of consulting, I dreamt that one day we would live at the Shore full time. I hoped that I could bring the hotel experience to vacation rental homes. I took that dream to Wharton's Small Business Development Center to further develop the specifics. From there, Relax was a reality and we've have been enhancing vacations ever since.
Every summer, we've expanded the business. We are always adding more inventory to service more guests, incorporating new product lines per our guest requests and adding new delivery towns. Summer 2020 will be different as we navigate our business through the pandemic. We truly hope for the best and want to hear from our guests as to the best way we can make vacation the most fun and relaxing.
Our 2 kids, Christian and Francesca, are getting big. Christian is now 7 and is really into Minecraft and Star Wars. He enjoys baseball, basketball and freezing cold ice hockey. He's looking forward to lots of time on the Ocean City boardwalk, arcade and camp this summer. Christian loves to play with the Relax Super Soakers when they are not rented. Francesca, 4, loves gymnastics, ballet, and swimming. She is definitely a fish. She is starting to outgrow the baby equipment state which is sad but we love knowing that our guests children will enjoy it. Francesca loves the Relax inflatables so much we had to get her her own.
We hope that our offerings exceed your expectations!
All the best,
