Hi we are moving from Charleston SC to NJ this spring. We are looking for a small house (large dog friendly) to rent with a garage (a lot to ask I know). When I do searches Toms River keeps coming up. Is this area good? Or are there others with cheaper single family homes that you can suggest? We are looking to be about 45 mins or less from the base. Thanks!

Toms river has great and not so great areas.. I would look closer in Mansfield or Chesterfield. Much nicer areas in my opinion.. and a lot closer them Toms River.. Lok here for rental properties. it helped us a few years ago when we moved to the area.

Toms River has good and bad areas like frank said. Also, while it is within 45 minutes of the base, there are plenty of other options that are a lot closer. Are schools an issue for you, or are you only concerned with a single family home with a garage that allows large dogs?

If schools are a concern, then my recommendations would slant that way. If schools aren't a problem you have a lot of choices for housing and the area immediately around the base, while not necessarily the greatest area is full of cheap rentals that would match what you are looking for.

Take a look at a map at the small towns and search each of those. Also, there are areas called "townships" which consist of several towns. You should be able to pull up places like Mount Holly, Lumberton, Vincentown, Southampton, Westhampton, Pemberton, Browns Mills, New Egypt, etc. which are closest to the base and then the towns further out towards Philly and near Trenton.

Depending where on the base or what entrance, Toms River could be well over 45 minutes away. U may want to consider Southampton, Pemberton (where I grew up) or Tabernacle. The military working population is overwhelmingly south and west of the base.
