You may have already found a rental, but if not..........
Marlboro has a few rentals right now...and nearby Holmdel has several. The rentals I looked at are looking for longer term, but many may entertain a short term rental. There are many developments in both Marlboro and Holmdel. Colts Neck is an option, too.
I am from CA, so I am curious where you are coming from in CA., I lived in South Ca, but spent a lot of time working in the Bay area, too.
I live on the Jersey shore.....where an option for NYC commuting is via ferry. From Marlboro, one can travel by bus, train, or drive. The same options exist closer to the shore, plus the option of the ferry.
