About Bonnie Todd Marino

Mary and Daryl Todd have owned the Merivale property since their 4 children were youngsters. They grew up on the beaches of Beach Haven and bought the property so their children could experience the same joy and rebirth they did as children. Now that they are grandparents of 12, they love to see their grandchildren picking up the torch for the island and especially for their home on Merivale. There is a special joy that comes with knowing their grandchildren will get out of the car and immediately walk the few steps to the beach and just breath it in. It is the finest gift they can pass on. It is the knowing that they will always be able to return to the shore for healing, growth and revitatlization. Generations of Beach Haven summers go into the beach owners home at Merivale. The house has seen many a storm and stood strong dating back to the 1950's. The owners have a deep respect for the ocean and the beach. Most of all they want to share their love of the sound of the gulls and the surf. They want you to remember the sunrises and take them with you through the winter. The ocean, the beach and their beach house is something they want you to experience and enjoy. In the words of one of the matriarch's of the family. 'What could be nicer.'

Bonnie Todd Marino purchased this condo in 1976

Why Bonnie Todd Marino chose Beach Haven

Merivale Ave. is a lovely street in the southern section of Beach Haven. 220 Merivale is the end of the street, closest home to the beach and the ocean. The owners have owned it since the mid 1980's but it has undergone a complete renovation and update.

The beach slightly to the north is a particularly nice beach for swimming. There are at least 2 full time life guards posted from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Slightly to the south of the property is the surfers beach. Experienced surfers ride the waves and create a beautiful thing to watch. One block away is the Children's Park. Up to date playground equipment is maintaned by the city. This gives a feeling of spaciousness to the street. The ice cream paralor and bike and beach equipment rental is just a block away. On the bay side, there is a wide street parallelling the bay which has spectacular sunsets most nights. That street ends into the local yacht club (LEHYC) where the races are almost non stop during the summer. Racers come from all over the country to compete. The town operates multiple tennis courts for those who want to use them.

The owners grew up or summered on the island and although they have traveled to other places, recognize and love its village atmosphere and consider it a most cherished and special place.

What makes this condo unique

There is a small private fenced in area in front of the decks.

It allows for private beach parties and secure spots for little children to build their castles, play ball or just lie in the sun. A covered porch overlooks it for adults to read, work or use their tablets and know their kids are in sight. It is so easy to rise with the sun and go on a beach treasure walk. It is so nice to have a lobster feast overlooking the ocean and listening to the gulls. You can enjoy a beach party in front of the porch as the sun goes down. The fishermen are a stones throw from the best fishing beaches. The surfers just look one block to the south to check the waves. The swimmers can go one block to the north for a guarded beach.

The bikers can walk to the corner to rent a bike. The children can cross the street and find a lovely well equiped park. The coffee lovers can sip coffee at the Black Dog cafe on the Avenue where they can grab a sandwhich or bring home a $15. lobster feast.

Memorial Day week 2014

  • 5 of 5
This is my family's second time staying at this property, the first being for an extended weekend, the second for a week, since we loved the property so much. The home is right on the beach, which is amazing. No matter which room you go, the view is spectacular and the sound is even more tranquil. My husband and I have pretty stressfull occupations and relished the peacefullness of Beach Haven. However, it is close enough to all the action, restaurants and Fantasy Island for our one year old. Bonnie the owner is great and makes your stay very accomadating and is a pleasure to do buisness with.
Can't wait to go back!

Beach Bliss

  • 5 of 5
This home is truly a piece of paradise, from the minute you walk in and see the sweeping ocean views to the pristine cleanliness of the home. My husband and I work in high stress jobs and love retreating to this home for some much needed relaxation. The kitchen was recently updated providing an open concept which is great for us as we have a toddler. The balcony was wonderful as it provides panoramic views of the ocean and if you are lucky you will see the occasional dolphin swimming by.
Bonnie is so accommodating and is pleasure to do business with. Make this your next rental choice and you will not be disappointed!

Lovely place right on the beach.

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay in the top floor unit overlooking the beach in a quiet neighborhood. The unit was clean and clutter free. The open floor plan was lovely with views to the south as far as the eye could see. We didn't need to go to the beach, as the deck was a wonderful substitute. Bedrooms on the small side with limited closet space. Otherwise, the unit had it all.

New/Old favorite beach

  • 5 of 5
This was my first time to Long Beach Island & my husband's first return after spending childhood summers here in the 60s and 70s. I saw why he so fondly remembers Beach Haven! Not much has changed, it is still A quiet village atmosphere & very family oriented. The location of this home is ideal. On the beach, a few sandy footsteps away from the beach access, no flip flops necessary! Nothing but blue sky, water and sand views out the windows. Clean and bright inside, just as depicted by the friendly and helpful manager/owners. Far enough out of town to be extra quiet, close enough for convenience - 3 minutes by car, 10 minutes by bicycle. Beaches are extra clean, not too crowded, water was beautiful 65 degrees and kids boogie boarded under the watchful eyes of the lifeguards for hours. I have never seen lifeguards who really supervised their area more like a pool than a beach. It was great to have that extra safety! We rented a surfboard and beach cruisers from the "Boardwalk" down the block and shared some of our favorite things about the beach with our kids....unforgettable!

Long Beach Island LBI is a family friendly vacation destination, rated in the top 5 of a National Travel Magazine's Best Beaches in the United States. LBI is six miles from the mainland accessible by one bridge in the center of the island.

If you are looking for a great vacation home rental or off season week(end) to get away with your family and/or friends...this is it! Our high season weeks begin on Saturdays. Low season & off season week(end)s begin on Friday. We may even have off season midweeks available. This smoke free, air-conditioned, heated beachfront vacation home has its own private beach and is steps from the brilliant white beach that Long Beach Island is known for. The tides are known for the bevy of shells that come on shore.

Enjoy yourself in this beachy Beach Haven oceanfront duplex on one of the less crowded beaches on the island and enjoy all the amenities you would expect in a well equipped beach house. This bright and comfortable three bedroom 1.5 bath, duplex is decorated and furnished for beachfront enjoyment with lots of Island accessories. Each floor has a slightly different feel. The second floor has a large, sun-drenched living room with a comfortable sectional and chair that faces the ocean and creates a panoramic view of the beach, ocean and sky. A bank of windows on two sides enhance the ocean views. Ther is a 32' premium cable TV with DVD and secure wireless cable Internet.

Many of our tennents keep menues and provide guidence for those that follow. Rent a kayak, jet-ski or sailboat!

The Maritime Museum on Second St and Dock Rd. has a wide range of programs for young and adults during the summer season. All day fishing and musical entertainment sunet cruises are available on the bay. We do our best to suggest some of the major attractions and reviews that previous guests have enjoyed. For those with a sense of history the Beach Haven Museum is well worth a look see. On the north end of the island Barnegat Light Park is open for viewers and tourists. Beach Haven with its history as a vacation destination long before bridges or railroads could be accessed only by boat or ferry. Back in the day it was worth the trip and many families started traditions that they passed on to their children and grandchildren. They discovered the many secrets of the 'island'. We encourage you to do the same and come along. Maybe 2013 will be your year to see a whale or make a memory that brings you back.
