Overview

Beach Haven House Rental Photos and Description

Original 1951 Cape Cod- 4 BRs, 2 B, sleeps 10; Can't get closer to the beach!

FRIDAY TO FRIDAY Rental - BEACH FRONT

ThIs third year after Hurricane Sandy and we continue feel very fortunate to be among the homes that still remain just as it was 60 years ago! Our entire beach house is pine paneled in the original 1951 paneling. Warm and cozy- this house is special.

This year we've added a large first floor deck with a sliding door, doubling the size of the first floor living space. This allows a great traffic pattern, outdoor seating area and dining area with umbrellas.

The sights and sounds of the Atlantic Ocean are with you every minute of the day and night. This wonderful Cape is on great family street in Haven Beach, Long Beach Island, 2 miles N of the town of Beach Haven. There are spectacular panoramic views from rooms on the 2nd floor. 1st floor views are obstructed by the big old dune, that saved us from the ravages of Sandy.

FIRST FLOOR:

Living Room, Dining Room, a fully equipped, updated this year, kitchen, a back porch, laundry, 2 BRs- one ocean side with new queen bed, the other a comfortable bunk room with new mattresses and a 1st floor full bath. AC units are in all bedrooms, stored in each closet but rarely used.

Our new deck is the length of the house, on the ocean side, has a new double sliding door from the LR and literally doubles the size of the living space on the 1st floor. Offering comfortable seating and a large dining table. Another wonderful place to enjoy the ocean breezes and sounds. Great too, for sunbathing, baby pools or for entertaining anytime.

SECOND FLOOR:

Master Bedroom w newly raised open ceiling, an upstairs Den that seats 8 comfortably, twin beds in alcove and a 2nd floor full bath, all with outstanding views and breezes. There is a 2nd floor deck is off the Den also with dining and seating areas. It's THE place to be overlooking the Atlantic, for morning coffee or for afternoon/evening glass of wine watching the sun set over the bay.

There's two side yards, one for drying all beach towels and clothes; the other for yard is good for games. Three flat screen TVs, wireless Internet access, there's a fabulous new outside 'in the sun' shower- the best after beach!! A washer/dryer, new ceiling fans, new dishwasher, new refrigerator and new gas grill on far end of from deck. Everything you need and more.

What is the cost of a 5 star hotel on the beach per night? Compare that to this original 1950's 'step back in time' fully equipped home only 80 yards from the ocean!

Last Note! Life Guards are right in front of our house!

If interested in Fall or Spring weekends- they are available at $700 per night, minimum 3 nights and the price is non-negotiable.

Additionally, no college/high school age people may rent.

About Lindsay Thayer Stroker

The Stroker family has rented on LBI in the same family neighborhood for 60 years. Jack and I purchased this charming beach cottage 14 years ago.

Now, we have two grand babies and hope they love it as much as we do!

Lindsay Thayer Stroker purchased this house in 2000

Why Lindsay Thayer Stroker chose Beach Haven

To our knowledge there is no other original, (updated with very comfortable furniture and great mattresses) 'beach front' property available on the island.

This truly is a step back into the 50's on LBI.

Sitting on the beach!

We loved this little house on the beach. Priceless location, priceless views, and the Owners were so easy to deal with. Barely wore shoes for a week!

Terrific beach house

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to LBI for many years and have always looked forward to staying at this house. It has tremendous beach and sunset views, is very well appointed and you can't find a better location. In addition, we've spent many great nights enjoying the upstairs deck. Looking forward to another great vacation in 2014!

Now this is a REAL jersey shore home

  • 5 of 5

This rental was everything it said it was and more.It was clean,yet we were comfortable,not nervous about having young children break something. the decor is charming and the views are spectacular. There were many nice restaurants,and more casual fare. The grandchildren loved Fantasy Island. There was a small issue with the plumbing that the caretaker took care of immediately.

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with our family.

Map

Nearest Airport
60 Miles
PHLLY and NEWARK 90 mi.
Car: recommended

Long Beach Island is throw back to the 1950's...not the typical 'Jersey Shore' as there are no fast food chains, no high rises, no spring-breakers. It's a 'Family Island' with emphasis on BEACH fun but with loads of family entertainment; Bay Village, a family amusement park, water slide park, shopping, Long Beach Island Museum, fishing, crabbing, bike riding, boating, para sailing, surf shops, boutiques, art festivals and several antique shops ...and a safe haven away from everyday life. There are great restaurants with a selection of Italian, French, Japanese and many terrific seafood restaurants. Kids are welcome everywhere. A couple blocks away is a popular LBI watering hole, Nardi's, serving breakfast, lunch and light diners (take out too!) and has great 70's & 80's live music every weekend.

Being ON the ocean, 100 yards away out the front door, in a comfortable and charming home ....makes your visit very special, very memorable.

Notes:
As former renters for over 30 years we now have our own home to offer people as their vacation home! Historically on LBI, tenants bring their own bed linens, towels, and food supplies. Upon your arrival there will be basic supplies (spices, tp, paper towels, etc.) that allows you to get through the first couple days. (If linens are needed they are available at a minimum charge.) It is very unusual to have an original 1950's home on the ocean. Most older, ocean front homes have been torn down and replaced by very large homes, with very high rental rates-if they rent. This is a charming, pine paneled 1951 Cape with very comfortable furnishings, definitely, one of a kind! It is perfect for a fun and memorable family vacation. We have a house caretaker on hand to fix any problems that may occur. We have cable TV and high speed wireless internet.
