LBI is a premier destination for summer vacationing, known for its white sand beaches, restaurants, boutique shopping, water sports, amusement parks, miniature golf, and crabbing. Under 2 hours from metro NY, N. NJ, Philly. LBI has been almost fully restored after Hurricane Sandy, back to business as usual in most places. The north end, where we are located, looks as if nothing ever happened! LBI still has 'IT'!
Private Beach, Ocean and Bay Views: This home has multiple views of the ocean and the bay too; it takes full advantage of the views with multiple decks: large dining area deck with grill & views of the ocean, private covered deck off Master BR, private deck off 1st floor Master BR, shared deck for den and southeast bedroom, and a spacious roof deck with spectacular sunset and sunrise views! The home has some features which comply w/ ADA- the elevator and faucets are easy to use, the doorways are wide enough for wheelchairs, and the open spaces and smooth flooring make it easy for someone using a wheelchair manually or motorized. Even the master shower makes it possible for one to be wheeled inside.
The beach is restricted to residents/renters on the adjoining blocks; there is no public access. This allows you to enjoy peaceful tranquility just 200 feet away! There are no vendors or restaurants on the beach-- just unspoiled white sand with ocean waves breaking nearby. You are permitted to picnic on the beach; trash containers are at each entrance/exit. Lifeguards are posted in the area for supervised safe swimming; we provide beach badges, toys & chairs.
We offer a fully turn-key operation at this chic new home. We've thought of everything to make your vacation just that-- a vacation! We include numerous amenities in the house, so that you spend less time shopping and dragging supplies there. The elevator makes moving luggage and groceries SO much easier! The huge pantry provides terrific shelving for extra food and drinks. What else will make your life easier? Read on!
When you arrive, the house has just been cleaned... smell the scent of sparkling rooms. Load your suitcases into the elevator, conveniently located on the ground floor, and drop them off at the 1st or 2nd floors. Reload with your groceries and repeat!
The 1st floor wet bar in the den has a mini frig for drinks and snacks - we use it for the kids since there are plastic cups in those cabinets, plus there are board and card games and a TV with DVD player in the den, which helps entertain them while you get the house together- if they're not exploring outside on the beach already!
The wet bar w/ beverage frig in the upstairs living room is equipped with an ice bucket, shakers, pitchers, martini and wine glasses and a couple of margarita glasses too! You may find extra glasses in the cabinets or pantry. Take advantage of the views, dock your iPod in the stereo, and open the sliding doors to see the waves, hear the roar of the ocean and smell the salt water...
Walk to the kitchen and take a quick inventory...under the sinks are various cleaning items, dish soap, and dishwasher detergent, and the pantry has sponges, trash bags, recycling containers, serving platters & bowls and a lobster pot. Salt, pepper, garlic powder, coffee filters, sugar, and plastic wrap are available as well.
Each bathroom has bath towels, tissues, toilet tissue, soap, shampoo and conditioner, and cleaning wipes for sink, countertop, etc.
The ground floor powder room has a locking entrance from the outside shower, so that when you return from the beach you can shower outside, use your house key to get into the powder room, and throw your wet bathing suit and beach towels into the washer/dryer. Plus there's a bench to sit down while you dress, and hooks to hang personal items. There are a couple of baskets on the ground floor into which you can toss sandals and shoes- so the sand won't get dragged up through the house.
Guests waiting to use the outside shower can relax in the comfy chairs on the covered patio w/ ceiling fan. Once they've showered, they can wait inside the house in the patio room to relax or watch TV. It's a nice, open, cool space.

1. Black Master Suite w/ King bed w/ walk-in closet and en-suite double sink bath w/ shower, sliders to private balcony facing ocean, TV/DVD, large dresser, nightstand, hair dryer.

Walk from the bedroom through sliders to see the sunrise from the covered deck, or just relax in the love seat inside. It's a true oasis.
The ground floor is a great place to relax away from the sun, and the covered patio and powder room are just a few steps away.

Trustworthy, hard-working, dependable. Born, raised and educated in NJ (B.S. in Biology from Seton Hall, and an M.A. in Education from Montclair State). First generation American (my parents were born in Europe) married to a C.P.A. living in Morris County, NJ.
My parents had a summer place in Beach Haven, and my mom now lives in Barnegat Light, so my siblings and I grew up spending our summers on LBI body surfing, clamming, biking, walking, going to Fantasy Island and Bay Village, playing mini golf, fishing, and shopping at the many clothing and antique stores.
You can trust me to do whatever I promise to do, and to be available when you need me. I am a customer- focused person who enjoys meeting new tenants-- after spending 20 years in a Fortune 500 healthcare company focused on sales and marketing, it's a pure delight to meet and service new clients again.
WE ARE TURN-KEY AND IN THE BEST LOCATION ON LBI.
North Beach, one of the quietest towns on LBI, is within walking distance to Harvey Cedars' Sunset Park and Surf City's restaurants and shops. Our home is a mere 200 feet from the beach AND has many handcrafted features.
My husband and I custom-built this chic home in 2008 and enjoy sharing it with families like yours. Our home is completely custom built, immaculate, spacious, beautifully furnished, and extraordinarily well-maintained. We are the 2nd house from the beach and offer outdoor living space on our five decks, covered patio (great for rainy days) and outdoor areas- a 100' by 100' double lot with room to run around outside or relax inside.
We stand apart from other properties because we provide many extras and amenities to make your life easier. There are 7 TV's in the house, including HD boxes, one DVR box, premium cable, and DVD players. Bath towels, dish towels, and bed linens (sheets) are just the beginning... you'll have the use of everything we use ourselves when we're at the house- from things you can't do without (SONY Stereo w/ iDock, toilet tissue, shampoo, conditioner, trash bags) to the little things, like DVD's, decks of playing cards, board games, rubber bands, note paper, pens, pencils, etc.
We have local resources available to help in a pinch: my mom is 10 minutes away, our handyman is available 24 x 7, and we have contracted with plumbers, electricians, and other contractors to be available when we need them.
Lastly, the house was 5 years old in August 2013, so it's a young house used primarily in the summer months-- in pristine condition-- ready for your visit! We regularly visit the house to maintain it and supervise the cleaning process to ensure you are greeted by an immaculate place when you arrive. Only the best for our guests!
THE OWNERS: When you rent this home, you have the benefit of my husband Sal and me (Sue)! We're responsive and informative ... we send out a handbook with information about the house as well as restaurants, shopping, activities, and resources. The house is stocked with many items for use during your stay, so there's less for you to bring from home.
PRIVACY: The house is only 200 feet from the private beach-- we are the 2nd off the beach-- which is only used by homes on the same tract (block)-- so there is no public access to the beach. The house has no neighbor on the west side, and the east neighbor is the guest house for the oceanfront home.
SPACE: The outdoor space is a wide open double lot- 100' x 100'-- allowing kids to run around and expend their energy! The interior of the house is spacious and open and has a living room, a den, and a family room to allow everyone to spread out and get away when you need a little privacy or to watch the game. The bedrooms are large, with three of them having comfortable seats for reading.
SAFETY: The railings around the decks all meet or exceed minimum requirements for protecting children. The west side of the house is protected by landscaping to prevent children from running into the street. Heating and electrical inspections were completed in December 2012 after Superstorm Sandy.
PARKING: There's ample parking available in the 3 car garage and on our large paver driveway.
DECKS: The roof deck provides 360 degree views of the ocean and bay and is a great place to watch sunrises and sunsets! There are 4 other decks in the house. The most widely used deck off the second floor kitchen/dining/living room has a table and chairs for dining with ocean views! The Master deck (2nd floor) is private and features an attractive overhang. The Master (1st floor) deck is balcony size, perfect to sit and read while listening to the ocean. The airy first floor south deck has access to the den and the cherry bedroom.
