'BEACH HAVEN BELLE' ULTIMATE DESIGNER BEACH HOUSE

Beach Haven Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Spacious Open Plan Victorian - 5 Bedrooms 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

Coastal Living meets Cote Ouest: Located in Beach Haven’s lovely Historic District, a block to the beach and a quick stroll to all restaurants and shops, Beach Haven Belle is the ultimate beach house and is custom furnished by a local designer. Completed in July 2012 and rented on a weekly basis for the first time, this finest quality renovation/build combination is tastefully executed in keeping with the period of its neighboring Victorian Grande Dames.

Untouched by Hurricane Sandy, the house resides in the most elevated and protected part of Beach Haven. The unique seashore treasure marries traditional and contemporary in a warm open plan that accommodates an extended family sharing in five spacious bedrooms and two distinct and spacious living spaces that flow seamlessly to the outdoor garden “room” behind the house. Three full baths, an open-plan kitchen, laundry room, outdoor bathhouse, and a detached garage complete this old-style beach house custom built for the most discerning of contemporary beachcombers.

Reclaimed wood plank walls, aged zinc counters, 100-year-old barn wood scraped red oak floors, an Aga gas range, retro light fixtures, and a sailboat and lighthouse bunk bed for kids combine to make this truly a one of a kind designer-built gem.

It has a full front porch, all new baths, custom cabinetry made from reclaimed wood and all new appointments hand-picked by the designer. Vintage restored original furniture pieces were collected from antique dealers in Hudson, New York and up and down the East Coast.

In the kitchen, plank walls stained and painted to simulate driftwood, period-style moldings, interior restored windows with original mullions came from a Virginia Farmhouse and traditional mullion, Dade-County-rated storm windows and glass doors are throughout the rest of the house, custom wooden cabinetry and a nautical staircase with semi-open risers were made by local artisans. The best of old and new typifies this stormproof beauty that is the perfect beach home for a large family or for those hoping to make memories with visiting extended family or friends.

Caroline Lechaux by email purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Caroline Lechaux by email chose Beach Haven

My husband grew up vacationing on Long Beach Island. He was a lifeguard on the island for seven years as a young man. When we married, I passed the 'causeway test', what every potential wife or husband has to go through before wedding. I fell in love with LBI and decided to renovate and work on the island doing beach house design.

What makes this cottage unique

I love the beautiful views, amazing beach and access to all he town has to offer by foot. I especially love that Pearl Street Market is around the corner. It's a great place for socializing. The beach up the street is one of the nicest you an find on the East Coast.

Cozy and Comfortable with Character

  • 5 of 5
stayed at the beach haven belle with two families (each having 3 children), so in total 6 kids under 6 years old! yes, we are adventurous, but the house made it easy with lots of beds/bedrooms and a massive television hooked up with cable and wifi. we rented two cribs from a local store, and everyone else stayed in beds since there are lots of options, including twins and largers. we arrived to a house with lots of the little necessities, like washing machine and dishwasher detergent and then we went to murphy's (only a couple blocks away) for anything else, including groceries. and we got lunch for the adults at pearl street market almost every day (so close!). went to fantasy island twice, played mini golf, went to the arcade, went to the local concert a clock away (wednesday nights)....everything so close and easy. beach badges waiting for us at the house too.

Great House for Family Fun

  • 5 of 5
We loved this house. Bedrooms were beautiful with multiple common areas perfect for family fun. 3 generations - grandparents, parents & kids aged 4 to 8, all enjoyed. The location was perfect - easy walk to beach, mini golf, restaurants. Historic location brought lots of added fun - craft fair, free concerts, theatre. Though, as usual, hands down favorite wound up being something simple - the outdoor shower - it rocked. Thanks for a great week. Look forward to returning.

Amazing vacation house

  • 5 of 5
We had an absolutely wonderful week at this beautiful beach house. The house is gorgeous and a great setting for an unforgettable weekend in Beach Haven. The design and layout really have to be seen to be appreciated with all of the close attention to detail. The convenience of this location is also incredible. We did not use our car the entire week, as it is an easy and short walk to the beach, grocery store, restaurants, cafe, shops. We are already thinking about coming back next year! Definitely made my wife's 30th birthday unforgettable.

Heaven in Beach Haven!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I just got home from a wonderful, cozy Thanksgiving spend in this gorgeous home. This home is decorated beautifully and is impreccably maintained. It is comfortable and spacious. The location is perfect - once we got there, we didn't touch our car again - we could walk a block to the beach or a block in the other direction to town/restaurants/adorable shops, etc. The owner was wonderful to work with, and was committed to being sure we were happy and that all of our questions were answered. It was our family of 5 and my sister in laws family of 5 - so a total of 10 slept very comfortably. The kids loved the lighthouse room and the nautical room where the beds were hanging from ropes! My husband and I felt like we were in heaven in the master. the good news was that my sister in law and her husband also had a king sized bed, so we didn't feel bad 'taking 'the king! This was a vacation that will not soon be forgotten - we can't wait to go back and visit again!
