Seafoam has been in our family for four generations. My parents first brought me to LBI in the 1940's when I was 7 and I have been coming back every season since.

2014 will be 20th summer that I have rented the house. We are new to VRBO, only joining in 2013. I respond quickly to email requests about dates and to answer questions about the house.

THOMAS BAILEY purchased this house in 1965

This property is the perfect spot for a quiet family beach vacation. I have enjoyed watching my children and grandchildren playing in the sand and swimming in the ocean. Many cherished family memories have been made at Sea Foam.

While in a quiet neighborhood, our location offers the proximity to many activities families can enjoy: bay beach, mini golf, fishing charters, amusement park, playgrounds, shopping, golf, etc.

Stayed here with my wife, daughter, parents and in-laws. Perfect location for not having to drive all week. Beach, restaurants, liquor store (parents and in-laws!!), and ice cream all within walking distances. Easy to bring my daughter back to house for breaks from the beach. Comfortable sleeping quarters for everyone who came. Perfect yard for grilling after a long day at the beach. Cant wait to go back!

IDEAL BEACH VACATION AT SEA FOAM ... UNFORGETTABLE AND ENJOYABLE

  • 5 of 5
The owners of this home have spared no detail to make your vacation charming, relaxing and fun! The beach is quite literally steps away without having to cross any street and close enough to quickly run back to the house for lunch, bathroom or afternoon naps. You can bike to the Lighthouse, run along the Boulevard or walk to the shops in Harvey Cedars. The house itself is well decorated, clean and feels just like a beach house should. Wine and cheese on the screened-in porch, late night card games, homemade Sunday brunch at the long kitchen table, outdoor showers under the stars, grilling out some burgers and fresh sea food, cozying up with a good book on the beach and watching the sunset across the Bay were all a part of our lovely stay at Seafoam!

WONDERFUL BEACH HOUSE TREASURE

  • 5 of 5
My family has been enjoying this charming beach house for over 2 decades. The house is on the registry for historic beach houses. The owners have made it so inviting and cozy, I feel like I'm relaxing at my own house. The icing on the cake, is that it is steps away from the ocean and a lovely beach. It is on a quiet street away from the hustle and bustle, yet close enough to walk to many shops, resteraunts. We love to ride bikes to Barnegat lighthouse and climb the stairs to the top. What a wonderful view of the island. There are many activities available on the island to make anyone's vacation fun. We have kayaked, para-sailed, treasure hunted , beach combed, fished, clammed and stuffed our faces on the endless bounty of delicacies found on Long Beach Island. I can't begin to thank the hosts for all the wonderful memories we've made at their lovely home.

Owner's Response: Tom and Maryanne-
Thank you for your kind words. We are delighted when guests return to our home. We have many guests who come back year after year and we view that as the highest of compliments. We also have many family reunions at our home. Our home is well designed for groups of 8 to 12. There are plenty of places were everyone can gather as well as other places to escape for some solitude.

KAYLA, FROM WISCONSIN

  • 5 of 5
This quaint near-centenarian cedar shake is a gem in an area of new builds on stilts. It is so close to the beach, no streets to cross while lugging beach toys and towels. Roomy and charming on the inside of the main house, and cozy, comfortable accomodations in the read apartment house. Street-facing sun porch, and upper balcony are great for catching some of the ocean breeze. Loved my stay and would certainly come again.

FABULOUS BEACH GETAWAY WITH LBI'S HISTORIC CHARM

Fabulous Beach Getaway with LBI's Historic Charm
  • 5 of 5
My family has stayed at this Harvey Cedars beach house numerous times over the past 11 years. We have a special place in our hearts for this house, as my husband and I first went there when we began dating. The house continues to maintain the historic charm of a 1920s beach home and every room is comfortable and cozy. One of our favorite rooms in the house is the kitchen, because it has a large table that we can all fit at, whether it's having a meal, playing cards/board games or just chatting the night away. We also love to have cocktail hour out in the yard, while dinner cooks on the grill.

The outdoor shower is an added bonus and always makes me feel miles away from the hustle and bustle of every day life. At night time, we love to leave the windows open in the house, so we can smell and hear the ocean as we drift off to sleep.

Long Beach Island (LBI), in my opinion, is the best place to go on the Jersey shore. I love the Harvey Cedars section, because it is quieter than the more commercialized sections that you see in the mid to southern parts of the island... yet, there is still plenty to do all from this house. You can ride your bike or walk to the lighthouse, walk to both the beach, bay, a kid-friendly park, as well as an ice cream parlor and a few restaurants. I have even kayaked and windsurfed at nearby Sunset Park.

The owners of this home go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and were very easy to work with when making arrangements for our arrival and departure. We can't wait for our next trip to this special gem!

THE PERFECT ESCAPE

  • 5 of 5
This charming, clean, quiet beach house is the perfect way to get away from it all. The spacious layout provides plenty of room for an extended family or couples with children. It's close proximity to the beach and the bay make for an easy vacation. My family and I have enjoyed spending time in this home for years and I would highly recommend it for a vacation rental.
