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.

Fabulous Old-timey New Jersey Shore Experience

  • 5 of 5
Our family spent a wonderful week at this house (front only) and enjoyed every minute. #1 is access to a fantastic beach--uncrowded, gentle slope into the surf, and beautiful. Neighborhood was extremely quiet. The house itself is perfect for those who miss the old Jersey Shore and the feeling that real people have lived in and loved the space. Appreciated all the conveniences and nice touches (reading lamps, adequate outlets, fans, plentiful seating, good shower, etc.) My near-90 year old mother did well in her own small bedroom with bath that is off kitchen, and the rest of the family and friends had plenty of room to spread out around the house. Thank you so much for a great time!

Owner's Response: Meg-

Thank you for your kind words. We are glad you enjoyed your vacation. I love that you noted the shower, I just re-did it before the season. I am glad your near 90 year mother was able to enjoy the house and short walk to the beach as well. Some of my aunts and uncles can't climb a flight of steps, so having a bedroom and bathroom on the 1st floor make the house accessible for them.

Quaint beach cottage, a great family get away with close access to almost private beach

  • 4 of 5
My family of 10 stayed at this beach house for a week in the middle of July. What a great time that was had by all. The house is a quaint, older beach house with an attached guest house that has two bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen, and living area. The main house has four bedrooms, a sleeper on the porch (which is great for napping with the sound of the ocean in the background), two bathrooms, a living area, kitchen, and dinning room. The house is a bit on the smaller side for 10-12 people, but a majority of your time is spent outside. The house was great for what we needed which was a place to lay our heads at night and make food. The house is right next to the beach with an easy walk. It was great to be able to return to the house for bathroom breaks and food breaks then being able to go right back to the beach. The house is in a quiet neighborhood. At night the only thing you hear is the sound of the waves crashing upon to shore line. The house is near a wonderful little market with fresh foods made to order and groceries. There is also an ice cream spot, grill, cafe, and liquor store all within walking distance. It is about a 15-20 min drive to Beach Haven and Fantasy Island. It was a perfect spot for a family vacation.

Nothing more relaxing and soothing than a house on the beach

  • 5 of 5
Our family and friends stayed at Sea Foam in LBI this summer while my extended family rented the detached snuggled next door cottage home together with us. We had a perfect week together. Life can be busy, hectic, and crazy with 3 children 1 preteen and 2 teens and this is exactly what we needed. The home was comfortable, clean, and had all that any family could need. The location was few houses away from the beach with safe and easy beach access to a private and uncrowded, gorgeous beach; fully lifeguarded. Since our family loves to surf, fish, and basically spend the week as beach bums, this was exactly right for us. All that we needed was walking distance making it very simple to park your car and use your bicycles or a free shuttle anywhwere you wanted to go on LBI. For teenagers who aren't driving yet, they had the freedom they wanted to meet up with friends, shop, or check out Fantasy Island and Pier Village if they wanted without relying on mom and dad to taxi them all over. It was a mom taxi is off duty dream come true : ). A bike ride to Barnaget Light is a family tradition which we could fulfill from this little slice of Heaven location. We enjoyed being in Harvey Cedars in LBI and our relationship here will be a long and wonderful one for family vacations in years to come. See you next summer Sea Foam. Can't Wait!

  • 5 of 5
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.

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.
