ROOM & RELAXING

Room & Relaxing
  • 5 of 5
House was perfect for us... close to the beach with easy access, spacious, comfortable and had everything we wanted! Kids loved the upstairs tv/gameroom. Very well stocked kitchen and new dining chairs so we could seat all of us around the table. Lots of room for relaxation. Nice large backlyard and there was a lot of competition for swaying in the hammock. Although beach replenishment was going on by the army corp. of engineers, the proximity of the house to the beach made it possible to come and go as many times in the day as needed. So glad for the ample outdoor shower. We were able to watch the sunrise in the morning and the moon in the evening….quiet neighborhood. A lot of house for the rental….so bring all your loved ones for a great time.

BEAUTIFUL HOME!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in this beautiful beach home with my husband and extended family this past July. The house was very clean and roomy - we were able to comfortably fit 7 adults and 3 children. We loved that the house was close to the beach, restaurants, mini-golf, etc (we didn't take the car out all week!). The owners were pleasant to work with. Overall, we had an amazing time and wish we could have stayed longer than one week. I definitely recommend staying in this beach house. Our plan is to do so again next year! :)

RELAXATION AND FAMILY FUN AT ITS BEST!

  • 5 of 5
LBI is like a second home that draws my family back year after year with its ability to refresh, rejuvenate, reconnect and reset. This home delivers this ten times over, and a week’s stay was worth two or more anywhere else. We have enjoyed many different houses on and around LBI over the years, but this one just felt like home.

Easy, welcoming and comfortable from the moment we drove up, we were steps away from the beach. The house has everything down to the board games, lobster crackers and corkscrew.

Being so close to the beach allowed us to enjoy sunrise surfing, invigorating jogs or slow strolls with heads down to find the shells and sea glass that washed up on the overnight tide. Also, the luxury to sleep late, pick up a chair & towel and still find a great spot on either the guarded beach to the right, or to the left to what feels like your own private beach. The outdoor shower is both refreshing & practical.

The Bay, just across the Boulevard, is also a great water destination for fishing, paddle boarding, sailing, and, if you are really adventuresome, jetskiing or parasailing. Of course, there is the leisurely, evening walk to simply watch the yellow, red and orange-tinged sun set peacefully into the Bay.

We took plenty of short walks and found treasures in all directions. Surfside Coffee Shop, Anchor Market, Okie’s Butchers, Boulevard Clams, Rita’s Ices, and Big Dipper Ice Cream.

Great bike riding too. Within a short ride we were able to go to the 5&10, fun art galleries, and too many restaurants to name – although we discovered the Surf City Hotel has night-time entertainment. A longer ride to Barnegat Lighthouse had us passing beautiful homes & the sights at Viking Village.

Fun fueled everyone’s appetites, so the grill got a work out with a steady menu of local, fresh-off-the-boat fish, scallops, clams, steaks, corn & summer vegetables for dinner.

The one cloudy day gave us the chance to drive down to Beach Haven for Thundering Surf water park, Fantasy Island Amusement park, mini golf, and elephant ears at Crust and Crumb Bakery (yum!).

While the house has television and WiFi, neither was used much. After dinner, the kids begged to play the numerous boardgames until they went to bed. After that there was always time for a good bottle of wine, laughing as we recounted the events of the day.

Time to turn in to the gentle sound of the surf. Dreams of doing it all again tomorrow… and next year.

ON THE BEACH

  • 5 of 5
What a fabulous place ! Just a few steps from the beach, this location on LBI is just the best. On a very quiet block and also steps from shopping for kids and adults this is the ideal venue for a getaway for days or weeks. Minimarket, fish store, coffeeshop, italian market, three ice cream shoppes and several restaurants are seconds away.
The house itself is huge and beautiful. Three bedrooms downstairs and a huge living area that can sleep several upstairs - with gorgeous views of the ocean and bay from the several outdoor decks.. Fully air conditioned, nicely furnished and VERY clean.
We're definitely returning to this vacation paradise.

AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5
Best beach vacation ever! There was something for everyone (kids ages 12-17). We could walk or ride to anything that we wanted to do - beach, restaurants, entertainment, and of course ice cream!

The house was spotless and very comfortable, with space for everyone to gather or to have privacy, if needed. The kitchen was well stocked and had everything that we needed to cook (or not!). I really appreciated that the dishes, glasses, and utensils were obviously new. I loved that the gas grill was plumbed into a gas line. There was never a worry of running out of gas, while cooking. The outdoor furniture (on both levels) was plentiful and comfortable.

We loved all of the many games that were provided by the owners. I don't think the TV was ever turned on once while we were there. Good old fashioned fun.

Being just steps from the beach was a huge plus for all. It was no big deal to run back and forth to the house for all of our needs. In addition, the views, and background hum of the ocean from the home was awesome and very relaxing.

I will definitely be renting here again. The owners where easy to work with and very nice. It was perfect.

Map

Location, Location, Location! There are so many activities to do within walking distance of this highly desirable north end Surf City vacation home. The beach is only steps away from the front door while the bay is only a few blocks walk. You will never have to get in you car for any amenities you may need: Grocery shopping, mini golf, arcades, restaurants, take away food, clothing stores, ice-cream, bagels and homemade fudge & taffy. Surfside Coffee House (a local favorite) is just across the street!

Take a quick drive to the north end of the island to see 'Old Barney' the lighthouse or head to the south end of LBI to catch a movie, go to a museum, shop at Schooners Wharf & Bay Village. The kids have a great time at Fantasy Island Amusement Park and Thundering Surf Water Slide & Squirt works. Don't miss the Surflight Theatre or the Show Place ice-cream parlor.
