Mary and Daryl Todd have owned the Merivale property since their 4 children were youngsters. They grew up on the beaches of Beach Haven and bought the property so their children could experience the same joy and rebirth they did as children. Now that they are grandparents of 12, they love to see their grandchildren picking up the torch for the island and especially for their home on Merivale. There is a special joy that comes with knowing their grandchildren will get out of the car and immediately walk the few steps to the beach and just breath it in. It is the finest gift they can pass on. It is the knowing that they will always be able to return to the shore for healing, growth and revitatlization. Generations of Beach Haven summers go into the beach owners home at Merivale. The house has seen many a storm and stood strong dating back to the 1950's. The owners have a deep respect for the ocean and the beach. Most of all they want to share their love of the sound of the gulls and the surf. They want you to remember the sunrises and take them with you through the winter. The ocean, the beach and their beach house is something they want you to experience and enjoy. In the words of one of the matriarch's of the family. 'What could be nicer.'

Bonnie Todd Marino purchased this condo in 1976

Merivale Ave. is a lovely street in the southern section of Beach Haven. 220 Merivale is the end of the street, closest home to the beach and the ocean. The owners have owned it since the mid 1980's but it has undergone a complete renovation and update.

The beach slightly to the north is a particularly nice beach for swimming. There are at least 2 full time life guards posted from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Slightly to the south of the property is the surfers beach. Experienced surfers ride the waves and create a beautiful thing to watch. One block away is the Children's Park. Up to date playground equipment is maintaned by the city. This gives a feeling of spaciousness to the street. The ice cream paralor and bike and beach equipment rental is just a block away. On the bay side, there is a wide street parallelling the bay which has spectacular sunsets most nights. That street ends into the local yacht club (LEHYC) where the races are almost non stop during the summer. Racers come from all over the country to compete. The town operates multiple tennis courts for those who want to use them.

The owners grew up or summered on the island and although they have traveled to other places, recognize and love its village atmosphere and consider it a most cherished and special place.

There is a small private fenced in area in front of the decks.

It allows for private beach parties and secure spots for little children to build their castles, play ball or just lie in the sun. A covered porch overlooks it for adults to read, work or use their tablets and know their kids are in sight. It is so easy to rise with the sun and go on a beach treasure walk. It is so nice to have a lobster feast overlooking the ocean and listening to the gulls. You can enjoy a beach party in front of the porch as the sun goes down. The fishermen are a stones throw from the best fishing beaches. The surfers just look one block to the south to check the waves. The swimmers can go one block to the north for a guarded beach.

The bikers can walk to the corner to rent a bike. The children can cross the street and find a lovely well equiped park. The coffee lovers can sip coffee at the Black Dog cafe on the Avenue where they can grab a sandwhich or bring home a $15. lobster feast.

This was my first time to Long Beach Island & my husband's first return after spending childhood summers here in the 60s and 70s. I saw why he so fondly remembers Beach Haven! Not much has changed, it is still A quiet village atmosphere & very family oriented. The location of this home is ideal. On the beach, a few sandy footsteps away from the beach access, no flip flops necessary! Nothing but blue sky, water and sand views out the windows. Clean and bright inside, just as depicted by the friendly and helpful manager/owners. Far enough out of town to be extra quiet, close enough for convenience - 3 minutes by car, 10 minutes by bicycle. Beaches are extra clean, not too crowded, water was beautiful 65 degrees and kids boogie boarded under the watchful eyes of the lifeguards for hours. I have never seen lifeguards who really supervised their area more like a pool than a beach. It was great to have that extra safety! We rented a surfboard and beach cruisers from the "Boardwalk" down the block and shared some of our favorite things about the beach with our kids....unforgettable!
Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. We hope to see you again soon!

On the beach

Our week long vacation was perfect. Staying right on the beach was truly a luxury and convenience. The house was in a quiet area yet close to shopping. The living space was great. However, the bedrooms were tiny. A couple of negatives...the outdoor shower had poor drainage and I was not willing to shower in a few inches of water. Also, as previously noted in a review, the only bedroom with AC was the master, and the other 2 bedrooms were warm especially when the washer/dryer were running. Overall, the house needs some repairs, but that didn't deter from our overall experience.
Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words and we hope to see you again. Have a good winter. The first floor now has a completely new HVAC ducted system with state of the heat pump and air handler. The second floor has a completely new ductless system. It is a Fujutsu system with each bedroom and the living/kitchen area having its own digital controls. It is also state of the art with new interior and exterior units. The shower situation has been addressed. There are new showers for each unit and the drainage is now longer an issue because they are on platforms. In addition to the issues raised. we now have new windows in most places, new siding, decks and stairways. The exterior has been completely rebuilt, as is the first floor which we had to take down to the studs. We look forward to our guests and their reviews and we thank them. The Todd Family

We have stayed at this beach front house several times over the years. The owners are wonderful attentive people who keep their property in excellent condition. The house is right on the beach! It is also around the corner from places to eat. Beach Haven is a great family place for kids to ride bikes and there is an amusement park and waterpark minutes away. The set up of the house is perfect for families as well. All of us enjoy our time at this beach house. Being able to sleep with the windows open and listen to the ocean makes our vacation even better. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking and the house is very clean and well maintained. Our whole family recommends it!

Our stay could not have been better! We loved this beach home:) Location can NOT be beat, especially with small children who still need naps. Everything we needed was right there. The home is bright and beachy....very well appointed and comfy. We loved all the extra special touches making this beach "house" our beach "home" for the week. We loved that it was just a short walk or bike ride away from all the "action" (especailly the Pearl Street Market and Chicken and the Egg). The owners were a dream to work with....making this much needed vacation a cinch to plan. Don't know when, but we WILL be back!
Thank you for sharing your lovey beach home :)

it's all about the location....it's right on the beach!!!! I have 3 small children, 4 year old girl and twin 2 year old boys and the private beach was great for the kids and I didnt worry about them running out to the ocean. The covered porch is great because you can get out of the sun and still feel like you are on the beach. You can see the ocean from the kitchen, livingroom & front 2 bedrooms. The house has AC but the bedrooms are still warm. At night you don't need the ac because the breeze is amazing and so is falling asleep to the ocean. The unit easily sleeps 7 people and is clean. Once the kids were asleep we had cocktails on the porch and hung out on the beach.
Even though I missed room service & the maid, this was a great place to have a family vacation and we will definitely rent here again.

Owner's Response: Sandy brought a tidal surge and we are among the lucky ones who were able to use the moment to redue the entire place. Brand new HVAC, new electric, new plumbing, windows, floors, kitchen, baths, and siding. We hope you come and enjoy our new look and always great location.
Thank you and we hope to see you again.

My husband and I had a wonderful week this summer with our three young children and my best friend from college. Catching up with a great friend while watching the sun rise from the deck was priceless. The location right on the beach for a young family was extremely convenient. We appreciated the more than ample supply of televisions. The wireless access was great too. The house itself was clean, beachy and comfortable. We made great family memories and will be back next year!

This vacation home is like no other! Walk out the door to the beach to swim or fish. Or if one prefers, one can sit in the living room on the new sofa and stare out the bank of windows to view bathers, surfers, gulls while listening to the throb of waves lapping the shore hinting at some larger plan. This home is more than a vacation spot. While being a wonderful "accommodation" full of comfy beds, etc., this spot brings the peace of the sea in the sight of beautiful sunrises and sounds of nature. I loved the serenity of this unique and beautiful home. It has the power to restore one. As to the questions, The home was wonderfully maintained with a book listing attractions, and a delightful guestbook. It was skillfully and lovingly cared for, but its unique location on this earth is its most amazing feature.
