About Julie A Gensch

Love LBi

Julie A Gensch purchased this house in 2005

Why Julie A Gensch chose Beach Haven

Love Beach Haven and this particular location because I don't want to drive my car when on vacation. I can walk to the beach , bay, food stores, icecream, sushi, specialty markets, water park and amusements. Love victorian homes and all their charm. Spectacular stained glass windows of many different colors, wide planked soft pine floors and the fantastic wrap around porch just to mention a few of this homes allure!

Three Year Occupant

  • 5 of 5

The family has stayed at this lovely home three years in a row and found it to be very convienent and most comfortabile. We park the cars and walk or bike to the beach and most events. The house is bright and clean and EVERYTHING is provided. The cleaning and linen service make for an easy move in and out and the owners are friendly and responsive. We are booked for next year; we highly recommend this home. Mike & Family

AMAZING HOUSE!!! Perfect location!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family vacationed at this home for one week in August. We shared the house with two other families. We absolutely loved the house and the location!!! The house was well maintained, beautifully decorated and very clean! There was plenty of living space, beds and closets! The top floor was a great area for all the kiddies to hang out! The kitchen was big and stocked with spices! One of our favorite things about the house were the two outdoor showers! They were great to clean the kids and get all the sand off of them before entering the house! The owner Julie was very responsive to my emails and communication was fast and simple! It was a pleasure speaking with her!

As far as the location, it doesn't get any better! You don't need to drive anywhere! Huge grocery store right up the block, as well as a pharmacy, mini golf, salon, and a ton of things to do within a few blocks - amusement park, water park, shops and restaurants!!! Oh and of course THE BEACH!!! There were even concerts held at the park down the block from the house on a few of the evenings. This house is the PERFECT location to experience LBI and make memories that will last a lifetime!!!

One of the best houses on the Island

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about how much I love this house. There are plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms, and TWO outside showers. Plus, the house is decorated beautifully. The wrap-around porch has a ton of seating. In fact, it rained pretty steadily one day while we were there, but we all had a seat on the porch and were able to enjoy being outside without getting rained on. Having Murphy's (grocery/liquor store) across the street is so convenient. The house is also on the same street as the newly renovated Tucker's, and the Engleside and Seashell (hotels with outdoor bars/dining). The home's owner, Julie, is a pleasure to work with.

This was an absolutely perfect house for our combined family vacation. Adults and small children all had a great time. The location offered a great variety of activities and restaurants and the house was in great condition. We're back for a second time.
