About Ann

We grew up in New York, live in Los Angeles and love to come back 'home' to enjoy the beach in Lavallette.

Ann purchased this house in 2005

Why Ann chose Toms River

There is not a better beach in the world than the Jersey Shore! And this home is close to everything - parks, beaches, mini golf, bagel shop, ice cream, restaurants, etc. - all walking distance.

What makes this house unique

Easy access to both the ocean beach and bay beach, one block each way, means this home is in the ideal location. Recently remodeled with top off the line appliances throughout. Excellent beach association has fun stuff for the entire family. Raised home means even Hurricane Sandy can't flood it.

Fun week at the New Jersey Shore

  • 5 of 5

- This house was everything we had hoped it would be. Very clean and neat- all the comforts of a home away from home. The only thing missing was a potato peeler and when I told the caretaker - the very next day she brought one over to the house for us ! It was really a pleasure to stay at this property.

thank you

Great rental close to everything

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a last-minute getaway, and this property was great. It was clean and everything was as promised. It was close to great restaurants and had easy beach access--two things we really wanted. We'd definitely recommend this for a great vacation.

Pros and Cons

  • 3 of 5

The pros: Only a few blocks from the beach and bay. Nice views and no problem for a small party. Ceiling fans keep the rooms cool and the beds are in good shape. Nice area outside to hang out. Owners are very responsive: we had a toilet leak and they called within 10 minutes and sent a plumber the next day to fix it.

The cons: The lights: the kitchen light fixture is not operational. We changed bulbs and it still did not work. We actually had to move a small lamp around the house where we needed light. Also, NONE of the outside lights work, which made it difficult to sit outside in the evening. I think it should be a no-brainer to check things like lights, etc before the rental season starts. Oh well, at least maybe it will be repaired for the next renters. Also, the shower has two temps: freezing cold and boiling hot. This was hard for my older mother who was celebrating her birthday on this trip. Taking a normal shower would have been nice.

So, overall, it was nice and did the job BUT some basic maintenance would be nice.

Owner's Response: Sorry to hear about some of the issues mentioned here, which would have been cleared up very easily with a quick email from this guest. As the guest already attested, we, the owners, are very responsive. As far as the lights, there are plenty of lights inside and outside the house, and we replace light bulbs regularly. IMPORTANT - there are small dimmer switches next to all the light switches in the house, which control the amount of light you get. If the dimmers are all the way down, you will not get light even if the switch is "on." All a tenant has to do is raise up the small dimmer switches and viola - light! Same thing with the kitchen light and fan. That said, we will make this clear to all future guests in our house instructions sheet so there is no more confusion. The water temperature for the shower can be adjusted by adjusting the water heater thermostat located in the living room closet. Its easy to do and easy access. Again, just email us with any issues or questions and you will be taken care of.

Quaint beach house centrally located in a safe neighborhood with easy beach access.

  • 5 of 5

The two bedroom beach house was within easy walking distance to the beach. The beach house had all the amenities you could ask for including a washer/dryer. The beds were comfortable and there was a TV also in the bedroom. I loved my stay here and the people in the community were very nice and friendly. I hope to return soon. Thank you Ann B. for a great stay.

Last min stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were pressed for a place to stay while we closed on a house in a nearby town, Ann was exceptional and absolutely understanding especially with us having a large breed dog! When most would turn us away because of his size and breed, she welcomed us into her home! It was perfect for a short stay with all of the kitchen supplies already in place! I was so happy i didnt have to spend 3 months in a hotel! We enjoyed every minute of being in lavalette!
