About Richard Decker

Built this lovely home and have shared it with others since then.

Richard Decker purchased this house in 2005

Why Richard Decker chose Long Beach Island

The three rules of real estate: location, location, location! We have it all. We are 1.5 blocks from the beach, with no major roads to cross; our street (12th) has a lifeguard stand; 2 blocks from the bay, 3 blocks from Bay Village in Beach Haven with lots of restaurants, shopping, and fun things to do. ample off street parking on driveway and stones; bike or walk to local amenities

What makes this house unique

You can walk to almost anything, if you want. Our proximity to shopping and restaurants means relaxation and any easy time on the island.

Fantastic vacation house

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend in September at this property and had a fantastic time. The house is modern, spacious, clean and a short two blocks from the beach. The house is walking distance from a number of stores and restaurants, as well. The bedrooms are comfortable, the kitchen is very well-equipped, and the large deck is a great space for relaxing and having group meals. The owner was professional and prompt with responses to questions. The property comes highly recommended and we would definitely stay again!

Great Rental!!

  • 5 of 5

Having rented before on LBI, this was by far one of the best yet!! It is located on a very quiet street with ample parking in the driveway and in front. My daughters and I were so impressed with how well equipped the kitchen was. We had family over for dinner and between the inside and outside tables we were able to easily seat everyone. The house is very well maintained with large, nicely decorated rooms.

The house is a short walk to the beach as well as the amusements and Bay Village, even for my 3 and 5 year old grandchildren.

The owner was always very professional , helpful, and quick to respond to e-mails.

Even better than the photos

  • 5 of 5

I just got back from a week at this house with 7 of my friends. We were so thrilled upon arrival to see that the house is even nicer than it looks in the profile photos. Amenities were as promised (even better actually - I hadn't expected wireless internet, but there it was), and the location is one of few on the island where you can walk to mini golf, amusement park with waterslides, great chowda restaurants, etc. Not to mention the beach - about a 5-minute stroll away.

The house was stocked with everything you'd need to cook for the week, but I would recommend bringing a sharp knife or two from home if you anticipate chopping alot of veggies. (The one Santuko at the house got quite a workout during our stay as it was the only sharp knife we found.)

The owner was professional throughout the process - definitely a seasoned vacation-home renter.

I'd definitely recommend this place to a friend.

Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been fortunate to stay in this house for a week in June for the last three years. We always have a great time, there is plenty of room for everyone, and the beach is terrific! We are looking forward to our week in June again this year! Can't wait to get together with everyone in a great beach house and beautiful location!
