About Richard Decker

We built our house in 2005, and have had the pleasure of making it available for others to share.

Richard Decker purchased this house in 2005

Why Richard Decker chose Long Beach Island

The three rules of real estate are : location, location, location. We have all three: 1.5 blocks from the ocean, with no major roads to cross; 12th Street (our street) has a lifeguard's stand; 2 blocks from the bay; 3 blocks from Bay Village in Beach Haven; tons of restaurants, shopping and fun things to do; bike and stroller friendly location; ample off street parking.

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. Bay Village is just 3 blocks away with shops and restaurants; Fantasy Island just 5 blocks. Easy to get around and enjoy everything that Beach Haven has to offer.

Great week with friends

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed here for a wonderful week. The location is perfect and the house is very spacious. We are a group of friends who have young children under 2 years old. Each family had their own bedroom and plenty of room to fit a pack and play and all the toys and equipment that come along with little ones! The house is centrally located to everything. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Beyond expectations

  • 5 of 5

This home exceeded our expectations.The home is defintely more attractive in person. The rooms are all bigger than they appear in the pictures. Some of the bedrooms were better than others.The kitchen was well stocked. The amount of storage and cabinet and counter space was more than ample.The living room could use another comfy chair or two for when everyone is up there watching a movie or tv. The AC functioned well. Generous lighting and outlet for everyones '"electronics" and appliances. Plenty of room for 9 adults and 3 children under the age of 3. Only used the car once to go to the grocery store. Bay village was a 3-4 block walk from our home. Another reviewer did note not everything is open as early as we went down. Wasn't really an inconvenience to us because of the age of the kids. It was only 1 1/2 block to a beautiful, clean beach. Our only complaint is that we didn't book it for 2 weeks. Sad to go. Would feel perfectly confident booking again. Thanks again for an awesome home away from home!

early summer getaway

  • 4 of 5

Three families with 3 young children each stayed here during the second week of June. The house was beautiful and very well kept. The beach was also very nice and private. The only drawback was that we went before peak season began so much of the surrounding businesses were still closed. It wasn't until our last full day that things began to open. But the amusement park was great, the Show Place ice cream parlor was a blast and Atlantic City was only 45 min away. All around everyone in our party had a great time.

Beach Haven House

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived we found that the house perfectly matched the description that was posted on the site. House was perfect for our family of 12. It was very well equipped and we lacked nothing. Outside shower was extremely convenient--both decks were great.

Would definitely return or recommend to a friend. Location was perfect for Beach, Bay Village and Panzone's (excellent restaurant).

Fun in the Sun

  • 4 of 5

The house was lovely. I enjoyed the large, bright and airy rooms. The kitchen family room area was great and we loved that the house had a well appointed kitchen. The only disappointments with the house were a lack of good cutting and chopping knives, a big lobster pot and that no beach passes were included. The owner should throw in at least half a dozen of them. we have stayed in other beach houses where they get season passes and the guests use them while they are renting. We were close enough to the beach itself and many good shopping areas as well as restaurants and other attractions.
