So happy we chose Steal Away!

  • 5 of 5

I rented Steal Away for a long weekend to house my extended family when my daughter was being married on LBI. It was the perfect house. The location is ideal, a block from the beach and an easy walk to shops, restaurants and entertainment. The house itself is a charmingly decorated historic building with modern updates. It was hot and humid while we were there but the window a/c units kept everyone comfortable. The kitchen is huge, modern, and well-equipped. Over half the rooms have ensuite bathrooms, so the adults all had their own space, while the kids were accommodated sharing two hall baths. Finally, the landlord is great to work with – responsive and easy to reach. I couldn’t have asked for a better situation.

Best house in Beach Haven!

  • 5 of 5

The perfect place for our family reunion. Very close to the beach, Chegg, Show Place Ice Cream, and Surflight Theater. Something for everyone. The house itself was charming, spacious, and had all the comforts of home. Very well kept. Loved the large wrap-around porch, a bathroom for every room, and comfortable group seating areas. Beach tags, chairs, and umbrellas were a huge plus. Made easy to maintain with all of the tools and supplies at our fingertips. At first we thought it was a bit expensive, but remember, you get what you pay for - well worth the price!

We highly recommend Steal Away to anyone and everyone considering vacationing at Beach Haven, LBI.

Our family of 16+ people had a wonderful week in this fabulous home! 

It was clean, spacious, well stocked, and well maintained.  Having the garage with extra fridge, umbrellas and chairs was a bonus. Everyone, young and old, enjoyed the comfortable covered porch day and night.  There was plenty of room to gather but also lots of quiet spots to rest or curl up with a book.  First floor bedroom with bath was ideal for our parents.  It was a luxury to have so many bathrooms in a beach home.  I was pleasantly surprised at how well the ac units worked. The recent upgrades to the house were fabulous. And of course, the location can't be beat! Lifeguarded ocean beach, bay, fishing, grocery, ice cream, mini golf, coffee shops, church, restaurants all within walking distance!!

MaryLou at AJs bike rental was terrific and the kids biked everywhere.  Kathy and Mary at Seaspray Cleaners linen rental made that task easy.

The owner's attention to details made our stay comfortable.

Perfect for our family....

  • 5 of 5

Just a beautiful home. If you love the charm of an older home with the convenience of an updated home, this is your place. We stayed here during my son's wedding at the Jersey Shore and we couldn't have asked for a roomier, cleaner, well appointed home.

We were able to use many rooms and the beautiful porch as a backdrop for wedding photos (that's how beautiful it is). Conveniently located just steps away from the beach, everyone who stayed with us enjoyed their visit. We spend the evening enjoying time with family and friends on the wraparound porch. We even had our rehearsal dinner there. The common areas offered plenty of space along with all the necessary equipment and utensils to meet our needs.

As a matter of fact, we needed an iron and ironing board at the last minute to prepare for the wedding and the owners ran over to make sure we had both (actually they provided two irons). You can't beat their hospitality. I would definitely recommend this home and these owners. You have the option of paying for cleaning service on departure. Definitely a plus with the size of this home!

Thanksgiving 2011

  • 5 of 5

My family and my sister's family celebrated the Thanksgiving Holiday at "Steal Away" this year. We have 25 family members including 9 children and all arrived on Wednesday to an immaculate welcoming house. The home is warm and cozy and was perfect for the occasion. Everything was provided including made up beds, clean towels, table cloths, fresh flowers, anything you would think you would need in the kitchen, etc. etc. We needed only to bring the Turkey and sides!!!. The dining room provided a large table that sat all adults and some children and we had the "children's table" in the living room. A very important feature of this house is all bedroom have their own baths. The kids enjoyed the short walk to the beach and the adults enjoyed the short walk in the other direction to the tavern on the corner. We felt right at home in this house and everyone enjoyed the time together. We live at the Jersey Shore a little farther north but this was a nice getaway for the holiday without having far to travel. Certainly, we are looking and hoping for a 2013 Thanksgiving (we have to alternate with the in-laws). The owners were extremely accomodating and easy to deal with and as warm and friendly as the home they maintain for others to enjoy. I have already recommended this home to a group of school friends who are looking to reunite on LBI sometime next year.

Fabulous House

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing house! We had a large group of friends from all parts of the country get together - 18 of us in total, and there was plenty of room to accomodate everyone. When we arrived, the house was spotless. The kitchen is large and open, which was perfect for us girls to hang out while preparing food inside and the men outside on the large wrap around porch or firing up the two grills - a necessity for such a large group! Only a few houses from the beach, and the market, restaurants and shops are all within walking distance. One thing I especially appreciated was that there were cleaning supplies in every bathroom and a vacuum on every floor - which made cleaning up on Saturday before we left much easier (we didn't have to "share" one roll of paper towels and one bottle of cleaner!)...good thinking on the owners part - no wonder the house was immaculate upon arrival! We already booked for next year and we can't wait! Definitely a great vacation house.
