Great Vacation Home for Extended Family

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this house! This was the fifth year in a row for us and we look forward to number six next year. We were 10 people (7 adults and 3 children) and there is more than enough space for all of us. It is listed as accommodating 16 and I think that would work fine. There are many things that make this house afttractive. Number one is location. Being beach front is wonderful for the views as well as convenient access to the beach. We easily go back and forth between the house and the beach (which is essential with kids). The fact that is is also only a few blocks to the bay, allows for easy use of the bay for activities like kayaking and paddle boarding. It is easy walking distance to a wide variety of restaurants, bagel shop, bars, retail stores, etc. Because it is only a few blocks from the causeway, it is easy to get on and off the island during peak times. The house itself is very comfortable and the extensive decks are wonderful. The owner, Chris, is a pleasure to deal with. He is extremely responsive and always tries to meet your needs. He continually is making upgrades to the house as well as keeping up with the maintenance necessary for a beach front house.

We chose Sandy Haven to celebrate our 50th anniversary -- a gathering of three generations ranging in age from 14 months to 78 years. They came and went over a two-week period. This house is so EASY TO REACH -- just a few minutes from the causeway. The fact that it is ON THE BEACH is a true blessing for those with toddlers, and a perk with teens. Just off the street, it offers OFF STREET PARKING for a number of cars -- a real bonus on this popular island. The REVERSE LIVING KEPT US TRIM no matter how much snacking, eating and drinking we did (and we did a lot)! And NOTHING COULD BEAT THE VIEW of the sunrise over the ocean and beach activity all day from the 3rd floor deck -- EXCEPT seeing sunsets (and in our case, fireworks) from the rooftop deck. In addition to the kitchen, the grill made it easy to COOK FOR A LARGE GROUP and tables inside and out made seating simple. INTERNET ACCESS made it possible for those away from work to stay in touch and for those accustomed to WiFi relaxation to pursue it. With so many people, the huge OUTSIDE SHOWER was a life saver, and TWO FULL BATHS on the second floor made bathing toddlers easy. (Also the unexpectedly HUGE WASHER/DRYER served us well.) There were lots of shops and activities within walking distance (including BAGELEDDI'S, an island morning hot spot), but the quiet of Barnegat Light or the frenzy of Beach Haven were about equally distant for those who chose them. My husband and I relished having this SPECIAL TIME UNDER ONE ROOF THAT PROVIDED SPACE AND COMFORT FOR EVERYONE.

Great for a Group of Friends!

  • 4 of 5

We had an awesome weekend last October with 6 couples. The decks are perfect and there is nothing like the view. The basement and the upstairs living area were perfect for watching football and making drinks and food to enjoy together. Each room had ample space and the house is a couple houses away from the Porthole which was fun to run up there for drinks together and not have to drive. The master bedroom is excellent and there is so much space, everyone had plenty of room. Chris is also VERY acommodating and fair and easy to work with -- he was great! Highly recommend to anyone! Great weekend!

Location! Location! Location! What a view!

  • 5 of 5

We rated this house 5 STARS but if there were 10 STARS that would have been our rating! We visited the house to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. Four families with with 13 people and we had plenty of room. Decks off all major bedrooms and off living and dining area with a view of the ocean that was not to be believed. I especially appreciated the fantastic ocean view I experienced while cooking in the kitchen! There is no way that we can describe this house adequately. Even the kids had their own floor complete with leather couches & X-box. Our thanks to Chris, the owner. You should be very proud of your house. It's one in a million.

Great House for Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was the third year that we have stayed at this house. It is great for our family gathering. We have ten people in four families across three generations. It really has worked well for us. The location is great because of the views, the proximity to the beach and beach access and proximity to restaurants, shopping and amusements. The layout of the house works very nicely for us. Enough space to allow privacy as well as enough common space for us all to be together for meals and family time. The young kids really like the basement family room as well as the roof-top deck. They view it as their private space. The owner of the house is a pleasure to deal with. He is very accommodating and tries hard to meet your needs. The most recent renovations which included a new refrigerator, new sofas, tables, chairs, bar stools as well as flat screen TVs in all bedrooms was appreciated by all of us.

The BEST house and vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for a week for a family gathering. There were 16 of us (5 families) and we had plenty of room. The views are spectacular and floor plan works great. We could all hang out in the living room/dining room/kitchen and be together while doing different things. The kids loved the playroom which was HUGE.

Each adult couple had a balcony off their room which was a plus and one room is perfect for kids. The downstairs also had a pull out couch as well as 2 other couches so the kids had their own "kidcave". They appreciated having their own space.

It was also great to come back from the beach and enter downstairs so the sand in the house was minimal. Overall the whole house was very homey and we felt comfortable from the moment we got there. When we mentioned to the owner how many people we were he made sure we had enough of everything including wine glasses and silverware. He was very accomodating with our reservation and we got the full security deposit back very quickly.

As for the location, it could not be better. The house is on the beach and one house off the beach access. It is a few houses from the main road. Within 3 blocks was pizza, bagels, miniature golf, a nightclub, a bar (with great food we brought to the beach for lunch) a candy store and a little market. We hardly got in our car all week.

I would absolutely recommend this house, just don;t take it when we want it again!! ENJOY!!
