Summer Time Fun!

  • 5 of 5

Just finished a family vacation for 10 at Dolphin Watch. It was our first time staying on LBI and it worked out really well--even the weather was fantastic. The house is clean, roomy, well stocked with kitchen necessities, bikes, beach chairs, umbrellas, movies and a ping pong table in the garage. As bikers, we were able to ride to the lighthouse and back(under 10 miles) in the morning and be on the clean, beautiful beach in the afternoon. Harvey Cedars is a great location-a little bit away from the hustle and bustle of the more commercial areas. This is definitely a place to revisit.

Great place to vacation with the family

  • 5 of 5

The owners are super nice people and take great pride and care in their home, and make you feel at home. Dolphin Watch is a modern, clean, updated comfortable house with good air conditioning, reliable internet and several cable TVs in the house. The property is very well stocked - from a complete kitchen to many beach chairs and beach toys. Good grill on a great deck for outside eating (and a separate solid plastic picnic table for the little ones) and a rooftop deck for watching the bay and sunset. Easy, short walk to the beach on the ocean side. Great outdoor shower when you return from the beach. A very short walk across the road to nightly magnificent sunsets on the bay. For a bicycling enthusiast, you go right from the garage to miles of flat roads (less than 5 miles to the lighthouse). We would definitely love to come back and our children and grandchildren feel the same way.

Beach Lovers Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first vacation to LBI and our first experience with VRBO. Both were fantastic!! The owners of this property are wonderful caring people who obviously want their guests to enjoy the property as if it were their own. They have thought of everything!! The kitchen is fully stocked as well as beach toys and beach equipment. We all enjoyed the outdoor shower, sunsets on the deck, BBQ'ing, cooking and drinking, beach days, cycling Long beach Blvd, walks to town. You name it we did it and the location of this property was perfect for it all!!

We were a group of 10 with the youngest being an 18 month old. There was even a pack-n-play for her! We all fit very comfortable. We did not feel cramped for space and the 5 kids had a blast. Plenty of things in the house to keep them busy and the Ping Pong table was a big hit!

If you like comfort and a clean modern house, Dolphin Watch would be a great place to vacation. We will be back next year for sure!!

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

We have spent 3 years at LBI for our family vacations. This year we chose Dolphin Watch and had such a nice time. It fronts a busy road, but we kept the front door locked so the little people wouldn't use it. And that worked out fine, because the owner's neighbors behind Dolphin House let renters get to the beach by cutting through their yards. Traffic noise wasn't a problem for us , we always had music playing by day and had sound machines on overnight. Shirley and Darryl were very helpful with any questions we had. We had room for our 11 family members . My daughters brought PackNPlays and a double sized air bag. Everybody was comfortable. The master bedroom and bath is lovely. The other bedrooms are great as well. The kitchen is bright and open and equipped with anything we needed. We grilled on the outside deck often . As I said, we cut through neighbors yard to get the the beach, which is just a short walk away. The beach is beautiful. The kids really enjoyed playing in the sand together. The water was chilly but didn't stop many of us from swimming. You can cross the road to walk to the bay but we didn't do that much as we were really enjoying the beach on "our" side. Everyone left happy that we chose Dolphin House. LBI is such a great, family oriented place. It was a wonderful vacation .

Best family vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 10 has vacationed in great locations on both coasts, and we all agree Dolphin Watch afforded the best of everything: accommodating and available hosts; spacious, airy, well-maintained home; and ideal location half a block from a clean, guarded swimming beach. We love to cook and made good use of the well-stocked kitchen. The sleeping arrangements comfortably accommodated grandparents, two sets of parents, and 4 grandkids, aged 4-14. In the late afternoon and evening, after long days at the beach, we made good use of the 3-level decks for lounging, reading, cooking on the grill, dining, and (on the roof deck) sunset-watching. LBI and surrounds offers innumerable pleasures, but we found so much to love at Dolphin Watch that we never strayed far. Hope to return again and again.
