Four-bedroom cottage in quiet residential neighborhood. One block from the Beach and one block from the bay. A block and a half walk to one of the nicest beaches on the island; there are no major streets (two small streets) to cross to get to the lifeguard protected beach. Two streets to cross to get to the bay where there is a small dock for fishing and crabbing. The cottage is about 9 blocks south of the center of town, which includes recreational activities such as miniature golf and shopping.
Built to catch the southerly breezes, the house also has air conditioning, two porches and a back yard for barbecuing. There are three bedrooms and two full baths upstairs and one bedroom and full bath downstairs. TVs in living room and upstairs bedrooms. High speed, wireless Internet and DVD players provided.
Our experience at this house was amazing. The house is very close to both an amazing beach and a short drive away from great restaurants and Fantasy Island. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly, and the house is beautiful, well kept and very functional. It has a nice back yard with a grill, outdoor shower, and hammock. Overall, the house was very clean and cozy. Nancy (the owner) was very helpful, and made the entire rental process easy. I highly recommend this house and would love to go back!
We stayed here again in November. We love LBI this time of year, so quiet, so relaxing! House was very clean as usual. Feels like our second home, super inviting and comfortable home near the beach. Thanks again Nancy!
We had an excellent stay. Quiet neighborhood, roomy, cozy, safe, & clean home. Nancy (the Owner) was very nice and helpful. Home is a short walk from the beach. Has everything you need for a quick getaway or an extended stay. Plenty of room for family and friends. Can't say enough good things about this home. We will be back for sure!
The landlord, Nancy, was wonderful and very accommodating. The house was clean and had a great feel to it. It was more like a large, quaint cottage as compared to something modern. Which was exactly what we were looking for. Loved the town of Beach Haven.
This property feel short of expectations. To start with, it lists internet access availability which we had planned on for work commitments. When we arrived there was no access. The kitchen had numerous ant traps placed throughout which did not deter the ants that crawled on the counter tops. The coffee pot did not operate properly. There were no screens in the windows which prevented leaving any windows open.
The downstairs bedroom and "full" bath are very tiny. The furniture was very uncomfortable.
The house has potential but would not recommend this given our experience.
Beach Haven is at the southern end of Long Beach Island, a barrier island off the coast of New Jersey. The island is very narrow so it is an easy walk to both the beach and the bay. The beaches are beautiful and the surf is great. LBI is an hour from Atlantic City, an hour and a half from Philadelphia and two hours from New York City. Fishing is usually good, sailing is great and there is golf on the main land. There is also canoeing and kayaking in the nearby Pine Barrens. There are many good restaurants, lots of opportunity for nightlife as well as many activities for children.
Ocean temperatures usually range between 65 and 72. The bay is warmer. There is a bay beach and places to rent boats, bikes, etc. Bike paths are available for safe biking and roller-blading. There is also a boat trip to Atlantic City daily.
Golf: There are a number of public golf courses on the main land. Driving time would be anywhere from one half hour to an hour.
Beach Badges included.
