Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12) NA for teen or young adult groups.

5 West 77th Street in Harvey Cedars is a 4 bedroom, 2 bath home. At this location in Harvey Cedars, the island is just two blocks wide, making the ocean and the bay very close. 'Downtown' Harvey Cedars is just 4 blocks away for ice cream, groceries or a cheese steak at Neptunes.

We think our home is an ideal rental for an extended family, or two families with children. We will not rent for a week or weekend for teens or young adults. Period. Every room has a ceiling fan and central AC is available.

On the main floor there are 2 bedrooms and a bath. One bedroom has a queen bed and the other has twin beds. The main living room/dining and kitchen are on this floor. On the second floor there are 2 bedrooms and a bath. One bedroom has a queen bed and other has a double/single bunk and a twin - so 4 people share. The living room on this floor also has a queen fold-out couch.

There are porches and decks both in front and in back and there's a really cool 'crow's nest' all the way on top of the house from which you can see the bay and the ocean.

About Sandy Heath and Suellen Riffkin

My sister and I own this house together. It's been in the family for years. I live in Utah, she's in Calgary, and spending several weeks with relatives at our beach house is one of the best ways I know to stay close.

Sandy Heath and Suellen Riffkin purchased this house in 2006

Why Sandy Heath and Suellen Riffkin chose Harvey Cedars

Our family has spent at least a week on LBI for every summer of my life - since 1961! Our family has grown and we wanted a place where we could all stay together. Since we don't use it all season, we want to share it with others.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Suellen and Lisa. Thank you both so much for opening your home to my family. We had a wonderful week not only because the weather and ocean turned out to be great, but because the house was just about perfect as well. There was never a moment when we found ourselves in need of anything. Your concern with the A/C problem demonstrated your sincere commitment to your visitors. Once we reset the AC system, the rest of the week was as comfortable as our own home. The DVD player wasn’t hooked up so we found a cable that allowed us to use it several times. The new flat screen was nice to have at our disposal. We left it in place so others wouldn’t have a problem figuring it out. Other than that, the place was cozy and comfy throughout the week. We would definitely rent again. Thanks for your accommodating spirit and hospitality. The “Welcome Basket” was a nice touch and the kids gobbled it up quickly. Don’t hesitate to call on me if I can help in any way. Best regards, Mike

PD

  • 5 of 5

The house was great and it had everything we needed. The porches and decks are the perfect spot for watching sunsets, reading and relaxing. Easy walk to the ocean, the bay, stores and ice cream shop - no need to use your car once you great there. The location couldn't be better. And the outdoor shower was enjoyed by all.

Perfect beach house in the best LBI town!

  • 5 of 5

The Beach House was perfect. My kids loved the roof deck, the bikes, the games, and the kids to play with on the street. I loved the kitchen that had everything, the barbecue grill that was great, and the well-stocked bookcase. We all loved walking to the bay in 1 minute and to the ocean in 3 minutes. Harvey Cedars is great because it's so narrow from ocean to bay (about 10 houses wide). We stayed at the house with my 5 children and my parents which was very comfortable. There are two bedrooms and a living room area upstairs, with decks out front and out back. And there are two bedrooms, living room, kitchen and dining room on the main floor. It feels very homey, right down to the extra beach bags and sun hat in the closet, the sunscreen in the cupboards, the Monopoly game upstairs, and the boogie boards in the shed. There are 2 TVs and air conditioning, but we never used them.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent 8 days in this simple cottage in a perfect location on LBI. It was a short walk (or wagon ride) to both the bay and the beach. Days were spent playing in the sand and surf and evenings started with sunset over the bay topped off by another wagon ride to ice cream. We all took outdoor showers except the littlest one who refused so instead bathed in the cooler near the outdoor shower every night. It was fun and lovely and we made many happy memories as well as some new friends.

Great time at the beach!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great time with our 18 month old while my sister stayed on the lower level with her teenagers. There was room for everyone with two levels and multiple porches and living spaces. We enjoyed being close to the beach and the bay beach for our 18 month old just 2 short blocks away. Neptune and an ice cream parlor two blocks in the other direction. Hope to visit again soon!

1 week stay in early June

  • 5 of 5

Went to LBI with my sons and their girlfriends. The house was great-I loved all the porches. There was plenty of room for 6 of us. We had everything we needed and felt completely comfortable. I would definitely rent the house again!
