About the property

6 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms. Huge decks. Minutes to the beach. Swim in the bay

Bay Front Rental with pier and boat slip.

The view absolutely takes your breath away the moment you first see it. This is a custom built three story home in the exclusive East Pointe section of Beach Haven West. The sweeping views from any of the many decks will instantly put you in vacation mode. Set your chair up on our huge 60’ second floor deck and just take in the action on the bay. Or head up even higher to one of the private bedroom decks for an even more exclusive vantage point.

Our home is the perfect vacation home for family time. You can go fishing or crabbing right off of our pier. Set up a beach chair bayside in our huge back yard. Take in the breezes on the decks or cool off in the central air inside.

Minutes from Long Beach Island in Beach Haven West you get all of the best of LBI without the crowds and traffic. You’ll be checked in an eating a burger off of the grill before the rest of the crowds even make it over the bridge.

About Tom

My name is Tom and my wife Eileen and I own this home. It has been in our family since it was build. This home has a special meaning to us as we look forward to sharing family vacations here with our children for many years to come. I spent many summers growing up in this home and life guarding on Long Beach Island. I know the LBI area very well and I honestly think this section of Beach Haven West is one of the best kept secrets on the jersey shore.

Tom purchased this house in 2007

Why Tom chose Jersey Shore

This home was custom built in the 80's by our grandparents. They retired to this home after living in Brooklyn NY. This home is built to a much higher standard than your typical Jersey Shore summer home.

What makes this house unique

You can not beat the views from the decks out back. Most of our renters set up shop on the back porch and just spend day after day relaxing as the sights and sounds of the bay go by in full view. Or if you like getting more involved in the action you can't beat crabbing off the dock or hopping in for a cool dip.

Not much more I can say...The house was emaculate...It was very big as far as the rooms...plenty of bathrooms...The views from the back of the house are some thing you put on a post card...The nieghbor hood as well as the neighbors were great...I fit twelve people in the house and no one was bumping into each other...Great for crabing fishing and boating

FLAT OUT the best vacation house I ever rented, and Ive rented several in the aea. I would recomend it for anyone

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. We agree with you completely about that view, we can sit on that deck all day long and watch the action on the bay. (not to mention you get to watch all of the people stuck in traffic on the bridge heading over to LBI for their Saturday check-in ). We are very lucky that we have such great neighbors and just as lucky that we have attracted such nice rental families such as yours. We look forward to having you stay with us again some day. Oh and by the way, I've heard that the crabbing off of the pier has been outstanding this year. Thanks Again

This is our second year staying here. We love the location, house, views, and basically everything! This is a perfect home to rent for a stay at the shore! We enjoy the kayaks, paddle board, crabbing, and the local area. We always have such a great time here and it is so relaxing. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home with our family of twelve. Two Grandparents, 4 adults and 6 kids! Plenty of space and plenty to do!

A Wonderful New Years Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 12 stay here over New Year's weekend and had a blast. The view of the causeway off the back deck is incredible and it looks beautiful at night when its lit up. There were enough rooms to accommodate everyone, a pool table right in the middle of everything, space for games, an extra fridge, accessible washer/dryer, gas grill, plenty of parking, and a fully stocked kitchen.

The owner met us there when he said he would and was very easy to work with. He showed us around the place and gave us all the information we needed about the neighborhood and such; it was overall a pleasure working with him.

I highly recommend this location and hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did!

Perfect Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to Tom and Eileen for a wonderful week! The house was all we could wish for and more, with plenty of room for all 13 of us plus open space for extras on air mattresses. Stunning sunrises every morning made for a peaceful start to each day. The kayaks and paddle board were fun for all, when we weren't parked on the deck or the dock talking, eating, sipping cocktails and just enjoying life. Beaching it on LBI was an easy drive, too. We ate all but 2 meals at the house, taking full advantage of the big, well-equipped kitchen and gas grill. This house was made for family fun and togetherness. Five+ stars!

This house is located on Barnegat Bay just south of the Long Beach Island causeway in the prestigious East Point section of Beach Haven West. Our local real estate agents show our home as part of their LBI inventory. It is a five minute drive to Long Beach Island and you do not have to go though any traffic lights to get to the island. It has one of the best views of the bay around, the sun rises over LBI and over the bridge resulting in a beautiful sunrise.

Our location on the mainland side of the causeway provides the extra benefit of being closer to the shopping centers on route 72.

Other Activities: Crabbing Jet-Ski Boating Tanning

For weekend rentals, especially for wedding stays. We strongly recommend the linen service. It is well worth the money to not have to worry about washing and folding after your short stay.
