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

We had a fantastic week in Beach Haven West
The property was awesome. Great views of the bay. Sunrises and sunsets. Fishing and relaxing. Hope to book next year. Thanks Tom
Nice location but home could use some TLC
I have waited a few weeks since our stay to write this review. We stayed in mid August with 4 other couples and I wanted to talk to them about my comments before writing this review. Overall, our stay was very nice. The location is very good if you do not want to stay right on LBI. To be fair though, I think guests should know that this home could use some TLC. For example, in all 3 of the bathrooms, the towel bars were falling off. The carpeting was quite dirty, and could have used a good cleaning. It seemed like it was more than just from this one summer season. Paint was peeling in some of the bathrooms. I would have to say that the impression of the home was not as good as we had hoped based on reviews and pictures. I am sorry to write this, as I do not normally write anything negative, but I think it is only fair to point this out to future potential guests as I would have wanted someone to do the same for me.
Great water views and water amenities
Lovely bay home with great water views, and water amenities. The homeowners were wonderful, and available for any needs that arose. House was large enough to comfortably fit our family for a reunion. It was conveniently located near stores, and LBI. It was one of the nicest houses we rented down the shore, in a while. It was well equipped, and we found everything we needed very easily.
House was GREAT, our family enjoyed a relaxing Thanksgiving week down the shore.
Great House for a Family Weekend Vacation
We had a great weekend at this house. There was plenty of room for everyone (10 total - 6 adults, 4 kids), and it was great to be on the water. Eileen was very accommodating and even stopped by with some extra essentials when we noticed some items were missing. We had never been to the Jersey Shore and really enjoyed our time there - Eileen had some great recommendations on places to check out that were family friendly. Thanks to both Tom and Eileen for sharing your home with us - we'd love to be back.
Wonderful time spent with family
We enjoyed our time spent here with our family. We are repeat renters and always have had a positive experience with the landlord.
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.
