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

Great House for a Family Weekend Vacation

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our group included six adults and five children (ranging from 6 to 3 years old) during a stay in early August, 2017. The house was perfect for the group. We never felt uncomfortable or cramped and everyone had their own space. The kids loved hunting for crabs and fishing from the dock. We ate all our meals on the deck and used the grill provided with the house.

The location was also great for our group. The house is located on a family friendly and quiet street. It was also close to some restaurants and grocery stores. Although we were not on LBI, it only took 15 minutes to drive to the beaches on LBI (where there was plenty of parking) and no more than 30 minutes to get to the far ends of LBI.

Tom and Eileen were great hosts and provided helpful suggestions on activities, restaurants, etc. We would definitely stay here again.

Large home with ideal floor plan and views to die for

  • 5 of 5

This home is among the largest in the area. The layout is ideal for entertaining with 4 bedrooms on the top floor, living space on the second floor and a 2 bedroom/full bath/living room separate space on the first floor that was perfect for guests that need their own "apartment" type space with 3 TVs and plenty of room to expand, lounge and hang out away from the rest of the house.

The views are amazing. They cannot be overstated and the house maximizes the views with multiple large decks and plenty of outdoor dining space.

The large grill right off the kitchen is hooked up to the gas so it never runs out! What a luxury!!

The pool table has been well used but I t is in good shape and our guests thoroughly enjoyed playing every day and especially when it rained.

There are 4 full baths in this house which means after the beach it doesn't take long to get everyone cleaned up for dinner. The water system allows the showers to be used simultaneously and we never ran out of hot water even with 10 people in the house.

The 2 double kayaks were used daily and lifting them into the water was easy with the large dock that extends far over the water. The stand up paddle board was a great surprise and enjoyed by the kids and teens especially. The crab traps were another added bonus - we added bait and were quickly engrossed in checking the traps several times each day.

The AC system is dual zoned and very powerful. The array of appliances in the kitchen - toaster oven, toaster, margarita maker, keurig, blender, hand mixer, etc. was amazing. The clothes washer and extra large dryer were extremely efficient and made beach clean up easy even with lots of beach towels.

This house will be extremely hard to top with owners who are nearby, extremely responsive and very helpful.

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 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.

Car: recommended

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
