Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I was searching for a vacation home on LBI for quite awhile on my computer & by going down to LBI & meeting with realtors. One of my searches put me onto VRBO where I found the above mentioned home. What luck. My daughter, 10 month old grandson and I went for a week in August. It was fabulous. The house is lovely, clean & well maintained. What you see in the listing is exactly what you get & the owners were a pleasure to work with. The location is great. We could walk to the market, restaurants & basically for anything we needed. Being so close to the beach was a big plus because with the baby we were back & forth. The beach in Surf City was also great. If I return to LBI for vacation in the upcoming year I am looking forward to renting at this location again.

Everything about our stay was amazing. From our communications with Dorie, to the location and the unit itself. The home is in the center of the island, so the drive once we got onto the island was not far at all. Coffee shop (around the corner) and restaurants within walking distance. It is also literally steps from the beach. The apartment is beautiful without being too much to maintain, having a tail-wagging puppy along with us :-) We felt at home.

Loved It

  • 5 of 5

Ms Tallman, the owner, was a joy to communicate with. all emails responded to in a timely manner. The house is great. Literally a breath from the beach. Very nicely appointed. All basic necessities provided and then some. We had several family members visit the first few days and everyone was comfortable and enjoyed themselves. This rental will definitely be at the top of our list when we return to LBI.

Great rental. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year and we were delighted again. Dorie and Wayne couldn't be nicer. The unit is in a great location, it's crisp, clean and well equipped. We love the upstairs deck, the new breakfast bar and all the "little touches" that make our stay so pleasant. We'll be back!!

This was a great location!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time and the location was wonderful. The landlord was very good to work with. It was nice to be able to bring our dog as well! We grilled out on the back porch just about every night. We were upstairs which has 2 bedrooms but one of the bedrooms has a queen bed and bunk beds. The other bedroom had a queen size bed. We enjoyed our stay!

LBI/Surf City Anniversary Get-A-Way AWESOME !!!!

  • 5 of 5

This turned out to be the perfect location to spend our 40th wedding anniversary. The combination of being three doors from the beach and central location make this the absolute perfect place to visit Long Beach Island.

The home was clean and well-maintained exactly as described.

Dori was extremely helpful and very accommodating. The home was very clean and very welcoming. We definitely expect to return again probably in the fall and we are sure that we will find the accommodations as clean, well-maintained, and welcoming as we found them in October.

My wife and I have been coming to LBI for 10+ years and this has to be one of the nicest places we have ever stayed.

Hopefully this review will help you erase any doubt you might have about renting this home, especially renting from Dori T.

Thank you Dori for your wonderful service your hospitality and providing us with a very nice place to stay.

New Jersey beaches are some of the most beautiful on the East Coast. This is a very peaceful area and very relaxing, you can find many fun activities close by or just take a dive in the ocean and watch the beautiful sunrise early or the sunset over the bay at dusk....
