TWO LARGE OCEANFRONT DECKS. Stunning oceanfront views! This 3 bedroom, 2 full-bath oceanfront is on Long Beach Island in Harvey Cedars and just STEPS to the beach! This north unit has 2 floors with an oceanfront deck on each floor! Watch the sun and moon rise over the ocean and the dolphins parade by. The 1st floor has a new queen mattress and a full bath, an open eat-in kitchen and living room (with a 40' flat screen TV) with super views of the ocean. Brand new sleeper sofa in the living room! There is a large wrap-around oceanfront deck with dining table and deck chairs. The 2nd floor has 2 bedrooms, a 26' flat screen TV and a full bath. There is a large square 2nd floor oceanfront deck with plenty of comfy seating and also a table and chairs. One of the upstairs bedrooms has a partial oceanfront view.
Only 2 blocks to town and 2 blocks to the life-guarded bay beach. It's a fabulous oceanfront side-by-side duplex with 100 feet of ocean frontage. We do not rent out the south unit.
This North Unit is quiet and tucked away. The beach entrance is at the base of the driveway and there are lifeguards right out front but there is no need to leave the house with these oceanfront decks and views! .
We are in the best spot! The town has a post office, liquor store, small grocery store, ice cream parlors, and a bunch of eat-in and takeout restaurants.
Amenities include 5 window ACs, satellite TV with ALL of the channels, wireless high speed cable internet, 6 beach badges, oversized outdoor shower, gas grill, washer/dryer, dishwasher. Two TVs and DVD player. 40' & 26' flat screen TVs.
NOTE: This is not a newer fancy house. This is a nice older house RIGHT ON THE BEACH with 2 OCEANFRONT DECKS and AMAZING VIEWS!
My husband and I had a wonderful time during our stay!! It was one of the most relaxing vacations we've ever had. We loved the 2nd floor outside deck, what a great place to sit, read or have cocktails, watch the sun rise and see the moon reflecting over the ocean at night-such beautiful views!!!!!! The downstairs deck was a great place to eat outside and hear the ocean. We didn't go out once to eat & cooked all our meals at the house. This is a great location for a shore house rental. It's also a good location for bicycle riding to the lighthouse or into town for the shops and restaurants. My two dogs loved their walks to the bay beach; we enjoyed being so close to the ocean. The constant sound of the ocean waves was fantastic to hear, the ocean breezes were refreshing. There are many windows in the house for natural light and to view the beach dunes/ocean. The street was very quiet which made our stay more enjoyable. We are both very glad we booked this shore house and look forward to doing so again. The owners were plesant and very quick to answer any questions we had concerning our vacation stay.
I'd first like to thank Wendy and Raj in case they read the review. This was my second year renting from them, and they are amazing people and so easy to work with. The house is beautiful, and you cannot beat its location to everything and view. This year, I ended up needing to adjust my renting plans because of personal reasons, and Wendy was accommodating through the whole situation and relieved a lot of anxiety. Her and Raj were understanding and worked with me on anything I needed. Even if we had hiccups, Wendy was understanding and polite in everything she did, and I'm so fortunate to have rented from both of them. I hope they enjoyed me as much as I did them because I look forward to returning each year possible. I cannot stress their character and the positive's of the house enough. The location, grill, view, cleaniness, you name it. It's great for families or simply getting away on your own. You're guaranteed to have a great time, and I highly recommend the unit!
From the first contact with the owner, to the extra information she provided prior to our arrival, to the dog-friendly accommodation, this was a wonderful experience. The North Unit was exactly as pictured and was well-maintained and clean. There are only 5 steps up to the front door making it accessible for my Mother who uses a cane. The Oceanfront location is on a quiet street with ample privacy and private parking. The entrance to the beach is just a few steps from the end of the driveway. The two decks provided plenty of space to relax, eat meals and take in the spectacular views. Just a short walk to the other end of the street is the Harvey Cedars Bay front Park. Dining, shops and stores are all within walking distance. We'll be back!
My husband and I and dog had the most relaxing week here - enjoying the beach access as much as sitting on the deck from the house simply watching the waves....memorizing. Beautiful unobstructed views.
We felt the location was premier even beyond the direct beach access, as it was also a bit north of a lot of loud nightlife and such - located by nicer restaurants and a quick easy drive to lighthouse area and great community dog park. The house is "bring your own" everything - which I found easier. Nothing to refill or worry about - and had great AC, wifi, washer dryer, kitchen eating area, pots for cooking etc. If I could afford a beach house, this would be it. Luckily - it's VERY affordable by the week - and I plan to rebook when I can. For the price and location, nothing else we looked at came close in terms of overall value - and we loved our time and the memories we made. Thank you Wendy!!!
This was a perfect location for my family to meet. We came from DC, Philly and CT. This was the perfect vacation rental! It was quiet, close to the beach ( you could not be closer) and had beyond beautiful scenes. The house was just what we needed. It was not fancy and but very clean and had everything we needed. We loved that not only could we go to the ocean beach ( in fact we could be "on" the beach from the decks), but we could also go across the street ( 2 short blocks) to the calmer bay beach.
There are great restaurants close by. One night we took a drive and went to the amusement park and another night we went to the light house.
We had a great vacation and it was the perfect spot. Upon leaving we immediately emailed the owners to reserve it for next year!
I wanted to like this rental, and it's true that the location and views are fabulous, especially from the second floor deck. However this unit is severely lacking in many areas. My wife and I have rented close to twenty homes on VRBO, Homeaway etc. over the past 10 years and almost all of them come properly equipped for a week's vacation. All properties can post great photos, have several positive reviews, and price the unit fairly. However I feel there are some basic things you should be able to expect when you pay more per night for a rental than you would at a nearby hotel.
Maybe it is more common for Jersey Shore rentals to provide the bare minimum in amenities for beach rentals, as we were visiting from the the West Coast, but I just don't think that the owners have put much effort in into keeping their rental comfortable and up to date for their visitors. As evidenced by:
For a beach house-
No beach chairs, umbrellas, or water toys available
No games or books for rainy days
No radio, stereo or ipod dock
No salt and pepper or any spices left behind by previous tenants if you choose to cook
No dish soap, dishwasher soap, laundry detergent paper towels, napkins etc
No hair dryer- at the beach!
Very old and poor selection of glasses, scratched teflon pots and pans (unhealthy)
The lounges & chairs on the top deck are white plastic, lacking cushions, and there is no umbrella
The unit is advertised to sleep 8 people and yet we had to make a special request to provide sheets and towels for all bedding
We were provided with a total of 4 bath towels and two beach towels
In summary, the location is terrific and the value prior to the start of the summer season was excellent for the location, just be prepared to bring all of your own supplies.
Other Activities: bird watching, star gazing, dolphins,fishing
