Breathtaking ocean and bay views and only steps to one of New Jersey's best beaches. Enjoy beautiful sunrises and sunsets on roof top deck. It's a short walk to many restaurants and attractions. Families can enjoy many activities such as miniature golf, amusement park, arcades, water park and of course many boating and fishing activities. Come and enjoy the Long Beach Island lifestyle.
IT'S ALL ABOUT THE WATER.........
LBI is an 18 mile barrier island with the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the beautiful Barnegat Bay on the other. The island is a 1/2 mile wide at it's widest and you are never far from the white sugar sand beaches or the serenity of sunsets on the bay.
IT'S ALL ABOUT FUN........
Spend your vacation relaxing on the beach or enjoying the fabulous restaurants and nightclubs. Catch a live performance at the Surflight Theater, LBI's answer to Broadway. Performances are scheduled year round. You can have fun all year on LBI. Ride bikes along our flat island roads, climb the steps to the top of Barnegat Lighthouse, shop at Bay Village or Viking village, go fishing off the bay or beach or spend a 1/2 day on a commercial fishing boat, or hang out a crab trap in the bay.
IT'S ALL ABOUT FAMILY........
Everyone loves the ocean but LBI also has some guarded bay beaches for the toddler set who are too young for big ocean waves. Learn to boogie board, surf, or kayak. Rent a boat or a wave runner. We even have kite boarding and parasailing. Collect sea glass along the beach or schedule a family beach portrait. Kids love the rides at Fantasy Island and Thundering Surf Water Park. There are plenty of arcades, lots of miniature golf, and everyone's favorite- ice cream!

Our multi- generational family vacation was wonderful in large part to this fabulous home. There is a huge amount of living space, including a family room AND a living room, both with flat screen tvs.
A few houses up from a great sandy beach, and a block and a half from restaurants and other conveniences. There was so much included that we hadn't expected - good quality and assortment of cookware, great dinnerware and flatware, plenty of chairs for rooftop deck, outdoor shower, and decorated with good taste and thought. Easy to get keys, and owner was available to answer a few questions. This is not s " typical" beach house, it's a step above! Highly likely to go back!
We really enjoyed our stay at the property. The house was beautiful and clean. The kitchen was spacious, the rooftop deck was enjoyable. If I was going to quibble I'd say the property could use some new larger flat screen TVs, which are pretty inexpensive these days. And a few of the doors didn't close right. Beyond that everything was great.
The house was nice and very close to the beach as advertised. I would have given it five stars based on the location and the overall quality of the house, but there were a few nagging issues, some of which might have been temporary and some of which seemed to be just a lack of maintenance. To start with the positives, the roof top deck was great and the walks to the beach and nice areas of Beach Haven were super easy.
Now this issues:
(1) When we arrived, the house had not been cleaned well enough from the last tenant. When you're paying this much for prime real estate, you expect a completely clean house to start your week.
(2) There were several maintenance issues that hadn't been tended to. The shower door would not close or lock. Several rails were loose on the stair bannister, a foot stool was broken, a closet door had come off its tracks, multiple light bulbs were burned out, and the freezer was incredibly slow to cool things down. Any one of these would be okay, but the number of issues that had gone untreated was somewhat of a surprise for us. To be fair, the owner (Mike) came out and fixed the shower door for us during the stay and removed a wasp nest, so that was nice of him.
(3) The wireless internet had strong signal, but was so slow that it was almost unusable. It took more than a minute to load a simple web page even though the signal was strong. It is possible that this was a Comcast issue, but it persisted all week and I basically had to use my phone (Verizon) as a mobile hot spot to have any internet access for my family rather than using the wireless internet I expected to use during my stay.
All in all, I would say that it's a nice house that could use a bit higher level of upkeep for the cost at which it's being rented out. I almost gave it three stars for that reason, but decided that on the whole my family had a nice week there and it is a nice property, so we stuck with 4 stars. I will say that I would be more likely to recommend this house to a younger and more flexible crowd without kids or grandparents in tow, because only the Internet issue would have driven me crazy when I was in my twenties with no kids.
The house: beautiful, clean, HUGE! We had tons of space, everyone loved the easy close walk to the beach, the rooftop deck and grill were awesome and so convenient. Only con is if you are older, have older guests, or trouble with stairs; as there are a lot but we did not mind, was great exercise for us. We will definitely rent here again.
The owner: did not meet personally but very easy to work with and get a hold of, extremely nice guy and very helpful.
The area: decent amount of parking, close to beach, few blocks from stores and other things to do. Honestly we loved the house we spent most of our time hanging out there and on the beach.
The house was beautiful, clean and well maintained. Very close from the beach and in a very peaceful area. Close from the water park, rides, restaurants and ice cream stores.
