We are a family of five who rents our vacation home several weeks during the summer to help offset the expenses.
The Owner purchased this house in 1992
The north end of Long Beach Island is far less commercial and crowded than the southern half. It is family oriented and is an excellent place to vacation with our three children. There is a variety of activities ranging from swimming, kayaking, sailing, fishing, crabbing, etc to keep everyone busy.
Our family of 6 (4 adults and 2 children) had the most wonderful week at Long Beach Island. This home is beautiful and comfortable. The outdoor shower was the absolute hit for us all - incredibly convenient. And the supply of just about everything (including toys, games, beach supplies etc for the kids) was very generous. The ease and convenience of a week in your home is remarkable — and of course the beach is exceptional: beautiful, wide, clean and right there.
It’s a great house and we are hoping that we will be able to spend future summer weeks at your home on LBI.
We have been renting homes at LBI for more than 20 years and this one is the best we've found. I concur in all of the praises given in other reviews: comfortable, roomy, fully equipped, easy to keep clean, wonderful support from owner. In addition to being the briefest of walks to the beach, it still provides great privacy and is also a short walk to a fabulous grocery/market and two top-flight restaurants. And, come sundown, you are a few short blocks from the bay so you can enjoy the light show.
We stayed at this house during our first trip to LBI & loved it. It was steps from the beach, felt large & comfortable & the kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed. The house is decorated very nicely, was easy to keep clean & is well-kept. Our favorite part of the house was the deck where we enjoyed the view, breeze & beautiful sunrise every morning. The location is quiet but walking distance to the market, ice cream parlor & a few restaurants. The owners were generous & responded very quickly to our questions. We would definitely stay here again & highly recommend.
The owners of this house are extremely accommodating and were very responsive to our emails prior to renting and our requests during our stay. They overnighted an umbrella that had been broken by the previous tenants and helped us get the awning working when the circuit breaker blew, etc.
- location: on a beautiful beach right in front of lifeguard stand
- walk to deli, liquor, food, bar, ice cream, bay sunset watching
- spacious living space upstairs and deck
- well stocked house with linens, towels, some beach chairs (not great), kitchen supplies (could have used a platter or two for serving and a pitcher)
- rooms were nice, beds pretty comfortable
- deck furniture comfortable
- good bbq
- good outdoor shower
- not sure a/c would have been adequate in the master upstairs bedroom if it was really hot. Livingroom has a separate unit to make up for poor forced air ducts, but master doesn't. It wasn't very hot during our week.
- Dining table outside wasn't big enough for all of us (7), so we ate inside most nights.
We would rent this place again. It's not fancy, but was an easy, beautiful place to be.
Thanks to the owners for being so accommodating and just plain nice!
