Long Beach Island Oceanfront. Stunning ocean views with four levels of decks (2100 sqft) including a roof deck; 5 bedrooms, 5 full bathrooms, 2 zone central air conditioning, an oceanfront hot tub (on the main living level), and plenty of off-street parking (4 cars without double-parking). Three of the four upstairs bedrooms have en suite bathrooms. There is a hall bath for the bunk bedroom. The downstairs bedroom has an en suite bathroom. An outdoor shower off the dune deck provides a place to shower outdoors. All bedrooms have ceiling fans and flat screen TVs. There is a large flat screen TV in the living room.
Beach people will love being just steps from the beach and water. Don't like the beach? The decks provide both sun and shade with cooling breezes from the ocean without getting sand between your toes. The roof deck and upper deck provide plenty of room to enjoy the sun and the view. The lower deck off the living area has shaded and sunny areas. The large dune deck at ground level is shady all day long.
Inside, the large open living area provides both room for a large crowd to gather together as well as providing for separate areas to converse, play games, or read. The dining area provides plenty of room to gather for meals and you can still be part of the fun even while you are cooking in the open kitchen. A gas grill is available for use on the ground level.
The house is just steps from Pinky Shrimp's seafood market/restaurant, Joey's Pizza (best pizza on LBI), Kubels Two restaurant and package store. We are located about 1/2 mile north of the new, large Acme grocery store and Pinziminio's Italian restaurant. Bike and surfboard rentals are within easy walking distance as is the nearest ice cream shop. The rental price includes the use of 10 beach badges and wireless internet.

This is a great house for a family getaway at the beach.
Marlene and Chris grew up in South Jersey, went to Virginia Tech for our undergraduate degrees and received our masters degrees in Philadelphia. We have been renting out various properties since 1982 and renting properties at the Jersey Shore since 2003. We presently live in Moorestown, NJ.
We love this house because: 1) there is plenty of space in the large open living area to both be together and to have some separate space while still being close to the group activities, 2) the views! ... both while inside the house and outside on the decks, 3) the privacy and convenience of en suite bathrooms, 4) the setting is so peaceful ... we do our best sleeping and napping while staying at this house 5) the abundance of outdoor spaces ... both covered and open 6) the great views from the deck table, 7) eating meals on the deck table, 8) the short ride to the great, new Acme supermarket, 9) watching for shooting stars from the hot tub
All of the living spaces are designed so that it is comfortable and easy to gather as a large group (for instance for meals or happy hour), or to be in the same area but engaging in separate activities (for instance, playing games at the game table, reading in chairs by the window, and watching TV in the living room).
This was by far the best trip we've had to LBI. We saw dolphins and a baby seal. The house was a perfect fit ... we had dinner outside, relaxed in the hot tub, and enjoyed the view from the crow's nest. Awesome memories!
We visited LBI for Chowderfest weekend. Our first impression of the house was WOW! It is beautifully decorated, super clean and well stocked. Even with rain most of the weekend, the 12 of us found the house to be spacious and accommodating. There was room for group dinners, games and even our traditional vacation jigsaw puzzle (which we didn't finish although valiant effort was taken). The master suites overlooking the ocean provide breathtaking views. Chris was super friendly and easy to work with and gave us great, organized information for the use of the house and our exit. We would definitely go back again.
This was the perfect setting for our family vacation. Plenty of room for our 3 adult children and babies. Despite Tropical storm Hermine, we had plenty of space and gorgeous views. We did find that September is quiet on LBI, which we didn't mind at all, but many of the restaurants are closed or have shorter hours.
This is a beautiful property. The home has been well maintained and pride of ownership is clearly demonstrated. The kitchen is fully stocked and the downstairs floorplan is wonderful, with several separate seating and conversation areas. The house is spacious, permitting guests to break off into small groups and yet will also accomodate a large gathering for games and such. The views are wonderful. Chris is professional and responsive. In 10 years of renting at LBI this is the fist time I've received my damage deposit back within a week.
Being right on the beach is wonderful and this place is that! Our family of 4 [kids 11 and 9] shared the beach house with our friends, a family of 5 [kids 11, 9, 3]. The house is just as described. We had a wonderful time even if the weather didn't totally cooperate.......A cloudy day on the beach is better than a sunny day in the office!
Chris was easy to contact and answered all questions promptly.
I'd rent again.
Our whole family had not been together for several years when we all met up at 114 Surf Ave. None of us had ever been to New Jersey. (We came from Montana, Pittsburgh and DC.) We had a wonderful week together. The house was beautiful with plenty of room for all of our privacy. Dinners on the deck or in the dining room were a highlight with the ocean Right There! We did use the hot tub, usually in the morning. One morning our 5 year old grandson hopped in with myself and his uncle, sighed and said "This is the Life!"
The YouTube video accurately displayed the layout and features of the house and it was as nice as pictured. Kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pans, etc. Plenty of pillows and blankets.
Chris, the owner, was very prompt in answering emails and phone calls. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone planning to visit the Jersey Shore. We all had withdrawals when we had to leave and return to our homes!
Had a wonderful time with the family, 6 adults and 6 kids under 9. The rental was clean and had everything we could need for the stay. Since we were there in April it was a bit cold on the beach some of the time, but there was plenty of space and room in the house for the colder days. Chris was great to work with and very attentive and always available.
Beach Haven Crest is ideally located on beautiful Long Beach Island. Steps from the seafood market, pizza restaurant, bike and surf board rentals, and package goods store, and only 1/2 mile to the grocery store.
