About Elaine

Our family have been coming to the Jersey Shore for our entire lives. My husband and I are retired school teachers. My children and I enjoyed our shore house while my husband joined us on the weekends because of a summer job in North Jersey. My children just loved spending their summers at the Shore. It was a wonderful experience for them and they have happy memories of those times. Now, the next generation of our family is enjoying our home in Surf City.

Elaine purchased this apartment in 1986

The shore house was perfect for my young family.

  • 5 of 5

The shore house was perfect for my young growing family. It had the space we were looking for and was updated and clean. The beach is very close and even with two kids under the age of three we had no issues getting to the beach and back again. The house had everything we could hope for, with the gas grill on the porch and in walking distance to many restaurants and attractions (although maybe too close to an ice cream shop were we visited each night). Our favorite spot was the porch where we sat and watched the sun sets in addition to eating breakfast. The near by park were an added benefit. I definitely plan on vacationing again at the shore house as it is exactly what we were looking for an in a great location in Surf City.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to have this young family stay at our shore house. We are hoping they will stay and enjoy our home again this summer. I do remember when our children were young, we did spend lots of time in the ice cream shop among other place close to our home. Thanks, Craig, for taking the time from your busy day to write a review. Elaine

Two wonderful summers!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four spent two wonderful summers in this fabulous apartment and we couldn't have asked for a more comfortable and convenient place to call our summer home! We rented the summer of 2015 for 6 weeks and the summer of 2016 for 5 weeks and really appreciated the spacious layout as well as all of the amenities and conveniences. Everything was just as pictured/described and immaculately clean upon arrival; all appliances were in excellent working condition. This year the kitchen was completely renovated and now includes a dishwasher, a new stove and fridge as well as lovely new countertops and cabinets. Our kids loved lounging on the huge sectional couch which is large enough for a guest to sleep on and well enjoyed by all. The new smart TV was also a fabulous new addition in 2016. The bathroom has been nicely renovated and the outdoor shower is just great - very clean and a wonderful convenience after a day at the beach. The bedrooms are spacious and the washer and drier were great. We BBQ'd nearly every night - thanks both to the great grill and the close proximity to Okie's and Broadway Clams. Maybe the best part of the experience was the deck with view of the bay - a wonderful spot to watch the sunset and enjoy the cool evening breeze. The owner is just wonderful - this is truly their treasured summer retreat and their pride and enjoyment of the home really shows. They were always available to answer questions and were a joy to work with.

This apartment was a real "find" for us, perfectly situated in our favorite LBI town. Couldn't have asked for a better experience!!

A Relaxing Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I were invited to attend a Beach Wedding and decided to make it an extra long weekend. We arrived later Thursday night so to start a fresh day at the beach on Friday. Weather didn't cooperate as we would have liked but with other friends in the area, we were able to meet up and spend some quality time.

The second floor apartment is bigger than a lot of the shore houses we have stayed at in the past and by far one of the most accommodating and clean. We are definitely thinking of future dates and the opportunity to share with our family and friends in this amazing location.

Thanks, Elaine, for answering my emails and extending our stay with last minute changes.

Great place to stay for our family!

  • 5 of 5

Our little vacation clan consisted of four adults, a four-year old and a two-year old. At the time only one of the adults had a job, so we needed something affordable if our vacation plans could work. This place was perfect for our purposes! It was clean and in good condition, had all the amenities we needed and was in a fantastic location. All for a very reasonable price.

It was a short bike ride to a wonderful little park where we took the kids daily. We also only had a short walk to the beach where we spent most days in the sand and surf. It's easily within biking distance of many restaurants, ice cream places and the famous Surf City 5 & 10. It's just down the block from a bike shop too, which we frequented due to needing a rental and needing last-minute repairs on two (!) of our existing bikes. But that's another story!

The location is very close to the entrance to the island, making getting on and off a breeze. We couldn't believe how fast we arrived!

Elaine, the owner, was also responsive and helpful before and during our trip when we had a few questions.

I'd definitely recommend this place and plan to rent it again next time we visit LBI.

A perfect week on LBI!

  • 5 of 5

My Wife and I stayed here the second week of September. This shore home is exactly as the posting states it is clean comfortable very well equipped. If you are not familiar with the area the house is in Surf City located just north of the causeway that allows access to LBI. The northern side is also quieter than the southern end of the island. Once you arrive there is really no reason to take your car out again you are in walking distance from anything you could possibly want. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would stay here again next year if available.

September in Surf City 2012

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I rented this unit for the last week in September. We were extremely satisfied with the decor and amenities. All appliances were in good order and there were plenty of kitchen items for every need. Living room and bedrooms were all clean and comfortable. The washer and dryer were very convenient.

I have spent many years renting at the shore and this rental was one of the most comfortable I have stayed in. The proximity to the bay and beach were perfect. We had great weather, went biking, took nice walks around the neighborhood and enjoyed the beach every day.

If available, we will rent here again next year.

Our beach home is located 1 block from the bay beach and walking distance (three short blocks) to the ocean beach. This part of Surf City is just 4 blocks wide. The ocean beach is just beautiful and you can enjoy so many activities such as: swimming, riding the waves, walking, or just sitting and relaxing as well as experiencing the natural beauty of the ocean. The bay beach is perfect for young children to have fun in the water and there is a playground for their entertainment. From our deck, you have a view of the Barnegat Bay. Nearby ,there is an ice cream shop, Italian deli, and other quaint shops for your convenience. The town features a variety of family and fine dining restaurants, stores, and a miniature golf course. All activities are of walking distance from our home. Just park the car on our property, you can walk around the town and enjoy. Just a short ride, you can enjoy an arcade in Ship Bottom and additional miniature golf courses for great family fun. In addition, the town of Beach Haven is a short ride where you can enjoy an amusement and a water park.
