Beach Haven House Rental Photos and Description

Spacious Open Plan Victorian - 5 Bedrooms 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

Located in Beach Haven’s lovely Historic District, a block to the beach and minutes from all restaurants and shops, this cottage is the ultimate beach house and is custom furnished by a local designer. The Ultimate Beach House is rented on a weekly basis in high season and a three-night minimum in the off-season, this 5-bedroom beach house is tastefully designed and appointed in keeping with the period of its neighboring Victorian Grande Dames.

The tastefully appointed house next door that has a capacity of 20 has just been completely remodeled. The two houses share a refined style and luxury class comfort. Combined, the "package rental" is perfect for a family reunion or wedding given its combined capacity of 30 persons. The adjoining properties package rental includes a spacious garden at 204 Coral and a large deck with pool at 210 Coral. Both houses have spacious common areas in which to celebrate with family and friends.

The Beach Haven Belle's style marries traditional and contemporary in a warm open plan that accommodates an extended family sharing in five spacious bedrooms and two distinct and spacious living spaces that flow seamlessly to the outdoor garden “room” behind the house. Three full baths, an open-plan kitchen, laundry room, outdoor bathhouse, and a detached garage complete this old-style beach house custom built for the most discerning of contemporary beachcombers.

Reclaimed wood plank walls, aged zinc counters, 100-year-old barn wood scraped red oak floors, an Aga gas range, retro light fixtures, and a sailboat and lighthouse bunk bed for kids combine to make this truly a one of a kind designer-built gem.

It has a full front porch, all new baths, custom cabinetry made from reclaimed wood and all new appointments hand-picked by the designer. Vintage restored original furniture pieces were collected from antique dealers in Hudson, New York and up and down the East Coast.

In the kitchen, plank walls stained and painted to simulate driftwood, period-style moldings, interior restored windows with original mullions came from a Virginia Farmhouse and traditional mullion, Dade-County-rated storm windows and glass doors are throughout the rest of the house, custom wooden cabinetry and a nautical staircase with semi-open risers were made by local artisans. The best of old and new typifies this stormproof beauty that is the perfect beach home for a large family or for those hoping to make memories with visiting extended family or friends.

Why Caroline Lechaux by email chose Long Beach Island

My husband grew up vacationing on Long Beach Island. He was a lifeguard on the island for seven years as a young man. When we married, I passed the 'causeway test', what every potential wife or husband has to go through before wedding. I fell in love with LBI and decided to renovate and work on the island doing beach house design.

What makes this house unique

The garden stands out as the most peaceful and beautiful place to both begin and end the days. I love the beautiful views from both master bedrooms, the one-block-away amazing beach and access to all the town has to offer by foot. I especially love that Pearl Street Market is around the corner. It's a great place for socializing. The beach up the street is one of the nicest you an find on the East Coast.

Next door, a 20-capacity home is available for rent. Combined, the package rental of the adjoining properties is perfect for a 30 person family reunion or wedding.

Beach Haven in the Palm of Your Hand

  • 5 of 5

Once again, we greatly enjoyed our stay at this property in the heart of Beach Haven. It's hard to imagine a more perfect location: a block from the beach, a block from from restaurants, mini-golf, ice cream shops, the incredible Pearl Street Market, tennis courts, baseball/LAX fields, surf shop, and bike/board rentals. Venture over another block and it's Murphy's grocery store, and the all that Beach Haven has to offer for restaurants (The Oyster Bar, The Black Whale, Buckalew's, etc.) and shops such as How to Live. Having three teenagers and a tween, there is no shortage of things to keep them busy that are also very close by. That makes for a much more enjoyable vacation for the parents, too. That being said, we've had a number of visitor come in and say, "this beach house would be perfect for a girls' getaway." Agreed. But I think it has appeal for just about any family or group. But if you don't want to move an inch, this beach house is an absolute beautiful, one-of-a-kind property with a restful back patio to lounge in or have a family meal.The bedrooms are spacious with ceiling fans and large beds. The design throughout the house is so appealing: sort of a French country living meets the Shore. In the evening, it all looks a bit magical with the special lighting elements. Everything you need is there, including beach badges and beach chairs for all. The neighboring homes are also quite nice, and so it has a quiet small town America feel to the block, yet it is just a few blocks from the very center of the Beach Haven nightlife. Moreover, the property owner is always attentive, prompt, and easy to work with. It's been a pleasure. After staying here two summers in a row (and having stayed in many other homes in Beach Haven, Harvey Cedars, and Surf City over the years), I can't imagine a better spot to enjoy LBI. Until next year, Beach Haven...

Beautiful, functional and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my kids, significant other, father and mother. The property was beautiful, large enough to accommodate everyone, and very relaxing. While the kitchen could have had more room for utensils and kitchen tools, this was really the only issue we had. We will definitely put this home on our short list when we return in a few years (although we might try to find something a bit less expensive first).

Dream wedding

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home where our wedding ceremony was held and the home inside and out made the wedding photos turn out incredible. The home is clean and extremely lovely, while the owner went over and beyond to be accommodating. My wedding was xtra beautiful just because of the home. Thank you sooooo much!
