About Brenda and Phil

Hi! Welcome to our house. We are Phil and Brenda and we are so excited to own this beautiful house on LBI. We have worked to make your stay as easy, enjoyable and fun as possible. We look forward to hearing from you and making your vacation on Long Beach Island one you will remember for a lifetime.

Brenda and Phil purchased this house in 2013

Why Brenda and Phil chose Long Beach Island

We love LBI and we have sat on the beautiful beach at 27th street for the last 20 summers. LBI is a great place to vacation so we decided to make the purchase of this home so that we can vacation here often and, hopefully, eventually live on LBI full time.

What makes this house unique

Ocean Side of the island. No streets to cross to get to the ocean. Many restaurants and bars in walking distance. Mini golf and ice cream within two blocks. Dock with fishing and crabbing pier across the street. Boat and kayak rental at fishing pier. Newer House. Nicely decorated. Beautiful kitchen. Close to many fun activities and restaurants/bars

Perfect Location & Layout

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of renting Brenda's house in LBI. It is very conveniently located in Ship Bottom and a very short walk from the beach. The layout of the house was perfect for our family. There was more than enough room for our family of 5 adults & 2 children. The weather was not great, but Brenda'a place more than made up for it. The kitchen is beautiful and very well-equipped. The open lay-out of the living room, kitchen, and dining area was great. The outdoor spaces were really nice also (though the weather made it hard to take advantage of). We also own 3 VRBO properties. Brenda was a pleasure to work with, and we highly recommend her beach house!

Immaculate Summer Home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home last summer and it was amazing! The house is immaculate with all the comforts (and some) of home and COMFORTABLY sleeps 10. The location is great--- Ship Bottom has been a long time family favorite!! The house is within short walking distance to the beach, mini-golf, ice cream, little shops, "Bagel Eddies" and of course "Oh-Fudge". I have been visiting Long Beach Island since I was a little girl and now for the past 14 years I've had the pleasure of taking of my children there. This house was great! The kids and the adults just absolutely loved it! Brenda and Phil were excellent also- They are local so for any issues or questions, they are readily available. I have already rebooked for next year and CAN'T WAIT! The only thing that could have made this trip better is being there for 2 weeks! This rental is highly recommended!

Awesome House

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights with 7 adults and 4 kids from 4 mos to 69 yrs. This house is BEAUTIFUL and we had a great time. It was our first visit to LBI and it was wonderful that Brenda & Phil rent this house for a couple nights for a little time period after the kids are out of school. It is nearly impossible to coordinate a week long vacation with all of the various schedules for different family members. We agree with everything the other renters said regarding the house and working with Brenda. I also have to mention the outside shower which was a gem and the long towel bars on the side of house for hanging wet items. We would rent this house again in a minute.

Relaxing family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house (Making Waves) in Ship Bottom as part of 3 stop, 10 day vacation to the east coast. The minute we walked in, we started to regret only renting the house for 5 days. It’s in perfect location just about a block from the beach or the bay.

This house is amazing. Bedrooms are nicely spread out and the master bedroom/bath is huge. Everything looks just as the pictures show. There were only 5 of us staying, so we all had plenty of room to spread out and relax. Looking at other houses to rent on LBI, you can beat the value of this house for how nice it is.

The house had everything you could possible need to live a normal day to day life. Just need to bring your own towels, paper products and food.

The owners were extremely easy to work with. Were quick to answer any questions we had leading up to our trip or while we were there. They made it feel like you were just renting a house from a friend. There is also a big binder in the house that tells you all about the house and things to do on the island. We were there during the slow time, so we just mainly relaxed on the quiet beach and made a day trip to Atlantic City (just a 45 min drive away).

If we ever get to get back to NJ, I will definitely be staying at Making Waves.

The Pics don't lie, home is beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Brenda was a delight to work with and very accommodating and quick to get back to me on my many questions. I rented for a family get together and baby shower off season, so didn't get to enjoy the island but will definitely try to rent for a true vacation and enjoy their very comfortable home.
