About JoAnn Patrick-Ezzell
My wife, JoAnn, and I reside in Sarasota, FL and rent our LBI home in June, July, August and September. We both worked at AT&T and Bell Laboratories in New Jersey before taking positions with AT&T and Lucent Technologies in the Asia/Pacific Region while living in Hong Kong.
JoAnn Patrick-Ezzell purchased this House in 1994
Why JoAnn Patrick-Ezzell chose Brant Beach
We bought our ocean front home in Brant Beach, NJ because it was near our residence in Berkeley Heights, NJ. At the time we both worked at AT&T and used our LBI home on weekends and for vacations until AT&T assigned us to jobs in Hong Kong for 7 years. When we returned to the US, we moved to Sarasota, FL. We still have family and friends in and around NJ and use LBI as a family gathering place.

we loved this home and will definitely come back. the best we have had in many years at LBI.
this is a house that felt like a home, from the beautiful art work throughout to a kitchen that has everything necessary to cook and serve for a family or a dinner party. the bedrooms are all spacious, plenty of closet room. there was even an empty cupboard for our groceries in the kitchen.
the great room is terrific with 3 walls of glass and sliding doors that gave us an 180 degree beach and ocean view. the upper deck is really special because it has shaded areas as well full sun. the lower deck is spacious, there is plenty of room between it and the dune, so it is bright and airy. the outdoor shower is also airy and comfortable.
altogether there was nothing I would change or add.
Amazing Ocean Front Home
We spent a week in August 2015 at this impeccably maintained ocean front home. The layout was perfect for two families, with four children. The large living/kitchen area made entertaining a large group especially easy. The views and setting cannot be beat, with wrap around decks and unobstructed views of the ocean. The owners were responsive before, during and after our visit and made sure that we had everything that we needed for a wonderful week. We plan to return to this special home for years to come!
A Spectacular Retreat!
Our family has spent three weeks at this breathtaking retreat right on the ocean for the past fifteen years. The rooms are spacious and the views are outstanding. Three of the four bedrooms share a large deck on the lower level facing the ocean. The open concept upstairs has a large kitchen and living room and dining areas with all glass sliders overlooking the ocean. The house has pretty much everything you need to cook, bake, entertain, etc. The owners have always been accessible for questions or concerns and the property is well-maintained. The location is perfect, in the middle of Long Beach Island; minutes from good restaurants and access to the bridge. A wonderful place to spend a week!
Perfect Oceanfront home!
I think this might have been our 7th stay in this beautiful home! Each visit has been perfect! The house is extremely clean and the kitchen is well equipped for cooking gourmet meals, should you choose. I love the layout of this home---very open public spaces, make it ideal for reconnecting with family as you enjoy the ocean front views. The owners are extremely welcoming and accommodating. They have always phoned us after our arrival to ensure everything is in perfect order. I love the Brant Beach location too, it's the best! You won't be disappointed with this vacation rental.
A vacation with all the conveniences of home.
This vacation took much planning coordinating family members from both the east and west coast and it could not have been better. Andrew was most accommodating answering all our concerns. The layout and size of the house is perfect for multiple families and of course the access to the beach is ideal. Because the owners actually live there every possible convenience is supplied including the extra refrigerator in the garage which is most helpful. Although we brought two bikes, the owner had several for others to enjoy. The house is super neat and clean and it was a real pleasure to have this vacation...a rare opportunity with our bi costal family...in this outstanding home.
