Perfect in Every Way!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I brought our teenage daughter and son and their friends to this house for a 5 night stay and we all had an amazing time!! The house was well kept and definitely worked out well for the 7 of us. The king sized bed in the large master bedroom was a treat, and we loved the little loft on the 2nd floor where the kids could hang out and watch tv, while my husband and I hung out in the air conditioned living room. The location is beyond awesome! The kids were able to walk to the shops and restaurants, and the two 15 year old boys skateboarded to the arcade. There's so much to do in the area! Besides the bay with it's gorgeous sunsets, the ocean side provides ample fun for everyone!! We also did a sunset cruise, and the girls parasailed, shopped, and rented a surrey. The boys had a blast at the water park in Beach Haven! I highly recommend this property without reservation. The owners were so pleasant to work with and very accommodating. You couldn't ask for a better house for the price and for all the amenities that come with it.

Family Friendly with Perfect Proximity

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent 6 days at this home in June and we’re hoping for the opportunity to go back next summer. The house was perfectly located; equidistant between the bay beach and the ocean, an easy walk even for our two young girls. When the ocean was overwhelming for them, the bay beach was an ideal option. Guarded, quiet and calm waves ideal for young kids. We found the home itself very comfortable. The kitchen was well appointed with all necessities and the bedrooms were both spacious and private. It was only the four of us, but the home could easily have accommodated more. The weather was cooperative most of the time so we often ate outdoors, but even on rainy days we were still able to grill in the garage. The streets were quiet as well so we never had to concern ourselves with noisy traffic. Now we’re all looking forward to going back.

Beautfill week with family.

  • 3 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time this year 2015.We were not happy renting the house.The house wasn't cleaned when we arrived at the house.Oh though the house had been sprayed with some kind of cleaner thinking that the house had been cleaned. The trash & recycle in the kitchen were filthy,we had to clean them before we could even use them.Pot & pans are old. Silverware & some dishes were dirty,The cover on the sofa smelled so bad, that we washed it & hung it outside.One day the stove was smoking while we cooking, one smoke alarm didn't have a battier. That was very upsetting to know that when you have kids in the house.The bedroom with the king size bed. The door had been broken in the pass. Tape was in the door . I got lock in the room for 1/2hr. Had to use cell phone to call me husband form down stairs.Glass door, It took three guys to get the door off.Someone noticed how dirty the ceiling fan was, right above the table to eat. It was filthy.We cleaned that too. Kitchen & bathroom floors didn't look like they were even clean before we got their, the mop was so dirty. Our family had a wonderful AT LBI. Well not be staying at this house again. Doran's

Spacious bedrroms

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay! Very cute home. Enjoyed the closeness of the bay and the easy walk to the beach. The upstairs of the home is huge. Great house for a family of four and extended family!

Adorable house in great location!

  • 5 of 5

My family along with my brother's family at the last minute rented this lovely home in a super convenient location. The owner is very responsive, the house is well-stocked, clean and spacious. My son and nephew always enjoy the ocean but being close to the bay with a playground and swimming area that is supervised by a lifeguard was a huge plus. Thank you again for accommodating us, our stay was so much more enjoyable than a hotel would have been!

A retreat after a family wedding

  • 5 of 5

This was just the place to spend time to unwind and relax after a wedding. I swear I could hear the ocean at night. There is a wonderful swimming beach on the bay side and the ocean is a short, easy two block walk. The kitchen had everything you could need and there is a grocery store nearby. We opened all of the windows for the breezes and didn’t need the air conditioning for our time here. Restaurants and shops are plentiful and all within walking distance. I got my beach fix in this cute cottage. What fun!
