About Donna Boehringer

My husband, Paul, worked in hospital administration and is newly retired. We are recently empty nesters! My daughter moved to Wisconsin for her first job and my son is currently in college. We love the beach and try to get to the beach as much as we can! I love that LBI is like living back in the 60's. My kids when they were growing up used to get on their bikes in the morning and take off with friends to hit the beach or do other fun shore things. Often, I wouldn't see them until 10 pm that night!

Donna Boehringer purchased this condo in 1999

Why Donna Boehringer chose Long Beach Island

Both my husband and I were always dying for a beach house (oceanfront duplex to be exact!) We purchased our wonderful house in 1999. Being from the Philadelphia Area, we used to go more south to the beach and never really knew much about LBI. When we started looking someone recommended that we check out LBI. We did, we fell in love! After buying the house and experiencing LBI we wouldn't go anywhere else!

We fell in love with this house as soon as we saw it, and very unlike us (my husband will research buying a toaster in detail!) we made an offer on the house the next day and haven't looked back!

We loved the private access to the beach, the beach itself is fabulous and it has unbelievable decks! Plus it has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths on each floor and great outdoor showers. Basically it was designed great! We did have work to do though. It didn't have air. Central Air was our first major enhancement to the house. We also added gas heat, which allowed us to put in natural gas grills. The next major project was replacing the kitchens (granite and stainless appliances) and updated the bathrooms. Most recently we replaced the siding on the house and replaced all the sliding glass doors (12 in total - 6 on each floor!), while we were at it we also completely redid the outside showers, they're done completely in plastic wood so they are easy to sanitize and clean! Our guests actually love the showers so much they prefer showering outside rather than inside!

What makes this condo unique

We are lucky to have a private walkway to the beach, which makes running back and forth, even for little ones - so easy!

The decks are absolutely fabulous! And we have great deck furniture, tables chairs and lounges. We have lighting so you can even spend time on the deck even at night!

The house has fabulous windows and light availablility. There are 4 sets of sliding glass door in living/dining area along with another bank of windows. 2 of the bedrooms have sliding glass doors that access the deck and the 3rd bedroom has two windows.

As noted above, we pride ourselves in keeping our house in great working order and making it as comfortable for our guests as we can. We leave our address and email address at the house and ask for feedback and suggestions. Through the years we implemented many suggestions, including adding outside lighting on the deck on the first floor, adding a ceiling fan, adding internet access and many other items!

Our house is on the narrowest street on the island - only 2 blocks wide (approximately 10 houses wide.)

Because it's only two blocks wide our beach is never crowded even during peak summer weeks!

There's great bay access just down the street and we are within walking distance to Sunset Park which has free concerts every Wednesday during the summer. The park also has a great playground, ball field, tennis court and bay access for boating and crabbing.

LBI has fabulous restaurants to suit every taste.

Perfect Beach Vacation House!

  • 5 of 5

We have chosen this house for our summer vacation four times! It has now become a family tradition. We have a large family and it is the perfect size for us. The location is amazing and the beach is beautiful. The owners, Donna and Paul, are so welcoming and they always make sure the house is in perfect condition. We hope to return for many years to come!

Excellent Getaway Place...

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying here and it just gets better. The place is beautiful in a great location with a private path to the thisclose beach. It was clean and the kitchen was stocked with any utensil you would need. We had friends & family come down and they were all very impressed. The owners are friendly and just want happy renters. They succeeded.

Just what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a place for a week that we could "get away" and we found it! This was perfect on the beach! great outdoor areas. the bedrooms are all in the back so you can visit and not have to be quiet when the kids are asleep at night. Great set up. loved it. Thanks Donna and Paul. The owners are very receptive and want to make sure you have the best time.

Excellent Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our wonderful vacation from June 27th to July 4th, 2015. Our children and (3) grandchildren (ages 2 to 4) traveled with us. The 1st floor is absolutely the right choice if you are traveling with children, older people, people with disabilities or you just don't feel like doing the steps. We had a great time, great beach access, awesome wrap around porch with full size grill, you really have no reason to leave the house b/c everything is there. The house was very clean, wrap around windows/sliding glass doors. Everything you want is nearby; seafood, restaurants, park, bay, amusements. I packed a lot of kitchen gadgets I didn't need b/c the house was well stocked. We had such a wonderful time that we booked for next year. I rate this family vacation as an excellent choice. My grown children agree and we are excited for next year!! thank you to the owners of this house!

The Perfect Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have been spending family vacations at the beach for the last five years on LBI. We particularly enjoy the quieter north end of the island and have rented at Barnegat Light and Harvey Cedars. Well, we have FINALLY found the best of both housing and location! Our family consists of four generations, from my 95 year old mother to my 6 year old granddaughter--this rental was terrific for everyone. Just steps from the beach and wraparound covered decks for multi-generational activities (dining, reading, playing games, etc). We practically lived on the decks as there was always a warm breeze and protection from the hot sun. I never used the indoor shower as the outdoor was was so clean and convenient. Overall the house was very clean and well stocked. I highly recommend this rental property and hope to be able to return.

Beautiful, convenient, and so relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to LBI and we can't wait to go back! It was a pretty easy drive from NYC. The location of this condo is perfect...literally right on a gorgeous beach on the quieter end of the island. We have a toddler and it was so nice to be able to make quick trips back and forth from the beach to the house for snacks, naps, extra gear, etc. The layout of the place is great for families with young kids. Everything inside the house is clean and nice, but simple -- I never had to worry that my curious toddler was going to hurt herself or ruin some expensive artifact. Another plus that I didn't fully realize from the pictures is that the outdoor deck is huge. It wraps around 3 sides of the house. After our daughter would go to bed at night we would go sit out on the deck with a bottle of wine, watch the stars, and listen to the waves crashing. It was so relaxing! I also agree with everything everyone else said about the owners. They are so nice and so responsive. Donna responded immediately to all of my questions and gave me great advice on places to go and things to do on LBI.

The shuttle runs all day and most of the night. You hop on at the top of our street and will take you wherever you want to go! When you're ready to come home, just catch the shuttle and it drops you off at the top of our street!
