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 Oceanfront Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous oceanfront vacation home! Updated kitchen and bathrooms, spacious living room and dining room area. Owner is wonderful and always responds to questions in a timely manner. This was the most relaxing vacation that we have had on LBI, and we have been coming for over 25 years. You can't ask for a better location, and the beach in this area is spacious and private. Spent many hours lying in the hammock overlooking the ocean. Walkway to beach from house is easy to walk on for young and old alike. Perfect!!

This was our second stay at Donna and Paul's duplex on the beach at LBI. That says it all! Their beach rental has everything you'll need to for a relaxing and fun filled week. Donna and Paul are wonderful people going out of their way to accommodate in every way. The ocean was crystal clear and took some beautiful pictures on the beach. We truly appreciate all that you did for us and are looking forward to making more memories.

One Of The Best Rentals On LBI!!

  • 5 of 5

I have been renting homes on LBI for 35 years. I have never rented such a well equipped home. We brought stuff to use around the rental and never took them out. The location and the privacy of the beach was outstanding. On many occasions I would have the distance of 100 yds between myself and other person on the beach. Donna and Paul are gracious hosts and extremely easy to be around. All in all we will be renting again.

My daughters surprised me by renting this beach house as a 75th Birthday present. What a wonderful getaway. The beach house is located directly on the beach. The accommodations were more than adequate. The kitchen was fully equipped, the deck were spacious with great lounge chairs. The locations is perfect.

We had a Wonderful Week!!

Fantastic Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of seven, 4 adults and 3 children, had a memorable, relaxing and fun 2 week vacation in one of the best located beach houses on LBI. A short walk from your deck along a private beach entrance to an uncrowded beach. Almost like being on a private beach.

The condo had all the necessary amenities including a well equipped kitchen, TVs, great air conditioning and comfy deck furniture. The hosts were helpful and friendly.

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!
