About the property

4 Bedroom / 3 Bathroom / Sleeps 8 -10. Sunday turnover.

Just three houses from the beach, this beautiful contemporary is nestled on a private lane in a secluded, garden-like setting. Easy beach access (40 second walk) with no streets to cross make this an ideal Long Beach Island summer family rental. Located on one of LBI's most beautiful beaches (only private access) and close to the Sunset Park and playground where they offer weekly concerts and exercise classes over the summer.

Enjoy raised-level living designed to catch the ocean breezes and the Barnegat Bay sunsets. The home has three decks including a large rooftop deck with panoramic Long Beach Island bay views. A second deck off the master suite and game room provides a quiet getaway where one can hear the ocean waves. The third deck off main floor provides ample space for dining, relaxing and entertaining.

The master and junior suites have attached full bathrooms, while the two twin bedrooms share a full bathroom. Home also has a spacious outside shower with dressing area. An upstairs loft style den area with wet bar with mini fridge, provides added space for watching TV, game playing and family fun. There is also an additional table with 4 chairs if someone has to work :(

The master suite boasts a 'pillow top' mattress and all bedrooms are equipped with comforters, extra blankets and lots of pillows. The kitchen is well stocked for family dining and entertaining needs.

Renovations were done in the past 2 years. In 2016, all new flooring was installed in the living area/kitchen and new carpets in the bedrooms. The LR was updated with a new couch and other accessories and the master BR furniture was replaced. The kitchen was updated with new cabinets and granite counter tops as well as an expanded island counter. In 2017, we installed all new siding and windows. Also new bed linens in the twin and master BR. We just finished installed all new decking!

About Phyllis Carile

We are from NY and our family had rented at the NJ shore for many summers and we always wanted a home of our own. We made it happen and we want other families to experience the joy we had when our children were younger.

Phyllis Carile purchased this house in 2014

Why Phyllis Carile chose Harvey Cedars

It is secluded on a private lane with EASY access to the beach. A park for children is very close by for 'after-beach' fun!

What makes this house unique

This home is perfect for the extended family. Parents (or grandparents!) have their own master suite upstairs, while another adult couple can enjoy a mini-suite on the main floor and the children have their own bath. A lot of privacy! Three decks also allow for a lot of space and views.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We brought our in-laws with us this year so we could spend some quality time with them. We all had a nice time in a comfortable and spacious home. It has a lot of very nice features, including the location which is close to the beach and quiet.

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family vacation here! This home is very comfortable, clean and close to the beach! It had everything we needed to spend time together. Loved the decks! Phyllis made sure we had everything we needed.

This year was our 4th time renting a house on Long Beach Island since 2012 and Phyllis and Ray's property, this year, was the best by far. Great open floor plan, workable kitchen, very clean, and just overall cozy and very comfortable. In the past we have only rented ocean front but with the build up of the protective dune system, that first waterfront location is no longer necessary for a great experience. With two Standard Poodles in the family, the size of the yard around this house, (although not fenced) is very welcome and the outside shower with plenty of hot water makes it very easy for all of us to enter the house sand free. Harvey Cedars is a wonderful location on the island, more sedate than the southern communities but a short drive to all amenities. As a real estate broker and architect couple we can attest to the owners' professionalism and warmly welcoming management of their property. The Carile property will continue to be our choice whenever we return to LBI.

Excellent Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

My family of 6 adults and 3 children, ages 3 and under, rented this home for our first family trip to the Jersey Shore. The weather was great, always a plus, and the home was perfect for us. It is very close to the private beach which is important with little ones. The owner, Phyllis, is extremely easy to work with and responds immediately when she is contacted.

Every bedroom has a bathroom which makes it easier and more efficient for all guests. The home is extremely clean and the beds were comfortable. The deck off the kitchen is perfect for family meals. We grilled out almost every night and enjoyed dinner on the deck and breakfast as well. I do think the grill could use new grates, as the grates were rusting, uneven on one side and unsightly, even though they were cleaned.

The kitchen is fully stocked with many dishes and probably any pot or pan you would need. It would have been helpful to have a small amount of necessary basic supplies on hand upon arrival. We were caught by surprise when there were no trash liners, no dishwasher soap and no laundry detergent. However, since this was our first rental at the Jersey Shore, maybe this is the norm for rentals.

Would I rent this home again? Yes, definitely.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a terrific week in Harvey Cedars. The home was very well represented by the listing. It was clean, comfy, and perfectly situated near the beach on a private lane. We had everything we needed at the house--just brought the sheets and towels! Phyllis and Ray made the booking process so easy and comfortable, and provided spot-on recommendations for places to eat. Highly recommended for your stay!

Love the house!

  • 5 of 5

The Carlie's are lovely people who really care about your stay at their home. They have made some nice upgrades to the home. I love the house, the view of the bay, and it's close to the beach. We always have a good time there. I would recommend this home for vacation, but then I'd be afraid I wouldn't have access to it!! LOL!!

Great week away!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I had a great relaxing weekend with family at this house. Beach is clean, huge, not crowded, and a minute walk from the door. House is cozy while still being spacious enough for everyone to have their own quiet area to relax if they want. Deck is perfect for a BBQ and there's nothing like sitting on the roof deck at the end of the night! VERY close drive to restaurants/shops/etc but far enough away that you don't have to worry about excessive crowds. Phyllis was quick to reply with any questions or concerns we had. Overall great experience - will definitely be back again next year to enjoy the new renovations!
