Grand Ole Rooftop Deck: The 4th floor rooftop deck gives you the opportunity to tune out the world and relax. The hot tub will melt away the worries and let the good times sink in. Panoramic views of the island and surrounding towns over the bridge twinkle at night. You can see Old Barney's Light blimp on the left, the bridge rails glow, and to the right the ferris wheel at Bay Village Schooners Wharf, along with Atlantic City's Outline and shimmering lit Borgota that changes color every few minutes and daily change of patterns. The 4th of July is a splendid sight with all the fireworks being at a safe distance away, without all the heart stopping booms. It's nice to have room to sit in comfort and have a cocktail while visiting on the deck when watching the fireworks and the little ones excitement! Plan your BBQ with friends and dine in the back yard with the 2 large tables and bench seating, and butcher block. If you bring your own bikes we have a bike rack, and the clothesline is out back also.
What to bring?: If you have bikes bring them, if it's too much to carry, rent down the street. If you like to fish, bring your gear, or just walk up to the bait shop and buy some new presents for your crew to remember your trip. We have some beach chairs and umbrellas for your use and also boogie boards and a skim board. The surf shop carries all these items also if you need more or want some other options. We have a toy box with sand toys, trucks, and other items to make the beach trip fun for the little ones without packing your stuff from home. No matter what weather pack those bathing suits year round, the hot tub is on the rooftop deck 4 stories up and the views are amazingly soothing. A hot tub certainly takes the sting out of a cloudy rainy day for sure. The house has several movies rated from G to R for your watching pleasure, and a few games for a play station if you bring your set up. For those kids on the rainy days we have games, books,cards and puzzles to entertain them.

Country Kettle Fudge should satisfy your sweet tooth, and Thundering Surf is fun for all ages with tubing down the lazy river, tubing shoots, a kiddie water playground, a huge mini golf on a 'mountain',and lots of food and drinks to keep you going. Take a bucket a net up to the Bayview park and let the little ones find all the creatures in the sea, this is fun!

This is a great place for kids of all ages. Our street is family oriented, slow paced dead end for bikes and playing in the street. Surf shop, candy, toys, ice cream, pizza, and a bait and tackle close by for the kids to walk around safely and enjoy themselves if old enough to be on their own. We are a surfing beach so there are lessons daily if they want to learn how to surf, skim board, stand up paddle board, or kayak. The bay beach is a few blocks away and is soooo much fun with a seining net (long net that 2 people walk with and drag on the seas floor). My husband and I and our kids, nieces and nephews, tenants, and neighborhood kids have spent hours doing this, it is amazing the sea life we have found!

My Husband Tom and I and 2 of 4 daughters live here in a lock out part of the home. LBI is such a wonderful place to raise a family, and have a small town life, with a fast paced summer to enjoy. We enjoy meeting new people and sharing our home and love of LBI to long time renters to LBI and showing Newbies to the Island the why it is such a hot spot year round now. Tom and I have grown up on the island in the summer months and moved down full time in 2006. We got married on our beach and it has been bliss ever since.

Year Purchased: 1957
About the owner: My husband Tom and I both grew up on LBI in the summers. We lived next door to each other until age 10. After 30 years we reconnected at age 40! We have raised 4 daughters here and were married on our beach. We married in 2006 bought my familys home and renovated so we could share LBI with others.
Why the Owner Chose Beach Haven Crest:
We purposely built the house to having several places to spread out in different living areas, or gather in one spot, indoors and outdoors. This helps with multi- generational families. We love introducing new visitors to the island and showing them the ropes. We also have a great connection with people who have been coming to LBI and our home year after year. We also welcome groups for retreats. We have retreat groups in the months of Sept.-June. We are currently looking for more retreat leaders to fill some weekends with their offerings. If interested please contact me. We look for all kinds of groups: Ladies, Men’s, Artists, Holistic, Spiritual, Healthy Ways, Networking, Business, and more. We opened the LBI GeoTrail Nov. 2013 ask me about Geocaching! The kids will love it, and it is a great thing to do on those cloudy days!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I do milestone event planning: birthdays, anniversaries, repass, christenings, rehearsal dinners, cocktail parties, diner parties, brunches, continental breakfasts and more. If you are planning to have an event please let me know if you need my services. Many homes do not allow parties at their homes on LBI, but there is a need and we have had great success with entertaining for our visitors and have enjoyed their reunion type gatherings. We book for wedding stays and bachelorette weekends. Having raised 4 daughters we have a great understanding of what parents wants and needs are while down on LBI. We suggest what going on for the kids as well as the adults and provide coupons, maps, and brochures for the areas offerings. Sunny days and raining days we have the answers on what to do.
