  • Beautiful Sunsets and Much More

    "Location, location, location...for our family this has been the perfect spot for our annual summer get-together. The listing photos give a true picture of this bay front home. The property is clean, well maintained and supplied with everything you will need to make for a pleasant vacation. Our two young grand children have enjoyed their morning walks on the beach and stroller rides in the evening at sunset. The area is very family friendly and not crowded. There are many nearby attractions and restaurants for all age groups. The owners have many helpful recommendations that we have taken advantage of on our stays. We would highly recommend this property for a vacation stay."

  • Wonderful family vacation!

    "We absolutely loved the cottage and the beautiful accomodations! The dogs LOVED the fenced in yard and we loved the proximity to the dog park and all the things Barnegat Light has to offer. The beach and bay are an easy 5 minute walk, and the tractor tram was great getting to and from the beach area. We thank you for your gracious hospitality and assistance. For any family with small children and/or dogs looking for a perfect vacation house that is beautifully updated and immaculate, near the beach and bay yet set in a tranquil setting, this is the house! We will definitely be back (for 2 weeks!) next summer- Thanks so much again!"

  • Beautiful Home

    "We had a terrific stay on Lady Bug Lane. I almost want to keep it a secret. Mel did a fantastic job making the house comfortable and beautiful. It was spotless. The outside deck was spacious with plenty of seating. The walk to the beach was easy, even with kids. Mel provided us with beach chairs, sand toys, a wagon and a cooler on wheels. We absolutely loved our stay and hope to return."

  • Perfect house for our family!

    "My family of 3 just got home from our week stay in the house. It couldn't have been more perfect for us. Extremely quiet street, short walk to the beach and bus stop. The rooms were big and very comforting. Our 2 year old son loved watching the golf carts drive by on the golf course. The deck off of the front bedroom was a nice place to unwind at the end of the day. We were so pleased with our stay and we can't wait to return next summer!"
