Recent Long Beach Island reviews
"My wife, 7 month old son, and I stayed here over Labor Day weekend and really enjoyed our time here. This is a great location, with beautiful views of the bay out of almost all of the house's windows, and it's a short walk to either the ocean-side beach, or a small calm bay-side beach that we found to be perfect for our 7 month old. The deck offered similarly great views of the bay and we did a fair bit of grilling and eating outside there.
If I were you, I would ignore the two star review posted earlier. We hesitated a bit when we read the review, but trust me, the review is more of a reflection of the reviewer than of the house. The house WAS clean and tidy. Yes, it's not a modern, sleek luxury hotel room with top of the line appliances, but the quality of the decor and furniture are right in line with what you'd expect to find in a beach house."

"Great House for large group, we recently stayed - we were 5 families, all with 2 kids each (under the age of 6!), the house large enough to give everyone enough space to themselves. The house is well stocked and finishes are beautiful. 1 very short block to the beach, pizza across the street and loads of ice-cream stores! You never need to drive anywhere. Jim is fabulous to work with."

"Our extended family of 10 has vacationed in great locations on both coasts, and we all agree Dolphin Watch afforded the best of everything: accommodating and available hosts; spacious, airy, well-maintained home; and ideal location half a block from a clean, guarded swimming beach. We love to cook and made good use of the well-stocked kitchen. The sleeping arrangements comfortably accommodated grandparents, two sets of parents, and 4 grandkids, aged 4-14. In the late afternoon and evening, after long days at the beach, we made good use of the 3-level decks for lounging, reading, cooking on the grill, dining, and (on the roof deck) sunset-watching. LBI and surrounds offers innumerable pleasures, but we found so much to love at Dolphin Watch that we never strayed far. Hope to return again and again."

"Stayed at this wonderful home with 2 of my friends for a week. Booked the house sight unseen and we were very pleased by the house. 3 well sized bedrooms. The master bedroom had a small bathroom with a shower and the two other bedrooms shared a large bathroom with a full tub. The kitchen was very nice and included a dish washer. Just about any kitchen utensil we needed was provided. The home also had brand new carpeting put in.
We were pleasantly surprised with the location. 2 small markets were a short drive away and we were within walking distance of an italian deli, bagel shop, pizza place, ice cream store, BBQ restaurant and frozen yogurt stand. We were also walking disatnce to a liquor store and the Surf City Hotel. Looked like a new bar was being rebuilt in back of the liquor store. It was a short three block walk to the beach.
Overall we loved the property and working with the owners. Having a great "home" for the week allowed us to relax and enjoy our vacation."
