Recent Harvey Cedars reviews
"We loved our vacation at this beautiful beach house. There were 4 adults and 5 kids and we had plenty of space for all of us. The location was ideal for the beach and bay (one block to both) and walking distance to restaurants and markets. We loved that the kids didn't have to cross the street to go to the beach and that the house had beach chairs, bikes, and kayaks for our use. The home is beautifully decorated and the kitchen is completely equipped with everything you need. It felt like we were at home instead of a rental. We enjoyed the backyard and ate all meals outside. Christina was great to work with, answered all our questions, and returned our deposit very promptly. LBI is charming and not crowded at all. There is a lot of traffic arriving on Saturday, but I imagine this is the case everywhere in the summer at the Jersey Shore. We highly recommend this rental."

Beautiful Beach Home for a Fantastic Family vacation
"This home was truly beautiful & true to the description listed of the property. Our family went on our first vacation together since we were kids to celebrate our mother's 80th birthday. We needed a large home that had easy access to the beach for my elderly mother & my 3 year old son. This home had it all. With six bedrooms & five bathrooms we had plenty of space for the 14 of us.
The king master suite was the room I shared with my husband & 3 yr old son & was perfect because it made it easier for bath time & quick "potty" access. This would also be a great room for an elderly person as it was on the main floor.
The living room was huge & had high ceilings & plenty of windows to allow full access to the outdoors. The furniture in the living room was perfect for a beach home as the leather material was easy to wipe dry should it get damp from a wet bathing suit. It was extremely comfortable as well and most of the seats fully reclined. The porches on each floor of the home also allowed for a nice outside dining experience.
The outdoor shower area came in handy & enabled you to clean off any sand remnants prior to entering the home.
The jacuzzi on the roof a.k.a. the "hot pool" by my son, was by far the best part of the home for most of us. Relaxing in the jacuzzi while looking toward the ocean or over towards the bay is a view not many will get the chance to experience in a lifetime. It was truly priceless.
The large washer & dryer in the basement enabled us to clean laundry on a daily basis so we didn't have to go home with a huge pile of dirty clothes as you often have to after a week's vacation.
There were plenty of beach chairs, umbrellas & toys supplied for our use & there was ample parking. 5-6 cars could easily park by the home.
I would just suggest bringing 1 or 2 security gates if you have a little one & don't want them to traverse the entire home without supervision. I placed a gate by the spiral stairs on the roof while we were in the jacuzzi & put my son's baby pool next to the jacuzzi so we could all enjoy the upstairs experience.
Being in Harvey Cedars allows you to enjoy the tranquility of the island, while being just a short drive away from the hustle & bustle of Beach Haven.
The owners of this home couldn't have been more gracious while we went through the rental process & were available should any problems arise.
We would definitely rent this home again & strongly recommend it as a rental property. We didn't want to leave. :)"

"Excellent house with plenty of room and all of the ementities you could ask for. Felt at home immediately. House is almost too nice for a rental. Wood floors and furniture are a challenge to keep from harm with little kids around. I would suggest glass tops for the tables to help prevent scratching. The house is so clean that it makes you try effortlessly to keep it that way. Not complaining, just expressing compassion for the owner Mark, who by the way is always accessible to answer any questions with a wonderful attitude. We will definetly be back next year if they will have us."

"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."
