Best family vacation ever
"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."

"We had a great week in this beautiful house. Every room is impeccably designed and each takes advantage of lagoon and bay views. The outside patio on the lagoon is great for enjoying morning coffee, evening dinners, and make it easy for crabbing, kayaking, or relaxing in the the hot tub. Short walk to beach. Looking forward to visiting this beautiful home again!"

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. :)"

"My wife and son and I stayed here at the end of September, and couldn't get over what a wonderful view this house had! We could walk down the steps of the house and have our toes in the sand in less than a minute...how convenient is that? Plus, this house is within 1/4 mile of Sunset Park, a GREAT place for little ones to climb and burn energy, and only minutes from great restaurants and shops...the house itself had everything we needed: plenty of space, a great outdoor shower, a jacuzzi tub, flatscreen TV with digital cable & VCR, a kitchen with everything we could have needed, and a great deck to grill out on and enjoy the view...we would absolutely stay here again!"
