Bright, Spacious, Comfortable
"We love this house and keep coming back. This was our 6th vacation here and the house was better than ever. It’s definitely our home away from home for a week. The house is spacious, bright, clean, and well-appointed. Each year the owner makes improvements, so it truly gets better each year.
The kitchen has everything you could possibly need to prepare meals, the dining room has a table big enough to fit everyone, and the living room is comfortable with plenty of seating and room for the kids to play. The bedrooms are very comfortable with lots of room for your things and you can’t help but wake up feeling good after sleeping on those beds. The lower level bedroom has an expansive seating area with a pull out couch, making it perfect for visiting families.
There are plenty of beach chairs, boogie boards, and pails and shovels so that everyone is comfortable on the beach, which is accessed via a private walkway. The beach is twice as wide now that the coastal protection project has been completed on this stretch of the island giving everyone plenty of room to enjoy themselves.
There are lots of shops and places to grab a bite to eat within walking distance, and you can drive to any place on the island in minutes. All in all, you can’t beat this house for an easy, relaxing vacation."

Delightful Setting, Charming Condo, Great Location, Rich Amenities, Restful Stay
"My wife and I came with our college aged son and one of his friends. All enjoyed traveling on the Island by car and bicycle. We strongly suggest a trip to the Barnegat Lighthouse and Park. The local dining options run the full gambit from very causal/take out to three star. One week was not enough to experience it all.
The condo itself is pristine and very comfortable. Easily accommodating the four of us. The location couldn’t be better! And it’s fun to sit either at the picnic table, or on the Adirondack chairs on the porch to watch the goings on in the “Marina”. This has to be one of the best locations on the island (we went end to end a few times and even climbed the light house). The ocean beach entrance is two short blocks away. Very relaxing week, and we appreciated the beach passes, a very considerate touch. The barbeque came in very handy for preparing lunches and reheating leftovers from dining out the night before. Other than the coffee pot, the vast array of appliances sat unused.
Our neighbors were all great and very friendly. We enjoyed swimming, surfing, fishing and strolling (the island is flat so there is no real hiking). Hope this rave review doesn’t hurt availability when we plan to come back! ;)"

"This great home is just steps away from the entrance to the beach. It is described accurately in the listing, although the view from the dining room and living room are just outstanding, better than the listing photos show! Upon our arrival last weekend, we were very pleased to enter a spotless house, which is decorated in a very beachy way. The furnishings are so comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped and the owner provides many, many nice amenities. We spent every day on the absolutely beautiful beach, evenings grilling delicious dinners on the wonderful Weber gas grill, and exploring the island with our family. We enjoyed dining at the the Blue Water Cafe and the Boathouse, taking our little granddaughter on her first rides at Fantasy Island, and of course shopping at Bay Village. If our calendars and schedules work out, we would love to return next summer!"
