About Holly Fazelat

Holly and Alex are lovers of Victorian architecture (read gluttons for punishment ) ;), have owned and remodeled several in the past, and currently own two Victorian homes. Holly grew up on Long Beach Island and will always consider it home. Alex is one of eight children and is used to the provisions of plenty. We fell in love with the original stained glass windows, imported from England in the 1880's.

Holly Fazelat purchased this house in 2005

Why Holly Fazelat chose Long Beach Island

Tired of looking for the perfect family reunion house for large families, we decided to purchase a home we could tailor make to include the needs of multi generations. The location of our home is perfect for members of every age, as the house is located within walking distance of all attractions and stores. The large 4 sided wrap around porch is the ideal place to relax if you choose not to leave the property.

What makes this house unique

Perfect for Family Reunions or for families who vacation together. Great for wedding accommodations, bridal parties, wedding dinners. Full 4 sided wraparound porch for plenty of outdoor living. Steps to the beach with beach badges included with rental.

A great home to reconnect with your family

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated a 50th birthday in 2015 at Holly Haven House, in Beach Haven, NJ. We have a LARGE family with multiple generations. The birthday felt like a long-awaited reunion. I got to meet 3 new members of my family. Everyone had a GREAT TIME!!! The owners could not be any nicer and more accommodating. After the experience that we have had at this gorgeous home, we are already planning a real reunion at this place for 2016. This vacation was worth EVERY PENNY!

Beautiful, charming home perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

The house has every amenity a large family or a large group could want. The inside of the house makes you want to smile, while the porch makes you want to stay there forever. We hope to return again and again. The owners are wonderful to deal with! Thank you!

The perfect large family reunion house!!!

  • 5 of 5

It is always a challenge for us to organize a family reunion because there are 8 married kids and many grand and great grandkids. Bringing everyone under the same roof at the same time takes a lot of patience and time management on everyone’s part. When we finally pulled a reunion together, we were delighted that we had found the Holly House on Center St, in Beach Haven. Everything was within walking distance and a great location for all interests and all ages. We have so many great memories!! Thank you Holly and Alec for your hospitality and sharing your home with us!!! We hope to organize another reunion in 2014 and hope to see you again.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Maggie! As you know, we designed our home specifically for family reunions / large family vacations, as my husband comes from a very large family himself. We were always personally frustrated not to find a single home that could accommodate us all. We like to think we have covered most of the amenities that a large group needs, so it was nice to hear that we hit the mark. Many thanks to you and to your family again, and you are always welcome to return!

Bright, cheerful, comfy home close to beach

  • 5 of 5

I found HHH to be tastefully, yet comfortably decorated with lots of individual spaces to 'be alone' while with a large group. We had a house full of friends for a birthday celebration... great, updated kitchen, large dining room (s), comfy beds, no lines at the bathrooms, and the best, for me, was the huge wrap around porch for gathering or being alone (lots of nooks). We also served meals on the porch, & played cards well into the night with the soft lighting. The well cared for gardens were a nice touch. The house was clean and well maintained and the owner was gracious and accommodating. My friends appreciated the short walk to the beautiful beach & to the village of Beach Haven for dining and entertainment. There was a large rear yard for parking, but we only used cars for visiting the 'Barnegat Lighthouse' I would highly recommend Holly Haven House.

Nearest Beach
500 Miles

Located in the heart of Beach Haven's Historic District, on the southern end of Long Beach Island. The house is located just steps from the beach, with cruises to Atlantic City leaving from the end of the street. Entertainment, stores, restaurants, and amusements are all within walking distance. Park your car in the ample room behind our home, and never get in it again for the rest of your stay. Norman Rockwell-esque ~ this is the perfect location!

Newly renovated beaches by the Army Corp of Engineers after Sandy. Handicapped accessible beach with wheelchairs available. Bathrooms and showers available for use so you never need leave the beach all day.
