Excellent Location and Owner

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I have rented this house a few times and every time has been just as wonderful. The house is new and the kitchen is newly renovated with a beautiful island. The kitchen has everything you need to make a big dinner or breakfast or anything, it's very well stocked. Every room is clean and very comfortable. The bedding is very clean and very nice quality. I can't ever fully explain what a wonderful house this is. It's absolutely perfect for a family with 2 young ones but we always go just us and the balcony off the master bedroom is amazing. The street is a small street that I've driven right past so many times, so it's a quiet area, no loud obnoxious teenagers. It's not a party town really. ShipBottom is the town that you first come into after getting off the Causeway (Rt. 72) and onto the Island so you don't have to travel too far from either the North or South side of the island because you're right in the middle. The house is about 4 or 5 houses away from the beach with no streets to cross, it's literally a minute walk away. At night you can hear the waves breaking, ahhh I love it. My fiance and I call it "our house" because we love it so lol. I say it isn't a party town, however that doesn't mean it's boring, there are many things to do just in town and many stores (including a ravioli restaurant) right around the corner within walking distance. The owner of this house, is a wonderful person and very helpful, understanding and flexible. One time when we were down we had to get in touch with him and he left us about 3 or 4 numbers so we could definitely get in touch with him and when I had to call his wife's cell phone she was very polite and had him call me very quickly. I am always more than satisified with this house and I am in love with it. It you want a great vacation rental, this is it. There is not one thing I can say bad about this house. We usually go down in the off-season because we like the quiet and to feel like a local instead of a vacationer lol but the house is always warm (he leaves the heat on for us!!) and it's equipped with the latest technology (internet access, HBO, digital cable and washing machine, dryer, large microwave, etc... ) Even your pets are considered! I could go on and on but it's cutting me off so if you're still not sure and this fits your needs, go for this one, I always come back here because no where I've ever been has been as wonderful.

I love the beach!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter, and I have stayed at Craig's home for the past 3 summers and it is the perfect vacation home for us. We chose his home because we needed a place to stay that is dog friendly and a quick walk to the beach without crossing busy roads. Craig is a pleasure to work with and we have recommended his home to family members who continue to rent from him as well.

Perfect small home by the beach

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at Craig's home for almost 10 years now. We started renting with him because we wanted a home where we could bring our dog. All these years later, our dog has since passed away but we started a family and found this to be the perfect home for us and our little one. I can't recommend his home enough and feel so lucky to get to return to this house each year - it is our home away from home!

Such a great place!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this place. My family and I have stayed in LBI every summer/fall time. We were super bummed that our place we previously stayed in was already rented. We went to this place with caution but learned it is exactly as described. Perfect location, short walk to the beach (around 5-6 homes away), friendly quiet neighborhood. The bay is pretty close too for gorgeous sunsets. The house was perfect, kitchen completely modern, didn't lack for anything. The upstairs deck was a big hit for everyone (including our dogs that got lots of attention from passerby's). The house has wifi and television for rainy days. I am a sucker for the little things like clotheslines and those were even awesome! The place has a modern washer and dryer too! Craig provides many things other homes do not so you don't have to bring the house with you. The house is super clean when you get there and doesn't take much to clean at all upon your departure. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this to everyone but we still want to be able come back there!! This vacation was perfect for us and for our dogs in all. They loved the walks and everyone was so friendly to them. Craig is an awesome person to work with and has a ton of pride in his place!

We just got back from a wonderful time at Craig's house! The house was clean and neat. It was very bright and cherry with a renovated kitchen. The house has a great location, very close to the beach. We really enjoyed sitting on the balcony enjoying our morning coffee! The house is perfect for a family or four, plus it is pet-friendly!!! The house is close to many eateries including mini golf right across the street. We enjoyed walking to the bakery daily, which has the best jelly donuts on the island! Craig was great to deal with!! He kept in touch with us via text message and was very attentive to our needs. From the minute I sent my inquiry in to the minute that I left, Craig was very attentive. I would highly recommend this house to anyone! I can't wait to go back!!! The Ciccarell's

Clean, comfortable house, fantastic location close to the beach on a quiet block, friendly, accommodating owners, and they like dogs. What more could we ask for?
