About Ellen or Phil McKIssick
My family had vacationed at LBI for 10 years before my parents bought this house. My house gift to them was the sign out front that still remains and means so much to us all "AT LAST". AT LAST we finally had a house of our own. And now we travel from Virginia to get there so, AT LAST we have finally arrived!!! The memories have gone on for 4 generations. My husband and I started dating here shortly after my parents bought the home. I was a summer hostess at the Bay View Manor. (Townhouses now) We celebrated our 41st anniversary last July. Our children started coming here as babies and now our grand babies are enjoying the sand between their toes. This home has brought our family and friends so much joy that we are now sharing it with you!
Why Ellen or Phil McKIssick chose South Beach Haven
Who could turn down Morning Coffee on the upper rooftop deck watching the sunrise or reading a great book or enjoying the perfect cocktail watching our beautiful sunsets over the bay. Large comfy living area with open kitchen concept. (by the way fully stocked kitchen with every gadget you could possibly need) This IS the perfect house for a memorable family beach vacation!
What makes this House unique
Love our huge outdoor shower. A must at the beach!

Loved, loved, loved the home!!! Beach Haven needs to do something about the beaches in Holgate, they are horrible, 3’ wide with an 8’ drop. Not suitable for anyone. And the fact that they want you to pay to go on the beach is disgraceful.
The house was located within walking distance to the ocean and bay. Close to a deli for convenience, yet on the secluded, quiet side which we found rather pleasant. House had everything we needed.
Home Away From Home
This was our third year visiting and my family loves staying in this house! The great room, kitchen and dining area are perfect for family gatherings and family game competitions. The kitchen is incredibly well-stocked with tools and equipment for a vacation home so making big family meals is a pleasure. We enjoy our "cocktail hour" on the roof whenever the weather cooperates. We love the accessibility of the beach just a block away and appreciate that the house has beach chairs for everyone readily available.
Home Away From Home
Our family selected this home for a 4th of July family get-together and it was perfect for us. The open design of the family room, kitchen, and eating area was perfect for the 7 of us sharing food, games and conversation. The upstairs roof deck was a real treat for both breakfast and dinner meals, as well as viewing fireworks. The house is tastefully decorated and well-maintained. The kitchen equipment was put together by a real foodie -- there wasn't anything that I needed that I couldn't find. I was able to create wonderful meals easily either stovetop or grill. We would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives. The beach at Holgate is lovely and feels a little more secluded. We enjoyed taking walks/runs every morning since the end of LBI Boulevard wasn't very busy. We also enjoyed shopping and dining in the Beach Haven area.
Beautiful comfortable and well situated
The house is well furnished,immaculately clean and away from the commercial part of the island but just minutes away from stores and restaurants to take care of your needs. The house sits at the tip of the south end of the beach so it's not crowded and minimal traffic. Highly recommended. The owners are a pleasure to work with and extremely hospitable.
Great Time Had By All
We traveled to Long Beach Island from the mid west for a family vacation. The house was wonderful and met all our needs. We loved the open rooms on the main floor and the bedrooms and baths more than met our needs. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook. The deck has amazing views and we often began and ended our days enjoying the ocean breezes. We were a perfect distance from the beach...just by the lifeguard station. The owners left great suggestions for restaurants and places to visit. We especially liked the corner store...we ate too much homemade coffee cake. We are planning to return another summer.
